Dolphins are not interested in Plaxico Burress

Yes, I'm still on vacation. But I'm not sipping drinks garnished with little umbrellas on some island and I'm certainly not hiking any mountain. I'm home. And I'm aware.

And I'm keenly aware many of you are wondering if the Dolphins are going to show interest in wide receiver Plaxico Burress, who was released Tuesday from prison after serving 21 months for a gun crime related to his blowing a couple of holes in his leg at a nightclub in 2008.

Burress, 34 when the NFL season eventually begins, may be an interesting topic. But I am told by a reliable source the Dolphins are "absolutely not" interested in Burress.

So much for that rumor.

I happen to agree the Dolphins should have zero business interest in Burress, despite the fact he is a South Florida resident. Why?

Did I mention he'll be 34 in August?

Did I mention he just spent 21 months in jail?

Did you know he has not played NFL football since 2008?

Did you know it is now 2011?

Maybe none of that bothers you. Maybe you think Burress can be the next coming of Michael Vick. And perhaps he can weave a tale of redemption and resurrect his fading career. I hope he does.

But Michael Vick was 28 years old when he returned to the NFL, not 34. And it still took him a year to get up to speed again.

Sorry, but the odds are against Burress. And it simply doesn't make sense for Miami to take that gamble.

Burress, in his prime, was an imposing 6-foot-5 target who combined that great size with very good speed and an increasing experience of defenses that made him very dangerous. But even in 2008, following his grand 2007 performance that helped the Giants win the Super Bowl, Burress was a troubled dude.

He was missing practices and was late to team meetings and was something of an enigma in the Giants locker room. He was also apparently in decline. After catching 70 passes for 1,025 yards in 2007, Burress had only 35 catches in 10 games in 2008. His average per catch was the lowest since his rookie year and the lowest in what was a steady four-year decline from 19.9 in 2004 to 16.0 in 2005 to 15.7 in 2006 to 14.6 in 2007 to 13.0 in 2008.

And you expect it will go up after not playing since the winter of 2008 and spending 21 months in jail?

Here's another thought for you to consider:

If the Dolphins decide they want a receiver to help Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess and the rest of the receiver corps in 2011, they aren't going to chase a 34-year-old guy. They're going to chase someone in his prime.

Did you know Santonio Holmes is a free agent? He's 27 years old. And fast. And hasn't been in jail the past two years. He played football last year ... and the year before. And putting him out there with Brandon Marshall would turn just about any QB into a playmaker. And it would be a blow to the Jets to lose him.

Did you know Braylon Edwards is a free agent? He's 28 years old. And his yards per reception number last year was 17.1. He also was a Michigan teammate of Chad Henne's and the two had good chemistry together. And yes, he drops passes, but he caught 53 last year for 904 yards and seven touchdowns.

And seven TDs is only one fewer than Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess had combined in 2010.

I am not saying the Dolphins will be interested in either Edwards or Holmes. But I am using them to illustrate the point that if Miami were to dip into the free agent WR market, there would be several players that make much more sense than Plaxico Burress.

Think on that.

So back to vacation I go. Please follow me on twitter as I am on there regularly and you can interact with me while I'm on this great vacation I'm on -- thinking about football.

You know Aloco Character....I USED to wonder if some of those WELL WRITTEN post were really YOU or not....

I mean after all....the ALOCO CHARACTER writes like a RETARD......

But your post from Gay Kris removes all doubt......

So you REALLY ARE all the CHARACTERS/ALIAS on this blog......and you do write English well.....under different names....

Thanks for being RETARDED enough to PROVE ME RIGHT.....and REMOVE any doubt from Poster's who still fall for your CUTE/CUDDLY....FRIENDLY RETARD ACT.......

nuff said.....

Enjoy posting to yourself under different names for the rest of the day.....

I've already learned everything I need to know about you......and you already proven everything I already knew to anybody else who might read this blog.....

Thanks....and good day to you....RETARD......

kris iS JUST DUMB................... TO THINK I AM GAY KRIS IS JUST DUMB .

I see Aloco will forever have this blog under his thumb. His name will always draw the most attention on every page of this blog, forever. People will respond to him, agree with him, criticize him, or fake him, endlessly as though they are under some spell to give the majority of their attention to a silly bobblehead.

WHY I FEEL KRIS IS TALKING TO HIMSELF....... ASK MAX AND VON NOSTER .

