2022 Miami Dolphins Schedule

So now the mystery is revealed, the 2022 NFL Schedule has finally been released. By the amount of “Prime Time” games the Dolphins have received, 3, it appears the NFL schedulers don’t believe the Dolphins are a top tier team. The Dolphins do get a Thursday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Cincy Week 4 (September 29th) for PT game #1. The Pittsburgh Steelers will visit the Dolphins for a Sunday Night matchup Week 7 for PT game #2 (October 23rd). The Dolphins final prime time appearance will be Christmas Day, home against the Packers. There’s another theory floating about that the Dolphins get a bit of a slap in the face, specifically Dolphins owner Steve Ross, for the whole Brian Flores’ lawsuit fiasco, and of course the tanking controversy that comes with it. I’d love to think it it’s the latter rather than the former, but we’ll likely never know.

I’m surprised and disappointed the Dolphins only get 3 prime time games, considering the Chicago Bears also get 3. I was shocked to find out this morning as I listened to WQAM as weekly guest Mike Florio from PFT agreed the Dolphins should have more prime time appearances. If Mike Florio says the Dolphins should get more respect, rest assured we should get more respect!Moving on from prime time games, we face FOUR Prime Time teams in a row. We will host the Patriots Week 1, then travel to Baltimore to face the Ravens. We go back home to face the Bills, who we just have not belonged on the same playing field with. Then we travel to Cincinnati to face the Super Bowl runner up Bengals. That’s a tough stretch right there.

In Week 13, we start our second tough stretch with 3 road games starting with the a West Coast trip to San Francisco to play Darlene’s 49ers. We stay on the West Coast in Cali to play to the Chargers in Los Angeles in Week 14. Then back to the East Coast to face our nemesis and division rival in the cold climes of Upstate NY to face the Bills. Then we face the Green Bay Packers for a toasty warm Christmas Day matchup. Then up north again to meet up with the Patriots in Foxboro on New Year’s Day. The season finale will be at home against the New York Jets.

I think those two tough stretches will define this team. Will HC Mike McDaniel be able to start strong facing four very formidable opponents right out of the gate? The middle of the season may provide a little relief with the Lions, Bears, Browns and Texans, but we will need to be in good enough shape at that juncture to be a playoff team, we can’t be 1-5 or 2-4, because the schedule gets pretty tough right after that facing the Niners, Bolts, Bills and Packers, and then a tough matchup against the new and improved Jets for the finale.

Let the Fest deliberations begin!

  1. bailbondmike says:

    There are 18 teams with 90(+) players on their roster. Jets have the most at 94. Not sure when teams have to cut down to 90. My though it had to be by the start of Rookie Mini Camp??? The Panthers just had to release 2 to get to 90 including OT Aaron Monteiro who was an UDFA signing of ours in 2019 out of Boston College.

  2. steveccnv says:

    UDFA McKinley was a three-year starter (2019-21) at Oregon and earned first-team All-American and first-team All-Pac 12 honors as a junior in 2021. He started all 14 games that seasons, recording 77 tackles (44 solo), six interceptions, 12 passes defensed and one forced fumble. In McKinley’s collegiate career, he recorded 11 interceptions in 38 games.

    This is the snowman’s partner, he had a great career at Oregon, he’s just a little small, otherwise probably drafted high

    • steveccnv says:

      Seems like our UDFA signings are better than usual

      Few of them may have a shot

      • Mike E. says:

        Think about it. With so few draft choices, they concentrated their time on UDFA’s, because they could. Guarantee next year the philosophy will shift back to the draft, and not as much on UDFA’s.

      • bailbondmike says:

        I agree. I like the potential of all 3 OL, the DB’s and RB White.

    • bailbondmike says:

      I agree, his size and not as fast. I think it’s his instinct’s. Seemed to be around the ball a lot last year like Holland was for them the year before. I said this before, someone needs to take a look at the Oregon DB coach. They have been putting out some good ones over the last couple years.

