If there's one thing that Bill Lazor made sure to change the moment he got to Miami, it was this: Nobody is going to be glued to one particular spot at any one point of the game. There will always be someone on the move.
“Everybody is playing everywhere,” said Mike Wallace. “You just don’t have one job; you have a lot of jobs."
Last season, Mike Wallace was used in pretty much only one way: Run a deep route and draw the attention of the other players. To an extent, it did work. The problem was however was that he was always lined up in the same place, which limited the things he could do as an actual offensive weapon, so Wallace is extremely excited about this new offense.
“Now,” said Wallace, “they are not going to know where to find me.”
Wallace isn't the only one who stands to benefit from the amount of movement in Lazor's offense. Tight end Charles Clay will also become an even more potent weapon thanks to all the movement at the line of scrimmage.
“I’m not sure I know everything Coach Lazor has in store for me, but so far it’s been a lot of fun,” said Clay. “With this offense, this is a different type of shape I have to be in. I’m always moving.”
While Wallace and Clay are sure to be the most versatile mismatch makers, every skill position player stands to feature in this offense, and if all goes according to plan, no team will be able to truly predict what the Dolphins' next move will be.
