Miami Dolphins notes on an off day

The Dolphins are off today. But you don't get a day off here on this blog.

Here are some random notes from the week so far:

The weather for Pittsburgh on Saturday says snow flurries are possible and that is interesting only in that Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has never played in snow before.

“If it’s snowing I’ve heard it’s not too bad," Tannehill said. "It’s actually nice to play in from the guys just in the locker room talking.  Matt (Moore) played in the snow a few times I think and he said it’s nice, it doesn’t affect the ball and just going out and playing."

The problem for quarterbacks is rarely the snow. The problem is the wind and the freezing rain. Those affect flight and handling of the football.

"Well we practiced wet ball drill today so it’s something that we’re prepared for, if it comes to that," Tannehill said on Wednesday. "Obviously, if you have ideal conditions and you don’t want it to be sleeting.  It’s football, its December football in Pittsburgh and we have to be prepared for whatever comes at us."

----------

Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace is going to be the focus of attention on Sunday. He's obviously returning to play his former Pittsbrugh teammates. And while he has no regrets about his business decision to move on to Miami in free agency, Wallace still lets signs of his nostalgia peek through when he talks.

Asked this week if he misses Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Wallace said, "“Definitely. That’s my guy; it’s not really even about that it's more so just friends. That’s like my big brother. So anytime you play with a guy like that you are automatically going to miss him, but things they happen for a reason. You just take it and roll with it."

Asked about Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin, Wallace said, "That’s my guy, I’ve got a lot of love for Coach Tomlin.  He’s one of the best coaches I ever played for in my life.  Not just as a coach, but as a person and a motivator.  He’s one of the greatest I’ve ever played with, I’m definitely going to have a couple words for him but it’s not just going to be about that.  That’s just an incident that happened on the field, the Soul Train picture was kind of funny though."

Wallace is having dinner Saturday night with some of his former Pittsburgh teammates including Antonio Brown. Wallace said he'd pay.

Brown is Wallace's guy, too.

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

The Dolphins had three players who did not practice on Wednesday -- John Jerry (concussion), Jamar Taylor (hamstring) and Daniel Thomas (ankle). Of those only Jerry has the best chance to play on Sunday.

The Dolphins will give Jerry a baseline concussion protocol test Friday to see if Jerry can be cleared of his concussion symptoms. If he passes, he'll be cleared for practice and would be on his way to playing Sunday. If he cannot pass, Jerry will have to sit. If Jerry sits look for the team to turn to rookie Sam Brenner to fill the spot.

Brenner started at left guard when Nate Garner had to move to center to fill in for Mike Pouncey.

----------

Cornerback Dimitri Patterson was limited in practice on Wednesday but his is a frustrating situation because the team needs him, the team wants him to practice to prepare for games, but the team needs to limit him as well so he doesn't suffer yet another setback on the groin injury that has plagued him this year. I've counted a minimum of two setbacks this season with that injury.

"You have to figure out, you have to have faith that a player is ready, you have to get players ready to play a game," coach Joe Philbin said. "At the same time gauge their physical preparation for the game but also their mental preparation it’s all kind of tied together.  I don’t know if there’s a magic formula to it, I think you just have to take it on a case by case basis."

Ultimately, Philbin said, the decision to play Patterson or not comes down to what's in the best interest of the team.

With Taylor so far not practicing this week because of his hamstring injury, the Dolphins certainly could use Patterson being able to contribute.

Patterson this year has been able to play in only five games.

CleanAll do I have to tell you to shut your dumbhole again? Like I don't know who ETF is. We are up this week in fantasy football, so I'll talk to who I want when I want.

Get the f outta here.

Marc were you born yesterday?

GIve Tannehill a better line and a better running game and he will be a better QB.


Didn't Marino teach you that even a phenomenal QB is not enough?

Even Mega-Idiot Kris finally realized ETF and his 5 other names is a perverted troll not worth a millisecond of time.

Finally.

DarkOak,

I see. You are proud to contribute to the blogs demise.

Why don't you take a vacation to Fukushima?

It really doesnt matter whether bloggers talk to the trolls or not. They arent going away. The Dolphins losing turns homers into trolls.

I'd take exciting football and losses every Dec any day over this garbage I have to watch week in and week out.

Guess it takes one to know one eh Daytona.

Nozwa,

You could surround TannePuke with an allstar team and he'd still stink.

Daytona. LOL. That is how pathetically shallow some of you are. And Paranoid. Always thinking someone is someone else...and Believing your silly fantasies.

I once DarkOak (how gay is that?) had hope. No more.

In the interest of being cool, I'm going to change my name to DarkSpook...or maybe DarkBoogie.

Just would like to see the Fins win the first game in PIT since 1990.

Daytona is a type of person on here dunce. If you'd like here's it used as ancronym:

D - Dunce
A- A-hole
Y - Yutz
T- Troll
O - Obnoxious
N - No Friend
A - ASPD Sufferer

No SB in in 42 years.......and counting.

DarkWad,

You are struggling.

There is no good reason to keep responding to these moronic nauseating trolls, but you continue to do so.

How friggen boring is your life?

Sad.

Very.

Well that's your M.O. isn't it? Lol

What a tool.

Darkoak, try to address the issue instead of coming up with another lame comeback.

