Thursday Update - The Saints Are Coming

Updates throughout the day, so check back often:
  • The TV listings have changed since yesterday.  The announcers will be Dick Stockton and Charles Davis.  Here are the locations that will be airing the Dolphins game on Sunday evening on Fox:  Eastern Maine and Western New Brunswick, Canada;  Buffalo, New York;  Patriots Country, i.e. Eastern Mass and Southern New Hampshire/Vermont;  the entire state of Florida EXCEPT for Tallahassee area;  90% of Louisiana;  95% of Mississippi; and Southwest Alabama (Mobile area)I will update with any changes.
  • Matt Roth is injured just one day after returning to practice.  According to reports, Roth is present but not practicing and has his ankle taped up and is limping.
  • When asked who would be returning kickoffs, Coach Sparano replied, "Not telling you.  You'll just have to see at the game."
  • On the Saints being undefeated, Channing Crowder said, "They're undefeated, they're probably smelling themselves, rubbing each other's balls, all that shit..."
  • Saints LB Scott Fujita and CB Malcolm Jenkins looking less likely to play on Sunday.  Both did not participate in today's practice.  Jenkins has been out for a while, but the big drop-off is in not having Fujita on the field. 
  • Mike Berardino thinks you're all lazy and stupid despite his lazy reports and stupid attempts at naming everything.  BTW, Mike, the Porter-Taylor-Wake alignment (Tri-rail?) that you write about, doesn't exist.  They have not all been on the field together at the same time, and Cam Wake barely got any snaps in the games when Porter was active.
  • Omar Kelly thinks the O-line should be called the Wildebeests.  Besides this being ill-timed the name itself makes little sense.  For one, it doesn't sound very intimidating.  Wildebeests are like nature's free sample tray at Costco.  They're begging to be eaten and ARE eaten by just about every predator in Africa.  Crocodiles....Lions....Hyenas....Vultures....Humans....Tse Tse flies...etc.  But back to the name itself.  I get the 'beest' part because it sounds like, and actually translates to 'BEAST' which is a football cliche already.  But 'wilde' is pronounced 'will-duh', which doesn't even match up with the WILD-cat.  I have many better suggestions but I have a sudden desire to eat a Wildebeest so I have to get going....

  1. Tin, Greetings!

    Do you have sunday ticket? I'm about 2500 miles away from my sat tv and forced to watch Denver, Dallas and whatever the locals decide to show. Sucks! Won't be home 'til the Bucs game.

    ReplyDelete
  2. No, I don't have Sunday Ticket...was going to get it but then I had plans to
    move this month and it didn't seem like good value at the time. As it is
    now, my job is keeping me in Sacto a couple months longer than I planned to
    be here.
    I'll have the feed up here on the blog.

  11. Roth had one day of contact against a good OL that has been going at it full throttle for about two months, he wasn't going to come away from that unscathed! He was projected to get his first action against the Jets in 10 days so there is no cause for alarm, yet!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well we were planning on moving before I got the job, also after I got the
    job. Then the economy exploded. At this point since there isn't a job
    waiting for me in Sacramento, I might as well be unemployed elsewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  13. canam, there was cause for alarm on Roth months ago when he couldn't make it
    on the practice fields in pre-season.

  17. That's what the government agency we're building for is trying to do, they
    keep changing the procedures and adding more bureaucracy and paperwork to
    the project trying to delay the completion.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I used to audit construction projects for a company, chemicals and plastics, and our construction projects would always reach 95% completion and could never seem to get past that point. 

    Now, ironically, I'm in a different chemicals and plastics industry!

    ReplyDelete
  19. You're also in a different 'construction' industry!

    ReplyDelete
  20. and one in which the construction is much much more appreciated to men.  one were can see the delicate beauty of such wonderful construction and can just spend hours upon hours admiring such constructions not only with our eyes but our hands too.  hell some of us have been known to admire the construction so much the we adorn it with kisses

    ReplyDelete
  21. FFR, not to step on your slightly disturbing point but I think your average
    man actually is more into heavy construction than breast implants which is
    more of an acquired taste. We learn to love the boobs, but we're born
    loving trucks and cranes and building stuff. Well, most of us are.

    Did somebody say something?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Knew I wasn't the only one in construction and out of work......

