    Dolphins Notebook: Miami preparing for Buffalo RB C.J. Spiller

    Dolphins DC Kevin Coyle admitted his team had few answers for Tennessee RB Chris Johnson last week. That's why he's so concerned with what he sees when he watches film of Buffalo RB C.J. Spiller.
    “They have speed unlike most guys in the league, both Johnson and Spiller, in that you practice against it, yet when you see it for the first time in a game it's a little bit different,” Coyle said. “Sometimes it takes some getting used to -- the speed of the game, so to speak, but we can't waste any time getting used to it here this week. We have to be prepared to go out there and I think we'll do a better job. We started working on it here this afternoon.”
    Johnson snapped Miami's streak of 22 consecutive games without allowing a 100-yard rusher as he gashed the Dolphins for 126 yards and a touchdown in a 37-3 win last week. Spiller will offer a similar challenge when Miami (4-5) travels to play Buffalo (3-6) on Thursday at 8:20 p.m. ET.
    The former Clemson star has rushed for 632 yards with four touchdowns while hauling in 28 catches for 297 yards with one score.
    “Our margin of error is so small and now we've put our backs up against the wall,” Coyle said. “But I believe in these guys and I know that we can come out of this thing and we plan to give it our best shot here on Thursday night.”

    Spiller is Buffalo's main offensive threat so we better prepare for him.

    I'm not trying to start a firestorm here but Coyle has been coaching scared the last couple of weeks. He has the DBs playing 10 yards off the LOS and backpedaling at the snap so they don't get burned deep. If the front 4 doesn't contain Spiller he's going to get huge chunk yards cause I have a feeling Coyle is going to have the DBs playing 10 yards off again to keep Steve Johnson from getting deep.

    It's always a good thing when your DC says "uummm well we don't have an answer for him".

    Gives you that warm fuzzy feeling going into the game on a short week.

    You know it is almost like Coyle said,"We are not supposed to be this good." Now he plays thinking we will not be able to hang with the other team instead of saying,"whatever you got I got something better."

    Couldn't stop CJ, what makes anyone think we can stop Spitler.
