Sean Spence playing nice game for Pittsburgh....out of all those overhyped underachievers from that school that never really did shit or made the U matter again like everyone thought..he is the exception. Omionhead thought he had a goldmine with that haul.....turned out to be fools gold

@ByTimReynolds: Who has the most TDs in the NFL as of this moment?

Travis Benjamin. #TheU

herbieibis

What does that say about are defensive coaches that most of the Sr's on defense aren't anything more than potential free agents in next years draft.
If we do indeed lose Burns & Elder also in the draft, what we have left as far as talent and depth is not very good and what we are bringing in, so far is nothing more than average. If we are going to continue this trend, then they need to get rid of DENO, sooner than later and find someone who can develop the DEE-talent.
As far as Golden goes, he is a little above average as a recruiter. No doubt he is tireless, but at the end of the day you are graded on results and he has lost out on 2 many guys, that should be playing here, instead of somewhere else. The closer he is not!

Yep and yep.

There has been no bigger hater than me, and still at this point in the season there is no other way to look at things. Anybody not pulling for Al is hoping for something that could turn out to be a catastrophe for the program.

Lurker and I agree 2 days in a row!

CGNC,
Honestly the way we cover sometimes....and play D....I think you could play one corner, and I could play the other. ....and I turn 57 tomorrow! We put WWIN at DT, Soup at rush end, 1epi at safety, CR and Dude st LB, Thee Mack at other DE......we might lead the nation in D! LOL!

How do you know what we have behind our current DBs is average?

Isnt that what you would have said about Corn this time two seasons ago?

I'll wait until next year to worry about next year.

VA Cane

Bet I am the old man Epi! Spence did a nice job.
Julio Jones is a great player.....pretty obvious he didn't take public speaking in college....I find it sad kids are not taught speech....kid gets on national tv and sounds like a dolt! We can do better.

I agree Epi with you both....3-0 means people are doing something right, just keep working and improving, stay aggressive, play to destroy and never be nice.
I like AlPa, and I want him to win. I like NoDPa, I just don't like the passive laid back wait for them to hit you in the mouth D style that he and AlPa use. Hope they get out of it, but hell just keep winning....that's the bottom line. Anyone wanting to lose for any reason is a loser.

This post would be good and true if you didn't come to Golden's defense about EVERYTHING. That is what makes you a Golden supporter. IJS

Dear Coach Golden... please add that fake punt catch to your play book!!!

herbieibis

Go Canes,
Do U see any star power coming in, or any that came in last year? Elder, was highly rated coming in but then again so was Howard.
Look no further than the teams that are constantly at the top of the recruiting heap and you'll why they are up there in the rankings. Being mediocre isn't a good selling point and being poorly coached isn't a desired recipe for success. I hate FSU and they have done less with a whole lot more but just think if we had a couple Jalen Ramsey's back there in our secondary how good we would be but that being said, at the end of the day if you can't rush the passer, it doesn't matter who you have in the secondary, they will get toasted.
I've seen DENO's work for a little over 4 years and I ain't impressed and the sad thing is we do have some talent on that side of the ball.

Rooting for success doesn't make the obvious issues go away.
Posted by: The Dude | September 27, 2015 at 03:19 PM

No, but achieving success means the obvious issues have been addressed. They have addressed some of the D problems, so there's some hope they'll handle the rest!

Go Canes

I don't know if they'll be stars. None of us do.

Posted by: WWIN | September 27, 2015 at 04:45 PM

Except what you just said is not true.

I rarely come to Golden's defense, and I certainly don't come to "Golden's defense about EVERYTHING". I have many issues with our performance and coaching, I just don't dwell on them, because that's already done everywhere, ad nauseam.

I think some people's obsessive and relentless hate alters their reality, and they see people who are are not constantly bitching and moaning as slurp ears, or defenders, when in reality, they're not.

But you think what you want, knock yourself out. I know the truth about my posts. I'm not a Golden "defender" I'm a canes fan that doesn't post Golden hate 24/7, which to you is a "defender"

USAFCane

why do I get the feeling all is not well with the Dolphins?

