No question about who is running the show. Mueller gone. Next. Ireland in as GM. Next. Cam Cam gone. Cam Cam's coaching staff all gone (but two).




DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Cam Cameron was fired as the Miami Dolphins (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/mia/;_ylt=AkDJk5y3Yt_6_kiXRiiHFNMdsLYF)' coach Thursday by new boss Bill Parcells after plunging to an 0-13 start in his first year on the job and finishing with just one victory.
The dismissal comes three days after Parcells ousted general manager Randy Mueller and means the reeling franchise will have its fifth coach in five seasons.
Parcells began work Dec. 27 as executive vice president of football operations and quickly concluded the Dolphins need another fresh start.
It has been 37 years since the Dolphins fired a coach. But they never finished 1-15 before. All but two members of Cameron's coaching staff were also fired, although some might be rehired by the new head coach, the Dolphins said. Retained were assistant special teams coach Steve Hoffman and linebackers coach George Edwards.

Dolphins finish at least 8-8 next season?? Anyone giving odds on that?

Leigh Stenberg, the agent for Miami Dolphins (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/mia/) running back Ricky Williams (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/4653/), told the Miami Herald the team has resigned his client for the 2008 season.
Steinberg wrote in an e-mail to The Miami Herald that Williams received a letter from the Dolphins dated Dec. 31 and signed by Parcells renewing Williams' contract for 2008.
Steinberg also wrote that Williams is doing well in his rehabilitation from a torn pectoral muscle that ended his 2007 season after six carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/pit/) on Nov. 26. Such a letter would seem to indicate that Parcells wants Williams back next season. That is not surprising from a practical perspective. There is no certainty how soon Ronnie Brown will recover from a torn knee ligament.

All this after there was a lot of talk on ESPN about Tuna not wanting to resign Williams. I think Sean Salisbury was the only guy who said the Phins would bring him back.

Wow.




Bill Parcells has never shied away from boisterous receivers in the past (Keyshawn Johnson (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/3499/), Terrell Owens (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/3664/)), so the possibility of Miami native Chad Johnson (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players?type=lastname&first=1&query=Chad+Johnson&q=Chad+Johnson) joining the Miami Dolphins (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/mia/) doesn't seem so farfetched. But Peter King's mention of this in his Monday Morning Quarterback column on SI.com certainly is wishful thinking.
"Chad Johnson, by the way, sounds like a man who wants out. Wouldn't be surprised nor would several of my NBC peers if Bill Parcells, who is not afraid of bigmouths, deals his first pick in the third round to Cincinnati for Johnson."

So...with a new VP of football operations, a new GM, a new head coach (on the way), a new coaching staff, Ricky Williams resigned, and the possibility of Chad Johnson coming in...things are looking up for Miami.

I heard about that this morning. I don't really think 1-15 was all Cam's fault, that team had a serious lack of talent before the season even started. If anything I think the defense let them down, their D was supposed to be awesome this year and keep them in games, and that clearly didn't happen. But if you're going to clean house and start over, may as well get rid of the coach too. Hopefully Cam goes somewhere where he gets another chance.

The fins need to figure out their QB situation though. That's gotta be their next priority. Either stick with Beck and see if he can do it (0-4 as a starter and fumbling his first snap probably doesn't help him), hope a franchise QB comes along in the draft ( Brohm, Ryan, Woodson, Henne? Or wait for Chase Daniel or Matt Stafford, or even Tim Tebow ;) ), or throw big money at a free agent

Thank god! Haven't had much to get excited about since Dan the Man retired.

Would love to get Ocho, don't see it happening though, and they need a QB more. Parcells has said they only want solid character guys on the team, to instill a winning attitude and whatnot. That pretty much eliminates Chad from consideration (as well as three quarters of the rest of the league as well)

SI.com Truth & Rumors has a little tidbit about Keyshawn and the Tuna possbily being interested in being reunited (:wtf:), but I don't see that happening either, nor do I think it would help. Apparently he's stayed in shape, and he WAS damn solid most of his years in the league, but he's way past his prime and is gettin' up there in age. For the $$ I expect he'd want, I think Tuna cand Ireland could put that $$ to better use.

Regardless, it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out, starting with the coaching search and the draft, and, hopefully, ending with a SB title ;):D somewhere down the line, although at this point, I'd just be happy if they won 4 games next year and secured a playoff birth sometime in the next 5 yrs, lol.

