Some Dolphins not pleased with Mike Sherman’s Playcalling



I’m not saying we suck, just that we suck doing this.


The Herald’s Armando Salguero posted today about some of the recent embarrassments strung together by the Miami Dolphins, but perhaps the most interesting tidbit is the players’ disappointment in Offensive Coordinator Mike Sherman’s playcalling:

Guard Richie Incognito is unhappy Sherman stopped calling running plays in the second half of the New England loss and has been public about the Dolphins abandoning that which was working. “I think we should just keep running the football 30, 40 times a game,” Incognito says. “That’s our blueprint for success. We have to run the football for four quarters.”

The dislike for Sherman’s play-calling can be found throughout the Dolphins organization. One high-ranking person within the team is dumbfounded by Sherman’s approach in some situations, saying the coach misses “101 stuff” — meaning fundamental things.

Not good when players outwardly question the system. Usually means more losses on the way, or dismissals. Will be interesting to see if things get any better tonight for the Offense going up against a tough Bengals D.
