    Progression or Regression? Dolphins O-line

    Trench warfare isn't pretty, but it often decides which team wins on Sunday because a stout line can protect for it's quarterback, and opens running lanes for the tailbacks. The Dolphins lost plenty of those trench battles last season, and it cost former offensive line coach Mike Maser his job.

    The Dolphins struggled running between tackle so much the coaches implemented the Wildcat offense out of necessity, and the gimmicky run-oriented scheme fueled the running game, which averaged 4.2 yards per carry, 118.6 yards per game, and produced 18 touchdowns in 2008.

    That was good enough for 11th best in the NFL last season (sounds great right?),but it was smoke and mirrors because the offense couldn't run the ball consistently when they needed to. And in the six losses this team had Pennington was under a significant amount of pressure (can anyone say Baltimore).

    Thanks for the link. The OLine is an interesting point of our game. If no injuries occur, we can have a really good one. If the injury bug hits us again, we'll be in trouble
