What might the Dolphins O-line look like?

If Connor Williams will be a fixture at center, then the alignment I have up top may well be what we see to start the season. Or, perhaps they flip Liam Eichenberg and Austin Jackson, so Eichenberg plays RT with Jackson inside at LG. Or maybe Michael Deiter moves to one of the guard spots. My thought though is if we’re looking for the most athletic players in the outside zone blocking scheme, then these are the 5 players. Everything is fluid though, they haven’t even strapped on pads yet, but there’s no harm in speculating away, since at this point, it’s all we can do.

Connor Williams appears to like playing center though, and he’s far more athletic and capable of getting into second level blocks than his predecessor, Michael Deiter. One thing I can say is this is a BIG O-line. Athletic, but BIG. If it stays as currently constituted, with every linemen at 6’5 or taller, and at the moment, Eichenberg the lone member under 320 pounds. I loved watching Solomon Kindley here, he’s a mauler, but I don’t think he fits the scheme we’re running with now. I suppose he could drop some weight and gain some quickness, but he’s a small area operator for best results, and this offensive line will be all about movement, angles and getting a body on a body just long enough to get him out of the play. That doesn’t mean this O-line won’t be physical, aggressive, but it’s based on lots of motion from most of the line, not just one on one beating the person immediately in front of you, there’s a lot of teamwork.

The good thing from my perspective is no matter who plays where, our depth will be much better. I can’t say it enough times, no reason to give up on the young talented players we drafted in ’20 and ’21 like Austin Jackson and Liam Eichenberg. These guys will be at the very least average NFL starters and with better coaching, more than that. If the line plays out like I put up on top then you have Deiter and Kindley as depth on the interior, and Coleman, Jones and Little on the outside with the possibility of still adding someone after June 1st cuts. I know there will always be some folks who think we didn’t do enough on the O-line, (you know who YOU are), but if you’re one of them, you’re simply discounting the aforementioned young players in Jackson and Eichenberg. These guys have to be given the opportunity to be good NFL players because they should be. Is it possible we pick up a veteran center like J.C. Tretter? Of course. We were extremely “comfortable” with Deiter not too long ago at C, and now it’s Williams. Adding Tretter just adds more talent and another starter and makes the line even better, but not sure if it’s in the cards, or the cap.

    I don’t know of ANY Sac Kings fans over here on the East Coast, other than myself. Let me tell ya, Brother… I took that 2002 WCFs against the Lakers damn near as hard as you had. I flipped out so many times (I was FAR fierier back then) during that series. I quite literally was spitting on my TV in outright defiance as to what was going on (like that made a difference, LOL).

    • mf13ss says:

      I seriously and officially was FINISHED with the NBA after that series.

    • CavalierKong says:


      I’m pretty sure you’ve told me before, but I can’t remember- what’s the story behind you being a Kings fan? Kings fans outside of the Sacto area are pretty rare…understandably.

      • mf13ss says:

        Let’s just say I’ve plenty of West Coast connections (music biz), one of my former artists (R&B singer) is the cousin of Mike Bibby, and I’ve always been a fan of Chris Webber.

    NOT trying to be political, rather trying to bring us closer together…

    I think we can ALL agree that ANY SCOTUS being targeted for assassination is a threat to America and our way of life. The shit is no longer funny (never was), what’s going on here in America today.

    It’s getting scary, y’all.

    Brennan Scarlett seems to have a place on this team as an Edge, DE and can play some off-ball LB inside the box. He’ll play STs as well. Sometimes a 7 year vet like him gives a team versatility and depth. He’s not a household name but plays a role on game day.

    Hey, have you watched any of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series? WOAH!!! It’s some of the best Star Wars that’s come out in some time!

    • CavalierKong says:

      Nah, I’m really not into Disney’s Star Wars. I did watch The Mandalorian and enjoyed it though. I’ll probably check out Obi-Wan because I’m hearing from a lot of people it’s worth watching.

    M13, you don’t need to say not trying to being political when you want to be. Everyone else does it too. We’re humans, it’s what we do. LOL

    • mf13ss says:

      Nah, Bro, I was being serious. I think ALL of us here can draw a line in the sand and say ENOUGH is ENOUGH when it comes to SCOTUS judges being targeted for assassination.

