Miami morning take: Stopping sacks

October, 3, 2013
Here are the latest Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the Web:
  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel writes about Dolphins guard Richie Incognito, who is unhappy about the team’s pass protection.
Morning take: According to Incognito, if the Dolphins allow 72 sacks this season the entire offensive line should be fired. Miami has allowed 18 so far and is on that torrid pace.
  • Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald says questions still remain with Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Morning take: Tannehill is 10-10 after 20 starts. There are things in his game he still needs to work on, such as ball security, but I like most of what I see in fewer than two seasons.
  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post explores the tailback debate between Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller.
Morning take: Miami’s coaching staff has raved about Thomas since training camp. But he’s averaging 2.8 yards per carry this year, and I think it’s time to make Miller more of a feature tailback.
Morning take: Miami is the only team Spitler’s played for in four seasons. The Dolphins need a boost on special teams with linebacker Jason Trusnik and Don Jones both nursing injuries.
