Dolphins’ Running Game Going Nowhere

Dolphins_Ryan_Tannehill_2012While it’s obvious the Miami Dolphins’ biggest problem is keeping quarterback Ryan Tannehill upright, the lack of a consistent and dependable running game isn’t making the job any easier.

And it’s not only that the Dolphins aren’t having success running the football (they rank 28th in the league with a mere 69.6 yards a game). Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman has pretty much gone further and further from remaining committed to it.

The Dolphins had a season-low 11 rushing attempts for 22 yards against the Ravens on Sunday, and have only run the ball 95 times this season compared to 182 pass attempts (17 of those rushing attempts belong to Tannehill). Miami has not run it more than 20 times in a game since Week 2 against the Colts.
