Miami Dolphins Beat Writers

I have been following the Dolphins for a very long time. One of the many resources I use is Phins.com. It shows all news articles related to the Phins from various news sources and beat writers. It also shows many if the "tweets" from the team beat writers. I have an opinion for almost every one of them but one that really gets my goat is Omar Kelly. What is with this guy? He truly thinks he knows more about football than anyone else on the planet. He criticizes people for having their own opinion if it's not the same as his, thinks he us some sort of analyst with his "X's and Omar" show, and is BY FAR THE MOST NEGATIVE DOLPHINS BEAT WRITER/REPORTER OUT THERE! Seriously, how many times does he have to point out that we didn't draft Jimmy Graham?! Geez....

I agree 1000000% Omar Kelly is the most negative clueless person. He went to the Skip Bayless school of journalism.

"Nomore" Kelly...start a "Nomore" campaign to get him removed.

Bahahahahaha. That is classic Carl, CLASSIC!!!

he does come off like a know it all which off-puts a lot of folks, but I gotta admit, I rarely disagree with his actual viewpoints....

I disagree Omar Kelly tells the truth ppl just dont like it...to me the Columnist Armando Salguero has done more been more of a negative writer example he is always talking about how the dolphins brass is falling and half the time the story they report is the reason why they are falling. Armando report that the Dolphins knew about Davone Bess issue before they trade him is a bigger blow to this organization more than Omar Kelly tweets and to credit O he says a lot of things that are true before ppl catch on.

I have to agree with Kafe. Armando Salguero consistently writes anything that comes off as drama negative towards the Dolphins. He always has a "source" which is wrong 50% of the time. Also, this is not a big blow to the Dolphins like soap opera Armando is spinning it. As a matter of fact how much was disclosed to the Dolphins about Brandon Marshall's personality disorder from the Bears? If it were the other way around Armando would be writing it as the Dolphins failed to do their diligence. It was not some massive blockbuster trade. Just Armando writing drama rather than sports.

I am not saying I am a Omar Kelly fan because you are correct he is very glass half empty and is consistently focusing on faults more that pros on the players. Something that lead to Kevin Burnett calling him out as a Dolphins hater at a press conference. However, I do respect that he typically keeps it on the field. He was not attacking the team for Bullygate, he was focused on the need for Bess to get help etc. If you want to make Omar Kelly go away, it is simple, the Dolphins need to win.

Sorry I meant the Broncos on Brandon Marshall.

This is the media today! They take a negative slant to their writing because they have a better chance to be correct. Think about it, only one team wins the Championship and all others fail. And the media is quick to point out the reasons for their failings. Guys like Salguero get to print - "I told you so" and make themselves gods!

Kelly may not always be correct but I think he tries to project a balanced script.
