Derrick Henry carried the ball 31 times. They're going to just drive that guy into the ground.

His backup was out so there was no one to share with.  Tannehill also threw it 43 times.  Kind of remarkable they only scored twice.

Trump supporters predictably lapping up Thursday night football and Sunday night football ratings being down almost a third from last year whilst ignoring the Saints/Bucs game getting Fox's highest rating in four years.

It's not conservatism without selection bias.

And of course to Trump and his cronies all that matters are ratings not taking into account digital viewership because they are too afraid of technology.

They claim to factor in some digital viewership I think but I just can't see a way it's accurate. Especially since people like me have two screens on a lot during football Saturdays and Sundays.

Send him to the Cowboys and make him restructure to be receiving peanuts. >_>

Second dumbest thing he's done behind trading his entire draft for Ricky Williams.

Nah, this is much dumber, Ricky Williams was really fucking good. Still the best football player I've ever seen in person.

Imagine thinking "You know what I like about stadiums? Traffic!"

This post brought to you by ESPN: You don't need to be an idiot to work here, but it helps.

I don't know much about Hard Rock besides the fact the only place to go after game days is the Walmart next door.

Well Joe Robbie Stadium* doesn't have many bars next to it, but honestly, that's a bit to it's advantage. It's extremely accessible for locals, most of which live closer to it than the beach. And if you want to grab a bite after a game, there are options, most of the major fast food joints, a Denny's (they do serve alcohol there!) and The Licking, which I've yet to go to (though I've been meaning to, as there was one near where I used to live) but heard nothing but good things about, owned by DJ Khaled.

EDIT- Honestly the worst thing about JRS is the parking, because it has awful parking. I've seen worse though... like Coral Sky up in Palm Beach.

*Yes I call it that no matter what the official name is. Joe Robbie built it. It is his stadium. It is, objectively, a Joe Robbie Stadium.

For what it's worth an ESPN journalist is going to care a ton about what there's to do by the stadium. It's why everyone trips over themselves to cover Miami Heat games. A lot of NFL stadiums including three of the league's marquee franchises (Pats, Giants, and 49ers) are in suburbs miles outside of the city center. It actually makes for a better experience for fans on that side of town. Long Island and Connecticut NFL fans are screwed but everyone in Jersey has it easy not needing to deal with the eternal chaos that is crossing over to New Jersey.

I had a friend whose dad would trek up from northern Maryland about 3-4 hours on Sundays for Giants games and that wasn't much more than what someone on LI might deal with. There is a way to take trains to the Meadowlands and if you love multiple transfers then you'll be in heaven.

But, back to ESPN. Their writers tend to rate on what there is to do before and after games since they don't deal with the commute. They look at the presence of public transit, the presence of bars and a downtown region, and in special cases proximity to beaches. They don't care about how accessible the stadium is for home fans, they're writing those articles for away fans. I know a lot of Ravens fans who fly to Miami when we play down there but, again, they spend no time around the stadium before or after the game. Which makes it kind of annoying as a road fan.

Denny's tho.

But that's fair, I guess. For locals, though, that statement is unintelligible.

Plus, there's a pretty important reason for it being in what's now Miami Gardens; they used to play in the Orange Bowl downtown (where Marlins Park stands today) but the city threatened to hike their rent 400%. So Dolphins owner Joe Robbie (hence the name) was like "Well fuck all y'all, I'll buy some land and make my own damn stadium". And then there was Joe Robbie Stadium, and it was good.

EDIT- Course, if you don't mind the drive, there's a Flanigan's not too far from MIA, and they're the best. Try the rib rolls sometime. >.>
