« What Dion Jordan learned during Week One | Main | Handful of Dolphins among nominees for HOF »

The latest from Dolphins camp on a Wednesday

The Dolphins are practicing late today as per their new schedule and here's what's happening:

Cornerback Dimitri Patterson, nursing a tender groin, returned to practice today. Patterson, however, seemed limited during the portion open to the media. I expect Patterson will play against the Indianapolis Colts, as he told The Herald on Sunday.

But ...

It's important he not suffer a setback. It's important the Dolphins are cautious with him.

To that end, it's possible Patterson might be limited to duty as the slot corner in obvious passing situations versus Indy. In that scenario, Nolan Carroll would have to start. Obviously, if Patterson feels fully recovered, he can take his spot in the starting lineup.

Rookie cornerback Jamar Taylor also is not practicing. He's been dealing with the hernia/groin issue since the offseason. He's not going to play on Sunday.

Quarterback Pat Devlin (ankle) also is not practicing today.

We can all tell who Pele Is.

Notice, Dashi is keeping it PG.

I'm call it a night before I go Off on this Whoopie Cushion.

Dion Jordan has many of the same muscle characteristics at the molecular level that Usain Bolt has. Only, he does not run quite as fast as Bolt does. Hmm...

Dashi,

You might want to stick to chatting with Benz, he is down there at your level.

true, Marino failed the wonderlic test...

fine Pele, we'll leave it at that, a commentary on his skills as an analyst......because you didnt KNOW that he was taken fairly early (you know, where the better players/athletes are taken) in the MLB draft, did you?--so now you really cant think of much to say regarding his athleticism when you realize that he was an elite baseball prospect AND an all time great pro QB--we'll move on.

Whoopee

that would be the "factual level", Pele

Marino was not an athlete. he couldnt run 10 yds.

MadFin and ETF,

MadFin is right. It wasn't 5 Wide Receiver Formations, but we did run some Empty Backfield sets.

I didn't get to record it so I'm not positive. But I believe we ran the empty set 4 times and got 2 first downs, 1 positive yardage and an incomplete.

Don't quote me on this, but yeah, Sherman surprised me a little calling this. However, I was pleasently surprised because at the time, we needed to do it. We needed to get something going and sustain it. The empty set was successful in my opinion.

Also, on that quote by Sherman saying that Philbin wanted to pass the ball every down if needed, that wasn't in regards to the Browns game. It was a general statement(I believe). But I do KNOW it was made and referred to by Sherman BEFORE the Browns game.

I actually first read about it in Barry Jackson's column well before the Browns Game. So the comments made tonight by SOMEBODY were moot. Not cutting on anyone either here. I'm just saying, it was being taken out of context and not just by you(Whomever it was-Great Memory I have-LOL).

Cheers!!!!

I got sick of College Football when at that time it was the only thing to do in Miami on Saturday afternoons. That aversion still prevails.

Those that think soccer players aren't athletes are just trying to be noticed.

It gets interesting when you bring in jockeys, golfers or race drivers.

First, it's been generally considered that Jockey's are the strongest, pound for pound, athletes in any sport. Also, their ability to make quick decisions can be a manner of life or death. Or the difference between injury (possibly serious) and no injury. With their physical strength and the need for a extremely good imagination as to what may happen before it does. To put oneself and his mount into a position of winning takes strength and brains.

Will offer an opinion on golfers and race car drivers later.

Marino trips up every single time as an NFL analyst. He is so worried about choking he chokes. There are outtakes of prerecorded shows where he goes ballistic with anger because he is screwing up his lines. Check it out on YouTube.

All of Marino's records are falling. The only one that will last forever will be that of being the only QB in history to cry after a Super Bowl.

Great athletes don't cry.

If you look close at the Marino statue, you will see the artist snuck in a fain't shadow of a tear drop.

Artits are savvy and love to make comments under the radar through their art.

Maybe he could also demand Wallace get more balls thrown his way and that the RB gain more than 1 ypc. And that Starks and Solai take the deal they were offered or else.

