The Case for Ryan Tannehill

 

By: CZZI

 

Normally I do not get much into the draft since it is a “crapshoot”, however, today I felt it necessary to address this issue for one prospect, Ryan Tannehill.  I will present the best case I can as to why I believe the Dolphins will trade up for him.  If you disagree than by all means please do.  First some background on T-Hill:

Now statistics are statistics in that it is a matter of your conference and the quality of the team and the teams you played.  So with that in mind let’s see what we have here.

 

The Dolphins are in need of a quarterback that has the potential to take the team to the next level and is capable of being a team leader.  Leadership is not learned, it is in you or it is not in you.  To quote a great coach, “Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile”. Vince Lombardi.

 

Now how do we know if T-Hill is a good leader?  Well we cannot decipher that since we are not privy to his inner workings.  However, there are some clues, firstly, pro scouts, talking heads, many professional writers have stated that he has a strong work ethic, poise, maturity and not afraid to take on any task.  Second, he started as a wide receiver and during his time at that position attended every QB meeting. Third he has the ability to adapt and is bright, smart and articulate.

 

From the IMG Performance Institute:  T-Hill has worked closely with former Heisman Trophy winner Coach Chris Weinke, improving his quarterback skill set and has worked on his speed and agility with Coach Loren Seagrave the Director of Speed and Movement at IMG Academies.  Coach Seagrave had this to say of T-Hill, “Ryan is a great guy, really a quiet leader, he has so much confidence and I got a chance to watch the walk through.  Some of the guys he was familiar with and some he wasn’t, watching him interact keeping those guys positive and keeping the momentum moving forward was impressive.  His leadership ability in addition to him being very gifted physically makes him a great NFL prospect”.  Fourth, the current Offensive Coordinator was his previous Head Coach.  Familiarity is important, Mike Sherman is a good coordinator and I would think he would not have kept him as a starter if he did not have these attributes or the ability in the future to develop them.

 

The IMG Performance Institute trains athletes in improving their running efficiency and is widely known in the sporting world for performance enhancement.  They are not some talking head, stat reader; they know performance and potential physical abilities.  So he has very positive leadership traits and physical, athletic ability.

 

Next up, is he capable of being an NFL starter?  That question has been answered since he has moved up the charts and has the physical abilities.  But, what about his skill sets.  Let’s take a look at that.

 

Once again from IMG:  Coach Seagrave is very impressed with Tannehill’s work ethic and perseverance.  Tannehill on his pro day showed he was able to pivot, roll out and throw on the run very accurately.  Tannehill surprised many with his 40 yard dash time coming in the 4.5’s, silencing any doubts about his foot not being healed.  Seagrave has been working with Tannehill over the past two months reprogramming his nervous system in reference to his running technique. (http://blog.imgacademies.com/2012/03/30/loren-seagrave-talks-ryan-tannehill/).

 

Scouts were so impressed with T-Hills time they did not request to see a second attempt on the 40 yard dash.  So you say this is just one coach at some performance place.  Well, the man is the expert in his field.  It verifies the premise of leadership, performance, skill set and work ethic, all of the attributes of a good player.  So does he have what it takes to be the Dolphins next QB?

 

Let’s hear from some experts.  On the Mike and Mike radio show Ron Jaworski stated that the Dolphins need a QB and T-Hill would fill the bill.  He has a big arm, pocket presence and is mobile.  His touch passes are good and needs some work as well as his reading of the secondary, however, all of these can be overcome with coaching.  Listen to Jaws here: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=7809224

 

Todd McShay, NFL draft expert agrees and states that T-Hill will be a good QB with time.  You can listen to the interview here: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=7805037

 

Some GM’s as stated by McShay said he would be a good choice, sort of like Aaron Rodgers, that you are going to have him learn the system and he should not start right out of the box.  By the end of the season he would then be able to step in and take over.

 

I think that the coaching staff that is now in place is able to develop him into the starting QB, with patience and working on his skill sets.  Philbin worked with Rodgers and we know what happened inGreen Bay. T-Hill has the size, mobility, mind, leadership, arm strength and lastly the work ethic to make it happen.

 

The only question, are the Dolphins gutsy enough to pull the trigger on a prospect that has some unknowns?  My opinion is they will because of the Sherman connection, Phibins’ working knowledge of developing a raw talent (Rodgers) and the need for a gifted athlete that loves competition and has the desire to succeed.

 

Finally, they traded Marshall,why, maybe they did not want a veteran who is unsuitable for a young QB to succeed (we know Marshall for his erratic behavior/comments), for two, third round draft picks, why would they desire those third picks?  Bargain chips to get T-Hill?

 

Post Script: If they get T-Hill, he will have a good chance to start since I believe he has knowledge of the Playbook, due to his association with Sherman.

    CZZI,
    Nice write up. Tannehill has a chance to be a very good player. AS I said plenty of times before, he is the guy I think the team should be targeting, but if they don’t, and they have more info than any of us, I take solace knowing that there are still talented prospects after him. In regards to the trad of Marshall, I think it was an addition by subtraction and it gave us some good chips to pick-up team oriented WR’s that fit our new scheme. Once again nicely researched and written.

  • Rhino says:

    Taking him at #8 is plausible, but our FO won’t trade UP. They wouldn’t go after a ready to start guy in RGIII just one spot higher, they won’t go after a two year project.

    I wonder if we can find clips of the entire UT and OU games :)

  • Walker says:

    Good job Czzi,
    He’s my pick if the coaches think he’s the One. Off to FCAT test, ugh. Will talk to you all later after noon.

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    At the end of the day it comes down to what Sherman tells the team about him.. Sherman worked under Ron Wolf, who I think was one the very best at evaluating QBs. I don’t think we need to trade up to get Tannehill, but if we do it will indicate that they believe he is going to be an elite QB.

  • Gigi says:

    Very nice article CZZI. That’s first time I have seen lengthy video of Tannehill and I am impressed. We have his former coach who knows him well – let’s see if he believes he is the real deal.

  • professorlou says:

    Yesterday, on my blog, I did a breakdown of some of the plays made by Chandler Harnish during last season. I did a little bit of a comparison between he and Tannehill and I have some plays that show the ability Harnish has as a quarterback. I did this not because I believe Harnish is worth a first round pick but because I believe one of the two is vastly overrated and the other is vastly underrated.
    Tannehill still will get a better rating from everyone because he is from a bigger school but that still doesn’t fix the fact that he’s nothing more than a 3rd round prospect. At worst, Harnish is a 4th round prospect. Harnish may not have played against the “level of competition” Tannehill did but Tannehill lost games against plenty of mediocre teams in 2011. Harnish is a commander on the field and a much better leader and quarterback than Tannehill is at this time. Both will be projects but the upside for Harnish, in this one person’s opinion, will be greater than that of Tannehill.
    I compare Harnish to Dalton and Yates. His athletic ability is at least the equal of that of Tannehill, if not better, his arm is close enough to that of Tannehill’s but his ability to place the ball where it needs to be for his receivers to catch it is superior to Tannehill.
    I’m not going to spend time trying to convince everyone of this but, if you like, you can look at my last post on my blog. Anyone who takes the time to really look at both of these guys and what they did last year is going to come away with a completely different perspective on the situation. Keep in mind, Tannehill didn’t have the starts Harnish did and Harnish led his team to two 11 win seasons in a row and was 8-0 in the MAC in 2010 and won the MAC Championship in 2011 and won both bowl games.
    Harnish is a winner. He’s 21-6 over the past two seasons and he led his team back from deficits in a lot of those games. Tannehill’s teams blew leads in the 2nd half on a consistent basis last year and he was unable to bring them back. People want to point out how good he is but then use excuses to cover up for him by saying his team had a terrible defense and didn’t have good receivers. Sounds too much to me like the people who came to Henne’s defense.

  • stanger says:

    Gotta agree with Walker and P Phish — He is who Sherman thinks he is.

    Got my hopes up that that is our slinger or the next decade, but all we can do is wait and see. If their is a knock on him it is those Elton John sunglasses he has on in that pic someone (think Mike E) was using as an avi for a while.

