It's on: Dansby-Burnett vs Willis-Bowman

This is what's going on at Dolphins camp today:

I spent some time talking with Karlos Dansby today. I can report that the brace he was using on his left upper arm during the time he's been playing with a torn left biceps came off today. Dansby says he will not be using it anymore in practice or games because he feels well enough to go without it.

This is a big deal to him because the brace restricts his arm mobility and, he said, was one reason he missed an interception at Buffalo a few weeks ago. He wanted to reach with his left arm but couldn't so instead had to try and snatch the football with only one arm.

Dansby said playing without the brace will be better for him and as evidence he said he had an interception in practice today.

As you know, Dansby had questions about whether Cameron Wake and Jared Odrick should have been in against the New England Patriots late in the game Sunday. I know that Philbin doesn't like being second-guessed publicly. Who does?

But despite being uncomfortable with the topic, Philbin said he did not cover the issue with Dansby today -- the first day the Dolphins reconvened since Dansby's comments.

"I've made my comments in regards to my feelings about the play-time earlier," Philbin said. "There's always decisions that have to be made in a game with regard to who's playing, who's not playing. Those sometimes change in the midst of a game based on a variety of factors. That's done and that's been over with and now it's on to San Francisco."

So, I pressed, did Philbin talk to Dansby about it?

"No," he said under his breath. "Again, I'm going to tell you the focus on mine and our football team is on playing San Francisco."

Fair.

Two things: Philbin did speak with the entire team when Chad Johnson was cut and several players, including Dansby, disagreed with that call. Also, it is possible Philbin will speak with Dansby either later today or later in the week about the topic. It's also possible it doesn't get addressed at all.

The coach clearly wasn't eager to discuss this anymore.

Dansby and Kevin Burnett this week believe there's an opportunity for them to make a lasting impression on the league because they expect comparisons between themselves and San Francisco linebackers Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman.

"Those guys are great, they really are, they do a great job," Dansby said. "So KB and I know this is a chance for us to play our game and show what we can do so people will see how we compare."

If Dansby and Burnett, who have been good contributors, decide a little rivalry with Bowman and Willis is good motivation, then have at it, gentlemen.

----------

Reggie Bush is expecting a hard-nosed game against San Francisco.

"It's going to be a tough game," he said today. "Make no mistake about it, this is probably going to be the most physical game we've played all year to date ... It's going to be a grind-it-out football game. It's going to be one by three points, seven points.

"We're going to have opportunities to make plays this game but it's going to come down to our effort, our ability to execute and how bad we want to win."

Bush went on to say the Dolphins will "have to play an almost near-perfect game to win."

As has been discussed countless times in this cyberspace, Bush is a mismatch against linebackers in the passing game. And yet, the Dolphins don't use him a lot in that role. Bush has only 28 catches on the season -- mostly on check-down passes.

You ever wonder why the Dolphins don't use him more in the passing game? Bush has.

"Yeah, I wonder about it," he said. "But it's not really my decision to make. The tape is there. The proof is there. If they need me to go run routes, I think they know I can do it. I've done it in practice. It's a matter of scheme and how they feel."

fin4,

Thx. My father's tile company did lot of work in Dade/Broward County. Now he's 72yrs old, retired, and enjoys a very plush returement living off of like 40 rental properties located throughout Dade and Broward counties.

YG...WHY YOU POINTED OUT THAT (( 40 RENTAL PROPERTIES )),UNLESS YOU R SELF CENTERED PERSON,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

YOU GOT TO MORE HUMBLE ........

ALOCO,

WHY DO YOU CONTINUE TO LOW RATE THE FL EDUCATION SYSTEM. SEEMS YOU DIDNT DO MUCH UNDER THE MASSACHUSSETTS EDUCATION BEING A HS DROP OUT AND NOW PROFESSIONAL DISH WASHER.

