Zod

What Dolphins Fans are Saying...

Recommended Posts

I'm happy with the win. I was in no way saying we have a problem on defense. But Zod telling people they haven't watched any football for mentioning the defensive issues on Monday Night is silly. NE is going to present a threat to any defense but it wasn't elaborate offense that challenged the Panthers. It was a lot of bad tackling on the part of the Panthers.

The Pats had two weeks to scheme us, they are probably the best team in the AFC, and they have the best QB in the AFC. Games like this come down to small things and we did just enough. Our defense had one hell of a game and if we had one more experienced CB it would have been even farther apart. We are not the steel curtain but we are very good.

yep, 20 pts is not a fair indicator of how much Pats O torched us.

 

Yes, the score of the game is no indicator.

 

 

 

Good lord.

The only reason Brady was held to 20 points was due to the Carolina O playing well keeping the NE O on the sideline. 

 

The D had nothing to do with keeping NE under 21 points. Only got off the field once on 3rd down the entire game. They punted ONCE all game and pretty much drove the entire field on every possession. 

 

Ron and the D would prob be the first to say they did not have a good showing. 

 

Hell, we let them drive the length of the field with 50 seconds remaining in the game knowing they had to pass the ball. 

 

Not a good night for our D. 

Ron said his D didn't play well from the 3rd quarter to the middle of the 4th.

 

They didn't.  Carolina especially against the run....should of had lots of stops for no gain or little.  They missed a lot of tackles and played the run poorly.

It was odd to see our D tackle so poorly. I think it highlighted how good they typically play. They weren't terrible on Monday night just not as good as they normally are.

WE MYST DOMINATE IN EVERY FACET OF THE GAME EVERY SINGLE WEEK.

FIRE RIVERA!!!! TRADE CAM AND LUKE!!!

 

Pointing out what Rivera mentioned about his own defense is far from this childish predictable response.

I've watched every snap of every game this season and I can say with certainty that our D played subpar football in the second half of the game.  The Pats scored on two long TD drives and kicked a FG on the other.  The D did keep them out of the end zone on the final drive after allowing them to drive the length of the field in less than a minute although I think most would agree that it wouldn't have shocking at the end for NE to have punched it in on one of those last couple of plays.

 

Having said that we were without our best defensive lineman for most of the second half thanks to NE's bush league leg whipping, we were playing a potentially explosive offense that we forced to dink and dunk its way down the field the whole game, we did force those two TO's, and we held them to 20 which every single one of us would have taken prior to the game.

 

So while it wasn't a terrible defensive effort and it wasn't nearly as good as the previous week it was good enough for the win.

 

It's kind of like our offensive performance last week versus SF.  It didn't look good on paper or even when watching but our offense did just enough and we got the win.  That's how these things go when playing other great teams so I am happy.

There are no such thing as trap games for this team. They've come too far to soon to forget the pains of the last 5 years.

 

Agree, don't think this team has become so spoiled by winning yet that they're susceptible to trap games.

To the folks complaining about the defense "not getting off the field on third down", while I agree 100% about the missed tackles and disappearing rush please remember that they had like 7 drives all game, 1 which ended in a punt and two in turnovers.  Carolina's offense did pretty much the exact same thing to them except without the turnovers.  This is what happens when talented teams featuring both good offenses and good defenses play each other.

Guys, we are complaining about our defensive performance against a HoF coach and QB on MNF in a game we won thrillingly; just reflect on how far we've come and it's impossible to be anything but giddy.

You guys are identical and quite possibly the same poster so It don't matter.

This definitely has the makings of a letdown game.  They're at home and they are desperate.  Panthers have never beat Miami.   Sounds about right for the Panthers to win all the tough games, then come out against a mediocre, scandal-ridden Miami team and lay an egg.