      That seriously shouldn’t be a political matter whatsoever. It’s wrong, and I believe both sides here on this blog can agree on that.

      • Tim Knight says:

        That’s not what I meant. I was saying you don’t have to say “not trying to being political”, when it is at the end of the day.

        Once we all decide murder is not good, we’ll all be better off. It’s becoming ridiculous how we view murder or potential murder. How about violating the rights of citizens is not allowed. I don’t care what category it falls under. You can’t do it.

    As in who is for it? You take someone’s life because you’re angry about something.
    Ah, okay, I hear what ya mean a little more clearly.

    But why would somebody take another’s life just because one is angry? I mean, I was about fit to be tied after the 2002 WCFs (Sac Kings vs LA Lakers, for example), but NEVER did I feel I needed to end somebody’s life over it.

    WTF is wrong with today’s society? We are SUPPOSED to be a so-called “civil society” (best in the world), but all I’m seeing is a reversion to the Dark Ages of medieval Europe.

    Wyoming, Thanks for the post on the cancer treatment but why this?

    “Patients in this trial were administered doses of Jemperli every three weeks for a period of six months. Each dose costs $11,000, according to the Times.”

    That’s $88,000 or a little more just for a medication/treatment. Too bad for the less fortunate.

    Like him or not this is a real touching song.

  12. Rockphin says:

    That is some really encouraging news about Jemperli. My father died of colorectal cancer three years ago. I hope the treatment pans out. So far (in a VERY small study) 100% remission with NO apparent side effects.

    Hope it turns out to not be “to good to be true”

  14. Krishna says:

    I heard about this study/treatment in a bar on Tuesday. It was in the NEJM, a premier peer-reviewed publisher. (?)

    The cost so far is WAY below what today’s cost for radiation, chemo, surgery, etc. WAY below and 100% remission.

    While the results are dubious at this point, medical technology in this arena seems to be promising for the future. (Cancer arena)

    IMO we’ll pick up a proven OC when the late cuts happen. Usally quality starters get cut due to salary cap issues. Also Tretter is still on the cards. CW is not a good centre.

  18. Rockphin says:


    PFF truly baffles me sometimes.

    “The Dolphins signal-caller ranked third in completion percentage (48.3%) and second in yards per attempt (18.1) a season ago”

    But they rank him at #17 because they say many of his throws were “turn over worthy” although they were not turned over?

    • Krishna says:

      Turnover worthy play rate? What does that mean? Lol… I tried looking it up and there’s not definition from the website….let’s just make shit up….lmao.

      • steveccnv says:

        Means the pass could’ve been picked off, like a throw that hit a defenders hand, that he didn’t catch

    • steveccnv says:

      (Said in a deep voice😝) In the modern NFL, teams need to have a quarterback who can hit explosive plays whenever the opportunity presents itself. It is no coincidence that the two Super Bowl 56 quarterbacks — Joe Burrow and Matthew Stafford — ranked top-four in the league in yards from passes thrown 20 or more yards downfield in 2021.

      They do this shit every year, whatever the formula was for the previous SB champ or SB participants that’s the formula you need to get to the SB, if it was a good D team it’s D wins championships, then they cherry pick some stat most teams that made the playoffs had in common

    Most cancer treatments are covered by insurance and or administered through trials with no cost to the patient

    • Krishna says:


    • Ken says:

      I paid about $10k out of about a total of $200k billed for my surgery, hospitalization and radiation

      • Krishna says:

        Yep….you should have seen Mrs. K’s bills….she had a $5K max deductible, but that doesn’t include the visits, travel, drugs, etc. trying to save her life….

        ….5 years vs 6 months treatment….that’s a no brainer.

      • Krishna says:

        I should clarify the the max deductible of $5K started over every year.

  20. Rockphin says:

    I think this really is the #1 priority for this team. CHANGE THIS!!

    Josh Allen has been nothing short of dominant against the Fins with a 7-1 record. He only lost his first-ever meeting versus Miami. He has thrown for 21 touchdowns compared to five interceptions. His 106.8 quarterback rating is the best against any other team in the division. His rating against the Patriots is 82.7, and with the Jets, it’s 85.6.

