"(Wilford) looked good in preseason with Henne throwing to him. " No...not so much. You don't address his meager numbers w/ Jax this year. Wilford lost a step and he didn't have one to spare. Nobody said Turner can't catch. The only thing I've heard is he can't digest the playbook. Damian Williams led the Trojans in recieving that year, not turner.

I just read an interesting comment from Tinshaker which made me reread the blog. Crowder really didn't say anything inflammatory at all. Reread it and just read what's in quotations and you realize he was actually just trying to be a good journalist lol! That said, he DID give JP a forum and he had to KNOW that this was what it would be about, so that can't sit well w/ the trifecta...I bet they let this slide and maybe at the most shop him for a fair trade predraft. I don't see him getting cut for this, Armando just kinda fooled me with his editorial comments.

Dude, Wilford had 123 yards recieving last year. His "average went up 50%" is almost true, from 8.3ypc in 2008 to 11.2ypc in 2009, but his total catches is laughable. He had 3 catches with Miami in 2008 and a whopping 11 in 2009. Congrats EW on your 50% improvement! (EW did catch ONE TD pass this year so props for that) He put up 123 yards this year, and you say he's gonna put up 1400 next year? Turner? HSB is this you?

I've been railing on Joey a lot today, but to be fair, I don't think he's a bad guy or a bad player. I just no longer thing he's a good teammate to the younger players of the Miami Dolphins, and I wish him the best in his next destination.

"what does this have to do with miami, he was in pitt. " People change, but not so much eh? "then and let me clue you in on something even butthole tell the truth sometimes. face facts football chew gusy up and spits them out. unless he was out dancing and drink on south beach the whole going out thing is a load of crap. " And you have some "butthole" detector that tells you those rare occasions when it's happening? Cool! "face facts football chew gusy up and spits them out. " I'm utterly speechless. "unless he was out dancing and drink on south beach the whole going out thing is a load of crap." I agree that if he was merely having dinner it seems excessive, I merely question if there's another side of the story, the side from the guy who keeps this stuff in house...who I don't think requires a "butthole" truth detector. Joey, it's cool, I'm pretty sure Al Davis will be willing to sign you and you'll make all that money back that you lost yourself these last couple of weeks. I don't doubt that you still have it in you. I know you do...but not for a whole season. Which, by the way, is exactly why you shoulda be a little more open minded when it comes to sharing snaps. Best of luck to you.

"What? Joey never lies dormant." He does when he's supposed to be supporting the run!

G L You claim to be aware of Joey's ways...you think there's any possibility it was a little more then "going to get something to eat", and since Sparano keeps this stuff in house you maybe just haven't heard the other side of the story? If you're aware that joey is a "butt", you've got to take his version of the truth with a grain of salt. I'm shocked that a guy who was caught on video tape with his entire crew jumping another NFL player (because they presumably don't like each other on the field?) and beating him senseless is so easily trusted by some of you.

"No I would not equate him to Cancer and it would be insensitive to do so or the HIV virous or any diesease. But Porter needs to go and his bad attitude is what is infectious, or can be. So lets weed out that his attitude and anyone else who has jumped on his band wagon. Time to go joe, time to go. " So Cancer and HIV is off limits, but calling him a weed or a an infection (presumably other than HIV) is not? I think this is a case where we as individuals have to get a little more thick skinned and not expect the rest of the world to cow-tow to our individual sensitivities. markey, I'm sorry you'v been a fan of Joey all this time and now other dolphin fans decided they don't like him. You need to work on your fact vs. opinion though. Fact: the Superbowl will be played in miami. Opinion: this team needs some bad boys. Even in Joeys ONE GOOD SEASON for us, he got the vast majority or those sacks in spurts, including one game when he got 4 of them. They came in a few other spurts along the way. How'd he do in the playoff appearance? How about week 16 when the division title and playoffs were on the line vs. the jets? Bubkus. How about week 15? Hurt. How about the playoff game? Nada. You and joey have the same illusion, that sacks are all that matters. But when the sacks come at the expense of your run support, your teamates, and your win loss record (because you let a QB run 35 yards down the sideline while you tried so hard for that ever important sack tally), they ring hollow. One good year, and that's worth letting him contaminate our younger players with his venom? No. It ain't. It ain't worth 20 million either.

I've been affected by cancer personally, several times, my brother currently has it, even though it's unrelated to the brain cancer he had in 1989. I've had it (skin cancer that was caught early, so yeah, it's not that big of a deal) and my mother almost died from it in the 90s. The brother of a very close friend DID die from it in the 90s and my list could honestly go on for awhile. I say all this so that Mark in Toronto can see I'm not being insensitive, I'm using it as an analogy. I didn't invent the term "locker room cancer" or "clubhouse cancer", those terms have been used since I've been a sportsfan. I use the term as an analogy, and while I don't like the war analogies players use, I understand where they come from. I will continue to use the analogy, because it is a very fitting one. The very advent of analogy was so that when a term didn't exist in one setting, it's meaning could be conveyed from the use of a term from another setting. Analogies are so important in our language that standardized tests are repleat with them: A is to B as C is to ____. Cancer is an appropriate analogy for joey, because he lies dormant, and then strikes ferociously. His behavior encourages other players to behave and think that way (CC for instance), thus spreading his problems throughout the lockeroom and eventually the organization...including the fan base. I'm sorry if it hurts you to see this analogy used, but I don't believe that it's wrong, so yes. Joey is a team cancer. BTW, if you have trouble getting past this analogy, you may consider that cancer is used in many metaphoric, analogy and simile examples in our society. Here is one for instance: http://www.ehow.com/how_4922448_rid-auto-body-rust.html Again, I don't intend to offend you, but I also don't intend to stop using the analogy where I see it fits.

