Miami Dolphins 2023 Schedule

So now our schedule is out, and as we can see, it won’t be an easy one. We start off the season with back to back road games, the first against the Los Angeles Chargers who were 10-7 last season and narrowly lost to the upstart Jacksonville Jaguars in their playoff game, 31-30. Then off to play our division foe the New England Patriots. We come home to face the Denver Broncos, who were a huge disappointment last season, but you have to think Russell Wilson will bounce back from an awful season with the Broncos. Then we travel to Orchard Park NY to play our nemesis Buffalo Bills. We did finally beat the Bills 21-19 early last season, but then lost the next 2 clashes, including a closely fought playoff matchup with our 3rd string QB Skylar Thompson at the helm 34-31. None of the 3 games between the Dolphins and Bills were decided by more than 3 points. I feel like we have improved our team, it’s not going to be any easier for them.

Our next home game is October 8th when we host the NY Giants. The Giants made the playoffs last year and upset the Minnesota Vikings in their house 31-24, but then got wiped playing in Philadelphia against the SB participant Philadelphia Eagles 38-7. The Giants will struggle some with the heat early in the season in Miami. We then host the Carolina Panthers, and possibly may face the #1 draft pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, QB Bryce Young. We then face off against the NFC’s Suberbowl representative Philadelphia Eagles on October 22nd at Lincoln Financial field. Like I said, tough schedule.

After the Eagles on the road, we come home to play our division rivals for the 2nd time of the season, the New England Patriots on Sunday October 29th. Despite the fact the Patriots looked pretty bad last season, they finished only one game behind us last season. The Patriots drafted one of the best DB’s in this year’s draft, CB Christian Gonzalez. They’ll need all the help they can get! After hosting the patriots we leave the USA to play an international game and Prime Time Matchup against the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs in Frankfurt, Germany. At long last, after the arduous task of traveling out of the country to face the SB Champs, we get our much needed BYE Week in Week 10.

We come out of the BYE Week to host the Las Vegas Raiders, potentially led by former 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo. The Raiders jettisoned Derek Carr and bring in a similarly talented QB, albeit one with a history of injured seasons. We’ll see how that works out. We then travel to New Jersey to play the NY Jets in another Prime Time Matchup, this one a FRIDAY game at MetLife Stadium. We hit the road again to then face the next to last of our NFC East foes, the Washington Commanders. The Commanders nabbed 2 DB’s in the 2023 NFL Draft, back to back, snaring M’s fave Emmanuel Forbes at #16, and then another CB, Jartaviue Martin 31 picks later. They will have a tough task covering against our offense.

We come for a Monday Night Football matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Will we face our old pal Ryan Tannehill, or will the Titans give the reins to rookie draftee Will Levis, who languished at the draft the entire first round surrounded by beautiful women. My heart breaks for the kid, really. The Jets come to visit us to play the rubber match between us just 3 weeks later from our last matchup. We then host our 3rd home game in a row, and the final NFC East opponent, the Dallas Cowboys.

The last 2 games of our 2023 schedule begin on the road again to face the Baltimore Ravens. Why do we seem to play them every season? Nevermore, nevermore, nevermore. Last season’s game was an absolute thriller though, with QB Tua Tagovailoa finishing off one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history, erasing a 21 point 4th QTR deficit to beat the Ravens 42-38. Our regular season finale will be us hosting the Buffalo Bills. As previously stated, we played the Bills very tough last season, even without our 1st or 2nd string QB.My hope is that we close the gap even more this year, and overtake the Bills. I also hope we face both the Ravens and Bills with our #1 QB, Tua Tagovailoa, completing his first 17 game season. Nothing against newly acquired backup Mike White, but I don’t want to see him in a game this season unless we pull Tua because we have a 30 point lead in the 4th QTR. We need our guy to be healthy, and of course the entire team to stay healthy, especially #72, LT Terron Armstead.

Fest deliberations are most likely underway, votes are being tabulated. This could potentially be the biggest Fest ever, I hope we get lots of people to make it this year. Our team is on the precipice of greatness, we’re close. It’s not easy to make that next step into the elite, but with McDaniel and Fangio, I feel like it’s going to happen. I felt like our defense was better than it played, and I still contend that Zero Coverage Blitz scheme wasn’t viable with the cast of characters we had in place. Fangio is not an all or nothing guy like Josh Boyer was. Fangio is more malleable, flexible in his approach, and he’s the opposite of Boyer, he adapts to who we’re playing and who he has to employ against them. Can’t wait for the season, and of course the Fest!