    • Ken says:

      Trying to contain Allen will not be easy. Bills only missed out on the SB because Chiefs out scored them

      • steveccnv says:

        You aren’t going to contain him, your O has to match them in normal circumstances, and you surely aren’t going to beat them with our Flores pop gun O

    • steveccnv says:

      Flores was clueless against Buffalo, the only real similarity is Tua, most of the O has changed and the D wasn’t the problem

      Buffalo took advantage of our weak OL by having most of their defenders close to the LOS often, just like the cheats use to kill us with

    Thank god. The list price for my stretch in the hospital was $970k. You don’t have to be rich, but you do have to be insured.

    • Krishna says:

      I’m surprised it was only that stangerx….Mrs. K’s ONE WEEK stay before she died was $480K…..I paid the $750 deductible for the hospital and ran!!!!

      • stangerx says:

        That $480k is mind blowing. But you paid for it (or a lot of other businesses and insurance payers did). It’s like a creepy lotto. You get that sick and you end up “the winner.”

      • Ken says:

        I remember back in 2010 when I had my bariatric surgery it was denied by my health insurance as “elective” even though it was going to essentially make me lose weight and be significantly healthier. I paid for it out of my own pocket. About $15k. I kept saying to myself that one day I want to get really sick so I can stick it to the insurance company. I got my wish. 🥺

      • stangerx says:

        And like Rock said — the insurance companies couldn’t care less. They have their metrics and the blips are just part of the big plan.

  25. Rockphin says:

    There is a major problem with our healthcare system. When I was electrocuted in 1991 the total hospital stay and emergency services cost $640+K. I requested an itemization (actually had to demand with legal letters to get them) and I was enraged at the BS bill stacking that went on.

    I was intubated and in a coma for the first 6 days, but somehow they were able to give me 3ea $8.00 Tylenols per day….The bill was packed with stuff that was NEVER administered. I was on a morphine drip why would I need Tylenol? There charges for enemas, bandages, it was stupid the stuff that was tacked in.

    I spent days forensically going through the bill highlighting all the stuff that was impossible for them to have given me and I presented it to my lawyer to give to the insurance company.

    The insurance company didn’t care. NOBODY cared. I was so upset by the whole deal.

    • stangerx says:

      For sure is messed up my intubated buddy. I’ve been caught in the middle btwn the hospital and insurance company since got out. Hospital says “your insurance company denied your claim…. here’s a bill for $970k due on receipt.” Insurance company says “we refused for not proving the right info….. what they sent us has 43 line item charges with no explanation of that they are charging for.”

      Big picture what gets me is the insurance company only pays a modest percentage of the prices hospitals charge. So it makes no sense for anyone to go without insurance and pay full price. Other than that would make sense for some in their 20s and 30s to pay their own way on health and grab some high-deductible catastrophic injury insurance that kicks in at some very high level of medical expenses.

    • Ken says:

      Many times when you are sedated or comatose meds will be administered IV or through a nasal gastric tube. That said not sure why you would be given Tylenol while on a morphine drip. Although after my surgery I did have both narcotic and Tylenol administered for a short time. Couple of days or so

    Masala reports:
    While the Miami Dolphins are wrapping up their OTAs this week, the front office is making moves to try and improve their roster.

    The team announced Wednesday night that they’ve signed linebacker Porter Gustin. Gustin spent the last three seasons with the Cleveland Browns, bouncing from the practice squad to the active roster. The former USC Trojan has appeared in 26 games, recording 52 tackles, two fumble recoveries and a sack.

    Miami also announced that they’ve waived defensive back Javaris Davis and released defensive end Daeshon Hall.

    Davis spent the last two seasons on the Dolphins’ practice squad. He’s played in just one game, making two tackles and deflecting one pass. Hall was signed back in February and has, obviously, yet to appear in a game for Miami.

    Davis and Hall would’ve likely been fighting for roster/practice squad spots, so it appears that general manager Chris Grier and head coach Mike McDaniel just want to make those battles more competitive.

