Guys, it wasn't just e-mails from 2011. They ranged from 2011 to 2018.
They ranged from 2011 to 2018.
Don't know why my comment was deleted. But...
If all these people who think Gruden is being fired because of "wokeness" or "this generation being...
It's called sarcasm, sir.
You can spin it how you want. There's not a single coach who'd coach up their QB to take unnecessary hits.
So you posted a clip of Herbert making a stupid play for the sake of making a dig at Tua.
Good for you.
That's a reach.
Yes. Because if I'm a teammate and I see the starting QB taking a hit that should have been avoided, I'm certainly not going to worry he's going...
Because it was an ill-advised decision that didn't even get the first down. Had Herbert gotten injured on this play, people wouldn't call him...
That interception wasn't on him. Apparently, his intended target slipped while running his route.
...That was not a good decision. At all.
I'm not here to defend Chris Grier or anything, but Mike Lombardi is one of the last people I'd go to for an opinion on another GM.
At least we're not Jackonsville.
Yeah, I heavily disagree with this part. While he was indeed put on IR for his protection, I highly doubt they're milking this injury. Playing...
This, pretty much.
"Numerous personnel men and coaches around the league have heard, dating back to last season, that Flores would have preferred to select Justin...
That's assuming the suspension won't be indefinite.
I'm not suggesting we bring Kap on as a starter. I say bring him on as a backup. And his "decline" had less to do with himself and more to do with...
Grier is looking suspect.
I'm really not.
Don't see why not. He'd be a better back up than Sinnett.
Honestly, I'd sign Kap right now.
Because even the most elite of defenses can do so much for so long when the offense keeps putting up nothing.
Clearly those injuries show that Justin Herbert doesn't have what it takes to be an NFL QB.
I'm not one to condone or encourage violence. But if Tua wanted to homie in the parking lot, I'd understand.
I agree with this. ESPECIALLY OL and RB, since we've been lowballing the latter lately.
You're not wrong.
Tua might as well have played without an offensive line.
Yeah, that last INT was a lot more on Wilson than it was on Tua.
It was Xavien Howard.
Also, Tua owes Xavien a whole Wagyu rib roast.
An ugly win. But considering it was on the road, in Gillette Stadium no less, I'll gladly take it.
Not an interception, but Howard got his first TO of the year.
Picked that defense apart.
Uncle Shay is not wrong. At all.
Tyrod is actually quite better than Fitz. Most of the time, he only lost his starting job due to freak injuries.
Well, in the NBA's case, most of their games are usually on cable/satellite. A lot of people lost their jobs in 2020 or had to reduce their work...
To be very fair, while ratings are down, Neilsen doesn't account for streams and has only announced lately that they will....
I don't see a problem with it, personally.
Fairly or not, professional athletes are often expected to be a role models, and they're using their...
The Dolphins said Stephen Ross didn't say anything about a trade.
You honestly think Flores is the type of person address every single rumor that is made about the team?
Honestly, I wouldn't even think about Watson until his situation is cleared up.
I just don't see how any team would want to trade for Watson right now.
I know it's preseason... but dang if this doesn't spark joy!
Sam had his Wheaties this morning.
Which reminds me.
Screw Nate Solder.
A trip to Canada might do him some good.
Wasn't this guy talking crap about Tua on Twitter after the pick was thrown?
My thoughts exactly.
Well, the thing is, during the trade request, Xavien's his side (him and his agent) stated that they put forward proposals that were team friendly...
Seems like it. They probably thought they had all the leverage until camp started.
Pat Riley is on it!
The problem is your argument literally ignores how serious the twisties is. It was already stated how her continuing on while going through the...
You are literally the only person who brought Simone's gender into this.
Even more perspective.
No bro. By not risking her life and career for a sport she already accomplished a lot in, she let her country down!
Well, fortunately, it shouldn't be season ending IR.
But since you're concerned about his injury history (a legit worry), I'd go as far as to add incentives based on him staying healthy durimg the...
Honestly? A little higher than Jones with more money guaranteed if possible (I'm no capologist)
After his 2020 performance, I'd roll that dice. Xavien Howard led the league in interceptions twice. And it says a lot when there are plentynof...
So, basically, you have no room to say that mental issues is just an excuse.
Question, have you ever been in Simone Biles' position before?
And, as I said time and time again, I believe the Dolphins shouldn't have paid a Top 5 contract for a player that's not top 5.
Dude, on multiple occasions, you've underrated Xavien Howard as a player. Meanwhile, I've stated that Byron Jones is a great corner even as I also...
I'll give you the availability.
How often was Byron used as a safety last year?
And that's how the ball was dropped.
I'm asking you.
And Suni Lee was one of the main people who had Simone Biles back. Are you going to call Suni soft for understanding what Simone is going through?
