Game 13 – Giants @ Dolphins

This Dolphins team is on a good roll, and the youth portrayed above has a lot to do with that. Tua and Waddle on offense have been that dangerous connection, kind of what we hoped it could be, reuniting the two Alabama stars. Holland got the jump earlier than Phillips, but now both of these young players, rookies must be accounted for by opposing teams offenses. Holland is all over the field making plays while Phillips has spent a good deal of time in opposing team’s backfields. During the 4 game win streak, Phillips has 5 sacks, 7 QB hits, and 4 tackles for loss. Although Emmanuel Ogbah doesn’t have the sacks to show for it, Phillips benefits from the necessary attention Ogbah gets as his 6 sacks are just one half sack behind his bookend Phillips. Ogbah actually leads the team with 19 QB hits and 7 TFL. Now you have to pick your poison if you’re the opposing team’s OC. You can’t double both of them.

On the offensive side, this team has come alive. Tua is playing at a very high level, delivering the football much like Tom Brady, quickly, well placed in a manner that allows the receiver to get additional yardage. So many times I saw extremely accurate throws by Tua. In the last 3 games that Tua has played, (2nd half VS BAL, and then full games vs NYJ and CAR), Tua has completed 78% of his passes for 631 yards, 3 TD’s and 1 INT. All this good for a 108.91 QBR. The detractors will always be detractors. No matter. I watched 6’6 Cam Newton getting balls swatted time and time again against our defense, while 6’0 Tua delivered the ball quickly and on time, easily clearing the D-line. Tua’s awareness is obvious, he sees the field and his decision making is a high speed processor. By the way, there are still people who say Brady has a weak arm. Maybe he does, but the his other attributes easily make up for not having a cannon. Nothing wrong with having average NFL QB arm strength when you can make quick decisions and throw the ball accurately into windows. Cam Newton at one time could probably throw the ball 80 yards, but it was always Cam’s legs that were his best attribute.

Living in the Tri-State area my whole life, it’s hard not to have an affinity for the NY Giants. In the 80’s the NY Giants were one of the most exciting teams in the NFL, with Lawrence Taylor, Leonard Marshall, Harry Carson, Carl Banks, Gary Reasons, and on offense, Phil Simms, Ottis Anderson , Mark Bavaro. That team personified toughness. Oh yeah, the architect of that defense, one Bill Belichick. If you lived in the Tri-State, you hated the Jets, but since the Giants were in the other conference, the NFC, you could admire them without consequence. I always did, still do. This current team is struggling to find its identity. The Giants are where we were just 4 weeks ago. They have played a fair amount of the season without their superstar RB Saquon Barkley healthy. He’s played in 7 games, but hasn’t been anywhere near 100%, and the O-line play hasn’t helped his cause either. His results have been pedestrian at best, 73 carries for 260 yards, 21 catches for another 174. Daniel Jones is also having an off year but his health has been a factor, as well as the health of Saquon and his WR’s. The explosive Kenny Golladay hasn’t been because the Giants haven’t been able to assemble weapons around him. Rookie Kadarius Toney has been hampered by injuries and TE Evan Engram, once a a dangerous receiver has really regressed.

The Dolphins, 3-3 at Hard Rock Stadium must win this week to keep any faint playoff hopes alive. We’ve been in this position near the end of the season many times and come up small. They say momentum doesn’t mean a lot in the NFL, but we’re playing our best football right now, if we can continue doing what we’ve been doing we should be one step closer to a .500 record, which normally would be meh, but when you lose 7 in a row, it’s quite impressive. If we do win, we have the BYE week to recuperate. In some ways I’d love top just keep playing and skip the BYE week because the team is on a roll and I want to keep it that way. On the flip side, it will allow players to heal up, and those guys can help us down the stretch. Players like DeVante Parker, Michael Deiter, Greg Mancz and I suppose Will Fuller too, although not sure if his head and heart are in it for us. Let’s get the W this week and we’ll worry about everything else later!

GO DOLPHINS!!!

    First? Nice write up Mike. I hope we keep running the ball the way we have the last month. It helps with everything 🙂

    • Mike E. says:

      Thanks Boulder, we’ve been doing a lot of things well. Defense giving us scores, helping the TOP battle, which then allows us to run the run ball more. Synergy baby!!!

