    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    Which is why I’m willing to give them a mulligan for last year but would be pretty disappointed if we see a similar performance from them this year. Obviously they have added weapons and I would expect to see a more robust passing game out of 12 personnel, but I don’t think it’s going to be...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    That’s what I was assuming you meant and I agree. It’ll be an easy story to start running with. Miami didn’t re-sign Fitzpatrick. They passed on Herbert. They traded out of 3 and passed on the opportunity for Lance, Fields, and Jones. Definitely an important year for Tua and important for him...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    Posted in the Pats schedule thread, but it’s rumored right now Miami might cap the season in Week 18 home against NE. I would imagine it’s also a distinct possibility Miami is facing a different QB and a different looking offense in that matchup vs Week 1.

    2021 NFL Schedule Release

    Damn, bookended the season. Would much rather be Week 18 (feels very weird to say) in Miami than at Buffalo.

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    Extremely early Week 1 betting line is Patriots -2.5 at home, which is either a push or a very slight underdog depending on how you value home field in gambling. View: https://twitter.com/pff/status/1392481616224718851?s=21

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    In here or in the media at large? Because we’re all pretty even keeled here in regards to Tua. Obviously we’re hoping for the best, but I won’t be abandoning the 2021 season if Belichick manages to take a win against Miami at home. I’ll be interested in seeing how Miami plans to attack NE’s...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    Miami at NE Week 1. Last year, NE went from 2 decades of Tom Brady to running a single wing offense with Cam Newton and Miami had zero game tape in advance of the matchup. If Miami gets caught with their pants down two years in a row, I’ll be less than enthused. They certainly added some...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    View: https://twitter.com/adamschefter/status/1390304508333363202?s=21 This isn’t shocking because Miami basically just drafted his replacement in Javon Holland and had Hooker in for a visit. What makes it a little surprising is that Holland played a ton of slot CB or Big Nickel and not a ton...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    Saw this on Twitter this afternoon. Hooker is a big name but he hasn’t been able to stay on the field. I wouldn’t read a ton into this other than they’re seeing if he wants to take a one year prove it deal and would have a chance to compete with McCain. I don’t think you dump McCain, strictly...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    I definitely see some Jay Ajayi in Doaks’s game. Also don’t forget that Jordan Howard had like half a dozen 1 yard TDs before Miami cut him. I don’t mind a RBBC as long as there’s some complimentary skill sets. Once they cut Jordan, there were too many similar backs in the backfield and no one...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    Looking around the internet this morning and it seems like near universal praise for Grier and the draft. It was top heavy with 5 picks in the first 3 rounds and then nothing until round 7, but those first 5 picks are all projected to be significant contributors this year. They also snagged...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    It’s a double edged sword. This draft class was shallow at RB. Last year was deep. I understand not wanting to reach for a RB when there are only three premium choices The bigger miss is last year where they had so much draft capital they were taking long snappers in the sixth round and it was...

    Dolphins: Tua Be or Not To Be?

    I feel like not taking Trey Sermon and taking Hunter Long was to spite me personally. Long is basically a better version of Durham Smythe. A more traditional Y TE that also lead the nation in receptions at TE last year (yes, including Kyle Pitts). Miami got to work with him at the Senior Bowl...

    NFL Draft Rd.2-3: Discussions, Rumors & Spoilers Gamethread

    That’s what I had thought as well. Marino was the crown prince of Pittsburgh and liked to have a good time off the field. Two of Miami’s all time draft picks come back to drugs. I’m cool with that.
