Assessing the In-house Talent pre-Draft: Running Backs

By: Rigel Spikes (Marinofan13)

 

The opening of Free-Agency marks the first time in a new league year that teams can acquire some of the coveted BIG names of the game who have not been re-signed by their former team…at least, that is the general fan’s view.  While true, it also marks a time where teams can augment their rosters with solid, unsung players.  It’s important to field a SOLID team from top to bottom, and that includes backups and third stringers.  While we Phins didn’t breach the waters to make major splashes in Free-Agency (yet?) this year, we made a couple of solid waves under the surface in signing RBs Jerome Messam (Edmonton Eskimos) and Marcus Thigpen (Hamilton Tiger Cats) of the CFL.  That brings us to the topic at hand.
 
                                                                                 PHINS’ BACKFIELD (RBs/FBs)

Reggie Bush

When you have a Running Back who ran behind what was arguably the worst O-Line in the NFL last year…and he’s still able to break 1,000 yards rushing and nearly make the Pro-Bowl…you know you have a winner.  Bush was nothing short of amazing
last year in lieu of the deficiencies on the O-Line.  He even showed proof-positive that he could be an every-down RB, proving nearly everyone wrong.

Bush is back for the 2012 campaign to add a formidable slash-n-dash dynamic as we transition to the WCO.  His skill set, which includes great hands out of the backfield, is a match made in heaven for this new Offense.  Reggie Bush ’11: 1,086 Rushing Yards (#11), 5.0 YPC (#1 of any back with 200+ carries), 6 TDs (T-#18).

Daniel Thomas

A lot of people have been doubting Thomas.  Barring the trade-up arguments (R3+R5+R7 for a RB in R2 last year), it should be noted that Thomas finished #3 in Rushing Yards (581) as a rookie RB, behind only DeMarco Murray of Dallas
(897) and Roy Helu of Washington (640).  And he did this while battling injury, playing behind a porous O-Line, and as a rook who never went through OTAs and a full camp due to the lockout of ’11.

Thomas’ punishing running style is a great complement to Bush’s slash-n-dash style, giving our Phins the best of both worlds at the Running Back position. He also adds a unique dynamic of passing ability, as he is a former college QB.  I’m not sure that Joe Philbin is into “Wildcat trickery”, but it’s nevertheless a fascinating dimension of Thomas’ game.  If he cuts down on his fumbles (and I’m sure he will), there is great upside to the young Thomas.

Steve Slaton

Slaton has proven he can be a great back when healthy (1,282 Rushing Yards as a rook in ’08).  Unfortunately, his health has precluded him from becoming that same guy we saw as a rook: he’s only carried the ball a mere 43 times over the last 3 years. He managed a TD last year on 17 carries with a long of 28 yards, and management saw enough to re-sign him for the 2012 season.

If Slaton can rekindle some of that magic from the past, he makes for an excellent spell-back for Reggie Bush.

Jerome Messam

At 6’3″ and 245 lbs, Messam is an imposing figure in the mold of Brandon Jacobs. He is the most recent recipient of the “CFL’s Most Outstanding Canadian Award” after rushing for 1,057 yards on 195 attempts for an eye-boggling 5.4 YPC in 2011.

His 40-time is rumored have been clocked as a sub 4.4 in 2008…while still weighing 240 lbs.  More recent reports have his 40-time as 4.5; does it really matter?  If you can run as fast as he can at his weight, WOW!
 
He may be here to push Thomas and try to take his job, but one thing is clear: we have two ground-n-pounders on our current roster, and that’s a good problem to have as far as in-house competition. 

Other RBs/HBs on our current roster include the aforementioned Thigpen and Richard Medlin, both who are probably competing for a spot on the Practice Squad or as a keeper on the final roster for Special Teams duty.  Thigpen has an interesting story to be told, and I implore you to read up on him here:

http://sports.nationalpost.com/2011/07/02/marcus-thigpen-a-life-turn-around/
 
My analysis:  I think we are pretty well set at the RB/FB position entering the ’12 Draft.  Barring a FREAK surprise in the Draft (Trent Richardson or LaMichael James), I’d expect little to no churning or addition at this position.  There is much talent, youth, and potential on our roster at this position as is.  But anything could happen…hence the suspense we all feel leading up to the Draft.

    M13,
    Nice write up about the backs!!! I think Messam is here to replace Hilliard though and should prove to be much more effective as he is a faster more natural runner. I think his signing will also get Clay more snaps at the TE spot. and probably makes us more dangerous in the passing game. First, though, he will have to prove his worth on the NFL practice field.

  • Walker says:

    MFer,
    Great job, can’t wait to get to work and watch all the videos. Bush definitely has the potential to make the PB if we can get the right side of the Oline fixed. Loved the “doubting Thomas” line, that must have been geared for the DT83 fans, lol.
    I too, believe we are set at the RB position but I’d still consider grabbing Richardson if he’s sitting there at #8 and dealing Thomas if we could move back up in the 2nd

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    very good Marino Fan! id also like to add that Messam is very fast and powerful, he has a skill set that Thomas can only dream of. watching the highlights of Messam, i see no way Thomas can stay ahead of him in the starting lineup. i know its against canadian opponents,,

    but speed and power= speed and power in any league.

    i think Messam fits the WCO and thomas doesnt, well see of course

    • Dbolt says:

      David,
      I wouldn’t jump to that argument about DT3 not fitting in the WCO. He is very similar in style to Ryan Grant who fit’s this offense very well. We will see what happens for all of our backs once we have a fully functioning offensive line instead of a right side which consisted of cadavers.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    i disagree, Thomas isnt powerful, and hes slow, hes not gonna be able to hold off Messam. i dont see a backup fullback having much use in the WCO
    Thomas can work on his power, but slow is slow, and running upright makes him a easy target to tackle
    his refusal to twist and fight to get yards kills us on third and ones, or goal line situaations
    3 seperaate occassions last year Thomas couldnt score from the one yard line, from the one!
    there is no viable use for Thomas in the WCO, hes a backup fb

    • Dbolt says:

      David,
      DT is plenty fast enough as a runner, you need to remember athletes are going to generate power from their shoulder, but rather their base. DT3, as mentioned by M13, was dealing with a serious hamstring injury throughout the season. I don’t know how familiar with that type of injury you are, but I’m pretty familiar with it and know what it does to your strength and speed. I’ll give you a quick example. My senior year of highschool I developed a partial tear of my hamstring when my foot sunk down in a cynder track and over extended my leg. I ran the 300 meter hurdles, 300 in PA while 400 almost everywhere else, and my best times with this injury were in the 49’s until the end of the year when I was able to get back down in the 44’s at our league championship…..that was where I should’ve started my season at. It essentially added 5sec’s on my time and this was a sport that I wasn’t taking hits in. So once again don’t go off on a limb and start labeling him yet and in the same sentence, let’s not make Messam out to be something that he has not proved either. There are no known answers at this time, only questions.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Ryan Grant had 8 touchdowns rushing his first season. the pack picked him up as a free agent. hes fast and powerful

    Dan Thomas had zero rushing tds in his first season. we used three picks to get him. hes not fast, and not powerful

    i really dont see any comparison Dbolt
    not only did GB get better production , but at a huge value FA = 8tds vs 3 picks for 0 tds

    • Dbolt says:

      David,
      Ryan Grant had a very good year on a talented team. remember he was cut by the Giants that year also. Grant and Thomas have the same running style and Grant also runs upright. I know you don’t like Thomas, but you have to look at the whole picture and see what the kid can do when healthy and with a full off season under his belt.

      • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

        thats false Dbolt, i watched graants highlights this morning, and he pyts his head down and pushed the pile. go see yourself
        its also hard to compare 8 rushing tds with zero, no one really does this look at the 40 times, grant is much faster, these guys are not alike anymore than pat devlin and aaron rogers are alike
        its not met not liking thomas, its research the 40 times, tds, performance, and value. when you look at both, the pack smoked our azzes on this deal

  • fish dip says:

    Nice contribution Rigel Spikes (Marinofan13)

    Fish Dip is gonna hang up and listen to the comments 😉

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    i watched some of ryan grants highlights, he runs low to the ground, puts his head down, and runs people over.
    the more you watch of grant, and you are more certain hes way better than thomas and not close either.

    this is the opposite of thomas, who runs upright and easy to tackle rarely running anyone over

    this is a bad comparison, these two guys are nothing alike. grant is/was a great player and thomas isnt

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Dbolt, speed is speed, it can be measured, regardless of the opponents are CFL or NFL
    Messam is very fast, and thomas isnt. i dont think thomas can hold off messam, well see though
    thomas 40, when he was healthy before the draft, he was number 9 out of the top ten in 40 times, he is slow! cant deny this can we? the proof is in the 40 times if you doubt me, look it up yourself.
    everyone also knows the upright running style is wrong,, and is why he cant gain a yard when we need one.
    ryan grant puts his head down and pushes the pile, this is what we need for fb.
    Messame has skills, speed, and power, this is what the nfl wants
    wake has skills, speed, and power, how well did he make the transisition from cfl to nfl? very good!

    if you have these three, you have a great shot to make it, imo

    • Dbolt says:

      David you do understand he ran the 40 at his pro day and not the combine because of this injury, and was still having issues with his hamstring at his pro day. He’s not a blazer by any means, but nor is he a senior citizen in a cross walk. As I mentioned above with hamstring injuries they take away your explosion and I know this from personal experience. That’s why I’m saying you need to watch him with a more keen eye and open mind this year. If he doesn’t seem to regain his explosion then I will be disappointed also, but I think you are going to see a much more effective runniing back this year.

