Suh is here, everything is different now

 by son of a son of a shula

Aw would you shut up and quit saying the same thing over and over again son – sheesh we’re sick of it. I understand if you feel that way but let me explain a little before you tune me out.  Once in a while things happen to teams and it changes them, sometimes for the better – see Shaq to  the Lakers and sometimes not so much – see Haynesworth to the Redskins. Of course without having seen Suh yet to play a game in Miami either way is possible. Suh chose to come to Miami to establish himself as one of the great players in history and to become a champion. Quite frankly the change in this team is palpable.

The Dolphins paid 114 million dollars and in walked instant swag. Suh wasn’t going to go to a loser, he had enough of that. It was evident that Miami was close but lacked a couple of ingredients. Swag ie; confidence and leadership among them. Suh brings both. Throw out a few chumps who didn’t embrace a team first attitude along with a few guys who simply didn’t get it done and bring in a bonafide superstar. Suh plays 80% of the snaps a year, goes to ProBowls, and forces teams to have to game plan against him. How many Offensive Coordinators lost sleep over facing Starks or Odrick? Be honest.

Suh strives to be great and everyone around him feeds off of that. Suh makes us legit. No longer is Miami a team that has decent talent but can’t get over the hump. We now have expectations. Expectations of making the playoffs, finally. Suh makes everyone on the team legit. How much would everyone be questioning the big contract Tannehill, without a playoff appearance, got without Suh being here. Without Suh could we even have taken a potential star Wide Receiver with the 14th pick in the draft or had to settle for a player to help out the front 7 who got smoked last December.

 

The X’s and O’s are pretty simple. Miami has a beast coming right through the front door, lining up a few short steps from your QB. You have to design to block him and even then you are likely not too. He then makes both of the DE’s job easier, he makes the Linebacker’s jobs easier and if the secondary, which happens to have Brent Grimes, doesn’t have to cover as long they instantly become better. These things are simple to figure out and to understand. The difference is what happens on the sidelines, at practice and in the locker room. Guys see this greatness, this desire and dedication up close every day.  They all become better. This is why the name “Chief” has been given to Suh inside the locker room and by the coaches. The Chief is showing them how to be great.

Enjoy this run Dolphin fans. We’re in for a fun ride with Suh shredding offensive lines as Miami kicks ass this year.

The Others

Ryan Tannehill based on every video I have seen looks so good. He pops up out of his drop and is firing darts. He’s running bootlegs, I’ve seen him running drills for the read option. His speed looks good. Everything is looking good for Tannehill as he enters year 2 in the Lazor Offense. Is Ryan about to become a Pro Bowler?

Jamil Douglas wasted no time taking first team snaps. He may have the opportunity to lock down the LG position with Dallas Thomas now nursing a shoulder injury.  I’m anxious to see him in pre season games.

LaMichael James has elicited quite a bit of buzz so far. Is he the change of pace guy we really haven’t had in some time. Even Ricky and Ronnie were similar.

Jarvis “Juice” Landry for all he did last year to endear us this early he has fully surpassed so far this year. We may be watching another bonafide star round into shape. The future is so bright for him. I love the energy and devotion he brings. We’re all excited to watch his second season here with the Dolphins.

Terrence Fede is said to be making huge steps and based on the talk you hear may very well be a huge part of the team this season. He’ll [play Special teams and play a pivotal rotational role in the D-Line. He should be a lot of fun to watch these next few weeks.

There are more. I love the vibe I get from camp this year. The competition is tough but so is the resilience. Guys like Brice McCain, who’s going at it every day with Landry and receiving high praise or Jordan Cameron fitting in seamlessly with this offense and becoming a legit Red Zone threat for us. We see Greg Jennings with his inspired play and leadership becoming a trusted target. Rashad Jones appears to be gearing up for a Pro Bowl type of year and Ju’wan James showing improvement entering his second year after a stellar rookie year.

Looking Good Miami.

Suh is here, everything is different now!

    Geez the local media sure like to beat their meat over a scrimmage. Suh should be schooling Billy Turner but I beat Turner is learning plenty.