      • steveccnv says:

        At S your instincts are the most important quality, he surely has that, he breaks quick to the ball, allowing him to be in position to break up and pick off passes

        He’ll need to bite in camp though

  3. steveccnv says:

    Not a lot to talk about with the schedule, which is a good thing

    Scheduling should be somewhat favorable to teams that play 9 road games

  4. steveccnv says:

    As for PT games, I’d rather have less than more, especially Monday Night games, because the short week that follows

    Our worst game last year followed our Monday night game with NO

  5. steveccnv says:

    Certain games on a schedule, that look tough, don’t always play out that way

    We’ve had brutal looking schedules in May, that weren’t so bad once the game was played

    Pitt game, when Ajayi broke was looked at by everyone here, except Mike, as an I don’t see how we win this type of a game

    We got a covid break last yr against NO, an injury break in 2020 against SF, you just never know

  6. sb7mvp says:

    I think this year, more than any other, will be a war of attrition. The AFC is just going to end up beating one another up and we are just going to have to survive until the end of the season. I’m hoping the Bengals have one of those Super Bowl loss slump seasons where they don’t make the playoffs. As much as we worry about Tua’s health, Burrow hasn’t been free from injuries either. It’s very likely he misses some time this season as well.

    Our division will be tough, but we really need to steal one from Buffalo and sweep NE and NY to have a shot.
    AFC West is going to be tough all around.
    AFC South is probably the weakest division and will come down to Tenn vs. IND, both teams could end up making it if the other 3 divisions are successful at beating themselves silly.
    AFC North Steelers and Ravens aren’t that strong, but have managed to feast on a weak division year in and out. Both teams will focus on running the ball while playing solid defense. I haven’t seen where they made big enough moves to be the class of that division. Cleveland made a good team better and Cincy is the returning division champs. I think this division could be like the AFC South where two teams are able to sneak in.
    We have 4 very winnable games in our first five, with homefield advantage against Buffalo. That’s the game we must win IMO. The Ravens game might be tricky given they’ve seen our cover 0 up close and personal and have had all offseason to prepare for it.

    • CavalierKong says:

      I really agree with most of what you say here. Especially about the AFC being a war of attrition. literally 13 teams are projected to be potentially contending for playoff spots.

      My only difference would be I see the opener against NE as a must win, because I don’t see our new offense being up to speed enough to hang with Buffalo yet and I expect that to be a loss.

      I also think on the road against the Bengals on Thursday night is a really tough one because the travelling team is at such a disadvantage in those games.

      I would be ecstatic if we start off 2-2 because the middle of our schedule we have 6 or 7 very winnable games.

      • sb7mvp says:

        Technically all of those AFC opponents should be must wins. I just meant that’s the only game I see as a real challenge and we really need to beat the Bills when we have the homefield advantage.
        I see the other games where there is more margin for error while still being able to get a victory. All those other teams are tough, but I don’t fear them.
        This is of course, if our defense picks up where it left off last year. I think our offense only has to barely improve from what we had previously to make a difference. I don’t expect a slow start offensively because Tua’s protection will be better, his coaching will be better, and his weapons will be better. He’ll also be playing in an offense that plays to his strengths, with plays he’s more familiar with. I’m honestly more concerned with our defense relapsing that our offense sputtering to start the season.

      • steveccnv says:

        2-2 would be an ok start, if we’re also 2-0 in division

      • steveccnv says:

        Agree more with 7, in that our O barely has to improve, but our D can’t relapse

      • CavalierKong says:

        I don’t think we’ll be sputtering on offense, but there will be kinks to work out, missed opportunities, etc. It won’t be finely tuned. The Bills really became an unstoppable force on offense towards the end of last year, and I think they are going to come out this year with a chip on their shoulders. I just don’t think we’ll be able to keep up, but that’s JMO. We’ll see how it plays out.

