« Chad Henne in his own words | Main | Live blog of Dolphins versus Bucs »

Confidence is good ... now back it up, please

One of the things that aligns people such as Joe Namath, Babe Ruth, Muhammad Ali and Pat Riley with folks like, say, Rex Ryan is they all make big, audacious statements about who they are and what they're about to do.

It could be argued that on the low end of that boldness totem pole, we find Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis, who on Thursday had a definite opinion of where he and fellow starting corner Sean Smith rate among NFL starting duos.

"I'm going go (out) on the limb and say we're the best tandem in the league," Davis said.

But there's, there's Revis-Cromartie, there's the coming union of Asomugha and Samuels in Philly. There's my personal pick for top duo -- Williams and Woodson.

"Name all of them," Davis said. "I'm putting it out there, we're the best talent."

Well, I'd say the Miami tandem has a chance to become the best duo in the NFL. But it is quite safe to say -- even on a Dolphins fan-crazy blog -- that Davis and Smith definitely have not been the best duo in the NFL up to now.

Not when the two players combined for two interceptions last season.

Yesterday, by the way, was big-talk Thursday at Dolphins camp. That's great!

Even Tony Sparano, who is the most understated guy in Broward County according to a poll of Understated People of Broward, went about as far as he gets on chest pounding by saying the Dolphins will compete in the AFC East.

Wow!

No, seriously, coach said his team will "make a run at this thing."

"I can’t tell you how this thing is going to turn out one way or the other but I can tell you that the way this team works, the attitude that I see, the ingredients that we have right now all show me that this team is poised and ready to go here to make a run at this thing," Sparano said. "And I think that I’ve been pleased with what we’ve done it practice.  We aren’t going to back down from anybody in this division.  I don’t care who they are and whose out there.  Our team comes to compete every single week and they have.  This team will compete and will compete at a high level in this division.  

"I think we’re one of the good teams in this division and I think anybody that doesn’t believe that probably going to make a big mistake.”

Your thoughts ...?

Any Football tonight?

It's all right, during the Game I'll keep "hitting" you.

oscar canosa CBS 8pm Greenbay against Indy

smith is the better of the two corners. he's always in the right spot and got burned half as often as davis. he is bigger and faster. if he can do a better job catching the ball. all the good plays he made last year (breaking up plays are good plays) will be great plays this season.

oswald- in two games gates has already proven he can blow the top of the defense. he's done to several times already. you don't see that as talent? pouncey has been blowing up the nose often and i've not seen him get pushed back yet. clay is absolutely a question mark still. but he is something this team hasn't had side crash jensen. an h-back. marshall and bess are both very talented WR's. you don't see bush as a talented player? injuries don't change what he can do. he scares defenses. when he motions out of the backfield linebackers and safeties pinch one off. long is the best tackle in the NFL. incognito is a brawling run blocker. i think carey playing inside was a great move. columbo is old but he's had many pro bowl caliber seasons. as far as daboll's low ranking, he did coach in cleveland i think?? that team couldn't win with brady at QB. it is a snakebite town. his offense is suited to henne. more than 2 WR's in the pattern and lots of motion. lots of quick slants, getting guys in space and not having a fullback and 2 tight ends on the field 80% of the time!!! henning being gone has lifted a huge weight off of my back and the teams. other then some pretty predictable wildcat it was two guys, polite and insert the 2nd TE, who couldn't run or catch!!! i saw more 3 wide sets in the panthers game than in half a season last year!!!

LobosNoches, I will be there opening night

Thankyou, nightswolf.

oscar...all you have to do is check espn or si websites and see what games are being played. don't be a lazy old fogie, look it up like the rest of us.

Dd

bobbyd12 woohoo good stuff . heres to using the Pats an example to the NFL that we have grown a pair and have come to teach the school yard a lesson

I was used to my U-Verse control and now I have the cheapest of Comcast's. You know, bunk, the Economy.

Los, got that right, need to take back out house and set the tone early

bobbyd

just wondern if you are going to whine this year when the fins lose and complain about how much you spent for season tickets like you did last year?

bobbyd12 as much as I love the Phins I'm a realist I dont expect to win but if they at least play to win and not just play just to survive I'll be happy.

no prob oscar canosa

Los, I'm looking forward to a more open offense. I think we surprise some people

Have to watch Indy carefully tonight, they could be the difference of us getting into the Playoffs.

And to the troll in the basement. Get lost dickhead

oscar canosa Peyton going to be out a bit , If anu=ything its Houston not Indy Id be worried about . Also Det is my sleeper team this year

bobbyd12

i'm not in the basement. i'm on the roof. you are the one that questions everyone's support for the team, but when they lose you whine about why you spent your money for season tickets. its on record here in the blogs i will be glad to do a search and show you. so you can call others names, but those names are just what you are. i don't need to call you a name because you know what you are. flaccid.

Greeny(Jests homer) and Golic are a joke in their prediction that miami only win a few games, hopefully fins show them how wrong they are! GO Fins!!

wolf, I made a comment here the night that Houston played recently that I don't believe they match up to us personnel wise. I think we can beat them easily. I am ALWAYS wary of Payton. We'll see.

Dear Troll, YAWN!! you must be in the basement if you have no life as to go searching past quotes by me. And I dont come here often anymore cause of little pussyfoots such as yourself who want to stalk me and be like me. I could care less about some brokedick little lowlife. Now I'm done talking to you, hide behind another name all you want and search away twit.

