The Dolphins lost to the Tampa Bay Bucs Saturday night. Not a big deal.
The Miami offensive line was terrible. That is a big deal.
The line was equally stinky at run-blocking and pass protecting, if results are the measure. The Dolphins rushed 17 times for 22 yards -- a 1.3 yard per rush average. The Dolphins did not pick up even one first down rushing. Not one.
Pass blocking? Chad Henne, working behind the first-team offensive line, was sacked three times. He was pressure on several of his 13 attempts. Right tackle Marc Colombo yielded a sack to Dakota Watson and another to Michael Bennett.
Dolphins coach Tony Sparano called the performance, "not good enough."
Sparano was very complimentary of quarterback Chad Henne. I write in my column that Henne has improved to the point he is not the biggest worry on Miami's radar right now. Amazingly.
What follows is the rest of his post-game press conference.
