What Dion Jordan learned during Week One

In setting up their locker room this year, the Dolphins put first-round pick Dion Jordan next to Cameron Wake. It is not a coincidence.

Wake is a 100-mph dude. He loves to work. He loves to play. And he plays every down like it is his last. That is one reason he is the second-rated defensive end behind St. Louis end Robert Quinn after one game, according to ProFootballFocos.com. Quinn had three sacks and two forced fumbles against Arizona.

Wake got 62 snaps. And went hard 62 snaps. He had 2.5 sacks and four hurries.

That example has quickly traveled the one foot distance separating Wake and Jordan. Jordan gets it.

And after watching Wake against the Browns and have one of his more impressive games in memory, Jordan feels like he learned something in his NFL debut.

How the game should really be played ...

"Consistency," Jordan said. "That's one thing I learned, especially watching this guy Cam Wake rush. Consistency is probably the thing I learned."

What does that mean?

It means no Jadeveon Clowney act.

It means taking no plays off.

"There's no plays off because any play can change this game and Cam made some big plays last week and changed that game last weekend," Jordan said.

This is not to suggest Jordan didn't know about going full speed every play before Sunday. It's just that the game was an illustration of what can happen when you don't. And so he won't.

"I feel if I was ever to take a play off, guys would notice it, especially the guys in my room," Jordan said. "They would notice it. But that's not my menality. I have a motor so I'm going to use it."

Jordan played 17 snaps according to PFF. He had a sack and a tackle. He also had a penalty. The metrics site gave him a negative grade for the game. (Don't ask me, that's what they did).

But Jordan seemed pleased with himself.

"I feel like I played fast ... I  played a lot of special teams, I played a lot of defense. I had a pretty decent role for the team," he said.

It was a solid start.

I couldn't be a moderator, I suggested he find one. I'm too busy at work usually to put the time needed into the blog for those purposes.

Dolphins by at least 10 this weekend. No S.Smith or Dansby to bring this team down.

Also the Colts were playing inspired last year. Coach was hurt.

THE COLTS BARELY BEAT THE RAIDERS.

LET ME REPEAT, THE COLTS BARELY BEAT THE RAIDERS.

THE RAIDERS. Same one everyone knows will suck and will be battling the Jaguars for the First Overall Pick.

Name 1 player on the Raiders defense. Name 1 on the Offense (Not named McFadden or Pryor). The Raiders Suck, and Suck BAD!!

Can we please stop acting like the Colts were playing the Pats or some team of that caliber.

wow Dion Jordan (260 LB) is heavier than Cam Wake (258LB) all that concern that he is too lite to play against tackels.

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

Good to see you're catching up-LOL.

I think I was jabbering the loudest about Jordan's weight and how hard it would be for him to gain. With a 3% body fat, I thought it would take at least a year for him to get in the 260 range.

Apparently Jordan is just as good at gaining weight as he is chasing QB's.

By the start of training camp Jordan was already in the 250+ range, by the start of Pre Season 260!

Anywhoo, good to see you're right on top of things-LOL ;)

Craig M,
The way Henne beats the Pats is he does all of the work himself, throws 50+ times.

That is how you beat the Pats.

WE SPEND THE WHOLE SPRING AND SUMMER READING IN THIS BLOG HOW MUCH BETTER MILLER WAS THAN BUSH

Now there is only silence

THE WHOLE THING COULD BE
S O L V E D
IF ALL OF YOU CLOWNS WOULD

STOP BEING INSULTED BY WHAT ONE ANOTHER POSTS !!!!!!

(It's really a maturity issue.)
.
.
.

Now that it can't be misconstrued as "Sour Grapes"......

Is it just me, or do the refs hold Wake to a higher standard than other pass rushers around the league by letting blockers hold, grab, drape.......basically HOLDING ON FOR DEAR LIFE?

Don't answer, I already know. WTF gives with that? It's disgusting the things other teams are allowed to get away with when facing Wake. He still gets him numbers and impacts the game. But it's unfair and will have a cumulastive effect over a long season.

If I were Ross, Philbin, Ireland, Coyle and right on down the list, I would be petitioning the NFL, the competition committee and the Refs themselves. They can include a ton of video examples from just THE FIRST GAME Alone!

I was disgusted with what the Browns O-Line was being allowed to do.

Am I alone in this..........?

ETF,

sorry man....totally disagree. Henne didn't win that game. We lost. I don't believe you beat the Pats by getting into shootouts with them. We dont have the personnel for that. This is still a middle of the road offence. Pats are likely still top 5....at least they are when healthy.

