In fact, week three is the one game that most will put any significance to. It’s the only game coaches will game plan for and the only game where starters can expect to see more than two quarters of play.

For every minute of ever pre-season games, coaches are evaluating the talent that they have and key members of the Dolphins are not meeting those expectations.
