    Thanks for the link on Suh GDP. Man I can’t wait to see him play a real game for us.

  2. getterdone says:

    Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
    Ndamukong Suh said getting the ball run on a defense is “disrespectful” and “embarrassing.” Dolphins allowed 165.3 rypg in last six games.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      Yes sir, guys WILL step up now.

    • steveccnv says:

      So if that’s how he feels, my guess would be he won’t allow guys to fuck off and not stop the run. Maybe RT could learn a thing or two from him.

      • son of a son of a shula says:

        You see what son see, RT will see when hitting start then he will understand.
        Suh here, everything different now.

      • steveccnv says:

        What he needs is that fire that Suh has, that Danny had. With his Gomer Pile demeanor he has a tough time leading.

  3. steveccnv says:

    Fuking Rodney Dangerfield, it’s been so long since I had sex, I got arrested for having a dead weapon.

  4. Al in MIA says:

    Son / GDP
    I like what Hickey & Tannenbaum have done thus far. Mosley paired with Suh is a known commodity and it will certainly push Mitchell to earn his pay; other backups like Johnson to step up their game.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      And if I’m a linebacker I better be making not missing tackles. They’ll be there to be made.

      • steveccnv says:

        And it doesn’t get any easier than playing LB behind our line. You stink it up, go to a team that doesn’t have a great DL and see how many times a game you’ll get hit.

  5. Tim Knight says:

    Al, I posted this early. I wrote it myself too. LOL

    “I think we brought Mosely in to deepen the competition at DT and to push some of the young bucks. When they see Suh, Mitchell and Mosely with their experience and Phillips as a 2nd rd pick, they realize there aren’t many jobs left so they better make it hard for the coaches to release them. If Mosely shows he’s still got it and those young bucks don’t step up, we covered ourselves. If say A. Johnson beats out Mosely for the last spot, we win there too.”

    This was from a discussion that Mosely’s contract doesn’t mean he’s a lock to make the team.

    • steveccnv says:

      What it says is, we brought in Mosely, because they don’t want the ball run on us period.

      I don’t care so much if we aren’t a top run D, as long as we don’t use 8 in the box, don’t get run on at will, and even more so, if we can get away with 6 in the box on first down (like the 49ers did a few yrs ago) and be a shutdown pass defensive team.

  6. Tim Knight says:

    Steve, not all QBs act like Dan Marino did and some of them won Super Bowls. I know that hurts to say but it’s true. This idea that you have to lose your fucking mind to be competitive is a fallacy.

  7. son of a son of a shula says:

    Steve, I hold out a lot of hope for RT letting his hair grow out some, I don’t know why but it gives me much hope going forward. But yes he will have to come close to Suh’s intensity in some way. There’s no way with his contract that I think he’ll stand for receivers lolly gagging it and not knowing where to be. That may very well have been one of the best things that happened to him actually, we’ll see.
    I still would like to see smashed I-pads myself but…

    • steveccnv says:

      I’ve seem him show it once, we got the ball about midfield, and I thought to myself has the Danny in RT come out. We scored a TD on that drive.

  8. Al in MIA says:

    It will be interesting to see how good the competition at DL will be in camp and to see if its good enough to have coaches sacrifice LB/DB spots to keep more DL talent.
    Imagine a goal line stand with Suh/Mosley/Mitchell/Phillips lol.

  9. Al in MIA says:

    Tim,
    True but Peyton & Aaron have been known to bitch at refs all game to get calls their way.

  10. Mike E. says:

    Bitching about calls does not constitute a fiery leader. More like a whiny biatch! lol

  11. getterdone says:

    OMG, I just came back to the blog and the worry is RT (Tanny right), getting inspiration from Suh…
    WTF? Smh!

    Source: GetterDone Phins

  12. getterdone says:

    Yeah, maybe Suh can scare Tanny into improving for the 4th year in a row. πŸ™„

  14. Tim Knight says:

    So now it’s not so much being fiery, but a sense of urgency for Tannehill. I really don’t get any of that. I’m also not concerned about any of that – we need to play well on offense and score more points.

    • Phindog says:

      You Sir.. Need to Stop Making Sense…

    • steveccnv says:

      What don’t you get about it’s winning time, that’s when the big boys/the stars/the gamers come out to play. What did Jordan do for 3 qtrs.? He got the rest of his teammates involved. What did he do in the 4th qtr? He told them to go stand in the corner, if I need you you’ll know.

