Hard Knocks review: Episode 2

Hard Knocks just concluded. Without further delay my thoughts...

Episode 2 had heroes, goats, raised questions, caused some laughs, and tugged at some heartstrings.

The heartstrings: Coach Joe Philbin's wife, Diane, attended the funeral for Andy Reid's son Garrett, who was found dead in his dorm room at the Eagles training camp last week. Obviously the Philbins now share a sad, terrible common pain with the Reids as they also lost their son, Michael, last January.

The goats: Every tight end not named Anthony Fasano has had his moments of utter ineptitude. Les Brown still cannot block. "He's not built like a normal tight end, he's built more like a wide receiver," tight end coach Dan Campbell said. Brown is definitely a project -- at best.

Rookie draft pick Michael Egnew couldn't hear snaps counts, didn't know plays and has this perpetual deer-in-headlights look that is troubling. In a meeting, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman tells him, "I'd cut you today if I was the general manager. I would cut you. Get your head out of your (butt). You were drafted as a high pick. Get your (bleep) going. It's not good enough."

Charles Clay similarly is having trouble with the plays. "Charles, I'm telling you right now, I've got nothing to say about you at these meetings other than, he's not doing his job," Sherman tells Clay in a meeting. "You hurt us the other day."

During the same meeting, Sherman tells the tight ends, "We watch a practice like this, we're calling tight ends around the league. That's how it works. There's no full scholarship."

It should be said, Clay played well against Tampa Bay. Egnew was relevent. Brown barely played and didn't catch a pass. Roberto Wallace also played well in the preseason-opener but coaches are still wondering why he's not a star.

The man has height, weight, speed, athletic ability. Even the Dolphins aren't sure why he's not better. And then we find out during a meeting ...

Coaches joke in that meeting about how Wallace cannot separate from the defender. They start calling him, "ankle weights Wallace."

Obviously, Chad Johnson had his time on the show. He didn't know some of the plays. He makes "a rookie (bleeping) mistake" by his own admission. And of, course, he got cut. The Hard Knocks folks had the entire meeting between Johnson and Philbin in which the veteran was cut. Great work by them.

The heroes: Chris Hogan, whom I told you about two weeks ago on multiple occasions, has earned himself a nickname if not a big promotion from third and fourth-team work: "Always open." Reggie Bush calls him 7-11. "Always open."

"I can live with that nickname," said Hogan, who didn't catch a pass in the preseason-opener but was wide open for a TD. Pat Devlin didn't see him.

The offensive line got approximately two minutes on the show. It's Jake Long and Jacquies Smith getting into a little shoving match that is quickly joined by Richie Incognito, who then announces the offensive is a band of brothers and if you mess with one, you mess with all. That's cool. As long as they, you know, block.

The laughs: The Dolphins have taken to giving their rookies the worst and most embarrassing haircuts on Earth. It is rookie hazing at its height. The worst happened to Josh Samuda, who lost his eyebrows to a razor and had a mohawk shaved into his head in the shape of a penis. Funny. For a pay cable channel. "Glad we're such a first-class organization, Josh," Philbin tells the player in a meeting.

Classy.

And finally this question: Philbin has this policy he's contrived in which he refuses to even address that injuries happen. He was asked about David Garrard after last Friday's game but refused to explain why his starting quarterback didn't play, citing this policy. Great, I get it. You don't want to give opponents a heads up on injuries.

Except that on Hard Knocks, we find out Garrard suffered his left knee injury while playing with his kids in a pool -- which is a non-football injury. We learn Garrard had 100 cc of fluid drained from the knee the night before the game. We find out the Dolphins really expect him to miss 3-to-4 weeks instead of the 2-to-4 weeks Garrard's camp has been putting out there through back channels.

So much for competitive advantage. Ridiculous.

I don't know myself from a hole in the ground.