Peyton.

oscar canosa the prob is we havent beat them yet and that was when they sucked , they actually look pretty good now lol

When NostraHomeUs predicted New York City
to get hit by a major hurricane in 2011
We all thought he was NUTS?

Be seems NostraHomeUs backed it up
and the city is being evacuated becuz of a major hurricane about to strike New York City

let me say that again, ...

A MAJOR HURRICANE IS ABOUT TO HIT NEW YORK CITY IN 2011 !


Can the 2 CBs back up their bold prediction?

Welcome to the world of HAARP

target - NYC

have a HAARPy day :(

don't need to search. just reminding you not to criticize others when you yourself do the same thing. stalker no, everybody on this blog knows you as a major dickhead, only the newbies respond to you...for now. you got tons of sympathy from others on this blog for you know what and all you did after was piss on them all. low class cockroach garbage.

and to think
this is only a small disaster test
w HAARP amped down
just like the earthquake

Wait til they turn it up

and get a CAT 5+ Hurricane

coming soon

have a HAARPy day :(

Sean Smith. Breakout year! DPOY!

You heard it here!

Watch and see!

Go Sean!

Soon the Sheeple will say,

"I can't believe Mother Nature"


ROTFALMAO !!!

have a HAARPy day

Unfoiled Home got all my family for most part in Brooklyn , I'm sure they will be fine . Its not like Katrina,Wilma or Andrew . Us New Yorkers are tough SOB's this is just another day for my peoples to go surfing :)

Yes!!! Showing some swag!

They dont surf in NY

and eating pounds of sausage fat, burping and farting will not make them tough enough to handle HAARP

For your sake
Hope they get by this little one but,...

The Bess Is Yet To Come

question where this came from and the path it took
try to think between the spoon fed BS
and understand u r the target

have a HAARPy day

New World Order

Sounds like a bunch of hot air to me coming from Sparano...but hey, I'll take the confidence anyway...but I want to see it. I've heard a lot of talk out of our FO the last couple years...thats why I don't completely buy it... I mean our FO promised us "fireworks" and a QB competition..that fizzled out didn't it guys....

6 million New Yorkas is what the New World Order wants eliminated

Shut down of the financial district and destroying commerce and the economy

too many worthless feeders in NY walking the streets w some scumbag sense of entitlement

The New World Order wants to wipe theses slaves out
Simply put the planet does not need that many slaves
So they will be eliminating the North East America feeders first

HAARP Weather WDO is targeted for massive destruction in this area

God Bless

have a HAARPy day

It is easy to talk before the fight. Rex talks SuperBowls. Tony talks reps and mental errors. I don't know but we will see.

Ok no more weather BS lets get back to football. Bradford 4-4 1 TD already and game just started

Rodgers has complete command of his Offence.

Indy's Offence is nothing without Manning.

I hope Henne is watching the Packers game.

It's not weather BS

It's HAARP

and they control and steer SEVERE WEATHER wherever they want

The Giants vs Jets football game for Saturday is canceled because of it.

So those New Yorkers
Don't seem so frigggin tough after all

kinda like scared lil bietches afraid of a 36 acre weather machine in Alaska

Scared of a lil HAARP ?

It's a shame that Indy is in such a weak Division.

Green Bay looks Great

I think that TS was making a sale speech to put fans in seats.. But what is wrong by what he said Soo!! But I guarantee if Rex say it or Belichick or The Tampa coach or who ever!
But TS say it there a problem, I like that he is showing confidence in his team and taking off the hand cuffs off of Henne shows that he wants to change his philosophy??? But he started by adding speed and drafting guys that fat tuna wouldn't have.....so at least TS if he fails is going out with a BANG!!!

Going no-huddle is a great idea at least this season. Get a lot of real reps in.

Why do People write such nonsense here in the middle of a Football Game(s). They might think it's funny but it is obnoxious.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are from another Blog given the competition.

oscar canosa just take the best and leave the rest bud . Lets go Dolphins

Seeing these QB's I realize how far we are from having One(of them).

Sam Bradford 8-10 2 TD 1Int maybe St Louis is another sleeper with Detroit . All of a suddedn the bullied become bullies. Lets hope Miami follows suit

Bradford and Rodgers really look great. Fluid, smooth. Natural. Comfortable.

I cant wait til sat I want to see what Johnson can do. If he returns to even half his former glory with Reggie in the backfield and Bess and Marshall up top it could be an interesting year baby . YEAH LETS GO DOLPHINS WOO HOO

I have very low tolerance for BS, Lobo.

oscar canosa after dealing with baby mam drama with ex girlfriend , BS to me is like water off a ducks butt lol, besides its football season bro what else is important (well except my boy ) lol

Watching these games makes you realize we have the worst QB in the division. Screw the stats. Henne is in his final season at Miami. It's clear.

I'll let it go, Lobo(for now). Later.

later gator :)

Too many times have i seen Henne come out and he just has it!! Jets on monday night when Ryan said he looked like Marino, remember? But then he loses, then he wins, then he loses again . There's no consistency really. I do think the OLine is a bit shaky sometimes but i think with a solid center that will change alot. But what if Pouncy gets injured? Then what . Back to Berger ofcourse and id like to know what of Columbo . Were counting on that dude BIG TIME.
