Morning take: Improved Joe Philbin

8/6/2014

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Wednesday from around the Web:

  • Jim Corbett of USA Today writes Dolphins players are enjoying the new and improved Joe Philbin.

Morning take: Miami’s head coach learned a lot last season. There was the late-season collapse and the bullying scandal that defined the Dolphins’ season. Philbin has made it a point to be more accessible as a head coach in Year 3, which is the right move.

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes the Dolphins are turning to technology.

Morning take: Many teams around the NFL are embracing technology to help with preparation. It still comes down to talent, coaching and execution. But little breakthroughs in technology could make things easier.

  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post writes Dolphins linebacker Dannell Ellerbe looks to improve in his second season in Miami.

Morning take: Ellerbe played out of position last season at middle linebacker in a 4-3 defense. The Dolphins moved him outside this season in hopes that Ellerbe gets back to being the playmaker he was with the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel writes the Dolphins have signed kicker Danny Hrapmann.

Morning take: The Dolphins need another camp body with kicker Caleb Sturgis nursing a sore groin. Hrapmann might kick Friday for Miami in what could be an audition for other teams.
