DAVIE Michael Deiter Miami Dolphins Jerseys , Fla. (AP) — Adam Gase says the Miami Dolphins‘ run defense will be better than last year.The preseason says otherwise.Miami has allowed 299 yards rushing in the first two exhibition games. That includes 226 yards Friday at Carolina, and 71 on one play — a touchdown run by Christian McCaffrey on the second snap of the night.The leaky ground defense is especially worrisome because the same problem contributed greatly to a 6-10 finish in 2017. The Dolphins gave up over 170 yards rushing three times during a five-game losing streak that sent the season south.Despite evidence to the contrary, Gase says his run defense is improved.“I can see how it’s starting to come together,” he said Sunday.“Clean up some of the mistakes, and we’ll be all right,” middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan said.The front seven is still adjusting to the loss of five-time Pro Bowl tackle Ndamukong Suh, who was cut when his enormous contract became too burdensome. Last week the Dolphins signaled they’re struggling to replace Suh when they signed veteran Kendall Langford, who had been out of the NFL since early November.Langford was rushed into action at Carolina. He played 18 snaps, made no assignment mistakes and is in excellent shape, Gase said.Langford joins a group of tackles that also includes veteran newcomer Akeem Spence, perennial underachiever Jordan Phillips and two players taken on the final day of the 2017 draft, Davon Godchaux and Vincent Taylor. New defensive line coach Kris Kocurek plans a heavy rotation to keep everyone fresh.The defensive lineman making the biggest impact so far is former Pro Bowl end Robert Quinn, an offseason acquisition who had two sacks at Carolina. He had 19 sacks with the Rams in 2013.“Hopefully I can get back to those good numbers,” Quinn said. “That’s kind of my mindset — to break records and do something extreme.”Overall Miami Dolphins Jerseys 2019 , Gase said, the remaking of the front four is on schedule.“I like where our d-line is,” the coach said. “We’ve just got to make sure we do a better job of fitting the runs right, but they’re attacking.”There are fresh faces at linebacker, too, and both are youngsters from Ohio State. McMillan is starting in the middle after missing all of his rookie season in 2017 because of a knee injury. Rookie Jerome Baker, a third-round pick, is the front-runner to start on the outside opposite veteran Kiko Alonso.McMillan and Baker are two big reasons Gase remains optimistic about the direction of the run defense.“We’ll get those guys up to speed,” Gase said. “They’ll be doing it right once we hit the first week. We have athletic guys in that second level. We’ll give them opportunities to make plays, and they’ll make them.”McMillan and Baker were nowhere to be found on McCaffrey’s long run, however, and defensive backs Bobby McCain and T.J. McDonald took bad angles.“We had two guys get too aggressive in the secondary,” Gase said.Such mistakes are correctable, the coach said. He has less than three weeks to fix them. CORAL GABLES Michael Deiter Jersey Cheap , Fla. (AP) — Mark Richt’s tenure as coach at Miami has been a constant run of streaks: Win his first four games, then lose his next fours, then win 15 consecutive times, and now lose another four in a row.He’s ready for the pendulum to start swinging the other way again.And it should begin moving in that direction Saturday, when the Hurricanes host Savannah State. Beating an overmatched opponent this coming weekend won’t dull the sting from a season-opening 33-17 loss to LSU — but in a very disappointed locker room after that game, Richt tried to convince his team that every trophy they want to touch this season is still within reach.“If you’re going to lose a game, it might as well be the first one,” Richt said. “People tend to kind of forget about it if you play well as the season goes along. That’s what I told the team.”His point makes sense. The LSU loss doesn’t hurt Miami in the Atlantic Coast Conference race, which is the springboard to every other goal on their checklist for 2018.But even so, after the opener was mostly a debacle, this will not be a pleasant next few days for Miami (0-1).The Hurricanes are sure to drop from the No. 8 spot in Tuesday’s AP Top 25 poll and will probably freefall on the ballots of many voters who saw how lopsided things looked when LSU led 33-3 after three quarters. There will be adjustments to the depth chart, and quarterback Malik Rosier — who was 15 for 35 against LSU — might even hear some boos from fans at Miami’s home opener against Savannah State.Rosier had moments where he looked fantastic, leading two touchdown drives that got Miami within some sort of striking distance in the final 15 minutes. He also had more than a few moments where he misfired, sometimes badly. LSU picked Rosier off twice Michael Deiter Jersey Womens , had plenty of other interception opportunities, and had no trouble putting him under pressure.“He certainly made a few great throws and made some great plays,” Richt said. “We just dug the hole so deep, it was very difficult to dig out. But we did make it interesting there for a minute. That’s about the best I can say for that.”Rosier started 6 for 10 passing. He then completed four of his next 15 throws, with two interceptions in that stretch, as the game turned into an LSU runaway.“We have a long season,” Rosier said. “I feel like if we go out and we win every game … we still have a chance.”In other words, this is where a hot streak would come in handy.Miami should still be favored, probably considerably, in each of its next four games. Savannah State is a FCS school that’s dropping to Division II next year and is coming off a 52-0 loss to UAB. The Hurricanes then go to Toledo, play host to FIU and open defense of their ACC Coastal Division championship against North Carolina.Win all those, and LSU becomes a distant memory.Slip up again, and who knows what happens from there.“We’re not out of it,” Rosier said. “We’ve got to put this game behind us.”There’s a lot for Miami to clean up in the interim.Miami committed 11 penalties against LSU and was 7 for 19 on third- and fourth-down conversion chances — areas where the Hurricanes struggled last season as well. Rosier’s accuracy Michael Deiter white jersey , something he spent the offseason working to improve, was far from sharp. Other than wide receiver Jeff Thomas, who had five catches for 132 yards, no one had big numbers offensively. And the defense failed to get a takeaway, meaning the “turnover chain” never left its case.“If we just get better and better and better and better, and we get to win and continue to win, then I think all our hopes and dreams are still alive,” Richt said. “I think a lot of people will try to bury us at this point, but the reality is there’s a lot of games left to be played.”
