Separate names with a comma.
Probably doesn’t change the result, but frustrating because this is not a catch…
In general good fight shown by the team.
Hung in this...
I’m not going to pretend to know much.
But the fact that after the injury he didn’t know what happened and was asking McDaniel what the result of...
Looked too easy during that drive… until we shot ourselves in the foot.
Edmonds ‘hands’ are becoming a problem.
2 blatant TD drops in 2 weeks.
This signing is really paying dividends early.
It’s wild that...
Armstead and Little are both banged up.
3 guys in the secondary are banged up.
We need active player depth at OL and CB.
It’s a short week in...
‘Old talking heads like Rex Ryan will rely on old school game metrics. And fail to comprehend ‘how’ Miami won.
‘Buffalo dominated the game’...
My main grief with what I’m seeing the last two weeks….
When we are facing mobile quarterbacks (Allen/Jackson etc) and have a free rusher in his...
Head to head metrics from yesterday;
Tua - 123.8
Exactly and just last week half of this board was BEGGING for Bridgewater to replace Tua at halftime. (I know you weren’t one of them Dupree)....
I clearly acknowledged (twice) the possible interception and pointed out it was very bad…
Yet of course you are refusing to acknowledge those...
A deeper look into Tua’s week 3 performance;
Actual: 13-18 for 186 YDS/1 TD/0 Int.
10.3 Yards per attempt.
Anybody with eyes (even the haters)...
That 4th quarter defense was the absolute definition of bend but don’t break!!
It got ugly, but good teams find ways to win.
We might be good now...
Gotta shore up some of these drops.
Ingold and Edmonds have dropped perfect balls on big plays. Luckily that one didn’t hurt us.
Also 2 great...
Our free pass rushers need to stop jumping to try and block passes!
Damn, Focus on tackling the man .
People are about to find out exactly what Tua means to this team.
Tua looking good today.
Beautiful touch pass to Ingold early.
Absolute rocket to Cracraft for the touchdown there.
Defense is getting wrecked...
Cracraft earns another start after the TD last week.
(2-0) Buffalo Bills -5
(2-0) Miami Dolphins +5
No sugar coating this matchup.
Bills have won 7 consecutive games against Miami.
Also while I’m ranting….
Have you thought logistically what goes in to putting work on this type of ‘deep timing’ go routes.
So you want to...
Mahomes has attempted 2,500 passes in his now 6th year in the league.
He has only EVER completed 5 passes that travelled over...
I’m not one for loud hot takes.
But this is an interesting theory and you can take it further than his 3 specific examples.
The Bills went on the road and made the defending super bowl champions look like a mediocre varsity team in week 1.
On Monday night they cooked...
I can still stand by Mine…
1 second off the clock!! My word rigged
guts !!!! What a game.
new identity. We are one of those teams that is never out of a game.
Tua hangs 5 second half...
42 to the 1.5 yard line.
Tua is a Damn gunslinger!!
I said at the half he could come back !
40 to the 4 and he did not fully step into that throw.
It was a 56 yard throw from where he released it to where it was caught. He also didn’t cleanly step into that throw.
gutsy second half performance.
Clown call there by hardbaugh.
gives us actual momentum and maybe even a little confidence for our pathetic D.
decent field position and 4 down...
Atleast the offense is showing fight.
this defense is just rolling over like a dead dog.
10 yards shy of the first… after a bogus 10 yard penalty.
Like I was saying at half time…
We got ourselves a ball game.
like I said…. Now see if the defense actually wakes up on this next drive.
If we hold them to zero points on next possession, this game is very...
Game isn’t over.
Need a score to start 2nd half, followed by a defensive stop.
You could also say the exact same thing about a young Brees or Peyton Manning.
They had to make it with elite passing accuracy and...
Veteran dude who has atleast been in the fire. The practice squad had the rawest of the raw at tackle with Coleman and Kion...
Looks like they are fixing that right now.
Sean Payton enters the debate as a ‘Tua is the problem guy’.
Interesting since he was linked to Miami. And a guy Ross clearly...
This is Biggest storyline of the week to follow.
All 3 of the active tackles from week 1 are questionable for Baltimore.
A lot of people are expecting the Cowboys to act fast and find a veteran to fill in for the now injured Dak.
Lots of Garrapollo rumours. But his...
More like 33% of the time…. I would expect this is a coaches decision. Not sure you can criticize Tyreek for this, unless you saw it...
Pair the pass pro stat above with pedestrian run blocking. And we still don’t have any noticeable improvements by the offensive line....
I think he was always just insurance in case Mostert’s health was in question to start the season.
Mostert is probably going to have a bigger...
Bowden Jr. and Porter Gustin were the only ones I would have personally found room for.
So 3 more cuts to go ?
I think we keep Jenkins over Benito Jones.
Elijah Campbell over Fejedelum
And Cracraft stays as returner/WR6 over...
There you go…. Now you have seen him throw it over 60 yards in the air.
