    The OL is being challenged with injuries. Coaches have to adjust to that.

    Is the One sided helmet new for the Colts ?? I dont recall seeing it ever before

    If that’s you, it will take time to adjust but funny. If not, welcome!

    Howie’s List

    Week 13: 🐬 @ ⛏

    🐷 28-10 🐬
    🌴 16-13 🐬
    🗿23-20 ⛏ 😭

    • Rockphin says:

      That’s if things go well. If our D let’s things get out of hand it may be 38-13 with the left side of our line being backups and the RT being up in the air. I am not feeling confident about this week’s game.

      I would love for MM to kick the doors in so-to-speak when he goes back to face his old team, but I don’t think we match up well, especially with the injuries the way they are.

  17. Rockphin says:

    On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed his initial injury report on running back Elijah Mitchell. The sophomore back did in fact suffer another MCL sprain against the Saints. It is not a continuation of his MCL sprain from Week 1.

    Rookie guard Spencer Burford suffered an ankle injury in the second half of Sunday’s contest. Per Shanahan, he hopes to have his offensive lineman back sometime this week.

    Running back Christian McCaffrey developed a knee irritation during the game which the head coach says will be managed throughout the week.

    Wide receiver Deebo Samuel sustained a knee contusion on Sunday but was not named on Monday’s list of injuries.

    Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who took a big hit on a second half snap that resulted in a roughing the passer penalty on New Orleans, also managed to stay off the 49ers injury list.

    As for defensive lineman Arik Armstead, who is still working his way back from separate foot and ankle injuries, the plan is for him to return to practice on Wednesday. Friday was his first workout back since the team’s Week 4 contest versus the Los Angeles Rams.

  18. steveccnv says:

    They have guys nicked up too, but looks like there’s will play

    Think it would be more likely we loose the next 3, than win 1 or more

    Armstead is such a big part of what we do, not having him is worse than Hill being out

  19. ukfinfan says:

    There’s no doubt about it, we are getting more pressure on opposing QBs at the right time. Let’s hope it continues

  20. naplesfan2010 says:

    We’ll need to play our best game of the year and
    get a turnover by the Defense to win this one.

    Hard to predict because of the effect of McDaniel’s prior relationships there.

    I think it will favor us, since they are still them, same HC and most of the same players, whereas McDaniel has adapted that system to fit Tua and Hill, which means their coaches don’t know our system and personnel as well as we know theirs.

    I hope that gives us some small advantage.

    Their TEs will probably beat us.

    Love the confidence from the two guys who just came from there….

  24. Rockphin says:

    From John Breech at CBS

    Dolphins (+3.5) at 49ers (4:05 p.m. ET, Fox): Mike McDaniel spent five years with the 49ers before being hired as the Dolphins coach and you can tell, because he’s essentially built the Dolphins to be the AFC version of the 49ers. The 49ers have struggled against good teams this year and the Dolphins are a good team. PICK: Dolphins 27-24 over 49ers.

  25. Rockphin says:

    Also from Breech at CBS

    Miami (8-3) at San Francisco (7-4)
    4:05 p.m ET (Fox)

    I have to say, whoever is in charge of flexing Sunday night games this year fell asleep at the wheel this week because there are about eight better games than the one we’re getting, which is Colts at Cowboys. If it had been up to me, this game would have been my first choice

    This game is fascinating on multiple levels and one reason for that is because the Dolphins are coached by Mike McDaniel, who spent five seasons with the 49ers (2017-21) before being hired by Miami in January. Since being hired, McDaniel has basically done everything in his power to turn the Dolphins into the AFC version of the 49ers.

    Get a QB who gets no respect even though all they do is win? Check.
    Get a dynamic receiver who can also run the ball? Check.
    Get a running back or two who can line up anywhere? Check.
    The best part about that last thing is that McDaniel literally stole his running backs from the 49ers. Raheem Mostert spent five seasons in San Francisco before signing with the Dolphins prior to the 2022 season. Miami also acquired Jeff Wilson from the 49ers just before the trade deadline this year.

    These two teams are so alike that we should probably just go ahead and stop using the Spiderman meme because it will never apply to anything more than it does to this game.

    I bet Mike McDaniel and Kyle Shanahan are under those masks.

    If there’s one advantage the 49ers have in this game, it’s that they have one of the best defenses in the NFL. However, I’m not fully sure what to make of that, because one reason their defensive numbers are so good is because they’ve played some of the worst teams in the NFL. Yes, you have to play who’s on your schedule, but beating up on bad teams doesn’t tell me anything about you.

    Through 12 weeks, the 49ers have had the easiest strength of schedule in the NFL. Their opponents have a combined winning percentage of just .397, which is crazy when you consider that no other NFL team is even at .420 (The Dolphins’ strength of schedule through 12 weeks has been .496).

    The 49ers have played four teams this year that currently have five wins or more and they’re 2-2 in those games. I think what I’m trying to say here is that I’m going to need proof that the 49ers can beat good teams before I start picking them to beat good teams.

