Player Profile at Mustachio Cuts: Jordan Phillips


Entrare! Welcome back to Mustachio Cuts a place to talk Miami Dolphins football and facial hair!

jordanPhillips5You won’t believe the appuntamento I have today…Jordan Phillips, the Dolphins segundo pick!  Applausi!  (Mustachio claps)

I can’t wait for the big elefante to get here.  I made some nice desserts for him.  Oh, you no know? Mustachio a capocuoco too!

Here he is!   Come in Mr. Jordan Phillips.


Come in!  Si Accomodi at Mustachios!  I’m so glad to have you here.  (he dusts off his chair)  What a good pick you were.  Magnifico Pick!

Some people say they no come the pick.  They volere a linebacker or a defensive back.  Or even Offensive line.  But not Mustachio…Mustachio knows that with Suh up front our defense can be il migliore if we get Suh some amici to play with.  And the Dolphins took you!  Affanculo!

Buona Fortuna for the Dolphins you were there for us in the 2nd round.


I made some treats for you.  I hope you like cannoli.  What do I parlare?  Everyone likes cannoli.  Look at this whole plate of cannolis!

I made 20 to represent all your solo tackles at Oklahoma.  What a run stuffer you were at Oklahoma! At 6’5, 329 pounds, what else should we have expected.


Have a cannoli.  But just uno.  Mustachio has lots of other customers.  And they all come with empty stomaco!

If you take more than one, I will slap you hands away like you did to all the offensive lineman who tried to hold you!

Okay okay…you can have two…but only because you came back from a back injury in 2013 to start every game in 2014.  Impressionante!

But just two okay…I don’t want you to have trouble with your backflips on Musatchio’s account!


Hey Jordan Phillips?  What happened to all the cannolis???  Affanculo!  When I wasn’t looking?

Hopefully you can still backflip?  You are a freak athlete, no?  Very rapido and agile!  Rob Rang compared you to pro bowler Dontari Poe before the draft and called your athleticism and size eye popping!


Eye popping like this plate of Zeppoles!  Mmmmmm!

Deliziosio no?

Okay this time Mustachio means it.  Just one!

Mustachio heard that you were tearing it up in rookie camp.  Impressing everyone early.

That is good…maybe you can make a push to start and take the starting job from Earl Mitchell.  Mitchell played well last year, but the   cielo is the limit for Jordan Phillips.  Next to Suh, you can be a force!


You will have to keep up your impressive performances in OTAs, training camp and preseason.

The libro on Jordan Phillips is that he is pigro…(whispering) and pigro is bad…

But what do you expect people to say when the guy is big, athletic and strong and did not dominate at the college level?


Hey Jordan Phillips…not the zeppoles too!

What an appetite for pasticceria you have?

Too bad you don’t play against italian desserts…

hmmm…that give’s Mustachio an idea…


Now you can have all the cannoli you want!!!

    What a game yesterday between Auburn and Florida.I can’t remember a baseball or softball game so well played by both teams especially pitching and defense. Now only 2 teams are left for the championship in a best of 3. Gators and Wolverines advanced to the best-of-three championship series that begins Monday (ESPN2, 8 p.m. ET).
    I wonder who Mr.Ross is rooting for considering he graduated from Michigan and flunked out of University of Florida.

  2. Brian in NY says:

    Nice Piggy! Nothing like zeppoles- We used to get them all the time at carnivals and street fairs. I can’t blame him for eating the whole plate!

  3. naplesfan2010 says:

    That’s hilarious Pig.
    He better be better than Johnson and Johnson, or it’s a wasted pick. Odrick was Big Ten DPotY and a 1st rounder, but we expect more production out of Phillips? Tennessee took Starks in the 3rd, but he made the pro bowl a couple times. Here’s hoping Phillips does too. Soliai was a 4th rounder, if you want to compare behemoths. I do think Phillips is more agile than Big Paul.

      Way to go Officer Ellison! Good man.
      What a shame for Kazzie and his family to lose his parents at once like that.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Horrible tragedy turned wonderful in the best way it could. Awesome job Officer Ellison.

