Tyson Clabo: Wells report not 'accurate'

Before the Wells report was released players in the Dolphins locker room almost universally defended what was going on within the confines of meeting rooms and closed practices and off-limit lunch rooms and other areas.

Since the Wells report peeled back the curtain on what happened in those areas -- specifically that people were being bullied and verbally abused, according to the report -- players such as John Denney and Ryan Tannehill have continued to defend the Dolphins locker room.

Add offensive tackle Tyson Clabo to that group. Clabo, a thoughtful veteran who joined the Dolphins in 2013, read the report and said today on SiriusXM NFL radio he doesn't believe the Wells report is accurate.

"I don't think the people that were around those situations, that were in that report, feel that was an accurate portrayal of the spirit of those events," Clabo said. "Those things in that report probably happened, I mean there were some that I wasn't there for, so I can't say for sure. But I don't see that there was, you know, harassment for the sake of harassment.

"No one is trying to hurt anyone's feelings. It's just, I don't know, it's a locker room. It's a situation that people in the every day won't understand. So when they read that report it's difficult for them to comprehend what goes on every day."

Clabo defended people the report made to look poorly. He defended offensive line coach Jim Turner, who the report said sometimes saw his players chide Jonathan Martin. The report also states Turner sometimes laughed and joined in.

Clabo defended trainer Kevin O'Neill, who the report states was aware of abuse of an assistant trainer and did not report it.

Both Turner and O'Neill were fired by Dolphins owner Stephen Ross.

"I feel bad for coach Turner, for Kevin O'Neill, those are the guys I really feel bad for because Jim Turner is one of the best football coaches I've had the pleasure of being around and for him to lose his job over that whole thing is unfortunate for him and his family," Clabo said.

Interestingly, Clabo doesn't feel quite so bad about Martin (neither do most Dolphins players, which is the reason he's never playing for the Dolphins again) but wishes his fellow tackle would have handled his troubles differently.

"I've been in a lot of situations, I've been in the league a long time, and when I was here and what I saw ... I saw two guys who were buddies," Clabo said of the Martin-Richie Incognito relationship. "And really the thing that I wished had happened is I wished [Martin] had come to us and said, 'Hey I'm having a problem.' Then we could have worked it out. But that wasn't the path he took and this is what happened and there's nothing you can do about it. You just have to move forward. And that's what I'm going to do. And I hope that's what people who were affected by this are going to do. And at the end of the day, you have to be wiser and learn from this."

Clabo is scheduled to be a free agent on March 11. I'm told he would like to return to Miami but obviously will go elsewhere if the Dolphins move in a different direction -- which it looks like they want to do. Clabo, who will be 33 years in October old but expects to play in 2014, says it's too bad if the Dolphins decide to make decisions on getting rid of some people based on the harassment scandal. 

"If it's time for me to go somewhere else, then that's what I'll do," he said. "Whenever you have a situation like this it's kind of unprecendented and everybody feels they have to throw the baby out with the bath water. And that's fine. Coach Philbin is a good man, a good football coach. He'll get it figured out."

Love Love Love Clabo!

Not for nothing but he's not the 1st to question the veracity of this report which I skimmed through and if you read pages 6 through 20 sounds like the Dolphins were a real disfunctional mean-spirited group which preyed on one another to say the very least. Glad the players are giving there perspective which goes more or less with what I thought. I don't and never will buy Honey Suckles interpretation.

lol

That's the bottom line, really. Yes, Incognito & Co. are Neanderthal throwbacks. Yes, the coaching staff shouldn't have encouraged extreme conduct.

But Martin wasn't a scared jr-high kid whom we could agree was understandably afraid to speak up. He's a grown man who behaves like a scared jr-high kid.

IOW, as Martin himself appears from the Wells report to admit (at least some of the time), he has a mental problem, and he needs to own up to it & quit acting like it was the team's duty to serve as his psychiatric therapist.


he needs to own up to it & quit acting like it was the team's duty to serve as his psychiatric therapist.

Agreed!

F4L,

I have agreed with everything you have said. Reason I can't even respond to it. What more could I add.

What I think it is, people tend to believe Underdog stories happen all the time.

Yeah, some teams catch lightning in a bottle. But more times than not, the teams that dominate are a complete team. They have players at every position.

