Ok then the joke is on us ?

Nah ~im not buying that, we still took the best DT and the best Lt in FA's. Moreno was also a really nice signing to be fair.

The negative stuff is there thats true, but with Lazor, we may well have something. Philbin gets the axe and Lzor may well get the HC job if his O can work well. Look it cant be worse than what we had last season..... can it ?????

I'll flip that convo on you, if you took the Top-10 picks of the 2013 draft in placed them in this draft I believe nobody goes were they were taken and some take a big tumble Rd-1. For starters neither Fisher nor Joekel could hold Robinson or Lewan's jock.

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

LOL! Absolutely and this just begs the comment: Look what Ireland chose to do........? WTF........?

He decides to trade up, in what most knew was a very weak draft class. Especially the top 15 to 20!

No offense to Dion Jordan. I believe that once he gets settled and gets some experience, he will be a Star! I'm just trying to point out the weird strategies that Ireland employed while here.

PS: I agree Fin4, I would take Robinson and probably Lewan over any of the tackles taken in the 1st round of last years draft.

Okay...my deepest belief...we could draft Superman in the 1st, and without a better O-line, even he couldn't make a difference !!!!!

Posted by: Buster | April 09, 2014 at 04:23 PM
.
Seahawks O-line is alot worse then the Dolphins barbies eH? AND HOW DID THEY FINISH THE SEASON eH?. stop making excuses for that pencil neck POS You MORON Homers call a QB who is a WR masquerading as a QB eH. Damn You MORON HOMERS, DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL eH?

Please someone enlighten me, what exactly has Lazor accomplished?

Or is it that you find he has a cool namer that rhythms with Razor?

You know QB coaches do not call plays, that is the OC job, like Failbin in GB.....oh wait bad example, my bad

IT'S THE QB YOU FKN MORONS eH?

I hear Moses might come our way, maybe Jesus tags along and ten maybe, just maybe we can make the playoffs

Marco, we already had the best DT in FA and we lost him. So no points for u

JAJAJAJAJAJAJ eH?

Ape is correct again. However my dear friend Philbin is as weak as Thill yes ?

Bill A has MIT to suckle power from I have the Ape !!!

yes we already know ireland was the worst gm in nfl history

Marco, we already had the best DT in FA and we lost him. So no points for u

Ha ha ha. We got Mitchell cheaper and younger than big bad Cam Cameron Paul !!!

Posted by: ExposingThe Fraud | April 09, 2014 at 06:09 PM

you forgot Albert....

JJAJAJAAJJ Marco,how are you?,if you read back which is always comical the stupid homers have been taking a beating from the non-homers and yes, I sort of feel sorry for the delusional homers that they are so lost when it comes to the team WE LOVE SO MUCH and hate sometimes eH?

Even the clueless old fool knew Sherman needed to be fired, but Failbin still resisted, right there all kinds all alarms, horns and whistles should have gone off in his head
Heck even the I know nothing didn't do it

So what would it take? Is it that we are stuck with Failbin for life?

Personally, I think the witch and those private trips to NYC are behind this?

Which brings me to another fool, the Witch's husband

Marco, if you are right, then Odrick isgoingto be a monster this year

However, memo to Mitchell, start making yourself good and stop being so nice to your teammates, just saying, you know

Gogo, who is the flat chested ones husband eH?

Guys, The DEFENCE isn't the problem and hasn't been since the Shula days eH?

Not sure yet Ape, but am searching

However,he may not be such afool after all, I mean yes, the horns are not nice, but I bet Tootsie's girls help him out, know what I mean

PS: I agree Fin4, I would take Robinson and probably Lewan over any of the tackles taken in the 1st round of last years draft.

As bad as the Raiders Org. has been since around 04 (when Big Al started to lose his noodle R.I.P) I doubt you would have pried the 3rd overall selection of the 2014 draft (I know they hold 5th this Yr. just making a point) for a 2nd Rd selection to move back to 12. In this draft that 3rd overall pick has FRANCHISE PLAYER potential which I don't feel the 2013 Top-15 had collectively.

If Bortles goes #1 overall and Clowney #2 then in this draft that 3rd overall pick is a pick'em between Robinson, Watkins, Mack. If the Rams shock all and take Robinson @2 then your 3rd overall pick is Clowney who can play DE in the 4/3 or OLB in the 3/4 in L.T. like fashion if he wants to! As much as the "EXPERTS" look to blow holes in his game before the draft I'm here to tell you that I respectfully believe that he has H.O.F.'er written all over him if he truly wants it!