  2. boulderfinfan says:

    Interesting stat. If they beat the Giants.
    “The Dolphins are looking to become only the fourth team in NFL history to have started 1-7 before reeling off five straight wins to improve to 6-7.”

  3. sb7mvp says:

    Good write, Mike. I don’t have anything to add other than I grew up liking the Giants as well. They were great in early techmobowl. Although, I grew up in a different tri-state area and liked the Giants for different reasons. #1 being around so many Redskins fans, but also because of all the reasons you mentioned.

  4. CavalierKong says:

    Nice write, Mike. I’m laughing about the BYE this year. It seems like almost every year we have an early BYE and we always wish it was later.

    This year we have that perfect late BYE, and I really wish it had come in the first 7 weeks when we could have potentially used it to right the ship sooner or at least get Tua back a game earlier and maybe have another win notched. I think the lesson is to just accept the damn BYE week wherever, lol.

    Oh, and 🐬❤️🗽

    • CavalierKong says:

      In all honesty, I think the Watson stuff was a major contributing factor in messing stuff up, so even if we had that early BYE, it may not have mattered in the win column.

    • Mike E. says:

      Thanks Kong – I’m just glad we have all this to contemplate. At 1-7, it sure as hell didn’t seem like that would be the case.

    I was listening to NFL radio this morning and I don’t remember who it was and they said the exact same thing

    • Mike E. says:

      It definitely didn’t help anything, it wasn’t good for team morale at all. I’m sure they all recognize it’s a business, but when your team owner is making phone calls to another team’s QB, that hurts the psyche of the QB, and makes players wonder what the fuck is going on.

  10. Ken says:

    Waddle has serious chance to break Anquan Boldin’s rookie record of 101 receptions

    • Mike E. says:

      Sure does. I’m not overly impressed with volume though. Landry was good for plenty of volume too, but Waddle has that extra gear that makes him so much more dangerous. I feel like he hasn’t even looked especially fast yet, he’s probably thinking too much still, once it becomes second nature running these routes, he’s going to be explosive.

      • Ken says:

        I think we are starting to see the explosiveness from him and his YPC is starting to rise

      • steveccnv says:

        I like volume, it moves the chains, but yeah I get what you’re saying, would be really nice, if his ypc was 15

  11. Mike E. says:

    Steve – I think if we had another WR opposite him doing some damage, along with the requisite pass blocking, he’d have closer to 16YPC

    • steveccnv says:

      Waddle had 15.2 ypr against Carolina, with a 57 yard reception, so don’t see 15 ypr happening to regularly, because of the way we use him

      I’m fine with how we use him, and really more interested in ypg

  12. Ken says:

    You don’t see too many WRs with YPC in the 15 to 16 range any more. Short ball possession passing has become such a prominent part of the game that even the best deep threats in the game are still catching a lot of short passes

  13. Rockphin says:

    Nice article Mike E! Thank you once again for keeping this place rolling with new posts every week!

    The Giants were actually my first team, as my Dad was a Giants fan so he and my older brother (6 years older than me) were always talking Giants. I was like 8 YO before I realized Miami had a team. LOL

  14. Rockphin says:

    There has been conversation about the RPO offense and how some think it is part of the reason our offense has struggled this year. I went and looked it up and we have run an RPO play less than 18% of the time this year. It is NOT our base offence. We have run 775 plays this season. 138 of those plays were RPO plays. I think it is safe to say that the 138 plays are NOT the reason our offense has struggle all season.

  15. Rockphin says:

    I’m going to be watching the game on TV at the stadium Sunday. I have a plumbing fixture rep from Moen taking me and a couple of co-workers to the game and they have a box with free drinks, a private bar tender and full buffet. They even are putting us up in the JW Marriott Turnberry for Sat & Sun night so we can get trashed and not have to drive! They are taking us to some fancy steak house in Miami Beach tomorrow night and then we are going to do some bar hopping before going back to the hotel to sleep it off and get ready for Sunday.

    They are dropping some ching! It’s like $400 a night just for the rooms. Should be a good time.

  16. mf13ss says:

    Nice write per the usghe, Miguel de la E! Thank you for what you do here, Bro.

    There’s only one thing I’d add: Ogbah leads the NFL in batted passes at the LOS with 9… he’s a BEAST!

  17. Mike E. says:

    Rocko – Sounds like a great weekend, enjoy bud!

