The Wedge Scouting Report: Alex Collins, RB

Well Earth lives another day

Seems like some other planet outweighed Earth on the intergalactic planetary destiny scale.  Earth is so luck.  5th time this year.  Chances are Earth will survive through at least the draft.

Which is good because taking a trip to Earth is such a long trip and Momma Wedge worries about me away from home…


Momma Wedge

I don’t want to worry Momma Wedge.  A worried Momma can do some irrational things.

Which brings me to Arkansas running back Alex Collins.


If Alex Collins Mom had her way we would’t saying “Arkansas” running back.

You see Alex Collins is a local product. He went to South Plantation High School, not too far from the Dolphins Davie Facility.

The highly touted high school running back, unfortunately didn’t get calls from college football powerhouses like Miami, Florida or Florida State.

Instead Arkansas sent a letter of intent to Alex Collins.  And he was going to sign it…but….his Momma took the letter of intent and ran away with it.  Momma Collins didn’t want her little baby going so fa away.

NCAA Football: Liberty Bowl-Kansas State vs Arkansas

Well it was an easy fix for Arkansas.  They just sent another letter of intent to Alex Collins father by fax.

And Alex Collins went to Arkansas and gained over 3800 yards from scrimmage in three years.  And Momma Collins cried on every yard.

Collins did a little bit of everything for Arkansas.  He ran the ball, he caught some passes, he blocked and he even returned kicks and punts.


No matter what he does, Collins has a real nose for the end zone scoring 36 TDs while at Arkansas.

He a fun runner to watch.  In High School he ran track for South Plantation and you can see that speed on the field.  Collins accelerate fast to the hole.

And Collins runs hungry.  He fights for extra yards on every play.  He’s a very physical runner punishing defenders.


But what really catches my eye with Collins is his balance.

He runs with incredible balance.  He’s not easy to bring down because of it.

Sometimes he’s not easy to catch because of that balance. He changes direction with ease while the defenders try to change position and end up having to chase him.

Kind of reminds me a of certain scale.  If Alex Collins was an Alien Weapon of Destruction, he would be a an Intergalactic Planetary Galactic Scale.


 So let’s bring Alex Collins back to Miami….for his Momma!

    Steve, I wouldn’t care if we brought in Richardson to compete.

  2. Randy says:

    Please, Tim’s bitching is all about getting people to stop bitching because he doesn’t like it. He does it repetitively…just like he complains about others doing something repetitively. Same thing.

    • getterdone says:

      Dog eat dog on a Phins blog…can’t we all just hit a bong?

    • Tim Knight says:

      I was never referring to you and I made that pretty clear when I mentioned a specific blogger (Lou) who has been ranting on Tannehill over and over on both blogs saying the same thing over and over. I never told him or anyone to stop doing it, I asked him why so many times when nothing new was being said, just repeated.

      “Tim Knight says:
      April 4, 2016 at 12:25 pm

      I see the Tannehill bashing session is still ongoing with nothing more than an abundance of opinions.

      Lou, I thought you said you were done yesterday and wanted to focus on the draft? I guess you’re still interested in filling up both blogs with the same subject matter.”

      Nobody discusses any other player like this adnauseam. I don’t care if anyone doesn’t like RT or not, but does it really have to be said so many times? I was just asking, didn’t think it would piss you off so much. I’ll refrain from getting under your skin with all my bitching about things that bother me. SMH

  3. Randy says:

    Go back and read my post. I didn’t say Tim was “talking shit”. I said he’s been talking about the same shit forever…just like the rest of us do. Huge difference. But, he is often the one complaining about others being repetitive. If you can’t comprehend what I say, maybe you shouldn’t respond to it.

  4. Randy says:

    As usual, people are assuming I’m all angry because of my post. I’m not. I simply wanted to point out that we ALL talk about the same crap over and over again. For Tim or anybody to act like that isn’t how things work around here or that we don’t all do it is ridiculous. We all do it all the time. We just all tend to “like” the conversation when we agree with it…and can get annoyed with it when we don’t. I don’t see how that’s all that controversial. Lol

  5. Mike E. says:


    You calling Rob FFR is like a mom calling their son/daughter and adding their middle name! lol

    Chill out, typical blog nonsense. We love ya man!

  6. Randy says:

    I didn’t realize calling you a blind homer was name calling. I thought you owned that! Lol
    Either way, I apologize. As I’ve said before, I find your unwarranted optimism refreshing and a nice counterbalance to my pessimism…even if it does irritate from time to time!

