Dolphins apparently taking a look at Jermichael Finley. Would be a huge target if healthy. That's a big IF though, same as with Keller. Posted by: Dolfan Rick | April 13, 2014 at 07:26 PM This playeris onebig hit away from a wheel chair for real! He wants to play (probably financially motivated) but human nature tells me he'll be looking up at the Safety before catching anything, we'll see?

Guys, I would lik to see other Positions addressed early i this draft but if Big Zach Mettenberger by some chance fell to our pick in Rd-3 I would take him in a heartbeat. I saw alot of LSU games last Yr. nd feel this player has as much upside as any of the QB's coming into the League. Big tim rocket arm can thread a needle! If he's gone and Aaron Murray were there Rd-5 I'd seriously consider I feel this player would be a higher rated prospect if not for the injuries. If a College QB is often injured you might want to reconsider letting the NFL Front-7's get there crack! After in Rd-6 Va Tech's Logan Thomas is a nice project to hand Lazor!

Which of the top 4 qb's in this years draft do you think is the real deal? Manziel, Bortles, Bridgewater, or Carr?? I think it would be hard to pass on Johnny football. Posted by: Dolfan Rick | April 13, 2014 at 06:18 PM I actually think that Derek Carr will be a very good NFL QB. If not for the fact he's David's little Bro with his miss as the #1 overall selection I believe Derek would be the consensus #1 here! I know the competition was suspect bloating those Sr. #'s but if you watch him he has a real fluid motion and just looks the part while Bortles needs a ton of work.

They all want to be Tony Santana. Say hello to my little friend. Posted by: JUSTIN CREDIBLE | April 13, 2014 at 05:15 PM Tony Santana? I remember a WWF Wrestler in the 80's named Tito Santana who feuded with Greg "The Hammer" Valentine for the InterContinental Chamionship but no Tony? In the movie Scarface Al Pacino's character was Tony Montana.

Gangsters don't really want to be gangsters. Economic conditions plays a major role in it. Posted by: SAM I AM | April 13, 2014 at 04:14 PM Very true!

Hernandez looking at death row. Posted by: SAM I AM | April 13, 2014 at 03:49 PM I read a report on Thursday that Aaron Hernandez is now offering to testify that Carlos Ortiz was the shooter. All but admitting guilt and 25 to life but sparing himself a lethal injection. Seems that like in all these Capital offence trials there beginning to flip on each other although Ortiz has been trying to cut a deal seeking immunity from practically the beginning.

f4l, Jerry Jones won multiple SB's in Dallas. Posted by: ExposingTheFraud | April 13, 2014 at 03:04 PM Yeah! With the teams JJ built and Coached. In 96 that team still very much in it's prime managed another Title even though there H.C. was famous for not wearing a head set which John Madden crticized him for by saying on air (I'll never forget it!) "I can't figure if he's the Coach or a cheerleader" About a week ago on Dynasty week on the NFL Network they had the triplets together (Irvin, Aikman, Smith) and they openly say they wonder what would have been if Jerry had left Jimmy be because they feel they could have challanged for 5 SB's in that decade with Jimmy the Machine! The 1st proof that things were gtetting bad was the minute JJ walked out the door after the 93 SB the Cowboys NEVER BEAT S.F. AGAIN!! EVER!! IN THAT ERA!!

Darkoak, Barry Sanders would have been great but had JJ stuck to his guns even if fans hated it and traded Marino along with later (suffering a Lawrence Phillips hangover with the 2 arrests after 97 Season) drafted Randy Moss (and his arrest drama) and made the trade with Washington in 99 to move up (he felt he had to give to much) and grabbed Edgerrin James. He might have pulled off another SB Championship making him the 1st Coach with 2 different teams. After he left I felt that team with the D it had would have made some noise if ever saddled with an at least middle of the pack QB.

From the NFL side most Cowboy fans would tell you Jerry Jones is the ghost that they just can't exorcise from their team. Ross is bad but I'd question if he's the worst of all. Posted by: Darkoak | April 13, 2014 at 02:58 PM He after all built those Fla. heavy teams in Dallas in the very early 90's! The reason he had to get rid of the idiot Coach because, hey! Barry Switzer can win with the team I assembled! Any fan of Football would tell you that his ego wrote some big checks and now days even with the over-the-CAP spending he can't win a Playoff game t save his life!! I call it the curse of JJ!!

Posted by: Darkoak | April 13, 2014 at 01:56 PM After their S.B. loss to Dallas in 96 when there was talk about moving Marino there for a #1 pick I'll tell you in JJ I trusted and would have been on board!

