If the Dolphins carry their early season success to a playoff bid, they may look back at one pivotal play in Week Two. OLB Cameron Wake rushed Vikings QB Brett Favre off the edge, stripped the ball, and fellow LB Koa Misi fell on it for a Dolphins touchdown. Through two games, Wake has seven tackles, two sacks and two passes defended and has quickly become the edge setter and pass rusher the Dolphins have been looking for. His weakness is against the run, but Wake has performed well pursuing backs for tackles in the open field. The way we hear it, no one around the organization is surprised Wake is having so much success. Wake recorded 5½ sacks in 14 games and just one start in 2009. He is an excellent pass rusher, especially going against an opposing team's right tackle, using his speed to get past them into the backfield, and one daily team observer thinks Wake can record double-digit sacks and be a Pro-Bowl type player.
