Separate names with a comma.
I just have this feeling the Lions will go winless and become the first team with two winless seasons. (They do have a tie at least this season.)
Holy crap my picks were bad this week.
We need better coaches at every position including head coach.
I have written a total of 49 books and I believe 47 of them are currently available on Amazon.
I have a website, but it's particularly useless...
But let's not trade him...
If he did ghost-writing, he probably can't tell you the titles. Usually, you have to sign a contract not to reveal that you wrote it and not the...
Yeah, I get that. Plus I suck at marketing. Luckily, I found a couple publishers who do a good job at it.
Thanks man. I think it's cool people actually pay money for it. Blows my mind.
I write science fiction for a living and even I can't imagine a world that starkly different from reality.
I changed my Packers-Chiefs pick to the Chiefs. Rodgers tested positive for COVID.
This is the worst coached team in Dolphins history. Not the worst, talent-wise, but definitely the poorest coaching.
I don't know if they're victims or not. I know they're accusers. He's probably a dirtbag, don't get me wrong, but whether what he did rises to...
So, you'd rather allow the state to convict someone without evidence? Because where does that stop?
No, that would be incorrect. The burden of proof in EVERY criminal case falls on the STATE. And that's the way it SHOULD be. When we have a...
The Saints aren't as stupid as the Dolphins.
Bring on the offseason.
Thank God I don't do this for money.
Oh, but it's all okay, and Tua is the answer and Flores is a good coach and you're just being knee-jerk. That's what the usual suspects will say.
No. Right now, he would be an embarrassment for this team.
I picked a place where they don't get that much snow.
As of today, I am no longer a Floridian. I am a Wyomingite.
I was born in Tampa and have always had a soft spot for the Bucs, mostly because my late father was a fan. I don't wear their gear or go to their...
No, the game would be to say "Tua is our QB and I have every faith and confidence in him." What he's doing is causing problems for Tua and the...
3-14. Maybe. 2-15 is not impossible.
Not big enough. I'd still bet on the Bills to cover.
Can't make what you don't have.
Because that always happens, that coaches and GMs say publicly that they don't trust their QB.
We've already traded everyone who's worth a damn. May as well trade anyone who someone is willing to throw a pick at so the new GM and HC can...
I doubt it's true.
You can't bench all the players. That's why you fire the coach.
Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Archie Manning, Dakota Fanning...ANYONE and I mean right down to one of us here, could do a better job than Grier has...
This sounds more like Pirates of the Caribbean than SEAL Team 6...
You don't see who to replace them with? The damned waterboy would be an improvement. LOOK AT THE STATS. Look how low we're rated and tell me...
Well, Flores SHOULD be fired, but if we're restricted to one of the three O-coords, does it matter which one you fire?
Does it matter who the replacement is? This season is over. Fire them, promote an interim even if they're incompetent and try to replace in the...
This season, I'm not really worried about the possibility.
I picked them too. I'm going to pick against the Fins every week until they win another game.
Damn, I already have five misses. I suck this week.
Hope you're planning on northern Maine. Coastal Maine is being inundated by refugees from MA, CT and NY and the real estate prices are going...
We don't have our draft pick this coming offseason. We traded up to get Waddle. After trading down.
We might take one from the Jets. But we're losing to Atlanta.
If we could convince Ross to sell the team, everyone would get replaced.
I'd love to make you a bet. But honestly, I think I'm done. Since I am moving out of Florida, it seems like a great time just to make a clean...
There is no excuse for the losses we've had this season. Three years is long enough to rebuild. Flores and Grier need to be gone.
What color is the sky on your world?
I'm not sure about that. If the locker room has quit on the coach, Ross could be risking getting his hand-picked all-star QB (insert rolleyes...
I don't think it matters what I would do, because the guy calling the shots is a moron, at least when it comes to football.
Flores has made some really bad coaching decisions, too, though.
All the people in the press who said this team was imploding were 100% right.
****. I am moving to Wyoming in a week anyway. No NFL team there. Maybe it's time to just give up watching football. I kept hoping the Fins...
Agreed. Ross is a fan but he knows nothing about how to run a football team.
This team plays like an expansion team already, so where's the harm?
He can ride home with Urban Meyer after they both get lap dances.