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

I don't think it qualifies as a demand, but Ross did tell reporters that we have to block better and get the run game going.

FWIW...........

Jordan after winning his 4th title. Ray Lewis. The list is pretty long of great athletes who have cried after winning or losing.

Fool

We aren't talking tears of joy.

We are talking tears of shame and failure.

You are dense. Might want to hang with Benz once he gets his GED. (Hang wth his mom in the mean time)

Both Race car drivers and golfers, for the most part, fall into the same categories. In both cases they work out on a continual basis. Even now, way past it, I work out 5 days a week. The main reason that they can fairly be considered athletes is for the conditioning and the reasons for it. With the proper conditioning is the ability, regardless of fatigue, to make the proper decisions in a very timely manner. In both examples instantaneous decisions. If your not in good shape your concentration wans and nothing good happens after that.

That can also be said of a LB. If he's tired his decision making will suffer. His concentration wouldn't get him be able to get him past the fatigue.

Marino played touch football. Always scared of contact. He's a girly man.

Remember this post when ETF tells you he hasn't posted under these names for years.


Kris? Comment?

Oscar you know Bolt is the fastest runner in the history of the world.
why would you compare?

ouch Pele.....SO insulting

Progolf knows something through direct knowledge, not like those who just assume they know that which they know nothing of.

Jose Fernandez ROY for the MARLINS!!!!!!! This kid was 9-0 at home. 1.19 ERA. MARLINS IN THE WIN COLUMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

wow Pele.....now you're like Socrates......you're so.....so.....impressive

except of course for the fact that you didnt know Marino was taken in the MLB draft as well.....besides that fairly well known fact, especially in Dolphin-land, you're very impressive--but I'm sure you're up on your Jets' facts......like the one where they drafted O'Brien just ahead of Marino--nice!

✔ @JimIrsay

Raider/Colts-- we gotta protect #12 better..and that includes more than just OL...it's backs,TE's,coaches on blitz pick ups..I DEMAND better
11:27 AM - 11 Sep 2013

Really his Twitter doesn't qualify? I always come correct. You have me confused with some of the other uninformed opinions from fake fans on here.

Pele....thanks for the kind words but as I continual to post here it's going to be embarrassing for all to see my general lack of intelligence.

boy Pele, this is worse for you by the minute.....

Only a Jests fan woold support Ireland.

Hard to feel sorry for Ireland. Look at our draft this year. #1-Jordan-Good pick, maybe great things ahead. #2- Taylor- probably won't be effective in any manner this year. No summer work and no preseason. #3-Dallas Clark-Our OL has problems but if we have to plug him in, it'll get worse. #3-Davis-at least when he's on the field you notice him for better or worse. Way to early to tell but may contribute. #4-Jenkins-at present forgetaboutit! #4-Sims-looked to have promise in the preseason but the coaching stall has him playing behind Agnew. #5 Gillislee-would be better to serve the team on the PS and get a veteran. At least the veteran would have a chance of contributing. #5-Sturgis-good job. #7-Jones-appears to have ST ability.

So we have Jordan and Sturgis this year. Have to wait on any of the others. Really thought that Ireland could help the team in the short run (this year) with the draft. I was wrong again!

Dion Jordan is likely to be injury prone more so than Jake Long and wont be with Miami past his current contract.

I feel privileged(though I've always been so). It is an honor to be the only poster that is allowed to write here that does not work for Armando or Miami Herald. Thank you, thank you.

I support Ireland completely and hate the Jets. So there's always that. Stop speaking for the fans especially since you are obviously not one. Not sure who is feeling sorry for Ireland.

Fortunately, we haven't needed Taylor or D. Thomas this year. It's not like we had holes to plug those guys right into anyhow. It's really tough to jump to conclusions on any of these guys after one game. One thing I think we've seen is this coaching staff doesn't just put rookies on the field quickly unless they are ready.

Definitely this is a tougher one if only because of great Players, Andrew Luck, Reggie Wayne. GN.

