    Sparano is bringing in his former guys. It's a shame nobody else claimed Gates. He will likely torch us at least once this year.

    It had to be either them or the PATS. I live in NYC and am not looking forward seeing Y BELL or Gates in a green uni.

    More disappointed at losing Aaitui. But it sounds like this might be a typical information dump by the Jets.

    Would not surprise me if Tony does not lobby for Murtha also.. Not a bad backup and tons better then Jason Smith who you guys just got in a trade with the Rams.

    That was the craziest trade I have ever heard of. One bad OT for another really bad OT with one of them having a salary of 4 million ( Smith ) Its said though the Rams wanted him out so bad they paid down 1.5 million of his salary just to trade him. Is that true ? I miss Y. Bell.

    I have a new rule proposal... any team in the same division that gets your player off waivers should have to compensate you in the form of a league approved draft pick.

    It would be a Honor is Naanee even was close to be a buble player. I do not know what they paid Naanee but if its above 100 bucks a game they got ripped off.

    Aaitu is not Sparano's former guy, unless one is really splitting hair. He didn't join the PS last season till October and Tony left not long after that. I doubt they had time to really form this great bond.
    Besides, Tony doesn't have the power to bring in anyone. He's got his hands full trying to coordinate their offense.

    Of course they picked them up!

    Jabba will pump them for info and probably cut them in a week.

    How long do you actually think it takes for Tony to develop his simple game plans? :lol:

    Maybe they're so complicated the players haven't been able to figure them out.

    I thought that Murtha was in our long term plans starting this year, poor guy just can't stay healthy. I don't see him getting picked up just yet

    You're taking classes about coffins? Does that mean you are studying to be a mortician?

    Its been a time honored tradition to quiz rivals discards in order to glean any useful info they may have.Players that are unwanted and cut are still smarting and are predisposed to tattle.

    Most get cut anyway after spilling the beans.

    I look forward to watching Gates making highlight catches with one foot out of bounds for the Jets this year.

    Aatui getting claimed not a surprise though, that was probably the most likely claim from the planet theory teams out there (which appears to include us so was a small surprise he got cut in the first place).

    It seems like we never do this, only the PATS and JESTS with former dolphins

    I imagine anything is possible.
    I certainly wouldn't bet any money on that angle though.

    Go to Settings, in the upper right of this page. Then go to Edit Signature along the left hand margin. I do not take the pix myself, wish I did. Actually every pic I have used lately, I just stumbled upon them by happenstance, surfing the net.

    Well, when you diagram on the back of a pizza box, then the grease makes the ink runny, they can become complicated.

    Dang, this seems like a record for number of Dolphins final cuts being claimed by other teams. Especially young developmental players.

    I expected New England to snag Gates, or Hogan, but the Jets don't surprise me at all.

    Who have the Phins claimed off waivers?

    We have had a long series of rookie head coaches who are not that saavy.Its the wily experienced head coaches who look for any edge they can find.
