Things aren’t getting easier for the Dolphins’ offensive line, which has had a hard time keeping quarterback Ryan Tannehill upright.
And if they don’t start working better together, they might not be working at all.
They’ve allowed 18 sacks so far, putting them on pace to give up 72. And with the Ravens bringing Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil this week, those numbers might be heading up.
“If we give up 72 sacks, I mean, everybody should be fired; I think the whole offensive line,” guard Richie Incognito said, via Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post. “That’s atrocious.”
“There comes a point in time as a competitor where you say, ‘This is enough.’ “And I think we’re getting to that breaking point. We’re sick of hearing about it. We’re sick of talking about it every week.”
With the move of second-year tackle Jonathan Martin to the left side, there were concerns about pass protection coming into the season. But the blame for the recent leaks is across the line, and not just the function of one guy getting beaten.
