Dolphins/Texans LIVE BLOG

September 9, 2012

 

Hey Fellow Fans,

The big day is finally here!  Regular season begins!

I’ll be rushing to get home in time to see the start of the game, so I wanted to get this post up and available for those who want to live blog during the game.

 

My advice for today?  (I’m telling myself this too by the way).  Don’t overreact.  The Texans are really good and the Dolphins are rebuilding.    Don’t overreact to our Rookie QB, he doesn’t have a whole lot of help around him right now.  I think we all expect our fellow fans to be realistic, and being critical is part of that.  I know if Miami struggles out of the gates it won’t be all rainbows and sunshine in here, including myself.    But if we struggle we do need to remember how our roster looks on paper, we aren’t even supposed to be that good right now.

 

But who knows, any given Sunday right!?!?!?!  Maybe our beloved fish give us some pleasant surprises and make it a fun game!

Direct TV is giving one free weekend of Sunday  Ticket this weekend, so I will be seeing all the plays live, just an FYI.

Today is what we’ve been waiting for.   Get your drinks ready and let’s do this thing.

Friday Spotlight: Jared Odrick

June 15, 2012

2011 stats: 22 tackles, six sacks, one interception

 

Due to Jason Taylor retiring to become an ESPN analyst, and losing Kendall Langford to free agency, Odrick will be thrown into the starting lineup.  Will he be able to be successful as a starter?  I think he has the raw talent and versatility, and I’m very optimistic about his production on the field rising even more this year with the chance he will be given.   Odrick can play both defensive end and defensive tackle, so with the Dolphins changing to a 4-3 scheme which emphasizes more on the defensive line,  one can presume the stars are lining up for Odrick to make great strides this year.   His 6 sacks last year were a career high, and he looked pretty impressive when he was out there.   The biggest concern is if can he stay healthy enough to stay on the field. Time will tell.

Now about his special dance……………….

 

A Quick Note:  I will be leaving for the weekend to celebrate my 5 year anniversary, so I most likely won’t be able to check back in until sometime Sunday.   I’ve enjoyed the convo’s!
