  2. New Age says:

    Just to put it in perspective how good Tyreek with Tua is.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s crazy how good Tyreek is. He’s been that explosive dynamic player from day one as a 5th round pick.

      • New Age says:

        Yep. I’m glad we got him because I was tired of the air show in KC.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I went to the Jets game with really good seats. His quickness jumps out at you. It looks different than other players.

        But Tyreek is never going to put up big numbers in Miami as all the doubters bashed Tua. Tyreek is on pace for over 2,000 yards receiving which would be the record. Tyreek told us about Tua and people doubted his comments. What’s up now? 😉

  3. mf13ss says:

    LOL at suddenly posting how great Tua is regarding stats.

    Some of us KNEW how great he’d become, and we TOLD Y’ALL!!!


  4. Tim Knight says:

    Chubb and Wilson practiced today. I expect both to play Sunday. At the least on pass rush downs Chubb will be out there. Just go after the QB. Wilson should be a breather for Mostert.

  5. New Age says:


  6. steveccnv says:

    Hey, we just traded for Chubb and we got Wilsin from the 49ers…you guts ceack me up

  7. Wyoming85 says:

    not bad

  8. The Flying Pig says:

    11 months later I still think I nailed it

  9. CavalierKong says:

    3 outs to go Astros!

  10. CavalierKong says:

    Awesome!! only the 2nd time in WS history

  11. Tim Knight says:


  12. Tim Knight says:

    Great WS so far. Totally unpredictable.

  13. The Flying Pig says:

    Interesting stuff

  14. Krishna says:

    Flores is a perfect asst LB coach….lol. He’s built his own ceiling. Now, can we stop talking about the piece of shit? Lol!

    • Ken says:

      No, making fun of him is allowed

    • Krishna says:

      Well, I did do that! Lol. Ok

    • ukfinfan says:

      Sometimes you make your own luck in the way you behave Krishna, and since you are an advocate for karma, he got what he deserved!

      I found it really interesting how humble MM is. Said yesterday he can’t believe how lucky he is to be at such a great franchise, with all the freedom he has and CG delivering talent he can work with on a conveyor (paraphrasing). Flores strutted around like we were lucky to have him most of the time. Keep edumacating those Pitt LBs coach. 🙄

      • Krishna says:

        You hit the nail on the head….karma’s a bitch….it’s your choice to create good karma or bad karma.

        Whatever the case, your actions (at least in my life experience) always seem to come back to you; you have either learned the lesson and burned the karma or you are destined to repeat it because you’re too stubborn to see the lesson to be learned. Most are humbled by this realization. Perhaps MM knows this, as well.

  15. Mike E. says:

    I have to say, I’m really excited about getting Bradley Chubb. Sometimes it just takes that one player to transform a defense. Chubb is as talented a player as there is. I know he hasn’t set the NFL on fire yet, but he’s got the goods to do it. I’m also hoping his presence really gets Phillips going. Sometimes players feed off each other and I think we have two really big, physical, talented players that can end up being a dynamic duo.

    • ukfinfan says:

      Ditto Mike. As much as the NFL wants a passer to have virtually no pressure so their flagship star QBs can sit and throw down field all day, it’s still a game won and lost in the trenches and an ability to physically dominate an opponent is something we’ve been on the wrong end of for way too long. Think Ravens, think Bills etc etc. Maybe, just maybe, we are turning the tables on this mismatch a little in our favour?

      @ Hulk – please start smashing everything in sight until Sunday comes around. Can’t wait to play with our new toys!!!

      • Mike E. says:

        It’s nice that we can also mix in Melvin Ingram. I think he’s more suited to being rotated in now and again rather than starting and playing too many snaps. If Chubb and Phillips get it going, Ingram should be able to help us giving one of these guys a play or two off to get a breather without any letdown.

      • ukfinfan says:

        Remember “We need playmakers” from the old blog, who briefly became “we have playmakers”? Time to dust off that second handle again now!

