Dolphins' battles looming

Camp starts in a week - on Sunday, July 21 - and several interesting position battles loom.

 

Barry Jackson checking in again, with a link to my column on that topic:

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/sports-buzz/

I'll post a couple more of my Dolphins columns in this space later this week before Armando returns.

Follow us on Twitter at @ArmandoSalguero and me at @flasportsbuzz.

Have a good week. Good news: Just seven more days until continuous football until early February.

oscar, try match.com instead of facebook

C'mon Barry, leave Armando with some readers when he gets back

Barry Jackson's reporting confirms what a few of the good posters here have already been saying.

Jordan will be playing OLB on early downs if he can beat out Misi.

Dion Sims quickly passed up Clay and has all but locked up the no. 2 TE job.

Louis has a better than 50/50 chance of beating out Jerry.

Devlin does have potential, but he'll have to make the most of what little chance he gets.

Say what you want about Odin and/or Fin4life. So far they've been on the money.

Great write uo

*up !!

Tis is the most lesbian intensive Dolphins blog I have ever seen.

You gals are top-shelf!

I hope Tannehill can utilize Dustin Keller effectively. He (Keller) can be the lynchpin to turning this into an explosive and hard-to-stop offense. Tannehill needs to get comfortable with both him and Wallace (and not just Hartline and Binns).

There are going to be some interesting cuts this year for sure. The team is busting at the seams with talent. It's a shame we won't see these guys on hard knocks. Finally the end of offseason and who knows Mando may write something for his blog sometime soon.

DC is back stating the utter obvious.

And the RB's need to bust through holes into the second level.

And the defense needs to pressure the qb quickly and get sacks.

And special teams needs to make some plays.

And we need to do a better job on 3 and short.

What a dullard,

PFT PRESEASON POWER RANKINGS NO. 23: MIAMI DOLPHINS

Read that and it will put a chill on your hopes this season.

Dolphins will be a playoff team this year can't wait for the season to start

Florida is celebrating the right decision to free Zim
*
Martin was a hoodlum
*
Martin attacked an innocent man, AGAIN and this time
Zim just short of being murdered
Stood His Ground
Shot & Killed the Hoodlum POS
*
Excellent Jobby Zim defending himself b4 his brains where splattered by the POS Punk
*
Proud to be a Floridian!

That guy would have only led a life in crime and gotten a bunch of nappy ho's on welfare pregnant.

Good riddance.

According to mr. Jackson.....Daniel Thomas is handing gillislee his @ss....

That's either great for us FIN FANS because Thomas finally gets it.....or it's really sad be because Thomas just sucks less than the completion.....we could be one Miller pulled hammy away from a struggling running game.....

Ireland needs to address his when teams start cutting....

His=this....

Kris,

Didn't you say only yesterday all was roses and rainbows?
Yet now you take on the most pessimistic angle to the report on Thomas.

Go figure.

Thomas looked great last year when healthy. Let's not confuse the issue. Getting injured doesn't mean he sucks, it means it sucks he's getting injured. So far he looks better than the couple of rb's taken ahead of him.

Actually 2015....

I gave 2 possible scenarios....

But you blog about the one that fits your agenda best.....ok.....

It's BECOMMING evidently clear that you are not interested in football conversation....but rather just arguing....

It would appear that the others that responded to you very harshly had you pegged right.....and me....I gave you the benifit of the doubt.....

Go figure....

Who are these running backs 2015.....

Please name.....

Most People that call themselves atheists really mean agnostics. Up to now nobody has been able to scientifically prove if God exists or not. Rene Descartes tried to prove God's existence in his Discourse on Method but he wasn't as successful in that area as in his I think therefore I am, probably due to constraints of his Time and Place. But, his approach was the correct one. Probably the only way we can conclusively prove if God exists or not is thru our reasoning, our thought, as God, if he is a being , is probably also made up of thought and reasoning. This task should be easier(or perhaps obvious) in this Day and Place.

NAACP is a racist organization that needs to be abolished

Dont think just cuz your black
U can jump someone, punch their face in, break their nose and smash their skull repeatedly into concrete and get away with it
*
The black punk doing this got what he deserved
He was shot dead
*
Thankfully!
If the person committing the violent crime was Hispanic, Chinese, White or Russian then they should also be shot dead
*
Enuf w the blacks being racist!
The punk was a criminal trying to kill Zim as proven in a court of law
*
Zim should have NEVER been charged and everyone in the community should have congratulated him and given him a medal!
*

Kris, take your own advice (that you've expressed many times here). 2015, Amoeba, etc. It's all the troll we all know (please go Home) who's had a horrible month off from trolling, and now needs to make up for lost time.

