« The breakdown of Ryan Tannehill's first game | Main | The outgrowth from battedballgate »

Wednesday afternoon practice update

Just the facts:

The first play of team drills in practice today? A tipped pass at the line of scrimmage by defensive end Cameron Wake. The pass off Ryan Tannehill's hand fell harmlessly incomplete.

This issue needs work, folks.

Former NFL quarterback and ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer was just on a conference call and said the issue is not Tannehill's fault. He blamed predictability of play-calling.

Meanwhile, Texans defensive end J.J. Watt said last week and repeated this week that he stole the Dolphins snap count by watching Hard Knocks. Watt had three batted passes and a sack against Miami.

Running back Daniel Thomas (suspected concussion) is not practicing today. He is, however, working on the side on the field. Lamar Miller is the next guy up, folks, if Thomas doesn't pass his battery of tests this week.

Defensive lineman Tony McDaniel, hurt most of preseason and reinjured at Houston, was neither on the field nor working on the side. As I stated in the last post, the fact the Dolphins added Ryan Baker suggests they are concerned McDaniel will not play Sunday.

ROTFLMAO-This is truly the irony of ALL things IRONIC!

Monkey Boy(aka Sparrow/Continental/jcb, etc, etc...)was swinging all over Tannehill's nads after the draft. He even actually had some serious football conversations(by that I mean, not just his overly repeated one liners)about how great Tannehill was going to be.

Right up until he was named the starter that is. And now with the tipped passes, he's taking it to the next level. Anything to try and get a rise out of someone-lol.

It was like last week. He was blasting Ireland for having drafted Gates. Just running Gates into the ground.

THE DAY AFTER GATES was cut, he was blasting away about how dumb Ireland was for letting him go when we have no receivers-ROTFLMAO!

Troll Boy, don't look to Ireland when searching for stupid. Just look in the mirror-lol.

PS: Can you please change up some of your dumb wore out one liners. They nasty and stale.........like your Breath ;)

Good move bobby. I know you said a couple years ago you remained a Season Ticket holder because you were a true fan, which I could appreciate. But the Owner needs to know that the fans want a winning team AT SOME POINT IN THE NEAR FUTURE. You're making the loudest statement of all of us (cause most of us don't live down there and can't be Season Ticket holders) by not renewing until they improve. I'm behind you all the way in that regard.

I'm trying to get down to a game or 2 myself.

Tannehill does not, I repeat, does not have pre-snap vision. He walk up to the line and just runs the play.

Ok there pal, but in Re-Ality(as you like to say-lol)Tannehill makes reads quite often and is evidenced by the Audibles.

Matter of fact, in his first game as a Pro, I saw him audible TWICE on the same play!

Not quite sure what fallacy your going on with, but I'm SURE it's an attempt to bolster some dumb trollish point.

Cheers!!!!

By the looks of the title I figured balls were being swatted everywhere. The way I look at it is nice play by Wake.

Wow!

Nice post! Who would've thought of that?

Apparently not Armando and his Gaytarded Boy Toy!

It's really hard to be a Dolfan these days. And it's getting harder when you witness the blind continue to lead the blind into a deep ditch. God help us.

Stiffie, Please forward this to "Head Fin in Charge".
And BTW, Great post.

Great convo you guys got going there.

You do know San Fran is looking better and BETTER.......Right(hint, hint...)?

Odinstank, What say you?, Fins 9 Oak 3..
Your thoughts please.

DC,

I don't feel confident we will win. I don't quite see where we have the advantage. People can say what they want but this team has ZERO wins under Philbin. I'm not blaming him and I ralize four were meaningless preseason games but do we honestly believe this team wouldn't have liked to have won one game in the preseason? We have that monkey on our backs and until we win that first one it will grow.

bill, I never said that Bush would have a huge rushing game. I think he can be very effective for this team in a 'non-rushing' role. I look to Sherman and Philbin to utilize him in a lot of different looks in this game. I like our chances but I see it low scoring and we're going to have to rely on our defence again.

Btw bill, I noticed you said that Palmer is 'garbage'. While i agree with you, he did have 297 yards passing on Monday. Not a bad day.

yes craig but did u watch the game. guy missed a ton of guys, looked awful. behind all game got some garbage yards. palmer would never scare me.

Btw, I'm not buying this crap that JJ Watt knew where Tannehill would be throwing by watching Hard Knocks. That's nonsense. What did the show reveal that could have been useful. Only thing that might have helped him was watching the preseason games and that film footage would have been available to anyone. So he can say what he wants but the show wasn't responsible for the Knock downs.

PS: Can you please change up some of your dumb wore out one liners. They nasty and stale.........like your Breath ;)

Why are you talking in ebonics? wore out one liners? They nasty? Can you please speak as if you didn't reside in a crack house in downtown Detroit?

You should take your own advice. Talk about worn out 1 liners? You can't even put them in clear English.

Jack Sparrow

Your posts can not be taken seriously because you yourself do not take them seriously. So basically you are wasting your time by writing in here because people just shake their heads and laugh as they pass over your posts. If that's what you're going for then great, keep up the wonderful work, everyone is ignoring you. But if your trying to get people to listen and maybe change a few peoples minds you're going about it the wrong way. A little objectivity would show people that you do actually have a brain and can use it once and a while.

Forgive the stupidity, it's the only way he knows to drum up hits for the blog.

In short: Classic Troll. To beignored, nothing more, nothing less and mostly nothing to offer.

Sherman and Philbin haven't addressed the tipped passes issue yet in his career because they still had to teach him how to be a QB. You can't nitpick and teach him everything all at once. Now that tipped passes is the most prominent issue they'll address it. You can't address something so detailed when you're still teaching him the overall position.

