    Looked very good against Dallas leading us in rushing yards plus caught a couple nice swing passes.

    I hope he makes this team. I definitely prefer him to Daniel Thomas. I could get on board with Miller, Gray and Gillislee as our RB rotation.

    Hey I root for everyone in a Dolphin uniform, Jonas Gray and Daniel Thomas included. It's still early. If Gray didn't have the long 29 yard run everybody here would be saying he had 6 carries for 12 yards for a 2.0 average and didn't look good, so I take some fans reaction with a grain of salt. I think both will be on a NFL roster come openning day, the question is which one will be in Miami. I'm rooting for them both either way.

    Hmmmm! I question his vision... Several times he had the chance to bounce to the outside for big gains, and he did not!!!!

    Me too.

    I'm not proclaiming Gray as something special just it was nice to see the kid play well after sitting all of last year recovering from a nasty injury
    Thomas , Gray and Gillislee will duke it out for the probably two RB spots behind Miller.

    May the best men win ..

    But he did have that 37 yard run. D Thomas on the other hand did not and he probably never will.

    Great attitude and I liked how he identified the strengths and weaknesses of his performance against the Cowboys. Sometimes you see these guys get asked what they have to work on and they say "everything." That's no kind of answer. You don't get up in the morning and work on everything. You get up and work on one or two things at a time.

    Gray knew the specific positives and negatives and based on his answers seems to be taking to the coaching very well, which is a great sign. The only place where I'd disagree with him is that he seemed to think he wasn't patient enough on certain runs. I need to go back and look at just his stuff again but I don't recall that, personally. What I saw was a guy who when he erred, it was by dancing too much. There's one carry in the red zone that particularly stands out in my memory.

    Jonas Gray is exactly what he thinks he is (at least intellectually): a power back. He can break through tackles without even slowing down if don't get more than a 1/4 of him, but sometimes he runs as if he's playing two hand touch. That needs to get ironed out of him completely. But if he has another game like he had against the Cowboys and he'll be splitting time with Daniel Thomas in practice, imo, which would be a great thing.
    No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.

    Maybe more of a power runner. We'll get to see him play a lot as Miller got dinged a little at practiise today.

    When we picked up Gray and drafted Miller CK called them "Thunder and Lightning"
    Might be a good inside outside tandem. We'll shall see.