Ken, the reason CJ was cut was the incident on Saturday, and not for using the F-bomb, but where he used the F-bomb. The practice field it's ok to use the f-bomb, at a presser, a no way. There's a time and place for everything. It's maturity and common sense issue.

Mick Sherman shouldn't talk crap! He didn't make in college as a head coach, so what makes him so special in the pro's, if the guys are not learning the system maybe he ain't teaching it correctly! Maybe it doesn't make sense to the players, maybe it's from the 1980. HAHAHAHA! I don't know I hope those receivers pick it up quick But humiliated someone in front of others and on cameras doesn't boost your confidence I would think words of encouragement word of wisdom makes a player get better not embarrassment!! But what the Hell I know I just not brightest dolphin fan! Ok I know how the receivers feel. :(-

There was a lot of noise and complaint raised around the Fins deciding to work with Hard Knocks. But after 2 episodes I think it is adding real value for the franchise.

Best part is the coaching staff. New squad of coaches are shown to be funny at times, hard nosed at times and really quite competent. I am confident in this staff.

It also gives fans a first hand accounting for the firing of Chad Johnson. That is tough to watch but a real benefit of the show.

It gives great insight to players who we would know nothing about. How about 7/11! You have to pull for this kid. He really does run great routes and I didn't se him drop anything. Him and Bess would make 2 rookie FA's making our WR squad.

Finally, the show provides insight into the Garrard injury and gives us the full story.

Good stuff Hard Knocks!

Love the O-Line coach...ex Jarhead. This guys would step on his grandmothers throat if she crossed him wrong.
The coaching staff seems very disciplined and eager to teach....unlike Sparano.
Also like the new interior of the locker room...Champions learn here, or something like that with the two Lombardi trophy's on the wall.
Still think were an 8-8 team as we implement a new system with little real talent.

Mike Sherman and Jim Turner both hilarious. The editors of hard knocks shape what you see to fit a storyline. So saying Philbin is weak and another Cameron isn't fair.
Even with cutting Chad he was direct but gracious. Did you see Chad looking around the room taking in the experience? He knew he was gone.
Let the guy coach some games then see where he is.
They are rebuilding. New schemes on both sides of the ball. New coaches new players. Competing in a division with Brady Bellichick who have been together tweaking an offense for what 12 years?
Too many people on here are part time psychics and too quick to dismiss players/coaches as crap.
Manage your expectations. Or do what I do and drink heavily during games.

Thought Sherman and the O line coach came across with a lot of intensity and passion. Cant say the same for the Fins tight ends coach, Campbell. Maybe one of the reasons the tight ends arent progressing is Campbell. He may be the first coach cut from the team.

Think the team will allow Hogan to change his number to 7/11

So stupid that we did this show.

It allows every other team to see things that will help them during games.

-They will play press on Wallace.

-Hogan will now be paid more attention too IF he is even on our team, as another team may grab him from the PS.

-They will play confusing switch coverages on our stupid TEs.

-They will use double moves ALL THE TIME of Sean Smith since he couldnt cover those last night at all.

This is bad bad news for an already bad bad team.

I do feel Chad didn't realize he was cut til like 5 minutes in the interview. He was Naive enough to think it was going to be ok. Chad was actually playing good on the outside. But It's just to much off the Field, Specially at his age. The Telling Goddell he's going to get fined, The 1st Interview with the Local Media, Walking in on the coaches meeting, The 1 Easy Drop in the game, The Infamous Headbutt.

I'm not one to say he didn't headbutt her. If he did Shame on him and should be punished as Warranted. If she wants to continue with the charges. But I don't believe the Gash on her ForeHead was caused by a Headbutt. I believe she pulled a Ric Flair and went to the neighbors bathroom and put a razor to her forehead, U know shes Trifilin' like that. Allegedly she wasn't bleeding until she went to the neighbors house.

On to the Hulkster if the Patriots or the jets take him away and put him on their "53". It tells u about their lack of Depth at Wr.

