Maybe starting a rookie quarterback with 19 collegiate starts will prove to be the right move in the long run, but for now, it’s really stifling their offense, especially with no one at the wide receiver position who can create separation. Tannehill’s 20 for 36 for 219 yards and 3 interception performance is going to be pretty common for him this season and while they have talent defensively, there’s only so long a defense can hold them if the offense can’t stay on the field. Eventually they get worn down and give up plays. You saw it this weekend. You simply can’t consistently win games in the NFL if one of your units is playing as poorly as the Dolphins’ offense figures to play this season. You need some balance.
