Dolphins Talking to Ovie Mughelli on Thursday

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, free agent fullback Ovie Mughelli will be flying to Miami tonight and will be visiting with the Dolphins on Thursday.    He turns 32 this year, and missed most of last season with a torn right MCL.  That being said, he was a Pro Bowler as a lead blocker for the Atlanta Falcons in 2010, and Miami doesn’t currently have a true lead-blocking fullback on the depth chart.

This could be one of those small things the Dolphins do that could be a big help.  Maybe in those goal line situations when we couldn’t just pop it in and had to settle for Field Goals?  (FIST PUMP!).     We have missed Mr. Polite in my opinion, and this could make up for that.

    JS has been a busy puppy lately, thanks for wondering oscar.

    I try to keep up occasionally, but there hasn’t been many subjects that haven’t been re-re-re-re-re-hashed by everyone including myself lately, and a heckuva lot of personal sniping. So when I see something that compels me to comment, then I try to find time.

    At this very second I’m waiting for stuff to sync up, so time wasting.

    …I don’t think the statement that Cam Newton has the same or less experience at quarterback as Tannehill is true. Newton may have only started at a major college program for one season. But he did play the position for his whole collegiate career.. He was a JCO National Champion in 2009.. He played quarterback at Florida prior to that season, backing up Tebow..

    Anyway..the comparisons are meaningless at this point. What Cam Newton did in college, even in his first year as a pro have nothing to do with why, or where we drafted Tannehill. The team obviously sees potential in Tanny, and throught their own evaluation decided he was worthy of a top 10 pick. It seems like a risk on the outside beacuse the gamble is purely on prijected ability. Not a large resume, or a list of impressive accompishments in college.

    I will say this. As much as I debated the idea of drafting Tannehill. A lot of people have put their collective necks on the line for him. We can call it a reach, we can call it smart..Call it whatever you want. I think the team will be very coservative with its approach to Tannehill. IMO if there is any doubt that he needs more time. The team will make sure he gets what he needs to try to better the odds Tannehills pick pays off aces.

    Hmm.. that would be a very tough call, dd. Suppose that during training Camp and the exhibition Season it is found out that Tannehill is the QB that moves the Team best. What do you do, play him, let him sit and learn more? Remember, he’s a rookie and he might not be up to speed against the very good Teams, but, those Teams don’t know him either. I would play him if that were the case.

    Oscar, who’s buying and watching all of the speculative stories? Consumers, the people in this country love it. If they didn’t reporters wouldn’t be writing it. They are giving the people what they want. They’re trying to make a living.

  5. phins78 Says:

    Aloco that explains a lot, I’ll lay off now as long as you play nice. I just get mad when you talk about peoples looks or make fun of someones ethnic backround. Coming from another country I would think you could be more sensitive to the latter at least.

    I see the term “RAW Talent” used a lot lately and specifically about Tannehill.

    Raw means not fully cooked — needs time to become cooked. For the sake of what we are talking about it means. They have not reached their full potential. They need experience in the NFL to reach that.

    So if they are not “RAW” then they are fully cooked. They’ve reached their full potential. And they have experience playing in the NFL.

    With that in mind is there anyone that isn’t “RAW” coming out of college?

    Some people look at Tannehill’s 19 games and say he lacks experience. Why not look at the fact he’s only played 19 games and he’s that good? He’s got all the talent to make all the throws and has the athletic ability to make some plays once the play breaks down. He’s “RAW” yes but do you want someone that has reached their full potential or “RAW” and hungry to learn?

    I say it is going to be a fun year for us Dolphins fans.

    That is completely known to Us, 78. But, there are many ways to entice the Consumer without the Media distorting the Truth. That is Foul, IOO.

    C’mon man! I’m quite familiar with Handcuffs, tazzers and 9mm, but that don’t make me a cop!

    So, in your mind, because Tannehill knows Sherman’s system/offense, that makes him what?

    A. A wiley vet?

    B. A Hall of Famer?

    C. A Pro Bowler?

    Sorry, I don’t care if he knows our playbook, Green Bay’s playbook and Aldous Huxley’s Doors of Perception by Heart! Tannehill is an extremely raw talent by any NFL QB-ing standards.

    Attention shoppers!

    The problem with the T-Hill pick might simply be that he was taken ‘too high’ in the same way that Pouncey was taken ‘too high’ last year (for a center). Value!

    Luck was taken at the precisely right spot (obviously) and anyone with two eyes can see that the RG3 trade was perfectly reasonable, but using our pick on T-Hill was just patently wasteful considering that the next team looking for a QB got one with the #22 pick. Value!

    If anyone has time to kill you can fallow the OTA’s somewhat through these guys on twitter.


    They are doing a play by play sort of.
