Salguero's Sunday pick is ... Dolphins

I think you know by now I am not a homer. I call it as I see it, sometimes good, often times lately very bad. Well, I just sent in to The Herald my pick for Sunday.

I'm picking the Dolphins to win.

If my prediction comes true the Dolphins would reach .500 for the first time since Oct. 2010.

Why do I think the Dolphins will beat the Raiders?

I see potential in this defense to do good things. They need to tighten up the secondary. They need to turn the pass-rush up a notch. But I think that can happen, at least to a small degree, with the personnel currently on the team.

So I don't see Carson Palmer and his inconsistent receivers carving up the Miami defense. Darrius Heyward-Bey is a nice player but I don't see Andre Johnson on the Raiders.

The Raiders' best player is Darren McFadden. But he's running behind an inconsistent offensive line and I like Miami's chances of slowing the Oakland charge. Plus the Raiders don't have a better-than-average tight end so the thing that always bites this defense probably won't this week.

Don't get me wrong. I see a low-scoring, tight, tense game.

I don't see the Dolphins offense moving the football up and down the field on the Oakland defense. But that defense is just undisciplined enough as to do some damage to itself and open the door for rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill and company.

Remember, Sunday won't offer just a homefield advantage for the Dolphins, it offers a major time advantage and schedule advantage for Miami.

The Raiders, who will travel 28,692 air miles this season, more than any team, will be getting on a plane and traveling five hours, losing three hours and settling in unfamiliar surroundings the day before the game.

On game day, the Raiders will be kicking off at what their body clock tells them is 10 a.m.

And then there is the weather advantage the Dolphins should enjoy, in that it is very humid in South Florida while Oakland is not nearly as taxing on a body.

For all these reasons I'm picking the Dolphins.

DC, Trust ME U Can't Even Hold My Jock. Dashi is 100% Sure OF that. (Dashi never has to Stoop to Belittling a Persons opinion to Prove U WRONG.)

What Has Dashi said OVer and Over. Again


Don't know what U get out of that. That's not my Problem.

Dashi's Problem is Matt Ryan IS NOT A FRANCHISE QB.


So JT never finished a Game with a Sack on the QB? Kirs are u Sure ur a Fins Fan? JT had a JJ Watt game on the Regular.

Member. Sack, Fumble, TD. Or Deflection, INT, and TD.

OR how about when Zack will get 20+ Tackles in a Game. That's not a Impact?

Now did We have a Qb that can Lead a Comeback? No.

Coalition, I was wondering if I could ask you for a favor.

Could you make your posts longer, more nauseating, more long winded & more obnoxious than the one you recently posted? it might be asking alot but, try!

LMAO What kind of doofus puts that much time n energy into a sports blog for 1 of the worst teams in Professional Sports?

You are a tragedy. DO you stay up at night thinking of this junk? Get a life dipshyt.

Should that Qb have Been Matt Ryan? Hell NO.

My biggest concern is. RS. Of the OL and Tannehill tip passes at the line, the raiders are going to do the same thing that Texan did, it's a copy cat league. But I have the PHINS hopefully wining 17-14

Jake Long will demand a king's ransom just so the dolphins cant resign him. Then he will sign with a winner for $100 million dollars less in free agency.

Making all of you who say Long was the better pick, go and call your grandmothers. LOL

I think it's time to move forward from this Ryan v Long conversation. This could go on forever and everyone is going to be at a standstill. Onto a new topic....

Do we need Bush at season's end? If not should we continue unloading to get more picks with the Vets we won't keep next season

Long may even return to his home state of Ohio signing with the Bengals. Protecting Andy Dalton's blind side.

Hey, Loser!

We wouldn't have to make our Post Longer IF U READ FASTER!! (Not Just Odin, Dashi and the Other Top 5 Most Hated Drop Beautiful Soliloquies ALL THE TIME.)

Let me guess no BIG WORDS Either. And Dashi isn't just talking about capitalizing. CLOWN

Dashi Guesses LOSER Spent 30 Minutes typing his Post and 1-Hour Re-Reading it.

Hey CLOWN!!! YEah U BOY!!!

U think Just Maybe Odin has had it with U and Is Sticking to just Dropping Wisdom once or Twice a Day. Instead of Conversing With Low-lives like U.

We all Know Ur that "SOMEONE" Odin was talking About.

