It's Called The Flywheel

corkscrew-balloon.com

Did you see the Miami Dolphins defenders doing a new sack dance? A new dance every time the unit did something really well? If not, with a little bit of luck and good planning, you will see it again, and may be seeing a lot of it this season…it’s called the flywheel.

Inspired by Dolphins DC Paul Pasqualoni, the flywheel celebration dance looks like the player is trying to crank start an old model-T. Pasqualoni used cranking the old car as an analogy to getting ramped up. Hard at first but much easier when it gets going.

”Have you ever seen those old cars from way back in the day that you had to crank back up?” Channing Crowder said. “Well, we got a new defense, and we didn’t really know it. So we’re slowly taking steps. And when you first start cranking the wheel, it’s hard. But when you get the momentum going, and you get oil moving, it starts going much smoother.”

So the Phins have a new defense, new faces, a new leader, new attitude, and a new direction…now they apparently have a new dance. Lets hope we see a lot of it.

Topics: Channing Crowder, Miami Dolphins, Paul Pasqualoni

    For some reason this entry just gave me full-blown wood. I hope we see a ton of that dance this year, so much so that we forget JT’s punching out of the box. It’s tough to tell yourself not to get too excited about this team. But then again, the bar has been set so low how can you not be?
