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.

(((((( I EXPECT TO BE AN ELITE PLAYER IN 3 YEARS AND I WISH I WOULD BE A MIAMI DOLPHIN)))) THESE ARE THE WORDS OF THE WR MARLONE MOORE A 20 MINUTES AGO

Shh Marc doesn't want you to speak.... only him and his bum bros. Marc from the center of the universe.

I think they should start Ronnie at qb. 10 wc in a row. Then go to Henne. That will break up Ronnie's rhythm. See how Ronnie feels about that!

NOW AFTER HEARING MOORE TALKING ABOUT THE BROWNS ,I AM SURE HE WILL START ON SUNDAY .

Aloco,

What did Moore say about the Browns?

PS: Nice updates lately, U Da Man!!!!

Loco, you yould be on to something with Moore...It would be nice to see some fresh blood on the field....hungry blood.

Not start....but definelty play

Dear Mr. Salguero

Guess where I was from 2 pm to 5 pm....at a job site...I know, right.

Although it was only 3 hours it felt good and it felt right...and when the old lady was ready to clock out at 5 pm I wasn't gonna be late picking her up this time.

I may not have been working at a job site but it sure felt good being at a job site again.

Just thought you should know


Soiled :)

ODIN,

(( we can't be get sucked in this trap game mentality of their record )))))


he speaks w/confidence ...btw MARSHALL COULD PLAY ON A LIMITED BASES .

Aloco,

There are no TRAP GAMES when your 6-5 and need to win out....Trap games are for ELITE teams...not for struggling teams

WE MUST WIN ON SUNDAY...THE BROWNS QB JAKE DELHOMME HAD 7 INT AND ONE TD ALL YEAR IN TWO STARTS ...ONE WIN AND ONE LOSS.

I was once trapped in a "Trap Date"......

KRIS ,HE MEANT NOT BE TRAPPED THINKING B/C OF THE BROWNS UGLY RECORD WE COULD WIN EASY .


TYRONE CULVER WE COULD SEE HIM A LOT ON SUNDAY OVER RESHED JONES AND NOLAN CARROL ....DC SAID

Mr. Soiled Bottoms,

I don't mean to interfere in a man's business, but I find myself seriously concerned.

Have you ever heard the old saying about hanging out in Barber shops?

I'm not sure how it goes, so just be careful!

Odin, You do know that Barber shops are now the main source of drug distribution???? At least in NYC.. In Harlem that is....

i have a bad feeling about this game

MERLING COULD START ON SUNDAY .I REMEMBER HIS RETURNED INT FOR TD DOWN VS JETS IN 2008

Hmm........To me it sounds like the wildcat is our 3rd qb. I must warn you coach Tony, Brandon Marshall isnt going to like this.

Cuban Menace,

How ironic you should mention that.

Years and years ago I used to frequent an alley right behind a barber shop in Harlem.

It's a good thing long hair was in style back then, cause I never did get a haircut!

Kris,

i agree we need hungry blood out there

Dear Mr. Odinseye

Lesson two

When I post I try using at least a hint of truth...no matter how absurd I make the situation.

Soiled :)

Who is faster, Moore or Wallace? What's the difference in their skills?

Reading the new blog and bam!, Marc's hating on several people. AND he wishes NJ would come back!!!!

How about this Marc, why don't you go hang out at the SS? That way you and NJ could be together everyday. They've got a lot of cheerleader there and you would fit right in. You could even rub oil all over NJs body.

Jersey is a pr!ck, and I told him so on several occassions, but, at least he had SOME thoughts...

With that said, if I didn't mention your name, like Francisco, it wasn't personal, you just aren't that memorable, or maybe my memory isn't that good...

Regardless, this blog really is the scum of the blogsphere...And we all know who the culprit(s) are, it hasn't really changed.

And menace was right about one thing...That guy should have had better aim...

cocoa. Not sure where this hostility is from. Perhaps you're one of the trolls aliases, but, apparently you have some beef with Jersey. Don't take that out on me. Cocoa isn't that far of a drive!

Clark.......
Moore at 6.1 can return punts FOR his speed and play multi spots on special teams and had a good pre season and 1TD SO FAR .


wallace ,he's from panama ,he didn't finish high school and is at 6-4 very fast and has a big potential ..can you belive he started playing football in 2004

Sounds reminiscant of Chris Chambers, who I also loved, however, Marshall is bigger and better!

So, he's a 25 year old millionaire superstar that acts like a 25 year old millionaire superstar...

GET OVER IT

Posted by: Marc | December 02, 2010 at 04:12 PM


Marc, so you think BM is reminiscent of Chris Chambers? And you want to talk smack about people here on this blog? Jeeze.

Marc the nj lover

marc hates all people even his parents .

ALoco, thanks for the info.

Marc, you're the one who came out talking smack not me. I happen to like Mando's blog and most of the regulars on it.

And if you want to dance, I'm at the Beach Shack #1 Minuteman Causeway across the steet from Coconuts most every afternoon.

Cocoa, in the sense that people HERE dumped on Chambers for the occassional dropped easy pass.

I was FURIOUS when we released Chambers, as I was a big fan.

My point was that a couple dropped passes no matter how good the guy is and people want to crucify the guy.

I will say ONE good thing about this blog. We don't have any idiot keeping track of everyone's pre-game scoring preditions.

