So obviously Clarke isn't the only one who's seen this bleep with the Pats. Actually The New York Football Giants(As Howard COsell used to say) were the first to hang one on the Pats(In the Super Bowl) beating them by rushing Brady hard substituting pass rushers to keep them fresh.

So that's probably why Ireland opted to go for Dion Jordan after we traded up to the 3 slot. So Dion Jordan is our #2 Anti Brady missile(Wake being the #1).  If Jordan turns out to be a bust and I sure hope he doesn't but if he does that has to be the end of Ireland. He'll never live that down.

The thing is.... The Pats ran the ball down our throats last year in the second game. Ponder THAT!

Ryan Clark(Steelers CB): Tom Brady 'sees ghosts'

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark said Monday on ESPN's "NFL Live" that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady "sees ghosts" when defenses are able to bump his receivers and keep him under pressure.

Walker: Clark's Evaluation Has Merit

Walker Numbers don't lie and neither does game film, so Ryan Clark has a strong point when he says Tom Brady "sees ghosts" in the pocket, writes James Walker. Blog

Clark, working this week in Bristol, Conn., as a guest analyst, made his comments when asked how vulnerable the Patriots are given the offseason loss of Wes Welker.

Clark said the key to playing the Patriots is keeping pressure on Brady.

"In 2010, we saw it start with the Jets in the playoffs," he said. "When Tom Brady gets pressure and when you're man-to-man and bumping those guys and making it hard for him to throw, he sees ghosts.

"Even when guys aren't around him, even when he's not about to be sacked, when his clock goes off in his head that the ball should be out, we'll see him duck, we'll see him flinch. When you get Tom Brady doing that, the whole New England Patriots mystique goes away."

Clark was then asked what the game plan was when the Steelers played the Patriots.

The Haunting of Tom Brady

The longer Tom Brady spends in the pocket, the less effective he is. Last season, he had an 81.1 Total QBR when in the pocket for less than three seconds and a 59.7 Total QBR when in the pocket for three or more seconds. A look at Brady by time in the pocket in 2012:

Category    Under 3 seconds    3 or more
Comp. pct.    68.2    42.3
Total QBR    81.1    59.7
Sack pct.*    1.8    11.8
*Sacks per drop-back

"I'll be honest, the years we tried to go in there and fire zone and play Tom Brady in that way, he was able to pick us apart. In that, you're not overloading the offense -- one-on-one rushes, only rushing five, so he's able to find places to go," Clark said.

"Two years ago we played them and dominated them because we went man-to-man and had a big corner in Cortez Allen on [Rob] Gronkowski, and made it hard for Tom Brady to get the ball off, in timing, and made him to have to make plays. It was hard for him."

Clark said the Patriots' loss of Welker is "huge."

"I know they think Danny Amendola can come in and have the same type of numbers he had with the Rams, but we also have to remember, he's fragile," he said. "He's not a guy who has completed a whole season, especially playing inside in what can be a physical AFC East. You also think about Gronkowski and the injury; that is going to be bigger than anything for the New England Patriots coming in this year. Also Aaron Hernandez "

Thanks Chuck. Yeah I registered for the support forum and made a post backing you up Pizza. Hopefully they'll grant your wishes. I mean WHY WOULDN'T THEY? Any one can go there and look at West Tex's posting history and deduce that his posting frequency just STOPS. And vavoom no more posts or appearances at all. He has to be deceased. Has to be.

Hey Chuck I went over there and registered and backed you up. Yeah he(verm) had to have crossed over at some point. When I first started posting at Verms Hut it seemed to me that Verm had given Atlien Phin buttons over there. That was well before you came along. I'm not sure that they were buds though. He also may have been buds with Moe. You remember him right?

BTW Is there anything the Dolphins have done this current off season that you DO LIKE?

I was pretty miffed that we traded up then took Dion Jordan.... Honestly? I had never heard of him. If given my dithers and I had to pick a pass rushing specialist I'd have gone with Ansah from BYU but I didn't consider DE/OLB as important to this team as Left tackle or Cornerback.

As far as RB's go I was disappointed we let Bush go. Especially b/c we didn't get to see very much of Barry Sanders last year. Whoops! I meant Lamar Miller..... BTW I don't know what phins boards you go to but most fans at Phin boards ARE incurable homers.

The NFL Draft was completed less than 18 hours ago. That's plenty of time to grade the draft picks for all 32 teams. ESPN's Mel Kiper, Jr. did exactly that today, giving a grade for value, a grade for needs, and an overall grade for each team. How did he view the Miami Dolphins' 2013 Draft? Let's see.

    Miami Dolphins

    Top needs: DE, OT, CB, WR, FB
    Needs Gade: B
    Value Grade: C
    Overall grade: B-

    Summary: The Dolphins didn't give up a ton when they moved from No. 12 to No. 3. They sent a second-rounder to Oakland, and they had an extra one to give. They took the player they really wanted, which was Dion Jordan. I certainly can't call it a reach because Jordan is one of the top five players on my Big Board. He's a gifted athlete that can help their pass rush. But I can't totally disagree with Jon Gruden, who was critical of the move during our broadcast. I'm not sure you cast him in a 4-3 DE role, because he could be a physical liability against the run. But I don't think Miami will. They'll use plenty of sub packages and use Jordan opposite Cameron Wake, and try to make life hard for opposing quarterbacks. Jamar Taylor at No. 54 is a pretty good value for a player that can probably start. Dallas Thomas at No. 77 is a player Miami might actually think can start at left tackle. If so, good value. But I think he's likely more of a versatile backup. If he starts as a rookie, the Dolphins could have a tough time in pass protection. I'm a fan of Jelani Jenkins, who can cover really well for a linebacker. Dion Sims can't separate very well, but he's good depth at tight end. Caleb Sturgis being drafted could mean Dan Carpenter is out. They could get three good players from those first three picks, but they did give up value for Jordan, so the onus is on them to make that pick become a success.

