Miami Dolphins set their sights on Titans
The Miami Dolphins have set their sights on the Tennessee Titans. Preseason has come to an end, leaving players, coaches and fans, with hope of a season record worthy to qualify for post season.
Since December 31st week 17, when the Dolphins fell to Buffalo ending their season, with a 6/10 record, there has been many questions, that need answered.
Will Ryan Tannehill return for the 2018 season? How many players will be shipped out due to contracts, and performance? Who will we draft? What free agents might we pick up and will they help this team reach their goals?
Many of those questions have now been answered. They are not just names on a roster sheet, with a history of recorded stats, they are players picked for Adam Gases master plan, his blue print, for the culture of winning. For the first time in 4 years we have a real threat at the tight end position, Mike Gesicki, you can write in “weapon” next to his name. Previous years have shown a lack of talent at the tight end position on the field, that will change now.
Albert Wilson is the speedy receiver, also punt and kick off returner, write “weapon” next to his name. Danny Amendola the quick sure handed slot receiver, who has been a big addition, was one of Tom Brady’s favorite targets, write “weapon” next to Amendola’s name. Jakeem Grant, the Dolphins version of Mighty mouse and Flash Gordan rolled into one. Write in “weapon” next to his name too.
Running the ball has to be easy, because Kenyan Drake, Frank Gore and Kalen Ballage make it look like fun. With these three monsters in the backfield, I don’t see one game being less than 150 rushing yards. Write “weapon” beside all their names, this should be fun to watch, with whoever is in the back field.
The offensive line looks like it is ready, that would be great if they could stay healthy for more than just 6 games as a starting unit. They are the key, to how well all of this plays out game to game. Lowering the number of pre-snap penalties, will surely help keep drives alive and 3rd downs more manageable.
The last two years the average score throughout the season, has averaged 17 to 19 points a game. Based on the weapons mention above, I see this offense as an attack offense, a very versatile offense, that will be a 4th quarter dominator and wear defenses down, I see big chunk yardage plays through the air, I see the running man busting through the line, and blazing toward the end zone, I hear the roar of the crowd on their feet. All what Gase said he could do, comes to life this season. With that being said? Hello Titans!
