Post What took so long?
It took 15 games, but the Dolphins finally unveiled their full potential on offense in Sunday’s 24-10 win over Buffalo.
There was Ryan Tannehill, a former college receiver, making big plays with his feet (a 31-yard run) as well as his arm (two touchdown passes).
There was Reggie Bush rushing for 65 yards and a touchdown, but also catching four passes for 42 yards and two more touchdowns.
And there was rookie Lamar Miller, rushing 10 times for a season-high 73 yards while Bush split out at wide receiver.
Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said Monday that the offense is “evolving” heading into the season finale Sunday at New England and into the offseason.
“I do believe we have a long way to go still, but we are making progress and getting guys able to do things that they are capable of doing on the football field,” he said.
The successes against the Bills — especially with slot receiver Davone Bess (back), running back Daniel Thomas (knee) and tight end Charles Clay (knee) sidelined by injuries — raise an obvious question: What took the Dolphins so long to use Tannehill, Bush and Miller the way they did Sunday?

That was still far away from our full potential. It was a nice win, but we still left plenty of plays out on the field in that one. The best example I can think of was when Tannehill and Hartline couldn't hook up on that 50 yard bomb. They were inches away from completing that pass. I think next year that play is a touchdown.
