So it has begun!! Just waking up today felt different; it felt like football was to be played today. Man that's a great feeling!
Real quick, though, I got one programming note. For the rest of the day today, all day tomorrow, and half of Monday, posts from me will slow. I have a wedding tomorrow afternoon/night, meaning that tonight is the rehearsal/dinner. And I won't be back from the wedding until Monday afternoon. So it'll be up to you guys to post any updates. I hope to check in from my phone and promote FanPosts and FanShots to the front page often. But there will be a lack of front-page posts from me for the next 48 hours or so.
So real quick, I just wanted to highlight some of the practice reports from the South Florida media.
PALM BEACH POST PRACTICE REPORT
-Ronnie Brown looking great
-Davone Bess "catches everything"
-Josh McCown missing on short throws
-Trey Darilek the starting guard opposite of Smiley
-Crowder and Ayodele starting ILB
SUN-SENTINEL PRACTICE REPORT
-Joey Porter sitting out of practice; Reggie Torbor taking his spot
-Charlie Anderson taking Jason Taylor's old starting spot for now
-Starting corners are Will Allen and Andre Goodman; Michael Lehan not participating
MIAMI HERALD PRACTICE REPORT
-Anthony Fasano working some with 1st team offense
-Former Packers' GM Ron Wolf shadowing Bill Parcells around practice field
There really hasn't been much said about the quarterbacks yet.
Also, you can head over to MiamiDolphins.com and watch a short video with some practice highlights. A few things that jumped out at me during the video:
-Ronnie Brown doesn't have any noticeable limp anymore. In fact, Ronnie looks downright quick
-John Beck looks bigger - all that lifting paid off
-A lot of focus on the RBs - perhaps a little foreshadowing?
Anyways, second practice begins at 5 pm today.
