Kevin Coyle: Record day not a setback

Dolphins defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle is a proud guy so he cannot be too happy his defense  -- until now effective -- was shredded by Andrew Luck on Sunday. Luck established a rookie record for most passing yards in a game.

It was a rookie record.

But a record nonetheless.

This is what Coyle said:

(On the defense allowing 13 of 19 third down conversions) –“It’s obviously very disappointing and that’s been one of our strengths throughout the year. We’ve been consistently getting better in that area. For a number of different reasons, we didn’t get it done yesterday. I think it was a combination of things. They made some plays against us. I wish I had a few calls back in the game. I’ll be the first one to take blame for a good portion of it. I think the combination of them executing and us not executing the defenses that we normally, we didn’t do anything different. We tried a lot of things as the game went on to try to change it up. We rushed them, we covered them, we spied the quarterback, we blitzed them. It wasn’t like, I went back after the game, wanted to see exactly what we called in what instances and tried to determine if there was a pattern or a trend. I don’t think it was that. It was just one of those games that they made some plays and we didn’t and we’ve got to do better. We’ve got to rush the passer better, we’ve got to cover better and I’ve got to do a better job of getting them in position to make the plays.”

(On the team’s struggles blitzing Andrew Luck) – “We hit him 11 or 12 times when we actually got to him, but we didn’t sack him only (but) one time. He made a couple of throws as he was going down to the ground. He made a couple of throws running away from the line of scrimmage. The long touchdown, if you go back and really look at the play, he just threw it up there. He never even saw Sean Smith overlapping the play and really laid it up there where we might have had a chance to make the play. We didn’t make the play. But to his credit, he’s very good in the pocket. He’s got great poise for a young player. As you watch him on tape, you see things that he does that you see a lot of veteran players in the league not do. In other words, when the rush is coming in his face, he’s not fazed by it. He doesn’t change his way, his demeanor. He’ll have a great pocket presence to slide and keep a play alive and we lost the edge a few times and he kept the plays going. I was really impressed with him. Even talking with some of their coaches prior to the game, they were concerned that he does it too much trying to extend plays and they’re worried about that fact. Certainly, yesterday, he made those.” 

(On if yesterday’s performance was a big step back for the secondary) – “No, I don’t think it’s a big step back. It’s a disappointment for all of us and that’s what we talked about today in the unit meeting with everybody, not just the secondary. We’ve been building something here since Coach (Joe) Philbin has come here and our first meetings with the players in April. One game is not going to set us back and I mean that and I told the players that. I said we’ve got a body of work where we were making a lot of progress and the secondary is one area where we have made a lot of progress. I don’t know if there’s anybody that has played the game or coached the game that hasn’t had a game where you come off and say, ‘How did that happen?’ Well, this is one of them and, I’ve got to be honest with you, I’m disappointed. I’ve never seen us get in a situation where we had a team in third-and-long and weren’t able to cash in. That’s always been something we’ve been pretty good at throughout the season here. Certainly, I don’t negate the fact that these guys, when you see them come to work every day the way they do, the way they prepare. It’s a bump in the road for us and a big one and we’ve got to get it turned around right away. Certainly, one game out of eight where we did not perform at the level of our standards, it’s not anybody else’s standards, it’s ours, is very disappointing. And we’re going to take that and energize ourselves as we get prepared for this next one. We’re going to come out and play a heck of a game come Sunday.”

