That’s a lot of talent not present.
I think the NFL with limiting the preseason workouts and practices. Instead of preventing injuries I think players are more susceptible to injuries during the season this way
“The Miami Dolphins are in a weird spot with Mike Gesicki, who is underused in coach Mike McDaniel’s offense. After 73 catches a year ago, he has 15 through the first six games, though three have gone for touchdowns.
Sources say Miami is in the “we’re-willing-to-listen” phase with Gesicki, but isn’t quite shopping his services to other teams. Execs I’ve talked to don’t want much to do with his $10.9 million franchise tag and find it odd Miami placed the tag on him in March to sit him on the bench.”
— ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler
Because he is a threat. That is why they tagged him. They had little idea how he would do in this new offense. They would have been stupid not to give his talent a shot.
Unfortunately, he just doesn’t have it in him to be a physical blocker or RAC guy.
I like Gesicki, but never thought he would fit in the new O if was similar to the San Fran one. But actually think he fits in m ore with Teddy or Skylar behind center. More find a space and fill it stuff.
WR DeSean Jackson’s signing to the Ravens’ practice squad was officially announced by the team.

DB Cody Davis will undergo season-ending knee surgery, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source.
Tyreek Hill – on a record receiving yards pace – to @gunnerhal
and me: “For me, it’s easy because I have a great quarterback, great head coach, and I’m in a great organization. For me, it’s like going in a store, buying a Snicker’s bar and just walking out….
On pace for 1986 yards, 1964 is the record from Megatron
“The sources said Kraft joined the overwhelming majority in strong support for the measure, with Jones the lone dissenter in the owners-only session, eventually telling Kraft, “Don’t f— with me.”
Kraft replied, “Excuse me?”
“Don’t mess with me,” Jones said.”
— Over heard at the owner’s meeting concerning a measure about Goodell’s next contract.
Overall we’re #2 in receiving yards, which is quite amazing compared to the past, while starting 3 different QBs
Shows the value of Tyreek
We really are a good team, or will be once healthy
I do believe this team can get back on track and have a successful season.
I am really stunned that we are 7.5 favorites over the Steelers*.
Miami Dolphins Trivia
Some of my former teammates include QB Mark Brunell, RB Thurman Thomas, RB Shaun Alexander, RB LaDainian Tomlinson, WR Antwaan Randle El,
WR Cris Carter, WR David Boston, and FB Tony Richardson.
Who am I?
First to get it right will receive an autographed, limited edition of Tim’s new book: “The Enchanting Knight”!
Brian Cox 🖕🖕
GREAT guess… but NO.
Looking at the current record and the schedule, if we can pull ourselves out of this three-game losing streak and stack some wins, we may be playing the Jets at home for a playoff spot last game of the year.
I really didn’t think the Jets would be in contention this soon.
I did. The Jets have a lot of good young talent and they’re going to get better.
LOL Stimulife health liked this article…..
It’s only the matchup graphics
You’re in the right era, but NO.
You were far closer with a Defensive player when ya said Brian Cox.
The it’s the DE we traded for from the Bears for a WR
Yes him damn
Where’s Tim? He usually eats these things up!
He’d have had it by now
Getting warmer! But NO.
I chose this trivia question for a reason… memory tricks us.
You’d have sworn he was a life-long Phin, but he wasn’t.
Correct answer, my guy SON!
Now get a Tim for his new book! LOL
That was a good question
Thank you! I like to challenge conventional thinking.
I miss doing these “Dolphins Trivia” matters as I used to do back in the day. Going to continue doing it to bring us back. 🙂
M13, I remember Mark Brunell and JT being on the Jets at the same time. Not sure about the others though.
Thinking defensive player, was it Jason Taylor?
Awe dang. 7 minutes too late.
I should have kept refreshing for the hints. lol
M13 — I would be shocked if anyone gets that question right without hints.
Hence the difficulty of the question posed!
Keyshawn Johnson can kiss my pimply white ass
Yes there were consequences from sitting in a puddle of beer Sunday lol.
TMI? absolutely 😆
I was a witness to early stages of chapping an ass…lol
Keyshawn Johnson is so concerned about Tua’s health and really questions Miami’s integrity for rushing him back so quickly.