    And we biotch about how much guys on our team get per tackle, sack or reception……..and where’s Bookman?
    In the final season of Seinfeld:

    Jerry made $13,000 for each line delivered on screen.
    Jason Alexander (George) $11,000 for each line.
    Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine) $13,000.
    Michael Richards (Kramer) $15,000 per line.

    Where is Bookman on this list????

    Jerry and his joy boys were making all the money. He certainly made enough to pay a lousy library fine.

  5. son of a son of a shula says:

    Good job Piggs, next time can Mustachio have healthy snacks out when the behemoths show up instead of baked goods. A plate of carrots and celery instead of a whole tiramisu would be good.

  6. Mike E. says:

    Funny stuff Piggy! Mi piace la scelta fino a quando la linea offensiva non aspira. Love Canoli Brady!

  7. Mike E. says:


    Nice story. Officer Ellison is a quality man for sure. Very nice thing he did.

  8. son of a son of a shula says:

    Darren Rizzi on ST:

    “It’s funny, when you get a chance to sit back and really evaluate, we did a real good job this past season when the other team had the ball,” Rizzi said. “For example, when they were kicking to us, when they were punting to us or they were kicking field goals, we were in the tops in the league in all those categories — field goal block percentage, kickoff return average, we obviously blocked a bunch of punts and had some big plays there.

    “We need to get better this season and improve when we have the ball. Our field goal percentage needs to improve. Brandon Fields has been a tremendous player in this league for a lot of years, but he had a little bit of a down year this year for him. He still finished 11th in the league, but for him that was a down year. And then the same thing with our kickoff coverage. Those are the three areas that we need to improve on.”
    Fields had already got right and was booming the ball at the end of the year and we have to assume he’ll be fine and his one slump was a fluke or just that his one slump.
    It’s Sturgis that really needs to improve, he has to get his kicks deeper (and that was supposed to be his calling card) and he of course has to become a more accurate and clutch FG kicker.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I saw that interview with Rizzi. He believes Sturgis has a ton of talent and can take his game to another level. He noted that Sturgis was hurt during TC and the PS and didn’t really kick until the opener. He said Sturgis works his ass off and is in the building working on something all the time.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        Thanks Tim, that’s encouraging news on Sturgis. I read the interview instead of watching it.

  9. getterdone says:

    Nashville Tennessean
    When asked about Justin Hunter, coach Ken Whisenhunt said, “At some point, you either get it or you won’t be in this league anymore. That’s the natural order of the NFL.”
    The Titans continue to try to wake Hunter up from his career-long doldrums. Last year, they outfitted him in a practice jersey that said JAG (just a guy) on the back — even though he’s 6-foot-4 with 4.4 speed and serious leaping ability. That didn’t work and we doubt Whiz’s comments will light a fire under Hunter either.

  10. getterdone says:

    I hope Sturgis comes around…he’ll likely be needed to hit a winning kick at some point in a big game after Tanny brings us back down the field.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      in the AFC divisional round to send us to the AFC Championship against … the Colts??

    • Tim Knight says:

      I noticed we have competition at kicker and punter this year where last year we didn’t. I think this year we don’t want anyone with the exception of a select few for obvious reasons, feeling comfortable.

  11. Tim Knight says:

    GD, Piggy has a Jordan jersey too. I think he’s going to cover Jordan with Fuckin Oink! LOL

  12. The Flying Pig says:

    Here is a pic if my Jordan jersey

  13. getterdone says:

    I bought a Tanny jersey…guess I done good….he he he

  14. getterdone says:

    Jordan Phillips is a beast, only 22, and still learning. Hope Terrell Williams, Mitchell, & Suh will bring out the best in him.
    Lets just hope his back problems are behind him…the hot Fla weather should be help in that regard. Maybe Wake will get him into some yoga.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Phillips is a pro now and realized that when he signed a 4 year $4+M deal. He’ll realize it more when he’s around grown men who take this seriously and it’s not college anymore. He seems like an intelligent guy, not one of those excuse makers who’s clueless. I’m not worried about him at the moment.

