:yay:

I believe we'll be happier with Wallace this year. We'd be singing a different tune about Wallace if Tannehill would have been able to hit him deep last year. I think Lazor will take advantage Wallace's skillset. I only hope that we are training Lazor's replacement this year. If successful I think he will get a head coaching offer next year.

Quote:
Mike Wallace admitted he "didn't feel like I knew what was going on" last season. Observers of departed OC Mike Sherman's scheme didn't know what was going on either. He never even attempted to establish a run game, turned Ryan Tannehill into a pinata (league-high 58 sacks) and was strikingly uncreative with Wallace. New OC Bill Lazor is moving Wallace all over the formation, something that played a major role in DeSean Jackson's career-best 2013 season. Wallace says he feels "a lot more comfortable" and hasn't missed a single chance to work out with Tannehill this offseason. He's going to improve drastically on last year's career-worst 12.7 YPC and five touchdowns.

I never thought Wallace was the problem.

He had his share of drops and he isn't exactly the type of player to go up and get the ball, he waits for it to drop right in the breadbasket.

Terrible catch radius.

Yeah there were times when Wallace would drive me nuts...just seemed like on some plays he didn't even try to go after the catch....but seeing how good DeSean played under Lazor, Wallace is probably taking off the ankle weights, lol.

Many of those plays resulted in interceptions too.

The bottom line is SPEED KILLS. Wallace is one of the fastest players in the entire NFL. Tannehill gets his timing down coupled with Lazor getting him into free space in the offense along with an improved offensive line, I am expecting a huge year from him.

He also gets so wide open, get the ball to him and who cares if he cannot make the tougher catches?

Everybody wants to see RT and Wallace connect on the bombs, including me. But... there are plenty of other ways to take advantage of Mike's speed. Move him around, create mismatches, hit him on quick slants. You know, all the stuff that Sherman never did last year. Work within the limitations of the players you have and design the offense that emphasizes their strengths. That was what made Shula great.

yeap...completely agree on this. RT could laser a 15 yd curl inbetween 3 defenders but missed the pitch and catch stuff downfield.

Every aspect on the offensive side of the ball will improve this season. That includes the line. We have amazing weapons. Cant wait for the season to start.

Tanny needs to grasp this O quickly................remember he's only known one offensive scheme since high school. A complex offense will require him to make the reads and audibles at the line. Physically, he has everything you want in a QB, the next several months will test what's above the shoulders.

So a guy that is tied for 5th in the NFL in drops is not part of the problem despite being targetted less than most of the other players in the top 10.

The thing is, Wallace is the same WR he was in P-burgh, the QB is what's different, Wallace has never had good hands, he's always been a body catcher and he's not going to challenge for the ball at the highest point, and he's always been that way, Ben is just a lot more accurate then Tanne, Tanne needs to get more accurate to take advantage of his deep speed.

He actually had comparable numbers last season to what he did his last season in Pittsburgh.
