    To continue a conversation on the last post.

    IMO the replacement refs are doing a good job. They are all rookies and will make mistakes but overall they are doing very well. Yes there have been some mistakes but it hasn’t IMHO changed the output of what the game would have been anyway.

  2. Jon Says:

    yea and it seems like someone is paying the commentators of the games to come down on the refs hard

  3. Texas_Dolfan Says:

    This coming weekend the “Wildcat” will be back in Miami. But with the Jets thank God!!! I hope they run that a lot. Because a huge glaring weakness Miami has is in the secondary and the Jets have a decent WR core. If Miami can stop the air attack then we will come out on top.

  4. Texas_Dolfan Says:

    I agree Jon and they should just continue doing the job their doing as best they can. As for me I appreciate the job they are doing. They are in a really tough spot and I can’t even imagine the pressure.

  5. Jon Says:

    Jets will keep forcing the issue with Sanchez…….which should be good for us

  6. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    I’m going to wimp out and NOT predict the outcome for this game. I fully expect us to split w/ NYJ for the season, but I just don’t know how that will play out.
    And I find myself rooting too much for my predictions to come true, and I’d rather not do that.
    I’ll just wish the Fins luck, and hope for the best.
    ____________
    The match up really isn’t that bad on paper. Their strength is the run, and our strength is the run D.
    They play tough D, and our WR corp will be tested and smothered, so it will probably be up to Bush again to make a play from nowhere, or Tannehill to get a few yards with his legs to open things up.

    Sanchez isn’t a consistent player, so we may be able to luck into a few gaffes.

    Tough call. Overall I think the Jets are better stacked, but at least it’s home.

    Not going to call it. Just root for the Fins, and cheer.

  7. Jon Says:

    yea JS I think it could be a close one

  8. Jon Says:

    RIP Steve Sabol

  9. Jon Says:

    I fully and COMPLETELY 100% back Ireland up on this story. He described exactly how the “fan” was acting.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/09/18/ireland-expresses-regret-for-verbal-altercation-with-fan/

  10. Jon Says:

    What do you predict will be our biggest struggle against the Jets? On either side of the ball?

  11. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    The Ireland story is overblown. The fan even acknowledges he’d expect Ireland to react that way. All of us Ireland critics have said far worse behind his back, so I have no problem with the fan, and I don’t really care that Ireland cussed..

    And if I’m Ireland, I’m be ruffled too. However, the fan is dead on correct. HE’D react that way too, however HE isn’t a million dollar GM of a multi-million dollar franchise.

    Ireland apologized, said he was caught off-guard by the comment. Really? Negative comments are rare? In your business, some fan’s negative comment (wasn’t even profanity laced, or violent) is enough to flip you out? Sorry, but JI just isn’t the right guy for his job. I don’t put a lot of stock in this encounter, but it absolutely fits with everything else I’ve ever seen with him. Just another piece of straw.

  12. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Biggest struggle against the Jets?
    Here’s how I see it. The Jet DC will focus on stopping Bush, and the short completions and make Tannehill beat him through the air. If our WRs and TEs can beat Revis and the other sawggering DBs, then we have a real shot.

    I think our D-Line will do well against their run game, and I think Sanchez will be hit and miss against our D. Very similar to Palmer’s day.

    Tannehill needs to take advantage of the loaded box, and probably a lot of 1-on-1 coverage. Hartline beat his 1-on-1 last week. This week??? And I’m sure they’ll send some serious pressure to test RT’s courage too.

  13. professor lou Says:

    The Jets usually bring a lot of pressure so I would expect that Sherman is going to do a few things to slow them down and keep them guessing. One of the things I expect to see unvieled this week is some plays where Tannehill rolls to his right and his left to get away from pressue.
    I also expect Philbin to have Tannehill fully versed on the Jet’s blitzing packages so he could recognize them, adjust accordingly and take advantage of it with the offense.
    Also, if Bush and Miller could get off to a good start in the running game it’s going to be that much more difficult for the Jet’s to try and blitz Tannehill or risk one of them taking it the distance
    I think the biggest struggle is going to be getting the ball to receivers especially if Revis plays this week. He didn’t play against the Steelers and Pittsburgh took advantage of it. However, expect the receiver he covers in this game to be shut down. That means the other receiver plus the tight end is going to need to step it up and it also means we’ll probably see Bush in the passing game this week.
    I believe Miami can run on the Jets. If they get the running game established early enough it could be a long day for New York.
    Of course, anything can happen.