70s Steelers and Dolphins
80s 49ers
90s Cowboys
00s Pats

These were complete teams. When the Pats were winning SBs, Tom Brady wasn't even the 10th best player on the team. The Kicker was better than him.

I want to add to the "Marino Discussion"

He had 147 career Wins: More than Unitas, Montana, Starr, Fouts, Aikman, Bradshaw, Moon & Starbauch.

He played with some solid Olineman: Dellenbach, Stephenson (5 pro bowls), Sims (3 pro bowls), and Webb (7 pro bowls).

Here are some highlights/facts from an article I found on this topic:

...a little research regarding the 17 Super Bowl winning teams during Dan Marino's career. I noticed that there were two things that stuck out almost every time. Most of those teams had a 1,000 yard rusher and most teams had a top 10 defense. I hit the books and totaled the frequencies.

13 out of the 17 teams possessed a 1,000 yard rusher.

16 out of the 17 teams had a Top-10 ranked defense.

Meanwhile, Marino played with a 1,000 yard rusher only once during his 17 seasons. He played with a top-10 defense in only four out of his 17 seasons.

That means that in 94-percent of the time his was without a 1,000 yard rusher and 76-percent of the time he was without a top-10 ranked defense. That is not a lot of backup in my mind. Especially when 76-percent of the Super Bowl teams had a 1,000 yard rusher and 94-percent of them had a Top-10 defense.

To think that Dan Marino was as productive as he was without a running game to balance the passing game and without a defense to balance the offense is beyond logic. That makes his statistics far more impressive then other quarterbacks who had the benefit of a running game and defense to lean on.

Defenses knew Marino was going to throw instead of run—and still couldn't stop him. Often even in games where Miami needed to score early and often just to have a chance (because their defense was so poor), he couldn't be stopped.

It wasn't like he was getting all that much help in the passing game either. In his 17 seasons, he only played with three Pro Bowl receivers (Mark Clayton, Mark Dupper, and Irving Fryar).

F4L,

Soliai and Starks are Average now, I agree that I don't think as highly of them as I once use to.

Is it me or did they quit last year?

It looked like they were just going thru the motions?

I agree that the coaching has a lot to do with it. I believe the wrong coordinator was fired, COYLE SUCKS!! I guess since Sherman was responsible for setting that type of atmosphere on the offense. And he should've taken the Training Wheels off Tannehill and had him scramble more, cause of the bad O-line.

BUT

COYLE SUCKS!!

JPAO,

Great explanation on how it takes a team to win a Superbowl. Not just one player.

Even if that one player is Dan Marino.

Clabo speaks the truth.

McKinnie Spoke the Truth.

J.Martin is to blame.

He should've spoke to his teammates. His Coaches. The player Rep. All that should've been done before he just walks out on the team.

I don't care how Artistic you are.

Philbin did hire a good Offensive Coordinator.

Coyle did a great job. Our D was near SB caliber last season and kept us in most games while the offense floundered. Stopping Andrew Luck was amazing. Coyle should/could be HC when Philbin gets fired.

Guys, PLEASE stop feeding the homers and they will leave.

That is a very good post and I agree with every word! Was trying to make the same argument about the balance he had to work with but you said it better!

Dashi,

I believe you and I have been waiting for the Coyle issue to be addressed since the day after the Reg. Season ended!! How many times during last Season were we on talking about the D's collapse under the DB Coach whose Coordinator hat is to big!! I have come to the conclusion that Coyle possesses Jedi mind control and has everybody in Davie under his Sith like spell! It blows my mind at the pass he's getting!

I thinks Wells had his orders from the NFL beforehand what he was to find and put in the report. It's like when a big pharmaceutical company pays for a clinical trial and study - it's going to be biased and you can't trust anything in it.

Mass: yeah, I'm a lawyer, and my reaction was, thank god for the adversarial system. I would've liked to see two reports by opposing sides and an arbitrator's sifting them.

What would a different psychologist, hired by Incognito, have said about Martin's behavior? Etc.

(Of course, that would have cost 3x as much, but hey, lawyers gotta eat too.)

Jonathan Martin = The sorriest piece of crap ever to put on a Dolphins uniform.

Tedd Ginn = a very distant second (just because he was soft).

