Perhaps predictably, the recent struggles have led to some internal questions about the team's direction. NFL Media's Jeff Darlington reported Tuesday that "players are starting to wonder about this offensive game plan."
"Let me not overstate this: The locker room is still together," Darlington explained on NFL Network's "Around The League Live." "There's still a good vibe in there. I talked to several players today and they still feel like they can get this season back on track.
"However, there is some question of what offensive coordinator Mike Sherman is starting to do and it really started to come to a head after Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Patriots."
The Dolphins jumped out to a 17-3 halftime lead over New England before surrendering the game's final 24 points. Players wondered why Sherman got away from the running game in the third quarter after having so much success in the first half.
Lamar Miller had 13 carries for 63 yards in the first half, but only toted the ball five times for 26 yards in the second.
