Dolphins Solidify Offense with Rejuvenated Offensive Line, Bidding Farewell to “Scary Years”

MIAMI GARDENS — There’s honesty coming from the Dolphins now, the form of honesty they never would have shared publicly lately. Honesty that tells you whatever it was you were considering of their offensive line problems, they couldn’t help but be considering themselves.

When the Dolphins line up against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, it’s not only a matchup of 5-1 teams. It’s a matchup of strength vs. strength all around the field. Strength that features — hope you’re sitting down — the Eagles’ vaunted defensive front squaring off against Miami’s front five. Who says? The numbers do, by nearly any metric you care to make use of, whether the main focus is on protecting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa or opening holes for running back Raheem Mostert.

That’s the here and now. As any Dolphins fan knows, it can’t be appreciated with out a have a look at the “before” picture of the front five.

“The quote/unquote ‘scary years’ of offensive line play here,” right tackle Austin Jackson said.

No must dig deep into the memory bank to know what Jackson meant. It was only two seasons ago that the Dolphins conceded 40 sacks. Scary is what it will need to have been like for a quarterback attempting to operate under those conditions.

Now? The Dolphins haven’t allowed sacks in games.

“(Bleep), that’s pretty good, huh?” guard Rob Hunt said.
