Morning take: Miami regrets Marshall trade?

August, 27, 2012
Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC East:
  • Miami Dolphins rookie head coach Joe Philbin says he doesn't regret trading Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears this offseason.
Morning take: Philbin did not want to put up with the headache Marshall can bring while trying to establish a new program. But it's clear Philbin could have used Marshall’s talent. Miami’s current group of receivers has little playmaking ability.
Morning take: New England hasn't looked in synch offensively, but this group hasn't received much playing time, either. The Patriots will go into the regular season a little bit rusty due to lack of reps in the preseason.
  • The New York Jets suffered several injuries in Sunday night's preseason game, including to linebacker David Harris (ankle) and tight ends Dustin Keller (hamstring) and Josh Baker (knee).
Morning take: The tight-end injuries are most concerning. Keller is very important and needs to be ready for the Bills in Week 1. Baker may be out for a significant time.
  • Is quarterback Tarvaris Jackson an upgrade over Vince Young for the Buffalo Bills?
Morning take: I’m not big on either as a quarterback. But the Bills must see something in Jackson that they might not see in Young. Their quarterback cuts will be interesting.
