Dolphins sign a Lane

Apparently, the Dolphins philosophy has changed from rummaging through the remains of Dallas' 2000s disappointment to Texas A&M's more current disappointment. The team signed former Aggies fullback Jorvorskie Lane, who played under Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman when Sherman was in College Station.

Lane's also a brother of Packers tight end Jermichael Finley (most people would say Lane and Finley are "half-brothers" but I have a so-called "half-brother" and it feels an insult to call him anything other than my "brother.").

The fullback seems less like a Lane and more like an entire block at 5-11, 277. Not surprising, then that he Pete Johnson-ed his way to 49 touchdowns in 49 college games and 2,090 yards on 461 carries. He didn't get drafted in 2009 after he appeared unable to run at a too-robust-for-even-Woody-Hayes 290-295. He's spent time both the Indoor Football League and the Arena Football League.

 

My first thought was to wonder if he was related to former massive NFL fullback MacArthur Lane, a Pro Bowl back in 1970. Couldn't find any connection however.

The parasite is back to steal bloggers because he can't get a single one of his own. He bashes the bloggers here yet he still comes sniveling around to attract them to his cj blog.

Here is an example:

I’m so very impressed with the intelligent and thought out conversations about football in here today, when “other” blogs are drowning with crap posts. You fans are the class of the fan base…..

Jon (Ohio), on your own site you offend the bloggers here.

Why then do you keep coming here?


Why do you want to attract bloggers from here to your site when in your own words the posters here are crap?

The two questions above you refuse to answer.

Ohio that is just plain wrong. You really shouldn't do that. You will be judged accordingly.

Calling some of the posts going on crap is very different from calling all the posters her "crap". that was a great attempt at switching my words around though. :)

I've had great conversations with many here. Well I used to anyway.......

By your own admission, Armando asked you not to advertise your blog here. You are being disrespectful. You are using him for your own advantage against his wishes.

Tell me, where is your integrity?

Careful dude, you are going to get odin's attention and he will come here and babble bwaaa waaah all over the blog defending his buddy boy. Like blue skies said, it was nice to see at least a full page without odin puke all over it.

Notice how the longer odin stays away, fewer trolls appear and the talk is more on football? Magic.

whoa whoa its magic

If it is magic, then why can't it be ever lastng?

Remember when the Cleveland Browns were the biggest threat to take quarterback Ryan Tannehill from the Miami Dolphins? Well, longtime Browns writer Tony Grossi reports that Tannehill wasn't a strong consideration for the team. The Browns simply had too many questions about the former Texas A&M quarterback.

"Ryan Tannehill had the size and the arm, but his maturity as a quarterback and field leader were so lacking that he turned [the Browns] off in personal interviews," Grossi reported. "He didn't project as a leader."

http://espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post/_/id/43185/browns-questioned-tannehills-leadership

Well we will see who was right. Sherman knows him well better than Holmgrem. Of course he doesn't have the maturity yet, his experience is limited, but if he can develop that, all will be well.

By your own admission, Armando asked you not to advertise your blog here. You are being disrespectful. You are using him for your own advantage against his wishes.

Tell me, where is your integrity?

Posted by: Ohio is a scum sucking parasite. | June 06, 2012 at 02:34 PM

Yeah and Armando told YOU to stop impostoring and keep it clean.

Uh Huh ;)

Look in the mirror.

Too late to apologize - ROTFLMAO!

HELLO-O-O-o-o.........

(I doubt there's anyone here to even read that)

Oh well - Bhwaaaaaa Haaaaaa Haaaaaa!!!!

ohio's boy toy odin is back to stick his...ur...chest out for him. well it was nice not having his puke here while it lasted.

Blue Skies.....(ahem).......

Shouldn't you be answering yourself back now as Coalition or FYI?

You know, agree with yourself about stuff.

That's always funny when you do that one. I never get tired of it - lol.

Come on........do it!

ROTFLMAO!

i wonder how much ohio is paying odin to be his body guard. or, maybe odin is paying him....with uh...lip service...sure looks that way.

let me guess, your hotties name is Jon?
Hahhahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaahahah......struck a nerve there eh? hehee

EWWWWWWWWWWWW!

