Dolphins season in one word

The Miami Dolphins are preparing to face the Green Bay Packers this Sunday. Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk wants to know what one word describes the team through the first five weeks of the season.

As he has each week of the 2014 NFL season, Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk has asked SB Nation to answer a question about each of the 32 NFL teams. This week, he wants just one word to describe each team's season heading into Week 6.

For the Dolphins, who have already had their bye week and, therefore, have only played four games, it may not be that easy to fully define the 2014 season in one word. Perhaps the best word is inconsistent. The Dolphins have been up and down this year, with inconsistent play on the field and inconsistent results at the end of games.

Another word that could work is unhealthy. Miami has yet to have a full squad able to play on Sundays, missing players like Pro Bowl defensive tackle Randy Starks, running back Knowshon Moreno, and Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey for some, most, or all of the season thus far. The team appears to be finally getting healthy as they approach Week 6, so perhaps the "unhealthiness" will be coming to and end shortly.

What do you think? What's the one word you would use to describe the first quarter of the season for the Dolphins?
