Finally, we arrive to the most important position on the football field, the quarterback! There is little question that the play of the quarterback determines the success of the offense and his play usually decides the outcome of most wins and losses. Training Camp 2012 for the Miami Dolphins will hopefully decide whom the triggerman will be moving forward for Miami.
There are numerous ways to describe the 2011 season but overall the Miami Dolphins fell significantly short of everyone’s expectations. After struggling through the first half of the season (starting 0-7) the Dolphins finally notched their first victory of the year at Kansas City 31-3! The team continued to play with more consistency winning five of there next eight football games, and looked like a team that could compete with anyone in the NFL at the end of the season!
It’s been a little confusing for many Miami Dolphins fans when trying to describe what needs to happen to get that first victory of the season. Score more points, get defensive turnovers, start faster in the first quarter! I’ve heard it all this week including the success the Dolphins have had on the road, hoping it continues in Cleveland this Sunday afternoon.
It’s never easy the day after a loss at any level, especially in the National Football League. The Miami Dolphins fell to 0-2 after coming up on the short end of a 23-13 home loss to a very good Houston Texans team. Now the task at hand is very simple and the Dolphins should have tunnel vision looking forward to Sunday’s match up against the Cleveland Browns.
Former Dolphins LB Derrick Rodgers goes 1-on-1 with Langford to look ahead to the challenges that the Texans present for the defense on Sunday. The guys also discuss the mental state of the team as they move on from the Patriots game and prepare for Houston on a short week.

There are a lot of things you can be critical of anytime you lose a football game. The key for the Miami Dolphins is how they react next week at home against the Houston Texans, and if they can correct the mistakes made while building on some of the positives. Here are some of the things that I observed from last night against the New England Patriots.
