With a key third preseason game coming tonight against the Dolphins, we turned to Kevin Nogle of The Phinsider fame for all the answers to our burning, itchy questions about Miami's franchise. Find his answers below.
Kevin Nogle: I think this is a playoff team - and it better be or else Joe Philbin may find himself looking for a new job. I don't know that they necessarily dethrone the New England Patriots atop the AFC East, but they should be in Wildcard contention all year. I think they can get to 10-6, but would be happy at 9-7 on the season.
As for this game, just coming out of it without any more injuries would be nice. The key takeway I want to see is how the offensive line continues to gel, and if guard Billy Turner can bounce back from some struggles last week. The line is already a concern, then add in a questionable status for backup left tackle Jason Fox (who has been starting in the absence of Branden Albert who likely will not play as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL last year) and it could be dicey for Tannehill. Fox suffered a concussion last week, so it is all a matter of whether or not he can clear the concussion protocol - and if Miami wants to rush him back out there. If he does not play, Dallas Thomas will likely move to left tackle from right guard, and rookie Jamil Douglas will slide into the starting right guard position. It is not ideal - and could lead to some interesting moments for Tannehill - but the Dolphins will do what they have to until Albert or Fox are ready to play.
