August 30, 2014 2:58 pm Duke Ihenacho victim of final Denver cuts by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com Safety Duke Ihenacho, who started 14 games for the Broncos in 2013, has not made the cut in 2014. Ihenacho led their defensive backs a year ago with 72 tackles XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Think Yeremiah Bell here! A Big hitter up around the line but not the best cover man. Needs a F.S. over the top with range which Delmas is! This player will be picked up and contribute to ateam and I'll remind you of this convo! Your also right though about Jones deal which pays 3.7 ths Yr and guaratees 7.76 in 2015 covering 15 Mil guarantee Ireland gave! When taking into account 14 Mil guarantee the more accomplished Ward got in Denver and the 14 Whittner got from Cleveland you get the imression Ireland gave a BAD contract here!

Guys, For the umpteenth million billionth time. Teams only scour cuts this time of year to TRY to upgrade the last 4 to 5 "BUBBLE PLAYERS" that made their 53. No more, no less. Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 31, 2014 at 01:16 AM I believe we have this issue at S.S. were Jones isn't a true one, Wilson less and project Don Jones is a bit raw!

Talib is the one with 27 Mil guarantee forgot to post the player!

There are other teams fans who make think someone cut from our team could come in and be their newest savior too. But we already know better don't we? Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 31, 2014 at 01:02 AM No I don't relish bringing in players off a scrap heap to svae my team but it's very obvious your focus is almost exclusively Dolphins or Playoff related! Ihenacho was cut by Denver because they felt TJ Ward was an Upgrade and guranteed him 14 Mil over the next 2 Yrs. while a 6 Yr. deal with 27 Mil in guarantee over the next 3 Yrs. Cris Harris (LCB) & F.S. Rahim Moore (Both solid DB's for Denver) Are going into contract Yrs. Add the money given D.Ware (20 Mil guarantee) and the Broncos had a few Vet CAP casualties on D with Ihenacho, Tony Carter and Kevin Vickerson who was the run stuffing DT whose loss last Yr. hurt the most on D. Not signing Moreno was a CAP situation along with Decker and Zane Beadles at the onset with Elway gambling on a win it all now team. You now very well here is a difference between scrap heap and CAP #'s game! Mark my words! Jones will be MEDIOCRE once again and passing on a S.S. will hurt this team were an addition like Duke could help out greatly!

Am I the only one intrigued by bringing in Duke Ihenacho? A real hitter at S.S.! I'd love to see him paired with Delmas at F.S. and when Jones comes back use him in situational nickle and Dime cutting D.Jones with the versatile Thomas sticking.

Winston is a Freak. He had a 26 yd TD run where he displayed every move in the book. The only thing missing was a spin move. Huntley also showed some grit. OSU and Alabama don't look like Powerhouse teams. Michigan looked nice. Can't wait til the U plays. Posted by: -I | August 30, 2014 at 11:45 PM For over 20 Yrs. now the run by Steve Young Vs. the Vikes in 87 was without question the best run by a QB I ever saw but this one just jumped to the top! Your right out runs 1st line of D cuts back and jumps over his Guard then jukes his way to the corner, UNBELIEVABLE play by a QB! He has an issue this Yr if that's the best run game they give him this Yr. however. So we'll see around Mid-Nov how his numbers look TD'S to INT's because he's going to have to throw close to 50 passes a game! On Gurly I was sold on the Kick Off return because while I knew the Power was there I wondered about his overall Top end speed. On the play at about Mid-Field he slows up looking for a lane and a DB had an angle from about the 30 and couldn't get him! If we're picking in the 20's in the 2015 draft I'd have ZERO issue with taking this player! I really think he's that RB who comes around every decade!

