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!

dont hate rich ppl at all aloco, know a few ppl that are well off myself, just dont feel sorry for them when they feel instability in their lives, thats all...dont worry i still luv ya tho even if u hate me:)

SUPERPHIN SHOULD GO FIND A JOB AND TRY TO BE A NICE HUMAN INSTEAD OF USING THIS BLOG TO SHOW US HOW FUNNY HE'S ..........

YOU DON'T SOUND THAT YOU KNOW ANY ONE,YOUR WORDS ARE NASTY,YOU R NASTY ,,,,DOESN'T HOW MUCH MONEY HE MAKS ,THIS STUFF HEART PEOPLE DEEP IN THEIR SOUL .

Aloco,

Maybe Marshall should have written his "borderline shrink" a "borderline paycheck" to match his "borderline diagnosis."

IMO, this shrink's only after Marshall's money. If I were Marshall I would seek another professional opinion. No ones almost anything!

*lol* @ Aloco.....r u hiring????

SUPERPHIN ,

ARE YOU A PLUMBER ?

Borderline can also be percieved as there's almost nothing wrong. Almost nothing wrong can apply to at least 5 out of 8 billion people in this world. You dont need to shell out big bucks for a shrink to tell you there's "almost nothing wrong" with your personality.

I fear this guy is just taking Marshall to the bank!

sh%t no.....o wait, bad choice of words....no sir!!!

And i do not hail from new jersey either!!!!

DB ,


GOOD POST @ 11;47 PM///////// SOME DOCTORS LIKE MAFIA ,ONCE A PATIENT PUTS HIS FOOT IN THE DOOR ,YOU WILL BE PATIENT FOR LIFE .........

Almost nothing wrong with one's personality can apply to the Pope. This shrink needs his license revoked. He's more thief than shrink.

It would make me feel no better if my doctor diagnose me with a "borderline" small penis.

"So doc, does that I mean I have a small penis or an almost small penis?"

It not likr theres a "huge" difference. LOL...

THE WORSE KIND OF A DOCTOR..IS THE SHRINK,,,THEY ALWAYS WANTS TO SEE YOU THREE TIMES A WEEK FOR LIFE FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.........I SAW THAT IN A MOVIE..IT'S FUNNY ,

DB;;;; YOU COULDN'T FIND ANOTHER EXAMPLE BUT THE PENIS.......

Yeah these shrinks are nothing but gypsies with note pads and thier own airconditioned offices.

ALoco @ 11:59. LOL........

ALoco,

I dont know which is worse. Have a woman tell you that you have a almost small penis or have her tell you that you have a almost large penis. What's the fricking difference. LOL...

you are either retarded or not......u cant be almost "retarded"........or can u?

ALoco,

I understand. Somedays I have to send the search party out to look for my "bandit" too. LOL...

superPHIN,

It no longer "retarded", its mentally challenged. Anyway its defined as the deficiency of ones mental capacity to fend for one's self. Still there are those who have the mental capacity but still lack ability to fend for one's self. So go figure.

Theres a lot of prison mates that would argue the BPD syndrome......most are carrying life sentences and/or on death row...should we not try and feel sorry for them...just sayin!!!

DB........ DO YOU THINK A LARGE PENIS IN A RELATIONSHIP W/ A WOMAN?

W/ AWOMN IS IMPORTANT ?

FUNNY POST @ 12.03 PM

ALoco,

I think you'll have to ask a woman that. The only penis Im fond of is my own. I used to tellthe girls that it isnt the size of the ship. Its the motion in the ocean that counts.

It's a great line thats worked for guys with small penises for years. LOL...

SUPERPHIN AND DYINGBEED ARE IGNORANT MEN WHO HAVE MENTAL DISORDERS

DB...IT'S LIKR THE GUY WHO HAS NO MONEY AND ALWAYS SAYS ,THE MONEY DOESN'T BRING HAPPINESS .

ALoco,

Guys with small penises can have lots of s-e-x too. Just got to learn the art of selling the small penis.

It's all about the sale my boy. All about the sale. Who gives a damn what they think later after youve already gotten what you were looking for! LOL...

FAKE ALOCO@ 12;13

aloco

r u saying Im retarded or almost "mentally unstable" as they call it.....and that hurts my feelings too...I didnt call u names*lol*

Money may not bring happiness but it sure makes misery a whole lot more tolerable! LOL...

OR THE HOMELESS WHO ALWAYS SAYS, (( THANK GOD ,IT COULD BE WORSE )) ............

alright DB and aloco*both fake and real*......callin it a nite.

heres hoping that miami pulls off something spontanous this week and by that i dont mean marshalls shrink calling for a conference call explaining the sypmtoms of BPD syndrome....PHIN OUT****

GOOD NIGHT SUPERPHIN AND THANK YOU FOR NOT GETTING OFFENDED .......MAY GOD BELSS YOUR FAMILY ........

GIRLFRIEND SAYS MY PENIS IS ALMOST LARGE ENUFF TO FIT

DYINGBREED AND SUPERPHIN WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

FUNNY FAKE ALOCO@ 12;27 PM .

ALoco,

Just say to your girlfriend, "Honey your hole's almost tight enough for my pole to fit."

Then she might decide to dump the magnum sized milkman. LOL...

Definitions:

BPD=Buttock personality disorder, Symptoms: U act like a buttocks and throw footballs at past teammates on the sideline and kill drives w dumb 15 yard penalties.

DPD=Dumb personality disorder, Symtoms include you know it is ur last year to prove yourself and you hitch your wagon to Henne and the 30th ranked OC from last year. Then you hire your son for over $100K a year even though he does not know a football from a soccer ball.

No profanity this time Armando, hope it is ok. I feel like that kid that said I see dead people. I dont see dead people but I see a dead season. Im not psychic but I see reggie getting hurt by game 6. Prob will happen at a south beach club. Our best player Jake Long is already angling for a trade. He prob said my knee hurts please trade me to New England or the Jets. Football is my fave sport, it is hard to watch this. This season will give some clarity to the status of the team I think.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJtVXVjYQmo I think I solved the Brandon Marshal issue, these issues show it is self defense for sure.

Im gonna get banned again by El Jefe

You guys are worried about beating out N.E. @ N.J.,you better worry about beating out Buffalo~~

Mando, thank you for finally telling it like it is. See my post from yesterday!

I only see two wins this year, Buff at home and Maybe the Browns, I dont see the fish winning any of the rest. Oakland, Kansas City, Washington, are much improved this yr.
This OL business is getting old. The past 4 yrs we've been looking for OL help. RG is a problem, they need to look at RT. Carey really sucks. Its Dea-sha-view all over again,,,lol,,We could use Zack Miller too.

Phins drafted a center (Pouncey) on first round as a need. Sparano asserted Pouncey will only play at center and not be moved. Now O'Hara (a Pro Bowl center) visits Miami and there are plans that if signed he will play at center and Pouncey moved to guard. Are we still improvising at this stage of the game?

Are we going to draft on need by position or are we continue to sign players for "their versatility". What has "versatility" brought us in 3 years?

Sparano and Ireland have missed on so many offensive line draft picks and free agents that it boggles the mind. They either are poor evaluators of talent or can't coach them up. There are no other possible explanations.