What redeeming value is there in responding to derelict trash?

None. So stop trying to defend it.

Posted by: CleanAll | December 05, 2013 at 08:56 PM

So what do you do all day on here? Do you just post telling others who to talk to?
Do you even talk Dolphins football?

While I didn't feel Henne deserved all the hate he received, I will never get ETF's love for the man!

I'm not here all day. You have the same paranoia as others, that everyone is the same person. I talk football yes. That is why it drives me crazy how many of you sheer dumb fuhk idiots keep feeding the trash trolls and thereby ruining the blog. It is insanity. Then you turn around and complain about the trolls who are the same people you are talking to!


LUNACY!

While I didn't feel Henne deserved all the hate he received, I will never get ETF's love for the man!

Classic example of how utterly dumb and gullible you are. ETF Swallower doesn't believe a word he types. It is all a show to get dumb suckers like YOU to respond.

Don't shoot the messenger.

You have to be one seriously brain dead person not to see this.

Woodshed, wake the fk up. It is so freakin obvious.

Pot meet kettle. You're such an idiot you don't even realise the hypocrisy of what you say. Lol

Now that's sad. Find a hobby jackass.

Yeah Darkoak dont respond to that CleanAll scumbag!!

This is no different than saying " I'm shocked a politician would lie"

geez wake the fk up people!

Darkoak has been quiet. Either he is finally getting it or he is powdering his nose.


Please, tell me where I am wrong? Feeding the obvious trolls day after day only drags the blog down further. If you are that freaking desperate for attention buy kitten or a puppy.

You run in fear when confronted with reality. I'm on your side. Trying to stop the endless pathetic drivel here. And you all that are so against the trolls are responsible for fostering it.

Wake the fk up or don't ever complain about the blog.

What is shocking is the utter degradation of society. I never knew this many people were so brain dead. Thank your governments plan, and the politicians you voted for, for successfully dumbing down society. This means YOU.

I'm out. Have fun writing profound comments about me now, like LOL, LMFAO, and whatever else you need to hide from yourselves.

Has Irescum been fired yet?

I have been posting here for awhile now but I have to say I can't tell one troll from the other.

Maybe it's because I don't pay that much attention to them I dunno. Sometimes they can be kind of funny though.

Anybody wanna fill me in on who's who??

Clean All is the biggest troll ever on this blog. Isn't he Daytona?

Isn't he Daytona.......?

Isn't he, Daytona........?

Depending on comma's and/or inflection, that's a question and a statement.

Isn't it, Daytona......?

A study was done concerning snowy conditions during football games. half of the teams were given a placebo, and the other half were given a snow plow to clear space for field goal attempts. the teams given a snow plow had a higher percentage of successful field goal attempts then the teams getting a placebo

Cleanall leaves and instantly odinplop arrives.

Greg Cote along with the rest of the NFL's "experts" have ALL picked against The Dolphins. When will reality finally set in for the delusional homer crowd ?

6-7 ?

How about 6-8 ?

Look on the bright side.

At least The Dolphins have a chance not to be renamed the 7-9's.

You can always hope for 8-8.

After all, hope what you live for.

Bwhahahahahaha !!!!!

GO DOLPHINS!

I'm going game this Sunday can't wait hope we can pull it out Sunday.

It is Tannehill Time will he deliver or not I think he will , I just hope the game this week is called fairly because if they didn't call a penalty on a coach sticking his foot out to trip somebody what will they do against the Dolphins , Steelers will probably get home town calls if it is close which it probably will be.

You haven't heard me respond because I have a life I take part in. Try leaving your Mom's basement sometime soon, get some sun for Christ's sake at least. And go see a shrink ASAP because you need help son, you don't know how to converse with others.

Toodles.


We're on the march with Philbin's army.
All the way to the play-offs.

Henne is playing horrible tonight btw. Glad he's gone.

Lets hope our new GM gets a better HC.

I live for filth in all its myriad forms and permutations. Filth is the sacred bedrock of our nation. Filth is what fills our children's lives. Filth is what drives our sacred places of worship.

Filth is a blessing from God Almighty. Give thanks and praise for FILTH.

This blog has seen better days.

There's a few day time posters here and other than that, Daytona has completely ruined the place.

I would post the address where most of us former posters go, but you know who would see it. If you look long enough, you'll find us. Most are posting there under the same names we use to use here.

Good Luck!!!!

Then why don't you do us all a favor and stay there?

For years now odin comes by, cuts and pastes countless posts from all the trolls, and gives them 10 times more attention by responding with utter derelict nonsense that entertains nobody. odin basically increases the trash factor here by a power of 10.

Good riddance friend. Stay happy on your other blog and leave us the fkkk alone.

The football posts and the overall maturity and intelligence of this blog increase exponentially in direct correlation to Odin not participating in it. He has always been the single biggest burden and useless nitwit here. He should depart and focus on his parking lot attendant duties.

Tell us again how SpOrano is going to be the most sought after head coach in the NFL....

Bhwaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

It's true, this idiot alcoholic actually posted this for about a week straight - ROTFLMAO!!!!

The football posts and overall maturity and intelligence......?

No kidding you guys, Dying Turd is an ancient alien astronaut theorist-ROTFLMAO!

The Meth Head is **TOASTY** ;)