Society needs to stop comparing openly gay in sports to Jackie Robinson in sports. The comparison isn't even close. Jackie Robinson did not "choose to be black". Michael Sam did choose a "gay lifestyle". Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 30, 2014 at 05:06 PM Now what Stupido4Life? Call this plaguerising? Lmao.... Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 30, 2014 at 11:44 PM I posted the VERY same thing when he was drafted and the media hijaked the story in that direction like it was the new Civil Rights movement! Last I checked there aren't any armed Police hitting gay rights parade's with power hoses or unleashing dogs on them or for that matter requiring they get there food from a back door while having to use Bathrooms for them exclusively! Something alot of people actually wanted in Mid-80's WITH OUTBREAK OF HIV! If Micheal Sam were a 15 Sack a yr. guy I'd have no issue with him on my team, I really wouldn't because I am from the JJ School of, "If he can play I'd sign the Devil himself! He's a MEDIOCRE talent. Although plays with High Motor and has a nice speed move were his center of gravity gets low. I can see a use for him in certain packages for a needy team. Here lies the issue that team would need to play a base 4/3 alignment given he can't play OLB in the 3/4 because he'd get roasted in coverage! These days only 4 teams run the 4/3, Miami, Cin., Seattle and Dallas off the top of my head. The Cowboys have a serious need but that Owner (Backward Red Neck won't make the move IMO)

Hey dumbass if you go fin the entire post instead of your girlfriend Dashi's snipet. You'll find I began the post with: Found this own the internet. Keep telling you you're Stupido4Life. When will you ever believe. Keep right on proving my point. Lmao.... Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 30, 2014 at 11:22 PM I happened to read the Yahoo report and when arriving to the convo found a post with the paragraph in question with your S/W/C stamped to it! If you read my post you'll notice I asked if you took credit for it given I read the article before hand and didn't search out the original post by you Mr. Dying Turd! Does that settle your sensitivity issues or do you require a hanky? LMAO! Truly the BIGGEST clown here! Likes to dish everybody's way but can NEVER handle the rebuff!

By the way guys I've bn ejoying some great NCAA games today! Saban's Tide looks a litte weak this Yr. and FSU has no run game to speak of so Winston will have to do alot of heavy lifting. The D has looked suspect as well with Okla St. moving on the D at will in this game. Todd Gurly is my fav RB (And future Fin I hope) Given he'll need to carry Ga. he didn't disapointing going into the Yr. with 198 Yds on 14 carries Vs. SOLID Clemson D also a 104 Yd. Kick off return were he showed some jets out running the DB who had angle from Mid-Field.

I like giving Williams a chance with Moreno and Miller early but wouldn't mind seeing the Law Firm or LaShoure brought in for a look both offer the 4th and 1 guy or goaline RB we lack! Posted by: fin4life | August 30, 2014 at 08:58 PM Anyone figure these guys are available because they too are beat out by rookies? Waiver wire is basically for churning the bottom of your roster. Bring in an older has been like LeShoure means replacing Miller. I mean, you don't bring in this guy to sit the bench. he has to at least be "NEXT BATTER UP". If LeShoure is next batter up, why the hell keep Miller? Williams plays st's too, Miller doesn't. So who has the most value sitting the pine? Darkwa also plays st's. Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 30, 2014 at 09:20 PM The depth chart at RB features 3 Scat Backs and one Bigger RB (Whose not a player you want plugging between the Tackles) In 4 NFL Seasons dating to his Rookie Yr. Moreno has missed 3 games one Yr. and 9 and 8 respectfully between 11-12 before 2013 due to host of injuries. In 2013 with Manning backing off the LB's into Zone it opened lanes for Moreno not there dating back to playing more stacked fronts in the Orton/Tebow days. If he were to suffer an injury (A possibility given he'll need to grind between the Tackles in Miami) we'd be left with Miller, Williams and Darkwa, do you like that line up? I don't! If anything LaShoure brings size at 6'/235-plus Pds we don't have right now and can even see action on short Yardage plays which was the reason Thomas was even in the convo as the 4th RB given uneven play through his Pro Career. This move doesn't affect Miller IMO and actually makes him more of the Utility RB which would best serve his talents moving Williams (His Back up given skill set) to 4th RB Pos. and ST's player.

