Dolphins want to get ground game going
Monday, November 19, 2012
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- The Miami Dolphins' offense has stalled, and the long list of reasons includes too many turnovers, not enough big plays and too many rookie moments by quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
So what bugs offensive coordinator Mike Sherman the most? None of the above. He said Miami needs to run the ball better.
The Dolphins haven't rushed for 100 yards since September, which helps explain why the offense has scored one touchdown in the past 10 quarters. As a result, Miami (4-6) takes a three-game losing streak into Sunday's game against Seattle (6-4).
The Dolphins' lack of a deep threat at receiver has allowed opposing defenses to gear for the run, but Sherman said predictability hasn't been a problem.
