It is officially a new era in Miami, these aren’t the same old Dolphins throwing as much money as they can at random free agents. For once it looks like there could actually be a plan in place. When the trade first went through, Ill be honest i wasn’t sold on the idea at all. Ive been all in on the idea of going full tank and trying to get Tua next year, or even waiting for Trevor Lawrence out of Clemson.
After days to think about the trade and what we are getting, Ive really come around on the idea of Josh Rosen being a Miami Dolphin. The Dolphins didn’t trade a first round pick for him, they didn’t even trade their 48th overall pick for him. They traded that to the New Orleans Saints and ended up getting a second rounder for next year. In the end the Dolphins gave up the 62nd overall pick and a 5th rounder for next year. This was probably the best offer Arizona was going to get, when everyone knew they wanted rid of him. If your like me and were very skeptical of this pickup by Miami, let me sell you on what I’ve come around on. Arizona paid Rosen his bonus last year and ended up paying him 11 million in total. The Miami Dolphins have Josh Rosen under control for the next 3 years for 6 million. Thats 2 million a year for the next 3 years for a guy who went 10th overall last season.
Who knows how this thing turns out, I for one think FitzMagic will still be at the helm come opening Sunday for these Dolphins. At best we get a first rounder who could very well be a franchise quarterback, at worse we get a backup for three years at a very cost efficient price. Let me remind you that Matt Moore got 4 million per when he was the Dolphins backup quarterback. Im far from all in on Rosen, but this trade was worth the risk and Im very excited about this Dolphins team after the draft. Which is something i haven’t honestly been able to say since the Ryan Tannehill era started years ago. The quarterback room of Fitzmagic and Rosen looks a hell of a lot better than last years Tannehill and the Brocketship. All i know is things are changing in Miami and from what i can tell its definitely for the better. Hope y’all enjoyed the draft, FinsUp.

Well after years of mediocrity and being on the bubble the Miami Dolphins might finally be figuring this thing out. They were not active in free agency, didn’t spend any money at all, finally got rid of Ryan Tannehill and now they’ve brought Ryan Fitzpatrick the perfect bridge quarterback in my opinion.
Lets be honest here, Ryan Tannehill was never going to be the guy. He was the Dolphins starting quarterback for seven years and got us to the playoffs once. I would even say Matt Moore was more responsible for getting them their that season also. It was time to tear this thing down, get rid of all the loose fat and start fresh in Miami. Finally that is what they’ve done, in the NFL you cant constantly be in the middle and magically find a way to get better. The Dolphins had to start fresh, new coach and now a new quarterback who will be exciting to watch this season.
This is a perfect signing for this Dolphins team, Fitzpatrick has shown he can still sling it and the Dolphins have a good selection of wide receivers he can do that to. Im looking for DeVante Parker to have a big year after not really being given a shot with Gase running the show. They also have Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant who were both great last year until getting injured. If you want a guy to throw the long ball to Kenny Stills is always ready to go deep also. For the first time in a while as a Dolphins fan I can honestly say I’m excited. Whatever happens this year wins or losses aren’t that important to me, Im just excited to see something new and see this team finally take a different path. I love the tank for Tua idea but if Dwayne Haskins is still available at thirteen, I could definitely see the Dolphins taking a chance on him and who better to learn from than FitzMagic. There is hope that the Miami Dolphins could finally be getting this thing right. Im excited to see what happens this season and you should be too. Hope y’all are having a week and lets get over the hump. Cheers
On today’s show, Triple H officially joins the show while Pat records from his hotel room in Orlando as the guys battle a couple of technical issues to get the everything up and running.

They also do a deep dive into all the chaos of NFL free agency so far including AB to Raiders and what Jon Gruden’s thoughts on the entire matter are, Lev Bell landing in New York and whether or not that makes the Jets a contender at all, and OBJ being shipped from the Giants to Cleveland and how the Browns might finally be ready to take over the AFC North with all the acquisitions that they’ve made so far this offseason. To close out the show, lead commentator for Smackdown Live and all around electric human being, Tom Phillips, joins the show live from the WWE performance center. They discuss everything pertaining to the NFL draft as Tom is an NFL nut who enjoys the draft process. He gives out a couple of his picks for where he thinks certain players will wind up, and gives his thoughts on AQ Shipley, as well as the cult of Penn State football. Also included are some special appearances by Triple H and Michael Cole (1:22:59-1:56:38). It’s a great one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.
There could finally be some hope for the Miami Dolphins and their fanbase, in years passed they would definitely be all in on high paid free agents. Miami would always overpay for star players and end up eating massive contracts and eventually cutting or trading these players near the end of their contract. The Dolphins have played with mediocrity for years and years now and it hasn’t gotten the franchise anywhere.
For the Miami Dolphins to finally turn this mess around they have to try something different and it looks like they finally are. They didn’t overpay for any free agents yesterday and they also didn’t overpay for any of their own. We saw JaWuan James get 4 years 52 million yesterday from the Denver Broncos, making him the highest paid right tackle in the NFL. If the Dolphins are going to go into tank mode these are the exact contracts they need to stay away from, whether they want to keep one of their own or not.
The biggest domino to fall for this Dolphins team is who will be quarterback, as we all know by now it will more than likely be a veteran QB on a one year deal. Who will be at the helm this year is far less important than whether they take a QB in the draft, or if they wait till next year to see if they get a better draft pick and get a guy like Tua. This team has sat in the middle of the pack for way too long and this season might be absolutely horrible but it will all be worth it if they can finally get their franchise quarterback we’ve been waiting for since Dan Marino. Yes its been that long since we’ve had a franchise QB. So lets all take this year for what it is and hope that these Dolphins can finally get this thing right and turn it around. Lets keep this week rolling y’all cheers.
