    So sorry about your parents. I’m glad you’re doing well though! Good to hear from you and hopefully will become more frequent even with our team’s woes

    • ukfinfan says:

      Thanks New Age. There’s a saying in soccer – form is temporary, class is permanent. for me, woes are temporary – a desire for us to win is permanent!

  2. pheloniusphish says:

    So caught up with the board and sense a theme. Guess I shouldn’t have gotten that “let’s go Brandon” tattoo?

  3. D says:

    Look, the fuck Joe Biden or let’s go Brandon is childish, it’s classless, but it’s also not what it’s being made out to be. I have heard CNN reporters saying it’s a domestic terrorism, that it’s equivalent to saying let’s go ISIS. Lol I mean come on.

    The hypocrisy is that during the Oscars, Robert De Niro gave a 10 minute rant about Trump and said Fuck Trump onore than one occasion during that. He was applauded and heralded by the media. I mean you can’t have it two ways, demonize it all or let it all play out. It’s a form of protest, and free speech allows for it.

    I’m not pro Trump anti Trump I wish Trump never existed and I wish we could just move the fuck on, but talk about this in the vein of what was allowed during trumps administration and what they are attempting bto censor now and that’s a huge issue. I mean they have resorted to turning down the crowd noise just to avoid it, did they do that before. Nope.

    In summation my feeling is we have already crossed the line in what’s socially acceptable behavior and what is allowed to be criticized by the media and the populist, either the other side needs to pull up their big girl panties and start accepting they helped create this mess or they need to get some thicker skin. Again pro trp anti Trump whatever, fair is fair one way or the other. If they want it swapped back to no criticism they sure have a lot of apologizing to go for their behavior during Trump’s administration.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I haven’t really been watching the news so I don’t know what people on cnn, msnbc or Fox have said about it

      So I can’t speak to it

      I just think the phrase is slightly embarrassing

      If you want to say fuck joe Biden, just say fuck joe Biden
      You have every right to say fuck joe Biden if you feel that way , it’s practically your duty in America to speak your mind about the President, even if other people disagree with you or this 🐷 thinks your wrong

      I can respect that. I don’t really respect secret decoder ring bs

      To me the phrase speaks to a bigger problem in conservative politics today and that’s this conspiracy laced projection. You don’t have to hide your criticism of Biden and in fact many people don’t – but a ton do and have devised this scheme that they have to do that bc the “media elite” will suppress it.

      I also think there’s way too much people who are upset that people are adverse to one another. The country is designed to withstand different opinions and different positions on things. It’s actually good to have much different ideas even if you hate some some of those ideas

      I promise you, many people hate my ideas: so what – I’m a big boy and can take it

      And that strikes at the heart of what I said about “let’s go Brandon” being a silly code. If you have a strong opinion about subjects – guess what, people will disagree with you. That’s how opinions work. Deal with it

      Don’t come up with codes bc you think their is some mass conspiracy to suppress your ideas. The media and cnn or whatever is probably going to have a problem with some of your ideas. They have a problem with mine and so do many of you guys – but I expect it when I express myself. I expect people to disagree.

      • sb7mvp says:

        People WERE saying F Joe Biden, but the media said they were saying something different and the right just ran with it. They didn’t come up with the phrase, but they did take it as their own. I agree that it’s stupid because it’s like a bunch of kids who think their cool for saying codes for something in front of adults.
        You’re also ignoring the rampant conspiracy laced projection from the left. The conservatives don’t own conspiracy theories

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I am aware of the origin.

        The fact is, a media personality not wanting to say “fuck” and the air doesn’t equate to massive conspiracy to suppress criticism of joe Biden

        I think saying “conservatives don’t own conspiracy theories”
        Completely undermines the extent of its effect on conservative politics today.

        Republicans just spent the the last 2 years changing election laws based on fraud they can’t prove occurred. And when you confront them about losing cases to try to prove that fraud, its just opens the door to more allegations of conspiracies

        That’s real legislation that exists now. It’s not just an argument it’s law now

        It’s not just conspiracy talk by the fringes of people with radical wild ideas.

        People instinctively want to say both sides are at fault. We all want to be reasonable at some level. But I think you are missing the big picture when you default to that.

        Let’s go Brandon as a secret code for Fuck Joe Biden is cut from the same cloth as:

        The election being rigged
        Vaccines are bad for you
        There’s a caravan of immigrants coming
        The deep state
        Globalization is evil
        Etc etc…

        It’s the prevailing force in conservative politics today. And really, if the staple of conservative politics is that government is bad, it’s a pretty easy sell, because your audience is already predisposed to believe government is bad and has a hand in many bad things

        Anyway, more importantly I don’t hide my politics

        I let people know I hate the contemporary state of conservative politics today. And so what – people get mad at me and disagree. That’s not the apocalypse.

