Dolphins looking to rebound from subpar 6-10 2011 record

The Miami Dolphins are going through changes this season.  The offense is moving to a West Coast Offense which is more suited for TE’s Charles Clay and Will Yeatman (who carries the largest hands in the NFL at 11 ¾ inches).

New Head Coach Joe Philbin will be looking to hold at least 11 OTA sessions and claims that everyone on the team will get a fair shake.

“Your job as a coach is to get the maximum out of the players you have,” Philbin said. “We have a broader perspective at this point in time. We’re excited about getting started. We think we have a lot of character … The key is how quickly we can forge this group into playing like a team.  Everyone is going to start from square one,”

The team still has some needs to fill such as another pressure pass rusher either another DE or an OLB who can get to the QB.  The team is also in flux at the QB position.  With David Garrard and Matt Moore signed the team will most likely try and find a QB suited for the West Coast Offense and develop him as neither Garrard nor Moore can be considered the “future of the franchise.”  Finally, with the trade of Brandon Marshall, the team is left with no top receiver and will most likely go through the draft to get a couple of speedsters.
