Preseason Game 2 – Falcons @ Dolphins

Very important to keep in mind that the first game was really the first action against a different opponent other than each other and the coaches are just trying to see guys execute plays, all the while keeping it simple and vanilla so to speak, not giving any future opponents a real glimpse of what this offense and defense are going to do once the season starts. If you can do that, you probably won’t be so disappointed with what you see.

The first game showed some weakness with our O-line. Once again, not very concerned by that. It has nothing to with the lack of talent our O-line faces in practice against our own D-line (read that a few places), or that our O-line is fat, sloppy and overweight and slower than than last year (read that too). It’s preseason game one and we’re trying guys out at different spots and we all know synergy and continuity is something an O-line lives and dies by. Hard to have synergy with different people all over the place. That’s my take anyway. If the regular season begins and we’re in game 3 and this O-line looks slow, fat and lethargic I’ll let the worries commence.

The decisions at WR are going to be difficult, but Allen Hurns wrist injury just made one decision for them. He’s on IR and my guess is unless we get to get game 8 and we need him, he’ll probably never see action in a Dolphins uni. 2 of our WR’s are ST’s stalwarts and that cannot be overlooked. Jakeem Grant and Mack Hollins almost have to make the cuts because of that alone. Parker, Fuller and Wilson are the 3 vets that look to be locks, although I personally wouldn’t consider Wilson a lock. With the injuries that all 3 vets have endured, and how their spotty availability hurts the team, I wouldn’t consider him a lock. The question is, which young WR’s other than Waddle make the cut? Lynn Bowden Jr., who the Dolphins traded a 4th RD pick for last season would be one I think makes the roster. Preston Williams, the big 6’5 oft injured WR brings talent and size but also the injury bug too. Kirk Merritt has been having a nice 2021 so far but has to be a long shot. I think Ford faces astronomical odds of making the roster. Parker, Fuller, Waddle, Hollins, Grant and then pick one or two more. The rest of the preseason will decide that.

At RB, Salvon Ahmed has got some people giddy but I still think Myles Gaskin in the “lead back”. Not quite the same as Derrick Henry lead back in TEN but I consider him to the be the recipient of the most playing time. If Brown can give us the tough yards and grind out defenses, I think that could really limit Ahmed’s touches, although both Gaskin and Ahmed can catch out of the backfield equally as well, but I think Gaskin is the slightly better player.I don’t which young RB makes the roster out of Scarlett or Doaks or if the veteran Laird makes the cut. I guess the rest of the preseason will tell us the story there as well.

At TE, Gesicki is the clear choice with rookie Hunter Long hobbled by a leg injury and still sporting a thick knee brace. Smythe, Shaheen, Myarick, Tucker and Carter round out the depth there. I know some of you disagree but get Gesicki signed soon before he nets 70-80 catches for a 1000+ yards and 8 TD’s, because then the contract will be much higher than it will be now.

On defense, I really want to see our young OLB get more playing time. I’ve said it before he should be a big difference maker in our difference and if he’s not on the field, rookie Jaelan Phillips won’t be doing that. Hope to see him in action against Atlanta and hope to see good things. On the defensive side, Emmanuel Ogbah is the defense’s Gesicki. Sign him now before his contract is one we can’t afford. Shocked that LB Elandon Roberts is coming off the PUP (Good news!). Vince Biegel has been brought along slowly and despite being activated, I’d expect the same from Roberts.

I still hold to my prediction for the O-line as JACKSON – KINDLEY – DEITER – HUNT – EICHENBERG. Stay tuned. I look for Tua to have a nice game this week. The O-line will be better and the worries will subside. Want to see Phillips make a play or two that make us all think “Wow, this kid is gonna be something”. I want to see some tough, grinding runs from Brown, bullying would be tacklers for extra yards and then watch Gaskin and Ahmed come out looking like world class sprinters. I want to see more good things from Grant on returns and I want to see Gesicki and Waddle make some more big plays. I want positives, less negatives and of course no injuries!

GO DOLPHINS!!!

