« 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 ...?

VIKINGS ARE KNOWN TO EAT A LOT OF PIG MEAT AND FAMOUS FOR SWTICHING WOMEN AMONG THEMSELVES ........


PORK , RELATED ///////////

Odinseye-

You a pork over?

Ever shared a female?

Socalfan,

Mostly I'm Dolphin supporter.

I'll support Henne THIS YEAR, it's just that the Honey moon is OVER!

Just like MOST PHIN Fans, I was hoping Henne would develop a lot sooner. As soon as Hennings was brought in I knew there would be a problem, and I posted on this from day 1. Still I hoped Henne would somehow make it despite HenningS.

I'm still going to spport WHOEVER lines up under center for the Phins and seeing how Daboll is head ad shoulder above the "declining years" of Hennings, I'm catiously optimistic that Henne can get it done.

pork lover?

I have true Viking ancestry and played in Rock Bands for thirty years!

Nuff Said-LOL!

Bottom's Up - ALL AROUND!

LMAO!!

I'll take that as a YES!

SHARING A FEAMLE, MEANS SHARING YOUR GIRL FRIEND OR YOUR WIFE AS PIGS DO ...THE PIGS WERE INTRODUCED AFTER THE VIKING TIME ,,,THE VIKING WERE FAMOUS FOR HAVIY GAY SECRET LIFE STYLE .BUT LATER AS OF TODAT ,THE MEN WHO ARE MARRIED IN THE VIKING NATION ABOUT 13 MEN AND THE REST ARE HAPPY MEN ......

Odin.. good to hear!

By the way-

If you haven't see it, there's an awesome video up on the Dolphins site with the cheerleaders doing a bikini show. HOT HOT HOT!

To all dolphin fans thats hates henne well just like you i hate him too. But do u remenber a time when he was decent. He was ! Thats when we had a decent o line. So less than henne the ligne need to have a.great year. Yes henne doesnt go thru progression. If your ol is not giving u protection u be quick to get rid of the ball too= MISTAKE INT. So we will go as far as the o line take us. As far as pats go daboll team woop him last year with less talent 2 weeks before they blews us out last year. This team record is in the hand of the OL. Henne can make all the throws. So lets be optimistic about the OL and be patient with henne. At this staff have made a great effort to improve the line. LETS GO PHIN

PIGS RULE!

Marriage = NOT HAPPY

FINFANS72....... THE CHEER LEADERS AREN'T SEXY AT ALL ...TO BE SEXY YOU HAVE TO BE A BURNETT AND AT LEAST 32 YEARS-46 YEARS OLD .........

32-46 years old? WTF? Grannies = not sexy!

There are exceptions, but 18-22 is the hot age. Cheerleaders are awesome, especially in bikinis.

It's a little late in the year for sucklings. To get the perfect ones you have to get them earlier do to their mating habits(20 to 30 pounds is perfect.

I have an End of the Summer Party every year and we roast a pig. This year were goin to roast a full grown and the smallest one my neighbor has(he's weighing in at about 50 pounds right now).

I'm roasting the big one regular, but the little one I'm going to stuff with potatoes, onions, carrotts and parsnips and roast him under ground.

Viking Warrior Style!!!!

72......... TO HAVE 18-22 YEARS OLD IS LIKE HAVING ARMANDO GIVES US AN ARTICLE FILLED WITH , NUGGETS AND ACORNS ........

ODIN,


WHAT PLACE IN EARTH WOULD ALLOW YOUR NEIGHBOR TO HAVE LIFR PIG LIVE WITH HIM ?


Q...... HOW MUSH A 30 Ib PIG COAST ?

Nuggets and acorns? 18-22 year olds are like those little baby suckling pigs. SWEET and YUMMY!

i want to see the closeup on tony's face in the 4th quarter of the NE game. will be on the cover of SI. worry.

If I ate at a buffet of 18 year old girls, I definitely would NOT leave hungry!

Aloco,

Since when are you an expert on secret gay lifestyles.........oh wait, NEVERMIND!

I forgot who I was talking too for a second, I understand, COMPLETELY(not that there's anything wrong with that.......)!

I guess "Bottom's Up" takes on a slightly different meaning for you, no?

Secret gay lifestyles? Gay viking history? ALoco, you never fail to crack me up, buddy!! BOTTOMS UP!

ODIN,


DON'T GET MAD AND DON'T START USING THESE WORDS (( OH WAIT,NEVERMIND ! ))

ODIN,

YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF YOUR HISTORY .THE VIKINS WERE THE FIRST SHOW THE WORLD THE COLOR (( PURPLE )).......

