    TV Jamie Dukes on Mike Wallace

    Just watched some NFL Network and they had a clip of Mike Wallace being asked if he felt any pressure now being a #1 WR and getting his big pay day.

    Wallace simply replied "No" and said that he puts enough pressure on himself everyday to be good for himself, his family, his teammates, his team, the organization.

    Then they cut to Jamie Dukes and his interpretation of it is that Mike just wants to get paid and "hang out" down in South beach. Maybe get 1000 yards but he doesn't want to win.
    Also says the two moves at LB were lateral moves and we are setting ourselves up for "cap (hell)" down the road. Says Dolphins are not a superbowl team, not even a playoff team. Laughed off the notion of the Dolphins making the playoffs.

    To my knowledge, the contracts are cap-friendly this year, they are huge cap hits in 2014 but come back down to reasonable cap hits in 2015. I suspect that this was done knowing that Ryan Tannehill or Ireland will want to start negotiations on a new contract in 2015. So I don't see these contracts the same way that Jamie Dukes does.

    There was no mentioning of the Dustin Keller pick-up either.

    So, is Jamie Dukes right about Wallace and the FA moves so far?
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    "I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

    You won't ever go wrong by assuming that Jamie Dukes is never right about anything. At all. Ever.

    He could be. It's a very real concern for first-time bug money guys (eg Sean Smith). Not to mention, he already has a ring. That drive to be great...not a lot of players have it.

    I felt like punching him when he started talking. He was completely off the mark on everything. He said we won't make the playoffs like it's a given we're going to only win 6 games or something.

    I just had an A/C repairman in. After shooting the **** for awhile, I have no doubt he's more qualified to discuss the NFL than Jamie Dukes.

    The two new LB contracts are pretty much a wash because Dansby and Burnett were set to have cap hits close to $16M the next two seasons.

    For an 'analyst', Dukes really needs to do some research before he speaks.


    - Hall of Fame Safety Rod Woodson on Dan Marino playing in today's NFL:
    "...the best quarterback I believe is Dan Marino..."
    "If he played with these rules, he'd throw for 100,000 yards."

    Dukes is a guy that only finds bad in anything a team does. I don't understand why NFLN continues to employ him.