    • Rockphin says:

      Actually the local media like to beat on the Dolphins. They have been spewing negative spin articles for years. It’s like they are better for being made to cover a mediocre team.

  2. Tim Knight says:

    Mike E, I said the same thing last night when the game was tied and even when we were down and I thought we might lose, great baseball game. Although I thought the ump behind the plate sucked for both teams.

    • Mike E. says:

      That call on their catcher Casali was awful. The ball clearly hit him, and he definitely didn’t swing at it. He was inconsistent, but I guess that happens some days to all of us.

  3. wyoming85 says:

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
    Look what I found!

  4. uwantwat says:

    Mike does this mean your love child Arthur Lynch is on the outer? Nomar really is a tool.

  5. Mike E. says:

    Lee

    The media definitely seizes every opportunity to point out things both good and bad. Some say they enjoy the bad more, and with some, it’s possible.

  6. Rockphin says:

    Of course the world chooses my birthday on which to end.
    Omar Kelly predicting and / or saying Ryan Tannehill is a first tier quarterback?

    This has to be the end. Oh well I guess 46 years is enough.

  7. Mike E. says:

    Lee

    Not sure what’s going on with Lynch, haven’t hear a whole lot about him so far. Have you?

    • wyoming85 says:

      Your predictions are coming true!
      Another too soft TE?

      Running with the seconds and thirds from what I hear/read

  8. uwantwat says:

    Yep he was still in front of Semsich and Robinson. Coaches were pleased with his efforts during OTAs and Mini -camp.
    I gave up on the local beat writers years ago, buncha negative whining pussies in my book. Reminds me of Bat’s posts!

    You never cared about my mind you always just liked my avatar

    I wonder if I copy and paste everything Rock says his Avi will come up again?

  10. Tim Knight says:

    Yeah it seems that Lynch is either only effective as a blocker when the pads come on because that’s why he was drafted, or maybe not even that. He hasn’t seemed to jump out at anyone as a receiver.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Well Simms isn’t a a great receiver to begin with

      How many blocking TEs do we need

      • Tim Knight says:

        Sims is actually a better receiver than he’s given credit for. I think you always need at least two TEs who can block.

    • uwantwat says:

      Tim isn’t that exactly what we need as a 3rd TE. Semsich is huge pass catching TE and Robinson has just found his way back onto the field after injury. Lynch IMO was only ever going to be the 3 cab of the rank behind JC &DS.

  11. Tim Knight says:

    Happy Birthday, Rock!

  12. uwantwat says:

    Oh Yeah Happy Bisthday from me too Rock. Gett FFR to hook you up with one of his spare NLC for the night.

  13. The Flying Pig says:

    Happy birthday. Rock

  14. uwantwat says:

    Bloody typos, getting late here and the sleep pill is kicking in.

  15. Mike E. says:

    Happy Birthday Rock! Many more happy ones to follow!

  16. Mike E. says:

    I actually never thought Lynch was soft, just that he wasn’t very physically talented, especially as a receiver. Cameron is the exact opposite of Lynch. lol

  17. Rockphin says:

    Thanks Uwantwut & Piggy. I went to Lids in the mall to buy myself a new dolphins hat for my birthday they only had shitty ones where can you buy a nice dolphins hat?

  18. getterdone says:

    Wyo, thanks for the clip above of the scrimmage….now whenever we watch the games it will sound like boos on tv when Miami is on defense.

    SUHhhhhh…..SUHhhh…….Suh 😀

  19. getterdone says:

    Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
    Branden Albert was excited to put on pads last week, but still needs to build strength before he’s ready for a full return. Pain-free tho.

