Coyle indeed deserves credit. I have my eyes on Stanford though. I looked at tapes of him in the preseason after the Dolphins signed him and I think thes guy has starter potential. I actually like his upside more than I do Carroll or Wilson. He looks like a young Will Allen.
Just an FYI, becuase I find this interesting. Here are the season totals for interceptions by our corners and safties since 2008 (notice it decreased every year of the past regime):
2012: 6 (so far)
I will give props to Jones! What a turn around this kid has had! Besides Tannehill he is the single biggest surprise of the year to me! I was worried when the team cut Bell that there were two unproven safeties that need major improvements. Now we only have one in Clemons. Clemons needs to go, period.

I would not be surprised if Miami goes FS in the 1st round.
They have done a nice job..But the Qb's we faced have been lack luster...Kevin Kolb torched us..on the bright side tho the next good qb we face will be Tom Brady on 12/2..
The rest are rookies, unproved or just has been/never were type qbs...
I'm so surprised that this team is playing so well and we have 5 picks in the first 3 rounds
Our secondary has been overacheiving, but I will credit that to Coyle. He is doing some interesting things scheme wise to stop the short passes, and leaving our safeties to cover the longer passing routes. I think we owe our suceess to scheme, although Sean Smith has played better too, but he needs to do it every week.