I agree with the Browns, that Tannehill is a big reach at pick #8. I dont think he'll ever beat out a young and improving and team MVP Matt Moore.

The Browns spent 2 hours interviewing Tannehill. Sherman spent a few years coaching him. It's obvious who would have a better idea. That is the same Cleveland team that drafted useless McCoy just recently and have already replaced him.

It's funny how some fans will instantly believe another teams coaching staff knows better than their own. There are fans that route for their team to lose to justify their own negative lives.

Edgar, we have the worst FO and coaches in the league. How in the world can you think we have a better idea?? LOL

ron son- soprano was an AWFUL coach!!! a better coaching staff would have made the playoffs last year with that team!!! bad play calling, bad game tempo, absolutely predictable!! went into a shell with a lead, if in FG range took no chances. you think that was good coaching??? you are crazy if so. based on OTA's philbin and his staff is lightyears ahead!! speed. speed speed. practice fast, learn fast, think fast, play fast!!!

ron son- you were right in calling him a good guy. sporano was a nice guy but they finish last. he'll be a train wreck in nyc. dealing with sanchise/ytebow?? good luck!!

Scotty, Sherman and Philbin have coached Farve and Rodgers. I'd say they know something about evaluating QB's. I guess you think Cleveland knows better, the same FO that took Colt McCoy and replaced him after only 2 seasons and now drafted a QB who will be physically in decline in 4 years, real smart.

Is this one closed also

Edgar, Mike Holmgen(Cleveland)knows more football then the last 4 Dolphin HC's combined.

Fin 1984, Check out his record since he has been at Clevelan.....its been worse than ours. who cares about 20 years ago when he had a HOF QB that made him look good. Only today matters.

What is this other blog you speak of?

Got in late

Nobody live Blogging the game tonight? Double

I know why ALoco is quiet(check the score), but where are the rest of you guys?

How sad is it TVI (The Village Idiot) is just blogging away on the Parasite Ohio's Blog by himself?
Idiot Odin,Everyone except you has a life and is not Blogging for 48 stright hours.

Idiot Odin, What do you mean "Just got in", More like you just woke up due to Drinking all morning and afternoon and passing out.
Odin please end your life.

Lane is not going to replace anybody. DT come's from a low income family and couldn't afford a pro trainer and it showed. Watched about a half dozen games from a guy who's scholarship was for a option QB.He was a beast at RB. Did anyone see his last game against a top 5 Syracuse D in heavy snow? It was a bowl game in terrible cnditions and he hammered then from start finnish.

Coalition,

You've had 3 football related posts here in 3 (Count em)days - Bhwaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaa!

Not even two pages of dribble to boost YOUR "Blog Hit" quota - ROTFLMAO!

Ready for the punch line Einstein(snicker, snicker)?

WHAT on EARTH pray tell, are you advocating I be banned from? HAAAAAAAA - Ha!!!!

This ghetto dive that you've FINALLY managed to run in the ground?

You know better than most how bad this place has fallen. It's SOOOOOOOOOOO bad that the resident "TROLL(that would be you)even goes elsewhere for Dolphin Info.

The proofs in the pudding Sweet Cheeks. You had to go over and stalk me at DOLPHIN TALK just to have something to post.

You trashed this place SOOOOOO BAD that you have now stooped to ROUTINELY copying/pasting from Ohio's site. Talk about STEALING! You are now regularly stealing our posts at Dolphin Talk and posting them here at **Dolphins In The Depths Of DESPAIR**

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

We ALL warned you ahead of time DUMMY. We fought with you, pleaded with you, we BEGGED you to stop ruining the blog.

But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

You wouldn't listen. You made your bed, now quit whinning and lie in it! ROTFLMAO! You're getting just what you deserve(and deep down inside, YOU KNOW IT((smugly-LOL).

You whine about what **YOU** did so much, why if there was anybody at all left here, they'd be sick of listening to you(don't worry though, they ALREADY are and they ALREADY left). Nice work **SweetTard**.

