This handsome Dustin Keller feller is begging some for some kind of nick name. He doesn't have a jerry curl but "Soul Glo" resonates. What do my bros think?

Man, Vinbob and I really wanted to execute a project mayhem style prank at the stadium itself this weekend but it doesn't look like it's going to work out. Good luck with the sign though!

Partially my fault on lack of content. I agreed to do some All 22 reviews each week but then I had to go get married and go on honeymoons and shit. My bad. Keep forgetting, bros before h-...lovelywiveswhostillgivemebjsbecausewehaventbeenmarriedthatlongyet.

I really don't think Jeff Ireland survives this season. Maybe I'm as wrong about that as I was about the Dolphins winning last night, but the Dolphins will lose at least 4 more games this season and it's difficult to imagine how the guy in the organization with the biggest bull's eye on his back survives that.

We talking about the same owner that gave Tony Sparano a contract extension about 10 months prior to firing him?

So much for my theory on winning last night. Wow. That was stinky. Jeff Ireland's fate was sealed though. The upcoming schedule includes the Seahawks, Patriots, 49ers and Patriots again. If you think you feel like shit right now wait until we get done with those four games. And there's a strong possibility we only take one more game between the Jaguars and second Bills game. After a 5-11 or 6-10 finish to a season that started out 4-3...the displeasure will be so strong that the team will have to respond somehow. Jeff Ireland is gone.

FWIW I would be pretty surprised if Miami didn't walk out of tonight with a victory. All is not lost if they don't, though. In some ways, it might even be better if they don't. I really only expect the team to finish about 6-10 this year regardless of what happens tonight. Prior to the start of the season I had 5.5 wins with a lean toward 5 rather than 6. The upgrade (to 6.5 with a lean toward 6 rather than 7) is because of the Bengals game. That's the game that truly surprised me in terms of outcome and bucked against what I'd been building in. The Titans game was also a surprise but I had built that game in as sort of a 0.5 instead of a straight W, and since I already had a minus lean on my 6.5 estimate then it doesn't change my 6-10 expectation. I don't expect wins against the Patriots (x2), Seahawks or 49ers. I do expect a win against the Jaguars unless Chad Henne is in the game and decides to have a Culpepper/Raiders type performance. I have always expected a split against the Bills this year. The key in the last part there, a split against the Bills, is when we get the victory and when we get the defeat. I've been building in a poor finish to this season since before the season started. But if the Dolphins were to win the second Bills game instead of the first, then at least they get to walk out of the season having won 2 of their final 3 games and thinking that perhaps after a relatively fast start and a dismal middle of the season, they started to "find" themselves a little by winning 2 of the last 3 games. As things stand if the season goes how I think it's going to go then they won't even have that small amount of moral victory as the year closes out. That's why I didn't buy all that re-energized enthusiasm toward Jeff Ireland. He's still very much in the cross hairs (IMO) once this season ends the way I've thought it would end since August.

And that's not the first time I feel like Ireland was caught in a lie. In the wake of the incident where he called a Miami Dolphins fan an "asshole", he issued a "regret" statement (I won't call it an "apology" statement because I'm not sure he actually apologized) wherein he claimed that he sincerely thought he had said the word under his breath so that nobody could hear. I feel like this is almost elementary-school-kid-forgets-to-his-homework level manipulation of the truth. I've been in several concourses like the one in question. Channing Crowder has been in that specific concourse. It's loud. You don't say something "under your breath" with your back turned to a guy and it be audible not only to him but to everyone standing around them that all overheard the exchange and called in to the radio station even before the guy whom Ireland called an "asshole" called in himself. I just don't appreciate bold faced lies to the media. It lowers the bar, every time it happens. I realize that these public figures are placed in awkward positions often, to where the truth looks "bad" and so they feel they can't say the truth. I think there is a way to handle it and there is a way you don't handle it. Nick Saban flat out denying he will be the head coach of Alabama was not the way to handle it. Saying you were "enamored" with a guy in August when in January you go on to tell your friend that he's "nothing special", is not the way to handle it. Coming off the "asshole" incident looking like a 12 year old trying to explain that the pornographic magazine in your backpack was a friend's and you didn't realize he had put it in your backpack, is not the way to handle it. It calls into question the truth of everything he says to the media. You're now left trying to figure out if he has the motivation to lie about whatever he's talking about at the moment, because there evidently is no bright line standard in his ethics that says "I should not directly lie to people even if it is in my best interest".

