Brian Daboll on red zone, JT on kicking @ss

Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has one glowing-in-neon issue with his unit and that, obviously, is Miami's red zone offense.

Yes, the Dolphins have been in the red zone a bunch so far this season -- 10 times in two games. That's very good. But they have scored only six times in those trips and that's bad. The 60 percent scoring rate is tied for 31st in the NFL.

The stat is important because the Dolphins are searching for a win and wins normally come down the highway of more points. So the topic of improving the red zone offense is something of a passion now for Daboll. And this video of Daboll speaking to reporters today makes that plain:

Did you catch that last part? No, not the part about the Colt McCoy biography. The part about Charles Clay.

Clay, Miami's rookie tight end/fullback, has not played yet this season as he's been recovering from a hamstring injury. But that might change this week. If he is active, and I believe he will be, Clay will have a package built for him.

Look for it.

You guys will remember I can show you only a limited amount of video. But audio? I can give you tons of unlimited sound.

I present to you today's Jason Taylor's press conference with the media.

He discussed his stance on where the team is. He talked about his disappointment that his talk about upgrading the team's practice habits, which I wrote about in Tuesday's Miami Herald, became public. (Sorry big guy, but news is news.) Taylor also made a very, very interesting point on what he thinks is going to happen this weekend in Cleveland:

"I always have a good feeling," Taylor said. "I believe we're going to win every game. And I believe we're going to get in this airplane Saturday and go up to Cleveland and kick somebody's ass."

For the Dolphins sake, that somebody should probably be wearing a Browns jersey and helmet.

oscar how old r u

Too bad that Ross isn't the guy who owned Blockbuster video. We'd be guaranteed to get this guy to sell the team toute suite!

mr. roberts, your post at 2:09pm is the post of the day as far as I'm concerned. You're right, were Mike Nolan to take over this team halfway through the year and have some success he'd very likely be the Head Coach going forward and no thorough search would happen. I'm not saying that's the worst thing that could happen but it's what the Cowboys and Vikings did with their coaches and I'm not convinced it gave them the very best candidates for the job. And I read someone on the other blog mention Coughlin as the next Head Coach. Please God NO!!!.....

But, of course, being very young, we disregarded that and married 2 Cuban women who have made our life xxxxxxx

OSCAR IS 74 YEARS OLD .YOUNG AT HEART .

Oscar,

I always thought Jewish women a bit strange. Don't get me wrong, I'm not racist or anything, especially when it comes to women. Just strange though.

In the throes of passion they didn't like to be called by the good old American standards.

They always liked it when I called them "Dirty Little Gold Diggers"!

I sometimes wonder what became of those Jewish girls. Probably sharing our same destiny.

DB.............. 69 YEARS OLD
CUBAN............. 64 YEARS OLD
OSCAR.................... 74 YEARS OLD


STILL THEY SPEAK AND POST AS 30 YEArs old .


odin............. 54 years old to 61 years old

Fu-k you, odin.

Now that Oscar has told the blog he is a decepited old fool...

Now I feel bad about my earlier post....

Fu-k you, odin.

Posted by: oscar canosa | September 22, 2011 at 07:07 PM

Somebody's coming on to me. Thanks, I'm flattered......but ah, NO!

For one thing, I don't swing that way. More importantly though, you're OLD! I mean old-OLD, Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!

ray You had me agreeing with you on all your points except when it came to Ginn. Every person on this blog wanted Ginn out of town. People were clamoring to just cut him. Remember that. You're playing the result when you yourself was for getting rid of him. So don't even mention that one.

If you think I'm gonna let you off the hook tonight, you have another thing coming. You pissed me off, Man!

ODIN ,YOU PLAYED WITH A MUSIC GROUP IN THE 70'S ....ADD 37 YEARS TO THAT PLUS YOU WERE 30 THEN,,,THAT MAKE YOU 67 BUT I GIVE YOU CREDIT FOR 8 YEARS...THEN YOU R 59 YEARS OLD ,YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY AND YOUNGER THAN OSCAR .

OSCAR,THE OLD MAN IS MAD AS HELL@ ODIN .LOL

glad ginns gone. that guy is horrible.

Hey Fidel Canosa!

I was going with the flow. Everybody crying how bad it is, whaaaaaaa, wehaaaaa whyhaaaaa!!!!

You started it by going personal.

Stop, back up and be MAN enough to apologize, then so to, will I.

Whassup? You Man Enough?!?!

Guys I'm on record as saying the Dolphins are going to win Sunday. I think we'll see a much better record from these guys on the road. I'll even be putting some money on them with my bookie.

I expect I'll be in the minority on this one but the fact that nobody is giving them a chance makes me feel better about there chances. I'll be on hear Monday eating my hat if they lose. Who's with me on this pick?

Jewish girls give the best head, hands down. They love it up. They aren't doing you a favor, they are doing themselves a favor at our benefit.

I knew this was coming! I never should have gave you enough info ;) You a ss(affectionately speaking of course).

I was a 15 year old runaway when I started working for them as a roadie. I was 16 when I started PLAYING for them. Do the math.

Man, odin, I'm being serious.

The new offense has been the one positive so far. OK, apart from the fact that Henne has to run for his life on most passing plays.


Man, odin, I'm being serious.

Serious about what? Come on Old Dude, you started it, just apologize and I will too.

I agree Captain, our O-LINE sucks, sucks, SUCKS!

Well said!

GRUMPY OLD MEN ....OSCAR AND ODIN ............

All( as All I say) is absolutely True. Those Jewish girls(and many non-Jewish ones) came Downtown seeking us young Cubans. Finally, when we had cars, we went seeking for them, but not only at Miami Beach High. You dig?

What else can we do but jam and jive? We here in Miami continue to be in a lock out, you know.

We are heading in to week 3...and JT has made the blog headline...maybe....3 times.....

@ this pace....we will have had more than out fill of JT by seasons end.....

then unofficial over/under is 12...for JT related blogs....

anybody care to take that action....

Nice going Armando, you got your Amigo Chris Perkins in there asking questions.

that was some stuff guys, keep it going never laugh so hard...

Listening to Thanks for the Memories, but that's Pandora's Radio, isn't it?

USE A 5 WIDE SET

On my I-phone, connected to my Bose speaker system, of course.

If they can't beat Cleveland then they are a lost, shameful group. They'll have a better chance if Tony Noodle Brain doesn't make the trip.

Always aim to please, always.

Actually, I'm more into the altercations between Jimmy Smith and Stanley Turrentine.

Who are we kidding- we are waiting fro one guy Chrales Clay to make our red zone offense go. Marshall, Hartline, Morre, Bush, Thomas, all those first round picks on the O-line and we need Clay. We don't have enough practice and timing, these guys have been together for a couple of years in the passing game. If I was Ross............

BTW, where is odin? I am awful tired, but tomorrow, I will be on your A-s, Man.

WC 2.0

Did anyone get Home's score prediction for the Brown's game?

I'm stll here!

You wanna go? Why wait till tomorr......umph......tomorrow?

I'm ready right.....snrk.....Zzzzz.....WHAT? Who said that?

I'm telling you, you, ah......um, yeah, as I was saying.......I'm t-t-telling y-you......Z......snrk.......ZZZzzz............

@Craig M

I have got a good feeling about Sunday as well.

If we can come out and start scoring in the redzone, I think that this season is far from lost.

KRIS,

ARMANDO GOES TO JT HOUSE ONCE A WEEK TO EAT DINNER .
