I really like Laird, but I really don't understand giving him 10 more snaps than Breida who can take the ball to the end zone if given more chances. As a running back, I agree that he is a big disappointment, but why don't we use him on screens or as a receiver more? This is one thing that Gailey needs to adjust his coaching to.

RB Matt Breida (7 snaps, 11 percent) — Brian Flores says Breida is doing everything right. So then why is he stapled to the bench? One of the fastest men in the NFL. And he can't help this wobbly Dolphins offense? What are we missing? All I can think of is maybe his hamstring still felt a little bit sore. Patrick Laird played 17 snaps. Laird is an excellent receiver. Is there some reason Breida can't run some more receiving routes?https://www.palmbeachpost.com/story/spo ... 401196002/