Save your breath and talk football to other posters that are here to talk football.

Kris, I think we know what Thomas is, or better yet, what he' not (game changer). Let's hope Gillislee grows in his position. Not that I don't like Thomas, I think he'll be a good change-of-pace guy from Miller, but honestly, I doubt he plays much of a factor to win or lose 1 game by himself.

Kris

It was you that responded in disagreement to me yesterday, telling me all was roses in your eyes until proven otherwise. One day later you changed your tune.

Yeah, you gave two possible scenarios, the first one that was positive was one single sentence, which you proceeded to follow up with 3 negative doom and gloom sentences. If you can't see how that leaves a negative connotation, then you are in denial.

Those who responded to me harshly didn'tresponded to what I wrote, they responded to what they wanted to read. Nothing I can do about that.

No matter what the RB is, the most important improvement the team can make at that position is acquiring the services of Vonta Leach. Blocking, outlet pass capability, short-term yardage. He would help the team immensely (by making all those RBs better).

Morning everyone. Until we all learn that the T.Martin/Zimm case was just blown up, race-baiting hype brought on by the media and our government to keep us divided, then we as a country shall not progress. If the shooter would have been black instead of white/hispanic, we would of never heard about this. If T.Martin was white/hispanic attacking Zimm, we would of never heard about this. The fact of the matter is Zimm was found not guilty, much like OJ was found not guilty (of killing two people, not one) due to a lack of evidence, period. The whites/hispanics did not go bat shyt crazy after OJ, I hope the blacks can keep it civil now.

United, the power is with the people. Divided, the power is with the government! Hiw do u think they want us?

Damn, this is sum good purp!

The black hood broke Zims nose plus two cuts on his face.
Then the black hood with a history of fist fights slammed Zims skull on the ground repeatedly, cracking his head open and spilling his blood on both sides of his head.
*
Then Zim finally shot dead the punk that was trying to kill him
*
Thank God Zim had a gun
*
Proud day in Florida for the law abiding citizens!

Congrats to Zim*
We should have a national holiday in Florida and in the nation for crime victims Standing Their Ground and protecting themselves>
*
Long Live Zim!
*
July 13th Crime Victims Stand Their Ground Day!
*
Proud day in Florida!

PPPPppprrrruuuuuuppptttt

Ross needs to suck it up and pay for his own stadium
*
Our tax money can be used for infrastructure & jobs keeping Florida beautiful
*
Ross has the cash and says he wants to be remembered for what he did for the Miami Dolphins
*
So build a stadium better than Dallas and get it done with your own money
*
If it such a great investment, the money will be returned with interest to Ross’s pocket
*
No more stadiums in the USA should be built with taxpayer money
There are too many other good causes of need – NOT for private enterprise of Billionaires always looking for a loophole and scam
Enuf of hunddreds of millions of dollars of welfare for Greedy Billionaires

Meanwhile, just this morning PFT rated Miami at 23 and gave their analysis of the pro's and con's of the team.

For those of you that don't see my opinion as being objecive, fair enough, maybe you will consider theirs.

This has the makings of another 1-15 season if Miller, J Martin, and Tannehill all dont make huge progress from last year.

2015,

I doubt the Fish are better then 9 teams. This is year 1 of the massive rebuild and looks likes an expansion team.

Bye bye Pouncey!

The fool is wearing a Free Hernandez cap.

How in the world does Ireland still have his job? Its mind boggling. Is Ross in a coma or what?

Well 2015 we'll see when the games are played where they stand. Seeing as almost all the meaningful player acquisitions have been completed this is the team they go in with this year. I think most people on here have heard the gamut of how the team will suck from jaded fans, social deviant trolls and rival team trolls so at this point I think you got your message across.

Now the non-jaded fans are not going to throw in the towel on the season regardless of how logical and convincing your assessment of the Dophins deficiencies is so no point beating a dead horse.

My question for you is, is there anything about the team this yet that you like?

Hey it's year two of a massive rebuild.

I've got a massive rebuild for you.

Q: What happens when a Hispanic vigilante runs into a black thug?

A: The liberal media blames the white man

Home says, LMAO & Sooooooooo true !

Ireland's top 3 draft picks of 2012

Tannehill = Sucked
Martin = Sucked
Egnew = Sucked

Home report from after the 2012 NFL Draft &
2012 Miami Dolphin Camp = Tannehill, Martin, Egnew a "D" grade at best and bad draft. TanneFAIL = nothing to see here in winning NFL games, Martin = WEAK Liability and Egnew = BUST

Home knows the Dolphins !

