Dolphins coaches need to "Feed the Wolf"
Practice what you preach.

The coaches have to get better, too. On offense, it seems no one has a great feel for the players yet, so sometimes a flow of good work gets strangely interrupted or diverted.
That is most apparent with backfield mates Brown and Ricky Williams. The two are sharing the load this year. Brown typically takes one series, and Williams takes the next.
But sometimes the substitution pattern is not so logical.
So Brown gains 10 yards, then 11 yards on consecutive carries, and then coaches decide that's the time to take him out of the game.
On another occasion, Brown gained 17 yards to the Buffalo 33-yard line with 11:34 left to play. So of course, he didn't get another carry until 2:53 was left in the game.
And with that, my head wishes to explode.
I understand the concept of keeping both running backs fresh. Do the Dolphins understand the concept of giving the ball to the hot runner?
