“The Waiting is the hardest part”, that’s where we are right now. Training camp will begin in 13 days. Until then we ravenous fans have to continue to try and blend in with society. We have to act like we don’t want the summer weather to end, as if we just can’t get enough of the beach, that vacations are awesome. Wait – we do love those things but its football we yearn for. We want football AND the beach – but the kids still go back to school!
Here is the training camp schedule. Is anyone going to make it to any practices?

Training Camp will lead directly into the Pre-season and we will begin to see the 2015 Dolphins start to take shape. All of the position battles we anticipate watching will soon be unfolding. Who will the Guards be? Who will the other Corner be? Who will be the nickel corner, the WLB, the 2nd back, the 3rd Tight End? All of these questions will soon be answered. Is there going to be a camp surprise, a guy who comes out of nowhere and makes the team? We will start to get glimpses of the D-Line rotation, which LB packages we’ll see, which Receiver packages in different situations. We’ll start to see if Tannehill develops chemistry with anyone. Is Landry still his go to guy? Maybe Parker becomes a favorite because he catches everything, maybe Jennings for his pure routes, can Stills get deep and is there a rookie or relative unknown poised to steal a spot in the group? Is Jay Ajayi a true steal from the draft? How nicely will Jordan Phillips fit in with a deep experienced group?
The Guard battle is above all others as the dawn of a new training camp nears. Thomas and Turner appear to be the front runners. So will they hold on? Does a rookie like Douglas take a job? How about a vet with some experience behind but nothing we see now to suspect as much. Can Linkenbach, McClendon or Walton come away with the job? For the players who were here last year, they enter year two in the Lazor system and that should give them a leg up and perhaps it does as we see Turner and Thomas in front as it stands. Practicing against the likes of Suh and the rest of that Dline should yield the best players that hopefully we haven’t seen in some time here. Whoever it is we don’t ask much – just total domination.
Hang in there Dolphans, just a couple of more grueling weeks of beaches, bar-b-ques, vacations and summer fun to endure before good ‘ol football starts up again.
Congratulations to Naples and his bride on 38 years together.
I want to thank our friend Bat for the following in regards to espn choosing Bruce over other possibly more deserving courage award nominees:
“My point is that those two were certainly more worthy of a “courage” award than a pathetic aging fop trying to capitalize on his deviations.”
My wish for this season: Please 2015 Dolphins don’t draw Bat’s ire
And Cav Kong, set that beautiful Dolphin watch to Suh time and it should do just fine next December.
Suh is here everything is different now!
