Dolphins snooping around for guards

Something is going on with John Jerry.

The former third-round draft pick is not exactly starting his second NFL season with a bang. Expected to compete for the starting right guard job, Jerry is not working at all with the starting unit. Instead the Dolphins have turned to Rey Feinga as their possible starting right guard.

Feinga, signed to the practice squad last November, caught the eye of coaches late last season, according to coach Tony Sparano. He was signed to the active roster December 8 and played the final three games in a reserve role.

And now Feinga is getting practically all if not all the first-team repetitions.

But the Dolphins are apparently hedging their bet on Feinga and Jerry and anyone else who might contend for the job.

The team has reached out to former Giants guards Rich Seubert to check on his availability. It is safe to assume the club also inquired about Shaun O'Hara. Nothing is happening with either right now. Miami promised nothing in terms of a free agent visits. But that the Dolphins are actively studying at least one available free agent guard suggests the club might allow the current players to prove themselves in the coming days.

[3:45 Update: O'Hara is in town and visiting with the Dolphins today and Monday. He has a history (don't they all?) with some folks in the Dolphins organization. The idea is for him to meet with everyone and see if there is both a comfort level and a financial fit. If O'Hara signs, it is possible he works at center, which moves rookie Mike Pouncey to guard, or the veteran tries to work at guard. Either way, the idea is to improve the guard spot.]

And if there is not sufficient proof that gives the club confidence?

Well, that's why the Dolphins are looking around.

Now, please do not misplace your news sense here. The news is not that the Dolphins are looking around to upgrade the offensive line. They have been doing that since, ahem, the current administration arrived in 2008.

The news, and it is troubling right now, is that a promising player that was picked relatively high in the draft -- Jerry -- is not at the point where he can be considered a viable starter.

Compare that to Pouncey, this year's first round pick, who signed on Saturday and took every first-team snap in practice at center on Sunday. That's what you want to hear. Not that the draft pick has been passed by a guy signed to last year's practice squad.

I realize Pouncey was slotted in the first round and Jerry in the third. But come on!

Im pretty confident henne will be on IR this year...and reggie bush will beat out both Moore and Devlin at the QB/RB position....just sayin!!!

I would be pissed if a psyche told me that I was almost crazy. It would me Im not eligible for disability.

Its like saying Im not quite crazy enough to get my crazy check. LOL...

well, I'm outta here too...

need to call Ross and hook up with his connection and get the good sh#t.
Maybe then I will look at this team like he does...A Real Winner (being sarcastic)

Many questionable moves on TS's part. They said JL insisted on playing while hurt last year. Well, you can't play, my man. Subject closed.

Our best player is out and we still won't have a viable QB, also a very iffy backfield (even if they do have upside), a receiver who's admittedly mentally I'll as well as a new offensive coordinator and system. We WILL be in the Andrew Luck sweepstakes for sure. Maybe a whole new regime switch too.

90 % of football players/and some owners are all about BPD.....the fact that marshall admitted doesnt change anything.....u got to be crazy to make 50 million and still think u r crazy....Right marshall...luv ya!!!

Why do people listen to these educated witch doctors we call psyches anyway?

We take them out of grass skirts and give them suit and tie. then we begin to think everything they say is gospel. Can we just geesh that already! LOL...

Crazy=Schizophrenia, Period

U know what would be even sadder kingsmith,
what if miami DID get the #1 pick and pass Luck up for another OT.....would that not make u CRAZY??!!!DONT ASSUME ANYTHING WITH IRELAND RUNNIN THE SHOW CUZ HE MIGHT JUST SURPRISE US ALL yet again!!!

Just one more thing..

Got to be careful going to the games...if they start handing out Kool-Aid at the gates.....we know what's up!!!!

We take these witch doctors out of grass skirts and give them suit and tie and call them repectable.

But when you take the bottle away from a drunken horse thief we still have a horse thief. Geesh it already with these educated witch doctors! LOL...

I wonder if Marshall's witch doctor, oops I mean shrink, dripped fresh chicken blood into the fire while making Marshall's diagnosis?

Some xenophobic comments from DB. Not unexpected.

Went to the doctor last week and he told to eat fresh salamander salad with eye of nute dressing. So I asked could I pay my bill in bright shiney beeds.

He had the nerves to tell me no. I told him to go geesh it already doc!

The new genetic modifications techniques will offer any person that is dissatisfied with his Self a chance to correct It. Sociopaths and Psychopaths will not be given a choice.

oscar,

That's what's wrong with society. We have far more ways to say crazy than to actually know what it really is. Xenophobic, really Oscar?

Youre very clever in your ways to say crazy. LOL...

You probably are(xenophobic) and don't know it, DB.

