Mando - please excuse the ignorant question - why do we have the Dallas Cowboys TV crew for a Dolphins game in Miami ?

The Miami Dolphins Media Guide has our long snapper on the cover - is this the final insult to a proud franchise - Go Special Teams !

Hi Mando loved the article - thought provoking and well reasoned. I would like to take you to task for some of the underlying arguments. The average Nfl career is just over 3 years - therefore it is not unexpected that approximately 33% of the starters would rotate each year. As some of the other posters have commented which is better - to constantly churn the roster to allow the cream to rise ? Or to allow players to consistently play together to build continuity ? From seeing the changes along the offensive line throughout 2008 and 2009 I see evidence that this coaching staff favours different looks to see which players take advantage of opportunities over the status quo. As a famous dog breeder once said "if they don't bite as pups they won't bite ever". The commitment to excellence of this staff should not be criticised but rather applauded - the wombat has spoken

Just goes to show up all the BS talk about how the tough training camp in 2008 prevented injuries - same camp in 2009 and the Phins are struck down - the simple truth is that NFL football is dangerous and people get injured - 2008 Phins were lucky - 2009 Phins not so much - Ronnie Brown is just unlucky - any RB would be out if you had the full weight of an NFL player buckle your ankle like that - I reckon we will see a lot of Ricky - a fair dose of Wildpat and perhaps some Ginn in as wildcat QB with Ricky doing the end arounds (or maybe Pigpen) - prediction - 17-13 to the Fins

Mando In Australia where I live if the coach didn't have a case of beer in his suite on the road he'd be fired - Shula should have said come and celebrate with a cold one next time we win on the road - Shula could have done a promo for Becks aka Jimmy Johnson with his "Green Lizards"... WD

no worries about keeping the practice media only since am resident in Australia - very interested in the DB vs WR matchups - the individual matchups in particular how the rookie WRs do against Will Allen and also how the rookie CB's do against Bess etc Very interested in the RG battle but minicamp probably will not show us anything there (apart from who is 1st, 2nd 3rd team etc) Cheers WD