  15. Tim Knight says:

    What is with all these Asian nations building artificial islands?

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      I know right?
      I did a search on Amazon and like 7 different Island Warehouses came up. You can get cold or hot islands, desert or jungle, uninhabited or one with people on it already waiting to serve you.
      I am waiting to order when the new models come out. Supposedly you can order the 2015s with volcanoes and orangutangs, two of my favorite options.

  16. The Flying Pig says:

    I have a Tanny jersey too
    Its just the old color and old logo

  17. naplesfan2010 says:

    About you guys who still have Jake Long and Brandon Marshall jerseys, I think we are getting much closer now to a stable roster, at least as much as it can be in today’s NFL.

  18. naplesfan2010 says:

    Foil Hat Idea #129:
    Don’t you think that free agency was actually started to drive gear sales by continually moving players to different teams? It’s just like high-waisted vs. hip-hugger short shorts for women … all part of the fashion cycle to keep consumers chasing the latest thing.

    • getterdone says:

      It’s certainly part of the larger equation. Lets face it, the NFL is a marketing business in perpetual branding mode.

  19. getterdone says:

    Tim, China is dredging up the ocean floor to build islands for military purposes. They want to control the hotly contested South China Seas, as well as force the weakened US under BO to play by their rules in the vastly used shipping lanes as well.
    The Chinese have been fast tracking their military might recently by committing to building warships, aircraft carriers, etc.
    They know conflict/war is coming with the world in a financial crisis. It’s inevitable.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Now Vietnam is building them.

      I know pacifist Japan has recently kicked it up with their defense military.

      • getterdone says:

        Yesss, and also has a lot to do with this friggin secret TPP deal that BO has been shilling for international corporations so hard for.
        Our sovereignty is shit!

  20. D says:

    You guys never listen to me when i tell you about my Florida boys…I think Jenkins proved himself last year. Gillislee i am hoping gets a chance to because i know how good he is at RB, very well rounded back. Sturgis i was pretty shocked has started out slowly. He was amazing in college, and i think he is just settling in and getting his confidence. Only way i can explain how a kicker in College has not looked as sharp in pro’s. Kicking game pretty much the same as it is in college, so usually translates almost perfectly. He has a very strong leg so would be awesome if he got it all together.

  21. Tim Knight says:

    GD, not to get into long winded political discussions, but with technology advancing at crazy rates and the information age basically real time, our country and the world as we knew it stands no chance of staying the way it was. You can’t be isolated and competitive on the world scale.

    Not saying pols do everything that’s best for America, just that the reason many feel these are troubling times is because we’ve never seen technology like this. When scientists say Artificial Intelligence could be the biggest threat to mankind, you know we’re actually living science fiction now.

  22. Excellent job Piggy!!! I once had a dog named Cannoli….lol.

  23. D says:

    Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet 10s10 seconds ago

    My understanding on the imminent Cam Newton 5-year, more than $100M extension is full guarantees are very real. We wait for firm numbers
    thank God we signed Tanny first. Thats ridiculous numbers for Cam.

  24. The Flying Pig says:

    Jenkins is solid
    Sturgis has sucked so far – he needs to get consistent
    I don;t know about Gillesee, he hasn’t even seen the field

    right now Mille, Ajayi and Williams are manning the RB position
    but I think we keep 4 on the roster right?

  25. getterdone says:

    Tim, agreed…I’m not trying to go into political bashing…in fact it’s both parties on this TPP fiasco.
    Also agreed on the rapidly expanding technology. Man will be his own undoing once again as he tries to become God. A Google CEO thinks man can become immortal by 2050….LMAO! Not gonna happen.

  26. getterdone says:

    Sturgis has the physical ability…right now, it lies in his head as to how good he can be.
    Kicking is somewhat like a golf swing. If you can conquer the mental aspect of the game with some consistency, then you’ll do well.

