Free advice: Which free agents-to-be should Dolphins most want back? Poll. Vote!; plus Heisman, NFL predix, wakeup call for embarrassed Heat & more

1aa1hannukah 1aa1lennon[1) It is SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8. A happy start of Hanukkah to our Jewish friends. And a fond appreciation of John Lennon, 32 years to the day since his murder. 2) Congrats to St. Thomas Aquinas, Miami Central and Cypress Bay for big football wins last night. 3) Did you remember to remember Pearl Harbor yesterday? 4) Have a feeling Marquez finally will beat Pacquiao tonight in Vegas. 5) Join us on Twitter @gregcote]

FREE ADVICE: TELL DOLPHINS WHICH OF THEIR BIG 7 FREE AGENTS YOU MOST WANT BACK: Seven prominent Dolphins starters (four on offense, three on D) will be free agents when their contracts expire after the season. Personnel lord Jeff Ireland is using the final month of the season to decide which if any he wants back, which if any he most wants to re-sign. Help him. Tell him. The team's Big 7 free agents-to-be are listed alphabetically in this poll. I know: It's tough to choose just three. For me, I'd count Clemons and Fasano at the bottom but consider all of the other five desirable to have back. How about you? Vote for the three (3) you most want back and say why.

YEAR OF THE WEIRD HEISMAN VOTE: The 78th Heisman Trophy is given tonight in New York and the 1aa1heismanthree finalists -- Kansas State QB Collin Klein, Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel and Notre Dame LB Manti Te'o -- make for a strange ballot and possible historic result. Klein, as a senior quarterback, would be the safest vote and most traditional winner, but he is seen as the underdog. The co-favorites would make history: Manziel as the first-ever freshman to win, and Te'o as the first linebacker to win and first defender of any kind since 1997. I'd like to see Te'o win but think Manziel will. But here is a real possibility: If enough voters can't bring themselves to vote for a defender or to anoint a freshman, Klein could win almost be default. Should make for a more interesting than usual Heisman announcement.  

NFL PREDIX: TALLEST TEST YET FOR DOLPHINS: Sunday's game in San Francisco looks like the 1aa1fripixunlikeliest victory yet for Miami, exceeding even the opener at Houston. Cannot see a struggling Dolphins offense doing much against an excellent Niners D. Click on Week 14 Gems for all our latest NFL predictions. Click King Sport Three-Quarters Awards for our Friday Page column. Is it time to start thinking of Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck not just in the rookie of the year race but also as league MVP candidates? Getting there.

HEAT, THIS IS YOUR WAKEUP CALL: Interesting week for the Heat. First Miami becomes the first NBA defending champion to lose to a team with as awful a record as the Wizards. Then last night Miami 1aa1lbjsuffers its worst home loss of the Big 3 era with all three playing, allowing the Knicks 18 3-point baskets. I think this twin embarrassment could be the double-slap this team needed. Coach Erik Spolestra admitted last night, "We need to address our defense." LeBron James (pictured) acknowledged, "We need more sense of urgency." They also need more D-Wade, more Chalmers and better defense -- perimeter to rim. Early December is way too early to panic, yes. But the national media is just waiting for the chance to portray the Big 3 Heat as a collapsing one-hit-wonder that won't repeat. More weeks like this one will open that floodgate.

MORE ON THE FIU/CRISTOBAL DEBACLE: Speculated frontrunner Butch Davis has indicated he is not interested in replacing wrongly fired Mario Cristobal at FIU. Just as well. Davis would be a recycled older coach who'd consider the school beneath him. What FIU needs is a young, talented, energetic coach who wants to be here, somebody like, well ... like Mario Cristobal! (I wonder if AD Pete Garcia is figuring out that he made a really bad mistake?)

Poll result: Go, Irish! (But not by a landslide): We asked in the previous blogpost if you are rooting for Alabama or Notre Dame in the Jan. 7 BCS National Championship in Miami, and the Fighting Irish won with 60.3 percent to the Tide's 39.7.

Click back. Will be updating/adding to this latest blogpost...

Keep Bush, Starks, Smith, and Hartline.

Like I told y'all ONE AND DONE.

Kazaam you might be right about the Knicks they spanked you even without Melo.

