Vacation time is here for Dolphins in Depth

The Dolphins have an open OTA session Tuesday (June 1) and again on June 9.

I will miss them. I'll be on vacation until a few weeks before training camp. That's in July.

For the latest Dolphins coverage you should come to the Herald's Dolphins pages and sports pages. If I get something I absolutely have to share with you, I'll have it for you here. But that will be the exception rather than the rule.

We've done this every summer for a couple of years now so I'm sure you will survive the dry period.

We'll get back at it in July for what promises to be a very eventful 2010 season.

Oh, one more thing before I go:

As you know I've been sort of beating the drums about the Dolphins versus Jets rivalry the past few weeks. The other day I tweeted that Tony Sparano had lost 30 pounds this offseason and had done it through hard work and not using a lap band.

Profootballtalk.com ran with the comment, suggesting I was taking an enormous swipe at Rex Ryan, and now Jets fans are aflutter that I disrespected the New York coach. I can deal with that. I think Rex Ryan is an adult. He's made some life decisions and should be ready and probably is ready to deal with the scrutiny those decisions bring.

But Jets fans are starting to bug me. I always wondered why Dolphins fans and Jets fans always seemed to get into fights at games. I think I get it now. Some of those folks are annoying.

Some of that annoying point of view can be found right here on a Jets blog. I encourage you to go to that blog and give those folks your view how the Dolphins match up with their team, how Tony Sparano matches up with Rex Ryan, how this blog matches up with that one.

Be respectful, please. But make your voices heard.

And share in the comments section here what you told those people over there.

Have a great summer.

Still limping, He'll be ready for the season, Look for 90 Receptions for 1200 yards and 12 TDs this year Lil Aloco, By the way how was Mama Maria's home coming?????

Menace , what the deal on atogwe ?? You think miami wull get him ??

Carlo, Not a chance, Lets be thankful for Dansby and Marshall, I mean Jeffery(Hollywood)Ross has Money, But lets not be Greedy...........

NJ Phin, Just commented on the SS that we are having a live Blog, Lets welcome the fine people from the Sentinel.......

CoCo,Anything will be better then Pasgulano led Defense, Also you subtract Joey(IQ the size of a shoe)Porter,Gibril(Why, mom Why did you name me Girbril)Wilson, And you already upgraded that defense, Lets not forget the collapse of that "D" the last 3 games, That's all about Leadership, and there was none............

Menace , who's the man in your relationship ? ?? You or your husband ??

Armando...ur another dollf ag shill. Jet fans hate dolphin fans b/c they have no knowledge and are fair weather fans. Case in point....The Monday Night Miracle....my cell is ringing off the hook and I am getting bashed one phone call after another as the guppies are seemingly pummeling the Jets. Rude stuff too....just alot of non football stuff from supposed friends, I kept answering and taking it cuz I'm a man. Low and behold the tables obviously turned and the Jets won in a thrilling classic of a game. Nary a Dolphin fan to be found....not one cowardice mofo drilling me for 2 1/2 hrs picked up their phone. Not one !!!! Examples like that are why i HATE ur team, ur fans, ur town, ur sportswriters. We will kill you this year and I can't wait....just so you shut the f up.

what the chances the jets will crash this year with jason on board ?

Carlo, I have no "MAN" in my relationship, Though Iam sure you have 2 or 3 special guys in yours(not that there's anything wrong with that) I'd have to say if there's a special guy in my life I'd have to say Jesus Christ my lord and Savior..... Who's yours???????

Amen, Cuban.

what the chances the jets will crash this year with jason on board ?

Also too, Don't want to be on that Plane ride, Final Destination..........

Great post Sam. Way to bash Dolphins fans for not having any football knowledge then follow up with a post that has not one bit of actual football knowledge in the post except for β€œthe Jets won in a thrilling classic of a game”

How’z this you a s s clown?

Dolphins have beaten the Jest 3 times in a row and have shown they can get it done against your team of blowhards while you guys just shoot off hot air.

We beat you to get into the playoffs in 2008 with sound defense and timely plays.

We beat you game 1 of 2009 with overpowering offense that pushed your defense all over the field.

We beat you in game 2 of 2009 with solid defense and terrific special teams.

Moral of the story:

Dolphins find a way to get it done against the Jest while you guys find a way to NOT get it done against us. Can’t wait to whip you again in 2010 Samo!!!

Hey Cuban any thougs about the unrestricted rookie free agents?

Yo Adrian,What can be said, There Free............

Cuban, it's going to be funny when NJ PHinfart comes crawling back here during the season for live blogs and he has to face Mando. I hope Mando bans him.

flpd, we SHOULDN'T BAN ANY ONE EVEN NJ PHIN .THIS BLOG IS GREAT THAT WAY BUT OF COURSE ARMANDO HAS THE FINAL SAY .

FLPD, wont happen, No matter how much Mando(Sacs)Hates NJ, if he has'nt banned "Home" he wont ban NJ, At least NJ has good posts......He may be obnoxious but I even like some of his posts........

AGREE CUBAN ON NJ PHIN .

Aloco, Thank god you agree, By the By, What did you do for your girlfriend return home??????

This idea of live blog is cool, may be later in the evening live blog with Waterboy, tomorrow morning with Carlito, then with Rob in OC, then with ALoco, Bobby and Bootang and so on...

YES, ADRIAN YOU MIGHT BE ON SOME THING HERE .

And when is Home turn for a live blog, the title will change to: live blog against Home. And that will be just one minute before the new blog from Armando

OK guys prediction For Chad(Neck fat)henne this year with the addition of Brandon Marshall and the Subtraction of Ted(Hit and Drop)Or( Hit and fall down)or(No testicular Fortitude)or(Ted and the family Ginn))or(Drop it like its Hot)or (I fell down)Ginn ???????