  15. Phins78 Says:

    JS maybe I read your post wrong but did you insinuate Ireland ‘flipped out’?

    If so I have to disagree. He didn’t even raise his voice. He called the guy an a@#hole while walking away.

    JS In LA means you’re from California? I notice a lot of Californians are really sensitive about words! Hahaha I called some guy from California a weirdo on a blog once. He said something goofy and I was kidding back with him, no biggy. Just , ya weirdo ;),,,and he just about lost his s*&t. Couldn’t believe I called him a “weirdo” and vowed never to talk to me again.

    I was in shock, the two of us had some great conversations and it was over because of a word that is used almost as a term of endearment if used in the right context.

    So is that what this is Jeff? lol,,,, Someone mutters the word a%$hole and in California that’s considered flipping out? By the way Jeff, I’m totally smiling and laughing right now. This is not meant as some sort of attack I’m just honestly curious! 😉

    And if you’re not in or from California,,,,,,,,,,, damnit.

  16. Phins78 Says:

    The one thing Dolphins players have noticed about rookie QB Ryan Tannehill is his composure, which makes him
    very hard to rattle. They talk about it constantly.

    “So far” he hasn’t given them that deer in the headlight look after different series or errors on his part.
    ———————————————————————————–
    I read this and had to comment for Odinseye. I know you guys are sick of reading our stuff about Omar so just ignore the rest here.

    Odinseye, that was an Omar tweet. Notice the quoted words?
    So far? Omar is hoping beyond hope this kid fails and I don’t get it. He loved Henne, White, Garrard, and seemingly every qb before that. But for some reason he just loves to be on Ryans azz 24/7 and I really wish I knew why!

    How many rookie qbs have their entire offense tell everyone that will listen that their composure is outstanding? Not something you hear a lot. But every day there is a different player saying those exact words.

    And how many times does someone with composure all of the sudden develop a deer in the headlights look? It doesn’t seem likely. I’m not saying Ryan is the answer, don’t know yet, jury is still out. But what I can say is he has great leadership qualities and confidence that leads to that great composure. That I can say with 100% certainty. Omar needs to stop hoping he fails, it’s getting bad and he looks like a bitter jilted ex girlfriend.

  17. ALOCO Says:

    PHINS 78..AGREE WITH YOU.IRELAND DIDN’T OVER REACT B/C HE KNOWS WHAT FANS THINK OF HIM ……….IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COMPOSURE///////

  18. Jon Says:

    PFT continues the hate. They announced every other player winning awards last week except for Reggie Bush.

    All they like to post about Miami is the negative

  19. Texas_Dolfan Says:

    Phins, “ya weirdo” 😉

    I think sometimes when the player they are wanting to fail wasn’t their choice they want to be right more than want the Dolphins to be right on their choice to take RT at 8.

    I stopped liking Omar after he cried last year and wrote about it. He was upset over the outcry of the fans after the 2011 draft.

    Plus O.K. is an awful writer and his opinions of players suck! I don’t agree with JS (Jeff) very much at all on this blog and what he writes but he writes better than O.K.

  20. 72finfan Says:

    Loved Hartline’s ‘Tim Kashardian’ comment!

    C’mon Dolphins, let’s make some noise in the division!

    Thump those damn Jets!

  21. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Phins78,
    C’moooon man.

    I’m from a lot of places, but Florida would be the closest to home-state. I live in the LA area, but would never claim to be from there. People here are weird. I’d leave if Icould.

    And if you read my post closely, I refer to the “flipping out” as a kind of mockery of his apparently off-guardedness when it comes to fans having a negative opinion of him. He admits he was taken off-guard, and was reacting from surprise to some degree. THAT’S where I laugh (mirthlessly) at this guy.