      Where do you think the saying when the going gets tough, the tough get going comes from?

  15. getterdone says:

    Suh will put the sense of urgency in our OL, OG’s especially,
    ‘Damn it, I said block me MF’er!!!’ (Smack)

  16. stangerx says:

    When cheerleaders go bad…..she even coached the squad for six years.
    ——————————–
    “A former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader pleaded guilty on Tuesday in a Delaware court to a charge of raping a 15-year-old boy who was a classmate of one of her children. She gave alcohol to the boy and performed oral sex on him, according to court documents.

    She entered a guilty plea to one count of fourth-degree rape in the Sussex County Superior Court in Georgetown, Delaware”

    • getterdone says:

      Damn lucky dude

    • getterdone says:

      OK ok, disclaimer alert…I was kidding…it is tragic…well, ok then, it surely isn’t right.
      I hope she gets a ‘stiff’ penalty.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I know it’s wrong in society, but… nice! I’m sure he was traumatized… I mean awesomeatized. πŸ˜‰

      Listen, I have a different view of a woman and a teen boy than I do a man and a teen girl. I think most of us can understand that. Unless the woman was abusive which she probably wasn’t, young boys dream of stuff like this. If Farrah Fawcett, Cheryl Teigs or Olivia Newton-John did that to me, I would have been okay. πŸ™‚

  17. Mike E. says:

    Not right, but sounds like a a dream when I was 15 years old. I’d have ended up a happy alcoholic.

    • Tim Knight says:

      My friends and I would have been way okay with that. Sorry, but that’s the reality for those who don’t see it that way.

  18. stangerx says:

    And just so you guys aren’t thinking about a current cheerleader….this is who did it in current time.

  19. son of a son of a shula says:

    I’m not trying to change anyone’s mind, those who see it see it and think there is a step besides running the offense that would truly benefit Ryan, the team and subsequently us the fan.
    Is somebody really going to say Peyton Manning isn’t a fiery player and leader not that I’m saying RT has to be like him necessarily but that simple fact, Peyton is a fiery player and leader, is hard to argue whatsoever.

    • Phindog says:

      Don’t confuse fiery with being a crochety old man. Peyton’s an old grumpy guy.. LOL !!

    • Tim Knight says:

      He makes the same ah shucks faces as Eli and Peyton has also been playing a lot longer than Tanny. Let’s go back to Peyton at Tanny’s age when it took him 6 years to win a playoff game. He was still becoming Peyton. I don’t consider Peyton fiery, I consider him a student of the game and a competitive leader of his offense through experience. I think there is a difference in fiery and competitive. Peyton is not the hot head Marino was.

      • steveccnv says:

        You don’t have to bitch out a WR when he runs the wrong route to be fiery, you just have to have that competitive nature about yourself, to do whatever you can to win.

        When I played basketball, and the game got close at the end I’d run back on D to stop a fast break when everyone else would dog it, because I wanted to win so bad that being tired didn’t matter.

        Look how bad Bellavadoba and Igoudala want to win, they get it.

  20. Tim Knight says:

    When I was in 7th and 8th grade the more mature hot girls were dating dudes in HS. When I was in HS they were dating college dudes or guys in their 20s. There was also a male student football player who was like a man banging one of the Spanish teachers. She was never prosecuted, it was more like rumor and the raising of eyebrows. But from what I know it was true. It was different back then and the only difference today is the age laws.

    Like I said, I think it’s different for boys than girls. I think older dudes praying on younger girls is more taboo. In guy circles, we say nice, bro! You’re the fuckin man.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      I get it but it still is creepy that a woman that age is getting a young boy drunk to seduce, sure he loves it, but she’s whacked out.

  21. Mike E. says:

    Son

    No one here is saying the woman is not wrong, I think we’re all just saying if we were that kid how right it would be.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      cucamunga broad

    • stangerx says:

      I don’t know Mike E. One of my parents friends coming on to me would have freaked me the shiot out. And if it was a forty-something guy going after a 15-year-old girl we wouldn’t even be talking about anything other than how long he should spend in prison.

