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.

A season record of 6-10 is rather ambitious right now.

I'd be happy with 3-13. It's a goal that's within reach.

Some of you hate Ireland so much I wonder if its really that you hate your own lives.

I'm watching reruns right now of the 2007 preseason. Good stuff.

What's up losers?

Haven't needed to stop by in awhile. I found a way to jizzle in my own mouth.

I leave for 6 months and when I come back it is all the same person (Mando), still posting the same s hit under the same 12 names.
Dude when you add up the hours are you even making minimum wage?
I doubt it.

That's Mando riding my saddle at 9:49

My turds are KKK white

I bought the General Lee

Some hate Ireland so much they exaggerate to prove a point.

Marsha is not even in the top 5 in the NFL.

Also quick to say he failed and overreact on everything he does.

U have to remember he hired Philbin, he drafted T-Hill.

Also u guys put 8- 1st rd picks and Ireland's pick don't look that bad compared to recent history.

Fletcher or Davis?

Pouncey or Carey?

Long or anyone else?

You ever notice how 12 different handles in here always say the same broke a ss stupit s hit?
I mean seriously first you blame Henne for the 1-15 season (he was in college) and now you still blame him for how horrible the organization looks this summer.
Why?
Because Henne is German for Jeffe that's why.

Joe you look like C3PO for real

Thanx Dashi,

I promise to send that naked pic autographed

Aloco=Cuban Menace=Kris=Yesterdays Gone=Dusty Bottoms=White Swallow=Mando

Sheeesh

WTF

I left off all of the variations of Odin: Odin's As shole, The Coalition to Ban ..., etc.
All variations of Odin are Mando also.

TheSMF = Pricemaster = Phuc Yu

Seriously.
Think about it.
What makes more sense:
1. There are 12 seperate individuals, all on disability, no responsibilities to work and all are interested in the phins and this site?
or
2. There is 1 individual, that needs an audience in order to stay employed, covering the worst team in the state by far, has lots of time on his hands, and keeps himself employed by perpetuating this site?

TheSMF's favorite topic? Load swallowing...and he complains about others. The guy has an underdeveloped brain and he will talk like a teenager in a lockerroom until he dies.

SMF MEANS

S=SUCK

M=ME

F=FRIEND

TheSMF = Gay Sociopath.

How much proof do you need?

TheSMF means:

Matt Moore is our QB he throws the ball far with his eyes closed I saw his picture.

SMF @ 10:12,

is edipus with strong sex desire for his mom, yukky she is nasty

Want to see my penis

SMF,

Tell your mother the answer5's still no. Last time she was laid the world ended up with you.

EEEEWWWW YOU TO OLD !

YG

This SMF want to be dad and brother at same time

Does anyone remember Tawana Brawley? circa 1987. Al Sharpton. Brooklyn PD all of that?

The Tawana Brawley hoax inspired a manhunt all over New york State for a white racist who was terrorizing black NYC girls. Tawana was the only one ever supposedly terrorized.
Anyway upstate New York police arrested a man named John Kiernan during this time. JK was a homeless drifter who was found sodomizing a corpse in the woods upsate NY. He was never charged with murdering the corpse.
He was just walking through the woods, found a corpse and decided on the spot to sodomize it.

Now imagine the Dolphins are a corpse.
Think of all the acorns that have come along and sodomized it in the past 5 years:
You can start with Parcells, Ernest Wilford, NoodleArm Pennington, Jeff Ireland and move forward or
Start with David Garrard, Ochocinco, Marc Columbus, Igor Olshansky etc and work backwards.
Your choice.

yg you sitting on tree with smf sounds sexy

Was the corpse a man cause thats hot !

Cam Philbin = 3CPO

I think the corpse was a women but I'm not sure.
It was newspaper story 25 years ago.
It stuck with me because at the time I thought it was the most bizarre thing I'd ever heard.
And it's kind of funny (as long as you're not related to the corpse).

The Dullfins will experience something new this week....playing in front of fans LOL

I thought SMF Stood for

Silly
Mexican
Flaggot

Just Saying

On the Whole Multi-Identity thing, That's a select a few. I get the whole Using Favre, or Ireland as a Name to Make the Joke Funnier. (Don't worry Jeff already sent me naked Pictures of the Cheerleaders)

I just don't get the Different names just to state ur opinion. Nothing Wrong with being wrong every once in a while. Unless something happen long ago that cause this to happen. Odin, Oscar, Aloco, or some other old timer here probably can explain it best.

On ur other Questions

This blog will survive even without a reporter. Just as long as they don't make it an obstacle course to blog like the SS. People were blogging here just the same even without The Regularly Scheduled Moderator.

I believe Mando won't stoop that low for an Audience. We would get multiple post in a day if that was the Case. Even if its a Re-Post. Like they u'se to do at the SS a couple months back til they committed Blogicide.

But I wonder if Home is the Same Clown that U'se to go by Truth at the other paper. Alot of the same Antics. Undercover Jet Fan.

Hey Clown, T-Hill's more Accurate with his left than tebow is. And T-$izzle is not even left handed.

