Ben Volin (of the Palm Beach Post) Breakdown of the Film Offense "After re-watching yesterday’s game, here are the tendencies I charted for the #Dolphins offense: They talked about running more out of their base personnel, and they sure did: 54 of 74 snaps with 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 RB, 1 FB. … They ran the outside stretch play with Bush over and over and over (including the 65 yard TD), and then ran playaction bootlegs off that very effectively. … The Dolphins did a better job of moving the pocket and getting Tannehill away from traffic. I counted 8 playaction passes and 7 designed rollouts, compared to just 3 and 3 last week. Tannehill rushed for a TD on one. … Tannehill was still in the shotgun a lot, 22 snaps total. But I counted a lot more 5-step drops this week (at least 13) and only five 3-step drops. The Dolphins went away from the quick slant game this week and chewed up the Raiders with comebacks and back shoulder throws to Hartline" Defense "After re-watching the game, here are the tendencies are charted for the #Dolphins defense: On 50 dropbacks, I counted 19 five-man rushes, two six-man rushes (both in the fourth quarter) and four plays of zone pressure (two with only a four-man rush). The Dolphins also rushed three on one play. … The Raiders scored their lone TD on a cornerback blitz (Richard Marshall) and Jimmy Wilson was called for roughing the passer on a blitz, but they also picked off Carson Palmer at the end of the game on a blitz. … Kevin Coyle mixed in a few blitzes early on, but the Dolphins mostly played what appeared to be a safe deep Quarters defense. The gameplan was clearly swarm Darren McFadden (22 rushing, 19 receiving yards) and prevent the big pass. … In the second half, especially when the game got out of hand, the Dolphins could pin their ears back and Coyle got a bit more aggressive with the blitzes, although the Dolphins didn’t sack Palmer once. … Cameron Wake got his hands on Palmer at least four times during the game, but couldn’t complete the sack any time. Dolphins need to do a better job of creating a consistent pass rush with just four rushers. "