        I also have concerns about how the D will play. Steve can add me to that number that isn’t sure how much of our defensive success was Boyer, and how much was Flores. The D was Flores bread and butter, we know he was heavily involved in it. I don’t assume we’ll be fine with Boyer, but obviously hope so. If our 2nd year guys improve the way we hope, we have some really good pieces in place and we could be really good on D, but it still remains to be seen.

      • CavalierKong says:

        That was a response to SB.

        Steve, I think 2-2 will be a good start as long as one of those wins is a division win. I won’t see it as a failure at all if we lose to Buffalo. I think they were the best team in the league last year, and will be again this year. I expect to lose in week 3 to them. I think we’ll be more competitive and have a better chance to beat them towards the end of the season than at the beginning.

    • bailbondmike says:

      I do have concerns on both sides of the ball but none more than the other. How soon can the offense gel with a tough start to the schedule. Can the defense keep us in those games and not let any of them get out of hand. Those are my concerns.

      Not worried so much about the D in regard to Boyer vs Flores. Comes down to game planning and execution. Making plays. We don’t have a glaring weakness on defense.

      Just stay healthy!

  7. steveccnv says:

    New head coach Mike McDaniel has enough questions surrounding him but even if he is marginally competent in his job, the Dolphins have the talent to overcome his first-year mistakes. That’s the good news, the bad news is that the Dolphins have enough questions to make you wonder if this hype is truly justified.

    Where I disagree with the hype and show me talk is, we’re just speculating meaning, if things go the right way and we put it together, then what we’re saying should happen, and different from a needle in a haystack thinking

    We’ve added talent to an inept O, pretty easy to get better from that low starting point, so not really much hype there

  8. Mike E. says:

    I think if we’re 1-5 or maybe even 2-4, we’re in big trouble. Say we win 4 of the next 5, we’re still either 5-6 or 6-5, and then face the Niners, Chargers and Bills away, with a home game against the Packers following. Of course anything can happen, we ran off 8 in a row, but how often does something like that happen? If we can’t beat the Pats, Ravens, Bengals, Jets and Vikings, how can beat those other teams on the road?

    • steveccnv says:

      On the other hand, is anyone going to be able to distance themselves from the pack in the AFC or are 12 teams going to be within a couple of games from each other

      It’s actually better for us to make the playoffs with a bad start, if all 3 non AFC East div leaders, after say week 6 are 5-1 or 6-0, because itvwould make those competing with us to have several loses top

      What we don’t want is everyone in the AFC starting out 2-2 in their div

      • Mike E. says:

        I think the Bills are absolutely capable of distancing themselves, I almost expect that to happen. The Steelers and Ravens may take step back, along with the Bengals, and the Browns could potentially have Jacoby Brissett or Josh Dobbs as their starter for the entire season if Watson is suspended. The AFC West might beat on each other a bit but the Bills might just have a 15 win season this year.

      • steveccnv says:

        The Bills are capable, but I don’t expect it

        In years where teams had dominant records it had a lot to do with mediocre opponents

        Bills were hot last yr after week 1, then cooled way off losing to Jags, really hard to sustain dominance over a long stretch, KC has proved that recently

    • steveccnv says:

      If we can’t beat the Pats, Ravens, Bengals, Jets and Vikings, how can beat those other teams on the road?

      On any given Sunday, that’s how😁

      Last year we couldn’t beat the Jags in the first half, did that have any effect on the last 9 games of the season?

  9. Wyoming85 says:

  10. Mike E. says:

    Steve – Read what you just wrote to me at 12:47PM. We played a bad Jets team TWICE, the Panthers, Giants, Ravens (save by Tua!), and a QB-less Saints team. Our last 6 games will not be easy, in fact, they should be very difficult. 4 of the last 6 games should be against playoff teams, possibly 5, plus 2 division rival games to finish who would love nothing more to spoil our playoff chances.