Why don't you ask Anthony Bourdain's friends how easily someone with mental issues can hide it. From the outside looking in, it seems like he's...
Let me put it another way.
Do you think Byron Jones is a better cornerback than Xavien Howard?
Oh, don't you know? It's only okay if the organization does it.
So if you were in Howard's position, and they signed an inferior CB to a richer contract, you'd just smile through it?
So you must know Simone enough to know what's she motivated by, huh?
Once again, I can't feel sorry for Miami in this one. Yes, Howard signed the contract. But fact of the matter is, Howard is a Top 5 CB who is...
If you lack the capacity for empathy, just say that.
I'm glad she did.
Mental health is more important than a sport.
Unfortunate if what Howard stated is true.
Biased as all heck since I'm an FAU alum, but I'm loving the LeBlanc signing.
Playoff Berth, IMO. We were very close last season.
He had a good career.
Do you have a link to this study?
People are bringing up e-mails while ignoring the fact that said e-mails about masks not working were from the beginning of the...
While I see what you're getting at, you're talking about Tweets belonging to an immunologist who was studying the virus.
Fact checkers spread disinformation.
Now I heard it all.
It's just funny to me that people don't understand that contracts can be renegotiated.
Like, how do you think a pay cut and a restructure happen?
I get that. But, as stated multiple times, the organization put themselves in this situation by paying more for Byron Jones. I like Byron Jones....
"He's not a lockdown corner."
His stats say otherwise....
As someone who enjoys it whenever the Miami Heat rock the Miami Floridians jersey, I wouldn't mind the Dolphins rocking a Miami Seahawks jersey....
Except it wasn't a bad a move because Revis still had a very good season.
And of course trades like that are rare, because you'd be very...
....So, you're agreeing with me?
Well, first of all. Darrelle Revis got traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 13th overall pick and a conditional pick at age 28 back in 2013....
Right now, he's number six behind Byron Jones.
Do you believe that there are five corners better than Howard right now?
I'm for Xavien Howard making more money. He had quite and has led the league in interceptions twice. Even if he doesn't snag as many...
The point is he should be paid vas such.
But we don't have an Aaron Donald. We have an Xavien Howard, who is the best player on the defense.
Yes. The reason being Aaron Donald, who, as a DEFENSIVE TACKLE, was putting up ridiculous sack numbers.
I never said it was.
It's always interesting to me when loyalty gets brought up in these types of argument. It's almost always about a player's loyalty to a...
I'm just saying. If you're very good at making houses and/or communities, your price is going to go up after you make a certain amount.
The problem is, Xavien Howard isn't building a house. He's been building multiple communities, so to speak.
Xavien Howard earned his price tag.
Screw The Raiders for that.
Tebow becoming a tight end is the right move... that was made years too late.
To be honest, I lean towards Rodgers in that situation.
My problem is that, at his age, it won't be guaranteed that Miami will get a good year...
If that's what a player wants, then that's that player's worth.
No one likes getting paid less than their worth.
Idaho Community College for the Blind and Amputees...

Robert Jones, G,...
On the topic at hand, I was a bit down on the draft because I was hoping we'd grab a center and I forgot that we signed Matt Skura. But, with that...
Bruh, if Waddle turns out to be a consistent 1,000 yard receiver and gets multiple Pro Bowl/All-Pro selections, you'd be hard-pressed to find...
His scouting report says otherwise.
Mac Jones is not happy.
Jets are having decent draft, I must say.
Well, 49ers didn't take Mac Jones. Wise decision.
If ESPN's QBR is garbage - which it is - then it has no value as a reference.
Also, back on topic.
If the 49ers let Fields slide, they need to fire their whole staff.
Hmmmm, let's look at the coaches who made that decision, shall we?
Jim Tonsula: Hasn't had a head coaching job in any capacity since.
If Kaepernick was a train wreck, then Gabbert is the Chernobyl disaster.
To be fair, San Fran's handling of their QB situation has been questionable the last 10 years.
Gabbert over Kaepernick, anyone?
Interesting pick up.
I thought of something worse, to be honest.
But, on the topic... I agree with Tin. While I think 6 is a great spot, I think Grier would be open...
Honestly, if I was Atlanta, I'd take Justin Fields without question. Matt Ryan is 35 years old. Even if he does play for three or even five more...
This really sucks man.
I know, to most people, his name is synonymous with The Dolphins and The U (and for dang good reason), but he was the man...
Never doubt Pat Riley.
It wouldn't be a bad signing.
At this point in time, all we can do it wait and see. On one hand, the timing of this is rather suspect. On the other hand, I always try not to be...
I don't think so. I think Carter is just the replacement Fullback. But, I could be wrong.
It's never a bad thing to get a good H-Back.
That'd be quite the reunion.
Somewhere, out there, Deshaun Watson is tossing his laptop out the window.
