in Sports/Top Headlines by

Perhaps the job of turning around the Miami Dolphins is a bit more complicated than first-year coach Adam Gase anticipated.

His specialty is offense, but even he would not give his team a passing grade after their 12-10 loss to the Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday. Despite a meager 222 yards of total offense, Miami was in position to upset the Seahawks and send their legions of fans home unhappy. The Dolphins led 10-6 and needed just one more stop to make the…
