Dolphins take flyer on QB Aaron Corp

Aaron Corp is not what I'd call a buyer. You know, the athletes that get signed by a team and because they know they're going to be around for a few years they put down roots and buy a home.

Corps is a barely a renter, actually.

He played for two colleges -- USC first before transferring to Richmond.

He was signed in 2012 by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent. Then he was cut a month later. Then the Bills signed him in in February of this year. Then he was cut April 29.

Then the Dallas Cowboys signed him May 7. Then the Cowboys cut him May 9.

Today, according to thesidelineview.com, Corp agreed to a one-year contract with the Dolphins.

Corp, who is 6-4 and 220 pounds, will be given a chance to compete with Pat Devlin for the No. 3 QB job in Miami. That's the company line.

The truth?

He better show promise in the OTAs and June minicamp because his stay is not promised even until the start of training camp. If he does make it to training camp, I see him as a camp arm. Three quarterbacks cannot handle all the duties and throws of training camp.

He definitely isn't in a position to buy, just yet.

The Dolphins cut long snapper Patrick Scales to make room on the roster for Corp. One assumes Scales was also renting.

Funny Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Took YG's Word For His Math. Apparently He Doesn’t Know How To Divide.

1152yds/13 games =88.6ypg

Back To The Drawing Board.

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

YG, is this true?

I'm staying out of the fight. But I ask because I used your info on making some "Miller vs. Gillislee vs. Lacey" comparison posts.

Honest mistakes are honest mistakes. Please clarify YG.

I'll be double checking myself, but I'm a little busy right now. I have some people here working on the New Pool.......unnnnnnnngh!

A back can go only as far as the Oline will allow, in most cases. Obviously really special players can make their own. But get an OL system rolling like Shanahan has and does...and well, at that point it is plug and play for the most part and most any of our RBs would be perfectly sufficient.

You know what? You're correct. I guess my handheld calculator needs a battery change. Just did the same math with my comp calc and got the same number as you did.

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

Sorry YG, I posted before I read this one.

It's all good........I think-lol!

DD,

Actually, the only thing That I saw that Jordan does better than Lebron is his ball handle.

Remember the Jordan slam on Ewing? Jordan did a handle I've never seen anyone do, crossing Oakley up on the baseline, then slam right on top of Ewing.

The one thing I don't think Jordan gets enough credit for, is his dribbling. That's what set up so many of his great moves. His quickness was 2nd to none either.

Jordan combined great dribbling, quickness, scoring prowess, athleticism, and basketball IQ, to become the best in the game. Still, just like Lebron, Jordan wasn't able to win championship rings until great talent was placed around him. Scotty Pippen was an NBA superstar too.

Ross and Ireland have no clue how to run a successful franchise. Its just one mistake after another after another.

YG,

The SEC Is The Best Conference In College Football. But The ACC Is The 2nd Best Conference.

L. Miller Gained More Yards In 2 Seasons Than Gillislee Gained In 4.

L.Miller Is A Speed Back In The Mold Of Clinton Portis, Not In The R. Bush Mold.

L. Miller Is A One Cut Runner Who Has The Speed To Outrun Anyone On The Field.

L. Miller Is M. Wallace Fast As A RB.

Look At A L. Miller Tape. He Doesn't Have Negative Runs, He Doesn't Fumble. And I Have Seen Him Outrun Guys That Were 5-7yds In Front Of Him.

L. Miller Doesn't Get Caught From Behind Or By Someone Running Next To Him.

Gillislee Is Similar To Miller But He Lacks That Extra Gear.

They Both Can Run Inside Or Out And Don't Dance Behind The Line. The Difference Is L. Miller Can Break A 80Yard Run.

Reason L. Miller Had As Many 20yd Runs As D.Thomas In Half The Carries.

He Makes Up Distance Quicker Than Most.

That's all..In the best case scenario Gillislee is a piece of the puzzle..A part to the whole of the running back group.

