Preseason awards

Its not the good old days. Gone are the players that made these awards so special. But, we've still got a couple of awards to hand out:

  • Best facial hair. Without a doubt Paul Soliai wins this award. There aren't words to describe this except "cool" (because he is 355 pounds after all)

  • Yatil Green award for getting injured early in training camp: As we discussed, Tab Perry wins this one with the achilles tear back in May. We do feel bad for the guy, and hope he takes consolation in this award.

  • Best body art: lots of guys have tattoos these days [insert bad joke here]. Heck, Channing Crowder is virtually covered with them. But, for the most visible, we turn to Jake Long, who has the word "LONG" tattooed on his triceps. We were thinking they could have just not put a name on his jersey this season, to save a few bucks - its that visible.

  • Best name: Scorpio Babers had the inside track, but he got cut too early to merit serious consideration. So, Boomer Grigsby is our less-than-perfect choice as a winner.

  • Best hair: There are more guys with dreds, and of course you have Satele's flowing hair. But, for overall effect, Davone Bess has the most unique hair on the team.

  • Best cheerleader moment: Well, we didn't really have one, but that shouldn't stop us from posting a picture of a cheerleader here, should it?

  • Best offseason moment: For Dolphins fans everyone, I suppose that would be the day that Bill Parcells walked into Cam Cameron's office and told him to raise his right hand, and wave it from side to side. I could just imagine Bill saying "now say goodbye."

  • Best acquisition: Seems like the trade that brought both Akin Ayodele and Anthony Fasano was pretty darn good. They're both starters and look like they'll be good for years to come.

  • Best rookie, thus far: With respect to Chad Henne, how about Donald Thomas. A walkon at UConn, who only played football for 2 years. Now the starting right guard for the Miami Dolphins.

  • Biggest loss: Watching JT leave was hard. He was the team leader, and a fan favorite.

  • Defining moment of the preseason: The 5 play goal line stand against the Chiefs leads me to believe this team will be a qualified good this sesaon.

  • Predicition: 7 wins. That's a 600% improvement over last year.
