Players respond to Hard Knocks embarrassments

Reshad Jones was on fire today. He had three, count them in French -- un, deux, trois -- or in Spanish -- uno, dos, tres -- interceptions during today's practice.

Very impressive. Very, very, very impressive. One of his picks came as Ryan Tannehill, who was also enjoying a good practice, was marching the first-team offense down the field in the two-minute drill. Jones stepped in front of a seam route throw from Tannehill to Anthony Fasano to end the drive at the 15 yard line.

That's the highlight of today's final training camp practice. Yes, the Dolphins are breaking camp today. Veterans get to go home to their families.

Rookies remain in the hotel for the most part. And among those is Michael Egnew, who was featured prominently on Hard Knocks Tuesday night. If you read the post about Hard Knocks you know that both Egnew and Roberto Wallace came off looking badly on TV.

Wallace was the butt of coaches' jokes as they watched tape of a practice. They called him "Ankle Weights Wallace" as they all sat around the table joking. I can tell you that Roberto Wallace put on a good face for the media today about that episode.

But he's not happy.

"At the end of the day it's a show," Wallace said. "That''s what they'll do. Obviously they pointed out all of the negatives which is part of the show. People like drama more than anything. They did it to Vontae (Davis) last week. I try to come out here and try to get better. Whatever criticism the coaches have, I can't control that. What I can control is my effort and my attitude. So I come out here with a positive attitude every day and leave it at that."

Egnew, who has been virtually invisible in practices except for his missed assignments, got ripped by Mike Sherman on Hard Knocks. I thought the kid was going to break down.

"Terrible, terrible," Sherman tells Egnew of his work in practice. "I would cut you today if I was the general manager. I would cut you."

Egnew this afternoon was asked if he got any texts from friends or family after the show last night, either offering support or perhaps some good-natured ribbing.

"I shut my phone off," he said without smiling. 

"I guarantee any player can tell you the experience. It's one of those things that happens a lot because he wants the best out of his players. It just so happens that mine made the episode and it's ok."

Wallace, Egnew and tight ends Charles Clay and Les Brown all are obviously working toward not being the goats on future Hard Knocks episodes. They put in extra work after practice (which you see below) to try to avoid the unwanted scrutiny.

That big WR looks strange indeed.

YG has never held a real, professional job that requires maximum effort. He cannot understand what AZPhins and I are saying. What the coaches did is not the way to get results from employees. Even in football.

Tim's Couch,

Now I get your screen name, "Tim's Couch" not Tim Couch. Because you lay on your fat sorry ass on your couch and eat greasy cheeseburgers, sugar and mayonaise sandwiches, while sipping 64 ounce pitchers of iced lard all day.

I'll bet you could hide John Jerry between your asss cheeks while he's holding onto a bucket of kfc and watermelon.

He might grow some more on you.....heehee(look up acromegaly).

Tim's Couch,

Couch-laying has now become a profession? LOL

Imhu be up in yo grill all year, playa! All year!!! It's on!!

Tim's Couch,

I'll bet youre so fat, that when you sweat it smells like bacon, and you take baths in muddy pig pens.

I do know that when Shula was asked about his 1st Season as HC what his greatest mistake was, he replied, "I assumed too much". Meaning that, even with veterans, you cannot assume they are professionals in their approach to their craft. Have to get after them.

Tim's Couch,

Whats the problem big piggy, farmer didnt fill your trough today?

odin, for god sakes. Do you EVEr shut up? We get it dude. You're lame. You have provided the burden of proof.

Spare us anymore paragraphs of your useless drivel.

Yes, YG/DB/et al. "Lombardi was very fair, he treated everybody the same, like dogs", Jerry Kramer.


And the URL for YG/DB/et al is.......

Tell you what, I'll make it a raffle, whoever picks the right #, I'll give you YG/DB/et al's URL.

Look it that, Jay won it.

I thought Hard Knocks did Wallace a favor; after noting his poor week, they also singled him out as having a very good game performance. Redemption. For now.

Cam Philbin???? anybody that agrees with that nickname is a douchebag. The guy is a class act that expects class and respect among the players. With this guy the players have no excuses. Why do we all keep bashing a guy thats been with our organization for less than 6 months. I dont understand you people.


You won it, man, you won it!

Mark In Toronto,

WTH is a freaking argonaut? Sounds like a group seession where a bunch of girls get together and compare the complexities of thier time of month. Is that true?

Who in the hell but a canadian would call themselves an "ARGONAUT". Everyone already knows theyve never been to the moon(astronaut).

