When the Dolphins first brought Adam Gase on to be the head coach I did a four-game review of Gase as an offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears. It was an arduous task but it was very rewarding.
I decided to do the same with the Dolphins offense under Gase's regime. This time I needed help, so I brought on board Daniel Gamboa or @MrDanPhin. Daniel and I have had many X’s and O’s talks on twitter. I knew he was just the man to help me out with this task.
After looking at weeks 1-4 we both agreed that Gase’s offense was never set in stone but he attacked different defenses in different ways. He would have completely different styles week in to week out.
Seattle’s defense makes its money by being aggressive. One way to slow down a fast-flowing defense is by screens and runs with built-in bubble screens.
Gase also wanted to slow up the lightning fast defense by showing the defense another thing to think about with end around options and read option quarterback runs. The last unique way Gase attacked the Seattle defense is with a 3 x 1 formation unbalanced triple slant.
