The test for our starting offensive line this week is immense. Wade Philips has the personnel to flat-out beat most team's "good" offensive lines. We are average so far this preseason... but getting better. If we have a minor setback this week, Dolphin Nation should take it in stride.
In my opinion, Seattle, San Fransisco, Houston and Miami have the 4 best Front 7s in the NFL. And, our O-Line gets routinely beat by our Defense. That 3-4/5-2 when running all of its crosses and floating DTs and LBs is as formidable as there is in football. Sad to say, our O-Line is not playing at full strength. However, I do expect to see a better result than in the Dallas game. Jacksonville was not a stern test and we still had issues protecting Ryan Tannehill (some of which were his fault for holding the ball about a half second too long).
If the Miami Dolphins' O-Lines holds-up well against this Front 7, we are over the hump. We will be a force this year.
Our Defense is going to be special, so our offense simply needs to contribute about 18 points a game for us to have a double digit win season. I believe they will.
