Dolphins check in on Routt but signing not likely

The Dolphins have made an inquiry with the agent for cornerback Stanford Routt, NFL sources are telling me. But ...

The Dolphins are not interested at this time.

The team reserves the right to change its mind in the future. Things can change with player injuries and level of play, etc. But the club has no plans to sign Routt any time soon.

So there's that.

Routt is an interesting player because he has so much potential and the Raiders and Chiefs have paid handsomely for that potential. But both have been disappointed with him to the extent they both cut him.

The Raiders drafted Routt in the second round of the 2005 draft after he ran a 4.27 at the scouting combine. In February of 2011 he signed a three-year contract that included $20 million in guarantees over the first two years.

But Routt didn't last with the team into that second year. After starting 15 games in 2011, he was released after a season in which he didn't play up to his price tag.

Seeing an opportunity, the Chiefs last February signed Routt to a three-year deal, this one worth $19.6 million. But the Chiefs stink and Routt was apparently not fitting in well with the defensive scheme. So, yes, he was cut November 5.

Routt, I'm told, is best suited for man press technique. He apparently struggles to learn zone concepts and sometimes has blown coverages on calls.

Having said that, he's out there. The Dolphins checked in on his status because Richard Marshall is on injured reserve and they just gave up 433 yards passing to the Colts.

But nothing is going to happen with him here any time soon.

kris,

The thing is, Oscar's actually very clever and smart, he's far from dummy. If I had to make an educated guess, Oscar's real screen name maybe one many of know, respect, and chat with on an intelligent level every day.

The Oscar and the many other screen names may just be to throw everyone else off. The gievaway may be if we can think of a respected poster Oscar never attacked.

YG...

just keep ONE name.....why is this so hard for you....seriously....

kRis, teLl us hoW yoUr keYBoard is malfunctioning to cHange youR naMe AGain. pleASe

kris this is the 2nd time you accused me of being oscar. You did it during the live blog and I told you it wasnt me.

Ask anyone here, a few weeks back CraigM and Mark In Toronto also thought I was using troll names to attack them. Then a live blog the question was put to Armando and he told everyone the only screen name I use is my own.

Kris you know from past scuffles we had, I dont hide behind troll names to attack anyone. Please stop accusing the troll of being me.

Oscar is neither clever nor intelligent.....

I see right thru THIS charade.....

Wow, did you see Andrew Luck tonight? I couldn't dream of playing that well! When's the last time I lead my team to victory? Wait, I don't think I have! At least my wife is hawt

kris,

further proof it the troll isnt me is right before your own eyes. At 11:42 PM, you, me, and the troll(LOL) all posted at the exact same time.

Do you know that President Kennedy was killed on the day of my Birthday? Nov. 22. What a coincidence. GN

11:42 is timely coincidence....

i'll ghive you that.....

time for bed.....

This is a conversation for the A.M. time period.....when the normal and reputable posters are around....

kris,

If you continue to keep "FALSELY" accusing me of trolling you. I will bash you back and you will know exactly that Im doing it.

STOP BEING A STUPID MOTHERF... IVE TOLD YOU IT ISNT ME YOU STUPID PIECE OF SHEET!

NOW, THAT WAS ME YOU IGNORANT JUNGLE BUNNY. THAT ISNT A RACIST REMARK. REGARDLESS OF COLOR THATS WHAT YOURE ACTING LIKE. IVE DONE NOTHING TO YOU AND NOW IVE HAD ENOUGH. TOLD YOU SEVERAL TIMES IT WASNT ME!

Do any of you know how many seconds are in a minute? Google it. Then divide that by the time it takes to type a sentence or two, and...well, nevermind...it's over your heads.

kris,

I have far better things to do than follow you around the blog and troll you. I thought we had gotten past our little fued months and months ao. Obviously you havent.

We can crank it back up anytime you like. Im over telling you a hundred thousand ime Im not the troll trolling you.

Notice how Krissy disappears when someone brings up his name changing incident that he tried to blame on a bad keyboard and mouse. We know better.

kris,

Furthermore, I rarely even notice when you're here. I very rarely read any of your posts. You spend more time fighting trolls and accusing them of being me than making actual football posts.

I dint even notice until Armando's live blog Sunday that you were even accusing your troll of being me. Your troll's gotta be loving it. He knows you dont even have a clue.

If Armando says there are no trolls, why can't you just leave it at that? Why all the 3rd grade bickering all the time?

Guys it's quite obvious that Odin/douchi is the troll here, Just look at the times Odin/douchi stopped posting, Right around the time the trolling started, Or Is it that Odin/Douchi is busy with HOTTIE?
LOL the jury says ODIN/DOUCHI guilty of trolling.
Odin/Douchi, What say you?

Or Maybe Odins Busy with Douchi??

I'm sorry, Routt is AWFUL. Not only does he get burned often, in press he commits to many penalties.

