    Does it seem weird that the dolphins have been in the top 5 in pass D (avg./gm) for the AFC 4 out of the last 5 years ?

    He didn't give up touchdowns because he was extremely conservative in his coverages - not sure if that was a result of scheme or personnel, but he was CONSTANTLY getting beat underneath. They may not have "credited" him with giving up passes underneath, but that doesn't matter to me - if you watched the games, he had a lot of balls caught underneath his zones. Furthermore, he didn't add anything to a defense that didn't create many turnovers.

    He is going to most likely start this season and that's okay, I don't expect him to be a glaring weakness on our team. But just to reiterate what I said in my previous post, he is not a starting caliber safety on an *elite* defense. That doesn't make him a bad player, not everyone is going to the Pro Bowl.

    Look, those stats are nice as a supplement. They are not an end all, be all. Chris Clemons is not a problem, but last season, he was not the solution either. I expect and I hope he improves next season... but judging him based on his output last season (by watching the games, watching the tape, and not the stats), he was more like top 30-40 safety (which is to say, not the worst, but far from the best).
    I have to admit, I didn't see the underneath stuff and I've watching every game on All-22 Atleast 4 or five times... I'm going to have to take a closer look, maybe you're right!

    Keep this name in my mind for Mini-camps and training camps - Kelcie McCray.. He might start this season ahead of Clemons.

    I believe there is going to be some talented cap cuts coming available cheap, and we do have some cash to spend. I could see a safety, maybe a vet LB for depth, and a young DT if one comes available.

    A little help at safety, otherwise we are good on defense IMO.

    Wel, the defence looks pretty good on paper. Now they need to actually execute out on the field. We need to improve our pass rush which is why they drafted Jordan. He has potential but he still needs to go out there and do it in the games. If the pass rush can be consisten then the rest of the defence will be much better for it.

    Ozzy rules!!

    DT is important for next year with Starks and Soliai both potential high priced FA's. We may well lose both, leaving only Odrick, and a need in the rotation for 2 players. Rookie DT's are seldom ready their first year. I can see this on Irelands shopping list.