    HEY Mr. Spikes!! IF it comes down to a choice of SHELL or DALVIN COOK, I say we need MUCH more help on the O-Line than we do at RB.

    UNFORTUNATELY, Ross’s FO has, in the past, been instructed to “sign the guy who will sell the most tickets” instead of “sign the guy who fills the greatest need.”

    Maybe coach McDaniel can influence the boss to pursue Shell. Sadly, Ross has yet to learn this basic fact; “A CHAMPIONSHIP CONTENDER TEAM SELLS THE MOST TICKETS!!!!!”

    • mf13ss says:

      I’m right there with ya, Mr. Campbell! Signing Brandon Shell with our current stable of RBs will be able to RUN on opposing Defenses.

  2. pheloniusphish says:

    No one has signed Shell.

    • mf13ss says:

      Makes one wonder if he’s doing the vet thing, as you’d suggested the other day… so as to avoid mini-camps (wise on your part to suggest as much).

      Another possibility? Perhaps we have a ‘wink and a handshake’ agreement with him to come back to Miami.

      I dunno, man. I just hope we re-sign him. He was very good for us last season.

    Wilson is the closest thing we have to a grinder who will make the roster.
    100% agreed, as usual. I just wish we had a ‘HAMMER’ in short yardage sits. We can get that out of Alec Ingold… when he’s not the lead blocker as a FB. Thus, our O-Line had better be better than in previous years to utilize Ingold as a short-sit RB. JMO

  4. mf13ss says:

    It happens every year: teams with new GMs and/or HCs implement a new system. As such, there will be surprise veteran cuts from nearly every team in the league… and not all happen as of June 1st.

  5. randydolfan1947 says:

    IT’s ON TO SUDDEN DEATH TIME IN RALEIGH!! The Panthers and Hurricanes are tied at 1-1 at the end of regulation. This game is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO CAROLINA!! Rarely has an NHL team lost the first TWO games at home and come back to win a best of 7 playoff series!!

    MEANWHILE, THE PANTHERS SEIZED the home ice advantage by winning a four overtime classic in Game 1 two night’s ago. A win tonight by FLORIDA would mean the Canes would have to win 4 of the remaining 5 games left in this series, 3 of which will be played in SUNRISE, A SUBURB OF FT. LAUDERDALE.

    THE PANTHERS HAVE WON SEVEN STRAIGHT ROAD GAMES in the 2023 playoffs. I’d be CRAZY to pick against them now!

    ONE MORE GOAL TONIGHT will give Florida a choke hold on this playoff series. I expect them to DO JUST THAT, even if it takes 4 more periods of overtime hockey!!

  6. pheloniusphish says:

    Panthers win!

  7. randydolfan1947 says:

    IT’s OVER IN RALEIGH!! NO four overtime periods tonight!! TKACHUK scores at 1:51 of the first OT on a picture perfect designed play that was PERFECTLY EXECUTED! – – – and speaking of “EXECUTED,” THE hURRICANE’S PLAYOFF HOPES are now on life support!!

    About 3 weeks ago, the Panthers were struggling to get the last playoff spot. Somehow, they succeeded. Their reward was a trip to Boston to play the heavily favored BRUINS, who’d just been declared “The greatest team in NHL history when they set the record for most wins in an NHL season.

    Improbably, the Panthers prevailed in games 6 and 7 to advance to the next round. They made quick work of the Toronto Maple Leafs who, like the Bruins, were favored to eliminate this pesky FLORIDA team.

    BUT the Las Vegas odds-makers weren’t buying it. They made the Carolina Hurricanes the favorites to defeat the Panthers, partly because the Canes had home ice advantage for games 1 and 2.

    Well the Panthers took care of that, didn’t they?? And the favored Canes, like the Bruins and Maple Leafs before them, find themselves on the short end of a series against this team that just tied an all-time NHL playoff record with their 8th straight road victory!

    Go Panthers!