    • Mike E. says:

      I know you said any given Sunday but that works against us occasionally too. If we’re going to be legit contenders we better have a plus record going into game 7. It would be a lot to ask our rookie coach to pull us out of that spot.

  11. Wyoming85 says:

  12. steveccnv says:

    Why I think the O won’t be an issue to start the season, and why they at least should be somewhat better than the last 9 games

    Tua has played 2 years, we know what his floor is, it’s pretty much what we saw last year, the way I see it he can only improve, as for the new guys, RBs don’t really need much transition, they’ll be fine, Armstead is who we think he is, as is Hill, no worries on O being worse or only marginally better

    Hill does a lot of his damage on passes close to the LOS, not really much timing needed on those throws, the longer ones yes, but just adding the short stuff to this O and his YAC greatly improves us

    Don’t even need the MM effect for us to be improved on O

  13. steveccnv says:

    The Flores effect is a real thing, it caused slow starts, but also record setting finishes

    We won’t have that this year, hope we don’t need it to get out of a slow start mess

  14. stangerx says:

    The two games that make the most sense for the Fest are —

    Oct 16 — Vikes
    Nov 13 –Browns

    I know Sun nite against the Steelers seems real cool, but based on when they have been here before will be almost impossible, Tix will be like twice as much if can get at all.

    Pig or Mike E — can you get the voting thingy up? Dolphins have sped up the time frame for the seat draft this year. We’re on the clock next Wednesday.

    • Mike E. says:

      I have asked our resident tech guys/girls, I am not one of them. 😛

      • Mike E. says:

        Don’t underestimate folks desire for the Steelers game though. People may be willing to pay to see that one. Of course if we can’t get enough seats, that’s a different story.

      • stangerx says:

        If people feel strongly enough about the Steelers they have to have full info. I won’t know prices and availability till “on the clock.” Gonna be a hundred plus though.

  15. Rockphin says:

    My preference would be that ALL our games are 1pm Sunday games. Easiest to schedule my days around. I HATE Monday night games and Thursday night games. I wish Thursday games didn’t exist!

    • Mike E. says:

      I understand, the prime time thing is just about respect. NFL doles those out to the teams that they think will be good that year. Doesn’t mean we won’t be just because they don’t think we will, but in the back of my mind there’s always the NFL is fixed thing that talks to me.

  16. Rockphin says:

    Just to put your mind at ease Stanger, I will not be voting this year (again). IMO the opinions are for those who have to go through the BS of fiying down here. I can make the trip on any given weekend, it’s only 40 miles from the house.

    • stangerx says:

      I can do all the possibles as well. And never said don’t vote Rock. It’s your Constitutional right as a member of the Mob. 🙂

  17. Rockphin says:

    Also, I do hereby solemnly promise NOT to make a poor old couple from Green Bay stand the fuck up this Christmas! LOL

    Those folk are nicer than Canadians. LOL

  18. CavalierKong says:

    Some fun story lines for us this year. Flores in Miami with the Steelers, McDaniel in San Fran to face the Niners, Dolphins vs Browns with Watson likely at QB, a Xmas day game…

    • CavalierKong says:

      Tua vs Herbert

    • Mike E. says:

      Very possible Watson misses the whole season. Have to wait and see on that but if the NFL follows MLB with Trevor Bauer, Watson may not play until he clears up his plate with the other 19 plaintiffs.

      • CavalierKong says:

        It would be the smart thing to do, and I know the other owners probably want to stick it to the Browns for that Watson deal, so you could be right.

  19. Rockphin says:

  20. Rockphin says:

    ROFLMAO!!!!!

  21. Rockphin says:

    That’s Great news! MAYBE he can stop being a bust?

  22. Rockphin says:

    The Dolphins wire was their predictions out and have us going 10-7 and missing the playoffs again. They show two losses to Buff again this year. I agreen with most of the predictions, except for this one. I think we take it to them in Miami in September at 1pm. 11-6 and a wild card is my prediction.

