Miami Dolphins nose tackle Jason Ferguson is 6-foot-3 and 305 pounds. He was a shot putter on his high school track and field team, not a sprinter.

But the new Wildcat offense the Dolphins have implemented has Ferguson thinking big.

"I hope we didn't put all of that in for that one game," Ferguson told Andy Kent of MiamiDolphins.com. "We need to pull some of that back."

The Dolphins on Sunday trounced the New England Patriots, 38-13. Ronnie Brown took direct shotgun snaps with Ricky Williams as the motion wingback and Chad Pennington split wide. Brown scored four running touchdowns and threw for another.

"I think we're going to throw a new wrinkle in there," Ferguson said. "I think Ronnie and Ricky will do their same thing, and I'm going to go out there at split end and run a long drag route. It's going to be real long because I know my abilities. I'll just be waiting on the ball hoping that I'll be open for that."
