Miami morning take: Tough times ahead?

November, 19, 2013
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the web:
  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes tough times continue for the Dolphins despite their win over the San Diego Chargers.
Morning take: Miami is back at .500 but still has an ongoing bullying investigation by the NFL that could take weeks. The Dolphins must stay focused with big games upcoming against the Carolina Panthers, New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers.
  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel writes about the unique week ahead for the Dolphins.
Morning take: Players and coaches will be interviewed regarding Jonathan Martin’s claims of bullying and harassment. The Dolphins put themselves in this situation and must handle it.
  • The Dolphins team site reports defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle wants to expand rookie Dion Jordan’s role.
Morning take: I think this is long overdue. Jordan has made plays with limited opportunities. There’s no reason Jordan can’t take some of Derrick Shelby’s snaps.
  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes linebacker Philip Wheeler had his best game of the season.
Morning take: Wheeler has had his share of mental errors and missed tackles this year. However, he was sound against the Chargers and registered six tackles and a pass defense.
