Still recovering from draft so enjoy this video

I got no news. I got no opinion. I got no speculation for you today. I don't want to talk about Jacoby Jones. Or Jabar Gaffney.

Sorry.

I do have this video montage below, sent to me by reader Joe Alvarez. Enjoy:

NJ has some of the wealthiest counties in the country. It's not all Newark. Lot's of old money in beautiful parts of the state.

Clue's knowledge doesn't go beyond what he thinks he learned watching sitcoms.

Andy, Are you slow or just an imbeilcle, I corrected myself when I said NJ was a state, it was right under my original blog post. Anyways it was a joke, everything excpet a scumbag state. Where's Pauly D and the rest of your Guidos?

Guido.

gasbag is a very angry person, lol. and talks a lot

Ohio is a very dumb person who denies the truth alot.

You see baby, how easy it is? Stop trolling me you troll!

If there is anybody in here in talking football?

Who do you think (or hope) will be the receivers that get the most playing time this year?

Hey Ohio, can you explain to us again how "he" is plural?

You should have tried to finish grade school.

Your questions are as bad as mine.

Ohio, did Armando get back to you on if Post & myself are the same? Odin is dying to know too.

Would love to debunk both of your theories with 1 stone.

Ohio -- I tremble at the thought our recievers.

Here are my assumptions

1) Keel Bess in the Slot

2) Play a lot of this Rooke Egnew kid who seems to be a vertical threat out of the TE position.

3)Hartline is a solid #2 receiver...though he is definitely not a #1.

4) I hope that Clyde Gates steps up - -but there is ZERO indication that will happen. This leaves the lethal combination of Legadu Nanee, Roberto Wallace, Marlon Moore, BJ Cunningham, Rishard Matthews and the ghost of Jeff Fuller.


We have a team of 2s and 3s. Nobody who can beat a double team. Nobody.

Gary, Hartline a 3 at best. Gates sucks, Wallace sucks, Were pretty much doomed at the position

Gary,

Thanks for your input

My prediction is one of our newly drafted receivers step up before Gates does. I hope I'm wrong, I hope with more opportunities the light comes on for Gates this year.

Yup Ohio.

Just when I think I can start trusting Ireland again he trades away our top WR and then waits until the 6th round to address the position in the draft.

If worst comes to worst though, we can always move Tannehill to WR.

Gary,

Tannehill was drafted at #8 to be a QB. I don't see him ever playing a different position than that, for better or worse.

I was a big Marshall fan on the field, but I've grown to respect that decision with his issues, he could have really hurt us.

But I do agree, I wish Receiver would have been addressed earlier in the draft. Although I do LOVE the Jonathan Martin pick. Solidifying that line will help what we are trying to do on offense.

Gary S,

I'm hoping the coaching staff and Ireland decided that's exact;y what is going to happen they will use Gates in a different way and believe he just didn't get good enough coaching and we all know that he didn't under Sparano.

But I know it's an open competition supposedly but I hope the thinking is let Tannehill sit, let's see what we have at WR and if we didn't find any acorns or develop Hartline or Gates to another level then 2013 draft is when we with #1 WR to give Tannehill more weapons to work with.

Clue Idiothead. Here is a list of the top 10 wealthiest counties in the country. 3 are in NJ. You are ignorant, probably educated by sitcoms and backseat ho's.

1 City of Falls Church, Virginia $113,313 3,595 96,449 5,613 16,864
2 Loudoun County, Virginia $112,021 1,833 103,817 1,477 8,204
3 Fairfax County, Virginia $104,259 955 104,335 709 -76
4 Hunterdon County, New Jersey $102,500 2,533 102,839 1,717 -339
5 Howard County, Maryland $101,003 1,325 95,474 1,128 5,529
6 Los Alamos County, New Mexico $100,423 5,635 101,687 4,364 -1,264
7 Douglas County, Colorado $99,522 1,394 106,754 1,402 -7,232
8 Morris County, New Jersey $96,316 1,374 99,559 1,085 -3,243

You mean you are tired of being wrong and looking stupid.

Clue,

I already stopped responding to you so feel free to stop whenever you want.

Ohio,


I have no reason to believe this coaching staff is better then the previous one.

Andy, Its obvious that I'm the more mature person, so I'll take the high road dirtbag..

Reality,

BELIEVE....we have nothing if we don't have hope.

At least we have a chance to be better now right? How would we be feeling right now if they were just going to continue trying the same thing?

Ohio,

Philbin is a novice HC. And he wasnt exactly highly sought after. Is he another Cameron? Another Sparano? Could be.

Clue,

I knew Andy was talking tongue-in-cheek about Tannehill and his girl. We should give each other a break on here (we're all Dolphins fans).

