DAVIE – What did you want Mike Sherman to do? ... More rollouts? Yes. He could have done that with quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

More screen passes? Yeah, OK. That’s fine.

That’s two plays. Then what?

Wide receiver Brian Hartline (1,016 yards receiving, 4 TDs) was good. Tight end Charles Clay (759 yards, 6 TDs) was good. Wide receiver Mike Wallace (930 yards, 5 TDs) was decent. Tannehill (24 TDs, 17 INTs) was decent. Everyone else was average to below-average. ...

As for the claim Sherman abandoned the run too quickly recall early in the season when Sherman said it’s actually Philbin who wanted to pass more often. Sherman said he prefers to maintain a balance, keep banging away with the run. But then he smiled and said he could be convinced to do things the way Philbin, his boss, desired.

Philbin chose to abandon the run, not Sherman. ...

So glad to see our HC & OC were on the same page. Seems like passing the buck has become common ground. When this regime was brought in I remember the word integrity being used alot.
I guess that got tossed with changing the culture.

Gotta wonder what was going on here. Despite the strange season, Lamar still averaged 4.3 yards per touch (4 per carrie). So even if the Offensive Coordinator is to blame for not giving the ball to a play maker often enough, the responsibility still falls on the Head Coach to see and resolve this.

Imagine what he could've done with an O-line and without the Go-Go Starters Pistol.

Somebody is to blame for not giving Lamar more than 203 touches & the HC should feel accountable. Although, I did often wonder is Lamar had an attitude the HC didn't care for. Just a guess but at times it seemed like he was being punished to the detriment of the team

Im sure if anyone had any issues, they vented to Ted Wells. Im sure he has all sorts of info that goes well beyond Incognito and Martin. I wonder when he will be finished.

Beyond that, Miller isn’t a starting-caliber NFL running back. He’s a change-of-pace guy, a long-ball threat. His longest three runs of the season totaled 120 yards. That’s great.

The problem is on his other 174 carries, Miller averaged just 3.4 yards per carry. That’s why Philbin abandoned the running game. It usually put the offense in bad situations.

Did the moron that wrote this article even watch the games?

1)How about changing the tempo and running a no huddle offense when things were stagnant?
2)How about more read option plays?
3)How about calling 3rd down passing plays that threw the ball to the 1st down marker instead of behind it?
4) How about moving Wallace around more on the field.
5) How about throwing center screens to a RB and never trying that worn out WR screen to Wallace ever again?
6) How about running the ball 8-10 more times a game and not just on 1st down?
7) How about using a FB?
8) How about trying draw plays and shovel passes to slow down the pass rush?
9) How about throwing the ball to the TE's more down the seam?
10) How about using the quarterback sneak when you need 1/2 yard.
11) How about changing the snap count from go/go go to a traditional style and mixing it up?
12) How about going for the knockout and throwing deep when you get a turnover?

I wonder whats off here. espn and nfl say that Lamar has 177 carries for 709 yards, thats 4 yards per attempt. 177 is only 27th in league for carries. How do we even know he "isn't starting-caliber"?

Know what really puts the offense in bad positions? Letting other team's defenses know that aren't going to run the ball much but when we do, we'll tell ya its coming
