    Default Gates Believes, do you?

    Clyde is starting a B.I.M (believe in Miami) movement.

    Miami Dolphins receiver Clyde Gates is pushing a movement. “South Florida’s got a lot of passionate fans. There are ups and down in this game. In my heart I BELIEVE this is going to be a good season for us,” Gates said. “I believe we’ll turn it around and win. I believe in Miami.”
    “I’m ready,” Gates said. “I’m not really big into saying I’m going to do this and that, but believe in me.
    “I’m finally healthy. I played all of last season with a torn groin. I fought through it, but now I’m ready,” said Gates
    I think Phillbin will put this guy in position to make some plays and really open the field and show us his speed. It would be nice to get something out of him this season with the absence of Brandon.

    What do guys think about his potential this season?

    Ah-hah

    I've been critical of CGates lack of production, if he was playing with a bum groin that helps to explain why he did not show more.

    Wonder if DTrain had a similar issue?

    IIRC correctly, didn't Thomas have some hamstring issues during the early portion of the season? After the Browns or Chargers game I believe is when it started and that sort of gave way to Reggie Bush's rise. Reggie didn't really do much of anything until that first Jets game.

    No, not really. They're going to have to prove it to me.

    Yeah that was surprising to hear about his injury. So now I'm hoping we can see that speed open up the field.

    How the hell can you look that fast with a torn groin? I mean yeah he didn't produce but he looked BLAZING at times.
    On the draft Quentin Rollins bandwagon.

    That's a weird photo. Clyde looks as big as Vontae. Well, except the neck part.

    Here's a chance for football to regain some culture and spirit in our town and team, let's hope the fans don't let them down.

    Hard to tell without seeing what type of shoes each has on. I don't think their heights are greatly dissimilar but a pair of flip flops vs hoop shoes can add a couple inches to a person.

    Things is OF, the Garrard signing is not what most wanted to happen, and subtracting Marshall and not adding anyone to replace him has put a wet blanket on the offseason.

    To me, we are well positioned IF we were more of a power running/good defense team, however Philbin was brought in to boost the passing attack..so which way is the team headed?

    It's still a bit early to be formulating what this team will be able to accomplish. We haven't even had a practice, OTA or anything other than a couple of days of weight room activity, BTW, something this team needed a lot of work at given what they showed last season. The draft is yet to come and there are still a few FAs out there that might be interesting additions for depth...there isn't reason to melt down and panic, but it's nice to hear that some of the players are ready to start the process...

    Nope, I see a repeat of last year or worse(Bills won't be as easy to beat this year).

    That's what I wana know. I guess it depends how bad you tore it.

    I just sprained mine in Sept and I wasn't running anywhere for like 5 months.

    Then again I don't have access to that platelet treatment


    Still that makes me much more optimistic about him.