Sure, ideally the first openly gay player would've been a future Hall of Famer, but the idea that the movement should wait for its Jackie Robinson is ridiculous. To say that in 2014 social progress should adhere to the timeline and sensibilities of the 1940s is mind-numbing. Seventy-plus years and there's been no progress? Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 30, 2014 When are you going to come out the closet? Seventy-plus years and there's been no progress..... )) Posted by: Brokeback Mountain | August 30, 2014 at 11:09 PM Did he really post this?? This was a Yahoo Sports report on the cut! I can go find it were he plagiarized that paragraph word for word! Say it ain't so!

Who ever wrote this article is a idiot & will be eating his words this year. This idiot lost all credibility when he knocked the best running back stable we have had since we had a healthy Ricky Williams & Ronny Brown. Posted by: hollywood-Rick | August 30, 2014 at 08:41 PM Yes this Blog Article reads like were a 4-12 team the way he spun it regarding the Rookies and RFA's! In reality we cut some Vets for some of these kids which might be a statement to the Vets as much as there play! However we need a Big RB and Darkwa IS a PS Player right now! I like giving Williams a chance with Moreno and Miller early but wouldn't mind seeing the Law Firm or LaShoure brought in for a look both offer the 4th and 1 guy or goaline RB we lack! B.J.G.E. we know is all heart and would like to see what a change of scenery brings to LaShoure who was actually my fav. RB in his draft. The part of this piece by Mando regarding the DL and DE's in particular is laughable!

Players I'd be looking at right now before someone snaps them up at need for Dolphins. RB.... B.J.G.E. (Law Firm) Mickell LaShoure both bigger RB's were B.J.G.E is gone because of Rookie J.Hill and LaShoure didn't fit what the Lions do. Both are worth a Look. We need a Big power RB! Others out there but we need a BIG MAN for 3rd & 1!!! S.Safety... Duke Ihenacho, Alot on here liked the Delmas addition to replace Clemmons and so do I but to me the issue is S.S. When R.Jones played F.S. in 2012 he broke out but the smallish Clemmons was a liability so they flipped them and Jones doesn't like to tackle up around the line or take blockers on. SIGN DUKE FAST! He's the Hitter we NEED and is out of a job because they signed TJ Ward! This was a #'s move! CB...With the little we've seen from the 2013 guys who are ? marks (Davs bites on the double move and Taylor is an enigma who shows in Camp then disappears) I'd look at Leon McFadden who the Browns cut because Gilbert is ready now opposite Haden! Heck even Demitri might be worth a look getting the ax in N.Y. for skipping a Pre-Season game! He can be had for peanuts givn he collected 4 Mil in bonus from Jets a couple of months ago! Kicker... Connor Barth was cut over a Big 4 Yr. deal he got a couple of Yrs ago were Lovie made the cost cutting move. POUNCE FAST! Also the Eagles just let a couple go as well! Sturgis is INACCURATE and cost us a couple of tight games! I expect as many as 2 Kickers in Camp TOMORROW! T.E....Look at the Seahawks ReShawn Allen who was a casualty off deep group. No LB's I see nothing but ST's guys but S.F did release OLB Chase Thomas whose a smart player I remember at stanford who couldn't cut it on deepest core group in NFL! Remember Borlan/Whilhoite man it for Bowman back along with Aldon Smith in Nov. By the way on the DE's I disagree with you Mando! Wake Vernon Shelby Fede With McCain in situational role of the WOLB Spot and Jordan rejoining later feels to me like a group that should put up over 40 Sacks without the need of DB's Blitzing! Odrick doesn't offer alot in pass rush at DE anyway but could be a look up front for run D were Former Fin Kevin Vickerson could be brought in to plug space in a pinch!