This team is garbage. Three years of "rebuilding." Yeah, they tore down a 3/2 suburban cookie-cutter home and put up a double-wide in tornado alley.
He's toast. Maybe lasts the season, maybe not. I only hope they get rid of Grier too.
That isn't always the case. Tannehill performs great when his team can run the ball. When they can't, he's not that good.
How would you expect him to give even adequate performance when he's running for his life constantly and has no running game? That's not to say...
Huh? You mean any team that cut or traded all their talented veterans and drafted poorly would be having a disaster? Yes I think we can all...
It's the players, too, particularly on offensive line.
If he'd taken the safe pick, we'd have a much better team. He's another one of these morons who thinks he's too smart for the NFL and that he's...
Couldn't have said it better myself. And whether or not it's justified, whether or not it's smart, I believe the fact is, a loss to the Jags...
It doesn't matter who we hire to coach if we keep making crappy personnel decisions. We need a competent GM.
If we had any kind of pass defense, I would say we win the game easily. Unfortunately, we've shown that we don't.
After watching the Jags against the Titans, I am not so sure we beat them.
I just care about production. If we were winning and scoring points and some games we were throwing the ball 50 times and other games we were...
I sometimes think we would have been better off keeping Laramy Tunsil.
BTW, people here keep acting like this is just disaffected Dolphins fans making these observations. It's not. EVERYONE sees what's happening...
That's not a sustainable pattern for an NFL franchise. If the owner wants this team to win a SB, or even contend for one, they have to show a...
And when they don't...will you admit Flores has crapped the bed?
We won't beat Atlanta. We won't be able to defend against their passing game. We won't beat any of the last four teams you listed playing the...
First of all, it's not the losses, it's the way our defense, which is supposedly Flores' strongsuit, got embarrassed.
And second it doesn't...
Not a chance in hell. He's not getting four full seasons as a tryout. If this season goes the way it's looking, he's done and deservedly so. He...
We're 1-4 and every time we play a top-tier team, a team that made it deep into the playoffs, they blow our doors off. That's in year THREE of...
They ARE missing players. They're missing them in the draft and free agency. And on top of that, Flores and Grier can't hire a good O-coordinator...
He could help Ross halfway across the street.
Another wasted coaching hire, a once-in-a-lifetime waste of fleecing someone in a trade. This team just puts me off wanting to even watch football.
I think 50% of them were overpicked, and at least three have underperformed.
SOME premium picks have busted??
With this offensive line? And this sort of crappy playcaling?
You know where else you won't see it? From an owner who clearly is a fan but knows little about the inner-workings of the league. If we lose to...
If we lose to the Jags, I hope Flores gets fired.
I still don't know about Mac Jones. He's shown some promise and I think he'll be competent, but I still don't get the all-star QB vibe from him....
Good to see someone held accountable. Now if he would just fire the offensive coordinator and Ross would fire Grier, we'd be set.
I still think Tua can be good. We did screw up and he's not going to be as good as Herbert IMHO, but he could still be good. But not behind this...
We should fire one of our two offensive coordinators and put the heat on the other one.
Either Flores thinks we're idiots or he's the idiot.
Man, I was wrong about Herbert. I didn't want him. I was sure he wasn't all there mentally for the NFL. I was totally wrong. To be fair, I was...
Ryan Tannehill is a slightly-above-average NFL QB. He has flashes of being a very, very good QB, but his inconsistency keeps him from the...
Hoo man, I screwed the pooch on this week.
Well, it is. There are teams who are 1-3 who might come back and have a good season. And you can tell that from how they play. The Fins are not...
I thought they were going to win 11 games because I was fooled into thinking the defense was good enough to compensate for Tua's shortcomings.
Probably doesn't matter. Whichever of his relatives inherit it will no doubt sell it, given how much an NFL franchise is worth.

I was okay with us drafting Tua, though I was worried about his hip. What I was NOT okay with was who we brought in at O-line. The O-line...
This is as close to a sure loss as I have ever seen. Maybe next week, or the week after, the Fins could have a chance to win this game, but...
To be fair, I don't trust them, either. They've given me little reason to trust them wrt personnel.
And how many QB injuries will he net us before he grows?
