A Look at our Cornerbacks

#21 Brent Grimes – 5’10” 190

Brent Grimes

Brent went undrafted coming out of Shippensburg University in 2006. He was allocated to the Hamburg Sea Devils of NFL Europe, in which the Sea Devils won the Championship. Grimes then signed on with the Atlanta Falcons in 2007. In his 6 year career with the Falcons, Grimes established himself as one of the better cover corners in the NFL, with 13 INT’s in 4 years. In 2010, Grimes had finally become a full time starter. In 2012, Grimes suffered a torn achilles, which led to the Falcons letting Grimes become a free agent.

The Dolphins were more than happy to take a chance on the talented CB, and signed him in 2013. In 2013, Grimes started every game for the Dolphins and in impressive fashion, coming back from a brutal achilles injury. Grimes had 4 INT’s (1 for a TD), 60 tackles (52 solo) and 16 passes defensed. Quite a season 1 year removed from a torn achilles. In 2014, Grimes continued his excellent play, and made possibly the play of the year going high and reeling in an INT with one hand in similar fashion to the great catch by NYG WR Odell Beckham Jr. Grimes finished with a team high 5 INT’s (1 for a TD), 1 FF, 13 passes defensed, and 58 tackles (48 solo).  This fiery CB will no doubt be starting at LCB for the Dolphins.

#25 Jamar Taylor – 5’10” 200

Jamar Taylor

Jamar Taylor was drafted out of Boise St. in the 2nd RD of the 2013 NFL Draft, pick #54. Very fitting I’d say, if any of you are old enough to remember the TV  sitcom “Car 54”, and the famous line “Car 54, where are you?”. Dolphins fans can easily mutter “Pick 54, where are you?” Since being drafted relatively high, Taylor has only played in 21 games, and has only started 3. BTW, this is the Vontae Davis draft pick we received in the trade with the Colts.

In 2 seasons, Taylor has 34 tackles. When drafted, Taylor came in injured (Sports hernia). Were any of Ireland’s early picks healthy in that draft??? Dion Jordan and Jamar Taylor, the very first picks were damaged goods, and we’ve been suffering through this for 2 years now.

Taylor has talent, and that’s why he was drafted in the 2nd RD, but his body continues to fail him. Hopefully he can finally get healthy and truly compete to lock down a starting spot at CB.
______________________________________________

#29 Will Davis – 5’11” 186

Will Davis is all smiles after the Dolphins stopped the Patriots on fourth down to secure the win for the Dolphins. New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins, Sun Life Stadium. Miami, FL. 12/15/12. Jim Rassol, Sun Sentinel.

The Dolphins selected Will Davis with the 93RD pick in the 3rd RD of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Utah St. Davis has played in 15 games with no starts for the Dolphins. Last season, Davis had his ups and downs until he suffered a torn ACL and was done for the season after the Dolphins defeated the Bills 22-9. Davis got hurt on ST’s where he was the gunner. Another guy with potential, but so far, still very much a question mark.
______________________________________________

#24 Brice McCain – 5’8”185

Brice McCain

McCain was drafted in the 6th RD (188th pick) in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans. He played 5 years for the Texans playing in 70 games, with 10 game starts. In that time, McCain mostly was the nickel corner (slot CB). In the 5 years with the Texans, McCain 33 passes defensed, 5 INT’s and 92 tackles (74 solo).

McCain played for the Steelers last season, playing in 14 games, with 9 starts. He played both on the outside and in the slot, as he did occasionally for the Texans. McCain had his best production last year with 3 INT’s (1 for a TD), 1 FR, and 21 tackles (10 solo). As of now, McCain is going to compete for the slot CB position, but may also be considered for the perimeter, depending on how the competition goes.
______________________________________________

#30 Zack Bowman – 6’1” 197

Zack Bowman

Bowman was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the 2008 NFL Draft in the 5th RD (142nd pick). Bowman played 6 years for the Bears playing in 73 games, with 19 starts. Bowman has played both LCB and RCB. In 6 seasons with Da Bears, Bowman had 10 INT’s , 3 FF’s, 5 FR’s (2 for TD’s). Bowman has racked up a lot of tackles (167) with CHI, and all but 17 were solo.

