It’s back to the drawing board for Adam Gase and the Miami Dolphins after their season ended with a thud. One year after winning 10 games and ending a 7-year playoff drought, the Fins are back on the outside looking in. There were many issues that caused the Dolphins to regress this season, but the most glaring was the loss of Ryan Tannehill during training camp.
Gase was reunited with Jay Cutler after the two had a breakthrough in their last year together in Chicago, but it wasn’t enough to get the Fins back to the postseason and they’ve reached the playoffs just twice in the past 16 seasons. It’s easy to say the inconsistent play of Cutler was the reason why the Fins faltered, but there’s much more to the story. The team was top-heavy at every position and lacked the depth once the injuries started to hit. The numerous off-field issues were likely a distraction, too, even though Gase said otherwise.
The run game was a non-factor all season and prompted the trade of Jay Ajayi at the deadline. It seemed like a puzzling move at the time, but the deal allowed Kenyan Drake to take over and prove his worth as a key player moving into next season. Drake had just 42 carries through the first 11 games, but after being elevated to the No. 1 spot, he produced 369 yards in the last four games and scored all three rushing touchdowns by a back. Cutler likely won’t return in 2018 after he inked a one-year deal following Tannehill’s injury. David Fales got a good look in the finale to see if he’s an option for a backup spot heading into next season.
