After OTA’s Dolphins first year coach Joe Philbin announced that the Dolphins will be featured on the newest season of HBOs’ Hard Knocks.

When asked about the reasons they chose to be featured on the show Philbin had this to say;

“Number one it was a football decision and it was made by the football operations staff. Our owner, Steve Ross, supported our decision but in no way, shape or form forced us to make this decision. I’m personally very excited about it and I shared my thoughts about it with our football team this morning. It’s a football show and it’s a show that’s going to showcase our players and the great group of men that we have assembled here in Miami as they go through training camp.

“The second thing is I think it’s a great opportunity for us to connect with our fans and to the people that aren’t going to be able to come out here on a daily basis in 110-degree heat index weather and watch our guys participate in training camp. The third thing is I think it’s a chance for us to show the new direction, the identity of this football team, where we’re headed and at the same time also connect with our past and the great history, tradition and heritage that we have here in Miami.” Courtesy of MiamiDolphins.com

The show will air its first episode on August 7th and will air on Tuesdays for 5 four hour episodes.

While the Dolphins may end up being an entertaining team for the world to see, as of today, besides Reggie Bush, I see nothing entertaining about this team. My choice would’ve been the New York Jets. Tim Tebow, Rex Ryan, it would’ve been a disaster waiting to happen, and I’m all for disaster and chaos in situations like these. Though I understand why the Jets would turn down the opportunity, I think it would’ve been a ratings bonanza.

Nonetheless, I will watch, since Reggie Bush is on the team we’ll get a Kim Kardashian cameo. I think that’s a backfield we can all enjoy.


Tears in my Henne

Chad Henne has a long road to tow ahead of him. The season hasn’t started and he’s already been booed by his fans at training camp and had them chanting the name Kyle Orton as he stood on the sideline. But that isn’t the story, Chad Henne said to the media that the boos and chants of Kyle Orton got under his skin. No, no, no; as the starting quarterback you can’t admit that the fans rattled you. I understand that you may not like them chanting someone else’s name, but you never let them see you sweat. You keep doing your thing and show them that you’re the guy, not cry and whine to the media. Up until this point I had been a supporter of Henne that he needed more time to show whether he was the guy or not. Now, ship him out there, do whatever it takes to get Kyle Orton down to Miami. The Dolphins may be the biggest head case in the AFC East. You have Brandon Marshall who has borderline personality disorder, and now Chad ‘I cry tears in my’ Henne. The Dolphins will be prime to finish last in the AFC East.

Brandon Marshall gets stabbed by his wife, whatever happened to just grabbing a blanket, a pillow and hitting the couch after an argument? I understand fighting, but if we are man and wife can’t we have a heated discussion without the use of weapons? Maybe Brandon Marshall should equip his home with nerf balls, this way the most you’ll have to deal with are a few welts compared to a few stitches. I know this is no joking matter but, there had to be a better way to fight and release your frustration right? Considering this is not the first time they’ve caused physical harm after fighting, at what point do they get some help? All reports say Brandon will recover in little over a month, but that’s only physical. No one knows how he will recoup mentally. Some will speculate this latest melee Marshall was in was due to a lockout by saying he had too much time on his hands. Why can’t we just say this was a spat that all couples get into that just went too far? Why does the situation have to be something more than that? Once the lockout is officially over, the Miami Dolphins will now have the option of cutting ties with Marshall and would only have to pay him $3 million compared to $15.5 million if they choose to keep him. The Dolphins will have to determine whether Marshall is worth the trouble considering they gave up two 2nd round drafts picks (2010 & 2011) to acquire him. Marshall last season had his worst statistically since his rookie year; yet still having 86 catches, racking up 1,000 yards, but only scoring 3 touchdowns. However, the slight drop in production could be attributed to the inconsistent play of his quarter back Chad Henne. The NFL Draft and free agents moves will give us some insight on how the Dolphins will approach the situation. But for now we wait and see what happens. For Brandon Marshalls’ sake and safety, does anyone know where you can get a daybed; I heard those are pretty comfortable.
