    Konrad a weapon???

    I'm trying to understand why Konrad doesn't have the ball thrown his way more often and why he never runs ball

    Since he's been drafted, Wanny & Gailey always said during training camp that Konrad will be a biggest part of our offense and he's not... I know he's been injured recently but still...

    Maybe it's because of Chan's playbook???? i dunno???

    I like this guy and i'm sure he can be a threat...

    I have a feeling he will be available (not protected) for the Texans next year and they'll sign him....and then.... be a great player...

    what's your opinion on that?
    Mirror, mirror on the wall... Who is the best team of them all...

    GO FINS!!!

    Konrad might touch the ball once or twice a game so it has to be Chan's playbook.

    Remember Daryl Johnston at Dallas - that is Chan's idea of a FB: block and catch. But we have never thrown enough to Konrad on 1st down especially. Personally, I would rather see us go 2 TE's and put Weaver in there - he's looked like an excellent receiver.

    check this out

    from http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/f...lphins%2Dfront

    Q: With the struggles of the running game continuing, why don't the Dolphins try any get Rob Konrad involved more ala Mike Alstott? Frank Vusir, Hamilton, Ontario

    A: Unfortunately for Konrad, the Dolphins don't run many fullback dive plays or use many one-back sets featuring their fullback. Also, Lamar Smith is a bruising type of runner like Konrad only with better speed and elusiveness. I also don't know how much Konrad's right shoulder is bothering him.

    thanks Dolphan39...

    i saw that today too... Marvez is right on the Konrad being kind of a similar back like Smith. But like you said, Konrad is not enough part of the offense in the passing game and that's a waste of talent (...and a waste of 2nd round pick since we pick Dyer).

    I've been saying this all season now about Rob. It's a major waste of talent not to get him more touches on offense!


    :monkey: Chan not calling more plays designed to get Rob some touches.

    Don't forget

    that the run blocking is bad enough w/the FB blocking so handing off the Konrad in the 2 back set makes no sense; but we should be getting Konrad on a LB and throwing to him on 1st and 2nd down. :yell:

    i think if the fins .............

    mix the passing with a full house backfield, especially since chan doesn't ever use it, it will confuse the defense so bad, anything will work!
