« Mike Sherman: Dolphins not far from Super Bowl | Main | The type of QB Mike Sherman looks for »

Where is the 'hidden talent' on the Miami offense?

Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said Thursday that in studying the Dolphins he saw some "hidden talent" on the roster and his job is to draw that out and make it show up.

This has to interest any Dolphins fan that remembers Yeremiah Bell came out of special teams duty to become a long-time starter at strong safety. It hearkens to the days when Wes Welker came off the waiver wire and worked his way into the starting lineup. It speaks to the possibilities that maybe, perhaps, hopefully, the Dolphins have a diamond here or there that simply got lost in the rough of 6-10.

Also, I'm a big Jeremy Lin fan so I believe it's possible for guys to suddenly perform when given the opportunity. I loved the Tim Tebow story so I think being buried deep down the depth chart isn't necessarily akin to being in a career grave.

But if the Dolphins do have "hidden talent" where is it? Who represents that talent?

Sherman hasn't told the players he's identified yet about his high hopes for them. So he wouldn't tell me when I asked if he'd name the players specifically.

But one can hazard an educated guess ...

If you're talking offensive line, which is Sherman's specialty considering he coached the position before, one has to begin with John Jerry.

Jerry was a coach favorite when he was at the Senior Bowl in 2010 and the Miami staff was coaching the South squad. Tony Sparano loved him. Then he got to Miami as a third-round draft pick and simply didn't live up to the hype.

He struggled learning the system, then got sick, then lost weight, then lost his job, then kind of disappeared. The start of 2011 training camp was no more impressive when Jerry started out on third team.

But during the season, Jerry worked at both right guard and right tackle, played in games at both positions, and frankly, didn't seem overmatched in the least. Was he perfect? Of course not. But maybe with some work, he can land one of the two wide open spots -- guard and tackle -- on the right side of the Miami offensive line.

Nate Garner might also be considered a hidden talent. He started games in 2009 and was expected to compete for a starting job in 2010 when he broke his foot. Season lost. Last season he returned to backup duty. He started one game at left guard and was fine. He filled in at left tackle one game and was over his head. He's not a left tackle but perhaps Sherman sees something there as a right guard possibility.

Clyde Gates. Remember the talk of him blowing the top off the defense with his great speed? Yeah, well, he caught two passes for 19 yards as a rookie. But perhaps there is a there there. Mark Duper and Mark Clayton didn't light it up as rookies, either. (No, I'm not saying Gates will be a Duper or Clayton so please don't read craziness into the point.)

I am saying, however, that Gates has learning and working to do. Perhaps with this coaching staff he can prosper and unveil that talent which was very well hidden in 2011.

Maybe Sherman considers Charles Clay and Daniel Thomas hidden talent because they were backups and didn't contribute to great or eye-popping degrees in 2011. I believe Dolphins fans are aware of the second-round running back and sixth-round TE/H-Back.

But hey, if Sherman doubles the production from each player, I'll gladly call them hidden talents all day if he wants. No worries.

Here is a compilation from some days in January and February 2012, and from window of commercial jet. I could’ve reached out and grabbed a sample. Notice how Delta jet flies right over us. Lastly, near the end, notice that there are 2 shadow lines. 2 shadow lines yet one plane, do you see that?

Miami Herald,
This chemtrail stuff is scary and very much concerns my family and all living things.
Please do a real cover story on this massive global environmental crime, "Chemtrails The Aerosol Spray Program"

Thanks
Paul Thorogood

The chemtrail conspiracy theory holds that some trails left by aircraft are actually chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed at high altitudes for purposes undisclosed to the general public in clandestine programs directed by government officials.[1] This theory is not accepted by the scientific community, which states that they are just normal contrails, and that there is no scientific evidence supporting the chemtrail theory.

As a result of the popularity of the conspiracy theory, official agencies have received thousands of complaints from people who have demanded an explanation.[1][2] The existence of chemtrails has been repeatedly denied by scientists around the world, who say the trails are normal contrails

Idiots and fearful ones.

If there was any truth to the chemtrails,they would be doing them at night when they would not be visible.

If there was any truth to it, the very perpetrators would be victims to it as well.


I'd worry more about the water.

