Miami morning take: Dolphins are 3-0

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories on "Reaction Monday" from around the web:

  • Greg Stoda of the Palm Beach Post wonders if it's time to believe in the Dolphins (3-0) after beating the Atlanta Falcons.

Morning take: I had my doubts in the preseason, but the Dolphins are erasing them week by week. According to ESPN Stats and Information, 75 percent of teams make the playoffs after a 3-0 start. Miami has positioned itself nicely.

  • Greg Cote of the Miami Herald says Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill came of age with a fourth-quarter comeback.

Morning take: Tannehill was a masterful 9-of-12 passing on the final touchdown drive in the fourth quarter. Miami put the ball in Tannehill’s hands and he delivered. His growth is the biggest reason Miami is 3-0.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel says the Dolphins' defense pulled together through various injuries.

Morning take: Miami started without defensive tackle Paul Soliai and corner Dimitri Patterson, and lost linebacker Koa Misi and defensive end Cameron Wake during the game. Still, Miami’s next man up came in and made plays.

Morning take: Players are buying into Philbin’s program and the results are showing in the victory column. The coaching staff deserves a lot of credit for Miami’s fast start.
