Found October 25, 2012 on Phin Nation:
The Miami Dolphins returned to the practice field yesterday and continued to prepare for their big game against the Jets on Sunday. The Dolphins seem extremely motivated to beat the Jets this weekend and tensions will be high on Sunday, considering LaRoid Landry’s comments yesterday. Speaking of Landry, the guy who looks like the poster child for steroid abuse, he should worry more about covering pass catchers than clapping when an opponent lays on the field injured. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, opposing quarterbacks have a passer rating of 91.0 when throwing to the receiver Landry is covering. For comparison, quarterbacks have a 39.8 QB rating throwing at Rashad Jones and a 68 QB rating throwing at Chris Clemons. The Dolphins will be motivated by their hatred for the Jets, the fact that they let one slip away against the Jets a month ago, Landry’s comments, and the fact that this game could extend their winning streak to 3 games. By the way, Landry also guaranteed a win on Sunday! The Dolphins may not be saying it publicly, but inside that locker room, these guys know they have an opportunity to make a run at the playoffs….and it starts on Sunday. At Dolphins practice today, Richard Marshall missed practice again. Marshall has now been out for almost a month with a back injury. If he’s not practicing today, it’s highly unlikely he’ll play on Sunday. That means Nolan Carroll will be likely be starting opposite Sean Smith again this week. Carroll has been playing better as the season has gone one. Considering the Jets wildly erratic QBs and very thin receiving corps, Carroll should be able to get the job done again on Sunday. Also missing from practice was Randy Starks, which was a surprise to many. According to Joe Philbin, Starks was excused from practice for personal, non-football related reasons. It is unknown what the reasons were, but we hope everything is okay with Randy and his family. Starks is having a great year, both stuffing the run and pressuring the opposing quarterback. If Starks is unavailable for the game on Sunday, Tony McDaniel will need to step up in the defensive line rotation. (cont’d on page 2, click below) Pages: 1 2
