Dolphins face another fast, quick, dangerous back

The Dolphins were somewhat surprised on Sunday when Tennessee's Chris Johnson did something that 22 previous starting running backs had failed to do: He gained over 100 yards in a game.

Johnson had 126 yards on 23 carries.

The Titans basically dominated the line of scrimmage against the Miami defense. And Johnson did his thing both outside the tackles and, shockingly, between the tackles.

So it stands to reason the Dolphins want to get back to their typical selves. They eagerly anticipate starting a new streak against opposing running backs.

The problem is the Buffalo Bills on Thursday will come with a similar run scheme as the Titans did. And C.J. Spiller is a similar back to Johnson.

“Very similar, and their schemes are somewhat similar in that they feature like the type running plays," defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said. "They’re not the type of teams that line up and try to mash you off the ball. They try to get body on a body, get some movement and let those backs find the creases and use their athletic ability.

"They have speed unlike most guys in the league, both Johnson and Spiller, in that you practice against it, yet when you see it for the first time in a game it’s a little bit different. Sometimes it takes some getting used to the speed of the game so to speak, but we can’t waste any time getting used to it here this week. We have to be prepared to go out there and I think we’ll do a better job. We started working on it here this afternoon."

The Dolphins this week are stressing fundamentals. They have to break down. Have balance. Keep disciplined in their angles. And wrap up Spiller.

Otherwise he can leak out and use his speed. Otherwise it allows the Bills to become multi-dimensional on offense. Otherwise it promises another long day.

Didnt you just know Ireland would find us another Chad Henne, Pat White, for QB?

Cant win without a QB. This team has the worst FO and coaches in sports and the empty stadium is all the proof you need.

more more moore,
how do u like it , how do u like it?

this does worry me Miami has been gashed by a couple quick backs. right now the defense and offense lines are getting pushed around. if this happens thursday we lost 3 in a row. Really can not point at one player or coach this is a team failure. The field goals early where carpenters fault but these last two games have been team loses.

When people use this as a yardstick or factor in measuring a player's potential, it's a pretty good way to instantly know they don't know what they're talking about.

Yeah, so by your logic.......ah......what? You would choose guys that have lost all through school dating back to Pop Warner?

Ha Ha Ha1 Talk about getting served and played all at the same time. Like fish in a barrell sweet cheeks-ROTFLMAO!

(PS: It's easy to tell this is another of Monkey Bu-oys aliases. He's the ONLY one stoopid enough to post something this ignorant).

Yep! Like Fish In A Barrell-Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Interesting that I haven't been on the blog all day and see posts with my name on it all morning. Keep it up you chicken shyte! Consider yourself reported to Armando. Don't know who you are yet but we'll get you...loser!

Mark in Toronto,

Don't know if you have any interest at all but a friend of mine has two tickets for Thursday's game, very good seats and wants $100 for the pair. i realize it's a bit of a trek but thought I'd mention it. I'm already going or i would have snapped them up. Anyone else interested? These are season's so they are good seats.

Look, theres Odinignoramous doing the same thing he does everyday on here...calling out trolls. Acting smarter than everyone else. Pretending to know something about everything.

In other words....NOTHING!

You utterly incompotent & useless bum. Have another drink & speed up liver failure. FOR ALL OF US!

@odin... you realize he was talking about all the QBs that make it to the pros had winning records in HS/College.

no !

The Dolphins have been mediocre against the run for the last 22 games. The only reason teams don't have 100 yard rushers is that they don't need to run, because we give up 450 yards PASSING on average.

Our defense can't stop nothin'. Every opponent could rush for 200 yards every game if they wanted to, but they don't because they just pass for 450 instead.

We have a quick, dangerous back. Our coach gives him 3 carries and 15 snaps a game.

@odin... you realize he was talking about all the QBs that make it to the pros had winning records in HS/College.

Yeah, funny how that works. It kind of goes without saying. At least to those of us that aren't dumber than A Mando Blog Hit Troll.

That WAS MY POINT Einstein. But, as usual, I can see your sign in name is a complete and utter MISNOMER-ROTFLMAO!

(PS: Look it up-LOL. I know you're sitting there like: MOM!..............MOM! Whuts a misnomer.........Duh-lol)

This is too stoopid this place right here. Bhwaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Man we have been exposed big time for what we really are we are in big trouble

We won't win again this year oh wait maybe we beat the jags 5-11 here we come

Please bring some talent. To this roster mr Ireland

No wonder Salguero has threatened to ban that odin freak. No bigger troll around.