    Makes me question his decision-making…..but hey, might play well to certain portions of the South Beach crowd. :)

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    great breakdown CZ, i think Tanny has the size and talent, but needs further refinement. this is agreed on by many, but not many can agree on how long it will actually take, and do Miami team and fans have the patience for it? guess will find out soon.

    i also want to say i was impressed with number 25 catching the ball, so i did some google on him. he is Ryan Swope, soph WR last season, ran track, and broke school records for receptions in his sophomore year. this guys a future NFLer in my opinion, would love to team him up with Tanny in Miami, but one step at a time, get Tanny here first~

    GTG Give Tanny the Glory

  • fish dip says:

    Tannehill is the best QB in the world. The Dolphins should give their entire draft to the Colts and draw up an contract that that Jeff Ireland will draft Tannehill @ #1 plus give the Colts every draft pick they have. The Colts probably want Tannehill esp after a few more media bozos talk up how great he is and forget about the 29 in-completions in only one game, the fact Tannehill threw 3 interceptions in each and every of the 3 games that were not against sissy-girl cupcake teams. Tannehill did play a grand total of 19 games in college in a weak division so the Miami Dolphins should marry him at this high pick ensuring he will make or break the team for the next 3-5 years. We also should over look the problems Tannehill has throwing inside and is consistently inaccurate w the deep ball. Tannehill’s throwing mechanics certainly need improvement but we can worry about that some other time. The team actually went 6-6 not 7-6, but if u add the bowl game into the regular season (which nobody does) it sounds like Texas A&M actually had a winning season. So we will also forget that Tannehill and coach Sherman in fact did not have a winning season and in fact Sherman was immediately fired for doing a terrible job coaching this team. Sounds perfect for the Miami Dolphins. I’m all in! Go Tanny the Manny!
    toot- toot!

    fish dip says nice job CZZI

  • stanger says:

    Interesting from Volin:

    “The Dolphins didn’t have much salary cap room this year to improve the team, but have only $67 million in commitments for next year.”

    Flip side is some players like Long and Bush will be looking for contracts, but still looks like we haven’t been mortgaging our future. Point for Jeffey.

  • Marinofan13 says:

    CZZI,

    Good write. I disagree about trading up for Tanny. I’m “alright” with him @ R1P8 if Sherman gives us his endorsement. I’d rather just trade down altogether. It’s possible he could then still fall to us.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    its amazing we seem to have so many needs and talk about trading down for extra picks. why after 4 years of ireland we seem far away? we only seem to get starters if its our first rd pick, and even then Odrick hasnt been a fill time starter. if ireland cannot draft starting players, how can we draft great players? last year we didnt seem to need so many picks , we traded up for someone that was not special in any way. why do we need picks this year, and last year, didnt need the picks? there is no coherent strategy of team building going on. i hate to say it , but Tanny is only a second round pick, he moved to top ten because of demand, not that he improved. i dont like second rd qbs, i feel you must take one in the first, but now i feel conflicted.

    do we really get a first rd qb if we select Tanny at 8? i dont think so, i think hes a second rounder that got pushed up cause of high demand. im not overly concerned with the over value if we get our man in the end. but i hate to say it, i have some legitamate doubts on Tanny. we know hes not NFL ready, but could take too long for our patience. im not sure this is the right way to go here, but i go along with the consensus if sherman feels he is,, then pull the trigger and hope for the best

  • jetssuck says:

    great video. I have to admit this is the 1st time seeing this much video of him. I like him but like any draft choice it’s a crap shot. I still think they should go OL in the 1st.

  • fish dip says:

    fish dip also posted on previous blog here 2 days ago,
    The Dolphins will have aprox 53 Million in cap space for 2013 :)

    have a HAARPy day :(

  • fish dip says:

    Cannot believe the dumbed downed sheeple of Tanny!

    He can KISS MY FANNY!

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    the only other option i can think of besides drafting Tanny at 8, is trade down for a copl picks, and get brandon weeden in here, hes more nfl ready and mature than most all the rest. football age is differant than actual age, the wear and tear of the seasons piles up. case in point, we all saw how Marinos body got hammered, and his knees got worse as the grind went on. 38 year old knees are ok, but not so much if they have been pounded on for 17 years. Weeden has no NFL beatings yet, lol he prolly has 10-12 years in him if he stays healthy.

    if the guy can play this year, and we get two more picks out of the deal, im starting to think this is our best shot out of limited chances available instead of overpaying for some qb to help us years later?

  • Dink says:

    weeden.

  • fish dip says:

    Okay Sheeple

    U just watched Tannehill LOSE 2 games in the videos above

    U just watched Tannehill throw 4 INTs and only 2 TDs grand total in both games combined

    U just watched Tannehill get outplayed by 2 opposing QBs, Wilson & Weeden

    Tannehill threw 35 times for 247 YDs 0 TDs 1 INT
    Wilson threw for 581 YDs 2 TDs 0 INTs

    Tannehill threw 47 times for 309 YDs 2 TDs 3 INTS
    Weeden threw for 438 YDs 2 TDs 0 INTs

    and these are good Tannehill highlights on a blog anointing Tannehill to Miami @ #8

    C’Mon Sheeple! Can u SEE ? Can u think 4 yourselves?

    No Wonder they cannot see the Global Aerosol Spray Program , Chem-trails in the sky right over their heads!

    smh

    Go Bless U !

    • jetssuck says:

      u are too funny with the chem-trails. My wife was watching a movie several weeks ago about a conspiracy with chem-trails and I thought of u. I caught the end of the si-fi movie where the scientists had the vaccine to save all the people.

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    Look on the bright side….If we draft T-Hill and he flops at QB, we can switch him to WR. Doubles our chances of getting a starter!

  • fish dip says:

    Good point Phelonius Phish

    The Dolphins are known for signing players that are diversified & can play below average at many positions,
    … and master NONE :(

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    while i dont completly agree with fish dip, he does raise some valid points in my mind. Tanny isnt really the number 8 pick, we are being pushed to do this, its not really the best move for our team imo.

    we should have got our qb years ago, its so difficult now. im beginning to think we shouldnt pick Tanny at 8, its not really what we want or need, we just desperately need a qb so bad, and the options are so limited. as bad as i want a qb for our team, Tanny wont be what we need for years, and cost us the number 8 pick now. i think weeden is a wiser choice, wont cost us so much,. and if he fails, wont hurt us so much,

    trade down, get a extra 2 and 3, and go with weeden. we will have room to pursue FA qb or possibly select another one if weeden doenst pan out. first rd picks are too valuable to squander imo, gotta be a sure bet, and play right away

  • fish dip says:

    Look now we not only draft this extreme reach at #8 or even trade up further (lol) to get him but
    we also START him

    Post Script: “If they get T-Hill, he will have a good chance to start since I believe he has knowledge of the Playbook, due to his association with Sherman.”

    ROTFALMAO!

  • fish dip says:

    Is that the same knowledge that got Sherman FIRED from this college team or the same knowledge that helped Tanny throw 29 in-completions and 3 more INTs in only one game against Texas?

    Hell
    We should start Tanny against Tom Brady!

    smh

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    fish dip, i feel Tanny is at minimum one year away from starting, and even then, we dont know how good he will be? how do anyof us know that Tanny is any better than Henne who got 36 starts and never panned out? do we really want to see Tanny tossing picks and games in the garbage in 2013, and 2014 before cutting him, and starting over again in 2015? there is a lot riding on this decision, we have to explore all angles before picking the number 8 guy

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    all picks and decisons have a reward/risk element to it that has to be considered.

    Tanny at 8 Reward

    nothing this year, possibly years later we have either a franchise qb or the next journeyman of the NFL QB

    Tanny at 8 risk

    he doesnt make it, set us back three years, the coaches get fired, and we have no qb in 2015

  • fish dip says:

    Tannehill against Texas in 2011

    Tannehill threw 49 times in this game for a whopping 224 YDs w 29 footballs going to no one and incomplete,
    3 INTs and another loss for Tannehill and Mike Sherman who was subsequently FIRED

    smh

  • Rockphin says:

    JUST DO IT! Take Tannehill @ 8 and continue his development! He doesn’t need 2-3 years. He will be ready after one IMO. Get our guy NOW and get him in the system continuing his education.

