Lamar Miller needs to rush for 1000 yards this year for Miami to be successful.

Yes I agree but I think he rushes for 1400 while Gilleslee chips in 500 rushing and 500 receiving!

Frankly, I'd be SHOCKED if Miller ran for 1400 yards this season. That would put him in the top 6 (based upon last years stats), and I just don't think he's there yet.

Just hope he hits 1000. Lets be realistic.

I think people should be talking about Brent Grimes. Comeback player of the year.

Love Miller. I think he'll rumble for 1200. We should have great balance.

Id be happy and a bit surprised if he hits 1000 myself, not so much based on him but on the o-line. We struggled last year rushing, as a team we only broke 100 yards in 6 games. So to think now suddenly that is all fixed and we are a strong rushing team.. not going to drink that kool aide just yet..

Phins don't seem to let their running backs get all that many carries per game. Prefer RB by committee. Whichever RB turns out to be the starter probably will not get much over 1000 if that imo.

If that. They seem to be built for passing this year. 2 scat backs and new WRs.

Who are these two scat backs? I haven't heard of them.

Adding Wallace and Keller to the lineup will help the running game. Just by running Wallace on deep routes will cause a lot of double coverage including one of the safeties. Defenses will no longer be able to stack 8 in the box and dare Tannehill to beat them with the pass. Having a fast deep threat and a TE that can create separation will cause defenses to back up and play the entire field. I think Miami will have a very balanced offensive game plan this year.

Lamar has the capabilities of having that type of game, the verdict is still out on Gillislee though, dude only played 1 year as a starter with the Gators. I'm hoping he will be more of that bruiser back we will need on short yard situations, we all know Thomas is not our guy. I was pretty surprised to see DT involved in the uniform unveiling, I got to admit, that was pretty darn funny.

All I'm looking for out of Miller and Gillislee this season is that they both rush for over 4.5 yards per carry and rack up more than 10 touchdowns between the two of them on the ground. If they do that, it will take a ton of pressure off of Tannehill and really help the offense.

Gilleslee is not a bruiser but his vision is excellent so he can get the tough yardage by hitting the proper hole and hitting it quickly!
The guy is so smooth and deceptively fast....I think him and Lamar compliment each other very well it's going to be exciting this year if our Oline does their job!

I agree. I think the offensive line will be the biggest factor in determining how fluid our run game will be this season. We have been alright in pass protection the past few seasons, but well below average in protecting the run.

Miller weights 220 lbs. A little too big to be a scat back. Same with Gillislee at 210.

When I think of scat back, I think of John Avery, maybe even Reggie Bush at 200 lbs flat.

I don't think the question about Miller is "Can the rush for 1000 yds", but "Can he pass pro for Tanny". That will determine, to me, how good a year Miller has or does not have...

Secondly, I don't think Millier is the "Guy Nobody's Talking About". At this point, he's it by default and there's been a lot of talk on several different boards, particularly after we didn't really make a concerted effort to upgrade the position, even tho they drafted Gillislee...

I was mainly talking about the media and fans outside of South Florida not the Phin fans on blogs. I for one am expecting big things from Miller & Gillislee this year.
