Ten issues facing the Miami Dolphins

The last month or so has been interesting because tons of stuff has happened with the Dolphins that have led to many notions of what is about to happen. Some of those notions are probably well-founded (such as Joey Porter is going to get cut) while others aren't.

I figured today would be a good day to address some of these flights of fancy based on what I know, what experience tells me and, in some cases, what is only an educated guess.

1. Joey Porter. He will get cut. The Dolphins need to get Cameron Wake into games and they can't have Porter being a "progress stopper." Porter cannot stay around as a backup because he'd be a locker room cancer in that role. So Porter has played his final game for the Dolphins. This I know.

2. Gibril Wilson. I was talking to a Dolphins source about Wilson and without prodding, he told me, "All I know is we can get rid of anyone we don't think can do the job without it hurting our ability to get other players." So that tells me the Dolphins are strongly leaning toward getting rid of Wilson if they haven't decided to do so already. A free safety is supposed to be the final line of defense and it seemed like Wilson was instead an open invitation to score touchdowns. Add to that the fact he didn't bring any game-changing plays to the table, and I think you get the idea.

3. Elvis Dumervil. ESPN's Adam Schefter, perhaps the best information man in the business, said during the playoffs that Dumervil would be on "Miami's radar" based on the fact former Denver defensive coordinator Mike Nolan is now Miami's defensive coordinator. Well, Salguero, a relative peon by comparison, is telling you this will not happen. Dumervil will not be a Dolphin in 2010. First, the Broncos aren't going to let him go. Secondly, Dumervil isn't an unrestricted free agent, but rather will be a restricted free agent. Third, the Dolphins will not pay multiple draft picks plus a huge contract for Dumervil when their list of needs is immense and the draft is the most viable way for filling those needs. So we'll see who is right on this one.

4. Brandon Marshall. The Denver wide receiver will be traded. And it will not be to the Dolphins. I'm thinking more likely it will be to a team like Chicago. That part is a guess. The trade of Marshall part of the equation? Book it.

5. Anquan Boldin. This is a totally different situation than Marshall. The price tag has dropped on Boldin and the Cardinals will be looking to get something for him this offseason because he's a free agent after 2010 and they've already identified a replacement for him in Early Doucet. The Dolphins like Boldin. He's tough. He's big. He is not a diva. Did he complain about his contract? Yes. He had a legitimate complaint. Does that make him a bad dude? Absolutely not. The Cards will probably ask a second-round pick for him. Somebody will offer a fourth. Depending on how high the selection, I'd say he could be had for a third rounder. Doesn't mean the Dolphins will do it. But they will absolutely discuss it.

6. Channing Crowder. Many of you on my twitter, which you should be following are asking if Crowder will be cut based on his agreement with Porter on several issues during their radio appearance this week. That is not Crowder's biggest concern. His concern should be having a great offseason so that next year he can start 16 games, which he has not done since arriving in 2005. Crowder finished fifth on the team in tackles last season. Fifth. He had fewer than half the tackles he had in 2008. It was a bad year for him. That's the type of stuff that gets you replaced, not a couple of sentences on one radio show. Bottom line: I think Crowder stays.

7. Ted Ginn Jr. Dan Marino, one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, recently said Ginn has the makings of a No. 1 receiver, that all he needs is time to develop. Salguero the peon disagrees. Oh, Ginn has the speed. But he doesn't seem to have the temperment or quickness or hands to be a No. 1 receiver. Now, I would never question what's in a man's heart. But I've seen this guy run out of bounds too many times when he could have gained an extra couple of yards. I've seen him drop too many passes in pressure situations. And last year he he regressed rather than progressed. I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid any more. I leave that to Marino.

8. Ronnie Brown. Many of you have asked if the Dolphins are going to re-sign him to a new contract. He is under contract for 2010 if there is no salary cap. And it is a virtual certainty there will be no salary cap. So I ask you, what is Miami's motivation for giving him a new long-term contract now? It seems wiser to let him come to training camp and prove himself (yes, again). It also seems wiser to get a better grasp on what the labor agreement is going to look like. Signing him to a long-term deal now is simply not wise. I assume the Dolphins recognize this.

