Good morn! Read all three parts of “The Beautiful Mind of Chase Edmonds” right here
Could he warp the AFC? The Miami Dolphins sure hope so. We spent time with the team’s new starting running back, a man who’s incredibly open on how far he’s come.
Greetings! And a Happy Friday, everyone. Our little Serafino here at Go Long HQ has been celebrating his first birthday in style. The cookies ‘n cream cupcake was destroyed in record time. For a while, I was seeing a future fullback. More of a Mike Alstott touchdown machine inside the 5.
Now, I’m thinking Joey Chestnut is on notice.
OK. Let’s talk about those Miami Dolphins.
Too often, Miami has been a dazed and confused bunch these last two decades. The organization’s misery took a particularly bizarre turn last season under Brian Flores. Spending money typically has not solved problems, and here the team is throwing around millions of dollars again? On the surface, I get the skepticism when it comes to the 2022 Miami Dolphins. It’s all about the QB, after all. Tua Tagovailoa has quite a spotlight on him this season.
Yet there is real reason to believe the clouds are finally clearing up. We tried to get to the core of that belief this week with a three-part profile.
In Chase Edmonds — and everything the Harrisburg, Pa. native has experienced — there’s substance to this rebuild under new head coach Mike McDaniel. He’s a brilliant player now carrying the ball for a brilliant playcaller. As we learned at Go Long, the depths of Edmonds’ mind run much deeper, too. From a teenage pregnancy that left him in a state of shock to tearing it up at Fordham University and falling into a dark depression to, now, “manifesting” on a football field (not to mention creating a nightlife app that’ll change the game), Edmonds just may be the captain the Dolphins have always needed.
He was unbelievably candid about every step of his journey… and had some telling thoughts on Tagovailoa.
I figured we’d link all three parts of our three-part profile here, in case you missed it.
Thank you all for reading and sharing with a friend.
Next week, be on the lookout for a conversation with a certain Green Bay Packer.
