    I don't tune into the Sid Rosenberg show often, but I was listening today and they had Tony McDaniel on and Sid asked Tony about being named the starter for the Minnesota game and then right before the game them sending Randy back to DE and putting Soliai at NT and having him rotate like normal. McDaniel stated that they had a "package" for him and that package was not going to start the game.

    So Sid, being the funniest unfunny guy you know asked Tony if he is bothered by them bringing in a guy like Odrick, Merling still in the mix, Grant, Douglas, etc and says your a big and impressive enough guy to handle it and McDaniel was like"I agree I don't know why they keep bringing in these guys either". He also says that him and Mike Nolan have not "connected at all" and even him and Tony Sparano "aren't tight like that". He stated with supreme confidence in being able to be a dominant force on this line and feels like coaches don't see it like that.

    He goes on to say "Well this is my last year in Miami" and when Sid tells him that they just want "you and Will Allen" off on a plane out of here Tony laughingly (but seriously) agreed. Sid decides to get off the subject saying he doesn't want to get him in trouble with the Dolphins and Tony really didn't seem to care. They went on to talk about the Dolphins and he did acknowledge the great team defense they have played and he was glad the team has gotten off to a good start.


    I just found it real weird that a player would go on a radio talk show after a 2-0 start to the season and express his dissappointment so openly and bluntly to a talk show host. I wonder what is going on here? I really like the depth that Tony McDaniel brings to our DLine and I was hoping we resign him but it definitely doesn't look like that is going to happen.

    Just like McDaniel claimed he was going to dominate the Jaguars last year and he got his *** handed to him?

    I listened to that interview and I did not get the same feeling. He seemed frank and patient with Sid's bullets.

    i no some people dont like sid and all, but i think sid has a great personality for radio. i know hes not a dolphin fan and all, but hes still a good radio guy. i enjoy his interviews with ricky weekly and all his other guests. he makes it interesting. a lot better than Michael Irving.

    Just went back against my morals and listened to the interview. Same ole Same ole. Sid was doing everything possible to put him on the spot. He was leading him on. Mcdaniels was foolish enough to play along.

    Been saying this for months, STOP LISTENING TO 560 WQAM.

    BIG O has become the most negative Bish on the radio.
    Sid Rosenberg is POS NY who hates Miami

    And dont forget this is the station that sent the BIGO crew to cover the 1st week of the NY JETS Training Camp instead of the Dolphins Camp. That right there alone put the icing on the cake for me.

    I completely disagree, it got a bit awkward, I mean Sid doesn't have a problem being awkward on his own but I don't think he was prepared for Tony being so blunt, he was so blunt that you had to believe he felt there was truth coming out of McDaniel's mouth.

    I dunno, maybe I overanalyzed it, but Tony McD didn't seem happy at all. When you say on the radio "This is my last year in Miami" and you don't even say the words "hopefully we can get an extension done" or nothing like that, it felt like he is done after this year, atleast that is how I felt when I listened.

    I didn't know I could listen online, I would have got the EXACT quotes instead of paraphrasing them (was driving). Sorry for the inaccuracies in the quotes.

    The Fins tried signing McDaniel to a long term contract which he declined. He better be careful cause the Fins told Douglas he could be resigned, and the way Miami is cutting players I would be very careful if I am Tony.

    I don't think Tony is anything special to be honest. Won't need to re-sign him with Odrick here and Merling back healthy next season anyway. I'm sure he'll have a talk with Coach Sparano about these comments though. We're not the New York Jets, this kind of stuff doesn't fly here. Period.

    Sid is a pri*k. McDaniel is not an eloquent radio speaker and that in itself makes for awkward listening. Sid baited him throughout the interview and Mcdaniels took it very calmly and responded frankly.

    He was asked about the draft day and Odrick DE in first round. The question was posed in a baited manner like: I was puzzled by Odrick pick, we have you to play, were you also surprised and kind of mad at another DE?
    And he answered frankly: yes I was like what the heck.

    Any one of us would feel the same. What the heck, am I the worst player so that we need DE in first round? That was very frank.

    Will be surprised if the fins allow Mcdaniel to do another radio interview.

    Have I already mentioned F*ck 560? just checking.

    I doubt Sid said to himself on draft day, "But wait, don't the Dolphins have Tony McDaniel? Who needs this other guy?" Tony played only part-time snaps.

    I thought the guy was a small breath of fresh air to be honest.. Very blunt with his answers, no BS'ng... You got to at least love the part where he is guaranteeing a victory against the Jets.... "100% fact, put your money on it" lol I LIKE!!

    Disturbing words from McDaniel. He'll get his wish.