    Lessee, he is roaming about amongst NFL fans in an unscripted and unfiltered setting. And he expects all smiles and pleasantries from them as he shakes hands. Has he ever HEARD NFL fans before? The Pope would get barked at by these folks. And to boot, his team was so bad last year that they fired coaches, and much of the media blame centered on him (right or wrong – he is the focus). Soooo … he’s NOT expecting any negative comments? And one surfaces, and not even the typical obscenity laced type, and he’s shocked?

    Laughable. This is the GM of one of the biggest franchises in NFL history. And he’s taken back by a fan comment that was not even PG in rating. Apparently he never saw those picketers near his office earlier, or thought those fingers meant “#1”.

    He’s a clueless putz, guys. Sorry. He’s excellent at finding bargains in the UFA market – totally give him that, but that’s about it.

    I watched every minute of Hard Knocks and was constantly amazed at his classlessness. I have zero faith in the guy. A fan’s confrontation doesn’t matter one way or the other. But it totally fits who he is. Clueless, and classless, and inept.
    ****
    BTW, players have to deal with these fan schmucks all the time, and block them out.
    Coaches deal with far worse every day, in and out of the media, and from the stands during games. Tune them out.
    Officials hear the worst vile garbage every game. Ice water.
    Cheerleaders probably hear some pretty creepy stuff from the fans (no proof, but I’d guess), yet they smile on.
    So Ireland wasn’t prepared for a fan comment? Not news, just par.

  22. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    texas,
    What!!!? You don’t agree with me?! Why you…..
    A$$hole.

    😛

  23. Texas_Dolfan Says:

    LOL JS – I can agree with that.

  24. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Phins78,
    side comment:
    Thoughts on sensitive L.Angeleans – yep.
    Totally hateful movie, but had some great quotes from ‘Iron Lady”. Margaret Thatcher says to her Dr.:
    “People don’t think anymore. They feel. ‘How are you feeling? No, I don’t feel comfortable. I’m sorry, we as a group we’re feeling….’ One of the great problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas.”

    THAT is Califonia, and LA to a Tee.

  25. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    FYI, Omar is clinging to his support of Naanee like a battered women keeps blindly supporting her husband.

    BUT, he’s off his sopabox, and he’s acknowledging that Naanee isn’t very good right now, but we shouldn’t be on him so hard. Geeeez. C’moooon man. You’re supposed to be a sportswriter, not a player’s “boy”.
    I’m not attacking the guy, but I do noticed that’s he’s invisible when it comes to passing. I’ll give Naanee the same praise I gave Hartline if he can step up his game. I have no interest in burying anyone if they step up. Butcha gotta step up.

  26. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    72finfan,
    I’m an unashamed Tebow fan, but I’m also a Gator alum so I have more reason than most.
    But I don’t understand the craziness over him.
    For my part, I like him as a person and a football player. He’s a positive role model in every fashion (hard to do in pro-sports), and I love his enthusiasm for the game, and his uncanniness of making plays when needed, and overall unselfishness (what other QB do you know that would glady go out in punt coverage to block). He’s a leader of men, and a swell guy. And I root for him, except when he plays the Fins.

    But it ends there. Why the enfatuation? I really don’t know. I have a notion that the die-hardedness of his adoring fans are pushed to extremes with every media douche that seem to have the obsession with burying him. Critiques are fine, but there’s a concerted effort to define him as a bust with less than a season even taking game-day snaps. It’s a circus on both ends. One I don’t understand either way.

  27. Jon Says:

    was there an Aloco siting?

  28. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Revis calling this game a “Must Win”. Juuuuuust swell.
    I have a feeling that means “..at all costs”, and I don’t trust those lunatics to play fair, especially with replacements refs.

    Thank goodness we have Incognito to dish out a little playback now and then, but I hope other guys have our QB/RB/WR’s backs.

    Hope no one “trips” out.

  29. Texas_Dolfan Says:

    JS, Hey, I agree, Naanee has been naataa so far this season and I am all for Mathews getting some time in his place.

