    Building a class team in MIA

    People can say what they want about the Jets having a team full of castoffs and characters, chemistry issues, blah blah blah, but that really is a team full of thugs Parcells is putting together down there.

    Happens to every NFL team. It's hard turning off the aggression once you get off the field; sad to say but controlled rage is what you want in every player.

    Yes, but some more than others. Parcells really seems to be losing it down there though, looking at all the goons he's brought onto that team, starting with Brandon Marshall.

    No excuse for beating up a pregnant woman (or any woman but especially that).

    Sorry, but to me there is nothing even remotely close to "controlled" about beating up a pregnant woman.

    I will reserve comment until making sure the "pregnant chick" in question doesn't turn out to be Parcells.

    Merling only hit her after he found out Channing Crowder was the babydaddy.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Guys like Gino Marchetti, Jim Katcavage, Verlon Biggs, et al never felt the need to strike a pregnant woman! THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT KIND OF SICKO BEHAVIOR!

    Crowder pic is pathetic and not remotely funny. At least Clinton Portis was a fine player on the field, never mind the fruitcake outfits. Can't wait to see No Neck launching Crowder into orbit when we play the dolfags.

    And Merling's a cowardly POS

    Miami Dolphins' Phillip Merling arrested, accused of domestic battery

    Dolphins defensive end Phillip Merling, who is entering his third season, has been charged with aggravated battery against his girlfriend, who is pregnant.

    BY JEFF DARLINGTON
    jdarlington@MiamiHerald.com
    Defensive end Phillip Merling became the fourth Dolphins player since February to face criminal charges after a domestic incident Wednesday landed him in the Broward County Jail.

    Merling, who posted $15,000 bond before being released late Thursday afternoon, faces a count of aggravated battery against his girlfriend whom he should have known was pregnant, according to a Broward County Sheriff's report. The arrest was made in Weston.

    At approximately 1:26 a.m., Merling struck his girlfriend, Kristen Lennon, ``on or about her face and head against her will causing redness and swelling,'' according to the report. The victim is pregnant with the couple's second child, the report said.

    The report also noted Lennon sustained a cut to her lip. No more details about the incident were provided. In Florida, aggravated battery is considered a second-degree felony.

    The Dolphins declined to comment on the matter Thursday. Merling's agent, Jimmy Sexton, could not be reached for comment.

    A second-round pick in 2008, Merling is entering his most important season as a pro. He will compete with first-round pick Jared Odrick for a starting job. He has shown flashes of potential during his first two seasons, but the team wants him to make another big step in his career.

    Merling joins a list of Dolphins players from this offseason who have been arrested, including defensive tackle Tony McDaniel, running back Ronnie Brown and cornerback Will Allen. McDaniel was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence Feb. 7. Allen was charged with driving under the influence in Miami Beach on Feb. 20. Brown was charged with DUI on March 20 in his hometown of Cartersville, Ga.

    What does that mean?

    Either way: Douchebaggery at it's worst.

    I wonder when the media will begin to rip Emperor Parcells for putting together a team of bad personalities? You can add the players mentioned in this article with Brandon Marshall, another role model, to the growing list of players on the emperor's roster who have gotten into real trouble.

    But being Parcells is great; Parcells is only mentioned when the dolphins are doing something well. If the players are playing hard its because its "Bill's guys", not Sparano. When there are a lot of talented players drafted or signed on the roster...we'll then he is a great evaluator of talent-no mention of Jeff Ireland. Tom Coughlin wins the Super Bowl with the Giants, 17 years after parcells left the team, and we must read and listen to stories about Bill and his influence on the team through Coughlin

    Life is good when you have people eating out of your hand. Speaking of eating; I wonder when Fatcessa bashes the Jets for having shady players on the team, if he will ignore the very same issues with his boytoy's team.....

    Looks like the Fins picked the right year to draft a DE in round one.

    Don't be mistaken, every NFL team has issues with their players. That's what you get for giving a 22 year old 10 million dollars.

    Also, don't fall into the Mangini circle of thinking, that you need "quality" players with good character. The NFL is about winning. You win a Superbowl, and your team will make more money.