Starks Smith and Hartline are going to get HUGE money but they are all keepers Smith having a good year.

Let Long walk franchise tag for Reggie talk contract in 2014.

Big Baby,

if the dolphins keep that big fat zhlub of a left tackle, they'll be doomed again. long getting hurt gives them an opportunity to try jonathan martin at LT and consider one of wisconsin's power blocking linemen in the draft. the badgers send linemen to the pros every year who are successful it seems, with stanford's linemen as a group next for consideration. and alabama has a plethora of linemen as does ND. getting a replacement for #77 ought to be easy.

Big Baby,

went to a random mock draft and texas and m's tackles were rated 1-2, wit 2 being jake mathews son of bruce from the famous football family. the site stated that these two had outstanding games versus LSU's NFL bound DEs. also, NC had their two tackles rated in the top twenty. seantrel henderson made the top twenty, so maybe it is suspect.

Let someone else overpay for Long just don't let it be us.

Jake Matthews sounds like a safe bet his dad was a great player.

let's see now, its a little early to talk about free agency but it is what it is..Here is what I would do.

re-sign the following players...

Starks, Smith, Fasano and clemons...I would let Hartline, Long and Bush walk..

I would try to get both Jennings and Bowe in free agency, If I can only get one then re-visit resigning Hartline.

or they can let Starks go too (if he wants too much money) and move Odrick to tackle and draft a DE.

Fire SPOELSTRA!!!

TEACH HIM A LESSON!!

GARBAGE COACHING SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO COACH GREATNESS!!

WHAT WOULD BE DOC RIVERS RECORD WITH THE MIAMI HEAT?

THAT IS ALL DASHI IS SAYING!!!

SPOELSTRA SUCKS!!

ON ANOTHER SUBJECT MATTER,

BOTH OC AND KAZAAM, will soon begin today's discussion on how can people explore and live in other planets, since the end of the world is at hand later in the month (according to the Mayan's), I feel this is an appropiate subject matter for them to discuss.

they will each have to come up with their own thesis on how can all work/come together, from how they can get water, food, personal hygiene to how they will cope with boredom (presumably Cote's blog will not be available in another planet)...you guys can begin immediately and will have the rest of the day to state your case.

make me proud boys !!!

THE RETURN OF DASHI !!!!!

Oye, I get it, you wanna get rid of coach Spo but who are you going to replace him with??

there is no one available now, now MAYBE THEY CAN CALL PHIL JACKSON, he is available and maybe he comes back just to stick it to the Lakers, wouldn't that be something.

FZB,

Whats Up MAN!!

Dashi Will Replace Spo With Anybody! Brian Shaw! Or The Bald Headed Dude That Is Head Assistant for The Heat! U CAN TELL HE WANTS TO COACH!! HECK!! PROMOTE KEITH ASKINS!!

It Is Just Spoelstra Sucks!! The Heat have No Excuse To Be Playing Like This!! SPOELSTRA HAS NO FIGHT AND IS NOT TOUGH!! AND IT SHOWS ON THE TEAM!! U THINK A ZO LEAD HEAT TEAM WILL GET PUNKED BY THE KNICKS!! NO WAY!! NO HOW!!

I Know! Phil Is Out Of The Question For The Heat! And This Year! Dashi Is Not Going To Personally Disrespect Spoelstra!!

But ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!

THE KNICKS AND NETS HAVE BETTER COACHES!! And NOW THEIR TEAMS ARE ALSO STACKED!! Wait Til The Playoffs!

We Need A Guy That Knows Basketball! And Has Testicular Fortitude!!

And I Believe Coaching Basketball Is Like Coaching Baseball!! In 1 Thing!! USUALLY GUYS THAT PLAYED AT THE PROFESSIONAL LEVEL ARE THE ONES THAT MAKE GREAT COACHES!!

IN BASKETBALL NBA POINT GUARDS MAKE GREAT NBA COACHES!! IN BASEBALL MLB CATCHERS MAKE GREAT MLB COACHES!!

WITH THAT SAID MIKE REDMOND WILL BE A BETTER MANAGER THAN OZZIE!! AND TIM HARDAWAY WITH NO PRO EXPERIENCE WILL BE A BETTER COACH THAN SPO!

