    You do realise he is a top 10 if not top 5 punt returner? The internet never ceases to amaze me.

    lol its always funnny to read all the ppl on finheaven who think they actually know the dolphins gameplan for every game. Face it ppl, no one knows philbins game plan, everyon sittin here sayin he is sittin out you are just taking a guess like everyone else, philbin wont give out his gameplan to anyone, miller might be involved in the gameplan, no one knows, but the speculation can continue as usual.

    outside of week 1 what has he done? take away that 1 punt and Thigpen averages 9.27 yards per punt return which is 23rd. he is also 25th in kickoff returns. in the Jets game he is why we started inside the 20 on 3 occasions

    he fields punts at the wrong time inside the 20, his decision making is very questionable, please dont base everything on stats and watch the game

    And that fumble recovery last week against the Bungles is solely on Thigpen. Another huge problem with Thigpen is he doesnt field the punts, if he doesnt start doing that and helping this team out with hidden lost yards he will find himself playing north of the border yet again! No way does he take snaps from Miller, your out of your mind. In the preseason he barely sniffed a run, he was mostly used as a slot receiver on offense, and that wasn't until the 4th quarter when teams are just trying to end games!

    I do agree he has had some nice kick returns, but he has had alot of issues back there, hence the reason we see Bess back there during the crucial moments of games, that doesn't speak well of Thigpen if Philbin and Co are putting Bess back there at his sole position during crunch time! Bess is 1 of 2 weapons on offense so throwing him out there for special teams says alot about the faith in Thigpen in crunch time!

    This forum wants him to play because he averages way more yards per carry and is a big play threat whereas Daniel Thomas sucks ass and is still playing for some reason.

    Does he? He was brilliant last week, very effective passing out sports drinks.

    4.0 YPC is sort of the benchmark for RBs. It's been that way for a Looooooong time in the NFL. Thomas has had ample opportunity to do his thing,
    and has not done it. Miller has looked better in a shorter time. Just the way it is.

    I hope this doesn't lead to another Ronnie Brown thing, where people are convinced he's "Elite" and then
    he goes on to do......Nothing.....as he's traded away.

    11 carries for 40 yards and a 3.6 average.

    Sounds about right.

    Thanks Shifty!

    I like the guy he was at one time a 1st round prospect. I think in a year or 2 he can be a legit starter. I would like to see him improve on the blocking before we relied on him for alot. I dont want to see Tanny get killed b/c this kid wiffed on a block.

    A golden opportunity for Miller. I would like to see him take advantage of it and contribute with a big game.

    Just win Phin baby!
