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.

@8:18 and 8:23

Ok YG.

Definitely at 8:23

Dashi was wondering cause U and Dashi have had Good Football Conversation Before. U must Suffer from the Usual Name HiJacking From the Clown.

But at 8:23 U said Something NO TROLL EVER SAYS "I really dont care who is or isnt a troll here. Youre only held to the standard of the contents of your posts."

That is a Trolls worst Nightmare. Writing Quality Post. Integrity. Own Up to ur Words.

YG, Thanks for Clearing things up. U SIR ARE A BIGGER MAN THAN OSCAR AND HIS 1001 ALIASES WILL EVER BE.

Or Shall we Say Adam Beasley(HERALDS #1 TROLL)

In all probability, this next Game will be a sloppy affair for both Teams but exciting to watch for anybody that likes them bringings.

I love Jake Long, elite level player. I take a franchise QB and a couple of elite WRs/TEs for him ANYDAY!!!

Nice post by DC earlier.

I'm tired of this debate, but that doesn't mean it isn't a Good One.

Great Conversations/ debating today/tonight you guys. Even though Troll boy kept trying to jump in with an "Everything Sucks" post. You guys were/are rocking it!

Both sides of the debate has merit and thats what makes it a good one. I love Long and EVERYTHING Miami and to be honest, I would have had a hard time passing on him.

I think it all comes down to a combination of variables. When on the clock it all comes down to A). Your Beliefs. B). Your Philosophy and C). The biggest variable of all: Your Team Needs.

I've always believed if you can get a Franchise QB, you get him. Though, I can be HONEST and say **AT THE TIME** I myself wasn't so convinced that Matt Ryan was, "That Guy".

Great Stuff You Guys! I enjoyed Reading........MOST of it-lol!

ValHalla!!!!

i is the YG and i am a wart and i is always sensible and right almost all 100 percent of z time. LOL

I have Dashi's URL, whatever.

dashi,

Its because the real trolls here hate meaningful football posts. Thier only here to keep things stirred up to keep blog hits high.

Thats why most of the time I just ignore them. Or choose to fight them back when I choose too, taking away thier sense being provoking. Usually I make them disappear to reappear in another alias to attack someone else whose an easier bite. LOL

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

Posted by: Dashi (MOST HATED MAN IN BLOG ENTERTAINMENT) | September 14, 2012 at 08:25 PM

ROTFLMAO - You Go Dashi!!!!

Troll B. Gone,

Who says Dashi is Talking in 3rd Person? Not Dashi, The Problen is Dashi has a Tribe of Little Ching-Chong's that Type his Post and they can only Refer to the All-Mighty by His Name.

With that Said the Only Time Dashi's Post have been Deleted is when he uses Profane Language.

And Thats Rare. Because Dashi can Put it In Anybody's Mouth in a Eloquent Manner Without Using Obscene Language.

Only other time is during The MASS DELETION OF POST FROM U, ADAM BEASLEY.

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

Posted by: U R A LOSER | September 14, 2012 at 06:29 PM

Not right now Monkey Boy, Daddy is planning his next Block Buster Novel for Armando's next Post!

I got a Dead Line Kid, go bug.........Your Mom!

Of course, no regular here can forget the tamtrums displayed by YG and odin(eerily similar they were). Now we are waiting for similar from Dashi.

i is YG and i is like zeus! i make all people go away only to come back when i is gone. but i is never gone! u jus don see me cuz i hide behind a new name like i is a ninja. then i come back under my real name and save the day! LOL i is good ya LOL

broder!

dashi,

I still believe CraigM and MiamiD20 are the same poster. If you switched the screen names around from CraigM's posts to DummiD20's, you wouldnt tell a bit of difference. Exact same thought patterns, the exact same writing style.

That's why I told CraigM today that if they arent the same poster. His father fathered an illegitimate half brother with DummD20's mother. Ever notice when Im around CraigM suddenly disappears and DummieD20 appears? CraigM know I'll call him out on his lunatic posts so he resigns in as MiamiD20 thinking I wont notice. LOL

Dashi's URL's

Plural. If U truly have it U will know That. U Can Keep The URL. Still doesn't stop whats Coming!

U already Know Clown. Dashi doesn't have to remind u Of what it is, Just That it's Coming.

Thanks that URL Comment is going on there. Hopefully The Herald can Download 1GB WORD FILES(That's How Long IT's Going to be).