I've never seen Odin get mad. He always takes everything with a laugh. Life is easier that way, right Odin?

Aloco,

I don't really have any neighbors. At least not in the sense that people in the city do. I live in te Hiawatha National Forest.

Some people I call neighbors, they live 20 and thirty miles away, one has a Buffalo Ranch and the other has a Pig Farm.

Their families usually come to my parties and they always pitch in.

PS: These Northern Hillbilly's know how to PARTY!!!!

Oh where, oh where, has our Mando gone

What site can I watch the game on tonight?

72,

I NEVER EVER get mad!

Especially here on the blog. These Doom and Gloomers don't get me down. I let it roll right off my back.

Even when they spout of all their stupid, dumba s s non-knowing retarded BULLSHYT!

These ROTEN F-CKS WOULDN'T KNOW A DAM FOOTBALL IF I KNOCKED THEIR BIG STUPID EMPTY HEADS RIGHT OFF THEIR SISSY BOY BODIES wITH IT!

AaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHH!

Odinseye-

I don't know if you saw my post the other day. I just saw the BAD NEWS BEARS movie with Billy Bob Thorton as the drunken coach, and i thought what a perfect role that would be for you. LOL!

ODIN IS A MAN OF INTEGRITY WHO HAS NEIGHBORS WHO RASIE PIGS ,YOUNG AND OLD ...........

BILLY BOB IS ONE OF THE WORST ACTORS EVER ,NOT EVEN WHEN YOU R DRUNK,YOU CAN WATCH HIM ........

...Aloco.Watching the Little League World Series. The boys from Montana are getting crushed right now...

Yes we did suckling pigs for a wedding last weekend. We roasted fingerling potatoes under the pigs..Burrata and Arugula with Heirloom tomtoes, and Dandelion Greens suateed in chilli, lemon, olive oil. Delicious. The pigs were from the Brides family for the occasion. They do 4H stuff, and have a farm out here that rocks..

I SAW IT! It pissed me off too. Just what are you trying to say?

You calling me a Drunk and a Baseball Coach, Huh?

I'll have you know I've never coached Baseball.

I did coach T-Ball though and yes it drove me to drinking.

I had a little oriental kid that would hit the ball an take off running for THIRD BASE EVERYTIME.

Then he would follow me around going: Did I do good Coach, did I do good?

True Story :)

DD,


THANK YOU, AND WHAT ABOUT THIS CHEESE BURATA , IS IT MOZZARELLA OR SOME THING ELSE ?

HOW MUSH TO PAY FOR A 30 Ib PIG ?

Aloco....Burrata is a real young-fresh mozzerella. It has the consistancy of a custard. It tastes just like rich cream, and is silky smooth. Way better then "fresh mozzerella" even the stuff that is artisinal..

The pigs were free..supplied by the brides family. I didn't ask how much they sell them for, as these were raised for the occasion.

**NEWS FLASH**

Breaking News! This just in:

After having read several of Armando Salguero's recent articles it has been reported that Larry Johnson beat the living snot out of him.

Salguero is reportedly being treated for injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.

An eyewitness, that led Police to Johnson, has reported he saw Johnson standing over Salguero asking: "I'm I hitting the Ho Hard Enough NOW?!?!"

Thank You Uncle Walter.

And that's the way it is, August 27, 2011.

DD,

THANKS AGAIN...........

UNCLE WALTER

THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

72,

Where did you go?

It was joke. You see, Drunk/Coach.............

Not a Coach, you know, meaning..........I'm a Drun...........aw.......NEVERMIND.............

WHAAAA WHaaaa whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa............

ALOCO...If you want, I can trck down the web address for the purveyor I get the Burrata from. They come in 4 and 6, 8oz balls. They are relativley cheap...except for the shipping. As they make the cheese fresh, the seller demands that all cheese is overnighted to guarantee freshness. The Burrata will last about a week, then it loses it's consistancy.. Not many Burrata mkers in this country

ODIN,


AS A FAN OF YOUR POSTS ,YOU NEED OVERHAULING OF YOUR POST ,NEED REFRESHING AND NEW IDEAS ......STAY A WAY FROM VALLLA AND BOTTOMS UP....LOOK FOR A NEW STYLE ...........

PS...... YOU CAN LEARN A LOT FROM READING DD POSTS .

DD,


I EAT THOSE SMALL FRESH MOZZARELLA FOR YEARS ,THEY R HERE IN BOSTON EVERY WHERE ,I WAS AMAZED THAT EVERY RESTURANT CALLING THEM BURATA NOW....