Last season Bowman played for the New York Giants, played in 16 games with 5 starts. Bowman had 24 tackles (19 solo), 6 passes defensed, 2 INT’s, and 1 FR. With Bowman’s size, I would expect him to be in the running for a starting position.
______________________________________________

#28 Bobby McCain – 5’10” 192

Bobby McCain

Bobby McCain, named after the famous song “Me and Bobby McCain” was drafted by the Dolphins this year in the 5th RD (145th pick). McCain is of similar size and stature to Brent Grimes. McCain is expected to compete for the nickel (slot CB) position with Brice McCain.

In 4 years of College at Memphis, McCain played in 55 games with 136 tackles (80 solo), 12 INT’s (4 for TD’s), 16 passes defensed, and 1 FF. McCain also returned kicks at Memphis averaging 25.3 YPR.

#36 Tony Lippett – 6’3” 195

DAVIE, FL - MAY 8: Tony Lippett #36 intercepts the ball intended for Tyler McDonald #15 of the Miami Dolphins during the rookie minicamp on May 8, 2015 at the Miami Dolphins training facility in Davie, Florida. (Photo by Joel Auerbach/Getty Images) *** Local Caption *** Tyler McDonald;Tony Lippett

The Incredible Mr. Lippett was drafted by the Dolphins in the 5th RD (pick #156) (seems like a lot of our CB’s were drafted in the 5th, right?)

Tony Lippett is an interesting player. He starred as a WR at Michigan State, and had a very successful Senior year, with 65 receptions, 11 TD’s and 1198 yards, good for 18.4 YPC. Lippett also played some at CB, but didn’t register an INT in his time there. When the Dolphins drafted Lippett, he was drafted to play CB, not WR. In his first action in OTA’s, Lippett burst onto the scene and opened up plenty of eyes, with 3 INT’s! He has the size the Dolphins really wanted (6’3”), as we currently have a lot of CB’s 5’10” or smaller. Whether Lippett starts immediately is not important, but he will definitely be getting plenty of reps to see what he can do, and I wouldn’t be shocked if no one else steps up and grabs the job, that Lippett gives everyone a run for their money.
______________________________________________

In summation, I’d say we have a nice mix of veteran CB’s, and some young guys who can make a difference. Brent Grimes at 31 is still a top NFL CB. The big question is WHO STARTS OPPOSITE GRIMES?

Between young vets like Jamar Taylor and Will Davis, older vets like Zack Bowman and Brice McCain, and the newly drafted Tony Lippett, someone has got to just step up and make it clear the job is theirs. Last year we picked up Cortland Finnegan late in the offseason, almost an afterthought, and he never looked back. I’d love Jamar Taylor to finally emerge, or Will Davis, so we have a young player that can grow with the team. I can’t lie, even though it was just OTA’s, I can’t stop thinking how great it would be if Lippett stole the job. He has the size we could definitely use, and he most certainly has the ball skills as an accomplished WR, so ideally, if it were Lippett, I’d be ecstatic. It can happen, especially knowing the history of Taylor and Davis, and their inability to stay on the field. Of course, it could be Zack Bowman or Brice McCain too, but like I said, it’s about time for a young CB that we drafted to step up and take the reins, and become our long term starter! GO LIPPETT!

    For Son

    But Cam Newton’s reported $103.8 million extension Tuesday furthered Dye’s point. That brings the total six-year value of Newton’s contract to $118 million. Tannehill’s six-year total ($96 million) is $22 million less.

    Is Newton $22 million better than Tannehill as a quarterback? Their metrics say absolutely not.

    Newton’s career record is 30-31-1 in four seasons with the Carolina Panthers, compared to Tannehill’s 23-25 record in three seasons. Newton’s passer rating (85.4) also is very comparable to Tannehill’s (84.0),and Tannehill has a higher completion percentage (61.9 to 59.5).

