Mike Sherman: 'We're making noise'

Mike Sherman thought the Dolphins missed on an opportunity to win a statement game earlier this season when the team went to New Orleans undefeated but couldn't deliver a win. He does, however, believe the Dolphins came through in a statement game on Sunday.

And now where are they now?

"This was another opportunity like that one," Sherman said Monday. "This opportunity exists for us to go out there against a really good football team and make some noise. And that's what we're doing now, we're making noise. That's about it. We're playing as hard as we can play and coaching as hard as we can coach. And we're taking it one day at a time. However it ends up, it ends up."

One of the reasons the Dolphins are making noise is the December improvement of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He has thrown for 843 yards, 8 TDs, 2 INTs in three games. And yesterday's 312-yard, 3-TD performance was outstanding.

But maybe not his best, according to Sherman.

"Let's see, that was pretty near the top," Sherman said. "I don't know if it was the best, but it was pretty near the top. His decision-making was excellent. His compusure. He made some big time throws in critical situations. Considering the opponent, I guess it was near the top."

Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle, great guy, continued to add to the building legend of defensive back Michael Thomas. We all know Thomas was poached off the San Francisco practice squad by the personnel department last week. He showed up at camp on Tuesday.

And on Sunday, pressed into service by injuries to Brent Grimes and Nolan Carroll, he intercepted Tom Brady to save the day. Well, Coyle was asked how many practice repetitions Thomas got with the defense last week.

"He got zero reps in practice," Coyle said. "The only reps he got were reps on the scout team (running the New England defense) and he spent a lot of time in meetings."

Coyle said assistant Blue Adams kept Thomas in meetings after practice, after most players had left Friday, then again on Saturday after the walk-thru.

On the final series, Jimmy Wilson moved to cornerback. He hadn't gotten a snap at cornerback dating back to OTAs two years ago, Coyle said. Rookie cornerback Will Davis was in the game. And obviously Thomas was in.

Interestingly, the Dolphins see Thomas as more a safety or nickel defensive back than a cornerback, Coyle said.

"As big as the last play was, the play prior to it, it looks like on our film, the [receiver's) got the ball in his hands and (Thomas) comes over the top and punches it out. If he doesn't make that play, we never get to the last play."

Coach Joe Philbin declined to say whether the botched field goal was a fake or not. It was.

Ancient Egyptians are negro = black people

Every race has great minds.

The Jack of Crackers Is very uneducated.


How dumb are you anyway. Stop Lights. Do you know who invented the light bulb? Stop Lights are nothing more than a secondary implementation of another's invention.

God are you dumb.

Jack, I want the best doctor available performing the surgery... I could care less where he comes from.

The African paved the way as of matter of fact they were more resilient because they had less to work with than these fat lazy Americans.

Dude did some blk folks do you wrong? There no reasons to have that hate in your heart.

William Shakespeare
Isaac Newton
Albert Einstein

Care to take a wild guess what they all had in common?

Cracker Jack, C and B students rule the world. They have the genius IQ's working for them and the D and F students doing their menial labor.

So being of great IQ means greater chance of working for a C student running the company.

Jack, go watch a documentary called 'Hidden Colors' you'll learn something new that might astound you...

I told you guys the Fins were the bet yesterday. Pats were decimated with injuries and unmotivated for that game. Stick with me and you will make a small fortune.

Sam is impressed with the Stop Light. LOL. Sorry but that is a pretty shallow accomplishment. Kind of like a good recipe for brownies LOL.

unmotivated,lol yeah number one seed and a bye

Cracker Jack, les put it this way. Youre white right?

Now tell us your great accomplishments to "white society". Being voted most likely to succeed at your local Klan Rally does not qualify.

We're waiting?

99.999999% of the great minds in Science, Medicine, Music, and Math were white.

Is there really an argument here?

George Washington Carver???? LMAO. No contest.

I forgot literature. Let's compare the list of great white authors with great black authors. LOL. Does the word Slaughter come to mind?

How many famous symponies and operas were written by coongas? 0 maybe? LOL

Good night fellas. Im out... dusty, you'll regret wanting the Ravens there way more physical than the Bengals

What a shame. This great list does not include "Cracker Jack". My money says it never will. You even stole your screen name from KRAFT.

