NFL keeps hands out of YB's wallet, but fines Colombo

Strong safety Yeremiah Bell admittedly expected bad news from the NFL this week. Nobody thought anything about Marc Colombo getting the news instead.

But that is precisely what happened Friday when Bell was not fined by the NFL, but the Miami offensive right tackle was fined $7,500 for hitting an opponent late and getting an unnecessary roughness penalty agains the Chiefs last Sunday.

Bell finished Sunday's victory over Kansas City with a trio of penalties -- a personal foul for a hit along the sideline, an unnecessary roughness for a hit out of bounds and an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for some post play chippiness with a Kansas City player.

The number of flags and the hit would almost certainly translate to a fine, Bell thought.

Bell thought wrong. The NFL tells me Bell has not been fined.

Colombo, meanwhile, plowed into his opponent late after a running play. Yes, it drew a flag and drew the fine today.

I'm back.



Armando,

I want an updated injury report.

Specifically in regards to Gates(groin).

I'm predicting Daboll uses Marshall, Fasano and Clay to open up some deep passing opportunities for Gates!

You know the old, "If they don't bite when their puppies" thing? Well, it's time for Gates to BITE!


WHAT?

BULLSHYT!

Colombo didn't hit anybody.........he NEVER does!

AwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwRiiiiiiiiiiight Miami!!!!

Congratulations to Colombo! Well done.

Guess Colombo is not buying the drinks tonight...darn

Yeah, how does Armando write this crap and still has a job?

robert,
I know you are very upset about this molestation case, so I will wait to talk to you until you calm down and your as- heals.

Did Colombo's nuts finally drop.

This is crazy. We have the "Chickification" of NFL football. Why don't we just change the rules to "Tag".

Doctor, it's the helicopters...they bother me,

Bell's Hit that got flagged was actually clean. Bad call and they realize it.

Hey at least he hit somebody

REMEMBER THOSE SERVING AND REMIND THOSE WHO FORGOT.

I woke up this morning with a wine glass in ly hand and I said, who’s wine and what does the QB Class of 83 have to do with the Class of 2012?

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane to the good ol days.

Class of '83:
* John Elway. First selection overall by the Baltimore Colts, subsequently traded to the Denver Broncos.
The Broncos SUCK and are still searching for their Franchise QB and will Tbow pan out in time? Who knows.
* Dan Marino. Twenty-seventh selection overall by the Miami Dolphins. Hall of Famer, first ballot.
WE SUCK and SUCK so bad that the fans are begging to SUCK FOR LUCK.
* Jim Kelly, 14th selection overall by the Buffalo Bills. Hall of Famer.
The Bills found their franchise QB and nobody circles the Wagons better then the Buffalo Bills.
* Tony Eason, 15th selection overall by the New England Patriots. Started for the Patriots in Super Bowl XX. Career cut short by injuries after eight NFL seasons.
The great teams and leaders plan for the worst. The Pats are the best in keeping themselves up on the winning pedestal. Perhaps Brady will be done by the end of this season or next.. But, they do know how to pick em the best.
* Ken O'Brien, 24th selection overall by the New York Jets. Passed for 128 touchdowns and more than 25,000 yards in 10 NFL seasons.

To this date the Jets are still kicking themselves for taking O’Brien over Marino. They now have their franchise QB and are champions of the East.
* Todd Blackledge, seventh selection overall by the Kansas City Chiefs. The only out-and-out bust among the quarterbacks chosen in the first round in '83, out of the league by 1989 after appearing in only 46 NFL games.

No further comment required.

So if faith have you, the Miami Dolphins are the ONLY team that does NOT have a franchise QB since the Class of 1983. Perhaps it IS our turn and if we get Lucky, we just may land our franchise QB who will serve us well for the next 18 years.

New Coach, new GM and New QB. We absolutely can’t accept keeping the current staff and GM. NO MORE VALUE picks and trading for that. NO MORE ACORNS as they are useless.

As I said, the rest of the teams choose their QB in round 1 and are winning.

The faith is in _____ hands. Hopefully Bill Cowhers.

NYG

Maybe - MAYBE - when your name is Peter King someone will read that long azzz post. Not until then.

Columbo should be fined for impersonation of an Offensive Lineman.

He got flagged and fined? I never saw him move!

Sorry for the duplicate posts. The 1st one did not take as per the blog but apparently it did.

Columbo didn't plow into anyone after the play...

He thought he saw a cheeseburger on the ground, leaned over to grab it before anyone else did, tripped and fell into a Chief.

They are playing angry, and it is good.

NY G. Jets don't have a franchize QB in sanzhez and they are not leading AFC east. They still have to win on Sunday to get that honor

Redskins 17 Dolphins 10

TRADE UP FOR LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oscar, I agree. The Fins seemed to have made some sort attitude adjustment.

Sometimes the sissy stands his ground and beats the crap out of the class bully.

Another way to look at it, a rat is far more dangerous when cornered.

