Linebackers: Dannell Ellerbe, MIA (-3.9) and Donald Butler, SD (-3.1)

That kind of work in the run game, when Karlos Dansby is playing so well, won’t make Miami fans happy. With four missed tackles Butler is better than this.

Dishonorable Mention: Zach Brown (TEN) and Manti Te’o (SD)


Safeties: Troy Polamalu, PIT (-4.4) and Reed Doughty, WAS (-3.3)

As bad as we’ve seen Polamalu look for a very long time. Roughty wasn’t much better in earning negatives against the run and pass.

Dishonorable Mention: Michael Griffen (TEN) and Reshad Jones (MIA)

Maybe Coyle needs to simplify our defense based on Wheeler and Ellerbe's ability to grasp it.

Quote:
Inconsistent Ellerbe

After starting the season with four straight negative grades, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe put together three straight positives before posting a -2.1 last week and now a -3.9 effort on Sunday. His up and down season is not what the Dolphins had in mind when they paid him in free agency last offseason. Ellerbe graded at -4.6 in the running game as Chargers linemen had their way with him at the second level throughout the game. He was driven well out of the play when left guard Johnnie Troutman got a hold of him at the 5:56 mark of the first quarter while Fluker had it much easier with 0:51 to go in the second as he pounced on Ellerbe who tripped over himself in pursuit. He was simply slow to react and unable to shed blocks all afternoon, a dangerous combination for any linebacker.

And I gotta say it really is hard to read, because going into the season I had high hopes for Ellerbe, as I'm sure many did. He has had his moments though, no doubt, that show he is a great player but just like anything more pressure on the QB gets pressure off of him and Wheeler.
