I guess I'm a bit old school. I don't use the "hate"--it's reserved strictly for the enemy...those that are trying to put you 6' under any way they can. Nothing else qualifies for me, but I understand your application of it to opposing teams/players.

Your hate (strong word) is misplaced, IMO. The historical importance of Notre Dame's success during the 1920s helped build excitement with college football and was a catalyst in helping other institutions, private or state run, build successful and highly competitive college football programs. The sportswriters back in that time period found them interesting along with their coaches. It was a gre

I love to watch aggressive defense; but both teams, IMO, really are 85 percent defense and 15 percent offense. If they could be as good on offense as on defense...now that would be two very balanced teams. On JT being a Jet. It's a business folks; it's a livelihood. He's in the sunset of his football career and will be forced to get a job doing something else in the near future. Who knows

Why do men always shoot themselves in the foot? A "beauty queen contestant" employed as a sports writer who wears provocative clothing along with sexy make-up and fragrance, invited into a place where testosterone is running high; what do you expect, suave, sophisticated behavior? This situation is ripe for uncouth group jr high (middle school) antics. Heck, good looking woman

FWIW, I'll put my money on Drew Brees. He doesn't have the statistics of Favre (nobody does) but Brees is a better team player and leader than BF. It really is a shame we didn't acquire Brees when we had the chance. My belief is the Saints will have their act together and stop the Vikings tonight.

Preseason is not the best barometer to judge a team's ability to perform. No doubt about it. The first game is a better indicator but not the final word. Dealing with opponents when it counts will test their mettle. I'd like the offensive line to push the D back, open holes for our RBs, and pass protect like a steel curtain. Our secondary will be tested early, that includes Dansby. If he's abl

Its been a long time since I've posted--been busy. I've been able to keep track of team progress and the NFL draft and do find things to be unsettled. Some of you have used the words "in disarray," which may be accurate. Watching the preseason games was inconclusive as to who really has talent. Vontae Davis showed some real spunk, but most of the others seem to have been just goin

Overall, linebacking corps is weak covering pass plays and neutralized most of the time during running plays. Joey Porter and Jason Taylor are dealt with and thwarted most of the time nowadays; the inside linebackers are not run stoppers nor are they capable of handling pass coverage over the middle. I'll bet efforts are made during the off season to employ a free agent or two that can firmly str

Chad Henne is growing. He needs to work on his touch, and to throw the ball more on and arc. Too many batted balls shows his low trajectory on release. He's a gamer though. Each game is better for him. Bess did a good job helping him, Hartline is growing into a reliable receiver. Good News for our running game.

With only Ricky running the ball, the Wildcat is no longer a viable running attack. Pat White is not a replacement for Ronnie Brown. In fact, I'm not sure what he "really does" other than add a momentary pause and partial distraction to the game. Re: Tebow. Don't underestimate his abilities. If he's still available on the board when the Dolphin's pick, I'd draft him and work him in

I wasn't impressed with Chris Chambers when he was a Dolphin; he never reached expectations. When he was traded to the Chargers, I watched the highlight films and never noticed any references to him. Getting released after 8 games states plenty about his WR value to the Chargers. He probably has some life left in him that some team will tap into to their benefit. Chambers is experienced, and a n

The pass rush seems to fade in the second half--almost as if the players are out of steam, Yet, I wonder if it's personnel differences. I need to review the tape. I agree with Realist that Wake needs to play. If he adds more spark to the seemingly lazing or tired pass rush in the second half, put him in. One sack would have had an impact. Even a rushed pass. Put Wake in.

The whole value system behind "political correctness" is to be courteous and not disrespectful of anyone's sex, race, or religion. All of these areas once entered may annoy, agitate or anger the person (or group) whose sex, race or religion is being addressed. Not all discussion of sex, race or religion, however, falls into the political correctness arena. There's a fine line and that

Griese's comment was foolish but not deserving of suspension or firing. Wisecracking comments are made by all at some time or another and we've become way to sensitive, IMO, today. True, not all jokes meant to be funny are funny, some are and some aren't. But to think that a wisecrack is made to do injury to others may be an assumption misplaced. I recently received an email that is fun

Now that a couple of days have passed, I think a running team like the Dolphins needs a TE who is really a full back in disquise. Put it another way, we need a TE who also can legitimately play FB. This "player" would have to be TE size (6'2" 240 to 6'4" 255) agile, a good blocker, decent runner, able to catch balls 10-20 yards downfield with capability to overwhelm backs and

That's easy call for me. The 17-0 record is sacred. A Pats win under those circumstance is not. I'd hope (not root) for a Pats win.

Below average quarterbacking is not saying Henne is a below average player. Dan Marino had oh-hum days-- all QBs have. I'm fully aware of Henne's experience level. Henne did not have a good game today. Ricky Williams is still a player! Everybody agree?

Ginn is only one player on the team. He is inconsistent, and doesn't play up to his draft status selection and will not in my opinion. Today, the team as a whole could not match the play of the Saints and that's what caused their strong, steady comeback. I never expect Ginn to make a play. When it happens (rarely) I am momentarily happy. While I can't speak for others, he's a major disappointment

Inspite of the valiant effort on the part of the Dolphins, the better team is the Saints. Drew Brees was not rattled and the Saint coaches were able to keep their players in the game. I observed a "pooping out of the defense" late in the 2nd half. When I noticed that, I thought the Saints would be able to come back if they kept working at it. That was the case. The team is playing pr

I don't exactly agree, but I too am disapppointed in our overall passing game. It is a combination of average receivers and below average quarterbacking. Ginn is not a #1 WR and is probably 2nd string on most teams. I think that holds true for the rest of the receivers too.

Agreed. Ted Ginn is not the WR the Dolphins had hoped for when drafted by Cam Cameron. Even with the game lost he failed to grab that last ball thrown to him in the end zone. A quality receiver would have had that ball for a TD. We definitely need to acquire a #1 WR. The draft will not produce one, we need to buy one or trade picks for one.

On ND. I don't miss many of their games and I'm familiar with the injury to Floyd. I have watched Golden Tate snare many difficult passes and he does a good job hanging on. Nevertheless, my expectation of the ND team, as a whole, is very high. Many Alum feel that way too. Season after season I am disappointed. Defining average is important to my opinion that the support around Clausen is slig

I'm going to jump in on the comments about Jimmy Clausen. First off, I'm a ND fan and have been all my life. My opinion is this: ND is overrated; Charlie Weiss is overrated; and, Jimmy Clausen is grossly overrated. Drafted out of CA, Weiss had great hopes for Clausen leading the Irish to big bowl games and hopefully a National Championship. His freshman year was abysmal. His sophomore year was

Ricky is a decent receiver too and there is room for him to catch and run in play action and wildcat formations. We may see more of this in the weeks ahead. The more he can do, the more valuable he is and defensive coordinators have to take that into account. That means more focus on him. Don't you love it. Run Ricky Run.

Ted Ginn has not reached #1 WR status IMHO; he would not be a #1 on any team in the league. From what I have seen of Brady Quinn's play, he hasn't been able to do much because of the horrid Brown's front line and receiver corp. A Tom Brady or Peyton Manning would be totally frustrated if they had a "team" like the Browns that they were trying to pilot. We've seen the same thing happen t
