Dolphins issues and answers on the menu

Do you want to know what kind of shape John Jerry looks like he's in?

Do you want to know my thoughts on Clyde Gates?

Do you want to know which quarterback looked better during the first day of the Dolphins' veteran minicamp?

Do you want to know why the Dolphins cannot afford to lose Cameron Wake? (This one is troubling because he's threatening to sit out if he doesn't get a contract extension and the Dolphins are holding fast to the idea he's not going to be paid what the best NFL pass rushers are paid.)

But the look of the Miami defense without Wake is not good. Jamaal Westerman? Really?

All these issues will be discussed on my radio show, Armando and Perkins, this morning from 6 to 10 a.m.

Meanwhile, we must congratulate coach Joe Philbin for his first Dolphins practice. In that practice, I was taken aback by Miami's need in the deep secondary. Chris Clemons and Reshad Jones, neither of whom has locked down the starting free safety job in previous years, are the assumed answers in Miami's deep secondary.

And as far as leadership is concerned, well, the loss of Yeremiah Bell is being felt.

“Y.B. has been the leader around here for a long time and to not see him is definitely strange,” said cornerback Nolan Carroll. “But we’ve got to adjust to it and grow from it as a group. There aren’t a ton of guys capable of [filling his shoes] in terms of leadership. But that’s why we’re out here — to find them.”

I am very easy to figure out and I've already said this. I don't care who you are in here or what you've said. If I feel (meaning it's obvious) someone is being unfairly ganged up on or criticized I will stand up for them. I play no favorites. I hate bullies. I will not stand by and watch someone be bullied without stepping in. The only thing a bully understands is a taste of his own medicine. It's unfortunate that good people have to lower themselves to that level but bullies leave us no choice. If I have ever been mean to you ,,,,know that you were bullying someone. Test it, go back and pick an instance that I was ever mean to anyone and see where it stemmed from. That is all, I am a simple guy to figure out, not complicated in any way.


oscar who, Pal?

Craig M,

It's a slim possibility but still possible Reid would trade up to get Tannehill. At seasons end its widely know Reid barely survived and he needs an instant impact plug and play kind of player in this draft. They gave Vick a $100 million and something like 50 guaranteed so trading up to draft a QB to sit doesn't make sense at all financially. I know contracts aren't what they once were but still a top 10 QB and a $100 Qb on same pay roll doesn't make sense to me.

The Eagles also have too many holes to fill to take that luxury pick. They need DT, OLB who can tackle, safety who can tackle, Offensive line help.

So outside of Fletcher Cox they have been linked to Dontari Poe and Michael Brockers at DT, Kuechly if he slips and Barron as well. They even was talk of them linked to Melvin Ingram and Coples even though they have Babin and Trent Cole.

Andy Reid is the ultimate planner when it comes to QBs. He's always got a plan B and I happen to think his plan B could be Tannehill.

Where do you drum up this total fantasy stuff? Reid is the ultimate planner? Compared to who? He always has a plan B? Like Kolb Vince Young and hanging with no viable backup? Sheesh dude. Your fantasy opinion is off the charts.

You should publish your observatios here. But We are benign and don't want to take your livelihood away.

Hey Feedles (if that's even your name),

I've you've got nothing of value to offer, why don't you shut the f*ck up. I was talking to Andy and anyone else who had an opinion on the subject. That obviously doesn't include you, so find someone else to harrass....capice!

Ireland Is Content With All His Acorns..Bumbling Fool...

Just once I would like to come on this blog and talk football only. All the immature fake name/trolls and all the immaturity is ridiculous. Grow up guys seriously. I'm not calling anyone out but let's have football debates and talk football.

Theres gonna be so much pressure on Ireland to take Tannehil and he knows he'll be crucified if he doesnt. Unfornetley, this is the wrong pick and we'll be the 2003 Detroit Lions for the next 3 or 4 years. We need to stack the defense up and become the 49ers of the AFC.

YG DB aren't there some drunks in the park you can make friends with? They should love you.

When do the Eagles pick Craig?

YG seriously,,,and everyone else too. Is it not obvious this is all the same person who got his feelings hurt. He disrespects people, gets called out for it, then changes his name and starts attacking everything everyone says.

It's so blatantly obvious and hopelessly pathetic. My only hope is that he grows up quickly and learns how to talk and debate in an adult manner or he just disappears. He had me fooled for a moment but it's obvious who it is.