    The AFC is loaded, but something has to give

    I think the first thing to give will be the AFC North, Pitt has no QB, Balt I expect Lamar to somewhat fade, Clev I expect Watson to be out all year

    Lucky for us we play them, but the Cin game may be a no win game being Thurs road

    Teams will have their ups and downs, if good enough we can make several look like they’re in a down stretch

    • Ken says:

      Watson is not going anywhere. I expect the league to credit in essence time served last year. No criminal charges means the league will leave the civil cases to the court system and credit the 1 year “voluntary suspension “

      • Tim Knight says:

        That’s BS because he refused to play for the Texans, it wasn’t a suspension, it was his choice.

      • steveccnv says:

        Even Watson doesn’t believe that, said so by his manipulated contract

      • Ken says:

        That is my guess. I don’t think the Browns would have given up what they did without some assurances from the league. Just my thoughts on it I don’t have a crystal ball but just what I think is going to happen. I mean the situation has been pending over 1 year and the league has done nothing

      • Tim Knight says:

        It just goes to show you that the NFL doesn’t really take sexual misconduct seriously and their game is more important than their phony civil concerns.

      • CavalierKong says:

        The owners/ league are supposedly furious at the contract the Browns gave him, so I don’t expect the Browns will be getting any favors from the league.

        Oh, and I might as well get this out of the way, lol, looks like you’re probably going to be proven right and me wrong on Garoppolo and he may still be with the Niners when training camp opens up. I think this offseason played out in wacky fashion because of the QB carousel, but tht doesn’t change the facts of the matter.

      • stangerx says:

        I’m not sure what will happen with Watson, don’t know when it will. don’t know how his civil cases end up….. but dude is serving at least 4 games sometime.

      • Ken says:

        I mean with the criminal charges off the table there is nothing stopping the league from taking action. I don’t see the league waiting for the civil actions to play out. That could take a couple of years or more and there will very likely be NDAs

  32. CavalierKong says:

    LOL, it never ends. Google Miami Dolphins news and all the top stories are about how Brady addressed the Dolphins rumors.

    Fake outrage for PR purposes imo

    • CavalierKong says:

      Not sure how that works, that just gives them even less credibility if the league doesn’t suspend him. Plus, I tend to think it’s real anger since the Browns set a horrible precedent with that contract.

      Wilson to Broncos – “Watson got 200+ mil guaranteed and he’s got 24 civil cases pending. You’re guaranteeing all my money or I walk”

      Still, i guess anything is possible with that group of owners…

      • Ken says:

        The problem is that legally they have very little information to rely upon suspending him without running the risk of incurring liability from a defamation suit. If there was a criminal indictment then yes no brained for the league. But with unsubstantiated and factually disputed civil claims that are likely not to be played out in public the league would be on dangerous ground to suspend. This is not Ray Rice on video for the whole world to see

      • CavalierKong says:

        The league doesn’t need a criminal case and I’m pretty sure they can do what they want in this case under the guise of “conduct detrimental”. They have conducted their own investigation and it’s been proven time and again that Goodell has very broad authority in anything that falls under that clause. A player with 24 civil cases should easily fall into that category.

      • CavalierKong says:

        IMO the only question is does the league give him a slap on the wrist for PR purposes (6 games) or do they say, you aren’t representing our league until this is cleared up (a season or more).

      • CavalierKong says:

        But, on the flip side, they didn’t suspend him last year, so maybe you’re right…

      • Ken says:

        The league may have broad authority but that doesn’t prevent potential liability for defamation

      • CavalierKong says:

        I just can’t get there. The league wouldn’t be claiming he did anything or slandering him. They are saying the circumstances with these women Watson is involved with is detrimental to the league, and there is no question he was involved in some way with these ladies. Sure, he could sue, but the NFL should eat him alive.

        But you’re the lawyer and definitely know more about this stuff than I do, so I will defer and wait for the league to prove me right, lol.

    The expectation is Liam Eichenberg will start at left guard while Austin Jackson is expected to play right tackle, per the Miami Herald

      That makes my depiction above correcto, and you unhappy

    • Tim Knight says:

      Heard that too but that will all get settled once the pads go on. As far as those two players we already knew they were in the mix because they’re young and the new coaches feel they can get them to play well. Maybe just maybe coaching was a problem. A lot of our new coaches on offense have OL coaching experience.

