The Dolphins had golden opportunities to stick it to the Steelers in the red zone in Week Seven's loss, but settled for field goals in all three trips. On the season, Miami has scored six TDs in just 12 trips to the red zone. In 2009, the Dolphins found the endzone 33 times in 54 red-zone possessions (61.1 percent), ranking fourth in the league in that category. They are on pace this season to fall well short of those numbers. One problem has been the lack of success in the "Wildcat" formation. The Dolphins ditched it completely in Weeks Six and Seven after gaining just 1.6 yards per attempt from the formation in their first four games. The way we hear it, another problem is the lack of a two-TE package they trust, something they relied upon often in 2009 in the red zone. The tight ends behind starter Anthony Fasano are a pair of undrafted and inexperienced rookies, Mickey Shuler and Jeron Mastrud.