I imagine that a couple of DEs from The U are going to get a long look.
Definitely a high volume tackler.
The thing is, Sean Lee was on injured reserve until Halloween, played in 9 games, and only started two. Given those circumstances, 32 tackles is...
Well, yeah. But it's not the talent that's the main issue. It's the price.
As someone who is still firmly in the "Tua is going to turn out pretty...
Zach got hosed.
After that Stafford trade, any price for Watson would be to the moon.
I wouldn't mind getting Watson. While I'm still firmly on the Tua bandwagon, Watson is young and proven.
The problem is, we have a lot of...
Normally, you'd be right, considering that Houston is a so much of a joke that even J.J. Watt, of all people, wants out, I don't think there'll be...
I'd honestly rather draft a receiver.
Well, that's what happens when you get a vote of confidence from Peyton Manning.
First of all, I believe it's Flores and Grier are handling that. Second of all, as I said in another thread, no person in their right mind should...
I was about to laugh at the thought of Bill O'Brien. Then I looked up how well the Patriots did the one year he was the Offensive Coordinator.
Xavien Howard and Jason Sanders were selected for the first team, Jakeem...
Houston really is a dumpster fire. At this point, we could probably get Tunsil back for the low.
I'd sooner trust a snail to beat Usain Bolt in a footrace before I'd trust Adam Gase around Tua in any capacity.
I got all the respect in the world for Jay Fiedler, but... nah.
While I get what you're saying, that's not exactly the best example. As soon as Tannehill was traded, Vrabel made it perfectly clear that Mariotta...
I personally want Penei Sewell, but I'd be happy with Najee Harris.
Tua is still has a lot to learn. But, it's his first year. I'm not at the point where I think that a top five pick should be used on a QB.
Your definition of trash is rather weird.
The Miami Dolphins...
And without him, they no receivers worth talking about.
Because we all know The Texans are a great example of good decision making.
I honestly wouldn't mind having Stills back, but I don't think he and Flores are ready to make nice yet. As it is, it's a good signing for Buffalo.
So yeah.... that game... was painful.
It's almost like they're trying to give Miami a better pick.
Do we get an extra win for beating the refs?
These refs are straight trash.
It was a good showing. Glad to get a bounce back win.
Ben Volin is what happens when you're a Skip Bayless without a Shannon Sharpe in your life.
Hurts was never a bad QB at Alabama. The Eagles got a steal.
Wagyu? Like legit wagyu?
Tua has good taste.
MLB said Wednesday that it was "correcting a longtime...
And that's how you take advantage of a short field.
Miami got Mahomes acting unusual!
Van Noy was on one against the Bengals.
Same, bro. Same.
He was playing with a hurt foot, which was obviously effecting him because even the announcers noted it.
A. He's injured.
B. It's the Jets.
Xavien is just different.
"This guy's gonna get paid."
Yeah he is.
Looks like this upcoming draft is going to be offense focused. I don't see how we go the first three rounds without drafting a back.
Is it me, or is Needham playing better as of late?
I predict an Ogbah sack.
This is going to be a long game for Lock.
Just taking it one week at a time myself.
So, multiple players had a problem with the PR director being fired, but Stills get singled out because...
20 out of 28 Passes Completed, 248 Yards, 2 Touchdowns, 0 Interceptions, 7 Carries for 35 Yards, 122.3 Passer Rating.
Tua definitely did his thing. If he's improving at this rate, the team will be golden for years to come.
Tua is looking more and more comfortable.
Little by little, Tua is getting better.
I like that.
I don't think he played bad. I don't think he played good. He played like a rookie. Of course, he wasn't helped by some of the drops that...
Rowe... That guy's good.
Roberts is on one today.
This defense is eating!
Preston! What's going on with his hands?
Come on, Preston!
More pressure. More pressure!
I wasn't prepared for this savagery.
TD number 1.
Why is Wilkins so underrated?
Yeah, I'm would need at least a second round pick in return if I was in charge of trade. Yes, I know it's a pipedream, but considering how...
Lol. That's funny.
Gostkowski. Ain't. Crap!
Yeah. Sickle Cell Trait.
I think Trevor fears being a Jets QB more than other people at his moment.
To be fair, Ryan Clark had quite the playing career, even after having his gall bladder and spleen removed. So, I don't think he's a stranger to...
That last touchdown was nonchalant. Ryan Tannehill basically said "Here, have this."
Difference is, wrestling referees are supposed to suck.
I know you're being facetious... but I don't think you're wrong.
I find it funny how the LA sheriff is trying to call out LeBron for the value of lives when his own deputies leaked the details of Kobe Bryant's...
Now you can say it.
Can't say I'm surprised.
Thanks, but we don't know that yet.
...I don't see how anyone can say that when we haven't even seen him a pro game, but okay.
Hate to see him go. Wish him the best.
