  • Nate Solder Out For The Season

    The Patriots starting left tackle Nate Solder is out for the season with a torn bicep. Tom Brady was sacked 11 TIMES by the Cowboys in last Sunday's game. I know they have some good coaches up in New England but I can't believe they can create a starting caliber Left Tackle out of thin air. It's time for teams to bring the heat!!

    I don't know if I've ever heard of a team allowing their quarterback to be sacked 11 times and still winning the game, not to mention winning it by so many points. 30-6 after sacking the QB 11 times? That just doesn't make sense. I guess Dallas has too many key injuries to produce any offense. I still think it's funny that Phil Sims said that Weeden will be the starting QB for Dallas next year and right after he said those words he threw an interception, and now he is benched. Not a fan of Sims, he is WAY too arrogant.

      Where did you get 11 times? He was sacked 5 times. I think you got something confused. He has been sacked 11 times all season.

        It was my mistake. I was on the Cowboys website trying to find out how many times Brady was sacked because I thought I remember him getting sacked 5 times in the 1st quarter or first half. I was on the game page between the Cowboys and Patriots and hit "statistics" and it stated that there were 11 sacks. After reading your post I went back to look and that is for the season, not that game. My bad.

          It doesn't matter, they are a machine, they can bring in someone off the street to play LT and they will perform adequately. It all comes down to them having Brady and Bellichick.

            I wonder if this little bit of information has anything to do with it?

            Marcus Cannon is Solder's back at the Left Tackle position. You've heard of him before, right? Yeah, me either. He's a "nobody" as of right now but we will see how long that lasts. Marcus Cannon was picked in the 5th round way back in 2011. Now, I saw way back in 2011 because it seems like THIS is why the Patriots can coach guys up better then most. They have great coaches, period. But, when they draft players, those players actually stick around long enough to learn how to play positions. When the Dolphins draft someone they are gone before you know it. How many guys are still playing for the Dolphins that they drafted in 2011? I am guessing maybe three players. I am hoping that this is a weak spot and they don't get LUCKY like they normally do and fall into talent. They lose a defense tackle and wouldn't ya know it, a great defensive tackle just happens to fall to them in the draft.

              To the best of my knowledge, Mike Pouncey is the *only* member of the 2011 Dolphins draft that is still on the team.

                I believe you are correct but I was referring to a much larger problem then just losing players that were drafted just a few years after the fact. If you look at the 2011 roster and then look at the 2015 roster I "think" there are only about 3-4 players that are left from that team. I am NOT saying the 2011 team was worth keeping, I didn't even look at the roster, what I am getting at is that this is par for the course for the Dolphins. No matter who is the GM, no matter who is the head coach, players just don't seem to stay in Miami long enough to "coach" them. Granted, I don't think they would have learned anything anyway considering the Dolphins haven't had a decent coach since Jimmy Johnson and Shula retired. JMO