My prediction (with Brandom, without Ginn) is 10 points more in each game.

32.5 points a game for the Dolphins this year? I think that is a little bit optimistic considering that is more than the Saints scored per game last year but I would love that.

Agree Adrian,And Mr.Barkley, my thinkng is Plus 5 for not having "No Nuts" on the field, killing drives ands having Mr. NUTs making plays../. The Menace will even say Plus 11 points more per game(AKA 33.5 pts per game)

Cuban Menace,

While I might have been guilty of somethings the other night, I wasn't the one calling you the mange.

Just wanted you to know.

lol, well I can certainly see the logic. I'm tending towards giving us 8 pts a game by removing Ted "fetal position" Ginn from the field.

If we can generate that much offense then we will definitely be SB contenders.

You are rigth, Barles may be just seven points. I have in my mind the seven points Ginn drop in the end zone in the Dolphins-Colts game plus the factor to keep the defense honest plus the factor of the influence of a very good WR among the others WR, another 3 points.

One thing is certain guys. Our offense is going to be dynamic and very difficult to stop this year. I could see us as a top 5 scoring offense this year if things play out right.

Odin, My "NORSE" Friend, Read your post yesterday,Hope everythings cool with you and your old Ladie, hoping to see you for "Pilfering" on Dec 12 up here in the North east........

i may add that dolphins will certainly add at least 8 points , ted ginn was a disaster last year in at least 3 games .

Don't underestimate the Ginn factor.

The guy was a drive killer.

He rarely got open and when he did he dropped the ball.

Just by removing Ginn we should easily get 7 more a game not even counting the Marshall Factor!

Jets suck, You are correct that Ginn was a disaster for 3 games may I also add that the Defense was even wore in 5 games, 3 being the last 3 games when the playoff push should have been happening..........Hopefully this wont happen this year.........

odinSEYE.


WHEN YOU WRITE A POST YOU ALWAYS ADD SOME THING .

( just by removing ginn we should easily get 7 more a game NOT EVEN COUNTING THE MARSHALL FACTOR ) .


BY,ODIN

Cuban,

No more Old Lady.

I went on a very memorable memorial weekend rampage.

My two favorites wanted to act stupid and not have a good time. After the right combination of Bourban and Buds, I went straight into scoorched earth policy.

The State Police and Sheriffs dept put a temporary halt to the festivities.

Agree Odin, With out ted(The Drive killer)Ginn we score more points....(But w/out ted, What will become of the Ginn Clan????)

cuban,BP IS DOWN 12 PERCENT TODAY,NICE .

Menace,

Damn I hope I didn't miss the live blog. My question pertains to Tyler Thigpen. In one of his press conferences, Sparano stated he reminded him a little bit of...Tony Romo. Now, before I ask my question, playoff wins or not, IMO Romo is a top 7 or 8 QB. I think coach was making reference to extending plays, making something out of nothing, and the ability to throw from any release point. While I think Romo is much more polished and accurate as a passer, Thigpen is more athletic. My question is what are your thoughts on Thigpen? My opinion is if placed in an offense suited to his skills, he could be a really good QB in this league.

Marvez of Fox Sports blasted us for being the new bad boys of the NFL.

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/philip-merling-miami-dolphins-home-to-nfl-bad-boys-060110

Odin, havent you learned by now that the "Scorched Earth"and the "Scorcched Muff" Policy just Doesnt work??????A Just remember my friend, If it wasnt for that Furry Triangle of softness, We'd be hunting Women.... IMOH...........

Boot, I see Tyler as being a Raw and polishable QB, He'll be playing in the NFL somewhere, But with Henne here, I think He'll end up somewhere else unfortunately, I gotta believe it might be New England............

Alex Marvez sounds like a reactionist cry baby.

Awww, him upset because Sporano didn't send Merling home.

Alex Marvez, STFU! We have laws in this country you communist sounding dork. It's called due process you F A G!
Speaking of F A G S don't worry, Goodell's hipocrite a s s will weigh in on this.

Until then we're paying Merling big money to play ball.

If the Dolphins are the new Bad Boys of the NFL, then sissy boys like you should stay out of Miami.

Cuban:

I hope not New England.

But...
If they can develop this guy, he'll be a super trade (in the future) to help the Dolphins fill a need.


PS.
- "Scorched Muff" is hilarious!
.
.

LOL, well said viking.

Ok Guys only got a few more minutes to spare,, But another 'LIVE: blog happening tommarrow at 6 PM for the menace, So shoot to "Qs" now.....

Sam, do you work as a maid for Weston Jet fan?You sure sound like it.

Menace: Question, after I eat mexican food, I have stomach pains and I hear sounds come out of my behind, is this normal ?

Tipper, don't leave me, the world is ending, well in a billion years or so but we need to worry now !

Here is a really good story from PFD. Suposedly Davone Bess was giving a phone interview today, and had to cut it short because he witnessed an accident. A truck swirved, then flipped over. Bess cut short the interview, called 911, and went to the scene to assist the driver of the accident. The driver ended up being ok. Nice work by Bess!

BESS IS THE MAN IF IT'S TRUE AND IF IT'S NOT TRUE HE'S NOT THE MAN .

Sure, nice work Bess.

Way to ruin the new Bad Boys image we've been so carefully cultivating.

BESS HAS A GOOD HEART, IF THAT WAS TED GINN HE WOULD LET THE DRIVER BURN .

Amando I'm going to eat you!

Get in my belly!

Soooooo hungry.