They need to keep Flores, but they need a new GM and he needs to force Flores to hire a competent offensive coordinator. Singular.
It's called decades of poor drafting and incompetent front offices, all coming down from a clueless owner.

Only on the internet is thinking someone was drafted too high and won't make a good NFL QB "venomous hatred." Just for the...

Tua, Brissett..does it honestly matter who plays behind this line?
We don't. Not with this team.
If it was Justin Herbert, he would have probably got out of the way. Because, you know, he's right-handed and would have been facing into that rush.
How about you believe in what other NFL QBs have done? Drew Brees played with 8 broken ribs. Chris Simms finished a game with a ruptured spleen...
They don't have much of a shot of winning with him.
I didn't like the Jackson pick either. He was a reach and everyone knew it. There were better O linemen available.
It's beginning to be more and more obvious that the nightmare scenario has come true. We got buttloads of picks and then an incompetent GM wasted...
I was about to say they better start scheming to get the ball out of Tua's hands quicker to avoid the inevitable pass-rush...but then I realized...
Flores should be forced to hire a competent offensive coordinator.
We spent a lot of picks and FA money on O-linemen. Just the wrong ones, as usual. I said it during the 20 and 21 drafts, we drafted the wrong...
I'm afraid this all but guarantees that Ross is going to force a trade for Watson.
This is what happens when you draft project O-linemen and split your O-coordinator job between two people, neither of whom is qualified.

Bill Barnwell on Twitter: "The last five minutes of that game were like watching two people who have never seen football before play Madden"
Yes, but I hate the Cowboys, so...
10-7 or 11-6 I think is doable.
I wouldn't trade three first rounders for anyone. Screw that.
At this point, I need Tua to show me he has what it takes to be a solid starter in the NFL. If he can do that, we can be a contender. If not,...
Much less than the start of last season. He didn't show me what I needed to see from him. Hope it was just rookie jitters, but he'll have to...
Not interested. I think I'd stop following the Dolphins altogether if they traded for him at this point.
It's been said already, but we have to make the playoffs or this season is a failure.
The coaches may not be worried, but I am.
I hope at this point that we don't trade for Watson. As talented as he is, it would be a PR nightmare and give the team a huge black eye. Not to...
I don't see us in the playoffs this year. Maybe next season if Tua can make progress.
Damn, you're right. It's going to take me a while to get used to the 17 game season. In that case, I think 10-7 or 11-6, but I don't think 11-6...
9-7 sounds about right. They might go 10-6 but that still won't be enough to make the playoffs.
I don't like what I heard as it suggests Flores will bench Tua for Brissett if he plays badly.
Who won the SB last season? Why didn't KC win? Because their O-line was dinged up.
If you've watched enough football, you should know that having an overpowering offensive line is the lynchpin to having a winning team.
The problem with this draft isn't so much who they DID draft (who all seem like very talented players) but who they COULD have drafted. If you...
Yeah, and instead of doing something risky like that, why not simply take O linemen who are already NFL ready? It's a symptom of Grier trying to...
Yep. Our front office seems to believe you can throw an offensive line together with spit and bailing wire.
Or maybe we could have just taken a WR at pick 18 or in the second round, where lots of great WRs are taken every year.
Concussions will cut short a player's career. And he's already had a couple.
I am judging Grier's drafts on the production of the players he drafts. His first round picks have mostly not produced. The team did not go 10-6...
To me, this reeks of desperation. They wanted Chase or Pitts and were convinced one of the two would fall to them, and they didn't have any good...
You first. Other teams who've drafted high have seen immediate results. Not us. And this isn't Grier's first year as GM so why is it unfair to...
Yeah, let's not judge based on results, let's judge based on our hopes and dreams. That ALWAYS works...
Agreed. It isn't that either of the guys we drafted will be busts, most likely, it's the fact we COULD have had a special player, a...
And yet I can. We should have stayed at 3 and taken Pitts or Chase. At 6, we should have taken Sewell. And if neither Waddle nor Smith was...
I don't think that's clear at all.
I don't mind the player. I question very highly the need to trade up from 12 to 6 to get him.
Trades down aren't always available. But Waddle would have been available at 12. This was a huge error.
We should have stayed at 12. Waste of a 1st round pick to trade back up.
