Salguero and PFF: Unstoppable!

I will be partnering with ProFootballFocus.com this year to bring you the best metrics available on the Dolphins anywhere. They will provide the measurables, I'll augment with analysis and insight. Together we'll be unstoppable!

But seriously ...

As everyone knows, tonight's preseason finale against somebody or other is meaningless. If (huge if) Ryan Tannehill plays at all (I doubt it) you'll have to delay your blinks or you'll miss him. Other starters may play but I cannot be specific at this point, as coach Joe Philbin has declined to reveal his strategy for this big tilt.

I can give you some interesting information related to last week's important dress rehearsal game versus Tampa Bay, directly from the analytical geniuses at ProFootballFocus.com:

OFFENSE:

John Jerry saw his first action of the preseason against the Buccaneers with 22 snaps. He struggled in pass protection and run blocking.

(Salguero: Jerry needs more work, which is why I advocate playing the starting offensive line tonight. Play them all. They all need work. I will say that last week, Tyson Clabo had an excellent game).

In the battle for the #2 tight end position, Dion Sims saw 23 snaps with the second-team offense while Michael Egnew saw 22.

(Salguero: Sims had the better game. He blocked better. He played faster. He is ahead of Egnew).

Rookie WR Chad Bumphis played the fewest snaps (3) of any wide receiver.

(Salguero: This sounds quite alarming at first blush. And we'll know tonight whether it is if the trend continues. If the trend continues, then that means Bumphis is on the outs. But if he gets snaps tonight, it is possible Bumphis had already earned a spot on the team -- even as the No. 5 receiver -- and coaches wanted to give others a chance to get the remaining spot. There's also a chance the Dolphins were hiding Bumphis, although this is less plausible because he returned punts).

Josh Samuda played all 50 snaps at first-team right guard, but gave up 3 hurries.

Charles Clay manned 42 snaps as the first-string tight end. He picked up a negative grade in pass catching, but cancelled it out with an equally positive run blocking grade.

Tannehill attempted just two passes 20+ yards down the field.

(Salguero: He wanted to throw to Mike Wallace deep on one play, but Wallace got pushed out of bounds on a double move, so knowing that Wallace was thus ineligible to catch the football, Tannehill threw a check-down pass).

Third-stringer Pat Devlin, fighting for a roster spot, passed well when pressured (5-for-7), but stumbled when he had time (7-for-14 and an INT). He completed only 3 of 6 passes with one interception on throws of 10 yards or more and didn't attempt a pass of 20 yards or more.

Mike Wallace, Brandon Gibson,  and Charles Clay each dropped a pass from Ryan Tannehill.

(Salguero: I also recall a drop by Brian Hartline in the end zone).

Perhaps most surprisingly from PFF is this: Left tackle Jonathan Martin was much maligned in his rookie season where he split time between right and left tackle. He finished the season grading positively in only two games all year and had the third worst pass blocking efficiency among starting tackles. Thats why his first three games this preseason were a revelation. Martin didn’t give up a single pressure until Saturday. Against a mixture of Adrian Clayborn and Daniel Te’o-Nesheim Martin gave up a hit and two hurries 

DEFENSE

After releasing Richard Marshall during the week, Dmitri Patterson played 27 snaps as the #2 cornerback on the other side of Brent Grimes.

(Salguero: Patterson is your other starting cornerback, folks. Coach Joe Philbin has declined to say that's the case, but that is indeed the case).

MLB Dannell Ellerbe had 4 defensive stops on 28 snaps, while OLB Philip Wheeler had 3 stops in his 25 snaps.

(Salguero: Ellerbe has been outstanding this preseason. If he plays the regular season like he did the preseason, the Dolphins definitely upgraded).

Jamar Taylor, Nolan Carroll, and Will Davis all took at least 20 snaps as reserve cornerbacks. Carroll graded positively, Taylor was average, and Davis received a negative grade.

(Salguero: I like Nolan Carroll as a person. I'm not buying that he will be 16-games consistent as the third CB. Why not, you ask? Because this is his fourth NFL season and he's never been that in three previous seasons. He is what he is).

Dmitri Patterson was targeted three times by Josh Freeman. He allowed just the one catch for 5 yards.

The Dolphins, as a team, allowed the Bucs to haul in just 9 of their 24 targeted passes.

Special Teams

Rishard Matthews missed a tackle on special teams and did not look comfortable on the kickoff coverage team.

When will you guys that cry "STICK TO FOOTBALL" unretard yourselves long enough to actually see that it is you who bring the blog down to stinky levels most?

