Looking forward to the draft tonight. Should be interesting. I want to see what the Lions can screw up.

Don't sell them short. They will figure out a way to screw it up.

Dr Fauci makes a prerecorded message prior to the NFL draft. Oh boy, he's big time now!

Pretty sure Joe Burrow's parents can afford some new curtains now!

Lions didn't mess up. I guess if they didn't trade down, that was a solid choice. Poor guy has to go to Detroit though.

Who is Joe Judge and why does an NFL head coach appear to live in a apartment decorated like a college kid? LOL

Top 5 pick for Tua. Great for him. I'm hoping for his good health and talent to make Miami a contender again!

Probably about done watching the draft, but I've enjoyed it. I do not watch much draft coverage anymore, but I liked the at-home version. I like seeing people's offices and houses and stuff. It's been cool, seeing the coaches kids and the player's family in a casual setting. The broadcast has gone well.

Yeah, a few things going against the Dolphins here. One is the health issue, hurt in college, what is going to play out against new schemes, bigger, stronger and faster defensive players? #2 is the guaranteed money you have to give pick #5. Didn't the Dolphins have 6 picks in the 1st 70?...You could have traded down and done so much more for the team....

We'll see.

Not sure if it would happen, but a NE vs TB Super bowl would be pretty interesting.


Tampa gets there before the Pats, who is N.E.'s QB?

Packers take Jordan Love. Interesting pick, but maybe they are just looking to the future. Rodgers is 36yrs old.

Damn, RIP on of the all-time greats, Don Shula.

When I was a kid in the 70s there was a kid that lived behind us and like me, was a sports nut. He was two years older than me and being impressionable at the time, I kind of looked up to him and he was a die-hard Dolphins fan so I figured I should be too. All those years later, I still kind of liked the Dolphins. Marino following after Griese didn't hurt.

Who knows, maybe their perfect record will never be met.

One of the greats - tops all time in career wins
Looked on helplessly as Blanton Collier & the Browns beat the Colts 27-0 in the 1964 championship
5 years later, same thing as Broadway Joe & the Jets beat the heavily favored Colts in SB III
Then Balt won the SB the 1st year after coach Shula’s move to Miami on Jim O’Brien’s miracle FG
Leading to another SB loss the next year, to Dallas

So people wondered about coach Shula’s ability to win the big one
But he proved them wrong - would love to have seen them beat SF in 1985
RIP, Don Shula

Yeah, of course there's no sports right now so the blowhard sports talk guys are blowing this out of proportion like it's 2005 again. Rodgers is 36 and he isn't the iron man Favre was - he missed almost 2 whole seasons at times when GB barely had any backup QBs. So this looks to the future and the present. Realistically Rodgers has 5 years max left as an elite QB. If he has more, I bet you GB won't pay a 41 year-old, they look forward and that's why they stay competitive. Love could suck, he move on after his rookie contract is up in 3 years if Rodgers is still playing well, or he could take over before then if Rodgers breaks another collar bone. I guarantee it will motivate Rodgers this season.

Schedule came out. I watched a couple minutes last night. NFL network said they were going to do a 4 hour show on the schedule! Is that normal for a schedule release show or is it just pent-up need to talk sports.

NFL says any tickets purchased through them or their direct licensed seller (which I think is seat geek?) will get refunds if games get played with no fans.

Thanks for that synopsis. I was not fully aware of Shula's earlier struggles to get over the hump in championship games - then failed to realize Colts won it the year after he left.

He was at an autograph show I went to once, I had him sign a photo of the team carrying him off the field following his 325th win. I just told him I appreciated him being at the show. Cool story of that win - current Eagles Coach Doug Pederson was the winning QB in a reserve role for the Dolphin's that day in Philly:

Reward Fits: Shula Gets Carried Off Field : Interconference: Dolphins forgo dousing coach and do the classy thing after record-setting victory over Eagles.
By BILL PLASCHKE
Nov. 15, 1993
12 AM
TIMES STAFF WRITER
PHILADELPHIA —

The greatest tribute to Don Shula Sunday involved the one his players would not offer.

