    Anyone know anything about scouts.com? How reputable is it?

    Huh. I don't know but hat site also claims that Grigsby was let go which is the first I heard of that.

    That would be a huge blow to an offensive line that lacks major depth.

    I hope it's BS. Never heard of scouts.com, nothing on KFFL even about the guy we supposedly signed.

    Cramer makes sense. He's a FB/TE. I dont think they would cut their starter, though.

    I doubt Donald Thomas is going to play through an injury for the rest of a game and go on IR though.

    Until this is confirmed by a reputable source, I'd put all of it into the "rumor" category.

    If the thing about Grigsby is true, it's a new record for shortest Fan Club tenure on the team.

    I read today that Thomas says its just a sprain and he expects to play this week.. I will try and find the link


    Found it

    http://www.palmbeachpost.com/blogs/...008/09/08/donald_thomas_is_on_crutches_a.htmlThomas, the rookie sixth-rounder out of UConn, said he twisted his ankle in the second quarter Sunday against the Jets and is “just taking precautions.” He said he hopes to practice Wednesday when the Dolphins return to the field, and when asked if he would play Sunday, said, “Yeah, hopefully.”

    That's funny because every sports update on local radio says Thomas was wearing a boot today but HE said he was expecting to practice on Wednesday, which is the next team practice.

    Also nothing has been mentioned about Boomer...

    I wouldn't look much into it... Wasn't Beck suppose to be cut according to some radio station?

    Good point. Considering thomas finished the game on the ankle and said he expects to practice wednesday, I doubt the legitimacy of the report.

    Yup, never saw him limping, slow to get up, or come out for a play either. I would challenge anyone to find the spot in the game where he sprained the ankle. We all saw Carey go down and have to leave for one play. But for Donald there was never a clue he sprained it that I could see.

    Some of these sites (Rotoworld, Scouts.com, Profootballtalk) just simply throw as much **** at the wall as they can, hoping they can say "see, we were right so that makes us reputable).

    Tony did not even mention his injury in the presser. I listened to someone today (Kim Bokamper?) who said he was in a boot as a precaution and would be practicing Wednesday.

    None of the local hacks have mentioned ANYTHING about this (other then picking up on the rumour) and I don't think we'd be ****ing around with fullbacks today if we had lost our starting guard for the season.

    It's bogus IMO.

    Donald said yesterday that it was a simple twisted ankle. Didn't affect him much on the field. Played right through it. The boot was just to play it safe. Looks worse than it is. He also said no MRI would be done.

    Scout.com is a major sports outlet. They run fan sites from College to the NFL in most sports. They run a huge drafting and scouting service. The NFL channel has a news segment with them. I pay for their service and they tend to be correct most of the time.

    I'm not saying i want to believe it but they are not like PFT.

    I was sorta hoping we'd look at this guy regardless of Thomas's injury. I remember him at Alabama at left guard, he and LT Wesley Britt formed a pretty good tandem in the run game. I recall, his combine performance was pretty good also.

    When asked about the scout.com report Thomas said that was, "definitely an exaggeration,'' and he was having it evaluated today.

    "It won't be too bad,'' Thomas said. "I'm still the same as yesterday. I'm waiting to see and hoping I'll be out there practicing tomorrow and playing on Sunday.FB Grigsby cut according to report -- South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com

    Scout.com is indeed a reputable organization. Absolutely.

    They simply got this one wrong. Hey, it happens to all of them. Nobody's perfect. And in the process they scooped everybody on both the Evans an Cramer news.

    As for the signing of Evans, I think that points more towards Thomas not playing this week (or perhaps longer), but not being out of the season. Then again, we still need to see who the Phins are going to cut to make room for Evans.

    Not a bad policy.

    Just know that the Dolphins still haven't announced the terms of the Jason Taylor trade. :lol:
