...

"It's about being a great player," said Wallace, who averaged 17.1 yards per reception and eight touchdowns a season before joining the Dolphins.

Based on the way the Dolphins have utilized the team's $60 million new toy in the first four games, it is as clear as filtered water that the breakneck NFL pace Wallace was on has hit a speed bump because Miami's coaches don't know how to use him. ...

"He's a humble, hard working young man who loves to play the game," Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said.

That's coming from a coach who spent four seasons with Wallace, and still vouches for him despite his complicated divorce from the Steelers. ...

"When you want to help your team make plays and you talk about wanting the ball and more opportunities people talk about you're crying, or you're not being a team player. I feel like that's being a team player," Wallace said. ...


He's a speed-oriented receiver in the Wallace mold, so the Ravens spend all game laboring to create favorable situations.
The Dolphins refuse to move Wallace from the Z-spot.
Joe Philbin and staff are doing a poor job setting up big plays to Wallace, creating favorable matchups to counteract the cloud coverage he gets on most snaps.
Film study shows Tannehill is often sacked trying to wait for Wallace to get open downfield, which hints more max protection is needed.
It would also benefit the Dolphins to have Wallace run more drags, slants, fade stops and roll always. Miami could utilize a half-field game like Washington or San Francisco uses by having Tannehill roll out to the right, allowing the two to improvise more like Wallace did with Ben Roethlisberger. ...

This is a pretty good assessment but I'd add that RT needs to pull the trigger if he's manned up

I agree with this as well. Sherman is one of the offensive coordinators that believes his system is a good system and he can just plug players in there to make it work. Unfortunately, as we saw with Reggie Bush, he is slow to adjust his schemes to their strengths and weaknesses. I was surprised in game 2 that he did do some things to get Wallace more involved in the game, but that has just been it.

This is on the head coach as well, in my opinion. That is why you get the title etc ..., he needs to force change if he has too.

This is so simple. Put in an audible that if the corner is playing off Wallace, he runs a quick slant or quick hitch. If they want to play off him, exploit it. Once they start tightening up, you run the sluggo or the out and up and burn them over the top.

Why can't our offensive genius coaches figure this out?

They seem to be mental Titanics. It takes a lot of time to turn that big boat around.

Ego. My way or the highway. Shula used to adapt his system to the talent of players. When he got Marino he immediately went from a ball bashing mentality to Don Coreyell Shula.

Tannehill should be pounding the table for that. Should be running to the sidelines demanding to audible to Wallace in those situations.

Or he could choose to ignore Wallace. Leadership often requires being the first one to reach out to make an agreement.

I agree with you AQNOR......Joe Philbin was an OC in his time with Green Bay. He may respect Mike Sherman a little to much. It's pretty obvious that Sherman is REALLY slow to make changes to utilize his personnel in the best way possible.

Miami has invested TOO MUCH in Mike Wallace not to use him.

The Colts defense is 4th in receptions allowed with only 72 receptions allowed so far this season, and the Saints are 7th with 74. Two pretty good squads we have went up against.

Baltimore is ranked 12th with 84 receptions allowed. Let's see if he can get the ball.

(The Dolphins are ranked 24th with 104 receptions allowed.)

Of course, stats are skewed because everyone plays different teams with different strengths to acquire these stats.

After the bye week it's the bills at the Dolphins. I'm sure we will see Wallace get the ball in that one.

Impossible. Vontae Davis is on their squad. Remember he's a waste!

I haven't seen that dog since the Hannah Barbara Olympics cartoon from the late 80s/ early 90s.

Good find.
