Adam Gase wants Dolphins rookies to earn their logos

AP

Like most teams (except the Browns and one side for the Steelers), the Dolphins have helmet logos. New Dolphins don’t, yet.

“Maybe that’s our way of saying ‘You’ve got to earn that logo,'” coach Adam Gase told reporters on Wednesday. “That was kind of something that, talking to [equipment manager Joe] Cimino about things that maybe have been done that way in the past, and we were just kicking around some ideas of doing something a little different than we did last year. We felt like that was one of the things that kind of came up that a few of us thought was a good idea and we’ll see how it kind of goes.”

The Cowboys have done that for years, requiring rookies to earn the star. It may seem trite and hokey, but it’s an objective indicator of progress, giving young players an indication that they’ve arrived. Or, as the case may be, haven’t arrived.

Either way, the dolphin logo has suddenly gotten more scarce in Miami. And if a player can’t earn the dolphin, his career may soon be sleeping with the fishes.

    Rookies thought he said Legos and were fighting like crazy before they learned the disappointing truth.

    So a rook that doesnt “earn his logo” (that sounds so manly, not!), gets unexpectedly thrust into the game wearing a nude helmet? Sorry Adam, that’s a uniform violation. 4 games suspension and $1M fine.

    Our helmets look better without the logo.

    Meaning they have to track, kill, and eat an endangered dolphin before final roster cuts.

    Helmet logos, cheerleaders, ring of honor, the shotgun, man in motion, the 4-3, ect, ect, ect. Everyone always follows the lead of the Dallas Cowboys.

    Ok, but who votes on when, where, if they get their logos? Is there a clear-cut goal? Or you just making them feel your authority by singling out all the rooks?

    Yeah, Adam. Stick with what you did last year.

    Good job Coach! Old Don Shula did that for years, making both rookie & some FA’s earn the Dolphin logo to go on their helmets. Motivation is always welcome by both players & coaches! Go PHINS

    The Dolphins really need to go back to the old logo worn last year against the Bills and 49ers, this new logo looks like the old USFL Breakers team logo, its terrible!
