    Mattj is a radio host in Houston, I think. 610 or 790, I don't remember.

    Here's what he reported:

    Well, all the Diles hater don't have to worry bout bitching about our team's best LB this season after every game now! :rolleyes:

    Not good at all. I guess Adibi will be activated, if he's even healthy himself.

    If it's MattJ as in Matt Jackson then 610.

    I guess this isn't the worst thing that could've happened...but...it's about 1 position away from it.

    Adibi, where art thou?

    I guess now we'll know how far Ryans has fallen or how healthy he really is. If his tackles remain low even with Diles out, then we know Ryans is having some trouble this year.

    This really sucks. Diles was one of the few bright spots on our defense

    ...and our season begins to unravel.

    This Sunday we start fighting for our draft position.

    Man that hurts! He was starting to really play well for us.

    Hard knocks are starting hit us on injuries. First Shaub and now Diles. Damn.

    That's a huge blow to the defense.

    Ryans is gonna have to return to his old self ASAP or the swiss cheese defense is gonna get even worse :(

    I still say that Ryans is injured, resulting in the mediocre play.

    Nope - he's still there, although I did just see that the Dolphins signed Brandon Frye off of the practice squad. The spot's already been filled with some guy named Anthony Oakley. Don't know anything about him, but maybe he's got a shot?

    Well with Schaub out for 2-4 weeks and Diles now out for the season this is a bummer. So who fills in for Diles, Adibi,Coley or can Bentley play OLB?


    edit: Bentley can play OLB, cool, I liked what I have seen from him in the times he has played. Adibi will get more playing time, I hope he can stay healthy.

    "I feel terrible for Zach because he was playing so well, but through adversity comes opportunity..."

    WHAT?!?!

    "...through adversity comes opportunity..."

    Am I missing the context of this? Because taken as it is, it comes across as extremely foolish to say that Zac is now going to have "opportunity" due to this injury--What "opportunity" is there for Zac? An opportunity to lose playing time until preseason game # 1 in 2009? An opportunity to undergo surgery, and have to watch everyone else and hobble around on crutches and have his leg itch and stink due to the cast? Yeah, that's a golden opportunity...(sigh)

    If taken the other way, then the comment means that the "opportunity" is for someone below Zac on the depth chart. And that means, "Well, Zac. That's a bummer for YOU...but, look on the bright side of this deal: Someone else gets to play in your spot!"

    There's no freaking "opportunity" to be had here, Gary Kubiak. We just lost one of the only guys on the defense who was playing well. Someone please tell me I should have read more of the article than just the quote above. Tell me our head coach did not just say that.

    Opportunity for another player to step up, nothing else.

    Think you're reading too much into his statement :)

    Opportunity... for rookies? I guess Kubiak is in tank mode as well.

    Whose games have you been watching? a season has to "ravel" before it can unravel and we've got a 3 game home winning streak over teams that were a combined 2-3,768 or some such to hang our hats on.

    Zach Diles will really not even be missed this week. I'm sure we can give up our usual 28-34 points with a replacement in his spot if we try hard. Reeves might have to play with one eye covered to do it but I have faith that he's got it in him to get it done.


    Oh and we should all look on the bright side. Now with Diles going down Richard Smith is well on his way to having another excuse for his defense to finish around 25th in the league. It'll buy him another season because we all know that nobody on earth can build a defense without 11 quality starters that stay healthy all year long. It's unpossible!
