    2020 Dolphins: Aloha

    Man, aside from the Tua pick, the "experts" haven't exactly loved what the Dolphins have done up to this point. Mostly luke-warm to solid reviews. Along with the sentiment that they've reached on a few guys, one of the bigger points of criticism has been around how they somehow managed not to...

    Red Sox Greatest Out/Putout

    Speaking of Pedroia....this one deserves some love. The combined effort on this play continues to blow me away.

    Baseball on Television

    OK, so I'm combing through YouTube for classic games and decide to settle in for the 1986 ALCS pennant clinching game 7. I've re-watched Game 5 of this series a few times, but never this one. At the time this game aired I was a lonely 15-year-old, a rare Red Sox fan growing up half a world...

    2019 Coaching Carousel

    @rymflaherty already pretty much covered mine and others' perspective on Miami's situation, although I would ask with regard to this: What is it Gase did in 3 years that you think warrants him coming back, particularly as the Dolphins move away from Tannehill, Gase's darling of sorts, and one...

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    Yeah, I don't know, man. I agree that this was an insane season to try to fully adequately evaluate a coach, but there were enough red flags in my opinion to justify the move. In addition to tactical stuff and stubborn roster management, there were several indications that he never had a full...

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    That's been an ongoing debate all season. It's become more glaring since the season-ending injuries to Jakeem Grant and Albert Wilson. Gase puts a lot of stock in the reliability of a downhill runner like Gore and seems to be quite deliberate about when and how he uses Drake. It's...

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    I don't know about a pattern since I rarely venture outside of this thread for football-related matters, but I agree that that was way out of line. I just think let the mods mod. Would this be a good time to remind folks that at the end of the day and most importantly, we're ALL Red Sox fans...

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    I see what you did there.... Anyway, I really don't have a dog in the fight, but isn't the choice of threads in which one chooses to do their trolling part of the thing here?

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    Totally agree. As have most of the non Dolphin-fan posters. Like I mentioned, I understand the sheer release of emotion, but sodenj knows better. I mean, "Suck it Patriots fans!" kind of goes without saying, doesn't it? ;) Yet another thing that stood out to me from this game was Gase...

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    Shoot, I'd almost forgotten about those. And that led to those bizarre running kicks by Haack. Fascinating game. How about the 3 TDs for the Dolphins by guys who came into the game with 5 touches, combined?

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    I mean, what can you say? Probably the grittiest win of Tannehill's career when you factor in his injuries. As Dolphins fans celebrate, I know Pats fans can (rightfully) point out the irrelevance of Miami for the last 20 years and the ultimate irrelevance of this game, but whatever. I'm...

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    The loss of Wilson, Grant, and Stills for a time, combined with the disappearance of Kenyan Drake factored significantly into this, no? Anyway, the Dolphins will struggle with Luck, who is on fire, and unless Miami brought in a miracle healer during the bye, they are still thin at multiple...

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    Do we officially get to blame this lost season on injuries yet? I mean sure, coaching has been questionable at times, and good teams embrace and thrive on "next man up," but what the Dolphins have endured this year is fucking absurd.

    2018 Dolphins: Back to Gasics

    That it got to that point, though, is what concerns me.
