Re: Dolphins sign McCune off our practice squad

He's only "good" because he's no longer a Redskin. Every player who leaves is always glorified for some stupid reason. On the one hand, he's a waste of a pick that we drafted. On the other hand, he's a football god because he's an ex-Redskin.

Oh and welcome to the board goose

Not to practice squad. That's why I said 53 man roster.

Re: Dolphins sign McCune off our practice squad

McCune was considered to be a project coming out of college. Undoubtedly scouts fell in love with him because of his physique, but the fact is he's not a polished player and he was old as a rookie to start with. I wouldn't worry about him becoming the next Ray Lewis, he would probably be lucky if he became a solid special teamer in this league.

But we expect him to rise this year when he's playing middle linebacker. And right now, I don't see him where we want him, and I'm not taking the blame for that."

Youth Must Demonstrate That It's Ready to Serve
When has Dale Lindsay EVER taken the blame for anything? He made it his business to call out and embarrass LaVar last year, but it wasn't until LaVar broke the lineup that the team became a physical run-stuffing unit during the playoff drive. It was LaVar with a key INT to set up a score against Tampa in the playoffs. It was LaVar who KO'ed Shawn Alexander the following week giving us a real chance to advance to the NFC Championship. Can you name even two impact plays that Holdman has made as Lindsay's annointed WLB??? And don't blame Lindsay for McIntosh developing at a glacial pace, because he won't take the blame for that either.

I've seen a couple of lindseys pressers and he seems like a real jackass.