Or to Dashi "Adam Beasley". The Other Guy, The Clown who love's to Troll Dolphin Blog's.

Who Else other than Mando has Power to Delete Post? ADAM BEASLEY!!

Cause Dashi Remembers This OFFSEASON, when my Boy Mr. B.Jackson will post for mando and he would say he can't get in to type the Post.

Yet, MonkeyBoy can Delete Post?

Hypothetical Situation



Why would anyone trade for Reggie Bush when he's a fa at year's end anyway? He only signed a 2yr contract with us and this is year 2. Can you count dumb-dumb? LOL

Reggie Bush aint resigning with this garbage franchise, especially if Ireland's still gm at seasons end.

Reggie Bush most likely signs with a legit contender during the new fa period. He's our untradeble 1yr rental for this year.

Dumass Ireland thought he was drafting Bush's replacement with Lamarr Miller. Im telling you guys right now, Miller's garbage.

If JI still here next year. He will trade long acorns. And Bush rocks!!! Hahahahaha!



On the Bush Thing.

Dashi believes the fins won't resign him, Unless it's for a 2-Yr Contract.

Reason Being Bush will turn 30 next Year. And We Know what that Means for a RB in the NFL. Reason MJD WANTS TO RENEGOTIATE NOW. Time is Ticking

Dashi would love to see Bush end his Career in Miami. But Nobody is really going to give a 4-yr Deal to a 30 yr old RB.

Now here comes where Dashi is Split on Ireland. He has set us up at RB pretty Well for the Future. Yes, Thomas is a Bust and L.Miller Sucks.

But losing Bush will hurt Less than Losing Long in the LONG run.

Miller has no power, very little elusiveness, and average best burst to the line of scrimmage. In the nfl this equals dud at rb or 3rd down pass catching rb at most.


Youre right, my bad. He'll sign with the Lions next year. LOL

As long as Ireland's still gm, Miami wont be a desirable place for our best players to resign or fa to come in.

Maybe losing Long and Bush to fa at the end of the year will convince Ross Ireland has to go. If not, even the good players we have will exost as soon as thier contracts expires. Believe that.


Question L.Miller is a 4th rd pick Bust Right?

Thats Better Than John Avery in the 1st and Travis Minor in the 3rd. All 3 Similar Players.

From the looks of it Ireland is Doing Way better than the Other GM's we've had in the last 20 yrs.

Also before U compare D. Thomas. Member JJ Johnson? That was a 2nd rd Pick.

Long returns to Michigan next year by signing fa deal with the Detroit Lions. Mark it on your calenders.


D Thomas does seem somilar to JJ Johnson. Hmm... Ireland draft slightly better busts than previous gm's.

And I always thought a bust was a bust was a bust. Learn sonmething new everyday. LOL

Someone who needs an RB for a playoff push would trade a 5th, 6th. Why did we trade a 7th and Amaya for Bush when he was going to get cut a day later? Please don't dumb me down with your "intelligence". Your arguments are just a waste of time you know nothing about life and football.

Whom were the two players Miami signed today Mando?

Problem with Ireland:

He's a freaking anommolly. Its extremely rare that a gm makes his job harder and harder with each coming year. He keeps replacing the players he's replacing.

Have you guys noticed this the past 5yrs? You gotta be immovable homers if you havent. We'll probably be replacing Jake Long and Reggie Bush next year, amongst other positions.

Its hard to address something new because we're steadily re-addressing something old. Something "we thought" had already been addressed.


For the LAST f*ckin' time, I haven't now nor have I ever posted under another name. Don't believe me, check with Armando. Until you have proof why don't you shut the f*ck up with your stupid accusations. You always bring a knife to a gun fight, son. You can't converse and debate about football so you resort to name calling and making up accusations. Stick to the topic at hand. Matt Ryan's offence scored TWO points against the Giants last year in a playoff game they should have won. Inexcusable! Until he wins a playoff game there will be doubts about him.

Mark in Toronto, I'm not arguing Ryan over Long. Yes, we'd be further ahead. It's ancient history. We can't change it. What I have a problem with is this other moron who claims picking Long was a disaster. Methinks the boy has a case of the melo-dramatics.

DumbD20 @7:12 PM,

You should ask your dumb gm Ireland that question. Doesnt dumb unsterstand dumb anymore. Have you dummies broken allegiance with eachother?

