    Hopefully he dosen't run around sideways like he does on kickoffs and punts.

His stints at WR with Hamilton were marred by dropped balls, and when he played RB you always knew he was one big hit away from coughing it up. He was a scary player whether you were playing against him or with him.
    Thank you for this insight. Hopefully he can get it together starting with this Sunday.
    COME ON' RYAN!!!

    Three career carries. My god this team and the staggering lack of depth is mind boggling.

    I don't like thiggy as a ball carrier running back and I don't much like him anymore on the offense over other options either in some packages...last year it made sense cause we didn't have much talent...

    But gillislee does nothing for me as a ball carrier also...the 3 deep rb core needs a make over this offseason
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    why is thigpen even on this team? he's supposed to be a good return man yet he's awful at that and makes one bad decision after another regarding fair catches and when to take the ball out of the endzone. he had some moments last year but this season ha has been total sh*t.

    Maybe they put him at RB and then flank him out wide on a LB? I'm not impressed with his vision or speed on KR/PR duties.

    The OL blocks for the run no worse than that of the average team in the league.

    My vote is to give Thigpen more time at running back and less at returner. Or less time at running back and also less time at returner.

    He can't do any worse right? Just don't lose 9 yards on any runs and I will say he is a success!!
    The year of the U
    R1: Micheal Bennett DT Ohio State(After trading down to gain extra 3rd rounder)
    R2: Denzel Perryman LB Miami
    R3: Laken tomlinson G Duke
    R3b: Ladarius Gunther CB Miami
    R4: Phillip Dorsett WR Miami
    R5: Adrian Amos Safety Penn State
    R6: Warren Herring DT Wisconsin
    R7: Kaleb Johnson G Rutgers
    At a time when the Dolphins fanbase needs a boost, and the U has talented players that somehow went unnoticed, what better time to go heavy on drafting Hurricanes??

    He's going to fair catch his handoffs.