Dear Mr. Bottoms,

Truth you say?

Ok, I know I'm probably going to screw this up. I always get nervous when the pressures on.

Oh God, I feel like Garth right now. OK, here goes:

If you ever go to Harlem for a haircut stay out of Hamilton Heights!!!!

I'm just not worthy!

Ok Marc, I'll agree with that. I just hate it when people start with their BS about this blog and the regulars. And you really stepped in it when you wished NJ was still here.

Peace?

Why are there so many hateful ugly people on this blog? Pretty sad, people can't even get along on a football blog and then some wonder why there is not much peace in this crazy world.

why marc the steroid guy the only one on this blog who thinks a lot of himself and no thing of others .

live and let live marc.

Marc,

I don't want to stir the shyt, but I think Coco got you on the Chambers/Marshall deal. Bam!

Cocoa,

I'd like to come down to Beach Shack #1, but ah, do we have to dance?

Couldn't we just drink too much and share old war stories?

I you enjoy reading 60% nonsense about topics I won't even mention, because it will just get the ball rolling than I pity you bro.

Your beef with jersey is your beef with jersey.

SS is g@y. I only blog here, even though I read the others.

We can have peace, or ignore each other, makes no difference to me

What's the big travesty comparing fans reactions to Chambers and Marshall. It's SIMILAIR!

Chambers would make spectacular catches, and as soon as he dropped an easy one people would go nuts

Marshall makes 5-8 a game, and the one or two he drops gets the same reaction!

Fans are fickle.

VERY GOOD MARC........IGNORE ME ,PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE


I also stated that Marshall is the best WR we've had in a dozen years, maybe ever. That dozen years included Chambers.

McDuffie was the last GREAT WR that I can recall, and he was no Marhall.

IF MARSHALL DROPS A BALL OR TWO A GAME WE WILL NEVER REACH THE PLAYOFFS .I GOT THE FEELING SINCE HIS HIP SURGERY HE WILL NO MOR A DOLPHIN AFTER THIS YEAR .

HOW COME WALLACE CAUGHT EVERY BALL THROWN TO HIM AND HE'S MAKING 210,000 A YEAR

MARSHALL AT 50 MILLION DEAL IS ONE OF THE WORST PLAYERS ON THE FIELD SO FAR THIS YEAR . ONE TD AND COASTING US 2 GAMES WHEN HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER .

Here we go again.......

Yes, Kris. You summed it up rather well...Not much more to say about it, but, consider the source.

I THOUGHT THIS IS A BLOG AND EVERY ONE EXPRESS HIS VIEWS,WHY SOME PEOPLE CAN'T IGNORE IT AND KEEP GOING .

Dear Mr. Clark

Mr. Salguero's blog is like a large dysfunctional family...warts and all.

Some family members personalities can be strong and over bearing while others can be shy and timid.

I myself was not easily accepted when I started coming here a few years back and may have caused other regulars at the time to leave because they may have felt I was not fan enough for them with my non football related posts.

I am and will always be a Dolphin fan...no matter how aburd my posts my be.

Anywhoo the Family members that choose not to come home anymore here at the herald because of other family members weird quirks is sad...come back Carlito...you are missed.

two cents

Soiled :)

Anytime Odin, I'll buy you all the Becks you can drink. Not Viking mead but good German beer.

BTW, I have 2 Viking (reproductions) axes. One of them is the bearded ax. I was looking into a helmet and sword.

i just read some thing about how M.VICK IS TREATED BY TEAMS by knocking him down as RB NOT A QB b/c when he takes off and runs they go after him rather hard ,now his coach is saying it's not fair to treat him like a RB but you got to treat him as a qb .


MR SOILED....NICE POST ..YOUR DINNER TONIGHT ?

Odin, have you ever had any mead? It's not half bad. I used to buy (Screaming Viking Mead) a bottle or two every so often when I lived in Gainesville.

Dear Mr. Aloco

You typing with one hand ?

Soiled :)

Uncle Armando almost kicked me out of the house for good over Brother Carlito.

TWICE!!!!

CARLITO get into rehab and come on back home!

carlito got married last month from his girl friend from panama .

Carlito? Are you guys kidding? He was/is one of the WORST!

Odin, Mandy almost banned you because of that guy? What did you do?

MARC IS DIRTY PERSON. HIS PARENTS CANT BE PROUD.

Gee, ALOCO, real real clever...Nobody would ever guess that was you...

Dolt

marc, i was about to say there's smart assssss trying to write in cap letters to give the idea it's me..it's not marc.

Too M man love in here I'm out.

it's really not smart to fake me that way ,it's dumb and any one believes it is dumb ,if iwant say some bad i would change the style of writing .

FAKE ME 7:44 7:46

go ahead fake all you want and i will not say any thing any more re the faking ,

The thing I couldn't figure out about carlitto was, when he appeared, he couldn't put 2 words together that made semse. And he didn't know the 1st thing about football at least the American kind.

2 months later, he's speaking the kings English and can actualy carry on a halfway intelligent conversation about football. Puzzling to say the least.

So, he's here for about a year or so and gets to be good buddys with NJ. And finally, he knows so much about football, he starts calling people out...even telling Mando he didn't know what he was talking about. Not long after, he split for Slum Sentinel.