When you look at the amount of games they lost by 3 points, the Dolphins weren't nearly as bad as their 1-15 record states. I think they defense was OK. I don't think it was their biggest issue. Cam Cam liked Beck, so with Cameron gone, I think Beck's shot at being the #1 in Miami has diminished big time. I think, now, Miami goes for a QB in the draft. Possibly Woodson. I don't think they can hold out for Daniel or Tebow.

I like them resigning Ricky Williams. They need WR help. Bringing in Chad Johnson would be huge. I would certainly rather have Ocho Cinco over KeyShawn Johnson. Key was an OK receiver. He made receptions. His yards after catch was horrible.

With the QB uncertainty in MIA, I don't see Chad wanting to play there. He gets pissy now playing for the Bengals, and that's with one of the best (Palmer) tossing him the rock. I think he'd be miserable with Lemon, Beck, or some rook right out of college trying to get him the ball.... then again, after Ricky and Ronny, he'd be the only weapon they've got (compared with Rudi, Housh and Henry in CIN), so he'd probably get the ball a lot, which he'd be happy about.

Tough to say. I'd much rather see Walker or Ocho come to MIA over Keyshawn (assuming Walker is past his injury issues and they'r enot going to be a chronic problem for him, and/or assuming Chad can be a model teammate), that's for sure.

Is there any team that would trade up to #1 this year? If Miami could trade down they could still get a QB and possibly a good WR (or O-Line/D-Line help). Of course we usually have to wait until after the combine for that kind of talk since there's always busts and studs that come out of nowhere

I still don't see them at .500 unless he also goes behind the bench, which ain't happening.


Steinberg also wrote that Williams is doing well in his rehabilitation

There is no doubt in my mind that he will try like hell to deal the #1 pick. Unfortunately for him, it has been more difficult in recent times. I would hate to be a GM under Parcells.:scared:

There aren't ANY better options out there than a retired, over-the-hill possession reciever with a big ego and potential lockerroom distraction? Is he going to be THAT much better than Booker?

Like I said, who the eff am I to question the tuna... I just hope he's got a little more up his sleeve than just Keyshawn, and hopefully Key still has some game left and can keep his mouth shut if this actually happens.

Not sure how I feel about that. On one hand, he's the heart and soul of the team, one of my fave players of all time, gave nothing but 110% all game every game, overcame semi-significant size limitations to become one of the top MLB's in the league over the past 10-15 yrs, but ont the other hand, his best days are definitely behind him, and I don't think he'll ever be the same after his concussion/neck/whatever it was injury issues this past seaosn.

Too bad, cause IMO, he reperesents everything an NFL player SHOULD be. He'll be missed by many, if not all 'fins fans for a long, long time.

So I see the 'Phins signed Ernie Wilford... what's the word on this guy? Looking at past #'s, he's never really done much with JAX, but that could be because they're a very run oriented team. Does he become the #1 WR on MIA? I can't see GinnJr being the #1 option just yet, so barring any other major signings by the Phins at WR, I'm guessing Wilford becomes the #1?

Admittedly, I don;t know much about him, but I don't see him putting up great numbers with Beck or McCown throwing to him. And on that note, somebody PLZ tell me that Beck or McCown are NOT going to be our #1 QB this year... any rumblings of the Dolphins trading for or signing somebody...ummm.... better? I'd be really surprised if The Tuna went into the season with either of those two as the starter.

Ernest Wilford - Serviceable receiver. The stats that he does have are misleading though. He had three TDs all season long, 2 of which came in week 17. Ernest Wilford does come in and take over the #1 receiver spot. With likely McCown throwing to him. Even if Miami drafts a QB, that QB won't start next season so it'll be McCown and Beck. McCown should keep the starting spot warm for Beck just like he did for JaMarcus Russell in Oakland. It looks as if Parcells likes Beck. Don't be surprised though if Chad Johnson finds his way to Miami on or around draft day. There are plenty of reports going around on satellite radio that Johnson is already claiming he is the #1 man in Miami next season.

His prescence alone might make the team worth watching, if they can get a QB who can get him the ball consistently. Right now Ronnie Brown is the only offensive weapon they have, and he's injured half the time.

I think right now it's about 50/50 they trade the pick, if not I think they will take one of QB Ryan, or someone from defence, like Dorsey, even though it looks liek he's droping in the draft.

