The Miami Dolphins have numerous positions up for grabs when the 2012 Training Camp opens on Friday, July 27, and one area of the team to focus on is the offensive line. Most fans would agree that center and the left side of the line of scrimmage is one of the strengths of this team, but the same cannot be said about the right side where no starters will return to the roster from last season.
I stumbled upon a great website today: Bolding Sports Research. I’ve yet to completely explore it, but I did click around enough to find the site’s collection of old Super Bowl cartoon art. A “Hall of Fame” collection of editorial cartoons that appeared in newspapers in the run-up to the Big Game each year, there is some great old stuff there.
Dolphins rookie linebacker Koa Misi has been impressive after just three regular season games. In Buffalo, he took on blockers that allowed guys like Dansby and Wake to put pressure on the quarterback. In Minnesota, he fell on a Brett Favre fumble for his first-ever NFL touchdown.
Koa and the rest of the Dolphins defense will need to step up against the league’s 7th best offense with New England quarterback Tom Brady a win away from becoming the fastest quarterback to amass 100 victories in the Super Bowl era.
