Miami morning take: Where's the run game?

October, 8, 2013
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the web:
  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel writes about the Dolphins' disappearing running game.
Morning take: The Dolphins are 27th in rushing and have been near the bottom of the league all season. Miami’s offense can’t run and can’t protect the passer, which are major problems.
  • Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have applied to host the Super Bowl in 2018.
Morning take: The Dolphins failed to get stadium upgrades earlier this year, which most likely means major events like the Super Bowl are out for the time being. But credit owner Stephen Ross for trying to get a Super Bowl in Miami anyway.
  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes about the controversy involving the spike in the final minute of the Dolphins’ loss to the Ravens.
Morning take: I didn’t have a problem with Ryan Tannehill’s first-down spike, because Miami was in field goal range and didn’t have any timeouts. It was the third-down sack that killed Miami’s chances, not the spike.
Morning take: Tannehill currently is the NFL’s most-sacked quarterback with 24. If that pace continues, there is a good chance Tannehill won’t last all 16 games.