  27. I hate both political parties; nothing will ever get done because when a Repulbican is in the White House and the Dems control Congress everything the prez tries to do is blocked; we have a Dem prez with a Republican Congress and same. I wish we could just abolish the party system. That is all.

  28. D says:

        Anyone who dont think their reporting is geared to rile up a fan base should look no further than the fact they point out shit they know there are concerns over. God forbid he has to miss one for any fucking reason, they will be on it like Omar on shit.

    • stangerx says:

      Any reports that Tanny is there? How about Denney?

  29. getterdone says:

    The majority of all parties, especially the 2 big parties with the most influence are so deep in corruption and defilement of their oath of office.
    All of congress, the executive branch, and most all federal agencies are in one giant clusterfuck money grab. Sadly it will get even worse before it gets better.

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s really bad at the local and state levels too. The problem is a lot of douche bags gravitate to politics.

      • getterdone says:


      • stangerx says:

        Depends on what state your in. There are a lot of solid legislators out there. And the party divides often aren’t nearly as set in stone. Lot of places they actually work together for what they think makes sense.

    • I have voted for both Republicans & Democrats and have been affiliated with both parties and campaigned for our last two Presidents because I was sure they could make positive changes for our country. But because Congress has been ruled by the opposition it’s a total joke. I’m an Independent now and unless someone I feel is worthy I just may not vote. Not gonna vote for Mr.(s) Clinton and there are zero Republicans I would vote for,

  30. getterdone says:

    Man I hope this guy stays concussion free for about 3-4yrs. He can be a star along with Tanny if he can stay on the field.

    Go #84!

    Huge props to the Pig for Cannoli Tom.
    That’s one tasty snack.

  32. getterdone says:

    James Walker ✔ @JamesWalkerNFL
    I don’t see CB Will Davis or DB Don Jones out here today for #Dolphins OTAs. Both have injuries.

    • D says:

      Id like to see Jones step it up this year. He is a guy who really goes all out on ST’s but i have a feeling if he isnt at least pushing the starters he will not make the cut this year.

  33. getterdone says:

    Omar Kelly ✔ @OmarKelly
    Christion Jones, LaMichael James, Kenny Stills and Damarr Aultman are handling punt returns.

  34. Florida – especially South Florida, is filled with corrupt politicians….which surprises absolutely no one.


  36. stangerx says:

    “Newton was very close on Monday morning to an agreement on a five-year contract extension that was reportedly worth more than $100 million, according to multiple reports including the Charlotte Observer. ”

    That would be for one year and more dollars than Tanny.

  37. Tim Knight says:

    D, no doubt these reporters want to find controversy in the big signing of Suh somehow and then make up their own opinions about it as if it’s fact. Really lame stuff. Suh is a 4 time all-pro and pro bowl player. They can all go work one for all I care. LOL

  38. getterdone says:

    Chris Perkins ✔ @chrisperk
    Tannehill, Josh Freeman throwing 25-yd out passes. I’ll say it again, Freeman is strong-armed. Not accurate, strong.

    Omar Kelly ✔ @OmarKelly
    Christion Jones, LaMichael James, Kenny Stills and Damarr Aultman are handling punt returns.
    They should put Gillislee back there too, he was a good returner in college and its a way he can earn a spot. I think the last RB spot may come down to if James/Gillislee impress in ST play. I think though Christion Jones is the best option for us in return game, really good returner.

    • getterdone says:

      I’d hate to see Christian Jones occupy a roster spot if he can’t be counted on in the passing game. I rather we find another returner, and think that we will. He’s PS material…IMO.

  41. Tim Knight says:

    Stanger, no doubt there are some good people in politics, too bad there are as many douche bags to fuck it all up.

  42. Tim Knight says:

    Stanger, are politics at the top level anything like that show Veep?

