    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    And may I add, good players at premium positions. One thing I completely dont understand is why anyone assumes any of these backs (beyond the top 3) would be better than Gaskin. (If you want to say Ahmed as well, the same applies) I’m not the biggest Gaskin fan, but he put up good numbers...and...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    I don’t even think it’s just the local media, the national coverage on Tua tends to be brutal too. It’s downright bizarre to me how he went from generational prospect to seemingly not an NFL QB after less than a year...and a year with plenty of reasonable explanations for his struggles at that...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    I like the SI day 2 mock I found, while searching for best available players, this morning. it gave Miami the ND LB, Landon Dickerson and Williams in the 3rd. I had to double take and make sure it wasn’t a blog from an overly optimistic Fins fan lol My final takeaway of last night is the simple...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    I kind of hate how this played out...the Phillips pick even more so than Waddle...but these really seem like a couple home run swings, and I’ve bitched for decades about the team not having “playmakers”, so who knows. If these connect it could be fantastic.

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    Not my favorite scenario, but Waddle, Parker, Fuller and Gesicki certainly seems like it could be exciting. And on that note...I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if they take Etienne in an attempt to play “catch us if you can”.

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    I actually think they are going to wind up with Pitts. If that doesn’t happen, my final guess is it’s Sewell if they stay at #6. Waddle if they trade down a few spots. And sorry to Pdaj above, but my guess is neither Smith or Harris will be selected.

    NFL Draft Rd.1: Picks Gamethread--NO SPOILERS

    I don’t really know anything about Tutu Atwell, other than his name is Tutu and I’m pretty sure that I need the call of “Tua to Tutu...Touchdown” in my life.

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    If Pitts is gone, I’ve come around to the idea that the Bengals taking Chase and then Miami taking Sewell would be a blessing in disguise. Then hope Bateman is there at #18 or F’ it and trade back up as it’s likely that either Waddle or Smith drops to a point where that is a viable option as...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    Some of the recent discussion, and what I was just speaking of, made me think of this meme that had been circulating... And I haven’t really argued Sewell for Miami, but I would see the logic, so really just found this amusing... View...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    The Cincy pick was a large part of the discussion. Some of the other arguments for tackle over receiver, which seem logical, were the hit rate of high picks and the idea that you can build a receiver group that compliments each other, where as you can’t hide a tackle or have a specialist at the...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    Happened to listen to the Athletic/Mays podcast on pass catchers, and it was a sobering discussion... To sum it up, they theorized that these last two receiver classes weren’t unusually deep or talented, but rather a sign of a new normal due to the proliferation of the passing game across all...

    Bursting Your Bubble: the 2020-21 NBA Gambling Thread

    Thanks for the heads up, DraftKings had a 100% NBA profit boost and I had a tough time finding anything that stood out to me on the slate, so I decided the afternoon under play seemed as good as any. Not going to lie, it wasn’t looking good at the half there, so that was a pleasant surprise to...

    Fucking dumb. If you’re going to make bs calls to try and shorten the game and get off the field, don’t play the damn game to begin with. Though, maybe I’m giving too much credit, and it’s simply incompetence.

    All that I remember is the 13 pitch at bat, Grand Slam, by Betts. If he was (is) a Sox killer, that singular memory drowns or out.