        At least I’m hitting my target 🎯

        let’s fo Brandon by conservatives is taking their eye off the ball – it’s not criticism that can persuade some one who isn’t all in, it’s rallying people that already agree with you. Which might work I guess when it comes to winning an election…

        I guess we will see and I deal with whatever results happen.

        But I wouldn’t do it – it’s not for me

  4. The Flying Pig says:


    Really great to see you again in here

    My condolences about your parents. I’ve lost family members in the last few years too, so I know it’s sadder than you expect it to be

    But that said, don’t be a stranger here. It’s good to communicate with friends even when it’s via internet and they all want to make you into breakfast 🐖

    • ukfinfan says:

      My condolences to you too Piggy – I hadn’t realised.

      Got my girlfriends ma n pa staying with us this weekend and was just discussing going to the local (award winning and supplier to the Queen) butchers for ingredients for a “full English” for Sunday morning. Back bacon (proper rashers with lean meat), Old English pork sausages and black pudding (blood sausages) all essential ingredients I’m afraid. I realise you will need to lower your pants (if present so early) and fart in my general direction. I’m prepared. 😣

    You stated the politics complaints is 100% Trump supporters and that’s a pretty wide brush, isn’t it? It may be a few Trump supporters but most have been very controlled in not talking about the daily foibles of the president. Far less is said than anti-Trump statements during his mistakes. Did you just not post here much from 2017 until Biden? Did you forget David posts here and he hates Trump? Again, 100% sounds ridiculous.

    You mentioned LGB as the dumbest thing you’ve seen in 10 years which seems crazy. It’s not nice and is pretty dumb but dumbest thing you’ve seen? Do you just come here? Your statements are one sided hyperbole so I was just calling it out.
    No, this is what I said:
    “The people on this blog who complain the most about politics being discussed here are the biggest reason why things turn bad in the discussions and it’s all the Trump fans. I have no problem saying it, because it’s 100% true.”

    “complain the most about politics being discussed here” being the key phrase. I’m not talking about people who make political posts. I’m talking about people attacking people for making political posts (even when the posts aren’t political), but are also the very people who drag this blog down in unnecessary political discussions.

    New paragraph so different topic. Yes LGB is the dumbest thing I’ve seen in the last 10 years. That’s my personal opinion. You’re free to disagree. What should have been a 24 hour meme cycle and died has become some weird movement like a bunch of kids who learned how to say cuss words/ talk dirty in front of their parents and get away with it. It’s been going on for weeks like it’s something brilliant and clever when it’s not. I don’t have a political affiliation. I’ve voted once in a major election and it was for third party. I just want people to be grown ups.

  6. New Age says:


    I was thinking about you this morning. All sweet and maple glazed. Matched perfectly with some fluffy eggs and toast with blackberry jam. Yum, yum!!

  7. New Age says:


    Good points and Piggy had some as well. I don’t think any opinion should be neutered but usually respect if people want to beer away from certain topics. I guess I proved your point though so my bad.

    LGB is terrible no doubt. There are better ways to show a biased and propagandist media, at least over a longer period. It has lasted way too long and I’m sure people who make garbage shirts and cups are glad for the constant business.

    Thanks for the rebuttals. I stand corrected.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I may be in the minority on this

      But I personally don’t have a problem with it being immature or hostile

      I can tell you I say a lot of childish and hostile things about trump
      And I don’t regret it one bit

      I’m not looking for an olive branch with people I disagree with
      I would rather know exactly where people stand on issues

      • New Age says:


        I agree. I want honesty and people agree and disagree with each other all the time and that’s supposed to be normal. You’re different than me in many ways and yet cannibals think we both taste delicious even though I’d disagree. There’s only one ‘the new white meat’ and pork producers promised it wasn’t me.

        I don’t think you can communicate well if you can’t say what you think. You can’t find common ground and most people have lots of common ground as humans. We both agree Trump is a turd, Grier is a turd, and Ross is a turd. Politically, we will probably always disagree. How can I ever learn your thoughts though if I’ve already put an apple in your mouth? Does that even add to your deliciousness at all? Inquiring minds want know

  8. pheloniusphish says:

    Since there seems to be some confusion about what it means:

  9. ocalarob says:

    I blame all this political talk on Tua! after all if he didn’t suck we would all be happy talking football!

    Damn him!!!!

