Miami Dolphins' Running Game Is An Embarrassment

There is a pretty good chance that if you were playing for the Miami Dolphins last night, you could have run for more than two yards. You might have broken your leg or woke up with bruised ribs from a giant man landing on top of you, but when it comes to the box score, you would have been better than anyone running the ball for the Dolphins last night. The media probably would have given you a pass to because you have never played professional football before.

Now if anyone blames the dysfunctional locker room for the poor display of football last night, they are out of their minds. I also don’t want to hear about the missing holes on the offensive line. The Dolphins have rushed for less than 25 yards in three games this year. What are they odds that they miss Reggie Bush yet? I’ll take that bet. I’ll also take the bet that the Dolphins coach loses his job for offensive incompetence before a dysfunctional locker room.

I didn’t expect the Dolphins to be great this year, but I did expect something better than this. I also wonder why the NFL thought Miami-Tampa Bay would be a good Monday night game. It was more comical than anything. If you think about the Monday night and even the Thursday night games so far this year, I actually find myself questioning the NFL’s marketing team.

Keep it mind they pretty much print their own money, so I never thought I’d find myself doing that. I mean, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers covered so at the end of the day, that’s all that really matters.