(On the pass defense in the first half of the season) – “Well, rankings, you can twist rankings and statistics a lot of different ways and obviously we’re giving up way too many yards. Yesterday, we gave up way too many big plays in the game. You can also look at the fact that I think we’re somewhere around six or seven in the league in terms of completion percentages against us. I think that there’s been some positives in that sense. We’ve also had 45 passes-a-game thrown against us. By far the number one attempts in the league are against us. Tampa Bay is the only other team that has over 40 and they’re like at 41 and then everybody else is below that. But it’s a combination of we’ve got to do a better job in the coverage and we also have to continue to do a good job in the rush game (and) against the running game. I think, when you make teams throw the ball as much as we are, usually good things are going to happen sooner or later. It didn’t yesterday unfortunately for us. But the bottom line is, even with that being said, we were in the game with an opportunity to win the game at the end and we didn’t. The biggest disappointment… We had two scenarios that happened in the game – the one at the end of the first half where we had them third-and-long and they converted to kick the field goal was a big play in the game. Prior to that, I should say the third-and-nine in the red zone. It’s another area that we’ve been particularly effective in this season. I think right now Chicago’s the only team that is ahead of us in red zone defense in terms of touchdowns per attempts in the red zone per series in the red zone and that’s a good thing. But we gave up one on third-and-nine. We had them right where we wanted them. They gained nothing the first two plays and we gave up a touchdown there. We gave up the one right there before the end of the half and then we had them third-and-12 backed up and that play where they dumped the ball off and we missed a tackle (and) they converted and then eventually went down and kicked the winning field goal. That play was a big swing because, had we stopped them there, they’re going to be punting right around their end zone or out of their end zone and we would have had a chance hopefully to get the ball in good field position at that point, but we didn’t and they went on to continue the drive and score the winning field goal. Like I said, we’ve got our work cut out for us, but these guys have gotten better and I believe in these guys and we’re going to go out there and take the second half of the season. We look at it, we’re eight games in and honestly my wife had to remind me of this on the phone last night because I wasn’t feeling to good, but she said, ‘You know you guys have lost three games by three points, each of them.’ And I hadn’t even thought of that to be quite honest with you. That hadn’t even crossed my mind. When she said that, it kind of dawned on me that, yeah, we’re making progress, but we’re not where we want to be and we can be better. I think the players know that and we’re not going to accept anything less.”

(On if this Sunday against the Titans if the team will copy what the Bears did against them yesterday) – “Well, I’ll tell you what, the Bears did a heck of a job. They started fast. Yeah, we liked to do that, start fast. Actually, the first play of the game was a nice conversion for Tennessee and (Charles) Tillman came from behind and stripped the guy after they gained about 18 yards or so. It didn’t look good initially for the Bears, but they certainly swarmed on defense and they’re playing great defense. We’ll look at them and anybody else that we can get a good thought from and implement it into our package.”

(On how it affects preparation not knowing who the Titans starting quarterback will be) –“Not a whole lot. They’re kind of a system team. They’re going to run their offense. I don’t think the one quarterback changes things dramatically. So we’ll see. I think we’ll know a little bit more as the week goes on because I don’t think the young guy (Jake Locker) has practiced yet and if he’s out there practicing, getting reps, there’s a good chance he’ll play. If not, they made hold him off until after the bye week. They have a bye week after we play them.”

(On how much of a difference it has made with Richard Marshall being out)– “It certainly (has) not helped us. You’ve got a veteran player there who gives us that veteran competitiveness and leadership in the secondary, both on the outside and also in the nickel. Jimmy (Wilson’s) role has expanded. Jimmy’s played well at times. I think I mentioned to you guys last week how impressed I was with how he covered the slot for the Jets (slot receiver Jeremy Kerley) who’s a good player too. And yesterday, he struggled at times. But like I said, there’s not a guy that’s played the game and the best one’s in this game that haven’t had a game where you got beat and you made mistakes. We just seemed to have too many guys at one time do it and we’re going to get it fixed. We’re going to do everything we can to get it fixed.”

RBs, if so, then we let him walk. I just don't see Ireland overpaying for him. When's the last time you saw Ireland overpay for anyone? He doesn't do that. He sticks to his guns. And he'll see Long isn't a "must keep" player right now. He's a "try to keep" or "would be nice to keep" player.

But getting rid of him is only half the battle. Think it through. Who are you replacing him with? Jonathan Martin (have you seen the guys he's let get by him)? Use a high draft pick (again) on a LT, when we have more pressing needs at WR, TE, S, CB, DE pass rusher? Through FA (where you pay more for guys who are closer to being washed up than not)? It has to both make good football sense AND business sense to get rid of a player, not one or the other.

DC,

All very good points. As for the draft I'd take the BPA on our board. If that's a LT so be it. It certainly worked with Pouncey.