That was not what I was hoping for. I don't believe in drafting WRs in the top 10.
I could see someone trading for him. Probably not the Fins, but maybe someone like Washington or Denver.
To me, this means exactly that Denver is moving on from Locke and wants a veteran backup. I think they're MORE likely to draft a QB now.
I don't think we are taking Smith at 6.
Simms' draft is possible. Not likely, but possible.
I have always been an advocate for drafting Sewell, so if this means we're more likely to do it, I'm good with it.
They definitely should have stayed at 12.
I wouldn't care.
The best thing you can do for a QB is give him protection. Second best thing is give him a running game.
What he said.
Unless it's Icy Hot.
And Charlie don't surf.
Why would you trust our scouting?
And most still wouldn't. If he hadn't been behind the porous line of the Bengals, he wouldn't have gotten hurt.
Everyone I talked to was.
Most of them didn't. I didn't know anyone at the time that wanted Culpepper more than Brees.
Yeah, that's what we call a "straw man argument." It's not true. You're setting up a straw man to make you look correct, but you're not. Yes, a...
I think everyone was upset that it was Ted Ginn, Brady Quinn or no. Ginn was a mediocre player who wasn't worth a first-round pick and everyone...
I already said, if we get that 2022 first rounder back, I'm okay with it. But I doubt we will.
No, if they get a first rounder back, I will be satisfied. Not HAPPY, because I wasn't crazy about trading down, but we got a good deal from the...
Usually, what the fans wanted made more sense than what the Dolphins front office has wanted.
There is a LOT wrong with giving up value for nothing. Which is what we will have done if we trade back down. We had two extra first round...
Trading back down would be such a Dolphin move. Stupid and irrelevant. We HAD the 12th pick and an extra first rounder next year and we gave it...
Sounds stupid. The only way I'd consider it anything BUT stupid is if Chase, Smith, Sewell and Pitts are already all gone, which won't happen....
No RBs in the first round IMHO. No CBs either. Actually, no defensive players at all in the first round if I were making the decisions. I'd go...
I don't want to trade back. If anything I'd rather trade up.
No. I'd only swap 6 for 10, 44, and their first rounder next year.
Or he could be saying that Alabama QBs suck.
You can't use the Patriots as an example BECAUSE they had Brady. Having Brady covered a multitude of sins on their offense.
Yeah, no it's not. It's how you become perpetually mediocre.
It's to our advantage if Atlanta trades that pick to someone who wants a QB. With everyone picking QBs, we'd have a better chance of taking who...
IMHO, getting rid of talented players is the chief way to keep rebuilding forever.
It also likely takes them out of the running to trade up from the 8th spot if a QB drops to 6th.
2021 NFL consensus mock draft: How the internet is projecting the first round...
Bad idea. Retain talent, don't get rid of it.
Why the hell would we get rid of Gisecki just because we drafted Pitts?
I wouldn't be too disappointed if we threw a third-round pick at him. I doubt he'll be there by then, though. I think someone takes a flyer on...
There'll be a WR available. Maybe not one of the big 3 or 4, but someone.
If Sewell is there and we don't pick him, that's a clear screw-up.
Atlanta picks ahead of us.
If that happens, then it means trading back up was also truly idiotic.
Trading down again after trading back up would be truly idiotic.
Well, I am sure Wilson will take a season to get his stuff straightened out, but eventually, yeah. That's what all these people talking about "we...
I thought we should pick him at 3. If he's there at 6, it's a no-brainer.
Yeah, I agree. I think he goes between 9-12.
Well, as Avril Lavigne once said, "so much for my happy ending..."
I am, in general, a big fan of trading up and not at all a fan of trading down. So yeah, if someone is there at 11-15 that we want, I say go for it.
And I sure as hell don't want Jacoby Brisset as our starting QB.
If the team does well, I'm very happy. I was happy with the 10 win season. That doesn't mean I automatically think every move the front office...
Yeah, if you KNOW he's gonna be Gronk. But unfortunately, we don't. He could be a huge bust and that's awfully early to take a TE. I don't even...
It's a HUGE gamble. I like Mac Jones...as a second rounder. Maybe late first if someone already has their key positions filled. But third...
I don't blame him. I don't like Trey Lance.
