Guys who don't deserve to play in the NFL

Matt Moore
K.Moreno
M.Gillislee
P. Wheeler
C.Finnegan
C.Sturgis

Anybody is better than these guys.

Most shockingly of all is rb Daniel Thomas 2nd on rb depth chart. IMO, he looks primed to be cut this year.

Deserve? Everyone in the NFL deserves to be there. Just some are better than others. Only people like you and I do not deserve to be there. Neither of us put in the great work it takes to get there.

Why are you such a player hater? Why would anyone be so self-destructively obsessed over guys getting paid to play a kid's game as you. No one's paying any of us for our so unprofessional opinions. They make this tam no better, no worse.

I already know the 53 man roster.

The Erin Mills Town Centre Bus Terminal is located in western Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. It is situated on the northeast end of Erin Mills Town Centre.

Despite being a major bus terminal, it does not contain a building. Instead, it is composed of benches and one bus shelter on the opposite side. It is also not directly connected to the mall and requires walking through the parking lots.

The terminal, along with South Common Centre could possibly be relocated to the Erin Mills BRT Station of the Mississauga Transitway, for more connectivity with other routes that are planned to serve the station.

There is a large community of headless Cambodian refugees settled just to the southwest of the Erin Mills Town Centre.

Sup Dawgs?? Da Dolphins be illin. Dey needs to get some soul from da hood!!

Everett Watusi and Iguana Adams will certainly make this team. Look for them Friday.

My cousin Ammonia Jones be in camp this year. My other cousin Listerine Davis be in he Chiefs camp.

Isnt accuracy a needed trait for a QB? They clearly should've drafted a QB and a RB.

Finnegan is in beast mode right now.

Someone in here called football a kids game. That's an absurdly ridiculous statement. Please educate yourself on the origins of football.

sorry wallyfin, you have to cut 1 more, you got 54, thigpen out

Don Jones

Bloggers who don't deserve to be on the internet

Yesterday's Gone

That is all

Jason Trusnik at $1m? later

Broken bones and concussions = no kid game

Trusnik, 1 Mil not a lot, he has experience and a good special teamer.

Trusnik, true, no doubt, but at 30 and never a starter, no reason to keep. Wilson not as good but maybe in a few

SWC,

Didn't we just do this 2 Hrs. ago! Looks like Mando is reading, LOL!

Wheeler is gone next year, so Jenkins, Tripp and McCain will be kept.

Landry isnt starting?

Landry to start over who?
The kid can play.
But he's not ready to start over Gibson, Wallace and Hartline week 1.

Observations......

Strange depth chart??

I saw Jimmy Wilson practicing as the Nickle CB and is officially listed at Safety.

R.Matthews is listed as the Back up WR Split wide right? He's the one guy who really shouldn't play anything but the Slot?

The DL Depth is good enough for every member to make the team even though that's impossible.

Moreno is exactly were he's supposed to be given the shape he showed up in to his new team even though we all know he makes this team by default.

Was at Camp and also saw Tripp practicing at MLB.

Our 2nd pick should absolutely be a starter or it was a poor choice.

Mike Wallace is open deep at least once per qtr.
He pulls the safety any where he goes.

Anybody is better than these guys.

Posted by: El Dashi | August 04, 2014 at 06:57 PM

What's the deal? You use to drop some good input now everything is negative? I caught some posts by you over at Cote's when Mando was out and the same? Over there thought it was someone else.

Mike Wallace is open deep at least once per qtr.

Posted by: speed kills | August 04, 2014 at 09:27 PM

Wallace is always open. Doesnt seem to help.


Our 2nd pick should absolutely be a starter or it was a poor choice.

In 1983 the Dolphins picked Dan Marino with the 27th pick of the FIRST Round.

He did not start until game 5.

Was that a poor choice?

Landry don't have to start to get reps.
By seasons end, he will be more productive than any receiver drafted before him.

Watkins hates EJ Manuel.


Most shockingly of all is rb Daniel Thomas 2nd on rb depth chart. IMO, he looks primed to be cut this year.

Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 04, 2014 at 06:58 PM

If Moreno injury goes into week-3 of the Pre-Season this move maye made as insurance early in the Season. They won't cut him going with Miller, Gillislee and some UFA's. Also with team always keeping 4 I could see him on final roster with Moreno and Gillislee unless UFA D.Williams can show a spark.

No need to pump him up for me given I saw Williams in Sugar Bowl Vs. Bama and he balled! Don't get how the leading rusher in Okla. doesn't even go Rd-7 these days? However he'll need a great Pre-Season while pitching in somehow on ST's.

On paper our RB Depth does seem weak with so many in the Middle Rds. this last draft, Oh well!

Wally, agreed.

Except we will carry 3 RBs. And Thigpen as an Athlete.