Ohio,

Look at what you've done bro! I'm not on ANYONE'S LIST anymore. Tim Couch had me #1. He kicked me off. And it's really all you're fault. You've ruined EVERYTHING for me on this blog. I went from notorious to ordinary. And I supported you. This is how you repay me?

Tim/Top 5, I'm going to work hard to earn your disrespect again. Maybe some extra long posts about QB or something. I'll figure it out. Stay tuned...

Lets hope not......its been long enough

Hope? Hey, I hope I hit the super lotto. But that has nothing to do with reality.

DC,

I'm sure you'll beat me out again at some point. You are much more winded than i am :)

We might not know what Philbin is (as a HC), but we do know what he ISN'T. And that's every single HC that's been here since Shula.

This guy has come in and changed things immediately. The focus of the team, the systems, the offense. This is all new. And that bodes well, since everything old led to mediocrity.

Not saying Philbin might not also be mediocre, but at least we'll be doing it in a different manner as before. And if this doesn't work, we'll need to try something new (until SOMETHING works).

Ohio, yesterday you raved on your blog how you thought you shredded a troll to pieces.

Today, you are the one shredded to pieces. Why no mention on your blog about it?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Everyone seems to be asking when will Tanehill be able to start for the Dolphins.

He can help the team this very season either as backup or special teams QB, but asking him to start right away would be a mistake.

Next year we can release either Garrard or Moore on a performance basis and keep the QB contest going on. He should be able to win the starting role by then.

DC, Reality, Gary....

Do you any of you remember me being shred to pieces today? Must have slipped past me.

Anyway, thanks for continuing to visit my blog mr. troll, you are the only one who brings it up in here.

Moore is a top 10-12 QB. Tannehill may never start.

Moore is a top 10-12 QB. Tannehill may never start.

DC,

You know I don't care bro. If someone takes this blog so literally then they got a serious problem. Now if it's a legit football debate feel free to argue. I was trying to be funny but anyway.

I totally agree with your 12:16. Philbin is breathing new life into Miami. It's a different approach totally on offense and defense. I like the idea of the WC offense with it's own twist which remains to be seen what that is. I also love the idea of getting back to 4-3 or at least more of it. We all know the NFL is a copycat league but there can only be enough 3-4 players to go around. Not enough college defenses play the 3-4 therefore guys aren't the same with their hand off the ground.

It's clear Vernon Gholston was never a player but just like QB once guys lose confidence in their ability they lose track of everything on the field. In some cases like Gholston if he played with hand in the dirt he may have ended up being at least serviceable as opposed to sucking and out of the league. Those first couple years in NY had to kill his confidence.

Moore is a top 10-12 QB. Tannehill may never start.

Ohio, I for one do not remember you being shred on this blog. But there is a lot homoerotic anger, conspiracy theories and troll-countertroll accusations floating around this blog so it may have fell through the cracks.

Thank god Armando put his foot down though. I can't imagine what it would be like otherwise.

:)

When you do this, :) Seems kind of gay right?

You guys assuming Philbin will be a good coach and Tannehill will be a good QB are really reaching. I heard the same thing about John Beck, Chad Henne, Pat White, Nick Saban, Cam Cameron, and Tony Sparano. The newest Dolphins are great? Too funny. Take off the rose colored glasses and put down the kool aid.

I hear you Reality.

Nothing is certain until games are played.

Reality,

It may be just guys being optimistic and I am guilty of that as well. But it is widely known that Philbin was largely responsible for coaching up Aaron Rodgers and of course expecting Tannehill to be Rodgers is not a far assessment the point remains, Philbin has been successful in that regard.

What kind of blog post is that Armando!? Is Omar Kelly guest blogging for you?
I'm mean, more than half the time you got nothing worthwhile to say, but you are always able to spin 400-500 words of vacuous and trite platitudes to cover this dearth of insight.
I mean...you not only write for a living...you write columns about the Miami Dolphins for living.
So give us some of the good stuff...the juice.

I don't post much but read everyday...post of the day for me so far!

And we still cant attract good FA's with Ireland as GM.

Ohio,


I'm sick of hearing how great the newest Dolphins are before they've even stepped on the field. Show me and I'll believe.

Reality -- it is all about baby steps.

The Dolphins' problems over the past ten years lie at the feet of Dave Wannstedt.

There have been other debacles (Drafting Ted Ginns family, Pat White, 'I will not be the coach at Alabamma', Orgasmic fist-pumps after field goals, asking players if their mother was a prostitute, etc etc etc). But go back to the late Wannstedtian period -- go back to Ricky Williams walking the world smoking weed, Gus Ferrotee concussing himself, the desperate Lamar Gordon signing, blowing a 2nd round pick on EDDIE MOORE! etc etc...and it is clear that the Miami Dolphin Decade of humiliation belongs to Dave Wannstedt.

