Analyzing the Miami Dolphins Roster: Running backs

Moving on from the quarterback position, we now focus on the position that has slowly become unimportant in the eyes of organizations, the running back position.

How can Bill Lazor improve the Miami Dolphins for next season?

The 2014 season had several bouts of triumph and heartbreak. Early on in the trek, the Miami Dolphins offense commandeered by Bill Lazor seemed to lack the fire and tempo necessary to be a playoff caliber, NFL offense.

The Miami Dolphins mediocre season ends in disappointment

After the Miami Dolphins lost to the New York Jets on Sunday, it put an end to a season in which at times looked very positive. Miami at one point had an elite defense and a quarterback who was having a breakout season, along with a running back who proved he can get the job done. Ryan Tannehill posted over 4,000 yards and was the first Miami quarterback to do so since Hall of Famer...

Lamar Miller’s 97-Yard TD Vs. Jets Was Longest Run In Dolphins History (GIF)

Lamar Miller entered Sunday needing 79 rushing yards to reach 1,000 on the season. He only needed one carry to take care of that. In the third quarter against the New York Jets, the Miami Dolphins running back took the handoff at his own 3-yard line and went nearly untouched for a 97-yard touchdown run. We’re guessing that’s not how the Jets defense drew it up. Miller’s impressive...

Jets beat Dolphins in Rex Ryan's likely finale as coach

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- The New York Jets won their season finale Sunday, which probably won't be enough to save coach Rex Ryan's job. Geno Smith had his best game in a rocky season, throwing for a career-high 358 yards and three touchdowns to help Ryan and the Jets beat the Miami Dolphins 37-24. Smith's performance more than negated a 97-yard run by Lamar Miller, the longest play...
