Post Camp Dolphins Day 18: Polite Reviving Fullback Position
Quote:
...

On paper, Polite’s value to the Miami Dolphins as a fullback is rather easy to chart thanks to his knack for being able to convert third-and-shorts and fourth-and-shorts into first downs. Offensive coordinator Dan Henning called his number 17 times in those situations last season – 16 on run plays and one pass play – and Polite converted all 17. Nine of those drives resulted in touchdowns.

But Head Coach Tony Sparano is the kind of coach that likes to look past the obvious and evaluate the other facets of the game his players can contribute to, the ones that the fans and the media don’t always see. For Polite, that has to do with his responsibilities as a blocker and he is working on becoming as good as the ones he has looked up to since high school and college – Lorenzo Neal and Tony Richardson

...

“You almost feel like he’s in your head,” Cobbs said. “You know he’s going to make the same cut that you are. You know he’s seeing exactly the same thing that you are in front of you, so it makes it easy. He makes it easy for you as a runner. He goes to the right spot and you can really trust that he’s going to be in the right spot at the right time.”
...

Polite’s relationship with Cobbs, Brown, Williams and Lex Hilliard is solid and they all have mastered the art of non-verbal communication at the snap. Polite has been able to figure out the nuances of each back so when they are behind him he knows how to tailor his game, which is why he counts a big block opening hole for any of those three as equally satisfying as his own rush or pass reception. The chess match he engages in with opposing linebackers, however, is really what gets his adrenaline flowing.

The most ironic names belong to the Dolphins' Incognito and Polite.

That would be hilarious if he knocked out Barf Simmons again

Anybody got a clip of that? Tx?

Here's some good stuff here where he is just laying the wood on the Lions linebackers.

Yeah the hit he put on Bart was what we call a slobber-knocker. You can see Scott was stunned after the hit. Polite is a beast.
