The third QB? Might be Ronnie Brown

The Dolphins have but two quarterbacks -- Chad Henne and Tyler Thigpen -- on the active roster.

So what happens in a game, including Sunday's against the Cleveland Browns, if the unexpected happens and the Dolphins have to go to a third QB? (By the way, the unexpected happened already on Nov. 14 when starter Chad Pennington blew out his shoulder in the first series and then Chad Henne suffered a day-ending knee injury in the third quarter.)

Well, after they waived Patrick Ramsey this week, the Dolphins have been working on figuring out their options.

"We have a couple of different alternatives," coach Tony Sparano said today. "We've done some work out there on the practice field, so we'll so how it goes. Obviously one of the things would be if we only had the two guys, then Ronnie [Brown] would be involved in some of that."

That's a possibility. Brown is a running back by trade. He is not a quarterback. But he's played the part, even this year in that Tennessee game, when he took QB snaps out of the Wildcat package. One supposes if both Henne and Thigpen go down, Brown could close out the game in a pinch.

It's not optimal, but it is possible. Brown has one pass attempt this year.

Incomplete.

The Dolphins have former Denver QB Tom Brandstater on the practice squad. He's gotten some work in practice this week, mostly with the scout team. He is an option, but that would mean the Dolphins must sign him to the active roster by Saturday.

At least he would be more of a passing threat. That's in case, you know, the Dolphins need to throw the football.

Brown's been our third QB all year.

Marshall showed a decent arm out there

Well, if it turns out Ronnie Brown plays Quarterback, then I'd say we have the perfect offensive coordinator!

Run Ronnie RUN!!!!

Side Note: Someone on the last blog said something to the effect of "I'm glad we don't have the idiots they have at SS and NJ being gone is a good thing"?

I beg to differ....

I would trade nearly all of you for Jersey, NYScott, Tinshaker, or some of the old vets...

There's maybe 5 people that blog here with any sense and a couple that are funny

MarK, kris, (Sometimes DB) and a couple others actually have something worth while to say

DC writes novels

Nat Dods, Soiled, and (SOMETIMEs Odin) are hilarious

ALOCO
HOME
CUBAN
Carlito
and every variation of the above could all burn to death and it would be pleasant

That's my take

I THINK THIS R.BROWN THING IS JUST FOR THE MEDIA TO CHEW ON ,

MARC, I AM NOT A DRUG ABUSER LIKE YOU R AND YOU ADMIT IT.

YOU R VERY DIRTY GUY .

NOW TO BE OR NOT TO BE

FROM NOW ON I WILL CALL YOU ,,,,STEROID MARC

ALOCO, seriosly GO AWAY...

You type is all caps and can't form a proper sentence...It's also apparent that you blog with yourself with multiple names, talk about meatball subs...

You're a nuisance, and I won't address you again, so your rebuttal is moot...F@G!

STEROID MARC ,

i am happy you didn't include me of the people you like .

well lets hope it doesn't come down to that but at least we would run the ball more, I would like to see them try to pass out of the wildcat some, it would be tough to defend if we could do it

Thanks Marc,

Even with the parenthetical: SOMETIMES.

I feel absolutely honored to be included in the same sentence as a guy named Soiled Bottoms...........I think????

Lets just hope henning doesn't bring out the wildthig this weekend. Only use thigpen if henne gets injured Mr OC.

Just to be fair, if Henne and Thiggy go down, I think Dan Henning should have to take the remainder of snaps.....from up under center too!

Talk about an execution!

between that rope Marshall threw to the sideline vs Tenn and the bomb out of the wildcat, i'd say Marshall could be the #3...lol just kidding.... have a great winning weekend Phin Phans!

Cleveland's CB's are 5-10 and the safeties 5-11.

I want to see Marshall and Wallace just tearing em up on the outside!

As long as our D stays on the assignments Willis won't be a factor.

AT HOME WITGH MARGIE SELLING LAMP SHADES ON MSNBC .

Odin, will Wallace be active or Moore? With Marshall back, one of them is going to be inactive again.


Nat Dods, Soiled, and (SOMETIMEs Odin) are hilarious

ALOCO
HOME
CUBAN
Carlito
and every variation of the above could all burn to death and it would be pleasant

That's my take

Marc/Marcia, I see your sex change operation has been painful for you, But the good news is there's a Fall sale at Victoria secret, Enjoy big lug....

Oh BTW Marc/Marcia, I didnt post anything about you but you need to post about me, I was willing to let sleeping dogs sleep, But I guess you just could'nt, It's on my Dress wearing,Hermaphrodite lil Idiot... Oh it's on...LOL, Should be fun....

Joe Scmoe,

With that beautiful 57 yard Touch Down by Moore everyone thinks he'll be active.

I'm thinking it will be Wallace because of the height advantage.

Ultimately, I won't be disappointed either way.

JOE Scmoe ,

marshall and wallace will be active on sunday .

both will be active

Marshall and moore both will be active

Marc/Marcia, Tell us about the first time you wore a dress. Was'nt it a bet that you lost???, You felt so comfortable in it you decided to wear one ever day right???, It's OK Marcia,I have a cousin like that....(BTW, I hear you have a Fetish for "Pumps", True????

I think they should all be active. Wallace and Moore can both play special teams. I think we need to start expanding the offense. Start putting 4 WR's out there and putting Fasano on the bench. Would help open things up assuming the line holds up in protection.

cuban, i didn't say any thing to STEROID MARC and he came to blast me which i am since it's coming from him .

Well Aloco, What can you say, This Gal is a little crazy with all the male parts being removed, what can you do, By the way, Any hint on the next UM coach??????