    • Dbolt says:

      And remember Wake is the exception and not the rule for CFL to NFL transitions. You have some who succeed but 3x’s as many who fail. Liek I told you with your boy Tebow, the stories on these players have yet to be written so let’s see how the story unfolds.

  • prof123 says:

    Nice site. Thanks. I was a long-time reader on the SS board, though I seldom posted.

    I was more active on the Delphi Forum “Thunderdome” which had a lot of folks from the original Sun-Sentinel message board, way before Omar even came on the scene, going back 15 years. Early members included guys like FootballFreak!!!, Carreramia, Ogdu5, Delaware Dolfan, and DCStranded. Later on, NPBROB, RigoSixto, and Relive1972 came on the scene. It was a great group for awhile, but it has slowly frittered away.

    So, looking forward to participating here.

    • Marinofan13 says:

      It’s good to see you here, prof123. Everyone is welcome here and we all look forward to maintaining and growing the Mob.

  • Marinofan13 says:

    D-Bolt, Walker, David, Fish Dip,

    Thank you for the compliments! I appreciate it.
    :)

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    great job Marinofan, i disagree with your thomas opinions, but i feel you have a valid viewpoint,
    its funny when people defend thomas they mention how bad our oline was, but that same excuse isnt used for Bush.
    did Bush benefit from a differant O line than Thomas? or did he simply perform better behind the SAME offenseive line as Thomas had? we all know this answer

    • Dbolt says:

      David,
      Don’t start seperating people, your talking about me. Plain and simple Reggie has amazingly elite speed and can cut back like few others can. They are completely different backs and one was essentially running with one leg. I’m glad you watched Grants highlights this morning. Not once did I ever say Thomas is better than Bush nor did I imply it so don’t try to put words in my mouth. It’s so funny when people try to tell you to let things play out and see what happens that you go to extremes in your opinions and then try to align yourself with Omar or now M13 like people are arguing with them and you want them do come jump on your wagon. Dude let it play out and see how it goes.

      • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

        i know you never said thomas was better than bush and i never thought of it or meant to imply it

        its a given Bush is better than Thomas, no need to mention that

        I agree with you that Thomas gets another shot this season, and yes we will watch it play out. i sure hope for huge improvement from last season or were not looking too good

  • Gigi says:

    Excellent write-up MF 13!!! :)

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Dbolt, its ture that Wake is the exception. why is he able to go from CFL to NFL? power, speed, tenacity, passion, skills

    i dont have to tell anyone who Wake is, lol we all know and see this

    its true Messam will need to make the same transition, and the odds arent favorable compared to most cfl guys trying to play south of the border in the nfl

    but, Messam has skills, power, and speed, and moves! he has an excellent chance to make it if his work ethics are good and he stays healthy imo this cant be predicted, we have to stay tuned for it!

    • Dbolt says:

      We will say that for all of our players :) Let’s just give everyone a chance in our new offensive and defensive schemes this upcoming season and see what happens man! I apologize if it seemed I got a little fired up as I just don’t like dealing in terms of extremes with these players. Let’s see how everything plays out and enjoy the ride!

  • MCP13 says:

    Nice write up MF13, like the doubting Thomas reference! I agree with your thoughts that we are most likely set at Running Back position heading into the Draft.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    didnt mean to fire ya up Dbolt, we all want to win here, i was mainly commenting on our running backs since that is what the blog is about. i do value everyones opinion even if i dont agree with it. i know everyone doesnt always agree with mine, lol its all good bro! peace and Chiefen love!
    our leader is chiefen, what are we, junior blazes? lol

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    cheifin and chongin

  • Marinofan13 says:

    I have an ongoing theory that Daniel Thomas’ play suffered from running behind a pulling Center. Thomas is a power-RB, so he’s going to be most effective on power/inside runs. When the Center isn’t a “mauler” or “pusher”, it’s going to limit the impact of a power-RB who isn’t shifty. That’s just my two-cents.

    Also remember, Thomas didn’t go through OTAs, a full camp, etc, etc, and he’d only played RB two years in college. His learning curve was thus more lengthy than most. I think he’ll be alright.

    HOWEVER, I AM in the camp that says you don’t use 3 picks to trade up for a RUNNING BACK(!) in the 2nd Round. SMH. Bad use of Draft picks, IMHO.

  • Marinofan13 says:

    MCP,

    Thank you, sir!

  • Capt. Stubbs says:

    Good morning Good folks,

    great looking blog Walker!

    I had a good Easter but with the recent events going on in my life, I’m glad this weekend is over. Time to start a new week and with that I pray it’s a good one.( no doubt in my mind that it will be)

    Nice write up M13!

    WTF Walker, I read on the last blog that you were giving away the WHOLE Dan Marino card. I thought you were giving me the upper half in exchange for my signed rookie Jay Fiedler card. I was going to throw in a Bill parcells Coaching card but not NOW. No WAY No HOW buddy. lol

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Morning Gigi and Capt Stubbs! top of the am to ya

    Midnight facts about this draft analyst: I don’t eat pork. Take that, bacon lovers.

  • Capt. Stubbs says:

    I see where you guys keep bringing up DTinfinity. i like his style and I believe he will be good given some time. I think he breaks out this year actually. As M13 was saying the Lockout hurt our rookie big time. With the proper training this year, he will bulk up a little and be better conditioned as to keep the hammy in the right condition.

    Go DTinfinity

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    if the great Chiefen decides to split the Marino card in half, i only want the top half, he can give the bottom half to Gigi, lol

  • Marinofan13 says:

    Capt!!!

    Good to see you amongst us, Brother! Thanks for the props! I hope all is as well as can be for you and yours, bud.

    • Capt. Stubbs says:

      Thank you as well.

      Even though our family has been hit with great tragedy. You can’t sink the Capt. Not in my MO to stay down for long. I will live on happy and remember the great family/friend known as Irish Tom. RIP Tom Walsh

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    been praying for ya Cap Stubbs for your familys well being, and that you wont lose all your fake baits to the mighty blowfish anymore! lol a little humour for ya, very little, but, lol hang in there buddy, i always got your back!

  • Dbolt says:

    Truth be told the running back I hoped we drafted from last years draft was Delone Carter from the ‘Cuse.

  • Marinofan13 says:

    That sucks. I hope he doesn’t become a Patsie* now. SMH

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    last comment on Thomas, and trying to be positive and hopeful

    i agree no lockout is a great chance for Thomas to bulk up and stay on the healthy side would be a huge plus.
    Im ALSO hoping that our coaching staff will implore Thomas to run lower to the ground in tight situations, stiff arm more, twist and push, keeping the legs driving. FB do not always get gaping holes to run through, they have to scrap and fight, claw and push, head down and humgry for the end zone or first down.
    if our coaching staff can teach Thomas how to play more passionate, and not run upright so much, you will then hear me praising Thomas, and wont believe it, lol Good luck Mr Thomas, i got my eye on ya brother!

    • Dbolt says:

      Like I said running on a bum hamstring is killer. For myself it was like trying to run with a muscle spasm in my hamstring along with the feeling of multiple bee’s stinging it. After the 1st 20 meters I always second guessed why I was putting myslef through the ringer.

  • Dbolt says:

    I also believe if he can stay healthy Slaton may end up being a deadly weapon in this offense.

  • markeyh says:

    I love your article (Marinofan13) EXCELLENT JOB!!!!!

    I hate that we have split, please consider reuniting so the Force can be strong. Will you consider submitting this article for the other site too? I have written a few on the other site and would be happy to submit what I have written over there here if anybody wants….but all this god given talent even with our differences SHOULD be under one roof…if some would stop the divisive post that further divide. I love BOTH sites and both should be given props for such fine work.

  • Rockphin says:

    David, I think your hate for DT is blinding you to his potential. He IS a power runner. With adequate blocking he makes the first guy miss, he trucks the second defender and carries the next guy forward for 2 yards before going down. All he needs is a little space. Those goal line failures you mention the entire D line was in the back field and there wasn’t an inch to squeeze through. When the snap starts at the 1 and the D linemen are hitting the back at the 5 yd line that’s a line problem. IMO Daniel Thomas is going to do very well this year when he’s healthy and has the offseason to get his game going.