  10. pheloniusphish says:

    Ultimately, I blame Stanger for everything. After all, he voted for Biden and his vote put Biden over the top. How could Miami win after that?

  11. D says:

    The let’s go Brandon thing to me was meant to mock the media since it was a left leaning media source that create it in the first place to cover for what was really being said. I tend to agree completely with piggy on the matter the let’s go Brandon is silly and childish, the shouldn’t hide it in code, just openly express their discontent by saying fuck Joe Biden. You could argue decorum in not also saying that, but decorum left years ago never to return.

  12. CavalierKong says:

    All I know is every time you guys mention ‘Brandon’, I always picture the ‘Brandon’ scenes from the Scary Movies.

    I think it actually would work quite well as a big eff you from conservatives to Biden, probably more so than the current Brandon thing, lol

  13. Mike E. says:

    Piggy, I have to say, I will never understand why anyone, and I mean anyone rails against voter ID. If you’re a registered voter and everyone has to produce ID that they are who their ID says who they are, they can vote. Unless you’re up to underhanded behavior, it shouldn’t be an issue. I brought my ID and expected to me asked for it. I wasn’t. I was disappointed. A signature does not verify who you are, if they really even look

    • stangerx says:

      As far as I know about some of the voter ID proposals I’d have to go get one when could could show up at the polls with my driver’s license, passport and full voter registration info. Why do I have to get something more to vote than I need to fly to other countries?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Voter ID at the polls has very little or nothing to do with the election laws the republicans passed

      That is just not the legislation that passed in these states

    • stangerx says:

      Would have laughed but it is so sad.

      “A man in Looneyville, West Virginia, allegedly killed his father-in-law with a leaf blower during a dispute over a pig last month.” – you can’t make that shit up.

      • CavalierKong says:

        When I saw the name of the town, I had to doublecheck I wasn’t reading an article from The Onion.

    • Ken says:

      How is that even possible?

  14. stangerx says:

    Some about Covid, but not all. US did worse than every country except Russia. And over 2 years is a lot.

    The United States had the second-steepest decline in life expectancy among high-income countries last year during the pandemic, according to a study of death data spanning several continents. The only country studied that saw a starker overall trend was Russia.

    The study, published Wednesday in The BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal), assessed premature death in 37 countries, comparing observed life expectancy in 2020 with what would have been expected for the year based on historical trends from 2005-2019. Life expectancy dropped in 31 of these countries during the pandemic.

    The U.S. trend was among the worst.

    U.S. men saw life expectancy fall by nearly 2.3 years, from about 76.7 to 74.4. Women lost more than 1.6 years of life expectancy, from about 81.8 to 80.2.

  15. CavalierKong says:

    I look at the picture and I can’t help but wonder if a drug that rhymes with Beth came into play somehow…

  16. herdfan says:

    My daughter called me earlier today, we were chatting as she walked to class at Marshall. She says wait a minute, I think someone was just hit by a car. Very sad thing, 23 yr old female, dead at the scene. I literally felt sick. Also guilty that I was glad it wasn’t my child because if she had been there a minute earlier, could have been her.

  17. The Flying Pig says:

    New Age

    Did you know that they stick an apple in pigs mouth bc a pigs mouth expands while it cooks?

    You guys just try to get me heated with your conservative arguments and see if I shut up!

  18. Ken says:

    So essentially for most of the day on the blog there has been a discussion about the politics of discussing politics

  19. stangerx says:

    Make of this from Barry Jackson what you will.

    “Waddle, considered one of the fastest receivers in recent drafts, has been thrown just five passes that traveled at least 20 yards in the air and has caught only one of them, for 36 yards. Fifty-two NFL receivers have been thrown more deep balls than Waddle.”

  20. Krishna says:

    Losing a loved one is never easy….sorry for your loss. I completely relate….

    And, thankful to hear your take!

  21. mf13ss says:


    Great to see ya on the board again! My condolences to you and yours, man. I wish I could take the pain away. 😦

  22. Krishna says:

    If you think football success starts without a qualtity line, you never played football, clueless, or just ignorant like most talking heads/dipshits….lmao.

  23. Krishna says:

    Chili gueuros on a beach…like a spicy bloody Mary, but with in a shot glass…of course, doubles are better….lol

  24. stangerx says:

    Aaron Rodgers lied about being vaccinated, and now has Covid (drop him if have in FF). Thing is he didn’t have too.

    The NFL does not require the vax. Only some extra precautions if don’t have it. He is getting crushed in the media now cause didn’t want extra tests and maybe wearing a mask in some situations.

