When asked why the first team offense has struggled especially in the redzone Gase replied: “It hasn’t been good...We aren’t showing all of our stuff and won’t show it all."
Ryan Tannehill has the second best passer rating in the redzone in 2016 and throughout the two years under Gase our offense has been one of the best in the league in the redzone. Don’t worry about our offense. Why would we show our whole offense to the league in preseason. Preseason is a time to clean up your mistakes. For example: Gase loves to run screens but we’ve been pretty bad with them. That’s why we keep attempting them in preseason, to get better. He also acknowledged that penalties must be cut down. False starts, pass interferences, delay of games, holding, etc. all need to stop. The Dolphins were the most penalized team in 2017 and if that doesn’t change this will be a long season of us beating ourselves up.
Another big reason the offense hasn’t produced is that possibly our top 2 redzone threats haven’t played. Frank Gore hasn’t played in preseason yet and really doesn’t have to. Gase knows what he brings to the table. We might see Gore suit up for preseason week 3 which is generally the “dress rehearsal” game where the starters play the most out of the four games. Another threat who has played, rookie Mike Gesicki, has only been targeted twice. Gesicki has been thrown into a lot of blocking situations which is his weakest part of his game. He’s handled it pretty well from my point of view but this is exactly what preseason is for to work on the weaker part of your game. We know Gesicki can catch, that’ll show come regular season.
The only thing that worries me about this offense are penalties. Everything else is fine. We have weapons upon weapons at every position. If everyone can stay healthy this offense can do some damage in 2018.
