NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Miami Dolphins by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

MIAMI DOLPHINS (24)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 27) - Growing pains and Ryan Tannehill.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 27) - Wheels are coming off the offense. Ryan Tannehill needs to regroup.

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 20) - Turnovers becoming an issue with this offense and a big reason why they lost three straight.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 24) - It wasn't long ago the Dolphins looked as if they'd turned the corner. Now they look as if it's 2011 all over again.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 23) - The Dolphins rank 21st in the NFL in defense. That's the best defense being played in the state of Florida. Tampa Bay ranks 29th and Jacksonville 31st.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 23) - That sound you just heard was Ryan Tannehill hitting the wall.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 25) - They still haven't gotten over that loss to Indy. Snap out of it.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 21) - The running game disappeared, the run defense has been challenged and the young quarterback is going to take time to develop.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 22) - The Dolphins have come back to reality. The reality is they aren't quite there yet as a team.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 24) - With the lack of talent on offense and at cornerback being exposed during a two-game losing streak, the heat is back on general manager Jeff Ireland for his offseason personnel decisions.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 23) - Looks like the rest of the league might have caught up with the Dolphins.
