    Player ESPN/Walker: "Miami TE Michael Egnew showing strides"

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post...howing-strides

    It's early, but Egnew looks like an improved player in Year 2 during organized team activities. Egnew had perhaps his best practice of the offseason on Monday, catching three touchdown passes in seven-on-seven and 11-on-11 drills.

    Egnew credits some of his early improvement to training in mixed martial arts this offseason. Now, Egnew is working to earn the trust of Miami's coaching staff after a redshirt 2012 season.

    On Monday I asked Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin about Egnew's development and making more plays in practice this year.

    I see the same things you do, and it makes me feel more confident about his ability, Philbin responded. Hes starting to understand his role in the offense better, and maybe we know a little more about him, too, so we can put him in a position to make those type of plays. Its been encouraging.

    There are some other recent thread specifically bringing up Egnew's good performance in OTAs. I think this is probably best discussed within them but it's just my opinion.

    I don't think those however many threads bashing Egnew for no good reason are worthy either.

    Threads like this just give fuel to people who like to pretend that there's a faction of fans who believe Egnew is the super awesomest most greatest player ever, so that their own continuous stream of unmitigated Egnew bashing looks like just a reasonable counter response rather than what it really is, which is an unjustified reaction to 60 seconds of Hard Knocks footage combined with a rookie not playing much in his rookie year (which we've seen in the NFL, countless times).