Dolphins RB Ronnie Brown (http://www.footballguys.com/BrowRo05-1.php) said his recovery from ACL surgery is going well and he hopes to be ready for training camp this month. "It's all going pretty well for me," he said. "In fact, it couldn't really be much better." Brown sought out others who underwent the same procedure, such as Cardinals RB Edgerrin James (http://www.footballguys.com/JameEd00-1.php), and has used their advice to best recover himself. "Don't expect your knee to be the way it was right away," Brown explained. "It takes some time. The good news for me is that the rehab has gone really well. My flexibility is back and I should be ready for training camp."

Good news for Brown. Word is that Ricky Williams is actually doing well and in good condition. Good for the Phins, this will allow Brown to continually recover and not have to worry about relying on him too much.

Let the QB battle commence...


Though quarterback Josh McCown (http://www.footballguys.com/McCoJo01-1.php) is considered by many to be the front-runner because of experience, the Miami Dolphins have told NFL people the battle remains competitive with John Beck (http://www.footballguys.com/BeckJo00-1.php), and preseason performance will determine the winner. Several players thought McCown was better in May/June drills, but another starter favored Beck. Chad Henne (http://www.footballguys.com/HennCh01-1.php) remains an underdog, though nobody would be shocked if he was starting at some point this season. McCown, who is OK after his wood-chopping accident, has impressed with athleticism and mobility, but his accuracy must improve.

I am sure most have the pecking order has McCown, Beck, Henne... But I would not be shocked in the least bit if Henne slipped up on the list... You never know with Parcells.

Miami Dolphins HC Tony Sparano said that although rookie QB Chad Henne (http://www.footballguys.com/HennCh01-1.php) still makes some college mistakes, he's been impressed with his poise. "He doesn't say a whole lot that way but I like his presence in the huddle," Sparano said. "He seems kind of relaxed out there. It'll be interesting to see him when the game is on. I know this guy has played in bigger crowds than we'll play in front of. He's played in front of 100,000 people out there in critical situations so I'm kind of interested to see how he handles a game when it's really moving as fast as we try to prepare him for."

Positive words on Henne. However, all the guys that played for Michigan are used to playing in front of 100,000 plus people...so I don't see that as an issue. Keep an eye on Henne.

Ummm...... kicker news.


The Dolphins continued its youth movement by releasing veteran PK Jay Feely today, paving the way for 22-year old undrafted rookie PK Dan Carpenter. Carpenter has taken advantage of Feely's injured groin injury, most recently by converting field goals of 41 and 49 yards on Saturday against Tampa Bay. Feely, 32, set the franchise record for accuracy last season converting 21-of-23 field goal attempts (%91.5). He said five or six teams have already expressed interest in his services.

An R&R double-headed RB monster is gonna be the key to the Phins putting points on the board this year. If the running game isn't working, teams are just gonna tear their passing game apart, regardless of how 'accurate' Chad is.

Interesting!!

Just a rumor (thank god!), a stupid one at that. That's like something Eklund would toss out. I'm disappointed in Mort.

Ronnie Brown-RB- Dolphins Aug. 19 - 1:31 pm et


Coach Tony Sparano said Tuesday there's "no chance" the Dolphins will trade Ronnie Brown.
"There was no discussion of that internally or externally," said Sparano, who said the rumor wasn't a tough one to dispel. "That is easy," he said. "I wish they were all like that." The rumor didn't really make sense when Miami's whole offense is based around the running game. Ronnie remains a risky mid-round pick, but this should calm things down.

I couldn't be happier that I decided to grab Ricky in KKs league. I didn't think it would turn out to be anything other than a wasted pick, but since my two other starting RBs (T Jones and Parker) got a total of 4 TDs, I had to protect Brown.

I was listening to podcast last night about fantasy football and they kept going on about how huge Ted Ginn was going to be this year.

Did some reading today at various sites and that sentiment was echoed.

I have Williams and Ginn on a few teams and to be honest I'm encouraged that these 2 could be huge this year.

Ronnie/Ricky...


Dolphins HC Tony Sparano vehemently denied rumors that the team is trying to trade RB Ronnie Brown (http://www.footballguys.com/BrowRo05-1.php). "No chance that we're trading Ronnie," Sparano said early this afternoon. "I understand another rumor is flying out there. Last week, it was (quarterback John) Beck. This week it's Ronnie. There was no discussion of that internally or externally. None." On ESPN's Monday Night Countdown, Chris Mortensen speculated that Brown could be playing for another team this season based in large part to RB Ricky William's success this preseason.

