Jimmy is a beast.


I think Julio Jones was going to do the same thing last week.




I'm not suggesting he won't go off, but its not a forgone conclusion. I will say this, Miami always seems to have problems with TEs.

I would take Graham out of the game. Its going to be up to Coyle to implement a design that stalls their passing game.

Jimmy and Sproles are going to be the two players that will do the most damage. I just don't see us stopping either at all but I just hope we slow them down enough to keep the scores close.

Unfortunately we have never been able to stop the Tight end so it's almost inevitable that Jimmy will dominate but if we stop Sproles and their receivers to a degree then I think we can win this game.

With Wake most likely not playing, Dion will be needed to be primarily a pass rushers and hopefully put enough pressure on Brees to create some turn overs.

I wouldn't consider doing it across the whole of the field.

It might be something to consider in the red zone so that it's harder for Brees to simply toss up easy jump balls.

His pass rush is his forte? You guys act like he wasn't used as a nickel corner in college. You guys do know he could cover the slot in college. He could cover TEs and and Wrs.

It would be a great strategy since they are only expecting Dion Jordan to rush the passer.

Thank you. Nice to have someone acknowledge he wasn't a pure DE in college. He has the height, build, and speed to match up. We have no other player that does....meaning Jimmy would tie up two players. Plus Dion was a TE so he should have an understanding of the routes that would be run and how to deny/cover them.

Anyhow, just an idea.

By that logic.....we should let Tannehill split out from time to time and Daniel Thomas play some QB....I mean if we are going by what they also did in college...

Daniel Thomas sends Tannehill, who has lined up at receiver in motion, throws a quick screen behind the line and then Tannehill throws to Dion Jordan for a touchdown Shocked

think we're missing something here though,

Dion may be talented enough to cover one of the league's premier guys

but has he done any man coverage in the pros? in training camp? Yes he's done zone drops but those are very different. He'll be out of practice, footwork off etc etc. All things that lead to your man getting open enough to make a play

I think everyone here is giving Dion too much credit. All I see is a talented athlete will a limited arsenal of pass rushing moves. I also do not like his demeanor. He seems too calm. Football is a game of emotion. I want to see him get a sack and see what he does after wards.

Coaching and weight gain will improve most of the issues...again his development at Oregon was poor as he wasn't really a defensive end. Fortunately the Dolphins have one of the best Defensive line coaches in the NFL (development of Starks, Soliai, and futher development of Wake) to improve those areas. I'm not sure what you mean by demeanor as he seems explosive and violent is what moves he does know...