    • getterdone says:

      Pols at any level are prone to corruption when big money power brokers are allowed to manipulate them with little transparency. Money & power controls the lawmakers for their own gain. Corporate control, instead of a government by the people for the people….lol

    • stangerx says:

      I haven’t watched the show. And I did mostly state stuff. Wasn’t so different than West Wing though. Just take out responses to international attacks and stuff like that. Then take what you see unfold about this or that bill in an episode or two and make it the highlights over say two or three months.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I was asking because every character on the show is an asshole including the VP/Pres. LOL

  43. Tim Knight says:

    It’s much more fun bashing politics than our team. 🙂

  44. getterdone says:

    Speakin of Sturgis…smh!

    Caleb Sturgis is not present for practice today.

  45. getterdone says:

    TBH i think he would make sa good receiver for us as well. He was pretty good even opposite the guy who got all the damn looks in Amari Cooper. WR’s in our offense operate much like a return specalist. Ball quickly in their hands, make moves through traffic and break it for big YAC. I think he actually fits our offense pretty well. Im kinda torn between he and Byrd, but i think he fits us better than Byrd

    • D says:

      Jones has a 14 yar per reception average at Alabama. Not huge yardage totals but a lot of that was that it was all about Amari Cooper and the RB’s there. Very little love to the other receivers.

    Jordan Tripp gets LaMichael James for a loss on a toss sweep. Good play by Tripp.

  49. getterdone says:

    Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
    Two straight good plays for Jamar Taylor. Set the edge on a reverse, then blanketed Stills on an incompletion.

    • D says:

      CB/WR play is a lot more relatable in OTA’s than say trench play, or RB/QB’s. Some Db’s, specifically press DB’s wont have the advantage of using their size/physicality in no contact drills but still its a pretty close representation. Bodes pretty good for Taylor.

    I know there is no star power in that lineup, but if Misi is healthy thats a really solid group, Tripp in for passing down.

    • getterdone says:

      Does sound like a capable group, especially behind Suh & Mitchell/Phillips.

      The guy has been doing this how long and how many times do coaches have to tell him they try different things with guys especially this time of year to see how they respond. It’s like every year is the first time for these reporters.

    All you can ask for at these OTA is for players to show good instincts.
    Everyone’s timing is off at this point and nobody is allowed to use their power so basically the only positions that are even capable of showing anything are the WR/DB/QB.
    DL/OL evaluations are worthless as those are positions that emphasize power.

    Heard Crowder flat out say on my way to the store — “only position you can tell anything about on defense during OTAs is DB.”

    • D says:

      I think thats pretty much true. May get a good look at the DT’s and De’s first step, maybe get to see how the LB’s react in pass coverage.

    • Tim Knight says:

      So wouldn’t that be the case with WRs too, and to a degree, LBs in coverage and TEs?

      • stangerx says:

        My guess is WRs would be the equivalent on offense. Could add in QB too, but a bit of a difference when you have the red jersey on. My guess is you do stuff you wouldn’t otherwise.

      • D says:

        Yeah but he was focusing on defensive players, i included LB’s in coverage as an addition to his list.

    Nah QB’s would be considerably easier in OTA’s. WR’s too since they dont have to worry about getting creamed over the middle when they are catching passes/

    • Tim Knight says:

      You can still get a feel for route running and hands. Doing it after being hit is a different beast, but all these guys have played football before and have been hit so it’s not the first time even if not in the NFL.

    • stangerx says:

      True — and the rules for DBs are the same in OTAs as they are in pads. Only thing you wouldn’t be able to see is if they can deliver the whacks.

    Think the grasshopper Perkins has been waxing sensai Omar’s cars too long……the only one he can possibly talking about is Stills. And how many years did Gibson do it?
    As for the many new faces in the receiving corps — Michael Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson are out with Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker, and Greg Jennings replacing them — Perkins isn’t so sure about the position being upgraded.

    “I’ve seen those dudes do it multiple years in the NFL,” Perkins said of last year’s group. “These guys I’ve seen them have one good year. I don’t know if they’re good players or if they had a good year. So right now I still favor last year’s receivers.”

