Tuesday was a busy day in Davie as players returned to the practice field in preparation for Sunday’s season opener against the Patriots. The team worked on first and second down situations during a practice that lasted nearly two hours inside of the indoor practice facility in Davie. Also, the team released the first regular season depth chart of the 2014 regular season. Coach Philbin conducted the first edition of his weekly show with The Finsiders and many of the players spoke with the media during the first open locker room period of the regular season. The team will back on the practice field on Wednesday afternoon in Davie and the first injury report of the week will be issued following practice.…

When MMQB.com’s Peter King arrived in Davie as part of his training camp tour about a month ago, there was one player specifically on the Dolphins roster that he couldn’t have better things to say about than All-Pro defensive end Cameron Wake.

“Cameron Wake to me is one of my three favorite pass rushers in the league,” said King. “The thing I love about him, and I told him this. I said the thing I really like you is that you have a true appreciation of your life, of he fact that you almost didn’t have this life, and eight years ago you were working out in a gym just praying that somebody would give you a chance. And he made something of himself.…

I have to admit I’m a stickler for clock management in NFL games. It drives me bonkers when precious seconds are wasted. I scratch my head when coaches incorrectly utilize their timeouts. That’s one of the reasons why I am impressed with Joe Philbin. He gets it. He understands. He is as good at managing the clock as any coach I have covered.…

The first thing you need to know is that the situation remains fluid. Why, there were two moves on Sunday. More could come today. Changes are inevitable. It’s always that way for the back end of the roster. The Dolphins may be down to the regular season limit, but Dennis Hickey’s work with this roster is a process that never really stops.

This past week for the Miami Dolphins was an end and a beginning, as the team closed out the 2014 preseason with a 14-13 win over the St. Louis Rams, and got the roster down to 53 players for the opening of the regular season. The fog surrounding several position battles cleared up quickly, and a former Pro Bowler came off the Physically Unable To Perform list, signaling a return sooner rather than the later. With the exhibition season done, the Dolphins now turn their attention to Week 1, and the defending AFC East Champion New England Patriots.

Check out the week that was for the Miami Dolphins from August 25th to August 31st:

According to multiple media reports, including that of the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero, Dolphins Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey will begin the season on the team’s 53 player roster. Some had speculated that Pouncey’s injury, which caused him the team to place him on the PUP list at the beginning of training camp, would lead the team to leave the fourth-year center on the reserve/PUP list to begin the year, which would result in Pouncey missing the first six games of the 2014 season.

Mike Pouncey is on the Dolphins 53 man roster. OFF PUP today.

— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) August 30, 2014

Pouncey made the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career following the 2013 season and has started 46 out of a possible 48 games in his three years with the team.…

With the preseason now in the books, all eyes rightfully turn to the Miami Dolphins’ Week 1 opponent in the New England Patriots. Going up against one of the NFL’s most successful franchises for the past 13 years and a hated rival will be a stern test for this promising Dolphins team, especially for the young and hungry defense.

One of the men whose role is instrumental in the success of the defense against New England’s brutally efficient offense is safety Jimmy Wilson, whose playmaking ability from the safety spot could have a huge impact on the game.

Wilson recently caught up with Greg Likens of The Finsiders, and had plenty to say about the Dolphins Week 1 adversaries. Wilson said that the key to stopping New England’s offense is to contain them.…

Let the countdown truly begin.

With the preseason coming to an official halt Thursday night at Sun Life Stadium, the Dolphins can now turn their undivided attention to the many challenges posed by the New England Patriots.

Granted, there are some important decisions to make over the next few days. Who stays? Who goes? Which areas still require an influx of talent?…