Words are being twisted... It was mentioned about how thrilled Miami is with the play of Ricky Williams, and that because they are so thrilled the team could go on without Ronnie Brown. No comment was ever made from Mortensen (at least that I have seen) that the Phins were looking to trade Brown or that Brown will be playing elsewhere.

But then again, Jason Taylor wasn't going anywhere either...

Dolphins Notebook: Nagging injuries frustrate Joey Porter
Click-2-Listen
By EDGAR THOMPSON

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

DAVIE Beginning in March, Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter began working to put last season behind him.

But Porter will need to be on the field if he hopes to rebound from the most disappointing season of his career.

Three weeks into training camp, it hasn't been easy. Porter has piled up nagging injuries like he used to accumulate big plays.

The latest setback is a sprained knee, which added to his stiff back, sidelined him during Tuesday's two-a-days.

"It's frustrating when you put in the amount of work you put in and you're not as healthy as you want to be," Porter said. "For me it's been one little thing to the next little thing. It's just frustrating."

Porter also sat out the first three days of training camp with a sprained ankle and missed the Aug. 9 exhibition opener because of his back injury.

Porter, 31, played last weekend at Jacksonville, but said he's not sure how or when he injured his knee. But his recent history of knee problems, including three arthroscopic procedures since the summer of 2006, is not a good sign for a 10th-year pro coming off a poor season.

Porter, a three-time Pro Bowler in Pittsburgh, signed a five-year deal in March 2007 with $20 million guaranteed. He finished last season with only 51/2 sacks, including 11/2 during the season's first 11 games.

Last weekend in nearly a half of action, Porter had just one tackle against the Jaguars.

Coach Tony Sparano said he expects Porter to bounce back.

"It frustrates me for Joey," Sparano said. "I know how important it is (to him). We don't have a game (today) so we just need to make sure that this thing is right and that we can get it right."

Dolphins RB Ronnie Brown (http://www.footballguys.com/BrowRo05-1.php), injured in Saturday's win over Jacksonville, returned to practice Thursday afternoon. Brown participated in pass-catching drills while using a soft cast to protect his sprained right thumb. Brown is still expected to miss the final two preseason games for the team, but is hopeful to return for the regular season opener.

Good to hear that the thumb doesn't seem like it is going to be a major concern. Still looking at Ricky Williams to be the man, at least in the beginning. Remember that Brown is coming off of major knee surgery so having a guy like Williams who is actually playing and impressing is a good thing.

The Miami Dolphins officially named QB Chad Pennington (http://www.footballguys.com/PennCh01-1.php) their starting QB on Monday. "I'm excited about the opportunity to lead this team. We've worked extremely hard over the last two weeks and I'm proud to be a Miami Dolphin," said Pennington.

Chad has only one person to thank at that is Bill Parcells. I am still sticking with the Dolphins going 8-8.

Miami Dolphins HC Tony Sparano said today that he expects RB Ronnie Brown (http://www.footballguys.com/BrowRo05-1.php) to play in the team's final preseason game this week. "We're just going to take him out there, go through pre-game warm-ups, do those kinds of things, and then I'd like to try to play him," Sparano said. "And we'll see whether or not we can get some carries."

Good news for Brown, let's see how he performs if they can get him in the game.

I got 'em @ 3-13. Maybe 4 wins imo. Even though they improved the Jets did too and Buffalo is gonna be solid...then there's NE....tough deal.

They have a pretty easy schedule outside of the division... Looking at their schedule here is what I see and what is winable.

Week 1 - vs. Jets -- WIN
Week 2 - @ Arizona -- win/lose
Week 3 - at New England -- lose
Week 4 - bye week
Week 5 - vs. San Diego -- likely lose
Week 6 - @ Houston -- win/lose
Week 7 - vs. Baltimore -- win
Week 8 - vs. Buffalo -- win
Week 9 - @ Denver -- lose
Week 10 - vs. Seattle -- win/lose
Week 11 - vs. Oakland -- WIN
Week 12 - vs. New England -- lose
Week 13 - @ St. Louis -- win/lose
Week 14 - @ Buffalo -- lose
Week 15 - vs. San Francisco -- win
Week 16 - @ Kansas City -- win/lose
Week 17 @ NY Jets -- lose

So... I have them at 5 straight up wins. There are also 5 games that can go either way. Now there is no way that I see them winning all 5 of those games, but three of the five are attainable. I think week 2's Arizona game all depends on who shows up on the field for both squads. Same goes for week 10's Seattle game. If this game was played out in Seattle I would chalk it up as a loss right away. Week 16's Kansas City game is the other that can land on Miami's side. Kansas City is just not good. The only issue is playing at Arrowhead. Not an easy task for any team. Straight up losses come at the hands of the Patriots twice, Jets once, Bills once, San Diego, and Denver.

