Dolphins focus must shift to the Buccaneers

In the NFL, the difference between a win and a loss often comes down to who wants it more.

For this reason, the Miami Dolphins must have their heads on straight this week.  The team is without two starting offensive linemen and is being bombarded with questions and speculation about who is to blame and what needs to be done.

I will use a very cheesy transition to help Miami Dolphins fans focus on the most important Miami Dolphins story line of the week.

It would be irresponsible for the Miami Dolphins to show up at Raymond James Stadium expecting to bully the winless Buccaneers.  Tampa Bay is hungry for their first win and have every reason to believe that they can make the Miami Dolphins their first victim.

The Buccaneers have outperformed Miami in rushing yards gained and allowed, as well as passing yards allowed.  Miami holds only a slight edge in passing yards per game, 217.6 to 209.6, when you disregard the the Josh Freeman era and look at their present reality with Mike Glennon at the helm.

In five games, the rookie has outperformed Ryan Tannehill by doing a better job of avoiding negative plays.  (continued on page 2, CLICK HERE)