Dashi,

I'm not giving Solia and Starks a pass for quitting and yes they played like they were simply going through the motions. There collective effort in Tampa alone made me want to blow chunks all over the TV but feel these guys just don't trust the Coaches or the process and they didn't look to be alone with the flat efforts to close with the Post-Season on the line! Watch out for a Randy Starks popping up in S.F. to help Justin Smith carry the load up front or maybe even in G.B. were there DL needs the tweaking!


Clabo speaks the truth.

McKinnie Spoke the Truth.

J.Martin is to blame.


Posted by: Dashi | February 27, 2014 at 11:55 AM


I find it interesting that these players making comments have zero dog in that fight making them more credible. Character witnesses in the coming litigation?

TannePuke ranked 37th in yards per pass attempt. He's just horrible. But the'll waste another season with him just like they did with Henne, Ireland, and Sporano.

Posted by: Anderson | February 27, 2014 at 12:03 PM

I got a feeling this is faaaar from over. I know that the Trainer is going to sue for wrongful termination and feel Incognito may go the route with the team and Martin as well. Some of Ross's maneuvering with NYU ect... on the surface looks a bit like a ploy to distance himself and his team somewhat from the landmark trials/litigation coming his way were his team, as the face of the NFL in this instance is dragged into a lose-lose situation from a PR stand point!

I believe the Martin's (Mommy and Daddy) might not be done either with there ability to spin this gaining sympathy for their (supposedly) mentally ill son who was victimized by a Co-Worker aware of his frail make-up. I think in honesty this only gets avoided by cutting Martin (were he collects the guaranteed money owed him or 955K) and he's free to join Luck, Pep Hamilton and Fleener in Indy. The more you look at it the only 100% loser here is the Org. which will be dragged through the mud and will have a split public perception of their actions no matter what road they take in this.

Armando,

Baby ass Martin has affected and possibly destroyed a lot of careers. And to make it worse our dumb ass owner is planning to meet with him and kiss his ass some more.

Incognitabrain was a bad apple.

Marino sucked a s s, he was a loser. People who defend him know jack about the game of football.

No running game because his technique handing the ball off was poor.

No running game because he refused to stick with the running game.

Tom Brady showed that he's a team player because he handed the ball of in 2013, got his team to the AFC Championship game.

John Elway won two Super Bowls handing the ball to Terrell Davis.

Dan ? He'd audible away from a 3rd and 1 running play to heave the ball thirty five yards down the field.

Dan audibled away from a running play in a 10-3 playoff game against Pete Carroll's Patriots in 1997.

He threw a pick six, 17-3 Patriots, game over.

J.J. took away his right to audible.

Intellectually challenged Dan Marino sulked for the next two years.

Selfish attitude, Dan was a loser.

8-10 in the playoffs.

Phins had no running game because of Dan.

They had no defense because they had no running game.

Dan Marino was a cancer.

John Riggins averaged only three yards per carry through three quarters against The Killer Bee's defense in the 82' Super Bowl.

His two and three yard runs became six and seven yard runs in the fourth.

We saw it with Ricky Williams when he was here.

The running game usually doesn't work in the 1st half of games, it takes patience and repetition.

Hissy fit Dan had no patience, he was both selfish and dumb.

J.J. when he retired from The Dolphins : "If you don't have a running game, you don't have a team."

That was directed at Danny Loser.

His supporters are idiots.

End of discussion.

Just Saying,

Maybe so. But EVERY Dolphins player questioned has come forward and said that Incognito was a good team mate.
NO ONE has said that about that sorry ass Martin.

By all means, I hope to see Martin as Luck's LT. I hope we play the Colts every season that Martin's lining up in that spot.

After Luck's 50th sack, dumbass haters like the ones who post here will be all over what a terrible QB Luck is, according to some cherry-picked stat.

It wont be long before Jonathan Martin will be recognized as a hero for cleaning up the racism and harrassment of all minorities...in the NFL...and even other sports. Players will be able to concentrate on their work without racism or bullying or harrassment.

You forgot McKinnie also defended the locker room Armando on NFL radio...


Wally, chances are everybody read the same thing. Rather than take up blog space, just post the link.

Posted by: Thanks | February 26, 2014 at 08:44 PM

i didn't know we were running low????

When will J. Martin day become a national holiday. I am sure Obama is on it already.....

