YouTube - Ronnie Brown Highlights
brian westbrook is one of the leagues best

brandon jacobs and ahmad bradshaw are a nasty combination

thomas jones and leon washington were spoken very highly of by jets fans

fred jackson is not a name known to all but he is a pretty talented back and should get some more recognition as he garners more touches

kevin smith is one of the most underrated players in the entire leage.....while not on ronnie browns level, he is still talented

we have played running backs that are just as talented as ronnie brown and we have gone up against offensive lines far more talented than the dolphins

i must admit im a tad bit nervous about the wildcat offense but i think it will be phased out quickly when the dolphins offense needs to play catch up because their defense cant stop us

"deal with it or you can go play the saints and get trounced by 30 and you won't have to worry about it."-colin cowherd

You have defiantly played some good backs but non of them is at Ronnies level imho.Westbrook was a couple of years ago but not anymore. Kevin Smith is underrated I agree with you there, in fact I have him on my fantasy league.

I think Ronnie and Ricky are the best duo in the league. Before the bye last week They were 2 and 13 in yards with Ronnie being tied for 1st in td's.

Re: Dolphins - wildcat

I understand Rickey is undergoing some new unique and top secret motivational training in order to get prepared for his former employer...

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.

I didn't say I was praying for bad weather I was just reporting what the forecast is for Sunday and while Brees is ridiculously accurate he's not know for a powerful arm so some of his passes might get hung up in the wind. Henne on the other hand does have a very strong arm and may not affect is passes as much. By the way I am in the way comparing Henne to Brees. The only qb at Drews level is Manning and maybe Brady but I give the edge to Brees in that match up.

The way I see it weather is just part of the game so if the rain helps us I'm fine with that. One thing I would never hope for is a team to have a major injury coming into a game or during a game.

Re: Dolphins - wildcat

make no mistake about it, the saints are undefeated because of their turnover ratio. if the saints turn the ball over it could keep the underated dolphins in the game, but if the dolphins turn it over its game over.

Re: Dolphins - wildcat

Its not like the Fins will strickly run the Wildcat all game. We didnt play very well against the Iggles when they ran it but I do expect our D to really practice hard against it this week. It will be one of our main focuses this week. If we can go up early again this Sunday, I expect to force them to throw as we have done to several teams thus far.

Re: Dolphins - wildcat

What I think we're going to see is the same thing that the Dolphins did against the other two teams that Henne has started against.
Fins will come out trying to force the Saints to respect our passing game. If we can get some yards through the air then it keeps your defense from crowding the line of scrimmage. If we can keep your safeties from cheating up towards the line then we'll try running at you.
Yeah I know...easier said than done, but that's what I believe we can expect to see.
The flip side is that I would expect your defense to challenge Henne early and try to rattle him into some bad decisions. It may work, it may not. Only time will tell. I won't be surprised in the least if your defense pressures him into a bad performance. However, don't be shocked if Henne actually stands up to it and has a good day.
I'm not the guy to make predictions, but I do like our chances on Sunday.

i wouldnt be surprised to see this kind of approach either.....but if henne turns the ball over it might be game over......hes not a rookie but he has made some rookie mistakes and i wouldnt be surprised to see darren sharper feasting on some henne ducks