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    All said and done, I would just as soon trade down for the extra picks and start Moore. If they pick Tannehill at 8, fine, but I don’t think they will. A top ten QB should be franchise material (unless you’re the Bi-Plane – then you trade up for a Sanchize QB) and I din’t think anybody is sure Tannehill will be.

  • fish dip says:

    #8 DeCastro is the smartest pick for Miami

    Protect Matt Moore and Run Reggie, Run!

    Open holes for RB Daniel Thomas >>>

    Go Phins!

  • drg says:

    As with Flynn, I think we are in good hands with the decision makers on Tanehill. A lot of us didn’t like the decision on Flynn, but time will tell if that was a wise move.

    Personally, I am more impressed with Weeden. Add to that the likelihood that Weeden will be available lower in the draft and it’s even more attractive an option.

    Just can’t help but feel that there are only two elite QB prospects in this draft and making a bold or significant trade to get anyone else would be foolish. I want a young QB to develop as much as anyone, but I don’t feel that Tanny, Weeden, or any of the other QBs are worth trading up for.

    Maybe trading a 2nd and 3rd to move up for Weeden, but absolutely, positively, NO to trading up from #8 to get Tannehill. If we select him at #8 I’ll be happy with the pick and excited that our coaches feel like they got their guy.

  • Dbolt says:

    As I said before we have more info on him than anyone and if they feel he is the answer they will draft him and if not they will move on.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    im not seeing a huge differance of Tanny over other qbs in the draft that are available for much less risk. i think Philbin will do a fine job here,but lets not handicap him with the wrong decision. i say trade down, get extra picks, Philbin wants to build through the draft? there ya go, very solid strategy for us.

    if a Weeden, Cousins, Osweiler,. or other qb works out, great, if not, we dont get the coaches fired over a failed draft pick. i want to see Philbin build our team through the draft, lets get him some extra picks and let him do what he is hired to do.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    we all can name first rd picks that were busts, russell, leaf, etc, but lets look at how bad it hurt the team? set back for years?

    we cant be afraid to go for our man, but to over value a guy because of demand, and hes not going to have infinite time and patience to get his shit together, im beginning to frown on tanny at 8

  • BoulderPhinFan says:

    taking him at 8 is a reach but trading up for him is ludicrous. IF he’s there and sherman feels he’ll be a frachise QB then take him. but don’t trade up.

  • Dbolt says:

    David,
    Almost every QB prospect is overvalued anymore. Tannehill is a legit 1st round prospect. His return on investment would be quicker with Miami than almost any other team in the league so he may hold more value for Miami at number 8 than most other teams. I don’t agree with FD on almost anything,, but I do agree that Decastro to Miami is also a great move as he and Fleener are the only can’t miss prospects that will be available at our pick. Please remember every QB has their warts and that includes the two at the top of the draft. I try to never make claims in definitive forms and the most definitive claim you will see from me is what I said about Decastro and Fleener.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    the general consensus seems to be that Sherman knows more about Tanny than we do, so lets see what he thinks.
    im only exploring the options that are available, i really wanted RG3! lol too late for that now, so we will see

    • Dbolt says:

      I whole heartedly agree with you on this. There are plenty of guys in this draft who can succeed at the position IF they are put in the system that best utilizes their abilities.

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    I would still like to see us trade back a few spots and maybe pick up another 2. Or even pick up picks in next year’s draft that could be used to move if we wanted to.

    • stanger says:

      I’d trade #8 for a 2nd and a 2013 1st from a team in the top half of the draft in a second.

      I think in a past life Bellicheck was the head of my team……….I am paying for past sins in this one. :)

      • Phelonius Phish says:

        LOL….hate him or not BB plays the game well. Always pissed me off in the past when the Pats would have 11 or 12 picks and we only had 6 or 7.

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    I disagree about drafting O=Line that high. They are readily available later. Kind of like RB.

    • fish dip says:

      Tannehill = 3 – 5 yr set back for Miami

      Tannehill = Black outs

      Tannehill = Bust

      Tannehill = 3 yr clip board holder

      Tannehill = Desperation

      Tannehill = No impact player @ #8

      Tannehill = Miami 4-12

      Tannehill = Miami Dolphin’s laughing stock of the NFL

      Tannehill = Steven Ross sitting in the stands alone on w another 0-7 start on game day wearing nothing but his underwear and chaps muttering to himself w a half empty bottle of scotch

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    if im the bills or eagles GM, and i see that Sherman actually decides to pass on Tanny at 8? this would jolt me to my core and make me go a differant direction. Tanny could then drop to late first round or second rd

  • stanger says:

    One of the top 6 drops.
    Tanny
    Decastro
    Ingram
    Coples.

    If we don’t trade down are there any other realistic options at #8?

    (And I’m not buying Floyd in this deep wideout draft.)

    • Phelonius Phish says:

      Maybe Mercilus.

      I think Coples drops big. Don’t know if DiCastro will be considered a drop if goes in the 20’s – not much premium on interior OL.

    • Dbolt says:

      Honestly, I believe Decastro will rise while Coples will fall, but that’s just me.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    im not high o n Fleener because i feel Clay will break out this year, and Fasano will do better if he doesnt have to change colombos diaper all the fucking time . Colombo was a huge mistake that in all probability wont be repeated soon, lol
    Fasano and Clay will give us what we need from the TE position, plus we have an accountant/TE to help them with their taxes,lol

  • Mike E. says:

    Baaaa Baaaa – I want Tannehill!

    Great write up CZZI, and nice job using some video as well. Well done!

    You know I agree we should take Tannehill at #8, make no mistake about it.

  • MCP13 says:

    Nice Write up CZZI ,

    I am ok with R1P8 with Tanny but would not trade up. I would love to see a trade down (maybe Seattle) and pick up a couple extra picks. I think we need to solidify the right side of the line I like Decastro, with Cousins being our QB pick with a couple of extra picks to boot we can add WR and DE as well.

      Ah…I wasn’t sure what it had to do with my post…that ‘splains it.

      • fish dip says:

        Well the 2 videos of Tannehill throwing 4 Interceptions and only 2 TDS, getting out played by QB Wilson & QB Weeden -both throwing for WAY more yards and throwing 0 INTS did not convince me that we should pick the worst QB in the videos and start him against Tom Brady

        but then again everyone says:

        I Must Be Crazy?

        I Must Be Nuts!

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    So, Fish Dip….are you saying you don’t like Tannehill?

    P Phish….been meaning to ask about your avi. Is that a red tint I see around the mammal phish?

  • Mike E. says:

    Fish,

    I don’t think so man. I think it’s good for Jeffy that he overcame his fear of getting a legit QB here in MIA. He’s tried OH SO HARD not to, with Henne, and then brings in Matt Moore, whom Ireland didn’t want to let anywhere near the starting job until Henne got a real bad boo boo. So Moore goes out to have a pretty good year, and only has this year left on his contract, and brings in injured QB David Garrard.

    Do you see a pattern here Fish? Ireland fears the QB position, he’s terrified of going out on a limb for one, and making that commitment. Drafting Tannehill at #8, will be a big move for Ireland, one that will finally give him legitimacy, because he addressed the QB position. I’m excited Fish, because I think Ireland is finally going to fill the spot he hasn’t yet done as MIA GM.

    Fish, you can beat on me all you like if within 2 years, Tannehill is not starting, and winning games for MIA. I will not run and hide, and I can own up to my mistakes. I think Tannehill sits this year, and learns behind Moore and Garrard, and then possibly next year, he’s ready to compete for the starting job. It’s time for Ireland to get the best QB that’s available, and that’s going to be Tannehill at #8.

    • fish dip says:

      Drafting this pathetic piece of garbage QB will only get Ireland FIRED!

