Wasn't Vernon the guy that cost the 49ers the game by going to the bench after he and the left tackle knocked porter on his a/ss most of the game until that one play in which Joey sacked the QB. I fVernon stays in you losers are 10-6 and New England is AFC chumps!
Yeah, the 49ers kicked you losers all over the place won in every category and then for some reason took davis out.
Porter couldn't sack a potato after that because teams started using a tackle and a tight end. Joey ain't good enough to beat two players.
Baltimore did the same thing and Joey got shutout while Baltimore sacked Pennington like a rag doll. Sack,interception,sack interception NOW the Jets have Ellis 8 sacks, Pace 7 sacks and Bart and the master Rex RYAN. When we play you awfulins, it'll be Hut,hut! SACK!!!! and you'll need Henne cause Pennington will need smelling salts! hahahahahahahahaarg!

Thank you, Harvey, for this article... I truly mean it!

Let me address Vontae's biggest issue, character flaws, as posted by many bloggers and fans of our Miami Dolphins...

The Tuna will "WHOOP" this guy into a class act, alright? He's a cover corner who WILL excel at the NFL level. He has the speed, the size, and the tackling ability that the Tuna prefers. His athleticism at CB is unprecedented in the last several NFL drafts. This guy could become the next Champ Bailey, IMHO.

Our O-line is SOLID, our D-line is damn near solid, but our CBs suck after Will Allen... who will most likely be gone after next season.

I hope the Tuna actually tells Vontae to shoot his mouth off to deter others from taking him prior to our R1P25.

WE NEED THIS GUY. GO PHINS!!!

Perhaps you should consider getting a pet. You seem to have a dying desire to have something sniffing your balls and a dog would be the perfect selection. How do you spell it.....agggggght?

Yeah the jets did much better against SF:
QB. 20/31 137yard 1 int 3 sacks.
HB's. 52 total yards

Final: jet's 14 -- SF 24
looks like 1st quarter stats; I think it looks like the annoying jets are the team that got manhandled.

miami to trade up to get him.

You losers need two shutdown corners, the two ragmuffins you got and Jason can't find the ball Allen ain't gonna get it done.
Your team was never any good at stoppin the pass.
Laverneus coles and wayne chrebet use to eat Surtain and madison "alive" and they were supposedly the best yoo losers can come up with.
Buuuurp!

To Jets fan - You are in another zone - you need to move back to new york so you can be happy again - there you can run your mouth about ny and your jets, drink your beer and run your mouth some more. Dolphins fans and people in South Florida are tried of you running your mouth off - you need to take your attitude back to ny where you belong!

If you check the record you had them at home.
Lets look get the facts straight because you losers have a way of stretching things a bit.
Put on your glasses and check this out.
We played san fran, seattle,oakland, and san diego on the west coat while you losers had them at home...all 4 teams had to travel to your house.
Do you know how hard it is to travel to the west coast and win all for games?
Reads this>Western teams are a combined 0-9 when they play in the Eastern Time Zone. Of those nine games, eight were played at 1:00 p.m. ET. The Raiders-Ravens and Cardinals-Panthers games on Sunday will both be at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Seattle has lost at Buffalo, NY Giants and Tampa Bay. San Diego lost at Buffalo and Miami. Arizona lost at Washington and NY Jets. San Francisco lost at the Giants. Oakland lost at Buffalo. If you want to add Denver as a western team, they lost in their one trip east (in New England on Monday night).

So is it the travel or the time of the game?

I can see the gripe about the time of the game. A game that starts at 1:00 p.m. ET feels like 10:00 a.m. to a team from the Pacific Time Zone. It isn't like teams spend a ton of time in these eastern cities to adjust their bodies to the time zone.

Of course, Arizona did try to change that. After their Week 3 loss to the Washington Redskins, the Cardinals decided to stay out east in order to prepare themselves for the New York Jets. They were promptly spanked.
The only west coast team you played at thier house was Arizona which kicked your as/s sideways.
I'm really tired of hearing you Awfulins bullshiit about the same schedule and all that crap. You had the easiest schedule and benefited from the buffalo game bieng in Canada. So suck it up for once and accept the freekin facts!
Every playoff team could have kicked your Butt.
We had nothin to play for and Farve should've been pulled so we gave you losers the game.
I'm sure alot of Jets were pulling for thier boy Pennington in that game. See what happens this year.What dumba/ss!

I would love Davis he would be the ideal pick at #25 but I do not think he will be there at #25. If he falls past the saints he will get scooped up by the pats at #23. A more realistic pick would be Matthews, English, Sintim(I think we can get him in the 2nd rd) or maybe Maybin. I hope Davis falls in or lap but I will not have my hopes up. I think we can get Butler, DJ Moore, or A Smith with the #44th pick we got from WAS. One of those guys will be there for sure if not M Mickens or V Harris will be there at #56 in the 2nd rd.
