Dolphans Want Moore

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

It was nice to see an offense that has struggled and been plagued by injuries come together and raise their level of play. That’s what makes a top tier team. Chad Henne, typically handcuffed and hog-tied, was apparently allowed to play football yesterday and went 17/30 for 307 yards and two touchdowns (yes, and one pick). He hit seven receivers, including the undrafted rookie, Marlon Moore, who made a nice grab and kept stride to earn his first NFL touchdown.

Marlon Moore for Six

I have liked this guy since preseason and I hope he continues to develop. This is the stuff of which Dolphans want Moore.

Of course, Devon Bess is becoming a superstar. Henne is making more touch passes and the offensive line has pulled together to protect him. The defense was spectacular. The special teams had all of us swearing at the television in standard fashion but this was attenuated when Bess almost took one back for six. It seems every game, he gets closer.

    I agree with you on this post.. I definitely wouldnt mind seeing Moore in the game more often! He seems to be a real talent we need to develop. Ive hated Henning and the coaching staff all season for what seems like try to sabatoge Henne.

    I agree with everything except your analysis of Ronnie Brown’s running. Go back and look at each of the runs of both Ronnie and Ricky. You’ll find that everyone of Ronnie’s runs was between the tackles, and area that was particularly difficult during the game (until very late)to get any headway. Ronnie is most effective when he does hesitate and has an very good ability to make something out of nothing. There were two/three runs late in the 4th by Ronnie that made 5/6 yards and easy first downs that kept the ball in Miami’s hands and the clock ticking. Ricky is much quicker to the hole, and had several runs for good gains to the outside, but they were called plays. Ricky is no better than Ronnie, nor is Ronnie better than Ricky. Their styles complement each other and as the TV commentators noticed, they both looked fresh in the 4th quarter and the commitment to not give up on the run paid huge dividends at the end of the game when the Oakland defense was completely worn out.

    I think Ronnie Brown should be in “Dancing with the Stars”.

    you guys are wholly misinformed about Ronnie Brown; he had a heckuva game

    ran hard, found holes and basically punished the defense

    this guy is just getting started