It was almost like Dave Wannstedt's brain cells were oozing out of his mustache, leaving an empty hulk of meaningless coachspeak, terrible personnel moves and bad game management decisions. A trend he took to ruining the program at Pittsburg.

I don't know if Joe Philbin is the second coming of Don Shula or the 2nd coming of Cam Cameron -- but he is, at the very least, a year further removed from the mustachioed ones taint. He deserves our support as he tries to lead this program out of the fog and back into its rightful place as an NFL leader.


not a fair assessmet

Super Bowls aren't won with Free Agents Reality, they are won through the draft and building up your own young players.

Clue, this is 2012. The guys you mention (except Brees, who's finished and was a one hit wonder) played when William "the refridgerator" Perry was considered a big nose tackle at 302. Todays guys are monsters, including the O linemen. No comparison to the 80s and before.

Today a QB must be 6'4" or above to win consistently.

Wanny was better then Saban, Cameron, or Sparano. He had a winning record with the Dolphins and won a coach of the year honor with the Bears. He was better than any of the coaches that followed him IMO.

Saints won a SB with great FA's

TGH, I like Moore too, but to say that Tannehill may never start is flat ignorant and robs you of all credibility. I guarantee you he will start at some point. I don't promise you that he's the next Brady (he might be--watch the Chucky videos--he's got a great attitude and he's smart), but the 6'4" Tannehill will get at least 2 years to start, just like Henne did. I don't pretend to know when the Tannehill era will begin.

Also, it is obvious (I promise) that Tannehill is not a sissy like John "deer in headlights" Beck, who was literally scared and shite his pants when he went in. Did you see Tannehill play WR for 3 years?

Dude is an athlete comparable (but different) to Tim Tebow in athleticism and (good) attitude.

Tannehill was a good pick.

Also no comparison unathletic Henne.

Packers, Patriots, Steelers

All built up through the draft, and maybe would add a nice player through free agency here or there.

It also appears that Tannehill has a very (VERY) fast release. Also fast feet in the drop. Dude is good bro. I did not mean to compare him to Tebow as far as throwing. Tannehill is about 700 times a better passer than Tebow, with brains, 6'4", and good attitude to go with it.

Wanny was better then Saban, Cameron, or Sparano. He had a winning record with the Dolphins and won a coach of the year honor with the Bears. He was better than any of the coaches that followed him IMO.

**************************************************

That is an ironic post for someone named 'reality'. Dave Wannstedt won during his earlier years because he inherited Jimmy Johnson's players. He took that foundation and proceeded to slowly and methodically run it into the ground.

Speaking of Jimmy Johnson -- it is amazing what expectations will do to you. Jimmy was regarded as a dissapointment DESPITE taking the Dolphins to the playoffs 3 times in 4 years. Every poster on this blog would kill for that kind of record from Joe Philbin.

Reality, though I will say this... arguing about which post JJ Dolphins coach is the biggest moron is kind of like arguing which member of Jersey Shore is the biggest skank. It's all about degrees.

Here is my list of all time Dolphins head coaches

1. Don Shula
2. Jimmy Johnson
3. Todd Bowles
4. Jim Bates
5. George Wilson
6. Nick Saban
7. Tony Sparano
9. Cam Cameron
10.Dave Wannstedt

Gary Stevens ,

Wanny didnt have Jimmy's players when he won HC of the year with the Bears. I'm not saying he was a great coach but he was better then Saban, Cameron, or Sparano.

I guess I'm drinking the kool-aid on Tannehill.

I wasn't, then started watching some of the videos
and listening to him speak. I'm no longer in the 'sit
him for a year' camp.

Start him. He'll be mentoring the WRs and the other QBs purported to be in front of him on the depth chart, so, why sit him? Because he doesn't have the physical presence? That's totally untrue. Lacks experience? Then PLAY him! Get him the experience.

What's the downside of playing him anyway? What're we worried about? Not making the playoffs? gimme a break.

He's our best chance to make the playoffs.

Yes, I believe it. He's ready to run to the offense, so, let's go.

Wannstedt won close to 100 games as a HC in the NFL and had a winning record. He has multiple SB rings as an assistant and a HC of the year honor with the Bears. Cant tell me he's worse then Cameron, Saban, or Sparano.

Anyway, thanks for continuing to visit my blog mr. troll, you are the only one who brings it up in here.

Posted by: Ohio Dolfan | May 02, 2012 at 12:27 PM

Actually, FYI brings it up more than anyone. He's passionate.

I told you yesterday, when dumb presents itself, I will confront it(YOU).

I'm actually a BIG FAN of your blog! If it gets rid of you, Odin & a couple others, why would anyone be against it?

I guess I'm drinking the kool-aid on Tannehill.

No doubt. You havent considered he could be a bust.
