Congratulations to the Miami Dolphins’ defensive linemen-Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh for this year’s Pro Bowl…wait for it…in Orlando.
By being selected to the Pro Bowl, both Wake and Suh are a testament of the Dolphins 9th ranked defense overall, a group that has come on strong catapulting the Dolphins to eight of nine wins in making a playoff push.
Both Wake and Suh have performed at a high level after the team started out 1-4.
Post the abysmal 1-4 start, the Dolphins D-linemen kick started what was already a shaky effort and injury or two away from going 6-10.
However behind a monster pass rush, both players have set the tone combining for a total of 15.5 sacks, with Suh amassing five and Wake earning his way to 10.5 sacks.
One cannot forget the players in a supporting role such as Andre Branch, with five sacks or Jason Jones with 2.5 sacks.
Why not toss Kiko Alonso in there who’s defensive efforts and heart can’t be measured by sacks, but rather by tackles (103), tackles for a loss (5), 2 interceptions (1 TD), and 1 forced fumble (4 recovered).
No, the Dolphins simply would not have won 8 of 9 without the contributions of their supporting cast.
This defense, which is young and inexperienced is a result of the blood, sweat, and tears shed in the offseason and in game adjustments that have led to their success as a whole.
The reward:- two lunch pail-toting players collecting honors and accolades for their efforts and for that, Cam Wake and Ndamukong Suh are Pro Bowlers once again.
See you in Disney World!!!