DASHI IS GOING OUT ON A LIMB NOW!! THE MARLINS WILL WIN MORE GAMES WITH REDMOND AND A BUNCH OF ROOKIES THAN GUILLEN AND THE $120+ Million Dollar Roster He Built Last Year!!

Redmond Understands The Game!! He Has Called A PERFECT GAME!!

THE REASON NFL QB'S AND MLB's! MAKE GOOD FOOTBALL COACHES!!

Something Has To Be Said For Making It As A Pro!! The Understanding Of The Sport! And The Ability To See How Things Are Done At The Pro Level!! As A Player Has To Help A PRO Coach!!

Dashi Can Pretty Much Guarantee That The Minute J.Kidd Retires And Decides TO BECOME A HC!! Kidd WOULD BE A GREAT COACH!!

The Understanding Of The Game!! And Being Coached By Other Pro Coaches!! And All The Different Personalities & Schemes that Coached Him! Gives Him a Better Chance To Succeed! Than Spo! Who The Best HE EVER DID WAS PLAY Division 3!!

Not Saying U Won't Find A Guy Who Is A Lifer Become A GREAT! COACH!! It's Just Those Kind Of Coaches Are Suoer Smart!! And Are Innovators!! In Their Sport!!

Spoelstra's B-Ball IQ IS LOWER THAN AT LEAST 5 OF HIS PLAYERS!! (Lebron, Wade, Allen, Battier, And Miller) 6 If U want To ADD BOSH TO THE LIST!! SPOELSTRA DOESN'T EVEN HAVE THE HIGHEST B-BALL IQ ON HIS STAFF!! McAdoo Does!! Followed By The Bald Guy Then K.Askins!! Then Spoelstra!

WHICH IS A MAJOR PROBLEM FOR ANY COACH!!! NO PLAYER SHOULD UNDERSTAND THE GAME MORE THAN HIS COACH!! WE HAVE A MAJOR PROBLEM WHEN THAT HAPPENS!! LOOK AT MIKE BROWN!!

OR TONY SPORANO!

Big Baby - I don't put too much stock into regular season games and records, aside from the handful of big time games where both teams are up for it. I'm not worried about the Heat losing to the Wizards and I'd be more worried about them losing to a full strength Knicks squad than a team without its two best players.

Unless Derrick Rose comes back hard (and I think he will), the Knicks are going to be the toughest out in the east for the Heat.

Last season in the playoffs Dashi started posting here, there were a number of legitimate complaints about Spoelstra's coaching at the time but Dashi couldn't name a single one.

He's right on FZB's level - 'Spoelstra bad'. Why? Because he's 'inconsistent'. Sometimes the Heat win their games but sometimes they lose. Not 'consistent' enough coaching. Brilliant analysis, 'Fire Spo'. Teach him a lesson...

What coaching moves has Spoelstra made that makes you think he's been a bad coach this year Dashi?

Just kidding, I'll leave you to it.

Fire Spo.

Harbaugh is a dink.

I hope he has bitter beer face after we play them.

Hey Kaz, I never said to get rid of Spo, I was just asking Dashi a question on who would be the replacement?

I'm not sure what you mean by "He's right on FZB's level" but I'm pretty sure you insulted me again, here's something we both can understand, blow me.

ps-you still think Mario Chalmer's is even remotely a good point guard?


Starks Hartline and Smith (in order) leading the way in fan voting for FA keepers followed by Reggie.

Kaz!!

U AND EVERYONE HERE KNOWS DASHI HAD OVER 110 VALID REASONS TO FIRE SPO!!!

BUT TO SUM UP MY NEW MAIN REASON!! WHY SPO SHOULD BE FIRED!!

HE HAS NO BOLAS(BALLS)!!

LIKE THE CHINESE GUY IN MAJOR LEAGUE 2!! USE TO SAY!

THE HEAT HAVE BECOME A CHARMIN SOFT TEAM!!! AND WHO'S FAULT IS THAT??

THE COACH!!

THE KNICKS AND NETS HAVE BETTER COACHES!! AND THE BULLS AND CELTICS!! HAVE THE 2 BEST COACHES IN THE DIVISION!!

