Separate names with a comma.
Seems to be the story for quite a few players that leave here.
Whoa, whoa, let's not be quick with the Lamar Jackson slander. Everyone has a bad game every now and again.
Tannehill's a freakin' Chad.
Lamar Jackson is under duress!
....Nice throw, nice route.
Screw Tom Brady!
If the trade makes sense for Burrow, I say pull the trigger.
I beg to differ.
At least you're willing to admit that much.
Oh that's true. And he certainly could've done worse, especially given the circumstance of playing his first playoff game on the road against New...
Definitely wasn't Tannehill's best game. But, he didn't crumble, so props for that.
I just hope it's playoff jitters because he'll need to shake...
Kind of a stretch there, don't you think?
'EY! YOU STOP THAT RIGHT NOW!!!!
So, turns out, DeVante Parker finished 5th in the league in receiving yards and is tied for fourth (albeit with four others) in most TD...
Basically. At the time, a lot of people were saying that he was going to do loads better than Culpepper, and I (and some others) were like...
Heck, I went to bat for Henne, Feeley, and Beck.
I still hang my hat on being right about Trent Green, though.
I lean more towards Burrow than Tua, but I wouldn't mind the latter. But we really do need a QB in this draft.
Dang it, Xavien!
Funny thing was, according to the announcers (who, I must say, did a good job of actually explaining the whole "Tannehill used to be a wide...
Say it with me now....
SCREW THE PATRIOTS!!!
Your lips, God's ears.
I'll never rank Fitz in my top 10, but dang can he be fun to watch.
Never mind. A little to far to the left. Though that may be on Gesicki?
Just a little too far on that throw.
I'm starting to think the NFL is trying to brush this underneath the rug.
Honestly, you should've saw it coming.
IMO, I feel like Brees, Rodgers, and Brady aren't quite playing like themselves (especially Brady), and Tannehill is playing on par with Wilson,...
First two and the last? Sure. Wilson? Maybe. Jackson and Mahomes? I can't agree with that.
....Have you saw what happened in these past two games?
Going by your logic, no one would be talking about Tua if it wasn't for Nick Saban.
If it wasn't for Hurts, Tua wouldn't have two National Championships to his name.
You spelled Jalen Hurts wrong.
"Well, isn't this familiar..."
-Ryan Tannehill, probably.
The Knicks are still ain't crap.
Certainly not an unfounded concern.
I would, if our QB and RB situation improved to a point that they're at least serviceable. Granted, I'd still draft a QB for the future since he's 31.
To add to that, Brandon Marshall was a month or so before Tannehill was drafted.
And responded with the longest TD pass in his NFL career.
....Screw this game.
Not to compare sins, but I'm pretty sure pedophilia is a lot worse than dog fighting.
You love to see it.
Now, I know we won and all, but we gotta talk about the elephant in the room.
I think there's a possible QB controversy. Matt Haack finished the...
I think we can safely assume Devonte Parker is gonna with the Dolphins for a long while.
This aged very well.
An interesting read.
Well, that settles it.
I mean, it's not like the NFL would lie, right?
And the NFL wanted to distribute the footage of the workout and wouldn't allow his team to stream the workout.
The NFL really had the gall...
I'm not defending Myles Garrett. He deserves his punishment. But Rudolph needs to get suspended, too.
To be fair, our QB situation isn't ideal either. I wouldn't mind the singing.
Minkah did what he had to do. He was getting tired of being switched around, and I don't blame him.
No, Galant. It can't be that the diva narrative is being pushed. Why would Florida Sports Writers ever reach this hard for a story?
While Moore isn't a bad QB, I wouldn't even choose Moore over Tannehill in a contest to see who can write their last name quicker.
....Anyone else seeing this Houston vs. Miami game?
2-0 so far.
He's off to a good start so far.
I say we grab a QB, Safety, and a pass rusher.
Correlation doesn't equal causation.
I remember a few years back someone tried to use a list to justify not taking a QB in the first round, and...
You might be right. I can't imagine that Flores, given his coaching history, is cool with what's going on.