      That was from the link I posted yesterday. Tindall could be a real steal for us.

      • stangerx says:

        Can’t get to MH links unless I pay for it… which refuse to do.

      • Tim Knight says:

        You can get the links 2-3 times before the paywall comes up if you clear your cookies. But you have to sign into everything again that you might have open. Sometimes I’m not into doing that.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      “cover like a safety”
      that’s a high compliment for a guy who can bring the lumber like that.

      • stangerx says:

        Don’t buy your Tindall jersey quite yet. Lot of evaluators had read said his coverage abilities were questionable….. even if cause wasn’t asked to do that much.

      • Tim Knight says:

        He tested like a WR and DB at the combine.

  36. naplesfan2010 says:

    I like Eich inside. He’s more of a mauler and less mobile.
    Jackson is light on his feet and can run, so he’s better outside.
    If this “expectation” is correct, then the coaches have decided,
    at least at this time,
    that those 5 are the best group to put out there for this offense.

    • stangerx says:

      But then Eich played T and Jackson G for a good while last season. Something was up…. and think a something we didn’t really read about.

      • naplesfan2010 says:

        yeah that is what I am saying.
        I think they looked at tape and learned what those 2 guys can do,
        and McDaniel knows his offense, he says he has his prototypes,
        and they decided “we better flip those guys” from OG to OT and vice versa.
        Because they also must’ve seen something on tape they really did NOT like about Dieter at Center, if indeed the decision has been made to move the new guy to a whole new position.

    Speaking of buying jerseys, I still haven’t pulled the trigger on which Thomas jersey I’m buying to wear to the fest game (since it’s a game honoring him). I’m torn between the orange jersey that will stand out for Dolphins related events, but I likely won’t wear very much outside of that…or the standard aqua which I would wear all the time…

    • CavalierKong says:

      If enough people on the blog give their opinion, I’ll go with the majority

      • naplesfan2010 says:

        Wear whichever one will strike fear into the hearts of the Vikings players.

    • stangerx says:

      You never wear anything than your petro-chemical jersey to a Dolphins game. T-shirt under will absorb sweat then later dry and smell like BO,

      Which one and which color you choose is up to you. For most Fans first is aqua, second white and third orange….. but completely up to you. Not like the cool kids wear a certain color.

  38. Tim Knight says:

    The new coaches might have seen good stuff from the young OL as in they can do the job, but as a group and the scheme we played last year might have been the problem. They might have even thought what they were asked to do was ridiculous. If McDaniel and his staff thought the ability wasn’t there I think they would have approached FA differently.

  39. Tim Knight says:

    “I wasn’t really able to push the ball down the field last year because we didn’t have plays specifically to push the ball down the field. A lot of plays that were called last year were meant for one person. Either this person is open, or the play might be dead. It’s a little different now.”


    This confirms that there was no vision on offense last year. I remember reading articles that said we ran a simple college offense and some even called it a Mickey Mouse offense. That’s going to change this year because the offense we’re running this year is time-tested.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      and also multi faceted … They keep saying they can run different plays from the same formation and the same play from different formations.
      That’s gotta drive the DC and Mike crazy trying to call defenses.

  40. naplesfan2010 says:

    I think the roster moves might reflect Verone McKinley might’ve impressed.
    Plus Melvin Ingram makes any other back up DE superfluous.
    The new guy might give us another ST tackler.

  41. Krishna says:

    It always looked to me that the failures on O were due to poor coaching and scheme.

    With that said, how can one know what “talent” we have or what we can do?

    Let’s see….I’m all-in to that…lol

    • Ken says:

      Eichenberg is not that talented. He looked unathletic last year. Jackson is athletic but looks like he is unmotivated or just flat out lost

      • Tim Knight says:

        I think they were all lost because of how our offense allowed opponents to attack us. It was 90% RPO, either hand it off out of shotgun or throw shallow routes. Sure we threw in some wrinkles here and there but it was mostly RPO. We rarely made a team pay for overloading with the blitz.

