Now that minicamp has ended and there will be weeks of nothing but to countdown to training camp, which...

Sometimes change is good, especially if it plays into your team's strengths.
That is the case with the Miami Dolphins' shift from a 3-4 base defense, which the team has been since 2005, to a 4-3 scheme.

In the end, the big decisions for the Dolphins start in January, whether they finish these final two games like they want or not. It's not just about where they are right now. This season always was about more than that.

MIAMI GARDENS — You start here: The Dolphins had a chance to visit the first-class section of the league, just for one Sunday's viewing, and they blew it. Players. Coaches. All of them.
