Here it is Summer 2012 and camp is opening this coming Thursday.

So who is your favorite player heading into camp?

Do you have a long shot to make the team?

Is there a player that you think may be a surprise cut?

........and for a little CSI : Miami Dolphins here is the latest promo for Hard Knocks.......

We have questions all over the place.

If I had a top 3 these would be them.

I want to see how we use Reggie Bush. We have two young and talented RB's behind him so he will probably be receiving quite a bit but just how much?

Will we be using two TE sets on the large with our receiver problem? Egnew and Clay have better hands than any receiver short of Bess and Hartline so I think a short oriented passing game with those two would help us out in the long run with our QB problem this season.

Kevin Coyle's impact on our secondary will probably be the most fun to watch. We have two rather poor to competent safeties, an inconsistent CB with all the potential in the world, Vontae Davis, and a Marshall who out played even him on the Cardinals at both CB and FS. I have a feeling we will be in nickle sets a lot more often considering that Smith can cover TE's rather well and Misi just ain't that good to see the field more than Marshall, though the 4-3 LB spot is better for him.

I have a pretty good idea how we will use both Bush and Miller. I'm pretty sure you are right on about the TE's too. My questions would be this...

1. Who is going to stretch the field for us? Will it be Gates taking a big step? Will Wallace finally make the jump and play to his potential? Does Johnson have anything left?

2. Who is going to win this QB battle, and more importantly, will Tannehill at least show the potential to be an elite QB some day?

3. What is our defensive scheme going to be? I could see a lot of what the Giants do here. rotating in a lot of D-linemen who can penetrate, and playing mostly with an extra safety in the game. (Marshall?)

1- How will Miller and Thomas look?

2- What will our front four on the D look like.

3- Battle at WR, who will stand out.

4- QB spot, who will be the winner, David or Matt.

Our front 4 is pretty clear to me already the secondary seems like the bigger question mark.

Base Set: Odrick-Starks-Soliai-Wake
Passing Downs: Vernon-Odrick-Starks-Wake

We also have Westerman and McDaniel as decent subs and Trusnik will make the team for special teams play. Randall and Baker will probably be fighting for the remaining spot and I got a feeling they will stick with the rookie.

On offense it's Jake Long and defense it's Cameron Wake.

Rishard Matthews, but we would need to see a disappointing camp or an injury from Roberto Wallace.

Daniel Thomas (to keep Slaton), Anthony Fasano, and Edmond Gates.


Additionally, I think Charles Clay and Lamar Miller have have surprisingly productive seasons. Miller will take time to settle into the offense, but he will break out towards the end of the season. Clay will be a main cog in the offense from the beginning.

I want Slaton gone, his legs seem broken to me. Could have been a beast without his injury but then he would have been a Texan still sharing carries with Foster and Tate. Though I'm not impressed by Thomas, I can see him as the third string behind Miller starting week 1.

Aug 7th. Not sure about where to watch it in the UK but I am positive you will be able to download the episodes a few days later from any torrent site.

Can't cut Ryan out till you at least see him get seem plays in pre-season, sheesh...you just never know.

I think that's the entire reason Ryan has not signed yet, he wants to play.

Why would we? HBO is an American television network. Does the US have ITV or Channel 4?

Ohh I am not counting him out, I think one of those two will win the job. I would rather Rayn sit and learn the system, then rush him into it and make a mistake like we did with Henne.
