    With three offensive linemen hurt Youth Aaron Lynch Jersey , Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was feeling the heat Monday.From his critics, that is.Tannehill took a pounding in the Dolphins’ latest defeat Sunday at Cincinnati, and then caught plenty of blame for his team’s second ugly loss in a row. Coach Adam Gase, ever loyal to Tannehill, mounted a modest defense by noting problems with pass protection.”I don’t think he was horrible,” Gase said. “When a (teammate) gets beat so fast he can’t defend himself unless he’s Houdini, not many guys are getting away.”The Dolphins are 3-2 and tied with New England for the AFC East lead Youth Prince Amukamara Jersey , but it hardly feels that way. In the past two weeks they’ve lost at the Patriots 38-7 and blown a 17-point lead at Cincinnati , leaving Gase forced to address the question of whether Tannehill remains his starting quarterback (the answer was yes).Tannehill took responsibility for the Dolphins’ collapse Sunday, when they were outscored 27-0 by the Bengals in the final 21 minutes left and lost 27-17. His ill-advised pass under pressure was intercepted and returned for a touchdown, and a strip sack produced Cincinnati’s final score.”It all started with the turnovers,” Tannehill said. “That’s on me.”In Tannehill’s defense, he was hit 11 times in the second half. Protection by Miami’s injury-riddled line disappeared after left tackle Laremy Tunsil was sidelined with a concussion.This season’s offensive line was expected to be the best Tannehill has played behind, but instead the perennial problem of poor pass protection persists. The Dolphins lost left guard Josh Sitton and center Daniel Kilgore to earlier season-ending injuries.”Anytime starters go down Youth Eddie Goldman Jersey , it’s hard,” Tannehill said.When Miami was 3-0, Tannehill had a quarterback rating of 121.8. But in the past two games it’s 54.0, with one touchdown pass, four turnovers and five sacks. He has struggled mostly on third down and late in the game, a career-long pattern.No letup in pass pressure is likely this week, when the Dolphins face the Chicago Bears (3-1) and Pro Bowl end Khalil Mack Youth Prince Amukamara Jersey , who has at least one sack and at least one forced fumble in every game.How will the Dolphins slow Mack down?”You’re not going to slow him down,” Gase said.Sam Young flopped as Tunsil’s replacement in Cincinnati. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said the Dolphins missed Tunsil, especially because they left Young in one-on-one situations.”It makes a difference when you lose a tackle at this level of football,” Lewis said. “And they didn’t seem to want to help the guy when they left the guy out there. Our guys did a nice job. We had blood in the water, and we went after it.”Gase said he’ll re-evaluate the line this week and make “a couple of decisions” regarding who plays where.”We’ll figure it out,” Gase said. “That’s what we do. They’re not going to stop the season. We’re going to play next week no matter how many guys we’ve got.” The biggest concern about the Seattle Seahawks’ overhauled defense entering the season was probably the pass rush.The worries proved to be true in the season opener when the Seahawks generated just one sack and very little pressure against a quarterback that mostly sat in the pocket.The challenge in Week 2 will be different with the Seahawks facing the mobility of second-year Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, but the need to wreak at least some havoc in the backfield remains the same.”Anytime you play you want to get the quarterback off the spot. Anytime you end up with one sack http://www.authenticschicagobears.com/cheap-akiem-hicks-jersey , everyone would like to have three or four,” Seattle defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. said. “It’s something certainly we want to get better at. … No question you want more pressure.”Seattle’s pass rush was perhaps a bigger worry going into the season than any of the changes that took place in its secondary. The Seahawks played most of last season without Cliff Avril due to a neck injury but still had Michael Bennett teaming with Frank Clark and finding success. Seattle finished last season 13th in the league with 39 sacks and was in the middle of the pack in the league rankings on the percentage of dropbacks that resulted in a sack. They were decent numbers considering the changes Seattle went through midseason with the loss of one of their top pass rushers.The overhaul in the offseason left most of the burden on Clark as really the only proven pass rusher on the roster. Avril hasn’t completely shut the door on playing again, but it seems unlikely. Bennett was traded to Philadelphia as part of Seattle’s changes.The opener against Denver showed there is still plenty to figure out.Clark had Seattle’s lone sack, but just one of the five quarterback hits on Case Keenum. Seattle rarely brought pressure and the front four was unable to generate enough heat to make Keenum uncomfortable.”We got stuck on the line of scrimmage on play passes and was really the part that was really disappointing that we didn’t respond better to get into our pass-rush mode,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “It just happened. That’s one phase of it and we would have liked to have got off on the edge a little better than we did. It’s just stuff we’ve got to keep working on.”Getting Dion Jordan on the field more would be a big boost for Seattle. Jordan was limited to just 15 plays in the opener after missing all of training camp with a lower leg injury. Jordan was only activated to from the physically unable to perform list when Seattle made its final cuts, and his inclusion in Week 1 was a bit of a surprise considering the time he missed.”Not having those reps for a while I was definitely a little rusty but other than that I physically felt really good,” Jordan said.Jordan flashed late last season when he finally was healthy enough to get back on the field. He had four sacks in five games last season and was seen as a major piece of the pass rush moving forward. Jordan said he should be on the field more considering the way he felt coming out of the opener.”We’ve got to do a better job this week of sticking to our rush plan Mitchell Trubisky Jersey , sticking to it, and executing,” Jordan said. “Understanding that certain quarterbacks and (offensive coordinators), they’re going to try and get the ball out quick and block them up with eight guys in there so we can’t get to them. We have to understand that and find a way around it.”NOTES: Carroll didn’t have updates on the timelines for three injured players: WR Doug Baldwin (knee), LB K.J. Wright (knee surgery) and G D.J. Fluker (hamstring). None of the three participated in practice Thursday. … LB Bobby Wagner (groin) and rookie CB Tre Flowers (hamstring) also sat out practice.