  25. mf13ss says:

    I’ve got no problem discussing or debating ANYTHING that is posted here, as I’m pro-#1A. Nobody should be silenced or shamed. Just stay away from the personal insults and it’s all good. It’s actually HEALTHY to have discussions and debates, so long as one can accept another’s take.

    If one’s skin is too thin, then don’t bother posting something that will likely get a polar-opposite response… and we know these topics to be about politics and religion.

    And I’m getting tired of this “victim card” accusation BS… that’s a cop-out excuse for not knowing what to say. NOBODY plays the victim card on this blog as far as I know, and that especially includes myself. I’ve seen gas-lighting from certain folks on here, but no victim card playing.

    Another thing… some want to talk about NOT talking about or replying to political posts, yet they LABEL others for their ‘behavior’ (ie: “Trump supporters”)… not cool. That’s gas-lighting to totally disrespect their political opponents. Again, not cool… and talk about hypocrisy.

    If anybody wants to enter the political arena on here, let’s be honest: chances are you’re going to get some blowback of sorts being it’s a 50-50 nation. So long as there’s no name-calling and personal shots taken at another, I find it to be healthy… but boy that’s rare on here.

    Lastly, we should ALL try better to use better manners (me included) when it comes to communicating with fellow posters. At the end of the day, we ALL come here for a reason: love for our Phins and general respect for one another.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I didn’t mean you or anyone else on any of my posts, just for the record

      Not sure if you meant this for me or anyone else, but just for clarity I did not have any individual in mind, certainly no one here in mind and not you

      I agree – 50-50 shot you get it right back if you enter that arena
      I don’t think that’s a problem either
      I think that’s the way it’s supposed to work

      • mf13ss says:

        Pigster, NO… I did NOT have you in mind when I posted this, man. You and I seem to agree more and more with age, Bro. If anything, I was agreeing with one of your posts from above.

        If one doesn’t want funk, then don’t post something that can cause funk. And if one is too thin-skinned to get a rebuttal, perhaps that one shouldn’t be posting about it.


  26. Krishna says:

    Glad you’re finally stepping up to the plate…we shall see.

    Victims always blame others for their shortcomings….kudos.

    Like baiting….lol

  27. Ken says:

    Last I checked I thought this was a Miami Dolphins fans football blog. I must have been mistaken

  28. Krishna says:

    We are cool mf13ss. Just stay true and you have my respect.

  29. stangerx says:

    Just Barry Jackson talking, but these numbers are less than we were talking about before. Gesicki goes for a lot more than that on the open market. And we can keep him no matter what he wants.

    “The Dolphins could keep Gesicki by giving him a new contract or giving him the franchise tag (projected to be $10.8 million for tight ends) or the $9.3 million transition tag.”

  30. Krishna says:

    If we ever use our TEs as a weapon, I will probably….lmao. Not fit for reading…lol

  31. Krishna says:

    Sitting on CR Beach con mucho Chili Gueros after negotiating with bank terms for acquisition….all is good. 🤣

  32. Rockphin says:


  33. Rockphin says:

    Panthers goooooooaaaallllll!!!

  34. CavalierKong says:

    “At the end of the day, we ALL come here for a reason: love for our Phins and general respect for one another.”

    Just speaking for myself, but the only reason I show up here for the free continental breakfast.

  35. CavalierKong says:

    The problem we have facing us this offseason is we can’t franchise both Gesicki and Ogbah, and we absolutely cannot let Ogbah walk. He’s easily our best front 7 player.

  36. Rockphin says:


  37. CavalierKong says:

    LOL, Rock, if it had just been another woman’s bagel, it probably would have been a less intense fight.

    This fight was because she made one for herself and asked if I wanted one; I said I didn’t, then decided I wanted just a single a bite of hers, and she was intractable in her refusal…

    So right then and there I made homemade breadsticks and refused to let her have any…and then it was on.

    Ahh, to be young again 😂😂😂

  38. The Flying Pig says:

    Raise your hand if you think the will fuller signing was a bad signing

  39. The Flying Pig says:

  40. Rockphin says:

    Ken, you don’t need a room with walls covered in pictures and yarn connected


    4-1 lol

    By thumb tacks to make that connection

  41. stangerx says:

    Those DEs are pricey. I like Ogbah but don’t see us franchising him. Looking at $16 to $17 mil.

  42. ocalarob says:

    Watson and Fuller were a dynamic duo last year, i think that’s why watson prefers miami, fuller and wilkins are here

  43. Rockphin says:

    Damnit guard the goal!!

    Couldn’t agree more ER.

    I do find some of the stuff on here much akin to a zoo crossed with a kindergarten at times. For my personal taste, “bustin balls” steps way over the line to personal attacks too often. But then there are a lot of posters who also do this
    are you talking about comments like this?