9. Chad Pennington. He only works for the Dolphins under a strict set of circumstances: That he is healthy, first and foremost. And that he accepts that he is the backup to Chad Henne. Pennington is one of those guys that gets it. He won't be trouble as a backup. He won't step on Henne's toes. And he would bring value as an insurance policy against a Henne injury that neither Pat White nor Tyler Thigpen can offer. He is experienced. He is a great leader. But his return is absolutely, positively not done. I would say his return right now is 50-50 at best.

10. Jason Taylor. He is the antithesis to Joey Porter in that he doesn't go off like a cocked pistol ready to shoot everything in order to hit a small target. Taylor is more calculating. He was every bit as angry in 2010 as Porter because he was, in fact, platooned more than Porter. Taylor lost more snaps than Porter did as the Dolphins used third-down to get Cameron Wake and even Charlie Anderson more snaps. That made Taylor so unhappy he cooled on returning for 2010. Now, he obviously understands that if Porter isn't coming back, his chances of returning on a one-year contract improve. But the Dolphins are making no commitment to Taylor. And he, frankly, is making none to them. He'd like to be back in Miami if he's going to get an opportunity to rush the passer and play significant downs. If that's not the case, life will not end for Taylor. He will play somewhere. But to pretend to know where is crazy at this early stage in the process.

phinsfan from birth73 - The last 3 games we lost were not because of Henne! He played great. Our defense did not show up. You talk about Henne never beating the "suckeyes", well genious Peyton Manning never beat Florida and also did not win anything "big" in college. So, how do you like that comparison? No love for Pat White here is because when you take someone in the 2nd round you expect PRODUCTION and we got nothing. I liked him in college, don't get me wrong, but with his size he looks like a boy amongst men. He needs to bulk up BIG TIME!! Also, I just do not see him at the QB position in the NFL or at least not for another 4 years AT LEAST!

Ginn will never develope into a number one reciever because he has no heart and to desire to win. He runs out of bounds short of first downs and is afriad to take a hit in the open field. He is the reason we lost to Indy this year. On the final drive he ran out of bounds short of a first down then went into the fetal position in the open field when he was about to get hit. If he would have caught that ball it would have given us a huge gain. Marino must be drinking some patron with his nutrisystem. Ginn had his time to develope but you can't develope someone that doesn't have the drive to be the best and win.

Ginn beat the JETS!! (TWICE) Thats enough for me!!

DEACTIVATE HIM VS THE REST OF THE NFL AND PLAY HIM VS THE JETS ONLY!!

dc finatic, you are right about ginn not have the true wr skills as jackson but ginn is on par with jackson and harvin as far as yards per touch!! #1harvin 17.8,#2ginn 17.7 and #3jackson 17.6 min. 100 touches. like i said before either the OC needs to change his play calling or we need better wr coach. ginn has had like 6 returns called back in his career,the year with pennington he caught everything thrown at him,this year he had a great game vs colt, the over the shoulder catch in the back of the endzone was one of the best i've seen and the two kickoff returns. do your remember how many time you thought wes welker was going to score touchdowns on returns only to get ran down. we have no speed on this offense besides him, teams will always stack the box without speed or player with the threat of speed!! last i checked ginn was the on wr to beat revis straight up

do you think henne will be the next manning? one more note SEC or BIG 10? apples and oranges

Phinsfan from birth73,
The CB is responsible for sealing the edge and pushing everything back inside in the run game. Overall I think S. Smith did ok with this during the season. You can't blame this kid for that since his main job is to cover the WR. I agree that he needs to be a lot more physical at times and he needs to use his size to his advantage. However, remember that he was a WR converted to CB in college and the reason why he was drafted was because of his ball skills, not his ability to tackle. Overall it's up the DB coach and Mike Nolan to teach this guy how to be more physical and a better tackler. I got a feeling that next year he will break out and silence a lot of critics.

