  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes about Dolphins coach Joe Philbin's optimism going into his third season.

Morning take: This is a huge year Philbin, who is 15-17 in his first two seasons. Philbin believes this is the best Dolphins team he has had on paper, but it's up to the coaching staff to put it all together.

  • Dave Hyde of the Sun Sentinel wonders if this Dolphins team is any different from recent seasons.

Morning take: It’s a good question, considering Miami hasn’t made the playoffs the past five seasons. This Dolphins team certainly has a nice collection of talent. But there are enough holes to be concerned.

Morning take: It’s officially time for training camp. Let the fun and competition begin.
