    VERY GOOD!

    I agree with M13, in the spirit of Stanger overcoming his health issues and getting well, along with the spirit of the GREAT John Madden who was all about football, let’s enjoy the run our team is on and put everything into perspective. 🙂

    Ken

    That’s is what bothers me about Watson too

    I won’t speculate too much about his legal issues – bc we just don’t know, I have a pretty good idea of what it appears like happened

    But as as a general rule I don’t want to judge him to harshly based on what I read

    But I know he demanded a trade and hurt the team he is supposed to be a leader to. I don’t like the way he handled his fight with the Texans, from demanding a trade to limiting their options – the whole thing is just absurd

    • The Flying Pig says:

      And those actions didn’t get a lot of attention bc of the other controversies surrounding him

    • Brian in NY says:

      I agree with this, but the Texans also traded away Hopkins, and their FO seems to leave a lot to be desired. Not defending Watson for his actions either

    Ok Ok OK
    Everyone else has had their turn, so I’m going to give it a try this week!

    Play Off scenarios for the Miami Dolphins

    Miami over Tennessee

    How’d I do?????? 😉

  5. Brian in NY says:

    Tim,

    One of the first things I noticed about Tua in the NFL was his accuracy, especially in that Arizona game. He’s got a very strong arm in the short to mid range throws- I don’t think we can fairly assess on the long ones due to the OL, but he certainly has to improve there. He’s definitely a smart QB, and I’d love for him to put it all together with us. He’s such a likeable person, and I bought my son a Tua jersey for his birthday that he has since outgrown and my daughter now wears it. But the last is a totally selfish reason.

  6. wyoming85 says:

    I would like to introduce MR Burrow to Mr Ogbah, Mr Phillips, Mr Baker, Mr Wilkins, and Mr Sieler Cav

  7. Mike E. says:

    Kong – great points earlier. I enjoyed it

  8. wyoming85 says:

    I hate this shit!
    Tuned in to watch Pickett VS Walker lll and they’ve both opted out!

  9. bailbondmike says:

    BRYAN, I am so glad you brought up Dotson. He is my #3 who, if we were picking at around #21 I still might take him. I feel, if he had a better QB people would be talking about him more than the 2 OSU receivers. I would love to get any of Jameson Williams, Garrett Wilson and Jahan Dotson. Those 3 are probably the fastest WR’s come next draft and Dotson does not get the love he deserves. He was very good last year and superb this year.

    All 3 above are low 4.3 40 guys and would love to have any of them!

    Y’all know my fav is Jameson Williams from the beginning of the college season due to his height/speed combo but, again, I would be happy with any of the 3.

  10. bailbondmike says:

    M13, that extra 2023 1st does give us some leverage to trade up this draft but I would prefer they don’t. I think I would take any of Williams, Wilson, Dotson or Linderbaum with our 1st and roll with it.

  11. bailbondmike says:

    Bryan/M13, what you think about PSU LB Brandon Smith if he is there when we pick in the second round?

  12. bailbondmike says:

    I have to say, it’s Dec 30th and I think I cooked the best dinner tonight of the entire year. Our friend came down from TN with the biggest and most perfect fillets I have ever seen. Huge! I seasoned them up, set my Masterbuilt gravity fed grill at 690 degrees. Did the diced red potatoes with lipton onion soup/dip mix in the oven. Sautéed bell pepper’s, onion and mushrooms to put on top of taters and steamed fresh broccoli with cheese. Made my own garlic butter to slab on the steaks as soon as I took them off the grill.

    I am stuffed and swear I want to go to the frig and eat some leftovers. lol

  13. Tim Knight says:

    Nobody answered my question asking who we have on offense that is a “must” keep heading into next year not counting Tua and the QB position? I’ll start with Waddle and maybe Gesicki. We’re talking “must” not solid or okay players. Who can’t be replaced somewhat easily with top cap space and a solid draft?

    If I’m GM of the Dolphins adding vet pro level OL to the mix along with more playmakers at WR and RB is at the top of the list. I really don’t care how it’s done. It’s about playmakers!!! Grier and Flores have to be a top competitor in 2022.