    The main difference is Newton has two playoff appearances,which is something Tannehill knows he must improve. But nearly every other metric shows Newton and Tannehill are in the same category of solid,but not elite,quarterbacks.

  2. Rockphin says:

    I am really HOPING (yeah that off-season feeling, HOPE) That Taylor stays healthy and becomes a very good CB opposite of Grimes and some of the other guys develop to replace Grimes eventually with another very good CB.

  3. Rockphin says:

    “Vegas sets the over-under line for Dolphins at 8 1/2 wins in 2015”

    Boy they really go out on a limb don’t they?

  4. Rockphin says:

    OH! and FIRST, SECOND, THIRD & FORTH

    Have a great day guys.

  5. The Flying Pig says:

    Fifth!

  6. The Flying Pig says:

    Good job Mike E

    I swear I hear music playing when is read about Bobby McCain

  7. son of a son of a shula says:

    Great job Mike E and congrats on your anniversary milestone.

    Congrats to you too Wyoming.

  8. olddolphan says:

    VERY, VERY NICE ANALYSIS, Mike E.; Somehow, I fell a lot better about our defensive secondary than I do about our offensive line. Perhaps the expected pressure our D-Line is expected to bring will have a positive impact in the performance of our defensive backs. Now, Mike, if you could just do an article titled “Why Our Offensive Line Will Be Greatly Improved In 2015” I would and could go to work feeling a lot better about our favorite NFL team!! – – Or, perhaps, that article could be written by Tim Knight???
    ———————————————————————–
    Well the odd circumstance of the HOME ICE DISADVANTAGE continued last night in the Lightning’s 2015 post season experience. Chicago’s 2-1 win means that the VISITING TEAM has won 14 of Tampa Bay’s 21 playoff games this season!!! – – That may be unprecedented in NHL history!! – – Talk to you folks after work. Glad you folks enjoyed “ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!”
    ——————-
    PS; –Note to HERD. –Talk about nervous, the night before Super Bowl VII I don’t think I fell asleep until about 3 or 4 in the morning!! –But I was able to sleep in a bit because the game was played on a day I had off (Sunday). –I needed every minute of that sleep because, for 2 days, all I did was celebrate!!! – – The day AFTER the Super Bowl was my 26th birthday, so I just STAYED-UP and partied for 2 straight days!! – – THAT would kill me, now!!

  9. Mike E. says:

    Thanks guys.

    OD – I wish I could write that article for you. Maybe when some veterans are cut, and we pick one up that has a good season or two left in him, I can do that. Right now, I’d just be lying.

  10. Tim Knight says:

    Good job, Mike E! I like the competition at CB and S this year. It will be fun watching it play out.

    • Mike E. says:

      Thanks Tim. I’m going to try and look at every unit, we have plenty of time, that’s for sure. lol

  11. Tim Knight says:

    OD, at the moment all I have on the OL being better this year is that we have a bunch of guys who have a season under their belt in our offense and blocking scheme where last year everyone was learning it for the first time. We made some changes and added some new guys but the key will be young players stepping up. I’m not as much confident as I am hopeful they’ll be better this year.

    OL coach John Benton has a history of producing good O-lines with different personnel year to year so hopefully we’ll be another notch on his resume. 🙂

  12. wyoming85 says:

    Thanks Son

  13. stangerx says:

    Well done Mike E, and very helpful too. Still trying to figure out the whole gaggle at CB.

    With his size, wouldn’t be surprised if they use Lippett as a TE cover guy. And that role would give him a leg up on being active on game days.

    • Tim Knight says:

      We added some size in the secondary last year with Aikens and followed that up this year with Bowman and Lippett. No doubt we want some guys to matchup on bigger WRs and possibly TEs.

      By adding both McCain’s we also added those quick twitch guys who can cover the smaller quick slot receivers.

      We could end up utilizing these guys based on who we play.

