Ireland had 2 billionaires hire him as GM. Posted by: BLT | April 22, 2014 at 09:29 PM Not true! We wasn't even hired by 1 Billionaire! He was a scout for the Cheifs before joining Dallas as Directorof Scouting (Jerry is te G.M.) Then in 08 Bill Parcells who "WAS" hired as Exec. of Football Ops. by Billionaire Owner H.Wayne Huzienga hired him to be his G.M. Later new Fins Owner Ross retained him but but that's not the same as hiring! So in actuallity it was Millionaire "Over hyped" Fats Tuna who gave him his break and hired him to be a G.M.

fin4 The price we paid for Jordan, he needs be far more than a gimmick player. Far more than trying to put him in positions to succeed. Jordan needs to become a DOMINATOR, run and pass game. He needs to be a consistently unblockable force. AJ Duhe was not a #3 overall pick. Plus, AJ Duhe only has 8.5 sacks his entire 8yr Fins career. Posted by: SAM I AM | April 22, 2014 at 08:17 PM Sam, Just caught your post been watching the Hawks self destruct against the Pacers.... Then you believe LT was a gimmick player throughout a very dominating career. Look it up Belichik lined Taylor up on both sides always looking for the Miss-Match which forced teams to have to come up with game plans designed around were he was Pre-Snap. I'm not calling Jordan the G.O.A.T. by any stretch but alot of what Taylor did out of the 4/3 is something you would hope Coyle tries with Jordan if for anything else in an attempt to have packages were he's on the field with Wake and Vernon at DE and either combo of the 3 DT's we have given all are able to get pressure inside in the scheme. On Duhe the career numbers don't tell the story, he was after all the 77 Defensive Rookie of the Yr. He spenta large part of his career injured missing alot of games and his main spot was at ILB in the 3/4 were Arnsparger would get cute and line him up at WILL or SAM or DE in his signature 82 Season given the team was reeling from the deaths of LB's Rusty Chambers in 80 and later Larry Gordon after 82 Season. Duhe plugged alot of those holes playing in a alot of positions from week to week depending on the match ups. This of course forcing Shula into the trades that brought Bob Brunzinski (SOLB) and Ernie Rohne (ILB) to the Killer Bees. In 83 he blew out his knee in Sheah Vs. the Jets and it was the end given those operations in those days were a butchering! Before that you can make a case for Duhe being the heart and Soul of the D more than Betters, Bokamper, Bomhauer or any of those guys who were the #1 D in 82 and if not for up and down Woodley would have won SB-17.

Propaganda media at Dolphins.com I guess, and blogs? Didn't Finsider interview Wallace today? Posted by: Darkoak | April 22, 2014 at 07:38 PM I found it disappointing that both Wallace (who lives in Houston) and Tannehill (from Texas) were both in the same St. during the Off-Season yet couldn't agree to get together to do any work. It seems the other WR's found time to get together with their QB except Wallace. If you read into there body language some from last Yr. you get the impession (at least I did) that they didn't care for each other much. Hope I'm wrong here but we may very well see more of the same (meaning low out-put) from this hook up in 2014.

He needs to freelance at OLB and spell Wake and Vernon IMO. Bring him from all angles. Posted by: Darkoak | April 22, 2014 at 06:51 PM Agreed!! Shades of AJ Duhe from back in the day who Arnsparger lined up on both sides at OLB & DE!

But Wallace couldn't be bothered for the past 4 months to even fly in for a couple of weeks? That's what irks me about the guy. I don't know the whole story and will give him the benefit of doubt. But I do know my attitude, and my drive to succeed. If it were me I would have spent every second I could with Tannehill because it not only would help the team it would help my numbers to go up. Everyone wins. There's plenty of time until the season starts. But there could have been even more time had he participated. Posted by: Phins78 | April 22, 2014 at 03:59 PM Funny thing is both were actually in th St. of Texas for a stretch durie Off-Season. Wallace lives in Houston while Ryan and wife visited their families. Yet they couldn't work out setting something up to get together? I know both say the right things but body language doesn't lie and I get the impression that neither is that fond of the other. By comparisonas soon as Elway inked E.Sanders, P.Manning flew out to N.Carolina to seehis new WR and throw it around!

The last GM to really do the samrt thing was Charlie Casserly when he picked Mario Williams over Reggie Bush and he still lost his job - some of it because fans never forgave him for doing so. Posted by: Mark in Toronto | April 22, 2014 at 03:41 PM Don't forget Vince Young was also in the mix that draft. Houston fans were split between Bush and Young and I believe Owner Bud Adams wanted Young. I can't recall a single publication that Yr. that had M.Williams ahead of those 2. So in hindsight Casserly had it right with VY out of Football and Bush really a career complimentary player.

Kris, I'm with you, I never believed in this Osama Bin laden character either. Created him to give the USA license to go into the middle east. Can't find him for ages. As soon as Obama wants to pull forces out, he conincidentally pokes his head from the sand. And if they find this scourge to US security and way of life, they wouldn't want to take him alive to try him, torture him, squeeze him for info? They shoot him on sight? It all worked out so nicely. Posted by: Mark in Toronto | April 22, 2014 at 10:20 AM On Sept 12 2001 Osama Bin Laden released a video were he was in a camouflage jacket and had Ayman Al Zawahiri sitting next to him were he declared his direct involvement with the Sept-11 attacks and said no American or "infidel" (meaning your Country as well) would be spared in his crusade. He said you didn't have to be Military or a Woman or Child to be killed in his Holy war. He later threatened that any Country that aided the U.S. in their war would suffer the same fate as the American Pop. he targeted and made good on those threats in Spain. Unfortunately the Bush Adm. trusted local War Lords on the ground who aided Bin Laden's escape from Tora Bora into Pakistan were the Government of that Country insisted they were looking for him while they're internal Security forces and Intelligence agencies sheltered him. He lived and communicated via courrier so it was as pains taking process to track him and we had him s much as 1 Yr. before Obama signed off on the intervention into a Nuclear Power's back yard to catch our most wanted. I hate reading posts from those that suggest this Country somehow orchastrated or had anything to do with those events but usually simply dismiss them as the ramblings of some idiot whose I.P. address is monitered by the FBI. I however have found you over time to be an educated individual and find this post on your behalf that much more insulting because of it!