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
-------------------------------------------------

PS: Don't think you tricked me into boosting up your "Blog Hit" Quota either. Just consider this a sympathy fvck for the Charity Case more commonly known as.........YOU...........The Blog Hit Troll ;)

I offered you a truce many times now.

All I stipulated too is that you NOT post at DolphinTalk anymore and I would/will GLADLY ban MYSELF from here.

As much as you claim to hate it, hate Jon(and his wife and unborn child) and the rest of us "REGULARS(U probably don't know what that is anymore do you ;), you'd think it'd be EASY for you.

Whats up with THAT?

Oh yeah, almost forgot: Bhwaaaaaaa Haaaaaa Haaaaaaa!!!!

Seriously! Whats got your panties in a wad THIS TIME?

It didn't have ANYTHING to do with THIS..........did IT?

Redsky, I see it the same way. But, it bugs me how much of a disappointment Lebron has been. I want him gone. I’m convinced he will never be a clutch player in big games.

Posted by: John Persh | June 06, 2012 at 12:48

redsky, stats aside, once again in the 4th quarter he didn’t want the ball. He’d catch the pass and dump it quickly off to someone else and run away, even when it wasn’t necessary. Wade attacks, he’s got game when it matters. Lebron doesn’t and never will.

Anywhoo………..if the series is tied and the Heat goes home(gains control)for game 7, what player would you say is most responsible?

In other words, who would your MVP be for tonights game?

Just curious?

BTW - How'd it feel when Jon was deleting yo........ah..........some belligerent and derelict posts from his blog the other day?

Kind of different from Armando in that he use to let almost anything and everything go. Anything and everything, except that which exposed you for being the dimwitted Blog Hit Troll that you are - lol.

You might not remember though, it was quite awhile ago. Back when you use to actually HAVE posters here-ROTFLMAO - AGAIN ;)

Funny thing is, Jon just deleted the degrading foul mouthed childish rantings and ravings. REGARDLESS of WHOM they were coming from.

Armando, on the other hand, deleted GOOD POSTS as well as BAD POSTS. His ONLY criteria apparently was in protecting him precious wittle Blog Hit Troll - LOL.

Whatever happened to:

"We have our ways, heh, heh?"

You remember that? You remember laughing and rubbing it in when honest well deserved responses to you were being deleted?

We have our ways to Bro, it's called Karma. And it can be a Beatch to those that don't respect it.............Heh, heh ;)

OK, ok........I get it(you sound like some poor guys whinny old beatch((as usual), but I get it.

1). "Idiot" - Check.

Ask any beatch and she'll tell you, Her Old Man's an Idiot.

2). "What do you mean you 'Just got in'? - Check.

I've stayed out all night MANY of times and they USUALLY just say, "Out all night again(4 words to Coalition's 8)"?

Leave it to Coalition to Out-Beatch a Beatch.

3). "you just woke up due to Drinking all morning and afternoon" - Check.

If I didn't know better, I'd swear I use to date this Punta. It usually translates more like this though:

You are NOT going to be lying around on your asss drinking all day just because you have a hangover(Oh boy, if I had a nickle for all the times I heard that one).

To be FAIR though, I don't blame Coalition for being so beatchy. It's OBVIOUS his MANs hasn't been treating him right.

4). Passing Out?

I don't get it? Passing out? What is this passing out you speak of?

Oh!

Ooooooooooooooh!

I get it. Coalition means when his Man falls asleep on him and starts drooling all over the back of his head(no wonder he's pissed off and ornery all the time).

NOPE Coalition, NOT ME!

I'm an Idiot and I'll drink all day and all night. I don't care what the clock says. But this "Passing Out" thing? It ain't for me. I'm not into this "Passing Out" thing of which you speak.

Not that there's anything wrong with that Coalition(wink, wink), but I don't drink at the "RainBow Room"

To each their own, but it just ain't my "Cup Of Tea" SweetTard.



Ohio wanted me to let you know his blog is really dead and he welcomes you to leave the crap posts here and go over there to liven things up. CYA there!

Dooh - LOL ;)

Anywhoo, the question is, why didn't you just respond to my posts at 11:07 and 11:13 DIRECTLY?

