    this is bottom line the biggest issue with the dolphins. we dont score enough points to win typically. the real reason is we dont possess the ball long enough to accumulate yards, we dont sustain drives. this goes back decades, but lets look at just gase's tenure:

    why have we only gone above 400 total yards of offense 6 times out of 38 total games?

    why have we converted half or better of our 3rd downs only 5 times out of 38 total games? there are some atrocious numbers in there.

    why have we had a greater time of possession than our opponent only 15 times out of 38 games (39%)?

    its not just tannehill and not just the o-line and not just gase. its everything. these are putrid stats, and the entire offense needs a rebuild, personnel wise and coaching.

    we have been very lucky to win as many games as we have, and i would argue our defense has been good to very good during gase's time relative to the rest of the nfl.

    I've found our offense to be offensive under his tenure.

    Upon further review of looking at the games Miami did have over 400 yards the following applies to each game:

    2016 - New England...279 yards occurred after Miami trailed 31-3 late in 3rd quarter and Pats went into prevent defense.
    2016 - Cleveland...78 yards occurred in OT against the eventual 1-15 Browns.
    2016 - Pittsburgh...Ajayi rushed for 204 yards
    2016 - Buffalo...Ajayi rushed for 214 yards
    2016 - Buffalo...Ajayi rushed for 206 yards, Matt Moore QB
    2017 - TB...Cutler pulled after throwing 3 picks, Miami trailed 20-7 at half and Moore got to sling the ball in failed comeback attempt

    So unless Miami is getting blown out, goes to OT against a horrendous team or we have a 200+ rusher Miami is going to be challenged moving the ball.

    Good thing his choice at DC is looking much better this year. I was very impressed by the D last week, this unit has the potential to be elite in a few years which Gase and the FO deserve massive credit for.

    Would love to know the percentage of drives that go along the lines of the following

    1st down, False start or holding,
    2nd down, run for minimal gain or loss when other teams get eight or nine yards against nickel or dime,
    3rd down screen pass short of sticks with the receiver having to beat two or three defenders for yards after catch.

    Or, % of drives killed by penalty, fumble, INT, sack. Not knowing the 'typical' NFL O, it seems Miami kills more of it's own drives than average.
    And, the O seldom looks in sync

    Adam, so basically, a Tannehill led Dolphin offense never exceeded 400 yards in a meaningful game? Man, that's not too good. I keep thinking, it's just about to get better........

    Adam Gase’s offense makes getting a first down look harder than neuroscience.

    Does anyone have statistics on offensive penalties?

    I feel we constantly shoot ourselves in the foot with false starts, holding etc. Totally kills drives and disrupts rhythm, throwing the D back out on the field and hampering our TOP.

    I know teams deal with it, but curious where we rank.

    In the 37 regular season games that Adam Gase has coached for Dolphins we are minus 246 plays compared to opposition.

    The other team gets almost 7 more plays per game under his tenure. Pitiful....

    Bet you it’s at least 2020 before it happens.
