    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.

    I would consider giving that some time before making a proclamation like that. How about we wait a full season?

    No the point was Dan was probably the best Dolphin to ever put on that uniform and he never got a ring.
    Then Ajayi comes into the league, gets traded to a super bowl contender and gets a ring while Dan never did.
    It just seems so unfair. But it is what it is.

    You don't really know that! Did we know what went on behind the scenes in Davie? Knowing what we now do about Ajayi being "me first" do you really think he's thrilled and quietly accepting being a 2nd or 3rd shared option?

    His trashing the mansion in Hollywood, violating the lease agreement, shoving the landlord really speaks to his character. Granted although there were warning signs, I was surprised when it was revealed. This apparently is Jay's default personality. He may have been on his best behavior last season but it does get fatiguing going against the natural grain. Sooner or later he will revert back to who he is.

    its not the NBA, I don't think NFL coaches are meant to be baby sitters. Pederson is a great coach but I really
    don't believe he had soothing sessions with this baby and made a man out of him. Philadelphia had the 4th ranked
    defense and a great thing going, I don't think Ajayi was going to go there and act up

    Ajayi and to a lesser extent Landry are reasons you see a whole new mindset in the players being brought in. To be fair with the lack of talent when Gase and Co. took over made having to take chances on questionable character guys necessary. You only have so much money and so many draft choices to work with, so you take chances and hope they work out. I see much better drafting in the last 3 years or so, so you have to gamble less hopefully making team chemistry better.... Good riddance to both.

    That one TD rush that saw him break through a hole the size of the grand canyon untouched and to go with his one fumble really put that Eagles team over the edge.

    Eagles are managing him real well too, he's only been sued once this year.

    A great coach knows when to cut bait with "talent".

    That's a trash post by you. Absolute garbage.

    I live about an an hour east of philly and never heard a thing about Ajayi and his attitude while in philly. But another poster on Finheaven posted something about Ajayi after a game in which he didn’t get many carries. Ajayi was sulking during the after game media session and was questioned by the philly beat reporters about why he was sulking, after the team won? Now you have the news about an LA mansion. I guess some guys never learn or change.

    well hell, since we went off topic even though uk yelled not to. don't forget he was only with philly for a couple weeks before he was pouting in the locker room after a win because he doesn't get to play enough. im sure that will translate well over a full season

    Ajayi hasn’t changed. He never will. I’m sorry that Miami traded him, only because of the hope he gave me as a fan. But I realize, Gase is looking for a different kind if mentality in his players, so I'm now ok with the decision by the team to get rid of him. Locker room/ Team chemistry is just as important as talent. Ballage does the 2 things Ajayi didn't seem interested in, those being catching the football and blocking. Lets see how it eventually all shakes out?

    Gase managed him for most of one year. Eagles managed him for most of one year. Let's see how the rest of his career pans out there before proclaiming such stuff.

    That's high praise for a guy that was the third option RB on that team. Miami got a 4th rounder for a guy that was a problem, is not as good as Drake and will not be in the NFL in two years. They did well. Good for Philly, they would have won without him.

    When Ajayi is a free agent and Philly decides to move on people only then will people realize that getting a 4th for him when he's not a long term option was a good deal. I mean, I'm fairly sure that we're going to get more out of Quinn.

    No he didn't. That machine was running to the SB long before he got there.

    I was excited and impressed with him in the beginning too but after he blew me away with those 4 good games he gave us it was a whole lot of meh.....