Don't be surprised when the season ends that the AFC East looks like: New England, Buffalo, Miami, NY Jets. That is all I am saying.

Sat, Sep 6 Jason Cole, of Yahoo! Sports, reports Miami Dolphins RB Ricky Williams represented himself in negotiations with the Dolphins surrounding his contract extension. Williams' previous agent, Leigh Steinberg, is not currently certified by the NFLPA because he let his certification lapse in 2007 for business reasons - Steinberg is in the progress of becoming certified with the NFLPA again. A source noted Williams will receive a roster bonus for every game he is on the team's 53-man roster this year. If he is injured and placed on Injured Reserve or if he is released, Williams will not receive money for those games. In 2009, Williams will have a $3.4 million base salary and a $100,000 workout bonus for the offseason. He did not receive any guaranteed money as part of his new deal.

I am no expert on contracts in the NFL....Am I right in thinking Ricky has really stuck his neck out here?

yes he is and it's exactly what he has to do in order to get guaranteed money in the future. With his reputation, no team is going to risk a lot on him unless he shows he's in this for real. I think it's a smart move by him if he believes he can stay healthy and off of drugs.

RB Ricky Williams acknowledged he was briefly tempted to smoke marijuana with the extra free time he had because of the Dolphins' bye week.

"There was definitely an urge," Williams said. "But I just thought about what I have to lose and it was easy. The urge didn't last very long." Williams has grown quite familiar with the NFL's substance abuse program after multiple positive marijuana tests, so fantasy owners will be glad he's staying strong and avoiding suspension.

What does last year have to do with them being pretty fun to watch this year? I'm not saying they're going to the Super Bowl, or even the playoffs for that matter, but they've beat two of the top teams in the AFC (if not the league) in their last two games (granted NE was without Brady, but still...), in convincing fashion, with an exciting D making lots of key plays, and an offence that - although not a powerhouse offence by any means - is really fun to watch, especially when they go into 'Wildcat' formation, despite not having many big names aside from Ronnie, Ricky and Chad.

I haven't enjoyed watching a 'fins game as much as I did yesterday since Dan the Man was under center tossing lasers all over the field... that's all I'm saying. Not saying they'll make the playoffs or any of that crap. I'm not even going to go as far as to say they'll go 7-9, let alone 8-8, or -heaven forbid - 9-7 and possibly a playoff birth. I'll be happy if they win two more games this season! All I'm saying is that they were damn fun to watch yesterday, which you'd understand if you watched the game. I haven't been able to say this sorta thing about my 'Fins in yrs, so I gotta take the opportunity when it presents itself!

We're you forced to watch that pitiful Lions game yesterday dubzz? If so, I can understand your bitterness (jealousy? ;):D). I tried to watch some of it, but I just couldn't. The commercials during the 'Fins game were more exciting then the Lions game, lol.

"I know for sure that I had both his arms when the ball came out," Porter said after the game. "I'm looking for an apology or something on Tuesday or Wednesday on NFL Network, but it will be too late by then. The game's over. ...

That 'phins schedule is brutal... But after week one and week two losses to Atlanta and Indianapolis, there is potential to win the next 4... hahaha... DW13, just f*cking with you because the Phins play the Jets twice in their first 6 or 7 games.

Their draft... I like the Vontae Davis pick. I am a little baffled over the 2nd round QB play there. With Pennington playing OK and Henne at #2 not sure why they wanted or needed to use a 2nd round pick on a guy who will battle for #3 at best. Like Smith, Turner, and Hartline... after that...

Armando Salguero, of The Miami Herald, reports while all of the talk of the Miami Dolphins quarterbacks has surrounded the drafting of Pat White (http://www.footballguys.com/WhitPa01-1.php) and how second-year QB Chad Henne (http://www.footballguys.com/HennCh01-1.php) is slated to take over as the starter in 2010, it has been overlooked that QB Chad Pennington (http://www.footballguys.com/PennCh01-1.php) remains the starter in 2009

Unless there is an injury to Pennington, I think it is safe to say his job is safe. Pat White is a good fit for the Wildcat, but he'll have to be listed as a WR since NFL rules state the 3rd QB can only come in as emergency and are normally listed as inactive.

