Dolphins face another fast, quick, dangerous back

The Dolphins were somewhat surprised on Sunday when Tennessee's Chris Johnson did something that 22 previous starting running backs had failed to do: He gained over 100 yards in a game.

Johnson had 126 yards on 23 carries.

The Titans basically dominated the line of scrimmage against the Miami defense. And Johnson did his thing both outside the tackles and, shockingly, between the tackles.

So it stands to reason the Dolphins want to get back to their typical selves. They eagerly anticipate starting a new streak against opposing running backs.

The problem is the Buffalo Bills on Thursday will come with a similar run scheme as the Titans did. And C.J. Spiller is a similar back to Johnson.

“Very similar, and their schemes are somewhat similar in that they feature like the type running plays," defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said. "They’re not the type of teams that line up and try to mash you off the ball. They try to get body on a body, get some movement and let those backs find the creases and use their athletic ability.

"They have speed unlike most guys in the league, both Johnson and Spiller, in that you practice against it, yet when you see it for the first time in a game it’s a little bit different. Sometimes it takes some getting used to the speed of the game so to speak, but we can’t waste any time getting used to it here this week. We have to be prepared to go out there and I think we’ll do a better job. We started working on it here this afternoon."

The Dolphins this week are stressing fundamentals. They have to break down. Have balance. Keep disciplined in their angles. And wrap up Spiller.

Otherwise he can leak out and use his speed. Otherwise it allows the Bills to become multi-dimensional on offense. Otherwise it promises another long day.

IF YOU LOOK AT HISTORY OF TEAMS SOLD IN THE LAST 10 YEARS,100% OF THEM WERE SOLD WITH OVER THE ASKING PRICE ....PEOPLE DYING TO OWN AN NFL TEAM....

Duuh I dont think it is profound nor should it be on this blog.That revenue is probably better explained as operating income.After I posted that I did a little research the television contracts with the networks and Direct Tv total over 4 billion a year which as far as I know and have read are split equally among the 32 teams.

And Oscar.

If Ur Naive! Enough To think the HEAD OF THE CIA!! GOT FIRED FOR "EXTRAMARITAL AFFAIR"!!!

Take one of those Bones From the Turkey!! And Bone URSELF TO DEATH!!

U know BETTER THAN THAT!!

Dashi Theory!

"Extramarital Affair"!! Means He was Spying for Someone ELSE!!!

NOTICE!! IT'S MORE THAN HIM!! GOING DOWN!!

AGAIN!! IT'S THE CIA!! THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY!! THEY ARE NOT TELLING U THE TRUTH!!! WE MIGHT NEVER KNOW!! THE TRUTH!! THE WHOLE TRUTH!!

U CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!

-------------------------------------------------------

AND THE ONLY REASON!!! U 2 ARE EATING A DEBONED TURKEY!! IS BECAUSE U GUYS ARE EATING TV DINNERS!! FOR THANKSGIVING!!

Dashi cooks the Whole Bird!! GIVE THE BONES TO THE DOGS!!

U DON'T WANT A DRY BIRD!!! BUY ONE OF THEM TURKEY BAGS!! THE EASIEST WAY TO COOK A TURKEY!!

Make Sure U TRUSS UR TURKEY!! ELSE WHEN U TAKE IT OUT THE BAG!! U WILL GET A DEBONED TURKEY!! That's How Soft the Meat Will be!! IT LITERALLY FALLS OFF THE BONE!!

TURKEY ONLY DRIES UP IF U COOK IT UNCOVERED!!! EVEN IF IT'S DEBONED!!

IT'S THE TURKEY MEAT ITSELF!! THAT IS TUFF!!! NOT THE BONES!!

You guys are so funny, at least to me.

Buffalo appears to be a crummy Team(you never know these days) but C. J. Spiller does not appear to me to be anything close to Chris Johnson.

DASHI.....IF YOU COOK A TURKEY WITH IT'S BONES ,IT WILLBE DRIER THAN COOKED DEBONED WHOLS TURKEY......


WHEN YOU COOL THE WHOLE TURKEY,THE LEGS COOKS WAY BEFORE THE BREAST AND THAT RESULT ON DRY MEAT ....

I saw a figure for the dolphins in 2011 or 2010 where their total revenues were 251 million and their operating revenue was like 12 million so Ross is not going to be losing much sleep at night over the lost revenue although what he is probably concerned about is servicing the debt which for the Dolphins was 40%.

The problem with Women my age is that they most have dry Pusssys, hard to get in there.

Aloco.

Get u one of them Bags!

Agreed! When it Cools! IT DRIES UP THE WHOLE BIRD!! SAME GOES FOR LECHON!! FOR MY SPANISH COMMUNITY! OR GRIOT! TO MY HAITIAN COMPADRE'S!

Should've added!! After COOKING!! LET REST 10 MINUTES!! AND THEN CARVE THE WHOLE TURKEY BEFORE SERVING!!

A THOUSAND WAYS TO COOK A TURKEY!!

UR NOT GOING TO DEBONE A TURKEY!! IF U FRY THE WHOLE BIRD!! ANOTHER ROUTE! JUST GET A BIG POT!! AND A TON OF OIL! JUST REMEMBER!! DON'T PUT A WET TURKEY!! IN THE HOT OIL!!

