From what I saw on twitter, the deal is worth over 12 years? That would be nice to hold onto a name for awhile since the stadium has gone through 7 since it’s inception. Nice and brand new with new shades and some new looks to the stadium. Gets us all ready for the start of the season to happen already even though there were looming questions of if it would be ready in time. It’s 2016 though and a Walmart can be built and ready for shoppers in the blink of an eye these days around here so I’m confident they can get shit done by first kick off of the regular season.

It would be interesting though if Hard Rock bought the stadium rights to a team like the Redskins though. Then you can almost spin the fact that Redskins isn’t a derogatory name since Indians essentially own the land on which they play. This also reminds me that they should add a little casino in Hard Rock stadium. Play some slots while Tannehill throws a pick.

Dolphins Pick Up Arian Foster For 1 year 1.5 Million

arian-foster-vegan-diet-600x400

Looks like we swapped Miller for Foster pretty much. Sucks because we would like to see Lamar with this new Adam Gase offense thats suppose to be what’s hot in the streets. But overall not a bad deal though. Sure the guy might be wheeled in by wheel chair but for the sake of hope, lets say he’s healthy. Since Lamar Miller left, we all pretty much knew that  Jay Ajayi would be starting RB. This is just a nice small pick up for 1.5 mill. Worst case scenario, he doesn’t even make the cut Week 1 and we only lose $400K (i didn’t check that source). Now if Foster has his body healthy, who knows, we get an extra pair of legs in the back field and some veteran experience on a young offense and some depth in case of injuries. Its low risk high reward. Namaste Bitches.

Dolphins Hire Clyde Christensen As New Offensive Coordinator

ESPN- The Miami Dolphins will hire Clyde Christensen to be their offensive coordinator, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Christensen, who spent 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, will work under rookie head coach Adam Gase in Miami. But Christensen is not expected to call plays for the Dolphins. Gase said last week that he plans to handle play-calling duties after doing so the past three seasons as offensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos. "I really enjoy that aspect of putting the game plan together with the offensive staff," Gase said. "So going into this season, that's how we are going to start, with me calling them." Christensen comes to Miami with lofty credentials. He was the Colts' quarterbacks coach the past four seasons and worked with Andrew Luck. He also served three seasons as offensive coordinator with future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and seven seasons as a wide receiver coach for Indianapolis. The Dolphins (6-10) were ranked 26th in total offense last season and 27th in scoring, averaging 19.4 points per game. Fourth-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill had another inconsistent season. It will be important for Christensen and Gase to make sure Tannehill and the offense trend upward next season.

Yo if you had to take a guess at his age you’d say maybe mid 40’s right? maybe late 40’s in some pictures but he’s 59! Guy turns 60 in like two weeks and looks like he should be visiting his dad in a retirement home, not the one himself to be in the retirement home. The guy just looks like a regular midlife dad. Tom Coughlin is 69, only 9  years older, and looked like he was about to become a mummy that haunts Metlife Stadium for all eternity. He looks like the same age and kinda looks like a rounder face version of Coach Taylor from Friday Night Lights and he’s only 50. Unbelievable.

As for the actual signing. It should be a pretty good one. As said before, the Dolphins want to bring Tannehill to the next level since they’re handing over garbage bags full of money to him with so far a bad season to show for it. Well the guy who developed Andrew Luck is a pretty decent start even though half of this past season he’s had back ups to work with. Aside from that the guys been an assistant HC, WR coach, OC coach, and TE coach. Guy seems pretty well seasoned from Colts. Well hopefully he see’s some potential in Tannehill and can actually turn him into an Alex Smith type QB instead of this mediocre QB/Once WR player that he is now. If all goes accordingly, next year might finally be the year where Tannehill breaks out **fingers crossed**.

Seriously though, can you believe he’s almost 60?

Quick Blog On Adam Gase

CYStg62UsAEIQXK

Alright, now that things have died down and people are in playoff mode waiting for Superbowl 50 to happen, I’ve thought about it and i think Dolphin fans should be a little bit more excited about Adam Gase than was initially said. I could be totally wrong because with this organization being run by Stephen Ross, things could just go terribly wrong, but the facts are now that moving forward, Adam Gase is our head coach for the next 5 years. Now the first reaction with no one really knowing anything about Gase was that this was Philbin 2.0 getting some OC with no Head coaching experience and him bringing in his staff and the next thing you know we end up .500 for 3 years. But by all accounts everyone around the league likes Gase and unlike Philbin who was stuck with 1 organization for for a decade, Gase has been around the league with a few teams and leaving behind a positive reputation every time.

Really that is the one big selling point to Gase, that he’s been around the league and under many respected coaches. Starting off with none other than Nick Saban when he was at LSU, from there to Mariucci, Mike Martz, McDaniels for awhile as a WR coach, then QB coach in under John Fox for Peyton Manning, to last year where he was the OC of the Bears working well with Cutler who might’ve had his best season as a bear with Gase working closely with him and ultimately that was a huge factor in hiring Gase.

Once the Dolphins committed millions upon millions on Tannehill, everyone expected him to break out into the franchise QB he’s shown some flashes of. Obviously things never worked out with Philbin, and after this little experiment with Dan Campbell, who is most likely gone once Gase brings in his team, it was time we focused a major part of the coaching regime on making Tannehill worth his money. If he’s able to make one of the most disliked QBs in the league into a somewhat conversation of a decent quarter back, then it seems like what we need here in Miami with Tanney making even more money coming off of a dismal season. Obviously there are holes in every part of the game that need fixing on defense and offense, but for now, we’re working on a problem that is the face of the team and organization, and for that, i like the move to bring in Gase and either way, I’m kinda looking forward to see how this unfolds, either an improved season or a complete disaster for the next few years.

