Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams can be exciting, explosive weapons. The trading of Jay Ajayi for a fourth-round pick was not a popular one, obviously. But an under-discussed part of the reasons to move on from Ajayi is Gase wanted to see more of Drake and Williams. In this game, the two totaled 12 catches and each made a thrilling play that somewhat rewarded Gase’s confidence. Drake cannot fumble, as he did in the second quarter. But as demoralizing as that play was, Drake has the ability to exhilarate with his blinding speed. This adds a dimension that Ajayi just did not offer. The play to remember for Drake came in the third quarter. It was a 2nd-and-10 at the Miami 35 and Drake exploded through the middle, headed right, picked up key blocks from Anthony Fasano and Kenny Stills, threw a defender to the grass with a stiff-arm and dashed down the right sideline for a 42-yard gain. This is why Drake, given 10-14 carries in any given game, is likely to pop at least one for 40 or more, driving up his yards-per-carry average. Miami needed more big plays. On two other plays in the second quarter, Drake showed off dangerous pure speed and acceleration (on a swing pass) and a stronger-than-advertised physique and mentality (plowing through the middle and breaking a tackle on an inside run). Also in the second quarter, Williams showed why he is a favorite of Gase. Williams can be slippery but he can also pack a surprising punch. Williams’ first start of the season of course provided a remarkable second-quarter score. Williams brings an energy, relentlessness, spark and spunk the Dolphins have seemed to be missing. Jay Cutler rolled to the right and Williams caught the ball at the Raiders’ 10. Williams ran toward the right sideline and braced for a hit at the 3-yard line. Two Raiders put their heads down and one slammed in Williams’ shoulder pads. But Williams has an uncanny ability to stay on his feet after contact. He possesses great balance. Williams spun away and back inside after the collision, as if he were a pinball, stepped over a fallen Jarvis Landry (key block) and fully extended on a dive over the plane of the end zone for the score. It was extra effort. It was the ability to believe that a play does not end when contact occurs. It was, to say the least, encouraging.http://dailydolphin.blog.palmbeachpost. ... -a-review/