Can we add COPYRIGHTS infringement to your list of great accomplishments?

Well, whites make the best QB's because they have the smarts.

truth wont regret it cause we will never know, ravens suck and wont make playoffs


Just wanted to pass along something you will appreciate, Vagisil works wonders on sore buttholes.

Speaking of the very high intellect of the "white male". More than enough has been said.

Very few can escape their circumstances, Hardin. Fortunately and thanks to some Great Men, this Country is now giving opportunities to People that before never had them. And you are seeing the results.

Sam you are clutching at straw. Not even a nice try.

I never said all whites were geniuses. I never said I was. I was only pointing out historical evidence that can't be argued with.

Also you trite uneducated bongos fail to see I said the vast majority. Sure their are exceptions, just highly rare.

What a snoozefest this gam is. I predict someone makes a mistake and actually wins.

Posted by: Cracker Jack | December 16, 2013 at 11:02 PM

History only according to you. You omit so much and focus only on that which would make your flawed case.

Let's compare shall we...between blacks and whites the number of great achievements:

in medical science
in great architects
in great composers
in great authors
in great scientists
in great painters
in great authors

Gee did I leave anything out?

Either way it is an absolute blowout.

Bank robbery would sound like a great occupation when leaving out some very important details. Like going to prison for one.


Prison, what are they 93% black or 97% black?


Ross/Ireland would never have a black QB.

Take away all the great achievements of whites and we'd be in the Stone Age, Take away all the great achievements of blacks and nobody would even notice. LOL.

Cracker Jack, you are far to focused on American/Euro history. You can find just as many of these tings in other world cultures.

Outside of American/Euro history, the rest of the world could give a rats ass less about this list.

Did you also know that Europeans were a scattered tribe of Neanderthals before being CIVILIZED under their conquerors from Rome? Rome did Europeans a great favor by conquering the then known world.

Wasn't for that we Europeans may still be a loose unorganized band of tribal barbarians.

Now, many of us whites only act like an educated band of neandethal barbarians. There's usually daily proof right here in these blogs.

Beginning with your pathetic post Cracker Jack. It's good that all whites do not lower themselves such as those like you.

I'm out, can not train garbage not to stink. Good night good people.

Yes, avoiding all the factual evidence is a solution. Another option would be to stick your head in the stand.

How many of you honestly would trade the advancements made by whites in the arts and sciences with those of the blacks???

A rough guess would be ZERO.

That would be like trading Manhattan for a box of beads!

Well I'm going to treat myself now to some Angel Food cake with vanilla ice cream :)

Some of you have been so brainwashed into being politically correct that you are willing to shun reality.

Not me.

Good Night.

Lions take lead!

Good night good people.

People who say they are leaving never do!

I am well in favor of opportunity for all men. I am more in favor of EQUAL opportunity for all men.
I think as long as there is any favoritism, that favoritism is a detriment. As long as any people are favored in any system, the people favored are promote to becoming apathetic, complacent and expecting of preferred treatment.
The less entitled will always recognize their diminished position. This will result in an antagonistic response. This will result in a loop that will continue.

hardon dry is full of malaprops.

F'ing Matt Stafford


How dumb are you anyway. Stop Lights. Do you know who invented the light bulb? Stop Lights are nothing more than a secondary implementation of another's invention.

God are you dumb.

fins elimination game sunday now, if they lose and ravens and cincy win we are done

dusty let's dwell on the worst possibilities and hope we die.

This is the real Dashi.


Stop believing that Bull Cubans have been slinging in Miami for years.

I don't hate Cubans but I'm tired of the BS!!

Every Cuban that came off a boat is either an engineer or a Doctor. Or owned a big store in Cuba. BS!! How come they can't build better rafts.

I know they want to blame Fidel, but Cuba hasn't been prosperous in over 50 years. He can't take all the blame for that.

Seriously!! When are we going to stop believing the Cuban Propaganda Machine?

