Miami's 'intimate knowledge' a good thing

Work with me on this ...

The Dolphins hired Joe Philbin as their head coach. He was the offensive coordinator at Green Bay and so one supposes he is familiar with Green Bay reserve quarterback Matt Flynn, who is expected to be available as a free agent this offseason as he searches for a starting job.

Philbin hired Mike Sherman as his offensive coordinator. Sherman was the head coach at Texas A&M where one supposes he became very familiar with starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill is available in the coming draft as perhaps the third or fourth-rated quarterback in the draft.

General manager Jeff Ireland, meanwhile, is a graduate of Baylor University. One supposes he still has ties to Baylor, where quarterback Robert Griffin III did great work in winning the Heisman Trophy in 2011. Griffin will be in the draft and could be the first or second player selected and a target for the Dolphins if they get the hankerin' for trading up.

So, pardon me for doing a lot of supposing here, but I'm supposing the Dolphins should have an advantage over other teams when it comes to knowing and understanding Flynn, Tannehill and Grffin.

"I guess you could suppose that, couldn't you?" Ireland told me during his appearance on my radio show, Armando and Perkins on 640 Sports (640-AM in South Florida) Tuesday. "Yeah, you know, we have some intimate knowledge of a lot of different people. Obviously with Mike and Joe and my ties to those universities and obviously the work that our scouts do -- my pro scouts and college scouts and how they surround themselves with resources and people -- we have intimate knowlege of the market. And that's a good thing."

It is a clear advantage in a situation where more information is always better. Of the five top quarterback possibilities for the Dolphins this offseason, including Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck, the Dolphins are ahead of the game on the three mentioned above. They obviously have work to do in gathering information on Manning and Luck, but I have serious doubts Luck is within reach so really, the issue is they know three of the likely four players on an "intimate" level.

Advantage Miami.

The Ireland interview is below. In fact, the entire 8 o'clock hour of the show is below, including our interview with Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com:

2012-01-31_0131_8am

---------------------

Ireland is aware of the comments about playing with elite quarterbacks that Brandon Marshall made following his winning of the MVP award at the Pro Bowl.

Marshall said his job was easier when he was catching passes from elite quarterbacks because they "put the ball in the right spots." Marshall also agreed with me when I said on my twitter account that if the Dolphins improve the quarterback position, they improve that position and Marshall at the same time. He retweeted my tweet.

Some of you took exception with the comments for various reasons, among them that they were a slap at Moore. Ireland disagreed.

"I don't know if it's a slap in the face at all," he said. "Matt did a nice job this year. And he's going to continue to develop as any quarterback we bring in is going to do. When you're over there and playing with Pro Bowl quarterbacks, they do things differently than some other guys. They're there for a reason. You've got the Tom Bradys of the world, and obviously he wasn't over there, but you have the Ben Roethlisbergers and Drew Breeses of the world and they're Pro Bowl quarterbacks. They play at a little different level than other quarterbacks. But that's not a slap at Matt. Matt did a great job and I think Brandon would tell you Matt did a great job."

I agree.

--------------

The Dolphins continue to fill out their coaching staff. I've been told Jim Turner, a longtime friend of offensive coordinator Mike Sherman who served as the Aggies offensive line coach the past three years, is close to being hired in Miami. I presume he will coach the offensive line.

No announcement has been made by the team. Turner has never coached in the NFL. He did coach at Delaware, Northeastern, Harvard, Temple and Louisiana Tech. He also served from 1990 to 1994 in the United State Marine Corps.

So one supposes discipline will not be an issue with his unit.

Semper Fidelis.

WOW, Is all I can say.

Right on cue. It still doesn't reach your adolescent mind. We grown men all get it. We don't need to announce it in order to get attention. It speaks of your immature insecurity.

I challenge you find one other blogger than needs to announce to the world like a six year old that he touched a girl.

So when you come on here posting as the admiral and Diggler, you think that's much more acceptable?

Dude, you've taken one to many diks to the head.

You're sick fvck whinning about your miserable life.

Why is your only complaint about someone mentioning women?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

Don't answer Diggler, we already know ;)

PS: Just because you hate women and your lips are stretch out like Mick Jagger, don't take it out on me. I love Penocha!

Matt Flynn is the best option for Our Dolphins.Our current roster is filled with too many veterans.Their talents and skills won't wait for a franchise to be developed.In Flynn We get a player who's INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE to coach Philbin.

Oder, Your the one getting upset, Iam just pointing out that your a BSer, Though Iam sure everyone already knows it.BTWWhat kind of job do you have that allows you to post 12 hours a day?

ozkar how does intimate knowledge translate into wins.
What are Flynn's strengths and weaknesses?
How can you tell after only two NFL starts?

