    I will be interested to see Hickey and the personnel department's approach to the next two days. Will the salary cap situation next year influence this year in any way? Trades or taking chances on waiver claims?

    No doubt in my mind, he put on 20lb in the space of 3 months. Do you think he did that without taking steroids?

    btw barry jackson is saying that punt block formation wasn´t by design..thigpen....ouch, he also is calling billy turner´s injury a bone bruise in the foot, which is way better than turf toe, imo

    Nope. No reason to cut either now, with Jordan suspended for 4 weeks. IMO, Shelby sitting out tonight means he is making the team for sure. I expect we'll see him getting more early down snaps at LDE, to help keep Wake fresh for passing downs. Shelby is our best run defending DE.

    Lobato was woefully inaccurate on the two other throws I saw in Gator's direction, one of which could have been a TD with Gator's nose for the end zone. I loved the way they used him. I saw him as a lead blocker from a fullback position, I saw him as an h-back, I saw him as an on the line tight end, and I saw him lined up like a true slot receiver.

    I think he makes it. Versatility too much to ignore.

    Oh, yes I can. I wish there were 59 more senators just exactly like him.

    I totally cannot imagine any scenario where he does not make the 53. None whatsoever.

    and then he switches to number 56 from freeny...i think 56 would look very nice on him

    We call that coffee royal. IMO, it's a waste of good Bailey's though. I'd rather mix one third vodka, one third Kahlua, and one third Bailey's. We call that a Blind Russian. :yes:

    Cox entered the league at about 6'4 and 250. Nothing about him ever looked stubby to me. He had very long arms.

    2011. Coincidentally we also played the Patriots at home (and lost) in the season opener... we started that season 0-7, so yeah, like you said, it doesn't matter.

    He claimed he got busted for stimulants, but we can be pretty sure, you don't pack on that much lean muscle with a stimulant.

    From among several pleasant surprises, there can be no argument that the most surprising is McCain.

    The brilliant decisions of the pizza dude. That injury more or less began the chinks appearing in Jake Long's armor.

    that sucks... because it's after our cuts will be handed in. kind of a moot point after that.

    It may still be fun to watch McCain wreak havoc, and he is making this team!!!

    BTW, did you notice Shelby or Fede in the game tonight? NFl.com Gamebook says they both played, but I never seen either one.

    Film review of this game is gonna be tough. I'd rather have a frontal lobotomy than Lobato in front of me.

    Heyooooooo!!

    IGOT IT!!! lets make him gain 20lbs and make him a def end..

    Fu@&in ruined Dion Jordan..if they don't have him go bsck to the way he was their idiots..

    I've said this from the beginning, they misjudged his strength due to the injury and imo the re-injury that happened against the browns, and they thought wrong..the guy can't hold the weight, his explosive, artistic, graceful movement has turned into Brian Hartlines balance..he literally can't stay on his feet, it's not a good sign man.

    I don't know if I've ever seen such a travesty when it comes to misjudging a players skillset, it's actually painful to watch.

    Sturgis is a problem. It's not that he missed the FG but he was short from 56. He is not ready. Phins don't have a kicker.

    Linebackers, we have two blitzers, Wheeler and McCain, and two thumpers, Misi and Trusnik. Tripp is a rangy guy. it would've been nice to have Jordan prepped for OLB position during the offseason. Now we are stuck with Jenkins or Freeny. I like Freeny better. I think Jenkins should be cut.

    Safeties are a huge concern.

    Coaching, I am very concerned with the number of screen passes and jailbreak blitzes.

    Williams should be #2 back, behind Moreno. That's a nice find. I don't know if Miller has a future with the Phins, he is going to have to ball to prove himself, right now I am not sure he is worthy of a roster spot.

    Sturgis wasn't short on the FG attempt, it was outside the left (kickers POV) upright.

    It looked short to me, it looked like it went under the crossbar. May or may not also have been wide.

    He is right, but it barely went above the crossbar, weak sauce.

    Interesting. Still disappointing though, 56 isn't that long distance wise in todays NFL you'd like room to spare. You can live if it slices.

    a 56 yarder for a kicker who is testing out his injured groin for the 1st time in a couple of weeks, it was a pretty strong kick, so the only thing that is weak is your statement