Let's see how he adjusts in the Oakland game

true, we def dont want to win this game. need to lose one more than browns do

Good Lord have you noticed Sparrow's and Lincoln Continental's MO's are EXACTLY the same?

This guy is like the plague regardless of what ever sign in name he uses.

Coalition, aka diahrea of the keyboard, goes into complete nitpicking mode. As evidenc by 27000 posts to every post he disagrees with.

Shockingly, using the same old recylcled gay inuendos & insults he has used for years.

Coalition, get some new material. You're played out kid.

Graig, That's just Dying Breed/Yesterday's gone Flip=Flopping like he does everyday.
The Old saying in south Fla "You dont like the weather, Check again in 15 minutes" also applies to DB/YG or as aloco likes to call him "FLIPER BREAD" LOL

Posted by: Odins Bloated Liver | September 12, 2012 at 02:41

Craig M did you notice how this guy spelled your name. The exact same way ALoco kept doing it when he was trying to antagonize you.

I think that Coalition Nut Job is right when it comes to the troll. It's just one or two losers going on and on and on.

I do wonder why Armando allows it to continue? Is quantity really more important than quality?

Quite obviously is around here.

Bill,

I DID in fact pick up on the spelling of my name. Complete giveaway. And I believe it is only a few guys doing the trolling. My guess is the Herald and Armando are in fact more interested in NUMBER of posts rather than quality.

Typical, Agree, depending on the time of day it is Odinstamk talks great football, then the times he's drunk it's ugly, Lets hope Odin seeks the help he naads.
I'am gone for the night so LETS GO PHINS.

Oscar the Troll, you were outed by Kris last week. Busted and everyone agreed. Every time there is a troll you are either in the blog or not far away. Make all the excuses you want, you are a MAJOR Troll.

Posted by: bobbyd12 | September 12, 2012 at 03:43 PM

LOL Gotta laugh guys like this off.

So, because a bunch of the nobodys in here think something, that makes then right? LMAO

The rate of accuracy from these know it alls is less than 1%!

I am supremely confident, that just like in football matters, you guys have NO idea what you are talking about.


Odin seeks the help he naads.
I'am gone for the night so LETS GO PHINS.

Posted by: Odins Bloated Liver | September 12, 2012 at 04:21 PM

Shoul have read "needs help" Not"Needs Neaads".
But then again maybe he needs both.

Odinstank, What say you?, Fins 9 Oak 3..
Your thoughts please.

Posted by: Odins Bloated Liver | September 12, 2012 at 04:05 PM

I should know better than to answer a Troll, but I really do want to express my opinion on this one.

When you consider the state of.........flux, that both teams are in, I wouldn't offer a guess, preciction or anything. It's just too difficult to tell with all the youth, inexperience, miscues and everything else going on with BOTH TEAMS!

Being The Homer that I am, I'm betting the Dolphins win a squeaker that ends up looking just as ugly as both teams last games.

How Ya Like Me Now?

Oscar the Troll, don't you have a little BMX bike riding to do? Get out your cute little helmet and jump on some dirt?

in the 40 some odd yrs Ive been watching NFL, Ive never seen 4 tipped passes resulting in ints in one game.

DOLPHINS WILL WIN THIS WEEK MARK IT DOWN

Mando can you please stop using the word folks? Comes across so unprofessional....

IRELAND WILL BE FIRED IN DAYS ..

WHEN I SAID A WEEK AGO THAT THERE'S A FIGHT BETWEEN PHILBIN AND IRELAD ,THAT WAS A SIGN IRELAND WILL BE FIRED......


ROSS CAN'T AFFORD HAVING IRELAND ANY MORE....

OUR GARAGE MANAGE WILL BE NO MORE ...

GOOD NEWS WILL COME SOON..........

WAYCH HOW ARMANDO WILL REACT TO IRELAND'S FIRING ?

WATCH

Just the facts, dilweed sucked and so does tannehill. He is the king of tipped passes and he is not a franchise qb and ireland will be gone at the end of the season and the dolphins will be drafting another qb next year. Just the facts!

The "vacant lot" QB will be cut in 2 years tops.

Does he even shave?

Sparrow--
Tuna quit because he didn't want to get caught molesting Ireland in the shower.

HELLO FOLKS!!! HOW IS YOUR MAMA AR' THEM

Until we have receivers that can go...Tannehill won't ever be sh**t. We need time for him to go and receivers that can do the same. If he can't find the throwing lanes after a three step drop, he won't make it. He may be the next man, who knows but, without the instincts and help from coaching and the right receivers, he never will be. Marino had at least some of the help he needed.

YOU KNOW WHAT PEOPLE IN MIAMI ARE STUPID NOW THEY ARE DOUBTING TANNEHILLS THROWING MOTION....... MY GOD THERE HAS ONLY BEEN ONE GAME PLAYED AGAINST THE #2 DEFENSE..... THE KID WILL BE GREAT WE MITE OF WENT WRONG WITH ALOT OF PLAYERS BUT NOT TANNEHILL....... HE WILL BE GREAT AND AFTER THE GAME ON SUNDAY PEOPLE WILL BE FINALLY CHANGE BECAUSE MIAMI WILL BE 1-1......... Just like NAMATH SAID I GUARANTEE A VICTORY............. FINAL SCORE MIAMI 24 OAKLAND 3...... THis Will happen however it doesnt mean the problems are fixed

Mr. Ross is not a liberal, he is a supporter of the Republicans. Bill

does anyone else find it hard to take anything said by a guy who takes his handle from the extremely lame pirates of the Caribbean seriously??

just use your actual name dude!!
