I found this on the Miami Dolphin homepage. I was kind of pleasantly surprised. No, they aren't the greatest numbers, but overall, it gives me some hope. I know this is only 3 weeks of data, but considering where we've come from, I think they are pretty good. We have been staying pretty close with the opposition as far as the numbers go. I don't like all the penalty yards, and the 3rd down conversions could come up a bit. But look at some of the other areas like "avg yds per play" and compare that to last year. I don't have those numbers (Left, I'm sure they're on your desk somewhere), but I bet they're better.
I was just a little surprised looking over these and thought I'd share if you haven't noticed them yourselves.

Sorry, didn't get the columns titled. Miami is on the left, opposition on the right.
