This is the quick reaction post from today's scrimmage at Dolphins camp.

I know but I think Comcast is starting to offer it... So I just need to order it!

White didn't do so bad with his limited snaps.

Let's see if they give him and Thigpen equal snaps during the pre-season.

CBS Sports news stated:

8/6 - QB Pat White had a nice Friday morning practice, throwing tight spirals and having his passes hit the intended target. White finished Thursday’s practice strong, too. He’s battling Tyler Thigpen and Chad Pennington for the backup job; Thigpen is thought to be leading.
8/5 - QB Pat White had a strong session to end practice Thursday that included throwing a TD pass with nice touch and keeping on an option for a TD. Nevertheless, White remains a disappointment in the eyes of fans.

It seems that White is starting to pick up his game. We'll know soon enough.

Grrreatdane- Whats up! I don't know of any free agents, or a team -player that we could aquire as a return guy. I was trying to make the point that it is better to have this happen eraly in camp then towards the end. Take Cobbs out of the equation because we know what he can do. If none of the guys we currently have are able to cut the mustard. It wouldn't be out of the question to go find some one. I'm sure there are players out there that could fill this possible void that are not on a roster now, or not familiar with us in the blogosphere. Same with a player that might get cut from another team here down hte road. A lot of these return guys are specialists that nobody except those in charge of putting teams together has any knowledge of. Like I said Cobbs can do the job, we all know this. The others are still a question mark. I hope someone can step it up, if not these are some different options

Well, disappointed in the scrimmage. I was all excited about Marshall. I guess i am very happy our corners bounced back. What's with Marshall dropping the ball? But anyway, I guess overall I was happier in practice this week. Our defense will be great and I was excited to see what our offense could do. And, apparently, nothing.

Hey all!

Just came in to drop a few musings...

Pat White can only get better...no other way but up. Right now he is still bouyed by his 2nd round status but he better bring the flashes a lot more often in the Preseason. I hope he does better just to make things interesting.

Cam Wake will probably make a good IDP in FFL for sack heavy leagues. If he stays healthy he could easily be this years Dumervil.

I want to see all these live, exotic Nolan blitzes unleashed on foes...can't wait.

Nolan Carroll seems to be doing well and seems to have the change of direction suddeness to make a few big plays. Injury bug has to stay away.

Rex Ryan is still so fat that if goes to a Halloween party he can throw a white sheet over his head and go as Alaska.


I'LL be Happy with a guy that has sure hands and can go up the field for 20 to 25 yards with out running out of bounds(Ala Ted(Opps I Fell down)Ginn....

K thanks just was wondering if you knew something I didn't and agree with ya we know what Cobbs could lets see if we got something else!



Dear Rob in OC

People expect football analysis from you and fart jokes from me

I don't talk football...you dont't talk fart jokes.....got it !

Soiled :)

Rob in OC....WHAT UP!!!! Long time my friend.
All accounts say that Nolan Carrol has been straight ballin' this camp. This has been a pleasant suprise to me. I thought because of his limited amount of game time the last few years in college that he would have done well to make the practice squad. It sound like we have a player! Nice work FO.


Mr. Soiled Bottom. I need to know if you have given any thought at all to publishing your work! Christmas will be here soon, and I would like to have something for the Cuban Menace, Aloco, and all the others that would proudly display your musings in text.

It's Great to see Uncle Soileds posts whenever they appear, It makes my day........

I just got back from the scrimmage game;

I was very impressed with Nolan Carroll. He looks very talented and he has the speed to take it back. He broke up a few passes and almost had a pick.

Sean Smith broke up a nice pass intended for Marshall. The thing about Smith though, is that he seems to be too concerned about showing off in front of his fans. He needs to know that he's not in a dance competition but on a football field. When he starts doing this stuff in a game, then he can dance on the field.

Pat White looked like the best QB out there, believe it or not. I think he needs to be given a chance, seriously. His passes looked crisp, and he wasn't startled out there. He was making his reads, checking down, and throwing the ball accurately. He can play under center.

Reshad Jones also made a nice play today. He seems to play with swagger as well.

Joey Hanos made some nice plays out there too. He looked a heck of a lot faster today than he usually does. He can get open and has decent hands.


yes we signed him... (he wouldn't be in camp if we didn't! :)

Aloco, crowder looked good. I just wish he would make these plays during the season and stop running his mouth. He laid a vicious hit on a receiver, can't remember who it was. I didn't know they were allowed to hit this hard in a scrimmage game.

One thing I will say again; CARROLL is the real deal. No joke!

