That whole Porter / Sapp exchange was so rehearsed.
What a waste of video , you want to know the state of the Dolphins ... right now it's not good , we know that , the media knows that & anyone with any football knowledge knows that. Dont waste our time with a guy with an agenda to tell us.
Let's see ... Yeremiah Bell is an aging veteran on the downswing of his career, and the Dolphins cut him due to his salary this year. I think anyone without their minds made up understand that Porter and Sapp are coming from an old player who doesn't have it any longer attitude. You have to push the old guys out at some point even when they are in denial. As far as Bell, I think he is still a very good player, but don't players usually know they have to renegotiate thing when they get into the last year of their contract? Bell thinks he is still one of the best at his position and felt he was being low-balled by Ireland.
As far as unpopularity, Joe Thomas took over the Baltimore Colts in the early 70s and traded away all the old greats on the team ... people he did not have any ties with. Fans hated him until he turned them into winners with Bert Jones and Lydell Mitchell.
It looks as if Dphins4me is correct in some respects ... the Dolphins are rebuilding. I do think they want to win as they replace players that aren't the future of this team. Normally you have the player all ready on the team via the draft to take over, so, we are doing things a little backwards here;) Looks like the rookies we draft will have to be starting.