Planet of the apes movie sucked. Real Bad.

ValHalla and a Bottom's Up to you Sir!

IN BOSTON IT STARTED RAINING AND PEOPLE ACT LIKE THE END OF THE WORLD LIKE NY .....WE ARE LUCKY WE WE DON'T LIVE IN FL OR THE CAROLINAS ,,,,,,,,,,,,,

YOUTUBE CHANGES IT'S LOGO EVERY MONTH TO STAY FRESH AND ODIN'S POSTS STAYS THE SAME FOR YEARS .......BURATA .

Darryl,

How long ago did you hook up the suckling pigs for the wedding party.

I'm asking becasue I was curious as to how big they were.

I read your original "suckling" post about a week ago or so. That's what made me think to include a suckling in my pig roast party(thanks BTW)this year. When I checked with my neighbor, the smallest one he had was around 50 pounds.

Apparently the sucklings grow pretty fast.

I don't want any crying in here during the game.
Mando that goes double for you.

ANOTHER QUESTION..... THE SUCKLING PIG ,DOES IT APPLYS TO ANY PIG OR JUST OF CERTAIN AGE ?

Just wanted to say to you that you SUCK.

Out loud And Very Often.


Pal.

Oregon,
My last post was for YOU.

...Odin. The pigs were a little over 25 lbs.. Those IMO are the most desirable. 50 lbs is pretty large for what I would consider a suckling pig, but to each their own. We halved them and cooked them in an open pit with dripping pans underneath. Sea salt, rosemary sprigs to baste with the fat, and pepper. Then the last 20 minutes rub the skin with an herb paste so it doesn't burn...After we broke them down just some sherry vinegar, and a little of the roasting fat...dinner.

Aloco..I thought, and could be wrong that a suckling pig was considered a pig that was less then 30 lbs..Not 100 percent. I think the term suckling pig perhaps is a term that was adopted by restaraunts to put a higher price on the menu..Could be wrong.

All right, I love the 'Phins as much as anybody, and more than most. I was born the year of their undefeated season, and when I take an oath I put my hand on my copy of "My Life in Football" instead of a bible. 'Nuff said.

My take on it is this. Yes, we have an elite receiver, a great slot receiver, a true deep threat speed wise (reminds me of Ginn, which I don't know whether to celebrate or mourn, have to see him actually catch a ball first), and we now have a rb with some real moves and speed (now let's see his durability).

Thomas however does not look like he's going to live up to his promise, and LJ hasn't shown fans anything worth seeing since he ran behind one of the best O-lines in the history of football (KC '05 & '06). Hell, put Willie Roaf and the rest of that line in front of me, and I could rush for 1500 yds and 20 td.

Still our weakest links before the season were QB play, and, self appointed best or not, our secondary. Sure they were good cover corners, but they looked like they were afraid of the ball, not hungry for it. How many picks did they have again? Two, and not two each, two between them.

As far as Henne, at first I was pissed we didn't pick up Orton, as he would have been a nice middle ground between the clean smart play of Pennington and the strong arm of Henne. Orton doesn't have a cannon, but it's stronger than Pennington's and he is damn smart and consistent. Henne has two problems, he never seemed to put the ball where a receiver could make a play after the catch, and he somehow over two years could not learn how to throw a touch pass. It was all fastballs, all the time. Brian Hartline somehow managed through feats of superhuman body control and quickness to be the one receiver on the team to make plays after the catch. And then there were the interceptions, ohhhhhh the interceptions.

In the first preseason game it looked like more of the same to tell you the truth. Bad throws, bad decisions, ugly dumb football. BUT in the second game he actually showed some dynamism and showed me he could throw something other than a fastball, and could get a ball to his receivers where they would not get killed after the catch and have a chance get up-field with it.

Reservations, sure, it was the second preseason game, and we were playing Carolina, aka the new Detroit, who have not been able to pressure a passer since the departure of Peppers. We'll have to see if Henne's game two performance was a result of growth on his part, or because he had all day and no one in his face. Hell, I can throw a pretty ball when I'm out playing catch with my son, and I'm not getting paid an NFL salary.

Call me hopeful, but with reservations. Like someone said, we'll see on Sept. 12th where we stand in comparison to a top-notch team. We'll also see a little tonight, as you can bet Henne will see a lot more pressure from the Bucs than the Pussycats could muster.

Go 'Phins!!!!

Did someone mention Burrata? Mmmmmmmmmm, best fresh Mozz ever. <3
