Well training camp is well underway. First day in pads today. Jarvis Landry has really impressed so far. Every tweet I read about him the last three days has said you put the ball near him, he catches it. He's a vacuum. As long as he stays healthy, this kid has the potential to be a major steal for us.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

Yeah... He wasn't a second round pick with a track record of success at an SEC school. You really need to work on your comparisons. Anyway, good read about Philbin being on the hot seat: http://www.miamihera...gest-miami.html

I get the distinction. We just always here this stuff about our draft picks, and they all underwhelm basically without exception. Let's at least wait until a preseason game to call a late second round pick anything other than hopefully being a bona fide starter.

I hear ya. But hey, we need something to try and get excited about right? If we had the WR depth that we have at other positions on the roster, we'd be a SB contender. WR and d-line are looking like the deepest spots on the roster.

He evidently got man handled by Wake, but otherwise haven't read that much.  I suppose when it comes to O-lineman, no news is good news.

James has been taken to school by Wake so far. Good that he's learning from one of the best though I guess.

So maddog (or anyone else), you still considering the Metlife takeover?  Tix should still be available.  I asked estreet if he's going.  If not, I might pass since I wouldn't know anyone else there.

I may go, but I want to wait and see if the game is meaningful first. The last thing I want to do is freeze my ass off watching us play a game that has no impact on making the playoffs while being surrounded by 60,000 Jet fans.

Offense looked fantastic on the first drive. Awesome. And that was without Hartline, Wallace, or Clay. 10 plays right down the field. The play design looked light years ahead of anything we saw with Mike Sherman. Bill Lazor is off to a great start. Looks like we have a chance at having *GASP* a dynamic, creative offense. The Dolphins. Pretty novel concept isn't it lol? Anyway, that made the night for me. I won't even sh!t on the defense, even though the run D worries me (looked a lot like last year's run D).

Looks like I'm heading down to Miami for the opener against the Pats.  Haven't been there since '98 (also went in '97).  Looking forward to it, the Dolphin fans were very cool and friendly the other two times I went.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Btw where are your seats? I went to a Fins-Pats game in Miami back in 2002. I sat in the next to last row of the upper deck- I felt like I was in fvcking Foxboro with the number of Pats fans there were lol. Plus there was an incident in the parking lot that day too- a bus full of Pats fans had bottles and sh!t thrown at their bus as it was leaving the parking lot after the game. We won that day so thankfully the Pats fans were pretty quiet, but the bus thing I saw was crazy. Of course that was the year after the Pats' first SB win, so the bandwagon was in full force.

I'm 1-1 down there...both games were pretty painful...Pats won 14-12 in '97, lost 12-9 in OT in '98.  Bledsoe was absolutely awful in the '98 game:  13 for 39 for 240 yards and a pick (it was windy as hell that day)...as good as Bledsoe could be, he could REALLY drag down his team when he didn't have it...Brady was always much better at battling than Bledsoe, not even close.  Robert Edwards ran the ball 19 times for 27 yards, and would again get stuffed against Miami in their matchup (24 yards on 14 carries).  Marino had a rough game too:  23 for 42, 279 yards, 3 picks.  It was one of the uglier games I've seen.  Neither team ran the ball particularly well...they combined for less than 100 yards rushing.   

 

Seats are in Section 417.  Only $115 each.  My parents have a condo in Ft. Lauderdale...they just bought it a couple of months ago.

$115 seems kinda steep for 417, but it is opening day... And yeah, that '98 season was just ugly all around for Marino. It was clear he was at the end at that point, even though we still made the playoffs that season, and even though he played another year after that. I agree about Brady being a better battler than Bledsoe- Brady is extremely mentally tough, which helps to make him who he is. Gonna be a tough game for us, as it always is when we play the Pats. Can't wait.