This crazy thats talked about is mostly a spiritual and moral issue. Man thinks he'll one day come up with a pill that makes it all better.

Thus far the best they've done is to place the human brain in suttle mute states. If a person has a physical brain disorder that causes a dysfunction thats entirely incorrectable. In most cases it isnt.

Fan asks *Marshall, I heard you a little crazy man, wassup??

Marshall responds*I said borderline motha#$%ker, I never said I was Crazy!!!

As marshall grows more rage inside him, he doesnt realize his hand slowly creeps to his back and pulls out what looks to be a machete cutting tool.

Fan becomes nervous and quickly responds...*whoa s%i! dawg!!! RELAX.....good luck this year!!!


Marshall then snaps out of it and decides now would be a good time for some KOOL-AID...

Usually in most cases crazy is a moral and spiritual dysfuction and not related to a physical brain disorder at all.

The bible diagnoses it has sin and has spiritual remedies for it that many of choose not to obey. Geesh it up your biblical prodigy! LOL...

See, DB, when you write in Internet you have to mantain perspective as to race, ethnic groups, gender, etc. as they don't exist in this World and you might,slowly, be erased from It.

Many of us choose not to partake of the biblical remedies for crazy, then crazy esculates. LOL...

oscar,

I watched that damn Matrix movie and got scared as hell. Makes you wonder if everything we see is fake. Are we all connected to bio tubes and computers are controlling everything we see, speak, and feel.

That damn Matrix movie scares hell out of me. LOL...

Tony Sparano will now have to approach Marshall very cuatiously if he should drop any passes this year......so that if hes thinking he should recieve an @ss chewing that Marshall doesnt literally chew Sparanos HEAD off....

Not to a computer, DB, but certainly we are all connected, to each other.

John Clayton just announced we traded for Peyton Manning!

We gave up two 1st and two 2nd rd picks for him. It was a sign and trade deal with Peyton's new contract.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE HAVE PEYTON MANNING WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can conceive Internet as a vehicle to express our Collective Unconscious.

I would trade our whole draft for Manning right now.....at least we would know we would have a legit winning QB .....and the way we waste draft picks around here...why NOT!!

DB, ur BPD is kicking in again*lol*....you just said we have manning!!!

Just kidding guys. Since Marshall's come out of the closet its now "fashionable" to be "almost crazy". LOL...

Heehee.

SUPERPHIN..........OLEASE LEAVE MARSHALL ALONE AND QUIT YOU R LOW CLASS JOKES ABOUT HIM .......

Has anyone ever met Ross personally? From the looks of things I think we're watching old VHS tapes of him. Theyve just digitized them.

PLEASE

That was a real neat trick how they used today's technology to make it appear Ross, Ireland, and Sparano were all in the same room sitting at the same table.

Man the things they can do with todays technology to make old VHS tapes look real. Totally incredible.

Dont get me MAD aloco, u wont like me when im mad....got it??!!!

DB........... ARE YOU DUMB,BY BRINGING IN HIS DOCTOR ,YOU R ABUSING MARSHALL IN EVERY POST AND SPEAKS LOUD ABOUT YOUR IQ .

DBreed,
Excuse yourself.

A 3 minute ten round slugfest is far more taxing than a 30 minute half in football...

Ask any Dojo Master...

Or come see me.

I can believe in this age of advanced modern medicine a shrink's telling a client he's diagnosed as "almost crazy". I would feel "fully crazy" for giving that shrink my money! LOL...

O please aloco....im sure all the green stuff marshall tucks in his pillow at nite for safe keeping more than makes up for the jokes he recieves....my heart doesnt bleed for the filthy rich...sorry bro!!!

GulfDolphin,

Im almost crazy so dont make me have to almost come through this internet and almost fvck you up to. You never almost piss off almost crazy people.

Havent you almost learned that by now? LOL...

YOU ARE SO BAD ...YOU BOTH KNOW MARSHALLL IS GOING THROUGH A LOT RIGHT NOW AND TO ATTACK THAT WAY SPEAKS VOLUME OF A DOLPHIN FAN WHO'S IN BAD TASTE USING ARMANDO FOURM TO MAKE FIUN OF ANOTHER HUMAN .........VERY BAD..........

DYING BREED AND SUPERPHIN ARE TOW PEOPLE LIVE BEHIND IRON BARS ON THEIR WINDOWS AND THEY HATE PEOPLE WHO RICH .

Maeshall recently signed a $50 million dollar contract. He's only concern about what those "little green" people thinks of him and nothing else. Get a clue ALoco my friend.

That dumbass shrink probably has 2-3 PHD's sitting on his walls and the best he can come up with is tell his client "he's almost crazy." Shame on that shrink!