    I know in this game against the Jets, I'd sure like to see Marques Douglas in there guarding against the Jets' well practiced screen game, especially with Tomlinson getting the work. The Jets have hurt the Dolphins with the screen before, and with their at times aggressive OLBs, they could be hurt again with it. What Marques Douglas does so well is in passing situations he keeps an eye on the back and doesn't let him get to his outside, especially if it's looking like a screen. He's something of a specialist this way.

    Here is the radio link for those interested. LOL I was in rush hour so I had alot going on so maybe I made it seem bigger than it was, but either way he is either being VERY BLUNT with Sid or he is unhappy. I only listened to the first part in the car, going to listen to the second part now.

    Yes. In addition, he was asked about offense; whether he is mad at Henne and the offense for not scoring and putting pressure on D.

    McD said No. We on D are supposed to win the game. Defense wins games. I thought that was a great attitude.

    Are you kidding me. McDaniel had a bad game vs. Minnesota there were 2 plays were I seen he made some lame attempts at tackling Adrian Peterson.

    Dude I am listening to the interview and you almost get the feeling Sid wants to get McDaniel in trouble.

    Yea it definitely seems that way, and Tony took the bait a few times. I guess its more Sid than anything but Tony still doesn't seem that ecstatic about the situation he is in. Weird to see a player so up front, but I guess its commendable. I don't think he will be doing to many more interviews though, espescially with Sid.

    I have been adamant to the point of being obnoxious of my dislike for McDaniel as a player. The gifts he brings to the table -- huge body (leading to batted down passes) and pursuit -- do not compensate for his lack of pass rush moves, his tendency to play too high, his tendency to stop his feet once he gets locked on in pass rush and his tendency to get blown off the ****ing ball in the run game.

    If this guy thinks he's anything approaching a dominant player he's even more delusional than I thought. I remember when he got traded he made some watered down comments to this same affect, about 'how could the Jaguars in their right mind trade away such a great, young player with my size... I'll make them pay, etc, etc'. It made me cringe at the time, pissed me off when I broke down his play closely, and now it just makes me laugh.

    No wonder Nolan and Sparano haven't clicked with him. The guy is on Mars with his opinion of himself. It would be like trying to strike up a conversation with a toothless bum who wonders why everyone doesn't think he should be on the cover of GQ.

    Highlight of the interview was McDaniel saying he was to lay out Mark Sanchez and that Sanchez has a huge target on his back. Make it so Tony make it so. Guy sounds proud to be a Dolphin.

    Sid and the whole 560 crew suck. I listened to Sid yesterday when they were airing the marlins game on 790, needless to say it was quite drive home. I hate his voice, his smugness, his annoying voice, and his even more annoying jokes. How is he still on the air with lebatard in the same slot

    I'd be concerned if he was relavant, he is decent back-up always has been and always will be, he is Unhappy he isnt starting but with Odrick,Starks, Langford,Merling here he should know his role and keep his mouth shut.

    Exactly!! Why is this guy complaining? Be good enough to start, be good enough to force the coaching staff to play you, THEN run your mouth. For now just settle down.

    He is good enough to play. He is actually playing. He was not running his mouth. Randy Moss was running his mouth last week. McD was frank about answering question he was baited to answer in a show where he was a guest subbing for Odrick. He did not complain or throw anyone under the buss.

    Chill out.

    Tony McD isn't special but he is nice quality depth.

    Because The Ticket is any better? You do know that Big O has a contract with HBO, right? And they chose Big O to participate with Hard Knocks, not WQAM.

    McDaniel needs to be a man and take his SULKING onto the field and PROVE he's worthy of a starting spot. If he was so dominant, they wouldn't be bringing people in.

    Figure it out McDaniel...

    I never pass judgment on other people's intelligence, but I'll make an exception here. Tony McDaniel sounds like he is drugged. Seriously, McDaniel sounds like the type of low I.Q. guy that tries all day to put a square peg in a round hole. Sid is COMPLETELY jumping on it too, obviously pushing along thoughts on a weak-minded player.

    For those that haven't heard it, the interview sounds like this:

    Sid: It sounds like you hate the Dolphins. Do you hate the Dolphins?

    Tony: Eeeyuuuuhmuhhhhhhffffffff

    Sid: Wow, so do you hate Vontae Davis? Do you want to punch Tony Sparano in the face?

    Tony: Muuuuuuuhhhhhhhhffffffffeeeeeelllllllll



    ....If we lose this guy, our team will survive.

    Tony McDaniel is one of the worst defensive players we have. He's slow and tries to arm tackle ALL of the time. I wouldn't miss him at all.
