Post them up!
The Dolphins need a breath of fresh air. They thought they had it when they destroyed with the Wildcat till everyone figured it out. Then it was back to non-existence being overshadowed by other power teams in the division like the Patriots.
They have been searching for a replacement for Dan Marino since he left our organization. Coach Foster was brought in to change all that. After staring on Hard Knocks this year he named Ryan Tannehill the starting QB believing that he was that guy. Being a QB is hard in the NFL. Being a rookie QB is an even tougher challenge with no WR to speak of. With the veteran presence in the backfield of Reggie Bush he has help. Rookie RB Lamar Miller is Coach Foster project player on O sharing the snaps with Bush. Gifted with great speed and agility he has high upside and will take over when Reggie calls it quits. It will not be an easy path to victory tho. With decent wide outs and a stud underrated TE look for the Dolphins in a few years deep in playoffs.
A Karlos Dansby lead defense is always a threat to running backs. Coming over from Arizona(thank you!) he has become the heart and soul of this Miami D. Sean Smith and Richard Marshall(Also from Arizona!) anchor the corner slots. The Nickel corner slot is up for grabs but held between and Nolan Carrol and De’Andre Presley currently. LOLB Josh Kaddu is Coach Foster’s project player on D. 70 zone with 74 tackle and 87 hit power at 81 speed he looks to be a force when he gets some years under his pads.
This side of the ball is littered with talented playmakers and has the ability to put up points in a hurry. Matt Ryan at QB is one of the best when it comes to delivering it those guys and he's in his prime. On the outside is the young and explosive combination of Roddy White and Julio Jones. Most think this is Jones' season but Roddy will fight for every catch and may still have a few big years left in his tank. Michael Turner will tote the rock a healthy 20 times per game but the Falcons staff want's to start lowering his workload as he enters the twilight of his career. Scat back Jaquizz Rodgers is likely to get most of those carries and he provides a difficult matchup for most defenses with his lateral quickness and ability to beat most linebackers. The offensive line is solid across the board but won't consistently take over games, this may be a position they address in the near future.
The defensive unit has been looked at as the weakness of this team for a few years now and they will be expected to be much improved this season. The front office has already made a deal bringing in Richard Sherman, Bobby Wagner, and K.J Wright to help add some youth and range to the back 7. The front four is a group built to attack and get after the QB but they aren't known to be the best at defending a power attack and that could prove to be this teams kryptonite. For the future this team will be looking for a duo of safeties that can cover more ground and man up on defenses that like to run spread.