Dashi=Odin's a sshole=Kris=Mando=White Swallow etc

...From earlier today..

So I am surely in the minority here that isn't sure that Tannehill Should be named the starter as of now. My stance is he isn't going anywhere, let the preseason run it's course. When Philbin has seen enough during the evaluation he will make his choice.(it could be as early as Saturday..who knows) If it makes you feel better to make the call now(Tannehill will be the day 1 starter)Cool..For me, I need to see more. No shame in making a decision after gathering a little bit more information. Besides, these are our own opinions about the team. No awards for being right, no sitting in the corner for being wrong.

Tannehill will be the starter..I'm not debating that. I'm just trying to make the point that it is very possible that he struggles. Should Moore play solid during this time, how can Philbin sell to his team that Tannehill play now? I'm sure the team is looking at the first 4 games as an opportunity to get off to a good start. Think about Tennesse last year..Same sort of scenario(although I think Hasselbeck is twice the quarterback Moore is).He took the team by the horns, and they got off to a great start..Is it unreasonable to think that Moore given the same opportunity could do the same for us? then what?

I know this is a bunch of it's ands and buts. hopefully Tannehill plays lights out with the first team, and continues to outplay the group in practice. This in turn makes the choice easy.

DD,
You are ignoring reality:

David Garrard is the starter and Matt Moore is his backup.
David Garrard is the starter and Matt Moore is his backup.
David Garrard is the starter and Matt Moore is his backup.
David Garrard is the starter and Matt Moore is his backup.

If David Garrard cannot start week one then Moore will.
Then Garrard will take over week 2 because:

David Garrard is the starter and Matt Moore is his backup.
David Garrard is the starter and Matt Moore is his backup.
David Garrard is the starter and Matt Moore is his backup.

Stop having delusions of Tanne

BTW Darryl Dunphy=Mando=Odin's Foul a sshole=Kris=bobbyd12=Oscar Canosa= Aloco etc.

NFL Network reporting:

DOLPHINS HAVE SIGNED PENNINGTON

SMF...How about this. Garrard won't even make the roster. You think the Phins ar going to pay him his salary just to keep him on the roster week 1? I don't. if they release him before week 1 we are off the hook. Should Tannehill continue to impress, and if he is indeed named the teams starting quarterback..sianara Garrard.

DD,
I believe you are really Mando but whatever.
According to Mando (you) and the depth chart released by the team, Garrard is the best QB on the roster and the starter.
When a player comres back from injury he resumes his place on the depth chart.

Maybe Tanne is the best QB ever to live.
The facts are he got his head coach fired (Mike Sherman) and started more games at WR than at QB in college.
Oh yeah the Phins never set out to get Tanne.
First they tried to get:
Peyton and then
Matt Barkley and then
Matt Flynn and then overreached for
Tanne (after fans hired a plane to fly an advertisement requesting that Jeff Ireland be murdered)

Dolphin's QBs do 1 THING CONSISTENTLY: get thier coach Fired!

Matt Moore: Got John Fox and Tony Soprano FIRED IN CONSECUTIVE YEARS

David Garrard: Got Jack del Rio fired after years of mediocrity

Tannehill: Got Mike Sherman, the current OC, fired from Texas A & M

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha

..SMF..I assure you I'm not Armando.

Look. it is the same scenario as last week, except the tables are turned. Garrard got injured. He hasn't played in a year. This is dependant on what Tannehill does. But lets just say he wins the starting job, heck if it makes you feel better. Say Moore wins the starting job. Garrard was brought here to be a stop gap. Plain and simple. Even had he stayed healthy and played out the year. What are the odds he would remain a Phin next year? Not real good IMO.

Then we have Devlin. A guy that is flying under the radar. Would the team risk another team signing him should he be relegated to the practice squad again? He may not be starting material. But future backup..Yup. So would we hold a spot for an often injured stop gap that is going to be gone, over a guy that right now needs work, but has a future in this league(all be it as a backup) It is a decision the team will have to make. I may be wrong. But think Garrard will be a victim of the numbers game. Even with his good showing during camp.

DD, Grow up.
This is business.
Ross needs a business loss to offset his profits from his other investments.
So do J Lo and Marc A.
The way it works is:
Ross blames Ireland, Ireland blames Philbin, Philbin blames Garrard and they all get paid for 1 more year.
Wonder why no top free agents sign here?
Open your eyes dude (Mando).

Garrard can be scapegoated today.
Moore is 50/50 as a scapegoat.
Tanne can't really be scapegoated although J'vlle and StL have tried it with Gabbert & Bradford

The bright side:
I think the most valuable guy drafted was the tackle out of Stanford.

Q; What do Brady, Brees, Rogers etc have in common?
A: 6 seconds to throw

Time to throw is King but no one talks about it.

SMF...What does keeping Garrard have to do with a buisness loss? The reason we can't sign top free aents is that Irleand has done a masterful job screwing our salry cap(most dead money on our pay role then any team in the division)..We can't afford to pay top dollar. Getting rid of BM's contract certainly helped. If Dansby doesn't get much better..He needs to get traded for what ever we can get too. Cutting him would cost us 9 mil. We will see what happens with Garrard. My gut says he is done here.

