Great point. They still should be able to spread a defense out and run the ball for one yard, however. You are definitely right though. Miami isn't going to be able to line up in "big" personnel and power their way in short yardage situations on a regular basis.One quick thought...
Several people have bemoaned our weakness when it comes to 3rd or 4th and short.
For better or worse, we run a zone-blocking scheme that values foot-speed and repetition over power. This isn't going to change and players who are suited for this scheme are NOT going to do well on power downs like 3rd and 1.
This is NOT our skill-set... and it NEVER will be. What makes our running game dangerous is the same thing that makes us weak in these situations.
You take the bad with the good here.
