« Dolphins one quarter from their third consecutive win | Main | Some thoughts to last you seven days »

Fins escort Bills to woodshed, administer whipping

This was a complete victory as the 35-8 score suggests.

The defense extended its streak of quarters without allowing a touchdown to 12. The offense rolled up four TDs in the first half to make this a walk before the second half was played. Matt Moore threw three touchdown passes and had a 133.3 rating.

And the special teams got a blocked punt and touchdown when Lex Hilliard recoverd a block in the end zone.

Complete.

Total.

Stampede of Buffalo.

The Dolphins have won three consecutive game. They are 3-7. They travel to Dallas to play the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

yg,

Exactly!! Pouncey isn't getting a lot of credit but he's really stepped up his game the past few games. This kid gets it. RT is a mess and I'm still not crazy on Carey but Pouncey is doing a really nice job. You always know the centre's doing a nice job when he's not being talked about and Pouncey is doing a very nice job. Funny that all those people who claimed he couldn't played centre in the NFL have disappeared.

There's C o o n in the Wood Pile!

To borrow a phrase from Armando, it's BAD people, VERY BAD!

All you need to do is read between the lines a little.
-----------------------------------------------

Armando Salguero:

This is the last post on this blog for seven days. I am on hiatus until November 28. So this blog is on hiatus this week, including Thursday's game at Dallas. Not my choice. Not any sort of suspension or personal issue. Just business that I've been told not to discuss here with readers.

Translation:

A resurgent Dolphins are poised to face America's Team, another team that has been playing very well as off late. Of all days, on the NFL's biggest, most storied tradition: Thanks Giving Day Football!

Yet the top Brass at the Herald have decided to give it's resident Phins Sportswriter a "Hiatus"? At this particular time?

BAD people, VERY BAD!

WTF does that mean? Armando has admitted he's ready, willing and available. This game and it's lead up should be a sports media extrvaganza! Yet it's at this time that Mando's "Employers" have decided to make a "business decision" and give him a weeks hiatus?

A "Business Decision" that he was told NOT to discuss with his fans? What could it possbly be? Why would Armando comply with the "no talk" decree?

When you consier the timing of this curious "Hiatus", it becomes mytifyingly incredible!

I don't have the answers, but I can tell you this, it's BAD peope! VERY BAD!
----------------------------------------------

Salguero:

Anyway, I'm not going away. You can still listen to me on my radio show, Armando and the Amigo, through Wednesday. And while there will not be a live blog here during the Dallas game, I will be live on twitter. My twitter account belongs to me and not The Herald.

Translation:

This is a most curiously worded paragraph, it deserves much scrutiny.

First of all, when was the last time we didn't have a live blog during a game? When you consider it's a Thanksgiving Day Game, it must be BIG.

Secondly, He's not going away? Ah, who said he was? What is he NOT telling us an why? Why does this final paragraph take on such a sarcastic and hostile tone towards the Herald(ie: My twitter account belongs to ME and NOT the Herald)?

He tells us he's not going away and then immeadiately mentions his "OTHER" job. Except, he ominously adds "THROUGH WEDNESDAY"! Since when does his Radio Show only run through Wednesday?

I don't know the schedule of his Radio Show, maybe it has always only broadcast through Wednesday. Either way, if you read between the lines, it looks and sounds like Armando's long time run, covering the Phins for the Herald could be in SERIOUS Jeopordy!
---------------------------------------------

I'm telling you guys, it's not like Armando to just leave us hanging like this. In the past, when it came to us and the blog, he has always kept us somewhat "in the know". He's always given us a Heads Up or a Warning when he goes on vacation or even takes some sick days. He knows how BIG this blog is(This place ROUTINELY ranks in the top 100 among Sports Blogs)he knows how important the "Following" is here. I'm telling you, something bigs going on and this is just NOT Armando Salguero's Style!

There's a C o o n in the Wood Pile and it's BAD people, VERY BAD!

Your Very Own, SERIOUSLY WORRIED, Odin!

PS: I'll be following his twitter updates very closely for any hints or clues. I have a few other supemely sneaky options as to finding out what's really going on. I'll be posting anything I come across and would appreciate all of you doing the same.

ValHalla!!!!

To do the "{PEEWEE) at home is one thing, to do it at a away game is a 15 yd penality. STOP THE PEE-WEE. LOL.

FPSFGS,

You dont get flagged for dance celebrations after a sack unless you either or excessive or do it right over top of him. Which is taunting.

The players have been versed in what they can and can not do. Im sure Odrick will be ok with his pee-wee herman. He hasnt been flagged yet remember.

