  1. The Phins current starting kicker’s name is Dan CARPENTER. He actually made the probowl for us once. C’mon MAN!!

  2. “Dolphins K Dan Campbell is slated to make five times as much money as rookie K Caleb Sturgis, which means that if their camp competition is close, Sturgis will get the job.”

    Pretty sure he didn’t change is name from Carpenter…

    “Cardinals QB Larry Fitzgerald really hopes the team’s quarterback carousel is over.”

    I guess he couldn’t be any worse under center than what they had last year.

    Seriously guys, get your $#!¥ together. Smh

  3. Bernard Pierce can break tackles, running against the Ravens’ own defense (or what’s left of it)? Is there something surprising about that?

  4. I’m almost positive Larry Fitzgerald doesn’t play QB he is a WR. I’ll check on that for you. Wait, don’t you have guys who do that?

  5. Why would Jeff Ireland sign a 3rd kicker and pay him like Dan Carpenter?… Maybe they plan on running a 3-kicker-Wildcat formation… This Campbell guy better be good.

  6. Who the hell is dolphins kicker Dan Campbell. They have Dan carpenter who is a great kicker. He’s done great but I will never forget his last kick in college at little ol 1-AA Montana a 47 yarder I believe, to go to national championship and wide left. I think it was his only miss that year if not he didn’t miss many more than 1

  7. Dan Campbell has never missed a kick for the Dolphins. Not one. So I don’t know why he wouldn’t get the job.
