« Patriots defeat the Dolphins 23-16 | Main | Some curious coaching decisions on Sunday »

Dolphins fear worst as Long MRI Monday

Publicly, coach Joe Philbin barely acknowledged the Jake Long injury, saying after the game he had no update on the matter. And players who have been told not to comment on injuries towed the line. "Can't comment on injuries," Jonathan Martin said.

But privately?

Two players told me they heard Long tore his left triceps and one staffer said that's the early diagnosis. Long had an X-ray after the game whose results were inconclusive. Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network is reporting Long will have an MRI on Monday to get a clearer picture but that, "It doesn't look good."

If what everyone fears is reality, Martin is expected to take over at left tackle for the Dolphins. He played the position throughout the game Sunday. He was a left tackle at Stanford.

Long, meanwhile, will go into the offseason unsigned and uncertain of his future. The Dolphins can obviously try to sign him, franchise him, or let him test the market in free agency.

I doubt they allow him to test the market. Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland has said in the past that Jake Long will finish his career with the Dolphins but, as you know, things can change in the NFL.

One never knows.

Craig,

Dashi is With F4L On This One.

Dashi is About to THROW A WHOLE FOREST WORTH OF FIREWOOD ON THIS FIRE(The Jake Long Over a QB Debate)

THE RAMS!

The Rams Would've Probably Made the Trade Pre-Draft! Jake and Our #1 For Their First Round Pick! Maybe add a 2nd Round Pick! FOR THE RIGHTS TO RG3!!!

That IS ONE OF THE OTHER 31 TEAMS THAT WOULD GIVE AT LEAST 1-First Round Pick!

WITH THAT SAID!

JAKE WILL BE A DOLPHIN NEXT YEAR!
-------------------------------------------------------

And Agreed. With The Blog.

If U Put Jake On IR! Might As Well Put Dansby On IR!

Tank For Te'o!

Tell Dansby He is Going To be back Outside! OR Te'o Can Play OLB!! His First Season! Keep Burnett! AND MAKE MISI ANOTHER DE!! ANSWERS THE FRONT 7 Question!

AND ADDRESS THE WR AND CB QUESTION WITH THE 2-2nd Round Picks! With one of them Being a High 2!

fin4life,

So now Long's 'over the hill clown'? REALLY? That's what he is in your eyes? Bit harsh, no?

'An over the hill clown'.....GEEZ....tough crowd.

Don't you all see? It's not the D but the O. Yes?

CraigM,

That same socalled beat Pats oline is the same one that has helped Brady make them the highest scoring offensive team in the league.

Im done with this topic bud.

YG,

They were missing a couple of guys today, including Mankins....but then I know how you like to undervalue OLmen.

CraigM,

You want a pass rusher drafted 1st rd. Thats fine bud. No amount of what anyone says will deter you. So its useless to debate you on this man. Your locked into what you want. Thats fine, everyone has differing opinions.

(we have to replace Cris Clemmons)

LONG
FASANO
BESS
DANSBY
CLAY
THEY MUST ALL GO ......

Brandon Graham getting the start for Philly lets see what he does in Babin's old spot.

YG @ 8:36pm,

Likewise.

Nobody answers me(the Truth admits no arguments).

Weird arguments tonight guys. I'm going to bid you adieu.

Have a good evening....

WHY THESE TWO SELF CENTERED 2 POSTERS, YG AND CRAIG M DON'T FIGHT NO MORE,I DOUBT THEY BOTH BECAME SMART .

PLEASE,FIGHT WITH EACH OTHER ....

DC....

SELF CENTERED PEOPLE ..........

Aloca,

Dashi Should be on the Top of The List!

AT LEAST U GOT MY NAME RIGHT THIS TIME!

What about Ur "IDOL"?

U KNOW THE OTHER DASHI. From Asgrab.

Great Game by Koa Misi.(I remember odin saying, how can one Man cause so much pain? I only tell the Truth, buddy).

I watched Jonathan Martin at left tackle and he looked very good, I would have zero worries getting rid of Long at this point. He's made of glass.

CraigM,

Take a moment to listen to yourself. Youre not coming off of the opinion you want a pass rusher no matter what anyone says. You'll beseech every moment to make that argument whether truly legit or not.

Fine man, you want a pass rusher 1st rd. Can we just leave it that and you stop trying to attack everyone who doesnt agree with your opinion?

I state my opinion too. Doesnt mean its right, doesnt mean its wrong. Seems the guy's opinion you should disagree with most is Jeff Ireland's. He's the one who does the actually drafting but it seems you think he's doing a bang up job.

Yours and my opinions mean squat. It isnt worth squabbling over. Ireland's highly unlikely to honor either of our opinions on draft day. Yet you turn blind eye to him.

