Game 3 of the PRE season
It’s a beautiful (muggy, maybe a hurricane) Saturday evening in South Florida and the newly renovated Sun Life Stadium is open for business in all of it’s glory. Everyone is here. The Dolphins are here. The Falcons are here. The fans are here. The nice leather seats are here, the fancy concession stands, the new not orange seats are all here, everyone is here…
EXCEPT for a Left Tackle for the Dolphins.
Who is going to play Left Tackle in this all unimportant pre-season game?
Will Jason Fox (concussion) be cleared to play? Early indications are – no.
How about Branden Albert? Too risky for his first game back when the starters are expected to play into the third quarter.
So then who? Who cares, that’s who. Atlanta has a horrible defense. Put Dallas Thomas there, put Linkenbach there, put Hawkins there. It shouldn’t matter who plays there in this game the offense should roll.
Did I mention the leather seats?
The Dolphins are suddenly everyone’s darling pick to make a playoff run and possibly unseat New England and take the AFC East title. You can’t do that if you’re worried about a Left Tackle going into the game 3 in pre-season against a crap defense. Put a guy there and go beat them.
Fox and Albert are both expected to be ready to start the season, you know when it matters.
Louis Delmas lost for the season is unfortunate especially for him but for the team as well. So next man up. Aiken and M. Thomas look to be the front runners both will play a lot regardless of which one starts.
Hopefully the team can avoid the ravaging amount of injuries it sustained last year but no matter what it has to be – Next man up. A lot of young players will need to step up during a long season, they have to be ready and they have to be able to be counted on.
All the best to Devante Parker, Koa Misi, Don Jones, Jay Ajayi, Jason Fox, Branden Albert and Jamar Taylor as you guys get ready to return from injury.