Contrails ( /ˈkɒntreɪlz/; short for "condensation trails") or vapour trails are artificial clouds that are the visible trails of condensed water vapour made by the exhaust of aircraft engines. As the hot exhaust gases cool in the surrounding air they may precipitate a cloud of microscopic water droplets or, if the air is cold enough, tiny ice crystals.[1]

Depending on atmospheric conditions, contrails may be visible for only a few seconds or minutes, or may persist for many hours, which may affect climate.[2]
Contrails tend to last longer if there is higher moisture in the atmosphere and associated higher level clouds such as cirrus, cirrostratus and cirrocumulus already present before the plane flies through.

Conspiracy theorists are just as gullible as the sheeple.

I don't see any problem with the explanation that condensation trails act differently at different altitudes under different environmental conditions.
If the atmosphere is at near saturation level it makes sense that the contrail would last longer than it would if the air were dry.
NASA did do a study on how contrails affect weather patterns which I could see as a concern when you consider that what these planes are doing is actually creating a cloud in the sky. There are thousands of jets in the air at any point in time and it seems logical that the condensation being formed would have some kind of effect on weather patterns. As for the chemtrail claim where is the proof from anyone that shows any concentration of chemicals in the contrail that would be harmful to anyone? Do you have a link.

Chemtrails are very real

the government has employed hundreds of people to come on sights like this and attempt to debunk chemtrails

Chemtrails are very real

they are being sprayed on the population every day

the government is full of evil liars

just look up in the sky at what they are doing to us and think for yourself

see the chemtrails lingering and expanding

We need to hand these lying bastards for their environmental crimes

But, where is the proof. Why isn't anyone out there collecting samples on the "chemtrails" and testing them to prove the chemical contents and that chemtrails really exist? Can you provide that information? Because we would like to find these people and make them disappear. Oops. I spilled the beans.

condensation trails are water vapor turning to ice crystals in disappearing in one to two minutes, you asssswipe

not chemicals that linger for hours and take away the sun

stop insulting the general public's intelligence

stop insulting the general public's intelligence

you sick bastards!

stop chemtrails now and execute the people responsible for them

Stop the chemtrail spraying !!!

chemtrails are also done at night with wisper quiet drone aircraft

We're all going to die! We're all going to die!

the government told us lead paint was not toxic also and Kennedy was killed with a magic bullet

what is a magic bullet?

government told us there was weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?

and bankrupt our country over it

and ruined our kids future over it

If you are a concerned citizen as you state why don't you gather up a team of concerned citizens and find how to gather some scientific data on these "chemtrails" so you can prove their existence rather than saying they exist and having no proof.
Everyone, including the scientific community, has refuted their existence. You need solid proof. Otherwise, your just another loon conspiracy theorist.

Millions of people know and speak out over chemtrail spraying

the media is privately owned and government controlled

At least Chinese government tells u they are in control and will do whatever they want

USA is ALL Lies!

Now we are almost 16 trillion in debt and bankrupt

Good going George Bush and all his criminal friends ruined our country

Worst president ever

Don't forget about the FEMA concentration camps. Wouldn't want to leave that one out. People are disappering at an alarming rate.

the conspiracy theory is, ..... there is no chemtrails

and the dummies believe and say ok, duh.

Millions of intelligent people all around the world know differently

Scum Sucking Liars

same ones that just STOLE $64 billion dollars to rebuild Iraq and say, "we dont know where your tax money went"

suckers!

Half of the block on my street now has empty houses. I may be next. I'm taking my family into the woods to hide.

Don't you have somewhere else to discuss this garbage? These "trails" have been around as long as commercial and military jet liners have been around.

Many governments, universities, scientists and media outlets have made investigations and found no supporting evidence of anything more than contrails.

Go play Dungeons and Dragons!

Armando likes Tebow because they are both GAY.

We have aluminum foil on all of the walls and ceilings in our house so they can't get to us with their radio waves and destroy our minds.
We replace the foil every three months so it doesn't lose it's effectiveness. It's a huge expense but it's well worth it to keep them from controlling our minds.

We put out thousands of messages and websites to debunk chemtrails and you idiots believe us. Ha Ha

God you guys are so stupid. Ha Ha

What chemtrails, that is from some kind of jet exhaust or some water something contrail. yup. that's it.
Go inside, nothing to see here. Ha, Ha Dummies!