DASHI, I THINK ONCE A POSTER BECOMES A SELF CENTERED LIKE KRIS,IT BECOMES VERY CLEAR,THERE'S NO NEED TO READ HIS WORDS NO MORE ,.

ALoco,

THE NEXT TIME YOU MAKE A FOOTBALL POST WILL BE A FIRST.

((BUFFET OF IM ALWAYS LAST IN LINE))

I've been a Dolohin since 1971 (I've seen all the winnig;and now all the losing) Although I am Tired of the losing we can't continue to do the same thing and expect diff results.We have to keep our Staff in place and Draft the best players(not just "our needs")We have to scout better and develope our players. Stay out of the trash bend guys. We have just whiffed on too many picks.our high picks are off the team or out off the league. Where are our TE,CB,S,&Playmakers? I want to stop pullin for my Dolphins ;but I could never do that in my heart.Our team has been plagued by poor management. Shula fired,pass on Moss for John Avery,let Scott Mitchell walk, hire numerous wrong coaches,cut Will Allen ,trade draft picks for scrub QBs,hire Head coaches who don't want to be here,waste high draft picks(Allen ,Ginn Jr,White,Odrick) Stick with Philbin ,let Jeff go and get it turned around.Losing Sucks!!!

fin4life,

So now Long's 'over the hill clown'? REALLY? That's what he is in your eyes? Bit harsh, no?

'An over the hill clown'.....GEEZ....tough crowd.

Craig M | December 02, 2012 at 08:34 PM


WOW Craig! You been drinking today or something?? I asked you if signing an over the hill clown like Chad and selling it to the fan base as a win wasn't enough of an indicator about where we were headed, in terms of trimming the FAT of the CAP for 2013 ect....


In this scenario you then listen to any offers for your perennial Pro Bowl LT who is all of 26 (at the time) I'd bet you would have gotten calls were the other teams 1st RD pick in 2013 would have been in play. The incredible drop in play and contract status make this an impossibility today but it was do-able at one point.

I answer your posts given a healthy respect for your opinion so don't take it like an attack on your views. If you notice right now there is only a group of regulars on here and were all spit balling ideas given on mutual frustration at our fav team being perennially out by Dec. My point is it's all good and I don't disagree with other ideas just feel strongly about mine and this forum to vent.

So did Reshad Jones(there you're right,YG), heve a great Game.

ALOCO TRIES TO MAKE UP FOR THE FACT OF HIDING HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL. BY PROVING HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT NOTHING.

((BUFFET OF SMALLEST LEFTOVERS))

Women are the only ones that call Men "self-centered", Aloco. Have they tilded you that way? Never?

ALOCO KNOW A LOT OF NOTHING ABOUT A LITTLE OF EVERYTHING.

People leaving the Blog now, even Canadian People. hehehe

KNOWS

Dolphins sign Jake Long for 2 years for $50 million. What a deal.

Im out too Oscar, tell your friends I said hello.

Yesterday's Gone 4Ever! | December 02, 2012 at 08:43

I happen to agree with just about everything you've posted on the state of the team today while others seem to be taking the losses to seriously we all felt this coming in the Pre-Season, some ignored it and others accepted. Today it's about the future and I feel we missed the boat on dealing Long before the Oct. deadline. If we got a 2 for an up and down CB what would have a LT with a League wide rep for toughness gotten??

Have you seen the beatings J.Cutler, A.Rodgers and Stafford are taking in the NFC North. Had we called those teams alone we may have started a bidding war for Long who we will have to FRANCHISE to keep he won't sign for less than 10 Mil a year, remember you heard it here 1st!

Jonathan Martin had a great Game at pass protecting at L tackle. Better than Long would have done, I'm sorry to say.

We drove you out, YG? Shame on you.

Aloco,

So Me Speaking in 3rd Person Doesn't Count? (Schucks)

Still Dashi is the Illeist.

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

YG,

I Though U knew IT IS FUTILE! To Talk To Craig About NOT GETTING A DE IN THE FIRST ROUND!! IT'S LIKE GETTING HIM TO ADMIT DANSBY IS OVERPAID! Dansby Is The Best MLB In The NFL for 2 People IN THIS WHOLE WIDE WORLD! DANSBY AND CRAIG!

I HAVE GIVEN 1001 SCENARIOS ON HOW TO GET RID OF DANSBY! WITH MY LAST ONE BEING DRAFTING TE'O AND OGLETREE IN THE DRAFT!! AND WE WILL BE SET FOR THE NEXT DECADE AT LB!! AND ONLY SPEND ABOUT $3 MILLION A YEAR FOR BOTH FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS! ADDING TO LESS THAN 1 YEAR OF DANSBY!!

YET! NO WAY!! NO HOW!!! We Need a DE 1st Round!

