Letter To Steve Ross


Please pass this on to everyone you know in the hope Steve Ross reads it.  It is my opinion that is makes no sense and reflects poorly on the coaching to not have a play designed to power run on 1 yard down to go plays. This situation happens almost every game and often decides the outcome. In the last two games the Dolphins have been running out of the shotgun or passing on plays like 3rd and 1 or 4th and 1. The have failed repeatedly in this formation at critical points of the last two games.  I am not sure what your coaches are telling you to explain why they don’t have a power run formation… But I would be happy to explain it. You take out your tight ends and replace them with offensive lineman.  You put a powerful lead blocker in the backfield, note if you don’t have a fullback (like our team) that is fine you, just put another lineman in there or possibly consider a D-Tackle. See William Perry as a reference or more recently watch the last game of the year against the Jets from 2013.  This now gives you 8 powerful drive blocking players in the game.   You hand off to running back who runs north and south following the 300 pound lead blocker or you just hand if off to the 300 pound lead blocker.  To understand why this will work almost every time, stop at the library and check out a book on basic physics. Pay special attention to the part of mass, inertia, and how an object in motion stays in motion.  Also, because this it is so hard to stop from getting a yard teams may overload extra players near the line. No problem you are paying Millions of dollars to a man named Mike Wallace. You split him out wide and if they match up with him man to man you consider taking a shot.

Pathetic. RE-SET button please...

Absolutely agree! Mr. Ross, please ask your coaches why they throw 42 times when your running back averages 7.2 yards per carry?

I am losing patience with the HC.
