    Whats wrong with this defense?

    I see a lot of hate here for sherman and the offense, well warranted. But what is wrong with this defense? It continuously gets pounded up the gut, with on paper, arguably the best front 4 in football with great depth. Our LB's arn't slouches either, talent in the secondary. It continues to under perform week after week. Can't count on them to make a stop against anybody. Unacceptable, call me crazy, but I see Coyle as a bigger problem here than sherman

    The defense is built to stop the pass and does a good job of that. It isn't built to stop the run. Consequently the Dolphins' offense needs to get out to big leads and one-dimensionalize the opposing offense, which it cannot do at this point.

    I'm sorry. Don't say a damn word about the defense. This was all on the ineptitude of the offense.

    Our LBs blow and our secondary is very overrated.

    That said, even though the dfefense didn't play well today, it wasn't the problem.

    Having said that, much is to be desired with Ellerbe and Wheeler. MUCH! Keuchly single handily had a better game than all 3 of the dolphins lbers today.

    Miami offense scored ZERO points. ZERO. This is astoundingly bad.

    Miami defense gave up 19 points. This is unremarkable.

    You can't win games when your offense scores ZERO points.

    Lack of consistent playmakers, which could really be said about this team as a whole.

    The offense was clearly inept....but a defense that gives up a 19 play, 10 minute, 90 yard drive, featuring 14 running plays...covering parts of the 3rd & 4th quarters....deserves more than its share of ridicule.

    Sorry, but our LB's are slouches...and our safeties are nothing special. Jones got his payday at it looks like he is taking the next few years off until the next contract year.