  9. bailbondmike says:

    M13, have you ever listened to Hi-Rez?

    Some don’t like rap but he is another one you hear the lyrics and has good messaging. Unfortunately, he is also another one you won’t hear his messaging on the radio for several reasons.

    Since people were talking politics yesterday:

  10. bailbondmike says:

    Not sure if I posted this before but it’s funny and the sad truth at the same time.

  11. bailbondmike says:

    I’ve always like Jimmy Levy’s singing voice.

  12. bailbondmike says:

    Closer to a Sunday theme.

  13. bailbondmike says:

    Last one. Jimmy Levy by himself. Like his control and nothing over the top.

  14. Rockphin says:

    I hesitate to say this because it is actually too early in both cases, but I hope the Dolphins season is successful as the Heat’s and Panthers this year.

  15. Rockphin says:

    second round of the playoffs is pretty good though, and I would take it with minimal bitching.

  16. naplesfan2010 says:

    I agree with Rock.
    It’s really our turn to enjoy some success. Our fanbase has been loyal, we’ve endured more than our share of turmoil and dysfunction, and now we have a new coach we can all root for. And even the national media can root for the guy.

    Our current players have excellent camaraderie (as far as we know), and they seem to work hard and love football.
    This roster is stacked as we have undeniable talent throughout our roster.

    The FO has done a pretty good job of getting the players that are right for our system with a blend of youth and veteran talent.
    I even feel like we are due for catching a break, some sort of lucky bounce going our way.
    I also think we are built to be good for several years now, unlike some of the other good teams.
    Go Dolphins.

    Seat draft tmrw. Waiting for Son and Krishna with plus numbers and Toba about +1 or +3. Anyone else want in? Seemed Randy was checking out but didn’t give the “I’m coming man.”

    FEST – Oct 15 @ 1 pm against the Panthers.

    D&Bs get together Sat eve. Tunes with the Dog up to the dog, but a bunch of people will be getting in Fri regardless. And yeah we’ll have a tailgate.

    I didn’t even really ask but the reservations came flooding in (and thanks for that). Seat draft is next Monday (they’ve really tightened up the time frame…. used to have like 3-4 weeks). But need to pony up a number then. Remember nothing is set in stone. Better to order too many seats than too few (this time of year at least).


    Mike E (+4)
    Toba (+1 or +3)
    Krishna (+?)
    Son (+?)
    Phelon (with the crew))
    Cav (+1)
    Chef Wa (+1)
    Twice (+1)
    Dog (+2)

    Just 2 at the moment Stanger… thank you.

  19. steveccnv says:

    What’s really going on with these woke companies

  20. randydolfan1947 says:

    The Vegas Golden Knight’s quick overtime win today certainly increases the chances of a VGK-Florida Panthers Stanley Cup Finals. But it’s not quite a done deal yet. More work to be done.

    That said, I’d be just fine if the Sunshine State landed another Stanley Cup Trophy!

    • randydolfan1947 says:

      YOUNG STANGER; Thanks, again, for all you do for the Fest. It’s amazing! With both me and my wife currently on the “Disabled List,” it’s not likely either of us will be travelling to any football games this season. But I’m certainly NOT ruling out future Fests, especially after I retire and we move back into our home in West Palm Beach.

      Right now, though, I am still focused on earning a living and helping out my wife. Better health WILL get both of us back to the stadium.

  21. son of a son of a shula says:

    Stanger, I’m plus six if doable or as many of that as you can handle. 👍

  22. stangerx says:

    Waiting on Krishna for the pluses and Rand for if he is coming. Plus anyone else who wants to show up.

    Never heard of Hi-Rez before today. GOOD MESSAGING is right, and thank you for sharing, my guy!

    • mf13ss says:

      There’s not much of modern-day ‘rap’ that I like, save for some good messaging… and for that very reason, I like Hi-Rez… along with several others you’ve posted over the years, BB Mike. You’ve got a good ear!

      Most of today are far too monotone in their delivery, the beats are so simplistic with no chords or R&B chorus, and most generally lack ‘soul’ (musically)… and that’s how I know I’m getting older, LOL 😀 Yet there is so much talent out there that cannot be denied.

