Dolphins willing and able to stop Wildcat

The Dolphins have used the Wildcat formation/package/gimmick plenty this season with considerable reward for the use. Some of Miami's biggest plays this season have come out of that package.

So the Wildcat has been a friend.

But can it be an adversary?

The Raiders, Miami's opponent this weekend, are among the dozen or so teams that have employed a version of the Wildcat package at different times this year. In fact, the Raiders unveiled their Wildcat package the same day (September 21) the Dolphins did, although they've not used it to the same degree or with the same amount of success.

So are the Dolphins ready for the Wildcat package if it is employed against them?

“I hope that we’re prepared, but we’re going to prepare just like they’re going to prepare for us," Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said. "With that being said, we’ve practice against it a bunch. We know what our answer is. We’re not searching for our answer. We know what it is. Now whether or not we execute it well enough or good enough in the game, we’ll see. We know what our answers are.”

Sparano is confident his team knows what to do. Linebacker Joey Porter seems confident his team will succeed against it.

"We’ve been running it since the beginning of the season, so we feel that we’ve got some things that can stop it," Porter said. "Like I said, it’s a copycat league, just won’t be the only team that’ll probably run it.  If you look across the league, a lot of teams have been using it.  If they try it, we’ll be ready for it.”

I have been a Dolphins fan all my life but have never lived in the Miami area, lived in NY, come from a big family of Jets and Giants fans, moved around some and now in Dallas so having this site has been great! I get more information and now that the team is playing better, it makes it more fun!

Go Phins!!!!

Armando, next time you have a contest like this (30,000 comment)??? make sure you give away tickets to the dolphins game man!!
It was pretty interesting!!
Let's see what Luis comes up with!!
GO DOLPHINS!!!!!

Hey Frank, that's interesting too!
but my question to you is, what's the reason that makes you root for our dolphins?
When I first started watching football, the first team i saw playing was...miami!!!
GO DOLPHINS???

If the dolphins win this game its hard to argue they are not for real and pretty much cement the fact that whatever Armando says or predicts the opposite happens. Armando is a great contrarian indicator.

Frank, you're not alone. My dad's a Patriots fan, and the only time I've been to Miami was layovers at the airport...but I've been a fan since the 70s. Impressionable kid+winning team=lifelong fan.

HEY ARMANDO!!!!!!!
Is it true that Chad Pennington has been added to the injured report??

Hopefully Henning will put Ginn in motion to avoid Asomugha. If not, I hope we can utilize Fasano better than we have been. Since the WR's have been more involved, he hasn't seen many passes. I think we will be running Ricky down their throats all day long anyway since they are so bad against the rush.

Congrats Luis. Don't mess up. We'll all be ready to comment. No pressure.

Ha, just kidding.

Again, Thakns for the contest, Armando!