Dolphins so badly need a Mickey Arison and a Pat Riley Did anyone read lebayards article today about the heat family? That is the blue print for success. Posted by: Go gogo | April 13, 2014 at 01:08 PM I went and I read it good stuff from start to finish! The rallying behind your team (were a family) mind set isn't new to Miami Sports the trick though is in having everybody from the top down buy into it and show it through action the way Riley has instilled it in the HEAT Org. I know the U are a College team but it was Jimmy Johnson who started the tradition of "FAMILY" back in the Mid-80's. It had his players once graduated and making NFL Millions coming back and doing the heavy lifting in the recruiting process which kept the deck stacked at UM and was maybe the most important part of their dominance over a very long stretch. After JJ leaves to Dallas and ever since you always see him and Irvin, Sapp ect... Plugging the University. It hasn't paid the same dividends it paid when JJ's boy Butch was in Town because this particular UM Adm. has tried to distance itself from that past for alot of reasons but with everything in life you take the good with the bad and there were alot of positives about the UM family approach. The HEAT have taken it to another level but I always felt it was the loss of guys bleeding for each other more than anything while getting greedy that killed that very same atmosphere in Dallas which JJ instilled in that youn team before departing. It's also very important like I said earlier that everybody buy in because when JJ came to the Dolphins his D bought in but Marino didn't. As much as I loved Dan Marino the player I don't wear blinders and it was his ego that hurt what JJ was building as much as anything else.

Posted by: fin4life | April 13, 2014 at 12:32 PM It also helped that Brady got the Pollard treatment on his knee. Posted by: Darkoak | April 13, 2014 at 01:32 PM That's right!

How BP managed to win 11-5 in 2008 with Sparano as HC and Ireland as GM, I'll never know. Guy must be a Genius. Posted by: oscar canosa | April 13, 2014 at 12:19 PM It really was a perfect storm of events! We had a very weak schedule in 08. The very tough NFC West today was a joke and the AFC West wasn't much better allowing us that Yr. to play alot of mediocre teams in what were nail bitting wins for the Dolphins. Ireland was the G.M. in name only given he really (originally under Parcells) was the Sout Dir. He put together the board for Fat Tuna or brought him the menu while Parcells did the picking. After getting blown out in Az week-2 08 on the flight back to Miami QB Coach David Lee suggested Miami run the Wild Cat O he ran in Ark. with McFadden and Felix Jones. This gimmick backdoor O caught the Pats off-guard in Week-3 and then the rest of the Yr. it's like opposing D's would forget to tackle when we ran it just caught stading around until Rex (then Balt. DC) snuffed it out blitzing the "A" Gaps stuffing it. All in All a COUP for H.Wayne Huzienga!!

Believe what you want to believe Shula. He didn't really want to be here to start with and was done.Ross just gave him the excuse to bail and not finish what he started. Posted by: Dolfan Rick | April 13, 2014 at 11:06 AM Parcells was hired by Wayne Huzienga on a Golf Course, the same Huzienga who in 96 brought in Jim LeLand (then a Parcells himself in M.L.B.) along with a host of talent to win a World Series with the Marlins in 97 in order to pump up the sales value of a World Series winning team before dismantling it in a fire sale and selling the team for 150 Mil to John Henry off what was originally a 95 Million Dollar expansion fee investment. Granted the team bled money from opening day in inaugural 93 but Wayne who owned JRS recouped alot of it in 97 through ticket sales, merchandising ect... It's why I'm personally convinced that in that meeting to join Miami Parcells was made completely aware of Wayne's intent to sell and the reason for the sweetheart clause that allowed him to collect the entire 16 Mil on his 4 Yr. contract should the team ever be sold. I always wondered about this very convenient clause in a deal signed in early 08 when the team was sold in late 08. Remember early that Yr. Wayne would have took 950 Mil for the team but after pulling a Marlins like 180 the price jumped to 1.1 Billion allowing Wayne to pocket an additional 150 Mil which must have made Parcells 16 Mil seem like the best 1 Yr. investment he'd made in 08. Parcells had a nice offer on the table from Atlanta before Wayne stepped in but in Atl. he would have actually had to stick it out/work full time. Wayne and Parcells conspired to pump up the sales value of the team were both could prachute out in a Yr. IMO a backdoor deal with a slimy Owner who spent the money but not for the City, fans or the sake of winning.

improvise with him? Posted by: oscar canosa | April 12, 2014 at 05:42 PM YES! IMPROVISE! Unique skill set on a freakish athlete why not! It's in team history were we had a guy named Duje who played all 4 LB spots in Arnsparger's 3/4 as well as some DE. To the brief stint with Saban lining JT up in multiple sets as well.

Posted by: Ron Son | April 12, 2014 at 05:34 PM I'm with you! I think we weren't alone in it crossing our minds when Arison offered to buy the Marlins from Loria. He's shown an ability to close the Big-Fish like he did in 96 with Riley. I didn't think there was a shot Riley would leave the N.Y. market with such a stacked team like those Kinicks were. So he'd have closed on some NFL Big-Wigs around here looooong ago if he had been able to buy the Fins in 08!!!
