The OTA’s are over and the Miami Dolphins players will scatter once again for another few weeks until the next round of something unofficial comes around that they need don’t need to be at. August 1st the training camps begin which means that the annual flock back to South Florida until January begins.
For the Dolphins coaches, the bus doesn’t stop when the players leave. They will evaluate the OTA performances and begin the process of upgrading the team where they can. With a plethora of WR’s, none of which are elite, the team will begin to set their focus on who will not be on the final 53. Yes, they will begin that now.
Over the last week there have been some very solid stories out of Miami. I try not to use their stories to create my own so I will give you the links below to what I consider very good reads. Some are good updates while others are shake your head. Some you will have an opinion on, some you won’t. Some you won’t even care about.
Starting this week, not daily, I will take a look at each player listed on the Miami Dolphins. This should run us through until training camp begins. Some will be more in depth than others. I will pose questions to you, polls will be made, and after each position is covered individually, I will wrap it up with an opinion on the entire group…my opinion, for good or bad. It will be there that I will ask you who makes the roster and who does not. We can laugh at in August. For now, wrap your hands around the news that made the news this week out of the OTA’s.
Hot News: Donald Thomas close to returning? That will be a great TC competition if he does.
Jimmy Johnson lives the high-life! I bet. 3 wasted years in Miami and his only legacy is Dave Wannstedt…brilliant!
Jason Allen excuses! True excuses for sure, but if the Phins can’t find a position that suits him, doesn’t that alone reflect on Allen? You decide.
Joey Porter wins co-MVP award and starts running off with his mouth early…BRILLIANT! (seriously…I love it!)
Chad Pennington wins the Co-MVP award (Dan Marino Award) sharing it with Joey the mouth. Much more subdued.
Jake Grove calls home and tells mom and dad….”I feel young again”. O.k. so I just watched Star Trek Wrath of Khan last night…but this dude has all the makings of a pro-bowl season if he stays healthy.
Pennington hosts a team barbeque…can you imagine how much meat he had to have?
Chad Henne is a joke...his fiance loves it.
Rookie Pat Turner is getting some recognition from his teammates…and more updates.
