ยซ Thursday roundup from Miami Dolphins | Main | Crowder out vs. Bills, probably vs. Vikes, too ยป

... And once again, no Crowder at practice

The Dolphins final full practice before leaving to Buffalo? Routine for the most part.

On Friday the Dolphins put the finishing touches on their prep work for the Bills and, once again, inside linebacker Channing Crowder (groin) did not participate. As I told you yesterday on this blog, it just does not seem plausible for Crowder to play in the regular season opener.

[UPDATE: Crowder is listed as questionable on Friday's injury report. Jake Long (knee) is listed as probable after practicing all week, even if on a limited basis. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as probable. Marshall practiced fully on Thursday and Friday.]

I don't believe Crowder will even make the trip. I bet you hear reports of the Dolphins leaving him home by this time Saturday.

As for how he's looking, don't believe me. Believe your eyes from this video, courtesy Jeff Darlington's Miami Minute upload:

The Bills, by the way, are having linebacker issues of their own. Reggie Torbor was declared out for this game. So was Antonio Coleman. They also placed Kawika Mitchell on injured reserve on Thursday. The Bills are expected to go into Sunday's game with only three linebackers.

That's usually bad news for a 3-4 defense that needs four linebackers to just be on the field. I remind you, however, that the Bills used a 4-3 look in their final preseason game.

One more thing: Akin Ayodele, who was signed Thursday will not be active for the game, according to head coach Chan Gailey.

Aloco,

I don't know who they are, but I'm pretty sure I seen them on the Grassy Knoll a long time ago.

I think they're working for Belicheat now.

I don't know why people always say crowder sucks,and should be released,when he's pretty good,but if you have to play next to akin ayodele ofcourse you're not gonna look so good,but when dansby next to him,I think he's gonna have a career year,hopefully he's better by next week when we go up against AP,I think we're gonna need him,he's a good run stuffer,

Prediction:


Refs blow 2 calls in favor of Bills.

Prediciton,


MOORE...........TD
DAVIS.......... INTERCEPTION
WAKE.............. tackle

I meant not look so good

I meant not look so good

Another one for the Clamming Chowder Fan Club

OK Got Enrique on for a 34 to 10 win for the mighty air breathers, got H2Oboy fins 24 to 14, anyone else want to Chime in??????

Miami 20 Bills 10

We say what we say about Crowder cuz he deserves it. He got a fat check to play for this team, but he hasn't come close to playing up to his contract. For example, a "break-out" year for him would mean, 2 picks ,a sack, and 100 tackles. That's average for a ILB in the NFL.

Miami 27 Bills 21

Lebron! It's great to see you honor us with your presence!

I find it interesting how you guys say you love the Dolphins but are hating so much on some of their players.

Deuches!

Calm down people. Lets see what we got after week 1!

I thought we were all friends here?? lol

3:50 PMJamil YacamanI thought you were the O to my Bama
The Ricky to my Ronnie
The Chad to my Henne
The Long to my Jake


I thought you were the Tuna to the Bill?
The St. Patrick's Turner/White day to my Ireland
The Ricky to my Ronnie
The Chad to my Henne
The Long to my Jake
The Bernie to my Parmalee

Hahahahaha

Feed Marshall. Run the Ball. Get to Trent. Create Turnovers. Minimize Mistakes. Build Chemistry.

Lets do it!~!

CUBAN, YOU TELL YOUR FATHER EVERY THING ,so he goes to attack the other man who pulls a rusty pipe from his coat and try to attack your father in law when you shoot few bullets in the air and the other man drops his rusty pipe and flee the scene and we will never see him again.
you go back home w/beautiful wife save and sound .

then your wife said to you ;((( love doesn't need money or gold or silver ,it only needs two hearts your and mine )))..........the end

: Omar Kooky and Mike Brerepenisface...

Who is your daddy and what does he do???

I predict Fins score 20 unanswered points.
Scrubs to play in 4th qtr garbage time.

Cuban,

What is the prize for accurate predictions?

At least he avoided posting a new BLOG! :-)
Great work Mando!

Why do we bash Crowder?
You call it bashing, I call it truth. The numbers don't lie. Google it and compare them to anyone.

You guys saying he looked bad because of Ayodele and he will look good next to Dansby, give it a rest.

