Let me know when someone starts a petition for ANY of the following: Fire Ireland.com Ross Sell The Team.com Manning to ANYWHERE BUT Miami.com Give Me A Super Bowl Before I Die.com I will be glad to sign any of these but I don't want to part with the money that Manning is going to want and I DON'T think he will fully recover nerve function in his tricep. (Although, I DO hope he does since I am not a jerk!)

Why does every pick we make seem to come with "tweener" tags? Is it bias by the NFL Network/ESPN? Odrick-DE? DT? Misi-ILB? OLB? DE?

If he slips to 28, do you think the Dolphins could pick TE Gresham?

I would say the honeymoon is over this year and the "newlywed" process begins next year. If the Dolphins continue to beat themselves in 2010, then the coach will get some heat. For a first year starter, I am happy with Henne but he must show improvement next year in his decision making. Oline makes me feel good considering our ability to overcome injury (although I think resigning Carey was a mistake). He gets beat too often and feels like he is comitting more penalties than the rest of the line together. Also would like to see the "injury prone" tag come off Thomas, Grove and Smiley. Our safeties still feel like a liability and we need a game-changing WR. Overall though I think that makes the Dolphins about 4-5 players away from serious contenders.

Maybe Porter being inactive is a small message to "Play More/Talk less" but don't be surprised if: Wake now gets more playing time and Turner gets his roster spot!

12 men or stupid TO, either way....Sparano SCREWED UP! He did alot of great things in that first half but that was 4 pts we cannot afford!

Please tell me somebody is going to ask Sparano WHAT HE WAS THINKING by calling a TO when the Saints were going to kick the FG!?!

Vernon Carey is right about needing to clean things up a little BUT he needs to be looking in a mirror when he says it! He is BY FAR the worst starting lineman we have.

I don't want to put a damper on the party but people always say nobody talks about the bad during a win: In my opinion, resigning Vernon Carey was a mistake. He run blocks pretty well but he is DEFINITELY the weak link on this Oline during pass protection! Look at the film...OVERHALF the sacks/hurries given up by this oline have been from

I expect a quasi-rookie QB that continues to gain experience and learn! If you want what I predict: 14-25 125 yards 1 TD, 1 INT The Dolphins won't let Henne carry this team (unless the Dolphins defense continues to be shredded.) Expect a heavy dose of Ronnie and Ricky (40 carries 160 yards) Posted by: Finsfan in CT | October 02, 2009 at 10:21 PM I was pretty accurate if I do say so myself (and I am glad I was wrong about the INT.)

You were looking for a player that DOESN'T have something to prove? How about Ricky Williams? Somehow he has a big role but little expectations because (believe it or not) he has managed to remain out of the public eye. He isn't the starter (Brown) and he isn't the "next big thing" (White). He is just a complimentary back. Interestingly, because Jake Long's agent was so good, now Long has the pressure of those salary bumps.

Armando, You are kidding us, right? There is NO WAY that the Dolphins can convince anybody they are really trying to make a championship run this year! Talk is cheap, the moves they made speak volumes! What were our biggest holes last year? Stopping the run, getting pass rush, and throwing the football. Other than some 'maybe's for pass rush, name me another hole we legitimately filled? Who is on this roster to stop the run that wasn't here last year? Are Hartline, Turner and White going to significantly upgrade our passing game (especially with an accurate, but limited, Chad Pennington at QB.) Teams that are trying to win TODAY, will fill their major holes and, along with two rookie corners, the Dolphins are still going to have trouble stopping the run and creating offense (unless White TRULY revolutionizes this offense...do you think THAT is going to happen?)
