Yesterday afternoon, the Miami Dolphins kicked off their 11th Web Weekend at their training facility in Davie, Fla.
Over 30 web sites dedicated to covering the Dolphins were represented.
After dining in the team cafeteria, current players LB Jordan Tripp and DB Michael Thomas stopped in to answer questions, sign autographs and take pictures.
They were very upbeat about the direction of the team and feel that they are coming together as a group with a single purpose. Which was very good to hear.
After a trip to the team store, radio hosts Greg Likens and Tristin Jones along with alumni Keith Sims and Troy Drayton stopped by to answer some tough questions about this years team.
Both former players feel that the team is about to get on a roll as the coaching staff is becoming aware of this team's srrengths and are putting them in positions to succeed by calling plays that utilize those strengths.
When discussing our shortage package on offense both former players emphasized that although we are a finesse team it all comes to attitude in that our OL has to feel and play as if that one yard turf is their domain.
I asked both alumni if Shula was coaching this team what would its record be? They danced around it like Fred Astaire.
I was personally impressed with the size of DB Michael Thomas. He looked more muscular than LB Jordan Tripp.
On our way out we were pleasantly surprised to meet former star wide receiver Nat Moore, who took pictures and signed autographs as well.
Today's events include a Special Teamers volunteer program at First Church in Coral Springs and a tour of the Training facility with the Webbies Awards banquet following immediately afterwards.
The biggest question by most attendees that is still left unanswered is " Where's Dave Kennedy?"