Who cares what some idiot posts about you....

are they threatening your family ?

Costing you money ?

IT'S JUST A BLOG.

BRANDON WHEEDON THREW FOR 289 YARDS AGAINST US

You just spent ALL offseason telling us the team had to upgrade the WR
-------------------------------------------------------------
There you go again creating another absurd statement trying to make a meaningless point. You take what someone writes; spin it, add to it your version along with a misleading opinion and then...well that's why you should get help, take a break. Go into Rehab. Your arguing with Yesterday's Gone will not be missed.

Forgot to pick up Edelman in a league I have Amendola and I feel like and idiot now. Also, had Shane Vereen in 2 leagues. Bad luck after he looked so good.

Craig M, just shut up your arguments are getting older and more troublesome to those who are rational.

Craig,
I was referring to the Lloyd Carr game in 2010 which we won.
Game 1 of 2011 when Henne set the NFL record for most passing yards combined in a game Henne showed he was prepared to win it but let's see: BM dropped 2 TDs, Fasano lateralled a ball to the the Pats and then there were the DBs rolling around with menstral cramps on the ground.

Like I said the way that Henne did beat the Pats was to do all the work himself. Tanne has better coaches, personnel and defense so maybe it can be a combined effort from here forward.

Also, Daytona (you know who you are) please change your screen name. It's not cool.

The moderator does nothing about it so this guy is free to attack our religions,our ethnicities, our families, and anything else that one would hold sacred.

You know what I wish Armando would talk to us about this because it's the main problem in here.

Posted by: Phins78 | September 11, 2013 at 01:09 PM

Apparently this individual lives in Daytona?

WHEN I'M WRONG I ACT LIKE A MAN AND ADMIT IT

Someone needs to man up after spending all Spring and Summer telling us how good Lamar Miller is.

But, wait a minute! I though no one ever asks Mando about YG's aliases because he's never here! That's what all you blowhards say!

2 outta 3 days he's been here reading & posting & not one of you silly whacko marys ask him about it?

Irony or coincidence? If I was going to ask a question & be made to look like a jackoff(moron,78, odindouche) I wouldn't bring it up either.

MARY's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE SPEND THE WHOLE SPRING AND SUMMER READING IN THIS BLOG HOW MUCH BETTER MILLER WAS THAN BUSH

Now there is only silence

Posted by: ExposingTheFraud | September 11, 2013 at 01:34 PM
=========================================

I **NEVER** said Miller was/is better than Bush.

However, I think he will be and soon. Also, Miller had one start and I'm not going to blame the numbers solely on him. Thomas didn't fair much better and it's OBVIOUS to me that our O-Line wasn't prepared for the Browns front 7 or their DC's game plan.

Which leads me too this, everybody wants to talk about Miller, Thomas and our O-Line. Somewhere in all of this we have to give The Browns Players some credit. At least those on the D-Line and probably even some of the Linebackers.

Simply blaming Miller and comparing him too Bush might help an individuals-individual argument-lol. But I don't believe it's very accurate or realistic.

Now, having said all that, I think the Browns front 7 is way better than Indy's. I also believe that our O-Line will be ready to put up a much better showing.

Point being: Don't try to make a complete evaluation of Miller based solely on the First Game of the Season. Miller put some really good numbers playing in a limited role last year and won the starting job this year for a reason.

Cheers!!!!


Phins78 @ 1:09-
Maybe YG and Armando are lovers. Or Armando is YG.

Iknow we're getting WAY ahead. Of ourselves here but i've been saying for a long tim now that the way you beat Brady is to get in his face. Both the Jets and Giants have shown us that. The Bills did it lat week and almost beat them.

Posted by: Craig M | September 11, 2013 at 01:26 PM

Your the 1st to bring up the fact that the pressure on Brady came from those 2 huge DT's in Buffalo forcing him out of that bubble in the pocket he's so comfortable in. When flushed Brady's accuracy suffers and now to boot Amendola (as we all knew) is already injured and a scratch for there next game. Also RB Ridley is done for the Yr. To BAD we didn't get them early because right now there reeling!

odin,
The reason he 'won' the starting job was that Bush left and JI didn't replace him.

That's like saying Tanne 'won' the starting QB job last Summer when everybody knows that Garrard is the one that 'won' the job according to Philbin.


Craig M, just shut up your arguments are getting older and more troublesome to those who are rational.

