The Miami Dolphins, from the coaches to the players to the fans, are eager to get this season started and erase any memory of dismal seasons' past.
And they're a confident bunch when talking about this year. A new coach and some key additions could make the AFC east a very interesting division competition wise.
“The sky is the limit for this team,” Jake Long told the Finsiders during mini-camp. “We’ve got a lot of young guys; we’ve got hungry guys. We just got to put it together. We ended the year last year winning some games, kind of got on a roll, and we’ve just got keep that going this year. We definitely got the guys to do it.”
“You have to have the same five guys in there and really get it adhesive and just play off one another,” said Long, who’s entering his fifth season. “When you’re rotating guys, you don’t mesh as well as when you have those main five guys. We’re going to find those five guys, and we’re going to be a good group.”
“Just the short time we’ve been practicing under him, we’ve been learning a lot,” Long said. “He’s all about discipline, earning your respect and family.”