And it's true. Someone DARES to disagree with him about football and he behaves like a petulant 5-year-old brat.

Funny how he keeps desperately clinging to this laughable notion that he's liked or respected by most here, too. That's obviously FAR from reality---but I have a feeling he left reality behind 5000 bottles of vodka ago.

He IS unintentionally hilarious, though. I'll hand him that much.

TO BE
OR NOT
TO BE.........

MAC& CHEESE WITH CRABMEAT .........

ODIN NEEDS TO DRINK MILK,IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR BACK ........

I wouldnt go to a Dullfin game unless they paid me! Really.

HOW MUCH , MJ ?

..Odin. From the last thread..

As far as Wilson goes size wise. I don't think he is too small. I'm only comparing him to Earl Thomas size wise, and if you look at their pro day workouts..They were comparable. Please don't mistake this as a comparison of the indivdual talents of the 2 it isn't close. Anyway. It really isn't the size, but how he plays. At saftey I think you get a player that is in his natural position. Like I said he is learning on the fly to play corner. The mistakes he has been making look more to me like being out of position more then lack of ability. IMO

I dont know. I guess if they paid me $30 bucks and a parking pass I'd go. At least the gas and parking would be paid for.

DD...FORGET ABOUT THIS TALK ABOUT ANOTHER TALENT CAP........ TELL US ,DID YOU A GREAT BD LAST NIGH ?

CRAP

30 DOLLARS ALL YOU NEED TO WATCH A FINS GAME ,,,,WILL YOU BE ABLE TO SEE ANY THING WITH 30 dollars ?

WHY OUR GARAGE MANAGER DOESN'T BUY TICKETS FOR ALL THE FANS WHO AREN'T HAPPAY WITH HIM .........

craig m,

i noticed that you got rick trolled earlier. Totally different then your usual style. Hopefully Mando whips out his banstick on the people who impersonate others names.

I LIKE ARAMNDO THE GREAT TO STOP THE PEPOLE WHO IMPERSONATE ME.......

Todd Marinovich, I'm agree with you why to run if any team can pass easy over 400 yard, this team has open door in the back.

Heck, Armando gets paid big bucks to go to the games. I'd go if I got paid what he does.

MJ... ARMANDO DOESN'T GET PAID FROM THE HERALD ....IT'S A TOUGH TIME RIGHT NOW...HE JUST WORK FOR HIS 2 MEALS A DAY ...

Ross will soon be giving away lots of free tickets in hopes he can get some parking and concession revenues.

BREAD BUDDING...........


LAMB SHANKS.


BONELESS WHOLE TURKY .............

APPLE CRISP

I think most teams that previously performed terrible on their last game, have a better outing, well that's I hope for on thursday.

ALoco,

I've always liked your posts. But you have to be the most impersonated person on the blog. I'm a chef too so usually i can tell whats off. Anyways what's up for a great side on thanksgiving to impress my gf's latin fam?

thursday should be ugly, 2 bad teams going at it. fitz should have huge game but we should be able to move the ball also on them

BEERPHIN...


LATIN PEOPLE ARE EASY TO PLEASE BUT I THINK ,GORGNZOLA RISOTTO CAKE WITH CHESTNUT WILL DO ...

See, those are the problems that happen when you fukk someone not within your same Education.. Look at this Gen. Petraeus. No truly Educated woman would betray her Man. "Extra-marital relationships and Marriage must happen within the same Education", Chabuca Granda.

ANY ONE COOKS THE WHOLE TURKEY AS IS WITH IT'S BONES ,IS A DONKEY,,,


YOU GOT TO DEBONE IT ,THEN FRESH HERBS AND ROLLED WITH BACON AND COOK IT SLOW AT 300 .

it doesnt get any more boring then Bills vs Fins.

OSCAR, I THINK IT'S ATTRACTIVE TO HAVE A RELEATIONSHIP WITH A MARRIED WOMAN WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HER HUSBAND ,,,,,THAT'S VERY SEXY .....


PS///I NEVER SEEN ANY EDUCATED LATIN WOMAN ....

Yeah, I would go with a not dry, boneless Turkey.

