(the real) david in los angeles

so that means you agree that tanny was one of the better long ball passers in the game last year? lol
just curious..

OC Dolphin

Tannehill and long ball plays is not something that I automatically associate with. It's a gut thing that comes from observation about both his completions and incompletions. As well as the frequency.

(the real) david in los angeles

i understand, and it definitely was an issue early one, but one he fixed.

he still has issues; holding the ball too long, reading some coverages, etc but he has improved every year.

OC Dolphin

Tannehill is under the first year of a four year/$77M contract with the Dolphins. If I read it correctly, after this year's $20M, where it's anyone's guess as to his contribution, the Dolphins can drop him at the cost of an additional $39.5M, $4.6M against the cap. Or, keep him for the remaining 3 years/$60M that would be left on his contract.

Given that Suh's contract was also structured to go into the stratosphere around the ame time, the Dolphins may find it prudent to absorb the cost of letting Tannehill go by virtue of three things: 1. cap space flexibility vs. limitations by both Tannehill + Suh's contract, 2. Keeping Tannehill from a bang-for-the-buck POV, 3. The target rich market of incoming collegiate QBs into the league in the 2018 draft (12 or so).

My feeling is that If we see Tannehill go under the knife, we may have seen the last of him in aqua, white no orange.

Mr. Woodcock

Hang in there Dap, you sad sack son of a bitch!

He he.

Mr. Woodcock

"Improved every year...."

Sure sure whatever you say, Dap.

What's the over under on how many pick sixes Cut throws this year, OC?

And what are the odds that 007 starts the first game as the starting qb?

The least they should do is let him trot out there and take the first snap just as a show of respect for having come off the bench last year and won two games down the stretch and getting us in the playoffs. Something that ran has yet to do. Who cares if he was road grated in the Pittsburgh game at least he went back in even though he didn't have a clue where he was standing after he got destroyed on that play.

"Woody, tan really stepped it up last year."

Sure, sure Dap, whatever you say.

Mr. Woodcock

Wow, a new string OC. Most impressive.

Mr. Woodcock

Call me when you can I want ask you some questions about the area.

Mr. Woodcock

Not you Dap, your credibility took the same kind of hit like 007 took when you prognosticated the election La St year......

Big Baby

Oh no Sergio shooting his way out of it. Oh well at least he got his Major. OC are you on board with moving this tourney to May? Last Major will now be in July yuck.

Fzb3346

Blasfemy!!!!!

OC advocating getting rid of Tanny? Oye deja de fumar marijuana brother .. suelta eso .


Fzb3346

Did you guys noticed our starting MLB is the rookie from OH ?.. nice

Big Baby

He's getting rave reviews hopefully he balls out. It would make up for not drafting a lb in the first round which is what they should have done. Harris was a luxury pick.

Big Baby

Even Lamp, McMillan would have been better maybe in hindsight. Harris better be worth it.

(the real) david in los angeles

hey woody?

maybe you were watching the jaguars and thought they were the dolphins.

last year tannehiil completed a career-high 67.1 percent of his passes overall, and he improved his completion rate on passes thrown 21 to 30 yards in the air from 31.9 percent in 2015 to 45.5 percent in 2016.

in addition he took the fewest amount of sacks last year, lost the least amount of fumbles, and he posted the highest yards per pass attempt in his career.

repeat that as many times as you need to dummy.

Fzb3346

I see the insults are back , football season must be near

the shadow knows

NUKING NORTH KOREA BETWEEN ROUNDS OF GOLF....

is looking like a real possibility since the crazy north koreans don't appear to be backing away from launching missiles in the vicinity of guam and its 7,000 american servicemen and women. maybe dennis rodman can talk his good pal in north korea from starting armageddon.

OC Dolphin

These young 20-something strong golfers like Jon Rahm define new lengths. Just saw dude take out a 9-iron to hit a green 188 yards away.

Fzb3346

It looks like our rookie MLB is out for the yr, man what bad luck for the kid..we've been rack by injuries..Tannehill, McMillan, Larsen, Pouncey is still out .

Mr. Woodcock

Fuck!!!!

One Of those years.