One of the best lines on that show is when Ireland says, We don't have any 1,2,3's we have a bunch of 4,5,6's. It's our job to make them 1,2,3's. The Dolphins have one of the Deepest Wr groups in all the Nfl. They Just don't have a SuperStar(Proven) Wr.

The fins have a bunch of Guys that need to prove themselves. But Physically they fit the ProtoType. Most of them have the Size, Speed, and now Smart(Since Philbin Came Aboard) *Requirements to fit the mold of a Dolphin Wr. Also, Philbin wants them to be able to catch the ball.

Good morning guys,

Hard Knocks was very good last night. Both enterntaining and gives us a slight peak of what's ahead (maybe). Observations:

1. Chad Johnson getting cut was done the right way. Whoever says is hating on Philbin needs to be objective instead of a hater. He cut Johnson himself. He sat with him and told him flat out you dont mesh with what we do here. How much more can you ask from man to man. He didn't sugar coat anything he was straight up! Loved it.

2. The WR position is going to be a revolving door and in flux all season. Now I see why my guy Roberto Wallace although productive is down the depth chart. And anyway saying it was giving away any secrets is an idiot. Coaches around the league spend hours on game tape and I'm sure are quite aware of his struggles at times. His seperation is a technique problem not skills problem. Chris Hoag wow what a pleasant suprise. He is your typical small school/white Wr. He probably doesn't run an impressive 40, doesn't look impressive but gets the job done and knows how to run routes. In an uptempo offense I hope he makes the team.

3. Tannehill the more I watch the more I like him. He's going to be the real deal. I am confident and stand behind that. He needs to be the starter vs Carolina. Hw gives Miami the best chance to win preseason or regular season at this point IMO.

4. Coaches, again on Philbin he is a smart, intellectual guy. He wasn't featured as much as the other coaches but to say he's Cam Cameron is so cliche. Philbin is no non-sense and doesn't have to scream to get his point across. It's loud and clear what he wants the Dolphins to be on and off the field. Cameron wouldn't have cut a player like Johnson but Philbin wouldn't stand for it. Love Jim Turner he gives the O-line a sense of brotherhood that was talked about by Incognito. Sherman obviously doesn't mince words. He trashed the TE's.

Stimpy, I disagree. I love that we did this show. It now shows all those fantastically-optimistic fans, with no regard for reality, why the rest of us tire of their cheerleading year after year.

This is an inept team, with mediocre talent, dressed up as a professional football franchise. I'm sorry to say it. The starting QB, coming off injury, hurts himself PLAYING WITH HIS KIDS IN A POOL! REALLY? TE's who make the offensive coordinator SO DISTRAUGHT with their horrible play he has to completely embarrass them (as is his absolute right). Do these players understand this is the N.F.L? There are 31 other teams with bruisers who are tightening the screws to compete with anyone. And these guys are whining and nursing their little "tweaks" and missing plays.

This is great for the fanbase to see. Yes, the Coaches seem to get it. They seem to be in control of ONE DAY turning this around. Some of the players looks like their part of the solution (not the problem). But overall, this should show every fan WHY Miami is a mediocre franchise. WHY Miami has had 1 Playoff game in the last decade. WHY Miami is seen as a joke around the league. Winners win. Losers lose. Which do you think we are?

DC,

Guys gets spanked in meetings around the league all the time. It's part of it. Not all coaches are this way but many are. Miami has a young group that needs tough love. They don't a have single player so great that they can feel the coach is out of line. Sherman was dead on what he was saying. Egnew, Clay are 1st and 2nd year players and they need to know the truth not be coddled.

As far as saying Miami has mediocre talent we all knew this coming into camp. Who cares that the rest of the world gets to see it. They also get to see the makings of what will be an eventual very good QB in Ryan Tannehill. They get to see potentially a diamond in the rough kid out of no where Hoag, Wallace or Pruitt become a contributor in this league and on your fantasy football team some day lol.

