You're right about Kevin Coyle. Our defense was by far the best unit on the field today. You take away that BS 'fumble recovery' on the punt and they gave up just ten points against an explosive offense, while missing a starting CB. Just a fantastic performance from the D.
"Society became divided into camps in which no man trusted his fellow. To put an end to this, there was neither promise to be depended upon, nor oath that could command respect; but all parties dwelling rather in their calculation upon the hopelessness of a permanent state of things, were more intent upon self-defence than capable of confidence." - Thucydides, probably predicting the rise of internet message boards
The idiotic team rushes 19 times for 80 yards (Cincinnati). Very familiar during the Marino era.
My only beef during the game was 14 minutes remaining and Dolphins take over. Instead of basic formations and imposing ourselves physically we seemed determined to forfeit advantage by lining up in an empty set on first down. Empty sets are masochistic at this stage of development, and when you have the lead. Far too much chance the opponent senses vulnerability and begins to attack. Empty sets are for Brady and Rodgers deep into their career.
Obviously, Clay running out of bounds was also a beef. That's a sensible bootleg play call to steal a cheap game ending first down but the recipient has to grasp the necessity to stay in bounds for 40 vital seconds. Cincinnati gained 8-10% greater opportunity to win the game at 1:50ish than 1:10ish.
wasn't impressed with the offense or the play calling besides tannehill. the defense backs played surprisingly well.
I`m very intrigued at how Gaffney can boost the offense bringing more space for hartline, bess, fasano. it may be the missing ingredient !!!!! fingers crossed
