Our Turf Media is excited to announce our new collaboration with the College Gridiron Showcase. This collaboration allows us to expand not only Our Turf Football content but allows us to provide you, our readers, a glimpse inside the incredible work the College Gridiron Showcase is doing. The Showcase works with NFL draft prospects who have completed their eligibility in NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, and the NAIA, to prepare them to compete for an NFL job, and puts them in front of NFL scouts for evaluation. We feel fortunate to have the opportunity of working with such an elite group of men and women who are giving these young players the opportunity of a lifetime.
Welcome back to football, Team. We made it! And not a moment too soon!
Let’s preview how the NFC North could look this season.
I’m going to preface this by saying, pretty much when Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he was coming back, the division got a little less interesting. Because at the end of the day, the Packers are still the Packers and are the team to beat in the north. But that’s the way it is so…to the preview!
The Denver Broncos ended up dead last in their division last season with a 5 – 11 record, ending the season with three consecutive losses.
We know all about the quarterback issues that have plagued them since Hall of Fame QB Peyton Manning left the team. And then there were the injuries that devastated the team last season, causing them to lose their future Hall of Fame linebacker and team leader, Von Miller, for the season.
All of these things equaled a horrible, no-good season in 2020 for the Broncos.
Are the issues from their last season making us overlook them this year? Are we forgetting the dynamic, young players they have added to the team? Now, I’m not saying they are Super Bowl contenders or anything… (here comes the but)
With the Pro Football Hall of Fame game and induction ceremonies over, we are just days away from week one of the 2021 NFL preseason. For what has seemed like an eternity, we have been waiting to get our eyes on new players, new coaches, and new schemes. Soon, that day will arrive.
Now for some teams, not much will change. Like both Super Bowl teams from last season, a few teams kept the majority of their players and all of their coaching staff. But the majority of teams have had some pretty big changes. Changes that could turn the fate of an entire franchise.
Now, we all know that preseason games aren’t real games. They are glorified practices that help the team decide who makes the final roster. But they also offer opportunities. Opportunities for unknown players to become know. For players far down the depth chart to move up. Opportunities for fans to find new fan favorites.
After spending the last 48 hours down in Miami watching and observing the Miami Dolphins practice sessions, I did indeed need to keep reminding myself this is only practice. I tried not to make too much fuss over dropped passes or missed blocks. Because trust me, there was plenty of that going around.
I take training camp with a grain of salt. I mean one day you’ll get focused on a player that has had a great week. You can write all about it, only for that player to struggle the following week. I have seen this happen every single year.
The Miami Dolphins Junior Dolphins program will announce its impact on youth football supporting every high school football program and its athletes in South Florida in the last five years.
In an effort to transform lives and grow participation of boys and girls football teams, the Dolphins have supported all 142 varsity high school football programs in Broward, Miami Dade, and Palm Beach County schools through team visits, equipment donations, character building, or game day experiences.
The Miami Dolphins opened training camp yesterday by welcoming back the fans!
For the first time in over a year, fans were welcomed back by Dolphins Head Coach Brian Flores. Coach Flores during his pre-practice press conference said he was excited that fans were back in the stands. [He] always enjoys the fans’ support and was excited that the fans could watch practice.
It’s also worth mentioning that the fans were able to watch their beloved Fins from the team’s brand new training facility. Baptist Health Training facility is 217,200 square feet of state-of-the-art technology. It features two full-size natural grass fields and a full indoor practice facility as well.
