Post-mortem after 2nd loss in 2nd preseason game

Worried about the Dolphins?

Well, it is not exactly time to push panic buttons. But it is time to identify where such buttons are located because another month of this stuff is going to be bad.

"We know we're better than what we've showed," Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore said after last night's 23-17 loss to Carolina, a game which wasn't as close as the score because the Panthers totally outplayed the Dolphins early when the starters were in the game.

"Yeah, we should be a little concerned."

This was a game that was supposed to give clarity to the Dolphins quarterback competition. It didn't. Coach Joe Philbin was asked if he'll be able to go through with his plan of naming a starter for next week and he seemed at a loss for an answer.

"I don't know that to be honest with you," he said. "I really don't."

Nobody was happy with their work. Ryan Tannehill wasn't.

"Obviously, it didn't go the way I wanted it to go but I was excited to ge out there, compete with the guys and I think it's a starting point," he said.

True.

This also is true: As I wrote in my column Tannehill didn't get much help from anyone. Moore, meanwhile, failed to step up when he had the chance.

"We got a lot of work to do," Moore said. "You have to credit Carolina, they came out and played well. But we have a lot of stuff to work on."

The Dolphins ran the ball 12 times for 37 yards Friday night. Yet Philbin wasn't all that concerned about it. He said it has not been a point of emphasis. That's good. But maybe the Dolphins should start emphasizing it a bit.

Because the regular season is coming.

Check out Tannehill below in part of his post-game talk:

Been living with my gal 3 months. It's kinda serious. I'm close to popping the question. Just needed to know her better. Strange as it may seem, she was in the bathroom this afternoon with the door open and I walked in. She was taking a mean, sloppy crap. Somehow, it turned me on. It was ok. I think she's a keeper.

Looks like the same old Miami Dolphins we've come to know over the past decade. Time to start looking towards next season. Yeehaw! The worst thing is that Tannehill looks promising, but the rest of the team is going to get him killed!

Monkey Boy, C'mon Man? Why are you impostoring?

Nobody wanted to work with Ireland. Cant blame them.

Why not post these under your real name? It's not like we can check your sign in name against the Sex Offenders Registry, C'Mon.

If this is how **YOU** really feel, be Proud of your Opinion and Own It ;)

It's all Good.

(The impostoring......not so much....)

-Odin- ;)

odinseye you have the most tired rant going. you are a barrel of total nonsense its beyond me how any of your three friends (phins, fin4, kris) even respond to you. I guess they are losers too.

Losing Nolan and Marshall off a 6-10 team is suicide.

Nore impostoring, GREAT - Duh.

And just when I was going to shut up about what a Sodomizing Butt Munch you are.

PS: I'll be posting my "Mind Bogglin" revelations and Two Game Team analysis at: Dolphintalk.wordpress.com.

Thank God for Ohio and the site he put together. It reminds me of the old days when we would visit Grandma's. All the Kiddie Kats(Mando's Trained Monkey Boy)had to stay in the Kiddie Kat Room(Dolphin In Depth), While the Grown Folks hung out and Talked in the Dining Room(Dolphintalk.wordpress.com).

(Now, I guess I'll keep trying to get Monkey Boy out the Closet....sigh....).

Buh - Bye ;)

The "down south" comment is in itself typical of those above the Mason-Dixon line (maybe Chicago?) who look upon Southerners with contempt.
I could reply that there has not been an honest politician from Illinois since Abe Lincoln. So I will.
My friend, I can assure you stupidity knows no boundaries. Nor does intelligent discourse.

OK.
For grins, everyone take a step back and look at the teams featured on"Hard Knocks.
I might be wrong here, but in more than one occasional those teams suffered more losses than the previous year.
Ross is guilty of his usual ego star trip, all to the detriment of our team. Why do this to a first time HC, new QB?
WHY.
We all know the answer to that one.

98.7%

That is the percentage of posts by odinfool have gay references...including one of his many names here about getting someone out of the closet.

Have ya ever seen someone so obsessed with the gay theme and what does that tell ya?

Clemson,

Forget Kris, Fin4 and all of them.

Lets talk football! You and me, toe to toe. Man To Man!

What? You can't?

Let me guess, all you know about Football is how tight which player wears his pants?

OIC! Now I understand!

Oh well, Viva La-Rainbow Room Eh?

Fvcking Retarded FeeAaaaag!

My favorite song is from The Wizard of Oz. "If I Only Had A Brain"

I have NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER with Gay People. To each their owm, Live and let Live!

I do have a Problem with Mando's retarded Gay Monkey Boy-Friend ruining this blog day in and day out.

Dude, just put Mando back your Mouth and QUIT TYPING!

Get Dat Meth Money Queenie!

Whoop - WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP!!!!

-Odin- ;)

We love odin and his mindless drivel so much. He is our savior because we can't talk football with our wives or mongoloid neighbors.

Where is my last post?