WHRBs, we don't have the resources (and we have A LOT of resources in the draft next season as well as cap space) to sign a top-notch LT to replace Long. We need to bite the bullet (it seems franchise tag seems the best bet to see if he continues to regress or if he returns to form) and bring him back. We can't afford to waste resources/money on an LT right now. Our OL is performing much better than it was under the Sparano era and we have 2 players that are top 3-5 at their respective positions (Pouncey + Long). We can't give up on Long because he no longer can contain Dwight Freeney 1 on 1 -- not many can anyway. Our RBs are looking to help block elsewhere, NO ONE on that team expects anyone to get past Long, maybe now we adjust a little but he's still an elite LT

Hanging in here, Mr. S., hanging in here.

Bottom line.....Tannehill is not a 1st rd QB.

"...NO ONE on that team expects anyone to get past Long, maybe now we adjust a little but he's still an elite LT."


MD20,

I don't see it. I'd definitely re-up on Starks & Hartline before I'd even think about keeping Long.

The Texans had a VERY similar situation last with both Mario Williams & Eric Winston. I'm pretty sure that their fans were crazed by those decisions but it worked out b/c they keep finding players through the draft.

Bottom line.....Tannehill is not a 1st rd QB.

Shula,

Really....After 8 games you know that??? I think I'm going to go with Mike Sherman's opinion who coached him in college.

Long is hurting us this year & that's a fact. When was the last time you heard a LT apologizing for getting your a## kicked in??? This from a guy who is playing for a new contract???


WHRBs,

Huge over-reaction on your part. What is it exactly you want this guy to say about his performance? 'It wasn't my fault'. 'Feeney got lucky'. The guy, being the leader he is, is taking responsibility for his performance. And what do you do? You rip him for standing up and take responsibility for his play Sunday. HUH?

And don't remember reading any comments about his poor performance from your boy Starks who was INVISIBLE Sunday? Is that what you'd really want from a guy who is ALSO looking for a new contract?

WHRB @ 2:45 as will I. I still give 3:1 odds that jake is a Dolphin next year. We don't need another left tackle. We however do need for our Qb to mature further, some help at WR and TE, and another two higher draft picks for our secondary.

We're close to being 7-1 or even 6-2 and 'Long is hurting us'. That's the best you can come up with. I don't remember reading those comments after our win with against the Bengals or our win against the Raiders. It must have been Long's fault that Smith can't catch anything or covering any one. Probably Long's fault that Carpenter missed those kicks earlier this year.

WHRBs, I'm not really caring what your biased opinion of Long is. I cited an article yesterday from ESPN from May that cited Long as the second best LT in the league. I'm not the kind of guy that likes to pile on after a guy's had a bad game. It's clear you are.

Mark,

I'll back you on this odds. He'll either be under a long term contract or he'll be franchised. You don't let a guy like Jake Long walk and I also don't buy this BS that 'he's in decline'. Says who?

I used the example of Ryan Cady yesterday who allowed 24.5 sacks over a 3 year period. If he's so crappy why don't the Broncos let him walk. Because he's a Pro Bowl Lt and Manning needs to be protected to do what he does best. Guys don't have to LIKE that LTs are the second highest paid position on the team but that's just the way it is.

Pretty sure the first team that will call Jake Long if he makes it to FA will be BB. Why? Because he knows if he has a quality LT protecting Brady, then Brady will do the damage he does.

Huge over-reaction on your part. What is it exactly you want this guy to say about his performance? 'It wasn't my fault'. 'Feeney got lucky'. The guy, being the leader he is, is taking responsibility for his performance. And what do you do? You rip him for standing up and take responsibility for his play Sunday. HUH?

Craig,

I'll give you this--I can always count on you to defend him. Let's be real here--it's not like Long just had ONE bad game this year. He struggled against the Texans, the Raiders, & the Cardinals.

Craig, nice work by Mando here instigating a full fledged wildfire where there is a moderate flame. Sure jake isn't playing to his level but it wasn't jake that gave up 1.5 miles on defense on Sunday. The front seven was way more to blame.

And as usual most of the puppets are going for it. It was Mando who kept harping on tedd Ginn because he wasn't a true #1 WR. however, he never gave credit for his outstanding return game and some timely receptions and how he almost single handedly won three games for this team. Since then, we still haven't found a weapon like him. Now people are falling for it again.