SPARE ME THIS MACHO B.S. THAT NONE OF THIS TRUE…THE NFL IS GOVERNED BY THE LAWS THAT OVERSEE ALL OF AMERICAN WORKPLACE, WHICH IS THE SAME RULES THAT GOVERNS THE NFL AS WELL. INTERESTING HOW WE BLAME THE VICTIM, THE ONLY ONE WHO HAD THE COURAGE TO EXPOSE THE DYSFUNCTION THAT IS A SORRY EXCUSE FOR A FOOTBALL ORGANIZATION.

BUNCH OF NEANDERTHALS...


End of discussion.

Posted by: FIRE ROSS | February 27, 2014 at 12:21 PM

Your making 2 different arguments here!

1st off back in 96 we were all so psyched to see the pairing of JJ and Marino that everybody failed to see what a BAD MARRAIGE it actually was in terms of philosophy.

JJ started his career at Okla St. were he trail blazed throwing all over the field and stuck to his guns when he arrived at the U but learned his lesson well about playing with balance in the 85 Nat'l Champ. Fiesta Bowl game Vs. Penn St.

Testaverde had thrown 6 picks in that game but a super human D effort had us in it late with 2 Minutes and change when we get the ball back inside our 20 yardline and we ride Alonzo Highsmith down to a 1st and goal at the 4 when inexplicably JJ lets Testaverde throw 4 straight passes with the 4th down pass getting picked in the endzone by future Bills LB Shane Conlan.

JJ never forgot the lesson about riding your star QB cause it caused him a Title and from then on the U played with balance. He took it to Dallas were Aikman never threw more than 25 passes a game.

You then look at Marino and you can sum up his career with Shula in one turning point game Vs. the Raiders in 84 (one of 2 losses that Yr.) After taking our 1st loss that Season in S.D. in week-11 because we couldn't convert a 4th down play late in regulation Shula kicked the tired on a Coked out Pete Johnson.

In week-14 Vs. (the then) L.A. Raiders he hands it off to Johnson on a critical goaline play before the half were he's stopped short and the half expires because we had no T.O.'s Then in the 2nd half with under 2 minutes to go the missed opportunity kills Miami when Marcus Allen takes a 4th and 2 carry and goes yard for a 50 plus TD. We lose the game but Shula understanding what his team was which was an old vet team he rode to the SB Vs. Washington were washed up. The LB's deadly slow as Roger Craig exposed and the 3 headed monster at RB of Woody Bennett, Nathan, Johnson (Andrea Franklin was hurt) couldn't gain a Ft. on short yardage much less a Yd.!

JJ was right about what it took to win Titles but it was Shula's philosophy that set the table for what Marino believed. When Dan came in to the League Shula was a take o prisoner H.C. who would have handed him his A S S if he did it any other way than his. The reality is it was a lack of talent and circumstance that sets what Marino ended up being in motion and that catalist was Shula!! By the time JJ and Dan are paired you have to strong personalities going head to head and it just wasn't ever going to work.

Hey, the Wells report verified that the harrassment, racism, and discrimination was in fact true.

What is the going rate in FA for pro-bowl caliber Centers? I am curious what it would cost for the Fins to go after Mack from the Browns.

Texas, my guess for Mack would be around 7-8 million a year. Jason Kelce of the Eagles signed for 6.25 mil a year today. Mangold signed for about 7.7 mil a year before I think.

Centers don't break the bank as much as left tackles, so I think 7-8 is a good guess. These estimates might be a bit low since I'm hoping Miami gets him so maybe 7-9 is a better range.

Thanks NeMo,

I wasn't sure if it'd be worth going after but IMO I would hit his agent up come March 8th.

A few things from reading the blog a bit earlier that I don't have time to reply on.

I'm really hoping Hickey can get Grimes signed to a fair deal for all parties. I mean he wants to be here, team leader, continuity and good scheme fit, no state income tax for him. I'd make it a 4 year deal with 2 years (ages 31 and 32) guaranteed.

