I think we should look at Danny Watkins (Guard). He was released by the Eagles. A 1st rd pick two years ago. Posted by: The Woodshed Gang | August 31, 2013 at 09:30 PM It looks like Ireland is finally listening to me. This is a good pick and I could see this guy picking up a lot from Richie Incognito. He sounds like someone who is tough and mean but doesn't understand how to use it on the field. If anyone can help him in that aspect, it's Incognito.

Sinatra jr. Jordan is a DE. He is not and will not be an OLB with the dolphins. That isn't an opinion that is fact. I haven't heard one person within the organization ever mention Jordan and OLB in the same sentence. He will be part of the rotation with wake and Vernon. Posted by: Jaison | September 03, 2013 at 12:13 AM I guess you didn't see that they lined him up everywhere vs the Cowboys in his only real preseason action. I even saw him line up at MLB. They will put him anywhere that they feel like he can create a mismatch or confusion for the QB and the Oline. That is the reason, I believe he was well worthy of the 3rd overall pick. He can create pressure and cover anywhere on the field, not just with his hand in the dirt.

Woodshed, Yeatman's listed as a LT, Wakins a OG. We're in enough trouble at LT to thin the position further. Has to be a LT for a LT, not OG. Posted by: LOVE FAKING 17-0-IN-YUR-ASS! | | August 31, 2013 at 09:50 PM I see your point. I think John Jerry could be a good backup LT. I think he has even practiced there this preseason.

Posted by: LOVE FAKING 17-0-IN-YUR-ASS! | | August 31, 2013 at 09:38 PM I'm not sure I agree he is a complete bust. He started 18 games in the past two years. I would replace Yeatman with him and try to pick up DJ Williams while parting ways with Charles Clay.

Posted by: tiredfinfan | August 30, 2013 at 10:49 PM I would hardly call Clay a bust. He was a 6th rd pick who has made big plays on occasion. I don't think much of him but I think he has done better than most 6th rd picks.

Tannehill, Wallace and Hartline have all looked good. Gibson has made awesome catches and terrible drops. Clay doesn't know how to get separation and can't catch. Miller can run, can't catch though. Thomas can catch and block, can't run though. Oline has shown improvement as of late. J.Martin and Incognito have had good preseasons. Our defense makes a lot more big plays, is improved against the pass. Looks like they may not be as strong vs the run though. Overall, I think somewhere between 9-11 wins is a very achievable goal.

Detroit now actually has a better team than Miami from QB to RB to defense Posted by: Home | August 27, 2013 at 12:14 PM LMFAO at this! Reggie will be inconsistent, Stafford will throw 50+ passes a game with a ton of picks. The defense will be good, but not good enough to get this team over 8 wins. They need a running game and a head coach.

Dashi, You really think the Dolphins will let Soliei walk next year? I think that would be a mistake. There just isn't enough guys that can handle double teams like he can.

Posted by: LOVE FAKING 17-0-IN-YUR-ASS! | | August 25, 2013 at 08:40 pm Agreed. Also consider if you take away 3 of those games, it was like 5 or 6 picks for the other 12 games (can't count the 2nd Jets game). The fact that he had only 3 TD passes to his WR's was the big problem. He already has 2 WR TDs in 56 attempts so I no longer see that being an issue.

For those that can't see it tonight, it is being replayed at 7am on NFL network. I'm DVR'ing.

Why is Odrick starting in front of Starks? Isn't Starks wearing the Tag? We couldn't tag Long because we already used it on Starks. Please tell me Starks is hurt not being outplayed by Odrick. Posted by: ExposingTheFraud | August 24, 2013 at 06:44 PM Makes perfect sense. They are roughly equal in skill, Starks is older and coming of injury. Keep him healthy, put him in on critical downs. Keeps him fresh to make plays when needed, his stats down get too high to where his asking price is too much to resign next year.

DETROIT -- Running back Reggie Bush had five catches for 103 yards to help the Detroit Lions rout the New England Patriots 40-9 on Thursday night. ============================================= Saw this on NFL dot Com. We let a lot of productivity just leave and go to Detroit. Posted by: JackSparrow | August 24, 2013 at 12:53 PM Wouldn't the Lions be better served if Reggie was running for that many yards? Last I checked, Stafford had a record high number of pass attempts but only managed 20 TDs and a 4-12 record. I don't see that changing because Reggie Bush isn't a consistent gainer on 1st and 2nd downs. He will fall in the backfield on 3/4 runs and make a 40 yd gain to deceive you into thinking he is a good starter.

Sparano might be able to get a gig as a lineman coach in High school after this season, if he is lucky.

Want couldn't even coach at the college level! How was he a good coach in the NFL?

Anbody see the video of Antonio Smith take hit Incognito in the head with his own helmet? Crazy there wasn't a flag thrown. The NFL is investigating.

It was clear that Keller was Tannehill's safety valve. It will be interesting to see who steps up to take that role. Yes, Gibson will no doubt get more production from this but here are the other contenders and my observations on each. Clay- makes big plays on occasion but those are mostly downfield and seldom on short routes. He seems to create speed mismatches but I he doesn't make guys miss on short catches. Egnew- he is inconsistent but is showing he can make plays on the ball in intermediate routes. He also doesn't seem to be able to make extra yards after the catch. Rodriguez- doesn't see much action for the Fins but his college tape suggest he works well on short passes and can make someone miss in the open field. My knock on him is he isn't a power blocker and has to rely on quick footwork to get into blocking position. Our zone scheme may help him cover his weaknesses. Sims- looks like a solid power blocking TE with a big catch radius. He could be a good target but can he make YAC? Daniel Thomas- a solid pass blocker and can catch out of the backfield. He appears to be more elusive than I previously thought he was. He could be a solid safety valve for Tannehill but he will have to stay back on pass protection so he can't be consistently targeted on 3rd down.

BTW, Thomas has stepped up big this preseason! He already was the best pass blocker and receiver out of the backfield but he is making really quick cuts for a larger back. He needs to start IMO.

Posted by: cocoajoe | August 18, 2013 at 09:37 PM I thought Tannehill played very well. There were a couple of plays he waited too long with the football and needed to throw away or run. 1st drive- Samuda gave away the drive with poor blocking and missed assignments. 2nd drive- penalties had us start on 1st and 25. Tannehill played well, Miller dropped the 1st down. 3rd drive- great job connecting with Wallace down the field. Threw a laser for the score!

This might be the turning point for seeing if Clay or Egnew can step up their games. Both show flashes. Hopefully one of them can kick it up a notch now that Keller appears to be done.

Posted by: LOVE FAKING 17-0-IN-YUR-ASS! | | August 18, 2013 at 12:47 AM You see a bit obsessed with the T-Hill underthows. Do you blame him for Swearinger aiming his helmet at Keller's knee too? BTW, Tannehill's QB rating for the preseason is 107. Clearly he isn't our biggest concern.

Why are we talking about drafting a LT or TE? Martin has looked good and our backup TE's have shown promise. I like the Jordan pick but if we would've picked differently, I say we would've gotten Warmack or Cooper (who I'm really high on) so we could've had a very dominant interior O- line.

Marino came around 2 decades ahead of his time. With all the rules protecting the QB and favoring the WR, Marino would've put up crazy numbers if he were in his prime during the 2000's. If a receiver could get his hands away from the defender, he was open enough for Marino!