Oh, that's a downright lie. We've had several people say he sucks and is going to be a bust and one guy even criticized him for being so...
His ceiling has been established. He's made the SB and won it five years after being drafted. He hasn't reached that level again in the last 10,...
I wanted Sewell at 3, so I'd jump all over that at 6.
Rodgers is a great QB. But if he were drafted as a rookie in 2020, he wouldn't take his first team to the SB because no one gets that kind of...
I did, because all of this is, by definition, my opinion. You can feel free to disagree or ignore it, but you don't get to tell me I don't have a...
If Tua doesn't succeed here for whatever reason, he won't be here in 7 years.
Brees as a ceiling IS horrible if you don't have the right tools and the right coaching around him. Because Brees, HOF QB that he is, only took...
No, you're the one missing the point. A rookie QB having too many INTs doesn't mean that much. A rookie QB not winning a lot of games doesn't...
And that's what we should do. If that's what we actually do, I will be surprised. I have a nasty feeling that the FO is going to think to itself...
It doesn't need to be explained to me. You've simply arrogated yourself into the roll of thinking you have the capability of explaining it to me.
Umm...dude, you did notice that Tannehill spent 7 years of mediocrity with this team and then went somewhere else, right? And that he only...
Everyone knew before they went in the draft that Elway and Manning were going to be great pro QBs. They struggled with INTs, but they never once...
Sorry, bub. You don't get to tell me what proper perspective is. I've been watching this team since the early 70s. I will decide what the...
Everyone knows we're going to keep him one or two more years. That's clear now. The question is whether that was a good idea or not. No one is...
No, it doesn't. Brees is his ceiling. His floor is quite a bit lower. And you have no argument.
You're ridiculous. You disagree with my assessment of Tua? Fine. There's room for disagreement. To say it's impossible to assess a QB from...
No, I am not off the mark for any of what I've said about Tua. You're simply in denial. Tua may be a good QB. A serviceable QB who can take our...
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
I want Flores restraining him from slinging it 50 times a game. I don't want him restraining himself.
Your thinking is mired in mediocrity. I don't want a "solid veteran." I want a top-tier QB who can carry a team. That's what we thought we were...
Stats don't tell everything in a rookie QB. To quote Bill Belichick, stats are for losers. QBs who are going to be great show something in even...
Look, the bottom line on Tua is, we're stuck with him now. We had the chance to draft or trade for someone potentially better and the FO decided...
First of all, it has nothing to do with the wins. If Tua had played like Herbert and Burrow but the rest of the team played poorly and we won six...
I'd rather listen to myself for twelve hours than listen to you spew that nonsense for one more minute.
Most people here don't hate Tua. That's how people who defend him blindly like to put it because they don't have any real argument so they have...
If Tua doesn't develop into a stud QB, we'll be looking up at the Bills for the next ten years.
So, you think he has no input on draft picks?
I'm starting to worry that's exactly what they'll do. It would be incredibly stupid IMHO but Flores is a defensive guy so I wouldn't put it past...
If Sewell is still there by some miracle, you take him. If not, then I guess Chase.
Sewell and Waddle in the first round. I don't think we'll be able to get Sewell at 6 though.
No, but neither was considered to be taken as high as we took them. And it's one thing to take a project when you have an established vet at that...
I have a horrible feeling that the Dolphins are going to draft a defensive player at 6 now.
It's the result I WAS expecting. Which was why I thought it was a mistake.
According to who? The people who drafted them?
Yeah, that's the thing. He IS a project and we SHOULDN'T have taken him there.
Well, that's the thing. We drafted two tackles last year who were regarded by many to be reaches at where they were picked. They haven't really...
Yeah you're ignoring the context of the question and the answer.
Yeah, the possibility of them doing something that stupid worries me. I do not trust them not to screw up the first round. I think they already...
Yes, because that would have made the third overall pick twice as valuable since Wilson would be available. If there was a chance that the Jets...
I don't think we were ever going to take Pitts at 3. Maybe Chase, but I don't think even Chase was worth a top 3 pick. If we weren't going to...
Well, I've explained it twice. If you don't agree, that's one thing, but you should understand it.
If we're committed to Tua, we need to build a damn good O line to help him out and Sewell would have been a keystone of that line. "With the...