    The pick: Dolphins 27-24 over 49ers.

    • CavalierKong says:

      I read that article earlier today.
      This part cracked me up:

      …turn the Dolphins into the AFC version of the 49ers.

      Get a QB who gets no respect even though all they do is win? Check.
      Get a dynamic receiver who can also run the ball? Check.
      Get a running back or two who can line up anywhere? Check.

      So true 🤣

  26. Rockphin says:

    Some equal time for the defense

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      Wilkins is also 4th in the league in tackles by a DL with 31.
      Sieler is tied for 13th at 24.

      There are over 130 DL in the rankings.

  27. stangerx says:

    “Pro Football Focus’ five highest-rated Dolphins on offense Sunday: River Cracraft, Tyreek Hill, Tua Tagovailoa, Terron Armstead and Connor Williams.

    PFF’s five highest-rated Dolphins on defense on Sunday: Jerome Baker, Christian Wilkins, Raekwon Davis, Xavien Howard and McKinley.”

  28. CavalierKong says:

    I just had a wonderful conversation with my Pets fan work buddy. He is dejected about playing the Bills this Thursday and doesn’t think they have a chance. He is also dejected his team still has to face them again and still has us on the schedule.

    “Even when you guys suck, you always give us a hard time, now that you’re a good team- forget about it”

    OH, and he complained about the refs favoring Minny in their game last week. As NJ Phin Fan used to say- BWAHAHAHAHAHA

    Glorious!!! LOL

    • Ken says:

      It’s only soccer 😉

    • stangerx says:

      Glad we won — but hard not to like the Iranian team. Given the turmoil and protests back home, the players did not sing their anthem in the first match. Then Goon Squad Iran stepped in. Since a lot of them play in other countries the pitch was “do that again and your families will suffer.” They sang for the 2nd game but only clearly begrudgingly.

    • Ken says:

      Piggy the Iranians don’t eat pork

  34. pheloniusphish says:

    This why I ask why everyone is so high on the 49’ers…They haven’t played anyone…softest strength of schedule in the league. When they did play a good team – KC – they were blown out 44-22. And they have lost to the likes of Houston, Denver, and Atlanta. The talking heads can slobber over them all they want. Same guys who said Tua was a bust.

  35. stangerx says:

    US wins — here’s the only 20 seconds you need. The dude did give it up on the play like a WR….. was out the whole 2nd half because of it.

    He sounds just like Nancy, afraid to lose power over the duopoly (monopoly) forever. His actions speak louder than his words, and he’s a hypocrite.

    Stanger, this Turtle only supported GOPers (RINOs) who would vote for HIM, not for the Constitution he supposedly represents. There is no room in the Republican Party for the likes of Mitch McConnell — and his antisemitism/white supremacy — EVER again.

  39. mf13ss says:


    Sucks that you may have been hacked and I’d noticed you missing for several days… figured you were with family enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    I was missing for several days due to being sick: confirmed today I’ve got strep throat. I should have gone to the doc yesterday, but yeah, I’ve had it for the better part of a week.

    Also noticed that our guy down under uwantwat has been sick. Hope he’s doing better.

    Mike E. says:
    November 29, 2022 at 8:05 pm
    I think it goes way beyond turtle. The GOP’s anti abortion stance blew right back in their face.
    Interesting take, and I respect that, Mike E. Now then… who the fuck leaked it to the media?

    It was the first time in the long history of the SCOTUS that something got leaked, and thus pushed up. S/he (the leaker) has yet to be identified, and it REEKS of BS, my Brother.

    This should be one of the very first acts (of MANY!) in the House once under Rep control: who dunnit? My fingers point to Justice Roberts and the Turtle, but that’s JMO.

    • Mike E. says:

      Leaked what M? The conservatives on the SCOTUS overturned Roe v Wade. Once that happened, the Democrats just ran with the agenda that all GOP candidates were also anti abortion (many are, some aren’t) and just like the GOP tried to make the Dems look weak on crime, they preyed on women’s rights and the GOP’s desire to strip women of their rights and ban abortion. SCOTUS started the whole thing rolling an enabled the left to use it as a scare tactic. It worked!

      • mf13ss says:

        SCOTUS had a ‘leaker’, who put the agenda on the table and essentially on the ballot in an election year.

        I don’t disagree with anything you’re saying, but for the LEAK that forced the hand of SCOTUS prematurely regarding Roe. That leaker could ‘potentially’ get the death sentence for treachery, but we know that won’t ever happen.

      • mf13ss says:

        I just so happen to believe the LEAK came from the right side of the aisle… makes sense.

  43. Rockphin says:

    That sucks. I didn’t want to wait until 4:05. Now I have to wait until 8:25. I like my games om Sunday, at 1pm.

    JUST GOT an early Christmas gift from Mrs. OD: AN OFFICIAL Tua Tagoviola jersey from NFL.COM. –They were selling them for one day only for $97!! It’s white with teal letters. I’ll wear it during the Fins @ ’49ers game as we watch it on TV.

