« Fins next move: Gotta be a QB, right? | Main | Dolphins weigh Edwards, like their guys more »

Wednesday morn: Live practice blog here

Dang, it's hot, The Miami Herald has learned.

Here's other things the Herald has learned. Agent David Canter said on my radio show, Armando and the Amigo this morning, that the club has had zero contact with him about getting Paul Soliai signed to a longterm deal. Soliai, who counts $12-plus on Miami's salary cap, is a prime target for helping lower that cap hit if the team were to find enough confidence to get him signed longterm.

More on the salary cap front, RT Vernon Carey is here. That is an almost certain sign he accepted a pay cut. If he's not, well, you know that doesn't bode well.

The Dolphins are working at 11 a.m. today. It is one day before the team is completely on the field in that Miami has upwards of a dozen players who are not yet allowed to practice based on the fact they were either traded to the team and signed new contracts or were signed as free agents.

Believe it or not the Dolphins defense, which normally wears aqua jerseys in practice, is wearing orange jerseys. The offense is in its traditional white.

I'm wearing shorts. I'm also headed to the comments section for the live practice blog. See you there.

Anyway, the

Reggie Bush is one such player. He switched numbers today, giving Matt Moore the No. 8 he was wearing lately and taking No. 4 instead. Bush will not wear No. 8 or 4 anyway. He's a RB and those are not allowed.

Marc Colombo will wear No. 71 and DJ Jones is wearing No. 65.

FUNNY POST @ 4;53 PM..lol

Craig your buddy ltcdolphin says your using my screen name to post. Hope you tell him it ain't so.

But Joe, we finished equal or close give or take to all of those teams in standings. Thats where I am confused. I am out tonight, we will catch up tomorrow.

Later all.

JT has seen this all before. The defense is stellar, one of the best in the league, but they have to drag the sorry offense every game. They get the offense out of trouble ALL game, but if they make 1 mistake, game over, Dolphins lose.

Not fair to the defense.

Edwards? Orton? This isnt fantasy football where you can build your team, and earn points.

Catching-wise, and speedwise Edwards is a down grade from Bess, and Hartline. And Orton sucks. Henne will do better than Orton this year.

Stick with your own players dolfans.

i miss 0x80 AND HIS GREAT POSTS /////////////

Michael I don't know what school you went to but there is most certainly a word. Try dictionary.com and you will learn something. Oh this is much to easy.

THE STELLAR DEFENSE.......... MY FOOT ........1-7 AT HOME .

Poizen

Rarely does a QB have the luxury of everything around them perfect. Rarely do they have a super stud oline, super stud receivers and super stuf RB's. There are always weaknesses. A QB has to figure out how to work with what he has.

On a broken play, great QB's find a way to make a play. When do we ever see Henne make something happen on a broken play? On broken plays, Henne breaks too. It's really frustrating.

We didnt go 1-7 at home because of lack of defense, it was a lack of offense an st's debacle. LOL....

Joe I have to respectfully disagree. Every single time Bradys o-line under performs so does he. I've watched it more than once and even the announcers comment on, "well geez, don't blame Brady, his o-line is a revolving door today". Marino had an excellent o-line his entire career, the guy barely had to move back there and had feet of stone. So I disagree that any good qb will play well even with a bad o-line. There's no such thing as a qb that can succeed when the o-line stinks, the two go hand in hand.

Now with that being said it doesn't matter if our o-line is good or bad, Henne still makes the wrong reads. Last year our o-line was rated very high in the league on passing downs and Henne was still mediocre. Some would argue this was because we had Henning and a putrid running attack. I blame it on Henne. Marino never had a running game and still succeeded.

Bottom line, the FO BLEEEEWWWWWWWWWW IT by not getting us a veteran QB to compete with Henne. Absolutely blew it. This season will be lost unless the light all of the sudden turns on for Henne. I'm not holding my breath.

My mistake, but practice is a noun, and in this context practice is the correct form.........too easy,.

Some People think that by complainig they will obtain what they want. Well, they are in for dissapointment.

ltcdolphin, why do want to continue, are that much of an idiot little girl. BOO HOO.

Simon. There really was no coherent ol play in front of heene. That could cause jitters. When the ol was good henne played decently. When they got banged up his play went downhill. There were times he got hit by a dl that got to him unblocked.

DB ,

IN ALL OF THE 7 GAMES WE LOST AT HOME....THE DEFENSE WAS A (( STELLAR DEFENSE )).......... WHO'S THE CRAZY ONE HERE ?

Also, we didn't play a game yet ALoco. Last year, our defense was good, not stellar. This year, I'm predicting stellar.

However, this is 2011. Elite teams still score on stellar defenses. Defense can't win us anything alone. They need help. That's you Mr. Daboll. HELP!!!

Or should I say little boy.

That makes TWO of my posts that disappeared today. WTF is going on?

So Michael you looked it up. Great. See you crying on your last post. Is there such a word as practise???

2010 special teams seemed more horrible at home than away too. Remember the st's blockers whiffing on guy blocking punts leading to scores. Remember st's tackles or non tackles leading to huge gains for the opposition?

Aren't you going to be late for your trash collection job.

You still used it incorrectly. Poor poor ltcdolphin.

Now that vernon is our rg, I bet garner beats colombo at rt

DB..... THANKS FOR REMINDING ME OF THE ST ....DO YOU CONSIDER THE ST PART OF YOUR (( STELLAR DEFENSE )) OR NOT ?


MIKE NOLAN.......OVER RATED AS DANSBY ......

And you were wrong about Sun Life. Your point is.

LouD,

Either you're using a banned word, or hitting refresh instead of post. Ive hit refresh meaning to hit post many times. LOL...

Henne is being outplayed by an UNDRAFTED FREE AGENT rookie.