Forget The Wizards Game!! Even Though Phil Would Never Lose A Game Like That!! When His Teams Were On Top!!

Forget The Spurs Game!! Which Was He Was OUTCOACHED!!! WITH THE SPURS BENCH!!

THE KNICK GAME!! ANY SELF RESPECTING HEAT FAN!! HATES TO SEE THE HEAT GET PUNKED TWICE BY THE KNICKS!!

THE MIAMI HEAT ARE A SOFT TEAM!!

AND SPOELSTRA HAS BEEN THE COACH OF THE CURRENT TEAM 3 YEARS!! AND HAS A NBA TITLE!!!

INCONSISTENCY!!! SHOULDN'T EVEN BE A TOPIC OF DISCUSSION!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!

======================================================

NOW WITH RILEY!!

DIFFERENT STORY!! PAT MADE THE TEAM BETTER!! AND KEEPS IMPROVING THE ROSTER YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT!!

THIS YEAR!! THE TRUTH HAS REALLY COME TO THE FRONT!!!

SPO DON'T KNOW BASKETBALL!!

Recognizing the significance of the day, and their current predicament, the PA announcer at American Airlines Arena suddenly transmits: SPORA, SPORA, SPORA, as thousands of Heat fans are observed running for cover.

Please don't take this as me asking for elaboration but I've never heard a valid reason - 'he's too soft' is as meaningless and intangible as 'he's too inconsistent'.

NBA champion Mario Chalmers?

Yea, he's good enough to win with. Better than Cole still.

KAZ,

DASHI ONLY NEEDS 1 REASON!

SPOELSTRA SUCKS!!

IF U CAN'T SEE THAT!! I CAN'T HELP U!!

========================================================

Has The Play Calling Gotten Better?

Have The Young Guys Developed?

Is He Still Playing JA?

ETc. ETc.!!

NAME 1 THING A NBA COACH DOES!! (OH RIGHT THE NBA IS THE ONLY LEAGUE COACHING DOESN'T MATTER!! GO ASK THE LAKERS THAT!!)

AND U WILL SEE SPOELSTRA SUCKS AT IT!!

I'M TIRED OF SAYING ALL THE THINGS SPOELSTRA DOES WRONG!!!

TELL ME 1 THING SPOELSTRA DOES RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!

EXACTLY!!!!

SPOELSTRA SUCKS!! EVEN HIS OWN PLAYERS DON'T RESPECT HIM!!!

AND BEING SOFT!!! IS A LEGITIMATE CONCERN IN THE NBA!!

DID U SEE WHAT DOC SAID ABOUT HIS OWN TEAM A FEW WEEKS BACK!!

HIS LESSON TO HIS TEAM AFTER THE NETS GAME!! WAS TO STOP PLAYING SOFT!!!


WHY ARE THE HEAT SOFT IN THE MIDDLE!!! BECAUSE SPOELSTRA COACHES SOFT!!!

THE HEAT HAVE A PUNK!! COACHING THEM!!

SPOELSTRA HAS NO BACKBONE!!!

AND IT SHOWS!!! ON HIS TEAM!!

THIS IS THE COACHES TEAM!! NOT LEBRON OR WADE!!

THE HEAT ARE A PERSONIFICATION OF SPOELSTRA NO ONE ELSE!!

HE IS THE COACH!!

AGAIN!! WHAT DOES SPOELSTRA DO AT A HIGH LEVEL THAT WE CAN SAY MAKES HIM A GOOD COACH? NEVER MIND A GREAT COACH!!

THIS IS THE SOFTEST HEAT TEAM EVER!! AND THAT FALLS ON SPO!! NOT THE PLAYERS!!!

So long Jake

Parcellls wasn't just terrified of bungling the #1 overall pick, he reasoned that an LT would have longevity so we sunk an exorbitant amount of money at that position. No mas.

Trent Dilfer still thinks that Tannehill is going to be very good, I agree with him.

http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/thedailydolphin/2012/12/07/trent-dilfer-miami-dolphins-qb-ryan-tannehill-is-going-to-be-an-absolute-rock-star-in-the-nfl/

While it is way too early to panic on the Heat there are very real concerns with this team, mostly point guard (mainly the defense) and defensive rebounding/lack of defensive intensity, there are some players that just can't cut it anymore, mostly UD and Mike Miller, both highly inconsistent.

