Can the Miami Dolphins’ rushing attack combine to rush for one-thousand yards this year?

DAVIE, Fla. -- When the Dolphins signed Knowshon Moreno back in March, the general opinion was that he would push incumbent starting running back Lamar Miller for his job this season.

Miami Dolphins 2014: 5 Most Pressing Questions Heading Into Training Camp

So much talent and not enough success. That continues to be the mantra that plagues the Miami Dolphins. It reminds me of the teams Don Shula had at the end of his career – the teams made up of former first round picks that went nowhere fast and fans and the media questioned whether he still had the Chutzpah he showed as a fiery young coach decades ago. Joe Philbin is no Don Shula...

Incumbent starter Lamar Miller holding RB1 reps over Knowshon Moreno early this offseason

If the ever evolving (we may be looking at a mini-camp holdout) Christine Michael/Marshawn Lynch conversation has taught us anything its that it is hard to affirm a true opinion of a player in June, particularly as it relates to any share of workload, perceived training camp battle, etc. With that said, there are plenty of situations to monitor and while the focus is on the storyline...

Miami Dolphins’ running back position up for grabs

Although we can’t get too much information from organized team activities, there are certain things to look for that could possibly give hints as to what the coaching staff is thinking.

Why The Dolphins May Part with Daniel Thomas

I had a chance to see Daniel Thomas play high school football here in north Florida. At the time he was a man playing against younger competition – running around, over and through them on a weekly basis. At Kansas State, he was impressive, so much so he was a second round pick of the Miami Dolphins. Now, after three seasons in the league and in his fourth campaign, the once great...