P.s- I hate the #StrongerTogether hashtag. What ever, onto 51.

Annnddd Jonas Gray Gets Cut

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 11.41.58 AM

Jonas Gray is gonna become a cautionary tale told to students in elementary school. Don’t miss or be late to class or else you can go from star running back on a dominant Superbowl winning team to being never heard from again unless its to bring up the fact that you were cut then go back to the team you got picked up undrafted from only to get cut again.

All of that aside though, Patriots could honestly pick him up to replace an injured Dion Lewis and he might get a second life and run for a hundred yards down our throats when we play them at the end of the season. That would suck.

The Dolphins Might Not Win Another Game This Season

Well that was a brutal loss on Sunday. Tannehill Tannehilled again with another botched snap leading to a safety which is becoming a common occurrence with Tannehill. To me its like when you notice one car that you dont see often and then every asshole on the road has one. Well once you see a Tannehill botched snap you should put an over total bet on how many more he’s got for the rest of the season. Not a good way to start an offense. All of this didnt help when they couldn’t push in a TD right before halftime at 1st and Goal from the 1 yard line, from there it was over. A little hopeful lights with Miller and Ajayi. A Nice trick play from Juice throwing to Tannehill. But that was all shattered when Tannehill Fumbled a ball into a Bills hand at the Dolphins 40. Another frustrating week. All hope lost and sitting at the bottom of the division.

Does it get better? meh, not hopeful. Eagles Im pretty sure we’ll lose to. Cowboys Romo should be back and they employ a woman beater so that one probably wont look good. Jets, well I’ll pray every night that we get Geno Smith at QB, but i also haven’t won the lottery yet either so that’s doubtful. Ravens is a coin flip for me. Obviously they stink but who stinks worse? A QB who’s won a Superbowl or a Wide receiver moonlighting as a QB who lets snaps fly by his face. Exactly. Now comes the NY Giants. This is one game im expecting the Dolphins to win. Why? Simple.maxresdefault

I believe the common parlance is “Its Lit.” And soon after that we they gotta fly all the way to San Diego to take on Mike Brady and the Chargers so im just gonna mark that in the loss column. After that its Andrew Luck who’s fighting form becoming a laughing stock and then we go home to RIP with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots as the Pallbearer.

I Got Everything Wrong About This Dolphins/Patriots Game

CSkdltCWcAAGlObCSiPP9jXIAAFmfX

Welp, the clock ticked down to 0 and the carriage has officially turned back into a pumpkin. People around here were riding super high after the past two games where the Fins put a whopping on Texas and Tennessee, But its just that. Texas and Tennessee. take who ever wins the CFB National Championship against them and they’d probably win. Now i for one, never thought it was gonna be a W. But I somehow talked myself into make some bold bold predictions that none of them panned out.

First one being that Dolphins would cover in the first half whatever the line may be. I figure we’d come out strong, unwavered confidence could carry our defense and at least score on an early drive.  Well thanks to the Patriots scoring on their first drive along with Tannehill’s uncanny ability to really suck at footballs sometimes, we get a 19-0 Patriots first half (Probably gonna be their record at the end of the season). So unless anyone somehow got the first half spread at +20, the Dolphins stunk.lolphins.0

So after i talked myself into believing they’d cover 1st half, its only a skip or two away from thinking they wont get blown out. All week I’ve been listening to podcast and radio and most of it was from New England guys. Its easy to see why they’re hate able, but i listen especially this one guy i subscribe to, and you should as well just if you like sports in general is The Danny Picard Show. Now he goes on to say that Patriots were gonna blow out Miami. Now he goes on to say this after he recapped last week game where it was 44-26 fins and pretty much disregards that. Now anyone who watched knows that it was like 38-0 at half time and we were pretty much playing garbage time by the 2nd half so In my head i was saying Danny Picard didn’t see the game, yea 44-26 is close but it was all in the first half and we let the foot off the gas. Basically all that lead me to think its gonna be egg on their face when its not a blow out, but low and behold. It was pretty much a blow out at a 29 point difference. CSiPP9jXIAAFmfX

But all of the above didn’t stop my brain. Its a big divisional game. They’re gonna play tougher, If i were New England i wouldn’t worry about winning, id be worried their Offensive weapons are gonna get injured on this now 7-0 run against this hungry vicious Dolphins team. Lets see how this worked out:

Turns out we were using one of those Looney Tunes shotguns that end up shooting yourself in the face all night.

Well we were riding really high after the last two W’s but finally checked back into reality. If anything i really hope this doesn’t hurt Dan Campbell’s chance at becoming the permanent head coach and i don’t think it will. I mean He definitely has some blame here tonight considering he said last week that preparation for this game was going to be all mental. It was gonna be game planning with the brain as opposed to just tackle drills.  Well be the time Tannehill watched that snap soar right by him i thought the whole mental game was cooked. Just absolutely rattled and ended up throwing like 2 picks because of it. But again, i like Campbell as a coach obviously more so than Philbin. And something about him when you hear him talk, he kind of sheds the big tough guy persona and falls into this emotional being. Kinda weird. He’s one of those giant softees i think deep down that just loves football and being around the guys. Well next up is Buffalo, hopefully Campbell gets it going again and we can atleast take them out in the division.