Just for once I'd love to see Mando the clown and the Herald follow up with as much positive reinforcement for the team as he does criticism after a loss. i swear you'd think the team lost by 30 points here. Last week we don't hear a peep from the Herald for four days after making Rex Ryan cry. I surely hope the front office and the players don't follow this blog as Mando claims they do. it's embarassing.

Mike Pouncey Mid Season all NFL Team:

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-dolphins/dolphins-blog/sfl-mike-pouncey-makes-profootball-weeklys-midseason-allnfl-team-20121106,0,3943822.story

Craig,

I would have agreed with that article...Back in May. The only problem is that it's November & he's struggled this year.

If he's re-signed then we'll know what Philbin thinks right??? Philbin knows a LOT more about O-line play than I do & regardless of Ireland being the GM I'm sure he'll have input when it comes to breaking the bank on a LT.

Yeah, I think worst comes to worst Long gets franchised. We build another year and see where we are then.

Craig,

In all seriousness--do you think Long is playing at a Pro-Bowl level this year???

the game v the Colts doesnt change much in the big picture.....biggest offseason needs are the same, bottom line.....pass rusher, CB, WR/TE......upgrade at safety wouldnt hurt--draft 2 each of the above and/or fill in with 1 top FA--Indy game changes nothing.....Luck is ridiculously good and I'd put him already in the top 10-12 QBs in the league, now......more encouraging for Miami fans is that Tannehill is also good, continues to improve, still needs to get better.....but the kid can play--dont see many Barkley fans around here anymore, do we?

"Yeah, I think worst comes to worst Long gets franchised. We build another year and see where we are then."

DC,

That's a lot of money. We overpaid big time when we did that with Soliai but I kind of understood that b/c we didn't know if he was just a one-year wonder.

Luck is great but Tanney is good? Lets look at facts. Luck was 62.5% for 433 (rookie record) with a 9 YPA average in this game. Tanney, however, in the AZ game - a better defense than Miami's - was 63.5% for 431 yards (2 less than Luck in fewer attempts) with a 10+ YPA average in that game. Tanney's highest rating is a 112 while Lucks is 107. Luck has a receiving corp that makes Miami's look pedestrian. Luck is great and Tanney is good? Only in fairy tales.

RBs, why is that the point? When Long WAS playing at ProBowl level, we were a crappy team. Now he's slowing down, but the team is better. So, one doesn't have anything to do with the other. If Long plays like crap and we go to the Playoffs, WHO CARES?

"....more encouraging for Miami fans is that Tannehill is also good, continues to improve, still needs to get better.....but the kid can play--dont see many Barkley fans around here anymore, do we?'

BPA,

Well said. There's no doubt in mind that this kid is going to be the real deal.

WHRBs,

No he's not playing at a Pro Bowl level.

Listen, you're a good guy and I like discussing this stuff with you, so I don't want my words to come out wrong. Just a couple of weeks ago I read your comments that you were wrong about Wilson, Hartline, Smith and some others. I believe you're wrong about Long too. All I'm saying is, WHY would you be SO definitive about Long EIGHT games into the season? It's the same argument you made with someone else about Tannehill earlier. 8 games and you're ready to get rid of Long. Shouldn't we see how the last 8 games go first?

Even Pouncey was late on some of his blocks. WTH happened?

WHRB, a few games should outweigh four years of stellar play?

And before we start throwing stupid numbers around on what the franchise price will be for LTs can we wait to see how that plays out too. I saw someone throw out the figure of $15 million yesterday. Huh? Where's that number coming from? Thomas is the highest paid right now at $10 mil. The artice I read said the average for LTs in 2012 was $9.4 mil but that number is expected to go down in 2013. To me the WORST case scenario is that Long makes $9 mil next year on a one year deal. I say 'who cares'!

I care, DC Dolfan, for if Long does not play well we will not get to the Playoffs simply because Tannehill won't get there.

Do you ever remember Shula having an ordinary LT? Never.