  14. Mike E. says:

    This morning on NFL radio, Ross Tucker and Booger McFarland were talking about Cam Newton, and how he compares to other QB’s. Basically the premise was if you needed a QB for this season, there were about 12-14 QB’s Tucker would take over Newton, and he was asking if Booger agreed. Tannehill came up briefly (I was disappointed) (Tucker said he’s an arrow UP QB), but Booger said he would take Cam over Tanny. The QB’s that Tucker would take for just this upcoming season over Newton were Brady, Rodgers, Brees, Luck, Roethlisberger, Rivers, Flacco, Romo, Wilson, P. Manning, E. Manning, Dalton, and then the borderline guys were Matt Ryan, Matthew Stafford, Alex Smith, Ryan Tannehill.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      That is sort of a ridiculous amount of respect for Newton

      I would not take Brady, Brees or Manning over Newton – bc they only have a couple of years left on their careers. newton signed a 6 year contract. in 2015 you might say Brady and Manning are worth more in 2020 you probably won’t

      Rogers and Rothlisberger are the only two that jump out as no brainers IMO

      I like Newton better that Flacco, Romo, Wilson, Dalton and all the borderline guys (maybe not Tanny).

      I happen to like Rivers so I take him over Newton. And I take Luck over Newton too but I don;t think its as easy as most people think.

      I think I take Newton over Eli Manning as well

      Alex Smith or andy dalton over Newton is laughable

      Brady, Rodgers, Brees, Luck, Roethlisberger, Rivers, Flacco, Romo, Wilson, P. Manning, E. Manning, Dalton, and then the borderline guys were Matt Ryan, Matthew Stafford, Alex Smith, Ryan Tannehill

  15. Mike E. says:

    Piggy – It was just for this season, and I should add that part of the created criteria was winning football games, and not so muchstats. This happened when Tucker compared Newton to Ryan, and then Booger said Ryan lost 10 games last season with all that offensive firepower. Dalton’s record is insane, it’s 40-23-1. Once you add these different criteria, it really muddies the comparison.

    • getterdone says:

      The QB is the most important focal point of the team…Team, it’s still however a ‘TEAM’ game when it comes to wins and losses.

    • Tim Knight says:

      QB W/L records eh? 😉

    • The Flying Pig says:

      but the whole point of having that conversation is Cam newton’s contract
      which locks him up long term

      Its a stupid conversation
      They didn;t sign Cam Newton to a one year contract

  16. getterdone says:

    In the future, humans are going to be artificially intelligent.
    That’s the prediction of Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google (GOOGL, Tech30), who spoke Wednesday at the Exponential Finance conference in New York.

    Kurzweil predicts that humans will become hybrids in the 2030s. That means our brains will be able to connect directly to the cloud, where there will be thousands of computers, and those computers will augment our existing intelligence. He said the brain will connect via nanobots — tiny robots made from DNA strands.
    “Our thinking then will be a hybrid of biological and non-biological thinking,” he said.

    God help us….this isn’t gonna end well with idiots like this pushing the technology envelope in the wrong arenas….SMH!

    • Tim Knight says:

      He may not be right on the time line but we’ve already seen how humans have altered their behavior with electronic computer devices like smart phones etc. It’s like the most important item one cannot do without. There is no doubt that something like what he’s talking about is in our future.

      • getterdone says:

        Right, and its sliding down a very slippery slope from here on out…Can you say Freaky!

      • Jahndoh30 says:

        I don’t see how cell phones represents a slide down anything. Technology is a product of the human mind. You of all people GDP must believe that the ability to innovate is a gift from God. All technology has the potential to be weaponized, but it also has the potential to do good. The Nazi’s invented ballistic missles, and never got to use them in WW2 (to any extent beyond experimental) before the regime fell. The rest of the world took that technology and figured out how to put men on the moon.

        I guess I’m saying, technology is not to be feared IMHO, but I don’t live a life of fear either. I think all the fear mongering we see today is extremely unhealthy for the members of our society who partake in it.

    • Jahndoh30 says:

      Tiny robots made from DNA strands? That’s just stupid. The jetsons told me we’d have flying cars and populate outerspace by now too.