I do not see the same thing in our guy from last Yr. nor do I believe we pry that pick for one 2nd Rd selection.As SOLID as we all hope D.J. can be I sincerely find his talents wasted in the 4/3 JMO and one that could sting at some point if he ends up elsewhere in his career in a base 3/4. A Pro Bowl player J.T. type if he dedicates himself but Clowney in either D has L.T. (as in G.O.A.T.) POTENTIAL if he dedicates and there is the diff. between this draft and last Yrs. in a nutshell!

The Thills are the most disgusting couple on earth since Posh and David Beckham !!!

The lowest of the low in role models for the young homers !!!

Ape is the only man on hear that speaks the truth, WITHOUT FAIL !!!

Solia was good for the 3-4 defense as a Nose Tackle. In a 4-3 like ours, he was average at best. He almost never got pressure on the QB. Way too immobile for a 4-3 Defensive Tackle.

I believe Earl Mitchell will prove to be one of our better "Pick Ups" when it's all said and done. He plays the run well and has **The Speed** to get after the QB up the middle. Something Solia almost never did.

The other obviously good pick up is Louis Delmas. For all his problems, for all the negative things you want to say, the bottom line is this: He is miles above Chris Clemons.

That's it in a nutshell and it cannot be denied. Delmas makes Clemons look like a lost little puppy. If for no other reason than this, our secondary will be MUCH......**MUCH BETTER** than it was with Chris Clemons.

Marco,the STUPID HOMERS HATE ME AND LOVE ME at the same time,go figure eH? JAJAJAJAJ eH?

AND EVEN ON CHANNEL 7 BUT HE DOESNT GET THAT IN CANADA BUT HE DOES THE OTHER STATONS. IT SHOWED IT VERY CLEAR!!!

That's it in a nutshell and it cannot be denied. Delmas makes Clemons look like a lost little puppy. If for no other reason than this, our secondary will be MUCH......**MUCH BETTER** than it was with Chris Clemons.

Posted by: odinseye | April 09, 2014 at 07:32 PM

Hi Odin I'm glad you are around here again, I hope you are well.

I had to disagree a bit, Delmas is not durable, and Clemons is serviciable, and not injuered prone. I prefeer Clemons, over Delmas for that reason only.

If there are any way to keep Delmas healty, of course Delmas is much better.

Posted by: Marc | April 09, 2014 at 07:38 PM

He will never get it for F*cks sake !!!

Thill believes less in himself then your best friend from Canada.

My God, what a bunch of dreary halfwits here.

Look Simon and Garfunkel made it work, but Thill and Thillbin will never take 4 days to hitch hike from saginaw !!!

For starters neither Fisher nor Joekel could hold Robinson or Lewan's jock.

Posted by: fin4life | April 09, 2014 at 05:13 PM

Neither of those guys were worth their draft status, like many other first round lineman over the last 5 years.

So how do you know the hype on this years lineman is any more valid? We don't. Every draft we think we know who really are the good players and we forget it rarely pans out that way.

Posted by: odinseye | April 09, 2014 at 07:32 PM

My only concern here is that Delmas has been in his career a F.S. and given injury history were he's best suited to stay given you don't want him at 5'11"/202 Pds up around the line at S.S. Yet what the team needs is a true S.S. to finally shore up the D-Backfield. Everybody knocked R.Jones play in 2013 but it bares mentioning that Jones played F.S. in 2012 were he excelled finally shedding his NCAA problems of over persuing and became a solid centerfielder.

In 2013 it escapes everyone that we flipped Clemmons and Jones from S.S. to F.S. because Clemmons was getting run over in run-D at S.S. Now we bring in another F.S. who really isn't suited for S.S. meaning we lose Jones again at S.S. were I don't feel he looks comfortable up close to the line while losing his D in pass coverage on the back end. For this reason I like a player like LSU's Craig Loston in the Middle Rds in what amounts to a need since Y.Bell got old.

Loston who I've seen play could be that thumper we need at 220 Pds yet will require sometime to develope and the reason I was upset on us passing on Tim McDonald's kid TJ last Yr. out of USC who fell to Rd-4 were we took a player to develope in J.Jenkins over a player who I felt had the size and range out of College for his position without alot of tweaking, JMO!

Well maybe next Yr. we can take TJ's little Bro out of UCLA!

Fins4, missed tackles are still missed tackles no matter where you line up ?

WTF? WHY DO THE DOLPHIN BARBIES PLAY 6 PRESEASON GAMES Eh? 4 IN AUGUST AND 2 IN LATE DECEMBER Eh? jajajajaaj eH?
BTW Dumb homers. those last 2 in December 2013 COUNTED eH?.But as always YOU MORONS BRUSH THAT UNDER the Carpet as another EXCUSE FOR THole eH?