Yesterday, Just saying hate to see a 10 yd sack turned into a 15 yard gain,Seen stupid things like it before., Just saying keep "Pee-Wee" in check.

Odinseye,

Now that you mention it, the answer could be right in front of us. Have you noticed that the only ad sponser on this entire page is the AT&T one?

There were more ad sponsers. They must be pulling out for some reason or the Herald is in renegotiations with them. Armando did say it was a "business decision".

The ad sponsers may have finally read the contents of these blogs and also found there exists blog trolls to generate fraudulent hits. Hit generations are directly linked to how much sponsers are charged to advertise here. I think theyve found out that they're being fraudulently "OVER CHARGED" because of the discovery of "BLOG HIT TROLLS".

Think about it!

FPSFGS,

Are you saying Pee-Wee still needs to learn to keep it in his pants?

I remember the Idiot Marc Gastonough getting flagged after getting a sack and acting like a guy having a seizure in the 80s he got a sack but acted like a complete idiot and was flaged for 15 yards. What a Idiot.(But then again he did play for the Jets).

odinseye,

I'll keep careful watch to see if the Herald revamps the format of this blog in the near future. If they do, then I fell my assumptions are correct. You cant fraudulently create hits to overcharge your advertising sponsers.

Thats fraud no matter how you look at it.

LOL @ Gone.

Odin has been banned, armando thinks he has free speach. NOT.

FP4FGS,

But who's going to tell Odrick he needs to keep "Pee-Wee" in his pants?

FP4FGS,

On 2nd thoughts, its just gross to think any guy would keep "Pee-Wee Herman" in thier pants. I take that back!

Not me.. He's 6ft 7in..About a foot bigger then me. LOL

Pee-Wee Herman may like the idea of being in another guy's pants though.

Coalition, Do you have any contact with Michelle Bachman?

ALoco, have you seen Cuban here lately? He might be in the Gang of Disappeared. I haven't seen him in a long while.

Michelle Bachman is a M!lf and needs to be shagged.HARD.

DC, HE GOT KICKED OUT OF NY AND NOW LIFES WITH FLIPPER BREED IN INDIANA IN HIS TRAILER WERE THERES 2 INCHES OF CAT CAT FACAL.
(BUFFET OF NUGGETAS)

WTF is going on?! Holy crap I leave for a little bit and some big mystery pops up. This is very intriguing to say the least. Can't wait to find out what's going on. Hope everything is well with Armando, if he loses this gig the blog is going to go down hill FAST. I've seen other blogs lose their writers and turn into wastelands. I hope the Herald doesn't make the same mistake.

fp4fg's

eth plane much better than icu

have been reading rather than talking out my ass like I did all lockout and preseason (11-5! pah) optimistic a>>hole that i am

did play my part in the turnaround though by getting to see my fins in the flesh for the first time (25 yrs following) at the chiefs game - was over in chicago (i live in uk) and stuck a trip to kansas on the end

was sitting ther waiting for them to show me how to lose from 28-3 up but they played great, 4td's!!

keep up the good work bloggers

go fins!

You can't be serious? Its a typical budget move, cut costs over the holiday. If Armando gets canned, well guess what, it means they have no use for him or this blog. You will have to wash your own laundry too.

I suspect Armando may be suffering some backlash due to his anonymous sources and the manner in which the Vontae "Drunkie" Davis incident was reported upon.

I don't know how a week long hiatus could benefit the Miami Herald's budget.

Salguero is a salaried employee.

Here's Why I Say Draft RGII:

1. At least 8 td's 50yds or more
2. At least 4 rushing td's

So imo he walks into the league giving you at least 10 td's the other top 5 qb's wont give you right away. That's including Luck.

Even Luck doesnt throw as great a deep ball as RGIII. I feel RGIII is Marino-like in the ability to throw deep td's.

Odin did you see my posts to you regarding the blog situation?

If we get RGII, Bess will have to be replaced with a speedier slot reciever. Everyone of our recievers will have to be deep threats with RGIII behind center.

That's the only way we take full advantage of his beautiful deep ball touch. Bess has quickness but is grandma slow in a foot race.

odinseye

Reporters are supposed to break stories, I doubt they are giving him a lovely week off during holiday time as punishment. Seriously.

Even salaried employees get asked (ordered) to take unpaid breaks or even accept salary decreases. It happens. Also, the comment section could be closed for IT reasons. It could be a server issue, either cost or using the down time for maintenance/upgrades. There really are many possibilities.

Unless Armando disappears for good, I wouldn't read any more into this than its an unplanned holiday break for financial reasons.