    • steveccnv says:

      If our goal is to just make the playoffs, it’s better if every div had runaway winners, in other words the div winner wins both games against the other teams in their div that are WC contenders

      If our goal is to win our div, it’s better if all playoff contenders split in their div in general

  23. Tim Knight says:

    Until we prove to be a top team we’re not going to get the respect that others teams get. Right now the NFL pundits are consumed with the AFC West and North, then the Bucs, Packers and Rams in the NFC. If we make the playoffs this year we’ll get the respect next offseason.

    • steveccnv says:

      Fuck their respect, I’d rather fly under the radar

      • Tim Knight says:

        I was referring to Mike’s article about not being respected. I hope we fly under the radar this year too. But I don’t want to be an under the radar team next year. 🙂

  24. Tim Knight says:

    Good write, Mike! We just have to go out and win games. It’s not going to be easy, but I don’t think it’s going to be easy for other AFC teams either.

    • Mike E. says:

      I agree. We just have to play well, the wins will come.

      • sb7mvp says:

        I would add the word consistently. We have to play well consistently. We do that and there’s no way we shouldn’t get 12 wins.

      • Mike E. says:

        Correcto SB

      • steveccnv says:

        Tua is a win consistently QB, more so than someone with Marino’s hot/cold skillet

        We see the Herbert types that light it up one week and the next lose a game they should’ve won

        Don’t think we have to worry too much about consistency

  25. stangerx says:

    Went through the Dolphins website to see the single ticket prices for each possible Fest game. These are the lowest available and nose bleed end zone. But if we can get group tickets comes with a lower price. Normally better seats too, but not so sure of that this season (especially Steelers).

    Vikes (Oct 16) — $85
    Steelers (Oct 23) — $150
    Browns (Nov 13) — $95

    • manitobafinfan says:

      So I have either voted 10 times , or it’s not working … I press circle beside game , it does not “populate “ the circle .. I hit the greyed out submit button, the word submit shows up, press the game circle still don’t populate and submit goes away

  31. The Flying Pig says:

    I actually voted for the browns game… Abe a later fest this year?

  32. Mike E. says:

    How can you tell which game has the most votes?

    • manitobafinfan says:

      Pops up when you vote … can’t see if it shows any other way .. most surveys like that , once you vote once it just shows the vote counts and won’t allow you access to revote

      • Mike E. says:

        I see the votes, I don’t see what game the votes are for though

      • manitobafinfan says:

        You would be correct.. I voted Browns, Piggy said he voted Browns … so it is not giving the votes in “game choice order”

    • manitobafinfan says:

      Or just hit the view results button 🥴

  33. Mike E. says:

    Toba – never mind, looks like 3 for Vikes and 1 for Steelers, right?

  34. Mike E. says:

    Toba – never mind, looks like 3 for Vikes and 1 for Steelers and 1 for Browns

    • manitobafinfan says:

      But If Piggy and I both voted Browns they should have at least 2 ?! I dunno .. Browns game would work great for us , and it’s Dars Bday weekend if it’s Vikes we MAY Abe able to do a quick in and out … then we’d end up doing a week or so in CA in December…

      • Mike E. says:

        I have no idea where the votes are going. I just assumed it was in the same order the choices were in. It might not be, but if it’s not, then how can we possibly know which is which?

      • manitobafinfan says:

        Who posted the poll ?

  35. Tim Knight says:

    The link I posted about our OL coach discussing the OL is what a lot of us discussed during the offseason. They see upside in the young guys. But they also knew we had to add a talented vet presence in FA and we did with Armstead and Williams. The starting 5 will not look the same and neither will our offense. Right now other than Armstead at LT the rest is an open book.