TIME FOR WORK UNTIL MIDNIGHT .............. GOOD DAY TO ALL INC KRIS .

The END is NEAR!

Von Noster?

You must be from the Umgebung von Knob Noster Family, Bilder and Preise?

I saw them on the news, what was it they were arrested for again? Something like felonious jaywalking? No-no, that wasn't it.

Let me see........it rhymed with jaywalking..........oh yeah, now I remember Felonious Bone Hawking! Yeah that was it, REPEAT offenders they were!

Nice to see that the dozen or so fish fans are starting to get geared up for the season. Anyone see LeQuitter down on South beach maybe he could join Tony for a few fist pumps to get the guys primed for two a days.

Nice post @ 9:54am


Fake Odin is funny...........Not in a haha way, but in the other way...(Not that there's anything wrong with that)....

Posted by: Cuban Menace | July 16, 2011 at 08:45 AM


Cuban,

You might be right about the "other way", but your wrong about the "ha ha way".

Fake Odin has been getting better. You have to admit, the "sharing the glue with Aloco" and "be careful don't glue yourself to your member" was pretty funny.

Then the "Please don't make me tazz you Bro" was hilarious!

PS: Don't tell anyone..........but after thoroughly invetigating the matter, I've come to the conclusion that the person impostoring me is Soiled Bottom's Mom! She came on here one day looking for Soiled and her car keys, instead she met Aloco and now..........she's "Hooked"...................Shhhhhhhhh!

ODIN WHY YOU PROMISE TO STICK TO FOOTBALL YESTERDAY AND TODAY YOU ARE BACK TALKING CRAP?

ALOCO,

Why do you make stuff up all the time and what makes you think that everyone doesn't see right through it?

I was COMMENTING on my impostor in what I believe was a humorous way.

At least I wasn't pointing fingers and accusing everyone of doing the exact same thing I was guilty of, you know, just like you do every single day. A tad hippocritical I'd say.

I know.........I know.........you'd prefer I just whine and cry: WHY ARMANDO NUT STOP MY IMPUSTOR? I TINK ARMANDO IMPOSTOR ME THUTS WYH HE DO NUHTHINK ABUOT EAT!

Time FOR MY CAT BRAIN STEW FLAVORED WITH POO!

WTF?!?!

I didn't promise ANYTHING and I wasn't talking CRAP to the Menace.

Just trying to inject some humor into ANOTHER impostoring situation.

My two sons are coming Home a little earlier than expected. Now we can bump up the fishing trip and make BOTH family reunions.

Time to clean up the beer cans, the whiskey bottles and get rid of the police officers Daughter!

Daddy's Home!!!!

PS: I hope we get a new CBA soon(football talk so Aloco doesn't get his thong bunched back up his.........well........you know).

What makes odinseye think anyone gives a rats hoot about his reunions or teenage drop out lifestyle? His rap all sounds pathetic to me.


What makes odinseye think anyone gives a rats hoot about his reunions

-You mean........you mean you don't.............you don't care? (Sniff, sniff), you're kidding right? Come on Wunderin, PLEASE say you care. PLEASE MAN, lie to me if you have to, JUST SAY YOU CARE!

or teenage drop out lifestyle? His rap all sounds pathetic to me.

Posted by: jus wunderin | July 16, 2011 at 03:48 PM

-Without you caring Jus Wunderin, I'm NOTHING but PATHETIC! OH God, PLEASE make hime care(Sniff, sniff-whimper......).

PS: Edmund Gates is Devon Bess with Super Speed(More football talk. Don't thank me, just doing my part to help a fellow blogger keep his thong out of his.......well......you know........)

Jus Wunderin,

The Police officers daughter wants too stay the night again tonight. I was jus wunderin, do you think I should let her.

I mean, she stopped complaining about how much I drink and promised to give me a........wait for it.........wait for it..........A Hair Cut!

WHAA-WHaa-whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Nonetheless: PARTY! PARTY! PARTY! PARTY!

Oops, for the benefit of a certain fellow blogger's private region, I meant to add on to the end of that last post:

Bryan Cox was a Linebacker(Football talk).

ValHalla!!!!

Guys over 18 that have the need to post on a blog they had a girl are usually referring to connie the cow or a stained magazine.

