Bill Lazor held his weekly press conference on Monday and took a lot of the blame for the way the Dolphins offense has looked the past two weeks. Lazor, who said that the Dolphins are averaging only 5.2 yards per pass attempt, said that everyone must do better and they need to get it fixed immediately.
"There's no doubt the blame rests 100 percent on me," Lazor said. "That rests on the coordinator, and getting everyone to do it the right way. You can count the number of throws you think are errant, the number of drops, the protection issues. They're all true. In the end that's on the coordinator. I'm very discouraged about the job I've done in the passing game. But I'm very encouraged about where we're headed."
Lazor also addressed the loss of Knowshon Moreno and didn’t sugarcoat the loss, noting that they will miss his production
"It hurts because No. 1, he's a productive player and has proven that," Lazor said. "No. 2, anyone who watches the game can see the emotion Knowshon plays with. There's no doubt losing him at the point we did in the game hurt, but that's the NFL. It really doesn't change who we are. It changes the fact Knowshon isn't there, but he'll be back."
The Dolphins signed Daniel Thomas earlier today to replace Moreno but one cannot simply step in and replace the intensity and emotion that Moreno brought to the team. Others will need to step up and fill that void to get this team ready to play each week.
