Tannehill listed as questionable, team cautiously optimistic

The Dolphins have prepared as if Ryan Tannehill is going to play on Sunday and expect him to play on Sunday, according to various sources. But there is that tiny bit of uncertainty that remains and is still troubling.

The truth is Tannehill has practiced every day this week. But he's been limited. The truth is he's recovered from each practice well enough to go ahead and practice the following day. But the fact he hasn't been able to do everything troubles.

He's had swelling. He still has pain.

But he thinks it is manageable.

So where does that leave us?

The Dolphins are cautiously optimistic Tannehill will play. But his final status will most likely be determined Sunday morning. That will follow a flight to Indianapolis and a night spent sleeping in unfamiliar surroundings. Tannehill will also get treatment in Indy, I'm told.

The Dolphins are prepared to use Matt Moore if Tannehill unexpectedly suffers some sort of setback. Indeed, Moore is ready to go even if Tannehill starts but cannot finish.

We'll see.

The news seems much more positive on defensive tackle Tony McDaniel. He also will be listed as questionable because he's managing a knee injury. But he expects to play.

[Update: WR Brian Hartline is also listed as questionable with a groin/hamstring injury. He was limited in practice today but also expects to play, barring complications.]

I am predicting the Colts win on Sunday predicting the exact score is an exercise in futility.

Fins 1984, I thought exactly the opposite would be true. I will definitely look for that next time Moore comes in. I thought they were jusy blitzing Tannehill alot because he is a rookie.

Key to winning the game
Score more points uhen the Colts, Its that simple.

swelling in the knee AND we have Moore. This is a no brainer, you start Moore.

I guess some missed the 'swelling' part. A bruise of the knee doesn't swell. A torn ACL or miniscus however does.

Sit Tannehill.

i enjoy watching 'Dora the Explorer' on Saturday mornings and touching myself.

What's a no brainer is that Philbin is in a far better position than any of us to know the depth of the injury and make the right decision.

Elmer, how dare you!

In addition to being coaching and personnell experts we are also medical geniuses with far more understanding of this situation than any of the people actually involved.

Here are my keys to victory tomorrow:

The team scoring FIRST in tomorrow's contest will have the first LEAD of the game. It is my belief that teams having the LEAD often go on to win, especially when they have it at the end.

The Dolphins will attempt to move the football tomorrow on offense by utilizing both RUNNING and PASSING. It is believed that these are best ways to advance the football forward.

On defense, the Dolphins hope to stop the Colts on THIRD DOWN. If they do this, the team believes the Colts will have to PUNT frequently.

Most importantly, Miami hopes to SCORE MORE POINTS than Indianapolis. The coaches have told the players this is the KEY TO VICTORY (although one coach also observed that sometimes the team gibing up the FEWEST points also emerges victorious).

Thank you for patronizing my blog. There is a two drink minimum.

I still remember the good ole days when if the Dolphins were on a 3 game winstreak, it had better be the first 3 games of the season. Not week 8.

My have things changed. A 3 game win streak at week 8 now represents moving up as a team. When it used to represent mediocrity as a team.

Boy, what I would give for 3 cookies for a penny again.

Are you, like, super old?

Food for thought:

The best way for neither team to lose Sunday is for the game to end in a tie. A neck tie and a bow tie would be fine too.

((Buffet Of Knowledge))

DID YOU SEE THAT RUN IN THE FLORIDA MISISPPI GAME JUST NOW O MY GOD O MY GOD O MY GOD!!! IT WAS LIJKE HE HAVE A ROCKET IN HIS BUTT!!! LOL!!!!!

Time travelers never grow old. Thier travel machines just breakdown.

OR LIKE THEY PUT HIM ON FIRE AND HE WENT RUNING SCREMING DOWN THE HILL I'M ON FIRE I'M ON FIRE!!! HELP ME!!! I'M ON FIRE!!! DID YOU SEE IT ON THE ESPN??

Young man, you need to calm down and compose yourself. I'm sure it was not that exciting and college football is for imbeciles anyway.

