    Ben Volin also writes for the Palm Beach Post, not the Miami Herald. Does Volin have to produce articles with the same frequency as Salguero? Are there other writers who cover the Dolphins at the PBP like there are at the Herald? There are different types of articles that journalists are tasked with. Salguero's job is often not to "report news" (most of which is complete "press release" style drivel that a manatee could write). It is to write editorials. I agree with you about Barry Jackson, though. He is excellent.

    Yeh the game had nothing to do with the fact that one team was playing for something really important and another team was playing for nothing. Oh btw, the Patriots are one of the best teams in the league and the dolphins are still trying to find their way with a far inferior roster of talent. But yeh it's a coaching thing.

    I'll be waiting.
    Citing his "source high up within the organization", Armando was able to break the news that the Mike McCoy hiring was imminent.

    Armando had a webshow last year for a couple of months(it failed and they pulled the plug). Maybe I am wrong, but I think I remember there being a thread on here that on his show the news was broken that Philbin was eliminated from head coach search. That night Philbin was hired.

    One of his guests told him that Philbin was eliminated. He made a phone call during the next commercial break and reported that it was untrue.

    He reported that McCoy thought himself as the leading candidate. Chris Mortensen reported the same thing and went a step further saying that Ireland told him that if everything went well that he would be named head coach the next day.

    I was genuinely happy when I thought Armando was leaving for Boston. We need more like Ben Volin, less like Armando

    Yeah, because spelling never matters for anything.

    I take it you've never written a paper and received a passing grade.

    Ben, if you are still reading this thread, you do a phenomenal job. Your work is much appreciated. Your writings are must read and your radio appearances with Joe Rose and others are must-listen.

    I would agree with that. But wind conditions were unfavorable and because of that the Pats earlier tried to go for it rather than kicking a FG. Under normal circumstances the Pats would have taken a FG as well rather than going on 4th and 6 or 4th and 7.

    You can give Philbin as much rookie credit as you want to but in game 16 you have to know what to do in these situations.