Geeze, what's this world coming to when even stupid people no longer understand other stupid people. LOL

Hi! I'm Yesterday'sGone nd i know that 2+2=4 so i know everything about everything. Test me!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cause then i can prov you rong! I am trolltard1000 nd i know everything LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!! Get outta here YG you pollute the place


If you and DumbD20 arent the same people, then it proof your father was screwing around on your mother and you have a illegitimate brother(MiamiD20). Just sayin'. LOL

D. Thomas is Identical to R. Brown and we Drafted him 2nd Overall. Over Aaron Rodgers. Again Ireland Drafted D.Thomas at the Bottom of the 2nd, Not the Top of the 1st.

Now U guys want to Talk About BLOWING IT. Screw the Long/ Ryan Debate (Which is Actually a Debate, Meaning Ryan Sucks. No O-Line Should be in the Conversation with a QB or RB.) Long is even Better than Brown, And SABAN BLEW IT BIG TIME. Passed on Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers in the Same League Year.

No Debate Aaron Rodgers over Ronnie.

Definitely No Debate Rodgers over Long.

Debatable Ryan Over Ronnie or Long.

And Again IF U can Debate whether To Get a QB or A Linemen. There is No Debate. NO LINEMEN STACKS UP TO AN ELITE QB.

Is it a Debate? No, If it is That QB is NOT THAT GOOD. No Matter how Good that LT can BE. EVEN JAKE LONG.

we suck

Craig don't worry what YG says he doesn't have an intelligent thought. He just assumes because we have a similar opinion that we must he the same person. You have to ignore trolls around here if you wish to have a conversation. Does YG really upset you, keep you awake at night or even make you miss a beat during the day? We are all he thinks about, it's sad for him really. Don't let it bother ya

If you ever wondered about YG/DB being another alias of the blog troll, here is the proof. Check out this exchange and you be the judge. He's also the Blind Homer impostor at 2:16.

I always wondered about YG/DB myself. The evidence is overwhelming. He is obviously Clue and we all know Clue is one and the same. The resident blog troll. From this day forward YG/DB is too be ignored just like he is at all the other blogs where he's been busted and banned. Rumor has it he was the old NJ Plumber alias too.

Sad sad situation.

Ah YG, so you're the LOL reality check dirtbag. You know, everyone here hates you and I always gave you the benefit of the doubt but now I see why everyone hates you. Lost a lot of respect or you bud. I'll have a conversation with you again once you grow a pair, until then *suck it*

Posted by: MiamiD20 | September 14, 2012 at 02:14 PM

Everyone thats not on the Dolphins stinks! Get it?

Posted by: Blind Homer MiamiD20 | September 14, 2012 at 02:16 PM

I already feel so lost in the world without you idiot. LOL
Did you get the memo that this is the internet and it means absolutely whether youre loved or hated? While youre still figuring how to grow a pair, hope you figure how to grow a brain too. LOL

Posted by: Yesterday'sGone | September 14, 2012 at 02:19 PM

MiamiD20, I think its safe to say you are a lot more hated on here then YG is. Get a clue, son.

Posted by: Clue | September 14, 2012 at 02:19 PM

Notice how I call YG out and say I lose respect for him and he goes ballistic. He acts like it doesn't bother him but ever since I said that he's reverted to bashing me constantly with the hope of making me feel bad. Obviously he's irked by it because he's been trying to get back at me since and acting like I care about what he says and his elementary school jokes. My little brother can come up with better jokes than all the 'your mom' jokes you have.

YG you're officially the lowest troll on the blog, how does that feel? You "don't care" right? Except you'll spend the rest of your life bashing me because you think it'll affect me....but you're blog king and don't care about any of this, right? ;)

Guy's (D20 and Craig)

YG is one of the Trolls many Aliases. Just one of his More Normal Alias. Which Makes it Difficult sometimes. But one of his most Civil Alias. Kris and Odin can Tell U. Remember the Mike Vick Conversation a Couple Days Ago.

Or those got Deleted???

But Dashi was online. Can't Delete The Dashi's Hard Drive(Brain). Don't MAtter How Enlightened Dashi Gets.

That's Why Everytime The Troll(Mr.1001) Challenges Dashi, Dashi tells him Only in Front of People. Not just To Make a Spectacle out of him. But For Witnesses.