Thrown with his front lead leg on the 30. Caught inside the 10....
Would have rather allocated the resources/cap space on OL or CB depth.
but no complaints about Flowers as a player.
7PM start time. Final preseason game.
Dolphin preseason legend Reid Sinnett comes home tonight.
Any word yet on which starters will be...
Yea strange. Bills have known about this for weeks before it became public.
Seems they are willing to take on the side show negative publicity...
2 big problems for big Mike….
2) He catches the ball and falls down.
McDaniel prioritizes players who thrive at both.
Even if he...
He also bounced a nice throw off Geisiki’s face mask into tight coverage on one of those incompletions….
Also looking at UDFA Raleigh Texada. Who was initially signed by Green Bay.
Only the team knows where Byron is in his...
Cedric Wilson and Lynn Bowden stood out of offense. Tanner Conner peaked my interest a little.
The entire run game was concerning.
Very disappointing for the young man and the team.
The thing that stood out watching that preseason opener was his length and size.
I tend to agree with coach.
Bowden’s TD was an easy wide open cakewalk pass. That was a Bowden highlight. Not a Thompson highlight.
I personally like Bowden.
His biggest obstacle is the Cedric Wilson signing, because Wilson can also play a little RB and throw the ball. And...
He was underdog story here during that horrible season.
Was excited to see if he could build off that and then injuries sunk him in Miami....
Thanks. Missed that follow up.
I guess if he can pass in next couple weeks we will be able to cut him and still save most his money against the cap.
I think training camp is going well.
Some nice surprises in the secondary with Crossen and Trill Williams apparently stepping up in Jones’...
With the Shaheen trade and the Butler cut earlier this week.
This saves the Dolphins roughly 6M against the cap. A little extra change to use if...
This penalty is a joke.
Apparently the sanctity of a contract reigns supreme over all else in the NFL.
Saints; Intentionally run a racket where...
Dolphins talk at 6:00 minute mark.
To avoid 6 mins about Tom Brady at the beginning.
A little older and doesn’t offer much in the way of explosive plays.
But McDaniel is very familiar with him and he is known as a very physical...
Tua under the weather.
My only concern with this signing is what happened with him in Pittsburgh last year.
He said he wasn’t playing a big enough role and wanted to...
That defensive front line is shaping up to be a big strength and veeeerrrrryyy deep.
Edge ; Ogbah, Phillips, Van Ginkel, Ingram
I mean damn we always get an incredibly tough 4 or 5 game stretch to start the season it seems.
We HAVE to beat New England week 1 at home or it...
Ahmed - Guaranteed $0
Gaskin - guaranteed only $20K
Doaks - Guaranteed $25K
Michel - Rumored almost no guarantee, but haven’t seen...
I hope DK ensures the race is in a straight line….
Same dude that had to re-run the 3 cone AND shuttle drills to try and prove he was faster...
Sounds like Kellen Diesch got the most guaranteed money out of this group.
140K for what that is worth.
Running Back Zaquandre White South Carolina.
Early reports have Dolphins in agreements with some undrafted prospects;
OL Blaise Andries - Minnesota
CB Kader Kohou - A&M Commerce.
OT - Kellen...
I’ll watch and bet a couple draft props to make it more interesting since the Dolphins don’t pick.
I could also see the Dolphins adding an...
Haack always had good percentages pining short punts inside the 10 yard line and he was consistent.
But he could never really boom a punt the way...
Of course you’re right… guys like Tua, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees can’t make that throw.
Guys like Herbert, Baker Mayfield...
Herbert hasn’t figured out how to use his big shiny arm yet and is mostly the king of check downs.
… Some people will be devastated to hear.
Atleast it’s a better idea then all the casuals calling for a Jimmy G to Miami trade.
But Brady to Miami is not happening.
Saves over 2.5M against the cap. With basically no dead money. That’s good savings for a RB who is competing to be 3rd string at best.
Fejedelum restructures, so he will not likely be cut.
Surprised Gaskin hasn’t been cut.
Probably keeping him as insurance until they...
No surprise Hurns and Davis are the first to go after the big free agent/trade spending spree.
Eric Rowe, Adam Butler, Miles Gaskin,...
Considering Valdes-Scantling just got 3 years at 10M per….
Id say Parker’s 2 year at 9M per cap hit is actually a decent contract in this wideout...
What a move !!
Franchise turning point IMO.
New Modern offensive football coach with 2 of the most explosive offensive weapons in the game. Let...
Unacceptable. Eichenberg is constantly grouped in as just another ‘part of the problem’ on the offensive line. A replacement level player that...
Fair contract. About what you would expect.
Gaskin is now likely to be cut IMO.
His 2.5M salary carries almost no guaranteed...
Mostert is a big get if he is healthy. Reports are his recovery is on track.
McDaniel gets his guy.
Nice to see a big emphasis on the running...
We brought back so many of our own marginal depth free agent players…
Strange we lost Mack. He produced on special teams, was a team captain...