      Tanny sucks!

      look at the stats and watch the videos

      watch another one:

    Just returned from a successful and very interesting coin show in Orlando. –Tryin’ to get caught up on all the wonderful articles published the last 4-5 days — EXCELLENT STUFF FELLAS — TAKE A BOW, ESPECIALLY U PIGGY!!

    Now I’m waiting for the FIRST ARTICLE BY A FEMALE DOLFAN —- Miss Gigi, Herdfan, or some other lady who loves the fins!! –LET’S HEAR FROM YOU!!

    And if you girls want to be totally sexist regarding the topic, I’m OK with that. –A lady at a convention I attended a couple of years ago told me there exists an article entitled “The Best Buns in the NFL!” –It alledgedly was written by a former cheerleader who wrote it under a “Nom de Plume,” for those of you conversant in French.

    I believe most of us would prefer English, or a reasonable facsimile of same.

    And, truthfully, since women ARE smarter, an article that appeals to our intellectual/analytical nature would be even more preferred by your’s truly. That’s a polite way of saying I’m not quite as raunchy as I was way back in my 50’s. –Ah, the ravages of time!

  • Ken says:

    CZZI:

    I completely agree that the coaching staff is in place to develop a QB. It is the perfect time to draft and develop. Tannehill is a great prospect for that. The only drawback to drafting him at this point is that there is likely no immediate bang for your buck. He will need time to sit. That said the talent is there and the coaching is there. It is time to draft a QB.

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    Stanger – Yes, that is red. Just a reminder that dolphins are apex predators.

        I have seen the Japanese kill…very bad.

        If you could see the picture better you would see that the dolphin has been hunting….even it’s teeth are still red.

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    Mike E., if they take Tannehill at 8 I’ll assume that they, being professionals, have determined that he is a franchise QB and I’ll be happy about it. That said, if they don’t I’ll assume the opposite is true. I disagree about Ireland not wanting Moore to start last year. That’s a coaches call. Ireland brought Moore in and I saw enough to be okay with starting him again if we need to. I think the play calling and the lack of an offensive line were as much to blame for the teams failure as anything.

  • Dink says:

    Tannehill threw 47 times for 309 YDs 2 TDs 3 INTS

    I’m just using that (Moore not starting over Henne) to fit my agenda. Shhhhhh. lol

  • Mike E. says:

    Fish,

    I am due for a check up, but regardless, a BLIND MAN can see that Ireland is afraid to go out on a limb to get a QB. lol

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Mike, this might be a shock to you so sit down first, lol
    im with ya on our past failures to secure the qb we need to be a winner again, and im all for bold moves to make it happen. its the player himself im not sold on.
    Tanny is incredibly raw, and we all know that a few years of mishaps will enrage the fan base at the now swelling 4, 5, 6 years in a row of losing seasons. if philbin gets fired in 2015 cause tanny didnt work out, then we lost a greatcoach, and starting over again three years later.
    avoid the high risk this time cause Tannys not worth it and not better thanWeeden who we could trade down for and get extra picks. Philbin could use the extra picks cause he wants to build through the draft, this is a win win for us imo

  • Mike E. says:

    David,

    He’s actually ahead of Kaepernick though, because the kind of offense Kaep played in at Nevada, “The Pistol” was nowhere near what kind of offense we were going to be running here in MIA, or anywhere else in the NFL. Now as far as Tanny is concerned, it will be exactly the offense he was running with Sherman at Texas A&M. See what I mean bro? He’s way ahead of the curve. He just needs some Emeril seasoning, and he will be ready to compete next year.

  • The Flying Pig says:

    If Tannehill is a bust won’t set Miami back 5 years

    Henne probably set Miami 2-3 years. Henne wasn’t a bust IMO just not the guy – hisflirtation with being an average qb cost us a year or 2

    Busts don’t set thier teams back 5 years…lol. You know rift away that they are bad. You loose a 1st rounder if thou is a bust but not half a decade…lol

    fine, some people don’t like the guy. But please try to keep perspective.

  • Mike E. says:

    MCP – I can guarantee you he (Weeden) would most definitely be in the running, and possible even earlier bro.

  • The Flying Pig says:

    Personally I think Tannehill is a much better prospect than Kaep was …I apologize to te chiffon robes for this

  • Mike E. says:

    Piggy,

    I agree with you that Tanny is a better prospect than Kaep. I wanted to take Kaep in the early second RD, and never thought he would have been worthy of the #15 pick. I do believe Tanny is worth it at #8.

  • Gigi says:

    Old Dolfan: How did you know I was working on something?! I am once it is ready will give to Walker. Glad you had a great weekend!! :)

  • Dbolt says:

    If Weeden was 22 and is where he is at right now, he’d be talked about possibly #1 overall. At this point the physical player you see now on the field is what you get 5yrs from now. His biggest growth will come mentally. When you look at the top 3 QBs in this draft all have the potential to still get physically better and will continue to mentally mature as well. That’s why it’s a fine line with Weeden.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Mike,the dolphins have run the pistol before, and i think kapernick is special with his arm strength and velocity. we could have traded down and got kapernick, get some extra picks and a qb to work and develop. this is what im suggesting we do this year, trade down and get weeden, cousins or someone to develop if sherman truly believes Tanny is worth the 8, i guess we go with it

    from where i am sitting, i dont see any evidence that Tanny is better than Weeden, but well see on draft day

    • Dbolt says:

      David,
      As of right now Weeden is a more accurate passer than Tannehill and if in the right situation can win rookie of the year. Physically Ryan Tannehill is superior and is a dual threat that Weeden will never be. You, MD FO, has to decide if you want to take Weeden as is or do you place your bet with a guy who is already physically better and still has more room for growth.

  • MCP13 says:

    Mike E

    That’s what makes the Tanny pick so interesting! He is full of potential, but can it be pulled out and just how fast it takes is the guessing game. I read earlier that Gruden had high regard Weeden and Peter King says Weeden is rising in the draft.

  • Mike E. says:

    MCP,

    Problem with Weeden is, he needs a year to get settled into the NFL as well. Everything I’ve heard and read indicates that he is NOT ready to start, so by the time he IS ready, he will be 31. No thanks, that’s just not a good idea. Continuity is a wonderful thing, and that’s what keeps the Patriots, Giants, Steelers and Packers near the top every year, that they have the same QB for a long time. Know what I mean? Weeded will be gone in 4-5 years, so you never get that decade long run of excellence.

  • Old Dolfan says:

    MISS GIGI; Glad you’re going to write an article — REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!!

    sINCE YOU ARE A young, I stress YOUNG LADY, Have you heard of, or seen, that article “The Best Buns in the NFL?”

  • Ken says:

    Everyone is talking bust factor. The bust factor for QBs has been mitigated by the new CBA. It will still hurt if you miss but no where like it would when you are giving away 60 million dollars. That kills a cap for years to come. With the new rookie wage the scale the effects of missing on a QB won’t hurt the cap as bad as in years past. It still will hurt a little but not the same. Teams can afford to take the risk.

    • MCP13 says:

      good point!

    • Dbolt says:

      Outside of Decastro and Fleener I think that there’s a bust factor with almost everyone in this draft who will be available at number 8. In fact Tannehill and RGIII are in the same boat regarding bust factor. I think both will be successful due to their physical abilities and their scholastic track records.

  • fish dip says:

    Mike E

    Ireland had a chance to land Tebow, even as a back -up QB

    U saw what happened when Tebow played in Denver and the City and Nation went absolutely NFL crazy

    If u could only imagine what Tebow could have done for the Miami Dolphin”s franchise that has lost miserably for 5 yrs in row
    except for the exception of using a JETS QB for one year

    Even if 24 yr Tebow was only a back up instead of injured 34 yr old Garrard, fans from all over the state would have flocked to the stadium in droves. If Tebow started winning or even playing good , you would NOT even be able to purchase one single ticket to watch the Dolphins because they would be sold out in advance

    U people from out of state that our haters of Tebow (not sure why) HAVE NO IDEA how big and how much excitement this
    Hybrid FB/QB brings to Florida fans on game day
    Florida is his Home, not fucking NY JETS!