And as far as David Garrard getting hurt with kids in the pool that is reality. Guys get hurt all the time away from the field. Look at Terrell Suggs. Last year Darren McFadden wasn't hurt on the field or practice but showed up to practice limping and missed the remainder of the year. Things happen bro.

Andy,

I agree with the spanking (was calling out the horrible play by the players not the spanking by Sherman). And I understand guys get hurt off the field. But this injury bug seems to be a recurring thing here (to the most important players at the most inopportune time). Is it bad luck? Bad conditioning? Or something having to do with the personnel?

My point is Miami can't ever seem not to stumble all over itself. Year after year after year. Different FO, different Coaches, same product on the field. It's a revolving door. ALoco actually has said it best (I know, that's almost an oxymoron). But it's true. Every year, you can pretty much count on the secondary being horrible. You can count on a FA coming in to address some hole getting hurt. You can count on "acorns" not being up to par to truly compete with other NFL teams. When does it stop?

I have faith in Philbin. I'm hoping he's a good teacher. I'm hoping his system will soon cover some of this lack of talent. I'm hoping someone, ANYONE, at some point (like a Tannehill) will overachieve and erase some of the mistakes of the personnel that struggles. I'm hoping to one day, see ONE player (like a Jake Long) who steadily rises in ability, not a zig-zag line of ups and downs, but truly becomes elite in their position. That's what it's going to take to shed this current image of the team. That's what it's going to take to become relevant again. I knew it wouldn't happen this year. I was just hoping we'd have seen more flashes rather than more of the same.

Agreed, With the TE Coach. He's the only coach that seems like one of the players. He's a little Lackadaisical, even the Wr's Coach gets at his players. U want ur coaches to give orders and command the Attention of his players. He's the only coach who looks like he doesn't like to criticize.

T-Hill's Diving. Depends I'm 50/50 on that. If it's a Crucial point in the game then Yes. U have to get that 1st down Or Cross the Goal-line in the 4th qtr of a game. Garrard was just trying to correct him. Don't Dive Head First in Practice Because U will do it during the game.

i.e. U Play how U Practice Matt Moore. No such thing as a Gamer.

Chris Hogan,

Just looked him up and maybe he isn't your typical white wr as I claimed. He ran a 4.47, benched 225 28 times and is 6'2 220. So much for that. Says he was a Lacrosse player at Penn State and played 1 year at Monmouth where he had only 12 receptions but 3 were for TDs and 3 ints playing CB as well.

Felt bad for Chad but he knew the expectations and blew it.
Very interested in Hogan. Hope he becomes the surprise possession WR.
Loved Sherman's bluntness.
Cannot believe that professional athletes don't know the playbook by now??????
Wallace's lack of success given his tools is puzzling.

I was not a fan of the decision to allow Hard Knocks in but as a fan I am really pleased.

So now we find out this kid Egnew is an egg head. Mike Sherman tells him, "I'd cut you today if I was the general manager. I would cut you. Get your head out of your (butt). You were drafted as a high pick. Get your (bleep) going. It's not good enough."
During the same meeting, Sherman tells the tight ends, "We watch a practice like this, we're calling tight ends around the league. That's how it works. There's no full scholarship."
Goo stuff from Sherman. LOL

Terrible stuff from ireland

DC,

I hear you and I understand your frustration as a fan. I was never overly optimistic about this year. I feel a 6-10 type of season is in store but unlike just about everyone I am going to be patient because Miami has a rookie QB who I think given the time and a few more weapons will be the real deal!

I know most of you are done with being patient but getting a rookie coach installing a brand new offense and defense along with your 1st round QB doesn't usually say playoffs. In Miami's case with the lack of star power and playmakers the playoffs are not most likely a possibility this year.

