    Why on Earth would you just make that story up?

    Hell, it's easy enough to turn the story into a team building exercise! "*WE* were playing against the best ever, and every man had to do his job, no matter how small the role was. Every role is important!"

    Channing does embellish these stories some so keep that in mind.

    I remember he was telling a story about How him and Zach were getting tormented against the Ricky and Ronnie wildcat in practice. I texted him and said “bruh Zach wasn’t even there for the wildcat that was just you” . . .he replied back “my bad lol”.

    Because a part of a coaches job is to inspire and fire up his team. I'm sure he wasn't the first coach or military leader to lie to his troops. I know Jim Valvano had a few good stories about things he had said to his team to fire them up and some he admitted he had made up on the spot. I mean what inspires more a story about a guy who always stays ready and then is called in to battle Michael Jordan or a guy that is always ready and never gets in the game?

    It's stuff like this that made it a VERY easy decision to fire Cam Cameron.

    Honestly, of all the stories I heard of Cam Cameron, this is one of the least worst. Don't get me wrong though, it is still pretty funny.

    Those were dark times, he had possibly one of the worst inaugural years as a coach. His initial arrogance with the Ted Ginn pick, drafting John Beck, the fail forward fast nonsense, cutting Culpepper and getting spanked by him in the regular season, trading for Trent Green when he was damaged goods and then lasting 4 games, putting Ronnie Brown on kick return in a preseason game, and i'm sure there's plenty more i'm forgetting.

    I text QAM on occasion as I am on the road during their show and stuck in traffic. They answer quite often to be honest. Crowder, Big O, Donno . . . they all have answered texts, sometimes rather detailed. I put a signature in my texts and they save the number for people as well. Its not very often but I called out Channing on that one . . . didnt expect a response back but got one lol. This had to be a year or two ago tho.

    Why don't you use some of that texting power and tell Landry he needs to focus on Clevland football.

    Trashing your previous team and the QB that definitely helped you get a nice contract?

    Was it not Channing Crowder when a freshman at Florida once asked if people living in England spoke English? Then followed that up with : are there any black people in England?

    He was asked a question and he honestly answered. Personally I wish he would just say “no comment” and let his play do the talking but like I said before the team painted him in a bad light during contract negotiations and he definitely took exception to it. Typical Jarvis.

    And he didn’t trash Ryan, he was asked about their relationship and he said they didn’t have a good one. Hell he also stated the Fins could of went to the Super Bowl with him in 2016 because he was playing so well . . . .but I am sure you have never mentioned that in your rants.

    And if we are being fair, the 9 TD season without Tannehill probably did more for his value than the 3 seasons with him.

    Weirdly enough, I actually looked up the list of all NFL teams that have gone 1-15 since the switch to a 16 game season, and 4 out of the 10 head coaches involved in those seasons returned the next year.

    Huizenga was actively looking to sell the team at that time, though, so that also might have factored into it.

    It was Channing Crowder, but I think he made those comments when he was with the Dolphins and we had a game in London? It was hilarious because yes, he was absolutely clearly joking, but he managed to pull it off in such a deadpan fashion that idiot reporters couldn't figure it out.

    I like Crowder. A lot of fans didn't like him because he wasn't a great or impact player, but he was a competent player who did his job, and he's provided me with some laughs over the years.

    Well he’s going to have an opportunity to show us all how he carries a team. According to him he’s in a much better situation from the Qb stand-point.

    9TD W/o did more for him than 3 season with...

    Yikes!

    Sure kdawg...sure

    It’s funny, he literally said nothing about carrying a team but that is the new expectation his detractors have for him to make a point.

    He likes his QB situation better . . . I think a 2016 8 game stretch Ryan Tannehill is a better QB than what they have currently . . . . But Tyrod is no slouch and Baker was #1 overall. Ryan hasn’t played in a while. . . . It’s not some blasphemous statement.

    Just being honest. Touchdowns = $$$. The season that enabled Jarvis to go from the 12 million range to the 15 million range was 2017 when he nabbed 9 touchdowns, which was without Ryan Tannehill. It was the main knock on him and he produced.

    In his first 45 games with Ryan Tannehill he scored 11 touchdowns
    In his last 19 games without Ryan Tannehill he scored 11 touchdowns

    Don’t think that stat isn’t used in contract negotiations, with Miami and with other teams.

    Landry is dead to me! But you can root for him all you want up there in Cleveland.

    BTW, Good Luck with that Tyrod and Baker situation which has the ingredients of being explosive. Especially, when you add in what seems like Landry is pulling and aligning himself with Tyrod.

    What happens when they eventually put in the rookie? I'm sure Landry, the team first guy, isn't going to have a problem with it. Whatever is best for the TEAM.

    I live all the way north in jersey, but i try and listen to Hochman and Crowder as much as i can. thank satan for podcasts and internet feeds. I have to say Crowder will never be mistaken for the greatest Dolphin of all time but he sure as hell one of my favorite Dolphin of all time his stories are comedy gold. i want his jersey just as a gag because it would be so random

    Simple small little numbers like that are enough to make some look silly in their defense of the golden boy while feeling the need to trash anyone who gets in their way.

    OTOH, with more long ball accuracy in 2016, it was Kenny Stills who had 9TD passes while in 2017, he had 6. There's a correlation between passers that corroborates Landry going up and long ball Stills going down in the most recent Tannehill-less year.

    In business, nothing is as confirming as the employer who knows you best giving you raises and promotions. While not exactly apples to apples, the coaches who saw Taylor day in and day out and even tried to replace him with Peterman, at the end of the day, decided to trade him and put their playoff caliber team in either the hands of a basically unproven backup and/or a draft choice questionable completion records against substandard Div 1 competition and even worse before that at JUCO. What does that say about Taylor?

    Way to lose the locker room instantly, now that season makes even more sense. What kind of loser just makes up a story like that anyway???

    On another note, I love Crowder on the radio...some of his Parcells stories are amazing.

    Eh the Bills are also the team who replaced Doug Flutie who helped lead them to the playoffs with Rob Johnson so it's not like they are a franchise who has made very good decisions these last 2 decades. They also got rid of a still serviceable Drew Bledsoe for JP Losman.

    That 's true.. but in terms of being apples to apples, it's the equivalent of declaring because some random GM and Modell in Cleveland got rid of Belichick, Dorsey is another ill-conceived hire.

    Again, in terms of professional credentials, nothing speaks to your value as much as that the people who know your professional skills and limitations best promoted you in place.. or speaks to your perceived lack of value when a company goes outside to hire someone above you or even worse, unloads you for unproven and possibly questionable replacements