    6. Speaking of Ryan Tannehill’s health, there was no grand moment of embarrassment for the offensive line — particularly the guards — today. Dallas Thomas was fine. Billy Turner was fine. For Thomas, that was an improvement over last Monday’s open OTA. Rookie Jamil Douglas did take some first-team snaps over Thomas. Veteran Sam Brenner did get a handful of first-team snaps over Turner. Coaches are just mixing and matching at this point.

    Jason Fox was the starting left tackle as Branden Albert continues to rehab his knee. The starting line RT to LT: Jason Fox, Dallas Thomas, Mike Pouncey, Billy Turner, Ja’Wuan James.

        Be the ball carrier on reverses, throw some passes on trick plays, or….I get it, he wants to play some CB after seeing Lippett getting all the attention of 3 INT’s today…lol 😉

    Miami Dolphins DC Kevin Coyle: “I’m as optimistic as I’ve ever been going into a season.”
    Awesome, now stop playing soft zone and so far off the ball. Stop rushing just 2 as well….smh

    • Tim Knight says:

      Our coverage scheme is not the issue, #6 in pass defense even with all the injuries at LB and the secondary last year. We also don’t play exclusively zone just because we play off man. That’s a total fallacy that keeps getting repeated. We also rushed just 2 probably 3-4 times last year, it’s just when it was done that fans have blown that way out of proportion.

      • getterdone says:

        I know all this, but when it was used, it was usually not in the right situations nor at the right time…cost us a win or two.
        I do like some of the 5-2 D tho, when you have the right matchups.

    • stangerx says:

      Must be nice for a DC to think he can stop the btwn the tackle run just with his DTs…….guessing his mind is racing with what else he can do.

  122. Tim Knight says:

    GD, it’s just a pet peeve of mine with the zone and 2 man rush thing. Every game we lost you could go back and find other plays not made left on the field. It’s when it happens late fans use that as a colossal mistake.

    • getterdone says:

      True, but those wtf moments are what sticks in our mind and eats at us all offseason…lol

      • Tim Knight says:

        I get that. But I always go back to Coyle wasn’t trying to lose the game. No coach does something because he thinks to himself, this outta fuck this game up for us, let’s do it. LOL

      • getterdone says:

        Right, but there are times not to get all cutsie either just because it worked in practice or looked good on paper.
        I think all the injuries had him overreaching for ideas to compensate for the personnel losses.

  124. CavalierKong says:

    Flipping Sturgis has glass legs. Has he been healthy at all since we drafted him?

  125. Tim Knight says:

    GD, agreed on your 3:50 post. He’s been aggressive most of the time he’s been here.

    • getterdone says:

      Right, he’s talked about creating more turnovers…he’s got to be thrilled with Lippett today…but lets get most of those turnovers from base defenses by winning matchups and being assignment sound.

  126. Jahndoh30 says:

    I’ve never even mentioned soft zone, but playing coverage with game on the line against the likes of Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers simply does NOT work. The playcall is compounded when your corners are playing off and soft technique. It’s not a man vs zone thing, it’s a corner technique and the record is there for all to see, it’s the technique he coaches and calls most often.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Wasn’t calling you out, I see soft zone mentioned here a lot and it’s not accurate. The coverage scheme is not the issue, it’s execution. Were were #2 in pass defense for 10 games and finished #6 using the same scheme. You look at the what happened in games and guys were there to make plays and didn’t a lot of the time.

      Play calling is the most common and easiest scape goat. But I have to admit play calling at the end of the game in the Super Bowl was very questionable. Then again, the WR on Seattle didn’t execute his route properly and Michael Irvin pointed it out in a feature on NFLN. If he does they score anyway and nobody questions anything.

    • getterdone says:

      Good point…is why I too mentioned playing off the ball/man. I watch the alignments just prior to the snap. Was usually screaming at the tv. Seemed to be content with trying to keep everything underneath…a certain Olivadotti use to do that and it drove me insane….lol

      Ok, before you blast me Tim, I do think Coyle is way ahead of Olivadotti. 😉

  127. Tim Knight says:

    Part of the problem with Olivadotti’s defense was he played the DL off the ball and his LBs 10 yards back. LOL

    That and the defense was lacking talent big time. It wasn’t all his fault but he sucked.

