This might just be the cold medicine talking (for the last week I've been hampered by a severe cold that is about as stubborn as a Joe Philbin press conference), but this Dolphins offense has the ability to be something special, no?
Last year's Dolphins offense was the picture of mediocrity, finishing 27th in offense in terms of yards, while finishing 26th in points scored.
The reason for this boils down to Ryan Tannehill's growing pains, a porous offensive line and a West Coast offensive scheme that was state-of-the-art when I was watching Alf during its first run on television.
The scheme was predictable and archaic, and at times, not only was I able to guess what plays would be run before the snap, but most fans were also able to do the same.
If fans and a handsome hack writer could guess what plays the Dolphins were going to run, don't you think an NFL defensive coordinator could?
This year brings a change, thanks to new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor.
Lazor was Philadelphia's quarterbacks coach last season, when the Eagles gave us an offense that was state of the art now, as I splurged on an Amazon purchase of every season of Alf.
Now how responsible Lazor was for the offense is debated, as Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is looked at as the mastermind behind said offense, but it doesn't hurt that Lazor was around Kelly and could pick up a few tips.
Throw in a new-and-improved offensive line (which we will get to), and you'll see a much-improved, potentially top-10 Miami offense.
The offense will be helped out by another prediction; this one is not so bold.