ALOCO, YOU TRULY HAVE NO DIGNITY, NOR DO YOU HAVE ANY SHAME. ONE WHOM IS UNLEARNED HAS NO ROOM TO TALK OF ANYONE'S EDUCATION SYSTEM. NOT EVEN YOUR OWN.

YOURE THE VERY DEFINITION OF NO DIGNITY, NO SHAME.

ALOCO,

I POINTED OUT 40 RENTAL PROPERTIES BECAUSE MY FATHER WORKED HARD AND NOTHING WAS GIVEN TO HIM. UNLIKE YOU HE HAS DIGNITY AND HE HAS SHAME.

(((((((((((((((((((((( 40 RENTAL PROPERTIES ))))))))))))))))))))))


MAY GOD BLESS YOU.........

Dashi, YG, Odin,

Listen up especially YG the real Aloco hasn't been here in a looong time. He wrote purposely like a 5 year old but had this wink wink Court Jester thing going on. Yg you remember the real Aloco about a year ago talking about some job as a chef and suspect he left the blog.

Dashi the Aloco name is the one on here that alot of trolls have used over the years because it was the easiest but the real Aloco would ask you what you had for dinner while bringing up some cooking recipe and things that the A S S clown now using the name forgets I'm telling you know that isn't the same guy who use to have funny fueds with YG when he was DB. Think Breed (YG) this isn't that guy or maybe it is and Maria is shacking up with someone else and he's flipping Hash Browns at Denny's

((((((( 40 RENTAL PROPERTIES ))))))))))))))

FL STYLE......................

ALOCO,

THE FL EDUCATIONS HAS TURNED OUT MANY VERY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE OF VARYING DIFFERENT PROFESSIONS.

NO ONE BLAMES THE MASSUCHUSSETTS EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM THAT YOU TURNED OUT TO BE NOTHING.

ALOCO, I EVEN HAVE A COUSIN THATS NOW A SURGEON AT BOSTON GENERAL. YES, SHE'S FROM THE FL EDUCATION SYSTEM.

Armando

Maybe you should rename the blog to Evertything Gossip Queers?

YG......... THERE'S NO THING ON MA CALLED ,(((((((((( BOSTON GENRAL ))))))))))))))))))..............


PLEASE STOP LYING,,,,,,,,,,,,

fin4,

Hard to tell. The real ALoco could be an assclown at times too.

I will return to my chia pet, a far more worthwhile experience than this blog of dinkwads.

Now he's 72yrs old, retired, and enjoys a very plush returement living off of like 40 rental properties located throughout Dade and Broward counties.

Yesterday's Gone 4Ever! | December 05, 2012 at 07:30 PM

Well I can't deny that either given the original practically started the blog war were everybody went at it like 2 years ago remember even D.Dunphy went off.

I REMEMBER THE TIME ,WHEN FIN4LIFE WAS IN SOUTH AFRICA AND THAT DAY WE TALKED QUITE A BIT ,,,,,

ALOCO,

DONT BE JEALOUS. IM SURE SUCESSFUL RELATIVES ARE IN YOUR FAMILY TREE TOO. YOURE JUST NOT ONE OF THEM. ACCEPT IT, DO SOMETHING ABOUT, OR JUST CONTINUE TO MOVE ON WITH NO DIGNITY OR SHAME.

Not many people realize the MLB is the QB of the DEFENSE! I DO because I AM ME!

YG,

I FEE; BY THE END OF THE NIGHT ,WE WILL BE BACK AT PEACE .................

YOU REMEMBER THAT DAY WHEN KRIS HAD SAID ,YOU TROLL ??

fin4L,

I believe this is the real ALoco. Does drivebye popshots at others and never make a real and intelible football post about anything.

Therefore he can never be held to any standards of the real truth. He has no dignity and has no shame.

ALoco,

Im looking forward not backwards. Backwards is for losers. What matters most is right now. Kris and I are in positive communications right now.

ALoco, you of all people know that if I were a backward visioned person. You and I would never speak again.

