Miami to copycat Seattle?

Posted by Chris Brown on December 22, 2012 – 1:41 pm

After the Seahwaks victimize the Bills with their expertly run read option running game the Bills, knowing its a copycat league are aware they may see it again Sunday.

However, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill indicated this week that’s it’s not their bread and butter on offense.

“Yeah, we ran it a little bit last week,” said Tannehill. “It’s not something that we major in by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s something we have just as a changeup.

“I don’t know how it’s going to go. I feel like since we showed it a little last week and then they saw it several times against the Seahawks, I feel like they’re going to have a plan for that. I wouldn’t say we’re going to major in that at all, but it’s always a possibility to run a few times.”

Tannehill isn’t quite the athlete that Russell Wilson is, but knowing Miami struggled to run the ball in the first meeting and seeing Seattle roll up 270 rushing yards on the Bills last week, it likely crossed Joe Philbin’s mind to perhaps make more use of it this week.