Well, here's the thing.
Do I believe the team - as in the players and coaches - are trying to win? Yes. But I also believe the organization did...
I mean, it's not like Fitz made it a hard choice.
This is easily the best we've looked so far.
Offensive line play has been downplayed for years. When Jake Long got released, people said we didn't need him or a proper replacement because...
I'm banking more on Steelers getting us another Top 5 pick than Houston.
He didn't quit in a game. He continued to play until he was traded.
Bravo to him, but that still doesn't make Minkah a bad person for what he did.
I'm not arguing against the notion he quit. But he has the right to take himself out of an unfavorable situation. If players want to ride it, then...
Says the person calling Minkah a baby and calling him coddled. But okay.
So basically anyone who leaves a job or a workplace that doesn't sit right with them is a baby, not a grown person who understands when something...
He's a baby because he doesn't want to sit through an engineered dumpster fire? Lol.
I know. I'm just sayin'.
Anybody who is on board for this after painting Minkah a "me-first" type of player really need to check themselves.
Don't worry. I'm sure Fitzpatrick will turn it all around next week. *scoffs*
To be fair, that probably wouldn't have done a lot better if Cam hadn't handed over the QB spot to Trent Green.
But, hey, who would have saw that...
Not that I want to defend this performance. But... how?
The front office quit on the season. If Minkah's a diva, then the FO is Moulin Rouge.
He could've made a sandwich, toasted and all, in the pockets he had.
If they have no desire to win, why would they want to be traded from a team that's tanking?
Nice footwork by Preston Williams.
All joking aside, I can get replacing Denney. He was getting up there in years, and he would have to be replaced eventually. But the timing is...
Denney?! DENNEY?! Nah, Flores has gone too far. Fire him!
How? They made the playoffs last year and they got a lot better from this trade.
Well, Texans just won the AFC South.
When I'm in a similar type of workplace as the NFL, then we can talk. But I'm not, so....
He has credentials in a lot of things - football is not one of them. And even then, his status doesn't change the fact that reaching out to the...
Except he wasn't being hypocritical or immature. He's questioning why Jay-Z is linking up with NFL on a social justice endeavor without reaching...
Just because you benefit from something doesn't mean you can't criticize it. I benefit a lot from living in the U.S., but I still have the right...
Only until recently were players out in the field standing for the anthem.
As for this, I got two things to say.
1. I really don't...
As other people pointed out, we draft tackles high but, with the exception of Samson Satele and Mike Pouncey, we don't go high for interior...
I'm personally torn on this.
On one hand, Fitz.
On the other hand, what does it say about Rosen if he can't at least hang with him?
It's used for playing cornhole.
Did someone get cut.
She's not wrong about Fitz.
I'm not sure how I feel about this.
Real recognizes real.
I'm happy people got his back.
This sucks, but his health comes first.
...We actually have Alonzo's son on the Summer League roster?
I think it's way too early to tell. While I feel positive about Grier, I felt that way about previous coaches. And so far, he hasn't quite been...
This made me chuckle.
Man, some of y'all must be great at parties
I wonder how Terminator in Gears will work out.
Good luck to him. Better to figure things out sooner than later.
I get that, and I'm not saying Reshad is a lock not to be moved. But moving McCain to safety doesn't seem like a good Plan B.
Nothing against McCain, but I doubt his move to safety is an indication of Jones being traded.
Arizona won three games. I know head-to-head records don't tell the whole story, but a 4 game difference is significant.
Counterpoint - Arizona.
It's a good thing I read the first post, because I seriously thought the Dolphins re-signed him. Thank goodness that wasn't the case.
Given Mariotta's injury history, Ryan Tannehill could be starting early.
So, potentially, the starting secondary could be Rowe, X. Howard, Jones, and Fitz.
Carrying 4 backs (5 including the Fullback) is not unheard of.
At this point, it's a low risk, high reward move. If he plays lights out? Sweet. We get a steal and probably use that first pick somewhere else....
It wasn't flashy, but it has potential.
Well, the QB competition will actually be interesting.
So we got a guard. We need a center now.
