Coming from Patriot territory, the way I stay in touch with the Dolphins is through the social media empire Twitter. Since I can't be at the stadium watching scrimmages and practices, I rely on Dolphins beat writers, reporters, and players. Since I can't talk to all of you directly, I decided to post about what I see on Twitter with you all. And since not everyone has Twitter or can attend these practices, I hope this gives light to what goes on a daily grind in Dolphin land. A quick and easy read, I give you...
Announced crowd today: 8,721.
What I say: start showing up—you might get to be on Hard Knocks picking your nose in the background! Better than the estimated 3,000 figure that some were tweeting earlier on in the day.
Ryan Tannehill's unofficial stats: 10 of 13 for 114 yards and 1 TD.
What I say: Even though its against 2nd defense, those are solid stats… completed 7 in a row at one point. Encouraging nonetheless. Also good to hear Anthony Fasano grab a pair of TDs in today's scrimmage-- TE arguably the most evolving position in the game; can be AND should be HUGE in the Red Zone in this offense.
What I say: Better this than hearing fans erupt with “We Want Orton!” a year ago.
I'm very impressed with Ryan Tannehill's drive right now. He looks amazing from an accuracy standpoint when he's on the move.
What I say: Still not sure how to work with Omar’s tweets, but an observation I think we should all like seeing. Of course, consistency over time will only validate this. One good scrimmage for the rook is great, but continuing to "look amazing" with these throws needs to be a consistent thing as we learn more about Tannehill.
Brandon Fields so good. Punt bounces dead inside 5. About a 61-yd punt.
What I say: Yay! Let’s punt!
OMAR KELLY TWEET OF THE DAY
