Hauze Opinion: Here We Go Again!

When I was in college, back in the 70′s, I lived about 70 miles away from a major metropolitan area.  In my dorm room, it was very hard to get good TV reception.  My roomate was always screwing with the rabbit ears on the TV trying to get a good signal.  The problem was that we often missed an entire TV show because he was too busy screwing with the rabbit ears.  And, this routinely happened show after show after show.

Well, here we go again!  It is that time of year for Tony Sparano to do the same thing with the Dolphins offensive line.  He tries this way and tries that way — let’s see if we can get the absolute best make-up.  This year, Tony drafts Mike Pouncey to be the starting Center.  What is the first thing that Tony does?  He brings in a center, of course, to check him out – Shaun O’hara.  Well, that did not seem to be a good idea.  Oh, I know, let’s try Marc Columbo, former Dallas Cowboy, at right tackle and move Vernon Carey to right guard.  And, we’ll sign Micah Kia, tackle from UCLA.  But, how about trying John Jerry at left guard?

Let’s move those rabbit ears around to get a better signal.

What’s the latest?  The Dolphins Official website announced today that they have signed Ray Willis and waived Micah Kia — boy, Kia only lasted a week.  Willis is is 6-6, 304 pound tackle.  He was drafted out of Florida State in 2005 by Seattle in the fourth round and since has played in 44 career games with 26 starts.  He missed all of last year because of a knee injury — oh great!  But, let me repeat myself … he is a 304 pound tackle.  And, I thought Tony likes to get big boys, especially at tackle.  304 pounds?  What in the hell is going on here?

Let’s move those rabbit ears around to get a better signal.

I know, maybe we should resign Pat White and put him at left guard?

Dear Mr. Sparano … The Dolphins went into this off season needing help on the offensive line — especially at guard.  I know there was a lockout.  But, earlier this year, you said that you were NOT going to screw around with the offensive line!  You said you were going to pick five guys and let them bond.  So, please … pretty please … STOP IT!  Stop screwing around with the offensive line.  Pick five guys and let them bond.  PLEASE!  Listen to your own advice and stop it for the good of the team!  We don’t have time, this year,  for this BS!

    keb8880 & ranadicus

    You two sound like jest fans,real Dolphin fans are respectful !

  • ranadicus

    @RandyCarlson

    This entire article is disrespectful to our intelligence. Sparano meant he would not change the o-line up during actual games. Practice/camp is an entirely different matter and nobody should have to explain why this is.

    @ranadicus

    That is a respectful reply (stupid) not so much

  • ranadicus

    @RandyCarlson

    Sorry to disappoint but the article is still stupid.

  • Phinphanatic

    Actually, Sparano said that he would not switch his lineman around in practices like he did the years before…however, im sure he meant after camp when he settles on the starting group…still, for an oline coach he sure struggles with that group.

  • ranadicus

    @Phinphanatic

    Well going by their skill sets it’s because he has like 1 left tackle, 1 center 0 left guards, 0 right tackles and like 9 right guards on the roster.

    Not exactly a recipe for success
