Tyreek Hill?

“He’s a bad man,” Mark Duper says.

Tyreek Hill?

“He’s going to break a lot of NFL records, if he continues what he’s doing,” Duper says.

Tyreek Hill?

“If a receiver can get the MVP …” he says.


The last Miami Dolphins receiver to get open deep as spectacularly as Hill does weekly is a fan now. He’s 64. He goes to games just like you. He’s excited about this season’s chances just like you. But heading into Monday’s game against the Tennessee Titans he marvels at this offense in a different manner than you.

“I look at what’s happening and give my hats off to the offensive coordinator and coach — and I guess they’re the same guy,” he said of Mike McDaniel. “In our offense back in the day, we ran precise routes. These guys run to the open area a lot of times, and somehow they’ve got (quarterback Tua Tagovailoa) on the same page in a way that shows how much planning and talent there is in what’s going on.

“I remember going into the open field knowing no one was going to catch me. Those were the good ol’ days. That’s what makes it so good to go to the games now. I see that happening every game.”

Remember when former Dolphins greats scorched the state of their franchise? It was target practice at times to the point when the late, great guard Bob Kuechenberg made his annual synopsis he was told to get a “hug and a hobby,” from Hall of Famer Jason Taylor.