Thanks a lot, bro.
...And Metcalf is still on the board.
Lol. Cards think Grier is playing.
Metcalf is still on the board...
Lock or Haskins. That's all I ask.
"A good QB doesn't need an o-line" is the new "Aiming for a franchise QB in the 3rd round (or later) is viable strategy".
If it's just a third, then I can vibe with that trade. Still, it's a bit suspect that Arizona is willing to part with him so soon.
But that's definitely a night game uniform.
It's not bad.
I'm with it.
Could be a boon for us.
You mean the same team whose owner was arrested for visiting a massage parlor tied to a sex trafficking ring?
The Patriots organization is far...
I would take C.Kap over Ryan Fitzpatrick every day of the week, twice on Sunday, and ten times on February 29th.
....Wow. Just... Wow.
I wish Tannehill the best and still believe he'll make something out of himself as a starting QB in this league.
With that said, I seriously hope...
Probably the best spot for him - he has a good chance to start for them, whether via camp battle or the likely event of Mariotta getting injured.
Because they were.
Putting my feelings about Tannehill aside, assuming that we trade/cut Tannehill and he's replaced by Murray or whoever the FO...
I'm here for it.
Your lips, God' ears.
I love Rizzi, and I'd love for him to stay, but if you gotta get the bag, than you gotta get the bag.
...It's not that deep.
We'll have to see. Because even with injuries, Gase's ability to adjust is suspect, to say the least.
A. Parkey's kick was touched by a defender, as has already been pointed out. B. He was the reason why Chicago even had a chance to begin with.
I don't think it's a good idea to give a player a coordinator position right out of the gate. If anything, maybe have start off as a coaching...
I used to be a fan of him. But now... I just need this dude to simmer down a bit.
Interestingly, Kris Richard is a former Dolphin, having played in Miami back in 2005.
I know! I know!
I'd much rather Nick Saban a shot again, and I have a very negative opinion about Saban as is.
Indeed. That was crazy.
Sooo, can we talk about Cyborg getting knocked out.
Be a lot better than Burke.
A house of playing cards that was.
Except that wasn't what I was debating. You said that Ryan Tannehill was a coach-killer. And yet no one has come up with anything supporting that....
I expect a decent OC to do something with an offense of a team that has made the playoffs 5 out of the 6 years prior to his arrival.
I don't make excuses. I only point out factors that may effect a player.
Also, the Bengals' offense been sucking since the Steelers, way before...
So what are Philbin's and Lazor's excuses now?
Like I said, regardless how you feel about RT, it still means that these coach's are the victims of their own incompetence.
Okay, let's run with the argument that Ryan Tannehill is a coach killer.
During Ryan Tannehill's career, he's played under three different head...
People are still running with this?
In all honesty, unless he's willing to relinquish playcalling duties, Gase can go.
....You know? This isn't implausible.
Tannehill basically got sacked by his own offensive lineman. Like, how does an o-lineman does that?!
Throw the whole o-line away.
And yet they don't affect his mobility.
Have fun, guys.
Certainly a barbershop story if I ever saw one.
Also, Miami Dolphins are 5-1 in the AFC East.
Nice throw, two timely laterals, and a tight end playing safety on that play.
...Screw you, New England!
Oh my gosh!
I'd trust a financial plan from Bernie Madoff before I'd trust any injury news regarding New England.
No. Just no.
You mean the play where he threw a wobbly deep ball that only was only catchable because Clay open was more open than a mall on Black Friday?
Correlation =/= Causation, especially since Flacco wasn't even having a bad year to begin with.
I won't say all that. I do believe Lamar Jackson is capable of doing great things down the line. I'm just not gonna crown him just yet.
Not to downplay Jackson's performance, but Justin Tucker and Tavon Young are a huge reason behind that.
I'm thinking that a LB Corps who has two starters that essentially rookies and Kiki Alonso, who's inconsistent, added with a suspect Defensive...
I see what you did there.
He did very good, IMO. Granted, I'd like at least 100 more yards and a higher YPC, but 3 TDs to 1 INT with 67 percent (rounded) completion rate is...
