When I first started writing about the Miami Dolphins for a competing website, I wrote often about how the Dolphins need to Free Mike Gesicki. Years later, it looks like I have to do it again.
In his last five games, Gesicki has 15 catches. That’s sort of ridiculous. He’s far too good to be used like he’s the 4th option on any offense let alone a Dolphin’s offense that only one real wide receiver.
You could say that in those five games, Miami has won four of them and that there’s no need to do anything different with Gesicki because wins are all that matter. If you want to tell yourself that, again, be my guest. But I know, the team is going to need him in this stretch run. They’re going to need him when they need him most. And you know what, he’ll deliver. Gesicki still has yet to record a drop this year and he is primed to start enforcing his will as we saw him do at the end of last season.
I understand that this offense isn’t about getting the ball to one guy though Jaylen Waddle does get a lot of balls his way. Tua goes to the open man. It just be nice if the triumvirate of coordinators Miami employs would do this thing called scheme good players open once in a while for a player as talented as Mike Gesicki.
Maybe with DeVante Parker slated to return they can do some of that in the first half before Parker goes down with an injury. They should certainly give it a try.
