Should we start this one with the good news or the bad news? Let's go with the bad. In the last three games, Miami has remained competitive UNTIL they get down by 2+ touchdowns. Once that happens, they are forced to go max protect and rely on intermediate passing....which is something Rosen is good at when he has a balanced offense a 4 receivers running routes. But with two receivers and an all-out blitz? It's a recipe for disaster since this team can't play from behind. The good news is that there were a lot of positives today- we ran the ball well. We blocked well. The defense was pretty consistent against the run until the TOP went all haywire. We had an excellent chance to win today but the team just couldn't stay on script and own their identity. Of, that's probably the best news of all....we have an identity now. This is a power running team that wants to come out and kick your *** in the trenches. As usual, I'm not going to go ultra in-depth this season until we actually have something to talk about- I'm not going to discuss play-making by third stringers who won't be here next season. But it was a fun game to watch today (until it wasn't) and I think we're starting to see some patterns forming. Preston Williams is young so he gets a season-long pass on all those drops, and I think Rosen has looked like a franchise QB two games in a row in the first halves. We need complete games from both these guys though to know what we really have. I think if the coaches stuck with the run we could have made this one competitive....maybe we still lost but it would have been closer anyway.
