Kris Kocurek’s vision to stop the run by committee has not been realized in losses to the Buccaneers and Panthers.
The Dolphins have allowed an average of 149.5 yards per game on the ground – and 5.1 per carry. Those figures ranked last and 28th in the league, respectively, after Friday’s games.

This is only the 2nd game of preason so this stat it is limited by a lot of things. Last year the Phins were 14th against the run allowing 110.5 yds per game in the regular season. Last year preseason Phins were 26th against the run allowing 124.2 per game. .


As a frame of reference of the teams that finished in the top 10 preseason run D last year 3 of them finished in the top 10 regular season run D. The top D against the run in the regular season did not finish in the top 10 run D preseason last year.

I am not saying it is not a concern but trying to say there is hope it can be better.

The offense needs to do it's part..A team that is playing from behind because of a lack of scoring is gonna give up more rushing yards.

A 26th ranked offense isn't doing the defense any favors. Especially this defense that's built around the pass rushing.
