Yet another reason I love RG3

You know I love Robert Griffin III.

It's been that way since the midway mark of the college football season. And it's about more than just his ability to run a 4.41 time in the 40 or the fact hes already graduated, or the fact his folks were both military personnel who instilled great discipline in the kid, or the fact he completed 72 percent of his passes with 37 touchdowns and only six interceptions last season.

No, it's the total awesomeness of this young man. He's bright. He's gifted. He handles himself like a successful 40-year-old man but manages to maintain a certain enthusiasm about things.

I love all that.

And I love what I saw below. I heard he had wowed practically every team he interviewed with at the Indy combine -- the Dolphins included. Check out how he handled the coach's interview with the NFL Network via the Sportsgrid:

Blog Hit Troll,

You ever notice how I try to stimulate conversation by talking football with the Bloggers?

You ever notice how you just kind of ruin.......everything?

Yeah, I thought so. Take notes PUNK!

ValHalla!!!!

Glad you guys are all happy and content. But the Dolphins are still effed up!

Seems like most of the fans pushing to sell the farm for RG3 are just basing their opinions on what they hear from places like this. The truth is, he may be good, he may be just ok or worse. The point being we would be better served using our pics to get as much talent as we can instead of placing all our eggs in one rookie's basket. As for Mando, we know you and RG3 are already booking a chapel in Massachusetts. Keep your man love to yourself.

odin @1:14,

In S.Walsh and K.Dorsey I believe you have a collective 43-3 record as starters in College. In Wuerfel you have a player who put up an astounding 178.4 career rating at UF. In Palmer you have a kid who competed for Natl. Titles. My point is these were College legends but weak NFL talent and IF you read the BIO on Flynn he falls in this group. I wonder if put on a team like Oakland thrown to the wolves would Flynn be in this conversation at all today?? nothing more nothing less!

Fin4, my point as well, don't sell the farm for RG3! Get Manning if healthy, use draft to address oline and dline, and pick up Weeden as a QB. Keep Matt Moore....

Steelers releasing Hines Ward? Could be great with Dolphins if they get Manning and Reggie Wayne.

Year after year we pick in the 1st round and still dont make the playoffs. Trade the stupid picks! The Giants did it for Ely, they won 2 rings. Even the Jets traded for Sanchez , they made 2 AFC championships. Desean Jackson and Marques Colston are free agents. Trade the stupid picks and get us in the playoffs.
I was at the Philly game. Matt Moore is a joke!

So if rg3 comes to miami will we see another muscular dreadlocked "bride" and armondo in a tux wearing a dikta esque stache mag cover?

RGIII is the real deal Miami Dolphins - Yes you Ross, Ireland and Philbin. You listening.

All I can say is if you don't go after him then you'd better make sure Peyton Mannning is 100% to play if you go after him or Flynn can actually play and not become another Kolb or back-up retard.
We have had to many years without a great QB, the buck starts now, 2012 is the season where these Dolphins can make a statement and really put them back into contention.

Let's Go Phins!!!

Hopefully this years draft is bad enough and the season is bad enough for ireland to get fired. Big nose ross should have tossed all of the parcells trash out but no. This is unless they draft the real franchise in rg3! Bottom damn line!

dolphin77.........


HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU WRITE THE SAME POST @ 5;28 AM IN THE LAST YEAR ?


A 1000 TIME ?

Home says,

"Why would u go after RG3 when Peyton Manning (who is healthy and does not have to play contact football for 6 more months) is on the table?

The Miami Dolphins essentially can have MVP QB Peyton Manning
Plus 1ST ROUND & 3RD ROUND PICK in 2012,
Plus 1ST ROUND PICK & 5 TH ROUND PICK in 2013
- ALL IN TACT

WHY WOULD U GIVE UP ALL THESE PICKS?

QB PEYTON MANNING CAN & WILL PLAY FOR 3 MORE YEARS for the MIAMI DOLPHINS

Then u can also sign Center Saturday to work w Peyton
Move Pouncey to Guard where he excelled in college, improving the O-line

Also WR Reggie Wayne is available in FA

Imagine QB Peyton Manning w WR Brandon Marshall (2) MVP Pro Bowlers playing w WR Reggie Wayne, RB/WR Reggie Bush and WR Bess in the slot.