1. Anybody looks better playing next to Dansby.

2. I want a guy that looks AND plays well whether Dansby is next to him or on vacation in Tahiti.

3. Crowder aint "that guy".

It's simple, I just want the guys in there that give us the best chance to win. Dobbins and Dansby are "those guys".

((((((( the team who scores more points wins )))))) ,,,,,who said that quote ?

well yeah chowder did get paid,because he was our best linebacker and we couldn't let him walk (now he's not our best because of dansby) but he's 2nd best on our team,and he has problems in coverage because that's not what he do,he's a run stuffer,and im sure with dansby next to him he's gonna become a playermaker we all hoped he would

Aloco,(Sniff,Sniff), A great story my friend.....

Clamming is so good, he dont need 4 weeks of practice. He just shows up and plays lights out.

Cuban,

What is the prize for accurate predictions?

A Tape of Channing(Injured reserve)Crowders greatest moments on the exercise bike.....

How about a 2 hr loop at his 1 int from last year and his rag doll hair pulling against NE?

The would get us more pumped....

You guys ready for the Cubans prediction???

thanks ( sniff,sniff ) cuban .

Predicticate away man

Date with Hot Ashley? Cmon Cuban need incentive. Miami 31 Buffalo 17

Pat White and Pat Turner both catch on with the NY wets?

They almost made it too Canada. Too bad, they should have kept going, they'd be on a better team.

wetsucks

Odinseye, Jests already cut Turner. You see how desperate they are picking up our garbage to try to get info?? Neither Patty cakes know WTF is going on so have at it

I hate to say it but I see it 21 to 16 a fin defeat, I see Sean(Toast)Smith getting burnt for at least 1 long ball, and being called for a interference call late in the 1st half resulting in Buff. Taking a 21 to 6 halftime lead, I also see miami moving the ball but only scoring 1 TD and 3 FGs, I also see Tony giving 3 fist pumps for the 3 FGs,Chad(Fat neck)Henne will be 22 out of 35 3 ints for 265 yards, He's gonna be slinging the ball after Miami falls behind Buffalo 21 to 6 at half time.......

The Rundown thus far:

Me:34-10
Waterboy:24-14
Mr. Headband:20-10
Hennething:27-21
Bobbyd12:31-17

Cuban???

Henne, Kolb, or McNabb

Who should i start on my fantasy team this week?

Come on Cuban.... Dont be a 2 watt!

Bobby, I'll pass it be Ashley.But be forewarned of her if she starts drinking Tequila with Jagermeister.....

Cuban, ur GF dump you or didnt give u any?? Cmon bro, Miami loss?? killing me here

Waterboy is on point like always.

I'll go slightly over

Fins win
27-14

Tequila and Jager??? yea i be afraid she throw up on me!!! damn thats potent

Start Henne! I am. McNabb doesn't look like he's used to the new system and Kolb will get killed by the Falcons D. But then again, you never, it is week one!

Going to be 24-21 for the 'Phins in a tight one this weekend, guys. We're going to come out of this game and still not know exactly what we have. But I have to say, I'm excited about the 'Phins playing the Vikings next weekend. Favre and the offence looked putrid last night. They don't scare me at all.

The Rundown thus far:

Me: 34-10
Waterboy: 24-14
Mr. Headband: 20-10
Hennething: 27-21
Bobbyd12: 31-17
Jamillion: 27-14

Cuban: Well I'm gonna tell you to reconsider,lol.

Bobby, Yeah it's both Frightening and funny at the same time.......

fins....123

fins....123
buffalo..6

Aloco,Put down the glue gun.......

Cuban, one word...ouch! lol.. You'll be proven wrong my man and then your gf will give you the tequila and jager to help you forget.

but he's 2nd best on our team,

Crowder ain't even 3rd best on our team. Micah's already better than he is, right here, right now, TODAY!


and he has problems in coverage because that's not what he do,

In coverage, in gap responsibility, in tackling...................
He has problems with holding his own too, that patsy whooped his a s s pretty good.

he's a run stuffer,and im sure with dansby next to him he's gonna become a playermaker we all hoped he would

He's not a stuffer, he's always a day late and a dollar short. When he finally gets lucky and ends up in the right hole, he misses the tackle.

With Dansby next too him, with Dansby next to him, blah blah blah.............Dobbins and Micah Johnson looks better regardless of who is next to them.
