Louis Delmas feels "great," which is good

Talent has never been a question with Louis Delmas. Playmaking ability has never been a question with Louis Delmas. Durability?

That's been a question for the Dolphins new starting safety.

Delmas played 16 games only once in his five-year career with Detroit. And even after that 2013 season, the Lions decided to cut Delmas.

So how's Delmas's health now.

"I’m great. I’m great," he said recently after a Dolphins OTA practice. "I haven’t missed a day of training, haven’t missed a day of practice. I’m feeling good right now, the best I’ve felt my last four years of football. So I’m very excited about this year."

Re-read that please. Delmas, ready to start his sixth NFL season, is feeling the best he's felt since his rookie year in the NFL.

That's good news for he Dolphins because they desperately would like Delmas to stay healthy in the coming season because healthy mean available and when Delmas is available, he generally makes plays.

Last year Delmas had three interceptions. Plays.

He had two sacks. Plays.

He's averaged nearly one fumble recovery per season. Plays.

He returned one of those fumbles and an interception for a touchdown as a rookie. Plays.

The Dolphins defense wants more playmakers and Delmas offers that possibility.

But he cannot do any of that if the durability issues haunts. Delmas is doing what he can to make sure it does not.

“Rest," Delmas said. "That’s something my first couple of years I didn’t take pride in is resting. After the season, I always started immediately with workouts. I think, as the years started going on, I started earning more miles on these legs, I needed to rest a little more. The coaching staff and the trainers are doing a great job of managing me. I’m comfortable right now."

It must be said one of the flaws Delmas has is also one of his strengths.

The man plays at ludicrous speed (Spaceballs reference) all the time. That's great for a Miami defense that is looking to attack more and set the tempo on the field.

But that approach has sometimes in the past led Delmas to give up big plays in the back end when he over-reacts.

And this:

Delmas gained a reputation in Detroit as a vicious hitter who gave no quarter. When he hits, he delivers the blow with everything he's got. But his full speed approach sometimes got him hurt. And his full speed approach at times got teammates hurt as well in situation where an offensive player duck beneath his hit and Delmas ends up hitting one of his own.

Perhaps Delmas can tame that aspect of his game some. Being home in South Florida might help in that regard. Enjoying his environment perhaps can be the settling influence Delmas might need. 

"It’s a fun environment," Delmas said. "I plan on taking advantage of every opportunity that I step foot on the field."

ProKing,

Find a whole to crawl into.

The word you wanted was hole, not whole. Come back after you get your GED.

I wonder if Promichael and Dr, Dawn have ever met.


Bwaaahaaaahaa Haahaaahaaahaa!

ProKing or Dumboak,

You have most likely peaked as a trained monkey....

However those who have read your posts know your a moron who wants to be liked and respected but it just will not happen.

Odin = Dashi = SAM I AM

No

Home sold his season tickets when they drafted Tannefool
instead of the new NFL MVP - Kuechly

This yr
Home is going to the 3 division games, the Packers game and maybe more

Prolly also will be in New England for the Dolphins game at Gillette stadium

Dumboak, come on back we will not make fun of you anymore. We actually feel sorry for you. You see it goes like this:

'A WISE PERSON CAN ACT A FOOL BUT A FOOL LIKE DUMBOAK

CAN NEVER EVER ACT A WISE PERSON'

Darkoak is so Dumb he does not know he is Dumboak

Kuechly's on NFL Network talking about how he can't cover Charles Clay.

Your <> You're

Home talks to himself under different names for hours. Then when someone posts he pounces on them with all these different names to make it seem like his opinion is the overall opinion of the world so he seems more intimidating.

Someone has mommy and power issues

Bahahahahahahahahahahaha tooooooooooooooo funny

Home tell us again how you fought off a grizzly bear, 2 Orangutans and a reindeer with a bottle of KY, one spatula and a tooth pick.

Fruit cake + gold fish = home

Something no one wants + something that dies in days and no one cares for = home/YG/Dashi/every other name you haven't recognized this blog post

That only happens in his/there sexual fantasies since it's more then 1 person

Hey Dumboak if you're going to teach English Grammar try gaining some knowledge. Knowing the proper usage of a contraction.

Moreover Dumboak it's appropriate to use a**whol* to explain where a worm like yourself was crawling into.
Yes that's correct Dumboak not just any hole.

If and when a moron like yourself corrects someone make sure you correctly know the English Grammar usage.

Not to mention no one on this blog would mourn the loss of our great Homey. Everyone would praise armondo for cleaning the blog!