      PLEASE CONTINUE to post the positive messaging when ya hear it, man. I appreciate it each and every time, knowing that there’s still hope out there in the genre. Realize that I appreciate it each and every time you post one!

  24. mf13ss says:

    BB Mike,

    Some old school…

    Ice Cube just stated the other day that blacks need to stop voting for democrats… and now the democrats are going after him for being an ‘Uncle Tom’. SMMFH 😡

    Circa 1995 (the video caption got it wrong with 1994), Ice Cube with my man Scarface (I sound somewhat similar to Scarface when on the mic, BTW). You’d swear they took a certain Delorian to the future 2023 and read the Durham Report that dropped last week.

    Biden was in on the segregation instilled by the KKK… just would have LOVED if they name-dropped him! But just wait for Ice Cube’s last line… “so FUCK Bill and Hillary, Ice Cube, there ain’t no killin’ me!” 😀

    • mf13ss says:

      It’s almost as though they were predicting what would happen to Donald Trump if elected president.

      • Tim Knight says:

        There is no doubt once Trump was a legit candidate the left labeled him a racist and white supremacist, even though many of them associated with him for years. But then the arrogant “Donald” continued to be as such and not a leader of the entire nation. It’s us against them.

        The reason a staunch conservative like Ronald Reagan was a great president is because he resonated with the majority of the country except for the far left. Even moderate Democrats voted for him.

        Trump has lost moderates on both sides. Some simply because they can’t stand him and don’t want another 4 years of the divisive crap that will happen if he was to win. He’s not a good statesman.

        I have no idea what the presidential election will look like in 2024 but please no Trump, Biden or dinosaur from either party.

    • bailbondmike says:

      Going to check it out in the morning. After I got done writing the post below the phones started blowing up. I leave in an hour though. Can’t wait, going on 3 hours sleep from last night.

  25. bailbondmike says:

    It amazes sometimes how people turn out. They could have had the best of being brought up and turn into a POS. They could have had the worst of childhoods and turn out a sweet and wonderful person. It goes the other way also. Makes one wonder.

    I just had a sweet beautiful young woman in here bonding her fiancé out for DUI. Got pulled over leaving the beach. She is an Optometrist and returning to school to be an Ophthalmologist. He had an 8 hour hold as most DUI’s do so she stayed a while and talked. We have an application we maintain on file with family contact information.

    I needed her father’s info. She said, “my dad or my biological father”. I said the one you stay in touch with which was her ex-stepdad.

    The only thing she initially knew about her biological father was from her mother who always called him a crazy, angry psychopath among other words. The only father she knew was the stepdad who took care of her since she was 3. She said she never felt any love from her mother either. Only the stepdad. At age 10 her mother just up and left without notice only to show up 9 months later to get her daughter and divorce the stepdad. A short few months later her mom was arrested for drugs and she ended up in the system, eventually taken away from the mother and ended up in foster care. She bounced around between 3 foster homes. Said she was almost raped at the second one by a foster brother. She was able to track down her ex-stepdad and he fought to get custody of her and finally did get custody with his new wife when she was 14.

    She graduated HS and the stepdad paid for her to go to college. When she turned 20, she told her stepdad she wanted to find her biological parents just so she could get some answers and get closure. She said she had doubts about herself and questioned if she was going to become as crazy as them.

    Didn’t take long to find her mother. Her mother had died of an overdose when she was 18. What hurt was all those years and she never knew she only lived 30 miles away.

    After several months she found her biological dad. He was in prison for murder. She wrote to him and told him who she was and wanted to meet him just once and ask him why he did everything he did. He responded and told her he would contact her when his appeal was all over and said he would tell her anything she wanted to know. She finally got to see him when she turned 22 and graduated from college. Said she was surprised he was a big, tall handsome man. He said he left before she turned 2 because he never wanted to hurt her or her mom. He said he has always had an uncontrollable anger whether he was drinking or not. He would just snap.

    She said him and his neighbor became friends of who he didn’t know was a registered sex offender who liked men and little boys. Told her they were drinking beer and watching MNF and he passed out and woke up with his pants around his ankles being molested. He said he beat him until he almost crushed his skull. Said he contemplated killing himself but instead called the police and waited for them to show up and told them what happened. He was looking at 15 years but then his DNA came up a match for 2 cold case murders in Colorado. He ended up confessing to strangling 2 maids at a motel in Colorado who he accused of stealing money from his room. Told her that he did a couple years here and there where he came close to beating a couple other guys to death also. He is now serving life without a chance of parole.