I understand other Cubans believing Fidel's BS. They love his BS, they still thinks he is alive. But other people from other countries don't have to fall for that Propaganda.

Ask anybody in Miami who isn't Cuban what they think about the average intelligence of a Cuban and most will laugh at you.

Cubans are the Rednecks of the Caribbean. Dumb and Racist like a MotherFukkka!!!

Notice Cubans only come in 2 Colors. White or Dark Black. Rarely see any mixing of the races going on in Q'uba!!

And the Whites that are in Cuba are descendants of Gallegos. Which are considered the dumbest people from Spain. Look it up. Just ask any Cuban you know what a Gallegos is and watch them make an ugly face like you know something about them they never wanted anyone to find out.

So all that talk about being descendant of highly intelligent people is just a hoax to distract us from the truth.

And I can understand how people like Oscar stand up for Cowards like J.Martin. They have never stood up for nothing in their life.

Heck, Cubans didn't even liberate their own country. A Dominican had to liberate Cuba from Spain. That's the Truth. Look it up.

Maximo Gomez. They wanted to make him the First President of Cuba, but he refused because he said a president should be born in the country he will lead.

Again, I don't hate Cubans. And have stated before that I have family that is Cuban. But I am just tired of this Pompous Holier than Thou attitude most Miami Cubans have.

I say Miami Cubans because I have met Cubans from other parts of this country and they are some of the nicest most humble people you will ever meet.

Dominica Republic is the most mal nourished country in the Western Hemisphere. Not exactly a hotbed of high thought going on there.

Dominica Republic shares an island with the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Poor + mal nourished does not leave much room for bragging rights.

The girls in Dominica are cheap, but their diseases are expensive. And 9 out of 10 are dogs.


You have a point on one thing. Race doesn't matter in how intelligent you can become. What matters is your socioeconomic status.

Black, White, Green, Purple, and Yellow. It doesn't matter your skin color what matters is how rich you are.

I was watching a documentary on the Koch Bros. Where it states that the goal of the 1% is to keep the poor uneducated. Reason we don't have public Universities like most countries. And part of the main reason they want privatize the school system. If you can't pay to go to school then how will you learn.

It is a Monarch way of thinking. Only the rich should be allowed to learn to read and write. That way the Poor stay dumb and oblivious to how the world truly works.

Fidel did the same thing with Cuba. If he doesn't allow people to gain real knowledge, How can he ever get a real opposition. All the Cubans that had a bit of intelligence were either exiled or put in Jail. Now this new generation doesn't know any better. All they know is Fidel.

Real Tough behind that Keyboard Buddy.

Run your mouth like that in real life to a Dominican or a Haitian and watch you get stomped out. Look it up!!

And the truth is the truth.

While you are making up this BS like a Good little Cuban. Dashi is hitting you with the truth.

And don't get me started on how diseased filled and dumb Cuban woman are. On top of that Ugly. When was the last time Cuba won a beauty pageant?

And please explain how a person can be born in the USA and still have a Spanish accent. It is like they teach kids in Miami to speak English with a Cuban Accent. WTF!!

I take the ugly part back. Because even a garbage can gets a steak. But you Cubans have Zero Style. It is like you buy your clothes at the Dollar store.

Notice you never see a Nail Salon or Hair Salon in a Cuban Neighborhood they like their woman to look rough. Like they roll cigars all day.

Please defend your accusation of my usage of a malaprop.

And let's not talk about malnourished. The Average Dominican is Taller and Heavier than the Average Cuban. Plus, DR sells food to Cuba, not the other way around. So how are Dominicans malnourished and Cubans are not.

I've heard stories from Cubans from the Island. About how they had to boil the bottom of dress shoes and eat it like it was a piece of steak. Or How they do the same thing with the skin of Grapefruit because Fidel doesn't give them enough money for real meat.

Fidel has Cubans working the Farms with Donkeys because he doesn't want to spend on diesel fuel for farm equipment. The Herald ran that story last year.

But yeah, keep insulting those Beautiful Dominican woman with Cinnamon Skin.

Roll on

FUnny debate between Cuba and DR. Kind of like a rat and a cockroach fighting over who is superior.
