I’m going to start with the negatives, and then have a happy ending later on with the positives.   Not the Robert Kraft happy endings either. First was Jaylen Waddle. I don’t mind the pick, as this kid seems to be highly touted.  No doubts about his abilities or speed.  The “negatives” surrounding him aren’t really his fault at all, as he doesn’t have many weaknesses in his game.  Rather, the Dolphins blew this. Chris Grier gambled, overspent, and lost badly.  How, you ask? By almost all consensus, Waddle would have been there at #12 if we stayed put after the 49er deal.  We went fromRead More →

I’ll have a chat room open tonight if anyone wants to join in and gab.   Just go to http://dolphinstruth.com/chat/ round 8 pm Eastern I might update this to a Zoom meeting instead if I can figure that out in time, but my wife may need our video camera for her work, so I don’t know if Zoom will work out. I’ve been reading all the “final” mock drafts, and no real surprises here.  Read More →

The Dolphins basically gave Ereck Flowers to the Redskins in what can only be described as a cost-cutting move. The Dolphins continue to believe that a handful of new offensive linemen and zero continuity year after year after year is a good idea.  It’s an annual merry-go-round on the line.  After letting our most consistent lineman–center Ted Karras–walk away to the Patriots, the Dolphins now get nothing in return for our 2nd best lineman, guard Flowers. Versatile backup Julien Davenport was also sent packing, along with one-and-done tackle Isaiah Wilson. It might be a sign that we are making roster space for Penei Sewell.   Or itRead More →

Not a lot of draft news or rumors circulating around…except more of the same.   Pretty much everyone thinks that WR is the Dolphins’ main need, and virtually all “experts” have us taking LSU’s Chase at #4.  As you all know, I hope we choose defense instead, but I understand the offense get use some help too. As I’ve said, I don’t remember Tua throwing the ball to wide open WRs last year, and they all dropped the ball.  No, our WRs were fine.  Our kid QB no time to throw all season, and that was the problem.  Fitz didn’t have any time either, but veteransRead More →

Sam Darnold is out as Jets quarterback, in a move that was expected some time ago…but Jets’ management did a good job of playing it coy and not really revealing their plans.  Darnold has been a gift to the Dolphins, and he became as bad as Josh Allen became good.   Opposite paths for these two young men. So the draft just got a bit clearer.  The Jets MUST select a QB now.  There was some talk of them taking a non-QB if they kept Darnold.  But that is a non-issue now. I am against the Dolphins taking a WR with the #6 pick.  I’m evenRead More →
