    If any of you down in South Florida happen to see Turdenbam crossing the street, do us all a favor and speed up. Thanks.

    Really not in the mood for laughing but this one cracked me up. :D

    I’d honestly like to hear the “logic” behind letting him walk. I’m baffled at this point.

    The scuttlebutt is that this is 100% Gase's doing and that Tannenbaum is just standing aside and giving him the rope.

    Tbaum is a survivor.

    Oh, yeah. He went 18 for 22 for them in 2015 and 35 for 41 in 2016, and you know he has a strong kickoff leg, too. But he was always injured here, and he was lost for the year early in 2017

    We’re not planning on scoring any points so we won’t need a kicker...

    $24mil could have landed us Fat Albert and the entire Junk Yard Band. Eff me - Tannenbaum and Gase are like dumb and dumber. Only dumberer.

    For real? Is anyone checking to see if Gase is having some sort of mental breakdown?

    Albert Wilson is not a "shrimp receiver." He's 5'9" 203. (Same height and more than ten pounds heavier than Mark Duper).

    Jakeem Grant is 5'6" 165.

    That's a shrimp receiver.

    No he's good. I spoke to him the other day and he was really excited to see his offense without Landry catches 11 passes for 60 yards.

    Did you ask him if he was also good w losing most TFL and QB hits from the DT position? Or 4 successful onsides kicks? What about those 50+ yarders? Won’t miss going 5-5 on those either.

    I see your point but Duper played 1,000 years ago at this point when normal WR size was 5’9.

    I’m sure we’ll pay him more than what Parkey wanted.

    Why not bring back Caleb Sturgis? Didn’t he lose his job to Allen of the Eagles? Anyone?

    If this is even remotely true, then Gase is dumber than we all suspected.

    No, he didn't. He had a season-ending injury. See my post above.

    Remember when kicker used to be a position of stability for us over the years....

    Yepremian to von Schamann to Reveiz to Stoyanovich to Mare all before Carpenter (6 kickers covering about 38 seasons) and then since 2012 we have just been blowing through kickers almost yearly. Of course we had some stop gaps along they way but it would be nice to get a good one and settle in there for a spell.

    Ya, he said he wanted to keep Suh but it was cost prohibitive. That one still bothers him.

    Parkey is a loss for sure but much like the Patriots, don't pay RB's and Kicker's and you'll stay ahead of the curve. Believe it or not, Adam Vinatieri hasn't always been a Colt.

    What I meant is he lost his job in Philly because of his hip injury. Sorry if I didn’t word it to your liking. Why not bring him back to Miami?

    This is not about money folks with a move like this and signing a shrimp receiver when we already have one on the squad. This is about torpedoes and how many Tbum can fire to sink the Dolphins franchise.

    Going forward we really should insist our front office decision-makers take Wonderlich Tests with the hiring threshhold being about 30 - not the suspected 15 I'm charitably attributing to Bozo and Bozette

    Bro, I gotta know where youre hearing that from. Is that in regards to the entire offseason? Or just the Parkey deal?

    Clayton and Duper were both referred to as smurf recievers back in their day so I stand by my quote. This new guy is a shrimp.

    Depends on what Parkey was asking for and what the Bears offered. Dolphins are not in a position to over spend on a kicker. Only contending teams should do that. To me it's like seeing a 70 or 80 win baseball team breaking the bank on a great closing pitcher. What's the point.

    I would sign Sebastian Janikowski. Florida State Guy. I think he’s a good 8 years younger than Vinatieri. Lots of tread left on the tires.