I didnt know that "eskimos"(Edminton) lived as far south as Canada either. Where's a klondike bar when you need one, huh?

God save Nell, Dudley could do no wrong.

Ever wonder why Canadian police are called "mounties"? It got awful lonely back there in the Canadian backbrush with no female companionship around.

Mark In Toronto, are you a mounty too? LOL

I think 3 & 4 should be 1A & 1B

Sorry lord and savior, Im #1 on your mother's list too, but I continue to turn her down. With great reason, the last time she got laid, you were the result. LOL


Im seriously inclined to agree with your 3:59 post. But that only because a lot names were left out. There are many, 1c,d,e,f,g, etc..........

pouncey = no shot gun.

r tan is like 6'11".???

104" wing span.???


Why do some you you idiots here try to out mudsling me? You know its a lost cause. Just like your birth moments.

Instead of blowing thier horns, the angels all blew thier hankies at your births. LOL

Imagine how nice this blog would be without Odinstink & Craig M.

One loiters the blog with homosexual references & paragraphs of nonsense. The other w/an inferiority complex where he must be right at all costs.

We can dream can't we?


Pouncie = sawed-off shotgun

Can we give you an award for best blog mudslinger? What an accomplishment to be proud of.

Face it idiot, you're about as usueless as the sh*t aloco's iguana just took. Take a bow!

db,he'd best be workin on it. nine nine is a comin' quick.


Problem with CraigM is he's never right. He'll twist what you say and still prove himself wrong. Then swear its not him, we just dont like him.

I think he's chained in mommy's basement with an outdate windos98 operating system. Mommy's probably unaware he's tapped into her paid internet access.


Hey WOW,

I have $10 bucks that you cant spell WOW backwards, ok?


Maybe I should have given you something much easier like spelling idiot backwards(toidi). LOL

Spell LOL backwards. LOL

ayight, ya'll can fling krap at each other like the apes in trees, i'm out 4 now bytches. lol

Spiro Eggnew

This is a serious question, anyone ever bought there wife/gf some bigger tatas? How much are they? Is it worth it?


Its much cheaper to purchase a doll with bigger tatas. They arent real either. LOL

Not sure why my post was deleted but I'll ask again. Has any guy in here bought there wife/gf/mistress bigger boobs? How much are they? And is it worth it?

YG, this is a serious question, dont understand why your making fun.

Are you sure you arent the Father Luvyung O'Boys from the Louisiana Parish? I would know that writing style anywhere. See you changed your name after you got busted. Did you serve the entire sentence or got paroled?


I am being serious. Why pay for fake boobs? If you didnt like your wife/girlfriend boobs when you met. Why the hell did you continue to date or marry her?

Dying Breed, has someone falsely led you to believe you're actually funny?

Your comebacks are what I'd expect from a 6th grader.

And you don't stop. In this regard, you're as bad as odin. Over n over n over. Deal with the fact that you are repulsive to people.

Continaully using amateurish comebacks will not advance your cause.

Unless of course, your cause is to look like a f-ing moron.

Then, keep up the good work!

YG, I always thought they could be bigger but I dont want to leave her just cause her boobs are smaller, so if I can afford to pay for some I'll buy some for her

I don't really think the dolphins should have done hard knocks with the last three years being losing seasons and a new coach they should just focus on rebuilding and getting the young players to perform better for the upcoming season and i don't really think they should film players getting cut either even Chad, although Chad is a jerk they should not go down that road of calling attention to the team, much like Chad did with his various reality shows , i do wish him the best and hope he finally will grow up after this.

Drew, try to ask someone with some experience with women. The only thing Dying Breed knows about women is what he can remember about sucking his moms teet for nourishment.

Irescum got Egnew?? WHAT A F''N MORON

Drew, my wife asked me if she could get a boob job. So, I told her money was tight, do one this year and the other one next year.

Yesterday's Gone--

You are a delightful young lady. As a special treat, I am going to take you to the mall so you can pick out something pretty and then we'll go get ice cream!

egnew is def a wasted pick, ireland is plain awful

Judging from the 1st game these coaches must have been sleeping for the last 2 months.

Ahh, I was just reminded why I shouldnt read the comments in the Herald articles. I love the one bout Jesus. Turning water to wine is unimagineable but evolution of matter to a world of life, pleasures and electronic capabilities ( to list but a few) is accepted.....bawahahahaha. Oh how the wise are confounded.

MJ, your last comment was pretty hysterical
