Cameron Wake is All NFL

The postseason awards are starting to filter in now and at least one Dolphins player is being recognized for a great season:

Cameron Wake.

Wake was today voted to the 2012 All NFL team by Pro Football Weekly and the Professional Football Writers of America. This is deserved as Wake had a career-high 15 sacks in 2012. I am assuming the big award, the All Pro awards by the Associated Press, will also recognize Wake in the coming weeks.

Tell me one person on our roster that Belichick woud take in a trade for Hernandez or Vereen.

I'm going to make broad, encompassing observations about football based on instantenous reactions to whatever is happening in a given moment because, quite frankly, I do not have the mental capacity or spatial reasoning to think much beyond those narrow parameters.

I also think Bon Jovi is ROCKIN' and Budweiser is really good beer!

The Pats are perfect example of how a team uses its pass game to put so much pressure on a defense thier pass game. That they catch you totally off guard with thier run.

You guys talking about how you so much need to run are not taking into consideration that none of these playoff teams are one dimensional. They usually run so well because they can also pass so well with thier weapons at the reciever positions.

In other words there is no one that Belichick would take in a trade for Hernandez with us.

Who on our roster would you not be willing to trade for Aaron Hernandez straight up?
Pouncey & Wake are the only 2 legitimate NFL starters we have currently under contract.

Why in the age of ever increasing technology and intellingence do humans themselves seem to be getting Dumber?

There are many holes to fill on the team and they won't fill them all but we can still improve a lot with FA and the draft. I look forward to those changes as an opportunity to fix some problem positions. Who heard Pouncey say the team needed better leadership and chemistry?

If Jarvis Jones is available when the 12th pick roles around take him. Otherwise, this offseason should be about putting playmakers around Tannehill. If Jones is not there, I would take Warmack.

OL with Warmack would look like this: LT Martin, LG Warmack, C Pouncey, RG Levitre, RT: Rookie (2nd round pick).

Receivers: Welker, Hartline, Bess, Bailey, etc.
TE: Kellar, Ertz, Clay.

The offense would be set in 2014 with everyone signed. Concentrate on Defense in 2014. Hopefully, Vernon works out and becomes a big time pass rusher but we will probably need another pass rusher, a replacement for Misi, and a shut down corner in 2014.

Yes, the one dimensional teams that rely heavily on the passing game are all at home now.

This is totally contrary to the repeated mantra of many on this board who keep repeating "passing league" as if it's part of a required religious ceremony for drones.

Wor4d's Bond,

I nearly guarantee Bellichik would trade Hernandez for Cam Wake. Because he still would have Gronk. LOL...

Take away Brady's 6 seconds to throw, and give him 3 seconds to throw, and he looks as crappy as everyone else.
I know let's bring in an O-Line coach to run things.

YG,
I'll give you Wake.
I'll throw in Pouncey.
Summation: we have 2 guys under contract, Wake and Pouncey, that are as good as Aaron Hernandez the backup TE on NE. The other 35 players under contract are not as good.
Wonderful.
If I were the agent of an NFL player I would recommend that he sign here for less than he could get from winning organization.

Mid-January in the Northeast and people are outside in windbreakers and light sweaters.

No, nothing odd happening at all.

If it's going to be this warm in January in the Northeast than the remaining white people in Miami wil move back where they came from and they will take all of the crime, poverty, grafitti, loud music, desperation and paint buckets full of mismatched tools with them.
They will leave all of the money here.

The total miscnception amongst dolfans is the early 70's team was 3yard and a cloud of dust only. That far from true. All you need do is look at all of the weapons on offense they had. That offense could be successful in todays era.

WEith that team it was, "pick your poison". You couldnt stop one thing without opening up the other. Teams just choose to have us slowly kill them on the ground than quick strikes with Warfield and company thru the air.

Poor Sparano. He is back to where he started, looking for an Offensive Line Coaching position. From being an NFL HC, to OC, back to OL coach. That is where he probably belongs. Parcells is so obsessed with picking up linemen that he hired an OL coach to be the HC to ensure the team would be built as he likes it. At least Sparano was able to make some good $$ and now it is back to reality.


YG - Major AssWipe

Why people continue to engage the likes of him and a few others here is beyond me.

