In what grades as a zero on the 0-10 scale of surprise level, the Miami Dolphins had the 31st best (second worst) offensive line in the NFL this season, according to Pro Football Focus, ahead of only the San Diego Chargers.
They didn’t fare much better with Football Outsiders, where they ranked 28th.
Ryan Tannehill was not great by any means this year but he was sacked 45 times, hit countless others, and his coaches refused to commit to the running game, putting him in a perpetual 3rd and long behind one of the worst offensive lines the planet has ever seen.
Miami’s offensive offensive line breakdown:
Pass Blocking: 29th
Run Blocking: 32nd
Penalties Rank: 25th
Trotting out a group featuring heavy does of Dallas Thomas, Billy Turner, Jamil Douglas, and Jason Fox will naturally have that affect. But according to Mike Tannenbaum, the Dolphins liked what they had at guard entering what became a vile season.
Last year’s ranking? 32nd. Cheers to improvement…
