Week 5 Report Card
Dolphins 31 Jets 27
Brian Clark (lawngnome o-line)
Mark Sanchez: 12/24 172 yds 1 TD, 87.5
Sanchez did a good job protecting the ball this week, and did what he needed to, to get this team down the field. He spread the ball around a lot better, and definitely began a solid relationship with Braylon Edwards.
Running Back/Full Back: B-
Thomas Jones: 13 rushes 42 yds 2TD
Leon Washington: 10 rushes 4 yards, 1 rec 13 yards
Shonn Greene: 3 rushes 8 yards
Thomas Jones vulture two touchdowns from good throws to Edwards, and had difficulty getting through the holes again. He must lead the league for tackles for a loss. Leon provided some excitement as well, and did a decent job out of the backfield.
Wide Receiver/Tight End: B+
Dustin Keller: 0 rec 0 yards
David Clowney: 4 rec 72 yards
Braylon Edwards: 5 rec 64 yards 1 TD

The injury to Cotchery allowed for Clowney to step up and actually contribute in the game today. I was shocked, but I figure when Cotchery comes back he will go back to his normal disappearing act.

Defensive Line: D
Jenkins had a decent game, but this group as a whole got pushed around by the Dolphins offensive line. They got little had only 4 tackles for a loss in the game, and allowed for gaping holes from the wildcat. Also for another week, a QB goes without a sack. I know that Henne wasn
