Finesse is a flattering label to throw around when talking about artwork and cuisine. It has its value in communication and clothing.

But when it comes to a physical sport — one that's built on force and brutality like football — having that tag should be viewed as an insult.

Ironically, the problem with the Joe Philbin era of the Dolphins is there isn't a more fitting word to describe Miami's offense the past three seasons, no matter who the coordinator is. And Sunday's 27-24 last-second loss at Sun Life Stadium to the Green Bay Packers highlighted the issues Miami's finesse style presents. ...

In fairness to the Dolphins, there is an elegance to Miami's new offense. The spread scheme Bill Lazor installed takes whatever a defense gives them and works to make the most of it.

If the opposition puts six defenders in the box, the Dolphins will bring the tight end in and run the ball as long as it is not a third-down situation that dictates a pass play. If the opposition puts seven defenders in the box Miami will typically spread the field and throw the football. And that philosophy is evident even in the red zone.

This works in Miami's favor in most instances, except when an opponent is determined to dictate to the Dolphins how they want them to play. ...

Funny how when you hire a coach you think you will get the same results right away as he enjoyed with his former team. Philbin / Packers .... Lazor / Eagles ..... Harbaugh / Niners.