Either way and in the meantime, everyone has to just ignore any posts that are of the bullying attacking nature. He doesn't want to talk about football and would rather argue with strangers in a he said she said fashion. It's old and tired. Just ignore the person and let him talk to himself about us in his 50 alter egos. Who cares, just ignore.

Yg is a very gifted Person. He just has not realized that there is a huge amount of Persons that are more gifted than him, including some that make it part of their work the getting rid of asssholes from Internet.

Phin78,

Maybe we just have to learn compassion for this troll. Obviously he's being bullied in his neighborhood and this is the only way he knows to cowardly fight back.

This troll is the prime example of being neighborhood bullied. He is the face of those who are being neighborhood bullied throughout America.

He just has a cowardly way of expressing that here.

Andy,

I get what you're saying but think about it for a second. 34 year old QB, misses a lot of games, no real back-up plan in place. Along comes a kid that can be groomed for a couple of years. I don't think the Eagles have nearly as many holes as you do, Andy and I see them as a playoff team this year. You're right that Reid needs a good season to keep his job but I think with a full offseason the Eagles will be much better prepared for this season.

So how is the troll issue going today??

:)

LOL, osccar burn YG again!

PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHAT I TOLD ARMANDO THE OTHER DAY

This blog is FULL of talkers who are too sensitive that they can't handle a rebuttal being thrown back at them.

When they are challenged, they attack & question their ability to respond to them!

Hey Craig M, if you insist on talking as much as you do, expect to have it thrown back in your face. Try to react like a man.

Don't act like a baby when someone challeneges you.

Put up or shut up.

Im sure after reading my lastly post, tears are forming in the corner of the troll's eyeys.

But I'll hand him a hankie, instead of sand paper, to wipe with. LOL...

Le cogieron el cu-o a Yg, en el barrio, cuando joven.

I might actually take the trolls over the people that come in here when something "big" happens just to talk about how much they "hate the dolphins" or the same RTARD "fireland" or "Tannehenne" or "we suck/are pathetic" posts. At least the trolls are humorous some of the time. All the nimrods that will come on here during and after the draft with their super sized wamburger and french cries are what get me to click the X in the upper right hand corner.

The entire blog is falling apart. Serveral times our post have double posted. LOL

411,

Thanks so much bud. Looks like you've shown me the light. I'm so fortunate to have found my saviour....moron!

Fireland, Tananhenne, we suck and forever will. Were doomed to mediocracy until the end of time, which iss Dec 21st 2012

Either Fletcher of Tally with 8 and I'm happy.

Some people still think this is all the work of 1 person.

How naive can you really be?

A decade and counting of irrelavance from the Dolphins team..

Thavafin,

Wouldn't all the Fireland and "we suck" people just be considered glorified trolls trying to get attention anyway?

just sayin...

We always start with One. Then we go after the others, if any.

Ohio, I call a spade a spade, if we suck, which we do, whats the problem with saying we suck? Many of you are homers with blinders on.

Craig gave an opinion and here was the response;

"Where do you drum up this total fantasy stuff? Reid is the ultimate planner? Compared to who? He always has a plan B? Like Kolb Vince Young and hanging with no viable backup? Sheesh dude. Your fantasy opinion is off the charts."

Insulting and condescending. This is not an adult way to debate someone with whom you disagree. This is how a child goes about it because they don't have the mental capacity to discuss topics in a rationale and objective manner. They get mad because they can't intelligently articulate their thoughts and that's why a child lashes out.

This person thinks we are in here to challenge each other when we are in here to discuss a team we all root for. He doesn't understand that this isn't the WWF or NWO. This is a football blog on the internet, there is no reason to challenge anyone, debating can be fun when done respectfully.

I hope we draft Tannehill. At first, I wasn't very keen with the idea, but after further scrutiny, I say we should pick him.

The kid can throw deep, and is as fast as many recievers.

Might be you are right Ohio.
I reckon either way the contribution level is non-existent.

Clue,

Saying we suck isn't what i was talking about.....some change their names to the different "Dolphins Suck" screenames that's all.

Being realistic is a good thing in my opinion, I like your point of view. I will admit I lean toward being a homer sometimes, I can't help but pull for my phins.

Yes everyone, if you express a personal opinion "expect to have it thrown back in your face", because that's what all rationale adults do right?

