    Watching the game tonite to get a read on our next victim in our 2011 NFL Domination Tour.
    I don't pay that much attention to these guys, so everyone chime in and give some advice and points of view.
    They should have a decent D, but I have no idea what to expect out of them on O. Is Reggie Bust gonna be even more of a :kitten: in the wildcat? Brandon Marshall should be a good test of our secondary.

    I'm obviously out of the loop. I thought Fergie was a fat redheaded British Princess of some sort. Who is this somewhat hot blonde?

    They have a strong secondary. LBs aren't too shabby either.

    Gonna be tough to account for Marshall and Bush. Lots of pressure on Henne and Sparano to open up the offense a bit, so I expect them to do relatively decently. Davone Bess is a nice possession receiver. Gets a lot of receptions. Gonna have to account for him too. Hartline is also not too shabby.

    I really don't think the Dolphins are as bad as advertised. It's really all on Henne.

    I don't really like Henne, I think he can be shaken easily so we'll see.
    Also if Bush can handle the load at RB...but don't know much about the fins either it's said they have some exotic stuff planned for offense...

    Edit: Also...I got Bush on my auction draft for the cheap...so i'm going for the Fins today!

    Damn. I hope our LB's and S's are in shape. This could be a rough game.

    Hmmm... the 'Fins just walked right down the field on the Pats.
    Runs up the middle. Isolating Bush on their LBs....
    No wildcat trickeration.

    Let's see what their defense looks like.

    Yep, I like our odds in a shoot out with the 'Fins.

    They never did a good replay of the long reception on the 1st drive. That catch looked out of bounds.

    Lots of dinkin and dunkin from the fish. I like the Texans chances against a pass happy offense featuring Chad Henne as their QB.

    Pass defense looks pretty bad right now. Guys are wide open, could just be they are against the Pats and Brady though.

    Not a knock against you, but when people realize that our O is elite and can make good pass defenses look bad (like NE is doing now), the better you'll feel. :boogie:

    They did as part of a highlight montage after the 'Fins punted - it was a helluva catch.

    Brady carving them up. Fins secondary is better than this.

    BUT, if the New England O is doing this, then I feel confident that we can too. We're both top 5 offenses.

    Damn, the 'Fins dropped EIGHT into coverage and Brady still burned them

    You're right, but some of those passes are because of Brady. There was just one play where he hit the window perfectly. A moment later that guy is covered by the safety, but Brady drops the ball in there perfectly...don't see Schaub doing that as good as he is.

    In that case, yes it was. The more I watch, the better I like our chances. They can pick their poison: play the run or the bootleg. Either one will burn them as bad as the other.