Armando - I am surprised you did not have Antrell Rolle in your conversation along with Boldin. You even had a article the other day in regards to him. Is there any other news about his situation?

enrique, you make valid points but there are plenty of cb that dont mind getting their nose dirty and aren't nearly as big as smith and most of the big run came on the weakside especially at the end of the year.

damn micheal irving been accused of rape!!!!!!!

phinsfan from birth73 - I agree with you on Ginnwith almost everything. He had his moments of greatness and terrible play. There was no in between though. Also, the whole Revis island crap and no one could beat him, but it was Ted Ginn Jr. who out ran not only Revis but 2 other jets on a 50-60 yard bomb by Henne! Like I said with a true #1 receiver, Ginn will be a lot better.

As far as Henne the next Manning, no way! It is hard to be the same as one of the greatest. Look at Marino, Elway, Montana, etc. You just don't be the next "Manning" or whoever, but you can still be great in your own special way. I do believe Henne will be really good some day. He has only had 13 career starts and I like what I see. As far as Big Ten vs. SEC...those are not apple and oranges. The depth of the conferences may not be as good, but the top teams in the Big Ten can compete with any other conference just like most the conferences in the country. I know most people outside of "Big Ten Country" don't see it that way which makes sense, but I am in the heart of Big Ten Country. You are trying to compare Henne against 1 team and I jsut tried to compare Manning to just one team. Another side not for you...Drew Brees came from Big Ten Country even though it was Purdue and I am not a Purdue fan, it is still a fact!!

Good stuff Armando, I agree with you on just about everything. I would love to see Boldin on the Phins. I think this would bring out the best in our other WRs including Ginn who could be very useful as #2 WR. With Boldin being such a good over the middle WR this would allow Ginn to really step up into his true rule as a deep threat and keep him away from the middle of the field where he just does not like to go.
The one point I disagree with you on is Pennington. Don't get me wrong, I love what Pennington did for this team and he is a class act. However, if you bring him back it will create unnecessary competition with Henne. Henne has shown the ability to be a good NFL QB, he just needs the reps and experience. You can see how the season went on he became a bigger and bigger focus of the Offense. I would not do anything that would shake his confidence. Additionally I think Thigpen is a good #2 option. He has considerable playing time in KC and he is gifted physically. Pat White is a good developmental project as a #3 and he still does offer some value in specialty packages, I would not give up on those just yet.

SHULA (name deserves caps) on Porter:

"He obviously wants out. I'm sure he'll be accommodated."

i love when we can agree to disagree!i hope henne does well too. he has all the tools to be great but sometimes just having the tools ain't enough

Mando,
One of your best pieces this year in my opinion. They cant cut Porter fast enough for me. I am huge dolphins fan, but ready for him to go. He had one good year out of 3, and is seemingly unwilling to help the young guns develop. Wilson was just awful, he hasnt been the same since he left teh Giants. They will keep Ginn, he will never have a worse year than he did last year. It is all upside going forward, and paired with a legit #1, and crafty slot, he will excel. Yes he needs to be MUCH tougher.

Phinsfan from birth -- Ok, you offered a few good plays Ginn had (see, I'm open-minded). And one thing I agree with you on, is we need speed. Real speed, Ted Ginn speed. But the only reason Ginn is on that list with Harvin and Jackson is because he has so few catches (other than the 5 or so, including the Colts catch, which you're right, was nice, I forgot about that one) he caught nothing. Remember the games where he had one catch for 12 yds? I've gotta think if the Saints can get Colston in the 7th-round or whatever, then we can find a better player than Ginn somewhere in the draft. And look, again, I'm not opposed to having him on the team if it's just for Special Teams, and maybe a few snaps at WR. But again, it doesn't matter in 2010, but the next capped season should see Ginn gone or playing for league minimum (that's all he's worth).