    Tua can make that happen if you allow him to do it. I’ve seen enough. He’s been adapting to playing with limited resources. Right now our defense is leading the way and everyone knows that. Offense and STs do their part but also frustrate during this run. It’s not about one guy.

    Target offense early and often in 2022 and let Tua do his thing. Good things will happen.

  14. Tim Knight says:

    I’d prefer a WR like Hines Ward, Deebo Samuel or Anquan Boldin opposite Waddle. You can’t focus on both. Add a physical inside RB to that and a lot can change overnight. When you start converting more 1st downs it opens up big plays.

    Of course a solid OL is key. Play at a pro level and allow playmakers to do their thing.

  15. Tim Knight says:

    M13, I brought up signing Allen Robinson a week or so ago and was shot down. LOL

    He does have durability issues like Parker but when they play they’re top shelf. I don’t know what to think anymore. Some guys are just so talented that when they play they make more of an impact then the run of the mill guys. Allen Robinson is not getting a monster contract anymore at 29 years old in the 2022 season, but he could get 2 years $25M from a team like us if it’s a good fit.

    Carroll sure did, then it cost them in the playoffs against Dallas when they continued to stick with it. Kinda the point of the article and what I tried to get across to you, that ingrained belief that running to ‘keep ahead of the chains’ is not necessarily the right way to do it anymore.
    _______________________________________________

    You’re taking this article like it’s the bible, how does this guy assess that running the ball cost them the game? the game is won and lost at the LOS, it comes down to individual match-ups.
    They could’ve passed the entire game and still got beat.
    How would anyone come to that conclusion. it’s pure speculation.

    ORob,

    I want to tell ya that I 100% understand where you’re coming from, regarding the RPO vs our O-Line. However… as the QB scans the field pre-snap, he understands what he’s looking at. If it’s going to be a run play, he most assuredly barks code before the snap to let his O-Linemen know to run-block, and conversely if it’s going to be a pass-play… it’s not so improv as you’d think.
    ___________________________________________________________

    I disagree, in the RPO the play develops based on what the designated defender does, the QB doesn’t read the defender until the play is in progress so how can he bark orders presnap?

    • Krishna says:

      Lol….

      • ocalarob says:

        how Davidesque of you

      • Krishna says:

        Lol….you should look in the mirror

      • ocalarob says:

        I know i shouldn’t respond to your stupidity but here goes. in the future i will refrain myself.
        I don’t need to look in a mirror, i write about football you write stupid shit, you’re a troll just like David, you guys are two peas in a pod.
        you should change your name to Davishna

      • ocalarob says:

        Or maybe try Krishvid ?? either one is fitting.

      • Krishna says:

        Orob, you’re a funny guy and you make me laugh!

        If that’s trolling, deal with it.

        You dismiss everyone else’s opinion, their research, and statistics and stand on your pedestal pontificating to the blog without facts, stats, or smarts and many times contradicting yourself in the process.

        It makes you laughable….so I laugh!

      • ocalarob says:

        why laugh? why not specify instead of a stupid trollish generic response? ? what you do is cloud issues with nonsense
        why even bother responding?
        it gives you pleasure to talk shit.
        you have a stalking presence here. I’m not the only one you stalk. it’s pretty kreepy.
        and you wanted me to drive an hour to meet you! LOL
        i don’t socialize with kreeps.
        what kind of person starts shit on the internet? you have mental issues

      • ocalarob says:

        how about if I start stalking you? how would you feel about that? what if i started making fun of you? what if i included your deceased wife? how would you feel about that? it seems you are trying to drag me down to your level.
        I don’t like you and never will, that’s why i steer clear of you. if you & I were at a fest we would not talk.
        so let me ask you in a nice way to please stop stalking me.
        Thanks in advance

  18. ocalarob says:

    the difference is, in a pro set where the OL knows it’s a running play they are firing off the ball attacking the DL. in the RPO they can’t do that.
    pro set is imposing your will vs RPO is very passive, not imposing.
    my interpretation of championship teams are that they impose their will, they are not passive

  19. Krishna says:

    Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year’s eve celebration!