  18. Rockphin says:

    I’m glad Jones is out Sunday and Glennon is starting. Glennon has started 27 games and has a 6-21 record as a starter. He started five of the final six games in 2020 for the Jacksonville Jaguars, went 0-5 with seven touchdowns and five interceptions

    • Mike E. says:

      He’s not a dual threat QB like Jones. With Jones, you fear his rushing ability as much or more than his passing. Glennon is a lot more like Flacco, upright, non-mobile pocket passer.

  19. D says:

    Miami and SF were unbeatable in Techmo Bowl I don’t know why you choose any team but them . If you had the timing right they had a pass plays you couldn’t defend. Put up a semi competent defense and you won every game.

  20. Rockphin says:

    So, I watched S1E5 of WOT last night. (When they say it drops on Fridays, it must be GMT because for two weeks in a row I have watched it on Thursday night) and I have to say WTF Story is this? It’s not the story in the books. It is a completely diferent story with characters of the same name. Rand meets Loial at the queens blessing in Caemlyn NOT in Tar Valon! Where is Min who he meets early in the books? He meets Elayne in Caemlyn before they go to the white tower. The whole story is just fucked. At this point Legend of the Seeker is a better series. DAMN at this point shannara chronicles with crappy Austin Butler as Wil Ohmsford is better (and that was an epically bad casting!!)

    What is with this Aes Sedai burial ritual where the Warder melts down the Aes Sedai’s ring!?!?! NEVER WOULD HAVE HAPPENED! The Aes Sedai just would not allow it in any way!

    very very disappointing!

  23. mf13ss says:

    BBMike,

    Did you catch the new TMD video that dropped today?

  24. Mike E. says:

    LOL Rock – You sound like I do when you read something and they just slice it and dice it and change so much shit that it’s barely recognizable as what you read. For me, it was Stephen King’s Dark Tower series. I loved that, just absolutely loved it, and then the movie comes out, and despite a great job by Idris Elba, he couldn’t save the story they made out of it.

  25. ElephantRider says:

    Bo Jackson was all you needed in Tecmo. Always made Raiders off limits because of it. Average 99 yards a carry…..

  26. mf13ss says:

    Alright, alright… I know most of y’all can’t hang with some of the songs I posted above (LOL). I’ll try to get back to that which you’re likely to be familiar with.

  27. mf13ss says:

    This song is one of my very faves…

  28. mf13ss says:

    Let’s stick with magic, shall we?

  29. mf13ss says:

    Speaking of magic… another one of my all-time faves!

  30. mf13ss says:

    One of the most beautiful songs ever made, IMO…

  31. Mike E. says:

    One of my favorite if not my favorite Who songs. Bang them kettle drums!

  32. Mike E. says:

    two for one!

  33. CavalierKong says:

    Rock,

    The WoT thing is crazy. My wife and I have been watching and really trying to accept it by telling ourselves it’s just a different story. The story seems to be made up of a few scenes from the books and a lot of what I am labelling as ‘fill in the cracks’ scenes. For example, the taking of Logain was only mentioned in the book, and we have half an episode dedicated to it in the show.

    Then you have an episode like 5, overall I thought it was ok. I liked the Whitecloak, Perrin, Egwene scene which was an adaptation from the book. And I thought we had our first scene with Moraine and Liandrin in the White Tower where Moraine felt like Moraine.

    But why did we spend half that episode with Stepin dealing with Kerene’s death. They were less than minor characters only mentioned in New Spring, not major characters at all. I’d rather spend time with flippin characters from the damn books.

    I feel like the point of that was to develop the story of warders and the bond, but why not do that with major characters we know so you can develop them at the same time, instead of some tertiary characters?…annoyed.

    What is really killing me though is what they have done to Lan. It really bugs me because he’s my favorite character.

    So far, he’s just a foil for other characters to have big moments to the detriment of his own character. He is a f^cking force of nature as a fighter. He has an indominable force of will combined with skill that is nearly unmatched, yet in this show he has done nothing except basically get randomly killed just so Nynaeve can have her moment of touching the one power to save him, then he totally gets conned by Stepin so that guy can commit suicide, then he loses his shit over Stepin’s body. None of that is remotely F^CKING Lan!!

    I really wonder where this story is going to end up at the end of season one. We only have 3 episodes left. What is the arc going to be for season 1? There is no way they can reach the Eye of the World in that time, right? Where are we heading?