I'm pretty sure coach Philbin is aware of Flynn's strenghts and weaknesses.As far as what can be said about those two starts,I say auspicious!

I kinda agree with oszckhar.
Flynn would need some development time before we could accurately know what we had in him if we went that route.
In Green Bay, Flynn had a couple of games with a playoff caliber offense.
Lets' see what he can do with Colombo the Turnstile as a protector.

It just seems logical that coach Philbin would want Flynn.Acquiring doesn't required a prohibited price.So to it appears that's the route Our Dolphins would take.Besides,Matt's ready.The only development he lacks is more starts.

ozkar: when one considers the Philbin - Flynn connection, that does seem to be the intuitive choice.

I would love to hear the arguments currently being made in the war-room.

Anyway, if Miami goes after a QB, it kinda looks like Flynn, Tannehill, or Foles / Weeden.

Don't really think Peyton is a viable option only because of the "vertebral health" arguments that can be made.

Not to get in the middle of two idiots(Coalition @Odin)But whats more realistic, A Old hippie getting laid every Night(Odin) or a old man sitting at a computer for 12 hours daily on a football blog saying he has "HOTTIES" coming andgoing? LMAO At Odin.

P.S.

I would love to see Manning in a Dolphins uniform if it meant sweeping our AFC East opponents and effing up their playoff hopes.

Short of that, I don't see him as viable option.
Stick with the youth movement.

Damn it's gonna be a long off-season here at Dolphins in Depth.
5% football talk and 95% trash talking amongst ourselves.

Tim in Tampa,if We were to acquire Flynn.Would it still make sense to draft Ryan Tannehill in a late round?

2% truth by Odin, 98% BS by Odin.

odin one thing I can't understand. How are you not totally embarrassed by your juvenile posturing?


Let's see the hands of all bloggers impressed with odin's imaginary hotties?


I'll report back when I see a hand,.

ozkar - considering that the position has been neglected since Dan Marino - my answer is YES!
I don't want to suffer at the QB position anymore
Let's do what what needs to be done to address that position so that we are set for the next several years.

I don't think mortgaging the whole draft for Luck or RGIII is wise.
Seems like for every 1st round QB success story there is a 1st round QB bust story and that causes concern.

Flynn, Moore, Tannehill - sounds like it has potential.

oh, and put Trent Richardson in the backfield.

Odin could'nt get laid in a 5 dollar "HO" house with a fistful of fiftys.

ozkar - also I think Tannehill goes in the first round and not a late round.

Tim in Tampa I'm being serious.The rb situation has already been adequately addressed.Thomas@Bush.Other positions need dire attention so Trent is out of the question for Us.What should be the Miami Dolphins 1st rd. draft after Matt Flynn has signed with Us?

ozkar - If we are switching from a 3-4 to a 4-3 (and I am not sure why we are switching), look for the Dolphins to go heavy on defense after they resolve questions at the QB position.

3-4, 4-3, we already play them both ever single game. You guys talk about it like its switching from badminton to rugby.

Now the blond hottie showed up! I have an open door policy ;) I've got my hands FULL!

Valhalla!

Yes.

No.

Maybe.

Yes to Yongo. No to odin. Maybe for the next post.

Why do People shy away from me? Ah, I know, the Truth. Well, in Internet at least, if they don't come to the Truth, they're fu-ked.

Yessir

Now the blond hottie showed up! I have an open door policy ;) I've got my hands FULL!
Valhalla!

That's not the only thing you're full of.

Try not to drool too much on your keyboard tonight, Gramps.

someone needs to start asking what type of d coaching staff we are going to have. The O staff looks like it will be fine.

But the miami dolphins have a bad habbit of not being able to put a good d on the field when they have a good o and vise versa.

I think we are a better 4-3 team so that really isnt a problem. It might fix the huge hole we had in the center of the d last year.

I would have found a new conditioning coach. They were ill prepared most of the year and the injuries just kept comming.

I keep dreaming, but letting Nolan go was a mistake a huge one. Go Dolphins!!

I'd like to start asking what type of coaching staff we are going to have.

Chewing on some fresh parsley does wonders to get that condom taste out of your mouth. Try it! Don't be shy...because I know...ur...um..well...it's cool.

Valhalla!

Gee, how did I know you would embarrass yourself while I was gome-LOL!

Is It because you bare your asss every night Feagg Boy!

I thought Mando done told yo asss, no more Meth money if you impostor the posters.

Oops, you did it again, Feagg!

What da fkkk. Fake me at 11:39...but uh...NICE TRY!