He apparently enjoys the heck out of patting himself on the back, regardless of however mundane or miniscule the reason(s) might be..............
-Odin- ;)

Posted by: Coalition To Get Coalition Out Of The Closet | August 15, 2012 at 01:14 AM

You just described yourself & Craig M. Continue the back patting. You two are great at it.

oavery,

Did you see my posting on Hoagan. He's not really just a possession guy and he's big too. 6'2 220 and ran a 4.47. Says he had D-I scholarships to a handful of MAAC schools to play football(Akron, Temple etc). He decided to play Lacrosse. He was a 2 sport star.

I really hope he makes the team. Guys calling you 7/11 and saying you drop nothing is about as high a compliment as you can get. He was undrafted so his reps are way down but now with Chad Johnson gone everyone's reps go up. Maybe his does too. I would hate to see him land somewhere else and be productive even if its mininmal. Miami has such a lack of talent at WR why not put him on the 53 man roster and allow him to hone his skills if he keeps destroying guys in practice. It's not like putting a guy like Naanee is going to make Miami any better at the position anyway.

Andy, it's frustration, but it's not loss of hope. Like you said, the Tannehills, Hogans, Davone Bess', Jake Long and Mike Pouncey and Jonathan Martin's all give me hope for the future. Philbin and his staff give me hope. For me, this is the reason I have no time for a Chad Johnson on this team. I have no time for people who have too much going on outside of turning this organization around. I have no time for anyone that doesn't learn the playbook. Michael Egnew? Completely irrelevant. I have no time for players who don't give it their all, ALL THE TIME!

can odin(coalition to get coalition) be any more pathetic? If there is a more obnoxious poster on this blog, please identify him.

Do you guys think a playbook is easy and the same to other playbooks? I learned three playbooks in my life2 in high school and one in college (can't imagine the NFL) it's not easy and it take about 2 months to "know" the playbook and about 4 to be able to feel it. You have to feel the play book to play the game at a high level. Coaches are going to get upset if you don't know it in a week cause that's their job to push you pass your limits.

sta.rt

Been out of town for a few days getting some R and R but caught the Chad Johnson news before I left. I'm amazed that there's been so much debate and discussion about this guy. You do realize this isn't the Chad Johnson from ten years ago, right? This is the guy that had 15 catches last year, right? So even the MOST optimistic fan would expect what this year? 50 catches, 3-4 TDs. I think that's the high-end.

What was clear from lat night's epsisode was it wasn't just the weekend episode that got Chad cut, it was a number of things. I was looking forward to seeing what Chad could do in this offence but it's clear he either just doesn't have it any more or just isn't commited enough any more. Regardless, I trust Philbin has made the right decision. Looks like it's going to be a no nonsense team, as both Marshall and Johnson have now been jettisoned. And I say BRAVO! This is Philbin's team. Let him make the decisions that he thinks will give the team the best chance for success. Do they go with the guys they have now or pick up a guy like Burress or somebody else that comes avaialble? Don't know but I'd LOVE to see a guy like Wallace step up. He's got all the tools necessary to have success (unless of course the coaches are right about him not being able to separate. I really don't see Johnson as being a big loss. This looks like two offences in a row he's been unable to pickup.

The Censor man was realy mad early this AM. I wonder why. He even snipped a great little story of my own.

Chad Johnson,

The craziest part of Hard Knocks was episode 1 made him look like a former star who maybe still had something left in the tank. And granted I know for competitive purposes that's what is going to be done. On episode 2 he was the clueless, can't run a route, learn a playbook or catch a pass most likely washed up has been. Funny how that works.

ireland has had his best draft and gathering of rookie FA this team has seen in over a decade. this draft was going to be judged, fairly or not, on tannehill. heck guys on this blog, we know the names, were trashing the pick for months. most still have the nerve to show their faces!! well not faces, just ridiculous screen names (odin)

1st round. tannehill. looking like the game 1 starter.
2nd round. martin. the game 1 starter.
3rd round. egnew. dressed down in practice but got open in the game.
3rd round. vernon. pass rushing specialist who'l see plenty of PT
4th round. miller. not doing much in camp. hopefully he starts doing more. speed.
5th round. kaddu. has shown some ability. adds depth to a suspect LB core.
6th round. cunningham. been pretty invisible.
7th round. randall. has been a nice surprise. already a part of the DL rotation.
7th round. mathews. could be the answer in the return game.

