Most football fans would agree that the most important position on the team is quarterback, but the majority of coaches at any level would also state that the play up front is equally valuable. The offense would tell you it’s the guys in the trenches that make things happen, and conversely, it’s the front seven on the defense that determine wins and losses!

Preseason Week 3

The Dolphins look to run their preseason record to 3-0 tonight when they travel across the state to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

The Fins are coming off of a 20-10 win over Carolina, while the now 1-1 Bucs were dropped 31-14 by the Patriots. Last week for Miami, the offense put up 301 total yards in the first half and the defense held the Panthers without a point until the fourth quarter.

With a nice combination of moves, the Miami Dolphins have transformed their linebackers group over the off-season. In 2010, the unit helped the Dolphins finish sixth in the league in total defense thanks to a Pro Bowl outside linebacker in Cam Wake and a very good inside linebacker in Karlos Dansby. However, with a series of moves this off-season the Dolphins have added depth at the position to supplement talented returning LBs: Wake, Dansby and Koa Misi.

As a player Bryan Cox may have talked the talk but he definitely walked the walk. The first thing many remember about the former Dolphins linebacker is a particular gesture that he made to Bills fans in 1993. However, what many fail to remember is that after firing his team up for that big game, on the second play from scrimmage Cox threw aside two blockers and sacked Jim Kelly setting the tone for a dominant defensive performance and a 22-13 Dolphins win in Orchard Park, N.Y.

Who will emerge as the starter opposite Cam Wake at outside linebacker?

In the Dolphins’ 3-4 defense, there is arguably no position more glamorous than outside linebacker. Last season, Miami’s biggest defensive standout was Cameron Wake, who unleashed himself on the rest of the NFL by recording 14 sacks in just his second season in the league. On the other side, rookie Koa Misi collected 4.5 sacks and even scored a touchdown, thanks to the recovery of a Brett Favre (remember him?) fumble in the endzone Week 2.