    Ireland is a fucking idiot

    If the GM and coach is too stupid to run a a system that showcases a Hometown Super Hero player of this caliber
    The best player to ever come out of college (better rusher than Walter Payton) and Winning Starting NFL QB on a 1-4 team and takes the Helm and goes 6-1 b4 becoming the Best 2011 Red Zone QB ( the fish’s biggest problem scoring in the red zone) in the NFL, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers #1 defense passing for 316 YDs and on his first pass in OT WINNING! and they watch Tebow get traded to (YUK!) NY JETS then screw these inept hapless morons you call the Miami Dolphin Brain Stems!

    let em keep scavenging the ground for and sifting through the others trash piles for acorns

    Miami Dolphins Black outs Are Imminent!

  • Rockphin says:

    STUPIDITY! UTTER STUPIDITY RIGHT UP THERE WITH FUCKING CHEM TRAILS! TEBOW THE SAVIOR!

  • Gigi says:

    Rockphin: Where is your darn avatar man?!

  • fish dip says:

    The biggest negative regarding Tannehill is not his wearing of woman’s underwear, it’s his limited body of work. Although he played five years at Texas A&M, he redshirted his first year and then played receiver his next two seasons before taking over at quarterback midway through his junior season.

    Trumped up Tanny also threw nine interceptions in his biggest games last year, against Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Texas, all losses.

    Former Colts president Bill Polian, who was preparing for this year’s draft before being fired in January, said he had Tannehill rated in the 20s on his draft board and called him a “developmental guy.”

    “He needs one year, maybe two or three behind an experienced guy,” Polian said.

    Most insiders agree on that point. Mayock said Tannehill “will get eaten alive” if he has to play in 2012. ESPN’s Mel Kiper said Tannehill “will be a bust” if forced into early action.

    Even McShay, a big proponent of Tannehill’s, said, “You better be prepared to sit him for at least the majority of the season and hope he can translate his slow moving college game into the fast paced NFL.”

They got so lucky(?) they sucked, and sucked real bad at the right time, I just couldn’t tolerate them being rewarded for that with Luck and Fleener. I would hope we would trade up ahead of them to take him. Personally, I would bet serious cash, that if he’s available to the Giants at #32, he foes there.

    • Gigi says:

      I put that because I know you and a couple of the guys love Fleener. There are certain teams — N.E., Indy that the NFL just loveees and somehow even when they suck they will get lucky. Meanwhile, we have the #8 pick and sweating bullets. SMH

    “This is one of the more intriguing stories of the 2012 draft,” former Denver Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist said on NFL Network last month. “… I feel like, to a certain degree, Ryan Tannehill has been pushed up artificially by the media and some of the pundits.”

    How’s your love life working out? lol

            This at leas the third sarcastic shot at Tebow mention Because he is not plowing every VAGINA of the thousands of women that would throw down for him and for following his faith and being an excellent role model for kids &being a morally a good person

            Asking some one how their love life is going? is not anything detrimental and certainly does not need u to step in , in a threatening manner

    Greetings here is some news from Minnesota yes the Vikings
    Charley Walters: Vikings’ draft plans could be changed by Dolphins’ need for QB
    Pioneer Press
    Posted: 04/14/2012 12:01:00 AM CDT
    Updated: 04/14/2012 10:42:27 PM CDT

    The Vikings still are expected to choose offensive left tackle Matt Kalil with the No. 3 overall pick in the April 26 draft. But the Miami Dolphins’ apparent appetite for quarterback Ryan Tannehill from Texas A&M should at least tease Vikings general manager Rick Spielman.

    Miami has the No. 8 pick in the draft. The Dolphins, who lost to Denver in the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, then lost to Seattle in the battle for former Packers backup Matt Flynn, need a QB. The Dolphins can hope that Tannehill falls to them at No. 8, or ensure themselves of getting him by trading with the Vikings.

    For Minnesota’s No. 3 pick, Miami probably would have to give up its No. 8, plus its second- and third-round picks. The Vikings clearly are rebuilding; a deal like that could be tantalizing to them.

    The Vikings would lose out on Kalil, but at No. 8 they probably could get Riley Reiff, a left offensive tackle from Iowa, plus two other high picks with which to fill glaring holes. Also, the Vikings would have the No. 8 pick in each round of the draft. It’s certainly worth considering.

    Tannehill, by the way, is being prepared for the draft by former Heisman Trophy winner and Cretin-Derham Hall grad Chris Weinke at the IMG Madden Football A cademy QB camp in Bradenton, Fla.

    • Ken says:

      To me trading up to no. 3 does not make a lot of sense. Not that I am opposed to trading up for a QB but if we were going to do that to get to no. 3 we should have bit the bullet and traded up to no. 2 and get RG III who is a significantly better prospect.

    • stanger says:

      “Miami Dolphins’ apparent appetite for quarterback Ryan Tannehill”

      Since I am pretty sure that the MN papers don’t have Ireland on spped dial, I’ll assume reports of that hunger come from the Vikes front office hoping to clean up on such a trade.

  • BoulderPhinFan says:

    If the browns take tannehill at 4 then I think we should really try and trade back a few spots and take De-Castro.

  • The Flying Pig says:

    I’m not interested in your love life
    Actually, I’m not interested in discussing anything with anyone without a sense of humor, so why don’t we just agree to ignore one another

    • fish dip says:

      Sorry didn’t know love life was that bad
      Wont bring it up again

      Found that particle joke (for like the 3rd time, offensive)
      Tebow is one of the best role models for kids in sports today. As well as the missionary work he does in third world countries
      Maybe u should read his book and get to know a lil more without being prejudice and hateful towards the man

      “Tim Tebow -Through My Eyes”

      Have a hard cover copy here could send it to u if u like when son finishes reading it

      God Bless U, Piggy

  • The Flying Pig says:

    Gigi,

    I actually am a big fan of Bosh. I always have been. He does play soft though. I don;t think every power forward needs to be a Charles Oakley type

    I wish he would rebound consistently more.

    • Gigi says:

      He was badass yesterday, 16 pts. & 14 rebounds. I like him a lot, Finsnation rips on him but we really need a center and he is not one. He needs to attack the basket like he did yesterday and when he does he gets more rebounds. When he settles for jumpers his rebound totals are lower.

      Because celebrities this big have to keep their privacy

  • Rgs322 says:

    At this point, the only thing that will piss me off is if Miami trades up to #3. If Tanny is there at #8, fine. But to trade up when this team needs all the picks they can get to basically rebuild the offense, is just bull. Oh, let’s give up all our picks for the first 2 days for a pick who won’t even see the field for at LEAST 1 year. I like Tannehill, but not that much.

  • fish dip says:

    John Elway actually said he would like Tim Tebow to marry his daughter

    Think all parents would be happy to have Tim (not just Tim Knight) for a son

    or he could be like Cromartie on the Jets:

    10 kids from eight women in six states. Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, 27, recently had his second child with wife Terricka, making 10 — one short of a football squad. Their baby boy, Jagger, joins sister Jurzie — and eight half-siblings from Cromartie baby mamas across the country.

    God Bless

    Be Thankful their are role models like Tim Tebow

    Cannot fathom the hatred for him

    and yes fish dip has one heck of a sense of humor :)

  • Rgs322 says:

    Give me DeCastro and McClellin with our first 2 picks and I’ll be a happy fan.

  • Rockphin says:

    It’s not hatred it is being tired of hearing non-stop about a QB who flat out sucks! the Tebow love is unprecedented and comes with NO GOOD REASON. If the kid was a good QB that would be one thing but he is one of the WORST QB’s to ever have the good fortune to have his team mates win a game for him.

    • Gigi says:

      I love him as a person but then again so do most females. He is scary as a QB because he can’t hit anything for 3 quarters, then all of a sudden he makes plays. Until his voice changes/deepens and he gets that aw shucks look off his face I maintain he has no carnal knowledge of a female…..lol.

      • fish dip says:

        so he cannot pleasure a woman yet, and can’t eat a peach for hours?
        but u would be willing to help teach him if u were single? lol

        • Gigi says:

          LOL fish dip. I’m not against what you are saying, I am a Tebow fan and think more young men should look up to him as a role model. As opposed to Warren Cromartie who has 10 kids with 8 different women from 6 different states….SMH.

