Miami morning take: Unleash Dion Jordan?
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the web:
Morning take: Jordan played a lot of special-teams snaps and earned a late sack in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. But the Dolphins need all their speed-rushers, including Jordan, to get to Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Jordan could be key.
- Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes that first-round pick Dion Jordan could get more reps in his second game.
Morning take: Thomas is up this year, but I agree with Salguero. Despite being a terrific linebacker, Thomas is not a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
- Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald cautions against expecting ex-Dolphin Zach Thomas to get into the Hall of Fame on his first year of eligibility.
Morning take: Several reporters, myself included, feel the Dolphins are primed for an upset. Miami's strengths match up well with Indianapolis, but it will come down to execution on the road.
Morning take: The Dolphins are ranked last in rushing and Indianapolis is 31st in run defense after Week 1. One of these units will get its game on track Sunday.
- Alain Poupart of Dolphins.com writes that Miami’s ground game could wake up against the Colts.