    • manitobafinfan says:

      I read it , it was (as expected) quite positive

      • Tim Knight says:

        Yeah the team is not ready to give up on the young bucks. Too many young OL starting at the same time in 2020/21. We know most young OL are not ready to go right away.

      • manitobafinfan says:

        And yeah the coaching abilities of our OL staff is definitely in question.. hoping at least 2-3 if the pups can be coached up and we’re set

  36. The Flying Pig says:

  37. CavalierKong says:

    Mike, you can’t see what game the votes are for? Bummer, it looks like the Niners game has 12 votes, so all you guys and gals are coming out here for the fest…

      Let’s try this for a Friday night music theme .. versatility… pick a band and post two very different tunes by them …. I’ll go right away

      • CavalierKong says:

        I’m thinking we’re at about 90% probability too. Waiting for my NIners friend to get back at me. If it happens, we definitely need to connect with you and the Mrs for a drink, or at least to meet and say hi.

    I made the poll wider – too wide now but at least readable/useable. Unfortunately the poll generator only allows for the smaller or larger size and nothing in custom between. So that’s the best that can be done for now. Hopefully everyone can use and see the results better now.

    Tough choices for the Fest. 10/16 vs Vikings is a real good date for me schedule wise but the Tobas can’t make that and I would hate to vote for that if they can’t make it. 10/23 night game against the Steelers is interesting but I would be traveling early Monday morning so that doesn’t work that great. 11/13 vs Browns looks like a good game and I think I can make that date but then Mrs Mike E can’t go. Ugh what to vote for?

    It all depends on how one looks at it, IMO. And to be honest, I go back and forth on this in my mind, constantly. But for whatever it’s worth, we need to stop enriching the politicians… you’re absolutely correct about that!

    I just get concerned when thinking about opening Pandora’s Box, so to speak. Seems we continue to go FAR left of traditional human values, and America is a leader to the world in that regard… much like the Romans were before their untimely end.

    Our society is becoming undisciplined, reckless, and thus… unsustainable. And our media has become a great whore to our society… didn’t realize I could carry a baby in my man body, for example.

    WTF is going on these days?!! 😡

    • Tim Knight says:

      M13, a lot of people smoke weed and they’re fine. A lot of people drink whiskey and other legal alcohol and they’re not fine. That hypocrisy needs to end. The violence needs to end. Weed is not a violent drug. It’s also not a gateway. That’s propaganda.

      • mf13ss says:

        I didn’t disagree with ya regarding weed vs drank. My question is about where the line is drawn. Biden is sending out crack pipes… look into it.

        And Biden better shut down the fucking border before Title 42 expires/retires later this month. Weed is the least of our worries… and that’s my point, Bro.

    ANYTHING that goes unchecked becomes corrupted. I am a capitalist, but even I see the unchecked BS (crony capitalism, in this instance). It’s how liberals/democrats were able to take over BIG BIZ, for example.

    Checks and balances were intended by our Founding Fathers, but America is no longer enforcing the breakup of capital monopolization. That’s why we saw the likes of CNN/Time/Warner monopolizing the media (for example), and as a result, we came out with brain-dead idiots for a generation.

    WHY is America no longer adhering to breaking up these massive mergers, I ask?
    Josh Hawley, Senator, MO, is doing his best to restore the breaking up of monopolies.

    • Tim Knight says:

      You think liberals/democrats are the only problem? Discrimination against citizens is a problem. The government doesn’t own us, we own ourselves as individuals. The conservatives/republicans are just as guilty in the elitist game.

      I don’t want to hear any politician talk about the good of the people anymore. It’s all BS.

      We the people need to drain the swamp that are the representatives that have been there too long. Term limits is voting. Stop being stupid. LOL

      • mf13ss says:

        You sound like a Trump supporter (not that there’s anything wrong with that)… I’m with you on draining the swamp.

        Yes, the establishment Reps are every bit as guilty as the Dems… see $40B to Ukraine. Term limits, IMO, are the only answer left for WE THE PEOPLE.