  16. Wyoming85 says:

    There it is

  17. Wyoming85 says:

  18. uwantwat says:

    Just what I wanted to hear. Stops all conjecture about it being a six-month rental. Got to give this staff kudos. They get things done.
    Three good pass rushers now, Chubb, Ogbah and Phillips. Nice!👌👍😊

  19. uwantwat says:

    Ken has it right, I’m excited just like him over this season. Haven’t had this feeling since the days of Ricky and when the wildcat was happening. All of you blokes need to join us on the wagon.

  20. Rockphin says:

    Glad they were able to get a deal done. Now let’s hope his impact on the field matches his impact on the salary cap. Instantly our highest paid player. (although Ogbah counts 11M against the cap this year and I don’t seem to be crying over his one sack and 10 tackles for 11M)

    Just to reiterate. It wasn’t done, until it was done.

  21. naplesfan2010 says:

    That’s a lot of money for 8 sacks.

    It’s not a lot of money for 2 sacks during a Super Bowl victory.

  22. Mike E. says:

    UK – Sure, he’s on twitter, spoken to him a few times over the years and not too long ago

  23. Krishna says:

    We need to pressure the QB….if Chubb can help this D do that, then it’s a win.

    Without Chubb, it’s obvious we don’t have the D to pressure the QB with a 4 or 5 man rush, we just don’t. We are worst 5 in pass D in NFL without Chubb.

    Hopefully, that will begin to change with Chubb.

  24. Wyoming85 says:


    • steveccnv says:

      What a moron, I posted on Tuesday we only have like 37 players under contract next year, but cap expected to go up significantly with the new TV deals and why we’re throwing money around

  25. Ken says:

    Mike E. says:
    November 3, 2022 at 7:36 am (Edit)
    I have to say, I’m really excited about getting Bradley Chubb.
    Do not buy his jersey!

  26. Ken says:

    Is it Sunday yet?!

  27. ukfinfan says:

    Another positive collateral consequence of Cheetah in da house

    • Ken says:

      17.3 YPC in today’s passing game is almost unheard of

    • steveccnv says:

      Noticed that, the last time I checked the stats

      Waddle said last year he’s always been the main focus on O going back to Bama, was hoping his YPR would go up this year, what I didn’t expect were his YPG to go up

  28. ukfinfan says:


  29. Brian in NY says:

    There is a definite lack of a pass rush , but some of that has to be attributed to all of the injuries at CB.

  30. The Flying Pig says:

    Glad to see us quickly pick up Chubb

  31. Brian in NY says:

    After a slow start, Phillips has turned it on the past 3-4 games. Having Chubb on the other side can only help him hit that next gear.

  32. naplesfan2010 says:

    Chubb broke Mario Williams’s records at NC State.
    Here’s hoping he won’t tank on us after signing his big deal as Mario did.

  33. naplesfan2010 says:

    It’s hard to get sacks when it’s easy for the offense to get 8 yard completions whenever they need one due to Iggy laying off 12 yards and the rest of the DBs being rooks or ST guys.

  34. steveccnv says:

    Chubb with 63m in guaranteed money means that’s our injury out, we’ll see how the per year amount is structured

    Counting the rest of this year into his contract we’re looking at about 21m per year, but surely the last year or 2 will have huge cap hits, making this a 3.5 or 4.5 year contract, taking the per year down quite a bit

  35. steveccnv says:

    How many sacks will Chubb have over the next nine games?

    Who gives a fuck? How will he transform the Fins D is the question that’s important

  36. steveccnv says:

    Franchise QB ☆
    Elite WRs ☆
    Elite OLMs ☆
    Elite CBs ☆
    Elite Passrushers ☆
    Elite Safety ☆

    Why not this year?

  37. ukfinfan says:

    We are taking HFA on the road!

  38. ukfinfan says:

    This Tua would never have made this comment last year. MM is not just a game planner and manager, but a sensational man manager too.

  39. Wyoming85 says:

    Man that sux! He could BOOM it! RIP

    Field Yates
    Ray Guy, a 3-time Super Bowl champion, 6-time First Team All Pro and the first pure punter inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, has passed away at the age of 73.