    • Marinofan13 says:

      You made it!!!
      :)

    • markeyh says:

      DT will be our goal line power back, he also will be a nightmare as he pounds defenses into submission and Reggie tires them out chasing him all over the place. Our RB situation is the best in quite a few years IMO… We have both Thunder and Lightning…

      Need a backup thunder RB IMO…

  • Dink says:

    where’s omar.?.lol

  • Marinofan13 says:

    Markeyh,

    I’m not sure what to do about the rift. I mean, most of us are blog hopping between the two sites. As such, why post the same story to two different sites? There’s only a few on either side who WILL NOT GO to both sites.

    To post the same story to both sites would only serve to appease a handful of people, you know?

    But I’m TOTALLY with you that I want a Mob UNITED.

  • The Flying Pig says:

    Allright Matt Miller!

    M13 great write up. I am comfortable at RB going into the season. Porbably the only position on Offense I feel that way about

    I have a question. When you post video clips. How do you submit them so that they appear as a video screen. I want to post a vide clip in my submission. But I figured I would just cut and paste the link int he body of the article

    How do you post the image so it can be seen ont he screen like you did

    • Marinofan13 says:

      Matt Miller rules! LOL

      Thanks for the props, my friend. Just add the link in your story, and the Chieftan and Co will handle the rest, man.

  • Capt. Stubbs says:

    Dink,

    Nice avatar! Nothing like a nuclear winter to start your Monday Morning! LOL

  • fish dip says:

    Agree w Rockphin on Daniel Thomas

    Believe GM Jeffrey trading up and giving away draft picks has put DT under the microscope a bit more w fans measuring his worth

    Have seen some power running and just as DT was stopped at the goal line repeatedly, he also bull rushed for several nice 10 YD gains and moved the chains

    Think the Bess(t) is yet to come for Miami Dolphin’s RB DT

    Go Phins!

  • professorlou says:

    Nice Job MF13. If anything, the collection of running backs on the current roster gives Miami the luxury of looking at other positions in the draft. They look pretty well set with the guys they have signed and I beleive Messam, at 240 lbs and with his speed, will add a dimension to the offense not previously seen in the last few years.
    They should be able to mix it up pretty good with the players they have at the running back position this year. Philbin mentioned lining up Bush in a slot position. We may be looking at something like Thomas or Messam in the backfield with Bush in the slot and Clay at TE. Would be interesting to see.
    Here’s what I envision. “Reggie, how do you think you guys are going to play against the Patriots this week?” Reggie: “We’re gonna Messam up.”

  • Ken says:

    Just checked the SS. Still have access. When is H-hour over there?

  • Ken says:

    MF 13:

    What about Clay? Is he FB or TE? I see him more as a FB?

    • Dbolt says:

      Clay is moldable…he’s anything you want him to be :)

    • Marinofan13 says:

      I ABSOLUTELY see him as a TE and always have. Omar even made mention of management seeing him as a TE just yesterday.

      • Dbolt says:

        In all honesty i think Messam was bought in to hopefully be the FB in order to free up Clay to be the primary motion TE/Seam threat. That would allow you to match him up better with against any defensive alignment.

  • Rockphin says:

    David, would you say Mark Ingram is a bust? Is he too slow? Well his combine / pro day results are nearly identical to Danial Thomas’. 40 – 4.62 for both, 10 yd split 1.54 for both. bench press 21 reps each, and DT did it with a Hammy injury.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    lol Dbolt, i agree Clay is moldable! good one!

    • Dbolt says:

      Yeah, but in all truth he seems like he may end up being a special player for this team.

  • Rockphin says:

    Clay is moldable! I missed that. LOL

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Rockphin, i havent watched enough of Ingram to answer your question, but i have witnessed 100 percent of Thomas carries. im not labeling Thomas a bust, only disscussing where he was last year and where he needs to be this year.
    we have alot invested in Thomas, im hoping our coaching staff can develop him!

  • Walker says:

    First, let me say good morning to everyone here but special mention to the good Captain. Welcome back my brother.

    Markey,
    Let me reiterate, there are now multiple sites and what is done for this site is for this site. Several of the contributors here have had this plan in motion for some time now. This did not transpire simply because the SS decided to erect a paywall, which hasn’t even seemed to have taken place yet. Mr. Spikes and I have been working on this project for sometime to expand our horizons, which as you can see is primarily a Dolphins site but will also include other topics. I will also state that I have no animosity toward any other websites but there are now two and it’s not that difficult to browse back and forth as I did on the SS last evening. We are not merging sites and we are not sharing articles or back drops. Thank you for your understanding.

    Problem is

    The Dolphins have been struggling for many years in the Red Zone

    If only there was a 24 yr old Winning QB that was 2011 #1 NFL QB in the Red Zone and made available in FA for a few bucks more than signing an out of the NFL, 34 yr old QB w 25 interceptions & fumblitis in his last two years prior to major back surgery and couch sitting, then perhaps the Dolphins could score in the Red Zone

    … just saying

    Morning all. Awesome….a place to call home.

    M – Nice post. What if they see Messam as a TE? I haven’t seen anything to indicate that, but he’s the right size and speed. Fasano plays the role of Gronk, Messam plaays Hernandez.

    • Marinofan13 says:

      Thanks, Phelon. Good to see you made it!

      Messam as a TE… interesting thought. I haven’t seen anything to indicate that either (limited tape available), but that’s VERY interesting indeed.

    Fish Dip – I don’t think that the red zone problem was a QB issue. More the O-Line. They not only didn’t get any push, as often as not the defense was in the back field.

  • Rockphin says:

    It seems I’m the only one that can’t figure out how to get my girl up as my Avi. Can someone help my out here? I tried to follow Gigi’s instructions the other day, but I couldn’t find the linking stuff she was talking about.

  • fish dip says:

    Perhaps w hard hitting CB/safety Wilson
    Jimmy Wilson

    and that new upgrade at CB Dick Marshall

    Miami could trade or just cut sean smith?

    According to Omar Kelly sean smith was going to or should have made the Pro Bowl each of the last three losing Miami Dolphin seasons, so some football eyes might be interested in this Fraud Poser Boy Shucking & Jiving CB

    Would be best strategy to trade him within the division 😉

    • Phelonius Phish says:

      Uh oh…Home is that you and your Sean Smith hating self? No way, no how they trade or cut Smith. He held opposing QBs to a 76.4 passer rating last year after coming back from being bench.

      • fish dip says:

        numbers can be crunched in many dif ways to make even a chump CB that was suppose to be able to cover big WRs and TEs (and failed miserably at both) look good

        case in point, conversely the tall goofy CB Smith was rated almost dead last by Pro Football Focus by week 12 in the 2011 season of ALL NFL CBs

        CB Smith HAS NEVER even made one game changing play and probably NEVER will

  • Rockphin says:

    I think Pouncey did a reasonably good job as a Rookie last year without an off season, but he needs to get stronger this offseason. There were several plays last year where I saw him forced to his knees by the DT in short yardage situations.

  • Dbolt says:

    Redzone issues also had plenty to do with our play calling last year. At the goal line this team, with power personell, seemed to love to pull their gaurds when the lin was stacked. Columbo was horrible and VC always was getting beat on by the DT that kept lower. That was my main complaint on Daboll as outside of that area his plans were pretty effective.

  • stanger says:

    I’m gonna miss Bell. Our longest tenured player always gave us his all and never a reason to think he was anything other than one of the best guys around.

    Not much of a surprise though. Soon as they started talking about how the safeties had to be interchangeable they might as well have been mailing Bell a bus ticket out of town.

  • Rockphin says:

    Ok Here avatar! here avatar!

  • Rockphin says:

    Nope, that didn’t work!

  • Walker says:

    Captain,
    No problem buddy, I figured Easter Day, maybe in Ireland???, or out fishing. I just wanted to check on you and make sure you were holding up with the wife out of town. I am happy to see you back. Got a spot for a fishing blog still waiting on you bud, at your convenience!

  • Bat says:

    MF13

    Great job bro … As much as I ridicule the DT3 deal, I really hope he steps up this season. I think he gets a lot of grief because of distaste for Ireland and the questionable trade up.

  • stanger says:

    Another awesome write-up Mr. Spikes.

    Agree that the chances of a RB anywhere other than the 6th or 7th are slim.

    Bush will thrive in this scheme. Hoping DT will too. He was billed as a one-cut runner out of college and now we are going almost exclusively zone blocking…..so he’s matched up with his strength. Long as he stays healthy, we should have pretty good read on him after this season.