    The movie Friday Night Lights is dramatized of course, but generally speaking, it accurately reflects the intensity and passion that some small towns in Texas show for the high school football team, and the Friday night games are the biggest thing in that region, they are full on town and local area events. Everyone is involved in some way. Or at least that’s the way it was in the 80s when I lived there.

    The teams I played on in CA weren’t even remotely in the same ball park when it came to the organization and resources allotted to them. LOL, my Rio Americano team was a rich prep school, half the rich kids of the area went there, the other half of the rich kids went to Jesuit down the street.

    Even though it was a great school, the football field (and the baseball field for that matter) was pure garbage. We played our games at another school, because ours wasn’t even fit to practice on. We’d have a few hundred people show up. In Texas, our team was playing in a mini stadium and was backed by thousands, and once the HS teams hit the field, that place was rocking.

    Page turn….so I’ll say it again….lol!

    Texas football….I’ve never seen anything like it.

    Central Texas football, includes ATX and Lakeway (Austin suburb-?), has some of the best teams in the state. Westlake HS is about 2 miles from house and I can hear the HS band on football Friday. Westlake and Lake Travis (Lakeway) have won the state championship 6-7 times over the last 10 years (I think, but don’t want to look it up). Westlake has won the last 2 and is going for a three-peat. Obviously, Westlake and Lake Travis are arch-rivals.

    The “football stadiums” in central Texas are incredible for HS and are state of the art–nothing like I ever saw growing up.

    Track?

    • Krishna says:

      During the Atlanta game, JT was talking to the President of Operations-?, Ken somebody?

      Ken (?) mentioned something about Formula One as part of what they’re doing around the stadium.

  4. Krishna says:

    CK, Friday Night Lights was pretty close to how it is, especially in the small towns across the state.

    The stadium they shot the film was another suburb of Austin in Round Rock. Can’t think of the name of the HS stadium where it was filmed.

    • Krishna says:

      Just looked it up, Pflugerville HS not Round Rock. They are right next to each other.

    • CavalierKong says:

      Permian football…I didn’t realize they shot that near Austin. But yeah, anyone who wants to know what football in Texas is like, just watch that movie. And as you just pointed out that game at the end is in a freakin’ HS football stadium, lol.

      • Krishna says:

        Back then!

        Some of the newer ones (’cause when was that shot?) are wtf when i go out to see the kids at their sporting events

  5. Tim Knight says:

    You guys might be surprised by some of the HS football fields in NJ. Then again there is a lot of wealth in the state so maybe not so surprising. Some of the fields are unbelievable. In Bergen County alone there are private schools Bergen Catholic, Paramus Catholic, Don Bosco, Saint Joseph etc. Lots of them are obviously Catholic schools but they are all well funded. There’s been a bunch of NFL players from these schools.

  6. twicethethe says:

    I remember the JV and varsity practice fields at the school I went to in SFla were very nice, but the Freshman practice field we had to form a line and walk across the field and pick up any broken glass, rocks, etc. before every practice lol

    • Tim Knight says:

      LOL

    • CavalierKong says:

      LOL, and kick out the transients? We had to do that a few times. Rio Americano is right next to the river, so the back of the school is a big levee the entire length of the school. Transients would camp out just on the other side, and sometimes it was clear some shenanigan’s went on during the evening on our field, lol.

      • twicethethe says:

        That sounds kind of crazy….it was never quite that interesting with us. The local kids (not a super great neighborhood around the school) liked to throw rocks and bottles into the field even though it had a six foot fence, probably because it was a private school so hey, why not.

    • Krishna says:

      Yep, brings back memories…..lol

    • stangerx says:

      When we had rugby games on Randall’s Island (NYC) in the 80’s both teams would walk across side by side the field in similar fashion. On top of the stuff you said would have to get rid of a bunch of needles from being a “shoot up spot” the night before.

    I’ve always heard Florida and Texas were big on football including HS. It’s a part of life for them.
    —————
    Agreed, but let’s not forget Pennsylvania. I don’t say that with ‘pride’ for the state I currently reside in, but Pennsylvania has produced some of the greatest players and coaches of all-time.

