Dockett enjoys his Florida vibe

Posted by Darren Urban on September 28, 2013 – 11:22 am

Darnell Dockett has a place in Miami and spends a lot of his offseason free time in Florida. Our guys Johnny Hayward and Richard Mendez got to see and chronicle Dockett in his natural Florida habitat this past summer, which has been crafted in this nice Zoom piece below. It seemed appropriate with the Cards spending the week in the Sunshine State. It also times out well since Dockett is coming off his best game in a long time, a three-sack effort against the Saints that earned an eye-popping +8.5 grade by (as context, any grade above 2.0 is doing pretty good.)

If Darnell plays like that often — and he was going against rookie guard Tim Lelito in New Orleans, so there’s that — the Cardinals will be in good shape. Perhaps he will be inspired in Tampa, with his Florida surroundings.

    Good to see the old Docket rock’n it in his natural habitat! Hope some of the predator vibe sticks to him and he sets a personal goal to up his game & setting the sack record. Beautiful country but wouldn’t want to live in a place where I had gators on the fairways and humidity so heavy to take the air away. Good luck against the Bucs! ROCK THAT #90 AGAINST NICKS!

    Darnell is a Pro Bowl level player…. sometimes. With D90, it’s always been about the “next game”, and the one after that, and the one after that….

    So why didn’t Dockett run wild in St. Louis? So now he’s a hero because he got three sacks in a loss? If he had three sacks in St. Louis we would have probably won. Is he going for sacks only in a loss? He’ll make more in one game than I will in a lifetime. Nope, never got a sack in my life but happy to criticize a millionaire when he’s out to lunch. And, wow, an +8.5 grade in a blowout (btw, we lost), what an achievement.

    #90 Dockett is a beast and Bowels Defensive System allows him to express his greatest fundamentals….
    Last Season Ray Horton’s New Style one on one gap Defense played out well as a team when everyone wasn’t tired however it prevented guys like Darnell Dockett and many others from showcasing there gifts…..

    Go Arizona Cardinals !!!