        I can’t stand Sean Hannity, who is pro-WAR with Russia.

      • Tim Knight says:

        My points have nothing to do with Trump. He didn’t invent freedom. Drain the swamp is his thing? Okay, we used to call it blow up DC. Not in a violent way, just change up the federal government. The less power they have, the better. 🙂

        Know what else is fucked up? The legalization of sports gambling by the public now. Can’t tell me that Vegas isn’t going to make an absolute KILLING off of all that money. It ENSURES that the games are at least partially rigged.

      • Tim Knight says:

        As much as legalized gambling is a freedom movement that I believe in. I also think it’s going to become a societal problem. It’s another addiction. But I don’t have all the answers.

      • mf13ss says:

        Same… I don’t have all the answers either, man. All I know is that America is in a very serious and sharp decline right now. We’re very close to mimicking the decline of the Roman Empire, to be honest.

  60. Tim Knight says:

    M13, a really good friend of mine who has joined the far left in his mind has the same concerns you have with the status of the USA for completely different reasons. LOL

    I guess we’re all in turmoil. Seems like that, right?

    • mf13ss says:

      It’s all fun and games, but we’re at WAR with a nuclear adversary, according to Steny Hoyer.

      Yeah, the whole world might be in turmoil if this path continues. Instead of trying to broker peace, we (USA under Biden) are actively trying to get Putin to launch his nukes at anybody, somebody.

      Yup… it does seem like we’re all in turmoil under Biden’s policies. Your ‘good friend’ might just be an idiot.

      • Tim Knight says:

        A bunch of us have a problem with “my good friend”, the reason is because he has no problem insulting many of us if we disagree with anything he says. I love the guy but he’s extreme now. Extreme is the problem. It exists on the right side of the aisle too.

        The individual is being phased out. It’s become a tribal thing. The tribes control the narrative. Not the individuals.

        It’s the first one.
        ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.’

        You either believe in it or not. I do. Even if the forefathers were hypocrites they knew their behavior was wrong. It’s kind of amazing they tried to set up freedom knowing they were not engaging in it. I always found that intriguing.

    Thanks to Twice for getting the Fest poll up.

    The one thing am sure of is the Steelers game makes no sense. Gonna be one hot, expensive ticket.

    Looks like Vikes and Browns are tied right now with the real stickler being that both Mike E and Toba can make one but not the other.

    If you plan on coming vote and will be what it will be. And need to get choose a game fast. Seat draft is on Wednesday.

    “Against Tennessee, it was revealed after the season that the Dolphins had no offensive game plan going into the game…”

    I must have missed that info when it came out. Anyone know if it’s accurate? We didn’t have an offensive game plan going into Tennessee? What does that mean exactly? I can’t see there being no planning on offense and HC getting up there and telling the team “we’re just going to wing it and go with stuff we know.” How could we possibly go into such a big game with the playoffs on the line and not have an offensive game plan?

    Great to see ya, Jahndoh!

    I agree with your sentiment, and I don’t see anybody in the whole of America — much less the world — parroting Putin’s talking points but for one exception: Alexander Lukashenko.

    There’s no reason for us to get mired in yet another endless proxy war like Afghanistan… haven’t we learned our lesson? The industrial war machine is hungry again, post-Trump. We haven’t the $$$, our own border security that we’re providing for Ukraine, and we have enough problems on the homefront right now.

    I used to argue till I was blue in the face that GWB was correct on Iraq and Afghanistan… I was WRONG… VERY WRONG. Crazy to me how the hawks have become doves and the doves have become hawks.

    We’ve ‘essentially’ declared war on a nuclear superpower… first time in the history of mankind for such a brazen move. India vs Pakistan (neither are superpowers as of now) is scary enough, but this has all the makings of WW3 written all over it.

    WHY aren’t we trying to broker peace, instead of playing a game of ‘Russian roulette’?
