Morning take: Dolphins assistant on saga

November, 14, 2013
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the web:
  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel quotes a Dolphins assistant who said that at the team’s training facility the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin story is “overblown.”
Morning take: Maybe this provides insight into how some on Miami’s coaching staff feel. The NFL investigation should uncover all the details to let the public decide.
  • Darren Heitner of Forbes magazine wonders if Incognito should appeal his suspension.
Morning take: Forbes has been all over this story lately. Miami must make a decision on Incognito after three more games. But an appeal would make things interesting.
  • Greg Stoda of the Palm Beach Post writes that general manager Jeff Ireland’s job is on the line.
Morning take: Barring an unexpected playoff run, Ireland could be entering his final days in Miami. He spent more than $200 million this offseason and may not eclipse last season's win total of seven.
  • Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald writes that receiver Mike Wallace and quarterback Ryan Tannehill need to get on the same page.
Morning take: The Dolphins haven’t done a good job of using Wallace’s world-class speed. It’s up to offensive coordinator Mike Sherman to work with both players.
