Happy Thanksgiving from Dolphins in Depth

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Today is about big parades. And eating. And certainly about watching football. There are three games on the schedule, including an AFC East meeting between the Patriots and the Jets.

But there's more to this national holiday than the national sport. This is, as you should know, a time to give God thanks for the many blessings he's bestowed on us the past year.

I thank Him for my wife and family.

I thank Him for health and wholeness.

I thank Him for a life full of goodness.

I thank Him for tests -- because they will lead to testimonies.

My family will celebrate with a meal today. I'm frying a turkey. That's right, frying. Locks in the juices. Highly recommend it if you haven't tried it.

But we all must be aware not everyone is enjoying the kind of prosperous personal situation most of us are. Some are less fortunate. Some are not of good health or perhaps aren't working or maybe have been detoured by a string of bad luck.

On Wednesday afternoon the Dolphins did their share to make sure some of those less fortunate would still be able to enjoy this day and be thankful for a good day, at least. The club in conjunction with Publix gave away 750 turkey meals that included all the fixins'.

I shot some videos of the folks picking up those meals.

Here they are:

And here's part deux:

Fin 1984 Im glad he did because the only difference maker at QB in this years preseason free-agency period was P Manning and yes he passed on us,do you blame him he didnt wanna get his hands dirty working for the gas station manager.

Aloco I can picture Henne and Marshall in Gas station attire like gomer pyle wore.

Kappe played Nevada-Reno which is not even Div I so you can't compare his stats to Tebow or Henne who both had extraordinary college careers against ranked teams every single week on Nat'l TV.
When was Nevada-Reno ever on TV?

My bad I meant GUUBER PYLE,Gomer only worked there before he went into the marines

And another thing:
Anybody can win games at QB for the 49ers.
Neither Smith nor Kappe would do any better here than Tanne with the crap talent on this team.
And we have 20 pending FAs and only 10 draft picks so it's not like we are getting more talented.

I think it is spelled 'Goober' not 'Guuber'.

You are correct CDVille I just googled it I got a pic if anyone remembers the hat he wore at the gas station,I can picture Henne wearing it and Marshall also but he would wear gloves(I hope their not white)

Would guys still be talking about Kaepernick if he'd fallen on his face the other night. SERIOUSLY? Where were these comments over the last year and a half? All of a sudden he's the savious and 'we blew it'. Come on!

For the record, I liked Dalton and Kaepernick before they came out. These are the guys I was hoping we would draft. But that was THEN, this is NOW. Happy to have Tannehill on board.

DO YOU GUYS THINK HENNE WILL CEMENT HIS STARTING JOB WITH JAX NEXT YEAR UNDER THIS COACH WHO'S NOT LIKE OUR EX PIZZA MAN MICROMANAGEMENT STYLE ?

THE 49S COACH HAVE SAID,HE WILL USE HIS 2 QB PLAYERS ,IN EVERY GAME ,EVEN PLAYING BOTH TO WIN.............

THIS IS THE NEW THINKING IN FOOTBALL,NOT THE STARTER,THE BACK UP AND THE CRAP......

So we can do all those things you just want to keep between us right?

Will there be 20,000 fans at the next home game?

The dulphins have had two busts of their own. Henne and now tannehill. Together you get hennehill!

In pro football they dont replace the QB even if it is obvious to all that he is having a bad throwing game.They should replace those QBs having those games at halftime unless their team is ahead.Anyone can have a bad throwing game even Cy Young himself, thats why in baseball they bring in the reliever if its obvious hes not throwing well.In football it seems to be another idiosyncracy from the unwritten OLD COACH manual of coaching.Ive seen Bellicheat bring in his backup for one series and pull him out for the next,it happened against the Dolphins in fact.These old ways might have worked then but if it dosent work fix-it if it does dont do anything.Common sense folks.

So there's the Detroit Lions.

Having probably the most disappointing season in the NFL in a year where they were expected to win.

A franchise that has never played in a single Super Bowl.

A franchise that last won a title when Eisenhower was president.

Yet they are playing in a full house in front of loud, enthusiastic fans cheering them on.

Those people DESERVE a winner. You guys? Not really.

Maybe that will be special case in SF but you really don't want to get a Peyton Manning or a Johnny U of their calling plays rythm.

ANY POSTER WHO SAYS HENNE THE JAXS STARTER A BUST IS A DONKEY WITH BROWN SHORT HAIR...KING.............AGREE

No doubt sales of Tannehill jerseys have come to a grinding halt.

SO , YOU COMPARE OUR BELOVED DOLPHINS TO THE WORST TEAM IN THE NFL HISTORY,TO MAKE US FEEL BETTER ...................

YOU R AN OFFICIAL BROWN DONKEY WITH SHORT HAIR.

See, all we need to win is a QB that has more Football smarts than the opposing Teams D Coach.

3-SIMMERING MY GOOSE FOR 40 MINUTES.