DD,
See my previous post about John Kiernan.
Why have no top FA's signed here in the past 5+ years. (1 exception: Dansby he signed here when we made him the top paid LB in NFL history look it up).

Bottom line Ross wants to lose money but he needs someone to be the scapegoat.
Enter Garrard: out of football for a year, gets $3.5mil contract, willing to take the fall. Moore is not a believeable scapegoat nor is Tanne.
Nest year Tanne will be a believeable scapegoat.
BTW Flynn, Garrard and Henne all got the same contract $3.5mil/yr.

First off U insignificant Turd. Dashi is Dashi. No imitations. Like Urself.

Ur Not that hard to figure out. U Paranoid Schizophrenic/DID

Always with the Continuous Dolphin hate. U should change ur name to 7-11.

Matt Barkley won't even be a 1st rd pick next year, Mark it down. He doesn't have the Measurable's to be in the 1st rd. Why do u think he went back?

Remember Matt Lienhart? He "could've" went 1st but decided to stay. Same agent that spoke to Matt, Spoke to the other Matt. Reality Check

Qb's do this because they know they won't go that high. Once they make Barkley throw some Passes he can't reach, Measure him at 6 ft Tall at best and he runs a 4.9. Barkley will drop to the lower part of the 2nd rd.

There is a Major Difference between a Pro Qb and A College Qb.

Matt Barkley's life is peaking right now. This season will be his best ever for the rest of his life. Similar to Tebow. Great College Player, Horrendous Pro.

The only person in "Consideration" Was Peyton. They gave Matt Flynn a Courtesy Visit. That's about it. They signed Garrard the Next day and had A.Smith in for a visit right after that. Not a Overwhelming interest in Both. Specially not in Matt.

U must be the only Naive individual who thought the Fins weren't going after T-Hill. Everyone in the NFL knew T-hill was at the top of our list. Some Experts still had the Fins picking T-Hill even if they picked up Peyton. They definitely had the fins picking T-hill even if they signed Flynn.

SMF stick to ur team and it's problems. Don't worry about the Fins. We all here wish U slip and Crack ur head open next time u walk in here while we are having a Bukkake Session with ur Mom's. Even Mando is joining in on that Fiesta.

P.S.- Stop repeating Stuff u said Earlier today. It's giving U away.

Only a Couple People here Post at Such a Feverish Pace. And to give everyone a Hint it's not Odin or Oscar. But the clown did go on a Mini Rampage today Berating the Dolphins. Which is the Only thing he does. Nothing Constructive about the team.

Always Lashing out insults. Never nothing of Substance. At Least Odin and Oscar are Fin Fans that are Critical of the Team.

U Sir, Silly little Mexican, come on every Sfla publication and Denigrate the Fins

Then U Expect people to join u in the most ignorant thing a person can do. Accentuate the Negative Over and Over again. U think anybody cares when u've repeated the same thing for the Millionth time.

How Many times today have u repeated the Same thing Over and Over again? I would have to say at least over a dozen times.

Dashi=Mando=Odin=Kris=Aloco=Odin's As shole=Darryl'sCrapFilledPants=WhiteSwallow=Againandagain etc

Dashi (I mean Odin I mean Mando),
Bukkake?
Ha Ha Ha Ha
BTW I'll turn 50 next month and my Mom is 75 so could we leave her out of this plese?
Thank you.

My Mom is up for a fight and everything but first she wants to know:
Who they are?
How do I know them?
How much money is involved?

And then:
How did I let it get this far?
Do I know what my father would say/do if he were alive?

I don't care if ur Mom was 105. We still having the Bukkake Party. I don't care if it has to be a 1 man show and it takes me all day with the old hag. It will get done

Keep Disrespecting the Dashi and the Momma Jokes will be the Nicest thing I say to U.

Point of Reference

Even Odin will admit he's not as Self-Centered/Self-Absorbed as The Dashi. Only 1 Dashi.

I'm with U in that I would like to see a real list that Exposes everyone's other Aliases. Dashi's only other Alias is "In Ur Mouth". Honest, It's "In Ur Mouth". I mean Dashi is "In Ur Mouth". Ahhh, U know what i'm trying to say. That was my Alias in the other paper that did itself in.

I said it yesterday SMF, If u want to go back and forth I'm fine with that. Just don't expect to win against the HeavyWeight Champ. Ur more than welcomed to Step Right Up, To get Smacked Down.

But if U want to keep it Civil, We can do that to.

Just don't take Dashi for a joke. I don't/didn't start it, but I will end it. (U started it SMF, comparing The Dashi)

Once U clowns realize what Dashi stands for U will realize u have a better chance of going against a God(Odin), Than the Almighty Dashi. Trust Me

Dashi=Mando=Odin=Kris=Aloco=Odin's As shole=Darryl'sCrapFilledPants=WhiteSwallow=Againandagain etc

And you tell people that I accuse others of using fake names. Pot Meet Kettle-Yet AGAIN!

PS: Thanks for the Kind Words Dashi. I AM a True Phin Fan! Of the WORST Kind!

-Odin- ;)
