  1. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    LOL please stop with that. Mayfield stood back there like he was Tom Brady window shopping for shoes. We went conservative with 4 man rushes and zone defense and he picked us apart. He had all day to throw that second half. Such an overreaction just like you probably did after Darnold's first game. Darnold is going to be the MVP of the league after week 1, then was the youngest to throw for 300 yards in a game. Now he what should be benched for McCown? I'm going to have to stay away until next week if this is the way this board is going to be with the week to week overreactions. Mayfield looked great no doubt, not as great if Middleton catches a ball thrown right to him and Mo doesn't hold on the 2 point conversion. Darnold is going to be great, nothing about last night or the first game in DET made me change my mind. Not getting too high or low week to week because it's a waste. Darnold is a franchise QB, enough said. Until we can get a competent OL, HC, pass rush we are going to blow leads and lose close games. CLE is a good football team, we can all laugh about the winless streak and all but if you watched the first three weeks they should be 3-0 right now if they just played Mayfield and had a kicker. Even the terrible coaching of Hue can't stop the talent they have. They have studs on every level of defense, STUDS!!. They held Drew Brees to 21 points in the dome, they are no joke.
  2. No doubt about that. Huge game for them, really big difference going into the extended break 2-1 and 1-2 with a tough stretch coming up.
  3. Nope it's 11. Played Monday Night opening week.
  4. 3rd game in 11 days for the Jets is rough with 2 on the road.
  5. Game 1, 2018: @ Cleveland Browns [TNF]

    They schemed that really well and only pulled it out when needed. Gase did a great job sneaking that in especially with Tanny coming off a bad knee. Tyrod isn't going to surprise anyone, they should know it's coming.
  6. Game 1, 2018: @ Cleveland Browns [TNF]

    That's what happens when they play PIT/NO tough and we lose to MIA at home. A CLE bar set up Go-Pro's around the bar to capture the moment when they win. We better show up tonight that's all I'm saying. Glad CLE is playing well but no reason we can't go into CLE and win. They have a great DL and D overall but we should be able to stop them as well. It's going to be a low scoring game I feel and Darnold needs to not give them a short field. I'm scared of Tyrod's legs the most and their DL against our OL. Hopefully Crowell can run right at Garrett and slow his pass rush.
  7. Do You Care About the Dolphins' 2-0 Start?

    Spin it how you want and not sure how you have 25-30M to spend after the draft. Looks like $24M to me before the draft with only 35 players on the roster. When salaries are going up you may have around 20M to spend after the draft on 10-12 players. I'm sure Tanny can make wiggle room, it's what he's good at but eventually it catches up with him. Not sure what 2M a player gets you these days. There are like 8 teams in worse cap space according to OTC 5-6 have superbowl aspirations though.

    My mistake that was your buddy cddolphin who called me out. Just pointing out a bad situation, not going to harp on cap strapped anymore.
  9. Do You Care About the Dolphins' 2-0 Start?

    When your offseason consists of filling out your roster with low level players via resigning and/or FA how is that not cap strapped? Cap strapped means money is tight which it clearly is in MIA. When you say retain players and bring in FA's that's great that you can but what type of players can you retain and what type of FA's are you talking about? Not anyone who has value in this league because if they do you won't be able to retain or be able to bring in. Just because you aren't as bad as other teams doesn't make you situation good. The thing about teams like PHI, JAC, and MIN is they are actually superbowl contenders, see the difference between them and MIA. When your entire offseason will be built around using what little cap you have to just fill out your roster it's not a good cap situation. Call it what you will. If you want to argue the definition of "cap strapped" so be it but but the point still stands. This thread will die soon enough don't worry. Next time you try to call someone out make sure you understand see the whole picture not just post a link to show you 24M to spend next year you look foolish.
  10. Mid-season extensions

    Agreed. No issues going all in on Barr and Marpet. I would go big time for both like 18-20M for Barr and like 14M for Marpet. Both put them at or near the top of their respective positions. Overpaid you bet but you can never overpay to protect your young franchise QB and add an elite player at an impact position like pass rusher.
  11. Mid-season extensions

    Forgot about Barr. Love his all around game even if he isn't a high sack guy. He is asked to do so much other stuff and he's great at it. We very well could be in play for Williams who is a top 5 pick. We have a rough schedule ahead after CLE. We are unlikely to land all those guys with how much cap space is out there but I'd love Barr/Fowler and Marpet. If we could bring in those two positions and draft Williams we'd be in great shape.
  12. Do You Care About the Dolphins' 2-0 Start?

    Oh man bottom 1/3 in the NFL in cap space my bad. OTC has you at 24M in 2019. Add to the fact you then have only 35 players under contract and need to spend what $5-6 M on the draft. You have not much to spend on what another 13 players to fill the roster. No team is cap strapped because of the expected $12M in the cap space but you are a mediocre team with not much to work with in cap space. Bring back one or two of those FA's and you have even less. If you think you are going to FA players next year you are sorely mistaken. Wake up man Tanny did the same thing to NY, I know how this ends for you. I do know what I'm talking about thank you. You should look at the whole picture first before criticizing.
  13. Mid-season extensions

    I agree the two that need to be done are Leo and Q. I'd be good with Mo, Anderson, and McClendon back if they keep playing at a high level or we can't find an upgrade. Shell needs to be the long term RT, that is huge for our OL. If he can't then we have major OL issues. OT: Quietly Winters has been really solid on the OL. Offseason goals: rebuild the left side of the line (LT in round 1, LG in mid rounds or FA), add a young WR to grow with the young talent we already have in Anderson, Q, and Herndon (Funchess maybe? or mid rounder), and find a stud pass rusher (Fowler maybe?)
  14. Game 2, 2018: vs Miami Dolphins

    He is top 5 in the league in YPA. Once he cleans things up he is going to be great.
  15. Do You Care About the Dolphins' 2-0 Start?

    Not bitter at all. Just happy to have a franchise QB for once. These losses are going to happen all year they are to be expected with a rookie QB. Hell we probably lose to the Browns next week but having Darnold makes losing bearable now and puts a bright light on 2019 when we have 100M to spend and a seasoned Darnold. We played tough and if a play or two go our way we win that game. How can I be bitter. Even after losing to a mediocre Fins team I'm not bitter in the slightest. You guys are all in with a cap strapped team hovering around mediocrity while the Jets are rebuilding you should win that game.
