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.
The tour through the AFC East continues for the Miami Dolphins (5-9) as they travel to Foxborough, MA to face the first place New England Patriots (11-3). These two teams last faced each other to open the season with the Patriots winning 38-24, and now New England is looking to extend their six game winning streak. In that week one game, these two teams combined for the most passing yards in NFL history with 906 yards.
The NFL has recently cracked down by issuing fines for a few players for what they term violent helmet-on-helmet hits. So, a number of players in the locker room were asked their opinions regarding the fines and how you can prevent the hits from happening.
Dolphins offensive tackle Jake Long has started every game since joining the Dolphins as the NFL’s top pick back in 2008. It’s a streak of 36 straight games that apparently will continue this Sunday at Green Bay.
Jake has been hampered with a nagging knee injury he originally sustained in the final preseason game at Dallas back on September 2nd.