LGTanney......I wasnt worried about being so precise with my description, and stats are important but dont always tell the real story.....doesnt really matter (to me) as those descriptions ("elite", for example) are overused and meaningless in alot of cases--my point was simply that Tannehill is looking good to very good, better than most thought he would at this point (you can say "great" if you want.....I wouldnt, not yet, but no biggie)--and thats good for Dolphins fans.....Luck, to me, looks incredible for a rookie.....just as he was billed--but thats ok too--both should be good, or great, over time.....hopefully the latter.

I like WHRBs. One of the best posters on here. No question.

I'd just like to get to the REAL reason you don't want Long back. Is it because you want to see that money allocated other places. I have news for all the 'just move Martin over to LT and drat a RT' gang, there is NO guarantee that plan will work out. Ask the Rams about their LT Smith and how that worked out. The Bills have gone through LTs like crazy. Just about EVERY team in the league has issues with the tackle position, including the Steelers and Pats. don't believe me, read some of the local articles on the teams.

"Listen, you're a good guy and I like discussing this stuff with you, so I don't want my words to come out wrong.

Craig,

I'm a Dolphins fan so obviously I hope I'm wrong. Why would I want to be right about a player that has given everything he has from the day he was drafted to this franchise??? You're misunderstanding me if you think I'm questioning his heart or his character b/c that's not the case. I just question whether the injuries have taken their toll on his play.

I hope Jake picks up his play, keeps Tannehill relatively clean w/o allowing the big hits, & the Dolphins keep him until he retires.

WHRB, a few games should outweigh four years of stellar play?

Mark,

You know I didn't say that....

Well, sometimes All of us drop into a funk wherefrom things don't look as they normally are. Fortunately, most People realize this fact and come back to their Reality. That's a Fact. We are sane. Up to now.

"I'd just like to get to the REAL reason you don't want Long back. Is it because you want to see that money allocated other places.

Craig,

There's no 'mystery' reason. I'm worried that we overpay for a player based on past & not present performance.

Obviously finding a solid LT is tough thing to do BUT I think finding a QB is a lot harder. Finally, after too many years that I care to recall, we did that & it's critical to our future success to keep him healthy.

It's pretty simple--If Jake can do that then we should keep him but if he can't I trust that Philbin can find one.

Shula would never have a crap QB like Tannehill.

I swear some people do not remember Damien mcIntosh and some of the jokers we had bridging from Webb to Long. The only one I remember that was decent was Mark Dixon but he was too small to hold up. Long at his worst is still a good player. And make no mistake, it would take years to find a replacement to even match Jake's play at his worst. People are acting like our OL is a swinging gate, well we are a lot closer to the fewest hits allowed on the QB than the most. I just don't get it.

You saying that Tanehill is not sliding in the pocket like Luck did, Shula 73? I wholeheartedly agree with you.

WHRBs, you didn't say those exact words but yet you sthink we should let a four time pro bowler just walk, for nothing, and we would somehow be better off for it.

That logic, I just don't get.

Some of you on this blog overreact yes the defense did not play well but they still were in it at the end of the game. Dansby and Smith both dropped pics it's not the end of the world. The expectations before the season were bleek 1 game will not define a season this team is heading in the right direction we will see what
Philbin does this week preparing for Tennessee. This game and how they bounce will tell you a lot more about this team.

You don't get much, Mark, now do you?

Shula won with all of George Wilsons picks.

Not exactly, Bruce. He added Larry Little, Paul Warfield, Nick Buonicanti among others.

If you don't think Moore should be the starter and that we'd be 6-2 if he were, you are one stupid mothuhfvcker. That is all.