Go fuck yourself! I don’t give a fucking shit about Tua Tagovailoa. Where where is your outrage last year while Teddy Bridgewater was concussed!!?? We’re 187 concussions in the NFL last year. Were you crusading for each of them I didn’t hear you say shit and I watch your show every day. Just fucking stop it.
Pickett is in the protocol right now but is expected to play Sunday but that’s fine
The book isn’t finished. I’m really struggling with the ending. Should everyone live or die? LOL
I like Mike McDaniel, but some stretch plays he calls I think are more hopeful than realistic the way the offense is playing. Stick with some more bread and butter until we get some guys back.
Tyreek Hill is the 2nd highest graded offensive player in ALL of football according to PFF
Guess sometimes you get what you paid for. 🙂
I really hope the Eagles go undefeated this year and win the superbowl. Just because I am so sick of Dolphins fans holding onto the “Glory” of something that happened half a century ago.
I would rather a playoff win in the last 20 years than an undefeated season that 3/4 of the fans were not even alive for!
The Norsemen were the first Europeans to discover America! Woooo hooo! Go Norsemen. History is history.
Didn’t the indigenous population beat the Norsemen to America?
Not from Europe….
I haven’t seen anyone start it yet so here goes;
You know the drill. Cut and paste, add your score
Tua, Reek, Waddle and Gesicki are going to light it up Sunday night!
🎰 24-10 🐬
I am serious where is the fucking outrage? Pickett, Freiermuth and Levi Wallace all had CONFIRMED concussions and are all on track to play again a week later!!!
They ALL practiced in full yesterday! Why isn’t the national media screaming about this!?!?!? I had to listen to mush mouth Keshawn Johnson go on and on yesterday on NFL live about how turrible the Dolphins are for “rushing Tua back after only 3 weeks…” Where is his rebuke of the Terrible Towels and their Terrible Coach?
We had to sit our non-concussed QB for 5 days after the jets fan spotter lied about seeing ataxia on the Teddy sack. How is it possible that three CONFIRMED concussed players were able to practice in full 4 days after being concussed???????
The colossal hypocrisy of everyone surrounding the NFL.

Good morning all !!
Thanks Stanger and everyone else who helped put the fest together. Everybody was awesome as usual.
Rock you sitting in that beer was F-ing Krishna’s fault for kicking over my 12 dollar stella. I was at highest part of the stadium however I believe Krishna may have been higher if you know what I mean
Was awesome to see you Cap Stubbs. And the clean shaven version we know and love as well. 🙂
The water out here is coming down nicely, finally. I think by Saturday I should be able to finally drive out of here 20 + days unable to drive out
Where do you live
Morning, Cap’n. Good to read that the lake at captain’s house is finally draining.
Tagovailoa on Wednesday spoke to reporters for the first time since getting hit and talked about what he was told by doctors during his many appointments over the last three weeks.
“There’s not necessarily as much long-term risk,” Tagovailoa said. “Let’s say guys get about six concussions. Well, those guys that only have six concussions that are playing the position that I’m playing, where we don’t hit as much, are less susceptible to getting CTE later on in their years than someone who’s playing a position where they’re constantly taking hits or blows to the head, which would be O-line, D-line, linebackers.
“And that’s kind of some of the information that I’ve been given from a lot of these doctors that are the best of the best in their field.”
Research supports what Tua is saying. The big, knockout blows are frightening — particularly when they cause the fencing posture that Tagovailoa involuntarily assumed on the field in Cincinnati. But they might not be the most dangerous in the long-term.
Experts believe repeated head impact — causing subconcussive head injuries — is the biggest cause of CTE. That would suggest offensive and defensive linemen — who hit and get hit on every play — are the most at risk.
Nah, eff that. Those doctor guys on twitter and on the NFL talk shows said he should retire because you know, concussions and stuff…
That’s great news!
As for why these other players like Pinkett are able to get back on the field so quickly without outrage by the media is, because they didn’t have the reaction Tua did immediately following the hit
Betty’s handling was all BS
It really is great news. I’ll admit, I’m going to be cringing every time he gets hit for at least the first couple games. But it feels better knowing what actual medical professionals have been telling him in regards to his risk moving forward.
You know how many headlines I’ve rad that include “the concerning things Tua said about his concussion” or some version of that? And in every one of them, the ‘concerning’ thing was that he doesn’t remember the hit or being carted off the field.
