Dolphins Address Pass Protection

TannehillsackedWhile most Dolphins fans were still buzzing about Sunday’s comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons, the Miami coaching staff spent Monday addressing continuing concerns and areas for improvement, not the least of which is pass protection.

The need to protect Ryan Tannehill is nothing new, but with Sunday’s five sacks allowed, the Dolphins have now allowed Tannehill to be sacked 14 times, tied for second-worst in the league. Coach Joe Philbin said Monday that there’s plenty of blame to go around.

“I think the offensive line actually pass blocked pretty well [Sunday],” Philbin said. “We had a couple sacks where the quarterback has to get rid of the ball. Our running back gave one up. We had a scheme error, and we gave up a sack.