I think the college game has figured out the best and most fair format.
Change to those rules.
Admit they figured it out first and move forward.
The Waddle disrespect…. You hate to see it.
Who would have thought Charles Harris would go on to make a career for himself in this league.
Also Myles Jack would be an exciting signing.
And let’s not kid ourselves… Dak has always been known to hold on to the ball for faaaar too long!
Tua gets the ball out quick.
Both 1 year deals.
Surprised Williams gets another chance. He was often injured, struggled to separate, one dimensional and...
Yeah I don’t understand it.
If he gets released, I would expect him to get more than 3 years and 30M.
I see some incentive to throw Dallas a...
Guy is a separator…
I’m shocked OL still has not been addressed at all. Still some bigger names available, but list is shrinking and I think we need 2.
When you see Engram getting 10M and guys like Uzomah and Dissley getting 8M per.
This is a steal
Good price tag.
Ideally he never has to play and won’t earn any incentives.
To my point that he had a better season than Gallup;
Cedric Wilson Jr - 61 Targets
-46 catches and 74% catch rate
-602 rec YDs and 6 TD
Big upgrade over Jacoby.
One of the best backups in the league.
… If not THE best backup.
Exactly the Wideout I was hoping we would target. Fits McDaniels system perfectly. Big Yards after catch guy. Can...
Duke or Mostert would be my guess.
I guess we will still need another one. Edmunds is a committee guy and I think McDaniel knows that Gaskin is subpar.
A lot of $$$ for an undersized committee running back who has yet to break out.
At least he should have plenty of tread on the tires. 26 years...
And so it begins !
After the Ogbah signing we now need…
3 Offensive Lineman
And atleast 1 running back.
This is an important domino for the defense. Glad he is returning. Nice to see them get it done before open of free agency.
Was hoping it would...
….. Brown would know McDaniel from his time in SF.
2 month retirement ?
Not sure how plugged in this guy is. But I really hope he is right about this.
Collins and Tomlinson would go a long way to fixing that...
A lot of smoke around Mostert to the Dolphins.
Recovery is going well.
McDaniel likes him.
Probably get him at a reasonable 2.5/3M....
Yes please !
Him or Decker (if he is available) would be great
Hopefully it’s related to football/contract.
In fairness the $$ value was not the same.
10.8ish for Geisiki vs 18.5ish for Ogbah?
Also we aren’t privy to contract talks with Ogbah. They...
As good as Armstead would be…. The old saying ‘The best ability is availability’ comes to mind. I don’t want to back up the brinks truck for him...
I would think on the official paperwork filed with the NFL it says “Tight End” position on there somewhere.
If he somehow appeals and wins WR...
This is the best outcome. Keeps us flexible.
Low risk, one year deal. Below market value.
I didn’t watch any ND state. Can’t comment on Watson.
But Pickens would be perfect. Great receiver and he is a nasty blocker with an attitude....
I’ve heard Mostert was McDaniel’s guy and if he tries to bring a UFA SF running back over with him it will be Mostert.
Barkley would be a swing...
Olave to the Raiders in the 1st round…. confirmed.
Edit; Everyone to the Raiders
4.2 is the new 4.4.
He really looked the part getting to his spot and also with the ball in his hands. I think he has the talent.
Defences probably weren’t too...
The wide receiver I would really like to target is Cedric Wilson Jr !!
The guy was always open last year when you watched Cowboy games. He looked...
I agree on Nakobe Dean.
Special player and would give our defense a star caliber inside linebacker it has been lacking for years.
There is also...
Some OL data points for championship caliber teams.
Interpret however you would like….
Agreed, McDaniel’s best backs in SF were an undrafted 28 year old career special teamer (Mostert) and a 6th round rookie (Mitchell).
Dream scenario would be if Treylon Burks somehow makes it to us. Top positional need ? Maybe not. But I’m confident he is going to be a beast....
It’s been a couple years since he played in the CFL. I never saw much in him TBH.
Reid Sinnett for example was a much more interesting camp QB.
Good points, but I think people have had enough with attempting to fix O line through the draft.
It’s time to drop some serious $$$ on proven...
Good for the Steelers. I think he’ll be good in that roll. So it makes sense for them.
I supported the Dolphins firing Flores, because I didn’t...
Gadget play threat whenever he is on the field too.
If he gets the ball on a pitch or end around…. It’s tough for corners and safeties to shoot...
Move him out of the NFL…, that is funny and painful at the same time.
Mike Williams plays too much like Devante Parker. More durable, I’ll...
New coaches have a tendency to want to bring in a couple guys they are familiar with (‘There guys’).
We saw Grier was MORE than willing to do...
Who do you want ?
Both just had marathon interviews according to reports. Like it or not they appear to be the two finalists.
Most fans seem to...
Bellicheat in peak grandpa texting form.
I cant stop laughing at this convo.
He WON the games the fans and owner wanted him to LOSE!!
He LOST the big games that the owner and Fans wanted him to WIN!!
