    we all know he is a ****ing retard by now, but in one of his latest articles he states "A zone blocking scheme without offensive guards who can pull can not gel." little does he know in a zone scheme there is little to no pulling whatsover... a zone scheme is simply IZ (inside zone) and OZ (that stretch play you see houston run 1000000x times). zone schemes are all about combination blocks and working to the second level.. Zone schemes almost never pull a guard..... as omar kelly would say #SMH:crazy:

    While he may be stating it wrong I think his thought is correct. The linemen have to be more athletic than stout which Miami's ar not. I wouldn't be shocked to see three new starting offensive linemen next year in Miami.

    Barry Jackson and Ben Volin are the class of South Florida sports writers. Everyone else is a pretender or drama queen.

    Nothing will ever top Omar's tweeting his concern that the lack of fan noise at Sun Life made it to easy for the defense to hear Tannehill's calls at the line. I thought it was a mistake until he followed it up with he was disturbed the stadium was so quiet when the Dolphins were on offense.

    Not the point of my post. The thread was started to point out inaccuracies in Omar Kelly's article. We all know that we use a zone blocking scheme. To me, the point of the thread appears to simply bash Omar Kelly. My point being, although Omar writes about the dolphins, this wasn't dolphins related as it was just intended to bash him. So how is that dolphins related? "I'm so confused..."

    Omar Kelly is an ignorant self-absorbed ***. WTF do you care if he gets bashed on a message board? If you aren't interested, don't read the thread, simple as that.

    It was Dolphins related because well, it was about the Dolphins lol. If it wasn't it would have been moved to a different part of this forum.

    I get your logic, this isn't a very informative article and he did take a shot at Omar (which doesn't bother me at all) but using said logic you could post the same thing you did in like 75% of threads here that are just bashing one person or another. May as well get use to it.. I have..

    the thread was to
    1 Yes Bash Omar
    2 explain that our running game doesn't involve a lot of pulling, but we do need athletic lineman TO GET TO THE SECOND LEVEL (LBs)

    ---------- Post added at 04:05 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:04 PM ----------

    I think he wants Tannehill to be a hammer head shark

    With Barry Jackson and Ben Volin, I would also put Dave Hyde in the category of Dolphins writers I enjoy reading. Yes, he is more opinionated than others, but I generally agree with his assessments of the team when he offers them. He also seems to have a good degree of respect for the journalism profession and reminds me of some of the more old school writers I used to enjoy reading.

    Omar, on the other hand, is starting to lose control. While some use criticism to fuel or humble them, the increased fan hatred appears to be fracturing Omar into being outwardly rude to his readership and emotional in his writing of the team. It's extremely surprising no one has disciplined him at the Sun Sentinel for his uncalled for tweets to people (which are broadcast on the Sun Sentinel Dolphins page). This is coming from someone who really, really used to enjoy reading Omar's articles before they became all about himself.

    Unequivocally Armando but the comparison isn't advantageous to you either way, it's like choosing between the pestilence and plague either way you are left festering.

    I don't think it's an obsession, but rather it's always a topic because we always have to put up with his work as Dolphins fans. It's simply incomprehensible that the guy still has a job.

    Actually, there's 2 different types of blocking schemes people refer to as OZ. There's the pure zone you're discussing which isn't combo blocking, but drastic reach steps designed to cut off the DL to the play side by any means necessary (shoulder, flipper, cut, or actually getting across him to block) and there's pin/pull. In pin/pull (think Indy Colts with E. James) the guards (and at times the OTs) DO pull. Glen Mason was the guru of pin/pull and Alex Gibbs is the guru of the typical IZ/OZ blocking.

    I am not sure if anyone else caught Omar's interview on WQAM today or have been following his tweets at all, but he is on a rampage today. Basically he is implying that Tannehill is not good and probably never will be. Questions Joe Philbin and even suggests that he is a BAD head coach. Blasts Sherman and Philbin for using Bush(in his opinion) wrong all year. Laughs that the Dolphins have 5 picks in the first three rounds in a year HE considers to be a poor draft class. Said Miami is not really that desirable of a destination for free agents, only the money will be able to get players to come here. Also said that if Miami did fire Ireland that it would be tough to lure a better GM here.The guy is a major douchebag today.

    The ratio of Omar Kelly threads to Jeff Ireland threads is pretty impressive.

    Well as much as I dislike Omar, I always think it's funny when Dolphins fans get mad at the media for being critical of the team and not being fans. Volin was getting attacked for it the other day. People seem to be under a serious misconception that journalists are supposed to "support" the franchise. That's what MiamiDolphins.com is for.

    I actually agree that Philbin and Sherman didn't use Bush correctly for most of the year. I also agree with him in that I don't see a great player in Tannehill, he maybe turn out ok but never special.

    It's probably true about Bush. As much as I hate to say it, there are plenty of gripes to have about Philbin and Sherman in 2012.

    As for Tannehill, the reality is we have no idea what he'll be right now. You have half the fanbase saying "WE'VE FOUND OUR FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK" and the other half saying he's never going to amount to anything. How anyone knows at this point is beyond me. In four years we could have Aaron Rodgers or we could have Chad Henne. That being said, I don't see anything to indicate he doesn't have elite upside still. I think giving him a few years to develop and more pieces to work with will tell us what we need to know, but it'll take time. I do know that I like his presence, confidence/swagger, protection of the ball, athleticism, etc. But for any of us to sit here sure of what he's going to become is just arrogant.

    I don't feel that a journalist has to support the local team. I would however prefer to have a beat writer that didn't detest the local team. He seems gleeful in his criticism.

    It's probably just hard for him to watch the Dolphins struggle knowing in his mind that he has the most brilliant football mind in the whole town.

    IMO, Omar has been critical of the team ever since Burnett and Dansby took him to task over his reporting style and Burnett told him point blank to STFU or put pads on. He has also always given Ireland, who has only been average as a GM, a pass on the blunders. All GMs make mistakes as well make good decisions. Just report the facts and let the readers make their own decisions...

    As far as how Bush was used, I think that was mostly based on our mediorce OLine play as well as the fact that Bush was NOT running the same way after the knee injury against the stinking jets. In the passing game, there was no visible chemistry between Tannehill and Bush all season. Bush caught 35 balls for 292 yards and 2 TDs. His best seasons in NO, Bush caught 88 and 73 balls.

    Tannehill was decent all year with the reasonable ups and downs of a rookie. Sherman and Philbin both commented on limiting his scrambling to keep him healthy and we saw a lot of Fasano and Bush staying in to help protect. What we saw this season was a smart, confident rookie QB, who played like a rookie... nothing more or less. Unlike RG3 or Wilson, he didn't have the same quality of playmakers around him ala the #2 and #3 RBs in the league who put up double digit TDs (Morris and Lynch) as these guy did, nor did he have all pro receivers or the TE play that Luck did. Next season, he should have more confidence and more weapons and the expectations of having a winning season and possibly the playoffs...

    Can we just consolidate all Omar posts into a thread called, "The Omar Kelly Files: Follies of an attention starved sportswriter" or maybe even " Douche: An Omar Kelly Story"
