    On April 21, the Dolphins begin voluntary workouts. Hopefully, this will give a little something current to talk about.

    I'm thinking we will get some info on how players spent their off season, good or bad. I'm looking to see what Jordan has done, as well as Brenner, Dallas, Taylor, and some reports on Fox and Shelly.

    Anyone else?

    PS- Had to try to beat Daytona and Nublar on something. LOL

    Agree. He did say that he NEEDED to work with RT in the off season but, as far as I know, was a no show when others were doing the same. Disappointing.

    Yeah, i hate to see us pay someone that amount of money and not have them perform AND not have them attempt to get better.

    You act like it's your money. From what I've heard Wallace is a hard worker. He'll get his reps with Tanny. As far as him not performing, most of the problem had to do with Tanny not getting him the ball deep.

    I've always considered "voluntary" workouts to be mandatory workouts without and punishments given if you miss them. I'm still curious to see what Jordan weighs in at. He should be eating at buffet restaurants every night.

    Im not sure why some fans want to ***** when a player doesn't do voluntary workouts. If they do it atta boy but if not they do have personal lives. Just as long as they study playbook and come in shape I don't care.

    I also thought voluntary was just a word.
    I bet Peyton Manning has ALL his receivers practicing. Just because he wants to practice.

    I can see Manning going over to their house and telling them to get the **** out of bed and get to work.

    Maybe Tannehill should be calling up Wallace and telling him to get his *** to the practice field!

    How's this for clout: if we continue to be mediocre we will all lose our jobs and our fat contracts! Wallace this may be your last season in Miami and you may not make half your salary back! But win and you're set and will get all that money, so let's get our asses in gear and practice long and hard because the Mannings, Brady's and Brees are practicing and you can bet your last dollar they're trying t be better than last year at all costs!

    It should be interesting to hear how Brenner comes in. He did show some potential but, was over matched when it came to NFL strength. Phins players have said that he is the first one in, and last one to leave in workouts last year, and was the hardest worker on the team.

    I thought he may take another year to develop but, could be a very good surprise. I'm hoping.

    Interesting story that Rich Gannon tells. One year he made the AFC Pro Bowl team with Manning. Peyton insisted on getting the bulk of the snaps in practice until the Pro Bowl wide receivers got everything right. Gannon got frustrated having made the Pro Bowl team, but Manning gave him no respect. He practices for perfection every time - even in Honalulu when all the other players are there to have some fun. Manning will go down as one of the greatest QBs of all time but it was clear from Gannon's comments that he insists on getting his way all the time.

    Just like the runt, that is his brother.
    How many guys can get drafted in the first round and tell the NFL where THEY want to play and get away with it.

    Anyone care to predict how Jordan, Brenner, and Dallas will come in on Monday? I'm betting Jordan and Brenner come in physically ready to make an impact. Don't know enough on Dallas but, have to think he will do the same.

    Looking forward to Daytona and Nublar filling us in by Tues, if not before. lol

    While this sounds all hardcore it's not true. If the Dolphins were crazy enough to cut Wallace some other team would pick him almost immediately at an extremely attractive salary. GMs on other teams can view tape. They know the problems involved in Tannehill to Wallace on the long ball are almost completely on Tannehill. Wallace has been getting open. Tannehill just hasn't been able to hit him.

    Tannehill is the one with something to lose in this situation. If he doesn't start hitting Wallace on the long ball this year he will quickly find himself in Henne territory -- a backup quarterback with a backup quarterback contract on a different team.

    Here is my position on the deep ball: Wallace DID beat his man deep, but the play design was like 40 or 50 yards down field which is a very low percentage throw, obviously. Wallace did not fight for the ball much of the time.

    On the flip side, RT can throw deep for explosive plays, but they might be in the plus 20 to 30 yard range.

    The "Randall Cunningham looper" is a tough ball for any QB.

    I like what Philbin said of a missed deep pass after the Saints game, something like: the pass was "competitive" and Wallace's effort was "competitive." Meaning it was a decent effort by both but they both have room to improve. And I think that statement could apply to pretty much every deep ball between Tannehill and Wallace.

    They are in #STRONGER mode because phase I is only about strength and conditioning. Makes much more sense than #BETTER or #WINNING. Those sound corny. If you're gonna criticize at least don't be corny.

    Damian Williams just said in his interview that 36 guys came in off their own bats before organised activities began. He seemed pretty surprised at the commitment and hunger in the squad. I'm guessing that's not what happened in Tennessee.