  40. boulderfinfan says:

    I’m excited to watch these guys on Sunday against the bears.

  41. CavalierKong says:

    I was a little slow to the party, but I’m there now and officially excited about what the additions of Chubb and Wilson potentially means for this team. Glad we got the deal done this quickly so it isn’t hanging over our heads.

    My biggest gripe was I didn’t think we could compete for a SB this year, but as I know has been pointed out before, Cincy did it, they certainly had team issues, but they brought it all together at the right time, so why not us?

    • steveccnv says:

      Dallas’ D got transformed with Parsons

      Chubb isn’t him, but he’s more of a complete player, has bullrush strength and quick twitch

      Ogbah was good early, then when he got banged up Phillips came on strong, will be nice to see 2 or 3 of them bring it at the same time

      • CavalierKong says:

        Was watching some of the tape breakdowns on Chubb last night and really liked what I saw. I agree with what you mention above that it isn’t just about his sack numbers, he is top 3 in pass rush win percentage this year and he’s really good against the run. Pairing him with Phillips should open things up for both players.

        Maybe you’re right about us keeping Byron Jones next year too. If he comes back healthy and Howard can get healthy (maybe after the bye for both) and we can start locking down with our CBs again to give the pass rush time…who knows how good the D can be?

    • stangerx says:

      Cav — I still ain’t entertaining Super Bowl this year. Have moved from maybe playoffs to we should be in them. Thinking the Big Game possibles for 2023.

      • CavalierKong says:

        That was really my thinking too until late last night. But the more I look at this team, we really do have a lot of talent across the board. I think the biggest thing that might hold us back right now, and I believe Ken mentioned it yesterday, is really just experience. New HC, new system, playoff experience. Oh, and our effing special teams, lol.

      • stangerx says:

        Once you start talking Bowl, you have to start talking who else is out there. And that starts with the Bills. You can say we beat them but that would directed at the ears of the biggest heat game advantage proponent on this board.

      • CavalierKong says:

        If we don’t win the division, there is the very real possibility we’ll have to go through both the Chiefs and the Bills on the road. Tall order

  42. stangerx says:

    Real psyched we signed Chubb but wondering how it works.

    Broncos can trade Chubb to us no matter what he wants. Dolphins can’t even talk to Chubb or it is tampering (ask Ross about that one). Chubb is under absolutely no obligation to sign with us after the trade. He can just wait till after the season and hit the FA market.

    Only thing I can figure is that the Broncos gave permission for the Dolphins to talk with Chubb and his agent before the trade and they came to at least a general understanding. And that matches up with how quick the signing came after the trade.

  43. New Age says:

    Definitely excited with how this organization is working. Love the work Grier has done and while I preferred Daboll during the hiring process, McDaniels seems to be the right guy for what we need. Tua needed a coach who believed in him and some weapons to thrive and we finally have a franchise QB and the replacement for the Marks Bros way later. Still not sold on our Asst. coaches though.

    Grier is getting us the prime talent for a playoff run and I really believe we can win a playoff game this year. Damn good job Dolphins! I’m finally excited at the potential of one of our teams!

    • stangerx says:

      Tua is not just a different player, but a different man this year. Not sure how much of it is McDaniel versus the departure of Flores.

      • Ken says:

        Supposedly one of the reasons why he refused being captain last year is because he knew Flores wanted Watson

  44. Ken says:

    I don’t know if we are ready to unseat KC or Buffalo as the best in the AFC but I am sure going to enjoy watching us try

    • New Age says:

      Do you think we are #3 though? I’m not sure but I think we are in top 5 for sure. That’s a huge turnaround.

      • stangerx says:

        To put us at #3 is just an opinion, but least it is one you can try to support with a straight face.

      • Ken says:

        I feel much the same way. We are in the conversation. I don’t count the Jets as real. Nice defense but horrible QB and best RB is injured. I can’t see them as being legit for 17 games. Baltimore is a good team and they got better. SD has not quite lived up to expectations but like us they have been slowed by an injury to their QB. Cincy has been exposed a little especially on the OL but Burrow will always make them competitive. There is no one in the AFC South that I think is legit

      • New Age says:

        It’s definitely a supportable one now though, isn’t it? It feels good. We just barely beat a bad team, but I can see the strength of our team right now and we are dangerous.