BUT WOULD AGREE THAT IF U WANT A FOOL PROOF!! TURKEY!! DEBONE IT BEFORE HAND!!

BUT UR ALSO TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THAT PERSON HAS ABOVE AVERAGE COOKING SKILLS AND THEY KNOW HOW TO DEBONE A TURKEY!

U AND I!! BOTH KNOW IT'S EASIER TO CARVE AFTER IT'S COOKED!

IF U ARE GOING TO DENIGRATE THE DASHI'S!! OPINION!!

AT LEAST HAVE THE CONVICTION! TO PUT 1 OF UR REAL ALIASES!! BEHIND IT!!

MAN UP!!

STFU about TURKEY!!!!!!

TALK FOOTBALL.....

This Sunday we Lost a MUST WIN!!

Now we need to WIN AT LEAST THE NEXT 2!! BEFORE WE GET ANOTHER MUST WIN!!

The rest of this Season! IS A EVALUATION SEASON!

Also!! TIME TO END THE GAFFNEY EXPERIMENT!! He's Basically Naanee!! Without the Fumble problem!! Still Drops!! Everything thrown his Way!! Time to see more of R.Matthews!!

With BIG BEN broken ( i hate injuries...but what's done is done)....

With BIG BEN going down....missing the next few weeks....and the STEELERS V. RAVENS twice in the next 3 weeks....the PLAYOFF picture has been changed.....

With the loss to Colts and Titans...we were all but DEAD....

But with the PITS MAN IF STEEL out of the way.....we have reason to have hope again....

YES ,LETS TALK FOOTBALL...

KRIS.... WHAT YOUR SAY ABOUT YOUR PREDICATION OF 11-5 ?


SECOND.....DO YOU STILL THINK OUR GARAGE MANAGER DESERVE A NEW CONTRACT ?

So I guess Ross is down 180 mill on his Dolphin venture. The way Ross has run this franchise into the ground he DESERVES to go broke!

I THINK ANY PERSON COOKS THE WHOLE TURKEY WITH IT'S BONES IS A BIG BROWN DONKEY...

This is what Armando should be posting about.....the Ravens will win the NFC NORTH.....

and even tho the PATS seem to be on a ROLL...they barely escaped the Bills Sunday.....

with RAPEISTBERGER going down.....the FINS now have 2 paths to the play-offs....

LOCO....and the rest of your names....

last time I checked....WE HAVEN'T LOST 6 GAMES YET.....

Go back to school and LEARN SIMPLE MATH.....

NOW WE ARE 5-4............


5 LOSSES

11-5

Well, Aloco I have cooked Turkey Whole at low temperature covered by a lot of Bacon and it has tasted great.

KRIS ,DO YOU HAVE ANY SHAME LEFT........

KRIS ,DO YOU HAVE ANY SHAME LEFT........

------------------------------------------------

What does that even mean.......

PEOPLE WHO PREDICT ARE VERY DUMB,LIKE KRIS WHEN HE PREDICTED 11-5 AND SAID THE FAMOUS QUOTE (( MARK IT DOWN )).SO I DID MARK IT DOWN MR,LUGI ...

This franchise has a history of treating their top players like garbage.

Reggie Bush
Matt Moore
Brandon Marshall
Jason Taylor
Joey Porter
Matt Roth
Wes Welker
Patrick Surtain
Dan Marino

If the FINS don't get fired up about this.....then they do not have a pulse.....

the PATS still have to see us TWICE.....we STILL control our own DESTINY.....we made it hard on ourselves by losing some games EARLY that we should have won....

we have to win some hard games....gotta face the 49ers....the Russell Wilson lead seahawks....but me made our bed....so we need to lie in it....

Aloco...

your INSULTS are as USELESS as your MANY SIGN-IN NAMES....

being INSULTED by you is like my foot being stepped on by a baby....

I feel sorry for your MOM....

Moron Kris predicted 12-4?? LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KRIS...WHY YOU DON'T MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS .....WE TALKED TURKEY,YOU DON'T LIKE IT ..WHY DON'T YOU LIVE AND LET LIVE ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Aloco....

Maybe Dashi will keep you company with more TURKEY talk ( why anyone would KNOWINGLY converse with Mr. 1001 is beyond me)....


I'll see you next sign-in name.....

11-5-FOOTBALL TALK ......


11-5

Moron Kris predicted 12-4?? LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like a gnat to a GIANT.....

Kris = MORON

I call ALOCO what he is....

ALOCO MAKES UP SIGN-IN NAMES.....to INSULT POSTERS.....

Pay attention people.......its all HERE for you to see.....

KRIS,


DO YOU ANY SHAME LEFT ?

All of your comments are ridiculous. The Dolphins will Blow out Buffalo this time and then your wind direction will change. They will be 5-5 and back in Wildcard contention- WE PLAY 7 more games - If we go 5-2 well then that just might be good enough to get in. Please look at the crappy records around the AFC and notably understand that there will be a 9-7 team in the playoffs -possibly 8-8 remember when seattle was 8-8 and beat new orleans in the wildcard.