Props to Kaz (I can't believe I'm giving him credit) for being the only one saying the Knicks were going to be a force this year.

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.

* Has the play calling gotten better? What do you dislike about Spoelstra's play calling this season?

* Have the young guys developed? What young guys? Your boyfriend Dexter Pittman? Whose fault is it that Dexter Pittman can't be on the court for longer than 30 seconds without fouling?

* Is he still playing Joel Anthony? You mean Miami's only center? The only player on the team outside Wade and James who can defend the basket?

Guess you're right - I forgot that you think Spoelstra should be playing Pittman instead of Joel Anthony.

That's a legitimate basketball reason to dislike Spoelstra. Wrong and dumb on many levels, but a basketball reason.

What has he done right?

He moved Bosh to center and put Shane Battier at power forward, an unprecedented coaching decision that kept the Heat alive in the playoffs and was the #2 reason the Heat won the championship after LeBron James' individual greatness.

are you not concerned?..even for a little bit of the Heat's lack of size in the middle and their lack of quickness at the poing guard position?

other teams have been killing the Heat with their Point Guard penetration, if they go against a quick guard, they have a tough time beating that team, this is their achilles heel.

still, when you have the best basketball player in the world they will be in every game.

FZB,

What Lack Of Size?

He Moved Bosh To Center! And Battier To PF!!

2 Guys That Have NEVER AVERAGED OVER 10 REBOUNDS A GAME AT THAT POSITION!! AND NEVER PLAYED THE POSITION!! YET! SPO IS THE ONLY COACH IN BASKETBALL HISTORY!! THAT SEES BOSH AS A CENTER!! AND BATTIER AS A PF!! THE GUY IS SMARTER THAN COACH K!! AT DUKE!!

NEVER MIND!! LIKE U SAID!! HE KEEPS PLAYING CHALMERS!! WHEN COLE IS THE BETTER PLAYER!!

AND KAZ!! U KNOW MY BFF ON THIS TEAM IS LEBRON JAMES!!!

AND IF THERE IS ONE THING!! I CAN PROUDLY SAY!! IS LEBRON JAMES HAS DONE THE MOST WITH LESS COACHING THAN ANY PLAYER IN NBA HISTORY!!!

AND ON THE PLAY CALLING!! EVEN SPOELSTRA ADMITTED HE IS NOT EVEN CALLING PLAYS THIS YEAR!!! WAIT UNTIL THE PLAYOFFS AND THE NBA GAME SLOWS DOWN!! EXPOSED!!

ON JA!! REALLY!!! HAVE U SEEN HOW BIG OF A OFFENSIVE LIABILITY JA IS!! DOES HE EVEN KNOW HOW TO DRIBBLE!! NEVER MIND SHOOT!

AND CHASING THE NEXT MANS PLAYER IS NOT DEFENSE!!!

THE GUY IS ALWAYS RUNNING LIKE A CHICKEN WITH HIS HEAD CUT OFF!! NO DIRECTION!!! THAT IS WHY HE IS ALWAYS OUT OF POSITION TO REBOUND!!! HE IS NOT GUARDING HIS GUY!! HE IS RUNNING AROUND!! JUST A STEP SLOW FROM EVERY SHOT!!

AND DON'T GIVE ME THE PICK AND ROLL C R A P!!!

NOBODY PAYS ATTENTION WHEN JA IS ON THE COURT!!

THE HEAT PLAY 4 ON 5 WITH ANTHONY ON THE COURT!!

Lol only FZB thinks the dolphins are right where they need to be and concerned with the Heat. The second the Heat begin to care, they'll be fine.

Omar Kelly at the Sun-Sentinel says even Ross considers the 2010 draft as belonging to Ireland. Just an FYI since you always insist that year is on Parcells (who had already checked out).

I don't know what Dolphins games that you people been watching,To say that Sean Smith is having a good year,
That guy is no-good the sucks,He should have been let go by the Dolphins,Again he is no good.

