It's been nearly the definition of a "bend but don't break" defense as takeaways and red zone defense have been stout. Still, it isn't good enough when we are nearly the worst team against the run and are allow teams to run all the way to the red zone with little resistance. If Gase does not address the DC position in the offseason it will be his undoing.

The Dolphins are 29th in the NFL in total defense and 20th in the league in scoring defense, so it figures defensive coordinator Matt Burke is under some pressure.

The Dolphins are 30th in the NFL against the run and 20th in the league against the pass.

Miami has not had many sacks (29th) or third-down stops (25th). But the Dolphins have been quite good in the areas of takeaways (3rd) and red zone defense (16th).

The Dolphins defense has given up 72 explosive plays. Only Kansas City (77) and Tampa Bay (76) have more. That means on average of six times a game the opponent is gaining “chunk” yards.

Is it a coordinator problem or a talent problem. Could be some of both but little talent and injuries are a bigger concern imo.