    Ken says:
    November 4, 2021 at 8:34 pm
    So we would have 2 players that don’t get on the field. Another brilliant statement

  45. ocalarob says:

    listen i’ll just go away for the night and you guys can continue your interesting dialouge.
    have a great night.

    Ah yes now the butt hurt card
    ^damage control after posting a stupid comment^

  47. bailbondmike says:

    Anyone watching this game tonight? If so, did you see the TD run by Hines of the Colts? That was a perfect example of why we need to abandon this RPO shit. Their OL fired off that line. They didn’t have to worry about staying close to the LOS. The OC, RG and RT were 7 yards down field plowing the defense.

    I think this regression of our OL is directly attributed to this RPO crap. They were playing better second half of last season. Then they come into a new season and instead of building on last year, they throw this RPO wrinkle at them.

    Opposing defenses are firing off the line and our OL is busy trying to figure out if it is a run or a pass. Get rid of it.

  48. CavalierKong says:

    Joe Buck just called Joe Namath one of the best pure passers to ever play. Is that true? I always thought he was not really that great a QB, but had that iconic win over the Colts that will live forever.

    • mf13ss says:

      Joe Buck is… Joe Buck, LOL.

      Joe Namath is one of the worst QBs of his era, let alone NFL history.

    • Ken says:

      In the time he played he was pretty awesome. He threw his share of ints but it was a different game and contact was allowed in coverage. He was the first 4000 yard passer. You look at his numbers but that don’t look great compared to today’s QBs and they don’t look great. But he and Unitas were really vanguard of the transition of the NFL from a run oriented game to a pass oriented game. He was feared by opposing defenses every week

    • Tim Knight says:

      He was the first 4,000 yard passer. Before knee injuries he was very good.

  49. mf13ss says:

    Pigster, reply for you up the board! We’re good, dude.

  50. CavalierKong says:

    I appreciate the responses guys, guys. It was well before my time, so I only know what I see in footage films and by what people say. And I know he’s a QB that inspires different opinions, because I’ve heard some people say he was great, others say he wasn’t very good. I just don’t recall ever hearing him called one of the best pure passers.

    • Ken says:

      I am old and live in the suburbs of NYC and watched him a lot when I was growing up. He was real good. Lighting fast release and great against the blitz. He was the prototypical gunslinger

      • CavalierKong says:

        I figured a couple of you NY guys probably watched him live, and would be in the know. Cheers 🙂

    • mf13ss says:

      This is HOFer Kurt Warner doing the breakdown on Tua.

      • mf13ss says:

        Something Kurt Warner never mentioned that I will mention, is that there needs to be better spacing between our receivers. I mean, if ya throw to WR1, DB2 is right there within 5 yards to make a play on the ball if DB1 can’t make a play on the ball.

        NONE OF THIS is the fault of Tua, either! Our OCs are a joke.

    • Ken says:

      Don’t tell ORob

  51. ocalarob says:

    MF 13, i had seen that video, look at the patterns they run every rec is within 10 yards of the LOS, always at least 10 defenders in that zone as well, the word is out, make Tua beat you deep.
    he doesn’t have the arm

    • mf13ss says:

      Is it that Tua doesn’t have the arm (look at his college tape), or is it that our 3 OCs don’t know what the hell they are doing?

      I fundamentally disagree with ya, yet… I have come to RESPECT your takes. Perhaps… perhaps… the coaching staff knows something that we don’t? I dunno, but I’ll never disrespect ya, Bro.

      • ocalarob says:

        I know you’re good people MF 13, you would think that some of the moderators around here should hold themselves to a higher standard for the sake of the site instead of baiting a confrontation. maybe they can correct themselves over time.

      • mf13ss says:

        You’re a great dude yourself, my man ORob. I think the way you and I handle biz to agree to disagree should be a model for the rest.

        I REALLY disagree with you about Tua, for example. Yet, I’ll NEVER call you names, and vice-versa. I RESPECT you, sir.

  52. ocalarob says:

    the real truth is, this Front Office knows they made a huge mistake taking Tua, they know he has a weak arm and is not an NFL QB.
    why else would they want Watson

  53. ocalarob says:

    Tua can’t get the ball downfield to a rec, they stack the box on him, this also stops our running game, the offense can’t score and it puts major pressure on the D.
    you wonder why we are getting killed in every facet of the game?
    The lack of arm strength by Tua makes this whole team coaches included look horrible

  54. ocalarob says:

    his college tape is pre hip surgery, i’m thinking that injury has taken something off the ball, people that are inside the walls in miami say that his arm strength is not nfl quality.

