BB, nothing wrong with being offensive. The Dolphins should try that some time. As for “unstable,” don’t confuse his output as anything other than him not being a politician.

the shadow knows, I do find the move by our President to be refreshing. A small example of why so many support him. The guy said he would do so and did. Other presidents going back to Clinton promised doing exactly the same thing and ended up lying. That’s 24 years of Clinton, Bush and Obama combined.

Thanks for your insights, shadow.

I just hope that my early scenario comes through...that the Dolphins do what is expected of them and lose their last four games, giving them no worse than the seventh overall pick. Thus, and due the general acceptance that teams don’t ordinarily draft OGs that early in the first round, that The mauler from Notte Dame, Quenten Nelson is still on the board and Miami picks him. Given the play of the line AND that Tannehill needs all the protection he can get coming back from injury, I’d say that that would be their best outcome.

Taller, more attitudinally “safe” QBs that have demonstrated outstanding play a from equally credible programs to Oklahoma (UCLA, USC) should make those two the first off the board. But hey, what do I know.

Too much talent at a bunch other positions will force teams to lay off QBs after those two are off the board.

The UCLA and USC QBs will both go before pick 10.

Late first round.

the shadow knows, Just curious. Are you in agreement of President Trump’s view to recognize Jerusalem as Capital of Israel, or do you side with the common position held by Democrats (Kerry, Obama, et al), not to piss off the Palestinians?

Are you known to be a glass half full in other areas too, BB?

BB, The Sooner QB is at best the 4th best QB behind Rosen, the SC guy and the QB from Wyoming. The Dolphins are not going to take a second round, undersized guy in hopes he’s the next Russell Wilson. Not when they’ve got Tannehill coming back and a massive need to fix the OL. My tea leaves say that they will select the OG from Norte Dame, Donte, is it Nelson?, when they pick 7 overall.

During the Telecast, one of the announcers was commenting on Tiger’s financial impact to the game, where pre-Tiger there were ten golfers who would typically earn $10M per year. Post Tiger, 100 golfers.

Having said that, his swing remains as forceful as it’s been through his championship years. We know the physical damage that produced. So I’m suspicious on how long he will be able to remain healthy. I’m just excited for golf. Regardless on whether one likes the guy or not. The guy is great for the sport.

the shadow knows, I guarantee you that anyone could locate even five people in the world who thought him capable of returning back to this form. Count me first in those who thought - never!

Big Baby, A few stats for ya...Tiger’s world ranking entering this week: 1,199th. Players and rankings he tied or beat in this tournament: 1 Dustin Johnson 3 Justin Thomas 7 Brooks Koepka 8 Henrik Stenson 15 Matt Kutchar 17 Alex Noren 25 Kevin Kisner 28 Daniel Berger 32 Kevin Chappell Every player interviewed expressed outright giddiness to have Tiger back among them. All except one Sergio Garcia who tweeted: “sh**!”

Watched the Hero World Championship in Nassau instead. Far, far more entertaining to me.

Meanwhile, New England’s Backup QB probably goes by the name of Ted Winns.

Great, we have a backup quarterback with a name pronounced David Fails.

What takes everyone out is Father Time. After they reached a certain age, all the greats could manage playing great the first round, but could not compete come Day two, three and four. He passed his first test. The second may be harder.

Frankly, I would never have believed he could ever play at this level again. He had one bad drive, but the rest were perfect, even outdriving Justin Thomas who is one of the tour’s longest hitter. That frozen rope 2i that hit the green 265 and into the wind. Heck, that was very impressive.

Tiger shot a 69 to be -3 over in the Bahamas. The Hero World Challenge. All the usual top golfers are there. Watched the telecast and I’ve got to say that I didn’t expect to see Tiger play as well as he did. His swing is far better now than it was before he was forced out last year. Will be interesting to see how his body reacts through these next three days.

Nice to see Tiger out there competing.

Woods, I’ve tweeked my golf game yet again. Looks very promising, but it’s going to take more than two bucket sessions.
