You can’t win, if you can’t score. Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin understands this, so he is hoping to see his starting offense find a way to rack up more points when they are on the field.
It may sound a little silly to simplify the game to that point, but when the Dolphins offense managed just one field goal in five tries during their Week 3 preseason match up against the Dallas Cowboys, it was clear that the Dolphins offense has a lot of work to do.
“Our offensive first group has to score more points,” Philbin said, via the Miami Herald.
Philbin turned to offense over to Bill Lazor this season after firing his good friend Mike Sherman, but so far the new offense hasn’t been as promising as Philbin wants to see.
In order to get better, Philbin wants to see the offense “pushing the pace a little faster. It’s something that has to get a little quicker.”
Whether or not that works remains to be seen.
