    Yet the OL guru couldn't accomplish this. Sparano is looking more inept as this season goes along. Glad he is the Jets problem now.

    Yup Jerry has played great, especially considering that at one point I thought he should have been cut! A few were critical of him yesterday but he was going up against a pro bowler, players like that will get past you at some point.

    Turner is a great coach IMO. I like his approach to the game and we all saw Jerry throw up those 35 lbs. on Hardknocks too.

    Hopefully the light has turned on for Jerry and he continues to maintain his weight even in the off season.

    That fluke 2008 season only hurt this organization in the long run. Tony shoulda been gone after 2010.

    It probably helped that he was embarrassed on national television. I know it definitely would have helped motivate me!

    I have to say I am stunned by this whole development. In a great way. Hopefully he will lay off the donuts next off season. I can't stand laziness.

    Do you think Sparano tried his best? I do so why would you call him a meatball, just put it down to not knowing how to get the best from some players. Not trying to find fault here.

    Last year it wasn't just Jerry. Sparano let the whole damn team start the season out of shape.

    You can draft a player with all the potential in the world, if they don't decide to do what's in their best interest you end up looking like you're incompetent. It seems the majority of the time when a player takes a while to reach there potential, there's always something deciding factor as to why they are not good right out the gates. And sometimes people forget these are kids coming right out of college. I couldn't even begin to imagine if i were to try and do what I do know when I was 24 yrs old, I would have been a major bust!.

    We finally have a O-Line guru head coach that is actually getting this line to play very good football. Jerry is easily the most improved player this year so far for me.

    Jim Turner didn't put Jerry through any kind of special regimen. He just had Jerry's fridge mounted 5 feet off the ground with a stairmaster installed in front of it.

    "Meatball"? Kind of bigoted, don't you think?

    Nevertheless: nonsense. JERRY was drafted for PARCELLSBALL: the power game, w/all that came w/it. JERRY also, according to SPARANO, had "Tackle's feet". Not surprising, since he played some T in college. So, we had a right...a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT...to see a huge, but still pretty fast G. That's just what JERRY was then, and to his credit and w/a good Coach, he got down to 325ish, and now looks lightning quick on "traps" and "pulls" etc.. So much so that he's still here, as are many others, in a different scheme which requires greater athleticism.

    SPARANO was NOT even close to ready to be a HC. But he knows Line play. He was right about JERRY...and POUNCEY, and GARNER and i/m/o a whole lot of others. Some had obvious talent, but just couldn't stay healthy. That's NOT on SPARANO, fellow Dolfans. That's the Gods of Football REAMING MIAMI right in its rectum...AGAIN.

    Maybe now, our luck will change. It sure is BEGINNING to look that way. Dare we hope???

    Considering John Jerry showed up to camp at about 375, that now means he's 340.

    jerry had a really tough matchup yesterday in geno atkins who is a wrecking ball interior pass rusher and yeah atkins got a sack after beating jerry inside on a play but jerry was pretty solid...

    i'm pretty sure jerry is a free agent after next season who wants to bet he comes into camp next year in sick shape??? 330 range i'm betting...

    Jerry definitely had some trouble on Sunday, though. He's still a work in progress. At this point, he's "decent starter" material. Against top quality guys he's getting thrown around. He's not at the level of Long, Incognito or Pouncey. Martin is coming along fairly well. Good news is, there's some progress. I think after this season, Martin will be just fine and Miami will have an incredibly solid o-line. One of the best in the league, actually.

    Pouncey is a top 3 NFL Center... and people were mad we took him #16. I love it!

    We took him #15 and yeah even though he's playing very well I'm ticked about it. Top 15 picks should be spent on playmakers, skill positions. If we wanted him we should have tried to trade down a few spots and still got him plus an extra 3rd rounder.

    Jerry is doing good but I'd still draft a guard in the second or third round (we have 4 picks in the second/third don't we?). There needs to be competition on the guard positions, can't let these guards feel entitled. Our tackle and center positions are locked, but both guards need improvement or replacement.

    Pittsburgh was ready to trade in order to take him, this theory has already been put to bed long time. What good is a playmaker if you can't protect your Qb? How are you suppose to get the ball to them? This is football 101. And if you're stubborn truth, Pouncey has been the best center in the league this year, and hes just in second season and you're still mad? Tell me who you have drafted after the trade down? If you don't have a good line you have squad.

    And without so call playmakers we had 60 +20 Yard Plays Last year, and we are currently on par to shatter that total this year and that's without Marshall.

    16 Washington Redskins Ryan Kerrigan DE
    17 New England Patriots Nate Solder OL
    18 San Diego Chargers Corey Liuget DT
    19 New York Giants Prince Amukamara CB
    20 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Adrian Clayborn DL
    21 Cleveland Browns Phil Taylor DL
    22 Indianapolis Colts Anthony Castonzo OL
    23 Philadelphia Eagles Danny Watkins OL
    24 New Orleans Saints Cameron Jordan DE
    25 Seattle Seahawks James Carpenter OL
    26 Kansas City Chiefs Jonathan Baldwin WR
    27 Baltimore Ravens Jimmy Smith CB
    28 New Orleans Saints Mark Ingram RB
    29 Chicago Bears Gabe Carimi OL
    30 New York Jets Muhammad Wilkerson DT
    31 Pittsburgh Steelers Cam Heyward DT
    32 Green Bay Packers Derek Sherrod OL

    Please Tell Who On This List Can Say they are unequivocally the best at their position?

    SEAL stands for Sea,Air and Land-they are the special operatons arm of the U.S. Navy, that's why. But that's still funny. lol

    I understand that.

    But it's not like any other service has SEALs. There are no Army, Air Force, nor Marine SEALs....Hence, if you use the term "SEAL", the terms MUST be refering to the SEALs,
    who, in fact are a Naval unit. Just one of those things that always irritated me. You don't say "The Navy Ship USS Nimitz"....There's only one Nimitz, and it's a naval ship.

    I've said this several times. John Jerry is one of the most damning players against Sparano and his staff. Jerry got sick during his rookie season and lost a lot of weight. He came to the next camp out of shape and they just had him practice on the 2nd team at a bunch of different positions, and while he made the team they were ready to cut him. Philbin and Turner recognized he was making a lot of mistakes but he had talent so what did they do? They pushed Jerry to his limit and then passed them. They made him practice till he puked. Turner even said if Jerry could reach his potential he'd be one of our best linemen, and what they did was a last resort thing. If it didn't work, Jerry had was unsavable but it worked.

    Oh, and for more Jim Turner goodness, 2 guys he recruited and coached up at A&M are arguably the top 2 OT prospects in the draft (depending on how much you like Taylor Lewan) both are juniors but their names are Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews (Bruce's son)
