This will be the first installment of a little Friday feature I hope to continue throughout the remainder of this season, barring you all hating it or something bizarre like that. I thought it might be fun to take a look at several prominent Dolphins blogs to see what they're saying both about our Bills and about their Dolphins, then poke a little fun and/or analyze their (usually very good) opinions. It's an experiment, so feel free to a) comment right along with me, or b) leave suggestions to better these posts.
For the record, these sites are places I've visited (reluctantly, to be sure) before, and they're all very consistently well-written and good sources for Dolphins info. I quietly mock from here with full respect for their work - their only downfall is their perplexing love for the Orange and Teal. Ew.
Our good friends from The Phinsider had some interesting things to say about Ted Ginn against the Bills' defense:
Hmm... good points. Good thing it'll be Jabari Greer and George Wilson containing Ginn all day Sunday! Youboty is probable for this contest, but Greer's play has been so consistent that Youboty will likely serve as the fourth corner. Meanwhile, Wilson isn't dropping on the depth chart, either.
Phinaticism, a rare good blog from the Blogspot realm (I love a good Blogspot blog, and this one is very well done), is unimpressed with Joey Porter:
Porter's ineptitude is more unfortunate for Taylor than the Dolphins, but yes, that signing screamed "worst FA signing ever" before the ink even dried. That said, Porter still has enough left in the tank to give J.P. Losman a headache or two in a couple of days...
Dave Blake from Phinfever agrees with my sentiment that Zach Thomas is done:
In case you hadn't heard, Thomas is out of the Bills game. Blake makes a good point here, likening this head injury to the ones Trent Green has suffered in his career. Thomas has been one of the league's most ferocious inside 'backers for quite some time, but I echo Dave's feelings that Thomas needs to quit while he's ahead.
Cleo Lemon is starting at quarterback. Why not John Beck, the second-round rookie who magically made the Ted Ginn pick look acceptable? Phin Phanatic says it's simple: Beck isn't ready.
That time is closing in quickly. Even after the announcement that Lemon would continue to start, Beck still was receiving half of the first team snaps. An indication that Beck is still being prepared for his NFL regular season debut.
I am a Cleo Lemon fan. He's not close to being a very good quarterback, but I like his scrappiness and his solid leadership. That said, his time as an NFL starter is running short - I give him about 3 more quarters. My guess is that we'll see Beck take on the Bills at some point this week.
