It'll be 6-3 Sean Smith vs. 6-5 Vincent Jackson

SAN DIEGO -- Vincent Jackson is a beast.

He's 6-5 and 230 pounds and runs like a deer. That's bad.

Sean Smith is something of a beast himself. He's 6-3 and can jump to the moon.

So on Sunday it will be Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith covering chargers receiver Vincent Jackson. All the time, practically.

The Chargers expect the Dolphins to match up Smith on Jackson and follow him all over the field. The Dolphins, I'm told, will oblige by doing exactly that. At least that's what a club source is telling me is the plan.

Obviously, plans can change once the game begins. If the matchup is a loser for the Dolphins they would be wise to abandon it. But the idea initially is to let Smith show what he's got.

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano was coy about the idea Friday.

“Well, we’ll see, you just got to watch the game, I guess," he said kiddingly. "Are you going to the game? Just watch it, you got to watch it on TV? You’re going to miss good weather I guess.”

I'm in the nice weather. It's nice, The Miami Herald has learned.

With Smith on Jackson, the Dolphins can do a lot of things behind him. They can roll coverages to help Smith out. They can double Jackson behind Smith.

I'm not sure that will be the case every single down. You see, with Vontae Davis not playing on Sunday, Nolan Carroll will be matched against Malcolm Floyd much of the time. [Davis is having a season from heck as he'll miss his second consecutive game after failing to finish either of his first two games with various issues. The hamstring is keeping him out of this one. Koa Misi (neck) and Daniel Thomas (hamstring) are also out.]

This matchup of Dolphins DBs versus San Diego WRs is a study in who is least injured. As you know, Davis is out for Miami. Well, Jackson is managing an abdomen injury and did not practice at all on Wednesday or Thursday. And Floyd has a groin injury and also didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday. Both are listed as questionable.

if we try passing 60 times, we will lose in the time of possession battle, the defense will be worn out, and we will lose by 30 points.

passing 60 times almost guaranteed to result in falure.

NOW IT IS 30-3 THE CAGARY STOMPERS HAVE SCORE AGAIN AND THEY LOOK VERY GOOD.///

TUBE OF GLUE WHO IS REALLY ODINSEYE WHY ARE YOU EVEN ASKING SOME THING THAT STUPID? CANADIA IS ATTACH TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NORTH OF US. I WILL GO TO A GAME IN HAMITON ALSO.

Every single day the dream girl in my imagination looks more and more like Chad Henne. Love is beautiful.

Where's the cap? Uh, never mind I guess.

Stillhardcore,
Henne called the audible in the NE game and threw the td to Hartline.
In fact the whole offense put up production because we threw 50 times.
Against Houston we threw 40 times and everyone's production went down.
Against Cleveland we threw 30 times, down again.
Myteriously Henne was 15/19 for 190 yards in first half, why did we only throw ten times in 2nd half? 4 of the throws in the last 60 secs?

Who wants to watch a game that is 30-3?

NOW IT IS 37-3 CAGARY THEY ARE VERY DOMINATING OVER THE SASKATEWAN TEAM. ,. ODIN YOU MUST WATCH HOW GOOD THE CANADIA FOOTBALL IS. IT IS MUCH BETTER THAN THE NFL AND THERE ARE NOT THE FAT LAZY PLAYERS AND FANS LIKE IN AMERICA. THE SCORE ISNT WORSE THAN ALL THE VERY BORING COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAMES ON TV. WHO CARES ABOUT THAT EXCEPT DUMMYS//

ALoco - Where the hell is Cagary?

Also, do they have trailers with cat poo in Canadia?

Vincent Jackson may "run like a dear"
but he also
DRINKS LIKE A FISH !!!!


Lets GO SEAN!

Lets GO SEAN!

Uh, is that runs "likes your wife?"
Come hear dear?

I would think he runs more like a "DEER."

Every single day the dream girl in my imagination looks more and more like Chad Henne. Love is beautiful.

POST OF THE DAY!!!!!!

We will see who right come sunday.

Odinseye , Calm down please.

Dear Sparano,

Please get on someone's face if:

- one of our defenders misses a tackle
- one of our OL misses a block
- one of our players commits a penalty
- one of our players misses an assignment.
- one of our players makes a stupid mistake
- our offense doesn't score inside the red zone
- our kicker misses an easy FG

You get my point, right?.. Or just act like you're pissed off, and throw your headphones or clipboard or something to the ground, and make faces, and curse... are you getting my point, Tony?

If all of the above don't work, please start fining players, Jimmy Johnson style.. :)

STOP BEING NICE TO THEM!!! you're a HEAD COACH!!!

These are not the 2007 Miami Dolphins. This Team is full of very good, young players who can beat ANY NFL Team on any given day. All they need is integration then consistency. If not tomorrow, you will see it several times during the Season.

EVERYONE IS MISSING THE SILVER LINING OF THIS WEEK'S CERTAIN LOSS TO THE CHARGERS:

ROSS WILL WHACK SPARANO!!

