    Tannehill needs a running game.............

    Let not fool ourselves , Ryan Tannehill should open the season up as the starting QB...

    I was impress by his ball fakes to running back,but the Dolphins needs a top-selves RB to
    help Ryan get to the next level...

    Can Lamar Miller be that guy?
    Can Daniel Thomas handle being a feature back?
    Do Jerome Messam deserve a shot?

    might be me but Reggie Bush looked pretty good when he did play. Lamar Miller should be good with time people are down on him but look at the holes his o-line produced compared to what the starters had

    We don't know who the starting QB is going to be, so lets just agree to disagree and say the DOLPHINS need a running game. We have a fairly deep stable at running back. We have Long, Pouncey, and Martin. While Martin is a rook, the concensus seems pretty good that he is the real deal. So, we have the 2 guards. I'm not sold on Steinbach or Hicks (yet), and Incognito, James, Garner and the rest I would grade out as C+, or "Meh"...

    So all that being the case, I think there is at least a possibility we may have a good running game. That would HOPEFULLY put us into 1st and 2nd down and short...thereby taking pressure off WHOEVER is the QB.

    Tannehill did look good last night. But it is preseason, game one. I'm not going to crown him king until he TAKES the job, and he's not close to doing that yet.

    In today's NFL, with this style of offense. I don't agree. Sure it would help, but I don't think it's needed.
    Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.

    I think everyone is over reacting as always here during preseason.

    will Thomas ever show us something, anything… consistently, that warrants a roster spot?

    I'm not worried about the run game. It will improve over last season. The O-line is significantly better, even if Martin is learning on the job. Last year's putrid O-line got Reggie 1,000 yards...as long as he stays healthy, the running game will keep defenses honest...if not it's Bush vs. secondaries and I like our chances there.

    Thomas I think continues to be somewhat a failure running between the tackles...this will be something to monitor through the rest of preseason. Miller didn't run great between the tackles but I think that was more because the second-string O-line wasn't opening anything up.

    It's always the running back's fault on this website. Have you not see our offensive line the past decade and a half?