  55. Ken says:

    Gibberish once again

  56. ocalarob says:

    if you’re an opposing dc, you give tua the deep throws, you load the box, take awat the dump offs, blitz every down because tua can’t make them pay for blitzing, he can’t get the ball downfield.
    tuas weakness is the deep ball, so you make him beat you deep.
    that’s why he has these 200 yard passing games and no running help whatsoever, it’s too crowded at the los

    • mf13ss says:

      IMO, if we only had a functional O-Line, everything would be different. And I’m SO with ya that we needed a running game to equal the playing field. Apparently, our FO didn’t care about a functional running game.

        the OL don’t know if they’re run blocking or in pass pro, that’s why you get the illeigble man downfield all the time, this rpo they have for tua is killing the ol, they are not firing off the ball in a pro set,
        the reason for the rpo is so tua can get the ball off quickly.

    Piggy – I have no idea what Republicans want, I just think proper ID should be mandatory. It doesn’t have to be a special voter ID. Drivers license or passport would be fine. What i don’t get is why a signature that can be forged easily or just mistaken instead of producing valid ID.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Well the laws I was referring to were a lot more than ID at the polls

      Every state varies, but I’m pretty sure in my state and your state we verify our identity upon registration

      When I voted on Tuesday, they asked me the first 4 letters of my last name, then the first 3 of my first name, then they pulled up my info on the database that was synched to my registration., then I had to verify my address

      That’s very thorough – I don’t know what else people want

    Jonathan Taylor runs out of shotgun almost exclusively. The difference is the Colts OL knocks people off the ball.

        there are some very good posters here as well,
        i guess the mindset of some is if they disagree with what you’re saying their instinctive reaction is to disagree and add an insult with it.
        how dare i think like that!
        it runs deep, i really think they can’t help themselves as it’s been pointed out on multiple occasions and still no relief.

  63. olddolphan says:

    JUST WANTED to drop in and give my 2-Cents on Namath. I am probably the only person here who saw him play IN PERSON MANY TIMES. From 1965 thru the mid-’70’s Joe and his “entourage” came to the Orange Bowl yearly, except for 1 or 2 seasons when he was injured.
    His strong persona was known to everyone in the stadium. But, more than that, behind a decent to very good OL, HE WAS DEADLY!! His mid-range passes HAD ZIP ON THEM. And his deep passes, more often than not, were right on the money. Knowing this, LB’s and DB’s were more apt to drop back into coverage, rather than blitz Namath. If you blitzed and didn’t get him, you’d likely give up a big yardage play. THAT’s WHY Namath was a leader in yardage passing and touchdown passes. However, father time wasn’t good to Joe. His knees started to give out. His offensive line deteriorated over time, becoming almost a joke (sound familiar?) For most of his last few years, he was either ineffective or injured. His statistics nosedived. When he retired, his stats did not look all that impressive. But, kinda like Sandy Koufax, when he was good (and healthy) he was amazing. I would have voted him into the HOF if I had a vote in an instant.
    JOE NAMATH WON the BIGGEST GAME IN PRO FOOTBALL HISTORY —Super Bowl III. His team’s victory gave instant credibility to a league (the AFL) that critics had laughed at. Thus, when the Chiefs won the following Super Bowl over the heavily favored Vikings, everyone knew the TRUTH. The old AFL (now the AFC) was just as good as the NFC. And, on balance, the AFC had better quarterbacks – – – then, as now, a major key to victory.

    • ocalarob says:

      the only superbowl the jets won, namath had a cannon, he finished his career with the rams. back then they didn’t protect the qb, i’m sure he’s in pain today.

    • ocalarob says:

      i remember that game, hank stram, ed podalack lenny dawson, was it tarkenton or injun joe capp at qb for the vikes? the chiefs killed them.

    • ocalarob says:

      i remember the vikes vs the rams i think it was the nfc championship to meet the chiefs, gabreil got sacked for a safety and the rams lost. it was injun joe capp in that game.

  64. ocalarob says:

    Bookman, the problem is; those who bait a confrontation that ensues, stick out over other credible posts, the stupidity clouds the good posts.

    it’s nonsensical to argue over the internet, so why bait a confrontation?

  65. ocalarob says:

    I would assume the bait they are taking comes from my point of view on football matters, they simply can’t logically explain why they disagree so they stoop to the insults to somehow get a point across. and it deteriorates from there.

  66. ocalarob says:

    they confuse my hatred of Tua as a personal insult to themselves.