A. He was hit on that throw.
B. Every QB throws would-be picks every week.
Lamar is basically being used as a running back under center. When he's actually quarterbacking, we'll talk.
If those two passes are enough for you to believe that, then there's nothing I can say. Good night, bro.
As much as I dislike Gase right now, I'm not gonna over look other areas of piss-poor performance.
And I'll just leave it that have. Have a good...
If we can't trust the coach's decision making, then why should we believe he was right for not having confidence in Tannehill?
....re-read what I just wrote. Carefully. Notice the word "should".
Stop what? Pointing out the reasons why we lost?
And to be honest, as much blame as Gase should get, there's a whole bunch of blame that needs to be pointed towards the offensive line (penalties)...
You said yourself that Gase was dumb. But yet you're willing to trust his judgment to not have Tannehill throw it despite the latter's performance...
Lamar Jackson has one TD and one INT during those two games. Don't get me wrong, I like Lamar Jackson and I'm hoping and predicting he does great...
Look, y'all can blame Gase all you want. Go right ahead. But anyone pinning this loss on Tannehill in any way needs to sit down.
Drake is so awesome.
Oh my gosh...
The defense is waking up, huh?
I love Tannehill, but that was an act of God. I'll take it, though!
Like seriously! He's been great this season. Only missed one field goal and one extra point, so far.
Ryan Tannehill is a freaking member of the X-Men. No one can't tell me otherwise.
So if you were the owner of the Browns, would you choose Philbin and Sherman over Bowles and Kitchens?
To be fair, Ryan Tannehill started his NFL career under Joe Philbin and Richard Sherman.
Where was this energy when Tom Brady spent decades on the injury list as probable?
Any day we beat the Jets is a good day. I'm happy.
Does this dude have concrete information? Just wondering.
Let's be honest.
If Ryan Tannehill played today and put on the same performance, a lot of people would say that his performance was overblown due...
I'll give Brock his due. Granted, the offense could've done without his two thrown interceptions and his early over-reliance on Amendola and...
You're right. It's good to know we have a capable backup.
Brock owes Wilson a new car, if not a new house.
Man screw Sam Young!
Especially Gray. Being an H-Back, we basically lost a tight end and a fullback in one go.
....Can we at least hit a .500 record before we start acting like the sky is falling? Like, I get it - it was a horrible lost. But people are...
Man, was that a ride!
BTW, screw the refs.
If I was the DB trailing Wilson, I'd be big mad.
Thanks a lot. Best of luck to the Packers.
It seems like Tannehill is still adjusting a bit. There were times when he was better than last week, and times when he was worse.
On the bright...
Lol. Jets are gonna Jets.
Wasn't Larsen going to be the starter ladt year before he was injured?
He deserves it.
And it's back.
....Seriously, screw Fox.
They just cut away from the game!
...Did anyone else's feed just cut out?
Lol. Rashad got pushed INTO the interception.
A Rick Ross instrumental underneath a replay of that TD?
When was the last time we've had interior linemen this dominant?
Drake is just awesome.
....I'ma need Gore to drop his workout routine on Twitter.
I like Wilson.
Never mind - GREAT red zone defense so far.
Good red zone defense so far.
We basically lost our FB, too.
This line up has major potential.
With his speed and what looks like a better o-line, I think he'll be a boon in both the running and passing game.
To be honest, while I do still wish him the best, I just found some of his post-trade comments to be some sucker-type stuff. And this is coming...
The Miami Dolphins have added a familiar...
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. I'm digging the game so far.
Just gonna say this one thing, and I'm out this conversation.
The fact, that is either often ignored or often lost, is that the kneeling happened...
Today is gonna be a good day.
Perhaps Landry was talking about last offseason, with Cutler and Moore.
I am pretty sure I've seen pictures of Ryan Tannehill and other receivers (Landry included) coming together in the offseason on Twitter.
Apparently, there are 10 unnounced SKU's for the Switch....
I hope so. The man can use a year of not constantly running for his life.