"This year is important for Sparano,if this team doesn't perform then he outta here. " Says a guy with no authority whatsoever.

Bobbyd12, well at least we know you're smarter than JP! (though I apologize, that doesn't sound like much of a compliment :-) ) NJ, yeah, I'm probably out of here. As you can see I'm a little more polite on the other blog. At least I know who to ignore there.

Greetings NJ, I couldn't sign in over there and thought I'd come here to get my fix, but I wonder if 90% of these posters are even dolphins' fans to start with. Nothing but complainers siding with an overpaid crybaby. Armando's trying to be inflammatory too, but I'm pretty sure he thinks that's his job.

"Wait until your bosses bring in some young person and tell you to train them for your job or tell you they are going to put you on part-time work to give someone else some of your time... " Allow me to rephrase this. "Wait until your bosses offer to pay you 5 million a year to train someone else to do your job"...fortune 500 companies are founded on this kind of opportunity. If what you say is true, Joey shuts up, teaches wake what he can and mentally notes that his next potential boss is watching him right now.

"If coaches were actually calling Joey after his suspension behind Sparano's back like he said that worries me. " You ever heard of good cop bad cop? "Keep your head up" is hardly a vote against the actions of the HC, it's a position coach trying to prevent a mental midget from jumping off the ledge. Seer, STFU saying Sparano and the "overall team" thing. You've heard from two players TWO PLAYERS THAT ARE KNOWN TO HAVE NO BRAIN MOUTH FILTER. You can get into bed with 'em too if you're so convinced Sparanos lost the team. Hop on the CHEMO CART, CANCER KILLS.

" gotta admit that Crowder's comments have made me think Sporano has "lost" the team." I'm tired of even reading this. The HC is the freakin' boss. I don't care if it's Cameron, Kiffin, Fontes, or BB, Bill Walsh, or Don Shula. He's the boss and the players are the employees. The concept of a HC "losing" the team means the players who can't set their overpaid egos aside need to find new job. 'nuff said.

"Let me caution Sparano as well. This will be year 3 of his project. He has to make the playoffs, nothing less." Whatever. Hollow threats from a person Sparano doesn't even know exists.

"Now we know why the Dolphins played so poorly and lost their last 3 games. Their locker room was divided and there was no real trust in Sparano." Let's see. Two coaching regimes, two divided locker rooms, one captain in common. Cya Peezy. I'm sick of you pointing to your sack totals when you know damn well you got those sacks at the expense of your run responsibilities. Crowder says Wake can't cover? Well I'd rather have that then a guy who can't play the run. Crowder can go too. I defended him this year, but he's turnin' into joey jr. without the production. I'd rather have 1 Ayodele with marginal skills and a good attitude than 10 Joeys or CCs. Players that can't fall into line are NOT TEAM PLAYERS. Football is a TEAM SPORT. The HC is the LEADER OF THE TEAM, and Joey has proven for 2 consecutive HCs he can't deal with authority. Time for Chemo...kill the cancers.

One other thing, Joey, if I recall correctly, cleaned his locker out completely at the end of the season (and I think Omar insinuated it was as though he wasn't planning on coming back).
I know everybody around here considers Cameron the anti-christ, but I will NEVER get past the story of Joey openly defying the HC in a team meeting the year of 1-15. Vontae may want him on his side in a barfight, but I'd watch my back if I were vontae, Joey does what joey wants-that's not a team player.
"2) I'm fearing that Ted Ginn will be a complete bust." Yet you compare him to Duper. If you're "afraid" of that why wouldn't you back a plan to get him the ball more often so you can find out for sure? Or maybe you're already judging him to be a bust so you don't want to see what he can do for fear he'll prove you wrong?

"i sure would like to know the games where you saw cobbs, ginn or camarillo light up a nfl defense." I don't really like ESPN, but generally their offensive highlights come from plays where a defense got "lit up". You could easily youtube some of these players to see examples, but then you might have to stop hating for a minute...so take that into consideration before you watch. :-) Here we go again. FFR hates Ginn and thinks I have an unfounded mancrush on him. (there...no we can forego the argument FFR!)

"P.S. Abraham will lead the NFL in sacks!! He's a freak!! No coach can teach Long what he learned this game and he will grow from it. " No way he leads the NFL in sacks (for the season). He can't stay healthy. The rest of what you say is spot on though!

Excellent excellent column Armando. Exactly what I've been saying on the SS boards all week. To Shaggy. I see your point. All offenses try to take advantages of percieved defensive weaknesses, but those are in game adjustments that are made to the game plan that's put into place the week before. Armando's saying you don't go into a game with no gameplan and just see what the defense will allow you, you have a game plan and stick to it until the defense DICTATES that you make an adjustment. If establishing the run wasn't part of the game plan vs. ATL it's poor game planning IMO. If it was, they went away from the game plan IN SPITE of the fact that ATL didn't DICTATE that adjustment. (IE...we got 4+ yards a carry and ran it what 20 times?)