  67. ocalarob says:

    and i will throw out some names for the sake of trying to correct this crap, at the top of the chart we have Ken, Krishna & David.
    we all know that David gets a pass.
    but Ken & Krishna?…….really???

  68. ocalarob says:

    if i were running this site there would be consequences for this behavior, while i wouldn’t want to see anyone removed, i would definitely point out the issue to them and suspend them temporarily until they fully understand to stop the disruption.
    we would be much better off as it would bring back those who are disgusted by the nonsense

    • ocalarob says:

      i know you can’t police everyone just the habitual offenders

      You aren’t running the site

      We are not likely to suspend people for busting your balls after you bust theirs

      Personally I think it’s out of line to ask for that

      • ocalarob says:

        i’m not asking i’m just pointing it out.
        you have that backwards mr pig, they bust my balls then i bust there’s.
        the fact that you don’t understand the process is part of the problem.
        read above, i was talking football when both ken and krishna chimed in with insults, they triggered it and the site deteriorated from that point.

        you have to understand the process in order to correct it.

      • ocalarob says:

        maybe i should just come out of nowhere and bust your balls, just for the sake of it. so you can understand better.

  69. Rockphin says:

    So, who should the Dolphins pick as the new GM? I really want them to replace the entire scouting department. We’ve had 5-6 GM’s in our he past 20 years but have kept substantially the same scouts. Grier was here 20 years directly contributing to constant mediocrity even before he was appointed GM.

    • ocalarob says:

      read above, they ae responding to my football post, how do i avoid that confrontation.
      this is how it starts.
      sure i hit them back, it’s human nature,
      but it’s the same everytime, they take offense to my football post and personally insult me. i hit them back and it deteriorates.

      i really don’t care, i’ll hit them back.

      i just think it’s time to point it out to try to get relief from it. to make this site enjoyable for all,
      don’t you?

      it’s a fucked up mindset,
      if i want to confront you i’ll do it face to face.
      some of these people say things on the internet they wouldn’t dare say to your face due to the consequences.
      here they have no consequences.

  76. ocalarob says:

    to all those affected by the constant insults and needless bickering on this site i just want to say.

    i tried.

  77. ocalarob says:

    you have posters taking shots at someone needlessly, it’s clearly pointed out in print above, you have people complaining about the constant bickering, bookman & UK. just recently.
    and mr pig who apparently runs this place sides with the instigators instead of understanding the issue and confirming it.

  78. ocalarob says:

    i just want to talk football without the nonsense, if i disagree to the point where i would insult you i simply would not respond to your post.

  79. New Age says:

    Personally, I enjoy active discussion and that will include disagreements. Part of growing up is learning to handle those disagreements in all their forms so I consider it a good thing. Learning how to ignore people is also a skill rarely used. I have no personal dislike of anyone here but I love to argue so forgive me if my arguments ever sound harsh. Just throw back at me like Piggy or SB7 do at times. Or question me like Stanger does.

    The bad things in society come about because everyone agrees or is forced to. One of the reasons we are so divided in America today is because all the hypocrisy and lies from our leadership is usually revealed on both sides. We also want completely different things in our country. Personally, I will always disagree with progressive agendas because I think they harm America. It will never change unless someone can show it doesn’t happen. I will also disagree with anyone who thinks Grier and Flores aren’t major problems that needs solved by the end of the year.

    I’m glad this site allows actual thoughtfulness and discussion. It’s the only reason I really come here. I like everyone here but I wouldn’t come if I was always forced to agree with terrible opinions like Tua is what’s bringing us down. Thank you Ken, Piggy, Mike, Twice and whoever else makes this site what it is.

    • ocalarob says:

      nothing wrong with disagreeing when done respectfully

      • New Age says:

        I don’t even need the respect. I’ve never seen a single person on these forums or the political one I frequent most. I didn’t need my friends to always respect me when growing up and I don’t need the respect of the idealistic and stupid children of today.

        I will agree with you that Tua isn’t the QB we thought we’d get at pick 5 and probably never will be. I think he was broken by bad management and it makes me a little sad to say it. I disagree with it being his mechanics though. He needed someone like Lamar Jackson got who could tailor an offense for him while also knowing what a RB and TEs and used for. We’ve never had that kind of OC.

      • ocalarob says:

        there’s a difference between a little banter back & forth vs constant attacks, i’m surprised this needs pointing out

  80. Rockphin says:

    I think the Dolphins biggest problem is that Tua’s feet are too small. It’s a documented fact that you can’t succeed at QB if you wear a size 10 or smaller. His feet are just too small to give a solid base to throw from. Everyone knows that a pass starts from the base.