He is Jason Allen part two...AT BEST.

We beat the Titans this weekend if we stop Chris Johnson from having a big game. Plain and simple. If he has a big game against our run defence we have a problem. Time for Odrick, Soliai and Starks to step up after being close to being invisible in the last game. If we can't win this game it shows just how far we need to go. Titans are a bottom ten team and this is one we should win. Philbin will have these guys ready.

kris,

ONLY half of this post could be even remotely true.....

Either you IGNORE my post....

or....

You are reading them as I school a troll.....

No surprise he really...true to form....you straddle the fence and use BOTH sides of the argument.....it makes it easier for you to FLIP-FLOP later.....

as far as your "warning".....lol.....the best material you got is to create more sign-in names...and call me "Krissy".....about 1,000 times....

For a while you were impersonating me (in black)...but now I have changed to BLUE...let's see how long it is before we see fake Kris comments in BLUE as well...I suspect not long....but right now your fixated on impersonating Craig M.....and making racist Canadian comments for some reason....

Armando's word means SQUAT to the REAL POSTER's on here....only a TROLL would even think to use him as a reference.....Armando's ONLY goal is more hits....and you and your MULTIPLE SIGN-IN names keep Armando happy.....

Here is the deal YG.....Your writing style is unmistakeable...and your like that serial killer WHO WANTS TO GET CAUGHT......

You write the same long-winded diatribe....throw in some "YG-ism's" (under a fake name of course)....and then laugh as you BELIEVE that you are fooling people....

For your edification...it is I that laughs @ you....and I am sure many other posters do as well......your writing style is a dead give-away....and you wouldn't have it any other way....its like you mark it with graffiti....

So feud or no feud...I don't give a SH@T....just KNOW...your not fooling me....

kris,

The thing is, Oscar's actually very clever and smart, he's far from dummy. If I had to make an educated guess, Oscar's real screen name maybe one many of know, respect, and chat with on an intelligent level every day.

You couldn't make my POINT @ 8:03 ANY BETTER....if you came out and out right ADMITTED to being the TROLL....

Thanks!......

Are the Colts that good....or ar Gabbert and Henne that Bad.....

That loss to Luck doesn't sting so much now......

kris,

Too bad you live in such a delusional and conspiratiry world. In the mental health world there's a label for your sickness. It's called:

RARANOID SCHIZOPHRENIA

To bad you havent gotten the memo "modern medicine" has found way to treat your "delusional sickness". Its caled:

MEDS

Please get yourself some before its too late, of ot isnt already. Thx for stopping by.

"PARANOID SCHIZOPRENIA"

My guess: Jaguars are that bad. Didn't see the game or the score but from what I read it sounds like the Jaguars are an awful team

SCHISSY KRISSY LOL....

SCHISSY KRISSY,

My guess is that you really are one of oscar's troll names pretending youre being trolled, just to create Armando blog hits. LOL

Kris,

The Jaguars are THAT bad. Sounds like Henne did OK but the game was far from over by then. Figure they are a bottom three team and it could just be they are looking at QB again in April. Pretty sad! They're a franchise without a plan. This was us a couple of years ago. Not sure what the answer is but Mularkey's not the answer either.

YG....

Your suppose use your "Oscar Persona when talking about mental illness....

Your mixing up your persona's...better be careful....or you will expose yourself even further....

SCHISSY KRISSY,

My guess is that you really are one of oscar's troll names pretending youre being trolled, just to create Armando blog hits. LOL

Desperation.....that is the LAST STEP before the final melt down....take NOTE folks.....

YG and ALOCO just merged.....

Craig M....

Thank GOD PHILBIN seems to have pulled us out of the funk we were in.....

I think this week is HUGE....it will be nice to see how we bounce back after a let-down game....

and good teams don't lose two in a row.....

SCHISSY KRISSY,

On the real serious, I never trolled you. Schizo boy, you arent that important to me. For the life of me, I cant evn figure out why even trolls find you worthy to troll.

We all know youre one of Oscar's troll names pretending to be trolled. Just to get a little attention you dont recieve in the real world. Schissy Krissy, psyche meds are a terrible thing to waste. LOL

OK...i

and when did you forget how to spell sissy...ALOC...i mean "YG"......

I guess there is no defense against the truth huh......

Kris,

You called it at the time of the hiring. You liked the hiring from day one. Good call!

Folks,

Schissy-Krissy's at again. A mental meltdown right before your very eyes. Created false trolls just so he could start in with me again.

Oscar you must proud of your troll persona "schissy-krissy! LOL

Thanks Craig M.....

I had a REALLY GOOD feeling about this guy.....he had the appearance of a "do whatever it takes" kinda guy....

and 33 years of coaching without a HC gig.....you KNOW he's hungry....

What brought all this stuff on, guys? I thought we were all living in peace and harmony again? What did I miss?

why is YG REPEATING everything I have said....