Youre right, not only will you and I be ok before night's end. Im ok with you right now. I live in the moment. Even when i press post, a new moment has began.

ALACO I BAK THE FLIPPER BRED AND FIN4LIVE AR RITE HAS MAMA MARIA LEAVE AN CUSE YU NOT GET 100,000 COOCING AND NOW SEL HOTDOGG AT REDSOKS GAMES

ALoco,

I never did well in groups dominated by an alpha personality. Im a very free thinker. No one pulls my bit. Except for when its at a very high rate of pay.

Then I know the humility tops out over pride and shame.

He who follows a crowd also has no dignity or shame. You call it flip flopping. LOL...

YG.......YOU R ONE OF A KIND.
YOU R THE PILLAR OF THIS BLOG,,,,,,,

MAY GOD BLESS YOUR DAD AND FAMILY........

PEACE
PEACE ........LET'S TALK FOOTBALL,,,,,

I REMEMBER THE TIME ,WHEN FIN4LIFE WAS IN SOUTH AFRICA AND THAT DAY WE TALKED QUITE A BIT ,,,,,

ALoco | December 05, 2012 at 07:40 PM

That is the real you, I posted your way at about 6:00 AM EST. and it was 2:00 PM for me. I even remember it was the Chargers game were Henne got hurt last Oct. (was there that whole month) I was there to load a maritime vessel with 33,000 Metric tons of corn for a client of the freight corp. I work for. I travel plenty to load merchandise all over the World but that was hands down the best experience ever and Joburg (Johhanesburg) the Port of Durban and Capetown have nothing to envy the Western World, truly awesome exp.

WHILE WE R AT IT......

MAY GOD BLESS FIN4 LIFE;S FAMILY,HIS LOVED ONES AND HIS BROTHERS AND WONDERFUL SISTERS..............
HIS DA
HIS MOM...BLESS THEM ALL ..........

ONE OF THE MOST HUMBLE PEOPLE ON THIS BLOG.........


FIN4LIFE..........VERY MODEST................

IN THAT DAY YOU WERE IN AWE OF THE PORT OF DURBAN ...........

ANOTHER HUMBLE PERSON IS;;;;;;

DD ,VERY MODEST PERSON ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I GIVE THE FLOOR TO OTHERS TO POST,.....

IN THAT DAY YOU WERE IN AWE OF THE PORT OF DURBAN ...........

ALoco | December 05, 2012 at 08:08 PM


That's right I remember it perfectly we were the only ones on the blog. I remember I was telling you about the Great White tank. Durban is on the Indian Ocean and they have a Water theme amusement park were they had turned the inside of an old Sea Vessel into a large tank were they had 3 six to 7 Foot Great white's. I was always under the impression you couldn't keep them in captivity but those were born in captivity and no mistaking them even in a big tank with their squared up frames and white under belly. I stayed in a Hotel in front of the Ocean but only wet my feet given the ones in there are loose but I'll tell you I was blown away further when I went to Capetown beautiful place and were the stinking rich go to play. So what gives Aloco you've been in a bad mood for sometime.

FIN4LIFE.......... WHEN DASHI COMES AND SAY THINGS AREN'T TRUE ,I GOT TO REACT STRONGLY TO IT TO MAKE MY POINT.....


Se van a cagar en el diablo quando el fulanito de Ireland ase lo mismo and he wont be fired.

El mejor entrenedor en el NFL era Shula Philbin no puede limpiar le el chickle de los zapatos.

well gang the phins are in deep this week headed into California Grizzly Bear country and wont have Jake Long to block him.

Kapernick will decipher the Dolphins nickle defense and leave them gasping for air,Philbin wont need to count how many plays they were in it wont matter.

F4L,

Agreed. We Needed a QB more than a MLB!!

And Dashi Remembers The Pro Day Also! T-Hill Didn't Miss a Pass! And Sherman Didn't Go So he Wouldn't Influence the Decision. And To Try and Show People The Fins Weren't That Interested!

