Thomas and Taylor are awesome. Too bad it's another wasted season for those two.

Not surprised at all those were the only two. Good for them, I hope they enjoy Hawaii.

I know it is off topic but is there any chance we are going to see Cleo Lemon get significant playing time the last few weeks and what are your thoughts on him?

Nice effort on this post, Salgue. Quite the information bonanza. That's why all three of your blog readers come here: to get the scoop on something they would never learn from, say, reading *every wire service* on the web.

Here are some (related) ideas for future posts:

--Miami lost to Buffalo lost week.

--They have a verbose coach named Nick Saban.

--There is a representation of an aquatic mammal on their helmets.

Discuss, readers!

How about this for a blog topic: Denver's Al Wilson is the starter at middle linebacker over Zack. They played in the same number of games, but Zack has about 50 more tackles, more sacks, more interceptions, more forced fumbles and more passes defensed. That's real stupid.

Also, Denver's John Lynch is on the team despite not making an interception or sack all season. What an over-rated defense.

here are some other Pro Bowl candidates

Recivers that drop 6 of 11 passes per game:
AFC Chris Chambers
NFC Terrel Owens

QBs that like to throw to the other team:
AFC Joey Harrington
*Jake plummer
NFC Mark Brunell

Kickers that prefer wide right:
AFC Olindo Mare
NFC Mike Vanderjacht
Congrts to 2 players who "bri=ought the A Game EVERY week

Next year maybe we can see some young players get some cedit like this like Matt (Party Boy)Roth, Channing Crowder, Yeramiah Bell.

As for Zach not starting it is because we suck as a team. It is rare someone from a losing team starts like JT is. That is also why he won't even be considered for MVP even though it is easier to compile stats if the whole team is good not just 1 or 2 guys.

All very interesting. Shouldn't we turn our attention to something more important, like who's going to be the next Miss America, or what Jolie-Pitt will adopt next, or which vegetable Jeb Bush will try to save next, or how can we comfort Katherine Harris after her tragic repudiation?

No doubt Taylor and Thomas deserve the recognition. It's like you said Dude; too bad it's another wasted season. I would just hope they can retire on a winning note, a SB, unlike Dan who too was so deserving of such honors.

Buffalo idiot.. go suck on some cow pies idiot. Buffalo fans probablykicked you off their site because the doctor forgot to slap and shoot you and your mother for you being born. If you do not like us... stay out of our blog!

damn stupid buffalo fan... you should be worrying out your team that seems to be grazing out in the pasture. get off our blog and pester the other idiots at buffalo wading and rolling in the mud like the filthy swine you are.

we are not on your fan sites bothering you stay the fuck out you idiot.

hey armando i have some better ideas for posts:

-- do Dolphins play football?

-- what great expectation can we have from good ole Saban next year?

-- did we win yet?

-- are my shoes tied right?

-- which way is the end zone?

-- my blind folds are too tight!

-- have they stopped canning dolphins with tuna, if not why haven't i found any yet?

-- we have moved up from the pee wee league.

... and my favorite...

-- i finally realized i was not dreaming, but living the nightmare that we totally suck!

It's good to see Taylor and Thomas in the Pro Bowl. It's a shame to see someone like Merriman though. The league is sending a message that you might as well try and cheat because if you do get caught you can still get credit for what you've done. As much as I hate T.O. why does he get a week's worth of outrage for sleeping in practice while Merriman gets the pro bowl for steroids and a 4 game suspension? I just don't get it...

Hey Mike, when did it become an issue with Shawne Merriman playing in the Pro Bowl? When he got seleted OR when Poor Poor Jason Taylor was threatened that Merriman could possbly win the Defensive POY. And quit repeating what Jason "WAAH" had said.
(Sarcastic Manner)- I hope Jason Taylor wins the award now, but just imagine how stupid he's going to look.
