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!

  12. Ken says:

    Now have to do enforced toast to #2

  13. BoulderPhinfan says:

    From Omar. He’s starting to get it

    5. QB Ryan Tannehill: He’s improved. There’s no doubt about it. That doesn’t necessarily mean he’s ready to lead this team to playoffs, but the guy is better. Keep an eye on him tonight. He’s more accurate, he’s throwing with both touch and purpose, and he’s making good decisions. He has two INTs so far in training camp. One was a poor throw, the other was the result of a tipped pass that wasn’t poorly thrown. That’s pretty good. His deep ball has a bit more finesse and he’s shown a better ability to thrown into tight windows, especially in the red zone. Tannehill is becoming (dare I say it?) fun to watch.

    Dolphins have to figure out how much of Billy Turner having a horrible time vs. Ndamukong Suh is that Suh great and how much Turner bad.
    ____________________________________
    Suh is going to make this defense Rock like a Hurricane!

  31. Tim Knight says:

    I wonder what everyone would be saying if Billy Turner, a 3rd rd pick out of small school was knocking the $114M man in Suh (a former #2 2010 pick and 1st team all-pro and pro bowler the last 4 years) all day. Put it in perspective. 🙂

    It’s like using a doughnut in baseball. You use that heavy weight to speed up the process when it’s time to hit.

  32. getterdone says:

    Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley
    Most impressive player tonight: Ndamukong Suh. Second-most impressive: LaMichael James.

  39. Tim Knight says:

    Boulder, these reports from the media forget that all of this is practice, not games. Back in the day we never got this intel until Dolphins Digest got to you the week after and it wasn’t this deep. LOL

    With a 41-yard FG by Caleb Sturgis the Dolphins take a 9-0 lead over the Dolphins.

    It’s funny with practice. One good play means great for one guy and bad for the other. That’s basically how it works, competition and work to get better.

  47. getterdone says:

  49. getterdone says:

    • Tim Knight says:

      The Miami media are hounds. I learned that a long time ago. Their ignorance about TC and scrimmages etc. is foolish. Let’s always find the negative and forget the positives for the other side. It baffles me that they still don’t get it. QB ratings in TC and a scrimmage within the team, really? It’s time for the headless children. LOL

    I can’t wait till the first preseason game. I may have to pay the game pass fee.

  65. New Age says:

    Really rough night for Tannehill but it seems like half the team is injured or only randomly plays. Time to get Mathis and work out next year’s money…next year.

  66. New Age says:

    Really rough night for Tanny but that OL is killer bad right now. It doesn’t help that two of his primary WRs are also not playing. Time to just pay the piper and worry about next year…next year.

  67. New Age says:

    Rough night for Tanny but two of his WRs aren’t playing, the OL is the usual mishmash for this time of year and our D is legit. At the same time, it’s time to pay the piper and get Mathis in here. Tanny plays much better when he’s not on his back 😉

    http://espn.go.com/page2/s/list/distractions/031022.html
    3. Irving Fryar’s wife slashes his hand before AFC title game
    Four days before the Pats faced the Dolphins in the 1986 AFC Championship Game in Miami, Irving Fryar, a wide receiver and the best punt returner in the NFL, cut two fingers and had his hand put in a cast. Pats GM Patrick Sullivan said it was a freak accident: “This morning, he was putting a kitchen knife back in the drawer … It slipped and cut his hand.”

    Despite the fact that this explanation defied logic, newspapers reported it without comment.

    Fryar, awho caught 39 passes and scored 10 TDs during the regular season, missed the Dolphins game but did play in the Super Bowl, scoring the Pats’ lone TD.

    The Boston Globe reported before the Super Bowl that the knife cut, which required six stitches, came during a fight between Fryar and his wife, Jacqueline. He knocked her down, the Globe reported, and she got up and slashed his hand. Both went to the hospital.