  17. Mike E. says:

    Flacco has been more successful than Newton, and has better stats too. I’m not a fan of Flacco myself though. I know team record and QB record don’t necessarily mean the team won because of the QB (Or lost for that matter), but Flacco is 72-40, and except for one season, has at least a 2-1 TD/INT ratio, and a SB winning season as well.

  18. getterdone says:

    Not sure I want to gain my NFL acumen from a guy named Booger.

  19. Tim Knight says:

    GD, to me technological advancements is evolution and part of human nature. That doesn’t mean mistakes or evil won’t come from it, but I don’t think fear and negativity should be the first reaction to it, because it also creates a lot of positivity.

      That whole courageous comparison thing is a waste of fucking time. It’s the spawn of nitwits who like to rile people up with dumb shit.

      • The Flying Pig says:

        Yeah I agree

        No one tells me what courage is
        Its my opinion based on what moves me

        when you see it and you are moved its an emotional reaction

        You know stepping on a tack is painful bc you feel it
        courage is no different

        I’m a little tired of people hijacking what I should feel like for a political agenda

      • jetsssuck says:

        the whole couragous military meaning gets lost with people who never served. It means are you couragous enough to kill someone you have no beef with and are ordered to kill a person on nothing but a order. Bowe Bergdahl deserves the firing squad. The guy who wants to be a women and the US gov is paying for it who leaked hundreds of US Spies lives deserves to die by firing squad.

  31. Tim Knight says:

    Piggy, I totally agree. I’m tired of people attaching politics to every fuckin thing in life.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      our political structure is adversarial
      and that makes its inherently narrow minded
      life gives people a lot of chances not to be narrow minded

      so yeah, I hate it when politics is pushed into everything
      it drives me crazy actually

  32. Mike E. says:

    I agree with Tim and Piggy. It’s courage on a completely different level what Bruce Jenner did. It’s courageous to change jobs because it’s a major life change, so imagine changing sexes. I can’t even comprehend it really, but I give him credit for finally doing what he’s always wanted to do.

    • I agree as well. This had been going on with him since he was a little child, it’s not like he just decided hey let me do this to be freaky. He has gone through deep depression over it as well.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Exactly and why do people have to make comparisons anyway? Jenner’s issue is his own issue and has nothing to do with say a fireman running into a burning building or whatever. People can really be assholes.

  33. stangerx says:

    Gigi — that gif of Newton shows the value of the “set for life” contract. Part of why signing them early comes with a discount. Think we got that by roping up Tanny early.

    • getterdone says:

      Was a smart move to get Tanny down on ink before Luck and others distorted the pay curve.
      Tanny was humble enough to sign and not play hardball. He’s confident in his abilities.

      Go Tanny!

  34. The Flying Pig says:

    I’m, not saying Jenner is courageous

    I’m just saying either you are inspired or not by something you think is courageous and I can respect anyone’s emotional reaction to that

    The Kardashian family (Jenner included) as a whole does not move me in anyway b/c they look, more than anything else, to be more concerned with getting attention than anything else. If it wasn’t a member of that family I might be inspired but I am much too skeptical about them to be

    Will only list the first three, but apparently anyone who stayed at a bar longer than intended and has had a hangover afterwards in the last year suffers alcohol abuse disorder. I get the problem, but…….
    —————————————-

    “To be diagnosed with alcohol abuse disorder, you must meet at least two of 11 criteria in the same 12-month period. The criteria, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, involve asking yourself if you have:

    1. Had times when you ended up drinking more, or longer than you intended?
    2. More than once wanted to cut down or stop drinking, or tried to, but couldn’t?
    3. Spent a lot of time drinking? Or being sick or getting over the aftereffects?”