    It’s been a QB factory, a LB factory, and a Coaching factory.

    • Tim Knight says:

      That is true but I’m not going to mention every state. LOL

      • mf13ss says:

        LOL, but to me, it comes down to 4 states: CA, FL, PA, and TX. These, IMO, are the states that manufacture FOOTBALL players.

      • mf13ss says:

        That’s not to neglect other states such as Ohio, Mississippi, and Alabama… but the very BEST seem to come from the above-mentioned 4 states. Yes, I’m talking about high-school football, too.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Makes sense because they are all really big states.

      • mf13ss says:

        Yet ya never hear about Alaskan football players, right? 😉

      • mf13ss says:

        It’s a cultural thing, this thing we call football.

      • Tim Knight says:

        There was a movie about HS football in Alaska. Can’t remember the name.

        Anyway, football is pretty damn big throughout the country. The NFL is the most popular sport in the country.

  9. steveccnv says:

    Shiner Bock

  10. Krishna says:

    TK, football in Alaska, let alone a movie you can’t remember the name…..lmao!

  11. CavalierKong says:

    MF, no doubt those are 4 of the biggest football player producers. And CA is a big player producer, but football wasn’t treated the same here at the local level as it was in Texas when I was there.

    I’ve lived in small towns in CA, and nobody really cares much about the local HS football teams, at least not in large numbers. One exception is Nevada Union (which is CA), they are the mountain boys that would come down into Sac and destroy most of the local teams. They take their football seriously. And I’m sure there are a few other small cities, but for the most part it isn’t the biggest thing in the towns and cities out here.

    In Texas, at least during the 80s, football was ingrained in the culture on a small town level in all the places I saw. It as the thing to do in small towns. I can’t speak for PA or FL, but CA was absolutely no comparison.

    • Krishna says:

      I grew up in FL, played a variety of sports, but I never saw or experienced football like I’ve seen in Texas.

    • stangerx says:

      Guess we are going to which states produce good players and have great football culture versus where they start. Florida used to get raided back in the day by schools in other states. Just like anybody who thought they were worth anything in the NE was.

      Hear the best QBs come from Hawaii these days though. 🙂

  12. CavalierKong says:

    Tim, I’ve seen that movie. It’s called ‘Cold as F^ck’

  13. Tim Knight says:

    I think Texas wins.

  14. mf13ss says:

    Wow, there was a football movie about Alaskan players?!! That sounds akin to “Cool Runnings”, which IMO was a GREAT movie!

  15. CavalierKong says:

    We used to love going down to the park and playing in the rain and the mud. Out here playing in the rain meant it was probably in the 60’s at worst.

    Then there would be those days it would be ice cold in the 40s or 50s. Those are the days we’d have Nintendo wars, lol.

    Nobody wanted to come home muddy with their balls frozen off. I was always thankful I grew up in a warm state in my teens, because we usually got to enjoy football in the rain. I couldn’t imagine doing it in a place like Alaska.

  16. stangerx says:

    Guess that wasn’t hard to predict with ISIS hanging outside the airport gates. Would suck to be an American or green card holder not inside the perimeter right now.
    ———————————————

    “Two suicide bombers and gunmen attacked crowds of Afghans flocking to Kabul’s airport Thursday, transforming a scene of desperation into one of horror in the waning days of an airlift for those fleeing the Taliban takeover. At least 60 Afghans and 12 U.S. troops were killed”

  17. twicethethe says:

    Wyo, D, BBM and any other Gulf Coast people I might have forgotten….storm in the early stages of brewing in the Caribbean they are predicting might become pretty nasty and arrive Sunday-Monday. Might want to keep an eye out on it though I’m sure you are all already on top of it.

    Completely random

    This video is a thing of nightmares!

      I love this! Saw this last summer. How did they know to be there to capture that footage? Regardless, it’s freaking awesome!

      • CavalierKong says:

        It was on one of the Planet Earth shows. They camp out on those shots for months at a time. I guess this is just daily life for those young iguana. Makes the rush hour home seem a lot less stressssssfull in comparison, lol.

