To this point during this endless off-season, after FA, thedraft, and information from camp, it seems we have a lot to look forward to, aswell as the normal injury bad news to try to figure out we seem to be gettingeach year now.
Losing Pouncey is going to hurt, especially if you considerhow our schedule begins this year, but there also so many things to lookforward too this coming preseason, that if most clicks right, and Miami get atleast someone serviceable at center, this team is going to be fun.
As far as I am concerned, the way the DBs have been looking,Tannehill and Wallace finally starting to hookup, how the WRs are looking(Especially the one player that has me most excited to see…. Landry) , and evenMiller so far are things that have me very excited, but there is one group thathas me the most excited to watch this coming pre-season, and that would be theD-line.
The D-line will needto prove themselves against the run, and hopefully by some miracle having Misiin the middle will help dramatically against the run, but this group this yearI believe are going to be a terror pass-rushing. Word out of camp is thatplayers like Wake is back to his unstoppable ways, Vernon is showing last year was far from afluke, Jordan finally healthy is getting nothing but rave reviews of peoplethat have watched him, and finally Shelby after working his butt off thisoff-season looks to be in the best shape he has ever been. This is a formidablegroup pass-rushing without doubt, but then you have to consider that in themiddle Miami will have, Starks, Maimibest all-around DT that has proven to be tough very disruptive in the middle, OdrickMiami most athletic pass-rushing DT, and Mitchell who also can be a pain pass-blocking.This is without speaking about Rookies like Fede and Johnsonwho have also been talked about pretty well in camp.
This D-line I going to have to be better against the run, butagainst the pass, this group may be known as the passrushers of the Apocalypse very soon and Iam extremely excited to see how they do.
If our DBs play even average, our pass defense should be ridiculous. We should bring huge pressure without having to blitz. Remind me, doesn't Brady struggle against that?

At LB, Misi was VG as always. Ellerbe and Wheeler were just horrible. At safety, Jones and Clemons had a big drop in run support.
FWIW, Wheeler did bring good pressure on the QB, and was the only one other than the DL