I don't quite get why the comments would be disabled to reduce IT costs or because there is no one to monitor ---

otherwise, why isn't this blog entry's comments locked down as well? Who's monitoring this set of comments? Surely ain't Mando.

Or is it? Mando, you there?

OK, new topic:

The Suck for Luck Crew(and all of it's forms and incarnations).

You guys have been all over the Fans ever since our win streak began.

First of all, EVERYONE and their Bothers Sisters Momma's Baby's Daddy all know that the more games you win, the later you draft.

You're not really educating anyone throwing that little nugget of info around. Redundant!

The question is, how are you going to cut on and call others names for enjoying the wins?

1. The players are playing for the Coaches, the Teammates, Pride and probably mostly for their future careers. THERE'S NOTHING we as Fans can do about that.

2. The FO and the Coaching staffs are doing basically the same. THERE'S NOTHING we as Fans can do about that.

3. True Fans of this team SHOULD enjoy the wins when they come, REGARDLESS of draft position implications.

4. The theory that winning a few games will only guarantee perpetual mediocricy is a fallacy! Teams like the Steelers, Packers, Ravens and Patriots have been drafting in the later half of rounds for years and remain competitive. Other teams(Atlanta, Cowboys, Bears)have drafted mid rounds and greatly improve.

5. A first round pick has almost the exact same odds of being a bust as a second or even third.

There's an endless amount of examples of late round gems(Brady(6th round), Shannon Sharpe(7th), Leon Lett(7th), Rodney Harrison(5th), etc, etc)

There's examples of the late FIRST round gems that were passed over like Marino. Then there's all the first round STRAIGHT UP busts!

Having said that, I'd like to point out what I think sucks the most out of that Suck for Luck mentality.

1. Hoping your FAVORITE team loses every week. All implications aside, how much FUN is THAT?

2. At what point is it acceptable to start cheering again and hope for wins? Do we have to have that miserable loser mentality for 1 season? 2 or 3? Until we win a Super Bowl? How long will you Boo your own team for winning?

Yeah, that's just what I want to do, week in and week out, year after year, just sit around and curse my Coaches, my players and my team for trying to win games, Woo Whoooo! That's some kind of existence right there.

Especially when you consider the fact that these guys are going to do EVERYTHING they can to win every game whether we like it or not.

After all, THERE'S NOTHING, we as Fans can do about it. So go ahead, sit there in front of your computers and TV's and curse your favorite team EVERYTIME they win a GAME!

Just leave me out of it though, because I'll be cheering away, drinking Beer and trying to teach my Pit Bull Mastiff Debo how to HIGH FIVE everytime we win a Game!

ValHalla!!!!

wth is going on here? Has Armando gone nuts? The Herald? What costs? It is well known all over the World, that owners of successful Blogs and in this case The Miami Herald, profit economically according to the # of "hits" the pages of said receive. It is also most probable, that Teams $often the newspapers to go with their view of "things". So? What costs?


Odin did you see my posts to you regarding the blog situation?

Posted by: yesterday's gone | November 21, 2011 at 05:32 PM


Yes I did and I think it's a very good THEORY!

It'd be pretty ironic if the Blog Hit Brothers put the kabash on the Blog once and for all!

They FVCK this blog up all the time, now they might've FVCKED it up for GOOD!


Armando, since we are shut out of your last post, which is ridiculous since we pay for this service, are you allowed to even answer us here? Interestingly enough you said you'd be on your twitter account for the Dallas game since the account belongs to you and not The Herald. Something ain't right in Hoboken!

Arrrmando rocked the Boat(at least it rocked me) with that last (closed to comments)entry. So? That's his opinion and only the Future can determine if he is right, wrong or in between(most probable). Still, there are excellent Cruceros to Bahamas to relax.

Anybody tweet Mando?

-Devil, I doubt it too, it was just some theories I was kicking around. Thought I'd share them.

Even salaried employees get asked (ordered) to take unpaid breaks or even accept salary decreases. It happens. Also, the comment section could be closed for IT reasons. It could be a server issue, either cost or using the down time for maintenance/upgrades. There really are many possibilities.

-I agree, I just thought the timing real strange at first. After reading your response though, I could see Armando even welcoming the "Break", spend quality time with the family and all for the holiday.

Unless Armando disappears for good, I wouldn't read any more into this than its an unplanned holiday break for financial reasons.

-What can I say, I got a suspicious mind, besides speculating can be FUN!-LOL.

I hope you're right and they're installing a better sign in system and automatic refresh!

If you're going to dream, dream BIG ;)

You guys know we can also post on Greg Cote's blog on this app right?

