Dolphins still talking about RB committee with Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas
Lamar Miller is listed as the Dolphins' starting running back, but head coach Joe Philbin said Wednesday that such a designation is just "the starting point." He says he has been impressed by both Miller and Daniel Thomas during the preseason and expects both of them to be big contributors this year. As to whom he thinks is better right now, Philbin said, "It's very, very close."
This is so frustrating. Lamar Miller is not the next Walter Payton, but we know what Daniel Thomas is; he's a sluggish runner who doesn't add much in the passing game. Miller is the better of the two players, and he should prove that soundly throughout the season. However, for Week 1, the Dolphins seem set on utilizing a bit of a committee approach. Thus, I think Miller is just a low-end RB2 this week against the Browns. Better days lie ahead for him.