RFA samuda. already the #2 center. plays with intensity. could be a future starter.
RFA mcdonald, back-up tackle.
RFA shelby. back-up DE. looked really good in the preseason game.

lot's of good stuff!!!

SOD,

How do you figure Johnson's had one week to learn a playbook? You do realize he's had much more than a week with the team, right? What about the rest of the offseason. I follow this guy on Twitter and trust me his focus for football just isn't there. Maybe he could get by with natural ability when he was younger but he's not that guy any more. When does it become Chad's fault, rather than blaming everyone else?

Lots of good stuff? LMAO From a bunch of rookies who have done NOTHING but, get this, PRACTICE.

This is why this fan base is riducled. I do agree with you on 1 point however, Odin is RIDICULOUS.

I heard the referees lockout won't be fixed before the Season opener. So that's bad news for EVERY team in the NFL. The replacement refs are a joke. Let's hope they get their act together quickly, or else it will be a circus in September.

BPA...

I'm not gonna defend Chad if he is guility...

But I just thought you shoud know...that during one of MANY Evelyn classic crazy blow-outs in which she is in a physical ateercation with another female...and clearly is the aggressor...she tells a poor woman she is bullying..."if hou do that sh@t again...i will head butt you"....

So some women may head butt....

Don't know but I'd LOVE to see a guy like Wallace step up. He's got all the tools necessary to have success (unless of course the coaches are right about him not being able to separate.

Posted by: Craig M | August 15, 2012 at 09:36 AM

How do you know he has all the tools necessary? Do you KNOW or are you just living off what you read on blogs?

Fact is you, nor anyone here, knows a darn thing. Stop pretending as if you do!

He's been a PS player for a REASON. He obviously DOESN'T have all the tools. You ladies REALLY need to stick to posting about what you know. Which in regards to players or football, wouldn't be a lot.

DC,
I agree with you on the replacement refs....AWFUL so far!

jaison, you might want to hold your praise for Tannehill and the rookies a bit for now. I'm a Tannehill fan and this is who I wanted the team to draft but he's done nothing yet. Yes, he looks promising but there's a HUGE jump between what he's done and a guy who could potentially lead this guy to championships. I think so many people are getting ahead of themselves with this kid (including Bob Griese) and the time will come when this kid will struggle. It's how he adapts to that which will determine if he's going to be any good or not. I'm hopeful but that's it at this point.

Truth of the matter....

Looks like you're in one of your little argumentative moods this morning. I'll address your comments and then let you get ready to go and play for recess....

It's been common belief that Wallace has the size and strength to be a good receiver in this league. Just because Sparano and company never gave this guy a chance, doesn't mean he's deemed to forever be a PS player. If you read my comments you would see that I'm HOPEFUL that this guy has what it takes. In order to be that he needs a chance to play. I'm hoping this is his chance.

Yeah, sure. And why was Chris Hogan cut from 2 Teams before landing here?

Kris, that Evelyn sounds like a real douche. I would've head butted her to mars by now. I think Chad should be congratulated for showing enough restrain to keeping her to one head butt.

She is a bully. She's always the aggressor until she goes too far and oversteps her bounds and gets blown up. then the first thing she does is run to the cops. Typical bully.

Comments from Anmdrew Luck on the weekend. This is where we should be with Tannehill right now too and hopefully this is how the kid feels. Good start but LONG way to go.....


"Let's not get too excited about anything,'' Luck said afterward, "because nobody goes back and looks at the preseason record for anything."