Moreno stays. He is still the smartest RB in the room. And the contract.

Thomas and Gillislee are fighting for the same spot. At least D.Thomas has shown flashes. And his size is something we still lack at the position.

Gillislee problem is he has a ceiling. And he has already reached it. It took Gillislee 4 years to start in college!! And he had no one in front of him.

--Fact--

UF has only produced 2 NFL RBs worth anything.

I'M GUILTY ALSO OF GOING WAY TO FAR POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE

All I really care about this week is Matty-Ice getting put in his place - finally.

Mike Pettine downplays Johnny Manziel getting all the first-team reps, but it's clear Manziel's bearing down on Brian Hoyer

BEREA, Ohio - Quarterback Johnny Manziel spent Monday's entire training-camp practice with the Browns' first-team offense, and Brian Hoyer played exclusively with the second team against the second-team defense.

But after practice, Browns coach Mike Pettine said it "is all part of the plan," and that Manziel's first-team time was not the result of Saturday's scrimmage in Akron.

Pettine added that the first-team reps will go back and forth between Hoyer and Manziel, probably on a day-to-day basis. He also said there is a chance that Hoyer will start Saturday night's preseason opener in Detroit, but that's not for certain yet.

In the opening team period, Manziel stepped in with the No. 1 group and launched a 40-yard pass to Travis Benjamin.
He also completed a deep ball down the right sideline to Andrew Hawkins.
Manziel had an encouraging performance during Saturday's scrimmage at the University of Akron. During that session, Manziel threw well on the run, scrambled 9 yards for a first down and squeezed the ball into tight windows.

Over the past 4-5 days, the quarterback competition has shifted from Hoyer being clearly ahead and Manziel having a "very difficult time'' overtaking him, to where Manziel was working exclusively with the first group for a full practice.


In 1983 the Dolphins picked Dan Marino with the 27th pick of the FIRST Round.

He did not start until game 5.

Was that a poor choice?

Posted by: Marino fan | August 04, 2014 at 09:39 PM

Was going to answer those posts regarding whether Landry should start but you answered perfect! You could have added that Duper was the 2nd Rd'er in 1982 were he played behind the likes of Cefalo and Nat Moore who couldn't run with the Louisana track star to save their lives. Yet he never saw the field till Mid-83 (With Marino) guess he was a wasted pick as well. Besides we finally have great depth and WR's take a little time as we all know.

F4L,

Agreed. My post have not been as optimistic as of late.

They are based on 2 things.

E.Spoelstra SUCKS!! And Heat Fans fail to realize that. At least LeBron did.

And

Hickey screwing up the 1 thing he had to do to make this a playoff contender. Plus, how YG/Never/Admits/to/Anything/17/IN-HIS-ASS.(Or his mouth)

Take for instance Mike Gillislee!!

He had the Audacity to say M.Gillislee was better than E.Lacy last Offseason!! 1000s of pages of personal insults and calling Dashi an Idiot. All for what? So the Home-o can come up with a new 100 names for this season. And act like he didn't say that garbage.

RYAN TANNEHILL WILL SIGN A $120+M Extension!! (After next season.)

Who saId Gilli is better than Lacy? Hahaha

On Sat.I came home from te scrimmage nd decided to keepi Football all day sticking withthe coverage of the HOF and in there Pre-Show the panel actually said that "IF" Manziel can't beat Hoyer he doesn't deserve to have gone with a #1 pick.

I was a bit floored hearing that from the likes of Irvin, Sanders, Faulk and Warner (Usually reserved but didn't argue the point)

I've seen the ESPN NFL Insiders group on everyday at 4:00 P.M. with there Manziel watch daily as well. Alot of pressure to get him on the field this Yr. in Cleveland.

Excuse the typos practicing posting from phone.

It's LeBrons fault we played that joke "HELP" defense against the Spurs.
Leaving 2 players open the entire game made no sense.

That's not the same defense from LeBrons second year.

That team that Marino was drafted on to was a much better team than the current Fins. Harder to crack the starting lineup on a much better team. If Landry isnt starting they should've drafted a different position. They sure have enough needs.

Gibson is expendable!!

He might be good and some might even be sympathetic to his plight. But Gibson is Expendable!!

Landry should be our #3 WR this season. Then next season trade Wallace for a couple picks. Then have a top 3 of Hartline, Landry, Matthews. With a rookie WR to fill out the position.

I like Wallace but he is more of a #2 WR than a #1 WR. And we are paying him like a Top 5 WR.

Wallace is not a complete WR. And he does not have exceptional size.

I would trade Wallace and Draft the best 6'4" 220LB WR next draft. Even if we have to trade up.

The early picks should be starters on the bad teams.

He knows what he said!!

