    so can we assume that within 3 games Pounce and Al come back?
    Luckily we play the Rams and 49ers the next two.

    That Pouncey news sucks. Potentially 4 more games without him? A decision has to be made there soon, he's a great player, but he's never available to play anymore it seems. Same goes for Albert really. One needs to be replaced, you can't have 2 out of the 5 guys on your starting OL constantly injured.

    I agree. Pouncey just can't seem to overcome the hip injuries he has been suffering off and on for the last three years. This seems to be something that will probably shorten his career and the Dolphins need to look at bringing in a permanent replacement during the off season.

    Albert has only played 16 games during a season, once in his entire career. He misses at least 2-4 games every year. The Dolphins already have their LT for the future on their roster in Tunsil. So they can reduce their salary cap number by releasing Albert after this season and instead try to find a LG who can start on the OL next year.

    It would be great if the Dolphins could rely on the starting OL they have had the last month, but Albert and Pouncey just can't be counted on because of these reoccurring injuries.

    Injuries are obviously a part of the game. I think we can live with one guy who's talent is that good, but is a higher than normal risk for injury. However, two, that's just too hard to overcome IMO.

    Well.. we overcame it today. Actually we overcame 3 big injuries on the OL as Tunsil was injured too.

    The difference is coaching. We're finding ways to win now instead of ways to lose.

    I would never have believed that our defense could play as well as it has after the loss of Jones.
