HBO Hard Knocks: Stories to Watch for from Miami Dolphins on Premiere Episode
On paper, the Miami Dolphins might not seem like a team that you want to watch battle through the preseason on an HBO show about the rigors of training camp.
However, there are always going to be story lines that you need to see play out right before your eyes, even if you don't realize it. If the New York Jets were on Hard Knocks again, certainly, everyone would be anxious to sit in front of their television sets.
With a team like the Dolphins, it is a bit of a hard sell. Fortunately, we have a few key stories that you can watch for tonight that will make your decision much easier.
A Conversation With The Quarterbacks
Which Miami Storyline Most Intrigues You
In a preview video released through NFL.com, we know that we are going to get to hear all three Dolphins quarterbacks—David Garrard, Matt Moore and Ryan Tannehill—talk about what that position means.
What makes this fascinating is that we will get three different perspectives. Moore is the pseudo incumbent after spending most of last year as the backup before playing well down the stretch.
Garrard is the wily veteran coming off an injury that forced him to sit out all last season trying to make his way back into the game.
Tannehill is the hot-shot rookie the franchise wants to take over, but he has to prove that he is ready to handle the speed and power of the NFL game.
Getting an inside look at their mindset is the biggest hook the show has going for it, at least in the first episode.
First-Year Head Coach Joe Philbin's Adjustment
Even though Joe Philbin has been in the NFL for nine years, this is his first time as a head coach.
This franchise is going to grow up around Philbin, and vice versa. The Dolphins are banking on him to not only get the team back into playoff contention, but make sure that Tannehill turns into the star they believe he can be.
We will obviously not see everything he does, but this is as good a place as any to figure out how well he is fitting into his role.
For whatever reason, Reggie Bush is a fascinating character. He is not the superstar everyone wanted him to be when he was the No. 2 pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, but he turned in his best season as a runner last year.
Let's see what Bush goes through in training camp and preseason. Is he going to be complacent because he has a little job security? Is he going to be motivated because he found a place that works for him?
Bush is going to be a marquee player for the Dolphins who commands a lot of attention, so I want to know how he handles himself and how he helps other running backs on the team.