    Oh, and some of the editing… How about that scene where Rand and Matt are in what I assume to be Basil Gill’s inn in Tar Valon (instead of Caemlyn, wtf?) And we have a scene of Nynaeve getting directed to the garden in the white tower by Liandrin. Then the next scene is Loial at the inn suddenly saying “Hey Rand, look who I found at the tower, it’s the girl you were looking for. And Nynaeve walks into the inn behind him. WTF?! lol

  34. CavalierKong says:

    And since it’s Friday night music, this gal is pretty amazing.

  35. CavalierKong says:

    Gimme Shelter is my favorite Stones song too, but Sweet Virginia is probably next on that list for me.

  36. ocalarob says:

    Did i mention tua has a weak arm? Im not sure.

  37. mf13ss says:

    ORob, this one is for you! THANK YOU for reintroducing me to this song!!!

  38. ocalarob says:

    a song i’ve been palying recently

  39. Capt. Stubbs says:

    I just read something saying Jake Fromm is going to be the Giants second string QB. Did they just pick him up or have they had him? I remember him being picked by Buffalo. My crazy Georgia friend used to talk about how good he was. I think we might want to look at some of his traits because our D is going to get another QB BENCHED!!

    Damn right, man!

    And check out Ms. Karyn White… yes, she and I have had VERY POSITIVE convo in recent years and she knows me. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced this gem for her… wish I had…

  41. son of a son of a shula says:

    Another good Stones song

  42. son of a son of a shula says:

    Umm Yeah

  43. Tim Knight says:

    It was cool to see ORob take a break from Tua bashing to give us music lessons. 😉

  44. pheloniusphish says:

    Argh

  45. steveccnv says:

    Fromm blows, big time L7, weany arm

  46. ElephantRider says:

    LMAO

    Can’t make this stuff up

  47. bailbondmike says:

    BBMike,

    Did you catch the new TMD video that dropped today?
    ————————————-
    I did my man. I had to catch up on sleep yesterday before getting up at 4:30 this morning. Drove 9 hours to Louisville to deliver a dog (too long a story, lol) then turned around and drove 4.5 hours down to Gatlinburg. Got in at 11pm then got up early and drank moonshine and craft beer ALL day. Then got up and drove 8.5 hours back the next day. Getting too old for that anymore. LOL

    This one was kind of a follow up to the last one. Though still on the serious side, he had a little fun with it.

  48. bailbondmike says:

    I wanted to draft Fromm in the later rounds just to groom as a backup. That was and always will be the knock on him, weak arm.

    What made him so successful at UGA was his smarts and ability to immediately read a defense. His OC (who I wanted us to hire as OC) said most of the time, from the time they broke the huddle to the time he walked up to the line he already had the defense read.

    That doesn’t get you far enough when you can’t make all the throws.

  49. bailbondmike says:

    I don’t remember a draft class with such a weak QB class. They all have their short comings. It’s either their size or, if they have size, they don’t have a strong arm. If they have size and a strong arm, they have virtually no mobility (Carson Strong).

    Only one I see who is close to checking all the boxes is Desmond Ridder of Cincinnati. Though, I would probably take Kenny Pickett from Pitt before him but he will probably be QB1. Pickett checks almost all the boxes as well but, for his size, he doesn’t have a strong arm.

  50. manitobafinfan says:

    I know it’s Saturday, but ….

  51. Krishna says:

    Thanks, Mike E.

    What a nice stretch! All things good about our youth, D, O even….to becoming a Giants fan.

  52. Ken says:

    With Baylor leading OK state 21-6 gives life to Notre Dame

  53. Ken says:

    Hell of finish. Baylor holds on literally by inches

  54. bailbondmike says:

    Did I see that correctly? Georgia is at Alabama for the SEC Championship but it’s being played in Atlanta???

  55. Ken says:

    Chance to see Ridder and Pickett in big games today and tonight

  56. bookman11 says:

    I just hope we are spared another ND college playoff appearance.

  57. bailbondmike says:

    That was Jameson Williams on the ST tackle!

  58. bailbondmike says:

    Bowers is a badass freshman TE!

  59. CavalierKong says:

    Did I just see a Bama CB who’s first name is Kool-aid?

  60. CavalierKong says:

    I thought Georgia’s defense was supposed to be good…

  61. bailbondmike says:

    WHO??? JAMESON WILLIAMS!!!!!!!!!