He even made up stats!!

I admit. Dashi said the Fins should have drafted E.Lacy at #12. I believe that if the best offensive playmaker is there at #12 you take him. Even if we have L.Miller already on the roster. In the NFL you need at least 2 real good RBs on the roster.

I understand being a fan of a player, but to be a fan to the point of zero objectivity? Talk about loving hard.

El Dashi | August 04, 2014 at 09:58 PM

I don't think Spo is a good Coach either but LeBron didn't leave because of Spo! I saw an interview with Miami Heat ultimate insider LeBatard on the Dan Patrick Show and he said this was an issue with LeBron's "FAMILIA" (The Posse of sycophants who bleed him like a leach) and Riley directly given Pat put a limit (And rightfully so) on their access!

No B.S. I heard it from the horses mouth and will look up the link for you! The issue has been building and there was bad blood. I don't think there is a single reporter with more access to the Heat Brass then LeBatard and believe while he denied it that Riley maybe used him on ESPN as a sounding board. At this point everybody saying the right things even though body language says otherwise in every related interview you see!

LeBron maybe the best player on the Planet but he came here to Miami a MENTAL MIDGET who couldn't even conduct an interview by himself (It was PATHETIC really yet nobody remembers the Baby we got in 2010) Not his fault, no Pops plus an Army of Ambulance chasers telling him he poops ice cream.

So when he failed on his own he didn't know how to snap himself out of it before a bunch of Men taught him in our Org. For this he owes Riley, Mickey, Zo and everybody else who taught him how to a Champ and a Man First and foremost. Based on that his omission to thank the Org.,City or it's fans for the way he was treated here was a slap in the face and one he's aware of but doesn't care to address IMHO!

Posted by: El Dashi | August 04, 2014 at 10:13 PM

I agree and argued this point with your buddy (SARCASM) Big Baby but disagree with your Top-3 for the future given all 3 are either best served in the Slot or at best as a possession #2.

Saw the headliner, and almost instantly freaked out....we don't need more injuries!
Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but I feel like this offensive line can rise to the challenge..Joe has his work cut out for him, but I feel pretty good...let's see these guys in action before we pronounce the season dead.

Gibson is expendable!!

Posted by: El Dashi | August 04, 2014 at 10:13 PM

The entire team is expendable other than Wallace, Pouncey, Wake, and Grimes.

F4L,

That is why I say get the rookie 6'4" 220lb WR in the first next season.

Hartline, Landry, and Matthews are good secondary WRs that benefit from having a true #1 WR type.

Wallace himself would benefit from a true #1 WR. He isn't a #1 type, Wallace skills are complimentary.

See you guys later. Good posting.

...I think that the Phins have stockpiled a bunch of very good young talent on the defensive side of the ball. Now can this talent blossom when it is time to bloom? Just look at the Linebackers for instance. Jenkins and Tripp, The secondary, The defensive line is loaded with young talent...

This is huge because if these players pan out, and become as good as they can be. It should leave us in a great position to concentrate on the offense come player acquisition time. It also allows us to rid ourselves of aging Vet contracts as the tea should feel comfortable with the next guy up.

They aren't ready yet. But lukily they are young. Luckily there are enough pieces on this defense that they should be the strength of this team this season. Looking at the roster. The team has done well finding talented, athletic players our guys. Now w have to develop them.

Good points! I'd rather have 4-5 solid options to get the ball and make a play than one guy that everyone knows has to make a play. See the 2012 Detroit Lions to see what that results in.


Posted by: El Dashi | August 04, 2014 at 10:47 PM

Way ahead of you check out Dorial Green-Beckham a 6'6"/220 Pd WR listed at a modest 4.5/40 but a HUGE target who will slip in the coming draft because of issues with smoking sense. Also read up on a kid out of Az St. called Jalen Strong 6'4"/210 also running a 4.5. Then there's a kid in Stanford Ty Montgomery whose 6'2"/210 but can move better at 4.4 speed.


Wallace is running a ton of routes this year he never was asked to run before.

If the defense goes everywhere you go = #1 WR.
It ain't rocket science.
He's one of the only players in the league that actually dictates the defense.

Anyone who studies Tannehill knows he favors the left side of the field.
Where did silly man Mike Sherman line him up 98% of snaps? You guessed it!

Delmas instantly made the defense a contender.

We will need a serious pass rush to beat KC. And their RB is a beast.

Posted by: Darryl Dunphy | August 04, 2014 at 10:51 PM

Good catching up with you Mr. Dunphy,I was out at Camp and your Boy Tripp looked good flying to the ball. Am looking forward to seeing him on the field for at least 2 Qrts. Friday. The DB's as a group counting the 2013 guys of course look deep in an area of concern the last couple of Seasons.