Report has it TO and Ochocinco want to play together...WOW! That would be very, very, very interesting...

you can put ginn in the same boat as devin hester,but i think ginn is a better wr b/c he has played it more than hester. if i was coach ginn would run bubble screen,quick slants,deep outs and go route,kick returns and punt returns!! most wr dont take big hits and some of the best never have taken a big hit their whole career. on a lighter note i would hate to play madden next year and the fast player on the team will be vonte davis

11. which WR would you cut when a new one is brought in?

Who would you cut?
P. Turner
T. Ginn
D. bess
G. Camarillo
B. Hartline

dont think you can keep all 5 of these guys if we bring in 1 or more new WRs either through the draft or free agency.

i would try and get something for greg camarillo!

I wish Jeff Darlington wrote this blog. I don't think he'd talk down to his readers as much, or pretend to know everything. He might even have interesting things to report, as opposed to commenting on other news items from other other, better outlets.

Also, the "scout in training" stuff? Really boring.

-- Bebo

well i just watch the colt and saints play on madden and the final score was colts 35 and saints 7! i predict colts 34 saints 20

Also, Phinsfan from birth, it's silly for you to say Pat White can be a better QB than Henne based on what they did in college. Dude, college doesn't translate to the pro's, especially at QB (that's why Tebow will be a bust in the NFL most likely). Even with that said, you've seen Henne in the NFL make every throw basically that Peyton Manning and Drew Brees make. Have you seen Pat White make ONE throw in the NFL? If you did, it was in practice or a pre-season game. I can't believe after this year ANYONE in the world could say Pat White is more likely to be a good NFL QB than Chad Henne. That's so incredibly unrealistic and unbelievable that I'm almost at a loss for words. I'm trying to be nice here brotha, really don't wanna come down on you too hard. But if I were you I'd watch every game this season again, and come back and give your opinion again. Henne was what, 7-6 in his first season? What do you wanna bet Pat White would have been this season (I guarantee 0-13). Pat White is a bust, I'm sorry you can't see that, but take the rest of the world's word for it. You may think you know something everyone else doesn't, but let me bust your bubble and tell you that Pat White ever being a credible QB in the NFL is not it, I put that on everyone close to me that I love's life. That's how sure I am.

Steve - No way we keep them all, especially when Turner couldn't even get in the game with 5 wr's on the team, not to mention if we get 6 WR's...

Bebo - Armando talking down to us when he calls himself a peon. He is just giving his opinion which is his job. He does not state he knows everything. If you think you could do better, wouldn't you have his job or one similar to it. If you don't like, don't come read or comment

then trade Pat White for a 2nd rounder cus he was a huge mistake.

Posted by: Mark | February 05, 2010 at 05:30 AM

LMAO A 2nd rounder for Pat White because he was a huge mistake? What the other teams won't know he was a mistake? A second rounder because he(Pat White) is a proven commodity? You a f'kin joking!! Name one team that would give up a second rounder for him?

typo: you are f'kin joking!!

one last thought on ginn troubles. i remember reggie wayne not producing for like 3 years before peyton finally started to believe in him and now he's one of the best at the position. time and patience!!! we could give up to early, its not like he's 30, the kid is still young!! let him work with duper,micheal irving,or chris carter to better his skills

I'm a Michigan college fan, and I can tell you, after the SEC, the Big 10 is the best division in football. If you can play 4 years as a starter in the Big 10, you can play anywhere in the NFL, simple as that. Look at the 2 SuperBowl QB's, from the SEC and where, BIG 10 BABY!! All day!

