DAVIE – We still haven’t seen the Dolphins’ downfield passing game, the one that’s supposed to be led by the speedster, wide receiver Mike Wallace, and the capable one, Brian Hartline. That’s a disappointment as well as an eye opener.
The fact that’s becoming apparent is the Dolphins don’t have a deep threat aside from Wallace. None. That’s why we haven’t seen the downfield passing game in training camp yet.
It’s not a big surprise the Dolphins don’t have a deep threat to replace Wallace. After all, he’s elite. There’s not many like him in the NFL. The surprise is the Dolphins have no one else – no one – that seems to be able to run a deep route, get open and catch the ball.
There’s no reason to panic. After all, we still haven’t seen the first pre-season game so there’s no reason to be worried. But it’s a concern that the Dolphins haven’t showed this hyped deep passing game on the field. It’s also a concern no one aside from Wallace, and to a lesser extent Hartline, can come close to being an effective deep threat. ...
Wallace said Thursday he has “a lot more strength in my groin,” which means he’s getting healthier. That’s a good thing because without Wallace the Dolphins have no deep passing game. None.