Technically he is correct.
What the Giants did is racist.
The only reason NYG interviewed him is because of the colour of his skin… the NFL...
Absolutely I’m sold. McDermott is a defensive coach. I think all credit for the Buffalo offense and Allen hitting his full potential goes to...
I think you may be a little optimistic on the Ogbah number. I’m expecting north of 11M.
You’re Hollins number is probably spot on. That’s about...
How dare the media not be honest…
Here is how I want the team to approach our in house free agent class;
OGBAH- Lock him up for 3 years. He has been the key to...
And now we find out Flores told Tua the Dolphins should have drafted Mac Jones.
Great way to ostracize both of your most important players on...
Too early to tell.
Team has a boatload of cap space for free agency this off-season. Could be a much different team come april.
He is just going to buy off his accusers?
I hope he does settle all the civil suits against him. (So they get money).
But they prosecute him...
Chicago trying to be ‘Dolphins North’.
Some have flopped (re Gase!)
But when you look at current playoff teams… there are more than a few examples of ‘young, offensive minded’ hires...
Now we are interviewing Vance Joseph ?
What ? They aren’t firing Saleh.
Flores isn’t taking a D coordinator job with the Jesters.
First official request I’ve heard from Fins…
This Draft class is weak at QB.
Watson is an actual creep. Could be suspended. He would cost a ton of Salary cap space and a boatload of draft...
Not sure why Grier survived. His firing would have been justified too.
I guess he can say he knocked it out of the park with Waddle, Phillips...
Channel the energy you had following the Buffalo beat down of 2020.
Now throw on the flaming mess of the music city meltdown in 2021.
Pour on 3...
What is wrong with Jim Caldwell?
Experienced head coach.
Won in Detroit and nobody wins in Detroit.
Had a 14-2 season in Indy.
Every single superstar top draft pick has an idea of how they would like to play and what they would like to do with their career.
It’s up to the...
The org is preaching that ‘failed relationships’ or inability to build relationships is the reason they don’t want Flores back. And I actually...
I saw tweets indicating Tua’s finger was fine and was never in question. It said Tua was golfing the Monday after he ‘injured’ the finger. In...
I saw Lynn Bowden Jr. was upset on Twitter. He may or may not be a Dolphin player.
He quickly deleted the tweet.
You were absolutely right.
I couldn’t have been more wrong.
That is all.
=30.7 Million in cap designated to veteran wide receivers.
They only played 23 games...
… And of course they flag Parker.
Parker plays with no emotion… so for him to be upset about a call. That is saying something.
53 yards in the weather….
Easily makes it from 45, if Tua doesn’t take that sack.
Special teams has been brutal.
Make a fair catch outside the 10 yard line!
Ball bounced at the 13.
Nothing he could do.
Recovery has to be clear and obvious. That was anything but obvious.
Duke Johnson is ripping 7 yards per carry if anyone is looking for positives…
It should be a 1 score game.
10-3 at the half with any sort of competent officiating.
and admittedly that was a gawd awful half of football from...
Refs gifted them 7 there….
That PI call should have been on the offense!
A No call at the very least. Just egregious.
Brutal PI call there ?? WTH !
Where is the false start there !?!?
Everything has gone wrong and it’s a one score game.
Only a matter of time until our defense gets a turnover in this weather.
Run game looks OK...
Seems to be worth a shot….
It is pouring cold rain.
This is a running game.
Coaching staff needs to wake up.
Palady with another net 29 yard punt.
Neither offense has done anything. But their special teams have them dominating field position.
Simms triples down on his clown take.
Anything to throw shade at Tua.
He is all of a sudden a big Tannehill fan ??
It’s basically a...
So who can run the ball better featuring Duke Johnson and Philip Lindsay versus D’Onta Foreman and Jeremy McNichols.
Exactly how I...
I’m not saying Miami has beaten the best of the best, but I think you are sorely misreading the Titans. Buffalo beat down incoming ?
Tua vs Tannehill ??
What a hornets nest for the moderators…
My main and most obvious takeaway from this game is that Waddle is an absolute rockstar.
What does everyone think the running back splits are going to look like tmrw ?
Im thinking 60-20-20.
With Duke getting the bulk of the snaps....
At the very least I’m implying we dodged a bullet!!!
A LOT of people wanted to stay at 3 and select one of these QBs.
Meanwhile there is a strong...
Mills has been just fine.
86.2 QBR and most 300 passing yard games among all rookie QBs.
Considering the disaster he is working with in Houston...
Steelers putting up zero resistance.
Nothing more than a speed bump the CHeifs are running over.
If Tua comes out sharp. I like our chances.
Wasn’t his best game against the Jets, but I think he’ll bounce back here.
Ian Book was always more...
Bills beating Patriots at half
Cincy beating Ravens at half.
both good things.
surprisingly the Texans are playing the Chargers hard today!!...
Atleast our guy completes ALL short passes
Has an elite quick release.
Rarely gets sacked.
