During the summer, Dolphins players spoke of fielding an offense that would wear down opponents and play at a faster pace.

The pace has improved, but the results haven’t. And so 10 games into 2012, the Dolphins have averaged fewer points per game (18.7, 26th in the league) than they did last season (20.6).

After a two-day break, the Dolphins returned to work Monday, hoping to fix an offense that has slipped to 29th in yards and produced just one touchdown in its past 30 possessions.

Well, the early complaint about Tannehill by some here was the dearth of TD passes. Any bets that this will continue to correlate with Miami's W-L from here on out?

no matter who the RB is, they’re not going to make any yards behind this o-line.

until Miami replace Long, Incognito and Jerry and finds guys who are athletic enough to run the new scheme, it won’t matter who the RB is.

But it will to a degree if you mix up play calling (not run a run play every first down), and design plays running to the outside, screen plays etc.

I think it's a mistake not to use Egnew now. If he can't block,don't ask him to block. Clay is just not performing.

Completely agree. Clay isn't a great blocker (far from it) either, so it's not like we're losing much in that area by playing Egnew. I just don't see why the coaches can't add a couple of plays for Egnew to run, just to get him some action and see what he can do.

From what I know, Egnew's problem is that he can't grasp the offense and what his assignments are as well as some blocking issues.

If they drafted Clay to block in this offense, then they made a huge mistake from the get go. If they want him to be out there blocking, it's because our line sucks. I say just have a couple tackles report eligible and forget your blocking TEs. You're not fooling anybody just because a guy wears an 80 number. They know they're in there to block. Line up with four tackles and blow them the hell off the ball.
