    I honestly think going back and using a FB for blocking and making holes for the run game is going to be probably the single most change in this team for the better. This kid likes to destroy people and open holes. He also used to play qb so watch out for some trickery.

    Can’t wait for the season to start. Less spread more smash mouth football please.

    I'm sure it'll help on 3rd and short and goal line situations.

    I am so excited to be going back to a little smash mouth. Every missed short yardage play these past several years has driven me nuts, 3rd and 1 has become terrifying! I want to see Cox crush defenders and short yardage to be a given.

    All this finesse crap that have been with this team since Saban left can leave. I want to see more power football.

    Hopefully, Flores will bring a quarterback sneak as well. How we had one of the more athletic quarterbacks in the league with Tannehill and never ran a quarterback sneak is so far beyond me.

    This!

    "I think with the way offenses have trended I would say in the last 10 years, really away from the fullback into more spread, not a lot of teams know how to defend the two-back run game,” Miami coach Brian Flores said Friday. “It all moves in circles, right? I think, for us, I think having the ability to do that may be an advantage, it may not be an advantage. I don’t know.”

    It got to the point where 3rd and 8 was easier for us than 3rd and one.......we often passes on 3rd and short cause we couldn't get a yard on the ground.

    I have concerns on how effectively he can run the bubble screen on 3rd and 1

    You are absolutely right. Maybe all of those false starts in short yardage situations were strategic so we could get into more manageable down and distance?

    Gase is gone so we'll run the ball on 3rd and short and pass it on 3rd and long......with Gase we did the opposite

    If you guys had Tannehill in last year I think you would have beat us in GB.

    Luckily it was a joke, but I do love me some smashmouth football. Bring me a 2 tightend set with a fullback on 4th and goal all day long

    I think he's eventually going to be a fan favorite here. Watching his highlights, Cox can really block and do a lot of things. Likely a special teams ace, who adds physicality to the running attack.
