The wide receiver position is an interesting one moving forward for the Miami Dolphins in 2012 because the offensive philosophy will change for the third time in a three-year span! Players and fans alike are assuming more timing and rhythm throws in anticipation of the west coast offense that head coach Joe Philbin has run in the past.
DOLPHINS WIDE RECEIVER SITUATION:
One trait that shouldn’t change is that Brandon Marshall should still be productive in any offensive scheme!
To say that the last four weeks have been frustrating is a gross understatement! The Miami Dolphins have been in position to win football games multiple times, but haven’t made the game-changing play to overcome the dropped pass, the blown coverage or the missed assignment! Sitting at 0-4 in the AFC East looking up at the New England Patriots (3-1), Buffalo Bills (3-1) and New York Jets (2-2) is not where this team envisioned itself going into the bye week.
The Dolphins continue their quest for their first win of 2011 in San Diego on Sunday when they visit the Chargers in their final game before the bye week. Miami has lost three straight to start the season, while the Bolts are 2-1 after they escaped with a 20-17 win over the Chiefs last Sunday.
Injuries look to play a major role in this one for both teams, so be sure to check out the official injury report, as released by the teams on Friday.
The Dolphins are done with South Florida, heading out to the west coast early for Sunday’s game at San Diego. On today’s FinsidersTV, we hear from Yeremiah Bell, who spoke with Sam Madison about a chance for this defense to get right against Phillip Rivers and the Bolts. Also, Tony Sparano, addresses Lex Hilliard’s role on this team–which is under the microscope right now thanks to the injury uncertainty with Daniel Thomas:
Through three weeks it hasn’t been too much fun for the coaches, players and yes, us, the fans of the Miami Dolphins. It must stop this Sunday in San Diego, period! The Dolphins have a chance to turn around their entire season with a victory out west, and restore some confidence inside the locker room going into the bye week.