    • Krishna says:

      It was painful to watch the Keystone cops (redit to 🐷 for term). Spot on.

  42. stangerx says:

    This boggles my mind. Do these just say what they think people on their team should? I could at least get saying that more attention should be paid to the riots the summer before or that concern over the Jan 6 protests is overblown.
    “More than half of U.S. Republicans believe the false claim that left-wing protesters led the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riot to try to make then-President Donald Trump look bad, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll…..55% of the Republicans polled said they believed the riot was led by violent left-wing protesters.”

    • Tim Knight says:

      Nobody ever does what they did when it’s a negative. I’m sure there were some left-wingers there to challenge the Trumpsters but a lot of the videos of people in and around the Capitol building were Trumpsters saying anti-Democrat stuff. So no doubt there is a high level of BS coming from Republicans on this.

      • stangerx says:

        I’m just concerned about the brain washing part of this. There is no doubt what happened. It was on TV.

      • Krishna says:

        It’s Animal Farm/1984 brainwashing, imo….it’s fucked….lmao.

        Lying is lying.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Stanger, it’s no different than the riots going on lead by BLM during the summer of 2020. Leftists blamed white supremacists for ruining their peaceful protests. A friend of mine who’s gone all in left-wing after being a moderate his entire life said the same thing. When I asked him what about the black people jumping on cop cars, setting them on fire, breaking windows, looting and setting stores on fire, were they white supremacists too? His answer was I don’t want to take to you about this.

        There is a ton of video on that too because cameras are everywhere. My niece who is left-wing once told me there are no riots going on. I said okay, I guess we see things differently. Once you’re that entrenched in your political party reality doesn’t exist anymore.

      • stangerx says:

        “Once you’re that entrenched in your political party reality doesn’t exist anymore.” — well said. Just makes me sad for the country. But do think more on the right than the left. In that poll 55% of Republicans (tens of millions of people) said left-wing radicals were behind Jan 6. Don’t think that same percentage would say white supremacists caused the violence, looting and riots at the George Floyd protests turned bad.

      • Tim Knight says:

        “Don’t think that same percentage would say white supremacists caused the violence, looting and riots at the George Floyd protests turned bad.”

        You’re right because some leftists encouraged it and validated it by saying things like people are angry. So it’s okay to do things like that to innocent people, any police and businesses if you’re angry.

        That’s where we are today. We are not the “United” States of America right now. We’ve allowed the radicals on both sides to control the narrative. My side is never wrong. What a fucked up way of thinking.

  43. Tim Knight says:

    I always look at big government and dictatorships like this. If that’s what you have as a form of government we would never have Rock & Roll and other forms of popular music and arts because it didn’t fit the rule of obedience. Even in the USA censorship was tried against it but thankfully failed. Don’t ever give up your freedoms because you’ll never get them back without an all out revolution and the spilling of more blood.

  44. Krishna says:

    Lying is the ticket to the demise of freedom. How do you build a united state if facts and truth aren’t critical to the process?

    • Tim Knight says:

      You can’t. We moderate type folks need to put an end to the nonsense. We’ve done it before, we can do it again.

    If you wear the orange one I think it means you get to pick the music at the tailgate. 😉

        Not really being specific!
        But, if it smells like bullshit! It probably is!

        “Kangaroo committee this evening” is pointing a finger at people like you….lmao.

  47. naplesfan2010 says:

    The attack on democracy happened.
    Hundreds of people attacked the US Capitol
    while congress was in session
    with the intent to disrupt the business being conducted there.
    There is no question about that.
    That is not bullshit. That is not a lie.

    • Tim Knight says:

      The majority of people are tired of the lack of common sense. We’re overloading ourselves with propaganda rhetoric. Do we believe in freedom or not?

      Amendment 1
      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.

      It’s the first one.

      You don’t have to agree with everything. But do you believe in freedom or not?

    The Bolts go for the clincher Saturday Night in Amalie Arena!!
    A win sends them to their 3rd straight Stanley Cup Finals!!
    The Old Dolfan is out!