Q: What do all the white folks who spent days talking about how "the blacks" would riot if there was an acquittal look like now?

A: The brain-dead, drooling Neanderthal tools they always have been.

They like Dion Sims stance.

Gorilla riots around the nation
Cuz the baby Gorilla was not allowed to punch a law abiding citizen in the face several times breaking his nose and then smashing his head on the side walk repeatedly
.
Personally
Home is glad, real glad the lil punk was shot dead
.
If it happens again
Hope the thug is again shot dead,white or black or milano or zebra striped
Doesn't matter
The violent thug is dead and that is a good thing!

Dark,

I'm not beating any dead horse any more than you and others are on your points of view. Think about it. I am just not ready to join the same glee club.

And your question confirms to me that you misinterpret my posts as being down on the team.You can find the answer to your question in what I've already written.

Really my main point was that there might be 'too much new' on the team to be expecting too much this season, and so many of you miscontrued it into a major negative attack.

Lighten up.

I'm curious as to what you think of PFT's assessment since my personal opinion is so offensive to you. I agree with much of it, only that I'd rate the team higher than they have, maybe 18.


Hope the thug is again shot dead,white or black or milano or zebra striped

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

I had to look this a few times before realizing what you meant to type.

"Milano?" That would be somebody from Italy's largest city or a cookie made by Pepperidge Farm

The word you were looking for is "Mulatto," you blithering idiot.

Seriously. Someone of your VERY limited intelligence might want to reconsider writing about others as 'gorillas.'

What riots, Home? Where?

The character "Home" does not care about cookies, Mulattos or mint Milanos
The problem is the uneducated Gorillas blaming white people for a Hispanic doing a fine job ridding society of another THUG POS that violently & repeatedly assaulted him, trying to kill him
Only an idiot like Gigi with her mentally challenged views and opinions would agree w u
Suppose the the Thug smashed Gigi's dumb thick skull on the ground repeatedly and punched her in her obnoxious disgusting face - breaking her big beak nose !?
Then we should say it was ok and she should not try to keep an eye on her/her neighbors property and well being
>
Fact is Zim is a national hero and the punk needed to be eliminated
>
Great day in Florida!

Most black people are EXTREMELY RACIST in the USA
That's the way it is
.
Blacks kill blacks every day and use the "N" word every other sentence
but if Whitey does it then we "GOTZ T HANG EM HIGH"!!!
>
NAACP is no dif than the KKK
Both disgusting racist organizations
>
period

What was the point of ending slavery??? They didn't take advantage of it. They still can't even speak English, it's like they talk with a sock in their mouth!!! Most lived better as slaves than with their minimum wage jobs. Plus making them slaves again will reduce crime and welfare expenses!!! Plus you can poke the cute ones that work for you! That was the main reason nobody wanted to end it, they wanted the free young koochie! Yayah uhhuh!

If Zim was black and Martin white, the NCAAP would not have had one complaint about the verdict. Dey b RACISTS!

Why do all blacks in the media keep lying and saying the punk POS THUG almost 18 yrs old (an adult in most cases)
was doing nothing wrong when he violently and repeatedly puched the little Hispanic man in the face, breaking his nose and trying to murder him by smashing his head on the concrete !?
Cuz
These blacks are racist lying scum!
period

National Holiday
Stand Your Ground against Violent Criminals like POS MARTIN
July 13th
Celebrate ALL !

tim and others. Do not play into Home's hands. If you haven't been on the blog, he's a disgraced troll who's tired antics have gotten him kicked off the blog more than one time. It's best to ignore him, let him spew his stupidity, because provoking him only entices him to keep up his ignorant chatter.

Let him play his immature games, while we discuss the Dolphins and the upcoming year (pros and cons).

The case should have never been brought to trial!

Zimmerman should be able to sue the Martin family for his injuries and suffering and maybe his POS black parents would learn how to properly raise children not POS Thug Hoodlums trying to murder volunteer neighborhood crime watch law abiding citizens

Long Live Zim!

Nah, it's just social disadvantage in Education. In our case of the Dolphins, talk to Jonathan Martin or Nolan Carroll and notice how well they talk and express themselves. Of course, they both were raised in highly Educated families.

If only all those black people could be such highly evolved, brilliant paragons of society as you guys.

Or (just a hunch) maybe your racism--like any racism--is a defense mechanism against facing the fact that you aren't bright and you have the infantile need to blame your own shortcomings and failure to be a success are actually your own fault.

Much easier to blame "the other."

And, by the way, where are those riots you are talking about?