    She said she told him that she was never going to contact him again and he agreed that would be best.

    Said she cried almost the whole 350 mile drive home, couldn’t get it out of her head that she was going to be as fucked up as her biological parents. After she got home she took a long bath and came to the realization that “I am neither of those people. I am my stepdad.” She said that was her closure. She doesn’t know where or who she would be if it were not for him.

    She started laughing and said she couldn’t believe she just told her whole life story to a stranger. It took her months to be able to tell her fiancé. She apologized and I told her “No!” I told her that her life story was a movie waiting to be made. I told her “Seriously, write a book and pitch a movie.”

    We must have talked about 1 1/2 hours until the BF got released from jail.

    That’s the part of this business that keeps it interesting.

    • mf13ss says:


      I hope that woman gets the peace she needs. So sad to hear what she’s experienced in discovery. 😦

      Yes… we’ve seen the best fail and the worst succeed: life is totally unpredictable and surprising in so many ways.

      Props to you for being a shoulder for her to lean on and trust. Ya never really know anybody’s story unless ya take the time to listen.

    • ukfinfan says:

      Thanks for taking the trouble to type and post all that BBM. Shows how much it affected you and it had the same affect on me reading it.

    Steve – One of the guys we vacation with in the summer is Vivek Ramaswamy’s personal bodyguard and very trusted assistant. Another one of the guys works for him in a financial capacity. He’s a very intelligent guy (Ramaswamy). I’d like to see him in the primaries. He’s pretty young though, only 37, but 37 is better than 73. I think he’ll be a strong candidate at some point, might be a bit too early for him, or maybe his timing is perfect, who knows.

      This scientific proof of climate change contradicts what we’ve been told recently, by AOC and Greta, therefore it has to be BS

    • CavalierKong says:

      LOL, I started reading the actual research paper and got so into it, I lost track of time and was late to work.

      • CavalierKong says:

        This is research that shows past cycles were driven primary by astronomical forces such as the tilt of the Earth’s axis. They focused on the early Pleistocene Epoch from 1.6 to 1.2 million years ago and were able to accurately reproduce those cycles.

        “As geological evidence from older times comes to light, it is becoming clear that the Earth had a different climatic regime than it does today. We must have a different understanding of the role of astronomical forcing in the distant past,”

        As they apply it to predictions about now and future cycles, it’ll be a tool to help show if our current climate change is anthropogenic or part of some new cycle. Of course, no matter which outcome it shows, the other side won’t believe it. At that point it’ll become ‘junk science’ or buried depending on the results.

      • CavalierKong says:

        They do get into CO2 impact during that epoch and call its effect minimal.

      The whole idea of clean energy is silly. There will always be consequences/side effects. More important in my mind is sustainable energy.

      What energy(ies) can we produce that is abundant, cost effective, and easily accessible? Coal and oil have been the answer to that for the majority of the industrial age. I’m not opposed to solar, wind, and nuclear, if we can make them viable replacements. I’m ok with continuing to advance those technologies. But you can’t fit square pegs into round holes. If the tech and infrastructure isn’t there, it isn’t there. Tell me what the CA power grid is going to look like when we’re all supposedly going to be driving electric cars by 2032.

      • CavalierKong says:

        *industrial age and forward

      • steveccnv says:

        CA power grid will be more of a mess, than the mess it’s now

        These people are evil, they keep giving hints of what they want to do, but some can’t see what’s right in front of them, think there’s a term for that

        They know they won’t be able to supply power for 50% electric cars, so what are they going to do?

        The same thing they’re already doing in CA, restricting when you can charge your car and use high electricity, like AC, in general at peak hours

      • steveccnv says:

        If they wanted clean energy they’d use nuclear, but that doesn’t fit the agenda

      • CavalierKong says:

        I think there are legitimate concerns about the safety of nuclear and the disposal of waste. But if we’re able to protect our military installations , we should be able to protect nuclear power plants if we gave them that level of security.

