Ireland: RBs Thomas and Miller to have break out season
Is he even watching the games? Miller looks to be the real deal, but Thomas looks to be a back that will float around the league for a few years.
When addressing the Dolphins' backfield, GM Jeff Ireland said "I don’t think it’s just going to be Lamar (Miller)'s position."
"We’ve got a good running back in Daniel Thomas that’s certainly making some noise," insisted Ireland. Thomas has averaged 3.0 YPC in the preseason and 3.54 YPC in his career. Miller is averaging 6.75 YPC in August, and posted a 4.90 yards-per-carry clip as a rookie. Ireland believes Thomas and Miller "will each have a breakout season," and called them "a pretty good one-two punch."