Shouldn’t the concerning thing be that all these players taking dozens of hits to the head each game, but not sustaining concussions are the most at risk? The only way to protect those players is to stop playing…
Whaaaaaat? But, but, then we wouldn’t have football…hmmm.
(Fans in the millions suddenly changing their tune from concerned for player health to ‘Oh well, these guys are paid to take those risks!’)
Capt! It was a blast seeing you. Sorry Krishna spilled your beer. I can’t blame him for me sitting in it though. I blame that on the 20 oz of 150 proof homer-aid I drank before the game.
Steve, I live in stone island right off lake Monroe
Rock it was a blast, you handled yourself pretty well considering the amount of homeraide you drank. Somehow my section turned in to the 420 section, which I had no problems with lol
Oh, way up there. You’re right in the middle of where my spread out family is (Deltona, Daytona, Clermont, Viera)
Another ounce or two of homer-aid, and you may have actually ran down on the field and strangled that ref, lol.
True that. That “referees suck” chant was awesome. I don’t know if people watching TV could tell that half the stadium was purple. The vikes travel well
They really showed up. From our angle I couldn’t tell if kicks went between the posts or not, and I couldn’t tell by the crowd reaction either because there were so many damn Vikings fans. I had to watch the refs, lol.
He needs to slip into the TE room and explain that to Gesicki who inexplicably leaves his feet on every catch!
Throwing the ball, so the receiver doesn’t have to jump surely helps for YAC
Receivers like to jump to put the ball in their sweet spot, those that do it too often unnecessarily aren’t great receivers, no matter what the stats might say
Another reason why Tua is so good is he throws a very catchable ball, one that doesn’t require jumping, guys that throw it too hard turn their receivers into jumpers
The Waddle safety last year against the Raiders was thrown too high causing a jump catch, and by the time he landed the DB was right there
The home team generally gets more favorable calls, unless you’re talking about the Fins
Jets sure got them against us in NY, GB gets them on a regular basis, the cheats…don’t need to say more
I still haven’t gone back and rewatched the game on TV yet, but the first thing I’ll do is watch those 5 penalties in 7 plays to see how many were clear cut and how many were questionable.
Stanger, who watched from home said he thought they were all legitimate, though some may have been tickytacky, still called on an actual penalty. (Now that said, you CAN find a penalty on EVERY play if you look hard enough.
That is my thought too (you can find a penalty on any play).
If they are clear cut, like the illegal man downfield or holding where he’s mugging him, ok, I can live with it, but if some of them were 50/50 calls and they kept calling them, that’s some BS.
My thoughts too on the 50/50 calls, I’d lean towards agenda based calls in that circumstance
LOL yeah, I was pretty worked up by that drive with 5 flags thrown! I was ready to jump the wall and run out to beat that umpire’s ass. Knowing that it wouldn’t just be the Hardrock jail with a TV but Miami Dade county lockup and no ride after is what stopped me.
I hope so! He was supposed to be our “secret” weapon when teams tried to take Waddle and Hill away.
I don’t really care about Wilson it’s nice to know our O works with lesser receivers
We’re #2 in passing yards per game, we don’t have a problem in the passing game as far as yards go, we have a problem with backup QBs throwing ints and being inaccurate, Skylar gets a pass, but…
They’re here! lol
It was from Utah, so… Area 51 very close

Looks like I drank too much of the Homeraide this weekend. I appear to be the most optimistic about Tua’s return and us being able to score
Dan Orlovsky had a nice segment on NFL live the other day that showed clips that reinforced MM’s statement that the team was playing well but the plays were failing because not all 11 were able to execute their responsibility. How even with Skylar and / or Teddy back there, it wasn’t because of the QB.
He showed one play where we through a screen and the guard was pulling. Instead of running down the line and then turning up field to block, the guard ran out towards the guy he wanted to block. But the guy wasn’t there because he was reacting to the play to and the guard whiffed. The WR was taken down of little or no gain. He showed the play from another angle and if the guard had done what he is taught (run down the line, and THEN block) there was only one other play on D who could have POSSIBLY gotten to the ball carrier to prevent a TD. AND there were two Dolphins player set up to block that one guy. The play design worked perfectly. It would have been a TD (most likely) from 40 yards out because there was no one there to stop it.