    • Phelonius Phish says:

      Good point. GB had several successful RBs that wouldn’t have been special anywhere else.

  • Rockphin says:

    Now, when I go to my profile page in wordpress my avi from gravatar shows up in the picture box on my wordpress profile, but it doesn’t show up when I post. Hmmmmm

  • herdfan says:

    Rockphin:
    Try signing out here, then back on again. Maybe that will do it.

  • herdfan says:

    ooops, need to change my avi back from my Easter one.

  • Ken says:

    Bat:

    I pretty much agree. I am not a huge DT 3 fan but the guy did flash talent from time to time. He needs to do it consistently and stay healthy. Still not sure if it was a great trade for us but I do recognize that DT 3 has talent.

  • Walker says:

    Speaking of the Devil, lol, we should definitely work on changing our name from the mob to another title as that group has indeed splintered. We are setting up the draft contest now but also would like suggestions as to what we could be called.

    Phelonius suggested the Pod, Bat: Legion, FFDIM: the Exodites. Keep them coming and I am all for the vote. Please note though that the website will remain Fin’s Mob ExoduSS as that is where we came from and a reminder of our roots, not to mention the copyright registry and the hassles of changing it (hence our 4th place finish, lol)

  • Rockphin says:

    Oh, well. Can’t seem to get my avi working and I don’t have the time to mess with it anymore this morning. I gotta go to a meeting in an hour so back to work I go. Hope everyone had a great holiday and I’ll see you guys later.

  • Dbolt says:

    M,
    Have Walker give you my e-mail….I have a few things that I’d like to brainstorm with you that might prove of interest in regards to the draft.

  • Walker says:

    Rockphin,
    The other day FFR tried for a while, got pissed, and when he left his NLCs appeared! Not telling you to leave though, your avi is always welcome here

    • Marinofan13 says:

      Mr. Walker,

      Please e-mail me D-Bolt’s e-mail when you get the chance, man. Thanks!

  • fish dip says:

    Believe Disastrous Red Zone Issues for the fish were both player personnel issues and play calling

    Anyone want to see QB Moore try to force the fade pass to WR B-Marsh for one more failed attempt

    or how bout Bush up the middle (no jokes please) in the Red Zone, only to watch him get pushed backwards 9 out of 10 times

    Wonder why QB/FB Tebow had no trouble in the Red Zone on a team w only one good WR and an average RB ?

  • Walker says:

    I think Philbin is the one who can fix this OLine and don’t doubt that Bush and DTinfinity can’t rank high as a rushing tandem.
    I’m almost at the point where I’d go ALL offense and tweak the D through the post draft cuts and trades

  • rcr1959 says:

    Anyway, this site ROCKS!!–iT’S ALREADY the best–and it will get better!!

    IF the SS stays FREE, I’ll still spend more time here than on any other blog BY FAR!!

    Wonder if the SS is free today because they’re using LAST YEAR’S CALENDAR?

    Again, GREAT WORK MF-13. Can’t wait to get you down here for a game!!

  • fish dip says:

    or how bout “Bush up the middle (no jokes please) in the Red Zone”

    No, that isn’t intercourse with the unshaven during the menstruation period

  • rcr1959 says:

    From ESPN: Miami Dolphins

    After passing on Kyle Orton, Carson Palmer, Matt Flynn, Alex Smith and not trading up to draft Robert Griffin III, the Dolphins should consider overpaying to draft Ryan Tannehill, writes Armando Salguero in the Miami Herald.

    Izzy Gould at the Sun Sentinel takes a look at what the Dolphins have done so far in free agency.

    Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Yeremiah Bell, said the safety would not be back in Miami. Rosenhaus said the Jets, Patriots and Eagles are interested in Bell.

  • Marinofan13 says:

  • Rhino says:

    Good synopsis MF13.

    I’m good with the RB situation.

    Unlike many, the DT trade did not bother me. With Ricky and Ronnie all but gone, we had to make sure we had a top shelf RB. DT will deliver… he’s just one of those guys who has a nose for football.

  • fish dip says:

    Hope Safety Y-Bell & CB Will Allen dont become a strong point for the Patriots, humiliating the Dolphins and further catapult GM Jeffrey’s inept decision making skills into the abyss

  • Walker says:

    Old Dolfan,
    I appreciate that and your write-up is our Daily feature for Wednesday. I am looking forward to your week by week of the Perfect Season as I am certain that others are as well

  • rcr1959 says:

    It’s going to be interesting to see who actually shows up for tomorrow’s meeting.

  • Rhino says:

    Bell was becoming a coverage liability… The defense is being adjusted to someday get past the likes of Brady, Manning, Schaub and company.

  • Capt. Stubbs says:

    Wyoming 85,

    Nice fish bud! Did you catch it on the fly or spinning reel? And is that a Big Brown trout. (that doesn’t sound right) Where in Wyoming are you. I have a best bud the lives and grew up there. He just opened a bar/old bar in Sturgis, I think it’s called the Old Eagle Bar.

    Anyways, to all out there feel free to bust my balls on anything I write or what comes to mind. I wiil not be offended and I come here as well to bust balls. My mourning period is over on the blog! But will keep you guys/gals up to speed if any leads come out.

    but r.tans’ ^side is intriguing.k/

  • Dink says:

    later capt.

  • Rhino says:

    If Bell gets signed by NE it is because he is still better than what they have. Allen to NE doesn’t worry me. I’ve been a huge fan of Will Allen for all of his time here, but very few guys can play CB and SS at a high level in their mid-30’s.

  • Rhino says:

    Walker,

    idea…

    I’ve seen some blogs (a blog for my fellow academic team coaches) that list the names of everyone who is currently logged-in. A quick glance and we know who to address rather than a random “are you out there”. Is that something that could be done here?

  • Walker says:

    Now that the Captain is back I may have to alter the rules of the contest in which the winner receives either the upper or lower half of the rookie Marino and a Jay Fiedler card wearing a jags uni. Choose wisely on whether you want the top or bottom, lol

  • CavalierKong says:

    Cheers, M13. Great write up, bro. You have a second calling if you so choose!

  • fish dip says:

    Believe X Dolphin veteran safety Y-Bell , leading tackler of four years and captain of the 6th ranked NFL defense would fit in very good on the Patriots w X Dolphin Veteran CB Will Allen

    Patriots went to the Super Bowl and almost won last season with the 31st ranked defense

    Adding these two secondary leaders would certainly improve the Pats defense

    Oh Jeffrey, What have you done?

  • Capt. Stubbs says:

    LOL @ Walker,

    I will send you my Fiedler on the roof card. 2nd place winner gets it!

  • Walker says:

    Rhino,
    We can check on that feature, we just got ‘Recent Comments’ yesterday, learned how to embed video, and still looking to fix the font. Right now I just go to 125%. Some like the reply and Bat hates it and we can’t have him completely content or he’ll create mayhem. Eventually we will have to cut the umbilical to our techy but I think we are getting close. Thanks for your suggestions and I’ll check into it.

  • Capt. Stubbs says:

    Later Dink!

  • fish dip says:

    So what the fish have now in the secondary is Fraud Poser Boy sean smith and safety Tyrell Johnson. LMAO

    Between the two of these secondary players they have played for a combined 7 years, and have 4 interceptions between them

    Hmmm …

    Oh Jeffrey, What have you done?

  • finfanrob says:

    m13,

    that sucked, that had to be the worst piece of writing i have ever read. where is mike B. when you need him.

    LOL, just kidding, everyone was blowing smoke thought i would bust your chops some. to be honest, i dont even have the time to read it, just wanted to have some fun. ok back to work, one week left and then it is ppppppppppppaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrtttttttttttyyyyyyyyyyyyyy time.

  • Walker says:

    Dip,
    I am leaving you in charge of an update piece on our secondary if you’d like to submit one, lol

  • fish dip says:

    just read the SS blog “Charting Miami Dolphin Free Agency”

    cannot believe how NJ PHIN FAN is attacking Gigi w vulgar name calling and extremely low insults

    Hope she has an older brother or family member to go after him

    These are the most horrendous comments ever seen and made to a nice, little woman who is part of your family

    Was not around the blog to witness any of this b4

    Can only say

    Thankful myself and others are not dealing with NJ PHIN FAN

  • D says:

    See who needs Omar when we have M13. Good writeup.

    I see Clay fully as a TE now, with this group in the backfield. Maybe some sets where he lines up in the backfield.

    Slanton and Messam will be the FB’s. Short yardage, red zone (if Messam can catch his size would make him sick across the middle in the end zone).

    Bush, probably primarily used in 30-goal yardage situations but used through the heart of the field as well.

    Thomas, most downs through the heart of the field and sparingly 30-goal.

