Live blogging action today during the game

Lots of things to get to today but because I only care about how many hits this blog gets, as some of you have accused, I have to tell you that there will be a fun live blogging session during the game against Baltimore today.

I picked the Dolphins to win today which obviously means there is no hope for them because I also picked them to go 10-6 this year. Yeesh.

Anyway, to clean out the notepad:

I wrote a column in the Herald today saying the Dolphins will have approximately $25 million in cap room this offseason to spend on free agency and other matters. Yes, some of that will go to the draft, but that doesn't change the fact the Dolphins will be in the middle of the pack among teams that have the most cap room.

The No. 1 guy to watch out for in free agency? Indy safety Bob Sanders who can help BOTH the run and pass defense and currently plays for a team that is salary cap poor and may not be able to retain him.

Will the Dolphins have to pay more for their free agents than most teams? Of course. Nobody wants to join a struggling team unless it is made worth their while. But that doesn't mean players won't want to play here. South Florida and the Dolphins still have lots going for them.

One free agent I didn't mention that I should have is receiver Andre' Davis of Houston. He was on the street after being waived by Cleveland when Andre Johnson got hurt. A 2002 second round pick of the Browns, Davis went to Houston and showed some great ability. He became their deep threat and top receiver while Johnson was down.

He is a speed receiver and I think he would make an excellent addition as a mid-priced No. 2 receiver that brings experience, blazing speed, and gives Miami a chance to push Derek Hagan further back on the depth chart instead of asking the youngster to be a No. 2 receiver behind Ted Ginn Jr.

[Here is the link to the column that includes other nuggets: http://www.miamiherald.com/1190/story/346681.html]

About the sale of the team: Please do not believe everything Wayne Huizenga and the involved parties have to say. I have been a journalist for a quarter century and I've been lied to a lot. Some of the biggest fibs were told me by Dolphins owners when they were involved in sales.

After his father died I asked Tim Robbie, point blank, does the estate tax issue force you to consider selling? "No, not at all. We will continue to own the Dolphins." Within months, Wayne Huizenga had gone from being a 15 percent owner to owning the whole franchise.

When The Herald first got wind of Huizenga possibly selling the team, we contacted Stephen Ross to confirm his interest. He acted like he never heard of Wayne Huizenga, he said he hadn't spoken to Huizenga, and that anyway, he wasn't interested in buying.

Then we learned Ross met with Huizenga last weekend about purchasing the team.

And Huizenga's Saturday statement that he is not "actively" trying to sell the Dolphins? Then what is his definition of "actively" when he met with potential buyers the weekend before?

Anyway, I'll have a inactives update for you before the game. Then you can meet me in the comments sections for the live blog that will improve my hits and make me rich enough to buy the Dolphins -- assuming Huizenga can finance $1 Billion with equal lifetime installments of $100 per month.

I don't understand why the Dolphins don't seem to stretch the defense with 9 routes --deep routes -- to at least loosen up the D.

It doesn't matter that they don't complete them. But they don't even run them.

As to Yeremiah Bell, he's supposed to start jogging late next month. I would not write him off under any circumstances, but it doesn't make sense to count on him as the answer. If he's healthy great, you have an extra guy. If not, no harm done.

McGahee caught for a loss running right, but then turned back the other way for a 2 yard gain.

That shows you how slow the Miami defense has become that a 230 pound back can reverse field on gain yardage.

Back to my point about the Dolphins not going deep. The ravens tried it on first down this drive. it didn't work, but at least they planted the seed that they might try it.

The Dolphins offense doesn't even try it. At least not enough. It's like hoping to win the lottery without buying tickets. Ain't happening.

Regarding Mcfadden...maybe, not sure. I think I would prefer that we try to trade down..stay in top 5, get a 2nd or package and go for one of the Longs - Chris out of VA or Jake out of MI. Not sure if we would have someone ready to move up to #1

JT coming in the game as a TE. He always gets the ball in practice.

The injuries have got to be addressed - that is the strength and conditioning coach. He has to be tops of the list to go.

booker is more explosive - he has a short stride compared to the long stride of ginn. ginn may be fast on the straight line but now juking in small spaces

enough with the mcfadden crap - running back is not a need at this time. Our receivers, db's, dline are crap, oline is in need of some depth and thomas is old.

trade down get an xtra 2nd round pick, that will give us 3 in the second round

1st round - Colt Brennan
2nd round (first pick) - receiver
2nd round (second pick) - receiver
2nd round (third pick) - oline
rest of draft - defense

free agent signings address defensive needs - with vetran signings defense will keep us in ball games while very young offensive matures. Running backs (ronnie if back intime and Ricky can carry load while either Beck or Brennan developes - probably Brennan.

there you go that is the plan to be playoff bound in 2 years

Feely's kickoffs have put us in bad field position all year long.
Should we get rid of him too?

Mando I bet he goes between 15 and 20.
(if he has a good game against Georgia)

So many 1st round 1st pick qbs have been busts. Forget it. This team doesn't have the luxury to pick the best player, they need picks. The need to trade down and stack up and compete.

2:16 PM  
Blogger Armando Salguero said...

Trade down is a solid idea, but usually it doesn't happen. Very hard to do.

2:17 PM

And now the defense is imploding and granting Baltimore cheap first downs so they can get a field goal before the half.

Agreed finfan. Early Bucs had the no.1 and took the sexy, sell tickets, make dumb armchair Qbs happy, pick. VINNNNNNNYY T! They had some guy named Steve Young, and desperately needed an O-line. They could have had a million picks for that one, but nnnoooo they get VINNY! And of course he has to run for his life just as Young did. you say a QB is different? I remember Hershel being 'unstoppable', and all those picks he brought to the Cowboys won a ton! Any decent RB and QB can look great behind a great o-line.

They say Jerry Jones is drooling for Mcfadden, he may trade down.

I think we should draft defense. Try pick up Sanders maybe on the free agent market

I cannot believe how weakminded this team is.

The offense can never get that extra yard to get first downs and extend drives. Also doesn't score TDS.

And when the get a FG, the defense will be certain to give those points back ... and more. Crap.