Oh well might as well suck for the sc qb.

(the real) david in los angeles

what a nightmare.. that kid was having a pretty good camp by all reports.

i just can't believe the fucking luck this damn team has.

not like we were challenging the pats this year but damn, would have been nice to at least START the fucking season on all cylinders

OC Dolphin

Injuries are part of the game, but we must be playing the kind that defines. Geez! Think I'll write a book suggesting Hard Rock Stadium built on ancient, sacred burial grounds and no one will question it.

Fzb3346

They are going to have to get a couple of minimum pay LB's on waivers, they'll be available once teams start making cuts but of course they won't be any good .

Mr. Woodcock

Oh boy.

I blame it on the freaking Injuns and on Dave's bad karma.

Wassup Bongo Boy!!!!!

the shadow knows

LOVE WATCHING THE MAJORS!!!

the PGA might be my favorite as they include a lot of club pros in the field.

OC Dolphin

Yes, it's been great fun watching. No one is going to run away with this thing either. Day, Matsuyama and surprisingly, relatively unknown, Kevin Kisner.

After Rory failed to threaten, my money is on Matsuyama. He's dialed in.

Fzb3346

Who's that Masuyama guy OC is talking about? A sumo wrestler?

Fzb3346

It looks like our 5th round rookie DT is ahead of Phillips who sucks anyways, that was Tannenbaum's pick if I recall ... the guy sucks at picking players ... good to see Grier in charge of the draft ...

Mr. Woodcock

Dumb fucks has McMillan running down kicks. This is your starting middle linebacker and because he's a rookie they have him on special teams. Dumb fuck move. Just an incredibly thoughtless move to place a guy that you have so much riding on on special teams. He'll you 35 other guys that will never be starters on the roster right now who are cannon fodder to risk their life on special teams. If one of those guys blows a knee you just yell at him to roll off the field just like we yelled at OC in our beer league game when came into a game for his one and only at bat ever in our team history and hit a little topper in front of the late and took off for first like a bat out of Hell and blew out his hammy when he hit the bag and crumpled to the ground and stayed there for what seemed like an eternity until the ump yelled "buddy, get off the field, we don't have all day here!"

Exactly. McMillan shouldn't have been within light years from the field on special teams last night. Huge mistake.

OC Dolphin

Someone is going to have to enlighten Kevin Kisner about how repulsive his act plays on prime time. I'm sure chewin tabakie-un-spit-ng after every other shot is just fine mongst fellow rednecks, but if is totally unacceptable behavior when leading any kind of high camera telecast.

They've got coaches, caddies, and who knows what else. Dude needs an image counselor if he wishes to remain in this stage.

OC Dolphin

I'm pulling for Justin Thomas.

the shadow knows

OC Dolphin,

doesn't he read the warning labels on the tins of tobacco? maybe he ought read about the last, sad few says of tony gwynn, who acknowledged that chewing tobacco gave him the oral cancer that took his life.

the shadow knows

BRYCE HARPER INJURY...

don't think baseball players wear cleats anymore, just these lightweight studs that don't grab the bag. of course this wouldn't be an issue if he stepped on the front of the base instead of landing on top of it. he is a truly great player and hoping he gets back soon.

Big Baby

Benintendi winning the battle of the rookies this series shadow.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

no question about that.

OC Dolphin

How cool to watch golf's "Rat Pack" waiting to congratulate another one of their own on winning a Major.

Got to lave that!

Fzb3346

Jay Cutler is starting Thursday's game in case anyone is interested

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

aaron judge seems lost at the plate. striking out three times is bad, but against chris sale is understandable. judge has six weeks to find his stroke; we shall see ifs that happens

Big Baby

Won't matter we're headed for a Boston versus LA Dodgers World Series. Devers the 20 y/o is just another rookie Boston has waiting in the wings he's been amazing. That hit off Chapman last night was a sign of things to come. Stat line this year:

.328 (19 for 58) with nine runs, three doubles, four home runs, and 10 RBIs in 15 major league games.

Mr. Woodcock

Oc, you were rooting for that bucktoothed, slanty eyed, rolly Polly chink to win it all yesterday, right? I of course was screaming at the top of his backswing on every shot.

