According to rookie head coach Joe Philbin, the West Coast offense doesn’t need a star, No. 1 target. But projected starters Brian Hartline and Devone Bess and possibly Legadu Naanee could be put in roles bigger than what they are used to.http://espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post/_/ ... -set-at-wr
Miami traded Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears in the offseason. The Dolphins expect to throw the ball a lot with a new West Coast offense, probably more than last year, despite a group with a lot to prove.
I disagree that Hartline and Bess are in over their heads...As a matter of fact i think that Bess is as good as Welker any day of the week. Hartline is a very solid player and could easily have a break out season with a little focus on getting him the ball.
With the new offense using the TE and RB as a receiver more It will take the redzone load and possession catches that Marshall was used for.
Losing Marshall is not a death sentence for this group of wideouts. I think between Gates, Wallace, or Moore having another year. We will be just fine.