        I remember the nuclear plant Rancho Seco in the 80’s not too far from Sacto and the concerns my grandparents had about it being in our backyard. There was some sort of cooling issue at the plant and it ended up getting shut down. Public perception of nuclear is a big problem.

    I have my doubts, that an aging 39 yr old QB, can just seamlessly make the change

      Until we have something that actually works and destroys less environment – Yes!

        The answer is NO!

        and coal mining which everyone seems to leap to protect is just as ugly and damaging to the environment.

        You are just politically attached to one and “with your own judgement” (LOL) have determined that the other is bad.

        Mine works effectively and efficiently. Yours does not. When yours does, great, we can all switch over.

        Phosphate mining looks about the same. Mosaic out of Minnesota is the 7th largest landowner in Florida. They primarily use the land for mining phosphate.

  33. Rockphin says:

    From USA today:

    Winnable stretch following the bye week

    The Dolphins have a Week 10 bye after playing the Chiefs in Germany. At this point, the Dolphins will have been battle tested and fans will know if they’ve made the anticipated leap. The second half of the schedule doesn’t look nearly as threatening.

    The first five opponents following the bye week had below .500 records a season ago. This is a stretch that could propel the Dolphins to the top of the AFC. If Miami can enter the bye week with two or fewer losses, there’s a strong chance they’ll be competing for home-field advantage in the AFC.

    I LOVE “there’s a strong chance they’ll be competing for home-field advantage in the AFC.”

    NOW THE GREAT NEWS. Sergei Bobrovsky, the Panthers goalie, has saved 98 of the last 99 shots he’s faced in this series!! Carolina MUST find a way to get a shot by him in the 3rd period! Otherwise, the Panthers will go up 3-0 in this best of 7 series.

    Pretty sure there’s only been 5 or 6 ice ages over the 4-5 B year “life” of the planet and home sapiens only the last 1 or 2 ice ages. No way ice ages happen every 10K years…lol.
    Yes, the frequency is every 10 thousand years. The severity and length of the age varies. Some are known as ‘mini ice ages’ whereas some are major. It’s all cyclical, just like the Earth heating up. It’s like a pendulum.

    • CavalierKong says:

      Scientists generally agree there have been 5 or 6 ice ages which can last millions of years. The ice age we are currently in has been over 2.5 million years long.

      There glacial periods within an ice age (times when temps are colder) which last between 75-90 thousand years. And there are interglacial periods (warming times within an ice age) that are typically between 10-15 thousand years.

      I think you are talking about glacial periods, because they are often referred to as mini-ice ages, but you are getting your time frames mixed with interglacial periods.

      We’re currently in an interglacial period that has been over 10 thousand years long.

      • CavalierKong says:

        Actually, you are getting the time frame correct as the time between ‘mini ice ages’ is typically 10-15 thousand years.

      • CavalierKong says:

        But they don’t occur every 10k years

      • pheloniusphish says:

        Sooooo….I should buy Mukluks and long skivvies soon?

      • CavalierKong says:

        lol, yep, according to the generally accepted science and what we know about climate change, we should be entering a glacial period and the Earth should be cooling anytime now.

      • CavalierKong says:

        Give or take a thousand years, lol.

    • steveccnv says:

      What they don’t tell you is in-between these cycles of ice ages are short periods of heating/cooling, that don’t relate to the regular or average heating/cooling

      In other words it takes thousands or millions of years to go into or out of an ice age, but the temperature change up or down during the period will fluctuate

      The current frequency of rising temps is normal

      • CavalierKong says:

        Are you talking about glacial and interglacial periods? That is what temperature fluctuations within an actual ice age are called and again, that is very common knowledge. I showed a 3rd grader on a website getting an answer yesterday that included that info.

        Or are you talking about temperature fluctuations within those periods? (If so, not sure why you referenced it taking thousands or millions of years to go into or out of an ice age, because now you’re jumping time frames)

        If you are talking about temperature fluctuations within an glacial/interglacial period, temperature increase at this rate isn’t normal based on the exact science you were just touting yesterday as proof AOC and whoever was lying. It takes time for those changes to occur. Do you only believe in that science if it proves what you believe?