Plus it sends a good message to the team and other free agents. We signed him to a prove it deal, he proved it, he likes it here, we paid him. It could be a good message to other free agents.

lol

Resign Clabo to another 1 year deal. Draft RT and compete.

is it really believable/realistic that Martin felt like he couldnt confide in ANYBODY in that locker room?50+ players.....numerous coaches, trainers, staff....many with good reputations/professional (Sherman, O'Neill and others)--60, 70, 80 people, and he wasnt comfortable talking to ANY of them? People and the media are saying "whats that say about the Fins locker room?"....but they have it backwards....."whats that say about J Martin?"--sounds like he was/is so emotionally stressed/damaged, that I'm not sure he would've found peace, or that person to talk to, in ANY teams locker room.

u just
new that pix six
was a commin'
from dan choke
.
lol

well thats a real news flash, Insider....with all the degenerate behavior/language, arrests, etc....leaguewide.....you needed the Wells report to tell you that?

Benz, very good point. I'm glad Clabo, McKinnie, Denney, and others are speaking out about this.

Say what you want about Clabo, but he is a pro at least. When McKinnie can in he was benched. Then Martin left, so he started again and at least did decent. Guy had the same troubles as Martin, but handled it like a pro should.

It is all due to the word Bully. A word that should only be associated with children. What grown man wants any words that end in "Y" associated with him? besides Martin, and his mommY. Use harrassed, or picked on? maybe. I dont know. Bully is such a BS term for anyone who has finished high school.

I nthe report even J Marty's dad was trying to nicely tell him to man th efkk up. But he knows the mommY is in control in the Marty household.

agree nemo....I'm glad some of these guys are speaking out....obviously Incognito is an degenarate bear, but the fact that Martin couldnt find anyone to talk to about this is more an indictment of him than the entire locker room, in my opinion--especially now that some of his past has come to light--cant tell me that every one on the roster is a degenerate, unapproachable....I dont buy it....Hartline, Grimes, TH, D Thomas, Gibson....Long, Bush and Burnett last year....what, NONE of these guys are normal/reasonable enough to approach and talk to?

sanchez in p/o's > dan choke

O'Neill was just named Trainer of the Year, was a long tenured employee--Kacy Rodgers is intense but is considered professional and seems to get positive feedback....same with Mike Sherman, like him or not as as the OC.....Wake, Soliai and Odrick seem to be highly regarded, respected....didnt think he could talk to any of these guys?--its almost impossible to believe...

You know you really bring up an interesting point because I'll toss another name at you if the Big-Bad Football guys were to intimidating then why didn't he turn to Dawn Aponte?? I'm being serious here!! It was widely reported that she was at practice every week this last Season.

If he couldn't talk to anybody from the G.M. to his H.C. then why didn't he go to the one person everybody knew had both the Owner and H.C.'s ear and is a woman which usually makes it easier on a guy when discussing sensative issues. All the back-n-forth about Aponte aside she looks like an approachable woman if based on appearance.

A player said it like it is...WOW. The report, the incident, the media and JMart have always been full of shyte. Tell me something I didn't already know.

Himalaya by Creed


Cooling icy citrus with a peppery woody background, creating a dichotomy of both modern and traditional. Dries down into a cedar base with excellent musk, ambergris and sandalwood notes perfectly blended together. Classy, sophisticated, versatile. Best for spring, but great for any season. Can be worn by both a young man and a gentleman alike. Any man can wear this and there is no age barrier.

The one big downside to this fragrance is performance. The projection and longevity of this fragrance aren't up to par with the standards of other fragrances of this category. For a fresh summer fragrance, maybe, but for a woody-oriental, no. Also, compared to other fragrances of the Creed house, this fragrance stands out as a weaker link, and you might be better off getting the other Creed fragrances first.

Still though, the positives outweigh the negatives and Himalaya has a lot to offer. Try this one for youself.

THIS TEAM HAS NOT HAD A LEADER SINCE PENNINGTON! We don't need to waste our first round pick on an o lineman that will need at least one full year to get acclimated with not only the NFL but the other lineman on the unit. Phins need to bring in a player that will be a leader from day one. Draft CJ Mosley and move Ellerbe to the outside. He can only move in one direction anyway. Stick Wheeler on nickel coverage or special teams and try to get some value out of Wheeler before it becomes financially viable for miami to cut him

not a bad thought THED.....but there already seem to be some injury/durability concerns with Mosley.....plus sounds like Zach Martin checks all the character/leadership boxes as well--can play OG or OT....fills a much bigger need with similar skill and intangibles (lets hope he's still there at 19)

Tell Mr.Clabo that it is a different Time, a different Culture. We might sympathize with him but we must travel with our Future in mind.