Posted by: Craig M | August 30, 2014 at 11:59 AM Your question regarding a Big RB just got all the more important.LeShoure is a 6'/235 RB who posted a 4.45/40

By the way for all those (Myself among them) Who believe that a MEDIOCRE Tannehill Yr. with 7-9 Finish gets the Coaches FIRED and the team back on the QB hunt in the draft then the Watch/Tracker Starts now! On ESPN Noon Kick Off UCLA Vs. Virginia were the less touted of the 2015 Big-3 QB's will be on display! Everybody talkin Famous Jameis and Marriota but the one running the Pro Set for H.C. Jim Mora Jr. is my personal fav. not named Winston in Brett Hundley! Hundley taking the field for the Bruins and I'll be watching. On a Side Note everybody keep an eye this Yr. on Oregon St. QB Mannion whose a BEAST flying under the radar right now!

Not saying this is the right way to go but just trying to guess what they might do. The guy who loses the battle in Philly might be a guy to keep an eye on too. And I think Leshoure got suspended for four games a year or two ago, I think for substance abuse. Posted by: Craig M | August 30, 2014 at 11:21 AM In the last 2 Yrs. our Kickers have been the difference in at least one loss a piece. In 2012 Carp. missed a couple(Most notably at Home Vs. Jets with one late to win were his range past 45 became an issue)Last Yr. there came point after a great start were we really couldn't trust Sturgis (His whiff from inside 45 Vs. Balt. which is supposedly well within his range and the reason we let the more accurate Carp go!) I for one hope Hickey has the stones to bring in Bironas given I don't believe Rizzi or Philbin would have much issue with the move if Bironas shows out given Fields can Kick Off and wouldn't be the 1st punter to pull that double duty in the NFL. I also loved M.LeShoure coming out of Illinois and thought he was better than the guy he replaced in College (R.Mendenhall) who while today a foot note in Rookie 2010 Yr. went for over 1,300 with 13 Td's before making strange religious comments and really going off the reservation! Like everybody else I watch the Lions especially on Thanksgiving and it's obvious they (Like us for a long time) never really commit to the run and LaShoure IMO has more value/Upside than D.Thomas or BJ.Green Ellis!

Seems Jordan could well fall into the Ronnie Brown category where PROJECTED POTENTIAL FAR OUTWEIGHED college production coming into the league and: GREATLY FLUFFING THEIR DRAFT STATUS Can we now begin to call it: Ronnie Brown #3 overallitis?

Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 29, 2014 at 10:08 PM You can cut it anyway you want you said R.B. came out of nowhere in College (wrong!) This was the basis of a 3 post rant on your behalf , ROTFFLMAO! The guy was a STUD POWER RB who averaged over 5 Yds a pop on obvious run plays going for over 1,000 and coming close again in 2 RB set were he got it about 125 times a Yr. Those are PHENOMENAL #'s for POWER RB in the SEC in his ERA! In Miami he was part of an Offense with Frerotte at QB followed by Culpeper (BLOWING CHUNKS!) Trent Green, John Beck, Cleo Lemon before being the CATALYST of the Back door Offense we called the Wild Cat! Would it surprise you (I know it would your a CLOWN with ZERO imagination whenever your posts go in that direction there COMICAL in there SUPIDITY!) That OJ Simpson as GREAT as he was took 3 Yrs to crack 1,000 and average better than 4 Yds a carry. I use him because he's the one I can think of who was drafted that high saddled with such a 1-dimensional team and revolving QB door! Brown isn't on that level (Nor am I comparing him to the Juice just the circumstances) but he was (With the mess we were in 07 with 3 QB's) leading the NFL in rushing till injury ended his Yr. To say today that he was DRAFTED BASED ON FLUFF COLLEGE CAREER and that HE DID NOTHING ALONG THE LINES OF JORDAN TILL THIS POINT IN YR. 2 WHILE HE WAS A DOLPHAN are LAUGHABLE ASSERTIONS! You can spin it anyway you want I can keep reposting what you meant before your endless posts about what you really meant!

