One of the greatest unknowns for us fans, media and even other teams around the NFL is the Miami Dolphins offense. What is it going to be like, how fast is it going to be run and what will their philosophy be? On Sunday, we will start to get some answers because according to Mike Wallace, we haven’t seen much of it in preseason.
"About 12 percent," Wallace told the Miami Herald. "We have a big playbook, so we didn't run hardly anything in the preseason. Maybe 12-15 percent."
Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor echoed the same sentiments and his focus is on scoring points all the time. He doesn’t want to have to rely on the defense to get the job done. Instead, he wants the offense to go out and score as many touchdowns as possible.
"We've got to do a good job getting points on the board," Lazor said. "That's how we can contribute to winning. There are a lot of ways to do it. There are some weeks where we're going to do it running the ball more. Some weeks we're going to do it throwing it more."
Mike Pouncey, who is part of the new leadership group on the team, feels that the offense can be something special in 2014.
"It could be really good," Pouncey said. "You've seen it last year with the Philadelphia Eagles. They obviously had one of the best offenses in the NFL. We're hoping to go out and do the same thing with our offense. We've got the playmakers to do it. Tannehill's been playing really good, we fixed the offensive line and just can't wait to see how it looks on Sunday."
