The Miami Dolphins have been essentially the same game script every week. I don’t know, maybe change it up and score points early in the game?
I feel like every Miami Dolphins game this year has played out the same for about 90% of each game. Miami wins the toss. They’re actually 6-0 in winning the toss so far. They stop them or they don’t. Then they get the ball and don’t score. They punt and then they volley a few points here and there with the other team until the 4th quarter.
Maybe just maybe, the Miami Dolphins should put a bit more of an importance in those alleged 15 scripted plays I’m told teams use to start games.
I mean, outside of telling McDaniel and the offense to execute better I don’t know what else to tell them. Take more shots downfield, get the tight end over the middle more involved, run more screens to the backs, and don’t under any circumstance run the ball on 2nd and 10? These are all things I can suggest to do but I would think the executing part is the most important.
This is a trend that needs to be bucked. It needs to be bucked because this team isn’t good enough to just flip the switch week in and week out. Yeah, I know the Ravens game is where this exactly happened but relying on that is a fool’s game.
Especially against these teams with shaky quarterback situations, scoring points early is paramount. This defense is designed to bring a death from above style of pressure from every angle known to mankind. This approach is best suited when the Miami Dolphins have a lead so that it forces teams to abandon the run meaning we know they have to pass. That’s the point of all of this, at least to me it is.
Go up early, release the hounds, and keep your foot on the gas and drop 40 on a team that is very wounded themselves. Seems like a pretty good plan to me.
