    Re: Jonathan Martin has come a long way since pre-season

    How on earth do you know what his long term fitness will be like? Long is a number 1 draft pick, is the leader of this offense, is one of the most respected players in the NFL and there isnt even a chance that he will leave the Dolphins.

    The thing wiith Martin is you almost never hear his name called...which is a damn good thing when you're an O-Lineman! By the way, I think Dolphin fans who bash Jake Long should be drawn and quartered.

    Really? No chance he leaves? I'm telling you money changes all that stuff you mentioned. I will not be shocked if Jake Long is on another team next season with a fat contract.

    Well I guess this is as good a time as any to admit I was 100% wrong about Martin. I watched him ALOT in college and swore up and down that he would be at least a year on the bench. MAN was I wrong. He has played REALLY well, and now with the solid play Jerry, teams have no idea where we are going to run. Last year we always ran left behind Rich and Jake, but this year we can run to either side and we don't have to worry about Columbo diving out of the way to give the DE a free run at the QB. Our OL is playing as good as any OL in the NFL right now. They are turning into a strength of the team. Cudos!!!

    Actually our rush numbers are quite interesting
    Right End......3.28 yards per rush #21/32 in the NFL
    Right Tackle..3.15 ypr #25
    GCG MIDDLE..4.52 ypr #7
    Left Tackle...4.28 ypr #11
    Left End.......4.19 ypr #15

    Martin still has the bulk up and get stronger if he continues at right tackle...3.15 isn't going to cut it
    but it is a huge improvement over Colombo who was 31st with 2.62 yards per rush

    In 2010 we were 15th(4.14 ypr) and 7th(4.61 ypr) running behind right tackle and right end

    How about Jim Turner just being a BAMF and coaching these guys like they should have been. It's remarkable to me how much better this oline is under his coaching

    The fact that everyone is not talking about him is great news, he's doing his job right, right now. No more "false start #71 offense" or "Holding #71 offense" calls, like there were in pre season.

    I think we got first round talent in the 2nd round here, great value pick.