      That whole vid sorta explains why some snakes evolved to have poison. No legs or thumbs can be a disadvantage.

    The F’d iup part is those were the first moments of that little iguana’s life. It had just hatched and dug itself out of the sand. Do do do, what’s this? Oh AHHHHHHHHHH!

    Can someone help me out here? This is the tweet Piggy posted above.

    What are the bluish rectangles on the bottom left of the shot? They look bluish there, they looked greenish on the TV.

    My wife and I saw these during the last game and we were trying to figure out what they are. Are they smaller practice fields? Tennis courts?

  22. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ Twice!

  23. Mike E. says:

    Kong – the William’s sisters are minority owners and likely have something to do with Ross building the Tennis complex

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      It’s supposed to house a huge event in the tennis realm. It’ll be interesting to see how that and the practice facility are oriented in the area from where we tailgate.

    • CavalierKong says:

      Oh yeah, if I’d remembered them, I probably would have figured it out.

      Oh we should

      • twicethethe says:

        Used to live about 15 minutes from Gillette. Now I’m about 45 minutes away. Pats fans at their stadium can be real &#$% though. Maybe they’ll start chilling out if they start losing more.

        Lol…..

  27. son of a son of a shula says:

    If the ball wasn’t jumping out of Tua’s hand the way it is I might be a little more skeptical but…(as Omar says) it’s coming out and it looks as though a man child has tutored at the hands of the master and Marino has enlightened the young subject.

  28. The Flying Pig says:

    I’m enjoying some bourbon 🥃 now

    Taking a day off tomorrow

    So I was thinking about the upcoming season

    And I don’t remember being more excited

    Why am I so excited

    Tua is going to out on a show for us. She’s going to kill it!

    🐖💨💨💨

    • CavalierKong says:

      I’m pretty sure the last time I was this excited about our team and the upcoming season, Dubyah was still president, lol.

  29. wyoming85 says:

  30. Mike E. says:

    LOL Krishna! No doubt

  31. The Flying Pig says:

    Alright here’s another prediction

    Tua passes for 4700 yards in 2021

    Suck on that!

  32. Mike E. says:

    You say Slatterys, I think of this . . .

  33. Mike E. says:

    My friend loves Bullet Bourbon….thoughts?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      It’s great imo

      I always buy from smaller distilleries
      But in terms of anything mass produced – I like bullit

      • Krishna says:

        Nice…he knows this is my only SM, and I’ve shared a few “posts” here.

        He’s a Republican, I’m not, good friend though….lol.

        He loves it on one big cube. Never seen it before….love the block of ice. Nice touch!

    • Krishna says:

      Not a whiskey drinker, just curious…..

    • Mike E. says:

      Bulleit has a bunch of varieties, as most distillers do. I’ve had a few of them, not bad for sure. I’m no aficionado to be fair. I’ve had a bunch of different brands, probably not even 20 yet, at least not that I can remember. lol

    • The Flying Pig says:

      It’s go to at most bars

  35. Krishna says:

    That’s cool Piggy about local. Guess that’s just NY local?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      No. Ny bourbon isn’t good. But some stores in nyc sell local small local distilleries I Kentucky

      There’s a market for smaller distarilies all over – it’s up to the store who they carry

      • Krishna says:

        Ok…what “local” brewery do you like that puts out a better Bullit? And, I’ll buy you both a bottle of it…..commission and appreciation.

        Does that work?

  36. olddolphan says:

