Miami Dolphins: Final offseason moves that need to be made

Miami Dolphins v Cleveland BrownsLike most of the other 31 teams in the league, the Miami Dolphins are just about to wrap up OTA’s and minicamp before the team prepares for training camp towards the end of July.

There are still many things that the team needs to address prior to the start of training camp. I have said it before and will say it again; this is a “make-or-break” offseason for the Fins. If there is no product on the field that reflects a hopeful offseason, then Miami is in big trouble.

The most crucial topic I believe the Dolphins need to address before heading into training camp is the productivity of a healthy offensive line and the consistency of the offense led by first year offensive coordinator Bill Lazor and third-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill. An offense that is under new control is always going to be a major test during the summer when the coach and team are changing the way the offense was from a year ago. Bill Lazor comes to Miami from Philadelphia, one of the fastest offenses in the entire league that was run by head coach Chip Kelly and Lazor.

With the intensity that Lazor brings to the offense, I feel that it is the perfect fit and identity for the Dolphins, which didn’t really have a “set” identity the last couple of seasons. The first thing that the Dolphins did to begin the development of their new offense was to draft big, athletic offensive linemen which keep up with the pace of an “up-tempo” style of offense. No offense to any lineman that reads this, you are all perfect inside. And with the type of players the Dolphins have on offense, along with a solid, athletic 0ffensive line that can keep Tannehill on his feet and not on the ground, it’s a match made in heaven for a quarterback such as Tannehill to succeed.

Being a Dolphins fan my whole life, I have faith in both coach Philbin and Ryan Tannehill that they will lead us in the right direction. Dol-Fans all across the country should continue to look at the bright future that this team is presenting to all of its followers. In the midst of a new stadium renovation and an exciting offseason already underway, the Dolphins are heading in the right track to a successful 2014-2015 campaign.