    WCO isn’t going to be the best as for Thomas and his style, more caters towards Bush’s skills. I think Thomas gets plenty of touches a game but he is more fit for ground and pound offense. This is not to say he wont be awesome, it just doesn’t play off his normal skill set. It will get him opportunities to shine as a well timed RB draw, or if our passing game is opening up the run he may get a chance to bust off a big run. He will just have to be ok with playing his part and waiting for those opportunities to come. Messam, i dunno, but i just have a good feeling about him. He is a huge get the feeling he could be used like Graham or Gronkowski in the red zone.

  • fish dip says:

    Sorry to post that Walker,but i just read new comments from NJ and am sure the Mob would like to see how he treats this woman

    Repulsive

    Will not bring it up again!

  • fish dip says:

    Would like to contribute Walker, but maybe when fish dip has something nice to say about Jeff Irelands secondary

    Hope it’s soon on secondary improvement with new CB Dick Marshall, but def not seeing it w safety Tyrell Johnson

  • BoulderPhinFan says:

    nice write up mf13.
    I hope we see a lot of sets with both DT and bush on the field at the same time.

  • stanger says:

    “I see Clay fully as a TE now”

    D — I do too.

    Clay was drafted as an H-back, but as far as I know this WC O does not have one (someone please correct me if I’m wrong on that). Blocking is not his forte and he is basically too tall to be a FB and too small to be a blocking TE. That leaves seam TE. Anyone see another option?

    • professorlou says:

      It will be interesting to see how these guys are going to be used this year. I’m sure we are going to see things in this offense we’ve not seen before and I can see the passing game of this team being tough to defend. If they line up Bush in the slot and utilize Clay and then have two wide outs and Thomas in the backfield they could do numerous things because they can all catch. Thomas could even be lined up as a receiver if they wish.
      Put in some fresh blood at the wide receiver position acquired thru the draft and they could end up having one of the best passing offenses in the league. You may think I’m crazy but the talent level on this offense is much better than a year ago due to acquistions like Messam and the fact that you have guys like Thomas, Clay, Gates, Wallace and Moore with a full year of experience plus a full camp and preseason. It’s all on the offensive line as far as I’m concerned. If they get guys who can gel and pass block for either Moore or Garrard it could be a fun offense to watch. I don’t think there’s going to be anything “vanilla” about a Philbin-Sherman offense.

    lol

    “Fins Mob”

  • Walker says:

    Dip,
    It’s cool and one of the reasons we came here is to avoid that nonsense. I have been labeled the instigator by some but to avoid the soap opera I have maintained my silence on the issue. Some should know though that Gigi is always welcome here and will be well protected when the next meeting of the masses break bread. With that I proclaim, Death to the mob and mobfest, and let us welcome in a new era

    • stanger says:

      Walker — you have been extremely mature about the whole thing…..proud of you brother.

      But death to mobfest hits me hard. I know it just about vocabulary, but Mobfest was the best time I’ve ever had at a football game in my life……times two.

  • stanger says:

    “You may think I’m crazy but the talent level on this offense is much better than a year ago ”

    Prof Lou — I do think you are crazy as of right now, but I have a feeling I will agree after the draft. :)

    Going back to Clay, I loved what we saw out of him last year, but still wondering how he fits into this scheme. He had some really nice long completions last year but in most of them he was wide open. That may have been more to sneaking out as an H-back in Daboll’s scheme than anything on his part.

    And in the WC they love multiple wideouts, which will cut into his chances. Can he be our Herndenez….seems that is the real Q. I won’t even put the Gronk comparison him.

  • fish dip says:

    Must send FFR accolades

    As of now he is the only one to stand up to NJ for the repulsive hurtful things he posted to this woman on the blog mentioned above

    Would like to see more of the family, come to her aide :)

    • Walker says:

      Dip,
      I will not step foot from here on out on the pages of the SS. I went there and saw the revolting comments and can only control what happens here. For those that still call him friend, that is their decision but he will not be attending our activities and if becomes two separate ones, so be it. I plan on being at multiple games as it is this season. I choose not to have my family around unstable humans and I consider Gigi family

  • Gigi says:

    Walker, thank you for the kind words you are a true friend along with several others here including you fish dip. I do not care what someone else says about me because it is evident they are obsessed. This place is Home in more ways than one. Thank you my mob bros.

    Nice looking site. Well done… Great write up rg13…Been in the hospital the last week thinking I had hernia from 6 weeks ago but it turns out it was my back L-2,3 and 4 and all I needed was epidural shots. back still hurts but nothing like the hernia i thought i had.

    I see the ss still has people bickering and uncalled for personal attacks. What a shame when we all share the same compassion for our love of the fins. anyways good to find you guys again. I’m going to take a nap with one of my oxycodene 30mg that I have left over.

Got one from a buddy of mine on the last time the Phins were in the SB for tomorrow, Old Dolfan’s trip down memory lane, Bat’s follow up, Draft Contest, and something about FFDIM fucked up in Asia.

    MikeE,
    Anytime you want to send something in, it’s cool and the subject matter is yours. As you can see, we are not picky of our topics. We will probably go draft hard for the week leading up to and will analyze the draft afterwards but right now it’s an open forum. I want a cheerleader story from FFR, a Sean Smith one from Fish Dip, and I think that’s the only two requests I have.

    The Captain is setting up a hopefully permanent fishing blog that will have a link here. Also, Son and I are planning on going to camp for photos and a camp story. There is someone among us who has a journalism degree and we are working on some press passes. To be continued…

    A few weeks ago I mentioned that I would feel a helluva lot better if MF-13 was running the Dolphins draft as opposed to Jeff Ireland.

    If anyone drafts Tannehill, outside of the phins, it is seen as a good move. If we draft him it’s a bad move and if we don’t draft him it’s “Once again Ireland misses his man and the phin’s still have no answer at the QB position.”

  • Mike E. says:

    LMAO @ Bookman !! What could be better than wet cheerleaders? Ohhhhhhh!

  • Bookman says:

    Mike E…Naked wet cheerleaders??? LOL

  • Mike E. says:

    D-Bolt – Agreed bro – Total nonsense!!! We don’t need league wide f’n approval!!! If we have identified him as our QB, screw everyone else!

    • Dbolt says:

      Exactly! If they thnk he’s the guy just get him! I am not a big fan of trade ups, but if they are sure he’s our franchise QB….just go get him. I love how these pundits talk about Tannehill being a risk and then turn around and have us taking Coples and his selective motor.

      • Mike E. says:

        Could not have said that better myself. Sure, forget the QB, get the guy with the OFF switch, who frequently flicks it. Oh, that sounds bad. LMAO!!!

        • Ken says:

          And if we don’t draft him we will be criticized like that mock that MF 13 posted above.

          • Dbolt says:

            If I’m Ireland I go out to the Phins Draft Party and step up to the stage and just say “There’s your Franchise QB bitches and if you don’t like eat this!” with a few shakes of the junk and then walk off the stage. This would be after I started doing shots and Yeager bombs in the war room while ESPN televises the whole thing.

  • Rhino says:

    looks like the Dolphins are the favorite whipping boy for the media. So many people in media lack originality and so they go with whatever trends are in place… it’s called piling on lol

    I’m really looking forward to the first reports from players after being in practice with Philbin and Co.

  • Rhino says:

    So who is doing an piece on the o-line? Are they heading in to the draft with Murtha as the RT? are they planning on possibly waiting for draft and then resort to resigning Carey to move back to RT?

    Maybe this should be MF13’s next “Monday” submission. hmmm

    To be honest I’m most worried about the right side of the line than any other part of this team.

    • D says:

      Philbin didnt seem concerned with any position but RG, in his interview. He said group as a whole needed some work but felt had something to work with at each position except RG. There is one outstanding guard prospect, and he will go in the first probably middle of the round. There are however many good prospects that will last from early second into early third.

  • Mike E. says:

    Bookman – Wet cheerleaders in any state of dress, or undress sounds sexy as hell to me. :)

  • finfanrob says:

    cheerleaders $10
    naked cheerleaders $50
    wet naked cheerleaders $100

    wet naked bi cheerleaders chained to me sofa……priceless

  • stanger says:

    Maybe some of you guys are younger than me, but when I see the cheerleaders at the game the same one-two punch of thoughts hit me.

    First — ummmmm……tasty.

    Second — dude……you are a freaking pedophile.

  • Bookman says:

    LOL @ FFR

    “chained to me sofa”….AYE Matey!!!!

  • Walker says:

    D-Bolt,
    That sounds like something I will do on my last day teaching. Fuck you, and you, and you, not you, you’re cool…
    I think Ireland’s popularity would boom, at least with the Miami fans

    • Dbolt says:

      then he go on with “What is true love? Sometimes you think you’ve found true love and you take the early flight home to find to blinfolded people ready to double team your girlfriend!”