Posted by: promichael | September 11, 2013 at 01:48 PM

This is FRIGGIN CLASSIC! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Someone else(not afraid to admit it) finally comes forward.

An argumentative buffoon with a god complex! And you're right, the menopausal daily catfight with him & YG will NOT be missed.

Wait, is Ridley or the son of Ben Vereen done for the year?

Now he's AG.

WEEDEN ALSO HAD OVER 50 ATTEMPTS.

Irony or coincidence? If I was going to ask a question & be made to look like a jackoff(moron,78, odindouche) I wouldn't bring it up either.

YG, we've all mentioned/questioned Armando about you and why you're allowed to trash the joint.

You already know, as we do. I know it's early Dude, sober up and try again.

BTW YG: DEFINE TROLL.........Duh!

PS: I hope Armando was speaking to you when he said: Daytona change your screen name it's not cool.

It's childish and vulgar, but then again, we're not surprised.........you know.......considering who and what we're dealing with.

Cheers!!!!

About metrics: What was the comment Belichick made about stats? Really, I can't remember but it was something about how he didn't think much of them. My point is, Philbin and his staff seem to put too much value in grading (metrics)players. Numbers don't lie? Sometimes they do.

Who cares what some idiot posts about you....

are they threatening your family ?

promichael,

Or whatever you're going by these days....

So what you're saying is I'm making the stuff up about you rambling on about wanting the WRs upgraded? Yeah Ok pal.....I'll let others make up their own minds on that. Whatever you say.

How about I take a break from taking to you? That would make me happy. I'm sure you'll respond back but whatever.....

odin,

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

I won't argue with this.

But I don't really believe that this is the point. The point is, The Browns D, front 7 is probably better than most are giving it credit for.

Our O-Line really didn't perform up to snuff.

Then, only after these two items, do I think Miller and his talents come into question.

It's long season so we shall see. One of us will be able to rub the others nose in it-LOL!

Fraud,

L.Miller will be a beast. He will even be a bigger beast if he was on Dashi's Fantasy team. That is the reason I am not gassing him up.

DC YOU must have been gone when I said I was changing my name. And then I came back under each new name and said why I changed them to begin with.

I changed my names because I was being stalked in more than just the Herald blog. It was at the time Omar had a blog going too. I left here to get away from being attacked and the person followed me there and did the same thing, same attacks.

The reason it is known is because I explained this more than once in here. I was trying to hide from the attacks but got sick of hiding so said I would use the same name, Phins78, from now on and wouldn't hide from this troll. This person knows this and ignores the truth as usual to provoke us. He tries to make it sound as if my changing names is the same as how he uses multiple names when in reality the two reasons for doing so aren't even close to being the same. Not to mention I own my name changes, he does not.

So utterly ridiculous that I have just wasted a minute of my life explaining something that has nothing to do with the reason we are in a football blog to begin with.

Guys it's Vereen who's out not Ridley. Ridley was benched last week for fumbling. I'm hearing Vereen's out until at least week 10. Apparently the rookie TE is supposed to be out this week too and no Gronk again this week. They've tried in vain to get Lloyd to join them but to no avail so far.

How the Hell are these guys still 12.5 points favourites tomorrow night? Just how bad are the Jets?....LOL.

Craig, becaause Brady has turned turd into wine before. And they are playing the Jets ...

Odinputz, keep on making yourself look like the jackas* you really are.

Not that we don't already know but, you do a GREAT job of reminding everyone.

Did you ever think, FOR ONE SECOND, that I haven' been banned because I am NOT YG? Or are you going with the FALSE & UNVERIFIED RUMOR you & your sissy gang of marys continue to try to push on this blog to keep your close knit gang of fairies together? LMAO

You are a brain dead, strung out, coked out moron. Every post you make calling me YG confirms it more n more.

LOL

Trying to deflect your behavior @2:12,

You have threatened our family, Race, Religion and everything else under the sun. On top of that you are an Old Angry Lesbian who stalks Dashi and Sexually Harass him when ever he is on the blog.

I no longer want to break your fingers in 3. I would just like to break your face from Miami to Daytona.

Posted by: For all that is holy |

I already told you I don't care if you are him or he is you. Did you miss that post or something? You answered back so I have to imagine you saw it. I don't care who is who because you both act the same so what's the difference? Fine , you're not whomever, just some other a-hole.

YOU WIN! lol

YG (@ 2:18 PM)


You are one of the people who has a history of allowing yourself to be provolked. (That's why that 'thing' happened on Ohio Dolphan's blog.)

