    Last time I checked our pass D was ranked 27th.

    The special teams have been bad azz and are probably top 5 anyways.

    I find that hard to believe. I know our special teams has been playing insanely well, but our pass defense has been porous.
    Well it makes sense... we are ranked #1 in passing yards given up...isn't that obvious?

    Chicago Bears Defense definitly #1 with the Texans #2. And it shows in their records.
    If Dan Carpenter hits those FGs in overtime then I could see our special teams being rated high.
    But without being clutch in OT, you can't name them #1.

    The Chicago Bears defense has more int's for TD's than the Dolphins have passing TD's.

    Miami sucks at taking the ball away.

    PFF does rank Miami as the #1 D Overall. They rank the Phins as #1 vs the run, #5 in pass rush, #3 in coverage, and #1 in penalties.

    I have always thought it was good to know, and understand, what one was criticizing before doing so. As I do not believe anyone taking shots knows what they are taking shots at, I will try to explain, with the penalty part self explanatory.

    PFF does not grade a D on yardage or big plays given up. They grade every player on the 60-70 plays he is on the field, good, bad, and indifferent. Then, they take that players grade, and add them to other player's grades, to come up with a team's ranking.

    For example, if Jones gives up a 40 yard TD, he gets a very bad grade for that play. However, he may have done well on the other 59 plays or so, and have a good overall game.

    The coverage ranking is based on how well a DB or LB covered a receiver (both are included). If a defender had VG coverage, and a receiver made a VG play, they are not given a negative grade, which makes sense to me.

    This is NOT NFL or ESPN rankings, which are based on yardage and nothing else. It is different, and takes some time to get used to.

    PFF has Dolphins ranked 3rd in Pass Coverage. The only players receiving a negative grade are Karlos Dansby, Nolan Carrol and Jimmy Wilson.

    Miami is listed as #1 D directly above Seattle, Chicago, San Fran and Texans on PFF's Grading System
