Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace is still frustrated. Wallace has 30 receptions and 398 yards so far this season. His 13.3 yards per reception average is 3.5 yards below his career average. For someone considered to be one of the league’s best deep threats, that certainly is frustrating.
That led Wallace to have another conversation with offensive coordinator Mike Sherman.
“We’ve got to be able to throw the ball deep,” said Wallace, via the Miami Herald. “We have to be able to back people up and not have people sitting us. We have to balance it out.”
Mike Wallace has just four plays of 20 yards or more, a mark that ties him for 70th in the league. For what it is worth though, he has dropped the ball seven times, a mark that is third in the league.
“For whatever reason, something has happened here or there,” Sherman said about trying to throw deep.
Wallace isn’t the only player questioning Sherman’s offense.
“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 loss to the Patriots.”