      • steveccnv says:

        Who is SD Ken🤪

    • stangerx says:

      Think the question right now is if we are legitimate Super Bowl contenders? And keep in mind the majority of those don’t end up in the Super Bowl.

      • New Age says:

        I can’t go that far but we can do like the Bengals last year if we get lucky like they did. I didn’t believe that until we beat the Bills, but we did. It’s too far of a move and too fast just based on our history. At the same time it’s now a possibility in my mind which is refreshing.

      • Ken says:

        If you get in the playoffs you are an SB contender. We have enough talent to be a playoff team

      • New Age says:

        Honestly, things would have to go really badly for us not to hit the playoffs this year. We have a pretty good schedule remaining and like Ken, I think the Jets aren’t very good and will lose to us in the 2nd meeting. I think we can sweep the Pats pretty reliably as well.

      • stangerx says:

        Ken — never been a year when I considered every team that got in the playoffs a legitimate SB contender. Maybe a matter of definition but to me normally 2-4 teams are (varies year to year).

      • stangerx says:

        Sorry — 2-4 in each conference.

      • Ken says:

        Look at the 2007 Giants or Bengals last year

      • steveccnv says:

        I don’t agree Ken, you have to be a better team than just getting in, but feel we can play with anyone

        KC gets by with smoke and mirrors on D at times, so they’re beatable, winning in Buffalo might be a different animal, but someone like KC could knock them off

      • stangerx says:

        Ken — sometimes an 80-1 shot wins a horse race, but he wasn’t considered a contender before the race started.

  45. ukfinfan says:

    As the old adage goes – it’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and prove it?

  46. The Flying Pig says:

    I don’t care what any of the haters say about the Dolphins

    I’m ready to take on the world !

    Who’s with me???

  47. ukfinfan says:

    Holy cow. What a difference a year makes. To everything.

    • New Age says:

      It’s like night and day. Team looked horrible last year under Flores.

    • steveccnv says:

      That would be the Flores culture, he walks down the hall and doesn’t say hello or recognize players

      It’s the same mess going on now with the Raiders, McDaniels is a Belicheat clone of the worst kind

      An ESPN reporter toured all 32 training camps, he said, Raiders was toxic

      • New Age says:

        It’s terrible. Belichick has the record and accomplishments to maybe get away with it. Flores had no record previously and McDaniels a terrible one. They are unable to learn from past mistakes.

      • CavalierKong says:

        It’s crazy because it was one of the reasons McDaniels failed so spectacularly his first time around with the Broncos. You’d think he would have learned something

  48. New Age says:

    Thinking more on Stanger’s topic, I agree with Ken. We are definitely a contender if we think we can be a playoff team. We aren’t a SB favorite because we’re still not at the KC, Buff, maybe even Philly level yet. So, I believe we are a playoff caliber team, so we are also a contender. It feels good.

    • steveccnv says:

      We are a contender, because of our roster and how we play, not because of playoffs

    • stangerx says:

      We make the playoffs and anything can happen. Guess I was trying to distinguish between might win a playoff game and a legitimate contender to make the Big Game.

      • New Age says:

        Stanger, that was my original thought process as well. It’s hard to call yourself a contender when you haven’t won a playoff game in 20 years, but the any given Sunday mantra is even more likely in today’s game. Outside of Brady, the NFL has had a lot of variety in the playoffs since 2000.

  49. Ken says:

    stangerx says:
    November 3, 2022 at 2:10 pm (Edit)
    Ken — sometimes an 80-1 shot wins a horse race, but he wasn’t considered a contender before the race started.
    To quote Han Solo: “never tell me the odds”

  50. Ken says:

    Make the playoffs and you have a chance

    • steveccnv says:

      That doesn’t make you a contender

      • Ken says:

        My point Steve is that if you get hot at the right time you have a chance. There are numerous examples of teams that squeaked in and then went on a run. You can’t do that if you don’t get in

      • ukfinfan says:

        Since the Wild Card System began in 1970, only ten wild card teams have advanced all the way to the Super Bowl. Of those, six won the Super Bowl. It’s not common by any means, but it happens.