Darryl, with all due respect, I think you're being a little unfair in **THIS PARTICULAR** reply to Dashi.

I don't think you're doing it on purpose either.

They were fighting back and forth and YG was actually the one using THIS stat line AGAINST Dashi. It was a BIG part of YG's argument.

For the record, I think they both went a little overboard with their debate(as evidenced by this, the latest-LOL). But I won't argue with, nor condemn either of them for a passionate argument about: **OUR PHINS**.

T sizzle 2013 season stats prediction:
4250 YARDs
24 TDs

Playoff birth.

Ban wagon jumpers...reserve your seats now.

A great RB or a great QB doesnt always need a great OL. Barry Sanders, Walter Peyton. O J Simpson were great without great OL's. Brady and Peyton Manning havent had great OL's either. The mediocre players need a great OL.

Now, Lebron's basketball IQ itself may aspire to levels that Jordan's didn't.

Lebron and Jordan are as different as they are similar. Lebron, imo, is a little Bird, Magic, Jordan, and Shaq, all rolled into 1 body.

Also, since having Ray Allen work with him on his free throw shooting a couple weeks ago, James is shooting n absolute horridly high percentage in the last few games of the playoffs.

This is risen his game to another level, just free throw percentage alone. Like Lebron really needed to raise his game any higher.

Now that he's now getting the jist of free throw shooting, I believe we'll begin to see James trying to get to the line far more often.

Corp beat out Barkley at USC nad now he will beat out Tannereach at Fins camp.LMAO

Shula just because a player is not GREAT does not mean they are mediocre. You just listed some of the 5 BEST football players to EVER strap on laces. They are the exception...not the rule.

Odin defending Dooshy. Hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!

Ghey?

Dashi,

Look, Im so tired of this rb debate. Move on, Let the season decide it. It's going to take far more than a debate about rb's to decide this team's 2013 fortunes.

So, much more will play into how effective our run game will be. Most of all, the "Mike Wallace", Tannehill's sophomore season. Neither Miller, nor Gillislee are franchise "A-Pete" franchise caliber rb's.

So, can you please, give it a damn rest until we see what the season says of it? I'm a dolfan, Im rooting for the best from both. I give a damn less who is better, as long as both can perform great. Let this debate go!

Jack, I'm not sure what you are saying. My point is that great players dont need great OL's.

"Mike Wallace effect"

**POST OF THE DAY**
====================

I just hope that the "Mike Wallace effect" give both the greatest opportunity to achieve this very elusive beast called greatness.

The entire post was GREAT YG, it sums up my feelings on the whole situation PERFECTLY.

Most importantly, regardless of who is the better back, I think together they make they'll make the Dolphins a Better Team.

Any word out there on Egnew since the start of the offseason programs?
And no I don't need "he sucks" or "BUST" from the Firleand crowd...
But I am sure I will get it anyway...

lol

All I am saying Shula is you can't build a team with the expectation that you are going to have a HOF RB or QB in the backfield. That you can have just GOOD player back there with a GOOD line and accomplish the same thing as a team.
And that just because a player is not a future HOFer does not mean they are simply mediocre. If that helps at all.

Egnew wont make the roster this season. Thanks Irescum.

Posted by: Shula 72 | May 16, 2013 at 01:35 PM


Not just a lie, but, a damn lie!

Barry Sanders probably runs for 2,000yds every season with one. Sanders would run for about 30-40yds every game, then pop 1 big run, then you read the stat line and say wow! Sanders had a big day, when really he didn't, he just had 1 big run that day.

I saw many games when Sanders had to run for 60yds behind the line of scrimmage, to get a 5yd gain. Image if he almost never had to do this?

right on que @ 1:40
good job buddy

Jordan Had A Better Coach That Created and Cultivated The Killer Instinct.

Jordan Was A Better Post Player.

Jordan Also Did One Thing NBA Players No Longer Do. GRIP THE BALL WITH 1 HAND!