    Really disappointed in Roth limping around, but I'm probably putting too much stock in his return having an immediate impact.  Sparono tends to be conservative with player rotation, so he probably had no intention of activating him for St.'s game.  Watching some of the Saint's Jets game and some of those throws by Brees could have easily been picks.  Maybe we make Brees look like Trent Edwards?

  29. "Watching some of the Saint's Jets game and some of those throws by Brees
    could have easily been picks. Maybe we make Brees look like Trent Edwards?"
    Considering Edwards is injured and not playing, that would be to our
    advantage. Like I said in the article, Brees does take risks and throws to
    receivers who are well covered because he's confident they will win their
    individual matchups. A couple of those throws would be deflections with
    Sean Smith's reach.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I was reviewing the schedule that Tin was so kind enough to post on his blog and noticed that our schedule doesn't appear to be as scarey as it once did at the beginning of the year.

    I think we can make a pretty good run and this game coming up can really set the tone going forward.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The first one. We have bidding on a lot of jobs lately and not even coming
    close. The kind of jobs we tend to be low bidder on are the kind that don't
    get planned when the state is $40 billion in debt.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The schedule is even less scary considering we have zero players on the
    injury report, and everyone else is starting to break down early.

    With the exception of a few players, the Parcells' offseason conditioning program seems to be paying off as far as this team staying healthy. I can't remember a time when the Dolphins were so healthy back to back years.

  39. Am I the only one to see the smoke screen here? Roth has his ankle taped up and is limping and Sparano won't say who's on return duty. He no more has a limp than he had a groin strain - he's secretly been practising returning kicks to the house in that ball cap ever since pre-season and just like everyone remembers the Pats game for it being the turning point of the season last year, they'll recall the game that the elusive Matt "night-train" Roth was unleashed on the NFL. Anything less than 2 returns for a TD on Sunday and he's a bust!
    Tin, did you see the game?
    Also, do you put your clocks back in the US this weekend? We do here, but I seem to remember we were a weekend or two ahead of the US last year?

    drive into cities, and on any paved roads....oh, and if you have a decent
    job you don't get the free housing. But you can have birth all you want and
    have all the surgery you want for free.

  67. Knight, look at it this way, when you pay your taxes, does the government
    give you anything for it?
    When the brits pay their taxes, they get healthcare back for it, and not
    just while they're working, but for life. That's why it's free, because the
    government has no obligation to provide healthcare to its people.

  75. Did you read Armando's 'in depth' blog about the Saints run defense?
    He claims that despite their ranking as the 5th best run defense, they suck
    at defending the run. Then he hand picks stats to back up his theory,
    abandoning the stats that don't. What he fails to do, is to then do the
    exact same thing with Miami's run offense. I haven't done this (and am not
    going to) but I'd bet money on the Dolphins rush yard average going UP as
    the game went on and more carries accrued.
    Next thing he'll be saying that Brees is a terrible 4th quarter QB, because
    the numbers show his yardage dips considerably towards the end of the game.

Charlie had a fiasco sham of a marriage, Andrew is a playboy who got involved with Koo Stark (+ etc) and Anne and Edward are wierd at best. Even the Duke of Edinburgh is off his box. They bring in a shed load of tourists, but support of the monarchy is on the wane. There will always be die-hards who keep up the tradition though. I don't think William and Harry have the stomach for it either.

  79. The Knight who says Ni!October 22, 2009 at 1:25 PM

    No obligation but it's voted for by representatives so the British people decided they want a National Healthcare system paid for through taxes. It's still not 'free'. Our government in the US gives away plenty of entitlements to people who don't pay for it. That's the new American way. Get in line and suckle off the big hog. Don't worry, people who have worked hard to earn that money will pay for it.

  115. Well I'll cast a vote of hmmmm, I don't know!  Like most things, there are 2 sides to the story, each told by a biased participant in whatever happened.  Obviously something happened, the guys jaw was broken. Was it a hit, a shove and he fell breaking his jaw.  Either way, there had to be some kind of contact.  Even with no criminal charges, you know there will be a civil suit, damages awarded or a settlement, which would have to make Cable a liability to an already out of control team.  Time for CSI:NFL

  120. The weird thing is that they questioned the assistant FOUR times during the
    'investigation'. Surely if the story was as simple as he had his feet on
    the table, there was some ruckus and he fell over in the chair and smacked
    his face on another table/chair, they would've gotten that the first time
    around.

