ESPN Has The Dolphins As One Of The League’s Worse Pass Blocking Teams

Not good at all...

After losing what felt like the closest 35-0 loss in NFL history, the Dolphins have entered a seemingly bleak scenario where Tua Tagovailoa is out for the foreseeable future thanks to fractured ribs. Jacoby Brissett is a capable backup, but there’s just one problem.

The offensive line has been terrible to start the year. In 2020 the line wasn’t perfect, but it only gave up 34 sacks and 82 quarterback hits (the averages in...

These last few days have been tough being a Miami Dolphins fan.

The team laid an egg (again) vs. the Buffalo Bills, and we lost our starting quarterback to ‘BRuISEd rIBs’ for a few weeks more than we would have liked. And then there’s the realization that Chris Grier has not been perfect. The offensive line is still in shambles, and there’s plenty of decisions EVERYONE would have made differently over the last three or four years.

Miami Dolphins rule out Tua Tagovailoa for Sunday’s game.

Phinsider Radio show notes for Sept. 22, 2021.

Brian Flores ruled Tua Tagovailoa OUT for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. “He’s in a lot of pain. We got some initial diagnoses and decided to run some more tests and ran them and got some information. It’s unfortunate but not something we think - I don’t want to put a timetable on it. He’s better...

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

Tua Tagovailoa will miss this Sunday’s game against the Raiders as Brian Flores declared him out with fractured ribs.

On Wednesday, head coach Brian Flores told the media Tagovailoa has fractured ribs and will not play this weekend.

Flores stated that Miami’s 2020 first-round pick has been ruled out of Sunday’s Week 3 game at the Las Vegas Raiders after additional tests revealed Tagovailoa had sustained fractured ribs last week.

FILM | Dolphins need to continue to get Jaylen Waddle more involved in passing attack

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Waddle has 10 catches for 101 yards and a touchdown over his first two NFL games.

When your franchise quarterback goes down to a blindside hit because your starting right tackle (and captain) completely whiffs, the result will always be the same. That result: A. BIG. FAT. LOSS—and that's precisely what happened on Sunday when the Dolphins lost mercifully to the Bills, 35-0.

Worst of all, the offense scored zero points.

None.

Nadda.

After that atrocious performance against the Bills, it should surprise no one that none of the starters are safe on this offensive line.