Jordan Was A Way Better Free Throw Shooter. That Was An Easy 8-10pts a Game For MJ.

LeBron Is The Superior Athlete. Jordan Was The Better Basketball Player.

When Is LeBron Going To Ever Stand Up For Himself? And Spo Isn't Going To Stand Up For Him. Or Defend Him Against The Refs.

LeBron Needs A Doc River Or A P. Jackson Type Coach. A Guy That Adds That Little Mean Streak LeBron Doesn't Have.

Til LeBron James Grows A Pair He Will Be 2nd Best In My Book.

He Should've Wrapped Up Little Nate And Took Him Down With Him. When Nate Flagrantly Fouled Him In The Face.

That Is Unwritten Rule #1 In Basketball. You Can Foul All You Want Just Not The Face. You Hit Me In The Face Be Prepared For Repercussions! Instant Repercussions If It Was Me.

Anyone Who Saw The Game. Saw When That Happened N. Cole And D. Wade Get Angry For LeBron And Close The Game. And LeBron Ran To The Bench Like A Punk.

Hit Someone In The Face Intentionally And See What Happens. Hit Shaq In The Face. Heck Hit Kobe In The Face. Those Are Grounds To Fight. Or To Stand Up For Yourself.

Teams Know LeBron Or Spo Won't Do Nothing If You Hit LeBron. Even In The Face.

But Teams Also Know That You Can't Hit Wade In The Face. Cause Wade Will Stand Up For Himself And Check You. Like A Man.

LeBron Le Falta Bollas!

Barry Sanders was great with any OL.

Shula,

Barry Was Great With No O-Line.

You Couldn't Tackle Barry In A Phone Booth.

No One Ever Got A Clear Shot On Him.

Odin defending Dooshy. Hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!

You're obviously Trolling and NOBODY cares Jack Shyt about your misinterprtations-LOL.

I followed their argumrnt from it's inception. You may or may not have like it or the way they went about it. But it was a "Good One".

They both made some very good points and I learned quite a bit........from BOTH.

That, for the record, is why I questioned any of the stats and/or the points they made. Unlike you, I was garnering more information of which I use to make my informed opinions and posts.

Thank You Very Much and Do Try Again!!!!


Odin,

Like I Told YG Earlier. That Stat Even Had Me Convinced.

I Also Agree With YG. We Beat That Discussion Up Like If It Was The Chicago Bulls. Now It Is Time For The Race To Start And Us To Watch Our Horses.

One Last Thing. L. Miller Does Have The Potential To Be A Franchise Back.

He Reaffirmed It By Following Up On My Prediction For This Season. With A Even Bigger One Of His Own.

L. Miller Will Run For 1200+yds. Book It. If He Doesn’t I Will Accept The Wrath From Everyone.

Yes, He Reaffirmed It. While D. Thomas Is Talking About Beating Out L. Miller. L. Miller Is Thinking About Reaching Personal Goals. And Training With All pro RBs.

Any word out there on Egnew since the start of the offseason programs?
And no I don't need "he sucks" or "BUST" from the Firleand crowd...

Posted by: Jack! | May 16, 2013 at 01:37 PM
===========================================

Jack, I don't think we'll hear anything about Egnew for now.

He's got great prototypical size, he's in great shape, he's been working and studying hard.

Of course we knew all this last year. We won't hear anything on Egnew until camp when he starts making plays in the 7 on 7's or the 11 on 11's.

Having said that, if we hear **ANYTHING AT ALL** about Egnew it will be good news. Because unless he REALLY impresses, all we're going to be hearing about is Dustin Keller "Picking Up" the offense and Dion Sims "Turning Heads" as a rookie.

Egnew had it tough last year(supposedly-LOL), and it's going to be EVEN TOUGHER this year.

(Can you HEAR ME........Jack? Jack? Jack........can you HEAR ME?)