  55. Tim Knight says:

    Krishna, Animal Farm is a great example of how big government can turn on you. Orwell exposed how Stalin was the opposite of his vision. A Democratic-Socialist ideology is an oxymoron. That’s not how people think. Humans are not bees and ants working for the queen.

    Tim we only ran the RPO 18% last year not 90 🙄

    Maybe the NFL will look a little harder at the Watson issue.

    Apparently, Buzbee is going to submit amended “complaints” to include the Houston Texans as part of the 24 lawsuits for knowingly or should have known of Watson’s massage proclivities.

    What could go wrong??????

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      Top-heavy and a very tight window to win

      • Mike E. says:

        I don’t blame them, they’ve clearly made a huge investment already, and just like us, they keep adding pieces. We’ll see how it works out

  61. steveccnv says:

    So I guess Jan 6th people only saw what they wanted to on both sides

    What I saw were vans pulling up with known Antifa and other left wingers getting out carrying ropes and other equipment, then reps calling out some of these guys as they climbed the walls to the capital, then in the stairwell where the lady was shot it was very calm, unlike what rioters looked like, she was shot for no reason IMO, because she was just slapping the glass, not forcing her way in, also there was security talking calmly with protestors

    A large majority of those arrested had social media posts talking about going into the capital to confront congress, proof Trump didn’t incite them to go in, if that’s not correct every word of Trump’s speech is available, please tell me exactly what he said that made it an insurrection?

    We really don’t know what happened, but we do know security was requested at the capital days before and Pelosi refused, very suspicious

    • Krishna says:

      LOL……..several people died dude and two security officers committed suicide after the incident, I would think due to severe PTSD as a result of the “calm” protestors. The capital was trashed and a congressional session was interrupted. See what you want to see.

      Yoda says… disagreements, we have. Label a conspiracy with which we disagree… dishonest at best. Confront the truth, we must. Both sides should we listen to…..Just words…lol

      • steveccnv says:

        1 person died in the capital, the lady wrongfully shot by security, the rest weren’t related, see what they tell you to see

        My conspiracy is they told the security officer to shoot someone, to make the event look worse than it was, nothing that took place in the stairwell warranted a shooting

        The video even after the shooting shows only calm people, including a security guard talking to protestors

      • days64 says:

        Steve… close your eyes… go back to Bush vs, Gore… Clinton could have easily pulled the same… what would you say if a couple Antifa were shot trying to breach the capitol as Gore who lost by what, maybe 500 votes in Florida… Say Clinton was pushing voter fraud… stolen election… Nope… It never happened… Ask yourself… What would Trump have done then?

  62. steveccnv says:

    MM flipped Eichenberg and Jackson, because of the way they fit in the new scheme

    Eichenberg would be setup perfectly between 2 vets and Jackson would be playing in a scheme at a position, that fits his natural ability

    Yogi was right 50% is half mental with Jackson🤪 he just needed his head cleared first, before any improvement could take place, his interviews seem to suggest he’s now good mentaly

  63. steveccnv says:

    Watson is going to be suspended, what we don’t know is when, length, how his will count, will it be based on his 1m contract or some type of flat fee

  64. Mike E. says:

    Wyo – Just read a little blurb about Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo, who the Mets drafted out of High School in 2011. It goes on to say, ( I knew this but forgot it), that Wyoming has no HS baseball programs. Any idea why?

    • steveccnv says:

      The first game I saw here in Vegas Nimmo was playing, he wasn’t imposing, nor did I get the feeling he was going to be a good MLB player

      What I did think was the 51s sure looked a lot like the Reno Aces team I’d seen a few years prior, like they were pewny and didn’t belong in the league, both teams got crushed the nights I saw them

      That Aces’ team that looked so bad, somehow won the 3A national championship

    • Wyoming85 says:

      It’s hard to find that white ball in a snowbank! 😉

      Short season, and that’s also the farming season. Which means that anyone that has a farm, or ranch doesn’t have time for sports.

  65. steveccnv says:

    On Florio saying more of a chance Lamar is a Fin, than Tua throwing 30 tds

    I wouldn’t trade them straight up, let alone giving Baltimore compensation

    Tua is on his way up, Lamar may have a couple more decent years, but I don’t think he’ll ever get back to his peak
