Miami Dolphins quarterback David Garrard spoke with MiamiDolphins.com reported Jesse Agler yesterday, discussing some of the things the Dolphins are trying to do this year. One of the things coming out of Miami this offseason has been the coaching staff's desire to speed up the offense, and, according to Garrard, it's not just a rumor.

"We're going to be snap that ball at 33 seconds every time," Garrard said. "It's going to be non-stop, and defenses will be tired because they won't even get to put their hand on the ground. You'll see a lot of d-linemen just standing up, just trying to do the best that they can.

"You'd might have one period where you called organized chaos," Garrard continued about when he first arrived in Miami. "When I first got here, it seemed like all the way through practice, it was run here, run there, tempo, tempo. People were flying everywhere. Now that we kind of have an understanding of what they want, we're still not going as fast as what they want.

"When we're actually going to their tempo and their speed, it must just be faster than a two minute drill. It just seems like we're rolling."

If the Dolphins are able to implement this new offensive scheme, it's going to be a dramatic change for the team, and the fans. After years of ground-and-pound, eat up clock, and waste timeouts when you can get the play off in time, a fast break offense will take some time to get used to watching.

But, it should be exciting.