    • Tim Knight says:

      The whole courageous thing has been a topic of debate in articles I’ve seen so your post just stirred it up. It’s all very silly, especially politics finding its way into it.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Its funny
      its just that people really think like that too

  37. Let’s face it – the Kardashians became famous because Papa Kardashian was buddies w/O.J. and allegedly helped him get rid of the clothes he wore when he murdered his ex and her friend and then even more famous because Kim well….um…..had a sex tape that was planted all over the net. They are everything wrong with this country. As for Bruce, he obviously tried to overcome/cover-up things by marrying a few times and having several kids; it just did not work. I feel sorry for those who are making fun of him or mocking him; he contemplated suicide several times.

  38. Tim Knight says:

    So is Caitlyn Jenner into guys or is she a lesbian? We know Bruce has been with women. Not that I care much what the answer is, just wondering.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      She is probably up for a fire hose sprinkled with fairy dust if it makes good TV

    • stangerx says:

      Who knows Tim? But no matter what he does he’ll never be a lesbian in my book. Transgender hetero might be a possibility though.

  39. Try Pod says:

    The thing I find fascinating about the whole Bruce Jenner thing is that the perception from those who have the biggest problem with his current situation feel people on the left are responsible for this, when Bruce himself identifies as a person from the right side of things.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I don’t think it’s a political issue.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      That is sort of what I touched on earlier

      For some people, If you don;t like something just claim it was the “liberals” or “conservatives” fault

      its hack politics

      everything people don;t like, doesn’t become the ideology of another groups politics….lol

      but that is what people do

      Lets face it, not everyone is intelligent enough to have serious politcal debates
      its easier to just speak about another group venonmously

      • Tim Knight says:

        Bingo!

      • Try Pod says:

        Very valid point. Not everyone has the maturity necessary to have discussions about the human condition. I still am squeamish about some things, but I think I am smart enough not to try to label them them be I don’t understand them.

    In the future, humans are going to be artificially intelligent.
    That’s the prediction of Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google (GOOGL, Tech30), who spoke Wednesday at the Exponential Finance conference in New York.

    Kurzweil predicts that humans will become hybrids in the 2030s. That means our brains will be able to connect directly to the cloud, where there will be thousands of computers, and those computers will augment our existing intelligence. He said the brain will connect via nanobots — tiny robots made from DNA strands.
    “Our thinking then will be a hybrid of biological and non-biological thinking,” he said.

    I have a neighbor who is a regional mgr for CompuCom and we once had a talk about the “cloud” pro/cons.He said the industry is going to save lots of money for big/medium companies since these cloud companies can hire the best. The job market isn’t going to be good for tech industry. He believes the only safe careers in the tech market is what he calls “smart hands”. They are techs who can take instructions well over the phone. Basically R & R.
    He believes the pro’s are a greater advantage for mankind. Medicine cures can be discovered where diseases can be cured because evryone is working at one location (after market cloud centers centralize and evryone outside of the organization can have access to centralized data/research. He believes this could take several decades but who controls and regulates the data in what country is what really scares him.

    Interesting points to consider. If our DL is one of the top units in the league with Wake, Suh, Mitchell/Phillips, Vernon…then do you blitz as much as you have in the past? More? Less?

    IMO….I think it will/should always depend on the game situation & matchups!
    Yes Suh & Co. can get a good enough pass rush on their own most of the time, but even so, it could then really open some lanes for the blitzes to now become very deadly & effective….maybe game changing turnovers with someone coming in unimpeded.
    Think about it.

    • Tim Knight says:

      We have some really good blitzers so I think we’ll still see some of that. But getting a good pass rush with 4 is always ideal.

        He might be making a statement from a point of principal on whatever exact group he figures he is now part of, but yeah I think the kicker on that is probably going to be a reality show. Not like he doesn’t know how much the Kardashians have made off the same.

  50. bat says:

    Tim .. If he didn’t do it for attention, why announce it? ..Why do the Vanity Fair shoot? ..Why have it coincide with the debut of the idioitic new TV show. Are you really that naive and trusting of the motives of this pinhead?

    “You don’t change your sex for attention, come on guys. Jenner is in the public eye and they’ve been following his transformation for months without him saying a thing, they’re called the media”.

