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.
On today’s show, Pat and the guys record the show live from his backyard in what feels like an Indiana summer night. They discuss the NFL schedule release and highlight a couple of different games that they are looking forward to, including Packers vs. Bears to open the season on Thursday night, Steelers vs. Patriots on the first Sunday night, and a couple of the Thursday night and Monday night games that look to be good matchups. They squeeze in a little hockey talk as Pat has to respond to the city of Pittsburgh after the Pens got swept by the Islanders. They also discuss Russell Wilson’s new contract, and whether or not any of his teammates in the locker room actually like him. They also discuss movie biopics, and how Pat see’s the movie about his life unfolding. Also joining the show is 11 year NFL veteran, Pro Bowler, and the man who started the entire Deflategate situation by intercepting a Tom Brady pass, D’Qwell Jackson. He and Pat talk about their relationship as teammates, his video for The Uninterrupted about how all he wants is his playoff interception from the Deflategate game to be returned to him, and what he’s been doing to enjoy his retirement thus far. (4:15-18:44) To close out the show, Zito makes a triumphant return trying to read and ad, and the guys each give their favorite summer banger to give you something to chew on heading into the weekend. It’s a fun show, come and laugh with us. Cheers.
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
Well here we go, Kyler Murray made the decision, which was pretty much inevitable. He wants to be an NFL quarterback, rather than an Oakland Athletic. Only time will tell if this is the right decision, but for now lets talk about who’s taking a chance on the Heisman trophy winner.
As a Dolphins fan I’m very hopeful that they take the shot and trade up to get him. I don’t see too many teams in front of us who need a quarterback or will take a shot on Murray. The one team that i was really worried about was the New York Giants but reports are saying their concerned about his size.
If the Cardinals don’t pull the trigger and take him at one then if your the Dolphins you have to, I mean please lets go take a chance. Why not?? You’ve now fired your coach, brought in a new one. Tannehill is good as gone, so why not start fresh with Kyler Murray. Unless your all in on the tank for Tua, Kyler Murray has to be an option this year to start this rebuild. There’s no guarantee you will even get close to Tua next year, Dolphins are very good at being mediocre and getting middle round draft picks.
Im all in on this idea, if we are truly rebuilding with a new coach then why not a brand new young quarterback to go along with him. As Dolphins fans we’ve waited long enough, we’ve watched mediocrity since Marino left. The time is now to get our franchise quarterback and Kyler Murray is that guy. If your worried about his size look at Baker Mayfield, Russel Wilson and Drew Brees. All three of those guys are gamers and i strongly believe Kyler Murray is to. The balls in your court Dolphins time to make a move and time to make it now.
