After yet another impressive victory to start off the season, the Miami Dolphins are finally earning the recognition that they have deserved. For a team that doesn’t receive a lot of media attention, the Dolphins have been the talk of multiple analyst and experts.
It seems as if the big free agents that Jeff Ireland has brought in are working. New linebackers Phillip Wheeler and Dannell Ellerbe and Philip Wheeler have a combined 38 tackles during the first two games, Brent Grimes has made his presence known in the secondary and despite having a quite week one, wide receiver Mike Wallace had a breakout game, catching nine balls for 115 yards and a touchdown.
Miami Dolphins corner back, Brent Grimes, who had a key interception in the fourth quarter in yesterdays had this to say “We’re 2-0 and we’ve won two games on the road. In this league that’s huge.”
Grimes wasn’t the only member of the Dolphins organization who had something positive to say after the week two victory. On the teams official website there is a video of coach Joe Philbin’s speech to the team after the game. He is quoted saying that they have a “helluva team in the making.”
Although the defense has been absolutely spectacular, the best thing about this season so far has been the progression of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill has looked very poised and confident during the first two games of the season. With a full year under his belt, it seems as if he has a different approach to the games this year. He is the leader of the offense and he is clearly showing that.
After what I have seen this past two weeks, I am very excited to see what the rest of the season has in store for the Phins. I think it’s safe to say that Philbin hit it right on the money yesterday, the Dolphins have a bright future ahead of them.
Thanks for Reading and more importantly, PHINS UP!
