    Sorry anyone blaming this on Ireland is clueless. He's supposed to know who uses PED's now? Seriously. You guys kill me.

    I could be wrong. I thought first offense was not announced.

    Call me crazy but I don't think Pouncey is a huge loss. IMO A center will never be the difference between winning and losing, if we find an average replacement we will be fine. Not to say you don't want a great center, but if I'm going to lose a starter and plug in an average backup its one of my first positions of choice.

    I'm sorry for putting you into the same box as folks calling him a loser, or that he's a bust, or that They have lost respect for him..

    Im defending against that level of reaction, because we don't know the intentions or anything resembling a circumstance..

    Just came on...WOW!! Suprised?...a little..totally...NO!. FFS! My Dolphin fan journey just took another speed bump in the traffic war of total mediocrity. Serious question??....when is this BS ever going to end,???..there are only 31 other teams....Bucs won a SB in recent yrs yes? Its getting beyond p**s poor now. I will revoke my Dolphin fan club membership when I can fathom why we are so average and are so expert when it comes to self destructing. Well??? P.s I love my Phins...that won't change. Ever. I'm just fed up off this crap. Its becoming the norm.

    This team was never going 10-6. If you think the center and the third pass rusher are responsible for 2 wins, it actually means the roster is pretty thin.

    I agree that a player doesn't have to start to have an impact on the game. I just have never felt that Jordan is going to be an impact defensive player in the NFL and I felt that way before he was suspended.

    Perhaps he will return and prove he is capable of being a quality NFL defensive end, but I'll believe it only when I see it on the field. Right now he can't be counted on for the first four games of the season and I really don't think the Dolphins will miss him one bit during those games. They have other backup defensive ends who can come in and provide the same type of play Jordan does as a backup.

    And if anyone wants to question me being p****d off with our 2nd coming of the next Jason Taylor after he was given an easy ride last season and the same #99 apparently coached him then please step up and argue the toss with me because you will lose. That's a fact. Seriously...bring it!. What brain cells do these clueless so called professionals posess to warrant them being called 'sportsmen'.? The Dolphins are a team that are not taken Seriously by a comment from another teams DC and the next day by its own 1st round draft pick from 2013. What does it take to make my team of 30yrs to stop screwing up? Unreal. Yet its happening.

    Damn it..this sucks....piss ***..

    Ok, lets see, Vern looks to be bigger and better this year, Shelby has been training with Wake all offseason, Philbin has to hold down this fort..he's gonna have to inspire his men to come out like crazed dogs in the first quarter of the season..

    He needs to get this team to find it's juice.

    We really will have to see it play out I suppose, while I do agree that replacing four lineman was going to be tough chemistry wise you have to admit each position -should- be greatly upgraded from what we had a year ago. That alone could result in better play even without Pouncey.

    As a side note, I might be visiting Seattle in a few months :lol:

    I agree. I thought this was an 8-8 or 7-9 team prior to the injury to Pouncey. I think the loss of Pouncey could possibly mean this is now a 6-10 team because he was the one solid player in the middle of the OL. I think losing him is a huge negative for the OL.

    As far as losing Jordan for four games is concerned. No big deal, IMO.

    When are we a team that's not in 'rebuild' mode? When did Marino retire? Someone remind me. The Ireland haters are throwing a party right now. The Eagles Front Office dodged a bullet going by their reported interest in Jordan. Sigh...

    Maybe I'm overboard deej but its like one step forward, 2 steps back. I'm getting down with the constant bs my team is giving me. I have high hopes and believed in DJ from Draft day but with the Morino, Pouncey news and now this....Dion Jordan!!....the last player I actually expected to screw up before a ball was snapped...guess what?!?! I used to be thick skinned...used to be.

    Never? Really? This team easily has the ability to go 10-6.

    You learn a lot about people when they are hit with bad news. Everyone who posted on the first page looks really bad.

    Drafted far too high, feels the pressure, uses an enhancer to bridge the gap...Irelands fault.

    For the record. Jordan can/maybe /will be a future Pro Bowler. I've had his back 110%. He now does not have my total confidence and support. He screwed up (fact) so I'm allowed digression and the doubt from now on. He had better back up his statement. 4 games? 4 games he could have made a difference.

    Eagles obviously know what they were doing then showing interest in Jordan then going by their track record then yes? You do know you just amplified my statement and enforced it with your proof? P.s nice post. Good research.

    1st offense is not reported or released. 4 game suspension is second offense.

    This is extremely disappointing. Mistakes happen, but you're a paid professional athlete. You should know what you're putting in your body and ensure you aren't taking anything that might put you and your team in jeopardy. No excuses. Hope he learns from this and it doesn't happen again.

    According to reports, the Eagles wanted to draft Jordan, then prior to this draft wanted to trade for him again. He has rare skillsets as he can play a variety of positions and drop into coverage and not be a liability. When healthy, he is a game changer. He impacted several games positively for us last season even though he was injured, recovering from surgery, and limited. Coyles has to be the most disappointed of anyone.

    Regardless of losing Pouncey and Jordan, we should be no worse than 2-2 and heading into the week 5 BYE. Jordan will be back for game 6 when we face the Packers at home.

    And to this point, Jordan's side has been, "I ****ed up, I'm not appealing". He isn't even trying to defend his actions.

    Sometimes athletes take supplements they don't realize are banned. Not saying this is the case, and even if it is it is HIS fault. I dont think its fair to label him a cheater when we dont even know what he did.

    It's funny, I just saw this from TheDrawPlay earlier today and thought how true it was. Apparently, thanks to Dion, it is also true in the offseason as well. :/

    Uhmm, neither are stimulants, so that is a pretty safe guess. With so many newer and more easily masked anabolic steroids on the market these days, world class pro athletes would have to be pretty dumb to bother with relative dinosaurs like Deca or Winstrol anyway.