Better career than Brady Quinn's, that for sure.
And that answers my question.... How?
Yup. Protected by his peak athleticism with no lasting issues.
Let's assume that the percentage you provided was accurate.
If I poured you a drink and told you there was a 0.000000002% chance that it could...
And that's a reason not to take a seriously because...?
I can't say I blame them. I want to see the Dolphins in action as much as the next person, but COVID-19 is something that should be taken seriously.
Is it, though?
Get that money.
Wasn't he just joking, though?
Can't say I have. This seems like something rather new.
IMO, not having any members of the 72 team would be a huge oversight. Like, you make a huge case for Csonka, Morris, and Jake Scott (especially...
The only two people I can say for sure is Don Shula and Dan Marino. As for the other two spots? They have to be from the '72 for sure.
The only thing I could think of is if the poster graduated high school at a later age or if Ryan Tannehill graduated school at a younger age.
Would love to have him, but I highly doubt the Jets would trade him to the Phins.
Once again, 2020 is trash.
RIP, and condolences to his family.
Plus, if we're being honest, it's kinda hard to judge a full back when the quarterback is the leading rusher on your offense, and when your...
Well, Eric Reid is stiil around. I wouldn't mind signing him.
Our corners seem to be the strength of our defense so far.
Unless Logan Ryan is down with being a Dime Back, I doubt landing him would be feasible.
I can't wait to see him out on the field.
Oh, you can. It'd be unwise, but you can.
I'm really interested in seeing how the additions to our line is going to look.
Had this been coming from anyone else, I'd say you're too much into things.
Interesting choice of number.
Man, screw 2020.
Yeah, it's almost we have (or had, depending on how well Flores does - I'm optimistic on him) a record of making bad coaching hires.
It reminds me of when people made a huge deal about how Demarcus Ware was manhandling Jake Long during a Dolphins/Cowboys game... when Demarcus...
So it wasn't the longsnapping in and of itself. I was his tackling on Special Teams. Now it makes sense.
Overall, a decent draft.
My problem isn't the fact we drafted a longsnapper. My problem is that we done so when we already have one.
John Denney was already replaced during the LAST offseason by Taybor Pepper.
According to ESPN.com, yes.
...A longsnapper? Yeah, I'm not with this pick.
I'm surprised Weaver lasted this long.
No to mention that he averaged over 5.0 yards per carry last season and the season before.
I can live with that.
I liked her. It was just mad annoying when quite a few people had a problem with her for no sane reason.
Me myself? I'd like DT/NT Leki Fotu from Utah, S Marc-Antoine Dequoy from Montreal, TE Thaddeus Moss out of LSU, OLB Willie Gay, Jr. out of...
Another piece to the secondary. I like that.
To be fair, I don't think a lot of people predicted Burrow to have the season he did and for Tua to get hit with some injuries.
I expect to grab one safety and one pass rusher.
And the Miami Dolphins could make a pick so great that Jesus himself came down from the heavens, and you'd criticize the pick because Moses and...
Overall, I like our first round. Not feeling the last pick, but dude's athletic, so let's see how it goes.
Not feeling this pick, tbh.
I like this pick.
Here we go. I hope Tua doesn't get Brady Quinn'd
And here.... we... go.
Mel Kiper's Brady Quinn rant comes to mind.
I'm definitely group #2, albeit leaning towards Tua.
Assuming we get our QB with our next or last pick in the first round?
Tristan Wirfs. It's not a sexy pick, I know, but it fills a need.
If the price is right, they would. The only question is, what would be the right price.
Me personally? If I was The Bengals, I'd tell Miami to...
Still not a trade I'd make. We got too many holes to fill, and with only one team a threat to pick up Tua, if the worst case scenario is reaching...
The reason I don't want to trade up for Burrow is because I can't help but shake the feeling the Bengals are going to ask for a King's ransom.
Will he be splitting time at LB and FB like he did in New England?
I doubt it. We're still gonna need D-Linemen and safeties.
Source: The #Dolphins are getting #Cowboys FA CB Byron Jones. A massive deal for the now highest-paid corner.
Not a bad start so far.
That might be an understatement.
I'll be happy with Tua, but I wouldn't trade up for him, or any other QB.
As much as it pains me to say this, if I was Ryan, I'd hop onto the next plane to Foxborough.
If the trade makes sense, sure. But The Bengals have absolutely zero to put their pick for a price that's down the earth. Right now, they're in a...
Miami Dolphins assistant...
Herbert intrigues me. But I'm not sure I'd take him with the 5th pick.
Thing is, I don't know if he'd make it to 18.
*looks at 140+ pages in this thread*
....I'm pretty sure resnor is trolling.
Yeah, let me just say this.
If you're using ESPN's QBR to analyze a quarterback... Don't.
To be fair, he did his thing during the Senior Bowl.
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.