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Walker, i prefer not to be addressed as FFDIM anymore bro, thats when i was a mobster

    now im a exodite, or whatever we decide to be called, and i dont want any remembrance of the site that i no longer am a part of

    everyone can call me David, this is my name, lol

    and i saw the hate this morning at the $$. i agree with Walker that GIGi is family, and i dont want any part of people that are obsessed with belittling our sister. im actually hoping the paywall goes up quickly so we can all move on

  • Bookman says:

    Stanger,

    You are right, everytime I see the cheerleaders at a game I think you are a pedophile…LOL!!!!

    • stanger says:

      LMAO Bookman.

      Maybe I do a public service by letting others have a place to put the blame for their own perverted thoughts. :)

  • Ken says:

    D-bolt:

    Ireland should then announce to the crowd “F you Dez Bryant” and bring in some hoes and have a real draft day party. LOL.

  • Walker says:

    David,
    Old habits are hard to break. No problemo, I will… try… to resist the urge

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Bookman in the house! was great to finally meet ya live in person bro! and yea you can have colombos job if you want it, lol

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    nada prob Walker, i never said so before, so it was ok to say FFDIM

    this is a new beginning, and i want a new beginning to go along with it

    i love this fucking place! lol

  • Mike E. says:

    LMAO @ a lot of you, especially Bookman!

  • stanger says:

    “I don’t consider myself a pedophile as I have the maturity level of a 14 year old.”

    Ken — I’m sure you could get that one to hold up in court……or with your wife. lol

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    Walker, i can do a special blog for 4-20-12 for those interested in home and gardening lol

  • finfanrob says:

    stange you look at cheerleaders and think pedophile, i look at them and think, you gold digging ho, all you want is my money. now come and get it. :)

  • Bookman says:

    David,

    It was great meeting you as well!

  • finfanrob says:

    any else notice when stanger was looking at the cheerleaders at mobfest he kept counting to make sure he was at least 50 years away……wonder why?

    • stanger says:

      I hope you meant “yards” instead of “years” ffr.

      If it’s yards…..correct. I know what gets me in trouble.

      If it is years, I am looking far, far older than I am. :)

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    thanks FFR for defending GIgis honour this morning. it was valiant, and true. ill respect you a little bit for that if nothing else, lol j/k

  • Old Dolfan says:

    OK BOYZ; I’ve got a slightly different take on these cheerleaders. –I look at them from my seat in Row 8 (and, as Young Stanger can confirm, the view is SPECTACULAR) and I think “most of these girls are younger than my Grand daughters!”

    OUCHHHHHHH!!!!! –Oh well, at least my Grand daughters can (and DO) buy me beer at their expense!

  • finfanrob says:

    OD,

    any chance you can bring your grand daughters to the next mobfest?

    • Old Dolfan says:

      FFR–I really can’t speak for them but I’m gonna take a wild guess and say the oldest one, who is 6’2″, will come IF you are willing to babysit her 2 daughters (MY 2 Great Granddaughters) aged 6 and 2 AND the other one might attend if you’ll babysit her 1-year old son (MY Great Grandson). Also, BOTH husbands of my Grand daughters will be along AND they’ll be hungry and thirsty. One of the husbands is an Army Lieutenant currently stationed at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The other husband manages a restaurant.

      My wild-ass guess is looking at the Dolphin cheerleaders will be cheaper and about as productive as looking at my girls. Plus, my girls will by me beer but I’d doubt they buy for the whole gang. –But I’m just guessin’

      PS-I bought beer last time for Mobfest One and THERE WAS STILL BEER LEFT OVER!!–Won’t be the case for Mobfest II at SunLife Stadium!!

  • The Flying Pig says:

    This talk about how young the cheerleaders are is not likely to discourage me from staring at them

  • stanger says:

    “I’ve got a slightly different take on these cheerleaders. –I look at them from my seat in Row 8 (and, as Young Stanger can confirm, the view is SPECTACULAR)”

    Confirmed. OD has about the best view of the cheerleaders you can have outside of installing a video cam in their showers.

    Thank heaven when I had the privilige of his seats I went with a buddy instead of my wife.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

  • finfanrob says:

    david,

    the general rule of ‘dating’ is if you have the d**k you have to pay.

    funny story…..ok not funny story but one of me being a total ass. i was on a date once with this woman, she was just a total self absorbed bitch, she talked of nothing all night long but herself and her issues. she complained about the restaurant and service all night long. it was a miserable night, yet when the check came i still picked up the tab. to her credit, she did ask what her half was, i just looked at her and said ‘oh it is nothing that a blow job wont cover’

    needless to say i never heard from her again.

    • stanger says:

      ffr — that’s a movie moment. Would never do it, but I am glad to know someone that would. :)

  • Old Dolfan says:

    FFR AND YOUNG STANGER; Catch my estimated replies from my 2 Grand daughters a few spaces up the page below FFR’s question.

    WALKER, YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH ABOUT “PAYIN.” My wife just got a newer car, some jewelry, and some “other” goodies I can’t discuss on this blog. –And I’m a GREAT GRANDPA for Chrissakes!!

    …UGH on that PFT draft!!! DeCastro, Fleener, McClellin, and Randle all going in the 1st round would suck. Not to mention drafting Couples with the 8th pick. …No thanks.

    BTW, nice job on the write-up M13. I agree that the RB position shouldn’t be a priority in this draft.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    FFR, my stories are far worse.
    before i remarried i met this girl from the net. we went to dinner, and i could tell right away things were going no where.
    she was nice alright, but weirdorama. she showed me a picture of her with two black eyes standing on the railroad tracks hoping for a train to run her over!. im thinking OMG the tardhatch is out one patient!
    then she opened her purse and a bottle of pills fell out, i asked her, what are those for?

    she says, i have multiple personalities. then i thought, how can this date get any more bizzarre, lol
    so the clincher, i said. tell ya what, i DONT like the personality i see now, can i see one of the other ones? lmao

    From the SS:

    “NFL guru Gil Brandt was so impressed with Floyd’s pro day last week he suggested Floyd could go ahead of Blackmon.”

    Let that happen far as I’m concerned. Blackmon at #8 would be mighty fine.

    i met nother girl from the net one time, she was only reasonably attractive, but i found out she was only 27, but had false teeth, LMAO the rumour is true!!!!!!!

      i once dated a girl after college and we broke up because she didn’t like me being mad about her interfering with my golf dates and I told her so. Well we broke up and about 6 months later i went to bar and guess who was at the bbar with her new husband. She introduced us and being the nice guy I am I shook his hand and said congratulations. The guy shook my hand and didn’t say a word to me. I overlooked it and later that night found out he was a mute. My ex really went to extremes to find a guy who wouldn’t mouth off at her.

  • drg says:

    Piggy,

    I wasn’t impressed with either Foles or Osweiller. Osweiller is a little intriguing due to his size, arm, and relative mobility, but unless he drops to the third round I’d pass. Foles does nothing for me. Maybe fifth or sixth round. He didn’t win in college and that’s a big red flag.

    • Marinofan13 says:

      Conroy Black is rising on my charts. Utah has an OUTSTANDING program, to be sure.

  • The Flying Pig says:

    drafting anyone other than Tannehill or Cousins will be the equivalent to kicking me in the Osweiller – and that hurts…

    how does gruden get to do this thing show with qb’s coming into the draft. the guy has never ever ever developed a qb. as a matter of fact he only had that old guy with the raiders for two good years and has never ever come close after that with making a qb good. how in the hell doe……………oh wait. typing that ‘e’ gave me the answer. it is the four letter network. it isnt about reporting sports, it is about sensationalizing sports.

  • Marinofan13 says:

  • drg says:

    M13,

    Great write ups, btw. You going to quit your day job?

    I don’t know what to expect from Black. He was solid here in his only year starting and his speed is intriguing. He could be a real sleeper.

  • Mike E. says:

    Drg,

    What’s up man? Is that you water-skiing? Hard to tell.

  • Rgs322 says:

    Honestly, if we were to hear Osweiler named called when Miami was on the clock, it wouldn’t be before the 3rd round. …So we would be using one of our (2) 3rd rounders, which is not as bad as using our 2nd round pick on one of the 2nd tier QBs(Cousins, Weeden).
    Now if we were to trade down into the 11-15 range of the 1st round round and pick up an additional 2nd or 3rd, that would be even better. We would still be able to fill a good number of holes and still get a possible QB.

    With all that said, Luck, RG3, and Tannehill are really the only QBs I like is this draft. …So if we don’t get Tannehill, I would be content on waiting till the 1st round in 2013.

