Everything is always roses in the offseason.
We shall see if the team is going to make some tough decisions regarding the roster.
I have to disagree here. This is really good news.
I especially loved what we heard from Tony Lippett. If he is able to get his body in peak condition, he has all the other aspects to be an elite shutdown NFL CB.
Seriously, if he gets bigger,stronger,faster, there will be no stopping him. He has ball skills beyond elite. He has physical attributes that are beyond ideal. He is a very intelligent guy with football smarts and book smarts. Lippett kept a high GPA while excelling at WR and CB for Michigan State. His instincts are great.
If he wins a starting roll and is 110% he is a 5-9 interception guy.
I really hope they do some different things on defense this year so guys like Branch and Suh can get free to use their athleticism and strength. When the Dolphins do the same thing all the time on defense teams can scheme against our defenders strengths. The current scheme just stinks to high heaven.
I agree. We have to go to more of a conventional 4-3 and do different things off of that formation. The question is, Are the coaches smart enough to do that? So far, I would say no.
Lippett tore his Achilles.
Not sure about him getting faster after that.
Stronger and bigger, sure, but you don't really get faster after an achilles injury
Couldnt that be said of basically 75% of NFL players?
Honestly the only thing more I want to hear about T.J.’s community service is he finished the requirements, continued good news on Lippett-always liked his potential.
You don't get it? really? If you pay attention to his film in college and what he has done with the Dolphins so far, it is clear that this player is superior to his peers in many ways.
His body needs to do things as a CB that it didn't have to do as a WR. He has to have his core as strong as humanly possible to increase the speed of his back pedal and to move quickly in and out, and he has to increase his closing speed and his explosion down field when he misses the jam.
If he can accomplish these things physically he has everything else he needs to be elite.
It's good news to hear that these guys are on track and ready to contribute in 2018....we need them back bad.
