  • Dolphins’ Offensive Line Ranked 30th

    While I typically don't pay much attention to Pro Football Focus, their current rankings of our O-Line seem pretty accurate.
    Despite THREE former 1st rounders on the Line, we are still one of the worst units in the game! I don't expect miracles from Campbell, especially with the chickensh*t that he was given to make chicken salad from, in SHORT order!
    We've had "OL experts" as Head Coach ever since the year after the 1-15 debacle. This is the EIGHTH season since that time, and we still can't protect the QB or make running lanes. Granted the RB's and the QB have NOT helped the line, but neither has the coaching. Allowing Tannehill to stand in the pocket like a statue, kills drives, and destroys morale!
    Midway through the 2015 season, PFF ranks us:

    27th Pass blocking

    30th Run blocking

    T-8th Penalties

    Maybe applying Coach Campbell's foot to some butts will do what NEEDS to be done...

      What makes this even worse is that we have invested 2 of our own first round picks, Pouncey and James. A high priced free agent who was a former first round pick himself, Albert and a couple of 3rd round picks Thomas and Turner.

      I bet most teams only have 1 or maybe 2 former first round picks and several former mid to late round draft picks starting on their o-lines. Which means we do less with more. The Patriots were starting a couple of rookie 4th round picks and an undrafted rookie on their o-line and they do better than us. They could probably assemble a unit of 5 undrafted rookies to start on their o-line and they would perform better than our o-line.

      To be fair I do believe that Tannehill a lot of times makes our o-line look worse than it really is because of his lack of pocket awareness.

          You forgot about..................."Yeah, it was a GREAT idea to use our 1st and 3rd round picks on wide receivers who rarely make it on to the football field while the o-line can't block for sh*t!"

            I wasn't really mad about getting Suh, or the receivers, I was FURIOUS about not getting a real O-Line coach!

              PFF does not grade the OL as a whole but, takes their individual grades of everyone who takes a snap on the OL and then averages them out for a total OL grade. I believe the individual grades are more accurate than the whole. What are the grades and ranks of our other guys on the OL?

              From what I have seen, center is the only position which has lived up to and exceeded my expectations. OG's (all 3) has been disappointing with little or no experience with "a few" good things I saw in a couple of games. Albert was bad at the start but showing some of his old self, overall nothing more than average if that. James has not impressed me, especially on the run. I saw him as below average. I do not like Fox at all and he has played down to my thinking.

              Curious as to how the FA's and picks we did not take are playing?

                I cancelled PFF after using them since they started 6 years ago. They now have 19 NFL teams using them, which adds credibility to what they have been doing. However, the NFL did not want fans to have the same stuff given to them and PFF cut most of the good things provided to those who were responsible to getting them started. Makes sense from a business standpoint but, SUCKS for those who used them for years.

                  Well the Texans and Titans game showed how our O-line should be. At least from a running game stand point.

                    That is defiantly part of the problem. I thought Benton did well for his last team (Texans?) but in Miami he has been terrible.