Sean Smith may not be that good but he is light years better than every other CB on the roster.

#thanksjeff

Spoelstra seems to be the least of Miami's issues.

Riley molded this team and won a championship by bringing together three great players and surrounding them with experienced (older) players. This may be oversimplification, but pretty much, that is what he did.

Riley knew that aside from talent, the three player's combination of youth and athleticism would be more than enough to offset the reverse qualities of the rest of the team.

However, no one escapes father time, and D. Wade is no longer a 27 year old flying act. Sure, he could and should develop a more "sedentary" form of the game, as Jordan and others were forced to do. But this only underlines and emphasizes what Riley needs to do next.

Riley would be well served by taking a page from his counterpart in San Antonio, R. C. Buford, who recognized that his three core players were not getting any younger, and thus took steps to maintain a winning hand.

Consider that Duncan, Ginobili and Parker combine to be older than a century (101), yet the balance of their team averages just 26 years of age. Conversely, Miami's Wade, James and Bosh total 85 years old. That's just under six years younger on average than the Spur's trio. However, Miami's balance averages 30 years of age, or four years older than their Spurs counterparts.

Frankly, all of us who follow the NBA should be very impressed with how that organization finds young, seemingly obscured players, inserts them into the Popovich system and continue to win.

Pat Riley would be better served mimicking the Spurs' tactic vs. continuing to complement his core trio with yesteryear's talent.

Andrew,

Hey amigo, Bill Parcells left the Dolphins on Oct, 2010, the draft was in April 2010, the last time I checked April comes before Oct, Parcells ran the 2010 draft, if you're going to post something like that then have some facts to back up your statement.

as a matter of fact, Parcells picked rounds one through five and Ireland was allowed to select the last two rounds, that was Parcells motto the last two years.


Dashi,

the heat do have a lack of size @ Center, Bosh is a center in name only, he's barely a power forward, he gets pushed around the basket all the time.

joel anthony is barely 6-9 and can't guard bigger centers either, soyes, I do believe the Heat lacks size at center.

Oye OC, I want to apologize to you. After reading Dash's posts I am more certain now than ever that he's the one that blew that 56 in the IQ test. I've gone back and reviewed all of the numbers and Kaz is still at 22, Dash at 56, and you punched in at a 69. Boy FZ, I'm really going to enjoy hearing Dash, Trust Fund, and OC give this lecture on life on other planets. I can only imagine what it's going to do for the bottom line of my planet insurance business. I sure hope they talk lots and lots of doom and gloom stuff.

Oh boy, here we go again, they lose two games in a row, and one of them to the Knicks and it's time to break up the team that just won it all six months ago. And you wonder why fan is short for fanatic.

Wood's,

we can only hope they are preparing their lectures to present them to us, I can't wait..I mean, life in other planets is serious shit bro.

the doom and gloom stuff is normal for this blog, you should be able to sell a ton of policies...

Parcells was completely out to lunch by the end of 2009, Ross will hold Ireland to 2010 as he should.

Not that the debacles of the last two seasons are any better arguments for jeffypoo. I'm already excited for when we overpay jake long because we want to control the line of scrimmage.

"parcells was completely out to lunch by the end of 2009, Ross will hold Ireland to 2010 as he should"

What the hell does that mean?..So I shot down your argument and now you make this up?..child please.

Ross knows who was in charge when Parcells was here which is the reason Ireland was kept, Ross knows the deal, before deciding to keep Ireland Ross talked to some very knowledgeable NFL people and everyone adviced him to keep Ireland, stop making shit up, you look like a fool.

Woody,

Dashi doesn't want To Destroy the Team!! This has been The Best Team The Big 3!! Have Had out of the 3 Years Here! This Team Is Still Championship Caliber!!

This Team Is Stacked With Offensive Weapons!!

JA Shouldn't have Seen Minutes Last Year!! He Shouldn't Even Dress This Year!!

Dashi Just Wants To Fire Spo!!

OC,

Made a Great Point! About The Spurs Playing Young Guys! And That was My Philosophy Last Year!

But that is not the Riley Way!

Plus the Spurs! Have Popavitch!! A REAL COACH!!

Again,

The Heat's Problem Start and END with SPO!!