Luck. BFD

Such wimpy fans talk themselves into being scared of everyone. We can play the worst team in the league and you fans will be trembling at how great they are. Cleveland has been worse than us for 9 centuries and you pancakes with artificial maple syrup were making excuses saying how tough they are.

I really felt the Dolphins were better than Cleveland. I also think as a team we are better than Indy. But Luck is a wildcard. He can go crazy off the charts. I hope we can beat him up early so he can't hurt us late in the game.

I think it is really important for us to get ahead so he will take chances to catch up. That would make him more predictable and easier to defend.

I don't like our chances if we get behind by 10 or more. He is very effective at playing ball control and moving the chains.

Luck is God. The whole organization and fan base is terrified of him. Maybe we should just forfeit the game and rest up for the following week?

Many of you would rather have a weak schedule, sneak into the playoffs, and hope the ball bounces our way.

Not me. I want to confront the best and destroy them. I want to be a real winner, not a cubic zirconium winner.

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

You called others names, so I feel like **YOU** made the rules for this "Exchange". If you want to call it that.

Lets see now..........(Ahem)..........**You IDIOT!**

Marino didn't shed tears of shame, nor failure.

Marino's tears were purely Anger and Malice, shed towards **HIMSELF**.

Of course shameless trolling's of failure on your part, indicates to me, that you're obviously incapable of understanding either(as evidenced by your own ramblings above).

I'll apologize in advance as I'm sure the Truth will offend. I think it best and to your advantage if I just keep it "Simple-tonian" verbiage-wise:

**You Sir, are an Idiot!**

~ My apologies to the rest of you good people. But sometimes there are those that have to be spoken to in "Their Own Language" ~

Odin,

Awesome job of kissing (licking) Armando's butt yesterday. We see you are back to your normal derelict self now. Didn't take long.

Odinstye, maybe you can teach your boy toy that soccer players are athletes?

Tis the hour where odin comes on his meth rage and cut and pastes for 5 hours.

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

TruthhurTs,

Sorry I wasn't more clear. No confusion on my part. I wasn't questioning your comments regarding Irsay in the least. I read them myself.

I was refering to the comments Ross' made after the Browns game not qualifying as "Demands". Apparently I should have been more clear. That or maybe you might not be so quick to get defensive. I'm not one of those "Fake Fans" either.

You were calling for Ross to be more assertive I believe. I was just paraphrasing what Ross told reporters after the game, which in turn was reported in the Herald.

After reading my qualifier or clarification above, try reading my post to you again, in it's entirety:
= = = = = = = = = = = =

Maybe he could also demand Wallace get more balls thrown his way and that the RB gain more than 1 ypc. And that Starks and Solai take the deal they were offered or else.

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

I'm not sure who you are or if you've even posted here before under a different sign in. But Like I said above, I don't think you're one of the fake fans or a troll.

On the contrary, I have liked the posts I have seen from you in this short period. Like this one particularly. Not only is it early to judge these guys, how can anyone even try to judge the entire draft class after only ONE GAME? I'm not saying you did this. I see your response and I agree totally.

Pro Golf I think is relatively new here as well. I have read all of your posts, most of them anyways. This is the first one I've had an obvious problem with. I think you know as well as I do(as well as anyone and everyone that follows NFL Football), that you simply cannot judge an entire draft class after having only seen a couple of them even play. It's ludicrous-PERIOD!

It's OK to have opinions about the Draftees and all, but realistically speaking, mainly, due too injury, what did you see? Two of them even played? A third in Sims played very sparingly.

Injuries happen in the NFL and it sucks. But let be honest here Man, you trying to judge the entire draft class at this point and time is just plain old ridiculous.

What's more, I don't know who you are and I haven't seen you before very recently, but I have to seriously question your..........well.........everything about you after having read how you attempt to judge the whole class negatively this early on.

That's just my own personal opinion and my own two cents. Sorry if I offend, but that's just the way I feel about it. Having said that, I'm pretty sure that by and large 85 to 95% OF NFL Football Fans across the league would agree. It's insane to try and judge a draft class this early on.

