So here is the problem with our team and the one way have to play.
First the O. Our O.C. still sucks ass and think we can pound the ball up the middle with a week line. You can not pound the ball up the gut with a 210 RB over and over. Just not going to happen. Most DB's are that size and can bring your RB's down. D. Thomas yes you can pound him up the gut untill his breaks just a bigger back and harder to push over. Bush and the wasted pick up in Slaton should be off tackle runners. Sean Peyton is no Dummy and he used Bush the right way. Outside running , screen passes and check downs. Every now and then you can run him up the middle just to keep the D. honest. When you only throw deep 2 or 3 times a game the safties crowd the box. Now why don't throw deep maybe because our Wr's cant get open or are so yes I said slow 4.5 and 4.6 is not fast in the NFL. yes Gates has speed but can not get off the line with separation . So the D has no worries of our Wide outs. B. Marshall draws the double and the everyone else just says we will give it to you if you can take it, and guess what we cant. SO with not being able to run the ball we cant throw, and not being able to throw we cant run, sounds stupid, but anyone that has played the game higher than High school ball or Madden will tell you the same, the one opens up the other. If you can keep them guessing then you have already one the game. Ex. The Pats. Yes it hurts to say it.
Now our D. The 3-4 scheme is a great scheme but you need the players to run it. Our NT is solid but not great. Yes he racks up Double teams and that's his job, but the other must get pressure and they well just aren't. Starks has been how can I say this... just not the Starks of old, and JT is well just old. Hey I love J.T. and would keep him untill he wants to leave, but he should been used sparingly . Relief of Wake or Blitzing downs.Odrick , Langford, Merling and Starks should make up the front 3 only big bodies with power and can help set the edge. Our MLB's should be able to bust any running play up that comes up the middle, but they cant. Burnnett is horrid and Dansby is in coverage or bailing out Burrnett. Our DB's that were going to be the next Madison and Surtan, nope not a chance. They are here one play then gone for 2or 3 more.Davis plays the run better than coverage, well that might be a bit harsh, but they both need more work. Safeties Bell is solid ,but we have no true F.S. and that is needed in this league. So how do you move the ball against the Miami Dolphins beside with ease. By running to T.E's and making the Dolphins key player drop into coverage on run plays.The split T.E. chips Wake or Taylor and draws one of the two into coverage,and then draws Dansby or Burnnett into coverage also.Leaving the other the only line of defense by the line. With P.S. drawing a double team and no other D-lineman drawing the same that leave Dansby all alone with a pulling O-lineman which he will loose most of the time. For passing downs same coverage just throw to the mis-match OLB covering T.E. or which ever of the to DB's we have taking that play off.
I could go on but I hope you get the idea of it. So if I can figure it out, what makes you think someone getting paid a hell of a lot more than me cant. We are in dire need of a change to our game planning. Maybe Ross should go to Barnes and Noble and pick up Football for Dummies or even Football 101 and hand it off to T.S. and Dabol and tell them to read it cover to cover during the bye week. This is not hard to figure out just basic football.
Sad part of all this is that I am a Miami Dolphin fan for life!!!! I will not leave this team, I did not jump ship with the 1-15 season and will not now. I guess if you never experience pain you will never know Pleasure, calm down Alpha and Beaver not that kind. So I will sit by every Sunday a continue to scream for and at my Miami Dolphins. So untill we fix these problems, there is no need to Suck for Luck or any other plans. We just need to learn how to game plan and maybe draft a touch better. Okay I'm done starting to ramble. Be well and here's to 12-4!!!!!! LOL
