It would be a federal crime if the same unit of Eichenberg, Jackson, Mancz, Hunt, and Davis was trotted out there against the Ravens. Like I said earlier and I wasn’t exaggerating, the Miami Dolphins currently have three of the worst offensive lineman in the league in terms of allowing the most quarterback pressures. There’s a ton you can say about sites like Pro Football Focus and the kind of wizardry they come up with to formulate their player grades. I’m not that big into using them because I feel you can come up with any kind of number you want for any circumstance if you really want to. But these numbers are facts. These numbers aren’t the kind of numbers that you have to squint to see them.
Jackson, Eichenberg, and Davis are tied with 37 for the most quarterback pressures allowed in the league. It’s almost impressive that the Dolphins can have three of the worst lineman in the league out of five potential starting linemen. I almost want to see Hunt and Mancz get there as well just so we can have the ultimate terrible offensive line.
This all being said and that when we use our actual eyes we can plainly see that most of these guys, particularly, Jackson and Davis, are not starting or even journeymen offensive linemen need, to be replaced by anyone. How about trying out Greg Little who they traded for earlier in the year? Maybe give Robert Jones a chance to see what he can do. Can’t be worse right? Perhaps Austin Reiter should get another shot. Something needs to happen and even Brian Flores might be on board with that. Yesterday, Brian Flores had this to say about the potential of changes upfront;
"“Definitely a lot of conversation there,” Flores said. “We had a walk-through yesterday. We’ll have a walk-through today. Tomorrow, we’ll have a little bit more pace. We’ve had some conversations about moving some guys around. No final decisions yet, but definitely conversations being had.”"
Sign me up for changes and let’s see if anything turns out different. If nothing changes, well okay then. At least you tried to do something different. The fact that they all seemingly are bad, well that’s a different conversation.