You never know what you get when you begin to pay people to perform at a Sport there supposedly passionate about but you can watch them in College on a field and rate what you see yourself and Vs. what level of competition.

Last Yr. you had a great athlete in E.Fisher but he played Div-2 NCAA ball and you wondered and it showed when placed Vs. better comp. Joekel is and will be a solid NFL LT a real Blue collar type but he isn't an elite talent.

G.Robinson played in the SEC and dominated which tells me he's up to the challenge of the NFL Day-1. His 4.92/40 is really moving for a 6'5"/335 Pd'er and the 33 reps were up there in Larry Allen air. So a quick, strong player who dominated the SEC? Vs. a player from Div-2 or a Blue Chipper lunch pale type in Joekel? You can answer that question for yourself, NO?

As far as the DE's go, well been watching Clowney since High School All Star game and I think he's that GENERATIONAL player that comes in about every 10 to 15 Yrs at a Pos. again you can agree or disagree time will tell but when in the 2013 draft your discussing Manti Te'o as the BEST LB Vs. K.Mack this Yr. and again to me there is no comparison or convo worth having, JMHO!


Fins4, missed tackles are still missed tackles no matter where you line up ?

Posted by: Marco | April 09, 2014 at 07:59 PM

No doubt but I get the feeling that neither one of our Safety's in either 2012 or 2013 wanted to be up around the line in Run Support at S.S. a big difference when your playing centerfield and see a Big RB or T.E. flash in front of you a handful of times at F.S. as opposed to doing the dirty work with the LB's in intermediate part of the field.

I like the Delmas pickup, we need a safety that can hit with authority, and a FS with some ball hawking instincts (not Clemmons). Jones at FS and Delmas at SS fits that bill.

Fin4,

Thanks for reaffirming my position. And putting it in an easy to understand format(unlike the way I said it-lol).

Also, I'm still in agreement with you on Dion Jordan. We've had quite a few conversations about it. I do believe he can be a very effective DE in the 4-3. But I still can't help thinking that his talents are being wasted there.

He has everything it takes to be a great OLB. Especially in the 3-4. That's my take on it anyways.

Darkoak @ 8:36

If the 3 stooges had signed a S with Delmas' pedigree back in 2008 or 2009 I would've been excited and optimistic.

But after all that has gone on the past 6 years I now expect every move to backfire.

Even so I cannot stop loving the team or this blog, in fact I like this blog more than I like the team.

I especially like the blog when it goes nuclear and that will happen by preseason game 3.

YOU SWORD SWALLOWERS NEED TO STICK TO WHAT YOU KNOW BEST:

If there are any way to keep Delmas healty, of course Delmas is much better.

Posted by: Adrian Solorza | April 09, 2014 at 07:45 PM
======================================================

Good point! I think that that's the only knock on Delmas. The only legitimate knock anyways.

Toe to toe, with both being healthy, I take Delmas over Clemons everytime. So, one can only hope that Delmas can finally shake the injury bug.

We still need a safety to develop that is versatile enough to step into either safety spot when needed. Anyone in the draft like that?

Yep Zack, but that uncertainty is what keeps it interesting. It's why we keep coming back every year. It's why it's grown into such a big Radio City Production.

If it was an exact science, 32 GM's and a Zillion Scouts would be in the unemployment line. It wouldn't be much more interesting than the announcement of our up coming schedule.

I for one say: Thank God "It Is What It Is".

Posted by: Bob | April 09, 2014 at 08:58 PM

Wow Bob can you now please breakdown every draft eligible safety in college and give us their strengths and weaknesses? Let me guess, your answer will be "No".

Fin4,

I know all the knocks on Delmas and I know a lot of people don't like him. But I still have to stick by statement that he'll bring more to the table than Clemon's ever did. I watched Delmas at Western Michigan where he looked like a man among boys and I watched a lot of him with the Lions. It's my own personal opinion, but I honestly believe he instantly upgrades our secondary.

You make a good point on the switching around of Jones and Clemons. Now with Delmas coming in, it made me wonder what was up as well. The only logical conclusion I could figure is that maybe Coyle plans on running more of a base cover two. Not sure what type of secondary he ran in the past, but this is all that came to mind.

Just the same, I can still see Jones playing Free Safety with Delmas at Strong. He might not have the prototypical size you look for, but the kid can lay the lead!