The NFL, more than any other league, is all about reuniting with your guys. Right or wrong, people don't like using "leftovers" unless they have to. Haley/Pioli had no allegiance to Thigpen but Cassel was Pioli's guy in New England. Whenever guys change locations, they load up the truck to bring people with them.

It's interesting to hear you say that, because I'd heard his numbers were better than his actual play might indicate. I really only got to see him play one game, but the talking heads were saying that he was a better fantasy QB than an actual NFL QB. Though I think Miami's offense does seem suited to his skillset, so maybe he'll have some success there

That was a beautiful deep ball to Ginn. Able to be caught in-stride, don't have to stretch out for it, defense can't contest it, etc. Looked just like it does during the warmups.

Chad Henne really stepped up and answered the challenge in the 2nd half. Able to make the big plays when the Dolphins needed him to and not turn the ball over. Can't ask much more than that.

I don't think any experts or analysts can still call the wildcat a fluke or a gimmick anymore. Teams are clearly still having trouble defending it.

The pass to Ginn was merely a product of the run setting up that dagger. Props to Henne though for not making any mistakes (although our defense didn't even pressure him).

Again, props Dolphins and I'd definitely say the East is a 3 team race.

Give the kid some credit. 20 for 26, 241 yds, 2 TD, 0 INT doesn't happen by accident, especially against one of the best defences in the league. Not sure what that works out to in regards to QB rating, but it's gotta be pretty damn high.

Nothing special? He managed the game perfectly, dropped a PERFECT pass into spot where only Ginn could catch it (in stride no less) on the bomb, didn't make any stupid/bad plays, against what is supposed to be one of the best defences in the league.

I think I sense a little bitterness ;). He was much better than Sanchez, which may be why you're not giving any credit? Without those couple circus catches Edwards made, Sanchez's numbers would be terrible. Henne had a solid - if relatively unspectacular - game... give him some credit. He made the plays that were there and didn't try to force the plays that weren't there.

not saying he needs to be anointed the next Manning/Brady/Brees, but he's led them to two straight wins now since becoming starter, with solid performances in both gms, and it just sounds like it might be a little sour grapes from you dawinna ;):D.

That aside, what an entertaining game! Glad I stayed up to watch the 4th quarter, what a great 15 mins of football!

P.S. I agree that the Edwards TD shoulda counted, but the Jets scored anyway, and got that call back later on with a TERRIBLE pass interference call on MIA that lead to a Jets TD on the following play.

He managed the game. He wasn't a game breaker and he wasn't special. I'm not discrediting what he did, he did exactly what the Dolphins wanted him to do.

The fact of the matter is, he never faced a 3rd and distance, Props to the Fins for being able to run the ball so successful so they didn't have to face them, and he really had no pressure whatsoever from our defense, again props to the Fins O-Line for that as well.

Not taking anything away from the kid, but this is NOT the game you want to judge him as the future QB. He had no pressure whatsoever to make any big throws on a big down. The throw to Ginn was a very nice throw, but it was a credit to the run game. Rhodes and Revis were caught peeking and he put the ball on the money.

Again, Props to Henne for doing what he did, I just don't think this is the game you want to judge him in.

I'm curious what you guys think about Henne. To me, Henne is plain and clear the next Dolphins franchise quarterback and I predict lots of 4000+ yds 25+ TD seasons in his future. Hes been inconsistent but what rookie QB is ever not inconsistent? He Hes throwing at a very solid 200 YPG and has thrown 350 and 330 yard games this past month. Hes going to have to learn what throws not to make because NHL defensive backs are way better than NCAA backs, but all QBs come into the league throwing lots of interceptions for that reason.

I think hes got bright things ahead of him.

Marshall and the Dolphins subsequently agreed on a four-year, $47.5 million contract extension that includes $24 million in guaranteed money, according to a league source.

Yup, with him signing his tender prior to being traded, it's basically 5 yrs, $50 mil, making him the highest paid WR in history. Hopefully he's worth it and can stay out of trouble despite being so close to home. It's a bit of a risky contract IMO given his past issues, but as long as he can produce on the field and keep a low profile off of it, I don't mind it. That's obviously easier said than done though.

