Training camp started today. Feel free to post any pictures or tidbits you find.
Hope it's minor.
Wish I was there! Stupid work...
Tomorrow I'm all over it. Is DJ there this morning?
We've seen this before.
Sean Smith is so bad, he is getting beat by 85.....
Tackles him anyway haha halarous.
Has Jake broken the practice facility yet?
Will Yeatman as a Tackle is interesting, especially if he's already second team. Tend to think he could see work as as a tackle eligible.
1 on 1 interview with Jeff Ireland from Last night
Ken LaVicka @KLV760 Chad Johnson cannot break tackles. He just can't. He needs to make sure he hands are there because his speed, cutting, isn't. #Dolphins
This kind of contradicts what we've been hearing thus far. CJ doesn't have the straight line speed, but short burst and cutting is his forte. All of a sudden he can't even do that?
Not a surprise.
check out randy starks new hair cut....
Odrick wreaking Havoc...expecting big things from him this season.
yeah same here, he is due
Of all the reports out there, I think LaVicka is the most idiotic by far. I know a lot of people here really dislike Omar Kelly but I truly think he has grown a lot from a football IQ standpoint over the past few years. Still arrogant but most reporters are...
Cantor says Soliai is at 330.
Volin says Soliai is Vernon's hair stylist.
Hahahaha I was there when he smashed in the cement wall with a medicine ball last year, lol. **** was crazy...
reggie bush still working overtime....
Clicked on the link for Vernon's photo and this was in the feed.
LMAO! Watch out if you have prying eyes close by...
LaVicka is agenda first. I can't even follow him because of it.
Rookie hazing? lol
Yeah, I have been saying this for a while. I made a HUGE post about Odrick prior to the draft and why having him would prevent us from considering Coples. I really think Odrick stars this year.
MAN thanks for the link!
You can be the Robin to my Batman in the "Odrick will shine" camp.
heh... not going to say that, but it certainly puts pressure on Tannehill to get his *** in camp if all three quarterbacks, including Devlin, shine in practice.
I dont think Tanny has a chance in hell to start at this point...so the urgency to sign should be in his corner.
I really want Gates to succeed.
Wouldn't it just be our Dolphins to have him be the last rookie unsigned... on into the regular season?
will it translate to his tackling?
Here is another HUGE point in my opinion: We have a "Quinton Coples" on our team right now... and his name is: Jared Odrick. He can play the RDE position on rushing downs and then kick in and rush the passer from the DT position on 3rd downs. Here is my argument for him:
1.) He had 6 sacks over the last 11 games of last season.
2.) He has a similar body to Coples. Odrick is 6'5 and 304(at the combine he was 296) Coples is 6'6 and 285. I think if you tell Odrick your plans he can lose 15 pounds before the start of the season and be right about where Coples is.
3.) Odrick started his Penn State career off as a DE and was later moved to DT. Very similar to Coples. If you watched Coples play this year they very often lined him up at DT. Jon Gruden even had this to say about Odrick,
... If you really want a guy like Coples on your team I really think Odrick could be that man and play the "Coples role"."
Wanting to tackle is mostly mental.....
from what I have seen for a few years, Smith doesn't like tackling...
Garrard making big chunk passes. like that. Like what I am hearing about Fuller as well.
Any word on Rishard Matthews? Really liked him in the draft (i know late round pick).....but from the small bits I saw on tape, he reminded me of a very poor mans Steve Smith (carolina)....
Sounds like Stephen Hill is tearing it up in his first camp practice with the Jets, even making catches over Revis.
We're going to regret passing on him, IMO. That was my guy at the spot we picked in the 2nd round, couldn't believe he was still available. We passed on him and it became a double whammy because it allowed the Jets to snap him up. I like Jon Martin but still, that one stings.
Yea Fuller has been active early...I assume his comfort within the offense is giving him a leg up on some of the others. Should be interesting.
That's the first tackle Sean Smith has ever made.
