The Miami Dolphins finished last season with glaring needs at certain positions. The offensive line was a work in progress, and the defense needed a legit ...phinphanatic.com
I think I would give Buffalo the slight edge for now until we see what Miami's about.
I think Tua will be better than last yr. How much better will he be is big question???...We have weapons and mismatches all over the field now. We are DEEP.
But it means nothing if Tua doesn't take some leaps. Otherwise we'll be over analyzing 2 or 3 passes to a few receivers that could have changed the game when there should have been 10 - 15 more of equal value but never happened.
This is a volume touch offense. We averaged 63 plays per game in 2020. And while that doesn't seem much difference than the league high of 70, those 7 extra plays per game could an entire scoring drive.
We have a lot of mouths to feed and we have a ton of talent. If schemed correctly, we should be close to 70/game.
If we can't rely on our offense to dictate most of the games we are in this year, something is fundamentally wrong with our scheme or QB.
There are NO excuses with this much talent at the O skills and OL.
Tua better elevate this year. The training wheels are off and there is no room for excuses.
And too add contrast and clarify to all of the above statements.... Miami has NEVER invested this much draft capital, talent and coaching into the Offense since Dan left. We have stood by our decision with Tua and invested heavily. No other Miami QB has seen this much talent assembled around them since Dan. So, as I say... no excuses.
