There have been the "Steel Curtain" the "Fearsome Foursome" and the "New York Sack Exchange." So if the Miami Dolphins' defensive line is so good apparently they need a nickname. They sure think they are good. Just listen to defensive end Cameron Wake. "I think we're the best line in the league" he said. "Why not? I think if you look across the board." Now let's go to defensive tackle Randy Starks. "I agree 100 percent" Starks said about having the best line. "We have guys that play the run the pass playmakers on the line and we're productive." But while the Dolphins speak so well about their line they're not quite ready to give themselves a nickname. OK there is sort of a nickname. The players have have a charity group titled "The First of Defense" in which they provide tickets to underserved individuals. "I'm not going to try to think of a nickname for the D-line" said defensive tackle Jared Odrick who said that's not really one. "Something like that maybe can start on Twitter." If anybody has any suggestions they could be be sent to @JaredOdrick98. For now the Dolphins are focused on trying to raise their record to 3-0 when they play their home opener Sunday against Atlanta. The play of the defensive line has been a key in Miami's first two wins. The linemen have eight of the team's nine sacks which is tied for second in the NFL.