Sure hands & feet WR Hartline for an extra
(Imagine how good Hartline would be w Peyton Manning)

Then the Miami Dolphins can use their 1st round pick on much needed DE to pressure and sack Brady & Sanchez

Then another lineman & a CB, like Alabama's stud CB
(tradeseansmith.com)

The following year the Miami Dolphins will also STILL HAVE THEIR FIRST ROUND PICK (cuz they did not WASTE IT on RG3)

Now we have a team, NOT JUST ONE PLAYER

have a HAARPy day :( "

Love
Home

Miami Dolphins = Castoff island

4 NECK SURGERY IN 9 MONTH................


NO CONTACT FOOTBALL,MY FOOT........


RETIERMENT PACKAGE FOR PAYTON MANNING ???????

THE CELLAR WILL BE OURS ..........

IN THE LAST 12 YEARS,THE DOLPHINS GAVE A RETIREMENT PACKAGES FOR A SCORE OF PLAYERS AMONG THEM ARE MANY PLAYERS WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE DESERVING .......BUT NEVER TO A QB WITH NECK ISSUES LIKE P.MANNING ................

LETS START A NEW THING BUY GIVING 23 YEARS RETIREMENT PACKAGE TO MANNING AND A CONDO .....

I couldn’t disagree more with this notion of taking a shot on Manning or Flynn, I see both as being a bigger chance than by going after RG3 who in my opinion will be better than Cam Newton, cannon for an arm and 4.4 speed come on man!! It’s time for the Dolphins to push all their chips into the center of the table and and go after the franchise QB we have all been looking for since Marino’s departure and stop playing it safe…

Ok, so here's the thing. I think Henne will have a mediocre career.

But, for some reason, I'm kinda worried about him going to the Jets. I just don't like playing players who were cast-off, since they'll have something to prove if they play us (think Welker). That usually gives the player something extra in the tank. And I would HATE to lose to Chad Henne.

One thing about Sparano, he had the Jets' number. Here's hoping Philbin carries that over.

Forget RG3. Let's stick with what is tried and true. Get a white blood that can comprehend today's sophisticated offenses and forget the neeg that may have his share of highlight plays on espn but will never take you anywhere.

Bobby Griffin w the cute name and all,

Played against TERRIBLE COLLEGE DEFENSES in the PAC 12

Bobby Griffin is a track star, not so much an NFL football QB

Bobby Griffin gets nailed like QB Pat White and,
THE DOLPHINS HAVE NO FUTURE FOR AT LEAST 3 MORE YEARS
because
They STUPIDLY TRADED AWAY AT LEAST 4 0R 5 GREAT DRAFT PICKS INCL 1ST ROUND PICK 2012 & 2013

ONLY A COMPLETE MULE WOULD RUIN THE ENTIRE TEAM FOR ONE UNPROVEN PLAYER WHEN MVP QB PEYTON MANNING IS AVAILABLE

WTF?

Stay away from the over hyped team destroying pick of Bobby Griffin (his real name enuf w the R2D2 BS name)

The Miami Dolphins could sign four time league MVP Peyton Manning and get awesome center Jeff Saturday also
Then Miami could get a 1ST ROUND DRAFT PICK STUB DE PASS RUSHER & ANOTHER O-LINE MEN OR CB in 2012
In 2013 w All four of these new stud players, then Miami WILL GET another 2013 1st round pick and yet another high draft pick to build a team

That is six excellent players
one being the smartest MVP QB in the NFL and/or (2)1st round picks for Miami

or we mortgage the entire future of THE TEAM
for one over hyped unproven NFL quarterback

R U Kidding ?

ABSOLUTELY SIGN FA MVP QB PEYTON MANNING & KEEP ALL YOUR DRAFT PICKS !!!

Go Phins!

DC....

please....

Sporano and Henne could go to the PATS...it doesn't matter...

anyway you slice it...its still SPorano and Henne....

It's a shame Peyton can't throw the ball anymore. A few years of a healthy Manning would have been great.

I'll just leave it to the FO to figure out the next best alternative.

Worst mistake in franchise history:
Giving up compensation for Culpepper instead of signing Drew Brees.

Well, if we don't try to trade up for RGIII it is going to be the second worst mistake in franchise history.

Jeff Ireland has no balls. He is too chicken **** to make the move necessary to acquire RGIII. He is going to play it safe with Manning and not giving up the draft picks. And when Manning isn't himself due to his age or injury, he will say that he tried.

Well guess what?

Not good enough!!