      • steveccnv says:

        Ok, but that’s not what you said

      • steveccnv says:

        Also squeaking in like Cincinnati did is different than squeaking in like our last 2 playoff teams

        Cincinnati was blowing the doors off of teams like the Ravens

    • New Age says:

      Not only that but the way we’ve played gives confidence. At no time in the past decade would I have believed we could come back against a huge Baltimore lead or against the Lions, but we did. This team is loaded with weapons just like the Bengals last year and the perennial favorites. We actually have the talent offensively to compete with the big guns and the D to win in a shootout. We can still win the 19-16 games but now we can sling out 35 if we need to. It’s a huge difference.

    • ukfinfan says:

      For me, there are three types of play-off teams. 1/ The Dolphins who were humiliated 62-7 by the Jags and just don’t belong. 2/ The team which plays well over 16/17 games but is out-matched in the play-offs by a more complete team (i.e. one which makes fewer mistakes and takes opportunities which come along). 3/ a team which fights to the final whistle and stays in games to the point of last possession wins.

      We are a 2 or a 3 right now. Who knows where we’ll be come season’s end?

      • steveccnv says:

        I agree, and my point to just making the playoffs doesn’t make you a contender

        With our Pennington led team we weren’t a contender, nor were we, when Pitt beat us

  51. steveccnv says:

    The numbers on Chubb don’t mean anything yet, we need to see the structure, we know we’ll be paying him 70m at least, so 12m per or so

  52. The Flying Pig says:

    I don’t know why you guys are being so cautious?

    We are going to win the Super Bowl!

    (Piggy dances with underwear on his head around the Lombardi Trophy)

  53. CavalierKong says:

    For the first time in a long time it feels like we have a high end modern offense. The lack has held us back for ages. And the reality is, if we play up to our ability, we can play with anyone.

    The only reason I hesitate to say we are serious SB contenders is because we’ll have to run 4 games strong games together and I’m not sure we’re there yet. The team is still developing its offense (only 8 games together) and it might take a full year and a playoff experience to learn what it takes to win the whole thing.

    • Ken says:

      That is kind of how I see us. We are not there quite yet but the potential is there for us to go on a run

      • CavalierKong says:

        I was down on the Chubb trade because I really thought we were still a few players away, but you look at this roster and we have talent everywhere. We just need to put it together and gel…and get a new special teams coordinator.

        Get some playoff experience this year, add a couple more pieces in the offseason, get rid of Crossman, and go on a serious run next year…but if everything lines up for us, we could legitimately compete this year.

        Like New Age was saying, it’s great that we can be in any situation in a game and as fans still believe we have a chance.

      • Ken says:

        Every playoff team is a missing a piece or 2 even the winner of the SB has a hole or 2 to fill

  54. naplesfan2010 says:

    I think the secret weapon is what can make a wild card team a contender.
    The secret weapon is team spirit.
    A team with “magic” or “destiny” can transcend those that are just good enough by record to get in.
    We’ve proven we can come from way behind and win even against high quality coaches and MVP QBs.
    A player like Tyreek can pull off a stunning play to win a game against a “better” team.

  55. Ken says:

    Right now looking at our holes I have to say the biggest hole is in the secondary due to the injuries to Jones and Jones. Second biggest hole is depth on OL once again due to injury. But if Jackson is coming back we may be okay there

    • Tim Knight says:

      Byron Jones has yet to play and we lost 3 other DBs for the season in Trill Williams, Nik Needam and Brandon Jones.

  56. naplesfan2010 says:

    On a related side note, I’m moderately surprised that Hill has not scored more TDs.
    He seems to make most of his catches on routes that terminate at the point of catch.

    Not all of course, but far more than I thought it would be.