The guard F’n up cost the TD. He showed 3-4 other plays that were similar. Everyone played their part, but one of the 11 f’d up and the play failed.
It as a good segment that really opened my eyes and reinforced the team aspect of the game for me.
** We THREW a screen. Speech text sux.
ARMSTEAD BACK Dolphins left tackle Terron Armstead – who missed all of the Vikings game and most of the previous week’s Jets game with a toe injury – was spotted at practice on Thursday for the first time in a month. There’s hope he will be able to play on Sunday against Pittsburgh.
I suspect Bridgewater did really have a concussion which is why he didn’t clear protocol immediately. The testing must have come back with positive findings
Why do you suspect such BS? They reported literally MOMENTS after the play that he was not concussed. They reported after the game that he was fine and was not concussed. They reported the next day that he was fine and had not been concussed. Why would you believe otherwise?
There are steps that are SUPPOSED to be taken. The Steelers are obviously NOT taking said steps and should be investigated and penalized for it. The Dolphins who were under a microscope followed them to a T, thus Teddy didn’t practice fully until Friday with limited participation on Thursday. The first day he was eligible to practice was THURSDAY according to the protocol.
The Steelers obviously have not followed the protocol.
I suspect because they didn’t clear him immediately so there must have been some symptoms present. The reporting was either inaccurate or mis construed
The steelers have not had enough time between Sunday afternoon and Wednesday morning to go through the 5 steps. I really don’t understand why they are still talking about Tua and not the THREE GUYS from the Steelers WHO ALL HAVE CONCUSSIONS!!!
D0lphins are favored by 7.5 (thanks Tua).
Wonder what the spread would be if kickoff was at 1:05 instead of 8:20?
So Tua clears all the concussion protocols and there are still pundits bitching that he shouldn’t play yet. Why?

Teddy must have been SO concussed that had he played all 4 quarters against the Vikes, he was projected to throw for well over 439 yards.
By the way, that would have been #3 ALL-TIME in Dolphins history, behind only Marino’s 521 and 450-yard games.
Sorry, PFR’s STADHEAD didn’t take into account Tua’s 469 passing yards against the Ravens this year.
So Teddy would have been #4 All-TIME in Dolphins history, projected over 4 quarters against the Vikes.
You can throw for all those yards, but it doesn’t mean much, if you can’t score enough or turn the ball over too frequently or at the most inopportune times
You’ll get zero-argument from me on that because you’re correct. Just remember, that first INT wasn’t on Teddy.
He had cleared protocol by Thursday and thus was not concussed on game day. Although his pocket awareness certainly looked suspect
Generally speaking, I generally know what position to target in the next Draft before we even take our first snap the calendar year prior.
I honestly didn’t know what position to target for next year for the first time in many years. However, it’s becoming very clear that CB and OT should be focused upon in the ’23 Draft, IMO.
And contingent upon the future of Mike Gesicki in Mimai, TE is right up there as well.
I hope everybody on this blog realizes how badly Steve Ross fucked us, being we’ve been docked a 1st rounder in the 2023 Draft.
All of the efforts to parlay draft picks for the future were brought to a screeching halt due to Ross’ BS meddling.
And for a 45-year-old QB! WTF!
Chris Grier was playing 3D chess while Ross was trying to court Tom Brady and Gisele for personal profit.
Kind of old news.
No doubt, but it still stings to this day… and come Draft Day ’23, we’ll all be reminded of as much.
Some of us are scouting the college ranks to improve our team for ’23 and beyond… that’s the only reason I bring this up.
It’s not about a vendetta, it’s about ‘fuck me… what we would have been able to do’.
Least Ross is off the suspended list now. Used to like seeing him head into the stadium across from where OD’s crew set up (in the handicap area right across from the entrance on the home side).
From a purely cynical point of view, I’m actually kind of amazed we didn’t end up getting Tom Brady signed as our QB this year.
It would have been just our luck to sign him, then all this personal shyte happens to him that blows up his football season, lol.