It Didn't Work. The Rumors were Still Running Rapid!

And To U Guys Claiming IF THE FINS DIDN'T DRAFT T-HILL!! HE WOULD'VE DROPPED To The SECOND!! MUST'VE FORGOT ABOUT THIS.

IF DASHI IS NOT MISTAKEN ME AND U TALKED ABOUT THIS AT THE SS! UNDER DASHI'S ONLY OTHER ALIAS!!

WHICH IF DASHI REMEMBERS CORRECTLY U AND A COUPLE OTHERS TOLD ME THAT THE MY NAME USE TO MESS UP MY POST!

WHICH WAS TRUE!! BUT DASHI JUST USED IT TO MAKE TRUTH MY BOTTOM BIATCH!!

Un PEO BIEN FEO FOR TEO!! - LMAO!

Wow that's pretty funny that dansby really believes that him

Dansby will renegoiate his contract with a willing Ireland Ireland says" heck we gotta a lotta cap room might as well spend on the players we have
shoot no need takin chances we are only a couple of acorns away from our goal".

dashi,

Everyone here knows David Decastro was my pick for 1st rd. Just not at 8th overall. I wanted to trade down and get more picks. At least enough spots to pick up another 2nd rd'er.

DeCastro didnt go the Steelers until 24th. Had we traded down to 20th, we still get Decastro and an extra 2nd rd'er, plus an additional 1st rd pick in 2013. Just unfortunate for the Steelers DeCastro got hurt early and is out for the year. But it doesnt mean he would have had the same fate playing for us.

So how great 2 1st rd 2013 picks would have looked right now in addition to what we already have? Plus we would have an extra 2nd rd player on our roster right now had we did what I wanted.

Had To Step Away From The Ignorance The QUEEN JENNY IS/WAS SPEWING!!

NOTICE THE TROLL! I Mean Aloco! Started Going ON HIS IGNORANT RAMBUNCTIOUS TIRADE!! After The Week 6 Comment!

AND LOCA U ARE ONLY OFFENDED BECAUSE IT IS THE TRUTH!!

Just Saying!! GROW UP!!!

=======================================================

And Didn't Mando Say He Was Going To Do Something About This Senseless Behavior?

C'Mon Mando!

=======================================================

And ALOCO IF WHAT U HAVE DONE TODAY IS NOT EXPOSE URSELF!! THEN DASHI DOESN'T KNOW WHAT IS!!

Oh, And Tell Maria To Appoligize For Lackluster Service! She Gave Dashi!!

AT LEAST WITH HER I KNOW THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTION!!

BOTH!!

She Even Blows Bubbles With IT!!

APOLOGIZE ALOCO!! She Sucks!! Literally!! HA!! HA!!

dashi,

Also, with two 1st rd picks for 2013, we could draft a qb and still have a 1st rd pick at another position.

The Dolphins are rebuiding and dont be surprised if its deja vu all over again.

dashi,

Dont take ALoco so serious. He can be jackass one minute, then a honey bear the next.

ALoco and I have our run ins. Then a short while later be ok again. ALoco's cool, he just can be a jackass sometimes. As human beings, we all have those moments. Just we all have to wise enough to this to quickly let go.

Lets say we finish with 8th overall draft spot again. Unless Manti T'eo is there my strategy would be trade down and pick up extra picks again.

Far enough for at least 1 extra 2014 1st rd'er and an extra 2nd.

This way we keep building strongly for the future until our future becomes right now!

YG,

DeCastro Would've Fit A NEED. GOOD TO KNOW THAT SOMEONE HERE KNEW WE NEED GUARDS!!

Most Posters Here Think The O-Line Only Has 3 Players On IT! LT/C/RT!!

They Forget The Importance of a GUARD!

I'M WITH U ON THE KID FROM ALABAMA!!

If We Can't Get Te'o! He is The Only Guy I See On The Offensive Side of the Ball THAT IS A SURE THING!!

