Quick look at the Dolphins’ 53, as of June 17

Hey friends-

It’s Adam Beasley. As Armando mentioned last week, he’s on vacation, and so a few of us will post updates to his blog, as events warrant. It’s a quiet week at Dolphins camp; the only players left in town are the rookies, who have one final week of workouts before they disperse for the summer.

But with training camp literally a month away, it’s never too early to start thinking about which 53 players will be on the roster when the season kicks off in Cleveland Sept. 8. Here’s my first, very rough, take. The good news for the Dolphins: This isn’t easy. There will be several good football players who don’t make the team this year, and – unless there are a string of catastrophic injuries – you won’t see the team pick through the waiver wire castoffs to the degree it did in 2012.

As a disclaimer, this is based on what we’ve seen thus far (which, in shorts and jerseys, hasn’t been much).

We should try putting the Birdman on Green. Also for any free throw the Birdman should turn 90 degrees and stare at the guy next to him to really mess with him like Rodman did.

So yG destroys yesterday's blog, gets up at noon, destroys this afternoon's conversation. What a champ.

Why should the Herald pay a writer to host a football blog so you jerks can talk about your perverted fantasies and talk bad about each other's mother.

What a waste of time, money and internet space.

Just sayin.................

This is why trash shouldn't be allowed to blog. Please sign my petition for No More Internet in the Trailer Parks or NMITP for short. Do it for a better tomorrow people!

The only crime worse than allowing these people to reproduce is allowing them to spew their crap to the masses. Lets take a stand against them!

MOvement afoot to ban the classless YG. I've never seen a more worthy cause.

Fukk Armando, fukk Omar, fukk Ben(oh, he's not here anymore). None of them are indispensable in a Blog. WE are.

Some supporters of continuing the allowance of Internet in the Trailer Parks and Ghettos of this great nation claim that these people benefit by having more access to information. Nothing could be further from the truth! Their minds are too closed to think freely and listen openly to the opinions and values of others.

Studies show that aside from ruining blogs, they spend most of their time looking up old Jerry Springer episodes and street fights on YouTube!

Lets all do the right thing and sign this petition!

@ 3:45 is 100% true

BANE I AGREE WITH YOU MAN THIS IS A 10-WIN TEAM BARRING ANY MAJOR INJURIES BUT MY MAIN CONCERN IS THE SCHEDULE IS LOADED THE 1ST 5 GAMES WITH 3 ON THE ROAD. WE CANNOT AFFORD TO START 1-4 OR 0-5 WITH BOTH THOSE BEING POSSIBLE. IF THE TEAM CAN GO 3-2 OR 4-1 THEN WATCH OUT. I ACTUALLY SEE IT GOING 1. CLEVELAND W 2 COLTS W 3.FALCONS W (THAT'S RIGHT) 4.SAINTS L RAVENS W. THAT'S 4-1 ENTERING THE BYE WEEK. THE REASON I SAID VICTORY OVER THE FALCONS IS THAT THEY(FALCONS) HAVE ONLY WON IN MIAMI WHAT? ONCE/TWICE IN THEIR HISTORY ! I LIKE THE FINS IN THE HOME OPENER. 10-6 OR 11-5 YES! GO FINS !!

For the life of me, I can't understand the Heat's Coaching strategy. At the same time, I'm not Pat Riley.

The strategy is to lose the finals in 6. Watch as it comes to fruition.

You mean it will be on purpose, Jack!?

Mando Is Laid off 2 Months Out The Year. He Is Overpaid The Other 10.

It Isn't That The Herald Is Racist. It Is Mando Doesn't Diversify. Mando Is No Barry Jackson Or Greg Cote. He Isn't Even Linda Robertson. Don't Take Mando Out Of His Comfort Level.

Oscar,

Have You Noticed The Problem Isn't The Heat Players, But The Heat Head Coach Is The Problem.

The Heat Are Highly Inconsistent. Only 1 Person To Blame For That.

Papovich is a much better coach than Spo!

Nah, Spo is better.

You are talking oranges, I'm talking apples. Spoelstra is only the in-Game Coach. I am more than certain that Pat Riley is the chief architect of the strategy to be used in the upcoming Game. So you think Riley is going to throw this Game and Championship away? You don't know him.

oscar u are talkin nonsense

Ha!, you didn't know that, 17-0? Everybody knows it.

Any Self Respecting Coach Will Not Allow Someone Else To Make The Decisions.

The Heat Head Coach Reminds Me Of Another Puppet Coach That Was Around Here. Same Abbr. and Everything.

The Heats Problem Is In Game. They Have The Most Talented Team In The NBA. Riley Did His Job As GM.

Only Thing Riley Didn't Do Was Find A Better Coach for The Talent At Hand.

Spoelstra is the best coach in the NBA.

Who else will be experimenting with heroin tonight?

They have the most talented PLAYER in the NBA, and he is more talented by a sight. But most talentd "TEAM"... No way.

Jordan will be a DE not an OLB! He may move around in exotic rush packages but contrary to what odinseye thinks (may need a monocle) Jordan is a DE. If we still played a 4-3 then I would agree with the OLB comments. But in the 4-3 he's an end and misi is the other OLB. coyle loves misi. I can also say that odrick will be staying inside. This is stark's last year here. Unless he takes a major pay cut, which he won't.

I got the 3-4 backwards. How about an edit button? This is about the only forum that doesn't have one! Annoying!

The Dolphins are total garbage. 5th consecutive losing season coming up.

This newspaper has one employee of the proud Cubano race.
His name is Armando.
Every year the paper looks to save $3000 so they lay Mando off for 2 months and let everyone else keep working.
Now for 2 months Mando must collect unemployment and hide from his landlord.
It would be more fair to furlough each employee for 1 week with no pay on a rotating basis.
That way the sacrifice would be spread out evenly regardless of race, origin or ethnicity.
Many people feel the current system discriminates against Mando.

I'm ready.

Blow for blow. I love it.

C'mon cut down on the commercials. Let us see basketball.

This game is like a pro team vs a college team.

If Lebron cannot get Miami past SA then how is Tanne supposed to get the Phins past Atl, NO, Bal, Indy in first 5 games?

yall posters sure know how to ruin a blog. quit acting like little kids

I know it now, so early. We're going to win.

stupidest post all day .. You win the idiot reward of the day

Tannehill = Henne

If Mando Only Gets Paid $1500 A Month. He Needs To Find Another Job. Even For His Garbage Work. That Is Still Grossly Underpaid For A Journalist.

The Pats Are Done And I Am Loving Every Minute. Where Is That Gaytor Clown Now?

then that would mean that a snail could beat and is better than the spurs ..LOL

I've had many privileges in my Life. This Game was another one of them.

Beginning to acquire some respect for Erik Spoelstra. That was a GREAT timeout he called in the 4th Qt. Some big balls to sit down Wade until 3:48 left in the Game. My respects, Sir.
