Take a few minutes to watch this video of a few Dolphins miked up during practice.  Mike Gesicki, Shaq Lawson, and Jerome Baker talk a lot of smack and seem to be having fun.  Bobby McCain is all business. A really interesting part is when Baker helps new RB Matt Brieda on his blocking technique when picking up a blitz.  Also, it’s fun that the guys tease Kyle Van Noy for being old…but he’s only 29.  That is old for a Dolphin!   Everyone's got jokes | Mic'd Up Week 1 Training Camp Everybody got jokes this week 😂 Posted by Miami Dolphins on Monday,Read More →

The best part about the Dolphins allowing some fans into their home games is that Sean McDermott, the head coach of the Buffalo Bills, is whining about it! I love it!

Most of the news so far, rightfully so, has been about who’s been testing positive and having to stay away.  The latest was Xavien Howard, who’s still recovering fromRead More →

The news hit over the weekend about Jerome Baker and new offensive lineman Ereck Flowers having covid-19. It’s obviously not good news for anyone, but they are also not shocking, unexpected cases. The NFL had protocols in place before camps begun to curb th spread as much as possible. As sports go, the NFL never said “no one will catch Coronavirus; we’re immune.” Instead, they knew it would happen and they have their policies in place.