It all makes sense…I wouldn’t bet against you on any of it…But I will voice my peons opinion.
1. Porter’s got to go…however 10 sacks don’t grow on trees…he has value…when healthy he is good for 10 or more sacks… more on that later.
2. Cut Gibril Wilson and save the money down the road…he is not the answer at FS. If Antrel Rolle becomes available try to sign him…if not…let Jason Allen and Chris Clemons compete for the spot.
3. Dumervil…Snow-balls chance in Hell.
4. Brandon Marshal…we will at least inquire…but someone else will out bid us.
5. Anquan Boldin…this is doable…offer a 4th and Porter…the Cardinals need sacks badly…when healthy Porter is a sack mister…Porter said he would play for the Cardinals maybe he would be willing to re-work his contract to make it happen…I know…Snow-balls chance in Hell.
6. Channing Crowder’s mouth won’t affect his status on the team…his poor play will…however we have a lot of other holes to fill without creating another.
7. Trade Ted Ginn to Baltimore for a 4th or even a 5th…the Ravens need WR help badly and Cam Cameron is there in Baltimore and he loves the Ginn family.
8. Ronnie Brown…nail on the head.
9. Would love to see Pennington as Henne’s back-up…for all the reasons you’ve stated…and I’ll add Pat White should be moved to slot receiver….with Thigpen as the #3.
10. Taylor has done everything the Dolphins have asked…played out of position…played hurt...and has kept his mouth shut…he probably wouldn’t mind platooning on the weak-side.

Listen Indiana Dolfan wuss dont you speak to me like that. Get your middle aged @zz out of here.

dc finatic, i never said white would be a starter or a future qb star,but one year is notenough time to say if he will or not bust. for the things we like to do(wildcat), yes i can see pat white being the triggerman of the wildcat vs. ronnie brown because he can throw!! we have player with special skills and i dont think the staff uses them to their potential. and 5- passes in a year dont mean white cant throw not to mention he never complained(public) about the changes that he had to make(gloves and thowing motion). i say we need more than 1 year to judge this kid. we need to be mad at the picker not the pickee

Hey Indiana Dolfan,
Not really sure what you're saying in your first sentence, so I'm going to ignore that failed attempt at English.

As for Mando giving his opinion -- yes, I'm very much aware that's his job. He's just not very good at expressing it. He speaks in overarching, grandiose terms and talks to his readers as if we just saw our first football game. It adds very little and is condescending and not informative. You get more info from a news item at ProFootballTalk or ESPN that's 2-3 sentences long than these 300-400 word essays that just serve to build Mando up as some kind of bastion of Dolphins reportage. He's not. Just because you do something for a long time doesn't mean you're particularly good at it. This blog reads like it's written by a know-it-all who doesn't really know much, based on what's actually being reported. And you guys just feed into that.

And trust me, if there was a better Dolphins blog from The Herald or The Sun-Sentinel, I'd gladly read that instead of this uninspired, grammatical trainwreck. Maybe I just like the idea of Miami's major daily newspaper having a decent Dolphins blog that I can follow. Unfortunately, that's not the reality.

What would Rex Ryan expect when he runs his mouth and asks for fights ever since he became the Jets coach, then he goes to a MMA (of all things a fight event) event in SOUTH FLORIDA? He had to know he would get heckled especially when he ran his mouth at the event on the PA during his interview. My favorite quote (except for the dying portion) from the article:

"Then he said, 'I hate you. I hope you die, you fat piece of crap,' and then spit at him."

Fat Rex Ryan deserved everything he got at that event!! Come to Indy sometime Rex and if I would see you I probably would flat out punch you or at least definatley get heckled, because I don't think going to jail would be worht punching him. Then again, Indy fans don't like you either LOSER!!

Ace, Josh thinks the broncos will give us dumervil and marshall for porter, camarillo & crowder plus a 2nd rounder. Maybe we can throw in white and get our 2nd rounder back!! That would be awesome!! We would get marshall and dumervil for practically nothing. We should definitely do this!!

Maybe it's time to trade Ted Ginn. There is a WR form Ohio Taylor Price, that could be available at a 3th round, and could make the same situational WR better than Ted. Trade Pat White for a 5th will be Ok

6. Channing Crowder’s mouth won’t affect his status on the teamPosted by: Edge | February 05, 2010 at 11:01 AM

Remember Jay Feely?

