Less Wildcat for Dolphins?

South Florida Sun-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Beat writer Mike Berardino:

The Wildcat is still around, and I suspect we'll still see it here and there in 2010, although probably not as often as in the past two seasons.

The Dolphins ran four Wildcat plays in the second preseason game at Jacksonville, all of them in the red zone. Three of those gained a combined 6 yards rushing – no first downs, no touchdowns – and the fourth saw a holding call wipe out a 12-yard gain around right end for Ricky Williams.

Against the Falcons last week, the Dolphins ran two more Wildcat plays, both in plus territory (the 38- and 23-yard-lines), but they only gained a combined 5 yards. So that makes a combined six Wildcat snaps so far this season – all but one of them going to Ronnie Brown; Patrick Cobbs took the other – for a combined 11 yards, plus a 10-yard holding call. No first downs, no touchdowns. Not yet, anyway.
