    Start at about the 14:50 mark. The Dolphins portion goes on about 5 minutes.

    the national media and fans(somewhat understandably), never thought/knew about Ajayi's rookie year comeuppance. they
    just saw the 200 yard games and thought "wow you traded him for nothing!". I was happy Gase went alpha dog on him

    Philadelphia & Jay Ajayi are also happy with their Super Bowl rings.

    Turns out, Philadelphia was able to manage Jay Ajayi, and Miami wasn't.

    A good coach can manage problematic personalities, and lead them to win the Super Bowl

    That was good, thanks. Not surprised to hear this about Ajayi. He had character question marks at Boise State.

    Keep discussion specifically on what happened in Miami and this thread can probably remain in the fins forum (will need to check, most get moved) but discussion of the rights and wrongs of the trade, his play in Philly etc needs to go in the NFL forum.


    personally I thought the discussion about cutting back the playbook, Tannehill off the field etc was more interesting than Ajayi being a diva

    They were winning a Super Bowl with or without Jay. He was just along for the ride.

    Ajayi had nothing to do with the Eagles winning the Super Bowl.

    I honestly don't even remember anything about his rookie year. I remembered being excited we drafting him, then him having some kind of injury (according to wiki ribs) but I didn't think it was supposed to be bad, then out half the season.. but most everything in that video we have already heard or read, I was hoping it was some juicy insider stuff to make me really view an ex player as a complete POS :sneaky

    But yet he has a ring and Dan Marino does not have one.

    Not entirely true. Peter Schrager told everyone on Sirius XM Radio about Ajayi's unbelievable temper tantrum during the Jets game comeback in 2017. That's a national guy.

    But I get your point, the team actually did a great job keeping things mostly under wraps.

    What's even the point of this statement? You think we'd have one if we kept AJ?

    Which pretty much proves the whole method of only looking at championships to evaluate relative success is a faulty method in a team sport environment.

    He helped Philly more than we want to give him credit for. The two headed attack of him and Blount wore down defenses and was effective.