Indiana Dolfan, old man you could punch your way out of a cracker jack box, you stinkin cupcake

phin .......73
couldnt agree with you more on ted gnn jr
hate the lack of tuffness about him ,just ask menace,but seriously,is there any one else?
gets double teamed all the time;beat the jets 2 times!!!!!
its like dating a super hot smokin body double woman with insane mood swings.

typo ; double d

Phinsfan, you're right, I'm more angry at the Tuna for wasting a 2nd-round pick on White than at White himself. And I also wouldn't mind him sticking around if he was used differently (not as a QB). Wildcat, not sure man. Yeah, he has the potential to throw (if you call a screen a threatening pass) but doesn't have 1/2 of Ronnie's abilities to run the ball. Again, the facts don't support what you're saying. How many yards did Brown get outta the Wildcat? How many did White get? Point made. Ronnie Brown will never get knocked out from any hit. He might get his leg broke, but never knocked out. Pat White wasn't even that fast (thought he'd be faster). Actually, more we talk about it, more I'm feeling like Pat White can't offer this team that much. Sorry, that's just my feelings on the matter.

Cocoajoe, I don't want to remember Feely.

Are we not Men?

No.

We are Bebo.

DC Finatic and all Ginn haters,
I Agree with you that Ginn is not the receiver and probably never will be the type of receiver Jackson is.

He doesn't have all those great receiver qualities Jackson does "He doesn't have Jackson's vision, his route-running ability, his hands, his grit, his football prowess, his toughness" - ALL that, Agreed.

But here's what I'm saying, use the players hyou have to the best of their abilities! We relied on Ginn to be a "Marshall or Boldin" and that WE all can agree that he never will be. There for when you try to force a player to be something he's not, he will ALWAYS give you the same negative results and thats exactly what happened here with Tedd Ginn last year.

Now here's what Tedd Ginn is great at: Returning kicks - broke a single game record last year against the pesky Jets!
Why not maximize that ability by also letting him Return Punts??? HELLO!!???

Also, I can think of 5 bombs that were thrown to Ted Ginn all Season long, the result: Two Over thrown passes and Three Tds (One called back o-line holding call). YOU HAVE TO TAKE THOSE SHOTS when you have this type of player! - We did not do that last year! Do you see the success rate here (3tds out 5 attmpts) when you put players in a positon to be successful???

Less than 10 reverses were run by Ted Ginna last year, when in 2008 he had 2 for Tds and 4 or more that went for 25+ yards.... again, put your players in a position to be successful!

You know those short slants thrown to Bess? He's good at them but why not set that up for Ginn?? High percentage catch play and put a wall of blockers in front of him.... again, allow your players to do what they're good at and don't force them to be something they're not! Thats what happened all of last year with Ted Ginn.

I said it all last off-season WE NEED A #1 RECEIVER! AND THATS AGAIN THE CASE THIS OFFSEASON!! WE NEED TO GET A TRUE #1 RECEIVER IT WILL OPEN UP THE POSSIBILITES FOR ALL OF OUR RECEIVERS!!

I DON'T THINK ITS CRAZY TO THINK TED GINN WILL HAVE An 8-12 TD YEAR, IF THE FINS DO THE FOLLOWING:
1. SIGN A TRUE #1 RECEIVER (Boldin or Marshall)
2. Let Ginn Return Both Kicks and PUNTS
3. Run reverses when the time is right
4. Attempt more Fly plays to Ginn (specially when this #1 guy will get most of the attention)
5. Give him short slant plays with blockers in front of him (an extension of the run)

If we do that and Ted Ginn doesn't have atleast 8-12 tds then I will gladly admit that I was totally wrong about this guy, but until then the fact is that we DID NOT Utilize this guy's ability to it's max potential all of last year.

