It was a beautiful day at Dolphins camp Friday, which had nothing to do with the actual weather but rather because a cloud of stress and distress thankfully lifted and is no longer threatening our football team.
Not coincidently, that's what happens when the Dolphins concentrate on football. We find clarity.
Those running this organization are football men of the highest order and, disagree with them if you will, but they usually get it right when the topics are blocking and tackling and putting a competitive team on the field.
The other stuff?
We've had the most embarrassing offseason in recent history because issues that didn't have a lot to do with the outcome of games got in everyone's way.
It's a good feeling to see that first-round pick Jared Odrick looks the part of a starting 3-4 defensive end, especially when he's rushing the passer and ``arriving in a bad mood,'' as Sparano said.
It's a good feeling that third-round pick John Jerry, making the transition from college right tackle to NFL left guard, moved deftly, and seemed neither confused nor overmatched in his first practice.
It feels good that the Dolphins are talking about fifth-rounder Reshad Jones as a free safety candidate that just might contend with Chris Clemons for the starting job.
The biggest football problem the Dolphins seemed to have Friday was that second-round pick Koa Misi reported at 243 pounds and needs to gain weight.
But that's just a football issue.
And after the offseason we've had, football issues are welcome.