Also. I'm hoping to see something about the new Pokemon.
A TMZ report?
Yeeeaaah, I'm gonna need receipts.
For those who are into that.
^What he said.
Not hating this draft at all. Gesicki is my favorite pick of the draft.
I'm not going to drag him too hard. He wasn't good, but he tried.
6'6" with a 4.54 40. Noice!!!!
1. Vita Vea
2. Minkah Fitzpatrick
3. Saquon Barkley (Pipe dream)
I wish Pouncey the best. Injuries aside, he's been great for the team.
That's the main caveat.
The best free agent...
A team player if I ever saw one.
This has been his best promo work as of lately.
I especially loved the nuances he showed on Monday, like how he walked up to Paul Heyman and...
The problem is... Matt Moore wasn't much better than Jay Cutler, if at all. Hindsight, I know. But we weren't playing in an offensive system that...
I'm sorry, but this move has high potential of blowing up in the 49ers' face.
With the exception of Matt Cassel (who is okay at best), every...
Also, let me add one more thing to this discussion.
Gase has only coached the Dolphins for two years. Don't get me wrong - this past season was a...
No coach is infallible. Yes, he was wrong about Cutler, the reasoning for going after Cutler made sense, given that he knew the system. Even...
Yeah, no offense, because I like Tebow as a person. But Colin Kaepernick is the better quarterback by miles.
...I wouldn't be opposed.
I can't agree with firing Gase. I'm not gonna act like he's infallible, because he's not. At the same time, this season included, he only has two...
Well dang, TJ!
Grant! That boy good!
Xavien Howard for the Pro Bowl.
This is happening... this is really happening...
Good for Stills.
Well, we won.
I'm just going to enjoy it today.
Houston, LA, and Philly had horrible QBs prior to their current* starting QBs.
*Unfortunately, for Houston, DeShaun got injured.
The whole stadium?
Interesting. I thought he'd have to be activated by Week 8 (like PUP).
I thought RT17 was on season-ending IR.
Really? We're going to pull the millennial card now?
Well, glad I can add another thing to the list of things millennials are "killing".
Like, I thought it was a joke at first. And then I was like "....Wayment"
I'd sign him in a heartbeat.
I actually preferred Cutler over Kaepernick initially (even though I maintain that Colin is the better quarterback),...
....wait, is this legit?
1. Gase, yes
2. Tannehill, yes
3. Cutler .... I can't answer this yet. Can I answer at the end of the season?
4. Phins this year for playoffs,...
You know, I leaned towards Cutler because he knew the system. Now, I'm not making any judgment on Cutler yet (It's three games), but you may be right.
I'm reserving judgment on Cutler until a few mire games. But, AT THIS VERY POINT, I don't see how anyone can say that Cutler is better than Tannehill.
Why didn't he just run?
Well there you go.
I thought Jay Cutler played as well as he could given the circumstances. Some mistakes here and there, but he wasn't shooting himself in the foot.
Solid pick-up all around, IMO.
...So we replace him with Parkey?
It wasn't that simple.
We placed a second round tender on him, and the Patriots was considering giving an offer sheet that would have basically...
Figure y'all will enjoy this.
In a statement released Tuesday, the...
I like this signing
Yeah, I'm just popping in to say this - if you're using ESPN's QBR to critique a QB.... don't.
And that's the reason why I'm pretty lukewarm.
As for the artlice... don't get me wrong, considering that he already knows the system, I think...
I'm still lukewarm on him, but considering that he knows the system, he's probably the best option we have as far as stopgaps go.
I don't know how many TOs make you a TO machine. He did have 16 (11 Ints, 5 Fumbles Lost).
The man threw for 2,241 yards, 16 TDs, 4 Ints, and completed 59.2 percent of his passes, all while playing 12 games (starting 11). What are you...
So, what Kap has done is worse than beating a woman and killing dogs. Is that what you're implying.
Keep in mind, Jay Cutler stated that it was his wife who convinced him to come back.
Also, yes, I do believe C. Kap is being blackballed,...
Have you read this thread?
I don't understand this fixation on Garopollo.