Its not going to be easy to beat Andrew Luck on his home field. The dude is a winner and has already beaten Peyton Manning.

Has anyone heard from Dashi?

He and Odin are staring at each other in the mirror. Once they are sufficiently drunk, both will begin posting.

Going to this game can't wait go fins

LOL At Everybody, I'll say around 4 or five when they both wake up.

Dashi just loves making the ignorant sound even dumber.

So keep going troll.

Since I just posted now! That must mean I haven't stop posting since this post was put up 2 days ago!

My Bad! Clown!

On Football!

We all know the fins are going to soundly whoop The Colts! 24-9!

17-9 with Moore as the QB!

Oh, and again it's funny u guys CRUCIFY JAKE LONG! For missing 1 Block!

YET! MARTIN MISSES A BLOCK AND T-HILL GETS INJURED! AND NOT EVEN A MOUSE!

U SEE THE IGNORANCE!

LOOK AT THE PLAY! MARTIN BLOCKS DOWN ON A BLITZING OLB! THE JETS 1 PASS RUSHER!

J.LANE MISSED HIS CHIP BLOCK ALSO! BUT THE MAIN ASSIGNMENT ON THAT PLAY FELL ON J.MARTIN!

But let's keep up loving the back up qb! And not talk about the important things. OK, proceed!

Uh-oh, Look for odin to start posting any minute.

Dashi, It's cool to post, I do it whenever I have a couple minuts to kill, Obviously you and Odin have all the time in the world.
I guess we can thank our soon departed President for that.

I think the Colts have a great shot to beat the Dolphins at home Sunday.Lets see what happens.

Dashi, which items are on the agenda for you to agree with Odin today?

???

OK BUDDY! Thumbs UP!

Just cause u use 1000's of different names. Doesn't mean ur killing a couple minutes!

And U do know Dashi and Odin are 2 different People that disagree a lot! And are more than a 1000 miles apart!

Yeah, the 'disagreeing' stuff is a pretty good tactic, agreed. Makes it marginally more believable plus it has the comedy value of imagining a guy yelling into a mirror.

Plus, at least the 'Dashi' character doesn't obsess over gay themes and I like the 'third person' references as a unique character trait.

Douchie, You might not know it cause your pretty stupid but there's like a dozen posters here that cant stand Odin,You you and him showing up at the same time is everyday is..., Well lets just say it's...GAY.

Does ever just one single day pass without odin bringing up Meth and Gayness?

Ever?

Meth Mouth talks about me when I'm not even posting. Tell the truth Home Skillet, how many times a day do you just sit there and fantacize about Gumming Me To Death?

Hi Dashi!

Astonishing!

OK.

U are also forgetting. The Dashi's Propensity to eloquently use my vernacular! Whenever possible.

And not everyone likes the illeist shtick. Some people hate confidence!

Must have low self-esteem issues. Not my problem! Talk to the Doc!

And u guys aren't proving Odin wrong. U are talking about him when he is not here! Nothing wrong with defending urself. Some of us are just more aggressive talkers than others! Dashi knows.

"illeist?"

Trying to find that one in the dictionary. Latin origin?

Illeist- To speak in third person.

Comes from the word illeism.

Out of all your Buddies, you're the best cork sucker of the bunch.

But what good are you if you only suck 3 corks a year?

Come on now? You know you're buddies would get rid of you in a heart beat. They'd bring in somebody that's not quite the Cork sucker you are, but their not afraid to get in there and get their knees dirty.

Lookit everybody, "J" thinks he's a Diva when it comes to cork sucking. ROTFLMAO!

I bet you don't make it past the Red Ropes next time you show up at the Rainbow Room.

odins only two friends here are dashi and kris. i wonder why?

....It's cool to post, I do it whenever I have a couple minuts to kill.....

Posted by: Just passing by. | November 03, 2012 at 01:51 PM

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

And EVERYBODY here believes you too Billy(wink, wink ;)

Duh........ROTFLMFAO!

How come every time Dashi the man soooo concerned about the size of mens extremeties comes on, a guy named Twinkie is there saying HI Dashi in a flirtation manner

Is he a cork sucker too?