Just try to stay calm...it's really not worth it.

So rather than discuss the Team, you drop in and make two posts in furtherance of the "STUFF" you're "SUPPOSEDLY" condemning.......?

OK......Bud.......Gotcha.

This makes you no better than.........well........ANYTHING or ANYONE.

I expect this will piss you off to no end, considering that the TRUTH often does as much.

REALITY CHECK!

Phins78,

That sucks bro. Its a shame to bothered by people, when all ya wanna do is talk about the Dolphins. Perhaps this person is lonely and has no cure, do to the micropen1s disease. That disease can really take a toll on your self worth, hence lashing out at strangers. So instead of being mad at them, feel sorry for them and their teenie weenie.

Now I'm done with this. I'm not wasting another second of my time on this nonsense. Have your fun.

He 'violated your privacy'? Seriously? But calling you out on a blog under 'Daytona'? You kidding me, man?

Which part did he violate?

Wait, is Ridley or the son of Ben Vereen done for the year?

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | September 11, 2013 at 02:07 PM
========================================================

I think they said he's on IR with an option to return after week 8. It was something like that.

Anyways, I never heard of IR with an option to return.

Is this more Bellicheat Favortism.........?

Joking(I think........Hmmmmmmm........).........

Daytona, Armando asked you change your name, no?

@ 2:23, guess that's keeping it respectful.

Like I said NOTHING HAS CHANGED. THIS GUY CAN'T HELP HIMSELF.

MANDO GIVES HIM ANOTHER CHANCE, WHAT DOES HE DO?

SAME SCHTICK DIFFERENT DAY.

Notice he is still insulting posters and using profane language. How can someone so OLD act so Childish.

Just cause you put a star instead of a letter or change the spelling slightly doesn't cut it.

If I was Armando I would've been pressed charges on you.

That's where I'm at now Rdubs. I've been ignoring it for a while but just wanted to clarify to DC (who is someone that adds to this blog) because he wasn't around for the fireworks. And we're talking 2 years ago, that's how invested this weirdo is in this blog.

phinny78, you don't care? That's funny & ironic!

Just as I don't care as to why you changed your names 10 times or why people were stalking you. Why do people need to know that & why do you want people to know? IT's A BLOG! If your looking for conversation, GET OUT MORE! You seem very lonely.

Who the hell cares about you or your stories?

Rhetotircal question, no need to answer. We already know.

So, I'm an as*hole? That's also funny, cause that's how I feel about you & your presmptive, know it all, always wrong, group of merry "men". We'll use that term loosely, since you all act like a bunch of loose middle aged yentas.

I'm worried about Nolan Carrol starting.. :-(

lol

What are you whinning about now? Does this post even make sense?? You're very troubled. No hotties & your liquer cabinet must be empty! LMAO LMAO

Carrol is starting? Patterson officially out?

Mark,

That's news to me. I haven't heard that. I'll be very surprised if Patterson doesn't start. We need him this week.

Mark,

I think Dmitri aid he will play, from the little info I am able to scrounge up. Sounds like he can go, but things change

YG is right @ 2:37. All these yentas do is ASSume. They have NO idea they're right, yet, try to pawn that idea off on here as if they're really smart.

The fact that they try so hard together to label me & anyone else against their viewpoint as YG is all the proof you need.

They are very defensive because they're fickle sissy ninny mary pants & don't want them exposed as always WRONG.

You are a brain dead, strung out, coked out moron. Every post you make calling me YG confirms it more n more.

Boy -O- Boy, it's pretty bad when we have to remind you of all the idiotic and ridiculous things you say.

Now, seriously, that was your answer? All I did was mention how you're only contributions today was jumping on the trolling gossippy bullcrap. You know, as opposed to actually coming here and talking Football. Twist it anyway you want, you ALWAYS do.

But I've been talking football.......you on the other hand.......NOT SO MUCH-LOL!

Wassa-Matter Honey.........The Truth Hurt.........?

It is Official.

His only form of Social Interaction is this Blog. And probably the Gay Sfla Blog. But I've never checked.

Daytona isn't that special. And you are wrong. Daytona is famous for Rednecks and Bikes. I lived there to Buddy. (Don't forget Black people were still not allowed to vote in Volusia County in the 2000 Election)

Daytona is just a cut above Naples in Florida Cities in my Book. Great place to visit for 1 or 2 days to relax. But not a place I would like to live.

Hey 'Daytona',

At what point will you be changing your name?