    Tim … Jenner wasn’t in the public eye for anything other than being on the fringes of the Kardashian circus. Nobody gave a shit about Bruce Jenner or cared if they ever saw or heard from him ever again. Hence the fortuitous unveiling of Caitlyn and the accompanying frenzy of attention. Yes, the media is a willing accomplice, but someone had to alert the media to the grand plan. Reporters weren’t staking out Bruce Jenner for news because he was so interesting. I’m really surprised that you are buying into this crap.

    • Tim Knight says:

      You’re not reading what I said. He didn’t change his sex for attention, it’s something he’s struggled with his whole life. I agreed with you that he’s an attention whore like the rest and that he’ll willingly cash on in on this. What crap exactly am I buying?

    Tim .. That family will do ANYTHING for attention. Brucie baby is just trying to outdo the rest of the miscreants and advance up the family pecking order. You’re buying into the idea that Jenner is doing this purely for personal reasons. If that were so, it would not be the spectacle that it is and that he has encouraged. Believe what you will.

    • Tim Knight says:

      You keep conveniently ignoring some of what I said, do my posts use invisible fonts for some words? LOL

      You’re unfairly pretending to know his feelings and broad brushing it all for publicity. I think you’re wrong about that. Nobody gets a sex change purely for attention, it’s too much of an emotional and physical change.

    Yeah, Francesa is still on the FAN, you could even watch his show on the YES network. Last week when the Vanity Fair thing came out, the two late morning hosts Evan Roberts and Joe Benigno were on, and Roberts shows the picture to Joe, and Joe thinks it’s Jenner’s daughter, and says something to the effect that “Hey bro, she’s hot”. Roberts then tells Joe that that picture is Bruce, and Joe goes”Ohhhhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhhh, Noooooooooooo, Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh”. It was funny as hell.

    Tim … And you know this how? … You castigate me for interpreting his feelings yet proceed to do so yourself. The human mind is capable of all manner of grotesque and unimaginable actions. Why is so hard to believe that a member of such a perverse and dysfunctional family would be averse to such an act in the name of publicity, cash and fame?

  79. Al in MIA says:

    Tim,
    Just catching up with some of the comments but ‘transgender’ and ‘transsexual’ are not the same thing evidently. From what I understand, you can identify psychologically with a specific sex and not be attracted to same, opposite, or even any sex. It gets pretty deep when discussing transgender psychology lol.

  82. Tim Knight says:

    Bat, that’s my opinion. We’ve spent enough time on this already. Bruce or Caitlyn Jenner is not going to effect our lives anyway so why continue debating speculation? The taco discussion is way cooler. LOL

  83. bat says:

    Mike LMAO @ Benigno .. He’s also very entertaining to listen to when the Jests are struggling …

    Walker was slowed in the early going of 2014 as he continued to work his way back from offseason ankle surgery. Walker had a good athletic skill set and is sleeper lineman who has upside for the NFL. He did not participate in the Combine.

    The Trojans moved Walker inside to guard for 2013. That paid off as he was vastly improved there. However, Walker’s year ended early with a broken ankle against UCLA. That ankle injury continued to bother him during fall training camp. He has a lot of athletic ability and a skill set to develop.

I see a real spark in Jamar the way he’s practicing, but just in his overall mental attitude. He’s confident, he’s determined, he wants to go out and win a job.”

    I’ve seen this quote several times and it just kills me that no one has fixed it or even put a correction in. I’m pretty sure Coyle didn’t mean to say “just in his overall mental attitude”.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Maybe this doesn’t come across so good but there was a story around this time last year that Jamar was frustrated over his rookie year because of injuries and that he considered quitting football but his girlfriend convinced him to stay.

    Rob, You better check again. What are the first four pictures after the article? BOTM ! FTW!

    I’m thinking of hiring Alyssa Milano to do a UNICEF commercial for my benefit. 🙂

    Rhino, if you are going to hire her anyway, maybe you can do your buddy Rockphin a solid?

