Post Charting the Miami Dolphins: Snap counts, tendencies and ...
by Ben Volin
Observations and tendencies of the Dolphins’ offense and defense after re-watching the tape of Sunday’s 17-13 win over Cincinnati, plus complete snap counts:


* Once again, the Dolphins went heavy with their base personnel. They went with:

- Base personnel 2 RB, 1 TE, 2 WR on 27 plays
- 3 WR, 1 RB and 1 TE on 13 plays
- 2 WR, 2 TE and 1 RB on 12 plays
- 2 TE and 2 RB on nine plays
- 4 WR on just 1 snap


* The Bengals stacked the box with 8 defenders on 23 snaps (not including goal line situations), though a good portion came in the fourth quarter when the Dolphins were trying to run out the clock.

* The Dolphins ran 17 times against an 8-man front — including the stuffed attempts on third- and fourth-and-short in the first half — and six passes.



* I counted a blitz on 22 of 50 drop-backs by Andy Dalton (44 percent), about the same rate as the Dolphins’ previous four games.


* The Dolphins stacked the box just seven times on 65 snaps. Dalton hit Jermaine Gresham for 20 yards on a fourth down pass in which the Fins had 8 in the box.

We are the best run d and we dont stack the box...

Now that is impressive... Coulda swore our GM was unable to find talent.... Beef up the secondary and we are going to be mean...

I think we need improvement on the O-line still, and obviously need a WR a little different than Hartline or Bess to add another dynamic.

But realistically you can say we are 3 or 4 players away from being legit... Ink Hartline, give Reggie a back loaded 4 year deal will make things easier..

So long as RT continues on the path he has been on the last 2 weeks...

Caveat: These are the opinions of this user, and may differ from your opinion. Please use common sense before taking offense.
