Roster depth of the Miami Dolphins is a continued issue for the team
By Sean Moon
The Miami Dolphins loss on Sunday had a lot to do with the lack of depth they have on the roster. It’s a concerning problem for the team.
The lackluster offense is once again at the forefront of the Miami Dolphins. Some argue it’s the play calling, some argue it’s the quarterback play and yet some argue it’s the offensive line injuries. The offensive line was revamp through free agency with Josh Sitton and Daniel Kilgore, but the problem there is both were known for injuries and no one bother to upgrade the reserves.
The drop off in talent between the starters and reserves is night and day. When Laremy Tunsil went out with a concussion, he was replaced at left tackle with Sam Young, and he was not good, he actually was pretty bad. He is a professional football player and his role is to be ready to step in and play like one, well he was not prepared and it showed.
It’s hard to play a game when your trying to pace yourself because your depth is so bad you not going get a rotation to catch your breath. This is why so many defensive players are out with injury, it’s just to many reps for a defensive player and its taking a toll.
The Miami Dolphins better start to figure out how to upgrade its entire team, from starters to reserves and it needs to start happening sooner rather than later, or your going to wear out and waste what looks to be a great young defense for the near future.
Young player development and better background checks as to the fit of your players, because I just don’t understand why you draft a guy if the coach don’t like a players play, his attitude or how he speaks to their teammates. Wasted talent and draft picks just keep you thin and weak and you cannot achieve consistency or bounce back from injuries without success with your depth.
