Dolphins Coaching Staff to Blame

MIami can blame their coaching staff for the last two weeks. Reggie Bush is one of the best backs in the league catching the ball out of the backfield, yet he is on the sidelines during passing downs. If the coaching staff does not think he can take 25 touches a game, then fine, but play to his strengths. Get him the ball out in space where he does his best work. Daniel Thomas just runs into the middle of pack every time he gets the ball, but if you want to split carries between him and Bush then use them correctly. Put Thomas in on early downs,run him in between the tackles and short yardage. Put Bush in on passing downs, get him some screens, draws, and flares out in the flat where he can use his speed. The Dolphin coaching staff has done the exact opposite the last two weeks and their offense has scored 1 TD. They were down 19-7 in the 4th quarter and passing every down, yet Bush was on the sideline and Daniel Thomas was blanketed by the Bill LB's. When you need big plays, maybe you should put in the best playmaker and fastest guy on your offense in the game. Who uses their quick, pass catching back to run between the tackles and sit on the sideline for passing downs, while they send the slow 235 pound bulldozing back out in pass routes? Oh, the Dolphins. Morons.
