When the Dolphins hired Joe Philbin, I envisioned him installing a high-flying, pass-happy offense just like the one he ran in Green Bay. But Miami's free agency activity suggests that won't be the case—not yet, anyway.
Philbin needs time to bring in his own players before he can effectively install his offense. And the Packers are famous for building through the draft, so expect Philbin to do the same.
Plus, this young Dolphins' brass (Stephen Ross and Jeff Ireland) have already been spurned by shelling out big money through free agency (Brandon Marshall).
Miami might be more pass-happy this year than in years past, but its new quarterback won't be slinging the ball around 40 times per game. In two or three years, when Philbin has his own players in place, then that might be the case.
But for now, tame your expectations and be patient.
