Maybe Dolphins CBs aren't that bad

Here's another article from espn.com (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/insider/columns/story?columnist=joyner_kc&id=3425488), this time by KC "The Football Scientist" Joyner. In the article, Joyner uses his statistics to find the best CB tandems in the league using Yards Per Attempt (YPA) on the two CBs who started 8 or more games. Suprisingly, the Fins' Will Allen and Michael Lehan are tied for fourth! That is far above Dre Bly/Champ Bailey and many other great CB duos.

I know some of you may be thinking, "Well the Dolphins run defense was so bad that opposing teams didn't have to throw much." But this is yards per attempt, not total yards. If anything, this stat is more impressive because you would have to assume the CBs didn't have as much safety help as the safeties had to help out more on the run.

Too bad Lehan just got hurt... Let's hope it's not too serious.