    • Walker says:

      RGS,
      Gotta admit I’d be ok with Cousins although I’d rather have Tannehill but we better get a playmaking WR with the first pick or a pass rusher who will immediately impact. I like Odrick but wasn’t too thrilled when his name was called

  • Marinofan13 says:

    Drg,

    Thank you, man. I appreciate!
    :)

  • Al in NJ says:

    Good right up MF13. This is going to be a tricky year considering Bush is entering a contract year. I can’t see Miami going RB given the host of problems at other positions that need to be addressed but there will be some talented WCO type RB available in this draft.

  • Al in NJ says:

    The more I look at it, the more I want the Fins to trade down and acquire a 2013 1st RDer coupled with 2012 2nd/3rd RD choices.

  • Al in NJ says:

    MF13,

    Cbssports.com had this write up today (and not good for Miami):

    “NFL Exec: ‘Half of the teams in the top 10 are trying to trade out”

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/rob-rang/18425809/nfl-exec-half-of-the-teams-in-the-top-10-are-trying-to-trade-out.

    All we can hope for is that Richardson drops to us and the Bengals start calling.

    The only legit trade partner I can see are the Eagles if Richardson is gone and Tannehill is available.

    The Eagles are interested in DL and QB and could get Tanny or the 2nd best DLINEman available if they choose to jump others wanting those positions (KC).

  • Derek says:

    Great Work M13…!!!

    Seeing some material like that is what I’m talking about on a Blog my man…

    I don’t think you have t live in “Bubble Head” land with your head in the clouds all the time… But having someone putting together some fun material like what you have done here is what builds moral and raises the spirits of the fan base…

    I tell ya man…. sometime reading so called “Local Beat Writers” (not necessarily Omar) but others who do nothing but accentuate the negative and constantly remind of us our teams shortcomings is a damned drag, man…

    It is like a breathe of fresh air getting stuff like this… To see there is more going on in Miami but failure and poor play.

    Thanks a Million M13…… Great stuff and I am grateful to have seen it…

  • Mike E. says:

    Al,

    I take it your not quite sold on Tannehill?

  • Rhino says:

    Al, I’m with you. Philbin wants to build through draft as he did in GB, give him lots of picks!!! Trade Back.

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    this is like last season, all the trade down scenarios to get extra picks, unfortunatly ireland defied common sense and trade up for a player that could have been had without trading. lets hope Philbin doesnt let ireland waste more picks this year too. if anything we need to trade up for a franchise qb, not rb otherwise stay put or trade down

  • finfanrob says:

    building thru the draft screams rebuilding. if that is the case some one wake me in 2016

  • Mike E. says:

    ” if that is the case some one wake me in 2016 ”

    FFR – You want get sacked? lol

  • Davids Deliverance from Evil says:

    i say miami stays put and select at the 8 spot, we never come out out when we trade up or down
    first time we got odrick and misi, neither one a star player, hindsight reveals misi stock going even lower due to his legal troubles and then thomas for 3 piks
    im not meaning to beat these trade events to deaath, but i dont want to see third trade disaster this season, i hope we stay put, or trade up for Tanny, any other trade situations im not trusting our GM to get it right

  • Walker says:

    David,
    I agree. I don’t mind Misi and like Odrick even more but his broke foot pissed in the vinegar even more. We wanted a playmaker and I think both will be solid, Odrick probably better but year 3 he better make a mark. The fact is we get contributors and locks but where are the diamonds in the rough. Hopefully one day an acorn will get squeezed really hard

  • Rgs322 says:

    I’m willing to wait till the end of this upcoming season before labeling Odrick. Personally, I think he’s going to have a very good year. As for Misi, I’m not so sure.

    Also, while I’m not a fan of the trading up for DT, I’m willing to wait and see on that one too.

  • Rgs322 says:

    Still, I think we have to continue to get talent in the trenches. That includes pass rushers and the right side of the o-line.

    I agree, I’m not hating on Odrick or Misi, but once I’d like to find someone unexpectedly that is perennial probowler from the get go. A monkey could roll dice and we’d have better luck it seems. I think Ireland has been ok, extremely average

  • Rgs322 says:

    Along with QB and WRs, we need to targets players like David DeCastro, Adam Gettis, Brandon Mosely, Shea McClellin, Vinny Curry, Chandler Jones, to name a few.

  • Walker says:

    Let me add that when you have average GMing, average coaching, and average QB play, you have shit on the field.
    I don’t think Ireland is horrible, nor IMO Sparano, nor Henne, but together, they were terrible. Can any of them revitalize their careers is the question

    So how bout a date sweetheart, Home vs NJ at Bonefest, Mobfest 2012 !

  • Walker says:

    Bat,
    So you’re saying it’s like driving an average pinto? lol

  • Bat says:

    Walker

    Are you talking about the car or the horse? …

  • fish dip says:

    Home says seriously, NJ bring u and your steroid water muscles

    shave your legs and your ass

    and lets see what kinda strength u have

    Home DIRECTLY challenges u to an arm wrestling match LIVE any HOME game Miami Dolphins

    And how dare u talk to a woman like that!

    • Walker says:

      As long as we can video it for a segment.
      Seriously, it’s ok Dip, we are trying to dissolve ourselves from other, less peaceful sites

  • Bat says:

    Walker

    Actually, out of those three, the closest to “average” is Henne. Sparano is a complete lummox who was way out of his depth as a HC and the jury is out on Ireland since we have no choice but to put up with him for at least one more season….lol

  • stanger says:

    Gronk really, really wants to hit the cover of Madden 2012.

    Funny thing I found in this latest campaign vid is what his apartment looks like. Essentially barren except for a Gronk fathead on the wall.

  • Gigi says:

    Awwww fish dip thank you, but I believe that person will have karma bite them on the ass sooner or later. :)

  • Mike E. says:

    Fish,

    Not to make a big deal out of it, but I have worked it out that NO ONE talks any sheet about any mobsters on the other site. If they do, it will be deleted immediately. I would appreciate the same courtesy here. I won’t ask again, and I understand if you don’t, just thought I’d ask.

  • Bat says:

    Stanger

    From what I’ve seen and heard from Gronk since the SB, he appears to have sustained at least minor brain damage, and that’s giving him the benefit of the doubt …lol

  • Walker says:

    Lol at Bat.
    By the way, I see you are steadily working on your errant and disinformative writing skills. One day you may be a quality author if you can learn to post the musical link at the end of the text without the reply function

  • Bat says:

    Mike

    We are not “mobsters” …We renounce our slave name …lol

  • Mike E. says:

    Bat – Regardless, I have made sure there will be ZERO tolerance of any negative talk about the good people here, , and did it out of respect for all of you people here. That is a FACT.

  • fish dip says:

    Guess Home is on a dif page than the Sheeple

    U hurt my sister, U call my sister out, U try to destroy her reputation only because she chooses NOT to date you

    and as a so called man u verbally attack her and would physically attack her if within arms length

    Take it out me NJ!

    Not her!

    U Pathetic POS

    Come on down and meet me!

    In Public

    In my back Yard

    Enuf already!

    That’s a woman

    U make love to woman or respect them and walk away or just walk away

    R U Insane!?

    Do u feel tough now!?

    Look, home is here for football, entertainment or fun shock entertainment,

    But U Never, Never, Ever talk to a woman like that!

    NJ U R disgusting!

  • stanger says:

    “he appears to have sustained at least minor brain damage, and that’s giving him the benefit of the doubt …lol”

    LOL Bat. That very well might explain it. At the least he’s Ringo and not Pete Best…..and I’ll take him as my TE any day.

  • Bat says:

    Walker

    LOL .. I aspire to no greater task than serving this outstanding blog through my questionable writing skills …lol

  • Gigi says:

    Bat: We are more like refugees….lol.

  • Mike E. says:

    Fish,

    Thanks for considering it. LMAO! :)

  • Bat says:

    Mike

    I’m with you bro …no point to it ..

  • Walker says:

    MikeE,
    Bat, David, and a few others along with myself unceremoniously dumped the mobster moniker beside bin laden’s corpse at the bottom of the Indian Ocean. I’m kinda torn between Exodites and Legion

  • Bat says:

    Stanger

    Gronk is a fine TE, but he may be headed for a “Shockey” like meltdown, as they share the same lack of even rudimentary intelligence …lol

  • Mike E. says:

    Walker,

    Legion is good. That was Bat’s.

  • markeyh says:

    Hello everybody, this was an extremely busy day for me I had no time to check in for the most part on either site until now. How are all of you doing? I hope you all had an enjoyable Holiday weekend.

  • Bat says:

    Gigi

    Refugees no more …we have found our true home thanks to our shepherd, Walker …lol

  • Walker says:

    Bat,
    Didn’t Legion jump over the cliff in the form of a flying pig?

  • finfanrob says:

    we were slaves???????

    ok great, not i am going to sue the ss for keeping me down all these years. i have been held down all those years by the man or omar. i want my share, some one give me give me give me

  • Bat says:

    ffr

    LOL …Reparations!!! …brilliant idea!!