===================================================================

Woody,

Haven't been Here In a While. So My bad If DASHI Doesn't get the Insurance Joke!

Thanks for Considering Me Smarter Than Some of The Others (Sarcasm, Have to say its Sarcasm Else people Will Actually Think Dashi is Being Sincere)

But U know Dashi Is Autistic! 56 Is 50 IQ POINTS TO HIGH FOR DASHI!!

Planet Life Insurance? (Still Funny! Even Though haven't Heard The Original)

U ARE A BETTER MAN THAN ME!! IF U THINK WE ARE GOING TO VISIT ANOTHER PLANET OR FIND ALIEN(Intelligent) LIFE FORM!! IN THIS GENERATION!! OR THE NEXT 100 YEARS!

And Who says The Insurance Game Isn't Socialized By then! Or China Goes First!

Not Saying It Is Not Out There!! And Every Planet Has Life.

Just Doubt That In My Lifetime!! We Will Even Visit Mars!!

If U ask Dashi!!

I'm One of Those That Believes We Have Never Been To The Moon!! At Least Not That 1 Time!! In the 60's!!

Unless U count Dropping Acid And Listening To Floyd!!

Then I know A Couple Astronauts! (LOL)

But Hey!! If People are Selling Lots On The Moon!! U can Sell Planet Life Insurance!!

Just Won't Quit My Day Job!! Over It!!

Hope U Find Investors!!

Maybe U can Tell Them about Ur Experience as The Only Surviving Member of Heaven's Gate!!

Jeziz Dash, please tell me you don't do blow, I'd hate to see you "descarrilado" writing shit on this blog.

Woody,

Drugs?

Sorry. Not Dashi!

More Power To U! IF U CAN DO DRUGS! AND FUNCTION!

Not Saying That Dashi Has Never "Partied". Just Not For Me!

I don't Even Drink A Lot!

Again, There Is Nothing Wrong With Experimenting! The Problem Is When U Go From Experimenting To Habit! Dashi Doesn't Even Like To Play The Lotto! Just So I Won't Start a Habit!

OOOhhh Boy,

Dashi , bro, you need to stay on this blog for a while.

Both Texas A&M tackles will be drafted in the first 3 rds.
I agree 100% with shadow and Big Baby.
Smith, Hartline & Starks should be resigned.
Bush only if the price is right,for the Fins not Reggie

If EYE were GM, I'd ,,, see above comment for Fins free agents...
1. sign a good Free Agent WR like Dwayne Bowe
2. Draft
rd 1 - DE pass rusher
rd 2(2 picks) ND TE & best WR on board
rd 3(2) RT & CB
on the other rds,, FS, OG, QB

Matt Moore is gone after this season.

Jimbo's a fu**ing genius. His IQ should be in the 120's wouldn't you agree Mr Woodcock?

Jimbo,

I agree with you, free agent WR and DE pass rusher are top priority but I think I rather find a CB in round two (better talent available) but I like your thinking.

I guess you think the ND TE is good, I haven't paid too much attention to the draft yet, I'll try to find out about some of the prospects after the season.

Matt Moore is probably gone but If I'm the dolphins I'll try to keep him as a back-up but I think he'll get more money elsewhere.

Eifert will not be available in round 2 when the Dolphins pick (likely around 45).

Mira OC, check this out. But don't worry even though the Lakers suck you have that nice troll movie coming out soon to take your mind off of things. I would suggest heavy drugs chased down by buckets of booze but then that might become "a habit" as Dash says.

Oye Dashi, ni un trastazo de un pezon de tremenda jeva?

http://www.latimes.com/sports/basketball/nba/lakers/la-sp-bolch-lakers-20121208,0,118509.story

Dashi - no one thinks that moving Bosh to center and Battier to power forward was a bad move for the Heat and that the team would have been better off playing Dexter Pittman.

There's not a coach or basketball analyst on the planet that doesn't think that was a phenomenal and innovative move by Spoelstra that largely contributed to the Heat winning the title.

Miami doesn't have any great point guard options but Chalmers is superior to Norris Cole in every way - adjusted to 36 minutes (considered full time starter minutes) Chalmers has more points, more assists, more steals, less turnovers, and higher shooting percentages than Cole. He's also a better on the ball defender and MUCH better at playing the lanes.