YG is only here to pontificate from his self perceived lofty position but if you follow him he is nothing but an arrogant, ignorant dufus.

Half of you suffer from self esteem issues and want to be liked by YG DB FOOL, and he only laughs in your face.

Protect your dignity.

Matt Schaub is so over rated. They may be looking for a QB soon in Housto.

Stick a fork in them. This game is over!

Brady was great when he only had 2 seconds to throw.

YG,
That was 40 years ago.
40 years ago Jews were moving TO Miami.
40 years ago Kissemmee was a mosquito ridden swamp with a couple single-wides thrown hither and yon.
40 years ago it was not common knowledge throughout the world what a trashy, skanky place Florida is (only the people who lived there knew it).

Actually Watching The Game,

Its also scary here reading post from guys saying what this team needs. While also seeing posts proving they havent a clue of what they're watching thats happening right before thier very eyes.

It is a shame the Broncos broke down. They were the only ones that could have stopped the Pats. The Ravens haven't got a chance. NE has been far more dominant for more time than the fins ever were.

I gradually have become totally in awe of the Patriots O(I do not become "in awe" easily). If the Texans pass rush cannot get to Brady, then nobody can. I guess, the only way to beat NE is to outscore them.

Warfield was an all-timer, no question, but Miami really WAS overwhelmingly run-oriented in that era.

Take a look at the 73 playoff stats sometime, when the Dolphins were at their very apex of domination.

In the AFC Championship and Super Bowl 8 COMBINED Griese attempted something like 16 passes.

Then again, why not? Nobody could stop that rushing attack and it just chewed yards and clock at will.

The Pats Dynasty is by far the longest and most extensive in NFL history.

This is true. I recently moved back here after many years of being away.

The only positive here is that the girlie bars are far more wild and lenient than in most states. Some of them even have private rooms you can invite the girls into. In a pinch, you can sample some very fine young girls for the cheap 3rd world price from where they came from.

"Poor Sparano?" He's still more involved with football and a lot wealthier than any of us are or ever will be.

Swamper,
Now you're talking!

The Cleveland Browns of the 1940's and 50's had a longer run of sustained dominance than the Pats or anyone else has accomplished.

If you want to just say "modern era" the Pats are right there with the old Niners--but not surpassed iot (yet).

Posted by: Actually Watching The Games | January 13, 2013 at 06:59 PM

When going back to early 70's Dolphins sb wins. There was no urgency to pass. The skins offense scored zero points and the Vikings offense scored only 7. The only need to pass to keep the chains moving when needed.

Still, when you back to both games, we did have td passes thru the air.

Good point about Niners.
And Niners did it with Montana and Young (the descendent of Brigham Young).

I dont think the Texans will ever sniff the sb as long as Shaub is still qb.

The truth of the matter is that Bob Greise was not the last great Phins QB.
Bob Greise was the ONLY great Phins QB.
All the others have either been short-term jerkoffs or long-term jerkoffs.
And speaking of jerking off remember those Isotoner Glove commercials from the '80s with Big Dan 13?

The only question left about this game is, "will the Pats crack 40pts?"

I dont think the Dolphins will ever sniff the playoffs as long as Tannehill is still qb.

As I and YG have pointed out(even if hes being a pain in the assss today, probably lost some $), Belichick, being the great Coach he is, has created and impenetrable OL. Nate Solder is 6'9", the other guy 6'7" and the interior linemen great. You give Brady that much Time, you will have to outscore him , not an easy task either.

Everyone Brady touches turns to gold. Where does Belichik find these guys? We struggle to find offensive play makers and it seems like he finds a couple every year. Woodhead, Vereen, Hernandez, and the list goes on and on. Why can't we ever get these guys? Where did they find Vereen? I am sure we could have had that guy too.

Everything Irescum touches turns to shyt.

Ever notice how whenpeople talk about the QB class of '83 they act as if Marino, Esiason, Young, Kelly & Elway all had equal carrers.
Young and Elway won multiple SBs each.
Kelly went to 4 Super Bowls.
The only one Marino was equal to is Esiason because they both lost one SB in an otherwise long jerkoff of a career.
I mean seriously even Tarkenton had the decency to spread his jerking off over a couple different fan bases.

