    I feel like I should be mad that we are still paying him and that he should play if we are, but our oline has been so much better the last few weeks without him and Martin......still not very good though

    We cannot run block worth a lick but the pass-pro has stabilized. Shouldn't feel bad for having to pay him because, although he's a classic delta bravo, he shouldn't have been suspended.

    True. I tend to think the lack of a run game right now has a lot to do with the lack of familiarity between the linemen as well as the backs. You touched on something that is very underrated about Tannehill and that's the fact that he's shown great durability.

    Regardless of where we all come out in the assessment of his development, he's sure displayed the ability to take a beating and not get physically broken down or mentally shell-shocked.

    The way Jeff Darlington talks about Incognito you would think they're both lovers.

    Suspect the run blocking problems are more about miss matched OL talent with blocking scheme.

    As for Richie I, cannot really say Brenner has been worse, thought Garner did alright as well

    Well, if they weren't concerned that he did anything wrong would this extension take place?

    He's being paid for the previous two games. Basically two more games (paid) after this. So 6 games total.

    Also reserves the right to file grievance after he's released.

    I think that's probably accurate, considering Ross is in the record for saying that he can't basically fathom how a person could talk like that in a joking manner..

    I think the big question here is did the powers that be notify Ross of the Incognito thing at the golf tournament that the Dolphins helped keep quiet? Right now, if they didn't, I can imagine that Ross is steaming that he was even a part of the team after that incident. Just another nail in Jeff's coffin.

    Yep, and Ross is not exactly the high speed/low drag type

    Can you imagine what Ireland's pepperoni was doing to his stomach, his 4.6 mil LG, #2 pick LT and 4 mil RT all flaming out at basically the same time?

    3 week span at that, most teams have 1 quality backup offensive lineman, no team has 3 experienced backup offensive linemen just waiting to play

    Oh yeah, then Pouncey got sick.

    4 Quality backup offensive linemen?

    Viewed in that light, it is somewhat amazing we've had any success at all on offense

    I don't understand why any fan would want Incognito back. Guy is not a good football player.

    Incognito wasnt coming back after this season regardless. I think that this extention is just to make sure that he doesnt sign with another AFC team if the Fins are in the playoff hunt. I would bet that if the team wins the next two, some sort of deal is worked out where this is extended through the end of the season.

    Arn't O-Linemen by creed supposed to love run blocking 1st? mono on mono etc etc. Hmmm. If it keeps Tanny upright then im down with that but it does make us one dimensional. Not going to win games with a one trick pony. Fact.

    If his suspension runs out after the final game against NYJ, and we end up making the playoffs, what happens then? Do we extend the extension of his suspension(!), or is he back in the team? I'm assuming the former?

    I think the hits he's taking now are probably not nearly as bad as the ones he repeatedly took playing WR for two years in the Big 12. Thankfully, hits are nothing new for Tannehill. They are just another part of the game for him. Any other rook or second year QB could be mental toast by now.

    I'm not sure I necessarily agree with that. The difference with and without Richie isn't all that pronounced, and in fact our average per rush (4.7) and yardage per game (131.7) this month is as high as it's been all season. November was terrible, but that's when all the upheaval occurred. Richie was also the starter for 2 out of the 3 dismal rushing performances (Clev, Balt) this team has put on this season.

    To me the bottom line is we don't miss Richie I the player, when a UDFA and Nate Garner can replaced you and do a better job in run blocking and pass pro your 4 million dollar a yr salary is likely to be playing elsewhere next year.

    Yeah, absolutely. Even if he's completely cleared by the investigation I'd think he's done in Miami.
