Bill Belichick for one day can you just grow a heart?

Belichick has been heartless in the past and has not cared about anyone, but what he just did to Tiquan Underwood is way over the top. If you haven't already heard, Belichick and the patriots cut Underwoods today, 1 day before the Super Bowl. They decided to promote a defensive lineman from the practice squad because they felt, a day before the Super Bowl, that they needed another lineman who will be lucky to get 1 play in. Nice job Belichick you made Underwood fly all his family over, probably bought really expensive tickets and went through all the festivities for you to cut him. One thing is if he would have cut him 2 weeks ago so that he didn't have to go through bringing his family to Indy but he just decided to make him have the worst day of his life. I have no doubt that there are prisoners that have more heart than Bill. How any man can root for this guy is beyond me. Hopefully he gets blown out tomorrow or finds out he's adopted.

Could Jason Taylor pull a Brett Favre if Peyton Manning comes to the Dolphins?

I was thinking about the possibility of Manning to the Dolphins and then thought about Jason Taylor and the possibility of JT un-retiring if he thinks the Dolphins could be a Super Bowl contender with Manning. We all know that JT doesn't have a ring so the possibility of getting one and ending his career on top, possibly moving up in the all time sack list and the switch back to the 4-3 could make him second guess his decision. JT said he thought he could still play but he thought it was fitting to end his career by beating the jets, but a Super Bowl could be better. Also in an interview with ESPN Manning said he talked to players, one of those being JT, about his situation, so take that for what will. What do you guys think about this?

Marshall doing his best to recruit a QB

We all know by now that Brandon Marshall wants a different QB. About 2 weeks ago Marshall told the media that he had spoken to soon to be free agent Matt Flynn about coming to Miami before the Dolphins hired Philbin. He also said that he would be in contact with Manning soon. I guess soon meant 2 weeks later, because today he went to an event at a local school in Indy which was sponsored by Manning. (The picture on top was taken at the event, Marshall is seen in the background)

I like that Marshall is contacting potential QBs to help this team out and it shows his competitive nature and his desire to win now. He, as well as all of us, knows that we need to upgrade the position and when a soon to be Hall-of-Famer and a QB who set a Packer record in just his 2nd start are more than likely going to be free agents he needs to persuade them as much as he could. Also knowing Marshall he didn't just want to get a big game at the pro bowl for himself but also to convince potential QBs to come to Miami.

Earlier last month Ross had reportedly told someone that his top choice at QB would be Manning and that he would be willing to spend big money on him. And now just this morning a source told Armando something pretty interesting. "His wife is also a big fan of the area," the source told Armando. "He likes the area. He likes the vibe of the area more than you might think. They own a condo down here. And no other team that could be trying to sign him will be able to say that."

I believe it's just going to come down to Manning and Flynn. I think that if Manning isn't medically cleared by then, then the Dolphins will likely get Flynn. However if Manning is healthy Ireland, Ross and Philbin would have a big decision ahead of them. Maybe Marshall's opinion will play a role in it.

Channing Crowder returning to the NFL?

So apparently according to Crowder himself he has generated interest from team and he is planning on playing in 2012 with basically any team except for the Dolphins. The reason for this is because Channing does not want to go to a team that has Ireland as GM.

"I wouldn't "I wouldn’t go on a team with Jeff Ireland," said Crowder. "I’m not very confident in him. He doesn’t know what he’s doing in my opinion. He’s real disrespectful. He doesn’t know how to deal with people."

"He’s not a good person," Crowder also said. "He has no class and I wouldn’t choose to go back and play there. And I would have to say it’s the only team I don’t want to play for."

Ok where do I start with this, Crowder is actually drawing interest from NFL teams? Or could it just be an arena or CFL team, he didn't give any names of the teams that have contacted him. Second why did he feel the need to say this about Ireland? I mean I know that Ireland cut him, but this is a business and if they could upgrade the position, which they clearly did with Burnett, it's obvious. Maybe if Crowder made an impact on the field he would have needed to say these things from the radio. If this came from a player like Ray Lewis about his GM then I would listen but due to Crowder history of talking smack, I think this was just a case of Crowder holding a grudge with Ireland because they cut him and the player they got produced on the field and made more plays on the field. Channing just came off as a child blaming Ireland, come on Channing your better than that....I think.

Brandon Marshall awarded being MVP of the Pro Bowl after catching 4 TDs

Larry Fitzgerald seemed to have the MVP locked up after scoring 2 quick TDs in a game that looked like a blowout. Then things just took a 180 turn after the onside kick when the players in the AFC woke up and decided to play. Brandon Marshall went crazy afterwards scoring 4 TDs to help lead the AFC to a win and it gave Marshall the MVP. After a season in which he only had 4 TDs he scored 4 in the pro bowl. During each interview he credited the Qbs for throwing it in the right areas which made it easy for him. Marshall probably didn't mean it as a knock on Matt Moore but it sounded like it. It sounded like he was hinting that he wanted a new Qb. Marshall told reporters last week that he had spoken to Flynn about the possibility of him coming down to Miami which along with the interviews really hints that he wants Flynn to be throwing him the ball instead of Moore.

I think somewhere Flynn just decided where his top choice would be if and when he hits free agency. Flynn just looks like the obvious choice now that we have Philbin as our head coach. Its also looks like Marshall would love him here as well. I know Ross said, through his people, that his top choice would be Manning, but I just think that Manning isn't going to be healthy enough that the Dolphins would take a chance on him and pursue Flynn instead. I'm sure Philbin, who apparently had a great relationship with Flynn, and Marshall will convince Ross and Ireland to get Flynn, leaving the Dolphins to worry about other positions in the draft.

Also in other news Sean Smith tweeted to Vontae Davis that there will be a change to the uniform and that they will look a "little different". Possibly a new Qb, new coach and new uniforms, can't wait until next season
