Dolphins Must Stop Saints’ Graham
 
In next Monday’s battle of undefeated teams on ESPN, I think we can expect to see a high intensity, high scoring football game. Both Miami and New Orleans have figured out their offenses and have put up points in their past couple games. While attacking both quarterbacks and making plays in the secondary will be crucial, this game will undoubtedly come down to who can score more when it matters most. While both offenses are potent and possess both speed and talent, the one advantage the Saints have over Miami is at the tight end position, where they boast one of the league’s best in Jimmy Graham.

If you know Dolphins’ football, then you know how much the defense strugglse against good tight ends. Take for example last year’s duo of Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski, who shredded Miami’s secondary on two separate occasions. Granted, Miami’s secondary and defense as a whole is much improved, but they still have their bad moments against tight ends, and Graham is scary good. Through just 3 games this season, Graham already has 23 receptions for 358 yards and 4 TD’s. The Dolphins as a team have 4 total TD receptions thus far. You get the point. Graham is a beast and is easily Drew Brees’ favorite target.

Look for Miami to double team Graham at times and to constantly put pressure on Brees to prevent him from acquiring a rhythm. While Graham is a great player, he is the lone superstar receiver the Saints have (although Colston is pretty darn good too). Shutting down Graham will help Miami manage what is an extremely dangerous gold and black offense. If we can figure out how to slow down we won’t be able to completely stop them the big TE and Brees – completely stopping them is almost impossible, then Miami will find itself in another winnable game, and a chance at 4-0.

FINS UP!

"although Colston is pretty darn good too" ?
Thats nice of them.
although Don Shula is pretty darn good too.

This year is odd, where its similar to 2009.
we lost to Dolphins in preseason then, went 3-0, then played unbeaten teams in a row, swept the falcons like we are going to again.

Excuse me, but who exactly expects Miami to score a lot of points?!? That's absurd.

If no one has stopped graham yet by putting a fast cover lb, a cover safety, or a really good cover corner on him, i highly doubt Miami will get it done. Hell, they don't even have their best rush lb, so pressure on drew will come by a lil harder.

I started laughing at " high scoring football game"... The Saints will score a lot but I guess they forgot about the 4th best Defense in yards and scoring in the NFL....

That's right we have the 4th best Defense in yards and points... can you guys believe that???

Still a lot of games left to play.. I dnt know if I rather the d we have now (low scoring low yards) or the 09 d (bend but don't brake more turnovers and turnovers converted into points)

We get healthy we could scare a lot of people

This thread sounds exactly like the thread about the cardinals having to stop jimmy last week.