I like footBall and baseBall. Switch hitting is uh...up my alley...and..don't knock it until you've tried it!

Valhalla!

Blog hit Troll thinks everyone is stupid.

He doesn't realize everyone recognizes his posts regardless of the dumbass troll names he thinks of.

Beware though, don't talk about women on Armando's blog. It pisses his Faggoot Trolls off to no end.

Troll face, does your Momma know you suck corks for meth MONEY?

No wonder your Daddy disowned you, you fat pathetic loser. Go back to your own country and FAAG OUT THERE BEATCH!

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

PS: What did your Momma ever do to you beatch? Why you hate women so much?

Odin why are you here? You said you had a hottie with you. Or did Ralph go home already?

You know you would bow down and suck Fidels decrepid old sword if given the chance you coward beatch.

Admit it!

Viva Fidel!!!!

The attempt: Please believe that "odinseye" is this hip, young guy who just spent the past hour banging some "blonde" who just happened to iterrupt his endless blogging.

The reality: Odinseye just spent the past 45-minutes in a drunken haze sitting bare-assed on his toilet, dealing with his constipation and various other geriatric ailments.

(and in the future--for better believability you might want to pause from blogging for more than a freaking HOUR when you're concocting one of these bullsh*t stories, nitwit)

Odin why are you here? You said you had a hottie with you. Or did Ralph go home already?

How did your self-esteem get so low you feel the need to do this, anyway? It's blatant.

Odin why are you here?

-Why are you here in America you sissy feag? You couldn't handle your business in your own country? Yeah, just keep running beatch. That or just pull down your pants and get that Meth Money.

Oh wait, let me guess, your too old fat and cowardly to even earn your Meth Money?

Thank God for Obama Care Huh? You worthless piece of shyt. Your a disgrace to your own people.

Mother Fvcker, the Diggler(as you like to call yourself when your in your gay mood, ain't got nothing on me punk). I just wish I had one little chance in real life to prove what a copward you are(as if Fidel hasn't ALREADY-Beatch!)

Poor Odin.

The entire world he created on this blog is crumbling now.

I imagine the lonely, drunken rants will only grow more desperate now.

One thing you can be sure of:

Any 'adult' who feels the constant need to concoct juvenile sexual scenarios and then brag about it on a message board isn't getting ANY.

Internet psychology 101, dude. You could not possibly be any more transparent.

My hottest finest babes understand, that when I invite them over for a fine dinner and glass of wine, that I will have to set them aside on occasion to attend to my football blogging.

Odin is suffering from overcooked noodles.

Yeah, that's right. Go straight to your default "internet bully" crap as soon as anyone calls you out on the CONSTANT stream of complete bullsh*t you infest this board with on a 24/7 basis.

You're a guy reaching retirement age. Then again, maybe you're not since most of the "old days" stories are a bunch of hyped-up crap from someone trying to sound like Hunter Thompson.

Either way, what a loser you are. Jesus.

Poor Odin.
The entire world he created on this blog is crumbling now.

-Dude, thanks for the laugh. This was really funny. And it really gave a good example of YOUR mindset. It just proves what I've been sayion all along. This is your world., You think worlds can be "CREATED" here(your own words-ROTFLMAO) on an anonymous blog. Dude, your pathetic and your embarrassing your people and all the h o m o's of the world.

I imagine the lonely, drunken rants will only grow more desperate now.

-Like your gay solicitations as the reverend or the diggler? This is YOUR whole life! No woinder you take it so personal. Well, that and your obvious retardation-ROTFLMAO! Dude, your goofy and pathetic at the same time. Seriously, I have to stop typing just to catch my breath from laughing at you so hard.

I never really played with faaagoots like this, but it's pretty fun..........from a far and safe distance like the enternet!

Yeah, what could be hotter (or more believable) than a knock at the door from a "blonde" looking for sex and then returning to a Miami Dolphins football blog less than an hour later?

This guy is so deeply embedded into his own crap that I actually think HE'S starting to believe it.

Which at least would give him ONE person who does!

Well Odin I must say I am impressed. I need like 3 hours to thoroughly satisfy my girl. You get the job done in 3 minutes and are back to the blog. Impressive.

Let me guess, because Fidel was too much for your lazy assss?

Own it Beatch! You KNOW it's the TRUTH!

Wow, my hottie red head just showed up. Yes!!!

Be back in 90 seconds.......

And now we come to that part of the day where odin will talk to himself for the next five hours, nod off drooling in a drunken stupor for a few hours in his soiled Depends, and then return tomorrow with another boatload of b.s. that only the incredibly dense and/or naive could possibly believe.

What a fulfilling life!