    • getterdone says:

      We now have a likely Top 3 DL. I want to see it used very very aggressively.
      This will help the LB’s & secondary.
      BTW, I think our secondary will be a plus, the FO loaded up lots of nice competition & youth for Coyle’s forte.

  128. getterdone says:

    One thing I’d like to mention on Coyle is that Philbin & he agreed his scheme was too complicated based on what players were saying last season.
    So there’s your players not executing in crunch time.
    I believe Joe & he wants to scale it back some, simplify it more, so the players can read & react quicker, be more decisive.

  129. getterdone says:

    Today’s OTA straight from the horse’s face, err mouth. 😉
    I do like the emphasis on red zone work, need more TD’s there!
    Also he mentioned letting Landry get some outside work in certain matchups.
    9:36 min video….good stuff from Coach Philbin:

  130. Al in MIA says:

    Everyone faces adversity in the NFL but what you do with what you got defines you.
    Coyle’s solution late in the season to a depleted secondary was to call for more secondary guys to be out there (to cloud the routes apparently). It goes without say that you take away LB/DL when you are adding more DB. Miami’s strength on D was in the front 7 not in the back 4 and that’s why I was frustrated with Coyle. When he lost a few LB vs NE earlier in the season, he adjusted by adding more DL. When he lost DB he reduced the amount of guys available to attack the LOS (albeit LB/DL). That’s a reflection of him and his DB coaching background. He simply calculated his risk wrong (that minimizing damage to the secondary comes as a function of time the QB has to throw).

    • Tim Knight says:

      I’m not saying it didn’t work and he didn’t make mistakes, but it doesn’t mean that’s his philosophy.

  131. Tim Knight says:

    I also think because of Dion Fuckface being a #3 pick the coaches had to find ways to get him in the game when back in the day he would have sat until he was ready. Carl Banks was also a #3 pick back in 1984 and played sparingly as a rookie until he was ready. We had to force DF in the lineup because of his draft status and that changed some of schemes we ran. Now we don’t have that issue so we can probably stream line that and go with our best players/formations more often.

  135. Al in MIA says:

    Would be nice if Miami did indeed hit a home run on both McCain & Lippett.

    • D says:

      We carried 6 Cb’s last year. We definitely will be cutting someone thats of good quality unless we keep more this year. Its a good problem to have even if the stingy side of me doesnt wanna let any of them go.

      Zack Bowman
      Will Davis
      Brent Grimes
      Bobby McCain
      Brice McCain
      Sammy Seamster
      Jamar Taylor
      Tony Lippett

      So 6 spots, 8 candidates. Seamster seems easiest to say is one of the trim down guys but who do you choose next? Bowman who has good size and has shown some good stuff early? Either of the McCain bro’s, both of which are pretty good. Taylor and Grimes seem to be locks, Davis then? Thats going to be a hard cut, unless they keep one fo them and count him as S/CB hybrid. Then you got an even harder decision at S where you would have to cut two from this list.

      Louis Delmas
      Shamiel Gary
      Don Jones
      Reshad Jones
      Michael Thomas
      Cedric Thompson
      Walt Aikens

      Gary seems most likely, but whom after that, Jones who does a good job as our gunner? Michael Thomas the versatile guy who was the Patriot game savior? Delmas who is a good mentor and still has some decent play left in him it seems? Hard decisions.

    I always go back to a simple point. Bill Parcells’ 11 QB Commandments and you can really put that on any position and player.
    1. Ignore other opinions – Press or TV, agents or advisors, family or wives, friends or relatives, fans or hangers on – ignore them on matters of football, they don’t know what’s happening here.

    Jennings will be good for not just the WR room but the team. A guy who’s had success and won a championship and has an evil keel view on things.

    Evil Greg Jennings!

    4. I thought Tony Lippett was practice squad material. Right now I wouldn’t rule him out to start. What I saw today was special, not luck.

    After his 3 int day.