  22. son of a son of a shula says:

    Ryan isn’t as aww shucks as Eli come on that’s not being nice. What you don’t like Tannehill now? LOL
    Eli looks like he’s a six year old, Ryan’s at least 12 or 13

    • steveccnv says:

      It’s not the aw shucks, or the get in you face and yell that matters, that’s just a how some people act, it’s the competitiveness that’s lacking. I don’t care what version of it he uses, he just needs to do it. Surely there’s more fire there than we know, I’d bet the people around him say he’s competitive as hell, but it doesn’t play out on the field.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I think you’re equating the team failing and putting it all on Tannehill. He competes his ass off. He gets knocked around, keeps getting up and playing. Even Suh said something to that effect about coming here. He said he and his Lions teammates knocked him around pretty good and he kept getting up and playing. He had major respect for that and he likely wouldn’t be here if he thought Tannehill was a sap.

      • steveccnv says:

        I’m not equating failing to him, if there were 53 RTs on our team we’d win the SB every year. He just happens to play the most important position on the field, so when he improves on something it’s magnified for the team, if our LG does a little better blocking it may not mean much.

    • Tim Knight says:

      LOL

      I see Ryan growing in all phases as a QB and I’m enjoying it. We all wanted to land a top talent in the 1st round since Marino. We finally do it and now we have a script he should follow. Fuck that! Be your own man Ryan and go make the playoffs and win a championship bro! πŸ™‚

      • steveccnv says:

        We’re all just nitpicking, if he was LeBron we’d all be doing the same thing, we just want to win.

  23. Mike E. says:

    It’s Lauren’s fault. She wears the hot pants in the family. lol

  24. son of a son of a shula says:

    Yeah Tim, its not worth getting all defensive about its what Steve said we’re nitpicking and I agree with everything you are saying about Tannehill and I can’t wait for this season.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I’m defending Ryan but not at all being defensive as in irritated. I agree, let this team take their course.

      I happen to agree with Jahn, we’re kind of overdo and have enough talent that we should probably break the mold of mediocrity sooner than later and become one of the better teams. I feel that this year. If we fall short again this year, I’ll have that arms in the air “what the fuck does it take attitude?” I mean really, what else do we need to do?

  25. steveccnv says:

    There has to be a double standard, because the 15 yr old boys that would do it takes it as an accomplishment, while a 15 yr old girl, well most of them, are traumatized.

  26. Tim Knight says:

    I’ve admitted that there is a double standard, not by law but in male and female society. But you know what, it exists in human behavior.

    If you’re a 15 year old dude and your Dad hears you got with that hot older woman down the street, he says ways to go my boy. He’d probably also say don’t tell your Mom. But if Mom and Dad find out older male neighbor had sex with their 15 years old daughter, they both go berserk!

  27. Tim Knight says:

    Stanger, my friends back in that time would have said to you, what are you a fag dude? LOL

  28. son of a son of a shula says:

    My two guys Cam and Suh combined for over TWO HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS in contracts this year and neither one is all tatted up, but they sure are vilified by everyone. Laugh all the way to the bank boys and keep showing THEM how its done.

  29. stangerx says:

    And maybe there is a triple standard. What if it was a male with the 15-year-old boy. I’m not proud of it now but that freaked the hell out of me at one point. When I was a junior there was this senior who came on my rugby team for the first time. I heard from two frosh that he’d brought them and one of their friends over to his place one night and essentially tried to get them drunk and take advantage of them.

    He was down low on the teams, but we still practiced together. In one team drill he’s catching a pop kick. I ran out in front of the rest at full speed and absolutely smacked him, left him writhing on the ground (even I think it was just wind out). Never said a word, but he was messing with my flock…..and he never came back.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I think it depends on how it’s done. Is it sensual or a violation as in you’re not into it? I don’t accept any violation of one’s self. If that 15 year old boy felt that, then she violated him. End of discussion.

      But 15 is HS, freshman or sophomore. Most boys and girls that age when I was growing up already had their hands down each others pants. Maybe not intercourse, but exploration was in full gear and the full monty was right around the corner. It was for me at least at 16 but with a 16 years old girl.

      • stangerx says:

        I think they set the statutory rape limit for a reason. Don’t care who it is with who……it’s like don’t touch this to older folks for good reason. And yeah I went off on the gay thing in college……but this was a senior going after freshman. That was predatory in my mind. Not usual; so I saw agenda. And you have to realize the two on my team of the three reached out to me about it. They were bothered after.

