    Dolphins’ Koa Misi: Our defense can be great

    Optimism seems to flowing from everywhere this time of the year. We shall see in the fall.

    We’ll have to wait a few months to find out if the 2013 Dolphins are really a good team. But it’s clear that they think they’re a really good team.
    The latest Dolphin to talk up the team is linebacker Koa Misi, who said he believes the defense will be not just good but great this season.
    We can be great,” Misi told the Miami Herald. “We’ve got a lot of new guys. They’re trying to learn the defense right now. The guys that they brought in to play in this defense and bring it to where we need to be, I think they did a good job in that.”

    Team Bumpus would like to amend "can" to "WILL" in Koa's statement.

    Believe it or not but misi is a good player for us and will only continue to get better! He had a 5.5 sack season and a 3.5 last year, the guy is always around the ball and forced three fumbles also. I think some of us really Need to open our eyes and see what we have, understand that your whole team can't be stars. There will be stars and good players and solid players mixed in on a team. I would hate for him to go to the pats and turn into a rob nincovich type!

    Its certainly possible, if you think about it the only guys guaranteed to be back in the position they played last season are Wake, Starks, Soliai and Jones. If we struck gold with all of of the free agent additions and draft picks then we could have a great D with good depth. The only real concern for me is leadership, hopefully Ellerby is an outspoken leader because outside of him I don't see any real leader types that can get you over the hump from great to elite.

    The blueprint for beating the Patriots is an elite defense supported by an explosive offense, we probably have the explosive offense now (although a youngster like Stedman Bailey certainly would have helped) so the question is how good can this D be?

    He's a good run stopper but an average overall player who doesn't impact the game nearly enough at his position.

    And there's nothing wrong with wanting Filet Mignon instead of settling for Flank steak.

    Oh and this scared mentality about our players going to the Patriots and becoming Hall of Famers needs to die a slow and painful death.

    We get it already, Bill Belicheat can manufacture greatness.

    I love how they leave out the fact that he was asked "What's your view of the defense going into next year? Will the additions come together?"

    Versus him running up OH HEY YALL WE GONNA BE GREAT HELL YEAH MISI OUT *mic drop*

    Yep! Another Patriot fan who wrote the article for Pro Football Talk! Michael David Smith is a Patriot fan and his articles just smell of Patriot bias! He's trying to fire up bulletin board material for his Pats,if any other team said this,he wouldn't have written anything! JUST ANOTHER PATRIOT FLUFFER!!! JAPF!
    The Jarvis Landry ERA has begun!