    Torres and Gerrard are doubtful for L'pool and Roon and Fletch are doubtful for Utd. I read the L'pool pair will have a fitness test Sunday morning. Not sure about our lads. Probably the same.
    If Roon doesn't play, Owen may take the field. Now THAT will be fun to watch, especially at Anfield!

    let me down this time. I'll watch it tonight.
    Did you see the story on the Pats traveling to London? Wes Welker made fun
    of Tom Brady for wearing a suit on the plane. Brady said he wouldn't take
    fashion advice from Welker. Fashion advice? you're going on an 8 hour
    flight overnight and are going to arrive at 5am. Wear something
    comfortable, you twat! It has nothing to do with fashion...unless you're
    trying to outdo Mark Sanchez for the crown of the AFC East's biggest tool.

  128. My opinion of Brady juist went further down!
    I want Wes back. He always was one of my fave fins. I used to defend him against naysayers like Knight defends TGJ!

  129. Knight - do you think the lion with the entrails in it's mouth looks a tad nervous? As if the Wildebeest is about to pull a "clock-play" on it? LMAO

    LOL

    The naming of the Oline at this time is just goofy. You name a group when they've had a body of work and success for years like the Hogs or the Killer Bs or the Orange Crush or the Steel Curtain or the Purple People Eaters. Not after 5 games and a 2-3 record. LOL

  132. It's just lazy reporting. Can't think of anything to write about, or can't
    pick up a phone and get an interview, so I'll sit in the corner and
    brainstorm with myself.

  139. more proof of goodell's love of his cheatroits.  the bucs are leaving today for england, the cheats left yesterday why?  well the nfl set when the teams were to leave.  you see they are experimenting on the difference between two or three days to acclimate.  now, isnt it just sssoooooo f-ing funny how the pats get more time to adjust to the time zone differences then the bucs do.

  143. <span style="color: #888888;">ffr, not sure there's any time zone issues, because the game is at 7pm uk time i believe, which is the same time they'd be playing anyway.</span> The real reason the Pats went early is that Brady needed an extra day to get his suit pressed.

    The NFL doesn't decide when the teams go, the teams do.  They both could have held all their practices in London if they chose to.  The Pats traveled at night to avoid missing practice.  The Bucs chose to miss a practice AND to take advice from the Glazers.  No wonder they suck.

    American or Japanese made one...

  148. uk, for some reason I thought the Glazers had sold United. How is it
    possible to have the same person run two distinctly opposite clubs?

    ReplyDelete
  149. ok, not sure how you two missed the fact that my point was, goodell and the nfl gave the better of the 'experiment' to the cheatriots.  not sure how you two turned that into me being a buc fan.  and for what it is worth, i would think this week we are all buc fans.  not that they have a chance in hell.

    ReplyDelete
  150. ffr, the point is, the NFL didn't choose who got to go first. The teams are
    allowed to go on Tuesday if they want to, but both chose to go later.
    I also think you are a closet Bucs fan (just saying that to piss you off)!

    ReplyDelete
  151. Because you always talk about hating the Bucs.  And as a hater that rant of yours should have gone more like this:

    <span>finally sum use ofr goodell's love of his cheatroits.  the bucs are leaving today for england, the cheats left yesterday why?  well the nfl set when the teams were to leave.  you see they are experimenting on the difference between two or three days to acclimate.  now, isnt it just sssoooooo f-ing funny how the pats get more time to adjust to the time zone differences then the bucs do.  i htae the f-ing bucs.

    See?  Subtle but obvious difference.

  152. tin,

    not according to what is being reported by the bucs and on local radio.  the nfl set their schedules cause they want to see how the time change has an effect on leaving a day later. 


    not sure you could call me anything on a blog and get me pissed off.  oh wait, i know, you can say my leabian cheerleaders are buc cheerleaders LOL

    ReplyDelete
  153. The Glazers own United, but I think "running" the club might be a bit overstating it? I think they are fans with lots of money and I'm sure they have control of the purse strings,  but operationally, I think they listen but don't interfere. That's why United are still winning!!!

  158. ffr, i posted a link to a tampa based article that says otherwise, plus if
    you go to the teams websites they say they chose when to travel. Because of
    logistics and costs the teams tend to stay home till the last minute, but as
    you'll see in my new article, the dolphins went early went they played.