Posted by: Jack! | May 16, 2013 at 01:42 PM


Another great example of great runners do need great olines, is right here in Miami, with Larry Csonka.

Csonka's hof career was made here in Miami, and here in Miami alone. He ran behind arguably the greatest oline in nflhistory here.

Csonka went to the WFL, and all of a sudden, went from sugar to s'hit. The WFL would fold and Csonka would become a NY Giant. Again, not even close to effects he had behind one of the greatest olines in nfl history.

Unquestionably, had it not been for the great early 70's oline, only way Csonka gets into the hof is with a "VISITORS" pass.

Some folks are way too paranoid and try way too hard.

right on que @ 1:40
good job buddy

Posted by: Jack! | May 16, 2013 at 01:42 PM

Is YG complimenting himself?

or

Is jack coming on to himself?

Hard to tell sometimes.LOL.

Here's the great thing about should Egnew have a breakout year:

1. 2 TE sets with he and Keller. That could rival Gronk and Hernandez. But before you say it, no tE is as good as Gronk alone.

2. 3rd and short, the 2 TE set could be Keller/Egnew and Dion Sims. This way you still have great playaction threat even on 3rd and short with two pass catch threat TE's. Sims also gives the threat to actually run the ball with his blocking abilities.

We Know @2:03
Wasn't directed towards YG at all actually there bud...
Nice try though, god knows you give it youre all.

Titties!

Yes, He Reaffirmed It. While D. Thomas Is Talking About Beating Out L. Miller. L. Miller Is Thinking About Reaching Personal Goals. And Training With All pro RBs.

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

Dashi, I believe Miller has all the skills necessary for a 1200 yard season. Provided Martin(or SOMEONE)works out at Left Tackle, I believe we have the O-Line to get him there.

As YG like to point out, Wallace will petty much prevent teams from stacking the box against Miller.

Having said that though, I think it will all come down to **CIRCUMSTANCE**. It will depend on if Sherman's passes to set up the run or vice versa(though Miller could hit 1200 in both these scenario's).

It will also come down to if we're playing with a lead or coming from behind.

I know I'm stating the obvious, but I said all that to say this: I believe we'll have the O-Line and TWO Running Backs that'll have the Talents and skill to reach 1200 yards.

I'm not saying BOTH **WILL*. But I think both will be capable. Most likely, in **MY** Opinion, it'll be Miller!

If Egnew really has improved, Charles Clay's best chance to make the roster may be at the fb position. It would be nice if he could be a great enough blocker to lead our rb's into the hole. While also being able to slip out for passes, picking up 10-29yds a clip with his speed.

Thing I love best about Philbin, he's neither overly committed to run or pass. He seems to be more about what's working best that day.

Whatever the defense defends least, is what Philbin will give them the most of.

Philbin seems to be more of an "exploit the opponent's greatest weakness" ball coach. I like this better than a hc who is either run first, or pass first, philosophy alone.

Philbin seems to believe he needs both the run and pass game to be strong. Not to be overly heavy handed in just one area.

Sims also gives the threat to actually run the ball with his blocking abilities.

Posted by: Yesterday's Gone 4Ever! | May 16, 2013 at 02:10 PM
=================

I like the thought process here YG. But I still think you're not giving Sims enough credit as a Receiver.

He was a better receiver at MSU than a Blocker. He worked hard on his blocking and improved enough to be considered one of the better "AllAround" Tight End Prospects.

Having said that, I think Sims will present an excellent Receiver combination in your scenario above.

YG
That is something I would really like to see Clay doing this year and in the future. I just don't know if he has the KAHONIES to stick his nose in there like that for the RB.
But if so, he could sneak out in the flat and bounce em for 20 all year long.

Odin,

Reread my post, I did credit Sims as a receiver. You missed something. LOL...

I said in 3rd and short, Sims and Keller/Egnew, allows for "playaction passing" threat. That included Sims pass catch ability.

I also would like to see Yeatman in on goal line situations as a receiver eligible tackle.