Ex. If you buy a microwave hoping for it to toast your bread, guest what? You'll find you will always get a soggy piece of bread. Toasters are for toasting, microwaves are not.
Point is Ginn is a playmaker not a #1 Receiver!
Thanks

Indy, I saw Fat Rex at Strikeforce Miami (on tv, he was interviewed), and it was hysterical. He was trashed. What a loser! BUT, and I hate to admit it, he's probably the best defensive coach in the NFL right now. It's really impressive what he did with the Jets D this year. I would love to have him as Miami's DC. I know, it hurts to write that, but it's true. This guy knows how to impose a defense on an offense. We need some of that fire on our team. With that said, WE CRUSH THE JETS TWICE NEXT SEASON, NO DOUBT!!!!

my last thought on white is this, no he no ronnie brown in terms of run thru the line of scrimmage but run to the outside and a few passes to running backs, te, and wr out of the wildcat would make it unstoppable!! that formation is nearly unstoppable with the right people in the right postions. i would replace ronnie with white, swap rickie and ronnie(fatigue),and bring a wr out where henne lines up at. truth be told rickie run plays produce the most yards out of the cat this year. having white as the triggerman still leaves the cat intact but also adds the element of a passing game. its not the player moreso the staffs lack of creativity

bebe =sun sentinal trolls
take your pick
knight whatever
hsb2010 please dont get me started with this whack job.
tin / ffr mr bungle herd or turd not sure just kiddin my bad even nj goes there and disses and rips us ..
just so you know

Bebo - Me old age? Far from it pal...

As for my first sentence you couldn't understand, I am sorry you couldn't understand English.

It was asked can we keep all 5 WR's if we aquire a 6th. So, this year we had 5 WR and not all 5 were even active and Turner couldn't even get into the game, so if we aquire a 6th, then we are getting rid of someone, if not 2 WR's douchbag!!

If you think this blog is so bad, why are you reading and posting. It must not be that terrible LOSER!!

Hey big brother,
Nice diss there -- you managed to not only misspell my handle, but The Sun-Sentinel, too! Score one for you.

Bebo

Jamillion, that was the best defense of Ginn I've ever heard. Can't really disagree with anything you're saying. Maybe with a true #1 receiver, Ginn will be freed up to do what he does. But that's not gonna happen with Dan Henning (IMO). He's not a long bomb-type OC. And I agree, Ginn should get more screen passes, reverses and the like. Maybe that will open up the field some. Again, not sure the coaching staff has the confidence to do that. I'd like to think they can change their mind, but history has shown they're pretty comfortable with their own vision (and who am I to disagree, I've never won one game in the NFL). I just don't see them using Ginn that way, so trying to free up a much needed roster spot.

dc phinatic, Ginn has had more than a few 100 plus yrd games... You do not give any credit bcuz his draft spot. the Kid came in tothe league as an undersized kid but he wont stay that way his whole life. It took Steve Smith 3 yrs just to get a start when he came into the league... with underdeveloped wide receivers you need to have patience for them to build muscle and muscle control look at reggie bush he is looking jacked all of a sudden. All im saying is he has potential that we are waiting on seeing consistently. We have seen flashes n i think that is what Dan is talking about

I didn't think this was a English spelling class on this blog douchbag!!

Broncos must be retarded has to NJ!!! lol

Indiana, my bad you are not middled aged. You are 30 something lazy @zz on disabilty. Get off this blog

Typo- *has to be NJ!!!

Hey Bebo, what other blogs do you follow?

Indiana Dolfan,
Your spelling was passable, but even if it had been perfect, the order of the words made the sentence a garbled mess. Keep trying, though.

Bebo

the bottom line is get some real playmakers on both sides of the ball period !!!! this is clearly 1 of the least talented teams in the nfl. they're death to watch with that stupid"wildcat"offense. get 2 real recievers a real playmaking tight end on offense. and get some real playmaking lb's and ss on defense then come back to us dolphin fans.

jamillion
right on ,everyone talks about players speed and 40 times except ginns.
is there no way our oc and hc can get tgjr more success or is that it for a 23 yr old with 4.2 speed?