Costs...
When you post, where do you think your post goes? It goes to a server first. Then when you fetch a new webpage, that page first asks the server to send it all the latest posts.

Now, it 'could be' that each blog is handled by a different server. I have no way to know that. Just giving an example, its one less server to have running, and they do use energy.

It could be as well, since there is some software infrastructure required to handle the post from each new blog, they just forego writing that software due to time constraints with people being gone for a week.

Who knows, but I can easily come up with 50 more hypothetical situations.

If they were firing Armando and ending the blog...well they would just do it, not give him a week off and then do it.

Cote also covers the game.

More like your "Brain" is watered down with Alocohol or Morphine. Odin, Please help Armando and disappear.

Nah, Arrmando is resilient and he'll resurface here one of these days. By the way, I was very surprised at Chan Gaily's lack of preparation for our Game yesterday. A center that does not know how to snap the ball, the QB of course late with the ball and on top couldn't grip it and the receivers getting murdered back there. No wonder they laid down, I would have done it sooner. Apparently, we are not the only ones with a "questionable" Coach.

Cotes a bigger tool then Odin. Just saying.

Odin, it's ok buddy, I'm on your side!

Coalition, cote has a bigger tool than Odin? Or is a bigger fool?

LOL At REDsky, Cote and Odin are both a tool of the NWO.

So you got another dog.

Well the eurphoria will be over Thursday when we are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Then it will be back to when is Sparano getting fired.

***This Just In***

Salguero Subpoenaed Before the Grand Jury
------------------------------------------
Believed to be in Protective Custody
------------------------------------------

Reports out of South Florida are indicating that the Miami Dolphins have a scandal of their own brewing.

Anonymous sources within the organization have told this reporter of allegations made against Tony SpOrano for alledgedly abusing young player(s) within the teams lockeroom facility.

While early reports have not been verified, it is believed Miami Herald Sports Writer Armando Salguero inadvertently witnessed some of the alledged abuse committed by SpOrano against his young player(s).

According to Grand Jury Testimony given by Salguero, he witnessed Coach SpOrano cornering a very young player in the teams training facility.

The player, completely dishelved was cowering in the corner of the lockeroom and apparently begging for assistance. Salguero unequivocally states he heard the unamed player screaming, "Help Me, Help me" and "Please, SOMEBODY make him STOP!"

SpOrano has vehemently denied these allegations and reportedly replied:

"Ah.....this thing.....um.....ah.....you know.........wasn't ah, THAT kind of thing."

"You see, playbooks and the things I was trying to......you see wasn't.......you know.......all the complicated stuff that ah, goes into these types of things are..............."

"Back that.....ah.....up, it was.....because.....you know, minus plays vs. plus plays times the square root of the number of snaps per se......and quarters.....you know........"

Interstingly enough, SpOrano's denial were cut short and charges of Psychological Abuse have been filed by the States Attorneys Office.


What can I say, I got a suspicious mind, besides speculating can be FUN!-LOL.

ROTFLMAO-You're EXPOSING yourself.........wait for it......WAIT............AGAIN!

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

NONE of us are surprised that you would be against a "New Sign In System"

You wouldn't like THAT at ALL, would you ;p

Very disaapointed to see the Stadium mostly empty with the Team playing this well. There is nothing more you can ask of an Athlete but to give it his all, win or lose, and these Players are giving their maximum effort. Sad.

OSCAR!

Give it YOUR all!

The Buffalo win was EXTRA SWEET in my opinion.

The thing I like most was how the ENTIRE Defense seemed like they were giving it their all.

They were flying around all over the place. Putting Fitz on his A S S and knocking the snot out of all the Bills!

It was a good win but the Defense made me EXTRA PROUD!

PS: NO TD's in 3 games!

Are you KIDDING ME!!!!

You didn't answer me. You got another dog?

Another Dog?

What do you mean?

I've had "Debo" for almost two years now.

He's half Pit and half Bull Mastiff, not quite full grown but tipping the scales at 100 lbs.

Does it look like you, or you like him?

Why I feel I talking to self?

I find better things to do Myself!

I think I'll re-watch USC-Oregon!


Does it look like you, or you like him?

Posted by: oscar canosa | November 21, 2011 at 08:13 PM


Well, he's Big, Ugly and Scary Looking.............


So..........Yeah and Yeah!

great reality article up now from armando, guy hit it right no. winning hurts this franchise right now

dusty,

What is the team supposed to do? Lose on purpose? Break the law? Create a Black Sox scandal? Tell us what should they do?

testing, 1-2, testing

Should each player on the team jeopardize his career and risk his future on a cheating scandal? Intentionally losing games is cheating and illegal.