    MY THANKS to whoever can get my pick on Howie’s List.
    Lightning and Bruins tied 1-1 going into the 3rd period at the TD Garden in BAWSTUN! — The Bruins are a perfect 12-0 at home this season!! Currently the Bolts are 13-7-1 while the Bruins are a gawdy 18-3-0.

    Love what it means for our franchise that our game got flexed. And hopefully this means the Bills game doesn’t get flexed to the evening game the following week. It’ll be a few degrees warmer if it remains a day game.

  53. ukfinfan says:

    Memo to NFL re flexing:

    Roger, please leave scheduling alone and stick to 1pm games for the fins, when it’s warmer for the team and better for UK to watch. A 4:25pm Sunday game doesn’t finish til half past midnight here, which is bad enough already with school the next day, but starting games at 1:20am local time is just plain idiotic. If you move the Buffalo game to Saturday I will personally get on a plane to the US, hunt you down and fecking kill you (in best Liam Neeson voice) cos I’m out with my g/f and her fam for a surprise party that night so I won’t even get to see the game. Just leave the feck alone.

  54. Ken says:

    I would be surprised if we are flexed Sundays in a row

  55. Krishna says:

    While I think the next 3 games on the road are critical to our playoff hopes and position, I don’t seem doom or gloom over the loss of Armstead.

    The “disaster” on offense after Armstead left the game was on MM and he took 100% responsibility….

    He indicated he was too aggressive in his play calling, didn’t course correct as the OL talent level dictated/declined, and was in a first time experience of having a 30 point lead at halftime.

    Our D seemed better all around, but it was the Texans, so there’s that. Our young pups are biting, our free agents are paying dividends, and we seem (hopefully) to be gaining momentum on the D side of the ball.

    Scheme and play calling should neutralize the dreaded SF D, in my opinion. I believe MM knows his opponent better than his opponent knows the MM Dolphins.

    • steveccnv says:

      MM taking the blame means nothing to me, Armstead is very important to the running game too, without him we may be too 1-dimensional

      • Krishna says:

        Lol…I know it doesn’t mean anything to you and I disagree….lol

      • steveccnv says:

        He’s just taking the heat off of his players, but the fact remains, we aren’t nearly as good without Armstead

        MM can’t just say the O sucked in 2nd half because of his play calling, then going forward all is well, because he’ll call better plays with better blocking schemes

      • Krishna says:

        As he should…he’s the coach calling the plays….lol. He knows or should know his players, preparedness, and what’s best for the team. And, he admitted he fucked up. Did you see the game? I agree he fucked up…lol

    Anyone up for meeting me at slatterys for the Game this weekend – don’t know if it helps that is a 4pm game

    • Rockphin says:

      Two in a row. MAYBE. Next week got flexed. The Bills game is still TBD and the Packers the week after is a 1pm game.

    More verification of the disfunction during the Flores years.

    “At the time I thought that was the best decision for me,” Lawson said. “Looking back…I’d probably say that’s probably the worst decision I made.”

    “It was a humbling two years,” Lawson continued. “This year I consider a humbling year for me trying to get my career back. …If you would have seen me [in Miami then New York] you’d be like ‘This is Shaq?’ I’m quiet. I’m not talking. I’m just strictly about ball. Not joking and things like that. And that’s not me. I like to have fun, like to joke. I still take the game serious, but me I got to be interacting and cracking jokes. So that was my biggest part. I couldn’t be myself.”

      I think Flores is secretly coaching in Denver, seriously though their coach is as bad as it gets, he’ll be fired at EOS and they’ll hire a real HC

    Coach says if Armstead is able to play he will. Says he does not expect Austin Jackson to play Sunday.
    Travis Wingfield
    Replying to
    Cool answer about Waddle’s reception of the Tyreek Hill acquisition and the target sacrifice that comes with that.

    “It’s very transparent that he’s a team-oriented guy that wants to make plays for the right reasons, which is: he really thrives in making plays for his teammates.”
    Travis Wingfield
    Replying to
    On Mostert’s availability: I think he could’ve played (vs. Houston) and if we had adhered to his hopes and desires he might’ve played last week. It was too risky to what he means to the team. He should be ready to go this week.
    Travis Wingfield
    Replying to
    No surgery for Armstead, Coach says. “I guess you’d say it’s game-to-game…I can tell by his spirit that he thinks there’s a legitimate chance not to count him out (for Sunday) for sure.”

    From the article:

    Dolphins-Chargers was not the first choice of NBC for the broadcast, according to a report. Instead, the company was looking to add the Buffalo Bills at New York Jets game in the primetime position, according to SNY TV’s Connor Hughes.

    The Dolphins-Chargers game was ultimately moved because CBS blocked the Bills-Jets matchup, preferring to keep the AFC East division showdown on their broadcast schedule.

    SMH at that NE bias. Dolphins/ Chargers- Tua/ Herbert is easily the more exciting game. I wish we could decline and leave those assholes with Chiefs/ Broncos.
