Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the Web:
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes the Dolphins must get off the treadmill of mediocrity.
Morning take: Another seven- or eight-win season is not going to cut it in Miami. The Dolphins must make the playoffs this season with no excuses.
Morning take: There were no major injuries and the team finished 3-1. It was a productive summer for Miami.
Morning take: Thigpen had a boom-or-bust game against the Rams. He bobbled an early punt, then had a nice, 32-yard return. He will have a nervous 48 hours.
Morning take: Thomas had 13 carries for 38 yards and a touchdown. I’m not sure that was enough.