    I know some will say that this is because Tua underthrows him,
    which is sometimes true,
    but a bit of that falls on Hill as well.

    A QB can only throw a football just so far,
    just as a FG kicker is not going to kick a 90 yard FG.

    And the farther the ball is thrown,
    the less accurate it will be because of wind and angle.

    Just like in golf. Even pros put tee shots in the rough or the woods, because a quarter inch off multiplied by 300 yards is a huge amount of feet offline. Same with putts.

    Hill can just run like it’s a hundred yard dash and
    out-run the DBs at the 60 or 70 yard mark.

    But that’s not helping your OL who have to hold up long enough for you to run that far and your QB who must maintain accuracy like a tee shot. Footballs hook, too.

    It’s a nice problem to have though, isn’t it?

    • Ken says:

      Also because Hill is drawing coverage he is creating opportunities for Waddle and Gisecki who are racking up TDs right now

    • CavalierKong says:

      During the Lions game they said Hill has been targeted just once in the red zone which is crazy when you think about it. I still am not sure about just once, but he definitely isn’t targeted much.

      I think teams must be doubling him in the red zone, and since he has less space to work, he’s not getting open as much, but it is opening it up for Waddle and Gesicki.

      • CavalierKong says:

        It really works out great for us because our 1 and 1a guys both get to eat. Tyreek gets the real big yardage numbers and the occasional long score, and Waddle gets good yardage and the majority of TDs.

  57. Tim Knight says:

    Wasn’t “We Need Playmakers” Rock’s other handle when a lot of us were using different names?

  58. naplesfan2010 says:

    If he keeps having games like the Lions and Bills and Ravens games,
    people will remember why “tank for Tua”
    was a viable thing to be accusing us of doing.

  59. Brian in NY says:

    There are more teams and wild card teams now, so that super bowl number should go up

  60. naplesfan2010 says:

    I’ve been watching some clips of Jeff Wilson, and
    wow that guy is running full speed when he hits the hole (usually).

    That’s what this offense needs the RBs to be doing. Mostert does this a lot.

    Either that or dig your back foot into the dirt and cut hard off your blocker’s ass.

    Plus Jeff showed some nice body twist to catch balls thrown over the wrong shoulder.
    A lot of RBs are too muscle-bound to do that on the regular.

    I just don’t see a path for the ravens to make it to number one seed though. It’s totally fucked that they get 24 days off in the middle of the season. And get a long week after the Thursday night game. Schedulers being really sweet to them while they fuck us year after year

    I don’t see them losing any of those games (including us in Buffalo)

    They already beat the ravens this season

    There is no way that the ravens are taking the number one seed unless Josh Allen loves his knee next week

  71. steveccnv says:

    Especially after getting McCaffrey, it good to not have to root against 49ers

    Dolphins can’t a big head, you beat the Lions okay
    Now you have to play on the road again
    There’s a lot of work to do
    I agree. We are suddenly not a juggernaut just because we added 2 more good players.

    We are a team who in the last 5 games got slammed by the Bengals, scorched by Zack Wilson and the Jets, manhandled by the Vikings, then barely squeaked out wins vs the 2-6 Steelers and 1-6 Lions.

    For some to think we are SB contenders with our secondary and all the other injuries is almost delusional.

    With the Bills remaining schedule, our best bet will probably be a WC birth unless the injury bug hits Buffalo.

    I am just taking it 1 game at a time.

    What do you think Josh Allen does to his own knees?

  74. The Flying Pig says:

    I think there’s a real shot for the patriots to hear the bills in foxboro on 12/1

  75. Krishna says:

    We’re 5-3 and need to be 6-3 after this weekend. One game at a time….lol

  76. Krishna says:

    We have a lot of room to be/get better. We need to improve every game from this point forward. Given where we’re at, we should not be complacent.

    Jeff Wilson, on Raheem Mostert: When I was undrafted, he was the person who took me out to breakfast and told me what to expect. “Gave me that big brother feel.”