WE WON'T HAVE TO WITNESS ANY MORE OF SPARANO'S ASININE 'FAILURE' FISTPUMPS AFTER 85-YARD DRIVES THAT RESULT IN FG's!!

Mr. I.M.

Hope your right.

2007 > 2011
Cameron > Sparano
0 > Ireland

Aw this is a loss, lets keep it moving... Fins 10 Chargers 24.

CAGARY IS A CITY.., I AM NOT SUPRISE THE JOBLESS GANG OF DEFEAT DOESNT KNOW THIS BECAUSE ALLWAYS THEY ARE DRUNK AND VERY UNEDUCATED


TUBE OF GLUE WHO IS REALLY ODINSEYE WHY ARE YOU EVEN ASKING SOME THING THAT STUPID? CANADIA IS ATTACH TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NORTH OF US. I WILL GO TO A GAME IN HAMITON ALSO.

ALoco,

Tube of Glue is Fake Odinseye, Heh, heh!

Seriously ALoco, you know I don't play like that. I mess around and goof on people, but not like that. I only use the sign in name Odinseye, unless I make it plain and obvious. Like "Not Odinseye" or "Geronimo".

Besides, I know where Canada is. I'm about 30-45 minutes away from the Border. I can't even go into town without seeing Canadians EVERYWHERE! They like American Walmarts and Gas Prices. Everyday they come across the bridge to shop and fill up their tanks.

PS: Not much of a Canadian Fan, but the name STOMPERS ROCKS!

What city is Canada in? Is it close to Jacksonville?

Kris!

Where are you KRIS!

You can run but you CANNOT HIDE!

.....................................KRIS!!!!

2 over/under for Slaton fumbles.
2 over/under for Marshall drops
2 over/under for Henne INTs
7 point underdogs

Vegas line.

WHAT! ARE YOU MAKING FUN OF ME! Ooooooooooooooo, I am Soooooooooooooooo MAD! I'm steaming! I will destroy you, you BEADY EYE'D LITTLE RODENT!

I'm at the B&B in South Beach! You want somma DIS? Where you at PUNK!?!?

Tony must GO!

do you guys have any kind of a job ?

The Odinsider Presents:

**More Useless Predictions**

1. The O-line puts together it's best overall performance to date. They only give up 3 sacks, 3 knockdowns and 8 hurries.

2. Daboll pulls of a Master Game Plan allowing both Henne and Bush to shine.

3. Henne scrambles for 50 yards and throws for another 300. 2 TD's(neither to Marshall), 1 int.

4. Bush rushes for 60 yards and gets another 100 receiving. 1 TD.

5. The defense plays just good enough to make it a dogfight.

6. Wilson impresses again and Smith actually holds on too a pick!

Posted by: ALoco | October 01, 2011 at 08:56 PM


No, but a little closer to closing time, I'm heading down to the local watering hole and seeing if I can't find one.

If you know what I mean.................

We should do well against SD's terrible defense. They had trouble against Kansas City who are even worse than CleveLard

Sean Smith is softer than Charmen and is anything but a beast. Vincent Jackson will smoke him all day long tomorrow. Sean Smith couldn't catch hepatitis from Pamala Anderson if he tried for a month, and couldn't tackle a tackling dummy. He sucks

Maybe anywhere in-between both red zones

BRILLIANT!!!!

Jon...charmin isn't good TP man, when wiping it almost always rips, then one finger busts through and winds up hitting fhe brown balloon knot...horrible paper man...

iPhone app sucks...keeps deleting the entire thread

Jackson will be playing with an abdomen injury and Gates is out. If we can't hold them off at half strength, then there is nobody this team can beat.

Glad to feel the optimism on this blog!!! Karma!!!

Odin....

What would I be hiding from....

If your talking about the last blog.....i stand behind ALL that I posted.....

I will give you credit for acknowledgeing the post......because none of the other's did....

However in your response you changed the question....re-phrased it if you will.....

My statement was plain and simple.....give the FO some credit for showing some fore thought.....and signing a RB in anticipation that DT may not play....

You TRIED to phrase my statment as if I had accused you of bashing Slaton.....which Ironically YOU DID....but I didn't care about that.....i just wanted to see if you guys would give credit where/when it is due.....

I didn't think that would be so hard for you...considering you are HENNE'S BIGGEST CHEERLEADER AND ALL......

Last thing......

Its always funny to me when somebody who's personality is based on drinking.....accuses someone else of drinking.....and in a MOTHER TERESA scolding tone.....that is an lol if I ever read one........

Slaton?

ROFLMAO! Dunces! Fools! Nuff said!

