It be nice to see the Miami Dolphins run a jet sweep here and there.
We saw Mike McDaniel shy away from running the ball on 3rd and short on Saturday. I’m guessing he thought it would get stuffed and that the best option was to try and get the ball to Hill or Waddle.
Well, what if McDaniel did get the ball to Hill or Waddle on a jet sweep for those crucial few yards on 3rd and short? If it gets blown up, then get rid of the play. But, I’ll take my chances with the two fastest receivers in the league out running an edge defender for only a couple of yards.
Especially since the Dolphins are running a ton of zip-motion, handing one off to Hill or Waddle can potentially yield a huge gain. Do it enough times, and that may open up a big passing lanes if the edge defender widens out. You maybe be able to run those slants a bit easier, something that hasn’t come easy as of late.
I just want the ball in these guy’s hands as often as possible and so does McDaniel. Get creative with it. Deebo Samuel ran sweeps in San Francisco. There’s no reason that Hill or Waddle can turn the corner and pick up yards. We have receivers that are very willing to block and it’s a way you can get Mike Gesicki and have him make a block he can do by cracking back on an edge defender.
I say do it.
