Okay, so the chat function is sucky as always, but let’s use the comments field below to talk while the Draft is going on. On the clock…some unlucky kid is going to Cleveland to blow out his knees.Read More →

Since we’re in yet another discussion about the merits of Tannehill, or lack thereof, I thought I’d give this argument its own forum. I still say his weakness is in reading a pass rush and avoiding the defenders who are coming right at him.   The intangible weakness is a lack of leadership and a lack of fire.   I want to see RYAN TANNEHILL screaming at his men to fire them up, not Jarvis Landry and Marqueis Gray.  If you think about the players with the hearts and souls of Dolphins, you think Landry, Cameron Wake, Reshad Jones.   I cannot add Tannehill on theRead More →

Well, the schedule is out, and as I’ve been saying, the NFL goes out of its way to help the more popular teams while doing nothing positive for the also rans.  And the Dolphins have been also rans lately. Early in the season, when the Miami weather is at its hottest and most humid and gives the Dolphins the biggest advantage over the opponents, we only get one game.   And that is against the Buccaneers, who play in the only city more hot and muggy than Miami.  The Dolphins have no weather advantage over Tampa Bay. Then comes a string of 3 LONG roadRead More →

As I predicted, the NFL has forced Miami to go on the road for its Thursday Night Game.  That means the Dolphins will get two days of rest before having to travel.  New year, same nonsense.  To make matters worse, the opponent is Baltimore, who pretty much owns us. We already know that the London game is week 4, depriving us of a home game.  Thanks a lot, Stephen Ross. It appears the Dolphins bye week will NOT come after the London trip. Looks like we close the season on December 31, with a home game vs. the Bills.  I don’t like the how leagueRead More →

One-time dolphin foe Aaron Hernandez is dead.   The prison says it was suicide.   His lawyers say No Way! Seems like a cowardly way to go out, if it were suicide.   But it smells fishy, given how combative and violent he was.  The Dolphins have had their share of violent and non-violent felons too, from Mercury Morris to Cecil Collins to Lawrence Phillips.   What makes millionaires turn so silly? Your thoughts? Meanwhile, the Patriot have signed former Dolphins RB Mike Gillislee, although the Bills still have the right to match the offer.   I was really high on Gillislee when we hadRead More →

Not to be outdone by Stephen Ross allowing Joe Philbin to allow Mike Sherman to hire Sherman’s own son-in-law, who had no coaching experience, today Ross allowed Adam Gase to hire Gase’s own father-in-law as a special Dolphins consultant. Joe Vitt is a journeyman coach with a losing record when he had a few stints as an interim head coach.  That part makes you scratch your head about what he has to offer. However, he does own a Super Bowl ring for being an assistant linebacker coach for the Saints when they won their Super Bowl.   I don’t give Vitt any credit for theRead More →

Well, in piecing a few things together, I know the NFL always releases its schedule on a Thursday evening in late April. It doesn’t appear to be tonight.  And it can’t be two weeks from now, because that is the draft.   So it has to be next Thursday, April 20.   Now this could change.   The NFL is notorious for giving very very little notice of its schedule releases, so it still could be tonight at 8 pm.    But that is getting more and more doubtful. As I’ve been reporting this month, the NFL seems to be clueless about how important this releaseRead More →

As I’ve pointed our before, the NFL is missing a golden opportunity to create some buzz, if only they would release the 2017 schedule. Instead, we plod along with nothing to talk about except the 15,000 different mock drafts that are out there. Oh, and as reader Sean pointed out, Kenny Stills did an arm-wrestling tournament in Vegas that was against the NFL’s gambling protocol.  Expect a minor fine to be forthcoming. In other news, LeSean McCoy of the Bills called Kiko Alonso a bum.   I can just picture the Patriots sitting back with their rings and watching this nonsense unfold. Man!   It’sRead More →

The Dolphins are so desperate for defensive backs that today they signed a guy who can’t even play for them. Safety T.J. McDonald is suspended already, and he cannot play until at least Week 8, assuming that he passes all drug tests and assuming that the NFL approves of his formal reinstatement request. Of course, Dion Jordan was in the exact same situation before, where all he had to do was stay clean and serve a three-game suspension.  However, during his suspension, he got suspended again for using drugs again.  I won’t be naive again.  You see, I used to think that it would beRead More →

Personally, I think April is a good month to hold the draft.   The Super Bowl was a couple of months ago, and it takes a few months for the 2016 memories to fade into the 2017 anticipation.   Except for the Atlanta Falcons, who I hope never ever forget how much the world hates them for handing a free Super Bowl to the Patriots. So an April draft makes sense.   Releasing the NFL schedule in April, however, is a horrible and unfair idea.   It should be released the day after the Super Bowl.   I comment on this every year, and IRead More →

I was glad to see the Dolphins active in the trade and free agent market yesterday.   Glad we kept a few of our own.   Not too worried about the ones who may be leaving. Some new faces include Julius Thomas and William Hayes. Some old faces include Reshad Jones and Kenny Stills. A new face that is sort of old too:  Anthony Fasano. What do you guys think of these moves?Read More →

Reader Rick James had a great idea to start an in-depth draft discussion. Brian proposed these names below.   Let’s discuss 1 – Reuben Foster 2 – Jarrad Davis 3 – Zach Cunningham 4 – Cody Whitehair 5 – Vadal Alexander 6 – Jalen Tabo 7 – Dan Feeney 8 – Montae Nicholson 9 – Pat Mahomes in the 3rd if he is still there but I doubt he will be 10 – Tanoh Kpassagnon this kid is a beast at 6 – 6 and a 3rd round steal if hes thereRead More →

Another week, another venture for Stephen Ross that doesn’t help the Dolphins.   Add this to the long list of distractions that Ross involves himself in, rather than concentrating on the Miami Dolphins. While most other NFL owners are actively participating and attending the scouting combines in Indianapolis, overseeing their scouting departments and meeting daily with their personnel departments, Ross instead is home. Home, by the way, is not Miami.   Ross is a Jet fan who lives in New York City.  His businesses are there.  And many of his non-Dolphins adventures are held there. This time around, Ross is conducting business lessons for NFLRead More →

Mike Pouncey is being sued over a fight at his birthday party.  The trial commences next week. It stems from a 2014 altercation in which a couple of guys claim that Pouncey and his brother beat them up. Pouncey faces no jail time, but the civil case could hurt him in the wallet.  If only his hip were injured before this incident, then he never would have been able to go out partying.  But no, Pouncey’s gimp hip only acts up when it’s time to play football.  Read More →

In a move that has me shaking my head, the Dolphins today cut tackle Branden Albert. While Laremy Tunsil shows a lot of promise and will undoubtedly move to left tackle (he played left guard last year), it’s uncertain how he will handle the adjustment.   More important, however, is this creates yet another offensive line combination for Ryan Tannehill to get used to. I don’t blame the offensive line for all of Tannehill’s troubles in the last few years, but it certainly never helped him to have a new lineman in the rotation every other week.   I imagine they plan to use KraigRead More →

Reader Sean sent us a photo of himself with the enemy, Defensive Coordinator of the Patriots, Matt Patricia. Actually, he looks polite and personable and not really the enemy on this day. It’s baffling how this true genius gets no head coaching offers, but idiots like Kyle Shanahan, who hands free victories to the opponent, is hired.  Baffling. Anyway, Sean, please send us your comments about how you met him this day and the details !   Great photo. Hey, guys.   Here is Sean’s story…. My wife and I were staying at the Contemporary Resort at Disney- a trip we planned months ago. AsRead More →