TonyCane

Dolphins should do what they did in 1991 and trade their first round selection. If you are going to have DeVante Parker on your roster and not use him, why not trade him for another offensive lineman?

Go Canes

I can't believe I spent my hard earned money to sit here and watch this disaster of a team.

TonyCane

I can't believe they drafted a potential superstar player in Devante Parker and use Rishard Matthews instead. I think we need to go back to Dave Wannstedt....we can draft offensive linemen in rounds 1-3 each year, and ultimately have an offense that consists of ten offensive linemen and one really big, beefy "quarterback". All he'll do is do QB sneaks.

But seriously, why draft Parker and not use him? If he's that injured, then put him on the inactive list or IR. If he can play, PLAY HIM.

TonyCane

Philbin is gone.

TonyCane

Sad thing is, Miami will rally to win 5 out of their last 8 and pick around 14. But seriously, this is a horribly run franchise whose run of futility is similar to Green Bay and Tampa Bay in the 70s and 80s, Detroit (always), and Arizona through most of their tenure. It's a poorly run, absurdly managed team. Anyone could have looked at Wannstedt's player personnel moves in Chicago and see that these would not translate to Miami. Or spending a valuable second round draft choice on a wildcat quarterback.

WWIN

Posted by: Lurker | September 27, 2015 at 05:20 PM

I've never heard of any issues that you have with the coaches. But fair enough

I'm not a Golden hater... I hope he can get things turned around for him, the program, the players, and his family. I'm not wishing for him to get fired. But when he does something wrong ima call him on it and I'll also give him his due credit for when he does good, that's just keeping it real. So far I would say he's doing a decent job for 2015

But there are people out there who I believe love to wallow in misery, and secretly and not so secretly, hope we lose. That's how they're built. I'm not built that way. It's a choice.

Posted by: Lurker | September 27, 2015 at 01:35 PM

LMAO! Maaaaaan, take that sad sappy @$$ speech to Happy Space. If misery means I don't care, you're right...WIN ANYWAY.

CaneRock

TonyCane...the Dolphins should've hired Todd Bowles when they had the chance. How Philbin was a better candidate than Him at the time...IDK.

VA Cane

Dolphins have been horrible since Marino.....how could you have him as a QB and not build around him a winner? I wish Oakland would have drafted him if he had gone to Oakland they had great talent minus a real qb.....they might have won 3 or 4 SBS....sure he partied in college.....knew good friend of suitemate.....he loved weed and powder.....but who cares? Great great qb. Hated to see him toil in Miami. Al Davis loved renegades ....was too involved in lawsuit vs NFL missed getting Dano.....I know with the talent they had add Marino....scary!

TonyCane

Problem with Miami was their defense started to go south in 1986, just a few years after drafting him. So they spent most of their efforts from 1987-1994 drafting for defense. By the time they tried focusing on upgrading Marinos arsenal they were well into the downside of his career.

USAFCane

Philbin should have been fired 2 seasons ago. The only miami based coach possibly worse than golden. Tied up serious cash in tannehill, tthough I still think he can be good.

Yup, and JJ couldn't put together an offense for crap.

Go Canes

I honestly don't see how Philbin survives this game. This has been an embarrassment of epic proportions.

But who the hell do you replace him with from this staff?

As for the Phins hiring Philbin, I was like "who?" kinda like Hocutt hiring Golden. I am so glad they spent so much money fixing the O line and Defense. The phins are playing disjointed. I don't think Tanny is that bad, his O-line has been a sieve since he has been there.

VA Cane

The Bears and Dolphins are both pretty bad, Ravens as well. I am thrilled at Oaklands start, we are not bad....lotta promise for us. Oregon got crushed still ranked, TN gave FL that game. Football is a crazy game.

USAFCane

Ducks are bad this year. To still be ranked is a joke. Didn't the same happen with auburn last week? What little integrity the polls had is fast disappearing.

I'm ok with canes being unranked. Win on thursday and we'll be top 25 heading into fsu, just like the networks want.

CaneRock

Bills beatin' the Dolphins with their former players (Incognito & Clay), and Florida (Bradham,Robey,kid from Clemson,Williams,etc,etc).

