Adam Gase says the Miami Dolphins' run defense will be better than las

The preseason says otherwise.Miami has allowed 299 yards rushing in the first two exhibition games. That includes 226 yards Friday at Carolina Kiko Alonso Jersey , and 71 on one play — a touchdown run by Christian McCaffrey on the second snap of the night.The leaky ground defense is especially worrisome because the same problem contributed greatly to a 6-10 finish in 2017. The Dolphins gave up over 170 yards rushing three times during a five-game losing streak that sent the season south.Despite evidence to the contrary, Gase says his run defense is improved."I can see how it's starting to come together," he said Sunday."Clean up some of the mistakes, and we'll be all right," middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan said.The front seven is still adjusting to the loss of five-time Pro Bowl tackle Ndamukong Suh, who was cut when his enormous contract became too burdensome. Last week the Dolphins signaled they're struggling to replace Suh when they signed veteran Kendall Langford, who had been out of the NFL since early November.Langford was rushed into action at Carolina. He played 18 snaps, made no assignment mistakes and is in excellent shape, Gase said.Langford joins a group of tackles that also includes veteran newcomer Akeem Spence, perennial underachiever Jordan Phillips and two players taken on the final day of the 2017 draft, Davon Godchaux and Vincent Taylor. New defensive line coach Kris Kocurek plans a heavy rotation to keep everyone fresh.The defensive lineman making the biggest impact so far is former Pro Bowl end Robert Quinn, an offseason acquisition who had two sacks at Carolina. He had 19 sacks with the Rams in 2013."Hopefully I can get back to those good numbers," Quinn said. "That's kind of my mindset — to break records and do something extreme."Overall, Gase said http://www.dolphinscheapshops.com/cheap … ola-jersey , the remaking of the front four is on schedule."I like where our d-line is," the coach said. "We've just got to make sure we do a better job of fitting the runs right, but they're attacking."There are fresh faces at linebacker, too, and both are youngsters from Ohio State. McMillan is starting in the middle after missing all of his rookie season in 2017 because of a knee injury. Rookie Jerome Baker, a third-round pick, is the front-runner to start on the outside opposite veteran Kiko Alonso.McMillan and Baker are two big reasons Gase remains optimistic about the direction of the run defense."We'll get those guys up to speed," Gase said. "They'll be doing it right once we hit the first week. We have athletic guys in that second level. We'll give them opportunities to make plays, and they'll make them."McMillan and Baker were nowhere to be found on McCaffrey's long run, however, and defensive backs Bobby McCain and T.J. McDonald took bad angles."We had two guys get too aggressive in the secondary," Gase said.Such mistakes are correctable, the coach said. He has less than three weeks to fix them.Ryan Tannehill’s Finest Hour It has taken six seasons, one of which he didn’t even play in http://www.dolphinscheapshops.com/cheap … vis-jersey , but Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has finally assumed his place in the upper echelon of QBs in the National Football League. Three games into the 2018 regular season, Tannehill is ranked fourth among all quarterbacks, in terms of the all important QB rating, and just last weekend, he brought the Dolphins back from a fourth quarter deficit to beat the Oakland Raiders, in a game Miami probably had no business winning.Cynics can point out that two of his three touchdown passes in that game traveled no more than three feet in the air before his teammates ran them in for scores, but people can say what they want; they still count as touchdown passes, and even without them, his rating would still be well North of a hundred. What’s more, Tannehill has become even more of a leader, on and off the field this year, which is saying something. Charged with the unenviable task of turning around a moribund franchise when he arrived as a first round pick in 2012, his career has not been without its bumps along the way. Heck, prior to the 2012 draft Cheap Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey , I wanted Miami to take Brandon Weeden. Weeden, who will be 35 next month, hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2015. Having had to deal with a new offensive coordinator virtually every year until recently, he’s done pretty much everything his team has asked of him, dating back to his years at Texas A&M. It has to have been a strange journey for Tannehill. His college coach, Mike Sherman, who would later become his OC with the Dolphins, saw fit to elevate one Jerrod Johnson to A&M’s starting quarterback, over Tannehill, in 2009. For the record, Johnson has never played in an NFL regular season game, nor even been listed on an NFL team’s 53 man roster. During his early years with the Dolphins, Ryan was known primarily for two things: being the NFL’s most sacked QB and for being the league’s most coddled quarterback. In 2013, the team allowed starting corner Sean Smith Cheap Cameron Wake Jersey , a second round pick in 2009 and reliable starter at the position, to leave in free agency, so that they could sign WR Brian Hartline to a lucrative contract extension. Smith would go on to play five more NFL seasons with Kansas City and Oakland while Hartline would last only two more years in Miami, despite signing a five year deal, with 2.5 million in guaranteed money. Also in 2013, the Dolphins signed former Pittsburgh WR Mike Wallace to a five year, sixty million dollar deal. Wallace would last only two years with the Dolphins. In the 2014, ‘15 and ‘16 drafts, the Dolphins became the only team in NFL history to spend a first, a second, three thirds and a fourth round pick on wide receivers in a three year period.Fast forward to the present day. With mostly late round draft picks and relatively inexpensive free agents, the Dolphins suddenly have one of the most feared passing attacks in the league, and Tannehill is obviously a major reason why. Always careful with the football, he has taken his game to a new level thus far this season http://www.dolphinscheapshops.com/cheap … ain-jersey , which is even more remarkable when you consider that he hadn’t played in a regular season game since December 2016, until three weeks ago. Regardless of the controversy he has been at the center of in Miami in years past, there is little argument as to his value to the Dolphins today. The two best things that have ever happened to him may have been turning thirty, and no longer being viewed as a guy who has to be the savior of the franchise. With an improved defense and running game, Ryan Tannehill is making a very strong case for being the quarterback of this team for the foreseeable future. I’m glad he’s finally having some real success on the field, because, as an all around good guy, he’s someone we should all want to root for. It’s an exciting time to be a Dolphin fan.
