The Need for Speed




 

All of us our extremely disappointed about this season and rightly so. We all agreed that prior to this season that the improvement of the defense was essential. Mike Lombardi of NFL Network said that the Dolphins need to get faster on defense. Now that is exactly what the offense needs to do. What made the Dolphins so great in the 1970's was our speed with both Mercury Morris and Paul Warfield. All of our RB's are out of the same mold, namely power running backs. Our WR's and TE's are all good route runners but do not scare opposing defenses with our speed. SPEED KILLS!!!!!  All you have to do is look it how teams have to defense a guy like a Randy Moss. When you do not have players that can outrun defenders, then you put a lot of pressure on the QB to make perfect throws everytime. I believe that the reason Henne has digressed this year is because he does not have enough confidence in the RB's or WR's to get seperation. When he was at Michigan, he would not hesitate to throw to Braylon Edwards because he knew that Edwards would outrun the defender. Imagine this team with Chris Johnson, CJ Spiller, etc. or a fast WR like a Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson, etc. Former coach JIMMY JOHNSON would draft fast players and look at the results. SPEED KILLS!!!!!!!!!!!

We also have to draft a Center and a Guard. This is the second year in a row that our offensive line has been decimated with injuries. If we choose to pick another interior lineman via free agency, do not sign an injury prone player. I would love to see us sign Logan Mankins of NE as a free agent. A coaching staff can only do so much. You have to have quality players. We need to add nasty, strong, and reliable players to our offensive line. 

Once we do that then I think you will see Henne shine. The kid has a great arm and is smart. Right now he lacks confidence. Go PHINS!!!!!!!