Quit writing about this kid he is a no talent self proclaimed shut down corner. He gives up big play after big play and this paper still writes about him and how he is going to cover the other teams best players. LOL this kid can't cover anyone. Am I the only one that saw this idiot actually have a play on a long ball and then chooses to turn his back to the ball and jump up with his hands up with out even knowing where the ball was. The result was yet another long touchdown against the dolphins. Honestly any good corner would have turned the other way keeping his eyes on the ball and tried to make a play on it that way. Honestly if he had turned that way he may have been able to pick it off lol yeah right he would have messed that up too. He does it to us every week. Big play after big play. And this paper writes about this no talent ass clown as if he actually has talent. Hey Sean do us all a favor and retire that way we don't have to hear you talk about how good you are and hear you pretend to actually know what your doing out there. That play last week for a touchdown shows me that this guy has absolutely no ball skills and zero common sense when it comes to breaking up a pass. I dunno last i checked his job is to get between the ball and the man so if you know where the balls is and can see where the ball is going; why take your eyes off of it and turn it into a guessing game of where to put your hands. IDIOT IDIOT IDIOT!!!!!!!

Odin - Time to check your meds, bro. You're bipolar is cycling super fast now... one post you're manic; pumping up the fins, next post you're down all the way. Maybe you should add a mood stabilizer in there instead of self-medicating with alcohol and puss? Love you, bro.

Oh, will somebody please tell Tony Sp. that pleated pants are major fashion faux pas when worn by fat dudes? I don't care if he has lost half his body weight, he's still a vanilla moon pie and could at least dress it up. I mean, pleated khakis and a tent for a shirt? One word, Tony: Black. Wear it. It's thinning...

Another word: liposuction: it's thinning too. Plus a tummy tuck and a moob lift. And the hair? Either shave it or well, shave it, dude. Nothing pretty about fat, balding, old men. I hear Ginkgo Biloba (no, that's not one of your newest offensive linemen) will help that early onset dementia you've got going on. You know: that brain thing that makes you think you know what you're doing but really you're seeing a whole 'nother reality than everybody else?

And then there's the Folie A Deux - which basically means your mental illness is shared by the people closest to you: like Jeffy and half your players - especially Henne since he is now even starting to sound like you. Scary stuff huh? Two members of the Illiterati on one team? Thank goodness Joey Porter and Channing Crowder are gone or the local CVS would run out of lithium.

Tell me this quote about Reggie Bush doesn't mean Sparano is living in total denial:

"He can do a lot of jobs for you, but one of the jobs he has to be able to do is run with the football, and we're able to do that with him."

The guy in three games has 28 carries for 80 yards. Worst in his career.

So...you think that Sparano gets up in front of a microphone each day and tells the world his
most inner thoughts about his Football Team.

WOW.

ROTFLMAO ;)

Mother Teresa! Ha ha ha, glad I could help with a smile. They don't come easy lately!

If I could just punch Tony in the face just one FVCKING good time, I'm sure I wouldn't need the meds, the brew or anything else!

You pegged it man, I'm having a fvcking breakdown!

Still, it's comforting to know you still care!

ValHalla!!!!

What's that stench?

VT can suck a C!!! GO Dolphins!!!!

Your Mom's Panties.

Yo Momma's a Ho?

She use to be.

Ewwwww That Smell!

Can't You Smell That Smell?

I have one thought at 3:35 a.m.

Jason Taylor is kind of a jinx. I say jinx because I refuse to believe that there's a causal relationship between his presence on the Dolphins and their defense's woeful performance.

Still, it's hard not to notice the following:

Taylor's last year with the Dolphins before he left for Washington was 2007. The Dolphins were 1-15 in 2007. It was their worst season ever.

In 2008, when Taylor was not on the Dolphins, they had a quasi-miraculous 11-5 season.

Taylor comes back the next season (2009), and the Dolphins regress to 7-9.

Taylor leaves for the Jets the next season (2010), and, while the Dolphins stay at 7-9, their defense, statistically, becomes one of the best in the league.

Taylor comes back the next season (2011), and the Dolphins so far have one of the worst defenses in the league.

Again, I don't believe for a second that there is a causal relationship between Taylor's presence and the Dolphins' woeful performance, since Taylor, who used to be outstanding, is still pretty good.

Still, one can't help but notice that his presence seems to accompany the Dolphins stinking.


Sean Smith is 6'4. Size is all he has.
No technique, no instinct for the ball and he's the worst tackler on the team.

hope we can put sparano and ireland on the IR so they couldnt "play" the rest of the season.

jason taylor is a baller. sean smith plays very soft;avoids contact. they have reshad jones playing out of position because they gave away our FS(amaya) to the saints. reshad is a SS,not a FS. this regime is toast.

I'm just going to say it one more time: good job Miami not drafting Jimmy Graham. I'm so sick and tired of ireland staying away from canes players. Ask Baltimore if canes players are any good. Vernon Carey and that's it? Ass.

have to be careful here cause norv turner is the worst coach outside of miami in the nfl. he will always let horrible teams play them close. but we should take another step today towards cowher and luck. sd 27-17

Ahh, the anticipation of Battle has always been exciting.

You're probably right dusty. But something feels different today.

I was going to a movie with my wife yesterday, running late, and got pulled over for speeding. Cop saw my license, and it was expired. He could have given me a speeding tix. Could have given me a tix for driving on an expired license. Could have even arrested me.

HE LET ME OFF!!! Just said my wife had to drive.

Things are looking up. Weeks past, if I didn't have bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. But the tide is turning. WE.MAY.WIN!!!!
