Phin tank

What happened with Daniel Jones was seen as triumphant.
It is what tanking should bring as a Miami Dolphin
Anything less would seem like an abrasion.
Put another band-aid on this football vacation.

Cause while the play is causing fans to flee.
Is the final outcome is destined fait acomppli.
And while the blowhards are saying they get better.
The players will be gone so it doesn’t really matter.

What the team says is the fans cannot identify
With the players losing culture who often codify.
Unlike a player like Cameron Wake.
In a room full mush when he was the only steak.

He saw many coaches go out the door.
Never to be a head man no more.
It wasn’t just the players that cause this malaise.
It’s also the leadership as bland as mayonnaise.

That is something that tanking will not solve.
The leadership void in perpetual absolve.
The draft picks don’t hide the leadership void.
And the tanking doesn’t mean an automatic Jones.

First they need the balls of the choice they make.
And take the flack for the player they take.
And stuck with the consequences if the player stinks.
The progress of a Tannehill leading will kink.

Not saying a turnaround is not unforeseen.
But this is not an Astro, it’s more like a Marlin.
Marketing the ballpark instead of the team.
While they lose 100 with no field of a dream.

Being competitive is often a fantasy.
For the organization who cares only about money.
As the players say that its a business.
As the Dolphin’s threaten to go winless.

And hope for better things in the future
By taking a full break and not applying a suture.

What Happened to Antonio Brown?

Antonio Brown timeline:
9/7 – Bye, Raiders
This much was patently clear.
After cold feet and a head smear.
The Raiders, even this randy bunch.
Knew Antonio was out to lunch.
And didn’t want a dime of their action.
So they kicked him out of their crazy faction.
9/7 – Hi, Patriots
The Patriots welcomed him with open arms.
Not knowing the future media alarms.
Coming down the pike was a story with black marker.
Krafting a byline like a Jupiter massage parlor.
9/10 – Bye, Personal Life (civil lawsuit alleging sexual assault)
9/15 – Hi, TD pass
He catches a pass, and all is well
Till a second story appears of more ill will
9/16 – Bye, Credibility (SI.com )
9/19 – Hi, strong arm texts
He seemed pretty smart on the online game.
But the texts in private trying to shift blame.
Was the last straw that stirred the drink.
And the Patriots did not want any of that stink.
9/20 – Bye, Patriots
Adios, the team says in a release.
We can’t continue to carry a dog with fleas
9/22- Bye, NFL
Is it goodbye to the game he beloves?
To sing Happy Birthday or proclaiming true loves?
To be sure, this is last espouse.
From AB or his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.

The Tide says bye

The Dolphins have shipped another good player
For draft picks who will become another later
They’ve lost a player named Fitzpatrick
Not the QB of pix-six stature

This was the one with Alabama pedigree.
Cause playing for a loser isn’t where he want to be.
Now the secondary will be more of a sieve
When the Fins tank, there’s more points to give.

For the teams that are actually trying
To make fans happy instead of the crying
For the fans who have suffered for decades on end
They can only tank because it’s the only way to win.

Getting that paper that has heavy stock
Of all the draft picks as if they were a lock.
To turn in players as good as Minkah
And not like the many who were found to be stinka

And those historians who wanted to suck for Luck
It turned out the Luck had run out and trucked
Some plans don’t work out like the signing of Suh.
Still having 8 million today that is due.
Even though for years his tenure was done
It was a contract where only one person won.

It’s time to party and bring out the streamers,
The Fins got more picks and continue to be dreamers.
And one day they will be on the board.
And prove that tanking will give a just reward,

Implore to not score

The Dolphins are putrid. It doesn’t matter whether they try to be competitively tanking or incompetently portraying a football team. But don’t tell the fans that the change of 59-10 to 43 – 0 week over week is an improvement? This is a team pretending to play a sport in the most illogical of strategies, tanking for a future? And to not score is improvement?

That’s what the radio broadcasters will tell you and did, in a predetermined script of a play call. The defense gave up less points. The special teams tackled better. But the only points the scored were two touchdowns for the other team. That’s not better.

No points means a certain impossibility of winning. They don’t have negative points except in fantasy football. And this Dolphin team is a fantasy in the most bizzaro of ways. The stands are as empty as for Marlin games, and they only have 8 appearances in a whole year, since there a chance in hell the playoffs are an option. The Patriots are already punching the dance card two games in.

Because they score. And they get better because the future is always now. The future is one game at a time with Tom Brady taking snaps. The Dolphins have stripped their players of the most obvious cliche of one game at a time. It’s one season at a time in Miami. One draft at a time. And many agent calls to get them out of Miami, at a time.