    Here is what I believe about climate change. Nearly all climate change scientists believe in the science that was perfectly modeled, from Phelon’s post yesterday, regarding the major movers in past climate change regarding eccentricity, obliquity, and precession. They also believe our current epoch, the Holocene, is in the last 75 years seeing a rapid change in temperatures that goes way outside the norm. I’ll go with the majority of scientists.

    Is it possible these changes are naturally occurring? Sure, there are some scientific studies that point that direction, but the overwhelming majority of scientific studies point us in a direction that says it isn’t. Are the outlying scientists right, and the vast majority across multiple fields wrong? Again, possible. Are scientists all over the world part of a cabal to make money, so they mislead us? It’s possible some have bogus studies, but the extreme majority? I guess anything is possible.

    • steveccnv says:

      the overwhelming majority of scientific studies…oh please spare me

      I knew one of these scientists, thru a former co-worker (his brother in law), we played golf together a couple of times, here’s what he had to say

      Scientists get funding for their research, and those that pay them want a certain result, so they basically tell them what they want to hear

      There’s no proof climate change is affected by man, he said

      • CavalierKong says:

        Ah yes, the ‘ol “I knew a guy” argument. Fantastic debate point.

        Yet, you were so quick to use the science Phel posted yesterday to espouse your belief because you erroneously thought it backed your view.

        Look, I cover this above. It’s not a few scientists, or a lot of scientists. It’s the vast majority, and across multiple fields. I know quite a few people in the field of climate change, and they say it’s clear and obvious our current warming trend is influenced by man. Do I win now? 🙄

        Are some studies bogus? Sure, that’s entirely possible, probably even. But the number of people and studies that point to climate change being man made are too numerous to count, across different countries, ethnicities, nationalities, however you want to categorize it.

        It doesn’t mean they are categorically right and anything else is categorically wrong. Outlying beliefs in the scientific community have been right over the majority plenty of times in the past. But barring some breakthrough in proof, I’ll go with the current scientific belief.

      • CavalierKong says:

        This idea that so many scientists would falsify or doctor their findings is absurd. Believe it or not, there are a lot of ethical people out there, even in the scientific community. It’s a spectrum of humans, good bad, ethical, unethical, just like anywhere else.

    Dolphins OTA May 23 takeaways:

    Impressive start for the defense, particularly in the communication/rotation aspect of the coverage. We saw plenty of checkdowns as they were capping, doubling, mixing things up and ultimately providing excellent coverage.

    I had Phillips with two sacks, Ogbah and Raekwon had one apiece. Chubb was impactful, too. The entire front is present and they look in midseason form. No Terron or Connor on the OL.

    Phillips picked up where he left off in 22. Unreal first step, bend, close speed – total package
    Travis Wingfield
    Cam Smith and De’Von Achane👍

    Lost count of Achane’s explosives: runs and pass (one off a great Saubert block, another deep ball from Tua).

    Smith’s first rep was a beautiful match and drive back down the stem for the PBU. His length pops. He also had a nice press W against 17.
    Travis Wingfield
    Cedric Wilson and Erik Ezukanma trading some receptions in the intermedia from Tua. He was throwing with nice timing and touch. Wilson had a nice off-frame snag and EE’s easy-glide RAC ability is very apparent.
    Travis Wingfield
    I thought Mike White looked comfortable. Watching him and Tua throw on air in indys was a clinic on timing/placement. During team, both QBs found small windows for some chunk gains.

    Holland did pick off White in 7 on 7: perfect depth, trigger and step in front for INT

    You have got to be kidding me. So in weeks 13-17, they can flex a shitty matchup out of Thursday and move in a good matchup. So, if you’re in the middle of a playoff run, you might find yourself flexed to a short week Thursday game. Even with advanced warning, that is some BS.

    • CavalierKong says:

      It’s a heavy set of conditions that set a high bar for this ever coming to fruition.

    I cannot express just how important it is to have DEPTH on our O-Line. I mean, in the past, we’ve had former 1st rounders and 2nd rounders start for us. But if one of them goes down, we never had a significant 2nd stringer to fill that void.

      Cheers, bro. She’s knows when you just can’t talk to me and tells me to f^ck off. I know when I’m being cantankerous, as Rock put it lol, and disengage accordingly. Then we smoke to show we’re still on the same team. Just another of the numerous reasons I married her 🙂

    Don’t want to talk about it
