The Dolphins kicked the tires on veteran safeties James Ihedigbo, Sergio Brown and Major Wright on Tuesday as they tried to fill out the position with Reshad Jones done for the season with a shoulder injury.
They’ll be adding a veteran safety to the roster, but it won’t be any of those three men. Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that Bacarri Rambo will be the new addition to the Dolphins secondary.
Rambo was a sixth-round pick by the Redskins in 2013 and played 13 games for them over his first two seasons before moving on to the Bills. Rambo played 15 games and started eight times for Buffalo last season. He had 62 tackles, a sack, an interception and two forced fumbles with the interception and both forced fumbles coming in a November win over the Jets. Rambo was named the AFC defensive player of the week for that effort.
While know one knows when Phil “CM Punk” Brooks will make his UFC debut, it looks as though the former WWE champion has been sidelined for a bit.
ESPN is reporting that Punk (0-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) suffered an injury to his shoulder during training, which should will put the 36-year-old on the shelf for a month.
“He got caught in a scramble, so right now he’s taking a little time off,” trainer Duke Roufus told ESPN.com when discussing Punk’s injury. “He was doing great before that. His progress has been good. He’s got a great attitude and he’s a hard worker. He got a place in Milwaukee where he lives all week when he’s here training, so he’s in it to win it.”
Roufus went on to state that they feel the highly-anticipated will come next spring, with at least three months of promotional lead-time after announcing his opponent.
With the Miami Dolphins at 1-3 and firing coach Joe Philbin my attention has shifted to my Miami heat as I can’t get excited about us losing . This team features a healthy Chris Bosh a healthy D wade and young stars in Grogic , Whiteside and the rookie Winslow . The bench is as deep as its ever been and if by chance Amare Stoutamire can stay healthy this team is certainly a top 2 seed threatening hard for the #1 spot ! Lebron James has to be looking at what Miami has assembled and he can’t be happy about it in fact if you line the Heat up vs the Cavs a lot of the match ups favor the Heat . But as usual the X factor will be Dwayne Wade and his health this will make this team a 65 game winner and a second seed or a 47 win team an uncertain playoff future . With all the new additions Dwade is still the #1 scoring option and to be honest it scares me ! Yes this team is deep yes its talented but still this team rides on the Aging Wheels of Dwayne Wade and that should Scare every heat fan .
At 1-2 To say the Miami Dolphins 2015 season start has been disappointing would be an understatement . I came into this season predicting 10-11 wins but 3 games in Im starting to look forward to the 2015 NFL draft . Our secondary Looks as bad as it did last year , the D line which was suppose to be the biggest upgrade is not . the offense looks terrible the Oline cant block , the running backs cant find holes and in Greg Jennings case the wide receivers cant catch . I cant put my finger on who to blame ! The coaching is certainly not the best but I cant imagine that the coaches are coaching the Defensive ends to not get pressure at all . I can’t imagine the game plan is to not protect Ryan Tannenhill So I have to place the blame over the whole team collectively . This whole 2015 Miami Dolphins team is terrible now the great thing is that can all change in a few games ! Want a good example look at the super bowl champs from last year . Every one wrote them off after that beat down from the chiefs the line was awful brady was getting whacked and the d looked bad . They shaped up and went on to beat the seahawks in the superbowl . So maybe im just being a Die hard fan to think why not us ? Why cant we get on an 8 winning streak ? Why cant juice and Parker start killing defenses . Why cant vernon and wake start getting pressure and Killing qbs ! Why not Why not the Phins ! why not 2015
Probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made was walking away from this life and starting over. I’m still ashamed for staying as long as I did. #domesticviolenceawareness
Judging by her caption, this wasn’t a one-time deal; however, it’s important to note that Browne has not been charged with any crime and is of course, innocent until proven guilty.
Webb, a well-known fitness model, hasn’t confirmed whether or not she will press criminal chargers against Browne, who she later named in the social media post as her alleged abuser.
Kearse, on the first drive of overtime, caught a 35-yard touchdown from Russell Wilson to give the Seahawks their second straight NFC title. The Seahawks, who looked dead with just a few minutes left in regulation on Sunday afternoon, defeated the Green Bay Packers, 28-22, in one of the greatest playoff games in NFL history.
Wilson, who had just hit Doug Baldwin for a big third-down conversion into Packers territory, lofted a pass to Kearse, who beat Tramon Williams and caught the pass with Williams draped all over him for the score.
That capped off a miracle comeback for Seattle. Cameras caught Wilson weeping after the game. It was that kind of win.
Marshawn Lynch’s 24-yard touchdown run with 1:25 left gave the Seahawks a lead after they looked all but buried just a few minutes before. When safety Morgan Burnett picked off Russell Wilson with about five minutes left, he strangely slid down like the game was over even though he had plenty of room to run. Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, mobbed him on the ground in celebration. And, in fairness, it did seem like it was over. The Packers led 19-7 and had dominated up to that point.
Then Seattle’s offense, which had been ineffective most of the game, came alive. Russell Wilson, who finished with four interceptions, hit Marshawn Lynch for a long pass down to the 9-yard line. Wilson scored on a 1-yard touchdown with 2:09 left. Still, Seattle needed something out of the ordinary to happen.
Then came the onside kick. Packers tight end Brandon Bostick went up for the onside kick and couldn’t bring it in. The Seahawks recovered, and all of a sudden they had the ball needing a touchdown to take the lead on their quest for a second straight NFC championship.
Lynch, who has done so much during this Seahawks run the past few years, gave Seattle the lead. He ran off left tackle into a huge hole, and it was clear immediately he was going to score. He strolled the final few yards in, then Wilson hit tight end Luke Willson for an incredible two-point conversion to put the Seahawks ahead 22-19.
The Packers still weren’t done, not with three timeouts and quarterback Aaron Rodgers Green Bay then pulled off their own great comeback.
Rodgers hit a couple of quick passes, then limped on a bad calf for a first down at Seattle’s 36-yard line. The Packers picked up 6 more yards on a completion to Jordy Nelson to set up Mason Crosby for a game-tying field goal. He drilled a 48-yard field goal with 14 seconds left to send the game to overtime.
The Packers and Rodgers never got the ball in overtime. Wilson and Kearse made sure of it.
The hopes of the patriots this week end will rest on the right arm of one Tom Brady . After completely going away from the run on last week in the divisional round of the playoffs the Pats have to expect to do the same this week as well . Last time these two teams met the Colts where ran off the field by a running back most fans had never heard of . Since then the Colt defense has improved and played much better run defense . But in order for the colts to make it to the superbowl the colt defense must make brady uncomfortable in the pocket . This needs to happen up the middle or the “A ” gap
Too many teams attempt to bring pressure on the edges Brady is ok with stepping up in the pocket and allowing the ends to be pushed around him or going into the middle of the field but moving lateral to the line of scrimmage is a problem for brady. Sitting back just watching film I notice that nearly 95% of the time Brady had “A” Pressure the play ended in either an incomplete pass or turnover