He tells us it was a police officers daughter. Oh wowee, aren't we impressed? How adoloscent can one get? The reality is you are probably the only one she found that will even do her, if 'she' even exists.

How many times has this odinseye told us about the hottie he had last night (and why would he bother, not one other blogger here does that EVER, and I am CERTAIN we are all not virgins) when in fact he spent the whole previous night blogging here? Ah hem. Ah hem ah hem ah hem.


dd

9-7 is a successful season

making progress towards competing on a regular basis for the first time in a long while

11-5 means outstanding progress given the schedule and divison

anyone who says 9-7 is failure is god and forgetting the last 8-10 years

we need to build the core players on the team

there have been both pluses and minuses in recent years but more of the former and they are young

Typical fin fans, happy with mediocrity forever.

9-7 is a successful season? Wooohooooo

Who shall be my darling lesbian robot tonight?

Wolf,

I agree with your 9-7 assessment.

I do like the core players we have and the overall condition in which the team is in. Provided of course that all things start to come together soon.

If we find a Star player here and add a solid starter there, this team should steadily improve for years to come.

Gotta Believe!


Guys over 18 that have the need to post on a blog they had a girl are usually referring to connie the cow or a stained magazine.

-Hang in there Jus wunderin. First thing you need to do, get out of Mommy's basement, you'll be amazed at how quickly your Connie the Cows and magazine prospects improve!


He tells us it was a police officers daughter. Oh wowee, aren't we impressed?

-Whether anyone is impressed or not, I do get some kind of SICK satisfaction with the WHOLE scenario. As an adult(and I do use the term loosely-LOL), in fact this is the only time EVER that I've actually "dated" any law enforcement officers DAUGHTER(I did date a Cops little sister, but that was when we were both teens). Anyways, you can believe what you want. This woman is 20 years younger than me and she ain't no Connie the Cow, she ain't no butter face either. SMOKING is more like it!


How adoloscent can one get?

-If you mean whiny adolEscent, you're doing a pretty good job hating and crying about my good fortune. Still, I'm pretty sure I got you beat. You're only as young as you act and feel!


The reality is you are probably the only one she found that will even do her, if 'she' even exists.

-You follow up "The reality is" with "probably" and then a supposition? Uh, alrighty then-LOL.

The reality is, you're going to quite some lengths to hate on someone posting about a Young Hottie. Hmmmmmmmmmmm................I suspect you have some "terminal" issues with Youg Hotties, Yes????


How many times has this odinseye told us about the hottie he had last night (and why would he bother, not one other blogger here does that EVER,

-So you're saying you'd rather I just be like everyone else? Even like the guy with "terminal" Young Hottie "issues"?

Um, no thanks, I'll just be me for now. Sorry you're feeling threatened and jealous-psyche-LOL! Get out of Momma's basement and get you some too Home Skillet-LOL!

and I am CERTAIN we are all not virgins) when in fact he spent the whole previous night blogging here? Ah hem. Ah hem ah hem ah hem.

Ah hem, your "Big Finish" is something you just make up and throw out there? A simple bald face lie? How anti-climatic!

Ah, now I'm starting to understand the "Terminal Issues" with the Hotties. Your "big finish" ain't getting the job done and it happens way to quick. All I can say is, get out of that basement and get in some practice or something. H e ll, in your case I'd even recommend maybe paying for some. It'll help alleviate some of the pressure that keeps "Bringing you Down" so fast, Ah Hem Hem.....................

PS: Knute Rockney ROCKED!(football talk)!


Time for a Haircut!

I'm going to have to get liquored up REAL GOOD if I'm going to have a Woman that close to me with a pair of sharp scissors in her hands!

Women LOVE me, BUT, they ALWAYS end up hating me, what gives?

Anyways, you just never know when their going to SNAP!

Bottoms Up!!!!

Real soon.

The Police officers daughter wants too stay the night again tonight. I was jus wunderin, do you think I should let her.

Love Odin..(Not in that why though)(Not that there's anything wrong with that)....

My take on the season. The schedule seems reasonable, but offense was our biggest problem last year. The answer? Rookie RB, Rookie Center, Rookie HB/TE, new OC. It will take time. I think 8-8 at best, but probably another 7-9.

CUBAN,

Lil Aloco, Who cares????, Jus, NOOOOOOOOOO, Not another 7 and 9 season....LOL