  • finfanrob says:

    i dont want to be a legionnaire

    i propose we are called walkers wankers or walkers willies or walkers wastelanders

  • fish dip says:

    Fish,

    Not to make a big deal out of it, but I have worked it out that NO ONE talks any sheet about any mobsters on the other site. If they do, it will be deleted immediately. I would appreciate the same courtesy here. I won’t ask again, and I understand if you don’t, just thought I’d ask.

    In all do respect I know ur from NJ

    and met w the fellas and blog there

    but

    did u read what NJ wrote and posted to Gigi

    Man Up!
    and set your boy straight!

    This is a woman

    not a dude!

  • finfanrob says:

    kind of instead of highlanders we can be his wastelanders

  • markeyh says:

    I am out.

    Take care folks…it seems folks have properly aligned themselves to where they seem to fit just fine.

  • Gigi says:

    LOL @ Bat yes – we are HOME! 😉

  • finfanrob says:

    mike e,

    the difference is over at the other site you can work at that. you get to edit and monitor all comments. lol

  • The Flying Pig says:

    Ehem

    Piggy support no talking sheet proposal of Mike E

    Please stop

  • Mike E. says:

    Fish,

    I have spoken to him, but he is what he is. I will not tolerate him badmouthing anyone here on when I’m on the the other site, and that’s about the extent of my control. I can’t really make him do anything, as much as I would like to. That’s the honest truth, but it wouldn’t be due to lack of effort. I think you can take me at my word on that bro.

  • finfanrob says:

    markeyh says:
    April 9, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    I am out.

    Take care folks…it seems folks have properly aligned themselves to where they seem to fit just fine.

    i have made no alignment. i would be glad to post at any site my comments cannot be edited. as long as that is an option then any site that does such is not for me.

  • Mike E. says:

    FFR – I know you’re joking, but it’s the truth. I have also spoken to TN, the guy who runs the blog, and he agrees. He’s a good due, and he realizes that kind of behavior has no place there. It won’t be tolerated.

  • Mike E. says:

    Piggy – Thanks bro – Appreciate that man.

  • markeyh says:

    When you enter into another man’s house show him honor and respect his house rules. Or as some have chosen, just don’t go to his house if you have issues with the rules.

  • Gigi says:

    Piggy: How do we know there is no sheet being discussed about people here at the other site? My comments were deleted the other day then I was banned in record time. I went to say hello to you guys to be nice and nothing I said warranted deletion or being banned. No one shut your boy’s trap while he went off on me his comments were left. Thankfully I deleted the site and have no idea where to find it nor do I care.

  • finfanrob says:

    mike e,

    since i think very highly of you, i will be respectful of your opinion. but i wont follow what you ask.

    we never did such a thing on the ss, we constantly busted on each other whenever we felt like it whether one was online at the time or not. i see no reason why we cant do the same here. it isnt like anyone has been excluded from this blog. it was posted openly on the SS.

    again, the above is meant with all due respect.

  • Mike E. says:

    G – I’ll tell you how you know. Because I told you that’s the deal. Since I did that this morning, there has not been a negative word about anyone on this site. You can check that for yourself if you like, or you can trust me, or you can do both. :)

  • The Flying Pig says:

    Markeyh

    Are you saying taking off my pants when I enter another man’s house may not be acceptable?

    I just thing we need to narrow down respect and honor

    Pants off = honorable and respectable, no?

    😀

    If not it’s going to be much harder for me to blog here…I haven’t worn pants since the Internet was invented

  • Bat says:

    Markey

    Did you just make that up? .. What if the man’s house that you enter is a pedophile..or a serial killer ..or even worse, a Jet fan ..What then, smart guy? ..lol

  • fish dip says:

    ThanX Mike E

    Understand

    was not here for u guys previous Mob soap operas

    Just cannot fathom the extent of verbal abuse to a woman

    and thought u were actually defending what fish dip read on a blog to frankly a very nice woman and local Dolfan that has reached out to us men and engaged us, which is very difficult to do in a man’s world

  • Walker says:

    We had an accord not to censor anyone unless it became an issue where nobody came. We are not begging for business. With that said, a popular member got bashed on the mothership and few came to her rescue. I was invited to a site where I obliged and was banished immediately. There are no hard feelings but don’t act is if some of us haven’t been denigrated on a daily basis while ‘friends’ continued to blog there and then come here and ask others not to speak freely. It doesn’t work that way. We have yet to have an argument here. We hillbillies were doing just fine

  • Gigi says:

    I agree w/FFR. Also, Walker doesn’t have a secret password to get in here – lol.

  • fish dip says:

    Have undue respect for FFR for being the ONLY ONE w enough intestinal fortitude to kindly reach out to this blogger and say
    “WTF”

    were are the rest of u bloggers

    Dont care what u think about this blogger

    but Home 4 Christ’s Sake certainly is going to defend a woman or child

  • Mike E. says:

    Fish,

    Thank you too bro – I hate getting serious here, this site is too much fun for that.

  • Gigi says:

    Mike E: You wouldn’t lie to me so I trust what you said. But understand deleting my comments the other day then banning me was wrong when I just went to be cordial for you Tim, Piggy & Ken and say congrats to TN. So be it.

    • Mike E. says:

      It was bullshit, and it got me really pissed off! I wasn’t there, but I wish I was. It would not have gone down that way, I promise you that!

  • Gigi says:

    Have a good night guys and thank you fish dip. :)

  • Mike E. says:

    Walker – I asked. I didn’t demand.

    I didn’t come here to be a downer bro, or tell you what to do. It’s all good man. It is your site, and yes, you should do whatever ya’ll like. Nothing wrong with asking though, is there?

    • Walker says:

      MikeE,
      It isn’t my site, it’s the peoples site. Some had more to do than others but this has been in the making for a while and I am content with the good souls that helped formulate it.
      Things will change, the SS mob is over, and yes sides did form. People made their beds and slept in them. I can’t be more proud of what we have here and we aim to protect it. We will grow stronger, we are Legion, according to Bat that is.
      This isn’t why we built it though to debate sides of a two headed coin

  • fish dip says:

    Extremely Happy w the Amazing woman Home was fortunate enuf to meet and form ZZZ best relationship with, even moving Miami spread into his house

    No interest as Home has never even met Gigi

    But for the Love of God (or the love of Bat’s God, Uggh!)

    This is your family, your sister

    Brothers,
    PROTECT HER!

  • The Flying Pig says:

    Geez

    What’s it take to get people to notice that I’m not wearing pants!

  • Derek says:

    Walker….

    As you know from my private E-mails to you. I have my cards on the table. I have pretty much laid it out and gave you the picture of what and how I think…

    Please, so that I can understand… (not become involved, But Understand)…. what seems to be the difficulty that I have been reading about lately…?

    Is there some sort of animosity that exists between this blog and the blog TN Phin fan is operating…?
    Is there an issue between the Blogs…? Or is there and issue between certain people on them…?

    Once again… I don’t ask so I may become involved or take sides, but rather to understand what is going on so I do not inadvertently step in shit just trying to make conversation….

    I must say… after all that has occurred, I am terribly vexed to hear such matters… and even worse… I am terribly vexed to see some of it being played out on the SS Blog, leaving those who may wish to exit there for a better experience to wonder if they are jumping from the Frying Pan into the Fire…

    In all sincerity… could either you or someone else PLEASE explain WTF the Dust up is in this AO…? I am deeply concerned…

    “Our name is Legion…For we are many” …has a nice ring to it ..right? ….lol

    Fish Dip,
    All members are protected here. I just will not venture out into the wilderness looking for vengeance. I am at peace here.
    I am as Myomoto Musashi, undefeated samurai dwelling in a cave painting beautiful portraits

  • Bat says:

    LOL …Pancetta maybe?

    LMFAO @ Bat! “pancetta” Hahahahahahahahahahaha

    Bat,
    It’s all great until Legion is cast unto the pig who doesn’t fly over the cliffside. JK, I like Legion. It is growing on me. Death to the mofucking mob.

    Derek,
    It saddens me to inform you that yes, there are two splits to the mob, but it isn’t necessarily a bad notion

  • fish dip says:

    For the record

    blogger known as “Home”

    always thought “Mob” w a soft bellied braided haired Jamaican dude learning American football was bit outlandish

    esp cuz, Home grew up in Boston w Sicilian Real Deal Family & Friends

  • Walker says:

    Dip,
    The lady knows she was protected and thats all I’m at liberty to say. Good night

    i finally have read the previous posts and I ran acrooss 1 that mentioned a contest for the draft. I cleaned up one of the storage rooms (old kids room) and I ran across some old dolphins books. I have the championship 72-73 year books and plenty of autographs of those players. I will give up the Minnesota yearbook for the contest. JUST give me a address to mail to. The undefeated season book I will never give up.
