Ok fellow Dolfans, I know I'm not alone here, but I did have some doubts about a rew of our players before yesterdays game.
1. Cameron Wake- I did not see this guy producing much for this team. I saw this as another wasted roster spot as he has not been active before the Bills game. WOW did he produce!!!! 3 sacks in his first showing.
2. Chad Henne- While i never talked negative about our guy, I also never had a lot of confidence in him. While he didn't have a lights out game, he did not turn the ball over.He was solid in his first start, and I believe he will only get better. Monday night will be a true test for Henne. But overall Great job from our man!!!!
3. Secondary- they still did not do an amazing job, they held a good WR corps in check. They seem to be getting better. Wilson still needs to learn how to tackle. Smith and Davis did a superb job, with Davis grabbing a pick 6. I did do a lot of smack talking about our secondary the past few weeks, and I must say, over all, they did come to play yesterday. Crow eaten.
Man I'm full from eating all this crow. Great win yesterday. GO DOLPHINS!!!!
Thanks "Disturbedshifty" for the awesome sig.
good job ... this is the exact reason why i dont make an assuption until i see some one play and play consistently. Im not ready to crown him a probowler yet...but its a good start
HOTTEST OWNERS IN THE GAME!!!
Just for perspective sake, Davis's pick6 was great, but without it -or without a Fins win for that matter, today we'd be griping about the 2 big receptions Evans made on him.
BTW nobody said he was a PBer they simply said he was too good for the CFL...
Way to step up, friend. We're only human, ya know?
I think your point about Henne and turnovers is a valid one... He didn't get too excited in game one and played under control... The big arm guys always tend to throw untimely picks (is there such a thing as a 'timely' pick?) So controlling the Turn overs is gonna be key for him... Good opener.
Wake was a beast in the CFL... Those of us like RevKev who were saying it... Were saying it from a perspective of having seen that kid play up there... He was ALWAYS double teamed and most often TRIPLED... In the great white north... I have always said that this 'level of competition' argument was bunk... A player is a player... Cam wake... IS A PLAYER.
Tks for the thread.