Dashi has been there when the Troll is getting his Behind handed to him. Only to Wake Up in the Morning and the Only thing left is his CORNY ONE-LINERS.

Happens All the Time.

Why do u think so much hate for Odin when he doesn't post nothing all day? LAte Night Bukkake Sessions for MILK BOY!!

Dashi likes MonkeyBoy, but MilkBoy Seems more fitting. HE just loves to Suck it Dry!!

0-2 After Sunday!

Also MilkBoy = Adam Beasley

Hey YG, is this your biggest accomplishment in life? Being Dolphins in Depth blog king? Havent you ever gotten married or received a nice promotion or a full time job or anything? Those are real accomplishments, not making the most posts under the most assorted names on a Miami Dolphins blog. I wish my life was as simple as yours....wait, no I don't. I'm glad I'm educated, have a job, a steady relationship, a social life, and friends.

On that note, heading out for the night. I'll come back later to see what YG (Your Gonads) has to say about me. Until then have a good one totem troll.

Pro Football Weekly’s draft preview noted Tannehill’s “release point often drops low, resulting in too many batted passes.”


24-14 Dolphins. Raiders have a bad day

Dashe, no matter how hard you try, you'll never be as annoying or as retarded as coalition. You're trying hard though.

We've seen you & the other dillweeds here like D20, Craig all stick up for one another. You're all 1 in the same. You maye not be trolls but, you all act like the same so you can easily be taken for one.

Egotistical, know nothing, loud moth jerks. The lot of ya.

You should all hook up n start a bowling team. You can call yourselves the A-holes. Very fitting, a bunch of a-holes playing with balls all night.

Season ticket sales have dropped over 20,000 sinnce 2006 and have dropped every year. LOL

Sunday will be 6 consecutive losses. YAWN.

that is being optimistic but also realistic. both thing are sorely lacking here!!

Posted by: jaison | September 14, 2012 at 02:40 PM

Nice post Jaison. I agree with about 95% percent of it, if not more. I was reading it and thinking: (Why couldn't I have posted this?).

Seriously, this is pretty much the way I feel about most of the situation. I would have posted as much too, but it would have taken me 8 posts and three days worth of babbling.

I do want to put up the Wins this year, but development is really the key. The big/main issue. And I means at all levels, across the board. The QB as well as the new offensive system. The rookies and first/second year players that will be around when were challenging. The Defense and the new Defensive system, etc, etc.

See Jaison? There I go with all the **Babbling** .

Seriously Man, nice post - ValHalla!!!!

PS: Another One Bites The Dust?

Are you sure about YG being another of the blog trolls alases? I know quite a few people are now saying it. I was hoping he wasn't. That means one less REAL poster among us and ONE MORE Blog Hit Troll Alias.

WTF - How many different persona's does this idiot use? Why does Armando allow it?

YG I hope you address this allegation because alot of posters are now saying it. I've talked to you under your.............under the few names you've used here for a LONG-LONG time and I would feel pretty let down if it's true.

(PSS: YG, by few names above, I mean the ones that you obviously used, not some trolling aliases. You know what I mean? Like Dying Breed and Yesterdays Gone).

Anyway, I hope you address this allegation!

Shaken and Confused!!!!

Philbin thinks the team can go 0-16. Matt Barkley come on down. (Barkley will be cringing at the thought of joining this cespool).

Official worst blogger / homer list. For the first time ever, we have a 4 way tie for 1st:
Odin / Coalition
Craig M
Yesterday's Gone/Dying Breed

Posted by: Homer B. Gone | September 14, 2012 at 03:50 PM

I don't know if this was meant to be a trolling insult. But it's not in my book! If you're calling me the biggest Homer, I'll take it.

David taught Goliath a lesson and that's been my mentality throughout LIFE!

The only thing I find SLIGHTLY insulting about it is the "4 way Tie". When it comes to being a Homer, I like to think I'm the BIGGEST ONE AROUND!

But Thanks just the same. My name was mentioned FIRST, so that makes ME the WINNER!


They're likely going to have to switch Tannehill to WR after a few more games like the last debacle. 38 QB rating. YIKES!

