Yes/No

My thing is poring over stats to evaluate the Dolphins. Like most Dolphins fans, no stats are needed to know how the team is playing. In short, they stink right now. The stat line is ugly and can cause the most ardent fan to despair. With that in mind, here's the lowdown from Pro Football Focus.

Players that pull their own weight:

Jarvis Landry
Lamar Miller
Mike Pouncey
Rishard Matthews

Ndamukong Suh
Cameron Wake
Reshad Jones
Derrick Shelby
Koa Misi
Brent Grimes
Michael Thomas
Bobby McCain

Special team:
Jarvis Landry
Andrew Franks
Walt Aikens
Michael Thomas
Kelvin Sheppard
Spencer Paysinger
Tony Lippett

Then, there are those who are a load:

Jamil Douglas
Jason Fox
Dallas Thomas
Billy Turner
Greg Jennings
Ju'Wuan James
Brandon Albert
Dion Sims
Damien Williams

Kelvin Sheppard
Jamar Taylor
Earl Mitchell
Walt Aikens
Brice McCain
Terence Fede
C.J. Mosley
Jordan Phillips
A.J. Francis

Special team:
John Denney
Matt Darr
Zack Vigil

Not surprising that the offensive line is, well, downright offensive! That's the root of the Dolphins troubles this season. They can't sustain drives, so the defense is forced into extra duty and gets worn out. But you all knew this! Commiserate with me as we fans embark on the second half of the season!

Well this team is as bad if not worse than last years, again the Dolphins are the laughing stock of the NFL, so highly touted coming into the season only to realize that again after the loss to the Eagles (I am writing his before the game) we will be out of the playoff picture once and for all. This is a reoccurring theme with this franchise, Ross really needs to clean house starting with the QB and all his coaches, enough of his knee jerk reaction, giving this QB a huge contract knowing he cannot throw the long ball, bad move MR Ross. As a life long Dolphin fan and always will be for that matter it is hard to get excited about the games anymore because I know what to expect, year after year I hope they prove me wrong....shame on me.
