    And all the people that were hitting panic buttons and calling for Ireland's head over this can now relax...

    Wir werden sehen... I am curious as to what this BIG roster move is going to be. I haven't called for his head. But depending on the move, it may cause those that were calling for his head before to be even more up in arms. :tongue2:

    David Cantor on 640am said O'Hara had signed in Miami, he is the agent for Tim Dobbins and also said Dobbins was told it was a money issue that led to his waiver.

    Interesting about O'Hara though.

    OK, great, so now that Carey has apparently taken a pay cut/re-structured his deal, is it now Paul Soliai's turn? I'd love to see us get him off the tag and extend him. Just don't know if Ireland and company want to do that seeing as his best year was of course a contract year. However, I'd like to see it done. We could save ourselves some bigtime cash there probably.

    Yessir, he said that, then he sort of back pedaled a bit, then listed everyone they had brought in, bush and moore etc.

    Well safe bet we brought in someone, but afaik we had plenty of roster spots open on the 90 man?

    It's probably a domino effect from Carey. Colombo was signed to back up/compete with Garner in case they cut Carey, and if Carey isn't being cut someone is gonna go.

    Carey's working at RG today, and Feinga is the only person not on the field.

    Guess who is playing RG?

    Well now, somewhat surprising, but once again, such a move has been speculated about for awhile now.

    Garner v Colombo for RT?

    And Ray Feinga is absent, could be the end of him in Miami?

    James Martin was waived, and Feinga isn't at practice right now.

    And the constant tinkering with the O-Line continues. Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

    If we're kicking Carey inside and starting Colombo then we have downgraded both positions. Carey hasn't played guard since his junior year of college and Colombo has been terrible the last few years.

    Probably also emans that John Jerry was yet another wasted pick on the o-line by this "o-line expert"

    Has anyone seen anything to confirm the O'Hara report? I can't find anything.

    It's a ****ty idea. Nate Garner is probably never going to be as good as Carey is at anything.


    Tony Sparano doesn't make draft picks.

    Well, that's bad news for John Jerry. One would think Leonard Davis at RG would have been a better option, he still may be. When Carey was drafted by Miami, IIRC, we had him at guard at some point in those first couple of seasons and I believe he preferred guard over tackle? Anyone else remember that?

    I hope they are just trying some different configurations to see what they have. Carey didn't thrill me last year, I know he was dinged up some, but he sure seems like a better option than Columbo at RT.

    I'm sure he has a hand in picking players for the o-line.

    But we can call it another o-line black mark for Ireland then if you prefer. either way, it ain't good.

    I'd rather see the guys on the field before I declare anything an up/downgrade. And Sparano doesn't make draft picks, that'd be Ireland.

    ouch ..... not sure i could make that statement .....

    a healthy, motivated Carey - ok ..... but when was the last time we saw that? I know i can't remember. Not uncommon with OL .... but being lazy and overweight really bugs me, especially when you have the talent to excel.

    what bothers me though is that Colombo played really poorly last year, so i hope he was only an insurance policy - and not the primary investment. I honestly thought this would work in reverse .....

    here's to praying for a healthy Garner or a Murtha epiphany ....

    Colombo is a downgrade. You have at least two years of Cowboys tape to watch on him to convince you of that. There is no magic elixir here

    I think the move is better for Careys career. and I think he will be better at G then he was at RT last year. However, we really really really need Colombo or Garner to step their game up, because with Hennes feet, hes going to get killed from the right side.

    Is Carey-Columbo a downgrade from Jerry-Carey, McQuistan-Carey, Jerry-Murtha and McQuistan Murtha? I don't know and until Carey and Columbo practice or play together I don't see how anyone else could say one way or the other.

    I know they shuffle around in the beginning under TS but maybe that is a reason for the paycut, guards usually make less than tackles....

    Playing Colombo as a starter at all is a downgrade, certainly from Carey (who wasn't all that great himself).

    That's definitely a possibility. He has the feet to play out there.

    I can understand that This is Sparanos first head coaching job and that he inherited a squad stripped of talent. And that it takes time. I get that Finding a Top 10 Qb is for whatever reason boderline impossible for the majority of the league. But what I can't understand is how the O line, with all the Draft picks, and huge FA contracts, and Sparanos expert knowledge of the O line, still is a problem. Not to be rude but its the one area of the team that should be rock solid and dominant. I just can't forgive it at this point. If he doesn't have that line right and rolling early on I would fire him just over that. It's just not acceptable.

    Not so sure, I'm willing to see how it plays out as now the right side of the Oline will be massive, lots of power runs behind the two mammoths.

    Maybe he requested the switch inside to guard and the F/O said if you're doing that, we are taking back some of your salary.

    I've seen how Colombo plays out at RT. I know how it ends.

    Hmm, here's a gun with 6 chambers and one bullett. Should I pull the trigger a few times and see what happens or can I just tell that would be a bad idea?
