After Days Of Thought Im Officially All In On The Josh Rosen Experiment

https://twitter.com/AndrewBrandt/status/1121948175345094657

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.

Miami Dolphins Might Actually Have A Plan Here

https://twitter.com/nflnetwork/status/1107703609813131264

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

This Weeks CTGSSOLRDBLWHCCP Award Goes To…..

Move over Lombardi, Heisman, Nagurski, Thorpe or any other football human that has an award named after them. There is officially a new king in the football awards community.  I introduce to you the Clausen, Tebow, Gabbert, Sanchez, Schaub, Osweiler, Leaf, Russell, Dilfer, Boller, Leinart, Weinke, Harrington, Carr, Couch, Peterman award. Each week I will be handing out this award to the QB that displayed an extreme proficiency in being terrible.

This weeks nominees are:

Blake Bortles: 10/18 for 104 Yards. 

Jaguars played the Steelers so I got to watch every snap of this game. It’s insane how little they trust Blake to throw at all. Blake had 5 completions to Wide Receivers all game. Don’t think he even attempted a throw more than 15 yards. His sidearm has gotten so ridiculous he’s basically Jennie Finch now.

Blaine Gabbert: I don’t care what his stats were. The award is named after this man for a reason. Passes like these are an absolute thing of beauty for the brand. If Darius Leonard didn’t get drilled in the chest with the ball there were 2 more Colts right behind him. Hysterical.

Ryan Fitzpatrick: 13/21 for 167 yards and 3 Interceptions

I feel bad doing this to Fitz because I actually enjoy what he’s doing. He’s on a dog shit team and he’s just throwing the ball up not giving a single fuck. It’s just hard to leave you off the list when you throw 3 picks and get replaced by Jameis who almost brings the team back for a win.

This weeks winner for me is Blake Bortles. I feel horrible for Jaguars fans. I couldn’t imagine how frustrating it would be to have a good defense and running game be ruined by horrendous QB play. QB play so bad that you don’t even attempt to pass. That’s tough. 

Also be on the lookout for some Brand members to be getting back into the league shortly. With injuries starting to pile up we are entering the glory days of the NFL season.