  7. finfanrob says:

    Randy says:
    April 4, 2016 at 9:02 pm

    ‘ If you can’t comprehend what I say, maybe you shouldn’t respond to it.’

    lmfao. like i said blog irony. you completely missed what tim was saying yet responded to it and then tell me if i cant comprehend what you say not to respond to it.

    ok here randy, let me make this easy for you. the only reason tanny didnt throw for 6000 yards and 48 td is cause the o line sucks. the o line would have given up 103 sacks if it wasnt for tanny’s QUICK feet.

    oh yeah and bucket living is for losers

  8. Randy says:

    Like I said, I’m not upset, but ffr misrepresented what I said to Tim. I didn’t say he was talking shit. I just wanted to clarify.

  9. getterdone says:

    I like a good fracas.

    Go Royals!

  10. Mike E. says:

    Fuck the Royals! LET’S GO METS!!!!

  11. finfanrob says:

    You’ve been talking about the same shit for a decade

    you are right. i guess talking shit and talking the same shit for a decade are two different things. i stand corrected no way whats so ever did you say tim was talking shit. you said the same shit for a decade way way different

  12. getterdone says:

    Time for some hoops.
    Go Tarheels.

  13. Randy says:

    I assumed you were just being a pot stirrer as usual, but I didn’t want Tim thinking I told him he was talking shit. Those were your words, not mine, and I just wanted to clarify.
    And don’t kick bucket life until you’ve tried it, Winner!

  14. finfanrob says:


    why are you apologizing. i really dont get why all you guys insist on apologizing. i get it if one goes over the top and loses it and attacks some one personally and out of line. but come on, just a bunch of old fucks who think they know more about football then the other guy and just having a bunch of fun busting balls about it. you didnt hurt tim or anyone there isnt a need to apologize for just having fun and expressing your opinion.

    man if busting balls was taken serious mike e would of had me killed by now about skipping his articles

  15. Randy says:

    Yes, big difference…and that’s why I also said we’ve ALL been doing it. All includes me too.

  16. Mike E. says:


    You’ll have another one to skip tomorrow morning

  17. getterdone says:

    Tim takes a sword as the blog stands back & watches…..

  18. finfanrob says:

    randy just called me a spoon. mother f’er. i mean a spoon. come on you bucket dwelling sister prostitute buying fuctard……a spoon. i am more then just utensil to stir a pot. at least make me a wisk so at least i can beat things

  19. Randy says:

    Sorry, but I can only blog now and then during the day, so I gotta jump in where I can. I simply can’t blog all day, so my comments probably seem disjointed. And again, I wasn’t pissed off…not even remotely. It was more about saying we all talk about shit over and over, and it can get irritating for all of us depending on how we feel about the validity of the discussion.
    And frankly…I’m already getting irritated with this repetitive conversation! Lol

  20. finfanrob says:

    Mike E. says:
    April 4, 2016 at 9:27 pm


    You’ll have another one to skip tomorrow morning

    thanks for telling me mike. i do really appreciate it. at least it gives me the night to make sure and rest my fingers so they will be fresh to just scroll away tomorrow

  21. Mike E. says:

    LOL @ Rob

  22. Tim Knight says:

    Again there is a different between opinions and posting something over and over.

    If you walked out of your house each morning and once again all the trees on your street had flyers posted on them and stuck under your windshield wipers saying “Go Trump!” or “Just say no to Trump”, wouldn’t you be like okay we get it, enough is enough, or are reactions like that not expected?

    I didn’t call for Lou’s posts to be taken down or anything, I asked him about it.

  23. finfanrob says:


    i dont think it is the amount of posting about it i think it is more the amount of posting an opinion and saying it is fact that is the annoying part. it is fine to say something over and over it is the posting it like fact. like OD constantly saying ross is the worse owner ever. that is opinion not a fact but to constantly say it like fact just gets old. at least just state if is ones opinion

  24. Randy says:

    The point is that we do that all the time. It’s only when it’s about Tannehill that it seems to irritate people. Am I missing something here? Do we not all have one repetitive conversation after another around here? Lol

    • Tim Knight says:

      I do not not do what I’m referring to. I don’t post about how a guy is great or sucks over and over, that’s not what I do here. It’s very different. Do you know the difference between conversation, or making a point and spam, not the kind you eat? LOL

  25. finfanrob says:

    i just wish for two things.

    one the fins to win a SB

    second to understand the rules of basketball.

    i am pretty sure both are impossible i think i have a better chance of understanding women

  26. Randy says:

    Shut the hell up. Spoons don’t talk. Besides, I don’t know about you, but I never used a spoon to stir my pot. Must be nice to be rich!

