    This might be old news, but I saw on Bleacher Report that Ben V. is leaving to be Boston Globe's Patriot beat writer? Have you guys heard this? I now see where he announced it in his newspaper section on Friday, the 10th. He was the best writer for the Dolphins. He will be missed.

    If Miami rises and takes the East over from an aging Tom Brady, talk about poor timing for poor Ben.

    Get real. The Boston Globe is huge for Ben. The Boston sports market is much better than down here. Even though newspapers are kind of dinosaurs now, it's certainly an upgrade over the PBP or any of the other rags down here.

    I wish our QB could put up declining numbers like Brady did last season

    His last day was last week. I think he has 2 weeks off before he starts at the Globe. I can't remember specifically what his 1st assignment will be but it sounded pretty lame. He's a good guy, apparently a lot of people like him. Sounds like he will be missed.

    I am going to miss him. Don't always agree but the man is good at what he does. Being stuck with Omar and Mando is the equivalent of the Dolphins over the last ten years.

    He's a writer first and foremost. Big time career move for him. It's not a coincidence that the good have left and we're stuck with ... well, Armando and Omar.

    Anyone remember Greg Bedard? He did this, left to go cover the Packers, and then left them to go cover the Patriots with the Boston Globe.

    The Boston Globe is a bigger paper and he probably got a nice raise...I heard him on the radio saying he will have to buy some warm clothes.

    Ill enjoy reading his stuff up here, even if its about the Pats I guess! Hopefully he'll always have a soft spot, covering the Fins, when they come to town..

    I don't blame the man. If it were the best financial decision for him and his family you can't be mad at that.

    Good for him.
    It sucks for us because outside of Barry Jackson we have Omar and 'Mando.

    It doesn't matter who is playing where for what.

    Boston is a real media center...Whereas...Miami?

    Well, Miami has Omar Kelly....Who doesn't ever seem to be getting a sniff from
    any major market media outlet.

    cant get mad at the man, he made a career move because he is also going to do more NFLN work, but im mad that the boston market took arguably our BEST reporter

    they took Omar Or Salgauro I wouldnt even bat an I, but this dug deep a little because I liked his work so much