And wins games.
A frustrating W and lots to clean up going forward.
But a big W none the less !!!!!!!!!!!!
Change of possession 1st down timeout….
Followed by that play?
Barf. Double barf
You need 2 inches and have been running the ball great all day.
in what world do the coaches think a trick fake punt was more high...
I don’t usually bet Dolphins games.
But I just live bet Dolphins +1.5 during half time.
What about waiting 8 seconds to call that timeout ? Why ?
He has looked strong.
Interesting 1st and goal sequence.
3 straight passes. Johnson got no looks.
I didn’t like that.
I was thinking about pouring myself a rye.
(But we’re still going to win)
That hurts my soul.
but we are still winning this game !
What happens if the Raiders have a handful of players test positive on Monday?
they will not reschedule these games again....
He only signed for 1 year anyways.
Given his long injury history, I’m sure any team with interest in him going forward would only sign him to a...
During the current 5 game win streak… the Jets actually scored the most points against our defense (17). Flacco looked competent in...
Duke Johnson elevated for this game.
AFC East rival Jets are coming to Miami this Sunday with a 3-10 record. They are coming off a loss at home to the N.O. Saints and Chris Simms’...
Still better than Malcolm Brown.
I’m fairly certain of that.
Still no guarantee for Doaks.
Duke Johnson is kicking around and now Old man Miller is in town. I’d like to see Doaks myself.
edit; I think...
No return in sight. Still not practicing.
Lindsay too now.
I guess Doaks is completely unusable at this point… weird considering they keep protecting him from poaching.
Tua Would have been over 80% again today, if not for the 4 drops.
This team simply can’t catch… or run… or block anyone for that matter....
Just put on the Sunday nighter and considered that it will probably be better for Dolphins if Broncos lost.
So I guess I’m at least...
Looks like it won’t be Jones at all.
No he does not. Their receivers are all banged up and questionable. Saquon is permanently banged up.
And our D is just too good right now!
A lot of mentions of ‘the slow start.’
It should read slow STARTS.
As long as Flores is coach of this franchise, the team will have to finish...
For what it’s worth….
Mark Ingram is a career 4.5 YPC
In Houston this year he averaged 3.2 YPC
Since returning to the Saints, averaging 4.6 YPC...
Exactly, this Herbert narrative is easy for the detractors.
But look at this QB draft class.
Lawrence - A disaster so far, their own brass...
“Chan Gailey is still calling the plays from the tunnel, in an effort to ruin Tua.” -TuAnon
Interesting new facts coming to light here.
This would be a truly humiliating home loss.
Probably out vs Houston.
Job security for the Dolphins Physio staff who work on hamstrings…
With Baker’s current injury, we could do worse (Duke Riley)
Anything from Schefter should be considered official. Guess this is finally put to bed…. For now.
Not sure about that source.
I would hold off on the cartwheels.
Cameron Wolfe is speaking live on NFL net right now and giving a Dolphins...
It was nice that Parker got out there and showed he was healthy and actually looked good against a tough Bills defense.
We’ll see if that leads...
Potential was there.

Good for him, it’s been a long road.

Why was Flores so mad and swearing at the refs at the end?
Everything seemed legit on that last Falcons drive. Did I miss something ?
A lot of weird things happening on D.
Rowe was great last year and was breaking up everything in preseason. Yet he looses his job easily to a min...
Aside from the Tua/Watson talk (which is in other threads)….
What are you hoping to see the Dolphins do at the trade deadline ?
You really have to wonder if this is just going to be cruel and cold fate of Dolphins fans repeating itself!
With a Tua trade now seemingly very...
For the first time since the Watson rumours started… I actually believe the deal is close.
The Tua rumours are Running wild on Twitter right...
Any defense of Flores is pure lunacy.
1) His decision making is trash. Going for it on 4th down in OT yesterday. Running trash Malcolm Brown...
Perfect opportunity for Malcolm Perry…
IF we didn’t cut him so we could roster Albert Wilson.
I’d consider moving him to the press box aswell… Young underdeveloped player who may need a few weeks to regroup during practice and find...
If he is even capable of snapping the ball directly to the quarterback it would be an instant upgrade.
As you should be, He is the 5th highest paid backup quarterback in the league this year.
He is the 8th highest paid player on the Dolphins...
Flores also really wanted Patriots re tread Brissett as our back up QB this season… I wouldn’t say he is a QB picking savant.
Here is an absolute head scratcher from the Indy game…
Gaskin only played 23% of our offensive snaps. 23%!!
Malcolm Brown sucks, it’s as simple...
As desperate as we may be…
Do you think you would actually enjoy cheering for DeShaun Watson ?
So everyone on here is happy to analyze Watson from a wins/losses standpoint?
From a fair trade value standpoint ?
From a suspension...
And I want a coach who won’t throw a cross field screen pass 5 yards deep in their own endzone !!
Sometimes you don’t get what you want. But you...
If you like screen plays and draws the 1st 3 quarters must have been heaven for you.