Comparing the FANS.

They have real ones. We have a collection of pantyhose-wearing babies.

Would you trade Tannehill to get Henne back?

Of course, if most Players were smarter than their Coaches there would be no need for the latter, would it?

Terrible team = Terrible fans

Henne is only playing because of injury to Gabbert.

4- GOOSE TO THE OVEN @ 375 ..........

THE SINNERING GOOSE JIUCE WILL BE GOOD FOR COOKING RICE BILAF..

It's just that Broward County is full of retired, Baseball loving, Synagogue Goers. Most, they know nothing about Football.(less see if this goes thru in TMH).

BUT HENNE HAD 4 TD VS THE BEST TEAM IN FOOTBALL,ISNT DONKEY ?

THE SIMMERING JIUCES

Today is my birthday and none of my Family have congratulated me yet. Anyone of you want to congratulate me for still being alive? Remember, Today is also the Anniversary of President Kennedy's murder.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU OSCAR..........

You DO NOT put any kind of meat in the oven at 375o, Aloco. Most tender(takes longer) at 325oC

OSCAR,


I SIMMERED THE GOOSE FOR 40 MINUTES,THEN THE OVEN @ 372 TOPPED WITH OLIVE OIL AND STUFFED WITH CHESNUT AND FRESH HERBS AND GARLIC ........I MADE THIS DISH 100 TIMES AND THE MEAT SUPER TENDERS....


GOOSE IS THE BEST BIRD YOU CAN EAT WITH RICE BILAF COOK IN ITS BROTH .......

Aloco, you said henne would make 5 mil. This year. NOT you are the donkey!

YOU R THE DONKEY, WITH SHORT BROWN HAIR .............HENNE WILL BE MAKING 6-7 MILLION BASED ON HIM STARTING FOR THE JAX MIDSEASON ..............

LOOK IT UP ...

ONE REASON HENNE LEFT ,DOLPHINS WOULDN'T PAY HIM IN THE 7 MILLION RANGE .........

...Doing a whole deer in the Caja China(Some of you Cubanos probably have seen these, I use mine for catering, and big events)..This is going to be a hit off the pipe. Happy Thanksgiving.

5- MARIA STARTING TO COOK THE RICE..........

NOT EVERY ONE CAN COOK A CLASSIC RICE BILAF IN THE OVEN.

All you guys talking about feasts and the football game on tv.

Yeah, work is going just fine thanks. Just finished my salad too ... sigh

BTW, someone asked who we drafted instead of Kapernick .. it was Mike Pouncey.

I too also wanted a QB instead of Pouncey but Mike has held up his end of the bargain and now we also have a QB that had a higher draft grade than Mallett, Kapernick or Dalton.

So carry on ...

6- THE RICE BILAF IS IN THE OVEN...

Ryan Leaf had a higher draft grade then Mallet, Kapernick, or Dalton also. Thats meaningless.

Detroit just got robbed.

..Mark in Toronto..I remember on draft day that there was a report from Jason Lacanforna(I think that is his name) that we were seriously considering Kaepernick. I think there was even a thread from Armando confirming this report. Of course there are smoke screens on draft day, and it is hard to believe all the jibber jabber that goes on until the pick is made. I just wonder how close we were to taking him.

In hindsight after the year we had in 2010..Center was a big issue, and I could certainly understand why we passed on a quarterback. 1 Sparano was on the hot seat. It is rare that teams draft quarterbacks early in the draft when coaches jobs are on the line. It happens(see Denver) but if you go back and look at the draft. These examples are rare. I think teams don't want to be forced into a situation where they have to handcuff a new regime with a project not their own. Sparano was tied to Henne and he was going to lie or die on his shoulders.

2 as I mentioned. Center was the gkaring issue on the line. A lot of people question selecting a center so high. This is totaly a valid argument. But Pouncey filled an immediete need, and he started and has been pretty good so far. He certainly has his ups and downs, but is IMO been the most consistant player on the line so far this year.

Sorry but he will never make that. Dulphns fans seek big eared big nosed owner who is a multi millionaire to spend his own money on some elite football players especially at qb to show fans that ylthey really want to WIN!

..ALoco..Happy Thanksgiving.

Miami players gave away turkeys. That's a good job for them. I guess it takes one to know one.

Even the casual fans know Tannehill is at the very bottom of his class and a project.

Matthew Stafford has turned out pretty good for Detroit. Happy Holidays to all. HoHoHo!(very corny, but well).

I Saw the Village Idiot (VIO) Odin on here this morning ranting about Trolls for about 3 hours (3AM Till 6 AM)
I thought Armando had fnally banned the drug infested Hippie.
BTW, Hate never takes a day off.

You really don't want to get JJ Watt mad.

All you guys talking about feasts and the football game on tv.
Yeah, work is going just fine thanks. Just finished my salad too ... sigh