I am tired of this franchise playing scared and playing it safe. We have been playing it safe since Marino retired and JJ left. What has that gotten us?

Nothing.

Take a gamble and go for RGIII. He has the ability to make this a team competing for a championship every year for the NEXT DECADE.

Payton Manning and Matt Flynn is fools gold. Just cause they likely don't cost and draft picks doesn't make them the right choice.

Grow some balls Ireland!

I've read a number of guys say add Manning but also draft Weeden. HUH? That makes NO sense to me, unless you are hedging your bets. You do realize that if they draft Weeden he probably doesn't play for 3-4 years behind Manning. So now you've got a 31 or 32 year old QB getting his feet wet. Doesn't make ANY sense. Under I like the kid but the two don't go hand in hand. If we're adding Manning you need to draft a guy who's is 22 o3 23 right now and let him grow. Weeden is not that guy, in this scenario.

Home guaranteed MVP QB Peyton Manning WILL be a Miami Dolphin

ENUF SAID

PERIOD

Kris, ever heard the phrase:

Be careful what you wish for. You might just get it.

If so, then you'll tread softly. I know you've played organized sports, so I know you know what happened when you had something extra to play for (maybe a rival, someone who did something to you, etc.). Gave you an extra spark probably.

Sure, we can laugh at Sparano/Henne, but I believe they were 2-0 playing the Jets a couple of years ago. I think 3-1 in 2 years. Hate for them to turn that around on us.

redsky,
U must be pushing hard for office and want the AARP vote bad. Manning, Wayne and Ward?! LMAO.
I'm just baffled by so many ignorant and above all mediocre fans who want this team to perennially be the landfill of the NFL.

I think Ireland has done a decent job in getting the so called retreads b/c at the time they filled a need and gave us a chance to win a few games, I mean we knew we had no chance at even sniffing at a SB.

That was then this is now. Ireland slowly but steadily has been transitioning this team from the Andre the Giant Parcells mentality to a quicker, more athletic bunch. The acquisition of Bush and Gates last year supported Ireland's comments wanting the team to add speed. The Bush gamble paid off, Gates, well he will be a nice returner and that is it unless Philbin and co discover a way to teach him how to properly run a route.

RG3 would be the perfect candidate to cement this transition, I travel a lot and hear stories, no team likes to face the Phins because they are massive bunch, one that now has been acquiring speed. You put Bush and RG3 playing together and this team will be Heat-like unstoppable.

Let Us See

ross needs to make just 2 moves; fire ireland and sell the team.

NFL Network reported last night that dolphins are in talks to move up for RG3, but so are 2 other teams. RG3 will be a bust. Only once in a while do these kinds of players work out, so Cam Newton is that once in a while.

QB PEYTON MANNING CAN & WILL PLAY FOR 3 MORE YEARS for the MIAMI DOLPHINS

Posted by: My name is Home & i'm a repetitive, ignorant, know nothing idiot

Here we go again. SHUT UP! NOBODY CARES WHAT YOU THINK!

This is the clown that yesterday said NOBODY knows if Manning can throw or play. Yet, he contines to blaber that he can with ZERO proof & all evidence to the contrary. LMAO

Rule #5, you're an idiot! Now, do the earth a favor & fall off it!

There are only two ways to get an elite QB.

1. Acquire a high priced FA.
2. In the draft if you happen to have a top 3 pick in a draft with elite qb's. (those opportunities come around rarely)
3. Trade up in the draft.


Option 2 is pure fortunate circumstances.

Options 1 and 3 are always going to be very pricey.

Do you want to wait another decade and hope, or pay up now to play?

Our team is ready NOW, This Year for MVP QB Peyton Manning!

Posted by: Home for Christ's Sake ; ) | March 01, 2012 at 09:56 AM

Here he goes again. Miami is ready to win now. LOL

With no right side to the Oline. With 3 D-Lineman signed. With 2 injury prone RB's. With no secondary & no pass rush.

YES, MIAMI IS READY TO WIN NOW

Move along folks, nothing to see here. Reading Home will only make you dumb!

Everyone wants to finally acquire an elite QB, but half of you are against paying for it.

You are endlessly hoping aging vets or other teams cast offs will magically become stellar once putting on a dolphins uniform.

Keep dreaming.

Pay up while there is something worth paying up for.

LOL
Only kidding, i really love Home.Home usually is the most astute fan on the blog.Never mind the fact that he is exactly right about Peyton Manning plus 5 draft picks ,including 2 first rounders.

