The Miami Dolphins arrived at their bye we

Post by panxing18 » Mon Apr 01, 2019 4:56 pm

ek a .500 team Dan Marino Jersey , which is no surprise because for the past quarter century they’ve been a .500 franchise.Their record since 1994: 197-197. Their record this year: 5-5. Coach Adam Gase’s three-year record: 21-21.If there’s a middle of the pack, the Dolphins are in the middle of it. They haven’t won a playoff game since 2000, but they could well be headed for their third 8-8 finish in the past six years.“These are tough times to be a Dolphin fan,” tweeted their former fullback, Pro Football Hall of Famer Larry Csonka. “Very frustrating. Shabby football.”Far from perfect, for sure. Given the way the season has gone, it’s amazing the Dolphins can still talk with a straight face about making the playoffs.They’ve been decimated by injuries, including the loss of quarterback Ryan Tannehill for the past five games. They’ve been outgained by 787 yards, third-worst in the league, and outscored by 57 points. They rank 28th in offense and 26th in defense.More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins, veteran LB Mike Hull agree to terms on 1-year contractThe next stop: Ryan Fitzpatrick moves into starting QB role with Dolphins, for nowDolphins sign former Jaguars guard-center Chris ReedDolphins sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to two-year Bob Griese Jersey , $11 million dealEnd of the road: Dolphins trade QB Ryan Tannehill to Titans for picksYet they began the week with the eighth-best record in the AFC, while eight teams had worse records.In sum: more Miami mediocrity.“We are in a good position,” running back Frank Gore said with a straight face. “We just need to stay as one, believe in each other, believe in our coaching staff and try to get the next one.”The next one will be Nov. 25 at Indianapolis, with Tannehill hoping to return from his throwing shoulder injury, although that may be a long shot.Only two of the six remaining games are against teams with winning records. So it’s not impossible for Miami to actually make the playoffs for only the third time in the past 17 seasons.“There are certain teams that have kind of separated themselves from the rest of the pack,” Gase said. “But right now, the only thing that’s really been eliminated for us is an undefeated season. Everything else is on the table. Other teams are having a lot of the same issues we are, and it’s really who can pull it together these last six games and find a way to get in.”A bye week may not be enough time to resolve the Dolphins’ many issues, however. That could take an offseason or three.For starters, the Dolphins are on pace to allow the most yards in franchise history. Their run defense ranks last in the league and seems to be getting worse Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey , with 174 yards allowed per game and 5.9 per carry over the past five weeks. Defensive dysfunction is such that two-time Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones took himself out of a game because he was unhappy with a plan to rotate personnel.And then there’s the offense, which has gone nine quarters without a touchdown. In the past three games receiver Danny Amendola has thrown for more scores (one) than quarterback Brock Osweiler (none).“This football team deserves touchdowns,” Osweiler said.Osweiler has been critical of his play as Tannehill’s replacement, and he’s not alone. But bad luck has been an offensive culprit, too. The Dolphins lost their most dynamic player, receiver Albert Wilson, and two starting offensive linemen to season-ending injuries, and three other injured linemen sat out last week’s loss at Green Bay.Bad health is less of an excuse on defense, where Gase’s decision to jettison tackles Ndamukong Suh and Jordan Phillips left holes that haven’t been filled. Yawning run gaps and blown coverage are staples, calling into question the future of second-year coordinator Matt Burke.That’s a topic for the offseason, along with the future of Tannehill. First the Dolphins will try to summon a late-season surge, which would be something new.Over the past decade Kenny Stills Jersey , their record in December is 22-22.