... i like n your right my gf says anything will please. Her mom is a chef in LA too though so I'm trying to incorporate something that might surprise her from latin cuisine. She is honduran BTW. I'm assuming your atleast part cuban so I guess i may be barking up the wrong tree. Anyways appreciated

Educated Latin Women MUST exist, ALoco, don't you think? They just don't associate with you(or with Me, since I came to this Country).

MJ To Ross ticket revenue concessions and parking etc are all part of the cash flow for the business.Dont forget it has been said owning an NFL franchise has been compared to having a license to print money,google it if you dont believe me.All the franchises share in the television contract which is in the billions.The franchises apreciate in value considerbly through the years as there are a limmited number of them.If I had the financial statements I would like to review themthis is just an opinion just like almost everything that is posted on this blog.

WHAT I MEANT ,LATIN WOMAN ARE HUMBLE,NICE HUMANS ,


BTW....I TAKE THAT BACK,ALL THE EDUCATED LATIN WOMEN ARE UGLY....

IF YOU LOOK AT ANY RACE, ALL THE EDUCATED ONES ARE LESS BEAUTIFUL B/C THEY HAVE LESS TIME TO TAKE OF THEMSELVES.........

TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES,,,,,

AS FOR THE LATIN MEN ,,,,NEEDLESS TO SAY ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

BLESS ALL OF THEM .......

GUYS,

I AM GOING TO STOP NW POSTING TO LET OTHERS HAVE THE FLOOR.THANK YOU...

ticket revenue concessions and parking etc are all part of the cash flow for the business.

Really? How profound. Do you think there is anyone that doesnt know that? lol



ALoco, you really are one stupid puto.

beerphin,


just make a tres leches cake, and some kind of holiday frosting like pumpkin, or maybe with cinnamon, walnuts and raisens

Why Can't WE COVER!!! RB's OR TE's!!!!

SLOWFOOTED!!! OVERPAID!! LB's!!

WHEN WE ALL COME TO THIS SIMPLE TRUTH!!!! AND GET RID OF DANSBY AND BURNETT!!! THIS OFFSEASON!!

THE DEFENSE WILL BE BETTER!!

REAL LB's!!! MAKE PLAYS!!! SPECIALLY AFTER UR TEAM TURNS THE BALL OVER!!!

NOTICE!! IT IS ALMOST AUTOMATIC!! WHEN THE FINS TURN THE BALL OVER!!! THE DEFENSE!!!! NEVER!!!!!! STOPS!!! THE OTHER TEAM!!! MIGHT AS WELL GIVE THE OTHER TEAM 7!! AND GIVE THE FINS THE BALL BACK!!

CAUSE WE ALL KNOW!!! THESE LB's!! DON'T MAKE IMPACT PLAYS!!! EVER!!

A REAL DEFENSE!!! AND MLB!!! MAKE PLAYS!!! WHEN THE GAME IS ON THE LINE!!!

O.VERNON!! WHO IS A DE!! IS FASTER!! THAN THESE SLOW LB'S!!

AND WHO IS COACH PHILBIN's Favorite QB/Player? Let Me Leave U with a Quote! From The Coach himself!

"I think Pat Devlin is a teacher's pet," Philbin said of his third-string quarterback, "but other than Pat, everybody else is the same."

This was in Reference to Does Coach play Favorites! Or give Players Star TREATMENT!!

Hopefully, Now!! Some of U "Morons". Know What the Coach! Thinks! Even though!! He has been saying the SAME THING!! FROM DAY 1!!!

And DASHI HAS BEEN SAYING!! T-Hill is the Starter!! Devlin is His Caddy!!!

So BYE-BYE!! MOORE!!! The Coach is Just being a StandUp Guy! Integrity!! But HE OWES MATT NOTHING!!

AND REGGIE DANCES TO MUCH!! ELSE U CAN COMPARE HIM TO SPILLER! OR C.JOHNSON! Fast RB's! Who MAKE 1 CUT AND GO!!

Forbes most recently valued the Miami Dolphin franchise at 920 million. Thats 180 million LESS then Ross paid for it.

dashi, ok well, just keep in mind there is not likely a single person with pro football coaching experience that would find anything you've said to have any value beyond blogwash.

WHAT MAKES FORBS THE ONE TO DECIDE WHAT THE DOLPHINS VALUE ?

WHEN A GUY WANTS EO OWN AN NFL TEAM,HE WILL BE WILLING TO OVERPAY.........

Aloco, its an analysis of cash flow and comparison to all the other franchises. And sure, anyone can overpay for anything.