Texans can beat the low end of teams just fine and every now and then pull out one game against good competition in the regular season but they are COMPLETE frauds when it comes to the playoffs...destroyed by the pats twice in 4 week span....so much for Wade Phillips being that absolute defensive GEM everybody in the league praised him to be//

WADE PHILLIPS BIGGEST WEAKNESS = HURRY UP OFFENSE AND QUICK PASSES

Posted by: Orlando Dolphan | January 13, 2013 at 07:12 PM

This is exactly why it scares hell out me when you suggest what are urgent team needs are. Were you a baby when Brady 1st came into the league?

He's only been in the league 10 seasons running the same offense for the same hc. f a qb is any good, at somepoint he begins to perfect that system. DUhhh.................

OD,
In order to be on the Pats you have to be able to pass protect.
Everyone pass protects and that is why Brady always has 6 seconds and every skill player ends up one on one eventually.
Matt Cassell had the same success the season that 10 players pass protected.
Ryan Mallett will have the same success as long as the system stays the same.

Neither Esiason or Young were part of the QB class of '83.

Orlando,

Also when a qb as good as Brady has been running the same offense for 10 season, they developing many variations of the same exact thing. Making it even tougher to defend.

So you can plug in different personnel to do things the defense doesnt expect.

But when changing gm's hc's, offenses, and qb's every 3yrs like we've been doing the last past decade. WTH do you expect?

Why do you need to write under so many different names, YG? Everybody here knows it's you when you become insulting. My advice, when you're mad, do not take it out on the Blog, hammer the head of your dikkkk or something(anger management).

Its the scheme NE puts on teams every week...they line up TE'S and RBS as an outside reciever thus providing more options and more problems for DC's, then they have to pull safetys and LB's to cover...Bradys great but its the quick snaps and quick throws that have the Pats showing more success then throwing the deep ball today...

Anyway I gotta go work on FarCry3, so later.

Not only does Tom Brady know his offense inside and out. He knows every "variation of his offense" that's been added the 10 season he's been there inside and out too.

Every year the Pats seem to add a slightly different variation to thie previosly existing offense. Why do you guys think its so difficult for nfl dc's to keep up with them?

YG your point?

Most posters here want to get rid of HC and the GM after 1 or 2 seasons. I am the one that has been preaching continuity with Ireland and Philbin.

BTW- Brady has been good ever since he came in the league. In fact, I beleive his SB wins were early in his career. So he has always been great.

We have to carefully watch the young HC Jim Harbaugh in his approach in the SB of how to beat the NE Patriots.

PLEASE HONOR AND OBEY MR. JAPAN AND LADY FISHBALL OF WEEKI WACHEE, FLORIDA!

I SHALL DRAW PICTURES OF THE 'DENNY'S' RESTAURANT LOGO ON YOUR TONGUES WITH MAGIC MARKERS.

RUB MELON RINDS AND PAPRIKA ON A WILDEBEAST TOMORROW FOR A LIFE OF PROSPERITY!!

Bellichik just seems to always have a plan for why he's bringing in a certain player before he brings them in. We kind of just bring in players and then hope for the best.

Big difference.

It be nice if miami would try and adapt a patriot philosphy style of offense in the offseason, unfortunatly miami just doesnt know how to equip the right offensive talent. Hartline would never be as effective a reciever in NE's style of play, he's not a scorer and he sure as hell wont break tackles on screen passes. Bess is a backwards runner more than a foward progress gainer when he cacthes the ball, and people wonder why miami doesnt go all "freak out mode" in resigning non playmakers quickly??!!

I see it still free popcorn for idiots day here. Uhh.. Oscar? LOL...

Belecheat is great, but Tom Coughlin is better since the giants have owned NE in two SB's. Maybe miami needs to study Gmen's style of play more than NE's.

Hartline is precisely the kind of player Belichick would sign. Smart, tough, and an intelligent route runner despite not having blazing speed.

He's a very good player, if not a true #1 wideout--which obviously Miami still needs.

The Pats offense is so damn good because TOM BRADY is so damn good. There are not 10 Pro Bowlers playing with him, you know.