  27. wyoming85 says:

  28. finfanrob says:


    i know you addressed it to tim, i mean only about tanny but i am telling you no. like i said it gets old OD and his rants about ross. there are several things like that on here. it is just to some if anybody says they dont want to talk about tanny or tired of hearing the ones that dislike him get all uppty and say someone is defending him

  29. finfanrob says:


    i dont stir my pot. what the f is wrong with you. us 1%er sofa living fuckers hire people to stir our pots.

  30. Randy says:

    Ok, if that’s what you think. So be it. No worries.

  31. wyoming85 says:

    Woman are easy!
    You just say yes Ma’am!

  32. finfanrob says:


    and i will add this to the defending discussion. i have over and over and over made fun of OD’s comments about ross being the worst owner in sports. i have joked about it every time he does it but no one comes out and says oh you are just a ross defender. but dare i make fun of one who is constantly bashing tanny and i get it from all i am just a tanny supporter. even when my opinion about this team and ever aspect of it has been clearly stated.

    what i am saying is i am basically right and you are not. so not shut up before i put a lid on your bucket

  33. finfanrob says:

    wyoming85 says:
    April 4, 2016 at 9:46 pm

    Woman are easy!
    You just say yes Ma’am!

    come on, i didnt say what is the answer when she hits you with the leather belt and ask if you want another one. i said i want to understand the mind that says ‘look i bought new shoes’ and you respond, but dont you already have 18 pairs of black shoes and she says, yes but none of them are this color black

  34. Tim Knight says:

    One last time on this.

    a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

    the action of repeating something that has already been said or written.

    But not over time weeks, months, years or decades, but repeatedly. Okay you (not meaning you) just posted that. Okay you just posted it again. Wow you just posted that 5 minutes ago twice. There is a difference. Not sure how that’s difficult to see.

    It’s not about being irked by the opinion. Everyone has different opinions. Just look at musical tastes. That’s a perfect example of how we see things different at times. That’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about someone blasting “Free Bird” every morning while living in adjacent apartments. LOL

  35. uwantwat says:

    Hey Tim would you like some of my popcorn? I’m a caring,sharing old fuck.

  36. Randy says:

    Tim hates “Free Bird”! You all saw it. Tim hates America. Lol

    • Tim Knight says:

      I purposely picked a song most people like at least a little just so I wouldn’t choose a song I don’t like and get this exact reply from you. LOL

  37. finfanrob says:


    we all know you hate anything birds. we have heard your exploits of chopping down trees.

    but what the hell does that have to do with one over and over and over sating their opinion

    • Tim Knight says:

      Telling me you like Free Bird is one thing, telling me repeatedly and playing it over and over is another. I don’t get how that’s not clear. But I’m done with it.

      My wife chopped down a bunch of small trees one day while I was at work that grew flowers and were okay looking, but she wanted to grow something else there. don’t worry no animals were harmed, nothing lived in therm. 🙂

  38. uwantwat says:

    Tim…of course.

  39. finfanrob says:

    lmao @ this place.

    ok if randy busting on tim for hating america then me for hating birds just doesnt prove that it is all in good fun i dont know how else to explain it.

  40. uwantwat says:

    How old was Don Shula when he first became a HC?

  41. finfanrob says:


    the only time tim eats popcorn is when he is watching on his porch during the summer after he chopped down the trees the squirrels live in. he just sits and eats the popcorn while he watches them freeze to death and he laughs and laughs and laughs

    • Tim Knight says:

      uwant, the reality is no squirrels lived in the trees that got chopped down. The big trees were just trimmed so we could actually get sunlight. I’ve now watch many little squirrels be born and gtow up big and strong eating our vegetables. We’re a compassionate people. LOL

  42. uwantwat says:

    Thanks for that Rob. It means Tim is a bad man. Poor little squirrels.

  43. finfanrob says:

    uwantwat says:
    April 4, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    How old was Don Shula when he first became a HC?
    wtf???? what the hell is wrong with you? are you serious? dont you know?


  44. Tim Knight says:

    Right now, who do we pick at #13 if you had to choose in 5 seconds? I don’t expect a realistic answer from FFR. LOL

  45. finfanrob says:


    dont fall for that crap from tim. the only reason they allowed the little squirrels be born and grow is so he can shoot them and make his famous squirrel soup.

  46. uwantwat says:

    Interesting about the Don. OK, I will go out on a limb and state with Gase we might have just found our new Shula. I listen to his opening PC and thought this bloke has it. Philben never inspired me like that. Honestly, I could not understand a single word Sparano said.