  30. steveccnv says:

    Nobody expects Suh to put up with any crap. Why is that? Because he gets it and we all know he gets it, so when the game is on the line an inferior lineman isn’t going to be able to block him. They may block him for most of the game, but not at winning time. I wonder if scouts look at that? Joe Blow is going to make a great pro, look how he blocked Suh, but not putting emphasis on how he blocked him late in the 4th qtr, and wonders why the guy can’t hack it in the NFL.

  31. son of a son of a shula says:

    You better not be single blocking Suh if you’re trying to win the game, but that just frees up one of the Ends or McCain wherever the hell they might have him coming from.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I think our front 7 has the potential to be scary this year. I think we have enough talent in the back end that they’ll keep up their end of the bargain.

  32. son of a son of a shula says:

    And you can’t compare the Suh in Detroit to the Suh we will see in Miami. Think Shaq with the Magic and the Shaq with the Lakers.

  33. Tim Knight says:

    Stanger, I agree with you on your situation, it probably was predatory. Not cool!

    I worked at a motorcycle shop when I was 14 (freshman) off the books making $3 per hour 3 hours a day after school emptying trash cans, gathering up the mechanics dirty rags for laundry, filling up the soda machine and washing and polishing some really nice motorcycles on display. That $45 a week was killer back in 1980 at 14 years old.

    So one of the younger mechanics probably 19, I knew him through the grapevine – friends etc. knew him. He gave me a ride home one day in his van and we were just BSing and driving around. We were driving past some sexy girls and I said, there’s some really pretty girls in my school, and he said there’s some really good looking guys too………..

    He was testing me and I changed the subject. He wouldn’t violate me because he wasn’t a violent guy and respected me, but he was checking. He also knew my uncle who worked there in the past and got me the job would have killed him. Excuse me, hurt him. So I get it. πŸ™‚

    The big picture, it’s better for adults/more mature teens to stay in the deep end of the pool when you hit a certain age and stay away from the shallow end. Tell that to the 60’s and 70’s and even 80’s big concert era when 13-17 year old female groupies were all about hooking up with the guys in the band in their 20s and 30s. It happened a lot. There are a lot of songs about it.

    • stangerx says:

      Checking is one thing….but still not right with a kid like you were. An even if happens elsewhere no excuse. But will admit college me was prejudiced. Wouldn’t have been laying out a guy on my team for doing the same to frosh girls. But then the frosh girls who were targets weren’t turning to me after.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I agree. Just pointing out how this was going on even back then. He was 19, I was 14, my uncle/big brother was 24 – 5 years older than that dude. Unless you were a badass, age had rank back then and my uncle if pissed off would say it’s go time even if he lost. He looked after his own and I was his nephew/young bro.

        Nothing bad happened but it existed and that’s just a story from my perspective. I know of many others from family and friends. Some of it way more ugly but I’m not going there.

        I’m done with this topic. Not to shut anyone off, I’ll listen, I just have nothing more to say about it.

        So what do you think of Chris McCain’s potential? I say regardless of what his role is, he plays a lot of reps on both defense and STs. Why not get everything out of a UDFA with talent on the cheap and let him earn his big payday 2 years from now?

      • stangerx says:

        LOL — I get all my McCains confused……but Chris is still my favorite. He’s gotta a shot. Cheers.

  34. Tim Knight says:

    Steve, we might be really good with our front 4 rotation.
    LDE Wake, Shelby
    LDT Suh, Phillips
    RDT Mitchell, Mosely/Johnson
    RDE Vernon, Fede

  35. stangerx says:

    Just wanted to point out that the Pirates have won six straight……….and five of those have been shutouts. But don’t worry……that should stop tmrw. Have the fifth starter going. Not a bad streak though.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Your Pirates remind of the Giants. Win with pitching and good overall baseball. The Mets are right there with ya at 36-30, you 37-27, but the Mets are not as good an overall team, not yet. πŸ™‚

      Without the Mets’ starting pitching and a couple of good bullpen guys, we’re not a good team. We’re also very wounded and hurt. Ask Mike. LOL

  36. The Flying Pig says:

    Congrats Rhino and Jahn!!!