    ONE OF THE ESPN CHANNELS rates the Dolphins as 30-1 to win the Super Bowl, the SAME as the Patriots!!! That said, Miami has far more “studs” than do the Patsies. By year’s end it will be obvious, barring an unexpected rash of Dolphin injuries.
    —————
    FOR THE FIRST TIME in 3 seasons, my season tickets arrived BEFORE the first Miami home exhibition game!! Maybe it was a “thankyou” from Mr. Ross for having season tix for over 50 years??? – – Naw. That’s NOT his style. They arrived exactly ONE DAY before the game while I was in north Georgia for a convention. TOO LATE to either use them or sell them!! – – That’s more like the “Little Stevie Blunder” I know.
    —————
    LOCAL TAMPA BAY sports commentator predicting Ross will sell the team if Miami makes it to the playoffs. REASON?? Fins franchise will be WORTH MORE if they win a playoff game, which has NEVER HAPPENED during his many years as principal owner. PLUS, if he waits too long, a future hurricane may spoil those nice tennis courts he just spent so much money on. I don’t need another reason to root for the Dolphins. My 50+ years as a mega-fan proves that! But if winning even ONE playoff game enhances the chances of getting rid of “the Ancient failure of an owner,” then, by golly, I’M ALL FOR IT!!!!
    ————–
    GOOOO-O-O FINS!!!

    • olddolphan says:

      MIKE E: HAPPY upcoming birthday!!
      Would a nice drubbing of the Patsies in Foxboro make a nice birthday gift??

    • Krishna says:

      Go fins OD. Did you you see the drone coverage of the Dolphin complex? Ross does spend HIS money on the Dolphins as do you. He just spends more! Lol!

      • olddolphan says:

        KRISH: ROSS doesn’t have ONE SINGLE PLAYOFF VICTORY to show for all the money he has spent over the last decade and a half.
        ———-
        I, on the other hand, have seen my boys go to 5 Super Bowls during my long tenure, which is 5 more than Ross has seen. There’s “spending money” and there’s “spending money effectively.”

        Y’all have a GREAT evening. This Old Dolfan’s headed for the bed!!

      • Krishna says:

        Nope, he doesn’t, but I think he’s tried the best way he knows how.

        You can’t fault him for not trying l, risking (for you, throwing away his money), taking on and owning his mistakes.

        He’s a rich fucking dude who wants to play football at 70-80 yo and will do anything to accomplish that.

        I don’t get it….

    Got my season tix ages ago. Parking passes were a little slow and I was traveling, so my account rep comped me Black parking passes electronically. I like Steve Ross.

        You aren’t clueless anymore than the rest of us. Bullit is a good brand.

        THere are many non-brand names out there – you just have to see what Your local liquors star Has So to me, good liquor. Is about what’s available tp you.

  40. CavalierKong says:

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one:

    A pig walks into a liquor store…

  41. Tim Knight says:

    So what’s your confidence level in Tua? 1-10, I say 7 as of now. I do think he has special in him. His feet and instincts impress me. Oh right he’s very accurate too. 😉

    • CavalierKong says:

      I’m at a max 10 confident that he is a better QB than last year. He’s clearly healthy, stronger, his footwork looks good, his arm looks more live than last year, he’s confident, and he’s making decisions faster. And the offense is built to his strengths.

      It’s all a matter of degree now. Has he progressed enough in all these areas to beat good defenses? I’m at somewhere around a 6 that he has. I’m still hesitant until we see it in real games.

      We’ll start off with a very good Pets secondary and a Belicheat defense. I’m excited to see if this offense is going to have the ability to stress even really good defenses because of the sheer number of playmakers we can throw at you, and an offense built to use them.

      Let’s dominate the Pets right out of the gate, and announce we are now one of those teams you might sometimes contain, but if we are on our game, you won’t stop us.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Fair enough. He practices against a Belichick defense everyday. The multiple looks up front and lots of good DBs.

        Tua looks so much better with his feet and confidence. I get it though. Games that count are key. If he becomes the lefty Drew Brees which is what I see, we’re going to be very happy fans. 🙂

      • Krishna says:

        So much more eloquent than me….lol.

        He looks night and day compared to last year, imo.

        Try not to live in the past…..

