Conventional wisdom would blame the attention that offseason acquisition Brandon Marshall gets for Miami's below-average running game, but I'm not buying it. It's not like Chad Henne and the Dolphins are lighting things up through the air, either, ranking 17th in passing yards and tied with the Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers for 22nd in the league with just eight touchdown passes. Marshall is 24th in ESPN standard scoring among wide receivers, behind Braylon Edwards and tied with Roy E. Williams. The fact is the Dolphins, second-worst in the AFC in points per game, are struggling all around, in red zone efficiency as well as just getting to the red zone, but I think part of the reason is the difficult schedule, and the fact they're not giving their running backs enough opportunities.
To see Eric's thoughts on such Cowboys as Tony Romo, Miles Austin and Felix Jones, you must be an ESPN Insider.