  62. bailbondmike says:

    I doubt he will be there when we draft
    ————————-
    Need the 49er’s to lose a few more

  63. Ken says:

    Fuck Saban

  64. bailbondmike says:

    Alabama LB Will Anderson is the real deal. He is a true sophomore, I believe, so won’t be draft eligible until 2023.

  65. bailbondmike says:

    Let’s go Hawkeye’s!

  66. bailbondmike says:

    I didn’t realize Pickett was that mobile. I think he may be QB1 next draft.

  67. Ken says:

    Pickett can run

  68. Tim Knight says:

    Wow Alabama took down Georgia. That team just keeps winning even when they haven’t looked great all season.

  69. mf13ss says:

    Who is this Jameson Williams? Is he like, good or something? 😉

    OUTSTANDING! BBMike, you’ve been talking about him for some time, here. You may have found the next NFL WR superstar, my guy! Can’t wait to see how he does in the CFB playoff, and his Combine is likely to be killer.

    I sure hope the 9’ers lose out, man.

    She’s very pretty but not a big fan of the tune. Reminds me of Janet Jackson which isn’t my vibe.
    ————-
    LOL, it’s all good! Reason I LOL? Because Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced Karyn (as heard above) before they went on to almost exclusively produce Janet. You have a good EAR, my friend! 😉

    • Tim Knight says:

      Ha! There you have it. I was wondering if she was covering a Janet Jackson tune. LOL

      • mf13ss says:

        LOL, never mind my post below… I got the sense you thought I was dissing ya! Again, GOOD EAR!

      • mf13ss says:

        Only thing is, it’s more like Janet was covering a Karyn tune… being Karyn predated Janet.

      • Tim Knight says:

        No didn’t think you were dissing me. I didn’t know who came first either. But you can hear it in the production that it’s very similar.

    • mf13ss says:

      You do realize that wasn’t a diss, right? You were right, being it was the same production (producers) for both Karyn and Janet. You were absolutely correct in that Karyn reminded you of Janet! GOOD ear!

  71. mf13ss says:

    So DeVante is good to go tomorrow, as is Deiter. I really hope they both have stellar games tomorrow.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yeah that would be nice. It really sucked that Deiter won the starting job in camp and got hurt early on.

      • mf13ss says:

        I’m thinking Deiter should solidify the O-Line: that’s a clear PLUS. But I wonder if we target DeVante often, in order to get his stock up before the season ends?

        I’m all but sure that DeVante’s a goner after this season, via trade.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I don’t think we’d target Parker more just to get his stock up. It’s about winning the game. Every team knows what Parker can do and they also know he gets banged up a lot.

        As for Deiter, him going down so early really hurt our chance to have all these young guys build chemistry. We played what 4 centers this year.

      • mf13ss says:

        I agree about winning the game first before targeting DeVante. Perhaps if we get an early and/or big lead, we’ll see more targets going DeVante’s way.

  72. mf13ss says:

    Tim,

    I was a wee lad back in ’83 when this came out, but I remember my father bumping this song in his pretty major stereo downstairs (complete with dual 18″ subs) when it was past my bedtime… my mother used to get pissed!

    My father has ALWAYS been an analog snob (and to this very day, too!), if you will, and that’s where I get the classical music part of me. But *THIS* song always played loud and proud for him.

    After Prince fired Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis from “The Time” (the early 80s), they went on to produce for the SOS Band. This one is FIRE!!! Yeah, they’ve been in the game for a very long time, man… I feel this music production to the very depth of my soul.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I remember all this stuff as MTV was putting it in everyone’s living rooms. My friends and I were very selective with the 80’s era of music. Even the rock stuff. We weren’t much for the hair metal bands, a lot of new wave, punk, R&B pop, Rap and Hip Hop. But like in all genres of music there are always a few where we or I liked some of it. Sometimes a song is just a good song.

      I was a young teen during the “The Bee Gees” sucked era. That was related to the “Disco Sucks” era. I happened to like the Bee Gees and a lot of disco, even though I was more into rock and hard rock music. The Bee Gees did a fantastic album for ‘Saturday Night Fever’ and a couple of follow up disco type records. But that’s not what they did prior and it was just stupid and ignorant for people to be so vile towards them and disco.

      If you can’t get out of your musical zone sometimes and you’re not willing to be open-minded towards other types of music, you’re doing yourself a disservice.