Come on, it's his 4th year already.

Not used incorrectly and you keep flopping like a fish in the box about your original post.

DB............. YOU R RIGHT, WHAT ABOUT OUR (( STELLAR ST DEFENSE ))....WE TALK AND BLAME HENNE FOR EVERY THING....IT'S UNFAIR AND TRAITORS DO THAT .........

I am because you were dead wrong. And you made a big deal out of, and I used the word in the right context, you know what context means right.

I can't believe these guys know their jobs depend on our record and they are perfectly happy going with Henne again this season even though he has still shown terrible inconsistency so far. Didn't they bench him last year? Are they seriously this stupid? I guess they all want to be fired, it's the only explanation. Parcells made these guys robots. I thought they would change when they took over, thought Parcells was holding them back but apparently he has brain washed them. They OVER THINK every signing. They should've just signed someone to challenge Henne. ARE THEY SERIOUSLY GOING TO TELL US THAT MOORE AND DEVLIN ARE THE CHALLENGE?!! That's worse than he had in Penny and Thigy. They said they were going to upgrade, where is it?!!! If we don't get a serious challenge for Henne I will finally be done sticking up for this regime. I am currently getting my torch and pitchfork ready, no new qb comes to the team and I suggest the rest of you do the same! BS!!

fins72,

I dont really the reports are indicating Devlin's fully indicating he's outplaying Henne. As much as they seem to indicate Henne's not outplaying Devlin.

Im willing to more believe Henne's not outplaying Devlin. To me it suggests Henne needs to seriously begin to mash the gas!

Thanks Dying. Probably a banned word. Is there a list somewhere?

LOUD.... JUST DON'T USE BAD WORDS .

LOCO-

You're being negative about our defense? And Mike Nolan? Really?

You are LOCO!

DB-
Either way...Henne should be smoking Devlin by a mile, right?

ALoco,

Ive never blamed Henne for everything. I post the most important criteria I would like to see from him. Ive yet to see it.

I would like to see Henne make at least 3-5 plays in crucial moments when it seems things are going to hell around him. I would like to see any begin to have at least some success in the 2 minute offense.

These are not abnormal things to ask when trying to fully access your "starting qb's" growth and development.

Anybody that has gone to the game have a positive view of Henne? Wonder whats the new scheme, and whats the old Henne?

Also I've heard some good things about Devlin from the media and fans and I will warn to be careful, he's playing against the third team D, many of whom will be cut before the season. He's going to need a couple years at least. But for the love of cripes can't we just get lucky one time and have a QB come out of nowhere to surprise the whole league and lead this team to some wins? Please God, please. I never ask for anything! Can't we just get lucky once? auuuuuggghhhhh.

FIN72.......

I THOUGHT FOOTBALL IS A TEAM SPORT NOT QB,OFFENSE SPORT.......


NEXT TIME I AM WATCHING A GAME ,I WILL IGNOR OUR STELLAR DEFENSE AND OUR STELLAR ST . (( PATS GAME LAST YEAR AT HOME ))..

Thanks ALOCO. What's up my man? I'm the artist formally known as NYScott, hope you're having a great summer.

LouD,

Unfortunately no one know the entire list of banned words until trying to post them. During the Ireland thing I found p*rostitute is banned. So when using a banned word you have to add a symbol or respell it to make it post.

Just like "b!tch" or "biatch"! LOL...

DB........ GOOD POST @ 5;20 PM ...AGREE BUT REMEMBER HIS NUMBERS ARE BETTER THAN BREES AND MANNING AT THIS POINT ,ALSO DEVLIN IS A COPY OF THIGPEN ,WATCH .

Let's hope the lights goes off for Henne.

LOCO_
I'm just saying we need ALL 3. You said the defense and Mike Nolan were not good. The defense is Great. The offense for 10 years now, and the ST last year have been holding us back.

LOUD IS NYSCOTT??? THAT'S ANOTHER POSTER I MISS GREATLY READING .......NOW I AM HAPPY YOU R BACK ,,,,,,,,

Oh ok LouD, so you are NYScott.

I have never believed this stuff until recently. Could it be that Parcells so terrorized the players that some rebelled and some became robotic? Hmmm...

LouD-

I feel you. We had our 1 bit of QB luck the year Penny fell in our laps. One AFC East title and a quick exit from the playoffs. Now we're back to ground zero.

Sucks doesn't it?

Oh man really? How is p*rostitute a bad word, they printed it all over the Herald after the Ireland incident. Stupid bureaucratic bull****.

@ 5;27PM....... NYSCOTT IS BACK .lol

Yeah I'm NYScott. Thought a name change was in order. New year, new outlook, same old Dolphins so far. :) Thanks Aloco!

Yes it does finfan72. Just once we need some luck. That's all I can count on at this point.

fin72,

I always preached Pennington was a blessing and curse at the same time. I always felt a team 1-15 the prior year had any business drafting like 15th the following season. I felt like it stunted our development to gain the upper-echelon draft talent we still severely need.

Yes, we were 11-5 and afc east champs, but that was probably the worst 11-5 and afc championship team in fins history. Plus a lot of lucky things sort of landed in our laps. Penny wasnt the only one.

Hint - If you want to cuss, just leave off the first letter.

rostitute hore enis agina

Now you can all go uck off.

You are because you don't know your words or how to write clearly in context to the blog. Get over yourself. So which is correct on dictionary.com practise or practice??

Apparently Orton was named starter today for Denver. Really they'd have been crazy to let him go, especially on the cheap.

Okay people I'm out for a bit but will check back soon. Good to see the regulars and I look forward to talking some Phins football this year with everyone. Hopefully the Jets fans will stay away, they wouldn't like me when I'm angry!

LOCO-
quit drooling over Henne and Bush and give our D some credit!