    • fish dip says:

      Believe your hatred has absolutely clouded your common sense, as well as the facts
      How can u go 6-1 starting in the NFL on a team that was 1-4 w the same team mates and beat the Steelers in the Playoffs and be the Best 2011 NFL QB in the Red Zone, beat the snot out of the Dolphins

      and in Rockphin’s world despite all the facts and stats that say otherwise, be the worst QB in the NFL?

      What u say Rockphin makes absolutely no sense and is not true

      What u say comes from deep hatred within u

      Try looking up some facts and stats on who the worst NFL QB was in 2011 and what QBs lead their teams to victory, to the Playoffs , won in the Playoffs

      The NFL league that fish dip was watching the Patriots were the only team better than Tim Tebow and the Broncos

  • Mike E. says:

    Who cares about Tebow the QB(?), or the celebrity? He’s a friggin’ Jet !!! He wanted to be a Jet, and he’s excited to be a Jet ! F him, and F the Jets !!!

    • fish dip says:

      what about Sparano, him too?

    • Gigi says:

      Evidently New Yorkers aren’t too thrilled since he got booed at the Yankees game last night. I did not get that — he was wearing a Yankees cap…lol.

  • fish dip says:

    Hey Rockphin,

    fish dip is a complete and utter ass and u should hate him and everything he blogs!

    There

    Now that we have that established

    fish dip is “Huckleberry” for hatred, u have someone to vent on, u should now feel better

    You can be happy and we can move forward

    How bout some fish news, Where do think Bell ends up at safety and what are the Dolphins going to do to replace him?

  • Mike E. says:

    F Sparano too! I think he’s a good guy, as is Tebow, but once you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet, and I’m a “Shark” (Dolphin)

  • stanger says:

    “Who cares about Tebow the QB(?), or the celebrity? He’s a friggin’ Jet !!! ”

    Mike E — I very much care about Tebow THE JET.

    Almost wants me want to subscribe to the NY Post just for the back covers next year in the week after Yet losses……and I have a feeling there will be more than a few.

    God Bless Tim Tebow for going to JetLand!

  • Mike E. says:

    I hated that JT went to the Jets, but I was one that didn’t blame him.

  • Rockphin says:

    I just don’t get the love for the worst QB to ever be a “starter” in the NFL

    Tim Tebow, QB DEN 271 126 46.5 1,729 6.38 56 12 6 33 72.9

    46.5%??? I could do better and I’ve go TWO bum knees.

    • Gigi says:

      He wins — that is the only reason doesn’t matter how bad he may look in doing so that is all that matters to some. I was worried Ross was going to make us pick him up from the Broncos when he got released. Would it bring a ton of fans to the stadium? Yes. But you’d also lose a ton as well. He is a polarizing figure. I like him as a person but glad he is not our starter. It will be a soap opera in NY with Sanchez and him….should be must watch tv!

  • Mike E. says:

    Rock,

    I gotta axe you somethin’? On the login screen for this site, do you have gravatar as the website under your name, where it says website?

  • fish dip says:

    So now Rockphin your also a better hybrid QB/FB than Tim Tebow ? Hmmm ….

    Do u think u would have score more than the (3) times Tebow lead his teammates to score against the Dolphins in the last 2:44 in the game?

    Rockphin, u def should try out for the Miami Dolphins as starting QB

    Not only are u intelligent , u r also a far superior athlete to the Best Red Zone QB in the 2011 NFL

    Go Rockphin!

  • The Flying Pig says:

    I think Tebow might just not like women and that explains who he is
    Virginity is nothing to admire
    Cromartie doesn’t use protection or birth control and is pretty reckless
    As far as I know, a man can have an active sex life and not have 8 kids…lol

    Only some one who doesn’t like or know anything about sex would compare the two as if they are the only two options for men

    Vagina bless you Fish Dip. Vagine Bless you

  • fish dip says:

    Did anyone ever research how QB John Elway did and how he looked in his first 8 games starting? and losing?
    Think QB Tebow and his relentless training and determination will prove once again he can easily beat the Dolphins

    Passing like he did against them in the end. Throwing a TD pass in the end zone against sean smith with ease for the first score. And even thought he whole world knew Tebow was going to run. Ran it right up the Dolphins Gut for a 2 point conversion to tie the game. Then passed and ran against the Dolphins 6th ranked defense to get get the kicker in position to win the game.

    Then off to beat the Steelers #1 defense in the Playoffs

    When is the last time the Miami Dolphins beat the Steelers in the Playoffs?

    Just wondering, anyone know?

  • Mike E. says:

    Fish,

    That argument blows man. Way too many people were using that same bullshit argument about Henne. Henne is what he is, and so is Tebow. Career parallels mean nothing. Tebow can’t throw the ball like Elway, and never will. It’s just not a good comparison IMO.

    • fish dip says:

      No but Elway cannot run like FB Tebow and Tebow shows he is a winner and can get it done

      Getting u a Tebow Jets jersey for the holiday season,

      that way u can cheer for a winner and wont get laughed at and beat up in the meadowlands w your Garrard jersey on ;)

    I have http://www.gravatar.com as the website in that line. I don’t understand, unless it’s because I have a different e-mail address for WordPress than I do for Gravatar. (My Gravatar e-mail address is no longer valid, I had a comcast account, but my new neighborhood doesn’t get comcast.)

  • fish dip says:

    Well it wasn’t the Playoffs, but the Phins were trying to get in the backdoor if Houston lost and they could beat the Steelers

    here is what went down:

    After Chad Henne and Pat White both left the game with injuries, Pat White clinging to life and being removed on a stretcher and taken immediately to the hospital, Tyler Thigpen rallied Miami with two TDs to cut the deficit to 27-24, but then threw interceptions on the Dolphins’ final two drives.

    • Miami finished the season with three straight losses and its 7-9 record is their third losing season in the last four years.

    Man, if we only had a QB/FB like Tebow 6.3 and 245lbs
    Than we could have won and lil Pat White would not have been knocked out and knocked out of football 4 ever!

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Tim Tebow was drafted the year after the season you are referring too
      Try not to let your crush on him consume the facts

      Hah hah, just kidding Fish Dip
      God Bless You Fish Dip

      • fish dip says:

        Completely aware of that, was saying if Miami had a QB/FB running the football the size and strength of Tebow over lil Pat White than we may have won.
        Pat White was injured/knocked out /career over trying to RUN the football

        and Tebow beat the Steelers throwing & running

        • The Flying Pig says:

  • Dink says:

    do not be surprised if the Dolphins select a QB that they have not shown as much public interest in. Two names that come to mind: Brandon Weeden and Kirk Cousins. The Dolphins haven’t had a private workout or visit with either of those two qb’s. And, if you were wondering, YES, the Dolphins have selected players in the past that they haven’t shown public interest in.

    .

      That is a classic Ireland move to show in no interest in a player. Not work him out and or meet with him and yet still draft him. And we wonder why we have had 3 losing seasons in a row.

    YOUNG STANGER; Great to see your thoughts on this blog. Someone mentioned getting eight girls pregnant in six different states (was it Miss GIGI?). Well, there’s a NEW CONTENDER for the SHAWN KEMP AWARD. –You remember Kemp, right?–NBA center at Portland who was paying child support to 10 DIFFERENT WOMEN, HAVING FATHERED 12 KIDS WHILE MARRIED!!–Became known as “The Father of His COUNTY in Clackamas County (Quackamas) Oregon.!!–Child support got so out of hand Kemp demanded — and GOT — a trade from Portland to Cleveland — just to avoid child support payments!!

    NOW ANYBODY who demands a trade TO Cleveland obviously IS NOT a rocket scientist ! ! ! — But Kemp took this to a new level!!!–Alledgedly got two more girls pregnant in Cleveland before being cut and forced to retire (from basketball, NOT child making). SO A NEW AWARD WAS “ERECTED” IN HIS HONOR — The Shawn Kemp Award!!