With the exception of Matt Cassell, every NE QB backing up Brady went on to do jack squat when...
While I got nothing against Moore.... it's the Jets.
It doesn't point to him being a TO-Type cancer. It points to him being blacklisted, which is stupid since there are players who have done way...
You said the man was a TO-level cancer. Explain to me how?
I'm no doc. But that looks encouraging.
....That list is trash.
Geno Smith? Chad Henne? You can't be serious.
CTE rings a bell?
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Do those stats account for the fact that Landry wasn't even a starting Wide Receiver during his first year?
Landry: 94 Receptions, 1136 Yds, 4 TDs, 12.1 YPC
Brown: 106 Receptions, 1284 Yds, 12 Tds, 12.1 YPC
Jones: 83 Receptions, 1409 Yds,...
I mean, our guard situation does look like it has potential to not be the reason for me to chuck my TV across room, so there's that.
Serge Ibaka started that way, too. Just sayin'...
I personally like the pick.
I meant to X (tgough I'm happy about that, too).
Maybe not all years, but he definitely had to deal with all four in 2015 (I consider an underutilized run game equivalent to a bad run game).
Okay, before I respond, I need some clarification. What's false - that no other QB was in that situation, or that he was missing all four of those...
Some games have my attention, like Anthem.
So I finally finished Xenoblade Chronicles X. My thoughts...
-If you got a Wii U, cop this game.
-Definitely worth the B grade. It has a lot going...
Teams draft high for a QB because it's rare to find a starting QB in the mid-to-late rounds.
Okay, I'm not asking this to be a smart alleck. I just want to make sure I got it straight before I weigh in on this. You're making an argument...
That can be learned.
Jinder Mahal is the new WWE Champion.
And I'm happy about that.
And as well they should, since it has its flaws.
That said, ESPN's QBR is a lot worse. It's inconsistent and is just not a good metric.
I really wanted to stay out of these type of threads....
First of all, I've yet to see anyone in this thread try to make a case for, much less...
Drew Bledsoe was Bellicheck's Tannehill....
Wow... Now I've heard everything.
Godchaux is signed.
You wouldn't have to worry about book money if you made your book available as an eBook like I told you to.
Everyone except for Harris and Godchaux.
I'm guessing it's because he shares the last name of the superhero in question.
In all honesty, the only... well, complaint is not the word, because I think Chef is a nice pick. But I would have chosen Obi over him.
Isaac Asiata. Nice!
Can't be any worse than Clabo or Thomas.
Unfortunately, that ship sailed.
Let's get it.
Packers started off by picking Vince Biegel, LB out of Wisconsin. Jaleel Johnson, DT out of Iowa, went to the Vikings.
To be honest, I wanted Obi over The Chef, but The Chef is nice.
My shortlist is Obi Melifonwu, Zach Cunningham, and Dion Dawkins - in that order.
My fingers are crossed for Obi.
I don't see any "ignorant" stuff on his instagram.
I find it funny that people are down on Parker, but believe he's valuable enough to be traded for dang near anybody.
Coming from someone who has drunk a lot of water while sick, I don't think it was unlikely.
That is not a definition of a bust. For him to be a bust, he'd have to be absolutely trash at his position, which Long wasn't.
I think it's stupid that a diluted sample is counted as an automatic positive.
A bust? He was the best LT in the league before injuries got to him.
Say it louder for the people in the back!
I wouldn't do this because he's a receiver that Tannehill trusts, and I'd much rather not do anything that would hinder Tannehill. Plus, there's...
I wouldn't be mad at this.
Cameron Worrell and Trent Green. Enough said.
Thomas, who was acquired in exchange...
4 Years, 32 Mill, 20 Mill guaranteed.
Seems fair to me.
I certainly wouldn't be opposed.
To be honest, I wouldn't draft one in the first two rounds because we have needs to be addressed. However, I wouldn't mind adding another tight...
Thanks for the review.
It's a shame, really.
...I wouldn't hate it.
I heard Tannehill was by Gase's side, polishing a shotgun as Gase made his case.
