How do you like that?

We'll see how good Miami's corners - Will Allen and Jason Allen (really?  can the editor please check this?  it can't possibly be right can it?) - fare against Terrell Owens twice a year.
 
He signed with the Bills today, which makes the possibly better, and likely more disorganized.

That's just wrong

Saw this headline "Rather than layoffs, Jets will have employees on business side take 2 weeks of unpaid leave" (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/football/pro/dolphins/sns-ap-fbn-jets-staff-furloughs,0,724744.story) which talks about how the Jets front office staff will have to take a couple of weeks of unpaid leave due to the sagging economy.
 
Meanwhile they've doled out hundreds of millions to a couple of players.
 
What's wrong with this picture?  Are we that screwed up as a society?

Sad news

Although its not Dolphins-related, we were saddened to learn of the NFL players (and their friend) who were lost at sea over the weekend.
 
Its a reminder to all of us that life is short, and we need sometimes to tread lightly and be aware of our surroundings.

Take a Holliday

Miami released Vonnie Holliday in what we think is a salary cap move.  He was due to make a sizable amount of money this year, so they tried to renegotiate his contract.  He declined, and now he's a free agent.
 
We totally respect Holliday, since he played for three coaches on mostly bad teams, changed defensive schemes each year, and played pretty much every position along the d-line in both a 3-4 and a 4-3.  And though he's a vet, he never complained.
 
After being released he said he knew it was just a business and held no hard feelings.
 
A gentleman to the end.

Washington's stimulus package

Apparently the Redskins decided to try their own version of a stimulus package by signing two players to contracts that guarantee $60 million to two players.
 
I'm assuming that they figure the players will spend some money and therefore stimulate the local economy.  Isn't that the principle of "trickle down economics" ?
 
And speaking of trickle down, JT was released by the Skins today, which means he's available to say....Miami?