Wow!!!!

Cleveland has been worse than us for 9 centuries and you pancakes with artificial maple syrup were making excuses saying how tough they are.

Nice Post - ROTFLMAO!

True.......very.......TRUE!!!!

Everybody Knows at 11:32,

PERFECTLY Said. I don't want to have to play him with the score close or behind by any significant amount. That's a recipe for disaster.

This team is too young and too knew to each other for those kinds of games at this point.

Besides that, it'll just be so much more easier on all of us when we can have our Front 7 pinning their ears back and getting after that Ass!!!!

Ideally, we have to get an early lead and "Protect It". But we have to "Protect It" by keeping our foot on the pedal offensively and dialing up constant and continual pressure defensively.

I think it's going to come down to being a Game of "Who makes the least mistakes".

Tannehill finished up last season by playing the last 5 games without turning the ball over. His one INT last Sunday was on a tip. I see him improving in this department and God Forbid that Sherman tries to make him try and force some throws into Wallace.

Philbin and Sherman have both stated that in this offense, we don't throw the ball to jersey numbers. We go through our reads and throw too whoever gets open.

Wallace has some legitimate complaints, but a ton of them trace right back to the play of the O-Line. So, OBVIOUSLY the O-Line has to play better. In turn, Wallace needs to shut up and GET OPEN!

Tannehill will be looking for him this week, you can BET on THAT!

ValHalla!!!!

Not me. I want to confront the best and destroy them. I want to be a real winner, not a cubic zirconium winner.

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

**THAT's** what I'm talking about Bodine!

Whatever don't Kill You, makes you STRONGER!

Playing against the best makes you a BETTER TEAM!

Beating the Best makes you a Champion. Going Bodines way, when we get to the Playoffs, we'll be ready for **ANY** and **ALL** of them!

This win is going to go a long ways towards making us better and maybe most importantly, instilling some badly needed confidence in an outstanding Group Of Youngsters!

I know......I know........Rah-Rah! Go Team!

Sincerely,

Odin The Homer!!!!

I would not be surprised if Indy plays us the same way Cleveland did. If they can keep us to 23, they might think that luck can score more than that to beat us.

That is why we must come out throwing to try and get a lead. Trying to establish the running game is after you establish that you can score some points.

Odinstye, maybe you can teach your boy toy that soccer players are athletes?

Posted by: Bo Jack | September 11, 2013 at 11:43 PM
===================================================

No sir, I wouldn't touch that argument with ah.........well........with **YOUR** pole, however long(or short)it is.

I will say that I PERSONALLY believe that your Average Professional Soccer Player is an **EXTREMELY GIFTED ATHLETE**. A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT Skillset, but "EXTREMELY GIFTED" nonetheless. And Endurance.....? OMG! Probably the best of all Professional Athletes the world over.

That's my opinion. No one can change it in any way, shape or form. So there is no need for me to debate it or argue it with ANYONE for ANY REASONS!

And THAT's - THAT........as they say ;)

Soccer players yes. Race car drivers no. Dexterous technicians but not athletes.

That is why we must come out throwing to try and get a lead. Trying to establish the running game is after you establish that you can score some points.

Posted by: Everybody Knows | September 12, 2013 at 12:53 AM
========================================================

Agreed! If I were Indy's Head Coach or DC, that's the way I would play it too. Try forcing Tannehill into position to have to make **ALL THE PLAYS**, betting on the odds of him making the BIG MISTAKE(s).

I agree with your "counter-Punch too". Count on better O-Line play, but set up the run with the Pass.

This all makes for what SHOULD be a very intense and Fun Game to watch. I still believe that our Defense gives too big of an edge for Luck and Co.

I think he'll get exposed for being a touch younger and a little bit more inexperienced than everyone admits too. Wake, Dion Jordan and Danell Ellerbe will ensure as much!

Pele @ 9:11-

Hockey players expend way more energy than soccer players. Why do you think they substitute every couple of minutes? Get a clue, half-wit.