Aloco, You forgot to add Marc/Marcia is out too with a Yeast infection....

Joe Scmoe,

The problem our offense has had in the red zone isn't because of Henne, Marshall or any of the receivers.

Henning gets to the red zone and he goes to max protection almost 90% of the time this season.

Henning acts like he doesn't realize that if we spread the offense in the red zone the defense has to respect it.

If they blitz our spread we hit the hot read.

The way we've been playing in the red zone hasn't been working. Time to open it up a little and put some trust in Henne.

Marc is street trash that feeds off hookers and addicts, only the hookers and addicts have more class and character than he does.

I guess we can see Channing(Geico caveman)Crowder back on the stationary bike for the rest of the season..., Which is good, Tour-De-France is in february is'nt it???

Lee’s nominee, Kim Kwan-jin, told a parliamentary confirmation hearing that North Korean aggression will result in airstrikes. He said South Korea will use all its combat capabilities to retaliate.

β€œIn case the enemy attacks our territory and people again, we will thoroughly retaliate to ensure that the enemy cannot provoke again,” Kim said.

Cuban Menace,

No you didn't!!!!

ROTFLMAO!!!!

Odin, Oh Yes I DID................

That's soft. Even a yeast infection hasn't kept Tom Brady or Mark Sanchez out of a game

All those Korean leaders, North and South sound like Home.

They love to TALK about it, they're just to "SCARED" to BE about it!

A punk is a punk, they're all the same.

Odin, This is a guy/girl that when I was rehabbing a gunshot wound(While on duty) he wished that the guy was a better shot.......Guy/girl is a piece of manure....IMHO..

250 lb RB Hillis will gain 160 yards against Miami.
Miami 1-5 at home.

Cribbs will destroy Miami at home on special teams.

I got nothing?

PPppttt!

Doggone dolphins suck!

screw the Dolphins!

Home,

Willis will be lucky to break 60 and Cribbs will be lucky to not get broke.....in half!

Marc,

Thanks for the shout-out....We can all make this blog the best FIN site on the NET....

When Armando blows up we can all say "we knew him when....."

I hope he hasn't reached his potential yet, although I have heard rumors that he has the perfect face for radio...we'll see

STEROID MARC loves to talk hookers,drugs and wishing cuban the worst .he's a nice pig .

Mark, funny on the last blog (about us making the Playoffs over NYJ).

But, my choice for Miami Dolphins Player of the Year.....PATRICK TURNER!

Turner had a collision with Jim Leohnard (Jets safety) and Leohnard broke his leg. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

THERE YOU GO PAT! Good work. His body may be in New York, but his soul is still in Miami. GOOD BOY!

Tony Sporano....this one is a no-brainer....get in the "O"-lines but and tell them to PROTECT the QB.....If Vernon Carey gives one of those half-A S S efforst as he's know to do then YOU need to get all in his butt, like you did with Henne.

Expect perfection (allow excellence) and DEMAND 100% effort and except nothing less. This is the second time in 2 seasons that we have had to play our 3rd string QB....this just in man....that looks bad one YOU.

Keep your QB upright and lets get this win...7-5, and lets see which team wants to help us get in

DC,

When did Turner break Leonards leg.

Did he only break one?

WelP! Homes is right again! Turner is an all pro in my book!

Jets have a murderous last 5 games, Since they barely beat the lions,browns(Overtime games) I could see them dropping the rest of there games and showing the world what frauds they are.....IMHO.

DC,

Saw your post on the last blog...I got to admit....you have been one of the Jekyl and Hyde fans....When you are on board you have some truly motivating post......when your off the wagon....well, then not-so-much.

Its hard being a FIN FAN because they always seem to break your heart when you need them the most.

Luckily for us I don't believe the FINS have another big game until they are 8-5 and face the jets. My feeling is that the coaches and players arn't feeling any pressure either.

We'll see what we are mad of in 3 weeks, thats ALL of us...coaches players, and FANS

When we beat Cleveland we will have equaled last years win total!

AwRiiiiiight MIAMI!!!!

WelP! Homes is right again! Turner is an all pro in my book!


Odin....classic......Got any about Sean Smith....why just stick the dagger in....twist it a bit

JIM LENOHARDS HAD A SEVER SHIN INJURY IN PRACTICE TODAY WITH EX DOLPHIN PAT TURNER...A BIG LOSS FOR JETS ..OUT FOR THE SEASON

"New York Jets safety Jim Leonhard has suffered what coach Rex Ryan calls a "severe shin injury" and will not play in the team's game at New England (9-2) on Monday night".

"Leonhard was injured Friday during team drills β€” which are closed to the media β€” and had to be carted from the field. Ryan says he is unsure how long Leonhard, who calls the defensive signals in the secondary, will be sidelined. Ryan calls the injury a "huge blow to us."

"Leonhard was hurt when he collided with wide receiver Patrick Turner. Eric Smith will be the primary replacement".

"Leonhard also returns punts, and that duty may fall to Kyle Wilson, Jerricho Cotchery or Santonio Holmes for the Jets (9-2)".

SEAN SMITH WILL STAY AT CB ON SUNDAY AND RESHED JONES WILL PLAY SINCE HARRIS IS OUT .ALSO MARSHALL AND MOORE BOTH WILL BE ACTIVE .

Marc I know I don't write a lot but when I do I would like to think its realistic and interesting and I've been coming here for long enough to be considered a vet don't you think?
By the way, Ronnie hopefully won't have to play the QB role because if he does then it's probably gonna be the most fun/depressing thing we have witnessed as fans the last 2 years. (I was going for ever but then i remember 2007...)

Finally, Patrick Turner has showed up>>>>>..LMAO..