OC Dolphin

Woodcock,

Look at the 11:50, Sat-night post.

Mr. Woodcock

Yea, that was at 11:50 on Saturday. At 3 pm on Sunday you were yelling "banzai " and waiving one of those jap white meatball flags around in your living room rooting for that slanty eyed rat bastard.

Mr. Woodcock

And speaking of rooting for someone, has anyone seen the movie "Dunkirk?" I've seen it twice. I think it's a great great movie. Would see it again in a heartbeat.

OC Dolphin

Reading how the little fat despot N Korean lunatic has gone missing for two weeks. Also, their submarines have recently been tarped at port to conceal who-knows-what. And tomorrow marks an anniversary for liberation from Japan.

Boys, this doesn't bode well. Best practice getting underneath your desks and covering up!

Big Baby

Banzai lol

OC Dolphin

I don't get it. Why sign yet another WR in Trey Griffey? That position is overloaded.

OC Dolphin

The dweeb blinked:

SEOUL—North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened missile attack on Guam, Pyongyang’s state media reported on Tuesday, but warned that he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions.”

OC Dolphin

Yep, the little fat despot pussied out. Enough common sense to recognize that China has stated they will not back him were he to start sh**. Plus, realizing that anything fired towards Guam -- even if off by miles -- would be rendered a first strike, hence an erasure of 39° 1' N, 125° 45' E.

Big Baby

Trump approval rating = LOW.

Should have voted for Ted Cruz man of the people.

Mr. Woodcock

Kim? Are you talking about that fat fuck Chink who contented and flamed out like one of those Jap zeroes in one of those great black and white John Wayne WWII movies at last week's PGA championship, OC?

Mr. Woodcock

Ah, I don't know if you've been paying attention, OC, but it's camp and they need bodies and the injuries, especially at the wide receiver position keep growing. Poor Grif is just coming in to be a tackling dummy and as a favor to his old man. I'm sure that Tony Perez who is Cuban and lives in Miami put a good word in for the kid with Jew Boy McCoy.

Next!

Mr. Woodcock

Found out the house I was buying in San Clemente is across the street from 5 houses that went over the hill during a 1994 landslide. The city restored the bluff and the owners rebuilt but I can't get insurance on the house. Dodged a bullet. I think I'll be staying in Manhattan Beach for while.

Mr. Woodcock

Yoo hoo, is that you Dave?

And a one, and a two.....

"A wunnerful, a wunnerful, a wunnerful."

Hoo, hoo, hoo.....

Big Baby

Maybe I am late to the party but Tony Lippett is out for the year? Between him, Larsen and McMillan this camp has been a BIG big disappointment. Can't ever recall that many injuries to key players.

Big Baby

Tiger fall is complete. Everyone loved him and he was good for the sport once upon a time.

Until he was exposed as a complete scumbag. Worst sports fall from grace of all time.

Mr. Woodcock

Tony Lippet just tore his achilles tendon.

Mr. Woodcock

Yup. The fucking Injuns are getting their pound of flesh for the Jews building that stadium on sacred land.

"You thinkum, Kimosabe, that honorable ancestors were just gona sit around smoking peace pipe while the Hebs make 500 percent markup on football paraphernalia and that they weren't going to raise all the evil spirits to fuck them?"

"Playoffs!"

Big Baby

Lippett injury might be worse than losing McMillan or Larsen. Passing league.

Big Baby

depth cb's and rookies are going to need to step up BIG TIME.

Big Baby

Being a third cb means we will be "ok" as long as Howard and Maxwell stay healthy. Somehow I don't see that happening but we can dream.

Mr. Woodcock

I hear that Ronnie Lott is interested in a tryout.....

Big Baby

He would be old and gray and he ain't walking through that door..

Fzb3346

What the hell is going on out there at Dolphins camp, shit we keep losing starters..Now Lippett ?

Are you guys paying attention to what Giancarlo Stanton is doing? The guy is on a HR tear like few have ever been..he's homered in 6 straight games, 44 dongs for the year now..monster yr