      As for your Dad and his stereo system that was what everyone had. Some had more killer systems than others. I didn’t have the money to get the best system, but as a teen I spent a year saving up and researching to put my own personal system together. I think it added up to $540. JVC turntable (the needle was important too – you bought that separately), Nikko receiver/amp, Technics cassette deck and EMI speakers (only 10″ woofers). But they had a very nice warm sound and beat out the JBL’s I was targeting until I went into Tech Hi Fi and listened to them. That was a lot of fun putting it all together. Now most people listen to their music on their phone and tablets etc.

      • mf13ss says:

        It’s pretty crazy how quickly time changes these days. I mean, prior to being able to record music, it was all folksy and hymnals for hundreds (if not potentially thousands) of years, and people would sit in either an opera house or an open coliseum to take in the music.

        Nowadays, EVERYTHING has changed. From the very way we listen to the music, to the rapidly changing direction of the music.

        Interesting (if not scary) to think of what said ‘music’ will sound like in about 25 years, no?!!

      • Tim Knight says:

        Oh yeah and technology has a lot to do with it. But as much as music changes, the core is the same. Just different sounds and techniques to interpret it. However music always finds a way to go retro and fall back on its roots. A few friends of mine and I have been having this discussion recently about how deep music touches not just your ears but your entire soul. It can change your personality. It affects you physically.

        Even before humans, music existed in nature through other animals, marine life, weather etc. Sound is a huge thing for life on this planet. Humans really absorb it. A few of us came to the conclusion that music could be a godly thing. It brings people together more than anything we can think of.

        I remember telling my friends many years ago that I think we’re going to start hearing extremely impressive technical playing specifically on guitar and bass that will change things. We could hear it coming from the 70’s through the 80’s and then it really took off in the 90’s. Lots of fusion and metal players created techniques that was exactly what I was talking about. Sweep picking arpeggios which are basically chords played quickly note by note and tapping etc.

        At this point I can’t really see what could be new to make sounds that we don’t already have. But I’m sure something new will happen. As for the music, it will always live by its core. I love listening and seeing unique musicians doing something that’s different though.

    I shouldn’t have worn my ND hat yesterday. To Bookman’s pleasure, ND should be out of the championship playoffs.

    I am going to root for the underdog Cincinnati to win it.

    Tim,

    Sounds like I might have fit into your group as a youth. I also enjoyed the Bee Gees and a lot of the music of that era. The Beatles, Led Zep, Blondie, Queen, Supertramp, Floyd, and Pat Benatar were also some favorites. I didn’t like all their stuff but very talented musicians. Lots of good music back then. At the same time, I was very selective with most of my musical selection and disliked the hair bands, most rap, blues, death metal, There was lots of experimentation, and the voices were all real.

    I think some of the new artists have some great songs and I really enjoy experimentation. I really like Deadmau5. I also like some of the remade songs. I like the Sound of Silence remake even though I don’t like all of Disturbeds music. Same with Zombie and I think they did it better than the Cranberries even though I think they had some great music. I don’t feel quite as strongly about music as you but it does bring people together and soothe our daily tensions. It’s a necessity for people.

      My 80’s music was all over the place. Motley Crue, AC/DC, Van Halen, Scorpions, Journey, Aerosmith, Whitesnake, Foreigner, Guns & Roses, Ratt, Poison, Genesis, ZZ Top, SRV, Cheap Trick, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, Simple Minds, Talking Heads, U2, Pretenders, INXS, Bob Seger, Def Leopard, Peter Gabriel, RUN DMC, LL Cool J.

      Though, very little country back then. Now, I listen to mostly country.

      • New Age says:

        I listened to all of them as well but they’ve lost their luster as I’ve aged. Never got into
        country even though I like a few songs. I unfortunately listen to far less music than I once did.

    New Age and BBMike, right on! Music soothes the soul. Whatever sound does it for you is all that matters.

    Inactives, Brandon Jones +

    Miami also announced that running back Phillip Lindsay, tight end Adam Shaheen, cornerback Trill Williams, defensive tackle John Jenkins, and linebacker Darius Hodge will be inactive for the Week 13 matchup.

  83. ElephantRider says:

    There is the big problem with Lindsay….Fins love guys that can’t get on the field.

  84. steveccnv says:

    Well, if they didn’t pick him up he’d also not be playing today, so anytime he plays is a bonus

    Next year he may or may not be given a shot, but RB is different, than say a WR, like Parker, don’t think we need Lindsey every game
