Question: The Dolphins rank 29th in rushing, averaging just 69.6 yards per game. What do you see from their struggling running game?

NFL scout: It's odd. They can run the football. They just don't. I also know that if you're going to be a running team, you have to want to be a running team. [Lamar] Miller is averaging 4.2 [yards] a pop. When you watch the offensive line, they can have some issues pass-protecting, particularly at the tackle position. With that issue, you would think they'd run the ball a little more. But they don't. Maybe that's their philosophy.

One thing I always say about Joe Philbin and Mike Sherman, those guys know quarterbacks and quarterback play. So I think they're getting good quarterback play, for the most part. But if they ran the ball more, I think it would help them, as well. Go back and look at [Green Bay Packers quarterback] Aaron Rodgers. He just talked about that this week. Now that Green Bay decided to run the ball a little more, it's actually opened up their offense. With running the ball, it's about wanting to run.

Lol, no mention of how bad our run blocking is.

Stop trying to run outside and to the right. Pound the middle and go off of Incognito for 3 yards and a cloud of dust. That could set up nice play action opportunities for Wallace, Hartline and Clay.