I see that crazy Australian retired train engineer is at it again.  :o  But at least he isn't eat up with the dumbass like a certain other "verms hut" refugee I know who is extremely jaded when it comes to the Dolphins. ;D

Hey Jon Luc & Chuck! No I didn't see it coming EITHER. I, like the espn announcers thought we traded up to get Lane Johnson  to protect Tanneyhill's back side but NO! we pick a one dimensional pass rusher who is only 240 pounds and stands 6'6 plus he has a narrow shoulder problem. I know. We got him to bookend him and Cameron Wake and that should be awesome. If he doesn't turn out to be a bust somehow. I will pull for him that is for sure! He sounds well spoken and he is one heckuvan athlete as fearless Wanny used to say.

Bottom Line? I will keep my jury out deliberating for a while on this guy. See what the pro lifestyle with the extra time spent on weight training does to his 6' - 6" frame..... It is Saturday night & I still don't know what we got today except I know we got a Gator RB and a Gator placekicker. I know Carpy was hit and miss last year and cost us some games early on so we might elect to go with the young Gator K.

 Looks at the bait........

Sniffs the bait...... (sniff sniff) Smells like a chicken!

Nah Gah Dah it!         as G.H.W. Bush #41 would have mouthed. Not gonna do it!(Touch that flamer bait)

Maybe you should consider rooting for the Jets or Titans or Rams(with your Jeff Fisher as their coach)

Hey Peets!(Short for Pizza but if ya put "Hey Pizz" It don't sound right so Hey Peets!) Yeah I had a feeling Dansby wouldn't be kept when he made that big fuss after we cut Ocho Cinco. He was all right but nuttin spectacular. Plus he just didn't make enough big plays. 

I couldn't help it. I had to throw the "itinerant dingbat" in there

Dolphins owner and itinerant dingbat Steve Ross: 'We're not done'

By Omar Kelly, Staff writer

Steve Ross didn't become a billionaire sitting on his hands. This week alone the Miami Dolphins' owner has a couple of deals pending.

The Dolphins will become the first NFL team to put Wi-Fi throughout the entire stadium, and offer broadcasts of the games on cellphones.

The team is launching the new logo and jerseys in exactly a month.

Later this month Ross' sports enterprise will announce another major event he's holding at Sun Life Stadium. His camp is lobbying the Florida legislature and Miami voters for support of public funds for stadium renovations, which he hopes will attract Super Bowl L to South Florida.

And by the way, the Dolphins just so happen to be the most aggressive and active NFL team during free agency, remodeling the team's roster. And Ross warns "we're not done."

The Dolphins have already spent $185 million in total value of the deals luring five players, and re-signing five members of last year's team. Ross has guaranteed nine players $83.2 million on their new deals. And what scares the rest of the NFL is that Miami still has another $19-20 million to spend on free agents, and the team's 10 draft picks.

"You can't help but like what they've done," said one AFC coach, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "Mike Wallace and Dustin Keller are both scary players."

But Ross and General Manager Jeff Ireland, the architect behind Miami's makeover, will be the first to admit teams don't win championship based on the moves made in March.

"The only place it really matters is on the football field. We can all talk about it, but you've got to win," Ross said. "But you don't do it unless you've got the right ingredients. We're certainly going down that direction."

The addition of Wallace, a receiver who has scored 32 touchdowns in his first four seasons, and Keller, a tight end who has scored 17 touchdowns in his five seasons with the Jets, provides the Dolphins the weaponry needed to open up the west coast offense. Both players create mismatches that help the offense feed off their speed.

"You can see where the NFL is going. It is about speed, the passing game and explosiveness and excitement," Ross said. "We're developing that. I don't think we're done."

Ireland explained the linebacker sway, which saw Miami cut Karlos Dansby and Kevin Burnett and replace them with Dannell Ellerbe and Phillip Wheeler, by saying the defensive coaches aim to create "a more physical presence" on defense.

"They are younger," Ireland said. "They run exceptionally well and are very, very physical."

The Dolphins still need to address the offensive line, especially after the defection of former No.1 pick Jake Long, who signed a four-year deal reportedly worth $36 million with the Rams.

The Dolphins are also shopping for cornerback help, and additional pass rushing. There are a number of aged but experienced defensive ends Osi Umenyiora, Dwight Freeney, John Abraham, James Harrison, Elvis Dumervil still available, and the Dolphins have expressed interest in a few.

The Dolphins have taken minimal cap hits on the new additions to preserve space for more newcomers, and Ireland said that's by design. For explain, Wallace, who received a five-year, $60 million deal, only costs the team $3.2 million in cap space this season. But next year he'll account for $17.2 million.

That tricky distribution of his cap value would allow Miami to easily part ways with the receiver before the 2015 season if things turn sour. Most of Miami's deals have similar three-year structures, and Ireland acknowledged that's purposely done to create a three-year window for the team.

Ireland hinted the Dolphins will remain aggressive, and is exploring trades that could also improve the team's talent base.

"We've got contingencies upon contingencies upon contingencies trying to get the best players we can that are available," Ireland said. "We've got [10] draft picks coming up and dollars to advocate in free agency. We knew we had to be active. We're still trying to upgrade this football team.",0,1385268.story?track=rss

Oh and btw we picked up two compensatory draft picks in this years draft; one in the fifth and one in the seventh. Here's the link