FOR THE DOLPHINS TO COMPETE AND BECOME AFC POWERS NEXT YEAR THERE IS ONE MAN WHO WILL FIT US PERFECTLY(MIKE WALLACE) GO GET HIM HE WILL GIVE US THE DOWN FIELD THREAT WE NEED! ALSO GET ANOTHER COVER CORNERBACK AND FAST PHYSICAL LB AND EVENTUAL REPLACEMENT FOR JAKE LONG AND THIS TEAM EASILY WINS 12-13 GAMES NEXT YEAR! DO NOT DEPEND ON DRAFTING A TOP NOTCH RECEIVER TO COME IN AND SET THE LEAGUE ON FIRE! GET A PROVEN VETERAN FROM A GOOD ORGANIZATION WHO WASN'T TREATED FAIRLY(MIKE WALLACE) CAN YOU IMAGINE WALLACE,HARTLINE,BEST,MOORE! FORGET COLTS GAME THE SECONDARY IS GETTING VALUABLE EXPERIENCE TO WHERE WITH ONE MORE GOOD COVER CB/ A GOOD SAFETY THIS WILL HELP THE PASS RUSH! THE DOLPHINS ARE DEVELOPING AND WITH THE EXCEPTION OF TEXANS THE AFC IS GETTING OLD! ALL THE TOP TEAMS PATRIOTS,RAVENS,STEELERS,CHARGERS,JETS,ETC. ARE ON THE DECLINE SO WITH THAT DOLPHINS HAVE A SHOT TO IMPROVE AND DOMINATE WITH THE RIGHT COMBINATION OF GOOD VETERANS AND GOOD DRAFT PICKS! COME TO THINK ABOUT IT THAT'S WHERE IRELAND HAS DONE A PRETTY RESPECTABLE JOB THE LAST TWO YEARS! DON'T BUY IT! CHECK THE RECORD AFTER THIS SEASON! GO DOLPHINS 10-6!

I see People insult here left and right. We are one civilized Nation, you know?

and yimmy won with all of the vikings pix.
lol

Craig M, how can you be so earnest and wrong at the same time? You try *so hard* only to be wrong on nearly every subject.

ESPN's guys don't watch every snap of every Dolphins game like we local fans do. Long has been bad to horrible 80% of all snaps this year. That is not close to 2nd best in the league.

The pro bowl is a legacy vote, by the way. Kind of like how Dubya got into Yale and then the White House.

Canadian fans 2,000 miles away: yes, Long *has* been a swinging gate on *numerous* snaps every single game this year. I've been pointing it out all year. Actually for 1.5 years, as he was nearly as bad last year.

This loss goes on Tanny's shoulders. 3 pts in the 2nd half is pathetic.

Actually, I need to correct myself. Long is not always a swinging gate. Often he is simply pancaked flat on his back and run over, or he's shoved back into the QB. So I apologize. He's a swinging gate only about 40% of the time.

To me this interview of Coyle just shows how the game has changed,the coaches are practiced in dealing with the media in the era we live in.The interview could have been given by someone in the front office with all the same data Coyle has at his command and a similar type of interview would have been given albeit with the spin of the person being interviewed.The way I see it the other teams throw against the Fins because they have too much trouble running the ball against them.When you get a great offensive performace by a passer against the Dolphins without any turnovers by the complete offense they have a good chance of losing unless they can score enough points on offense to overcome the points they will give up to the team with the great or even excellent performance by the passer.The pass defense needs help from the pass rush.

How was that, King Shula? Say it again.

CD, my TV is just as far from me as yours is.

Second, I've seen more than my fair share of live games

Technology is great isn't it, can get you real up close and watch the game like you're there.

Maybe in your trailer park, they'll get HD soon.

Jake Long = another wasted pick

Isn't HD great! Great innovation(I can even see the infected hair follicles on those Players)(and the minuscule pubic hairs on the Cheerleaders). Now, all we need is 3-D.

I think Tannehill lacks game experience at QB and they dont want to limit the field with him this year while he learns to read defenses in the NFL.Next season Sherman might have more rollout passes from Tannehill where he will only be able to throw to the side he is rolling,they also need a receiver that will get separation 95% of the time and catch the ball whether that means holding on or taking it away from the defenders.Another area they should exploit is passes to the rbs,Im surprised they havent called more of those when you have Reggie Bush on your team.Luck has a talent for avoiding the rush,remember Marino had it to with a combination quick release and that step up he would always do to avoid the pass rusher.

Seems King Shula knows a lot(of Football).

The Fins are on pace to give up 6,000 yards passing this year. Pathetic.

Either I have been watching football and sports all my life and Im analytical and creative or I talk a good game oscar.

You talk a good Game, pal.