Also not enough talk about that play call on the safety....
One of Grier’s huge systemic failures has been drafting ‘project’ players with high value picks.
Noah I and Austin Jackson were said by our own...
This is a bad idea for so many reasons.
A bad/mediocre team trading a boatload of picks for a player facing a large suspension (for any reason)...
Please no more Patriots retreads.
We desperately need someone to sit down with Flores and convince him there is actual NFL talent in the league...
Tua publicly said he could play through the pain and wanted to start against Vegas.
(Before being put on IR)
Im guessing he didn’t have much say...
If week 1 is any indication, Geisiki is being completely phased out of this offense.
0 catches is one thing, but He only played 39% of offensive...
Wow, credit where it’s due. Great play by Jamal Perry on 3rd down!
Malcolm Perry doing some punt returning.
I mean Allen Robinson isnt playing right now in this game. But to be clear… you would want him? He is one of the best in the game.
Can a rookie count as a breakout ?
I think Holland is going to hit the ground running and be a big time player.
And that’s it for Tua after 1st quarter…
Tough INT but he looked looser moving around and more comfortable releasing the ball and...
Grant shaking and baking on that return.
So far he has been back for all 3 returns.
Tua is looking sharp early.
Geisiki is involved.
Gaskin is looking solid.
Brown is consistently getting stuffed and gumming up the offense a bit....
It was all my old agents fault.
That’s why I fired him.
Now the Dolphins won’t give me what I want.
But I dont want to hold out for my principle...
Exactly. He is more of a package guy.
Last year he was playing the slot in 3 wide packages. With Wilson and Hurns opting out... There was no...
Very interesting read.
His versatility is off the charts.
His broken tackle rate last year was obscene.
Look forward to him having a role in...
Geseiki is a slot reciever with a TE designation because he takes a few snaps a game inline. His contract should be negotiated as if he were a...
We have youth at every single position on the roster.
The rebuild is over. We don’t even possess our own 1st round pick next year. It’s ok to...
Not a fan of Kerryon, so I’m glad Fins didn’t win the claim.
But interesting news... guess brass aren’t content at RB.
Week 7 matchup is ugly.
Fins coming back from England week 6.
Falcons coming off a bye week 6.
If the Falcons are even half way decent this...
This has been the main problem with Flores since he got the job.
Both years he broke camp with a team completely unprepared for NFL game action....
Ugh don’t like this.
Flores obsession with Patriots guys from his days there is growing old.
I think this is like the 14th guy they’ve signed...
I think you’re missing the argument.
Analytics are saying Running BACKS don’t matter. They are not saying the running GAME doesn’t matter.
All the best to this man in the future!
Ultimate team guy. Never took a play off. Played injured. Played out of position when asked. Never...
I’m just connecting the dots.
The team seems to love him and his ‘type’.
Lynn Bowden is a lock to make this team. Brass are infatuated with him. All the stories pre draft about how badly we wanted him. We missed on...
Doubt he will be that expensive.
ACL, MCL, hip and Achilles’ tendon injuries. Major injury issues.
But McCain and Rowe are expensive and safety...
They seem to have really targeted Robert Jones. But not much to get excited about with this list.
Live look at McCain and Rowe...
Doaks overall Relative Athletic Score (RAS) is better than Javonte Williams.
Doaks Burst score was through the roof. (127.2 = 87th percentile)...
Thought I’d fan the flames a bit and point out this Javonte Williams/#36 report. It’s out there. True ? I doubt it!
It comes from a...
I haven’t heard them say.
But he played both in college.
Fuller also plays out of the slot and gets moved around.
Parker is an outside guy....
Zero drops, zero fumbles, blocks well AND Grier points out he plays special teams.
Coaches type player. And the special teams...
Gaskin - 7th rd (43K guaranteed)
Ahmed - UDFA (0.00 guaranteed)
Laird - UDFA (3K Guaranteed)
Brown - FA (1.5M Guar)
Doaks - 7th rd (?100k?)
Good record lately in the 7th.
Last 4 have all made the team and been used some;
I would say 2...
I like this attitude !
Easiest way to win coach over.
“He has some absurd contact balance and...
2nd longest arms in the draft.
Never a bad thing for a tackle.
Some interesting RBs left that produced big last year.
A couple gadgety ones like Pooka...
Nailed this breakdown.
We could add an RB, depth at Linebacker or Center and guys who profile as special teamers.
I like linebackers Justin Hilliard Ohio State or Dylan...
I like Chuba Hubbard and Jermar Jefferson... but admittedly they aren’t well rounded backs. And didn’t test the greatest. But they run the ball...
Geisiki only played about 63% of offensive snaps last year.
Geisiki was lined up in the slot 66% of the time he was on field. (Highest of any...
Dude looks skinnier than Devonta Smith.
Another cover safety who can’t help in the run game. I guess we have a type. Should have Just drafted Samuels Jr and converted him....
Grab Ojulari !!