    Newest “con” testant is Warren “I’m A” Sapp!! HIS tally of getting 5 diff. girls pregnant so far doesn’t “measure up” to Kemp’s semen-ly untouchable total of 12 different knock-ups — but it’s a good start for a guy only 39!! –And, as any good mormon polygamist might say, “Sapp’s best years are yet to come!” The fact that Sapp’s filing for bankruptcy might earn him sympathy from certain ladies so — since he’s STILL bringing in several million dollars per year, you never know what opportunities might “come up” for Warren.

    So I take the time to read all of yous bullshit and when I finally phucken get and post sometin nobody is phucken here.

    And every poster on the ss is writing gigantic books for every post I just can’t even follow it. You get the history of the entire draft process in every post when all you need to say is either, “I like this guy” or “I think he sucks”.

  • Gigi says:

    Old Dolfan: Cromartie from the Jets has 10 kids, from 8 different women who live in 6 different states….LOL, SMH!!

    Hiya Son!!!

  • son of a son of a shula says:

    The old Dip was fired up about the Fins. Not that long ago when he made his name calling for a home game in ’10. I would say concentrate more on Philbin, I believe he’s going to take over the franchise and is. I think Ireland is here mostly as scout and head task master but Philbin is steering the ship. His guys, his plans, his coaches – his Time. Let’s put the last few years behind us and more forward, there are some nice players on this team lets see what they can do with them.

    Am I making myself clear Private Pyle?

  • son of a son of a shula says:

    Hi Gigi

    And most of Cromarties kids are all 3 well were 3 at the time maybe 6 of the 10 are now like 5.

    • Gigi says:

      Yeah he has a couple that are the same age by different baby’s mamas…..lol. How you doin?

  • Mike E. says:

    Sonny – What’s up brother?

  • czzi says:

    Hey check this out the NFL competition committee says they want to ban kickoffs. Not this year but it is under consideration for the future? http://www.giants.com/news-and-blogs/article-1/Giants-President-John-Mara-on-rule-changes/4251e760-3ad7-431b-bbc8-b37cd5226de9

    Also Jim Ersay (colt’s owner ) tweeted that T-Hill is the quite secret of this years draft. Makes you wonder that the draft will be so ?? Pre draft is where it’s at.

  • Mike E. says:

    I like the Idea of Philbin running the ship, and him telling Ireland which name to put on the card to run up to Goodell. I like that system a lot! lol

  • Mike E. says:

    czzi – Are you Surfin’ Bird?

  • son of a son of a shula says:

    Gigi my youngest daughter got her driver’s liscence today. The most stressful part of parenting if you ask me. I have no control once I hand her the keys just hope she trusts and listens to the lessons I taught her. I need a drink.

  • BoulderPhinFan says:

    I sure philbin and Ireland gonna take tannehill based on what Irsay said. LOL

  • son of a son of a shula says:

    Hey Czzi, nice article man. Good work. Your contributions are appreciated man.

  • Mike E. says:
  • Gigi says:

    Son: My parents made me wait until I was 18 to get my license and they were right to do so (at the time I thought they were Nazis) – lol. Just make rules and keep tabs on her, I don’t know how old she is but you know best. Have that drink!

  • Mike E. says:

    Son – My older son is taking his test Thursday, I just took him out before to practice parallel parking. They teach it so weird in driving school, like a 4 step process. I think they make it harder than it is. Once he gets the keys though, like you said, parking will be the least of my worries. lol

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    Walker – here are my picks:
    Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
    Whitney Mercilus*, DE/OLB, Illinois
    Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
    Stephen Hill*, WR, Georgia Tech
    Amini Silatolu, G/T, Midwestern State
    Joe Long, OT, Wayne State

  • son of a son of a shula says:

    Mike/Gigi, I had a drink and listened to my I-pod a little. I driven with you Gigi it was a good thing they held you back, lol!

    Wasn’t it “Little Miss Sunshine” where they fall asleep but go flying off the highway, squeling bing bang boom and end up in a parking spot, yeah…

  • son of a son of a shula says:

    The pingback works again. Very impressive

  • Gigi says:

    Gee thanks big bro!!! LOL, I swear to you – I only had my license 10 days and wrecked my uncle’s Volvo – totaled it. I was very lucky it was a Volvo or I would have been totaled too.

    • stanger says:

      A Volvo saved my life once too. Hit about the biggest Oak tree you can find at about 40 mph after I fell asleep. I was 18 and yeah, some drinks may have been involved.

      Whole front collapsed into itself, but not into me. Got a hundred or so stiches but only cause my shoulder belt was too loose and my head went high-speed into the steering wheel.

      To this day…..I’m willing to buy any Swede I run across a drink.

      • Chiefen Walker says:

        Same thing happened – the whole front end crushed to the window. My older sister was expecting at the time and on her way to work and saw the car, she thought I was done. Sadly, I had a cousin who drove a Volvo who crashed into a tree and died, he was only 32. He had been up for 2 days and had flown in from California from a business trip and passed out. No alcohol or drugs just exhaustion. :(

        • stanger says:

          Walker — I am so sorry about your cousin, but safer ain’t perfect.

          Does sound like our parents knew us well enough to know what we should be driving though….

  • Marinofan13 says:

    :pottytrain2:

  • son of a son of a shula says:

    Cheers to Volvo, we need you guys around here.

    • Chiefen Walker says:

      Sounds like the Seinfeld episode: Vulva? Aerola? LMAO….

    • stanger says:

      Son — appreciated. And you do understand I was the only kid driving his parents’ hand me down Volvo in our area. :)

  • Gigi says:

    Son: Do you know about pingbacks?

  • Marinofan13 says:

    Walker,

    Sorry to hear that about your cousin, Bro. And for those keeping score at home, my cousin was involved in a pretty horrible wreck many years ago. She was driving a Volvo and it probably saved her life.

  • son of a son of a shula says:

    The first car I drove wasn’t a Volvo it was this gigantic Blue 72 Cadillac. It had Fins…

  • son of a son of a shula says:

    Damn Walker, sorry bro

  • ocalaHowie says:

    Scarred me there for a minute Stanger but since you fell asleep it must not have been you. Unless you bounced off a yellow ’76 Camaro before you woke up.
    When I was about 17 me and my buddy’s where driving to a party drunk and on Ludes when I about missed the turn. So I made a quick left from the right lane and these dudes in a Volvo plowed into my door shot across the other side of the road and right into a tree.
    MY BAD…
    Good thing the cops dindt really check back then if we where Drunk and Stoned…
    GO PHINS!!!

    • stanger says:

      Nah Howie….luckily I was a single car accident specialist.

      But jeez was the drunk and drive ever crazy in those days. Can remember my peeps bragging about how they didn’t remember driving home. Even if the thought of checkpoints still scares the heck out of me on given nights, I understand the need.

  • Rhino says:

    MF13,
    read the Walsh link… walked away with the words “track record” ringing in my ears

  • Gigi says:

    Omar Kelly ‏ @OmarKelly
    You do know there’s a very valid reason Pat Devlin wasn’t drafted, & when he was cut nobody even tried to poach him for months. HELLO?

    Omar Kelly ‏ @OmarKelly
    RT @jbones62: Do u think Cousins is better than Devlin at this point?» Your comparing a 2nd or 3rd rd pick to someone who wasn’t drafted?

  • Phelonius Phish says:

    Son – Had to step out. T o answer your question, Jenkins is predicated on a trade back that brings another 2. Hill in the 3rd.

  • Randy says:

    I can’t see a team that’s trying to bring in young players giving draft picks away to trade up in the draft. Otherwise, Go ahead and take a flier on Tannehill at #8. We are a desperate franchise at this point…may as well start acting like one.

  • Mike E. says:

    M13,

    I read the Walsh link, and I knew immediately what you point you was making. You are quite transparent on Tannehill, as am I :)

  • Mike E. says:

    Just curious – What are you guys going to do if we DO draft Tannehill at #8? Are you going to feel like Jeff caved under pressure, that Ross forced the pick? What’s going to go through your minds? I would like to know?

