But Mr. Ross, according to a number of people on this blog it shouldn't matter if Dansby wants 12 mil a year. Who cares if it's not good value, it's uncapped...

The article is a couple of days old and it is still early on in the process but it's still a little disheartening to see that we may be heading for a lock-out in 2011. http://profootball.scout.com/2/949570.html And don't worry, I didn't GURGLE it. I leave that to the ladies. LOL

Give your boy Crosby credit Mark. He may have been pretty bad through most of the games but he scored the winning goal in overtime in the gold medal game. Congrats on a fine showing in the Olympics Canada!! Proud to share the longest border in the world with you guys.

Yeah, it's a beautiful thing Sean. Our games against the Jest this year are going to be insanely good rivalry games. I'm pumped up right now just thinking about it. I completely agree with Scott, we are obviously in his head because he can't stop talking about us. He doesn't need to mention us first because you can be sure he's going to mention us every time.

Mando, that was my exact arguement as to why Gibril was a good signing last year. Boy was that wrong. lol

Dang, I always have too much work during the good blogs!! Real quick, gald to hear Ireland acknowledge the ILB play. It makes me think we’ll definitely upgrade ILB in some fashion be it in the draft or through FA. Just please say we won’t stand pat at that position Trifecta. As for Wilson, if we do keep him, it’ll be interesting to see if a different scheme changes anything for him. He got a little better as the season wore on but still was below average IMO. It is kind of surprising to hear the endorsement from Ireland. Then again with this regime the stuff they feed the media is all bullsh*t anyway. It wouldn’t surprise me if the next thing we hear about Gibril is that he was cut.

LMAO @ NJ You were dead on balls accurate about Gibril. Boy was I wrong on that one. :)

NJ, you’re half right. I only had the one convo with you when you welcomed me on this blog when I was a new blogmentor, then I was a semi-regular at the SS until I realized that Mando and his blog are far superior. My dumb a** fell for the Taylor April fools!! LOL That should be enough for ya Gotta get back to work. Peace out buddy :)

Mark, I truly hope we we get a rematch of USA & Canada. I'm not a big hockey fan but I watched the whole game and was riveted. It just seemed like it was played full-bore for the ENTIRE game by the players and that energy was contagious. I would love to see a rematch.

Rob, I have lived all over the country but I have always called Carmichael home. Right around the corner from Elverta :)

Thanks fro the reply #1. My father is the reason I like the Dolphins as well although it's exactly the opposite. He was a Niner's fan and I started watching football during the Niner's/Dolphins Super bowl and wanted to root against him because we really didn't get along. From that point on I was a football finatic and I lived and breathed Dolphin football. NJ, I think I was unclear in my reference. You explained to me about a year ago why there are so many New Jersey natives who love the Dolphins and I was referencing that conversation (the hint, hint was because I was under a different screen name at that time) :)

Yeah Indiana, I'm in Sac, CA and there are Dolphins fans EVERYWHERE in this city. We always have a solid fan base when I hit the sports bars.

It is surprising (and great) to see the number of Canadians that follow the Dolphins. Is there some reason Canada loves them some Dolphins or do you guys just blog more? I remember when NJ explained to me the reason we have so many jersey guys who are Dolphins fans (hint, hint NJ) so I figured I'd ask the Canadians on the board.

I agree Craig. I’ve been saying for quite a while that our ILB play weakened our whole D especially on the back end. You can’t have average TEs running amok in the middle of the field every freakin game and having the top flight TEs winning games single-handedly against us. I don’t know whether McClain is going to be great or not. I leave that to Parcells and company to decide if he is the choice or if it’s one of the others, but I do want to see our LB core especially our ILBs upgraded. We need an ILB that is not a horrible liability in coverage because with Ayodele and Crowder we have a huge mismatch in our base D every single game.

You just made Rob in OC's day Mando. As I'm sure you know, he has been preaching and arguing this every day for weeks now.

I'm having computer issues. It took me 10 minutes to get that post out. I will try to continue from home later guys.

JB, I feel Ayodele was the worst starter on D last year (including over Wilson) and Crowder is serviceable but just barely. I feel a lot of our defensive woes were directly related to the middle of our D being slow to react and ineffective. You put a good cover ILB and a good run stuffing ILB in there and the TE problems are not nearly as bad and our run D is that much better. I think we have a few decent OLB like Wake coming up and OLB is strong in this draft meaning we can get some good ones in later rounds. ILB by contrast is not nearly as deep and even though some of the OLBs may be able to move inside I’d rather not take that chance and get one of the proven ILB.

Without question Po. I don't pretend to know what Parcells is going to do but his track record is something to take into consideration. And I stay away from the McClain/Graham argument because I've seen it go nowhere. I'm on record as stating I feel ILB is a bigger need than OLB but I think we are going to get a good player whichever way they decide to go.
1 reply
Nevermind Rob, I see that you included that little blurb "at least about Graham"
1 reply
Correct me if I’m wrong but hasn’t Mando said he prefers Graham over McClain because he sees OLB as the bigger need and feels Graham is worthy of the #12 pick? Not because he doesn’t think McClain isn’t as good as advertised.
