The Dolphins would like to see Reggie Bush on the field 70-75 percent of the time and rookie running back Daniel Thomas 25-30 percent of the time. “I don’t know how the games are going to go so that dictates touches,” Sparano told Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
“But from our end, in a perfect world, I wouldn’t mind it being somewhere around 70-30. Somewhere to that effect, where Reggie’s ability on third down is a factor and we get Daniel going a little bit. And then at the end of the game we see which one has a hot hand.” “Obviously I didn’t take Reggie out of the game last game,” Sparano said.
“So in a perfect situation, 70-75 percent of the time you keep Reggie in there. You use somebody else 25 percent of the time early on in this thing until you grow him a little bit and see how they handle this. That would be good for Reg.”
