    How does Miami defend TEs from now on?

    Obviously they still haven't found an answer to stop TEs from pooping on us... What do they do now?

    Who knows... Tony claims Reshad had a heck of a game.

    And to answer the OP - i expect us to continue doing what we've done for the past 2 years. Let TEs walk all over us. Expect 100-150 Yard 1+TD performance week in week out.

    I don't know that they will be good against TEs, but I think the Pats make it very tough to defend their two TEs. Most teams only have one good receiving TE making it easier to match up. When you throw in Welker and Woodhead it makes it so you can't get very cute with your coverages and you just have to hope your safeties or LBs can cover the TEs. Also if we can get pressure with just 4 or 5 instead of having to send 6 or more it will allow us to bracket the elite TEs with a LB and a S.

    TE's are the big issue. It seemed that everytime brady needed a first down, a TE was open with room to run. It needs to be fixed.

    Coverage is all technique and effort..Sapp was poor last game with this..Yes he was burned more than once on effort alone...

    If teams are still throwing the ball down the seam in the middle of the field maybe we should start double the top flight tight ends.. Or at least play robber in the middle of the field...If Sean Smith and Vontae are so good they should be able to handle Wr's on the outside..

    Can Jones effectivley fill the role of robber? or maybe Bell can..

    Clemons is hurt from what i heard.

    Best way to stop the other teams TE would be to play them Man to Man with a LBer with a zone over the top.

    you do realize that most teams dont have TWO TEs like gronkowski and hernedez, right? They might not shut down every teams TEs but they definately wont be as bad against other teams TEs

    Doesn't help we were giving everyone 10 yard cushions. What's the deal with that....? Even when blitzing our corners are super far off..I dont get it.