THE GAME OF FOOTBALL IS MORE THAN RUSHING THE PASSER!! AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PLAYER ON DEFENSE ISN'T A DE!!

IT"S THE GUY WHO CAN CALL A AUDIBLE FROM A ALL OUT BLITZ!! BECAUSE BRADY IS GOING TO PASS NOT RUN!!

WHEN HAS DANSBY CALLED 1 AUDIBLE ON DEFENSE?

HECK I SEE TE'O DO IT AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL!!

ALL REAL MLB'S CALL AUDIBLES!! FOR THEIR DEFENSE!! EXCEPT THE BEST MLB IN THE NFL! BURNETT IS THE ONE THAT CALLS THE PLAYS FOR THE DEFENSE!! THIS IS DANSBY'S FIRST YEAR OF HIS LIFE CALLING THE DEFENSIVE PLAYS!!!

Mr. Burnett did a great job Today calling the Plays.

fin4life,

Parcells argument for taking Long is that he was the safe pick. Im sure Jax thought the same thing in taking Boselli.

Still, not knowing exactly what we had in Martin yet, it may have been premature to trade Long preseason. Bottomline, after the Long/Bosseli experience, future gm may deter from seeing 1st overrall lt's as, "THE SAFE PICK".

You really don't want to mess with an O line's cohesion, if you can help it.

Guys I know Cowboys LT Tyrone Smith is a good player but he's pinned Brandon Graham to the floor on a bunch of plays. Graham looking very mediocre in his shot as a starter.

F4L,

The Rams! Before the Draft.

reshad jones might be the best player on this team right now

Oscar,

So Burnett is Still Calling the Plays?

If That Is True. DANSBY SUCKS WORST THAN DASHI THOUGHT!

You MUST get away from your prejudices. If not, you will suffer more Pain.

fin4life,

Probably the best thing concerning Jake Long is to move on and admit the error. Oh yeah, the guy that can admit the error, took the money and ran.

Anyway, we were never going to get the value placed in Long back anyway. Resigning him, and still seeing further decline wouldnt be the answer either.

Let's face it. The Long saga is turning into another huge bungle by this fo, whether Parcells is still here or not. This may be the largest blunder of all, we're getting zero in turn for it, except huge savings on the cap.

Can we all agree that Ireland is the best GM in Dolphin history?

He called them Today, Dashi. Didn't you notice it?

Tell Dansby He is Going To be back Outside! OR Te'o Can Play OLB!! His First Season! Keep Burnett! AND MAKE MISI ANOTHER DE!! ANSWERS THE FRONT 7 Question!

AND ADDRESS THE WR AND CB QUESTION WITH THE 2-2nd Round Picks! With one of them Being a High 2!

Dashi | December 02, 2012 at 08:33 PM


Great scenario we should find a way to E-Mail Ireland because this idea works for me get Misi back to 270 pds. which was his weight at DE in Utah. I would however put Te'o in the Middle day one and move Dansby back to OLB and yes Burnett should be brought back and agree 100% about this answering the front 7 for 2013.

Burnett is a definite keeper, Dashi.

Get Tannehill OFF my team.

Well, at least with Martin we can get 4 more years of lt play at 2nd rd rt money. That and what we'll save by letting Long walk, is our only saving grace.

Just because you cant change the past doesnt mean you screw up the present and future too.

Misi is a strong side LB. No way he's going to cover anybody if he would weigh 270 lbs. What's wrong with you Today, YG? Think, think.

Im just wondering when will Ireland realize that predjudices, acorns, and overbloated ego is not a rebuilding plan.

I, like Philbin does, think that Pat Devlin would fit this System better at QB. So....what do we do?


Misi is a strong side LB. No way he's going to cover anybody if he would weigh 270 lbs. What's wrong with you Today, YG? Think, think.

Posted by: oscar canosa | December 02, 2012 at 09:16 PM

Oscar, scroll back. That wasnt my post. Wth is wrong with you today? LOL

Yo Jeffy, is your momma a hooka?

You is the only other poster besides me here, YG. That's why. (you think we are fools?)

I dont want anyone hurt but this may be a blessing in disguise as from a decision stand point. Martin has 4 more games and one hell of a test next week with the 49ers dline, to see what he can do. If he passes the test then we focus on the right side AGAIN. There needs to be a plan to replace Incognito too...
Im a Fins Fan but my old college coach is the 49ers dline coach.. Jim Tomsula.. awesome guy and great coach

It doesn't take away that you're wrong about wanting Misi to weigh 270 lbs, don't it?

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

Dez,
are you using your one call from jail to ask that? Or are you bailing yo mama out of jail?

What would really be a blessing in disguise is if Tannehill gets hurt.

Prejudice. Prejudice.(they don't know any other way to defend Themselves)