Home, Great work man,truly wish you were our GM for the Dolphins.

Home
I know i post stupid shiieeet,but with Peyton Manning our team would be in the Play Offs this year.

this blog is worth paying 7 bucks a month so i can talk to Miami's number one fan, Home.

Home guaranteed that Peyton Manning will be our quarterback in 2012.
That is good enough for me.
I am going back to work now.
Thanks Home!

Love him or hate him,Home is the most accurate predictor of Miami Dolphin's football year in and year out.
Home has proven himself with his predictions on everything from scores, to conference records, to players about to be acquired beforehand blogging on the Sun Sentinel.
Personally i find Home sometimes annoying,but the fact is the guy is right on the money most of the time.
Long live Home!

This blog is hopelessly lost. Clyde, you're 100% right. RGIII is WORTH IT! It's time to acquire a YOUNG potential franchise QB.

Not a dead armed, soon to be retiree. When will this team & it's fans learn you can not build for a future with other teams castoffs!

Clyde you are absolutely right we should give up even our next 5 years first round pick for Griffin.Heck just give St Louis Rams our entire draft for the next two years and buy them a big handsome boat and maybe bake them a cake.
I'm a genius,like NJPHINFAN!

You know what's even more pathetic, is that Home is now using other names to bump his ego & throw support behing himself since noone else will LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Home, I mean Tim, I mean, Protecting the word from myself, home on the herald, home on the range, all your aliases...

GET A LIFE & A CLUE!

Man, there are a lot of people out there opposed to the idea of having a black qb. And there are a lot of people out there that like to paint all black qbs with the same brush. All of sudden rg3 is in the same group as Russel, pat white, Michael vick, and akili smith even though he has very little in common with any of these guys as far as personality, aptitude, physical stature, playing style, style of offense they played in, college they played for, conference in college they played in, era they played in college, or anything of any comparability other than their skin colour. All white qbs are judged individually. Andrew luck can't be Ryan leaf but rg3 must be pat white.

You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | March 01, 2012 at 10:25 AM

Especially Home. No one that dumb should be allowed to post in a public forum.

Farve was a fluke, a rarity. Even the healthiest QB's start declining at 36. They lose a step, lose a bit of velocity, they don't take hits as well, they don't heal as fast, they get injured more easily.

Peyton in top form would realistically have 2 prime seasons left, a little less than prime really. But Peyton after FOUR neck surgeries? Peyton with an arm still suffering from nerve issues? Peyton who may yet need more surgeries?

Peyton is the HIGHEST risk of the bunch, in terms of performing well.

I could care less about the cost of RG3, get him and then we will have him.

Home is not Tim. I am Tim and I agree with Home 99% of the time. He's right. I swear to God I am not Home.

Please dont call me Home.
I said i support Home and he is the most accurate predictor of Miami Dolphin football,that is a fact.
But,Home believes in the New World Order,chemtrails and God.All of which i do not believe in.

Tim Knight & Tim Couch are both Home.

Home is so desperate for a pat on the back.

Clyde you are absolutely right we should give up even our next 5 years first round pick for Griffin.Heck just give St Louis Rams our entire draft for the next two years and buy them a big handsome boat and maybe bake them a cake.
I'm a genius,like NJPHINFAN!

Posted by: Captain A-Hole | March 01, 2012 at 10:24 AM

Yes! I agree with all of that except for the boat! Let's not burn another decade hoping on late round picks and veteran castoffs. It's time to go shopping and be done with it!

Wait I am not tim knight.

I am Tim "the Leaf" Couch.

Sorry Tim Knight,i know Home is spot on,just busting his balls.lol

I must be crazy?

I must be nuts!

Home is dumber than a 2x4. How hard is it to make predictions like Manning to Miami? LOL

Calling Manning to Miami is kind of like saying the sun will come up tomorrow.

An Idiot can do it. Thats where Homely Homer Home comes in!

But who's on first?

Who's on second.What is on first.

Tebow is dating Taylor Swift!!! She should date me. I'm an NFL and college legend too!!!

What is on second.Where is on first.Who is pitching? What?

Mark, you gotta read through the weeds. Most racist posts here are from trolls, and they matter less than the dirt on the bottom of your shoe.

The respectable posters here have their reasons for or against RG3, but race doesn't play into their thinking.