Now That Should Be a Trade Down And We can Do What U Said! Get Extra Picks! For 2014!! And Still Be Able To get Womack with The 15-20th Pick!

AGAIN THE IMPORTANCE OF LOSING TO GET A TOP 5 PICK!!

Some Here Have Foolish Pride!! They Would Rather Go 8-8!! And Be Stuck In Mediocrity!!

Than Go 5-11! AND REBUILD THE TEAM!!

This Year is a Evaluation YEAR!! Winning Was NEVER #1 Priority!

I just figure if we're 6-10, get 8th overrall again, if available take T'eo. If not trade far enough down to get an extra 2013 2nd rd pick. Plus an extra 2014 1st rd pick.

Even trading down that far, I believe we'll still have a choice of selecting a good wr, pass rusher, or corner. Plus we'll have 3 2013 2nd rd picks.

Dashi,

Not only did I wand DeCastro 1st rd, I wanted a RT 2nd rd. Ireland got it half right. But we could have had both Decastro and J-Mart. Plus another 2nd rd pick to work with.

Dashi,

Maybe we could have used the extra 2nd rd pick on Russell Wilson. Wouldnt that have been a top of t6he board 2012 draft coup. LOL

Dashi,

Ireland has a great inability to think outside of the box. Inside of the acorn only.

To the earlier posts about trading players... The trade deadline has passed. Jake Long will be a FA regardless of what you want to happen..
Do some of you follow football besides watching the highlites on E S PN

YG,

Water Off My Back!

U know DASHI TAKES NO ONE SERIOUS!!

And To Ur Point!! Me and U have had Disagreements!! And We Still Talk!

Heck, U have Seen Me and Oscar Go At IT! And Dashi Will Still Talk To Him!! Heck, U want Somebody Dashi has Gone Back And Forth With MORE Than Craig M! And Dashi and Craig Still Agree and Talk! As Long as it is Not Dansby or Pass Rushers!!

I'm Just Saying! He Says He Doesn't Troll!! YET HOW MANY TIMES HAS TWINKY(ALOCO) SAY HI TO DASHI?

TO GIVE U A HINT OF ANOTHER ONE OF HIS TROLLS NAME!! "Odin's Bloatted Liver"

THIS GUY IS ASTONISHING!! HE IS THE FAMOUS MONKEY BUOY!! ODIN TALKS ABOUT!!

THE PROBLEM IS ODIN HAS CHILLED OUT AND DONKEY TROLL! Needs Someone TO BEAT HIS MASOCHIST A S S!!

NOTICE HE IS ONLY GOING AFTER THE AGGRESSIVE POSTERS!! Trying To INCITE!! THEM!!

NOTICE WHO HE IS CALLING OUT!!

Anyway, if Ireland allows Long to walk, he needs to find a way to use this draft to get an extra 2014 1st rd draft pick. Thats what a bright gm would do to compensate losing Long for nothing in return.

We still need that 1st rd draft pick back.

dashi,

The troll by any name you wish to call him does the same to everyone, even to me. 99% of the time I just never respond to them. The more you feed them, the bigger they grow.

They dont bother me as much because I place them on the "starvation diet plan".

The Dline of the 49ers are some bad dudes... My old college coach Jim Tomsula is their dline coach and he will have them biting at the bit. If people think Incognito is a bad a s s wait until you see how he gets handled sunday.. I hope not but..

YG @ 9:33

Ok, U answered My Question About The QB!! Good Draft Setup! True!

EVEN THOUGH DASHI IS NOT A BIG RUSSELL WILSON FAN!!

I Would've Went Cousins Or Foles!!

I Liked Cousins PreDraft! Remember before Sherman Came on Board! T-Hill wasn't in Our Sights! And Cousin was a 4 Time CAPTAIN! AND THE GUY IS SMART! He Would've fit the WCO!! PERFECTLY!! Heck! Shanahan Took Him As Insurance for RG3!!
