Takeaways from the Miami Dolphins’ first two preseason games

We are at the theoretical halfway point of the preseason with the Dolphins having played the Panthers this past weekend. In my opinion, I have seen some good, some bad, and some areas that need improvement. Here is my take. The first team offense is really clicking right now.

The Miami Dolphins Backfield Features Diversity

Last year Miami started the season with a great 1-2 punch of Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno. Unfortunately, Moreno was hurt early and it forced Miami to rely on Daniel Thomas. This proved to be a lackluster alternative when Miller came out of the game. Although rookie Damien Williams provided a few flashes, he was learning on the fly and he was not really ready to be a heavy contributor...

Last season, the Miami Dolphins went looking for a veteran running back to push incumbent starter Lamar Miller and make sure he had to earn his job.
