Barry Jackson wrote:Per PFF, the final passer ratings against Dolphins safeties were 120.9 vs. Reshad Jones, 112.3 vs. T.J.McDonald and 155.8 vs. Nate Allen. Michael Thomas was fine in pass coverage (52.9 rating against).

...

Not a single Dolphins linebacker allowed a passer rating of below 100 in his coverage area.

The rating was 118 against Kiko Alonso, 112.9 against Lawrence Timmons, 106 against Stephone Anthony, 106.3 against Mike Hull and 104.2 against Chase Allen.

Per PFF, 78 of the 92 passes thrown against Alonso were caught for 814 yards, the most against any NFL linebacker in pass coverage (by a margin of 212 yards).

...

The Dolphins’ final offensive numbers were thoroughly gruesome: last in third-down conversions, 28th in points per game, 25th in yards per game, 29th in rushing yards per game, 24th in passing yards per game, 30th in percentage of passes intercepted, 25th in first downs per game.

They were above average in only two categories: sacks allowed per pass play (10th), and seventh in field goal percentage, with Cody Parker finishing 21 for 23.

But the coaches and players will tell you that everything's OK, and we're close.

So glad that Gase threw $10 million at his boy toy Jay Cutler to lead us to those stellar offensive numbers. And now with Gase's BFF Loggains on board to get his coffee and tell him how awesome he is, we should be in for another great offensive season in '18. Yay! Embarassed

You forgot a couple.

The 2017 Fins set a franchise record...for fewest takeways in a season.

This season's Fins were outscored by significantly more than the 6-10 team of two seasons ago.

Remember Dion Jordan? Not only did he have more sacks than Harris this season, he had more than his entire career as a Fin.

Also, it's a certainty that a former Fin will get a ring this season (even though some of those guys really shouldn't count). You know, just to rub it in our faces even more.