Well Darkoak or Dumboak good luck with the next GED class you attend. Pay attention even though it's useless with someone like yourself.

Let's correct this with proper grammar.

Hey dumboak, (you forgot comma) if you're going to teach English grammar, (you forgot the comma) try gaining some knowledge (gaining some knowledge is poor sentence structure). The next sentence is a runon and should have been combined with the previous sentence

Moreover, dumboak, (you forgot both commas)....where a worm such as yourself (wrong pronoun)

Yes, that is correct dumboak, (forgot both commas, your grammar is bad)

If, and when, (forgot both commas. Did you pass 4th grade English? I forgot florida's education didn't teach their children anything useful) a moron like you (not yourself) corrects someone, (you forgot a comma. You're saying two different thoughts dipshyt). You correctly know the English grammar usage (poor sentence structure)

....so, in short, you're fuking dum

But please tell me how dum i is again jajajajajaja!

I bet You Your job is a direct representation of that pathetic education you have....which means your job is a piece of shyt just like yourself! Jajajajajaja! dum bo

I is smarter then u cuz I is older and is more life experience

Hahahahahahahahahahaha! Tell me more! Tell me how dum I is HAHAHAHA!

Then tell nasa how to build their next spaceship bahahahahaha!
Then tell Ross how to run a billion dollar business bahahahahaha!
Then tell Obama how to run a government bahahahahaha!

Oh yes, from your spot behind the mcdonalds counter taking my order as I shyt diareah all over your bathroom floor forcing your pathetic excuse for a job clean it up. As I eat my fries watching you wipe it all up hahahahahahahahahahaha!

Tard

wait wait wait. Tell me how to raise my kids cuz urs r so successful with jobs that pay slightly over minimum wage and grandkids that treat you with no respect.

Yes! This world would be a much better place with your knowledge hahahahahahahahahahaha!

What a fruit

Darkoak or Dumboak,

Tell us again which 7-11 you work at. I know you have a responsible job but your over the top dogmatic attitude is not indicative of a grown man with very much intelligence. Did you pay a lot of money for the GED you have instead of really attending the classes?

This is funny. Not me trashing you at all, you guys bore me. You got an axe to grind with someone else pal.

Dumboak a lovely lady is asking me to bed. Go to bed with the significant other in your life. Yes the one who is as ugly as your Mother. Sorry Dumboak; Dumb boring people like you have no fun!

LOL! Homey tries to insult people about their job and wife

clASSic!

2 Watt, we get it. Tannehill and everyone else on offense including the coaches sucked the last 2 games. Thanks for the update though.

Mark in Toronto

I would have also preferred more status quo on defense, except the middle linebacker and coordinator. Carroll, Clemons, and Patterson could have been retained much cheaper than Delmas and Finnegan for about the same production. Solia could have also been brought back. Solia, Odrick, and Starks would be an awesome line in a 3-4. Wake, Jordan, Vernon, and maybe Ellerbe rotating at outside lb. that would get the most talent on the field and the 3-4 from a couple years ago worked better than what we are doing now. I think the defensive strategy was just as bad as the offense but the talent on that side covered the bad coaching up some.

We got it the first 100 times he said it too, but he feels the need to keep saying it.

This is the year both the Fins and Hurricanes win 10/11 games each !! Believe that!! Too much talent on both teams and barring any major injuries both teams will win some games they are not favorite and they will squeak by on some games they are favorite instead of losing.. Why? Too much talent..

I am going to say my two choices for top free agent signing are going to be Delmas or Finnegan. Who does the rest of phins nation think will be the best performer from this years’ free-agent class for Miami?http://phinsnews.com/who-will-be-this-years-brent-grimes/

Wow someone really got under the skin of Wicked Witch (Dr. Down Promichelle).

LOVE IT Armando....

Giv me 53 more just like him....

Make that 51. WAKE is already on the roster.....

As usual,,we'll see.

Good Morning Dolphans and Brown's/Jets/NE fans.
Another day of reading the comments and opinions of the true Dolphans and ignoring comments of the "Others"

Albert will be the best FA signing. Just for the fact he's such a huge upgrade at a critical position.

Is Brock Jensen starting yet?


The homers reach their fever pitch in the offseason

when no losing is going on. LOL

I'm not sure why Armando attempts to interview NFL insiders, the Dolphin coaches or get information on what the Dolphins should be doing on offense or defense. He has his blog with all the GM's, self proclaimed NFL Czars etc....who know everything.

Well, most of the bloggers here knew more han Jeff Ireland....

Ya wonder why they call ya biich.