I wanted Sewell and I think we're going to regret passing up a chance to get him.
I'm not sure I like this. In fact, I'm pretty sure I don't. I would rather have stayed at 3 or traded down to 4 if and only if it was someone we...
I can understand and appreciate trading back with the 9ers. I do not understand trading back up.
There are few things I give less of a crap about than Dan Orlovsky's opinion.
That's a lie.
I hope we do wind up taking him at three.
Warm body. Not much else.
The lack of a hip?
We'd better draft a center.
If we're not careful, we're going to be riding third in the East this year instead of second.
And in an added little detail, apparently the lawyer for the masseuse is an acquaintance of Bob McNair...
Meh. I guess he's okay as a backup. Nothing I would get excited about.
We didn't decide he sucks, we decided he wasn't a top-tier, game-changing QB and that was what we wanted with the fifth overall pick.
No, they're based on my judgment from watching him play. You don't think I'm right and I don't care. I could tell from watching Josh Allen his...
No, it didn't, and if you had any interest in being honest, you'd admit that it didn't. What it says is that if the Dolphins want to be a SB...
They're all rookies the first year, you just have to be sure they're the right rookie. You can't actually be trying to argue, in this day and...
The lol is the most intelligent part of that post. How does drafting a QB anywhere make them a SB contender? By drafting the right one.
If this team is serious about making a run for a SB, they need to either trade for Watson or draft a QB at 3.
On the other side of that coin, the Dolphins have historically been one of the teams that gives both coaches and quarterbacks WAAAAYY too much...
Watson. He's a known quantity.
I wouldn't care. I'd be more ticked about trading Howard.
Sorry, but that's a poor recollection of Fiedler's situation. It wasn't just that he didn't throw much. When he did throw, he threw poorly.
Why didn't they draft Drew Brees? Morons.
Why didn't they draft Aaron Rodgers? Morons.
There are more, but those two stick out. And those...
If he'd gone after a better QB, we would have. Fiedler was an anchor around our neck.
This is the only article I could find:...
It was on TV, but I did see a headline a little bit ago. Trying to find it.
We could call them the Catastrophic Injury Recovery Bros.
I believe he said the Broncos were interested in him, but Fitz had decided to hang it up.
John Clayton is saying Fitz is going to retire.
Or we keep Tua and he doesn't work out and Lawrence has a hall of fame career. Those things happen, too. They've already happened to the Fins,...
This isn't the same NFL as it was under Marino.
There has been hope around our team before, man, since Marino. We won a playoff game in 2000. I was there. We had another playoff appearance in...
You should be impressed. It requires devoting decades of your life to following a team that has never seemed to get it quite right for the last...
Tua does not suck. I never said he did. What I have said and will continue to say unless and until he proves me wrong, is that he does not have...
That the Dolphins did NOT find a superstar QB in Tua and that, if they have the chance to get one (in Watson), they need to.
I still cringe when I think we wasted the best years of his career. 2002, we had the leading rusher (Williams), leading sacker (JT), leading...
Naw, not really. I'm more worried that Flores learned the wrong lessons from Belichick, that high-dollar veterans are disposable and should be...
No, I don't consider it to be part of an ascendancy. I consider it a good sign that Flores is a good coach, but we had a better record the year...
Tua, the #3 overall, the #18 overall and a first next year.
Not surprising that the homers don't understand what everyone looking at it from an objective angle can see easily.
Wrong again. You'd think you'd be tired of it by now. We don't know we're in an ascendancy until we maintain it. One good season doesn't mean...
I don't mind you being a bad speller. But the message board has a spell check feature, at least when you're using it on a computer.
And yes, I do...
No, I did address his post. You chose to ignore that because you have no argument. I addressed the parts I had a problem with. If I didn't...
Kellen Mond is way overrated. Or at least he was as a college QB. Unless he's a better pro than he was a college QB, he's not worth taking.
First of all, it's "whiners." Second, posts on a message board don't win or lose anything. Players and coaches do that.
No, we have a team...
I don't think Jordan Love is necessarily better than Tua, or at least he hasn't shown it yet. The other two definitely are.
You probably are.
I remember all too well how quickly Dolphins' fans come to the defense of indefensible QBs and coaches.
