Maybe because I'm from the Midwest...


  I am overly excited about this upcoming 2010 Miami Dolphins season.  I find myself running to the computer or cell phone every hour to check the latest Phins news.

     Now, for  my own addition of the "X-factor" of our 2010 Dolphins team is Brian Hartline.  I have a true love for the midwest.  Being born and raised in central Illinois, I am a huge fan of the Big 10.  I loved watching Brian Hartline play on Saturdays @ Ohio State and always pictured him as the next Ed McCafrey.  I saw some signs last year of Hartlines' plays that were outstanding, and he soon became a favorite.  I think Brian Hartline is going to have a big year, and be a great compliment to Brandon Marshall.  In fact, I love our whole receiving unit, and it seems as if most of you phinsiders do as I have seen some great peices written about our WR's that are getting me really excited.  I see defenses stressing trying to stop R&R and Henne/Marshall, then Henne hits a huge 3rd down to Bess, or a 20 yrd pass to Hartline.  (Not evening mentioning the best FB in short yardage.)

     I really think defenses are going to have a hard time stopping our offense this year.  I think this year's team is going to change many people's perception of what kind of team we are.  When I think of our offense now I think of a very talented and threatening offense, with a powerful line and powerful runners, and powerful, quick recievers that can all make great plays.  With these type of weapons, Chad Henne will shine.

 

     Our defense, instead of the power, up the gut, hit you in the face (Zach Thomas, Jason Taylor...etc) is going to be a fast, athletic defense.  Stats have shown that this has become a pass-friendly league and the Dolphins have built up a great defense to beat that.  Starks to DT makes that position much quicker.  That move then allows the line to be faster, and I believe Channing Crowder will be blitzing a lot to help the line stuff the run.  Our secondary is very young, yet very fast, and hungry to make plays.  Veteran Yeremiah Bell will be back there to help guide them along all season and also make huge plays.  Then there's the future captian, Karlos Dansby.  He works great with this defense with a long body and great coverage with speed that will plug up the middle.  I view him as a ball-hawk and will be the rock of this defense.  Mike Nolan seems to be working hard on tweaking this defense and we can finally kiss the conventional 3-4 gooooodbye.

 

  I had to get some of this excitement of my chest.  Hopefully my man Ricky can talk Pat White out of his rut today, and tell him to fight threw this, just work hard keep adjusting and do whatever you have to do.  Tomorrow, at 6AM EST, Mike and Mike in the morning on ESPN are going to be talking about the Dolphins.  They have been covering two teams a day.  I'm not exactly sure what time they will be covering the fins, I tried to email ESPN and find out but I havn't heard back yet.  This is my favorite T.V. and radio show and I'm excited to hear what they have to say about our phins.