There are actually "blog hit trolls". Duhhh............ when will you actually develop sense enough to not respond to them?

Accusations, false accusations, self-delusions..... Do you actually call that "football talk"?

Boy oh boy, you're in far greater delusion than any troll could ever be. At least the blog hit trolls know their job and do it very well. It's highly questionable you can say the same for yourselves.

How to make tonight's game of reserves and bubble players more interesting? Let's think of it as the Acorn Bowl.

I love to Live Blog. I have great spelling, have taken speed reading courses and can type over 160 wordsppmin. All for free.(I don't need the $$$)

It Is I @ 5:24pm

You hit the nail on the head yo.

Wow................... So much great evil occurring in the world today, even here in America. Then the best some of you whiney mutton chops can do is get all bent out of shape about a totally meaningless football blog.

This blog doesn't even make a cloaking existence in the grand scheme of importance of things. People are actually losing their lives, losing their loved ones, being violated to earth shattering degree.

Then you have brainless idiots whose lives seem to be completely falling apart over 2 simple letters of the alphabet:

Y........G...................

UNFUCKINGBELIVABLE.............

What makes you fools believe those jackoffs on the twitter feed are not the same regulers here? Do you think they just popped out of the blue once the twitter feed appeared? Isn't about 1000 times more likely they are the douchebags here not showing their daily 'troll' name?

Likewise I'm always running replay on my U-Verse and find the Live Blogging to much of a distraction to pay the kind of attention I like!

Some of you through the Yrs. I feel I've gotten to know even though not familiar on with personally. That said I don't know who the heck follows this sight nor enough about anyone outside of Salguero to expose myself to with access to me or my family personally, no offense!

Fins vs Browns

17-3

Giving the browns a FG cause they are playing at home.

THE BROWNS WILL NOT MOVE THE BALL ON OUR DEFENSE.

kc favored by 4 over gb, why would u ever be surprised at any line in a last preseason game

Odin...

have seen you less and less as the season approaches....not sure whats up with that....

that douche YG has ran to many a good blogger from this site....

its time to call it what it is...

he will either change his name and conform....or he will be the next to go....

but no more innocent bystanding while he (and his many names) attempt to humiliate another regular blogger...to say the least...

the jig is up....

browns will score some points on us. ill go cleveland 17-13 sadly enough

Hey, odin, wassup. How's Debo?

Egypt killing it's citizens in droves. Syria up for international retaliatory strike for gassing it's citizens, killing hundreds if not 1,000's. So much real evil, so much real unrest exiting both in this country and worldwide.

Yet some of you real dumbasses have allowed 2 freaking letters, "YG" become your self professed Adolph Hitler. Still you can not see you've headed for a point of o return. God Bless you all....

apperntly...

you can ONLY call out YG so much before the "staff" starts deleting your post...

its cool...

mission accomplished....

This blog doesn't even make a cloaking existence in the grand scheme of importance of things. People are actually losing their lives, losing their loved ones, being violated to earth shattering degree.

Agreed on the importance of this silly place in the grand scheme but People are also having their identities stolen through their home computers or giving up enough personal information to have their financials hacked ect... Thanks but NO thanks!

isn't it the ALOCO character hat is suppose to be saying...godbless...such and such"....

your slipping man...

What makes you fools believe those jackoffs on the twitter feed are not the same regulers here? Do you think they just popped out of the blue once the twitter feed appeared? Isn't about 1000 times more likely they are the douchebags here not showing their daily 'troll' name?

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


Good point...those twitter morons are probalby all the ones always whining about trolls here.

The other poster makes a good point you all cried for a sign on blog and when you get it you have more excuses than a busted politician.

had to type the last comments with out the letters WHY GEE in them....

that is the only way they would get posted...

but yeah....

"AK ARMANDO".....

Actually, I pay no attention whatsoever to Armando's twitter Game feed after I tried it for 10 sec when it first came out. I'm all into my Live Blogging.

Kris Kry,

Have you any more compliments for ETF the ear puller today?

By the way, do your ears hurt?

The post @ 5:38 is PURE RETARDATION....

i mean seriously...the FIST part of the reply...TOTALLY contradicts the 2nd part of your statement...

slow down....then take a breath...then post...RETARD.....

told you tou wer to STUPID to keep your OWN SIGN IN NAME secret....

DUMB @SS

We never beat Cleveland.

It Is I, In-Yur-Ass, I thought you were gone to never comeback again.

We all know you aren't a man of Honor. That you lack Integrity. And are a Degenerate Homoerotic Pedophile.