  47. Randy says:

    How’d you know I was gonna say that? I didn’t even know I was gonna say that. I was just gonna say “Tannehill sucks”, but I didn’t wanna be repetitive. Lol

  48. finfanrob says:

    Tim Knight says:
    April 4, 2016 at 10:21 pm

    Right now, who do we pick at #13 if you had to choose in 5 seconds? I don’t expect a realistic answer from FFR. LOL

    LMFAO and FU.

  49. Randy says:

    Hell yeah I’ll shoot and eat any damn squirrel I find in my trees. But, now that Tim tells us that squirrels don’t live in trees I’m gonna have to look in the bushes. I do so hate beating the bushes.

    • Tim Knight says:

      LOL, not short trees. They like to get up high around here. 25 feet minimum if it’s a hollowed out tree, but mostly 30+.

  50. Tim Knight says:

    I’m looking forward to what this team is going to look like because it’s going to be quite different in both coaching and personnel. I have no idea what it will look like, I hope good, and I have know idea who we’ll draft. In year’s past I could guess 3-4, maybe even 2-3 for our 1st pick. This year I got nothing!

  51. uwantwat says:

    Some young fuck we have never heard of.

  52. uwantwat says:

    Randy….when I was a teen many years ago and were actually allowed to own guns, I used to go and stay at a friend’s parents cabin at Mannum on the River Murray. Sad to say my shooting prowess was extremely poor. I missed every damn rabbit and squirrel I shot at. I guess this made me a lesser man in some way. It hurts when one of my Bro-in-laws was state champion in skeet shooting. I couldn’t hit those either. Wish I knew how to make emoticons on here.

  53. finfanrob says:


    that is you problem. you are always beating the bushes. if you will just take your time and slowly part the bushes you will find it just waiting there for you so slowly take and get it ready for your pallet

  54. Randy says:

    My dad, uncles and brothers used to go squirrel hunting all the time. They’re tough to shoot…very skittish, but we all grew up shooting. Not many got away. Thankfully the little bastards procreate like..well…rabbits. Lol

  55. Tim Knight says:

    Randy, no pick?

  56. uwantwat says:

    What made it worse Randy I lived in the country and just about all of my mates were bloody good shots. They used to hit my share. Damn embarrassing it was. We compromised I did the driving and they did the shooting. LOL

  57. uwantwat says:

    Tim…tell me who has MM13 being raving on about this year on the other blog? We all know we will not be taking that player.

  58. Randy says:

    This draft has me stumped. My knee jerk reaction was whoever the highest rated CB was left on their board. I just have no idea what the hell they’re gonna do.

  59. uwantwat says:


  60. Randy says:

    Did they make you clean them? We used to make the guy who shot the fewest clean them. Or, more likely, they made whoever was youngest…often me…clean the damn rodents. Lol

  61. uwantwat says:

    Randy…nope we all shared in that job. They tried that on me and I threaten to take off and leave stranded when they got out to collect them. Actually, that was something I was pretty good at. LOL
    Reminds me of my one of my mates, the first time he tried to clean one he got some blood and guts on his hands and he proceeded to chunder all over the place. Good memories!

  62. Tim Knight says:

    Really NCAABB Championship game. The one announcer is obviously biased for NCU.

  63. uwantwat says:

    Tim….and that is nothing new?

  64. Randy says:

    Nicely played. My mom used to actually fry their brains and eat them like popcorn shrimp. Totally gross, but it added another dimension to skinning the damn things when you had to crack their skulls open and pluck out the brains like cracking a walnut. Lol

  65. Tim Knight says:

    Goodnight folks.

  66. uwantwat says:

    LOL…Yuck I agree with being gross. My Mum loved me at times cuz I used to fish at least twice a month, trap rabbits, as well as these trips to Mannum. Kept the freezer well stocked. Sad her man was such a loathsome prick. Step father BTW. We never really got on.

  67. uwantwat says:

    Night folks I have to go out again.

  68. olddolphan says:

    I’ve watched EVERY MARCH MADNESS CHAMPIONSHIP GAME since Texas Western defeated a heavily favored Kentucky team in 1966 AND THIS WAS THE BEST FINISH I’VE EVER SEEN!!!–Hats off to Villanova’s Kris Jenkins for a clutch 3-pointer that will go down in the annals of basketball history!! –And a tip of the hat to the rally by North Carolina when they looked totally beaten down 67-57 with about 3 minutes or so left in the game. I’ve always felt that March Madness was one of my top 3 or 4 sporting events of the year. And this game did nothing to change that. Nova had to beat Miami, Kansas, Oklahoma and North Carolina to win the title during their last 4 games. WHAT a performance!!–SOOOO-O-O glad I stayed up WAY past my bedtime!! – – IT was WORTH IT!
