    I remember Joe Rose telling about when he was a rookie coming in to training camp with the Dolphins under Shula. Rose said to himself "how in the hell am I going to survive this". He talked about days where they had 3 practices. Can you imagine these prima donnas now practicing three times in one day? They would be bitching and moaning even if all the practices were in the air conditioned bubble.

    My goodness, I can’t belive how this question turned into a hyper focus therapy group on what words were used, exaggerated responses and shots at each other. I thought the man asked a question. Today’s session was closed and we only got press time coverage.

    So very easy to say this in your comfy chair indoors. You wouldn’t last facing LBs and DLs coming to knock your head off.

    Speaking of press time coverage, thought the TE interviews were interesting. We'll see about physically, but mentally the TE room seems like it's going to be much, much stronger.

    In the snow through molasses

    Those teams were tough as nails and rarely lost at home. Having experienced that starting in 1970 and then the post-Shula era from 1995 I have to admit I long for the former.

    If you tied to do now what Shula did then you would kill players - it's just to hot - when I was young average temperature was 82 and it was hot when it was 84-85 now it's in the 90's

    When Shula coaching the Colts, he wouldn't let any water or ice on the field for the players.

    He's not wrong. Ever worked in a warehouse?

    Your average guy who does physical labor for a living would love to do 1-2 hours of outdoor football activities every day in place of what he does, I can guarantee you that.

    Yea I think it's a pretty non-controversial statement that the average guy doing physical labor for a living would love play some football for a few hours a day instead. Had he just said that, I probably wouldn't have responded at all.

    The whole belittling of the work they've put in their whole lives to get there, and the idea of "how dare they complain" because a ton of people would love to take their place (without putting in the literal thousands of hours of practice/games/injury risk without any guarantee of reaching the NFL payday, of course) is just an echo chamber of stupid IMO.

    • Wide receiver Leonte Carroo (knee), safety Jordan Lucas (injury) and wide receiver Thomas Duarte (shoulder) are not practicing
    a bit pointless to point out there not practicing when there injured

    Not to sure you can take away much from OTA's except Tannehill really is moving around well and just maybe we hit big signing FA Robert Quinn
    Quinn/Wake could be special on passing play's

    The way some of our FA pickups have worked lately it would be a major plus to find a really good one