But..

We all believed that you finally came to the realization that nobody cares for your existence, nevertheless your opinion.

Slit your throat, Cut your Wrist, Blow your brains out. Do any of these things just stop posting here please.

It is nauseating just reading most of the junk you post here.

I feel sorry for your mother. She deserved better.

I know cause I know her intimately. I could've been your father but I-Busted-In-That-Ass.

YG, odin and I know much more Football than the other 2 posters here.

The other poster makes a good point you all cried for a sign on blog and when you get it you have more excuses than a busted politician.

Not everybody! I myself have never liked the idea of doing anything over FACEBOOK for starters the one registered to me is used by my wife to upload pics ect.. The whole exp. of following peoples family pics and mundane daily life is to me (in my house) a chick thing!

True B that,

Those were4 their exact words:

Armando needs a Twitter Facebook login. Plus be MONITORED.

Now that's exactly what they have for Live Blog, and now read their posts. Totally hilarious.

Maybe a blessing in disguise, because we now know if Armando chanes the blog format to Twitter/Facebook monitored login. They are the ones that would be gone for good. At least that's what their recent posts suggests.

Plus, these guys would find out it's been many the same ones they are buddies with, changing screen names and attacking them. They are most afraid o being excposed. Talk of better blog format to eliminate trolls was only smokescreens to hide them true selves.

Unless you are referring to I. Doubt your football knowledge is as vast as mine.

No Offense.

LOL @ 5:43...


"gone to never come back".....

please....

when is this guy not here.....

Oscar, is it true you and YG are the same person. Is it also true you both are Home and Truth.

Say it ain't TRUE Homie.

fin4life,

I have a Facebook account but never use it. Nothing important or personal there.

You can literally open as many FB accts as you want. You can even open one to only use here. You set your own "SECURITY STANDARDS".

Set it on "only friends" can see personal info or only yourself. Just don't use "public" security setting. Really simple.

It is a well known fact by some on here that Oscar works for the Herald and drives a Red Corvette. And YG is his trusty knob polisher that drives a red S2000.

It is also a well known fact when Oscar goes on vacation him and YG pull out the Red Honda Motorcycle. The 2 Seater. With Matching Leather Vest and Chaps. Plus, they rub themselves with baby oil so they won't get burnt from the Flaming Sun in the Florida Keys.

Kris,

You are Correct. Armando Salguero has made the letters Y-G a cuss word.

If that doesn't expose these 2. I don't know what will.

I know they don't have any Offense, It Is I.

Kris,

Give a break fool. You're the only one "supposedly getting portions" of your posts deleted?

1. You're not that important to us or the Herald

2. If the Herald were "out to get you" your ENTIRE POSTS wouldn't show.

3. Boy do you need to hurry and get that paranoid schizophrenia diagnosed.

4. Portions of your posts probably don't show because of:

A. You're using a piece of crap device not 100% compatible to Herald apps.

B. Maybe you need to defrag or use the tune-up feature that might be installed.


HAPPY PARANOING, BUD...................

The Truth...

my point exactly....

Y-Gee!!

Oscarrr!!

Come out and play!!

YG...................

Wow, I must be Armando, it works on my computer.

Kris, the hit troll is now working with you. I don't see you complaining about that. Hillarious, my man....

That double post is a perfect example of flip-flopping.

First post got deleted, and Magically reappeared after I posted it a second time.

This blog was running much smoother without the IT guy trying to play God.

yeah @ 6:14...

but 2 different poster's have to make VARIATIONS to YhG....

coincidence....

I THINK NOT....and its not funny....

YG, YG, YG.....................

Full proof it's Kris paranoia and crap internet device.

Go ahead, Ill bet a month's pay, any of you try and ost YG it posts.

Wow, Kris now blames the Herald for the crappy equipment he's using. ROTFLMAO..............

Another post just got deleted.

Hell, I have a Facebook account but use it only for cyberguerrilla affairs vs Fidel Castro. But I could use it for other things.

Kris,

It ain't 2 different posters. It's the blog hit troll agreeing with you t get more hits fool..... LOL...

And just magically reappeared.

We are being monitored hard by some clown with no life.

You 2 clowns haven't denied what I said earlier.

fin4life,

You can even use an avatar if you don't want strangers to know your face.

I promised myself never to get into the troll back-n-forth again but ROTFFLMFAO! For a second in the 1st paragraph you had me goin!

The more someone knows about you the more vulnerable you become. That can also be true well beyond this blog.

I'm an Open Book.