I dedicated an entire post to Odin.
I offered Odin the 'Pacifier of Peace'.

This defense needs a total rebuild. Only starter worth keeping is Cam Wake. Dansby is an overpaid low impact calibre starter and the other 9 players on our starting defensive unit are 3rd team backups with a really good team.

The reason it looks like we're having competition in camp to the coaches is because virtually everybody sucks.

Ireland's done such a great job of building an average at best roster. Its difficult to get the needed draft position to bring in great picks. Even if we had a top 3 draft pick, Ireland would probably trade down just to draft 2 average calibre players.

Odin please:
Sit down
relax, there is no rush, we have hours and hours,

Now reach out and gently take hold of the pole of self-rightousness(PSR).
Lean back, accept your fate, accept your place in the world, open your mouth and accept the Pole of Self-Rightousness (PSR).

Ireland thinks going thru 50 acorns to find one Cam Wake is the way to find talent. Geesh, Wake's the only player on the entire defensive roster that can be classified as an impact player. Now do you guys see why the defense is so terrible?

The trade down to take Odrick instead of Dez FkUp looks better every day.

Odin,
Please accept the Pole of Self-Rightousness (PSR) into your mouth so that we may move on from this place.

Don't make me turn you over!

YG TELL US HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ODIN.

Odrick didnt even make 3rd team ALL American his senior season at Penn St. He did make 1st team All Big 10, but you dont waste 1st rd picks on guys like that.

Odrick seems like the kind of player that gives you 3-4 good games a year. The other 13-14 games he's in witness protection on the playing field.

Passing on Dez looks good right now, but taking Odrick's looking average to mediocre at best. There were better options available.

ALoco,

I like Odin very well. Just seems Odin loves feeding the trolls here even more.

I know it may sound crazy but maybe the team should try sliding Jonathan Martin back into his natural playing spot(LT). Then slide Jake Long to RT. Long's a seasoned vet and may adapt to the change more quickly and effectively.

Odin,
Put the aliases on hold for a few minutes.
Accept the Pole of Self-Rightousness (PSR) into your mouth and into your life.
Please.
If I have to turn you over there will be much squealing and crying.

People people settle down.All will be well. This team is struggling. Yes its true. But think about it. This the first time in 4 years this offense has seen an attacking offensive playbook. Sparano and co. ran a slow , power run based offense based on outdated principles.And the players were babied. Now its a fast paced up tempo sling it offense and these guys are being yelled at and criticized and they dont know what to do.miami isnt running the ball because our coaches know we can run the ball effectivly and they are trying to get tannehill ,matt moore, and the rest of the offense as many live action passing snaps as possible to speed up the progress of learning the pass heavy playbook.

Curt Cousins the guy I said we should have taken throw 3tds for 226yds tonite for the Redskins. Rotflmao!!!!!!!!

All of that is ancient history.
Current history is founded in the Pole of Self-Righteousness (PSR).

All of the new talent that comes into the league each year. Still, seems we get next to none of it or none of it all. Irelands to concerned with finding acorns.

Lean back, accept your fate, accept your place in the world, open your mouth and accept the Pole of Self-Rightousness (PSR).

When you put your head on the pillow at night(or in you case your rolled up Hoodie with the Meth Pipe burns in it), you dream of me......Don't Cha?

Yeah, you'd just LOVE a big ole Mouthful of Odin tonight wouldn't Cha?

Keep Dreaming Sweet Cheeks.

From this day Forward, I Pronounce you El Presidente of the "Odins Wong" Fan Club!

-Odin- ;)

5yrs in with the Parcellians and this defense is now worse than it was in 2007(1-15). That's totally unacceptable.

Passing on Dez looks good right now, but taking Odrick's looking average to mediocre at best. There were better options available.

Posted by: Yesterday's Gone | August 19, 2012 at 01:01 AM

Well said YG, right on the money. Better options available. In Odrick's case AND Misi's!

Im not going to blame Philbin for this crap. He took over with horrible players Ireland/Parcells brought in. And it seems Ireland has brought in another fresh new crop of terrible players outside of Tannehill.

Odin,
When the 'Pole of Self-Righteousness' is pointing at you the head will be swollen and there will be a solidness that starts at the prostate and moves forward.
In other words it will be hard like a mofo!

I know it may sound crazy but maybe the team should try sliding Jonathan Martin back into his natural playing spot(LT). Then slide Jake Long to RT. Long's a seasoned vet and may adapt to the change more quickly and effectively.

Posted by: Yesterday's Gone | August 19, 2012 at 01:06 AM

I know why you would be thinking along those lines. Martin was HORRIBLE Friday!

I was even wondering if we could slide Hicks out to right Tackle and get Steinbach in at Guard?

(I hope Martin at least learned SOMETHING Friday Night....)

Ireland passing on obvious talent to get to a mediocre acorn, is like running through a room full of naked super models to get to Rue Paul. Geesh!

