-- Dolphins top performers today: 1. Daryn Colledge (locked down LG); 2. Rishard Matthews (moved chains a couple times); Branden Albert (solid).
-- "Dion Sims has made more plays in the passing game the first 5 or 6 games than I remember last year," Joe Philbin said.
-- Dallas Thomas moves from RG to RT during the first series of 11-on-11. Week 2 is always for experimentation. Dolphins are doing it.
-- Now Shelley Smith is getting worked in as the RG with the first unit.
-- Nate Garner begins 11-on-11 as the starting center. Dallas Thomas is the starting right guard. ...
- Chris McCain just took a snap with the 1st team defense at SLB.
-- Chris McCain just blasted Matt Hazel, who struggled to get up. Beast hit!
-- AJ Francis just blew up a running play by rag dolling Billy Turner on his way to the backfield.
-- Ball not hitting ground nearly as much today in throwing drill between QBs and WRs. Good to see.
-- Charles Clay runs his routes aggressively. There is a tentative trait to every other TE on the roster. That's a roster concern.
-- Charles Clay moves a lot better than the rest of Miami's TEs. He's always moved well. Hoping to see someone else run routes like him. ...
-- This is probably the crispest practice I've seen the Dolphins have had. Day 6 has been sharp. No INTs, few sacks, D eating the run. ...
-- Bad snap from Nate Garner. Tannehill takes a sack.
-- Tannehill find Matthews for another 15 yards on a great pass during 11-on-11s.
-- Tannehill rolls out left and runs it instead of throwing to an open Landry. Gains 10.
-- Nobody moves like Marcus Thigpen as a returner. Others might be able to do the job, but nobody has his giddy-up speed. ...