    SMALL FEET is the reason the Dolphins suck. It won’t change until our quarterback wears bigger shoes.

    • New Age says:

      Did Tua intentionally wear clown shoes to fool Grier? Was it all his fault aftercall? Never trust a guy wearing size 14s while only being 6′. Grier, how could you fall for that??!!

  81. New Age says:

    Imagine if we had the OL the Colts have or a RB like Taylor. Tua would be a different QB today. Complete failure of management and coaching to get all those picks and have such a terrible group of guys playing OL while not having a great RB. At least our defense is goo…oh wait a sec…..

    • Rockphin says:

      Nah. It’s his small feet.

    • CavalierKong says:

      What really annoys me about the Colts oline- they threw up a graphic last night that the Colts are (if I remember correctly) tied for 2nd most starting combinations used on their oline this year in the NFL.

      Watching their oline COMPLETELY dominate the game knowing that we can’t even get a serviceable oline was pretty frustrating.

      We really need to get our oline issues, whatever they may be, fixed.

    Spent another week away at a condo in Gulf Shores to do some surf fishing. Did ok, 1 flounder and a couple small reds. Water temp is still a little high 73-74 degrees. Once it drops a couple more degrees, it should pick up. Wish I had taken my kayak. Had a north wind and surf was little to nothing.

    We took a evening dolphin cruise. They were everywhere. One had caught a flounder, came up to the surface and tossed it in the air. Did it 3 times. I was like, “Son, stop playing with your food!”. Then two came up along side the boat and rolled on their side looking right at us. They looked so happy and content. Again, I was like, “Y’all must not keep up with the team”. LOL

    Anyway, it was a nice break from negative Dolphin news.

  91. Ken says:

    Look ORob I actually do like you but I admit I am annoyed at some of your antics of late. If you can’t recognize when you are insulting or baiting others as you do all the time that’s on you. In particular what annoyed me of late were the potshots you took on Stanger and the fest. He would really hard to pull off a great event. You falsely accused him of giving away your ticket and then just took every opportunity to bash the fest

    • ocalarob says:

      stanger unproked said some stupid things to me on a sunday loss, that’s what started all that, ask him.
      you get annoyed because of my take on tua and personally attack me admit it.

      • Ken says:

        I am annoyed that you cannot reasonably debate the issue of Tua. I have tried to engage many times in a reasonable debate with you but no matter what you have an agenda so I have given up trying so yeah I am annoyed about that too

      • ocalarob says:

        you see how the situation deteriorates? it all starts with the unprovoked insults.

        forget what happened in the past, read your response above to me without me mentioning your name.
        that’s how it starts,
        correct it and i’ll work on my end.

  92. ocalarob says:

    it’s like the player at the bottom of the pile who instigates a fight, the guy he instigates it with takes a shot at his face mask, and he gets hit with the penalty.

  93. ocalarob says:

    Ken, if i think i’m right and you’re wrong i’m certainly not going to agree with you.
    Tua has a very weak arm, he can’t stretch the field, that leaves a crowded box, due to that we acn’t run we can’t score and it puts our D in a bad situation.
    if you’ve been watching the games i’m not sure how you can disagree?

  94. bailbondmike says:

    I can’t remember a worse draft class than this upcoming 2022 class. There are only 2-4 players who are standouts at their position.

    Kayvon Thibodeaux, DE, Oregon
    Evan Neal, OT, Alabama
    Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU
    Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame

    I don’t see any QB worthy a top 10 pick. They are all projects IMO. Look at the top 20 stat leaders for QB. They are getting smaller every year. About 80% of the top 20 QB’s are 6’1 or smaller.

    Kenny Pickett, 6’3, Pitt, might be the first off the board
    Carson Strong 6’4, Nevada, is like a poor man’s Herbert (only due lack of big stage).

    The only others with any size are 6’2. One I might take before the first 2 is Brennan Armstrong, 6’2, UVA. He is currently the passing leader but dude has some wheel’s. Big threat to run. He could leapfrog the other 2 as QB1.

    Another who could sneak in the first round is Matt Corral, Ole Miss, if someone wants to take a chance on a 6′ 200 pound QB. He is a gamer.

    We don’t need to draft a QB unless it is a late round prospect to groom as a backup like Tanner Mordecai, SMU, 6’2, 215 who has good tools to work with.

    This was just an example to show how poor this upcoming draft may be.

    • bookman11 says:

      I’d doesn’t seem to matter how good these draft classes are, we seem to mess it up anyway 🙂

      • bookman11 says:

        Maybe we should do the George Costanza opposite thing and whomever we think we should take, we take the player that is lowest on the draft board instead.