    • The Flying Pig says:

      10

    • steveccnv says:

      It’s so hard to say at this point, maybe a 7, last year he was a 5

      If he continues with his PS play, then he goes up to an 8, win a playoff game up to 9, and SB 10

      Comparing Tua to Herbert is like comparing Brady to Marino, not saying either youngster are anything close to their elders…just styles

      Brady and Tua can move the ball up and down the field, with their short passes accurately, making them hard to stop

      Marino and Herbert will wow you with the great play, can score on any given play

      Biggest difference is Tua like Brady will get you that 1st down more consistently, when you absolutely must have it

      Think Herbert will run into accuracy issues with the game on the line this year, he’ll still have great stats, but wins won’t equal his stats

      Tua won’t have the Herbert stats, but will win more games

  42. Tim Knight says:

    LT Jackson (2nd)
    LG Kindley (2nd)
    C Deiter (3rd)
    RG Hunt (2nd)
    RT Davis (7th)/Eichenberg (Rookie)

    TE Gesicki (4th)

    WR Parker (7th)
    WR Wilson (8th)
    WR Waddle (Rookie)

    QB Tua (2nd)
    RB Gaskin (3rd)

    To me this is the main opening day starters on offense if healthy.

    Two big receivers and quickness at three spots. They can all run. Tua can scoot about as well.

  43. New Age says:

    Tim,

    I think a 7 as well. He looks a lot better and we have better weapons too which will help him win. A 7 is just good to me and I think we will be good not great this year. If our WRs play and we stay healthy overall, I’m expecting 11 wins.

  44. steveccnv says:

    Haven’t tried many, but Jameson is my favorite

    The way I look at Tua this year as compared to last year is this. He was a rookie QB who came into the league with no training camp or preseason. He was coming off a major injury, still healing and then trying to master a playbook and all the responsibilities of a QB without two major facets of the season, TC and PS. Now healthy, and obviously put tons of time working his body to be better balanced, stronger, more durable, as well as having the full complement of training camp practices (As the starter), he’s light years ahead of where he was this time last season. Easy to say a 10 as to where he is now as compared to where he was.

    • steveccnv says:

      In the pocket last year, he threw like he had a 50 yr old body

      This yr he’s got his youth back

      I judge young QBs on how they handle 3rd or 4th and short, 3rd and long and how they play on the last drive of a game trailing by 8 or less

      Master those 3 situations and you’re a great QB

      Tua has mastered the first 2 in PS, can he continue that in the RS and win games at the end?

    • steveccnv says:

      They’re trying to blame it on climate change

      Yeah the highs this year have been hotter, than other years, but we’ve had a very mild summer with highs many days in the 90s, last year it was over 100, over 100 consecutive days

      Recently it’s been cooler than normal in the west

      The problem is the drought, the forest is too dry and they don’t maintain the dead stuff adequately enough

      It rains on earth the same amount every year, some areas get an abundance from year to year, while others get less

      In Tahoe they’ve been making snow at ski resorts for the last 30 or so years, something unheard of before that

    • steveccnv says:

      I got an idea, instead of giving out free money, put some of these slackers out in the forest and let them clean up some dead brush

  46. steveccnv says:

    Think our team lines up perfectly with the 2023 huge cap increase

    We should be able to retain anyone we want and not worry about the cap

    90% of Hurricanes in the Gulf do a bend at the end , right before landfall, at least from the Louisiana part through the big bend in FL. So if it looks like its coming right at NO, then its probably gong to hit just west of me putting me on the left side, if it looks like its coming at me its going to hit Mobile and put me on the east side. so i generally look at anything coming at NO to Mobile, but if it looks lie its dead on Mobile then its hitting BBM pretty straight on or just west of him. With Wyoming it doesn’t bend as much and his is more if it looks like Galveston to Beaumont he is probably going to take the brunt of it.

    • D says:

      So this one look more like its going to be my turn again, at this time

      • wyoming85 says:

        Ya it seems to be following the high pressure as it moves East.

        But, it could do anything still!

    • steveccnv says:

      That’s why I don’t want to move to the gulf side of FL

      The east side of a hurricane is the dirty side, that does more damage

      Any hurricane hitting any place on the west side of FL will mostly get the dirty side, until it makes landfall, but even then your chances of getting that dirty side are greater

    • D says:

      Sorry got my right and lefts backwards lol. Just noticed.

