    Why do Dolphin fans think Spiller can't run up the middle?

    alot of threads I read on this MB has a reference to "containing the edges" to minimize Spiller.
    He weighs more than C.Johnson.
    Got huge yds from inside the T's in preseason.
    Spiller is not afraid of contact or hitting the hole.

    I know he bumps it to the sideline after he gets the first down but why all the concern of the edges?

    I asked them on the Bills MB as well...

    Because Spiller is not a back who can push the pile.

    Can he run through the middle? Yes. Any back can if the middle is wide open.

    I don't know.

    Ask Reggie Bush, Cadillac Williams, Felix Jones, LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, etc.

    Spiller isn't a "cloud of dust and three yards" kind of back, over and over. Can he explode through a hole in the middle if it's there? Sure. But that depends more on your suspect O-line opening up those holes on a beefy and athletic D-line, with some pretty decent thumpers right behind it. On the outside is Spiller's best chance, especially with some of our OLBs being questionable edge-setters.

    Why do Bills fans think a lackluster O-line isnt as big a deal as having 3 RB's?

    I don't pretend to know more about the Fish than you do.
    I was wondering if there was an article that was posted here of if one of your more trusted posters said it (so it must be true).
    It has been a fairly common theme in alot of discussions about spiller lately