    DR. RHINO; Last time the Warriors won the NBA Title I was still watching the NBA. Liked them b/c, I believe, Rick Barry was on that team, right?? Watched Rick play at U-M when they played their home games in the Miami Beach Convention Center (the site of Liston vs. Clay in 1964).–Barry lead the NCAA in scoring his senior year at Miami. Watched him almost single-handidly take down the Florida Gators that season at the MBCC. –Three Gators fouled out trying to guard him. –Barry was something like 22-23 that night with his underhanded free throws. AWESOME!!!

    I don’t think there was a guy in the schoolyard when I was a kid that didn’t try to shoot the underhanded free throws like Rick Barry did.

      I don’t get why guys like Dwight Howard and Diondre Jordan from the Clippers don’t shoot underhanded FTs. I mean, wouldn’t you want to be able to stay in the game at the end, instead of coming out, because of the hack a shaq?

    Grimes only had two PD and 0 INTs the last 7 games of the year. Which might suggest his second half and first half had a large split. Given the depletion of the whole Miami secondary during the second half of last season I don’t know if it was due to a change in the schemes Miami used him in or if he really did run out of gas…

    • Tim Knight says:

      Remember we were literally signing corners off the street and cutting some trying to get through the season. The LBs were banged up and there was a lot rotating guys in and out and I believe communication was an issue. It really came apart on defense and that can’t happen again.

      The plan with Chris McCain from what Philbin said about him if he wins the starting SOLB job is he plays base OLB and then serves as a 3rd down edge rusher at times. So when we go to nickel what we might see is McCain go to DE on long down and distance situations and replace one DL with a nickel corner. Very little change in personnel – keeping guys who are in the game mentally on the field and utilizing their versatility.

    Grimes was rated 24th best CB and Finnegan 38th best CB last year.
    That is not very good.

    for Rob

    Son, I remember that with Jamar Taylor but he was frustrated more than anything else. He said he loves the game too much and retiring from it really wasn’t an option but his situation was challenging him. He played in 12 games last year until his shoulder shut him down. So he was past the rookie injuries which was also an illness, he had some medication issues fucking with his organs. I believe his injury was a sports hernia that he’s gotten over.

    So it’s not like Taylor has hurt his legs/knees etc. which can strip a corner of his main assets. We’ll see. He’s shown promise when he’s played. I wants him to lock down the other side opposite Grimes. I think he’s got some big play ability, can support the run and competes with receivers.

    Mike E:
    Really nice break down on the CBs. Good write up bro.

  132. Ken says:

    I think Rock has found a way to make the extra point play more exciting. Just use her as a kicking tee.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Apples and oranges. The only way to truly rank players like that is to have them compete in the same setting, other than that it’s a farce. Game, opponent, circumstance, scheme, personnel, matchups……… we can go on and on. How do you compare CLE @ IND and NE @ MIA and rank players?

    We’re not posting nude or vulger pics guys please remember we have ladies here and I’m sure there are plenty of opportunities for kids to see this stuff.

    So Knock it off!

    • herdfan says:

      You shouldn’t even have to say this. Plenty of opportunities to ‘see this stuff’ on the internet for anyone who wants to see it. Everyone knows there are ‘ladies’ here. The fact is it doesn’t matter to them. It’s total bullshit to say ‘I didn’t know it was going to be like that’. If you have to ask yourself whether or not something is ok to post the answer is no, it isn’t ok. What a fucking waste of time and effort this has turned out to be. 😦

  134. Brian in NY says:

    In Rock’s defense, he realized that he went over the line immediately after he posted, and said as much. His reply was something to the effect of “I didn’t realize it was going to be that graphic”. Seemed sincere to me; let’s not kill him for it.

  135. Rockphin says:

    Folks, I apologized immediately after the photo posted and suggested it be moderated. The picture was much smaller on the site I linked it from and I couldn’t see the “detail” that was visible on the larger format picture that posted here. The picture did not appear to be “nude” before I saw it in the much larger format on here. I will refrain from posting pictures in the future.

    Herd, My apology is sincere and not bullshit. I would never intentionally make anyone here uncomfortable. I hope you can forgive my mistake.
