Courtesy of Miami Dolphins P.R.

MIAMI – The Miami Dolphins have promoted safety D.J. Campbell from the teams practice squad to the active roster, the team announced. To make room for Campbell the team has placed tackle Jonathan Martin on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness List.

This is the second promotion to the active roster for Campbell. He was originally signed to the team’s practice squad on October 7, 2013, where he spent the next four weeks prior to be promoted on November 11, 2013. While on the active roster Campbell recorded three special teams tackles. Campbell was waived on November 25, 2013 and signed back to the practice squad on November 27, 2013.

The 6-0, 205-pound Campbell entered the NFL as a seventh round pick (216th overall) of the Carolina Panthers in the 2012 NFL Draft. Campbell spent the entire 2012 season on the Panthers active roster, appearing in five games and registering 12 tackles and one pass defensed. He was placed on the Reserve/Injured list by Carolina on September 1, 2013 and released eight days later on September 9, 2013.

A four-year letterman at California (2008-11), Campbell complied 110 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble, four fumble recoveries, two interceptions and seven passes defensed for the Golden Bears. As a senior he earned All-Pac 23 honorable mention after starting 13 games and recording 71 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions. Born on July 24, 1989, Campbell attended Cheyenne High School in North Las Vegas, Nev.

Mike Pouncey claims that he will play Sunday

Many reports came in from Davie saying that Dolphins Center Mike Pouncey had returned to practice Tuesday morning. Dolphins’ fans excited to hear the news, the Dolphins have been struggling to replace the holes in the offensive line left by the absence of Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin.

Let’s Play: You’re Fired!

Joe Philbin.

What does he bring to the table as a Head Coach? When he was the Packers Offensive Coordinator, it wasn’t his offense that Aaron Rogers used, he didn’t even call the plays! Mike McCarthy was the play caller. Some believed that Philbin was instrumental in the development of Matt Flynn (who was thought to be a good QB at the time) and Aaron Rodgers. Maybe he can do the same when we draft a young Quarterback, maybe he can turn Tannehill into Aaron Rogers 2.0…

Then we find out that Philbin had nothing to do with Rogers’ development. It was the Quarterbacks Coach at Green Bay that developed Aaron Rogers and Matt Flynn. It feels like we were duped, all of us, including you Mr. Ross.

Philbin is not an offensive guru, he doesn’t play call, and he also doesn’t develop talent. His strength, according to Stephen Ross, is his attention to detail.

wait…

ATTENTION TO DETAIL? Philbin? The guy that had no idea his starting Left Tackle was being bullied to the point that the player ran away from the team? The same coach who’s offense tells the opposing team if the play that’s about to be run is either a pass or run play depending on weather Tannehill says GO or GO-GO.

Surely this cannot be his best quality, this is proven by his own admission of not knowing what’s going on in his locker room. The truth is Philbin adds nothing as a Head Coach. He’s not an offensive genius like Sean Payton and Chip Kelley. He’s not a players coach like Rex or Dungy. He’s not even a “young-project” coach like Jason Garrett. Philbin adds nothing to the table. It may be time for Stephen Ross to look for a Head Coach with some experience and doesn’t have to learn on the job.