Let me guess, you thought it would be TOO OBVIOUS.........right?

Too Late!

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Hey Ohio,

Take a look at your dear friend odins endless babble posts above and tell me if those the type of posts you were referring to when you said the posters on your blog (like odin) were more intelligent and thoughtful?

Pathetic team = Pathetic blog

Ross cant get any money by building a winner, so he resorts to gimmicks like Hard Knocks, or honoring the opponent(Tim Tebow) , or proclaiming Henne was the 2nd coming of Dan Marino, or talking about retiring Tannehill’s # before he’s even played one down. Ross, save the Dolphins, SELL THE TEAM!!

Ross, great business man. You watch, he will sell the team in five years for a huge profit. He is stinkin rich, he has won already, he doesn't give a hoot about who wins a silly game, why should he? It's all about money.

jt @ 04:50 AM

I hear ya. That dude has shown up on a couple of blogs and in no time slums them down.

Ray,

Ross isnt making a profit on the Dolphins anytime soon. Huizenga got a huge price from Ross plus the fan base has dwindled significantly. Forbes estimates the franchise value has dropped about 200 million since Ross took over.

Ross also lost the lease on the Marlins and is in desperate need of a new stadium with a roof. Sun Life is also ending their sponsership with the Dolphins and no SB coming to Miami on the horizon.

Stephen Ross has been frantically trying to con some more rich celebs into taking a piece of the Dolphins before the ship sinks completely...

Still - ROTFLMAO!

at 09:27 AM

ROTFLMAO!

at 9:53 PM

It was good, but I just can't believe anyone still comes here.

I've been reading alot of GOOD Dolphin info over at DolphinTalk.Wordpress.Com(hint, hint)..........

Classic Indeed!!!!

Apparently no one does.

Dear ALoco,

Miami Heat beat the Celtics.

Lebron James schooled your little group of sissies.

Bwaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaa Haaaaaaa!

Celtics my AZZZZZZ!!

Herbert, what happened, got tired of peeing around? Have you considered maybe getting a pet turtle or a goldfish to occupy your time more productively?

tube of glue is just one more of odinplop's many names.

How can any one take ALoco seriously when his name translates to a crazy???

Barry as much as I like reading your writing where is Armando? Is he in rehab. Is this a forced vacation? My main question is how come you and other Miami Herald Blog writers can keep writing while Armando who has the #1 blog on the Herald has to take multiple furloughs and vacations. Bring Armando back the other blogs are simply not as good as Armando's. No offense.

Persh,

I hate to blunt, but your full of shyt Dude.

You started stalking with John Persh’s name way back when you were hating on me because I played Bass Guitar in a Semi-Famous Rock Band.

(Which BTW, Hershey Candy Bars will be using another of our songs in a new ad campaign )

It’s in the archives. You know it(as you often go back there to copy/paste)I know it and probably a lot of the guys here remember it.

Your pitiful Dude.

This from TVI Odinsmell
Dude, Please kill yourself.

The Dolphins didnt want a pro bowl diva receiver in Marshall but they're looking at a crap diva receiver in Ochocinco? WTF? I think Ross is just being a CHEAP SOB!

"CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports that the Dolphins will work out free agent Chad Ochocinco this coming week.
Ochocinco wants to play for the Fins, and there seems to be at least some mutual interest. For a guess on what it might cost to sign Ochocinco, Lee Evans inked a one-year, $1.497 million contract with the Jaguars in April. The deal included a $250,000 signing bonus, with nearly $200,000 available through weekly in-season bonuses as long as Evans is on the Jags' game-by-game roster."

The guy is clearly done & he's an incredibly annoying human being. The focus needs to be on developing the young WR's on the roster & not on babysitting a diva whose skills have eroded. This would be a bad idea & exactly what we don't need but then again so is "Hard Knocks."

If we're still looking at veterans that might actually help this team we should sign Jake Scott in case Jerry is a flop at RG. With that said I'm shocked that Scott still remains unsigned by 32 teams.

So OchoCinco couldnt even make the Pats roster but he’ll be the #1 receiver on the crap Dolphins! LMFAO!!