VA Cane

Just win, the polls will take care of themselves. We need to win a couple more.....we are heading upward....its a good thing.....we get ranked peoples heads swell cause its been a while....just win week at a time. I really don't care as it means nothing.

Go Canes

Being ranked means something. Maybe not this year, but next year for PO positioning. Good teams know how to handle failure, as well as success.

thirstybuzzardcane

This is exactly why polls should come out after the 4th week. No way UFag should be ranked just because they beat a badly coached Vols team. Tennessee lost that game. What a joke for Oregon to be still ranked. They lost by almost 40 points. These polls are a joke!!!!

I agree. And the Dolphins would probably be best served by using their first, second, and third round picks next year on their non-existent offensive line. That said, two problems:

1) They have a lot of money tied up already in a non-TD producing position.

2) They've spent A LOT of resources drafting offensive linemen in the last 15 years:

Miami Dolphins offensive Line picks since 2000:
2000: (1) Todd Wade (2nd Rd)
2001: (2) Shawn Draper (6th), Brandon Winey (6th Rd)
2002: (1) Seth McKinney (3rd Rd)
2003: (2) Wade Smith (3rd Rd), Taylor Whitley (3rd Rd)
2004: (3) V Carey (1st) R Hadnot (6th Rd), Pape (7th)
2005: (1) Anthony Alabai (5th Rd)
2006: (1) Joseph Toledo (6th Rd)
2007: (2) Samson Satele (2nd Rd), Drew Mormino (6th)
2008: (3) Jake Long (1st), Murphy (4th), Thomas (6th)
2009: (1) Andrew Gardner (6th)
2010: (1) John Jerry (3rd)
2011: (1) Mike Pouncey (1st)
2012: (1) Jonathan Martin (2nd)
2013: (1) Dallas Thomas (3rd)
2014: (2) Ja'Wuan James (1st), Billy Turner(3rd)
2015: (1) Jamil Douglas (4th)

So in the last five seasons alone, Miami has spent the following on the OL:

1st Round: 2
2nd Round: 1
3rd Round: 3
4th Round: 2

Compare that to the New England Patriots

2000: (2) Adrian Clemm (2nd), Greg Randle (4th)
2001: (2) Matt Lyght (2nd), Kenyatta Jones (4th)
2002: None
2003: (1) Dan Koppen (5th)
2004: None
2005: (2) Logan Mankins (1st Rd), Nick Kazcur (3rd)
2006: (2) Ryan O'Callaghan (5th), Stevenson (6th)
2007: (2) Clint Oldenburg (5th), Mike Elgin (7th Rd)
2008: None
2009: (4) Vollmer (2nd) , Ornberger (4th), Bussey (5th), Ingram (6th)
2010: (2) Ted Larson (6th Rd), Thomas Welch (7th)
2011: (2) Nate Solder (1st Rd), M Cannon (5th)
2012: None
2013: None
2014: Bryan Stork (4th), Cameron Fleming (4th), Jon Halapio (6th)
2015: Tre' Jackson (4th), Shaq Mason (4th)

So in the same time period, New England takes:

1st Round: None
2nd Round: None
3rd Round: None
4th Round: 4
6th Round: 1

I honestly believe any Top 45-50 with a talented offense led by a good QB team can beat any ranked team on a given Saturday.

Scratch that.....297 now!!!!

CoCane

My Dolphins suck azz because of personel decisions like this...

They traded down to draft a underachieving DT from Oklahoma in the 2nd rd, instead of Denzel Perryman. Even though they needed a LB baaad, DP was the best available and they had already signed Suh.

If that ain't stupid, I don't know what is. Lol

Posted by: Go Canes | September 27, 2015 at 12:53 PM

Ok, in all seriousness...

I could really give a rat's you know what about other teams and how they perform week end and week out. The same team never shows up the next week. They either get better, get worse or flop when they should of flipped.

Just win a coastal and I'll shut up. 24 points, 8 minutes. Coaching. []_[]

P.S. Didn't you play the "look around CFB" card last year, too?
