    News2 Barry Jackson Dolphins Buzz - 7/09/2013



    http://miamiherald.typepad.com/sport...lins-heat.html

    The Dolphins enter camp feeling much better about cornerback than they did at the close of last season. Nobody was more impressive this spring than newcomer Brent Grimes, who showed no ill effects from last September’s Achilles injury.

    Plus, Richard Marshall has moved past his back issues, Joe Philbin has been effusive about Nolan Carroll's offseason (we reserve judgment on Carroll until the games start) and rookies Jamar Taylor and Will Davis drew praise from coaches before Taylor’s sports hernia surgery in May. (Taylor will be ready for camp.) And Dimitri Patterson will be a factor in this competition.

    But Grimes is the real story here. The super-athletic Grimes, 29, has surpassed the Dolphins’ expectations so far, displaying a knack for knocking away passes and not allowing Mike Wallace to dominate when they were matched up in May and June practices. “Very good instincts,” Joe Philbin said of Grimes, who made the Pro Bowl in 2010.

    Grimes’ teammates rave about him. No predictions here, but he realistically has a chance to be Miami’s best, most consistent cornerback since Sam Madison or Patrick Surtain a decade ago. (Will Allen, Andre Goodman, Vontae Davis and Sean Smith all had their moments, at times, during the past decade.) If Grimes keeps this up once the games begin, re-signing him will become a top priority for 2014.

    Grimes, 5-10, can compensate for his lack of height with impressive jumping ability. “I don’t look at corner as a big position,” he said. “I’m short, but I’m not 5-6!”
    For all the accolades showered on Armon Binns, we hear general manager Jeff Ireland also was very pleased with Rishard Matthews’ offseason. Binns and Matthews enter camp as heavy favorites for the No. 4 and 5 receiver jobs.

    I'm very excited about grimes. He was one of my fav pickups. The fact you haven't heard much about Wallace recently. Tells me who was winning those battles.

    I actually think Grimes, Taylor and Marshall should form an effective cornerback trio

    1. I agree with the idea that the DB's are much improved. I thought the group last year was weak and almost as bad as the receivers. This year I feel much, much better.
    2. I agree with Barry Jackson of withholding praise of Nolan Carroll until he sees it on the field. I am very skeptical of Carroll's ability.
    3. While I supported a Brandon Albert trade, I was also very clear that I would support Martin at LT IF the staff backed the idea. I trust Joe and Sherm on this one. I think Martin held his own last year at LT and DOES seem to want the job.
    4. My biggest concern on this team is fitting all the new parts together. Whether it is the LB's playing together, Oline communication, QB and receivers hooking up etc. jelling as a team is my biggest concern.

    I personally think he's the odd man out if the rookies show promise. He was very disappointing last year when he got his chance to start.

    I love Barry Jackson's updates but I hate the mention of Andre Goodman having moments of elite play here - he had one season with a lot of interceptions but was routinely beat for big plays at least once a game - does not belong in any sentence that compares him to Madison or Surtain.

    Otherwise I'm good!

    I don't understand why everyone is so high on Carroll. He looked like ass last season. Mark my words he will be blowing coverage's again this year.