    7. I thought rookie TE Tom Semisch, who was signed after being a rookie camp tryout, was just a camp body. But he keeps making plays.

    He’s my longshot to make the team, I loved his video I saw a month ago, another redzone threat.

    Another sign that Big Brother is a Pats fan.

    “Patriots offseason workouts got aerial Friday, as a drone outfitted with a camera hovered overhead.

    Patriots VP of Media Relations Stacey James told the drone was used as a “football initiative,” to provide another perspective .”

      Test at their facility before they deploy higher altitude drones over other team facilities, namely Miami’s.

    The Dolphins are continuing to show faith in their 2013 third-round pick. Thomas enters the summer with the first team and is the early favorite to start for Miami in Week 1 at left guard.

    Thomas, by the way, also isn’t concerned with the outside criticism from Dolphins fans and media.

    “I can really care less what outside people have to say, because they don’t know what goes on in house,” Thomas told on Monday. “They’re just listening to what [other] people say from the outside and Twitter and all that. So you don’t pay attention to that.

    “Your coaches tell you what you need to do, what you need to work on and how to be a professional.”

    Thomas said one point of emphasis this offseason was to get stronger. Too often Thomas struggled holding the point of attack last season both as a guard and offensive tackle. That led to quarterback sacks and negative plays in the running game.

    Thomas also changed his diet last year to get in better shape and it led to playing a career-high 14 games, including nine starts. Thomas believes Year 2 of dieting and getting stronger this offseason will make him a more complete offensive lineman.

    “Everything I did was predicated on getting bigger and stronger,” Thomas explained. “Right now I’m showing everything I did in the offseason. The development of becoming an offensive lineman, you have to get bigger and stronger every year.”

    Thomas has to hold off competition at left guard in training camp, most notably rookie fourth-rounder Jamil Douglas. Despite outside pessimism, Thomas believes he will be an improved player in 2015. This is a big third year for Thomas.

    “When I go out there now it’s easier for me,” Thomas said. “It’s no thinking. It’s just playing ball, which is what you want to get to.”

    Oh boy! Some really amateurish reporting going on from our local beats. Do they ever evolve and learn what GMs, coaches and players say?

    Ehhh heee… because Lippett pissed off 3 passes today do you see him as a starter? Ehhh heee!!!!

    • getterdone says:

      He’ll also piss off coaches by holding & interference when WR’s start getting past him.
      I wanna see his back pedal, how fluid his hip movement is, and how well he changes direction, etc.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Yeah there’s a ways to go. We already know Taylor can play, he just has to stay on the field and become durable/reliable. Bowman is a guy you can lean on, has experience, has made big plays, has good size and skills. He’s a solid pro DB/CB who also plays STs and excels there.

        I’m excited about the competition in the secondary and seeing it play out.

    • steveccnv says:

      But are their ceilings as high as Lippett’s? That’s all he was trying to say, sure it was amateurish, but an interesting thought none the less.

    Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
    Last Sturgis note: His career FG rate is 77.5%. Since Carpenter was released, DC has made 90.5% of his kicks for BUF.

    • steveccnv says:

      Sometimes getting cut is a wake up call, doesn’t mean he would’ve made 90% for us.

    • Tim Knight says:

      That was an Ireland money transition that has been completely revamped. He got cocky with extra picks and cap, went bonkers and really didn’t land any significant players with the top picks or his UFAs, and most of them have all been replaced.

      Let’s see if that was the problem. Let’s hope so. LOL

    GD, it’s just a pet peeve of mine with the zone and 2 man rush thing. Every game we lost you could go back and find other plays not made left on the field. It’s when it happens late fans use that as a colossal mistake.

    Tim you ever watch basketball? Most of the games either team has a chance to win at some point in the 4th qtr, so 75% of the time what happens for 3 qtrs. isn’t as important as what happens when the game is on the line.

    In the NFL at least the first 3 qtrs. are watchable, but it’s the same thing, 75% of the time either team can win it in the 4th. It’s when it happens late that fans use that as a colossal mistake, because when it happens late it is a colossal mistake, if your team loses.