    Jeff Wilson says he asked the 49ers for a trade. Was happy to reunite with Mike McDaniel and Raheem Mostert.

    Wilson on his fit in this offense – It’s like riding a bike. I’ve been doing this since Day 1. Same run style, same passes, some one on one matchups to get you in the open field. It’s very familiar, very comfortable and I’m excited to get into this offense.

    Jeff Wilson said after Mike McDaniel worked him out in college he felt like he’d known him his whole life.

    Yup! And in the last two games against the Stealers* and Lions? We beat them by a cumulative mere 10 points.

    Let us not think we’re so-called ‘contenders’ just yet… let it play out.

    Me after the trade deadline, not getting ahead of myself

    My Friend: Piggy, got any plans this weekend?

    Dos mas!

    Let’s GO!

    Surprisingly entertaining first half on Thursday night football

    Tres mas!

    There’s a footballer ⚽ who plays for Man United who, as a kid, fixed weights to the top of his feet and trained with them so when he took them off, he had even quicker feet (his stepovers are the stuff of legend

    Looks like Cheetah has his own version of this?

    • Ken says:

      Butter, yum

    • steveccnv says:

      He has the best football hands, because he can get to passes others can’t

      He’s so quick, he can maneuver on the fly, putting himself in great position

      In a stationary pass catching competition with other WRs I’d bet he doesn’t come out on top, but football isn’t stationary

  88. Ken says:

    Is it Sunday yet?!😡

  89. steveccnv says:

    We went from f#*%$#@k 49ers got McCaffrey to son of a bitch Wilson was traded to us

  90. ukfinfan says:

    Record equalers

  91. ukfinfan says:

    Flex options – great for y’all, but matchsticks under the eyelids for me.

  92. steveccnv says:

    Bears trade away Roquan Smith and Robert Quinn, there 2 best defenders, we add Chubb, our D got better there’s got worse

    They got Claypool, who isn’t expected to do much until he’s up to speed, but who knows how long that will take

    Think he was brought in to help evaluate Fields the rest of season, not so much to win now

    We got Wilson, who is ready to step right in, being familiar with MMs O

    The weather is going to be nice

    Lots of advantages our way, that we haven’t seen, since early in the season

  93. ukfinfan says:

    Third richest guaranteed money contract. Love or hate Ross (and most of us are in the latter camp) he throws money at everything.

    • steveccnv says:

      Omar is an idiot, sure guaranteed money matters, but you still have to look at the structure of the contract to see when the unlikely to be executed year(s) take place and how much cap was allotted there

      The Tyreek contract has a massive 5th year cap of 50m, so basically just remove that year and average the rest

      I expect to see something similar with Chubb, you give a little more guaranteed money, which you expect to pay anyways for a 5th year void year

    • steveccnv says:

      Ross throwing money at stuff doesn’t suck, it’s not him though making the suggestion of large guaranteed money, he just oks it

  94. steveccnv says:

    It could be a 47m 5th year cap hit

    The signing bonus part will be dead money if/when cut in 5th year

    63m guaranteed + 7m for this year, so 70m ÷ 4.5 = 15.55m avg could be his real avg

    By making a trade, instead of FA, you get lower years left to avg in

    • steveccnv says:

      15.55 isn’t bad for a top pass rusher ranked #3 in passrush win rate

      • steveccnv says:

        What we don’t know is what other DEs are really making, unless we care enough to go calculate them, but someone like TJ Watt, who didn’t change teams, doesn’t have the low year figured in, but you also didn’t have to give up compensation for him

  95. Mike E. says:

    NEW BLOG UP!!!

  96. steveccnv says:

    Don’t worry about the Chubb contract it’s fine and not going to put us in cap hell

    Not sure why some other teams aren’t taking advantage of the new cap ceiling coming in 2023

    Jets, Buffalo and KC have been taking advantage of too

    • The Flying Pig says:

      There’s a bunch of free agent pass rushers about to hit the market
      They locked him up before the market jumps on price

  97. steveccnv says:

    The high today in my hood is 61 high 41 low winds at 11, pretty close to game day
