There is still a teenaged boy somewhere inside this 44 year old body that wanted so badly to change the title of this but alas the mature adult in me thought otherwise. Regardless of a witty title the biggest enigma for Miami Dolphins fans thus far has been the unknown that is new GM Dennis Hickey. Unlike his predecessor Jeff Ireland, there is no solid base to grind up in an effort to glimpse what exactly Hickey’s plans, ideas, or knowledge strengths really lie.
Hickey spent 18 years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and whether Miami hired him or not, the new regime in Tampa would have let Hickey hit the streets. Miami, blanketed tightly in a confused off-season and GM search hired Hickey for one of two reasons. Either he was legitimately the best candidate or the only one willing to take the job. Hickey will try and prove the latter as wrong.
Over on TheFinsiders, Andy Cohen of Dolphins Digest sat down with the new GM and talked him up. While the interview doesn’t shed a huge amount of light on Mr. Hickey, it’s still more than what we knew yesterday. All NFL and likely every other sports GM’s are hard working. The hours they spend preparing every day is exhausting to think about. Hickey is no different in that regards.
