Whether it’s division, AFC or Super Bowl, it’s championship or bust for this team. The players recognize the talent on the roster but they don’t want the paper champion title.
“Our defense as a whole is a very talented unit. Now what we do on Sundays is what matters,” Grimes said. “But just as far as talent wise, we’re very talented and our DBs can do some great things out there as you can see – Reshad (Jones), Lou (Louis Delmas), me, Jamar (Taylor), Brice McCain. You can go down – Walt (Aikens). It goes down the line, just you can keep going. It’s just a good group of guys. We can do some very good things and we can help the D-line (defensive line) out just like the D-line can help us a great deal. We help feed off of each other.”
The expectations are there. The talent is there. Now it’s time for the players to put it together.

Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes has enjoyed great success since joining the Miami Dolphins in 2013. He has had nine interceptions since joining the Dolphins and is excited about his new look defensive line.
To be sure, the Dolphins D-line has been formidable for some time now. But Grimes is well aware of the impact a player like Ndamukong Suh can have on a defense.
“Even last year, we had a great D-line. Of course, we added Ndamukong Suh who is an awesome player and he’s going to help us a great deal.” Grimes explained, “What it does is it makes quarterbacks uncomfortable. It makes them worry about getting hit. Quarterbacks don’t like getting hit and, with a D-line like that putting pressure on the quarterback without even having to blitz. It’s a great advantage for us. It can help us make some plays.”
I mentioned earlier how Suh impacted the secondary in Detroit. You can read that story here.
There has been a lot of enthusiasm surrounding the Dolphins. Owner Steven Ross has proclaimed, “8-8 isn’t good enough for me!”