The refs thing does SUCK! Because it seems we are realy on the good side of a bad call. :)

So, Loved Hard Knocks last night, Loved Shermans wake up call to the TE's

Loved the O-line coordinator. He is a riot, and seems to have that team functioning very well.

Matt Moore looks bad to me, not confident at all, Tanny looks real strong. I know they are just clips. But he is looking better than RG III at this point, DC might be able to comment more on that.

I like Philbin a lot, this crap of Philbin=Cameron??? Stupidest comparison ever.

Like this Hogan kid, but he seems to be playing against back ups, not the starters so I am cautious.

Finally Chad Johnson, although I am in full support of what Philbin did. I like the way Philbin spoke to him face to face. I will give Chad credit, he handled it like a professional which I did not expect. Now that I said that I am sure he will tweet something completly stupid or negative. It did make me wonder if we made the "right" move. But I agree with it.

I love hard knocks, I hate having to wait a week for the next one! :)

meant to say RARLY on the good side of bad calls.

Most of you People are deluding yourselves again. No more for me. This Team MIGHT be better than last year's one, but is far from a complete Team personnel wise. No miracles are to be expected.

It's been common belief that Wallace has the size and strength to be a good receiver in this league.

So on top of not knowing anything, we can add liar to your resume.

No, you didn't say you were hopeful. You said:

"He's got all the tools necessary to have success"

Where exactly did you say anything about being hopeful? Oh yea, YOU DIDN'T. You just blindly proclaimed something that you have NO clue about & cannot prove.

Just more of you flapping your gums with nothing to back yourself up except yourself. THis is why you are a joke on this blog.

Like I said, stick to what you KNOW. In terms of football, this should render you pretty mute.

Seriously Armando, your beef is that the Gerrard camp is saying 2-4 weeks when in the meetings we learn it's actually 3-4 weeks???
Isn't this virtually the same? Just go with 4 weeks and be done with it.

The WR's are the worst in the NFL. I feel sorry for whoever QB's this mess.

Looks like they game-planned for Friday's game. If they did, I'm sure they told Carolina about it and they will do the same. Start Moore.

Reccess time, truth. Go play!

Mark, are you able to catch these episodes on Torrent? When's the next game guys and will it be on regular TV?

Hey Egnew..If you cant remember every play. Get a play list on your belt or wirst. Hell even Tom Brady has a play list on his wrist. Same for all the other guys.

Reccess time, truth. Go play!

Typically, when you are exposed once again, as a big mouthed, know nothing, fraud, you shut your trap & run for cover in another convo. LMAO

Go eat your crow bud, I'll bring ya the hot sauce!

Craig M suffers from foot in mouth disease. He just ran out of feet.

So funny how Armando acts like a little girl about how Hard Knocks gets more injury info than he does...haaa

truth,

Keep going....I'm finding it amusing.

ya'll gotta give j phil 3 seasons to clean up that big pile of steaming bum chiz that duh w ,saban ,cam ,fatcells and spazano had left all over the joe + camp davie turfs.

truth,

Too bad you're not an enough to put your actual name on your posts. I think that speaks volumes about who you are. People in glass houses...

man

The same way you let Hard Knocks enter youe House, the same way you can lead them astray in There.

"Except that on Hard Knocks, we find out Garrard suffered his left knee injury while playing with his kids in a pool -- which is a non-football injury. We learn Garrard had 100 cc of fluid drained from the knee the night before the game. We find out the Dolphins really expect him to miss 3-to-4 weeks instead of the 2-to-4 weeks Garrard's camp has been putting out there through back channels.

So much for competitive advantage. Ridiculous."


Except that HK won't be there during the season. I doubt coach is looking for competitive advantage during the preseason. Doh!!

Why on Earth would we agree to go on this show and humiliate ourselves even more all while giving away certain secrets? Un freakin believable. I can't understand it.
