Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has one glowing-in-neon issue with his unit and that, obviously, is Miami's red zone offense.
Yes, the Dolphins have been in the red zone a bunch so far this season -- 10 times in two games. That's very good. But they have scored only six times in those trips and that's bad. The 60 percent scoring rate is tied for 31st in the NFL.
The stat is important because the Dolphins are searching for a win and wins normally come down the highway of more points. So the topic of improving the red zone offense is something of a passion now for Daboll. And this video of Daboll speaking to reporters today makes that plain:
Did you catch that last part? No, not the part about the Colt McCoy biography. The part about Charles Clay.
Clay, Miami's rookie tight end/fullback, has not played yet this season as he's been recovering from a hamstring injury. But that might change this week. If he is active, and I believe he will be, Clay will have a package built for him.
Look for it.
You guys will remember I can show you only a limited amount of video. But audio? I can give you tons of unlimited sound.
I present to you today's Jason Taylor's press conference with the media.
He discussed his stance on where the team is. He talked about his disappointment that his talk about upgrading the team's practice habits, which I wrote about in Tuesday's Miami Herald, became public. (Sorry big guy, but news is news.) Taylor also made a very, very interesting point on what he thinks is going to happen this weekend in Cleveland:
"I always have a good feeling," Taylor said. "I believe we're going to win every game. And I believe we're going to get in this airplane Saturday and go up to Cleveland and kick somebody's ass."
For the Dolphins sake, that somebody should probably be wearing a Browns jersey and helmet.