Pump that It might be big Enough for a .PDF File. Dashi is Writing a Book on U Clown.

Know Ur Role BOY!!

What happened, YG? Why are you upset?

You can tell me. Nobody else will know.

i is YG and i make sensible statements cuz i is the chosen one. da matrix said so. LOL

@ 8:53

YG why Do People do this?

We can't always be right. Just this Season, Dashi has been Wrong on 2 things. Garrard will be the Starter over T-Hill and Hartline's Value To the Team.

What's Wrong With That? That's Called INTEGRITY!!

Or Being A Man Like Someone likes to SAY!

That was to U, the Clown said that To before the Live Blog Right?

C'mon, man, you know I'm harmless. Probably you and I(for = or different reasons) the only ones here on a Friday night. Talk to me.

Dashi,

Yup, youre certainly right. Armando(the clown) told me the year Jimmy Graham was drafted he didnt think the dolphins should draft Graham because he was a huge project. Now Jimmy Graham makes it big time and Armando(be a man) tells me he never made that statement.

Yesterday's Gone didnt forget. LOL

Isn't it cool to type when you are drunk, YG? By the time you finish writing your buzz has gone half away and you can continue to imbibe. How about that?

oscar,

Have you ever wondered why I hardly ever respond to you? You hardly ever post anything coherant enough to even correct. LOL

Aluases.

Cheese 'n' Crackers.
Got All Muddy.

Joke Franchise, no?

Am I the only one who can see that Coalition is also Dashi? Look at the post at 6:44 PM and tell me that's not Coalition. Coincidental that they have the same exact writing styles heh? And Coalition who used to be Odinseye was the first one to do the 3rd person thing. Must all be coincidence. LOL!

It is coherent and I never wonder about anybody else except Me.

Bloggers with no life:

Odin(Coalition)

Oscar Canosa

Yesterday'sGone

Dashi

Dashi doesn't Forget, YG. LOL

Not Like the Old Senile TROLL. Constantly Forgetting His Name.
---------------------------------------------------------

Oscar Switch Ur Name to Adam Beasley. (Dashi has been droping Hint's All Week)

So Dashi and U Can Battle it Out During the Raider Game. It might be more Entertaining than the Game.

But Late Night For ONLY UR ENTERTAINMENT? U Must be A Loco! HA HA!!

Dashi Cracks himself Up.

I believe Dashi has been fuc-ed up for quite some time now.

Dashi & Odin are trolls.

That's Weak Captain.

Dashi is Dashi.

Dashi Respects Odin and Vice Versa(I Hope)

Also, Fool!!

Dashi Thought U had the URL?

That would explain it, NO?

Does anyone else come to this blog and wish they see the headline "Dolphins Part Ways With Ireland, Hope Makes A Comeback"? Maybe it's just me...

I should know, hehehe.

Dashi + Odin = prototye to build the perfect idiot

Oscar, let them keep thinking all the trolls are you.

Just 1 more thing they are always wrong about.

Dashi, please change your name to reflect your writing style. May I suggest:

DaShe (The most hated Tranni in blog entertainment)

Much more appropriate for you!

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

Posted by: Yesterday'sGone | September 14, 2012 at 08:11 PM

I was asking you a simple, honest, straightforward question, a question that many, MANY OTHER posters have put out there.

I had hoped it isn't true. As I posted above. But your response in and of itslef is very telling. What's with the insults and the Bullshyt?

It seems to me, that if it wasn't true, you would simply address it and say as much.

Your retardedly childish insults instead of a straightforward denial are telling. I guess I have no other choice man, you've said enough. You might as well be Oscar Canosa now because it's obvious by your reply:

You Sir are now officially the Troll and will be ignored by all from this point forward. Just like over at Ohio's blog when you went off on your Trolling Hissy Fit.

Man, and I had always hoped you were "For Real".

(Big Sigh...........)

PS: How come all your posts are barely coherent and your grammar tantamount to a 2nd graders?

(I always wondered about that, but being too polite to ask. Oh well, you started calling names and got busted Trolling.....Not Me!)

Dashi has been F'd Up since Birth.

Nothing New there.

