Has Jonathan Martin been tearing it up in San Fran? Working his way up the depth chart to 1st stringer?

Let's see if Coyle learns from his mistakes before we throw the towel in folks. We'll know pretty well first 2 weeks if he's a keeper or not.

Partly true Poizen. The points allowed by the defense was a pretty good stat. If the offense can score better than 26th in the NFL, maybe we can make a little leap to greener pastures.

Could Michael Egnew > Rob Gronkowski?

You want talent, I'll give you talent. Brandon Albert, let that sink in for a second. Now think about this...Charles Clay. Lamar Miller. Knowshon Moreno. Mike Wallace. Brian Hartline. And are you ready for this, this is the Big Whopper....RYAN TANNEHILL! It's like a full moon beaming in a starry sky. Think '94 49'ers. Think '83 Redskins, '84 Dolphins, '99 Rams. The amazing thing about the whole thing is the team's ability to keep this all under wraps until the regular season. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled is convincing the world he didn't exist.

Sheesh... cost us Aaron Rodgers... Posted by: Mark in Toronto | July 29, 2014 at 03:56 PM Please don't remind me, I already feel sick on all the QBs we passed up on.

Based on Omar's reporting, the Dolphins are ready for the regular season tomorrow!

After the year the OL had last year, I would not want to start the season with a first time center. It's not like for 1 or 2 games. This is for half the season likely. I'd rather get Satele who's proven he can snap the ball without constant errors.

Most of those incompletions were on the receiver. Tannehill rarely makes mistakes.

Posted by: Fins - Tech | July 29, 2014 at 12:10 PM Is Tannehill the best QB in the AFC East right now?

My Nats are in 1st place. Looks like they'll be in the Playoffs. My Wizards made it to the Playoffs this year and actually won a series. I really don't know what to do with myself. Could I possibly have 3 teams make the Playoffs in 1 year? It's all up to you Miami.

As someone who was down on Philbin this offseason, I've actually been impressed with some of his statements/things I've read these last few days. Things like interacting more with players in the offseason. Things like shortening the time vets are in camp. Being more direct in answering questions and stating the obvious (instead of taking us as fools). All these things could possibly lead to the light coming on and Philbin finally understanding the intangibles a good HC needs in order to succeed.

I'd much rather we played the Rams in the 3rd Preseason game and the Cowboys the 4th. The 3rd is the closest to a season game, and the Rams are a MUCH BETTER test than the Cowgirls. Having said that, if we lose to Dallas, then we should consider self blacking-out all the games this year, for our own good.

By the way, have you guys heard about the problems with Odell in New York? Guy can't stay on the field. He was hurt in OTAs, minicamp, 1st day training camp. Coach is already done with him. Looks like we got the better LSU WR.

Over drafting a first round pick should be our official team motto!

5-11 this season; Posted by: FLH | July 28, 2014 at 10:40 AM Actually, if we're not going to the Playoffs, 5-11 would be a breath of fresh air. We've been stuck in mediocrity for a decade. I'm sick of 7-9, 8-8, middle of the road. 2-14, 3-13, 4-12 would mean a higher draft pick next year and better chance at getting a franchise QB. I just don't think we're that bad. I think we're no worse than a mediocre team. I can't see us winning fewer than 6 games (I may be wrong though).

Mark, I agree with Phins on this one. He's getting abused by one of the best pass rushers in the game. Who, by the way, abuses other ProBowlers year in and year out. I'm not ready to say James can't play because he's been beaten the first couple days of camp. Let's wait and see the progression. Where we agree is with your stated philosophy. First-rounders should play Day 1, I fully agree with that. Which is why some of Ireland's picks were really questionable (we aren't San Fran, in a position to get injured players that will sit out their rookie seasons and blossom later).

Good to hear Lamar Miller is ready to have a breakout season and the offense is more geared to getting him significant touches which generate positive yardage. Of course, this has to materialize during the season, but I'm cautiously optimistic for Miller. He's been training with the right guy (Frank Gore) and if he spoke and got any wisdom from LeSean McCoy I'm hoping he takes it to heart and uses it to up his game. With all this talk about Tannehill and Wallace, I think other things can help jumpstart the offense.

Wow Mark, so in your ranking, was Tannehill right below Marino? HA, I couldn't let that one slip by Mark, it was just hanging up there, like a R.A. Dickey slider. It's good to be back on the blog. I missed this!

Wow Poizen, impressed. You're getting a Landry jersey. I've learned my lesson with my RARELY worn Daunte Culpepper jersey. Rule 1 of a fan - Make sure the guy sticks with the team for a year before even THINKING of buying his jersey.

What's "proper English"? You gringos might want to look it up, I'm pretty sure it's the Queen's English, as in ENGLAND! Anyone speak that? Then we're all Neanderthals.

Also, why am I more worried about the Bills Week 2 game than opening day (vs. Pats)? Could it be if we can't beat the Bills it's likely we're 1-5 by Week 8 (when Pouncey's likely coming back)?

Poizen, prove him wrong by purchasing that Jarvis Landry jersey. That will show how much you love the kid.

He even interviews better than Egnew. There's just no comparison. We're looking at a football player here people.