  30. odinseye Says:

    I forgot to mention it, but nice Blog Title Jon.

    Urging people to vote for Dolphins!

    Apparently it paid off!

    Good Stuff.

  31. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    texas,
    Matthews deserves some reps, sure, why not. I don’t think we have a magical Victor Cruz on our roster, but if Naanee is the Invisible Man next game, there’s little point in banging our head agianst the wall waiting for him to step up. Give somebody else a chance and move forward.

  32. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    BTW, guys -off topic – sort of……
    I’ve been compiling a big list of draft prospects. I’m starting with receivers, I’ll do DE’s next, and OLBs etc. God knows why i’m doing this, I think there are less than you can count on one hand amount of people in this world who care about who I think is good draft picks, but….

    I do’d it anyways.

    Let me know if anyone wants to see this.
    It’s kind of a long list, and it’s fluid since there’s a long way to go in the season and prospects will be added, changed, or improve/lower their stock.
    In a perfect world I’d put it in it’s own section somewhere, continually update it, and get folks to comment on their own opinions and observations. I certainly get a very limited look at most of them, and would love analysis from folks who see particular players more often.

    Seems like a huge waste, or self-important monologue of opinions – which it probably is – but nevertheless, I can’t help myself.

    Again, let me know if anyone really wants to see this.
    Otherwise, I stay in my dark corner, chanting “Precious”.

  33. ozkar_ Says:

    So how many times did you-all vote for the nominees?
    I voted several times for T-hill. I’ve never been a Reggie fan.

  34. odinseye Says:

    JS,

    I’m no psychologist, but I find your actions………shall we say…………Curious?

    Why would one be contemplating next years draft on the eve of a big rivalry?

    Then to take up a level, we can focus on ones **INTENT** as opposed to ones actions.

    I want you too take a DEEP breath, RELAX and tell me, did you have a Happy Childhood?

    -Odin- 😉

  35. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Because my dear Odin, I am obsessed about draft picks, and find ours currently contemptable.

    I am also on this kick RATHER than searching everyone else’s bargain bin, or waiver wire, or begging for FAs to come. Philbin says he wants to build through the draft, and we know where are weaknesses currently are, i.e. … I’m whining about the draft.

    Nuf 4 u, sir?

    And my childhood was fine. Coal mines are great places to grow up.

  36. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Curious, how many days, hours constitute an “eve”?
    Today I’m on the eve of my Gators playing. Tomorrow will be the “eve” of the Dolphins.

    poke, poke 😉

  37. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Tiny piss-offs of the day:

    ESPN.

    First, on the standings, they have us listed last. NYJ as first. Granted there’s no way to adequately place all 4 tied teams in a 1st to last list, but there are more sensible ways.
    I’d understand if we were last because they placed everyone based on last year’s record. Nope. NE is 2nd.
    I’d understand if they did it alphabetically. Buffalo would be 1st, then, but Nope .. NYJ.
    Points for?.. nope.
    Against.. nope.

    No sense other than we’re last for no darned reason. Conspiracy! 😉

    Second, their Total QBR ratings. Weird. No one understands it. But Tannehill is listed 2nd to last (32nd). He’s in good company with A. Rogers 26th, and Brady 23rd. Top 5 elite QBs on the list? in order: Ryan, Griffin, Luck, Smith, Sanchez. Yeeeeah, right. Perhaps ESPN might want to tweak those formulas.

  38. professor lou Says:

    JS, I know that stuff gets to you but I wouldn’t let it bother you. If they beat the Jets on Sunday and they continue to win we can all tell them that they can’t jump on the bandwagon at that time. If they have no respect for this team I don’t want to here them talking it up if they are winning games and impressing. I don’t care what they say about the Dolphins. If Miami is 9-1 after 10 games and they still don’t give them any respect I don’t care. I just don’t want them talking like they “knew all along” because the “Dolphins had some talent with Tannehill and Bush, Long, Pouncey, Bess and Hartline and had one of the stingiest defenses against the run.” These guys talk out of both sides of their face so I don’t place much emphasis on what they say. This team has some solid foundation right now. It’s a matter of getting some guys some experience and adding a few pieces in the right areas and they will be able to compete w/anybody.
    Also, as far as receiver is concerned maybe Armstrong could step in and be a threat if he wasn’t a one year wonder.