Ignoring positional need.
Id say Asante Samuels, Ojulari, E. Moore and Dickerson (risky!) are the highest upside talents on the board.
We’ve got 24 hours to pound the table on who we want at 36 and 50. What are you thinking we need after adding Waddle and Phillips ?
Some of the...
UDFA rookie James Robinson out produced every single RB that got drafted last year and took a former top 10 pick RBs job.
That would be the...
This brass has never shown they value the RB position.
They appear to be following modern analytics on the position. I agree with this...
“There is a significant wrist injury as well, which...
I second this ! Those two specifically and no RBs.
Also please Not Owusu-Komoroah from Notre Dame... Linebacker/safety/no position!
Paye, Ojulari, Collins, Phillips ?
Are we about to get our evaluators choice of pass rushers ?
Im fine with that !
I think the Patriots look desperate this off-season. Mac Jones. Haha
This has some credibility for sure.
Tony Pauline said before the draft that Miami traded out of #3 because they didn’t want the risk of drafting...
I’m fine with the Patriots getting Mac Jones. Lol
Glad they didn’t get Fields.
More worried they might draft Paye away from us!
What if they are all injured ?
Maybe one more excuse up his sleeve.
I’m not upset about the pick or anything. He has a chance to be a huge playmaker.
But I’m not going to lie, it didn’t feel like a big win....
Have you heard the reports that Phillips arm/wrist will never be fully operational again after the moped accident?
It didn’t slow him down at all...
Earlier reports were they were really trying to move into top 21 and get Caleb Farley.
Now today kicking tires on top 10 for Surtain/Horn I...
I’ve been seeing this for a couple days.
Worth considering if the board is dry at 18. Wouldn’t be a fan of a trade like this pre draft....
DJ just submitted his final draft....One of...
6 - Pass Catcher (Waddle)
18 - Edge (Paye/Collins/Ojulari)
36- O Line (Leatherwood/Cosmi/Dickerson)
The Mel Kiper one is hilarious because it still applies today... even after 27 years as a TV draft analyst, He still isn’t thought of as a good...
Looking more and more like a reality.
In a scenario where Chase is already gone. I wonder if Cincy has any interest in Pitts at 5... or if it become default lineman for...
For the Dolphins specifically?
Those two players are very possible.
Chris Simms with an ‘interesting’ one.
The ridiculous Justin Fields slide will get people talking. But the rest isn’t too crazy.
I agree that this doesn’t necessarily effect the 6 pick. I think 36 becomes the sweet spot to grab an O lineman.
Could climb into 1st round;...
Initially surprised. I thought Flowers was solid last year.
But I think the organization views Kindley as a great player and cornerstone for the...
Now we really, really, need IOL.
We're doubling up this draft, or we're going Sewell and...
The number of trades is impressively outrageous.
We don’t pick at 6, 18, 36, 50 or 81.
Who does that?
From one of the most accurate Mock Drafters the past few years.
Also the Giants have taken Georgia players in each of the last 2 1st...
I probably shouldn’t be laughing at your medical condition. But that’s hilarious.
Fields looks like a monster and 2nd best QB in draft. Hoping...
If this plays out. Pick 4 has to be a pass catcher correct ?
Very True, QB, OL, DT and corner are vastly improved compared to draft time last year. So team is in a better place to use a luxury pick on RB....
I have a feeling the current brass just does not value RB. They passed on Jonathan Taylor, Akers and Dobbins (rumoured pre draft they loved JK)...
PFN’s Tony Pauline is saying Dolphins like pass rushers at 18.
47:30 -they talk Dolphins pick 18;
17:00 - They talk pick #6....
It’s draft week. Let the craziness begin.
We already have a mock draft thread to post all the incoming final Mocks.
Figured I’d start a thread...
Good content here.
It’s not a mock.
Just his top 100 prospects and some info on what kind of player each of them are....
#6 - Pitts or Chase.
#18 - Parsons if he slides.
If not I really like Paye.
Ojulari would also be a great Dolphins type...
These guys could care less about the Dolphins and are just throwing out random takes. Couple talking heads put out to kill air time.
I notice now some of these cap saving numbers change (more favourably for The team) if the players are cut AFTER June 1.
McCain - 7.1M / saves...
To all those who constantly cheerlead the idea of trading back if someone offers better than ‘value’ chart.
Or for the ‘more...
Cut Candidates; ‘21 Salary / Cap savings
McCain -7.1M / saves 5.7M
Rowe - 6M / saves 5.0M...
At the expense of Kindley ?
Based on last year I think Kindley’s job is more secure then Hunt’s. He was a beast and the staff constantly raved...
texanphinatic why are you devaluing the right side of the line?
We got a lefty QB.
Problem with your guys plan is the 18 pick is a value trap for offensive players.
Only guys in that neighborhood are Bateman, Harris or Etienne...
Great write up.
I agree C can be underrated. Definitely helps when you have a cerebral guy at centre who can help the QB calling blocking...