The exodus of commitment will corrode the feelings of the players, the tenacity of the agent calls, the threats of holding out for better situations. Miami has the lack of state tax and the nightlife, two built in advantages over other teams. But the most prolific free agent signing was a talented introvert whose friends with Warren Buffett. They don’t have game in or out of the arena.

And they can’t score which means they can’t compete and assuredly can’t win, with the players or public opinion, give or take shill broadcasters who think tanking is the best option. It’s an option Warren Buffett would sell on.

 

Standing Pat on Tanking

The Dolphins are tanking. The primary goal is to be a winner. It’s the right reason to strip it down but to win you must abstain. But the Stephen Ross long game is to be the absentee owner who cashes in when his investment is at peak value. He’s an investor and knows numbers. He is Jeffrey Loria with a pigskin and without votes.

He knew his investment would be worth more if the people paid to renovate the stadium. They did not. He thought bringing in Venus & Serena Williams and Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony as investors would bring more community and some infusion of social marketing. It did not. He thought adding better seating, better electronics, would add more excitement. No.

He thought bringing a HOF coach like Bill Parcells to run the team remotely would work. He thought his protegee Jeff Ireland would draft well. He thought Tony Sporano would coach well. He thought an OL coach who worked with Aaron Rodgers would win. He thought a quarterback whisperer would win. They did not.

He believed the advice on overpaying the best defensive player who likes Warren Buffet would be a leader. He took the advice of drafting a receiver who played 2 years at quarterback to start seven years would get him to the playoffs. And his coach in college would serve him best as Offensive Coordinator.

He thought leading RISE but organizing a Trump benefit would not invite questions. He interviewed Jim Harbaugh and let it leak for his present coach to hear from the media. He said his organization was the best at everything except playing football.

And now tanking is to be believed so the Fins have first dibs on a league not dominated by Bill Belechik and Tom Brady. So problem one is it’s football.

Most football players come from bad economic circumstances in the US. They have seen hard knocks in the US their entire life. It is all win every year for the most professional players . Baseball and Basketball have an infusion of players from South America, Mexico, Europe and the African continent. When they are learning, experiencing and enjoying America, they’re time table is less pressing about the game. It’s more about life. In football it’s all about the game. (Ben Simmons just decided to add a jump shot this offseason. For his team that tanked to win)..

Football players have more injuries caused by teammates making bad plays due to lack of talent, skill, intelligence, desire. Football players don’t have too much time to earn. They do not have time to prove their worth, especially when playing with inferior players. Winning helps earning power and tanking erodes their short span of time to make money. Ask Minkah Fitzpatrick.

The Dolphins are not the Houston Astros. Houston is so good at player procurement that the St. Louis Cardinals felt it WAS a good risk to take by spying on them. They were caught and punished. All nine players the Dolphins took in the 2013 draft are out of the league. They are not the Houston Astros.

They are the Dolphins and they are tanking. Dan Patrick says the fans should take the season off. The Heat is on.

Tanks, Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins own some real estate.
They’re 1000-1 in the Super Bowl space.

Not the kind of inventory you want to invest in.
Thats why your Miami Dolphins are-a-tankin.

They want to increase the value of their asset.
While making the fans grow more placid.

So they the best players become out of towners
While the rest of them play for one that flounders.

Getting buried by a shade over 50.
While scoring like they shop at the thrifty.

Like the baseball team owned by crooked art
Who got a new ballpark because of a collective brainfart.

This owner thinks he can trump those feats
But been there done that is a city with detes.

So he’s saving some money and hoping this plan
Will not fall flatter than Miami’s best flan.

But one thing we know after 20 or so years
We still see Marino through rear view mirrors.

AB is an XFL guy

Antonio Brown is an XFL guy.
He would take the league and make it fly.

Cause Antonio Brown is no longer a Raider.
Helmet games, cold feet, practice, and later.

He could keep his helmet and all of it’s glory
And no longer listen the Jon Gruden story.

That took place in Tampa with a ring theft of Dungy.
And parlayed to 100 million of Mark Davis’ money.

Or is it the investors in the city of Vegas?
The place made for dysfunction and stages.

‘Cause the Silver and Black have been losing for so long
The last time they won was with Gruden in Oaktown.

Save one season in the hands of Del Rio.
A causality of Davis’ callous libido.

So what he wanted was an old Gruden toy.
And how it plays out will be like a book from Tolstoy.

Now we have war with two divas and a Mayock.
And we will have peace when they get the flock out.

And be an anonymous loser just like the Dolphins.
Which makes the fans take more showers and rinses.

To scrub off the stench of year to year losing
And go to draft and let other teams abuse them.

And let Antonio play for the XFL.
‘Cause him and Vince would get along quite well.

With storylines and gimmicks and tables and ladders
The XFL is a circus, perfect for the AB sagas.

And the Steelers and Raiders can look from afar.
A sigh of relief from Big Ben and Carr.