  39. Texas_Dolfan Says:

    JS, I am not sure if you remember but Henne was in the top ten in that same ESPN rank ranking last year before he got hurt. I thought it was funny because he was in the 20’s in every QB statistic category except running the ball.

  40. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Lou,
    My piss offs are a bit tongue in cheek. Honestly I don’t believe in conspiracy at ESPN.. just thought is was funny in a bad way. No sweat. This week will separate us a bit one way or another.
    The overall “solid foundation” is very debatable to me, but the battery might be solid at least. Coach, line(s), QB. QB is still in process, so I’ll wait to judge later.
    _________
    Texas,
    The ESPN QBR is a joke to everyone but them. I don’t care where Tannehill or Henne was/is, but it did strike me as strange that their idea of perfection starts with those 5, and Brady and Rogers are floating at the bottom, with Tannehill barely registering a score. Just seems stupid and insulting. No biggie. I did say “tiny” piss-offs.

  41. odinseye Says:

    Wow!

    That 3 oclock live blog was one of the most pathetic things I’ve ever seen here. And I don’t have to tell you guys, you all know we’ve seen some pretty pathetic things here.

    The most disturbing thing by Far is Armando and the obviously false statements he made. Once again he tried that weak stuff about, “Define A Troll”. He’s done that before and any of you regulars that are still here no this. It’s his own special little way of letting you guys know that his “Good Thang(on the side)” his “Special Friend” that racks up blog hits is going to continue to have free reign.

    He was posting under Danny Whurfel today-BTW. Check out his posts during the live blog. Of all the things he was here for, racking up hits was the most obvious. Just for your info, it’s none other than Pricemaster, Lincoln Continental, and many others as of late. ALoco, oscar and all the way back to the Cuban Menace. Before of course he busted himself so many times forgeting his sign in and “talking to self” to the point of no one even buying it any longer.

    But thats not even the issue. The **MAIN GIVE AWAY**. The PROOF that Armando and his “Good Thang” on the side will put quanity over quality EVERYTIME when it comes to getting Blog Bragging Rights over Cote, Jackson and Beasley.

    Side Note: Ole “Good Thang” ain’t going to deliver you bragging rights over Darlington at least-ROTFLMAO!

    You guys missed it. Just like “Good Thang” keeps busting himself here, Armando did today – BIG TIME!

    He comes on here and insults all of you guys and your intelligence, buy AGAIN insinuating that there Aren’t Trolls here and that it’s not a Problem. OK, and a “Yeah Right” Armando. Define a Troll My A ss.

    Why didn’t anyone ask Armando to explain this cute little conundrum: Armando comes on here and tells you YG/DB never uses any aliases. Ok, sure Bud!

    But then why in the next breath was Armando and Danny “Good Thang” Whurfel telling us that Armando is way to busy to see all the posts? If he’s way too bust to see all the posts, then how can he, with any confidence or good conscience tell us that YG/DB never uses alases.

    Which is it Armando? You can’t have it both ways. It’s obvious that you can’t check all the posts. OK, but why then would you state unequivocally that you can vouch for YG? You guys can believe what you want. It’s obvious to me that he was just attempting to protect “Good Thang” and another of his aliases.

    He’s to busy to check enough posts to realize we have a Rodent Troll Problem. But he’s not to busy to come on the live blog, Off The Cuff No Less and state as a fact that YG/DB doesn’t use aliases?

    Come on you guys! You can’t see right through that? You can’t see the problems this raises and the obvious implications?

    I think you need to ask Armando for a slightly better explanation than the one offered at 2:52 PM, Sept. 21.

    Posted by: Coalition To Get Coalition Out Of The Closet | September 22, 2012 at 02:48 AM

    When Armando was asked about the Troll problem during the Live Blog today, he did the exact same thing he’s done in the past. He asked the Blogger(Craig M)to define Troll.

