Dolphin's Offense Should Be Fun Tho Season

   The Miami Dolphins have a great set of receivers. We know what Landry and Stills can bring to the table, but this is the year that it's gonna come together for Parker. Now he is healthy and has learned how to be a professional athlete and take care of his body, he has practiced hard and fast and he has not missed ny practice time.

If TE Julius Thomas can stay healthy he can be a major seam threat. But the thing is he wasn't healthy and was used to block a lot instead of as a receiver in Jacksonville , so here's the thing he will now be used properly for his receiving skill set, but at the same time he has become a better blocker because of Jacksonville than when Gase had him in Denver.

Jay-train has been practicing routes and pass catching all off-season because he wants to be the best he can be and Drake can be a burner kind of receiver out the backfield helping to stretch the field and Williams is at least solid.

I do remember Fasano catching some TDs for the Dolphins way back when he was here, he's no speedster but has good hands and defenders don't see him as a pass catching TE , but he can.

On offense the only worry is the Oline but will see how it plays out. I think the line will hold at least middle of the pack, average. I'm hopeful and excited about the team you should be too.

Fans Should Be Excited About Year 2 Of The Adam Gase Era

  • When the 2016 season came, Fanswas optimistic about the the coach and the staff he put together. I specially liked the way Adam Gase was a young up and comming coaching talent and it couldn't hurt that he is known as a QB whisperer. DC. Vance Joseph had such intensity and command when he spoke if he said drop and give me 20, you would've been doing push-ups.
Then the season started, it wasn't pretty, fans was hoping the team would come together. Then when all hope was quickly disappearing and the hole they were in was so big that the season was on life support, the Miami Dolphins experienced an unbelievable turn around that  shocked all fans. For the first time in years the fanbase was having fun and was exited, and why not their  favorite team had finally figured out how to win the close games. Winning close games had eluded the Dolphins for years and years. People say the wins came against bad teams, but as long time fans know we always used to lose the close games and always played down to the competition.
Now if we look in the rear view mirror here is what we see, smoke and mirrors. Gase did it with practically half of the starters out with injuries. I know I know, every team faces injuries but we were decimated. So many players were injured or banged up, more notably we had Rambo a safety we got from his couch (a street free agent)   as our starting free safety. Kiko Alonzo with that broken thumb and cast (how do you tackle a power runner with one hand) same with Branden Albert (how do you block an elite DE with one hand), Pouncey only played in a few games about the same as Jones, Jenkins, Misi, Jordan, Howard, Mitchell , Quddus and Mario Williams and Jason Jones.
With the 2nd season in this system the players should have a leg up on the first because of the experience and knowledge of scheme and playbook that comes with year 2, plus ironing out the players that don't produce or don't fit the scheme. The Dolphins did get a couple player upgrades (gotta love the additions of Julius Thomas and Lawrence timmons). Miami also added 5 draft picks for the defensive side of the ball which struggled badly against the run.
Armed with hopefully a few upgrades and better depth. The Dolphins could become real contenders once again. No more excuses fans don't want to here about tough schedules, they want exciting and fun football, but most of all fans want wins and playoffs.