I hope we crush the Skins.

hopefully we wont waste anymore of our draft and lose to the skins, colts could beat jacksonville also this week

I believe that Tyrone Culver has helped to stabilize that defensive backfield.

hilarious oscar, good one

Many times it's not the intrinsic ability of the athlete, Tyrone Culver is an average at best safety, but he is in good position to make plays and probably helping others back there get in proper positions.

For those of you that know how to watch Games, I'm sure you have noticed in the past couple of games, improved communication among defensive players through the use of hand signals and verbal interchanges.

Same goes for Matt Moore. He's probably calling the right protection and that's why he's having more time to throw the ball.

Griese was not blessed with the physical attributes of Peyton Manning but both were the smartest QB's I've seen.

For those of you that wanted to suck for Luck, you might start preparing to suck your di-k.

Sometimes I wonder, besides fin4life and a few others, how many here on this Blog are over 30 years old? 20? 10?

suck for luck still on, no reason to throw away future for 4 wins this year. plain stupid

Colombo got fined??? Well at least that will hopefully retire him at the end of the year!!
LMAO. that loser!

I believe they called him "The Surgeon"

I'll be watching the Falcons and the Saints.

I respect your opinion, dusty, and you might be right, but I can't feel that way and apparently neither of those players.

one has to wonder what is up with Case Keenum. Granted he doesn't have prototype size for an NFL qb but he is ranked behind guys like Lindley and Cousins.
Yeah, Houston doesn't play in a tough conference but he's thrown for over 17,000 yds and has 144 td's in his four years as a starter.
You have to wonder if someone, somewhere is making a big mistake. But, what do I know.

course not oscar, those players are playing for jobs with new teams next year, cant look bad on tape

It is a great advantage, judy, for the QB to call his own plays, specially in the red zone. Nowadays, few can do it, Peyton did it, and I think Big Ben does.

They are angry, dusty, very angry.

I'll take it for granted you were referring to Griese.

Just for the record, Keenum calls his own plays. I'm not saying he's our guy in the first round but he would be an interesting prospect IF he's around in the 200's like he is projected.

You guys are talkin about Brien Greise? Finally.
Greise and Peyton graduated the same year. Greise won national championship at Michigan. Peyton never won it.
But no one ever talked about Brien Greise or who His father was.

I'll check him out, judy.

We don't need another damn prospects. After 16 starting QB's since Marino, its time to get the best possible guy you can get at all costs. Forget these guys at pick 200. That is a prayer.

Not NFL material, judy.

Angry is good. It means they are tired of being mediocre.

Doctor Lou once said, "Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."

Maybe this team has become motivated enough to use their abilities to raise the level of their game to where it should be. If they are angry with the results they have been getting from the way they practice and the way they play maybe it will translate into better play on the field. But, the proof is in the pudding. If they continue to improve and put together a string of wins everyone will have their answer.
If they continue to lose close games in the 4th qtr everyone will have their answer also.

People tend to forget that we have a QB who was better than Joe Flacco at Delaware.


Not NFL material, judy.

Posted by: oscar canosa | November 11, 2011 at 09:24 PM

who?

Small hands, not accurate, fair arm and poor mobility, judy.

The only penalty I like to see in the first half is a unsportsmanlike penalty. A late hit. A dirty hit. An intimidating hit. A hit on a receiver that isn't catching the ball. It is worth the 15 yards at times to intimidate the other guy. Guys like Tedd Ginn could be intimidated and was often. You smack him once real good and he was useless for the rest of the game.

I wonder why Pat Devlin left Penn State? In relief, he played much better than the starter there.

For some reason, Paterno probably didn't want him there.

Are you Amigos running to check the stats on Devlin? Or do you only care in criticizing the Team?

Most accurate passer in last year's NFL Draft. Hmm..

It's all right, Pat, you can rest easy now.

Sparano is waiting for the "right time" to "unleash" him on the league.

Anyway, it has been confirmed that Dan Carpenter WILL be lined up in the eye behind Daniel Thomas when the team gets to the red zone. I thought it was speculation but it gives them the element of surprise by having Matt Moore audible to a drop kick if he feels it's too risky to run or pass.

Sorry. The story I'm now getting is because Sparano has Carpenter come in and kick so many field goals that he feels that lining Carpenter up behind Thomas will make teams think they may ATTEMPT a drop kick, thus "giving them the element of surprise and make it easier for them to run or pass." Oh! Now I understand.

Un Freaking Believable!!!!

After reading one of Darryl's posts today, I thought long and hard about ponying up for some Quality Scotch!

After a couple of Bourbans and Water, I thought better of the idea.

Then, I went to a pre planned dinner date with my NEWEST Girlfriend at her parents house.

What do you suppose her Dad breaks out for after dinner drinks? You guessed it, SCOTCH. BUT - Not JUST Scotch mind you, **40 year Old** Scotch!

I must be living right because Karma's treating me pretty good lately!

ValHalla!!!!