    Fryar ended up making a remarkable turnaround in his life and enjoyed 17 years in the NFL. He retired in 2000 after 17 seasons, and is the sixth-leading receiver league history with 851 career receptions.

    If I’m correct he was the one who Nebraska choose to throw to on 4th down in Miami Hurricanes 1st National championship in end zone.

    George Allen imposes curfew before Super Bowl VII
    Sometimes the greatest distraction can be having no distractions at all, especially during the pressure-packed week preceding the Super Bowl. One example of this: Redskins head coach George Allen’s strictures before Super Bowl VII. Redskin Roosevelt Taylor went so far as to say that Allen’s curfew was the reason the Redskins lost.

    “He screwed up the whole damned week,” Taylor said. “We got there being confined by curfew one night a week during the season. We get out there, and there’s curfew every night. We had to eat every meal together, you went to practice together, to the press conferences together. George really hated Los Angeles. He got that from George Halas. Halas used to call L.A. the ‘sex-pool’ of America. George believed it too.

    “So the whole week became a boring thing. Even though we worked hard, the boredom carried over to the game. … It sure didn’t help us.”

    Congratulations to our rookies who received their well deserved colored sports bras at tonight’s scrimmage.

  87. Mike E. says:

    Man, those Mets are exciting! Last nights game with the Rays was a real nail biter, a very good game overall. Each team answered the others big blow, until the Mets finally had the last answer. All this while the Nationals were cruising with 4-1 lead in the 8th inning. Well, CarGo hits a grand slam, and the Nats lose 5-4, while the Mets come back and win 4-3, and now have a 2.5 game lead. This night could be the turning point of the season for both teams.

  88. wyoming85 says:

    Veteran cornerback Brice McCain has been making a lot of noise in training camp, but rookie cornerback Bobby McCain is also coming on strong.

    Bobby McCain made a great play in the corner end zone to stay in bounds and intercept a Tannehill pass.

    “I saw the play coming, I saw the split, I saw the leverage — things coaches have been teaching me all camp,” he said. “I just reacted on the ball and made the play.”

    Mike,
    That Mets game was one of the most exciting I’ve seen in a while. I’m a bit nervous about their relief pitching, but we’ll see what happens.

    • Mike E. says:

      Guys are gonna get beat sometimes, they just need to be able to bounce back. Look at the Nats reliever giving up a grand salami. I agree they’ve been shaky, and we definitely have a sure thing in any phase of our bullpen. It’s going to be on the starters in a playoff series to go as deep as they can.

    Dolphins rookie defensive back Tony Lippett flashed in the scrimmage. He nearly had two interceptions, one against Matt Moore and one against McCleod Bethel-Thompson. Lippett is trying to make the conversion from a college wide receiver to defensive back in the NFL.

    Wyo

    Cameron can be HUGE for us if he stays healthy. He’s the type of TE I’ve been asking for for years.

    #Dolphins rookie S Ced Thompson with a nice stick to force a fumble. Thompson has made a couple nice plays tonight.

  96. Mike E. says:

    Thanks for that info Wyo – Cedric Thompson is another one of my favorites. Like that kids story and attitude.

  97. wyoming85 says:

    The Sky is falling!

    Ryan Tannehill has shown so much improvement this camp. He is more consistent, he’s stepping up as a leader, and he’s connecting on more deep balls. I think he’s finally ready to challenge to become a tier one QB.

  98. uwantwat says:

    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.

  99. 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.

  100. wyoming85 says:

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
    Look what I found!

  101. uwantwat says:

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

  102. 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.

  103. 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.

  104. 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

  105. 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?

  107. 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.

  108. Tim Knight says:

    Happy Birthday, Rock!

  109. 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.

    Happy birthday. Rock

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

  112. Mike E. says:

    Happy Birthday Rock! Many more happy ones to follow!

  113. 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

  114. 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?

    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 😀

    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.

  117. 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

  118. 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.

  119. 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

  121. 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.

  122. 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.

    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!

      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.