I may be wrong about Tua, but nothing he...
It doesn't matter what other teams do or have to do. The question is, did WE have to do this? Our cap situation isn't so horrible that we have...
I don't like or trust Grier. He's shown me no reason to respect his talent evaluation skills so far. I think we still don't have a top-tier...
I don't trust Grier at all.
Huh. Maybe he's one of the guys who leaked anonymously to the press that he preferred Fitz over Tua.
This is just stupid. Typical Dolphins' front office BS. Instead of filling holes, we create new ones.
ROFL! As bad as a lot of front offices do in the draft, he'd probably do just as well as they have.
I think Brian Flores is capable of winning in this league with a game manager. But that doesn't mean we wouldn't be better off with someone more...
I don't see how you can be so sure of that. All the evidence points to him not being a game-changer. You can have faith all you want, but people...
It's not up to me to give him a chance, that's on the front office and the coach. I'm telling you what my judgement is as of now. Maybe I'm...
Tua will never be more than a game manager.
Watson is not going to be a Texan next season. If we don't do what we need to do in order to trade for him, the Jets will. Then we can deal with...
I hope we don't do that. We need to draft at least one and hopefully 2 WRs in the first couple rounds.
No, 4 1st round picks are not a sure thing. Teams bust on high first round picks all the time. We busted on a third overall with Deion Jordan not...
Your idea of what is an acceptable price may be and likely is different from the idea the front office has.
Yeah, that's the whole point. We don't know what Tua is going to be. We KNOW what Watson is. He's a KNOWN quantity, with known talent. I'd...
Yeah, an article from last January, before anyone had seen him play post-injury is just about meaningless.
It's freaking February. Do we really have to criticize Justin Herbert for taking a day off to play golf in FEBRUARY???
Jeez Burney looks like a freaking hobbit.
Yeah, he did, but I am not as worried about an OL doing that as I am a WR.
Agreed. Which is why I'd take Sewell if he's available.
Not blaming him, just saying that drafting a guy that high who hasn't played a game in a year, which may mean he is incredibly rusty, bothers me.
Chase looks better on paper, but it bothers me he didn't play this year.
But should he get any credit for that? I don't think the weaknesses Tua showed are things that can be chalked up to rust or lack of preparation....
I'd rather have Smith than Chase.
Hell with the Superbowl, I want tomorrow's lottery numbers!
Maybe, maybe not. You certainly don't know.
Well, he would be the last to know, most likely.
Why? You have no idea what's going to happen any more than the rest of us. Watson may very well stay where he is and not go anywhere, but if he...
Maybe. But not really. No one wants to hear how tough your schedule was. The only thing that matters in the NFL is Ws.
Don't forget Snyder.
Don't ask me. When it comes to decisions as big as this, the owner almost always is the one making the final call. Hell, there are strong rumors...
I'm sure he will be consulted, but when it comes to a star QB who can put butts in the seat and make the team an instant SB contender, then I...
That decision will probably be made above the pay grade of the coach.
This is idiotic. I have very little hope this is going to work. It feels like they just gave up.
I think if Houston tries to get this outrageous four first-round picks some people are talking about that they're simply going to wind up not...
The thing that sucks, though, is if the FO gets it wrong, we will have blown our best chance to get a star QB. We have a huge amount of draft...
Who the hell is Deshawn Jackson?
I think Fields is going to be a bust.
Yeah, my statement is not contingent on what the Texans will accept, it's what we should give, and any trade that involves us giving both our...
I wouldn't do it. We need to keep that 18th pick. We need a number one WR.
I wouldn't be shocked if the Lions try to trade up into the first three picks for a QB now.
I wouldn't trade with Washington. Too far down the list.
Tua would have had to already start to have a progression like Allen's. Allen's biggest problem his first season was that he threw a lot of...
Oh really? Allen has been there for years and years? Because I could have sworn that he was in his third year in the NFL and that he'd started...
The Rams don't have a first rounder this year.
Apparently the Rams thought Stafford was impressive enough to give up 2 1st rounders, a 3rd rounder and Jared Goff for him.
We can get a good WR in this draft, as long as we don't overpay for Watson. Another in free agency and you can always get an RB in the later rounds.
We were a playoff contender this year. One win away from it. You don't think Watson could get us one more win?
