    Jeff Darlington : Dolphins embrace change in busy off season

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...ter_Darlington

    DAVIE, Fla. -- Inside the lobby of the Miami Dolphins' training facility, all around those two static Super Bowl trophies perched at the center of the room, an identity crisis of sorts has finally been remedied.
    No longer will you find former left tackle Jake Long's jersey. Or memorabilia recognizing the leaders of 2012, like Reggie Bush and Davone Bess and Sean Smith. Even the placards identifying the men's room and the ladies' room have been updated, with new logos bearing a porpoise in an altered position.
    Yes, slowly but surely, the organization is managing to catch up with itself. Miami has successfully renewed the aesthetics of the building in the midst of a wild offseason featuring a flurry of decisions that have rebranded this team, on and off the field. And it's all starting to look pretty good.
    "I have to check what I'm wearing half the time," Dolphinshead coach Joe Philbin said with a laugh during a conversation Friday with NFL.com.

    Good stuff from our boy at NFL network

    You bet we're excited Jeff. Well probably except for Dlockz! I doubt anything could make that poster happy....

    NFL: Congratulations your Miami Dolphins have just won the SuperBowl!!

    Dlockz:
    So? Ireland still sucks and they should have won it 3 years ago. I need him, the rest of the FO and Stephen Ross to win the next 3 before I consider calling them mediocre!

    you would think


    This makes me smile


    You know what Philbin cares about instead?
    New energy. New leadership in the locker room. New direction. New, bold moves that suggest even general manager Jeff Ireland is enduring a maturation process that has him making decisions in a way that could lead to something more than the boring, wasted seasons of old.
    Philbin's concerned with getting his team to a Super Bowl -- and you can bet he doesn't care where it's held or what his team is wearing when it gets there. Believe it or not, he and Ireland have put in the work this offseason, strictly from a football standpoint, to get the Dolphins as close as they've been in years.
    Within the last two months, no team in the NFL has made more dramatic decisions. No team has proven, whether for the sake of saving jobs or selling tickets or winning games, to be more invested in a drastic turnaround for the season ahead.

    The positive outlook, professionalism, vision and no-nonsense approach pervading this franchise, IMO is largely attributable to our own reincarnated version of "Coach Landry"