    He went on to explain whats “In Bounds and Out of Bounds” and insinuated Craig M(and other long time faithful bloggers)were whinning about basically nothing. And that **THEY** should send **HIM** an E-Mail to report when a Troll(or just another ordinary blogger, according to Armando)crosses the line.

    He also explained that he’s way to busy to follow what all goes on here. He said He and the Herald were “Doing their best” in keeping it clean. But that it was IMPOSSIBLE to police the place.

    Thats all fine and dandy. Except, how then, COULD HE POSSIBLY come to the defense today of a Blogger being accused of using multiple sign in names/impostoring people/and just generally screwing the place up with bullshyt posts aimed solely at antagonizing and inciting strife?

    Armando was simply WAY to quick to defend said blogger, considering he simultaneously was claiming that it was impossible to monitor said blogger.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm…………seems to me like “SOMEBODY” just got caught trying to have his cake and eat it too. It’s pretty obvious to me that these two statements are “Mutually Exclusive”. You just can’t have it both ways on this particular issue.

    As Armando likes to say, let that sink in for a minute. Then……….YOU be the JUDGE!

  42. odinseye Says:

    Sorry Jon and the rest of you guys. My honest and sincere apology.

    This stuff just blew me away and I wanted to share.

    Please, if I’m missing something or made a major mistake with this, please explain it to me.

    Armando allowing the bull to go on is one thing. But to actually reprimand the good posters and insult their intelligence by insinuating there are no Trolls or no Troll problems-lol?

    Pssssssssssssssssfpt! He crossed a line with me and I won’t hold back. I’m going to let him know.

    Again, my apology. Just thought you guys might want to know that Armando and the ridiculousness with his “Good Thang” have reached an all time new LOW!

    (PS: If this doesn’t get Armando to finally ban me, I don’t know what will. Seriously, I would be surprised 😉 )

  43. professor lou Says:

    There are some players that will really need to step it up this week. Charles Clay is one that comes to mind. He’s been a big dissappointment so far this year and this week is a big game. He will need to show up for Miami to have a chance to win this game. Anthony Fasano is another guy that will need to have some big catches this week.
    Reggie Bush will need to have a solid performance and the o-line is going to need to block well for him again this week. If Lamar Miller can add to the ground game like he did last week that will go a long way to helping them win this one.
    It’s time for Daniel Thomas to put up or shut up. Injured again with a concussion and showing little thru the first two games he needs to show he was worth that 2nd round pick or let Miller get the reps.
    They should use a healthy dose of Javorskie Lane this week especially as a lead blocker. He could help soften things up on the Jets defensive line. Even if they don’t run the ball to his side they could use him just to wear down guys on defense.
    Miami’s secondary is going to be the deciding factor in this game. The defensive line should be able to slow the Jets running game but it will be the play of the db’s; jones in run support and coverage, clemons needs to play mistake free and the cb’s cannot get burned for any big plays.

  49. 72finfan Says:

    Disappointing game. We had too many chances to take control and, plain and simple, didn’t.

    Areas of concern:
    1) The secondary is a sieve. Rashad Marshall was a liability. This will be a season-long achilles (but we saw this coming with the Bell/Davis moves).

    2) Questionable endgame coaching calls/game managment. Many areas here, but one was the lack of attacking the spots vacated with the Revis/Cromartie injuries. A team loses it’s top two dbs, and we couldn’t stick a pass for the life of us.

    3) Offensive play-calling. I was seriously haveing flashbacks of Dan Henning during the second half. We didn’t play within ourselves and take what they gave us. Over-used cliche’s, I know, but watch the game and you’ll see. I felt we tried to force plays when the opening wasn’t there, especially those last two drives. We could have been 20-yards closer for that last Carpenter FG, and maybe be celebrating today instead of wondering what could have been.

    3) Reggie’s knee. Hope it’s just a bruise!

    On the replacement refs, I think Cris Collinsworth said it best last night. (Words to the effect) “There is no question that these guys are doing the best they can. The problem is, they aren’t qualified to do it.”
