What Miami Dolphins OC Dowell Loggains said Thursday


Here are some things Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said on the Thursday before the season opener against the Titans:

• We want to have a good practice tomorrow. It’s a long season. 

• We drafted two tight ends and have high expectations for both of those guys. We expect them to play well.

• The injury to MarQueis Gray is going to expedite the young tight ends.

• We’re excited to be able to move Albert Wilson around on offense.

• We can be more versatile and diverse on offense than we were in Chicago, when we had a rookie quarterback.

• Ryan Tannehill and Kenyan Drake have really impressed me. The two tight ends have gotten up to speed quickly.

• Laremy Tunsil may be the guy who made the most improvement since the spring.

• The Dolphins’ strength right now on offensive line is pass pro. We need to be even better in the run game along the offensive line.

• Luke Falk has a unique personality and a swagger. He’s a smart kid, natural thrower. We are able to work with him after practice. He loves football. It’s important to him.

When the Dolphins start a new week of practice, coach Adam Gase generally has a good idea of the players who will end up inactive the following Sunday. But in no way is it etched in stone. In fact, players have been been “up” or “down” as coaches and players say, based on their practice performance on offense, defense...

A conversation with Dolphins DE Cameron Wake about learning, teaching and being unhappy

Whenever Cameron Wake flashes a smile, it always seems like it’s escaping from him. He’d prefer to maintain the image of the bad, brooding defensive end who exists only to demolish opposing quarterbacks. He rarely seems less happy, by the way, than when he does his weekly media availability. Or media obligation, as Wake puts it. When told...

Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke has trouble getting himself in the right frame of mind to give Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch his due.