  49. D says:

    Climate change is because of over population, so maybe we can convince a lot of climate change people to get on board with seppuku as the answer to the problem. I know AOC wants us to eat babies, but lets go with the ones that are most dedicated i think. Just seems more honorable that they lead this charge 🙂

  50. D says:

    After looking at the tracking its possible ill only catch the mid to outer bands of the east side, will be rough winds but might not be bad, if it continues to push east though…. guess we will see by tomorrow afternoon.

      Belicheat took a look at our WRs and said “We need another guy”.

      • steveccnv says:

        5th rd pick, that the drafting team gave up on b4 the season isn’t someone that’s going to do anything significant on the field any time soon

      • CavalierKong says:

        He won’t have anything t do with our 1st game for sure, and I don’t know anything about the guy other than Rapoport calling him high ceiling.

        Ravens fans don’t appear to happy about it, so I don’t know that it was the Ravens giving up on him. It might have been a case of no room for him, just like we’re going to trade or cut one or two good WRs.

    Holy shit. The construction crew was at the property next door at 5am 😳 This will be interesting going forward .

    There’s a movie in this story.
    ————————————-

    With the Taliban growing more violent and adding checkpoints near Kabul’s airport, an all-volunteer group of American veterans of the Afghan war launched a final daring mission on Wednesday night dubbed the “Pineapple Express” to shepherd hundreds of at-risk Afghan elite forces and their families to safety.

    Moving after nightfall in near-pitch black darkness and extremely dangerous conditions, the group said it worked to move people, sometimes one person at a time, or in pairs, but rarely more than a small bunch, inside the wire of the U.S. military-controlled side of Hamid Karzai International Airport.

    The Pineapple Express’ mission was underway Thursday when the attack occurred in Kabul. Two suicide bombers believed to have been ISIS fighters killed at least 13 U.S. service members — 10 U.S. Marines, a Navy corpsman and an Army soldier and one to be determined.

    There were wounded among the Pineapple Express travelers from the blast, and members of the group said they were assessing whether unaccounted-for Afghans they were helping had been killed.

    As of Thursday morning, the group said it had brought as many as 500 Afghan special operators, assets and enablers and their families into the airport in Kabul overnight

    This is from yesterday, and I think it’s great…

    • steveccnv says:

      I believe Tua’s RPO is why they drafted him over Herbert

      Do you want big play or unstoppable, because of accuracy

      Cheats showed against the Steelers who wins that matchup every week

      In basketball do you want the great 3 point shooter, that can light you up when hot or someone like Shaq/Kareem, that will score at will every game

    Ben Volin on WQAM stating that the Patriots will be the #2 team in the AFC East, ahead of the Dolphins. He’s eatin too much chowdah!!!!

    • bailbondmike says:

      Pats are going to sport a massive run game and a tough D as always. I think the evil genius has retooled their offense to where they don’t need a top 10 QB to win. They will be pounding the ball.

      With our secondary, I bet that will be the game plan against us and Cam will start.

      • steveccnv says:

        It worked last year

        McKinney will be big in this game, if not it’s going to be a long day

    • steveccnv says:

      He’s a Homer, what do you expect him to say?

      • Mike E. says:

        I hear ya, of course that’s part of it, but he reiterated a few times he’s not high on Tua and thinks the Patriots are the better team.

      • steveccnv says:

        Because he’s too busy getting high on something else

  59. mf13ss says:

    I think — at least on paper — that we can stop the Patsie* running game. Keep a hat on Cam Newton, and all should be well. Yes, I’m projecting Cam to be their starter in week 1.

    • steveccnv says:

      From what I saw last week they’ve got Phillips setting the edge first, this I believe was done to prepare for the cheats run game

      • steveccnv says:

        And the U75s, as they typically do, have no clue what’s going on, so they report it as he hesitated too much

      • mf13ss says:

        Perhaps! We’ll soon see, and the regular season can’t get here fast enough for me, man!

    • stangerx says:

      Maybe you are right, but not so sure Cam starts. Media is all about Mac Jones all over it and Newton blowing it bac with Covid protocols. But may just be the thing to write about of the week. Cam sure did crush us good in the first Pats game last year.
