Dolphins players questioning offensive play calling

It’s no secret the Miami Dolphins coaches have had their share of questions/criticism from PhinNation’s readers.  But most of us are just overzealous fans, right?  I mean, if you’re a reader of this blog, you know that I am not happy with the lack of creativity on offense.  I’m also VERY opposed to Mike Sherman’s consistent abandonment of the running game.

Well, according to Jeff Darlington of NFL network, some of the players in the Dolphins locker room are questioning the offensive play calling and game plan:

“Let me not overstate this: The locker room is still together,” Darlington explained on NFL Network’s “Around The League Live.” “There’s still a good vibe in there. I talked to several players today and they still feel like they can get this season back on track.

“However, there is some question of what offensive coordinator Mike Sherman is starting to do and it really started to come to a head after Sunday’s 27-17 loss to the Patriots.”

Darlington goes on to point out that the Dolphins ran the ball 22 times in the first half for over 100 yards (4.7 ypc average).  But, despite leading 17-3 at the half, the Dolphins called only 8 running plays in the 2nd half (there was one run by Tannehill on a pass play, where he was forced to scramble).  (continued on page 2, CLICK HERE)