My point was, we're not even sure he has much of a say in drafting (Alot of GM's are dictators in player personnel). I know what you were saying, but I was just giving Cam some credit for being an awesome offensive coach.

Obviously, didn't make it as a HC although if he keeps his good work up again, he will get another shot if he wants it.

Awesome player. Will fit a 3-4 DE but the Fins had enough of those, and didn't have a pass rush. I think they took Odrick to block the Jets from him.

So you think they took him simply so that the Jets wouldn't get him? Would the Tuna really do something like that? Not saying you're wrong, you follow football much closer than I do, but that kind of philosophy with a 1st rd pick doesn't make much sense to me...

I don't think that's the "only" reason because Odrick is a hell of a football player, but the Fins have 3 or 4 really solid DE's already, no? They have lost 2 pass rushers, and have nothing backing them up truly (Cameron Wake?) and they had Kindle/Hughes sitting there for them. Just shocked they didn't take either of them.

It doesn't bug me because we got Kyle Wilson.

Jeff Ireland is already talking about moving Odrick inside, outside, all over the line, not necessarily keeping him on the end. not sure if that makes any diff in regards to how you feel about the pick, but that's what I'm hearing.

Good article on the pick and the reasoning behind it here:

He's an end in the base defense though. If they plan on using more 4-3, then yeah the pick makes more sense to me.

Do you have any idea about Dez's parents?

Dez's mom had him when she was 15 years old, and had something like 6-8 other kids along the years and has served numerous spells in prison.

Don't tell me Dez Bryant, a kid who was Academic All-American, Football All-American, and is now a professional football player has embarrassed his parents. I don't think he would give a shit even if he did.

His parents let HIM down. He could of easily just of become another "statistic" of a kid that fails because of a horrible up-bringing. Instead, he proved doubters wrong, and he's now making millions playing a sport he loves.

The sad part about this whole situation is that his Mom was probably a whore, and his Dad was probably a pimp.

Either way, Dez Bryant hasn't done a DAMN THING to embarrass his parents. His Parents are an embarrassment on society. Having a kid that you can't take care of, be there for and love.

I salute Dez Bryant. He might of done some bone head things, but he's never been in legal problems, or anything like that.

It's a common misconception about Dez. I completely understand.

The things he has overcome is pretty incredible to me and he gets high remarks on my end.

I hope someone in the NFL, or the Cowboys organization can pair him up with some good people because he's obviously never been guided by anything near a father figure.

The whole "lying to the NCAA" thing was blown out of proportion. He had so many people telling him his football career was over because of the Deion meeting, that he panicked. After all, he really was just a kid.

I wish him the best, and wish stuff like this wouldn't come out about him. The kid has had alot put on his table.

Either way, I can't blame Ireland for the question if that was Dez's answer in the meeting.

He doesn't have the upside that others might but he won't kill you.

I just traded for B.Marshall the day before this happened and while I'm normally not happy seeing the starting QB of a team benched when I have the #1 WR, Henne was just not getting the ball downfield or to Marshall at all. I hope Pennington has better success.

Kyle
11-11-2010, 05:43 PM
This is a silly decision. Henne is putting up numbers as good as Pennington ever has in career (The exception being a more poor TD:INT ratio) and yes, he has been less than spectacular, but is Pennington really any sort of upgrade? Absolutely not, and he isn't the franchise quarterback going down the line. Henne is. This is a silly delay to Henne's development, hes playing his weakest game and still has the team at .500 (And could've easily made it 5-3 over that Steelers game) and putting up respectable passing numbers. He needs to be allowed to keep growing, the Dolphins need to accept the fact that they aren't legit superbowl contenders and worry about the wellbeing of the club over taking any possible steps to improve this season. This doesn't even improve this season. We know exactly what Pennington is capable of and its hardly any better than this "dissapointing" season by Henne so far. Hennes potential upside is leaps and bounds higher than any numbers Pennington could be projected to put up.

Oh well, heres to hoping Pennington self destructs.

Don't forget they already offered Gruden $7+mil which he turned down. The word is they are offering Harbaugh more. If they end up not hiring someone new and stick with Sparano, how the hell do they think he is going to feel???

:lol:Just like the Chefs canning Haley after he took that team to the playoffs last year in spite of Pioli's awful drafting and free agent moves. Sparano takes the bullet here because Ireland never seriously addressed the quarterback position. This is a classic example of the BS theory that you need a left tackle before a QB. Matt Ryan would certainly not help that team :rolleyes:.