So your real basketball complaints about Spoelstra are completely off base and make no sense.

Funny ....all the bashers here didn t say peep in the NBA Finals about Spoelstra last year when they beat the Thunder 4 out of 5 games.Why is that?????????????????Wait till the Playoffs end folks....then we ll see if Spoelstra is worthy of keeping at THAT time.Just keeping it REAL.

KEEP STARKS,SMITH, AND HARTLINE SIGN MIKE WALLACE FA,TRADE FUTURE#1 PICK TO MOVE UP IN 1ST ROUND AND DRAFT TEO. USE 1ST 2ND RD PICK ON CB(BEST AVAILABLE) 2ND PICK ON BEST TE AVAILABLE. RESIGN BUSH ONLY AT DISCOUNT AND FINALLY FRANCHISE J LONG ONLY IF LINE STRUGGLES THE FINAL 4 GAMES. IF NOT DO NOT RE SIGN. CUT DANSBY AND DRAFT LB IN LATER ROUNDS TO EVENTUALLY RE PLACE BURNETT. AS FOR MIAMI HEAT FANS RELAX IT'S TOO EARLY THERE ARE OVER 80 GAMES LEFT. DON'T BUY IN TO D-WADE THING. AS LONG AS THE TEAM STAYS HEALTHY THEY WILL BE THE TEAM TO BEAT. FINALLY I THINK SUNDAY'S GAME WILL BE CLOSER THAN EXPERTS THINK AND DON'T BE SURPRISED IF DOLPHINS PULL UPSET! YES I HAVE BEEN DRINKING!!!

Enough with the big name coaches and the rumors! There's no sure thing they gonna win no matter how big thier name is! I'm watching on tv right now one of the so called genius coaches-Tom Izzo getting beat at home by Loyal-Chicago! All those Blue-chip stars they got and they look like a lower conference team...I forgot that UM had beat them....

haha its early in the nba season and the haters are at it again! the heat will be ready to reheat!

Forget the Lakers the team that will have to be reckoned with in the playoffs in the western division is the LA Clippers. OC was dead on about these guys. Every time I watch them play they're lighting somebody up. Hell, if they don't have the deepest bench in the league I'd like to see who does.

The Clip Joint's second unit comes in and kills whomever they're up against. They just misused the Suns starters in the 4th quarter. They have this guy Crawford who is a "two point a minute guy" kid gets out of bed and hits a three. Like I said, they will have to be reckoned with during the playoffs.

Whew !!!!

Well, that was close, the government has promised that the world won't end on 12-21-12..

That alone merits that we change the constitution and give Obi 4 more years..

Thanks Obi

Ginrai,

always glad too see a post from you, one of our "charter members". hope all is well and wishing you a merry xmas and a wonderful 2013.

also thought that manny p, the pillipino would lose as he ois getting old while marques is getting bigger and stronger (get out the test tubes).

gonna be a terrific watch at 4 oclock as the 49ers have the best atmosphere, one of the best uniforms, and the terrific frnak gore shlepping the pigskin. a gutsy move to start playing kaepernik, but as in the walsh days whoever played looked good in the system. of course my ears will be locked in on the tandem of cefalo (maybe i will count the "they're showing blitz" that cefalo uses non-stop, and come upwith a couple of griese gems like his having tom brady 2-1 in SBs during last week's radiocast. might even bring out the sirius boombox and listen to the niners' call for some possible objectivism.

DARBY DAY, MIKE1!!!!

have a commitment to going to temple and then to my aunt in boca, so i will miss the most exciting match in the EPL thus far. this is alabama/auburn on steroids. man u by two as chicharito, van persie, and rooney too much firepower for man city.

On the road to Dallas, will miss the Fins - 9rs game. Another close loss? Probably but Miami has a shot of pulling it out, SF has not been great this yr.

Johnny QB wins the Heisman. Good job boy~

Dear Mr. Shadow
How correct you are RE: The 49ers uniform, It just takes my breath away,Me and my husband usually dont watch football unless those gorgous uniforms of the local team is playing.
Maybe one day we can get together and talk about drapes.