Daniel Jerimiah, (Chase and Rousseau)
Peter Schrager (Slater and Harris)
and Scott Smith (Sewell and Collins)
I keep an eye on these 3 guys for...
I’m good at 6 personally.
I believe they’ll be a hall of fame caliber star on the board at a position of need for us.
Also risky trading down to...
and Trey Sermon hasn’t even come up in the thread.
I remember watching a couple Buckeye games and the dude looked flat out...
His upside is soooo high. It’s a risk/reward play for sure.
But I’m comparing taking him vs taking a running back. RB’s are always an injury...
Couldn’t agree more on RB value.
I like LB/DE (In this order) before we consider an RB at 18;
I compare Harris to Le’Veon Bell.
Big guy who is really shifty and agile and prefers to dance around contact then run through guys. Also a great...
So many variables. It’s almost impossible to say without knowing what happens at 6.
If we stand pat at 18; Paye, Slater or a (potentially)...
Absolutely not. There will be a hall of famer on the board at 6.
You draft that guy. Super bowl teams have superstar players.
These videos are awesome. Going to be so much more prepared with a full off season program.
Tua is coming into this season in much better...
I hope so, he’ll have to earn every snap he gets.
This team is so deep at corner. Needham was lights out in the slot the last 9 game or so....
they currently sit at 10.
I noticed you can always get Williams at 50 and Phillips at 36.
Just did one and got Sewell, Waddle, Phillips and Williams.
These are fun to mess around with.
I find the PFN ranking seem to make it easier to stack the Dolphins draft based on our needs....
Strongest to Weskest;
CB- Top end talent + depth galore
DT- Youth, Depth, upside
OG- Flowers/Kindley - monster maulers
TE- Top receiver/top...
Absolute cheat code in college last year.
Who knows he may be the front offices guy all along.
He is the only top prospect in the 6 range that...
I like what you’re putting down.
36) Dyami Brown
That would be my ultimate draft !
Wouldn’t hate Phillips at 18 either, but...
He only played in 4 games last year!
He can do it all. Perfect 3-4 end. Great size and versatile. His numbers are comparable if not better...
Did someone ask for agility in this DE class?
His history/past record actually isn’t terrible. Probably as good if not better than most pundits.
And I see he has Dyami Brown in his top 3...
I would take him. Kick Hunt inside (which he has played).
We would be stacked on O line for years to come with Sewell, Jackson, Hunt and...
I don’t disagree. That would be great. Best shot to find someone like that now is to throw a 1 year 5M deal at Justin Houston. Still only 32...
Only 10 players in the ENTIRE league had 10+ sacks last year. The top rookie was freak superstar ChaseYoung and he only had 7.5. Almost zero...
Very good topic.
A lot was made last year about Tua adjusting to ‘NFL open’. And Tua hesitating to throw into tight man coverage (not a bad...
I just pointed out Sewell bc a lot of people are zeroed in on a pass catcher.
And seem to assume that we traded out of 3 bc we...
I agree. Very high chance 4 straight quarterbacks will be taken. Which would be perfect for us.
But if reports that Philly traded back bc they...
I like Toney too. Gets separation with such ease and generates big plays from the slot. Think he would be good in the return game as well.
Could be True. But seems way too early to put ALL your cards on the table.
And coincidentally his dad Mike made sure Denver sent no reps to Jay...
That was Pretty good, was that you ?
Williams part was funny.
He is the tallest receiver on the team. ‘Some people say he is a stud and others...
Parker, Fuller, Williams and Wilson... none of them can be trusted to stay healthy. And all are on 1 year deals.
Still possible Grant and/or...
Lots of talk about the incredible depth of this years wide receiver draft class. (Maybe even slowed down the free agent Wideout market)
We’re working with a lot of very incomplete data this early.
But most of the teams success will rest on whether promising young talents like Tua,...
3)Patrick Surtain II (Not a need. But all pro talent at a premier position)
Something has to be done at safety if they decide to cut McCain.
They could be planning to switch Justin Coleman to safety or have Coleman play...
Perfect... 4 QBs going before us!
Very likely to get same guy at 6, that we would have taken at 3.
We now own SF 2022 1st rounder.
Eagles own ours. So possible move up for us.
Dolphins Assets In/Out
SF 1st rd 2022...
So looks like we gave up our own 2022 1st!
Like this trade even more now. So much motivation to win this year. And brass confidently...
I didn’t see the additional move yet. I’m fine with moving back to 6.
It’s very evident 4 QB’s are going top 5. And very likely Sewell will be...
They gave up all control of the player they will be picking. Basically said we’re good with whatever is left. No desire or passion shown to add...
This is too far down for my liking.
Are the scouts not pounding the table on any prospects in the top 10 ? If not why... are they not confident...
Hollins gets after it on special teams.
Glad both these guys are back.
Agreed. Not sure where all this sympathy is coming from. This guy is sharing the roads with your loved ones.
Lots of good, talented, hard...
