Dolphins defense is playing respectable
The Dolphins have not been healthy on defense this season. I'm most disappointed in that our rookie corners have not been healthy enough to get on the field more as we'll need more from them next year when we lose Grimes.

The Dolphins rank eighth in total defense and 17th in scoring defense (thanks to the Saints). Respectable, considering time missed by DE Cam Wake, CB Dimitri Patterson (who still leads the team with two INTs) and DT Paul Soliai, among others. And don’t forget that two high draft picks at corner, Jamar Taylor and Will Davis, are being eased in because of injury. No, the front seven hasn’t been as stout as expected, and yes, there have been too many missed tackles, but it’s not unreasonable to expect improvement.