  20. getterdone says:

    Dave Hyde @davehydesports
    Fixing the OL shouldn’t be this hard. The Dolphins have spent more on it – two 1st rnd picks in top 19, big $$ free-agent – than anyone.
    __________________________________
    If this OL doesn’t come together, then dare I say that Benton must suck and has lost his mojo? 😉

    • Tim Knight says:

      Pouncey was a 1st rd pick in 2011 and James a rookie last year. Albert was a former 1st rd pick by the Chiefs but he’s not playing right now. What does just throwing out 1st rd picks mean in the big scheme of things? We’re trying to find two starting guards. The entire OL was revamped last year. Everyone knows an OL needs to build chemistry. Yet we have reporters acting like they just watched football for the first time. SMH

  21. Tim Knight says:

    Let’s remember Lynch was a 5th rd pick, not a blue chipper not living up to expectations.

    In certain situations in games you need TEs who can chip DEs and man up against LBs. Sims last year made a block against Calvin Pace that wowed me. He recognized Pace was going to come clean and kill Tannehill, adjusted to the play and stonewalled Pace. Very impressive.

  22. wyoming85 says:

    Happy birthday Rock!

    Send your Avi over for a spankin! 😉

    #Dolphins defense:

    Bobby McCain: INT, 2 PBUs
    Grimes: INT
    Lippett: 2 PBUs
    Taylor/Bowman: PBU each
    Hull/Francis: Forced fumble each

  24. getterdone says:

    LeGarrette Blount has been diagnosed with a sprained right MCL, but is expected to be ready for Week 1.
    Blount is suspended for Week 1, so he’ll got an extra week of rest before debuting in Week 2. Blount went down in Thursday’s training camp practice. The Boston Globe expects Blount’s absence from the majority of camp and preseason to result in “more carries” for Jonas Gray and Brandon Bolden.

  25. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    You don’t have to remind me that Lynch is a 5th RD pick. That’s what I was upset with in the first place. 🙂

    • Tim Knight says:

      I know and never understood it. We had no shot at the other TEs you liked and they’re not even progressing all that well with their other teams like Ebron and Amaro.

  26. herdfan says:

    Happy Birthday Rock! I see you’re back to being an ass. 😉

  27. olddolphan says:

    SO ROCK, How old are U, anyway?? I’m gonna take a wild guess and say that YOU, like Young Stanger, are YOUNGER than my oldest daughter, who turns 50 near the end of this month. – -Kinda shoots a hole in my wife’s claim to be “39,” doesn’t it??

    Welcome to the blog uwantwat! Glad to see you’re posting with us. I had noticed we had hits from Australia. Now we just need to get the ones from France, Israel, Mexico and any others I’ve missed to jump in and post. 🙂

  42. getterdone says:

    Wyo, that throw to Cameron seemed well placed, true it could have been more out in front of him, but it was right there….Cameron tracked it well.

    I hope he can play all 32+ games he’s contracted with us for.
    He is gonna be a Red Zone TERROR!

    • wyoming85 says:

      Well for all the bottom line guys!

      It is a reception!

      Just like the drops are incomplete!

      Works both ways right? 😉

        No, if the DB would have had a trampoline with him like he should have that play would have been snuffed out.

    NOW, as for hats, I just can’t ORDER ONE, as I think U remember. My 8 and 1/2 melon WON’T FIT in most hats marked “XL.” So most of my caps are slit down the back and held together with a “twisto” from a loaf of bread!

  50. The Flying Pig says:

    Good pass by Tanny but excellent adjustment by Cameron on that catch

    I like that play

    • Tim Knight says:

      It’s fuckin football!!!! Was the catch by Clark from Montana scripted? I mean what are we looking for anymore? LOL

    • getterdone says:

      A QB throws to a spot, then his receiver being the only one knowing where its going will track it, and make the last sec adjustment to throw off the defender & haul in the ball.

    ESPN:
    Lions RE Ziggy Ansah is targeting double-digit sacks.
    One of the top 4-3 ends, Ansah had 7.5 sacks and a league-high 20 QB hits last season. He’s primed to take a step forward this year, but will see more double teams with the losses of Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. Ansah is a strong bet to top the 64 percent of snaps he played in 2014.
    ______________________________
    I think his numbers will fall instead of get better. The Lions replaced Suh with 31 Haloti Ngata who hasn’t played a full season the past 3 years, and next to Ziggy is undrafted Tyrunn Walker that the Saints cut lose.
