    David Ortiz in Hospital with Gunshot Wound?

    Is Papi Batman now? Prayers up for Ortiz. The man is a treasure, and a good human being. Hopefully he recovers quickly.

    Pedroia Predictions

    This goes alongside Nomar as a guy that I’ve loved watching play for so long not getting the ending that he deserved. It seems clear that Pedroia’s playing days are likely behind him. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Sox either buy out his contract or hire him as a consultant/coach so he can...

    2019 NFL News & Transactions

    So this is going to sound dumb, but I firmly believe that despite his record as a coach for Miami, he overachieved in Miami. The roster was not good. He had Tannehill for less than half of his games as a coach and was stuck with Cutler, Moore, Fales and Osweiler. He made the playoffs year 1...

    2019 NY Jets: Why Are You Laughing at Us? (Jets Hire Adam Gase!)

    Makes a lot of sense. Gase doesn’t use a workhorse back. He likes the RBBC approach and guys that are specialists. The dude struck gold with Kenyan Drake and went out and signed Frank Gore to steal his carries.

    2019 NY Jets: Why Are You Laughing at Us? (Jets Hire Adam Gase!)

    People were pointing out in Twitter that in every photo of the Jets’ war room during the draft, Adam Gase was absolutely nowhere to be found, which is extremely odd. Have to assume they weren’t seeing eye to eye on who/what to draft, and Gase bailed in protest. MacCagnan was also a terrible...

    2019 NY Jets: Why Are You Laughing at Us? (Jets Hire Adam Gase!)

    Hope you guys don’t have any moderately outspoken players that you really enjoy watching play for the Jets. Jarvis Landry and Jay Ajayi did not die for this.

    2019 Dolphins: Flo Ridas

    A cost controlled QB is probably the most valuable asset in football. Whether it’s Rosen, who is even cheaper than most rookie QBs, or someone Miami drafts in the next year or two, they will be paying under market value at the position for the next 3 seasons minimum. Agreed that it makes a ton...

    The Rosen Thread

    I got the exact impression you did. Keim comes off like an absolute buffoon. Completely botched the handling of the entire situation. Also the same guy that signed an extension last season through 2022 and promptly went out and got a DUI and a 5 game suspension from the league.

    The Rosen Thread

    Maybe he’s not the guy people assumed he was while he was going through the draft process last year. Everything I’ve seen and read suggests he handled this with maturity, class, and professionalism, and I’ve seen many teammates and some coaches echo the exact same thing. Except for Steve...

    The Rosen Thread

    What boggles my mind is people complained about never challenging Tannehill. Bringing him in and handing him the job and never drafting anyone to truly push him. Miami finally makes a move to address the position, and not only did they not take themselves out of position for 2020, they...

    2019 Dolphins: Flo Ridas

    Well this class was eyed as a bad QB class since last year’s draft. I’m pretty sure Haskins and Herbert were viewed as the main QBs because Murray had been drafted by the A’s and said he was only playing one season of football. Herbert obviously went back to Oregon. Jones is probably the one...

    2019 Dolphins: Flo Ridas

    Haskins, maybe. Murray if he had declared he was going to play football instead of baseball. But your point is valid. Every year players rise and fall. It seems 2020 is the year of Tua, barring a major injury or collapse, unless someone like Fromm or Herbert or Love take a big step forward.

    2019 Dolphins: Flo Ridas

    In case you weren’t sure if Miami was trying to become the Patriots South, they drafted Chandler Cox, FB out of Auburn. I like what Miami did in the draft as a whole. Obviously the roster still has a lot of holes but this was never a one offseason rebuild. Watching Rosen obviously becomes...

    The Rosen Thread

    If NE made this move, it’s viewed as a masterstroke by BB. Getting Brady’s heir apparent for pennies on the dollar. Miami does it and people are concerned that it might impact their ability to be terrible.

    2019 Dolphins: Flo Ridas

    I mean he was labeled a spoiled brat because he didn’t take instruction at Dilfer’s passing camp when he was like 16. Everything I heard this week was he handled this entire draft situation like a complete professional, showing up early and working hard as if he were going to be the starter in...

    2019 Dolphins: Flo Ridas

    Chris Greir was asked last night what changed between last year, when they could have possibly traded up for Rosen, and this year. He said coaching staffs. Last year he wasn’t graded as a top 5 or top 10 talent for them, which would have prompted them to trade up. Obviously O’Shea and Flores...

    Chase Winovich: Foxboro Fabio

    Not going to lie, was hoping Miami would take him in round 2. Watching him go to NE one pick in front of Miami in the third certainly stings. Maybe the most NE player in the draft.

    2019 Dolphins: Flo Ridas

    Miami selects Michael Deiter, G/C, Wisconsin. He’s going to be a day one starter for Miami, likely at LG, with Jesse Davis maybe penciled in at RT right now.

    The Rosen Thread

    I think anything short of completely amazing, and Miami is drafting a QB. If he’s ok, draft a QB and let them battle it out. Josh Rosen wasn’t Miami’s top 10 pick. They didn’t trade up to get him. It’s completely different scenarios from AZ. He isn’t coming in as the presumed franchise QB.

    2019 Dolphins: Flo Ridas

    Well, here we are. Miami has traded for Josh Rosen after trading down, giving up pick 60 and a 2020 5th round draft pick. I’ll reiterate what I said before. This is a no lose situation for Miami. He’s owed peanuts. Miami still has a stockpile of draft picks in 2020. They get a full year to...