Apropos of nothing to do with Francoise Boufhal's magnificently deep and shapely cleavage... Here's just one more reason I dislike Jeff Ireland as a GM. After the Draft, Jeff Ireland starts going out of his way to try and make sure everyone knew how much he loved Ryan Tannehill before Mike Sherman was hired. Obviously, he's wary of the perception that even if Tannehill pans out, that's more credit to Sherman and Philbin than Ireland. This is an example: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/writers/peter_king/04/30/mmqb/index.html#ixzz25pZhJqSe [quote]"I got enamored last August," he [Ireland] said, sitting in his office, the one with the framed photo of Walter Payton with his arm around Ireland the kid at a Bears training camp long ago. One of Ireland's points to me about Tannehill, and why he feels so good about the pick, is he put a grade on the quarterback in December and it never changed, all the way up to draft day. His scouts understood the implication.[/quote] And here's another example: http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/sports_football_dolphins/2012/04/jeff-ireland-says-ryan-tannehill-should-be-starter-at-somepoint.html [quote]"I personally have watched all of his games from 2010 and I thought he had first-round ability just off of his junior season."[/quote] The problem? His pants are on fire. http://www.miamidolphins.com/media/audio/Ryan-Tannehill-Impresses-Gil-Brandt-/99250dc9-853f-4fb1-b051-be44fc6030a6 Gil Brandt is friends with Jeff Ireland. They know each other from Dallas where Gil was a mainstay in the front office for decades and is still close with Jerry Jones. If you fast-forward to the 4 minute mark of that radio interview, you hear Gil Brandt relating a story. He said that in January he phoned up Jeff Ireland and told him you should really get a look at this Ryan Tannehill guy, he's fantastic. Jeff Ireland said "Ah well we think he’s alright but nothing special". Later on, before the Draft Ireland calls Brandt back and says to him "Boy I hope you didn't call anybody else." which implies obviously that Jeff's opinion of Tannehill had changed significantly for the better. Mike Sherman was hired on January 27th by the way. So yeah, the main thing that changed between the first conversation and second conversation was the hiring of Philbin and Sherman. Some people are going to claim that Ireland was just trying not to tip his hand with Brandt. That WOULD be a fair point except Brandt makes it pretty clear that they held a second conversation also before the Draft in which Ireland freely acknowledged that he now loves Ryan Tannehill. SO when Jeff Ireland feeds this total line of bull shit to Peter King about how he's been enamored with Ryan Tannehill since August, blah blah blah...it's just pure lies.

It's sort of like when Ted Ginn torched the Jets for a deep touchdown on that Monday Night game back in I think 2008. It's like, this guy may be a bust, but he's still torching your ass (somehow). (ALL 22 REVIEW SPOILER) Sort of like how the Jets' douchiness in grabbing Clyde Gates and making him a captain and then playing him in the game actually backfired on the Jets because he ran a piss poor dig route which Richard Marshall undercut and intercepted. It's just one of those rivalries, man.

Illness and the NFL are conspiring to keep me from writing this thing. Will push through. Going to make this one a combination Jets review and Cardinals preview. Real sorry about this. Evidently the NFL only promises to have the All 22 up by noon Wednesday, though sometimes earlier than that. So if you have anything that prevents you working on it Wednesday night (e.g. a pestilential central African hoo-doo virus) then you try and work on it Thursday night and BAM there's a Thursday Night Football game on so NFL Rewind shuts down until the game is over around midnight. Incidentally AMas92 if you want to know why that "study" is fatally flawed, scroll down to posts #325 and subsequent posts (#349 and #364). I pretty much destroyed the "study", enumerating its inherent biases and structural defects. The "study" wouldn't be worthy of printing onto toilet paper used to wipe my ass, in short.