On a serious note if the Russians keep it up with there little fly over stunts at less than 500 Ft distance from our Destroyer in the Black Sea that entire situation could get way out of control! So much for the progressive Putin whose acting alot like a guy who wanted Soviet expansion back in the 40's!

The video is that compelling! enjoy! http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=c9FS1bxaGTg Posted by: The Woodshed Gang | April 18, 2014 at 10:45 PM Anastasia has swung my opinion as well, a very compelling argument you post on their behalf!

Posted by: Dolfan Rick | April 18, 2014 at 10:36 PM Your really only as old as you feel. My wife tells me sometimes if I still think I'm in my Teens or early 20's because of my behavior to which I respond, YES! When I have free/down time I still like to go get a little hammered, play music to loud and if nothing to do tomorrow then carry on till the sun rises!

Speaking of Iron Maiden. We need "Eddie" to play MLB. Posted by: Dolfan Rick | April 18, 2014 at 10:22 PM I'd actually like him at Strong Safety myself!

I'm only 34 but I grew up listening to Pro-Pain, Pantera and Clutch. My dad listened to it as he was a big Zepelin fan. I remember him playing Nazareth "Hair of the Dog" on the Juke Box when we went to our favorite Taco joint as a 5 yr old. Posted by: The Woodshed Gang | April 18, 2014 at 10:27 PM I was born in 72 (So born to be a Fins fan!) and grew up with my older teen Yrs. in the late 80's, good times! My mother in particular was a huge Beatles fan while my Old Man was all about the Stones and Zepelin which influenced me early.

By the way the most ambitious Tour I ever saw was NWA opening for Guns-n-Roses in the 89 G-N-R Lies Tour. If you look at were music went with alot of bands later rapping of guitar riffs you can trace the origin here!

F4L & Woodshead, We must be from the same era. The 80's rocked! Posted by: Dolfan Rick | April 18, 2014 at 09:51 PM I suspect that as well and were not alone there are a few 40 somethings on here and older!

With Shazier, if he proves he can't play MLB, you could still move him outside. Either way the Wheeler problem is solved. I don't see it being an issue though. It's like their is an invisible force that moves him and the ball carrier together when he plays, he gets there violently and he really shoots the gaps on blitzes. Posted by: The Woodshed Gang | April 18, 2014 at 10:12 PM I see no downside to Shazier either and feel both will be solid Pro's. I also Like Arizona St's Carl Bradford a bunch as another MLB/OLB type. This draft isn't very deep at DE with a huge drop off after Clowney to Ealy IMO but there is alot of value at DT and LB into the mid-Rds.

....Strippers, Midgets and Clowns.......Oh My....! Posted by: odinseye | April 18, 2014 at 09:56 PM The last Concert in Lauderdale was basically still he Greatest hits tour they started in 05 when they got back together off the Decade of Decadence Album. Thy always had the Strippers and some theatrics but have taken it to another level since the re-union and suspect the farwell will only be bigger and better so your oldest is in for a treat!

What happens is he dances, ends up behind the play and the blocker just finds another LB or S to block on the 2nd level, resulting in big run gains. The one thing he does well is pass coverage but we could expect to be beaten by the Bills and Jets on the ground with him in the middle. Posted by: The Woodshed Gang | April 18, 2014 at 09:10 PM I watched Alabama a ton this Yr. and think Mosely will be a solid Pro at MLB. You know Woodshed in his defense the DL this Yr. in Tuscaloosa wasn't anything to write home about and Mosely's play around the line saved them especially Vs. LSU were the Tigers OL were blowing holes open for Hill. You call it happy feet but when you have multiple OL at the 2nd level your job gets that much tougher remember Kevin Mawae owning Zach Thomas getting to the 2nd level on our interior DL. As you mention his pass coverage is off the charts for a MLB and I see little down side with this player. Seems to have a nice feel for falling back into Saban's famous zone coverages were he always seemed in Position. Shazier could need to get stronger at the point of attack playing MLB and maybe best suited outside, JMO! By the way have zero issue with attempting to make the more big bodied Misi into a 4/3 plugger. He has the size and if there's an area of strength to his game it's his tackling ability although you hold your breath in pass coverage until he shows you he can handle those reads and drops from the MLB spot.

Best concert I ever saw was Pantera with White Zombie opening up for them. Plenty of beer, ass and grass for all to have and Dimebag Darrell (RIP) was amazing! Posted by: The Woodshed Gang | April 18, 2014 at 09:30 PM That must have rocked as well!

Marc, I actually saw Iron Maiden years back in Tampa. Quiet Riot opened up for them. Bang your head!! Posted by: Dolfan Rick | April 18, 2014 at 09:34 PM That must have been a show and yes while the radio played, come on feel the noise, it was Metal Health that drove that Album! I saw Judas Priest a few Yrs back at the Bayside Ampha Theater with Halford coming on stage in his Harley. Breaking the Law! Breaking the Law!