Hey, there's another sane person on here now. Thank God.

FEMA camps will be ready for you dummies soon.
Time for you to go.
We have everything we need underground, suckers!

I give up

Come on Armando. Write something new already!

Many governments, universities, scientists and media outlets have made investigations and found no supporting evidence of anything more than me on a website, saying dont look up and see the truth listen tome a government paid debunker. Ha, Ha!

Quite the opposite is true, but we just lie and deny.
That's our policy

Ha, Ha what chemtrails you dummies!

Armando and Tim Tebow are currently in a GAY bath house.

Aerosol Crimes 1st Edition

This documentary produced by chemtrail researcher Clifford Carnicom is a must see and an excellent research tool. Five plus years into the operations has provided ample evidence in this 90min DVD that covers many topics. Over the years aerosol/chemtrail research has provided some leads but even more questions as to who and why the spraying occurs. It is clear jets are deliberately spraying the sky's and it will not stop until enough people are aware and willing to stand up for the operations exposure and termination.

Armando is Tim Tebows favorite RECEIVER.

He wishes he was a tight end.

One mads trash is another mans treasure. When I watched Jerry this past yr, I saw speed, toughness, and a willing to hit people. I was wondering what Sparano was seeing in Jerry that I wasnt. Jerry filled in at RG and then at LT and again I thought Jerry did a good job, enough so that Id like to see him start at RG, or RT. I think hes got the stones.

CLIFF EXPLAINS HIS CUTTING EDGE RESEARCH ON COAST TO COAST AM (Jan 27, 2012)

Clifford Carnicom

Clifford Carnicom, professional computer analyst and former employee for the Defense Dept. , has been doing independent research on the aerosols that have been dumped from the skies for more than a decade. If you care about the environment, and if you care about your health, this is critically important information. Cliff also does a review of a recent report issued by the Center for Disease Control (not prevention) on the medical condition that has been called Morgellons.

Interview (1 hr 18 min)

Massive reports every week from around the world on Chemtrail spraying!

What's in store for us?

All those crakking on Matt Moore should probably go back and check the stats for this yr alone. Moore, if given the chance in camp would have taken Hennes job. But Sparano being "head up the tub" head coach wouldnt let Moore compett. Moore took over in mid season, not knowing the offense, did a great job. The right side of Dolphin OL was terrible at least and dangerous at best. Henne was injured because of this OL and Moore was concussed because of this OL. A QB is only as good as his OL permits. I dont mention that idiot at WR,,,,BM. Maybe some of yous, should rail on the OL.

We have done several reports on thios deliberate chemtrail spraying and have benn warned to no longer report this and call it just plain crazy, ... or else

We also did a documentary and were warned quite harshly about no more reports and tell them only crazy people see them, ...... or else.

Chemtrails yes they are real and this spraying is insane!

I mean, ah... what chemtrails. huh? What is a chemtrail??? ok, put me down, put me down guys. I wont say anything about chemtrails!

Oh yes, the government employs me to come on to football blogs and debunk chemtrails. I make $700,000 a year doing this, its great work.


It's all simple physics. If there were anything more to it there would be no way to keep it secret. There are far too many scientists world wide and no way to keep them all quiet.

Dragon fly first of all training camp was only around 4 weeks and secondly Matt Moore didn't get signed until 2 weeks in. Henne had already read the playbook and practiced with the offense on his own all summer. That is why Henne started.

Golly, I come to this blog to read intelligent conversation on the Dolphins and I have to go through a bunch of conspiracy theorists on Chem trails, and people who have difficulty expressing themselves so they resort to filth. I hope this is not an indication of the caliber of people who are Fin fans. I find that a little scary as I am a Fin fan. Would really appreciate posts that address the articles cerebrally. For those who can't post without filth that means using your head for more than something to put your ball cap on backwards.

Tebow would fill up the stands. I wonder if Denver would trade Tebow for our 1st pick?

I've never heard of Chemtrail. Can he play QB?

The true hidden talent here is J. Ireland. The only thing is that in order to find it one needs to go to leprechauns land who nobody in the world knows where it is.