    I have already said that if we draft Brockers, Coples, Poe or Reiff, I am going to fire something at high speed through my wall at work. lol

    • Marinofan13 says:

      I’ll be alright with Tanny @ R1P8 if Sherman gives his endorsement. I’m being serious, too. “I” would trade down, but that’s just IMHO.

    • Phelonius Phish says:

      I’m going to accept it as they think he’s a franchise QB and get excited about having one of those..

    • BoulderPhinFan says:

      I’m hoping it was philbin’s call.

  • Marinofan13 says:

    Mike E,

    GDP likes Tanny and I like Case like you liked the “Kaeped Crusader” last year, Bro!
    ;)

    • Mike E. says:

      I know it bro! It’s cool. I like that everyone is different, and has different ideas. It would be boring as hell if we all felt the same way. I also know I’m not 100% right in wanting Tannehill at #8. I know he’s a gamble, but I’m willing to take it. I project what he “could” be in 2 years, and I think it could be real good. Taking into account how we’ve played it safe for so long, I think it’s time for a change in strategy.

      • Marinofan13 says:

        A part of me really wants to roll the dice on Tanny (I actually like him, you know). But my mind is telling me “NOT SO FAST”. He just doesn’t have a body of work to take him that high.

        All I can tell you is that I’m going to roll with Ireland/Philbin/Sherman on this decision. I won’t be upset… unless we actually TRADE UP for Tanny. Then, the TV is getting a beat-down. LOL

  • Mike E. says:

    LOL @ M13 – I don’t believe we need to trade up either. Tell you this though, if they DO trade up, I guess that would indicate that they are totally sold on him, and that he will be the starting QB next season for sure.

  • ocalaHowie says:

    Whoa, I didnt catch that about your Cousin Walker, Tragic loss. Sorry about that :(
    I was just kind of laughing about my own incident with a Volvo
    Sad thing for me is those days of my life are the reason I am not flying for Delta Airlines now and am just a Gardener/Meat cutter :)
    GO PHINS!!!

  • Rhino says:

    I’m with MF13 on wishing Tanny was the guy, so we could end all this misery…

    but too much says the opposite. Last time I will beat you people over the head with this… I live in Aggie country, and Aggie’s who went to every game the last 25 years hated Tannehill. The seriously talked about him the way we did Henne.

  • Randy says:

    I think fans are alot more willing to take a chance on players with high draft picks than are NFL execs who’s livelihood is attached to success/failure.

    It’s why most GMs are “by the board” type guys at the top of the draft. If you go by the board…and you’re wrong, at least you were wrong just like most other people….and your chance for failure is smaller. If you step outside the board and screw up, it’s your ass.

  • stanger says:

    “All I can tell you is that I’m going to roll with Ireland/Philbin/Sherman on this decision.”

    So says M13, and most of us.

    We can hope like heck that right now the Phin’s are thinking about how to best do the ten-year marketing campaign once they do sign Tanny, but how can we do any more than hope?

    • Marinofan13 says:

      It’s all about hope… and trust… that our decision makers know what they are doing. We have no choice, as loyal fans, to both hope and trust.

      This is going to be interesting, for sure!!! CAN’T WAIT!!!
      :D

      • stanger says:

        M13 — I always hope, but trust is harder.

        Based on what I’ve seen……I trust in Philbin. But only so far. After this season I hope he has me locked down on that.

  • Mike E. says:

    Randy,

    I don’t think Ireland would really be under much scrutiny if he pulls the trigger on Tannehill. I think so many in the media already believe it’s going to happen, and even a lot of scouts expect him to be a top 10 pick.

  • Rhino says:

    We all remember how there was NO WAY Quinn dropped past us. Although they were wrong on Ginn, they were right on Quinn. What a weird way to make a living :)

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post/_/id/40977/will-wes-welker-become-an-issue

    its time to right the welker mistake, one of our biggest errors ever was let welker go, and to division rival! bring home the prodigal son! let welker retire in Miami where he belonged all along

  • Randy says:

    MikeE,

    I was really talking about GMs in general…not Ireland. That said, whomever he drafts in the 1st round needs to become a major contributing factor on this team…no matter who it is.

    Also, I’ve read/heard a lot of GMs and scouts see Tannehill as a late 1st, early 2nd round guy in terms of talent. If Ireland drafts him at #8, he’s not getting good value no matter how you look at it…it’s just the QB affect.*L*

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Welker never got in trouble here like marshall, and we wouldnt have had togive up two picks for marshall and put up with his bullshit

    it kills me every time i see Welker helping the hated pats instead of us SMH

  • ocalaHowie says:

    Yeah Stanger
    I’m good now, I wont even drive out to work on Monday morning during football season if I have the slightest hangover
    But back in the early 80s when we partied 7 nights a week I must have got pulled over a dozen times and drove away or they had my buddy drive from there.
    Except for that wreck. Then my Dad had to come get me.
    Check points; got through a couple of those in the early 90s in Alabama. First time I was OK cause I just got done from work and was on my way home from the beer store but I only had 1so far and the cop never even bothered.
    Second time was a bit more scarry; Me and the Ex where in the middle of breaking up, I got all Drunk and headed back for Florida.
    Got down to Gadsden just before dark and the whole main road was shut down with cops waving people off on both sides for a quarter mile. I shit my pants. The whole way through they just kept waving me bye. So I drove the next 12 hours half crocked all the way home…

    • stanger says:

      Howie — it is .08 strict now with hand analyzers pushed in your face.

      I got stopped in VA like five years back for “speeding”…..I was doing 70 in the 50 which was normal course. It was just a DUI check.

      I did the Cal test. Guy claimed I failed is miserably (most likely cause I am duck-footed and literally can’t do the toe to heel). I said…..just give me the brethalyzer. I was like 0.03. The cop’s face looked like there would be no Christmas that year.

        :D

        • Dbolt says:

          It’s worse up in my parts now with Chesapeak and their out of town Rough necks. Animals get off from their 2wk 200hr shifts and they go to the bars out here and go ape-shit. Doesn’t affect me as I tend to drink at my own local watring hole….better known as my house.

    • Dbolt says:

      Piggy,
      I like both players a lot, but gun to my head I’m taking Mcnutt. He’s tougher and just much more savvy and consistent. If we could land any combo of McNutt, Childs, Givens, Jenkins, Streeter, or Sanu I’d be a really happy camper.

  • Marinofan13 says:

    Have you ever been to the then or former Bo Orlando bar in Berwick (see my replies to you above)?

    • Dbolt says:

      No, pretty much stayed within walking distance to my apartment at Bloom. Good Ole Days, Hess’s, Russels, Harry’s. I typically didn’t hit the bar scene until after at least 5-6hrs of pong. Saved a lot of money that way ;)

    I think Marvin Jones is a strong Possibility

    • Dbolt says:

      I like Hilton, but worry about his injuries and build. Jones is a strong possibility as is Dale Moss as a late round pick. Freak Athlete and former hoops star.

  • Mike E. says:

    Randy,

    Tell you this bro. Sometimes, these picks are lauded by the talking heads, and we’re told that was great value getting this player at this particular pick in the draft. Then the player sucks, so you know what, it don’t mean squat. Perceived value is pointless, it’s what the player becomes that counts.

  • Gigi says:

    Piggy: He got fouled a couple of times down the stretch and they won’t call it. Bosh played very good w/Wade out. :)

    • The Flying Pig says:

      The only thing I think we need out of Bosh is consistend rebounding

      He really should be averaging 10 a game with or without Wade
      I get that he is the 3rd option on offense and will usually score inn the teens, but he be rebounding more and playing better defense

      I thought Boston exploited him in the last few minutes of that game

    • Gigi says:

      He scored 17 in the last 5:35….lmao.

    Nobody in the audience knew who the hell they were and they were roaming through 100k drunken teens. I had just sparked one and was like, Dudes, great show, wanna hit? If I recall correctly, they both took a hit. I’m not sure if we share DNA or not but it was pretty cool. I also met Shaq at Dairy Queen on the same day and gave him directions to the Orena. My girlfriend at the time was like, who are all these people? lol
