Quickie notes from morning minicamp practice

The Miami Dolphins just finished their first minicamp practice.

The housekeeping first: Restricted free agents Ronnie Brown and Anthony Fasano were present although they have not signed their tender. Brown, by the way, said he would eventually sign the tender. He also said he has not been offered a long-term contract by the Dolphins.

Patrick Turner, Brandon Marshall (hip), Lionel Dotson, Nate Garner (foot/toe), and Jason Ferguson (quad) were not practicing as they are all continuing to treat injuries. The new one of those is Dotson, who did participate in OTAs but sat out this morning. It is still unclear what injury exactly Turner is nursing.

Inside linebacker Channing Crowder, who missed the last OTA session as he continues to recover from foot surgery, was on the field today. Good news there.

Phillip Merling, who was arrested for aggravated domestic battery Wednesday, was at practice today but did not speak with any reporters today.

Now the more interesting (to me) news: Rookie Koa Misi worked with the first-team defense today. He was at the weakside outside linebacker spot. It was interesting to see Misi match up with Jake Long on one play during team drills. Um, Long won the battle blocking him one-on-one.

Left guard John Jerry, a third-round pick, also worked with the first-team offensive line this practice.

It was a good practice for Chris Clemons in that he came up with an interception of Chad Henne on a pass intended for John Nalbone but somewhat overthrown.

It was not a great practice for Nalbone. He dropped at least one pass that I though aside from not really making a great effort for the Henne pass that was picked off.

Second-team quarterback Tyler Thigpen was erratic. He overthrew a potential TD in the back corner of the end zone and was also late on the throw. But he followed that with a nice TD pass to Fasano.

By the way, Sean Smith spent a good bit of time talking about his offseason and so forth. The topic of his ZERO interceptions last year came up. Smith is apparently confident that number will change:

"I guarantee it will not be that number this year," Smith said. "That's for sure."

Finally, want to give some props to reserve running back Kory Sheets. He's locked in a tough battle for a roster spot. But in this practice he looked very quick and decisive in his runs.

[Check back as Tony Sparano will speak at 1:45 and I will update as necessary.]

Mando, you really need to do something about all this garbage and spamming crap that's going on with this blog! You are losing fans fast due to these idiots! I suggest you turn their IP addresses over to the FCC for possible criminal prosecution. I'm sure there are laws that they are breaking. If nothing else, identity theft and fraud. Suggest you talk to your legal department. This garbage WILL affect your blog and your papers circulation. If you value your job, I suggest you DO something! I love the Dolphins and your blog when it's normal. But, if this is the way things are going to be, I see no reason to continue to even bother with you or the Herald. I intended to stop my subscription and urge others to do the same unless this crap is stopped! No other football team has blogs that cater to sickos and whackos so why should yours?

Does anyone think that we will see kory sheets in the wildcat this season? perhaps a new wildcat triple back formation? methinks it would be an interesting idea.

Tracy474 LOL @ U, You say these fools are breaking laws regarding identity theft. You sir are a f'kin buffoon!

Thank You Tracy 474, I'am sure mando Will get on this ASAP(LOL) Thanks for stopping by........ LOL................

finfan/NYAhole,willy chirino

You guys are kinda right. Home I agree has to go. But if you use the same rational, then aloco would go too. Both spew out lots of posts. Except some are attached to aloco, why him and not home. People are not used to strange new things. Home is a strange new thing. Aloco is an old strange thing that many got used to.

Still here Cuban? Heard from Po lately?

It does seem like some of the regulars haven't been around in a while.



show us them boobies!

"He also said he has not been offered a long-term contract by the Dolphins."

You gotta wonder about a franchise's front office that resigns players who can't complete a single season without getting injured. I guess we learned nothing from Justin Smiley.

We're never winning another Super Bowl.

OMG, SAPO, Posted the same thing at the same time, SEEK PSyCHIATRIC help... Also to Tracy, Go to the "SUN SENTINAL", Great gay Blog there, you can kill 2 birds with one stone... You Go Girl...........

Some people on here are behaving worse than jets fans...

real cuban then who posted at 9:48pm?????



I smell Nj in the house. It stinks of feta cheese and baklava

I cannot get my mind wrapped around what has happened to this blog. At one point I really looked forward to logging onto here and having some good conversations with Dolphins fans ans sometimes just some local South Florida people talking about our teams.
I am not going to pull some "better then thou" shiznit, but, DAMN!
It is a good thing there are a few people left here, If you are lucky enough to sign on when they are here also to enjoy talking with. But I can remember 40 or 50 consistent contributors.
Did they get run off by those who are convinced their own thought are all that matter? Did the Lunatic who has already been banned from one site after bringing it to the point of collapse get "It's" fingers in deep enough to create havoc, anarchy and an argumentative atmosphere on this blog also? Did "IT" get a few "Nothing else better to do" Minions to sit in awe of the BS "IT" bloviate's about it's self, one post after the next as if "IT" has nothing better to do for an ENTIRE DAY! to help destroy this blog also?

"IT" will attack with stolen ID's if you say a word. "IT" has already caused well over half of the quality contributors to leave this site. "GOOD" some may say... "Go on to where ever you want to go"... Other may say.

Really? Is that REALLY how this blog is going to have quality content? By only having the same 7 to 10 people going on and on with each other until they finally find a reason to get pissed themselves and leave? All while "IT"..... "Sits back and watches it all burn"... just like a complete sociopath personality love so much to do.

If you don't know what "IT" is... IT is a Sociopath. IT has no relationships of meaning or value. IT feels no regret or remorse. IT just enjoys the anarchy of what IT can stir up and once IT does ITS job... "IT watches it all fall apart and burn"

I am here less then 2 or 3 times a week and used to be a daily contributor. There are MANY just like me who cannot for the life of ourselves understand why it has been impossible to rid ourselves of the true problem. The SS finnally did. And that blog is in recovery now. Has a LONG WAY TO GO. IT really did a job there also.

Just saying... How long?... Is "IT" really that Funny or interesting to read. Does "IT" really contribute any solid Dolphins information or just say enough to keep minions interested? IT... will destroy what is left by the time the season starts. And that will really suck for those of us who love coming here after games.

But Hey... Not to worry as long as we have ...."IT"....

cuban I was right. say it

Well apparently there's another way to Siugn in your name i blue, a Loser at (9;48 has also figured out how to be a Loser... It's OK .....

nosce te ipsum,

You forgot to mention that "IT" was the name of that killer clown in the movie IT.

sapo was correct cuban, Home can also get faked in blue just like you.

Was that me posting @ 9;59??????? Iam out...................

cuban, say it i am your daddy .

my mama loves to go out w/cuban .


Will the REAL Cuban Menace PLEASE stand UP!!!!