Why Don't U Attack with Some Real Force. U tell jokes like a B!!tch

OH, WAIT U CAN'T ATTACK THE DASHI BECAUSE I'VE MUTTED U OUT. UR WHO'S BOTTOM B!!TCH? THE DASHI'S

UR RUN IS JUST ABOUT OVER. WAIT TILL WEEK 4 COMES AROUND!! THE PRESSURE WILL BE UNBEARABLE. Tick Tock!!

You guys can be so gullable. Its very obvious YG uses multiples and is one of the trolls, aka blog bully.

1. He rarely converses on an adult level.

2. When his opinion is disagreed with he lashes out and starts calling people names.

3. After that ,and all of the sudden , other names no one has ever heard of come in and start attacking the people YG was debating.

Could this be more obvious?

Homer B,

Give it up man. The gigs up-Your Busted.

ROTFLMAO! The Spelling or two words are the same? Man-O-Man you are stoopid. Check the content brother. All you have to do is read your two posts. They virtually identical. Of course you didn't see it until it was TOO LATE-Dooh!

Nice try, trying to distract people with that spelling/two words are the same crap! NOT!

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

One last time, SERIOUSLY, watchout for the Razor Burn!

Face Down(in yo case)......and ah...... Bottom's Up!!!!

All I can say is this crappy team BETTER beat the Raiders! It was extremely embarrassing what the Texans did to them but at home? Against the Raiders? It would be devastating to loose the home opener, weather advantage and all. I expect them to come out fighting as if they were playing in a superbowl. Watching elite teams like the Packers, Steelers, Patriots, Ravens, etc. play, just reminds me how far behind this team is thanks to Jeffyboy Ireland.

i is YG. i has no idea what i say only half z time. i is a god according to myself nd z other people i pretend to be. if u no like me then i go away n come back as brand new man. i is not smart but i think i am cause i tell myself that. i only post on blog on friday night cause i am a fun outgoing man. i think i no football cuz i talk about it all day. where did my life go? oh ya im immortal god LOL

i is YG n nothing i say is original cuz i cant think of new smart things to say. y cant i be a witty little boy. my way of being witty is to change my name. cuz that makes me ninja and no one can find a ninja. LOL

I don't want the PHINS to lose Sunday but if they do it just gets Jeff firelend closer to getting fire!

i is YG n i is scared people will call me out on an opinion i have cuz i fear n think about this blog n the people that infest it. that's y i change my name duhhhhhhhh. y cant i talk normal. i cant even have a conversation without sounding like an idiot. im jealous. i make troll lists cuz it makes me feel warm inside. like people love me. blog people love me!. i only say yo mama jokes cuz thats all i no LOL

i is YG. i say LOL after everything cause Armando says folks after everything. that makes both of us right! that makes us twins! dream come truuuueeeeee. LOL

Troll ok time for Real News.

D.Thomas is Out. Armstrong might be Doubtful.

So L.Miller and R.Matthews might be Activated.YES!!
---------------------------------------------------------

Odin the Real YG said it best. Dashi just cares about the Post not the Name. It has gotten ridiculous to keep up with the Names.


Jeff Ireland and YG were the masterminds 9/11.

YG killed Kennedy....not me.

^^^ Just an Example!!

Watching the game last week, i'm hopeful we can start moving in the right direction. The offense was moving the ball pretty consistently until all those turnovers hit. Not saying we're a really good team, but being week 1 with a rookie QB vs a Super Bowl contender, i saw a few things to be hopeful about. Lets see if we can beat up on the raiders a little.

As for all the recent drops and trades, Good. Lets get the guys that will make up a our future core so the fins have a shot at being a year in year out contender.

Hope for the best, plan for the worse.

You folks don't get tired of that year, after year, after year?

You folks are so use to planning for the worse its now turned into...

"Hope for the best, homerize the rest."

This Raider beat down of Miami should be the eye opener you folks need. Quit homerizing the rest.

Antonio Smith fined $21,000 for repeatedly kicking Incognito on the play where Richie says he was simply trying to lay on his legs to prevent him from getting the fumble. The hold was missed by the refs, and whatever was going on under Richie was hard to see. But what was clear to the league were the repeated kicks to the shoulder and arm area by Smith. No wonder why Smith was crying like a girl, he knew the fine was coming.

Pouncey also fined for hit out of bounds.

Also, anyone heard from or seen Crowder? A few people in here were screaming that we were stupid for cutting him and the Pats would grab him and make him a pro bowler. So anyone know who he's playing for now?

Sick and tired of Irescum ruining the franchise. When will it ever stop?
