Over the last few years we've seen something interesting on the part of the Patriots and Ravens and perhaps even the Jets. These three teams honestly have very little pass rush to speak of, but they are so incredibly hard to run against that they make you a one-dimensional team. Against the Pats, Danny Woodhead cost Miami dearly with his quick surprise running. Had Miami been able to stop Ben-Jarvis Green Ellis early in the game or Woodhead's 14 carries for 69 yards Miami would have been able to put the Pats in the same position, league rivals have put them in the last couple years. Perhaps the best approach would be to employ something a little more novel or classic depending on the way you look at it. Back in around 2000-2003 Miami was fairly successful against top passing teams in the league. They had a steady veteran safety over the top in Brock Marion who while slow didn't make all that many mistakes. Their run defense (obviously Thomas was a big factor) was based on Tim Bowens and Larry Chester. You didn't run on Miami. I can't tell you how many times we kicked the crap out of L.T. in that era. My suggestion is that Miami look at perhaps starting a second NT the same way that Baltimore starts a second NT next to Ngata (or next to Cody, etc...). Now I'm not saying Randy Starks can't stop the run but Starks should be a guy playing left end as well as rotating in at RE. Odrick is another guy that at this point I'd say would be better off rotating in as well the same way Jay Williams was so vital for Miami back in those years. Perhaps if our 3 technique DT/3-4 DEs were a little fresher they'd be able to contribute better on passing downs. What do we give up? You would think we give up some pass rush but I'll tell you what if you stop Arian Foster regardless of what the other team is throwing at you change the dynamic of the game. You dissuade the pass so much that you can probably make the other team predictable. Let's at least do one thing right and return to being a top run defense.
