, via the Detroit Free Press. “Yeah, Tannehill may run a little more, but it鈥檚 not like Brock can鈥檛 run. You look at what Tannehill was doing, it wasn鈥檛 like he was coming out trying to run for 50, 60 yards a game. If you gave him a situation where he had to pull it and run it, he did it.

If it鈥檚 short-yardage, something like that, and they do a zone-read and you don鈥檛 cover the quarterback and all they got to do is get 2 or 3 yards for a first down, Brock can do that as well. I don鈥檛 know if it鈥檚 going to be that much of a difference in what they try聽to do offensively, but we鈥檒l be ready to go.”There may not have been a difference in what the Dolphins were trying to do against the Bears last weekend, but the production in the overtime win — 541 yards and 31 points — set new highs for Miami this season.
