I think I made my point in the last slide on what we should do about the quarterback situation. So lets move on to the rest of the offense...
Let me just say this as a pure Dolphins fan: Reggie Bush is awesome! I had my doubts at the beginning of the year like the rest of the world when Miami said they were going to be using him as an every-down back, but man, he has proved me and the rest of the NFL wrong.
In the past three games he has posted over 100 yards. For a running back, it seems that is getting to be a lower number every year, as the NFL gets to be more of a passing league. I think Reggie is playing really good football and is a tough guy that truly fights for those extra yards. With no injuries—knock on wood—I think Bush has a future with this team and will stick around next year.
I still think you need to think how you use him. Yes, he can run in between the tackles, but on 3rd-and-1 you do not try to plug him up to middle—poor play-calling. Anyway, it will be exciting to see more Reggie in 2012.
Daniel Thomas is a rookie. He's been injured for a lot of this year. Again, no offseason. I think it has been a tough transition for him.
We have seen flashes of a powerful runner though. I think the sky is the limit for the kid and we shall see what he does next year. I like what I'm seeing, but it just needs to get more consistent.
Get a new running back next year? I'm not so sure. I think Reggie stays and you see how Daniel pans out. We'll see what the organization decides.
I am sick and tired of hearing about how the Dolphins have no weapons outside of Brandon Marshall. Really? Really?!
You don't think Davone Bess and Brian Hartline are weapons? They just don't get the ball thrown to them as much, therefore they don't have the best numbers, but I think they are great weapons that just need to get more involved into the offense next season.
For fans that say Hartline contributes nothing in the offense, I have a hard time taking them seriously. Look at his catches. He makes incredible catches and looks like a gymnast as he constantly plants his toes and extends for balls on the sideline. He has always impressed me and I think is a valuable part of the offense. He also has speed—not the fastest guy, but enough to run great routes and catch the ball, dang it!
Brandon Marshall, on the other hand, drops balls. But he does catch some incredible ones. Anyone see him being strangled on Thanksgiving? Brandon needs to get more consistent in 2012, but I still see him being a big threat in our offense.
Ups and downs. I believe Mike Pouncey and Jake Long are great pieces, but the others, ehh...
I think Richie Incognito can be solid, but other than that I think we need some upgrades to give our quarterback more time. I'm not sure. Sometimes the line will play great and other times Matt Moore is on his rear end before turning around.
Work needs to be done.
There is talent on this offense. I believe if we can just straighten out the kinks, get some more plays in the playbook and score in the red zone, the Miami Dolphins will be a wrecking machine next season.