Craig M,

WHEN YOU TALK, PEOPLE WILL TALK BACK.

When you talk as much as you do, YOU WILL GET EVEN MORE TALK BACK.

If you can't handle it or are going to attack every person who challenges you, dpon't bother posting.

You say it's a blog for people to express themselves, LET THEM. Or can they only speak if they aren't critical of you?

He threw what you said RIGHT back in your face. Instead of disucssing it, you call names & cut & run like a girl.

If you think I'm a moron, imagine how people feel about you!

You're a disgrace.

I know I should be excited for the draft tomorrow. To be honest though, I am completely armoring myself against it. Fireland is probably going to do the (I don't care what anybody thinks) thing like he did in previous years and have us all reaching for the internet to find out exactly who Jared Odrick and Daniel Thomas were. BTW, nice picks you failed ginger kicker you. Why did Fireland pick out team to ruin? WHY?

Phins78,

You're wasting your time. You're dealing with a bunch of mental midgets. They're never going to change.

Oscar Canosa,

What are you saying? Dude you are a troll. The 100's of different troll names here that attack me, Im 99.9% certain they are you.

What many here dont realize, is you'll use the oscar troll name to pretend to be thier friend, then use the various other troll names to attack them.

Beware, Oscar Canosa carries a very sharp sumari ninja troll backstabbing knife. I can nearly 80% guarantee you, the troll knifing you in the back is Oscar Canosa! LOL

Ohio, I too pull for the phish and wish they constantley won 10 games a season, but Im not keeping my hopes up we'll make it the playoffs anytime soon.

No one will trade up for Tannehill except Miami. He will be there at 8. No doubt about it. Miami will draft him. No doubt about it.

Its going forward after that is what concerns me.

Clue,

Maybe it's better to to expect the worst and be surprised......I expect the best every year and have to deal with the heartbreak

Different strokes for different folks

You are paranoid, Pal.

everyone is a mental midget compared to you right? cause you so smart LMAO thats a good one!

speaking of change? i see you still postin the same junk for the last 3 years.

seems like you dont change neither!

Clue no problem saying we suck at all (if I may answer the question) because it's kind of true. Last year the Dolphins did suck threfore you could conclude that they still suck. But it's a new year, new coaches, new players coming in from the draft. So I just think people want some to be a bit more objective with their assessments. If you were to say "The Dolphins sucked!" No one will have a problem. But for me anyway I don't ever give up on something before I try. The season hasn't started yet and it seems that the statement "the dolphins suck" means you have already thrown in the towel. Being a homer means after 0-7 you still tell everyone how great you team is. It is not a word reserved for those who are simply waiting for results before declaring a definitive opinion on the team.

Craig M
"Mental Midgets"
Phrase of the day!
HAHAHHAH

411,

Geez man, not really sure what your level of education is but I'm guessing not very high. I threw something back in his face? Isn't he the one who initiated it? I'm looking for people to agree with what I say but as Phins78 has pointed out there's a right way and a wrong way to go about it. If you have a different opinion about something, GREAT, let's discuss it. When someone wants to just throw back slander and condescending comments, then now we have a problem. I guess you and the other moron didn't learn that in school. With the way you talk and right, I'm not surprised. When it all comes right down to it, I'm guessing there's not too much you've learned in life.

Folks,

When a troll name is attacking you here, think, OSCAR CANOSA. There's a 80% chance youre absolutely right.

Aloco's been here for years and he'll tell you the same. OSCAR CANOSA has been one of the greatest trolls here going years on end now.

Just pulling you guys coat tail to an abvious fact. If it isnt OSCAR CANOSA trolling you, I guarantee at some point it was him.

put the friggin pads on hit some body in the mouth...the draft is fools gold.....no matter what we do like always it will be wrong....snake eyes fools gold follow the sheep......

Cheers guys.....I have better things to do than waste time talking to some of these morons.

I have asked myself a 1000 times if I'm delusional, a blind folded homer, as they say. I still don't know, bot I'm paying for my Entertainment(like Gambling). So, Fukk you.

woim, it was f'n parcells that flattened the phins.

Craig I'm trying so hard but they don't seem to understand. And it's scary because what I'm saying is so obvious, how do they not understand? Oh well, moving on,,,, talk to you guys later. Can't wait for tomorrow night.

oscar, say it ain't soooooo.lol
