For the second season in a row, the Miami Dolphins season came to an end in the Wild Card round and now the team has to enter offseason mode. There was so much excitement for this team with how the offense was rewriting franchise records but alas, it was not meant to be. The Dolphins showed barely any life against the Kansas City Chiefs, in frigid weather, and there are plenty things to change this offseason.

One of the issues the team will face is what to do with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. As of right now, the quarterback will play next season on his fifth year option. For the first time in a long time, Tua managed to make it through a full season healthy. But despite the highs this offense showed, they stumbled when it mattered against good teams. When things are going great, this offense was electric. When things got messy, this offense disappeared. Some of it’s on the quarterback, some of it’s on the offensive personnel, some of it’s on the coaching. Mike McDaniel and the crew have to find a way to overcome this hump or this team won’t be making it past the Wild Card round again.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
