Thank you to Chris G. for this question after my request for things to write about. Chris' question was:
"Do you think the Dolphins will pass more aggressively and let down a little bit on the run game because of Brandon Marshall?"
I believe that yes, the Miami Dolphins will be more aggressive in the passing game this year. Brandon Marshall is too much of a threat to run the same type of offense as we did last year.
BUT, don't expect Chad Henne to be airing it out every time he passes. The Dolphins still have a very talented possession receivers like Davone Bess and Greg Camarillo. You can count on them getting a lot of catches along with Marshall, and Bess and Camarillo don't normally get very big gains when they catch the ball.
Also, you can still expect the Dolphins to run the ball pretty frequently. Miami has a bunch of talent at the running back position, and it would be a big waste to not use that talent.
So, while I would love to see the Dolphins to throw the ball long all of the time, I know it won't happen. Miami's offense is way too loaded to have to rely on just one person.
Be thankful that the Dolphins don't have to be excessively aggressive in just the passing game. When Miami is able to mix up different plays and use different players, it can keep defenses on their toes and enable the Dolphins to trick them and have big plays.
Thanks for the question Chris, and keep the questions coming everyone!