Oh....... fin4Life got so mad at me about this earlier. I compared Jordan to Ronni Brown in draft status vs performance. Like Brown, thus far, Jordan is showing some signs of good but far from lofty draft status. Like Brown, came from virtually nowhere to be rafted nearly top of draftboard by Dolphins. Brown was takn 2nd overall by Fins espite rushing for only 916yds and splitting rb carries with Cadillac Williams. Dion Jordan drafted 3rd oerall despite great sack, tackle, nor int numbers. Jordan was neither a TRUE lb nor de in college. And Fin4Life see ZERO similarities in this. Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 29, 2014 at 07:05 PM Ronnie Brown had SOLID College production in a 2-Back Offense. In his draft every draft Show from ESPN to NFL Network said the 4.4/40 he posted to go with his Power put him ahead of Cadillac and Cedric Benson in the 05 RB Class! Your a CLOWN! With a very Bad Memory! You might want to get yourself checked for Alzhiemers or something because that was 9 Yrs. ago yet your recollection is as if you really don't remember anything! By the way by this point as a Dolphin Brown was paying nice dividends! As a Rookie in 14 games (Injury) he hit over 900 Yds with a 4.4 Average and in Yr. 2 he went over 1,000 so again that comparison which you flipped into from original College comparison is LUDICROUS CRAP as well unless Jordan comes back and gets 10-plus Sacks in this his 2nd Yr.!

Posted by: cocoajoe | August 29, 2014 at 02:54 PM Our d-line coach, Casey Rodgers, is supposed to be one of the top 5 in the league. It's he who has probably determined Jordan is a better it at de. We just got new lb coach. So, he's probably hasn't seen enough of Jordan in lb duties to fully access his potential as a lb. Posted by: Still/Wade/County | August 29, 2014 at 03:05 PM Again Pure B.S.! And conjecture from the biggest CLOWN on this site! The minute they drafted Jordan in 2013 they said he fit perfectly if a bit heavier at DE and I quote, "He'll play with his hand in the dirt!" They've now acquired a former College DE in the very mold of what they want Jordan to be with McCain! McCain played at Cal at 250 Pds on his 6'6" frame before dropping to 230 Pds after being released from Cal. Were not the only ones wondering about this duo at LB or why McCain gets the shot while Jordan doesn't. Here is a bit from the Phinsider XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX McCain has Dion Jordan-like size (though much thinner at 6'6", 225 pounds) and has potential to turn into the linebacker that many people wanted Jordan to be converted to. McCain has good instincts and is very long, which, like Jordan, gives him an advantage that most linebackers don't have when covering tight ends. McCain is very athletic, testing very well in drills that measure athleticism and explosion such as the 40 yard dash (4.67), broad jump (10'01") and 3-cone drill (7.04, better than all but eight running backs from the 2014 draft), and even covered the slot at times in his days at Cal. He finished his collegiate career with 90 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss (-50 yards), 5.0 sacks (-28 yards), one pass breakup, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 24 games played and 18 starts. If McCain can consistently blanket tight ends in training camp then he will almost undoubtedly be able to unseat Jonathan Freeny as a back-up outside linebacker. Coverage from the linebackers is an area I am extremely concerned with. It was the main reason I so adamant about Miami drafting CJ Mosley in the weeks leading up to the draft. Despite the linebacker switch that puts Dannell Ellerbe in a more comfortable position, I predict that the Dolphins will still have trouble with scatbacks and tight ends this season. McCain, who intercepted an attempted throw-away by QB Pat Devlin in training camp on Wednesday, could keep moving up the depth chart if he keeps excelling and the Dolphins feel the same way I do about the coverage abilities of their linebackers. http://www.thephinsider.com/2014/7/31/5 ... ris-mccain Posted by: fin4life | August 29, 2014 at 03:16 PM