Everybody has seen his CONSTANT gay references and obsessions. It's pretty much his default defense mechanism...and spectacularly weird.

Yet the guy is under the delusion that he's some kind of wildly popular conscience of this blog. And the even bigger delusion that there's one person who can't stand his juvenile, sad blather.

The reality of the situation--that he's largely viewed as a clown here by MANY--is just too much for him to take.

Yes. Latin origin.


just messin with ya , so any up date on weather Tannehill gets the start?

We really need to win this game , we are finally re gaining respect on the sports shows and newspapers , a win would go a long way to keeping it up , nice to here ESPN and the NFL network speak of the Dolphins in a positive manner, instead of as the league baffoons

Plus, at least the 'Dashi' character doesn't obsess over gay themes.......

Posted by: Everybody Knows | November 03, 2012 at 02:07 PM

You mean like you do when you pretend to be the Gay Preist?

Yeah, Dashi is way above that. You, on the other hand........not so much.

Too Obvious-LOL!

Right now the MVP goes to the best QB in the league Matty "Ice" Ryan. Atlanta undefeated.

Extreme ways

Extremities are more than just hand and feet. Not cool!

And we can go over this 1000 times!

Hand size is essential in throwing a football! Look it up!

Ur going to make Dashi go on a soliloquy to prove my point.

But the short answer! What is the first thing U need to learn to throw a football! GRIP!

AND IF U HAVE A BIGGER HAND! U CAN GRIP THE BALL EASIER! THAN SOMEONE WITH LITTLE HANDS!

NOW! LOOK AT Moore! He's a Fumbling Machine! And if the ball is wet he loses grip real easily!

Lol Ive never heard a man go on so much over the size of another mans hands , its a little creepy, first off how does he even know how big Moores and Delvins hands are to begin with

But Moore does not have a problem with it, is what I`m saying , the ball has never sliipped out of his hands trying to throw it , he don t fumble alot ,it only matters if the QB has a problem and Moore doesn t so its not an issue to go on about

Dashi,
Do the hands mean the same as the feet? (if you know what I mean lol).

What games are you watching , I`ve never seen him having a problem holding onto the ball, he had a QB rating of 96.6 last game no fumbles no turn overs , where are you getting this from ?

Uh oh!

Odin and Dashi a Troll's worst nightmare!

The TrollBusters! Dada dada da da Dada Dada!

LOL!

I told you, you were this stupid-lol.

I hadn't even posted today, yet here you are talking about your favorite source of income-Bhwaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaa!

You really aren't stupid enough to think EVERYBODY sees you for exactly what you are do yo........oh, wait. Forgot who I was talking about. Yep, he's this ignorant-ROTFLMAO!

Including your dumb reverend routine, you've been talking this gay stuff since you and ALoco got out of bed this morning.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL ;)

My ex was a nurse , she told me that men from India have small hands and tiny weenies , but Moore is not from India , oh and the conversation came up cause one of her friends asked her is it true black men are hung better then white men ,her reply was white men and black men are pretty much the same they both have men with average to big , she said its the middle eastern and especially India that are small , more so then the orientals

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

Try and explain it away any way you like.

The fact is you've been posting about me for two hours today, while I wasn't even here.

Now just admit it. EVERYBODY sees it. You'd just LOVE gumming you up some Uncle Odie now wouldn't you?

COULDN'T BE more OBVIUOUS-LOL!

Straight Ignorance!

Moore fumbled more in 10 games than henne did his whole career!

U forgot his last showing in the preseason? 3 fumbles in 10 minutes!

When u cough the ball up more than 10 times in a year! U got problems holding onto the ball!

Again, this isn't going to matter because we are talking about a nobody! A NEVER WAS!

Let's talk about real topics. Real Qb's!

And everytime I come on this site you guys are talking about queers or cork sucking , or the size of mens hands , what is up with that ? And no one has answered , any updates on Tannehills starting ?

I bet you don't make it past the Red Ropes next time you show up at the Rainbow Room.
