That’s one way to describe how the Dolphins’ offense began team drills Monday.
Here’s another: It was a continuation of the malaise on display in Saturday’s scrimmage, which led coach Adam Gase to criticize the unit in ways we haven’t heard since his arrival in Davie.
With a day off Sunday, it was two straight practices of the offense often going nowhere but backward. Yes, there were occasional positive plays, but they were as spaced apart as extended touchdown drives for this team the past few seasons. Gase said he saw improved effort Monday, perhaps unwilling to beat up on his offensive line the way his defensive line has.