(I have seen Delmas listed at 5-11 and 208 in the past. I don't know if this is accurate or if it makes any difference. It would be nice to see him bulk up to 210 to 215 range without affecting his speed or athleticism)

Posted by: Darkoak | April 09, 2014 at 08:55 PM

Glad you asked been tracking the Position but here with exception of Loston am going on what I've read and seen on highlight reels which I'm not high on when rating what I see in a player but these seem to be the guys who'd fit our need which at the end is finally addressing the departure of Bell adequately.

The hitter in a So-So group is Deone Bucannon from what I've read and the tape out there on him. It would take our 2nd given I don't see this guy sliding into the mid 3rd. Later the guy I like is LSU's C.Loston who I've posted about and after there is a player from Baylor Ahmad Dixon who hits like a ton of bricks. All would be players worth keeping an eye on between Rds 2 to 4 and all are hitters who play S.S. but have range to flip given good speed.


I for one say: Thank God "It Is What It Is".

Posted by: odinseye | April 09, 2014 at 08:58 PM

It's all just a guess-timation and one I can't seem to get enough of. Great way of wording it for what it is and very true.

Fin4,

Have you checked out Jack Mewhort from Ohio State any?

Just wondering if you have and if so, what you think of him?

Posted by: odinseye | April 09, 2014 at 09:14 PM

I'm not knocking Delmas at all and have seen him in a few games myself will absolutely tattoo a player. As a matter of fact I believe your being kind in your comparison to Clemmons becaue to me there light Yrs. appart! My point is I hate to see him get hurt up at S.S. around the line behind the LB's. Our DB scheme hasn't shifted greatly under Coyle with exception when he goes zone and for whatever reason has his CB's giving up 10 Yd. cushions maybe it's a matter of talent and this Yr. he goes back to mare man which is what his Bengals DB's played. Can't remember a Zim D that played cover-2? Meaning we need that S.S. wh looks like a light LB.

Yes.

Jack Mewhort OT Ohio State.

40 Yd 20 Yd 10 Yd 225 Bench Vertical jump

5.37 - - 28 26

Broad Shuttle 3-Cone Drill

8'-5" 4.64 7.79

He played Right, then Left Tackle at Ohio State. The Talking Head consensus is that he projects perfectly as a Right Tackle. Maybe the best part, he could possibly last until the 3rd round.


Delmas has flop marked all over him. He won't last. The last thing this team needs is injury prone starters. He is not a big guy. He has heart, overplays, and destroys himself.

Let's not drink kool aid here. Maybe he is better than Clemons when on the field, but not when he is off it.

Posted by: odinseye | April 09, 2014 at 09:24 PM

Of course watched the Ohio (notice I didn't add St.) game Vs. Michigan! Enjoyed it and thought the Wolverines got one and came close. Always want Ohio to lose since the fact some back judge jobbed my Canes in 02 BCS Game! Also caught the game Vs. Mich St and of course the Orange Bowl were everybody (except Sammy Watkins) unimpressed including over hyped QB T.Boyd who I wouldn't draft in a 12 Rd draft.

In the games I saw and have seen everytime I saw Ohio (by the way I also caught them Vs. Cal late night Sat. game on ESPN) From what I see Mewhort is a grader in the run game no doubting that but Miller and the other QB off the bench did so much running with Hyde I really couldn't tell you what you had in pass protection maybe up there in Big-12 Country you've heard more? By the way watching the Ohio - Mich. game knew you were somewere watching real good game! Someday will get up there during the Yr. to catch a game, Bro!

Posted by: fin4life | April 09, 2014 at 09:25 PM

I did miss your point-Duh. The injury concern! Yep, that's the legitimate one. Hopefully that's in the past. Delmas is 26, in his **Prime** and SHOULD be playing the best football of his career.

I had him on my wish list coming out in 09. But, as usual, we had too many other needs. Also, Delmas went early, I believe he was the first pick of the second round that year.

I have such high hopes for this secondary. First off, it's supposed to be Coyles forte. Secondly, Delmas and Jones should be better. Jones needs to bounce back and Delmas shakes the injury bug. This happens and our safety position is solid.

Grimes, Finnegan, Taylor and Davis should mean were loaded here as well. Nothing need be said about Grimes. Finnegan should be solid. Unless he bounces back some. Then it's lights out time. If Taylor and/or Davis steps up, this secondary could be scary good.

This is one of my favorite personel groupings right here. As long as we have some semblance of a pass rush, these guys will be awesome!

We already have our future SS on the team. Reason Clemmons was let go and Delmas was only offered a 1-year contract