    I will be trying to duplicate my (Mrs K’s) vegetarian beer chili for a gathering tonight. It went over so well for a Christmas party the host had so he asked me to it again.

    CK, I’m pretty sure you have great chili recipes, but I might be able to best you on this one….😉

    Anyway, probably out for now.

  20. bailbondmike says:

    Tim, I think you have to keep Tua, Waddle, Gesicki, Hunt, Eich. I keep Parker through the remainder of his contract because, if he can be healthy for say 12 games a season the next 2 seasons, he will be worth it. He only costs us just over 5 mill a year for a really good WR when healthy. I keep Duke and Lindsay. They are vets with good running and receiving ability and good vision our other backs are lacking. I also keep Hollins. He adds a lot of value to this team. I can go on about players I would keep for depth.

    We need to add another stud WR and RB. But, the biggest need is RT, LG, C in that order.

    • bailbondmike says:

      Sorry, Parker costs us a little more at almost 9mil per. His dead money is just over 5mil. I still think I keep him.

      Unless I can package him in a trade up to get Jameson Williams. lol

  21. Brian in NY says:

    BBM,

    Brandon Smith is very athletic, as most to the LBs have been in recent years. He played the SAM a lot but has flourished at the WILL spot. He’s okay in coverage but can rush the passer and is stout against the run. I wouldn’t complain about him being here, but he’d likely have to bounce Van Ginkel out. I like AVG a lot, and think he’s carved a nice spot for himself in the roster.

  22. Brian in NY says:

    Tim,

    The old must haves for the offense is Gesicki and Waddle, maybe Mack Hollins because of his penchant for the big play and his value in ST.

  23. herdfan says:

    Sigh….it’s the beginning of the last day of the year. We find ourselves still in playoff contention when earlier in the season we’d have thought anyone who suggested it had lost their mind! Yet we still can’t seem to have civil conversation and debate, even when being reminded, in fact flat out told to refrain from going at each other. Even the reminder of what is going on with Stanger currently hasn’t changed things much.

    I’d like to remind everyone who is engaging in this bad behavior that you are literally killing this blog by your actions. Randy said it yesterday, he doesn’t come around as often because of it and I’ve said the same to the other admins. I click on the page and see this constant arguing and name calling and personal attacks and close it. We try not to censor anyone because we believe everyone has reasonable intelligence and manners to know how to behave. Yet here we are.

    I just paid the bill for the next year. I have to tell you for the first time ever I had to think about whether I really was going to. This isn’t about money. My fellow admins chip in when I ask and there have been other offers from some of you. It’s not a lot in my mind and since I don’t write articles it’s my contribution. My point is to the issue of how some of you are behaving. Is it really that hard to behave like civilized adults? This is supposed to be FUN, something to ENJOY. I love a good debate. What happens here is if you can’t change the other person’s position to your own, let the name calling commence. That’s the sign of someone who has nothing valid left to say. It’s also childish and annoying to everyone else, not to mention extremely selfish to take over a space that is provided for everyone’s enjoyment because you can’t adhere to a little common courtesy and stop the petty arguments and name calling. If it continues this way you’ll have no one to talk to but yourself.

    I’m not addressing this to anyone in particular but if you think any of it might pertain to you, it probably does.

    Stay safe, and keep sending good vibes, thoughts, prayers or whatever it is you do Stanger‘s way. Sorry for the rant. It’s been building up for awhile.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! GO DOLPHINS!

    Tim, I like the idea of having an Allen Robinson but not at that cost. We have a good number of players to resign or sign. We have a lot of cap space but only have 37 under contract for next season. Ogbah will take a huge chunk. I’m thinking 15-20 mil. The best F/A RT on the market is Trent Brown. Pats signed him on a 1 year deal for 7.5. I think we could get him on a 3 year deal for 10-12 mil per. Then we have Gesicki who I wouldn’t pay over 10mil per for but he will probably get more. Not sure. We could be looking at almost half our cap space for those 3. If we could sign Robinson for the price of Fuller and keep the price down on the 3 above, I may do it. We still need to sign a stud LG and replenish our LB corps.

    Signing a high priced WR isn’t going to help us if we don’t fix the OL.
