what about millers shoulders? maybe that is the reason why they have been cautious with him this season? lettin that shoulders heal up another year?
I think Miller isn't getting a lot of playing time because he doesn't know what he's doing yet. Watch the limited times he's in game. Tannehill will usually have to to tell him where he needs to line up, especially once a play is changed at the line. I think Sherman is trying to limit the amount of rookies on the field at any given due to the fact that Miami runs a no huddle and changes play so often. Tannehill, Martin, Lane, Matthews, and Miller are all rookies. But if you put all 5 of those guys on the field at once that is almost half your offense fielded as rookies.
Let's not forget that Miami has Jonas Gray waiting in the wings for the 2013 season.

At what point did we realize we were cutting the cord with Reggie because he's been absent from the passing game all year... If we're playing for the future you would imagine that Miller would get at least some burn. At the moment it just seems like Philbin is being blackmailed by DT.
Plus....The Reggie Bush we have now is not the same Reggie Bush we had before he got "hot sauced" by the Jets and dinged up his knee. He is tentative in the backfield, dances around, and has a lot of runs that end up being yardage losses. A lot of his runs that end up being 2-3 yard losses could be 2-3 yard gains if he would just hit the hole hard and fight for some yards. I like Reggie, but seeing him dance around in the backfield as much as he has been is driving me absolutely crazy.
I do agree though with those who wish Reggie would be used more in the passing game. I do think that is one aspect of his game we have not taken enough of an advantage of.
miller needs more carries period
