Should Miami run the Spread Option?

Should Miami run the Spread Option? 


I think RG3 and Russell Wilson are good players and could be great, but both play in some very innovative and creative offenses. Tanny was a WR so he has some speed and is athlethic enough to do it. Big risk of injury and hits to the QB (RG3 and Wilson yesterday both took some shots). What do you think?

Does Luck, Brady, Manning or Brees run the spread option?

LOL.  I can answer that, NO.

But I do get where the OP is coming from, because one of Tanny's strengths was his mobility, and effective finding an open man while on the move, rolling out.  I wanted to see him outside of the pocket more this year, myself.  Why not, the kid was a WR. 

Hey, Montana and Young were extremely mobile and did quite well in the WCO, I'd say.  In fact, now that I say it, come to think of it Tannehill has almost the same exact physique as Joe Montana did.

Just make sure Leonard Marshall isn't pursuing you from your blindside.

I think Miami needs playmakers at WR and TE more than anything.  I do think we have something potentially special at QB with RTH, so long as he continues to progress and learn.  The problem with the offense wasn't a lack of creativity, it was a lack of players who could properly execute the plays called. 

I personally would like to see Wallace, Moore, Bins and Mastrud replaced by next opening day.  I think the rookie Matthews is a player and is already a better WR than either Wallace or Moore.  Bins dropped too many passes for my liking and showed why he was cut by Cinci.  He'll get a look in training camp but i hope that FA and the Draft brings in skill players to replace these stiffs.  Mastrud, for all his blocking prowess, shouldn't be the an option at TE on ANY team.

No...and they are far healthier on average than guys like RG3, Wilson, and the others that do.....

the dolphins need the tightend from Noter dame i just wished we could cut Eggneww and Clay and just rework the roster at that position.

The Dolphins almost ran the spread back before it became popular because McMichael and Lee went to Wanny and they pushed for a change in offense , Saddly the Tightend coach grabbed McMichael by his ear and told him and Donald Lee get back to practice or he would send them to Arena league . Donald Lee told Wanny that they should run a four tightend set and that went over like the Terrell Owens to Miami with the fanbase .

I would say..NOOOOOO...please!

RG3 is a pure Run First QB, and Wilson is about the same type of player. These type of QBs will get injured often and will lose the important games. This game was a clear example that run first QBs are exciting to watch for a few games but become ineffective once their game style is figured out.

RG3 was required to be a pocket passer due to his injury and he showed how horrible he is passing the ball and the redskins offense looked bad. Wilson is a little better at passing but his nature of Run First made him miss important plays. One play in particular was when his WR was wide open for a TD but Wilson decided to run for 18 yards instead.

Tannehill has shown good things and has made the rookie mistakes expected, but I like how he has played with the limited talent around him. We will see how he develops next season.

Might be an option if Tannehill really sucks next year to switch to a spread option, Then the next season i would pick up his college teammate Manziel or Taj Boyd.. Heh a guy can dreambiggrin

While Montana could move around, he was FAR from a running QB.

Rodgers missed time in his Super Bowl year because of concussion. And Steve Young's career was cut short because of concussions.

I would rather have a statue in the pocket who has amazing pocket presence and never gets hurt.
