It's been a fun few days and today's morning OTA practice should be the culmination.
On Friday, before I went on vacation, I left you with my 32-1 NFL precamp rankings. I ranked the Dolphins No. 10, just behind the Jets but ahead of the Pats and Bills. Many of you accused me of being too optimistic. Others said I had drunk the Kool-Aid. I wonder if you backed off your criticisms when you saw Sports Illustrated's Peter King rate the Dolphins No. 6 three days later.
On Sunday, my column comparing the Dolphins and Jets as virtual equals published in the Miami Herald. I got a couple of e-mails from Dolphins fans. I got a ton of e-mails and tweets from Jets fans. Some examples:
From John Link of Poughkeepsie, NY: "I am not one to trash other teams like this but the Fins just don't look good this year. Stop lying to yourself."
From Steven Lorenzo: "How many playoff games did cryami win?"
I spent part of my weekend responding to some of the more logical e-mails. (That means I answered like three e-mails.)
And in between my wife and I went to Universal Studios and Orlando and visited her folks!
But today is a work day. Today the Dolphins are doing their OTA thing. And I'll be at the 10 a.m. practice to report, analyse and opine on it for you.
I would not expect nose tackle Jason Ferguson (quad) to be 100 percent yet so I'll be watching for that. It'll be interesting to see what degree if any Ronnie Brown (lisfranc) is able to participate.
And yes, if Brandon Marshall has chosen a number, I'll tell you what it is.
Follow me on twitter to get the updates from the field. And come back here often because I'll be posting fresh new stuff throughout.
