"Those are things. Everything's a fad. Everything's a scheme. Everything's a play. It's really no different than the run and shoot, it's no different than the option, it's no different than the power game. It's just another part of the game. The ball has to be advanced, and you're trying to align and prevent the advancement of the ball. It's just one more scheme. It's one more thing and the things you have to be prepared to do. It's the same thing defensively"

I think we will be ready.
Fair enough, but very wrong. No different then the run and shoot? Really? I mean Really? I have heard some of the smartest fans in my life that really know X's and O's on here but you just lowered the bar for your own people. I have gained enough respect for the people on here to allow them to talk sense into you and I will just leave it alone.

Re: Dolphins - wildcat

He isn't calling it the run and shoot you Dork, He's saying it's like any other Fad or Scheme that you have to prepare for to prevent. Eventually it's all about stopping the advancement of the Ball.

So maybe you need to go back to reading comprehension class and stop trolling over here. I don't need your crap. Again Stop and READ the quote.

Hey FinFan, what MIA board do you post on?
That's exactly how we need to stop it. As long as we don't over pursue, and everyone keeps there containment, I think we'll be just fine stopping the wildcat. How many times do you think they're actually going to go to this formation? 10 times at most in opinion. Going back to the Florida/Tennessee game (I know it's just college), but we can always bring Harper up and use him like Monte Kiffin did Berry during that game. It's all about discipline. Also if we get out to a big lead, their wildcat will be useless. Just play Saints ball and their wildcat will be an afterthought.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Dolphins - wildcat

Relax fellahs.... we stopped the wildcat cold already with Philly ... the Fins may have slightly better RBs ... although Westbrooks ain't no slouch himself.... but I do like FF's point about the Fins getting down on their knees praying for bad weather ... If you gotta pray for anything for some kind of edge, GAME OVER! The Fins will be smoking Ricky Williams' peace pipe before the game is over.

Re: Dolphins - wildcat

Wish we could see more of the other teams fans like FF here. As FF stated we also are not that far behind them with the running game so they will have to recognize that as well as us. We are going to have to find a way to get Brown on the ground and not make those 40 + yard runs. I also think the Dolphins are underrated this year and have not been given much respect. Their offensive and defensive lines are tough and far from a walk in the park for us. We have great runners in our division that we have been dealing with and have burnt us in the past but also have caused us to prepare more to stop the running game. The difference this year of course is Sharper, Greer, and Porter who can take away the long ball and put eight in the box. Looks like an old time smash mouth game that will say a lot about which defense is the real deal.

YouTube - Ronnie Brown Highlights

Just about any RB can run the wildcat and if thatís your main/base offense Ė See Colts games vs Miami Ė Iíll say no more. When the Dolphins are down 14 or 21 to 3 or 0 your wildcat will be tamed and the Dolphins will have to play catch up which means passing the ball and I donít think the Dolphins O-line is that good in protection. The wildcat will only take you so far.

I see your point and I did misread his post so I stand corrected.