I mean, we could have signed him, still gotten docked a 1st and 3rd, alienated Tua, and had a crappy version of Tom Brady that may not even finish out the season. 😭
(I know obviously it would have been more complicated than just ‘signing’ him as he was Tampa property, but we could have made it happen somehow, so probably you could add ‘lost some picks in the trade for Brady’ into that clusterf^ck…)
Ross needs to stay out of the football recruiting business. Not sure he even realizes most Dolphins fans didn’t want Brady.
If his latest fiasco didn’t convince him of that, then nothing will.
That’s true. I hope he has someone in his ear saying back off.
“No. I mean, I think I just kind of like I said, I just kind of go about my business. Whatever happens, happens. And I’ve been here for five years now. I love it here. I’m happy to be here. And if I stay here, which I mean, I would assume, I would. I’m excited to continue to be here, make plays and you know, help the team win and move forward and all that kind of stuff for the rest of season.”
— Mike Gesicki on whether he has paid attention to the reports the Phins are shopping him.
On Steve Ross . My buddy that I brought put a deposit on club seats next year. That’s why we bolted a little earlier on tailgating. We were having a beer in the ” club” and I swear he was sitting right next to us . Obviously in disguise he wasn’t wearing his glasses 🙄
Was he wearing a cape?
Lol …… no however he had his face painted. My friend said no. Butt I know what I saw…. kind of like a UFO
I think the big reason there’s more talk about Tua’s concussion and any of the others is what happened with his hands. Posturing or whatever it’s called. That does make a difference. Even so, I think the NFL needs to look at the Pittsburgh players. I agree with whoever said it, they didn’t have time to go through all those phases before they were back at practice. They need a protocol for the protocol. 😂
He was knocked out. I’ve seen that hand thing in MMA. I’m sure boxers do that to but you can’t see their hands.
The play Tua got hurt on in the Bengals game was a play he should have aborted. Nick Saban said he never wants to take the competitor out of a player but sometimes it’s better to just live for another play referring to Tua. I think McDaniel is dealing with the same thing with Tua. Protect yourself more. Tua doesn’t like giving up on a play or hates when a play breaks down and he wants to try and make something happen. That’s great! But sometimes just play smarter and throw it away or brace for a sack. Don’t make yourself vulnerable to big hits.
On the play Tua got hurt he could’ve easily gotten away from that fatty, but he either didn’t see him or something, his reaction time was more like Betty’s is
WOAH! Didn’t know Andy Daulton had that in him!
He aught to take it out then?
What 3 picks?
It’s weird the Blues have only played 2 games. Some teams have as many as 6 and we don’t play our 3rd for another couple days.
We’ve got bigger issues as our team is trying to kill Tua. LOL
Fest was a BLAST !! Thanx to all who attended and the many who aided with the Food and Meet ups … Krishna , your SIL burgers looked awesome , I was gonna have one post game , but kinda missed the left turn at Albuquerque and missed saying good bye to a lot of ya …
Was very nice to meet a few new faces .. we are an AWESOME BUNCH …
Jahndoh : I hope ya made it back okay .. will touch base in December to see if ya want to meet up for either game in Cali .. either way we will look your brewery up in the way down
McCaffrey traded to 9ers for a Boatload of picks
Glad we didn’t make that mistake
Wish SF hadn’t made that mistake
I know, McCaffrey will be a beast in that offense.
Wow, after that trade 49er’s only have 3 picks next year and don’t pick until the 5th round. They have a 5th and two 7th round picks.
Wonder which QB Carolina is going to select. My guess it will be CJ Stroud from Ohio State.
Kinda surprised the Panthers didn’t get a better offer for McCaffrey.
Lucky to get that, because of his past injuries
Either the Panthers didn’t like the long term injury issues or they traded to tank
Where’s the investigation?
He is an oft injured RB
We’ve already got too much money tied up into CB, so why is the media clamoring for us to trade Gesicki for another one?
Sure we’ve got some injuries there, but next man up hasn’t been bad, even Iggy has joined the party
Gesicki showed his value to our O last week, he’s worth a continued look the rest of the season
Jones is not healthy and we likely release him at the end of the season
Pure speculation, so I object your honor
Iggy, as one reporter wrote he saw something for first time, when he turned his head back around, might have actually had his light come on
Wouldn’t that be some great news if it turns out to be true
NEW BLOG UP!!!
Got back from Miami late last night. Need a vacation now lol.
Nice write Mike. It was please you meet everyone. I’ll be there next year as well!