You should have seen his face when he found out the cop wasn't fucking around and he got slammed to the ground, head pushed into the concrete, knee in back, chicken winged, etc. He looked like he was about to cry, he was like "What did I do?!?!?" I thought we were gonna end up in a fight anyway because the cops left with that one guy and forgot to take the guy that was in one of the latter stages of alcohol poisoning, we were all like wait up this is the guy that needs to be gotten out of here and hospitalized, don't just leave him here! His friend was still with him and looking at us all funny because we were still insisting he take his buddy and get him straightened out. I swear every 10 minutes our entire section was doing the prairie dog pop up and look because someone else near us was being hauled out by the cops. And then later as we circled down the ramp there was an old Fins fan actively getting into a fight with like 5 Jets fan douchebags. That game was rowdy!

El Mocoso, You're damn right I noticed her. Did you notice when the Kiss Cam settled on Tim Tebow and Clyde Gates another teammate (might have been Kerley, I dunno) came over and shoved their helmets together into a smooch? And did you also notice like the 50 million fights that broke out everywhere, every single one involving some douche Jet fan(s)? These Jet douches behind us were extremely loud and extremely obnoxious for a few quarters (we're talking slightly over the line stuff about hoping so and so dies, etc) but their buddy was waaaaaaay too drunk and he was pretty much throwing up (or trying to) right on the back of one of our seats. Eventually a cop came and told Lead Douche to "Sit down and shut the fuck up!". He meekly complied. Then they started getting in another argument with a Dol-Fan and the cop actually came by to talk to the Dol-Fan and just politely tell him, please don't feed the douches (gotta respect, the cop was tryin to be fair). But as he did so he finally noticed the drunkie essentially going through various stages of alcohol poisoning and he told the douches that's it you've got to gather your buddy and GTFO because he's puking everywhere and passing out. Lead Douche decides he's all smoov and comes out to the cop and tries to sweet talk. Cop not having it, orders them to gather their buddy and GTFO several times because he's throwing up on people. Lead Douche refuses. Then the coolest thing ever happened. Cop knocked Lead Jet Douche to the ground with a hay maker, grabs him by the head and shoves it on the steps, knees him in the back to keep leverage, chicken wings the guy's one arm and subdues him, cuffs him and drags him up the stairs. Yesterday was a loss. But not a total loss. ;) -CK

This KKK (Kevin Karlos Koa) linebackers unit needs to tighten up. The rest of the NFL will screen us to death and continue hurting us in man coverage underneath.

"I have my son as a witness that I called the Tanny rollout TD just before it happened. But his awareness kept surprising me..." Your son's or Ryan Tannehill's? Heh.

The thing that happened that makes me think a little bit about this team's destiny this year, was just the fact that they were able to keep their foot on the gas against the Raiders and put them away. Reggie Bush essentially gifted the team a 21-10 lead but they didn't just take that 21-10 lead and ride it out, as was a practice we're all too familiar with from the last coaching staff. It was the passing offense in the 4th quarter that came alive, going 80 yards for a touchdown to seal the game at 28-13. Reggie Bush only had 8 yards on that drive. Also the final drive where the team ran the ball on 7 out of 8 plays, going 75 yards for the 35-13 touchdown...either that was a totally broken defense (most likely) or that was a trait we haven't seen too often in Miami over the years. The passing drive intrigues me a little more because I don't think that was a broken defense.

The truly amazing thing to me was that Vegas has bet the Fins to +3. The Raiders were coming across country, off a short week, into unfamiliar 1pm September heat and humidity, with black uniforms, playing a team they had been curiously blown out by the last two times they played, minus their top corner and a key return and offensive weapon. And they're not even a good team. It was ludicrous to expect the Raiders to win, IMO. Key win for Philbin. He needed this. But if they had lost this game I would have had to re use my season expectations from 5-6 wins to like 2 wins.
