Defensive end Phillip Merling suffered an Achilles tendon injury and will miss the 2010 season.
Not that I feel bad for Merling, because the dude punched his pregnant girlfriend back in May, so he can help himself to a heaping sack of karma dicks up the ass. But this is a major hit for a defensive line that features middle-tier type players and no Jason Taylor. So now first overall pick Jared Odrick will have to step up, as well as Koa Misi, Tony McDaniel and Star Wars character Ikaika-Alama Francis. Holy fartknockers we're in trouble.
However, Shitface McGee is reporting that the Fins might now go after Cowboys defensive end Marcus Spears. Bill Parcells drafted Spears in 2005 when he coached the Cowboys, and all indications are Spears is on the outs in Dallas anyway. So, there's that.
So to recap, Phillip Merling used a pregnant lady's face as a speed bag and we let Jason Taylor go to the Jets and now the Dolphins biggest question mark heading into training camp has gotten even more question marky. The success of our defensive line now lies in the hands of Odrick, Bang Bus and a bunch of fuckers from the Mos Eisley cantina. I think I can sum up everyone's feelings when I say, assballs. Assballs to this whole situation!
