    Add in Johnson being waived, and we are looking at starting the season with a very young Wr corps.

    Apparently Karlos Dansby is wee-wee'd over Johnson being waived, yeah well.


    A single injury at the wrong time, even a minor one, can literally sink a career, this is one of the reasons why the NFL minor league makes sense to me.

    Dansby needs to get over it and focus on being a leader on D.

    Just occured to me, with Hartline being out, and Johnson being waived, who was the #3 wr on the depth chart?

    I thought it was BJ Cunningham or was it Marlon Moore? Either way there is now a job position open and not just theoritically.

    Move Bess out there and who then moves into the slot? Clay or Bush plays the slot in situations?

    I just saw Dansby and Coach talking off to the side in the bubble on NFL AM. Dansby had is arms firmly folded across his chest during the conversation. It'll be very interesting to see how this plays out with the team leaders.

    Philbin needs to remind Dansby that he has been nothing special and should be GREATFULL he is still being paid top 3 LB money.

    Cant wait to draft that dudes replacement.

    Well away from here
    Seems simple to me. It wasn't Dansby decision to make, so how he feels about it is irrelevant. Worry about doing your own job and let the coaches do theirs. Players play, coaches and front office people handle the roster. So now we need to ask if its alright if we cut a guy? Shut up and play or get the hell out of the way of the next guy who can play your position.

    If he's that bent out of shape about it, cut his *** and he can Chad can comiserate over a basket of chicken wings at Ruby Tuesday's.

    I like the decision to waive Johnson, I can guess why Dansby is REALLY unhappy.

    He sees the same Wr corps we do, he wants to win football games.

    Philbin dumping Johnson reminds me of something Shula would have done.

    Pruitt was second string slot, I believe. Cunningham behind him. But that was before the preseason game. Things shuffled a bit after the game, and Chads departure.

    The only concern I have with Philbin is his ability to create rapport with certain kinds of guys... Dansby may be one of them.

    Wooden, straight-laced dudes dot always click well with outgoing jester types. But you'd expect Dansby to be more pro than this. He better fall in line.

    I actually looked it up because I didn't think they had them, but they do. They call them 'fire wings:'
    Crisp chicken wings, in mild or hot Buffalo sauce.

    Maybe he is just echoing what all the players think about the situation. Pretty much what we all think of the situation, CJ got caught up in a situation with a known chick that has a history of physical attacks on people and he is partially or fully the victim. Wrongful dismissal, and by talking to Coach about it, he is indeed being a leader to the team, and the liaison between players and coach. Nothing wrong with that.

    If I'm Joe Philbin and I hear that Karlos Dansby is unhappy and chirping about my cutting Chad Johnson, I smile because I know I just sent a message and I just took a step toward changing the culture.

    I agree... But

    Karlos is a veteran and leader on that defense. If he shows it's okay to Publically question Philbins decisions, he sets a bad example that let's other defensive players feel more comfortable doing the same thing.

    I didn't hear anything about that. Agreed. All should be kept in house. With that being said, time to move forward and let it be.

    Personally, I hope they re-sign chad in the near future when the dust settles if the situation points to Chad being victimized by a crazy Eve. But that is just me.

    Dansby needs to work on his leadership skills..rule #1 is the team always comes first..CJ apparently felt differently..Dansby is on the wrong side of this.

    You know if this escalated with Dansby this week, I wouldn't be against Philbin reassertion control by playing Trusnik or Spitler with first unit and dropping Karlos to second unit.

    "Fall in line and don't question me on the damned radio! You bring that **** to me behind closed doors."

    "**** that coach." and Dansby rocks the boat more... I'd send a shot across his bow.

    So we can wind up with more drama?
    PASS 10 out of 10 times.

    The Dolphins got rid of 1 diva WR this offseason, they should have known what they were getting in to with Chad. With or without the wife beating it would have ended poorly. You could already see his attitude on Hard Knocks, which was the last thing a new regime needed. Let's rebuild this team the right way, not the fast way.

    Man, I cant believe Dansby is getting hate on here just b/c he didn’t like that CJ was cut. Its not like the guy is rebelling from the coaches, or refusing to work, or anything like that. He’s entitled to not be happy with the decision. It doesn’t matter that he isn’t happy with it… but he has every right not to agree with it. Players disagree with upper management’s personnel moves all the time. That doesn’t make Dansby a bad guy, or a bad player, or a bad teammate…

    I disagree with my company all the time. Instead of going on Twitter or Facebook to announce it, I deal with it in a professional manner.

    Dansby should STFU and focus on leading this D, which lost the only true leader in Y Bell.

    What attitude is that? By all accounts the guy is/was one of the hardest working guys. What he was doing on the field was great from an attitude standpoint, and all the players highlighted his ethic and such. Aside from the press conference, what other evidence do we have about his attitude? During the convo with Philbin, he said "this is my life, so I'm good" etc. It showed while he worked out all off season. It showed on the practice field, and his comments about "I dont give a f about my career" was furthest from the truth.

    Just a shame to see a guy that cares so much be so stupid during his initial press conference that ended up being his demise.

    Season starts in 23 days, Johnson won't be here, why is Dansby wasting time with it instead of prepping for the season?

    The 5 minutes of silence would have represented this organization and new coaching staff better. It would have proven that despite his difference of opinion, he still acts like a leader and supports his coach.

    Instead, he comes off as prick and is the person extending the drama here.

    By getting rid of a distraction, the Dolphins may have created an even bigger one.
    Middle linebacker Karlos Dansby, appearing on WMEN in Ft. Lauderdale with Sid Rosenberg, said that the leader of the team’s defense disagrees with the decision to cut receiver Chad Johnson loose.
    “It’s going to be a bigger distraction because we let him go,” Dansby said, via excerpts of the show disseminated by WMEN. “He didn’t get that third strike. That’s just me personally. . . . We’ve been through worse. We’ve seen worse.”

    But Johnson was on a one-strike arrangement. And it sounds like the coaching staff and/or front office didn’t do a good enough job explaining that to the team leaders when Johnson was signed.
    Even if the players knew or should have known that Chad was in danger of being dumped if he made only one mistake, Dansby isn’t buying that Chad head-butted his wife.
    “That’s not Chad,” Dansby said. “If anybody knows Chad, that’s not Chad.”

    Dansby specifically said he’s “upset” that Chad was cut. “The man don’t drink, the man don’t smoke,” Dansby said. “He may clown around but when it comes to football, he’s all about football. That’s his life. For him to be in this situation, that’s unfortunate. And it’s out of character.”

    100 percent agree with Dansby, I believe Chad was not the instigator, nor do I believe he headbutted that *****, however, you can't take the chance of letting that particular relationship hang around your franchise, and you must make sure you bond your team moving forward.

    Do we know what Dansby actually said? Or are we just going to overreact until we find out?

    Edit: There's the link. Thanks.

    Chad brings an upbeat personality to the team. I think its natural some players are going to be upset. I don't think Dansby should have said anything. I think this will blow over once he and the others realize that it had to be done in order to walk the walk, guilty or not.

    Maybe 58 needs to concentrate on his adjusting to the 4-3 wich was supposed to play to his strengths, but he was obviously hitting the wrong holes and over pursuing Friday night.

    His comments were pointless and potentially could divide the team. He is a jerk off who doesn't belong in this rebuilding process.

    I don't see anything wrong with having the ability to question things in this situation. This isn't a Bill Parcells/Bill Belichick team where everyone is afraid of saying the wrong word to the press, and it shouldn't be.

    But more important is the fact that the players just learned something they didn't know, and don't like.