Stafford is a talented QB. I'm not sure if he fits with the offense we're running, but he's a better QB than anyone we've had on our roster since...
I totally agree. I have nothing against Tua, and it's possible he will in a few years be a very good QB. But he's not, not right now. And this...
I wouldn't pay much. He's getting up there and prone to injury.
As long as we only give up one of our two first rounders this year, I am all for it. If they want both our first rounders, I'd say no. We have...
I'd take that deal.
The point is, the best WR and RB talent can usually be had later in the first round, like with that 18th pick we have. I think drafting a WR at 3...
Take a look at the teams who were in the conference championship games. Take a look at their WRs and RBs. How many were drafted in the top 5?...
Trading down would make me nervous. I'd much rather we take Sewell and then grab a WR at 18. Then maybe another WR in the second, and an LB in...
I used to think I hated Brady, but I really just resented him because he was with the Pats. I've always hated Belichik though, clear back to when...
I would be utterly shocked if that happened. If the Jets don't take a QB, then they'll trade that pick to someone who will.
ROFL! Like the Chiefs need some sort of motivation to try to win the SB! LOL!
And for every Diggs, there's a dozen who never pan out. FA WRs are a huge gamble.
Not going to subscribe to read the whole article, but Watson isn't a bad QB.
I'd rather take my chances with a draft pick. I dislike signing big-money free agent WRs or RBs.
Brady winning a title would be the ultimate backhand to Belichik. I'm rooting for him.
I don't think I ever believed at any point this season that the Bills were a better team than the Bucs. Honestly, I've thought they were...
By definition it is not unfair. Every team whose city hosts a SuperBowl has the same opportunity for a home SB in that year. Miami has hosted...
Only 22,000 people are attending. Tickets are even harder to get and more expensive this year than ever. And if the Superbowl is in your home...
No, it's a judgment of his physical tools. He's not going to get taller, nor will his frame support a lot more muscle without losing mobility.
I'd take Sewell at 3.
I'd take Smith, given those choices. But my real preference is to wait until #18 to take a WR.
Whatever. No point in arguing with you if you're going redefine your terms to match your opinion.
Yeah no, they were not considered average by the teams who traded for them. And Brad Johnson had more to do with the Bucs winning their SB than...
That's in hindsight. At the time, those QBs were considered to be franchise QBs. And Brad Johnson won a SB.
I don't think the Patriots will be going back to the SB for a long time, long after Brady retires.
If any of them offer to give up a first-rounder for him, they do.
It's not an assumption, it's a judgment based on what we've seen so far.
In a QB-poor 2022 draft where we have a much lower pick. Bad plan.
Get real. The Niners, the Broncos, the team formerly known as the Redskins, the Eagles, the Bears, the Patriots...
Well, you ain't getting it. Brady is in his 10th SB.
Stafford has been on a very bad team and still done better than he should have.
I'd take Stafford and #7 for our #3.
If Seattle offers Dorsey a job, I think he'll take it. Just my guess.
Shoot, Russel Wilson vs Tua? I know which I would consider a better job.
He was on a much better team than Josh Rosen, with a better coach. But yeah, Josh Rosen was a reach where he was picked, too.
Burrow is also 6'4". Hmm.
He also used to be at Ohio State, so he's a unicorn in a lot of ways.
If the QB you draft in the first round is more talented, then you start him and get rid of Tua. Hanging onto a QB that may be good in two or...
Is it? Or does it mean that any QB who is a good athlete can run an offense like OSU's surrounded by some of the best talent in the nation? Same...
Ohio State QBs have a horrible track record.
I think the likeliest outcomes is that the Texans WILL keep Watson. The only way he can really force them to trade him is if he retires.
Damn. I was hoping for a Chiefs-Bucs superbowl.
It's what most fans are hoping for, too.
It doesn't matter what THEY view as the better option though. If Watson doesn't want to go to the Jets, then there's no trade.
They can't trade Garoppolo without his consent until 22.
His main goal is to go a team where he can win. He might go to Indy, but I just don't see Indy making the trade. Pittsburgh has the 24th overall...
I think our choice is between a second-year QB who MIGHT improve to the level of a consistent starter and someone who is a proven top-tier...
