Backup C Sam Brenner left the field on a cart this morning. So now the Fins are down to Shelly Smith at center and Nate Garner. And Garner has been working as the back-up left tackle primarily. So if this Brenner injury is serious, the Fins will be in the market for a center ASAP.

UPDATE: Shelly Smith with multiple bad snaps in the first part of practice today at center was pulled from the first team. Nate Garner now working first team at Center

Pouncey being out is the obvious impediment, however, I sure hope Miami doesn't fool around and goes and grabs a veteran. Garner has also been given plenty of chances the past couple of years showing promise only to play subpar football. Shame on Philbin and company if we go into this season with Garner as the saving grace at center. Sorry, that is not the answer and been there done that. Is this really rocket science for these guys to have a friggin clue?

Hickey messed this up back in March. He could've signed Alex Mack and moved Pouncey to guard. Instead he dawdled about after signing Albert. If the o-line performs as badly as last season, you can bet that Ross will clean house

Man, I don't know, but my hope is that they at the very least go sign a veteran, bring him in and see if he is going to be better at holding the fort down until Pouncey is healed up.

I know no one knew Pouncey would go out from surgery, but our offensive line woes are still glaring, this just makes it even more challenging.

Our running game will blow, but he is a decent pass protector.

Given this offense is more of a throwing offense, I expect they'll make a move on someone fairly soon.

How can anyone bet on what Ross will do? He searched forever to find a GM willing to work with an inept coach and an arse kissing power hungry woman

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are still keeping an eye on free agent C Samson Satele.
The Dolphins are trying to convert G Shelley Smith into a center. He's never snapped in his NFL career and is struggling at training camp with bad snaps. Satele is by no means a world beater at the center spot, but he's a veteran and knows protections and can make line calls. Smith is a better fit at guard.

I am thinking that Satele may be the best choice of a bad lot.

Keeping an eye on him? We only have Brenner and Garner because Smith is NOt a freaking center!!! I sware if we don't get some veteran help before this season starts i'm so DONE with Philbin (isn't he an OL coach?)

Get Satele, move Smith back to guard. You'll still have adequate run blocking outside of the guards...

This is a coaching issue, and a dumb one. Sign satele NOW! They can't be this dumb.
