Handful of starters likely to miss Carolina game

The Dolphins want the third preseason game to be their dress rehearsal for the 2012 regular season. They'll treat the week like a regular game week. Starters will probably play into the second half. By the time the game is over, the club wants direction on its starting quarterback for the start of the season.

So what does that make the second preseason game?

The game Friday night against Carolina?

An off day for a handful of veterans.

This week has seen more players miss practice due to some sort of bump, bruise, tweak or twitch than at any time during the preseason. And most are likely to miss the Carolina game as the team focuses in on the greater importance of the Atlanta Falcons in the third preseason game.

That means as many as five starters will sit out Friday night.

Don't expect two-thirds of the starting linebackers to play as neither Karlos Dansby nor Kevin Burnett have practiced this week. Don't expect Cameron Wake to play as he continues to recover from an undisclosed injury after being involved in an auto accident. Don't expect to see backup defensive tackle Tony McDaniel. That's three starters on the front seven and a key backup likely out.

On offense, don't expect to see starting right guard Artis Hicks. Obviously wide receiver Brian Hartline will not play. Neither will quarterback David Garrard, who was supposed to start last week before suffering a left knee injury and is not yet one week into a three-to-four week rehabilitation period after urgery.

You would think the Hicks injury opens the door for Eric Steinbach to make the much-expected charge to the starting unit. But no. He's got an undisclosed injury as well and hasn't practiced the past couple of days and is questionable to play.

So what does this all mean?

Well, John Jerry probably starts at right guard.

Gary Guyton and Jason Trusnick will fill in for the injured starting linebackers. Rookies Derrick Shelby or Olivier Vernon will likely start at defensive end.

OR IT COULD ALSO SERVE AS UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE MILLENIA! LOL

Home makes onions cry

EVEN CALLING HOME AN IDIOT COULD BE GIVING FAR TOO MUCH CREDIT!

YG'S A F'''N MORON!!!!!!!

Bill, the sad part of it is that he proclaims to be a 45 year old retired entrepreneur. Just goes to prove that luck favours the dumb.

Can't attest to whether he may be retarded or suffereing from some sort of early onset dementia. His posts indicate some symptoms but only a doctor can daignose for certain.

HOME,

IF IM A MORON, THAT MAKES YOU A MOROFF! LOL

Home is a horribly obese male sitting in his moms crack house eating donuts.

Whats the purpose of playing a game if a handfull of players are going to be out of the game. I do not understand this situation.

IF IM A MORON, THAT MAKES YOU A MOROFF! LOL

There is no question about it, you ARE a moron.

Mark In Toronto,

I think you relate to HOME a lot more than you're letting on.

You're both the same egg, just when it split and you became twins, HOME was furthest away from your mother's oxygenated blood cells.

Good one Mark stuck in Toronto :)

It's True,

You so crazy.... LOL

Mark stuck in Toronto,

Your twin brother Home is right. At least he wasnt dumb enough to get "stuck in Toronto". LOL

Cam Philbin wont be around next season after 2-14. LOL

HOME,
IF IM A MORON, THAT MAKES YOU A MOROFF! LOL

2.5 million people are currently being held captive in Toronto.

Toronto is a top secret government experiment to create a worldwide "MATRIX" device. Just like the movie. LOL

Yesterday Gnome, heres what I do know. You're an idiot.

Mark the office boy,

See any chemtrails out the window while stuck in Toronto?

HAHAHAHAHA,

Tell your mother my answer's still no. Last time she got laid she had you! LOL

If there is 1 person on this earth dumber than me, it's Home.

This message was read off a teleprompter.

The last time I got laid your mom and sister had to wiggle out of all the ropes and duct tape afterwards...

fyi yesterdays gnome, adding lol after your posts doesn't make it funny. but, i'm sure you know that since no one ever acknowledges your "attempted" humor.

= = =
lol.

I just love the way Home sniffs my poop soiled panties.

LOL

( . )Y( . )


sarah. is that u?.
lol

Guys! Look, it's me....Yesterday's Gone. I bet you're wondering why I changed my name! Long story!

OK Fans

POLL TIME

Who is the most hated poster on the blog?

A) Odinseye

B) Yesterdays Gone

C) Home

HOHOHO!!

Pollster, please add Craig M to the options

home. was that u who put up the characters making and arm with a birdie finger saying f u to tim knight on the ss blog many moons ago.?.
lol

ONGAMORRhead? HOOOOHoooHoo!!

truth,

I'm rught here. Thanks for thinking about me. It's always encouraging to know I'm not far from your thoughts.

Looks like another day on this blog....same shyte! About 15 per cent football talk and 85 per cent insults and complaints. Pretty typical.

Got a chance to watch the first two 'Hard Knocks' shows. It's now clear to me that a lot of the players have had very poor coaching to this point in their careers from Sparano and company. Specifically, the DBs. How is it that guys like Davis and Smith can show up to camp out of shape and unmotivated? Just amazing to me! What's very clear from watching the show is that these two are top tier talents that just aren't playing to the level they should be. Good for Philbin for kicking Davis' a**. Hope he gets the message and gets it turned around before the dolphins kick his a** to the curb.

Can I split my vote between Home and Flipper Tool???

Keep them coming, keep them coming

it was 1 huge pizza party with spazano and fatcells at camp davie.
lol

Pollster,

Your mother just called. She told me to tell you please be nice to YG so YG would consider being nice to her.

But...... I told her my answer's still no. The world doesnt deserve anymore you's. LOL

Please add an all of the above to my previous request & that's my choice.

spazano likes his db's fat and slow just like his o-linemen.
lol

truth, I need someone to 2nd the motion to add Craig M (use another name hint,hint)


Mark, yes you can split your vote

it sure is the same thing. wouldn't be the same if you didn't come here to whine about what others are posting about.

THIS DUD GETS MY VOTE!

I think you are all twisted. This is a site to talk about our belowed fish and i think you are all not tAKING THIS SITE TOO SERIOUS.

You hear me edikah?

Can I split my vote between Home and Flipper Tool???
Posted by: Mark in Toronto | August 16, 2012 at 03:12 PM

Do you mean the same way both you and are split from your mother's singular egg? Im still having difficult time determing whether it was you or home whom suffered most from your mother deoxygenated blood cell count during fetal incubation. LOL

Exactly my point pal....go f*ck yourself and all your split personality types. Go seek some professional help while you're at it. Something seriously wrong with someone who obsesses about fellow bloggers and can't even do it under one name. I'm not a professional in that area but to me that screams out someone who's in need of psychiatric help.