Oscar is a liar, anyone who watched Pat Devlin on ESPN Sports Science knew Devlin can throw the ball.
He is the only 3rd sting QB in the league that goes out to dinner with his head coach.
And how were we going to beat Tennessee with idiot Philbin benching Reggie and Incognito?
Our secondary is useless. Jones takes horrible angles.

..Kris..Thanks for the shout earlier.

I have to chime in on this turkey nonsense...No bags, no deboning. If you properly cook your turkey it will be moist skin crisp. Brine the turkey overnight. Dry it well. let it come to room temp..This is the key, if it is cold you are screwed. Roast it free of stuffing with just salt, pepper, fresh thyme. Do not put any fat on it as the brine will cause the fat from the bird to render, and you wont get a crisp exterior..Baste only after the bird is done!!!! over the breasts with foil if you need, and make sure to truss the bird for even cooking...C'mon..Bags?? Dashi you are better then that.

..Oh yeah make sure to let your turkey rest..At least 20 minutes before carving.

wanna see a garbage franchise? look at those Marlins! LMAO! joke franchise for a joke city

None of the bad news bothers me, knowing Jeff Ireland is at the helm of the ship. Rumor is the Jets want him; hopefully the Dolphins lock him up with a long term contract.

NEVER TRUST A CITY RUN BY CUBANS! THEY'LL MAKE PROMISES THEN SCREW YOU OVER!

DD!

Great Point! On the Bird! (The Bag was the easy way, What U just Said is the REAL WAY!!)

U guys see what I mean by "Morons"!!! U have a little group here!! That would put Matt Moore in the same Category!!!! As Dan Marino!!!!! Really?!!!

LET ME GUESS!!! Z.THOMAS!! AND DANSBY ARE THE SAME!!!! MORON!!!!!

REMEMBER WHAT DASHI SAID ABOUT REAL DOLPHINS!!! ABOUT HALF THAT LITTLE LIST AREN'T REAL DOLPHINS!!!

Forget Spiller, the Dolphins are facing another strong passing attack, something they have zero answers for. After that the 49ers and Pats, our draft position should improve greatly over the next few weeks.

If the Jets want FIRELAND they will do us a favor just like they did for TS. Please Jets please Take FIRELAND I'm willing to plague $100 dollars and a partridge and a pear tree"
ROTFLMAO!!! A extension for Ireland!

Bills game is sold out. If we are embarrased on National TV, Ireland must be fired. Only a moron would trade Marshall, then draft 2 WR's in the 6th round and add an Egnew who can't get on the field.

Yes rye does.

Full on Flaming Rainbow Feathers!

Peacock + Phoenix= rye

A Flaming Pajaro!!

Kris 12-4?? HAHAHAHA

gotta give Ireland a chance. he has plenty of draft picks to give us solid impact players in 2013, if he does a good job, great, if not,look elsewhere for a proven gm.

Irescum should've been fired 3 years ago. What they do in the Buffalo game is irrelevant.

also, most of you have never traveled anywhere and if you did it was a very short trip and you probably rushed to the starbucks or tgi fridays because you are so afraid of anything unfamiliar, and therefore no nothing about quality.

Posted by: rye | November 13, 2012 at 11:01 PM

Gee Rye.......ah........we just know thats not exactly whats happened repeatedly to you.......RIGHT?

ROTFLMFAO! Come on Armando, your posters are getting STOOPIDER by the SECOND just from READING your Boyfriends Trollings.

Seriously man, you can EASILY get a smarter troll than this Blow Job waiting to happen.

Pretend your Joe Philbin and bench this ignorant, over the hill troll. He's OBVIOUSLY "worn out". Let him keep on mowing the lawn, polishing the Vette(and the Knob). But PLEASE, for all our sakes, get him off the blog for crying out loud.

FVCKING - SHEESH ALREADY-LOL!

I know you'll come back with one of you dumb and irrelevent replies.

But before you do, consider this. It's not just me. In all reality(and we all know it. You, I, Armando and everybody else that posts here AND the MULTITUDES that NO LONGER post here because of you)WE ALL KNOW this place would be 99.9% better off without you(Deep down inside, I'm SURE you know it moreso than the rest of us. We can tell that you have been SHUNNED most of your life. Seriously, it couldn't be more obvious).

But C'Mon Man, it's not OUR faults and it SHOULDN'T be our problem(Thanks Again Mando-Duh!).

So save your dumb reply Knob Polishing Bu-oy, I'm through with you-LOL.

ARMANDO! Be like Philbin. It's called ADDITION by SUBTRACTION.

Jokes over, it's time to pull the plug on your Bu-oy Toy. It's up to you, but Cote, Jackson and even Darlington(to name a few)know your "Blog Hits" are a joke.

Don't say I didn't try to warn you................

It's irrelevant, irrelevant. God-ammit, how many times I told you you don't Write English as you pronounce it!

Is it just me or is Odindouche totally incoherent?

I mean, I look at Odins posts on occasion. I have a masters degree and I have no clue what he's rambling about oe who he's rambling to.

Hey, Odins posts are Japanese to me.
