Brock's European vacation (updated)

After struggling for six games and being benched in the seventh, Brock Berlin had a good week in NFL Europe over the weekend.

Berlin came off the bench to play in the second and fourth quarters against Berlin and completed 12 of 15 passes for 183 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a nearly perfect 157.1 passer rating.

Berlin was named NFL Europe League Offensive Player of the Week.

But Berlin has not exactly lit up the Europe League despite his epiphany of a performance over the weekend.

In his first six games Berlin completed 60 of 122 passes (that's less than 50 percent). He threw for for 563 yards with three touchdowns and SIX INTERCEPTIONS.

I must admit I called for Berlin to get himself back to the states and to the Dolphins offseason training program and camps when he was going badly. Having rethought the issue, I guess that would make him look like a quitter so I was wrong there.

Here's hoping Berlin can salvage the remainder of his summer with more good performances.

Berlin is a long shot to make this team!! It's a shame, although flawed and not the flag bearer for UM, I always thought he took too bum of a rap from Hurricane fans

The guy's garbage. If he's there or here, he ain't gonna make the team.

Bray reminds me of Zach T in that he's on the small side for a LB but plays big. I'm pulling for him and Holland who sounds interesting to make the squad. Maybe Fifita makes the practice squad as we are stacked at DT.

NFL Europe is full of guys on the margins of the NFL. Its a professional league and a step up from all but the very best College teams. If you can't hack it there, no way do you have a chance to make an NFL team. Brock Berlin will be in camp no doubt, but after his NFL Europe nightmare, that will be the last we see of him.

Now this weekend's results have come through, fair enough - he finally had a decent game. 12 of 15 for 183 yards, 3TDs. Still think its too late for him though....
