Dolphins RB Reggie Bush on the changes in the offense from last year: “No huddle. Very up-tempo and fast-paced offense. That’s the biggest thing right off the bat. That means our conditioning is going to have to be high, and we’re going to run a lot of plays in real games. So that’s something we have got to be prepared for. We’ve got to play fast and know the system; we can’t have split-second indecision because it could mess up a play or a whole drive.”
He went on to talk about the pace (perhaps 90 plays a game): "That’s a lot of plays. I was just asking our running back coach (Jeff Nixon), ‘Is this going to be the temp in the game?’ We’re pretty fast right now, but usually we practice faster than we should play. I don’t know, we’ll see. Hopefully the tempo will go down a little bit and save some guys because that’s a lot of plays in one game.”
For a team to play an up tempo offense effectively, everyone has to be on the same page. The Dolphins offense could really struggle this year with lack of talent at QB and WR, and a lack of commitment to the running game would certainly hurt Bush.
