“In HBO’s Hard Knocks, we saw second-year Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas get in some trouble with head coach Joe Philbin for being late. We’re told that while Thomas has looked good on the field this preseason, there are still questions about his motivation. Philbin has already shown with trades of Brandon Marshall and Vontae Davis that players need to fully buy in to his system. Reggie Bush will be a free agent after this season, and if the Dolphins choose not to re-sign him, Thomas has an opportunity to be a No. 1 back if he puts it all together this season,” wrote PFW.
We know that Philbin doesn’t care who’s not fitting into his system, he’ll quickly get rid of them. There’s a reason Vontae Davis and Chad Johnson are gone.
