2013 Miami Dolphins Stock Watch

Armando Salguero examines the 2nd half playcalling against the Patriots

I don't often agree with Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, but he summed up my issues with Mike Sherman in the second half very nicely. The run vs. pass playcalls are explained clearly, and his tendency to allow opposing defenses to dictate what we do even when we've demonstrated the ability to impose our will on them running the ball is rightly criticized. I had no problems with us abandoning the run against Cleveland because for 3 full quarters, the Browns defensive front had demonstrated without any doubt they could manhandle our blockers. Meanwhile, the Dolphins were down at halftime by 1 point, and Tannehill was on fire in the second half in Cleveland passing to Hartline, Gibson, and Clay. However, our situation against the Patriots was completely different. When the Dolphins have a 2 touchdown lead, an offensive line that looked good running the ball, and an opposing defensive front missing two of their best players in Jerod Mayo and big Vince Wilfork, abandoning the run as we did against the Patriots was inexcusable. On a fourth and 2 in the first half, with the defense loading up against the run, Daniel Thomas ran up the middle for a 15 yard gain. There was no doubt we could run the ball against them because they're the 31st ranked run defense in the NFL for a reason...However, we instead tried to pass our way to victory despite losing Brandon Gibson to a knee injury early in the game and Tannehill averaging just 4 yards per pass attempt in the first half, and we lost the game in part due to bad penalties, yes, but also due to turnovers committed by the offense on passing plays.