Dear Mr. Darrly Dunphy

Thanks for the kind words :)

Dear Mr. Salguero

Recently Soiled contacted 3rd persons disease from some posts left by a Mr. Home.

Home has laced his posts with a chemical compound which makes the reader become narcissistic and paranoid of Sean Smith.

Now Soiled isn't so sure about Sean Smith anymore :(

Can Armando help Soiled...Mr. Salguero ?

P.S. Somthing bad about NJ phinfan and the SS

I have some nice pictures, I wonder where I can post them. Any ideas?

David Martin caught a TD pass during 7 on 7 drills. He looks good and ready to go. I'm very excited about having him back.
He's the only TE with the speed and play making ability on our squad right now. I really don't know about Fasano guys.

Yes Soiled, It is truly shocking but not surprising that our "Friend" NJ fin fan has been Banned for life from the "SS", Look for his appearances here at the Herald as "Carlo Ponti" or something derogatory to yours truly.....By the way, Have you tried a Topical Cream for your disease that you contacted from Home???, I warned you about Reading around.....

tomorrow night we watch the football

The PB Post's Ben Volin posted that Pat White's pass to Moore was a 40 yd TD, not just a 15 yd completion as Armando has posted here. (Too bad it wasn't on a post pattern...)


You weren't impressed with ANYONE else but those guys? So you completely missed the fact that Charles Grant treated John Jerry like a turnstile a bunch of times by getting 2 sacks in FOUR PLAYS?! And then Pennington came in and Grant immediately had a qb rush and the very next play had a sack! That makes three sacks in limited playing time. How does that not impress you? He did it against the 1s 2s and 3s.

Carlito, Has NJ phin fan been banned for life At the SS??? Lmao over it, Is it true????


Wow, how utterly and painfully boring. Just when I thought this blog was unreadable, you take it to another, even more pathetic level, Mando. Kudos, man. If kudos were given to people for sucking as opposed to succeeding. Imagine if you had a radio show and people had to listen to your Tyson-voiced version of this blog? Oh, wait. Gah. Keep up the snoozerama.

- Bebo

Was'nt he Banned for life here too??????

Cuban Menace,
Who, me? I haven't said anything offensive. Just my opinion: that this blog blows and Mando is not very good at his job. I doubt I'm the only one, too.

- Bebo

AH-OHHHH, Sounds like LIL Bebo needs his nap.....

Cuban he may only be suspended like you were, for a few days. LOL

this blog is the best i read in my 12 years following the dolphins .

Cuban you still have not told me what kracken is???

Then you may want to practice reading more.

Mando means well, I'm sure, but the info provides is given with little context and his holier-than-thou tone makes it even harder to tolerate. I get more info from the news wire. You read a blog for insight into the process. Here, I just get filler and wheel-spinning. But hey, if that's your thing, more power to you. I guess.

- Bebo

Bebo, Sorry, You sound like "HOT ASHLEY" After I only gave it 3 minutes of my finest(And that's stretching it for 30 seconds) to her "NEEDS", But then again like Mando, Just as long as "I Am Satisfied" Is all that matters... True????

Cuban who is this ocala bob the fool was fighting with last night?

3 minutes cuban??? Three minutes of hard aerobic pounding!!!

Cuban Menace,
No idea who HOT ASHLEY is, and considering you only spent three minutes with her, you don't seem to know, either. But funny story!

- Bebo

Assasin, That's what the "TK8" are always saying over there at the SS, It's quite annoying actually, but it's how they greet every member of the TK8. I guess the equivalent would be a Handshake to normal people.......

Bebo , i hear you . for you to enjoy this blog you have to let it go .when you come here you should leave your dignity at the door and never get into a fight .in other words act like mr soiled bottom .

Cuban over at the SS there is this cool guy with a neat picture of a clown. He gets into it with your buddy.

Hey Mark,
Most of the time I just read the blog and try to glean any info of value, but on days like today, when it's clear Mando's phoning it in more than usual, it gets frustrating. That's all I'm trying to say.

- Bebo

ARMANDO IS OFF ON SUNDAY FROM HIS RADIO SHOW .HE SHOULD GET A LOT OF SLEEP .why i feel he's ignoring us and giving all his time to his wife and the radio .

FB,If You Have The iPone Or iPod You Can Post Them On There,that Is Of Course,If You Are A Member Of The Dolphins Football App.

Thanks Bebo, Assassin, Two in a half minutes of pounding........She is hot though, I'am shocked that I lasted 2 and half lol..... Again, Just as long as the man is Satisfied, Lets face it guys, if it was'nt for that "Patch of love" we'd be "hunting em"

Cuban who is this ocala bob the fool was fighting with last night?