All that Matt Ryan's failed to do thus far is beat a "top 5 nfl qb". Still this just begins his 5th year in the league. Posters like CraigM aka MiamiD20 are the same idiot posting under different screen names.
Its very unmistakeble. LOL

Posted by: Yesterday'sGone | September 14, 2012 at 03:14 PM

Kris, you can't have a debate / convo with a biased homer. They'll never see it the right way. Only the Homer Way.

Posted by: Homer B. Gone | September 14, 2012 at 04:00 PM

YesterdaysGone - Homer B Gone.........Hmmmmmmmmmm.

He should take his own advice. B Gone.

Another troll bites the dust was right.


Yopu idiot, they are also sayiong that you are me. I wasnt quite so you were that stupid. Now I am. LOL


Moore at QB and Tanny at WR will improve the team.


For one, youve been here far too long, and you know when I change my screen name I let everyone know.

For two, youre actually listening to people whose football posts make very little sense at most.

For three, and finally. How in the hell can you hold credible anything these dummies have to say. There football knowledge isnt even credible. Now you want to believe things they totally assume?

Geesh, give yourself a break already. LOL


Even though they pick on you, A lot of what you say is far more credible than these idiots making accusations I have many aliases. Come on dashi, wake up, youre smarter than them.

Theyre picking on you with thier troll aliases because thier jealous. Wake up already buddy. LOL

No one should ever question odins stupidity.

Sentences I make when i am drunk make more sense than anything YG says when he is sober. i could come across smarter then YG when i am drunk. LOL

I really dont care who is or isnt a troll here. Youre only held to the standard of the contents of your posts. There only two real categories here each poster or alias falls into:

The sensibles and the idiots. Some here are just far better making accusations others are trolls than contributing "MEANINGFUL" dolphin football post. That doesnt include snatching shyte out of your asss on a daily basis. LOL

Odin @7:54

Great post(really is but just had to infuriate the troll so Dashi will say it again GREAT POST)

Agreed, YG please don't be Oscar and his 1001 names. Even though the other day u exposed urself over the mike Vicki situation.

Dashi is with Odin on this One. There can only be 1 MOST OPTIMISTIC HOMER.


Odin U might be 1st now, but Dashi is the Fastest Rising. By Week 6 Dashi Guarantees Victory.

YesterdaysGone - Homer B Gone.........Hmmmmmmmmmm.

He should take his own advice. B Gone.

Another troll bites the dust was right.

Posted by: Yep | September 14, 2012 at 08:09 PM

LMAOLMAOLMAOLMAOLMAOLMAOLMAOLMAO Boy are you gullable! Yes, 1 word in our names is the same. I can see how a slow simple mind would try to make the correlation between another blogger.

So according to you, when someone posts about 1 of these dolts you like, you say they are just a troll with an alias.

But, when you show up with an alias & call them a troll, what does that make you? Let me help you:


Lemme ask you a serious question, what's life really like in La La land?

Playing it safe is why this team is not that good anymore.
Playing it fast and loose with garbage like Tanne is why this team is not good anymore.
Keeping Ireland on staff is a losers bet.

Posted by: JackSparrow | September 14, 2012 at 05:45 PM

Wowsy-Wowsy Woo-Woo! Everything Miami sucks.

Now repeat and post over and over and over............

ROTFLMFAO-Of all things, our Troll is SchlebRock right off the Flintstones! His BRAIN is right out of the Stone Age-LOL.

New Material Troll.............NOW!

i is sensible cuz i is YG and i no that my posts is good. LOL

Douchey, you're not the most hated man. You're the 2nd most pitied, behind coalition.

I mean, how many people have the courage to talk about themselves in 3rd person like you do.

I mean, that takes BALLZ!

You question why Armando or the Herlad ban your posts? That's klike asking why is the sky blue. I mean, have you even tried to read them?


3yrs ago I told everyone oscar had 1001 aluases. They didnt believe me. They thought I was nuts. Now theyre trying to accuse me of being one of them.

dashi, posters like CraigM and DummieD20 spew unsubstantiated falsities and plain outright ignorancy. Then they have nerve to hate you when correcting the.

They dream of a world where everyone's stupid and thier ignorancy has no chains. They seek to fight anyone that corrects them. I have the balls to admit when Im wrong. Correction is my friend, not enemy. Some idiots just love being idiots with no correction in sight. LOL

odin, isn't it past your curfew?

Odin's crack house is located in South Central. 10 pm curfew.