Respect for the NFL’s winningest coach was an untouched Gatorade cooler.

Members of the Miami Dolphins were going to dump the liquid on their leader during the final moments of Shula’s record 325th career victory, a 19-14 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

But at the last second, they changed their minds.

He had just led them to a second-half comeback with their third-string quarterback. He had just convinced them, once again, to embrace the improbable.

They didn’t want him looking like a drowned rat. They wanted him looking like a king.

“A classy man,” guard Keith Sims said. “We looked at the Gatorade and said, ‘You know, we need to do a classy thing.’ ”

And so he was lifted by three linemen and carried across the Veterans Stadium field, his right arm thrust to the sky, his eyes moist, surrounded by dozens of his players straining to touch him.

In passing George Halas for the most career coaching wins in NFL history, Shula traveled in style.

“I think the last time I was up there was in 1972 when we went 17-0,” Shula said of his ride. “It’s been a long time since I’ve been on top of anybody’s shoulders. This is a win I’ll always remember.”

So will quarterback Doug Pederson.

Before Sunday, his biggest pro game was in the spring of 1992, when he led the New York/New Jersey Knights to a victory over their bitter rivals, the Frankfurt (Germany) Galaxy.

Pederson, 25, was a third stringer in the World League. When Sunday began, he was the Dolphins’ second stringer behind Scott Mitchell.

Twenty-seven seconds into the second half, with the Dolphins trailing, 14-13, he was standing under center.

Mitchell suffered a separated left shoulder by colliding with linebacker Britt Hager. First Dan Marino, now this.

Teammates were hiding their heads. Gary Stevens, offensive coordinator, was holding out his hands as if to say, what do we do now?

Only Shula did not change his expression. Urging Pederson to stay calm, he instantly downsized their offense and hustled him in for his first NFL regular-season snap.

“I tried to be calm, but with everything flashing through my head, it was real hard,” Pederson said.

On his fourth play from scrimmage, with the Dolphins preparing to score the go-ahead touchdown after recovering an Eagle fumble, Pederson gave the ball back by fumbling on the one-yard line.

“Coach Shula still didn’t say anything bad to me,” Pederson said. “He just kept telling me it was going to be all right, telling me that I could do it.”

And so he did, leading the Dolphins to two field goals while not making any more mistakes. So what if the scores came after drives of one and 45 yards?

The Eagles, with a fumble, a missed field-goal attempt and a dropped pass by James Lofton on the Dolphins’ 10-yard line in the final seconds, did the rest.

After the game, Shula, wearing red lipstick that new wife Mary Anne had distributed across his formidable jaw, said: “This game was special to me mainly because of the way we won.”

Shula, who is now 325-153-6 in the regular season and playoffs, added, “After the game, I thanked the team for hanging in there.”

And the players returned the plaudits by surprising him with an autographed, framed drawing of a sculpture that they have commissioned for him. The sculpture will feature a large hand holding a football.

“I’m sure many of his 325 wins were like this, not pretty, a struggle requiring perseverance,” said veteran linebacker John Offerdahl, who presented the gift.

One of those games was earlier this season, when the Dolphins were trailing the Cleveland Browns, 14-10, when Marino was knocked out for the season with a torn Achilles’ tendon.

“We put in our second string quarterback and won that game, too, right?” Sims asked. “For Coach Shula to pull that off twice in one year, that is really something.”

With Mitchell out for four to six weeks, there are more difficult moments ahead. Pederson, who has been waived during training camp the past three years, threw only six passes, completing three for 34 yards. The offense ran the ball 21 times when he was in the game.

It figures that the Dolphin quarterback for the next month will probably be veteran Steve DeBerg, who was signed this week after being cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“Will we survive?” defensive end Jeff Cross asked. “Do we have a choice?”

Not under Don Shula, they don’t.