We just dont have enough real talent on this team for Ireland to keep bringing in acorns. Ireland keeps this up and I swear he'll begin to grow a long bushy tail out of his squirrely asss!

On most teams the best player starts. In Miami the least worst guy starts.

First of all we all need to agree on one thing before we can agree on a future thing.
I offer the Pole of Self-Righteousness (PSR) as the one thing we can all agree on.

In other words it will be hard like a mofo!

Trained Monkey Boy.........can you take the dik outcha mouf long enough to listen up?

Weren't you complaining about people posting gay stuff awhile back?

Seriously! Dude, you've been talking about Dik for over an hour now.

Go down to the Rainbow Room and suck one of your boys off for some cash. Then get you a BIG BLAST of METH and RELAX for God's Sake!

Seriously man, give the "Blow Job Talk" a rest already(your "TRUE COLORS" are REALLY showing)

YG,

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh................don't give Monkey Boy any ideas. OMG! He would go ON and ON about it FOREVER.

You know, like he does about Corks-lol!

(What Choo think Monkey Boy? Was THAT worthy of an LOL?)

PS: LOL!

-Odin- ;)

Looks like my doomsday predictions about this blog were wrong. I know I said I would leave earlier in the year but hey Im addicted. Much like my addiction to the man bone. MMMMM mmmmm mmmmm love me some man wang. Bwaaa hahahahahaha jokes on you losers I've liked the skin flute all along!

ODRICK BLOWS

WE AINT GOT A wr CORPS WORTHY OF DISCUSSION

JOKE FRANCHISE
CAM CAMERON REDUX
THANKS TUNA!

Odin,
Thank you for replying to me.
I offer the Pole of Self-Righteousness (PSR) for others to suck and experience warm-familiness.
I will discuss my own experience with you in person.
Those that I turn over will feel turned-over!
Word is bond!

Jets trying to do thier best to make sure we dont finish in the afc cellar this year. Mark Sanchez threw a 77yd pick 6, and the jets have yet to score an offensive td the entire preseason so far.

Also, with oline guru Tony Sparano, Sanchez has been sacked 5 times and Tebow has been sacked 3 times this preseason. But hey, the Jets did get a fistpump last night(3pts). LOL

Looks like our two games against the Jets this year will be critical in deciding who finishes in the afc east cellar in 2012.

Speaking of fist pumps anyone up for helping a brother out with an elbow deep fisting? I need something up there now.

Odin,
Thank you for admitting your gayness!
If you are not too disgusting I will offer you a chance to suck the Pole of Self-Righteousness (PSR).
If I turn you over you will feel turned over.
My word is my bond!

I predict there will be a coin toss to decide which team gets 1st overall 2013 draft pick and which team gets 2nd overall 2013 draft pick, between the Jets and Dolphins.

I predict we will win the coin flip and Ireland trades down so he can draft 3 acorns instead. Ireland will turn our 2013 1st overall draft pick into 3 acorns.

Thank God for Pat Riley!

The Miami Heat have won 2 nba championships in a short span of where the Dolphins havent even managed to win 1 playoff game.

Also have played in 3 nba championships.

YG,
By definition 'acorns' are free agents that have been released by other teams.
Acorns are UNEMPLOYED.
Acorns are out of football: (NoodleARM, Fasano, Incogs,
Matt Moore, David Garrard, Columbus, Olshansky, Taylor etc.)

In our last playoff game NoodleArm Penningtom threw 4 intercetions.
Was that a record or did Marino throw more than that in a playoff game?

odin,

I enjoyed your earlier posts about the rebuilding situation being just that with Ross and Co turning the mere mention into blasphemy. I was posting about it earlier and went a few rounds with the resident monkey boy who insists that Ireland was hired by Jerry Jones and Ross to G.M. their respective clubs so what the hell did I know, HUHH???

This blog's sorry excuse for a primate doesn't even know how Ireland came to be the chief of our F.O. PLUCKED FROM HIS DAYS as apprentice scout from Herm Edwards in K.C. by Parcells and fast tracked all the way by his Jedi Master being taught and made strong in the ways of the dogmatic cloud of dust phylosophy all the way to Evil Sith Lord of Football Ops in Miami.

The argument became racial on his behalf after he had no other recourse and for it I apologize if I offended anyone but your arguing as you said with the kids corner at the family Christmas party. It gets worse if you take him at his reading comprehension skills given he's the kid everybody at the party is secretly discussing having tested to gauge whether the I.Q. hits 70 seriously!!

Acorns are draft picks too. These are the guys no other gm in football see much talent in except for Jeff Ireland. He thinks they can mold these kind of players into future stars.

It never happens, instead of stars, theyre like small pieces of meteorites that fall harmlessly and unnoticilibly to the earth. Never to be seen nor heard from again.

YG,

Miss the days we use to have some serious Football rap sessions on here late night with Rob, Darryl, Derek4, odin and 0x80

It is pure and simple. THIS TEAM SUCKS!!!
