Ryan Tannehill and Adam Gase should not be blamed if, or when, all hell breaks loose with the Miami Dolphins this season.
The roster has proven to have an extreme talent disparity.
Despite having three first-round picks on their offensive line, even if we don’t count Mike Pouncey, who’s shockingly injured, and the team’s big uglies are, well, ugly from a production standpoint.
Through three weeks, here’s how their main five fares on a league-wide scale at their respective positions (note: tackles and guards are not separated by side), according to Pro Football Focus:
Brandon Albert: 36th offensive tackle
Laremy Tunsil: 31st offensive guard
Anthony Steen: 27th center
Jermon Bushrod: 48th offensive guard
Ja’Wuan James: 40th offensive tackle
That’s average to poor across the board.
None of Miami’s corners rank among the top 69 players at the position.
Only five players on their entire offense and defense grade out as above average: Ryan Tannehill (No. 12 quarterback), Jarvis Landry (No. 6 receiver), Ndamukong Suh (No. 2 receiver), Cam Wake (No. 12 edge defender), and Reshad Jones (No. 8 safety).
Meanwhile, the play of a whopping 11 players has been deemed below average to poor. It’s going to be a longgg season, y’all.
