Fishing for News: No Needless Long Title Edition.

Well, not alot has happened since the first week of FA, but there is still news to get to. Some of this stuff may be a little old but I found it intresting nevertheless. Anyway lets get to it, hit the jump for all information thats Fins, related. You may call it "Finformation", but don't because the patent is still pending.

 Oh I hope you all had a happy St Patty's Day!



- The Fins are making an early statement.

- Look who has a shiny new job with his old team!

- Tony Sparano Q and A.



- So apparently Sean Smith and Vontae Davis can't tackle, well Smith isnt the best tackler and that is a weakness of his but Davis is a solid tackler IMO.

- Kiper and McShay agree: Its Dan Williams at 12.

- Tim Graham takes a look at the recent draft history of the Fins and the rest of the AFCE.

- So how are compensatory picks handed out? The truth is that no one knows because the formula is so damn complex. But Tim Graham has foundsomeone who actually understands that crap.

- Yeremiah Bell is one solid tackler, apparently the best in the business. Now if only we had some LBs last year that ddint whiff on every tackle..

Ok I get it, the Dolphins have not gotten alot of value in the draft due to incompetent jackasses running the show.

- FS, WR and NT are the main needs that we have, according to Tim Graham.

- How old is old for a RB?


Miami Herald:

- Greg Cote says that since Dansby is now a Dolphin we should draft Dez Bryant.

- Pennington is our 3rd string QB BTW. He also plans on playing in the NFL for 5 more years.

- Finding the right fit at NT is easier said than done.

- Jeff Owens could be targeted by the Dolphins.

- Earl Thomas? Yes, please.

- Some Pro-Day Notes from last week.

- The Fins take a chance on Incognito.

- Notes from last Thursday.

- The Marshall Plan is not the right course for Miami.

- Analyzing the Dolphins Draft: Week 7.

- What kind of player can we expect at 12?

- "A dozen Dolphins get 100K-plus bonuses, 3 of top 5 earners played relatively little".


Around the Interwebs:

- Remembering Merlin Olsen, RIP big guy.

- Here is a video breaking down the play of Quentin Moses:

- The NYT's excellent 5th Down Blog breaks down the Miami Dolphins.

- Gil Brandt says now that we have Dansby we could trade down from 12 and pick up a WR later.

- PFF's all AFCE Team, alot of Fins on that list.

- The Dolphins are among the Free Agency winners.

OH SNAP! Now it may seem like a dick move, but its the sad truth, many people have said this(including me and I love the Gators). Tim Tebow is not an NFL QB.

- The weekly Miami Dolphins Team Report.

- Miami is looking to take back whats theirs.

- Five Safeties the Fins should target.

Mock Drafts and other Draft stuff: 

- The 10 Yard Split is more important than the 40. Ahh but what if it just so happens to be 40 yards to the endzone and and OLB picks off a pass or recovers a loose ball? Speaking of guys who go after balls, hi Nicky!
