With less than a month remaining until training camp, the “Hard Knocks” crew has already started filming, completing a few dry runs at last week’s mini-camp.

NFL Films’ Rob Gehring, who will direct “Hard Knocks,” joined The Finsiders to give a behind-the-scenes look at the show’s production and talk about some of the potential angles he might take. 

Thus far, in his limited time around the team, Gehring has been drawn to Joe Phibin, whom he described as being “magnetic.”

“When you’re around him, you’re kind of like, OK, this is a guy who can turn this thing around,” said Gehring, who previously directed “Hard Knocks” in 2007 and 2008.

On Wednesday, in the midst of the team’s three-day mini-camp, Reggie Bush spoke to the South Florida media about his role in the offense and how new technology has affected the team’s playbooks. Here’s what he had to say:

On the pace of the offense:

Because Chad Ochocinco didn’t get much playing time last season, there are questions as to what type of player the Dolphins are getting. Will he return to form? Was his brief run with the Patriots an indicator of what’s to come. Or, perhaps more likely, does the answer lie somewhere in between?

Former Dolphin Jason Taylor recently spoke with Jesse Agler about joining ESPN and whether he thinks participating in HBO’s Hard Knocks is a good idea. Here is what he had to say:

On retirement

“So far, so good. It is still a little weird to hear ‘ex-Miami Dolphin,’ but life is good. I can’t complain.”

On his new job with ESPN

“It is a great opportunity to work with the worldwide leader [in sports] and get a chance to analyze the game from the other side of the desk, so to speak.

Part of the intrigue surrounding the Dolphins’ signing of Chad Ochocinco–his large personality notwithstanding–is the redemption factor. In the eyes of many, the six-time Pro Bowl receiver still has a lot to prove.

Ochocinco joined the Patriots last offseason hoping to become the most recent Cincinnati Bengals offensive star to thrive in Foxboro. His former teammate in Cincinnati, Corey Dillon, had revived his career in New England, helping the Patriots win the Super Bowl in 2004.

There was no doubt when the Dolphins signed Chad Ochocinco that he would be assigned the No. 85, because, well, it’s his name.

He, however, won’t be the first perennial Pro Bowl receiver to wear the number for Miami. Mark Duper, who, along with Mark Clayton, formed the “Marks Brothers” tandem in the ’80s, wore No. 85 for the Dolphins for a decade (1982-92).

The debate over whether Ryan Tannehill should start immediately is beginning to heat up.

Some wonder why you would delay the inevitable by having him sit; others, though, feel that throwing a quarterback out on the field too early, especially one with limited college experience, could damage him long term.

Daniel Jeremiah, a former NFL scout and writer, sides with the latter, telling The Finsiders that the Dolphins should be patient with their rookie quarterback.