AGAIN...no defense for the TRUTH.....

he is using the...."I'm rubber your glue" defense....lol......

It gets better...and MORE OBVIOUS with ever post.....

YG....

when you find yourself in a hole.....STOP DIGGING...lol......

CraigM,

Not to bring you into, and you dont have to respond. But you know that Armando said I dont use fake screen names to troll anyone.

However, schissy krissy's been accusing me of trolling him for weeks I imagine. I just noticed Sunday during Armando's blog. You also know that lately Ive bent over backwards to be a more responsible poster.

Now, I have the schizo-krisso, trolling me falsely accusing me of trolling him. Aint that a motherfkr.

Craig M....

you can only turn a blind eye for so long.....

The impersonating s really the lowest of the low.....I figured I would just SHOW the blog what many should ALREADY know....you just got to really pay attention....

I think Ireland will draft a TE with speed in the first three rounds because Egnew was a swing and a miss.IMO they need to score more points so in the first two rounds I would draft offensive players and no LT or Center for the complete draft.I would look for defensive players after the second round.They have to continue to take risks the old-school way of drafting the best player available by need on the board has a team constantly having many needs they dont complete building the offense or defense.I think Ross might have been instrumental in Ireland pulling the trigger and drafting Tannehill with the first pick,he needs to get involved again and draft offensive players that can score touchdowns in the first two picks next year.

CraigM,

I have no clue what kris' problem is. At least you heard it from Armando himself I troll no one. kris owes me an apology, but, Im sure he'll never be man enough to give it to me.

Im sure he'll much rather falsely accuse me than admit he's deadass wrong. Bank on it.

To all of you on here keep in mind Philbin is a head coach that was an offensive coordinator and he wants to run the west coast.He dosent have the players on offense to run that scheme.

YG...

If by trolling you mean RESPONDING to your post from last night....

Then you really don't know what a TROLL is......

I guess you and Armando can ask each other...ti "define troll"......

or in your case...."duh....what does being a troll mean".....duh....

Get out of here....Consider yourself FULLY EXPOSED......

Steve Ross save the Dolphins. SELL THE TEAM!

Schissy-krissy,

From this point on I'll just totally ignore you. Fighting with an idiot has always been a lost cause.

Have fun wuth your troll you accuse to be me. You both should get married. You deserve eachother.

King Shula....

He will....and thats what makes this years 4-4 even more impressive....

OK YG.....

i'll just wait for your next screen name...then we'll chat then....

buh-bye.....until then.....

Can there be any doubt now that the Colts absolutely TANKED the season last year. Jim Irsay is a shady bastid.

When we get 2 WINS in the next 7 days......then that loss to the Colts becomes a distant memory....until mid DEC....

The ONLY defensive player I would consider drafting in the first two picks is a pass rushing specialist whether he is considered a LB or DE in college.

Mr. Obvious....

There is ZERO doubt.....but we knew that when we were watching it....I wonder how Goddel didn't see it....

Guys, I'm not getting in the middle of it and I'm no taking sides. I have no idea what happened but what I can say is YG has been a LOT better lately Kris. I have NO clue who is and isn't trolling and impersonating on here, I just find it the most juvenille thing I've come across in a long time. I don't begin to understand the mentality. How does it go: 'Let's go to a site to talk about football and when things get boring I'm going to start making it look like other people are saying stuff when they're not'. I just don't get it. Would love to hear what a shrink has to say about it.

Amyways guys, I hope you can both get passed it. You're both good posters and the blogs a happier place when we're getting along. GO 'PHINS!

BOYCOTT THE FINS UNTIL IRELAND IS FIRED! WE'RE TIRED OF THE LOSING! HELP MAKE A CHANGE!

Craig M.....

I appreciate the comments....

I dont want to hear this rhetoric that so and so is a 1 or a 2,nobody knows if he will be a 1 or a 2 in the NFL.Intangibles are what seaparate the players in the pros,every one of them has physical ability enough to make it through the minor leagues which in football are high school and college.

obvious,
so you're suggesting that the owner called a meeting with players & coaches to say: "I want you to lose and lose big in every game so we can draft a QB who never played a game in the NFL".

It just does not happen...players play to win, period.

Sometimes they lose their competitive edge when it appears the game is lost...like the Jets laying down two weeks ago on us.

...but to suggest that every player on the Colts made a choice every Sunday to lay down for the sole purpose of getting Luck in the draft is crazy.

They sucked, but not for Luck.

According to NFLN.....

Belicheat is 22-3 against the Bills.....

22-3......

dam....

Whatever the line is....i'm taking it in this game.....

Kris,

I believe the loss to the Colts will be costly for us. They have a hard schedule ahead but they are now 2.5 games up on us (having the tiebreaker). I'm not disappointed because we're making very good progress. I actually believe our best chance is going to be to win our division but to do that we've got to win both against the Pats, no easy task.
