The best way to make our pass defense better is to get another stud pass rusher. In this league with the pussy rules they have for the DBs now, a pass rush is your best defense against the passing game.

WERNER!!!!!!

Opposite of Wake.............

Double Wake and leave Werner one on one.

Double Werner and leave Wake one on one.

Pick your poison is the way I see that.

Then you have Shelby to plug into the rotation.

Get monster LB or two and WOW!!!!!!!

Now that I think about it I would do as much as possible on the Offensive side of the ball in FA and draft DE, LB, Secondary, O-linemen and depth.

In yards per play, my old trusted evaluator:

Rushing offense: 19th
Rushing Defense: 10th
Passing offense: 22nd
Passing defense: 19th

Mediocrity abounds, but it appears that the passing offense should be the biggest priority.

Yep. Followed with a tie between passing defense and rushing offense. This is where Ireland will decide to go with another running back because we haven't been getting productivity.

I think part of the reason Miami's offense, rushing and passing is so poor is the line play. 5 years later and it's still about the line. I don't care for Bush that much either. He's not the type of back that I want as my top back. He put up decent numbers last year and was starting to this year until he got whacked in the third game. He was never the same after that. He seemed to run tentatively. I'd prefer if Miami actuallly drafted a play making back that's 220 pounds to 230 pounds. Danielle Thomas doesn't look like he's going to develop.

I think they work hand in hand. When you have a CB who will take the ball away even good QB's have to be careful. That gives Wake et al time to get there. Now Brady whips the ball so fast no pass rush gets to him. But we used hit him regularly enough to win games. I think that's because he had to wary of our secondary.

Well, I think the whole secondary stinks. It wasn't just the Pro Bowl WRs that made them look like the proverbial primates attempting intercourse with a football; no, even ordinary journeymen WRs made them look foolish too!!!

Yeah, I know the pass rush was abysmal, but when you are that far OUT OF POSITION to even have a slim-to-none-chance of defending the pass, all hope is lost IMHO!

I am sure Ireland thinks all is well, and a few tweaks are all that is needed to turn this secondary into a SB winning assembly, but it t'aint so IMO.

This is one of those instances where a full cleansing with a nuclear blow torch may be the best way to go. Just to make sure none of the bad DB stink remains behind to foul the new secondary!

Yeah, that was tongue in cheek, but not by as much as some may think!!!

:D

One great shutdown CB would totally change this defense. Too bad it wasn't Vontae Davis.

Speaking of Vontae (week 17's defensive player of the week, BTW), I find this interesting:

In 10 games, Vontae had 51 tackles, 8 passes defensed, 3 INTs and a sack.

In 16 games, Sean Smith had 59 tackles, 12 passes defensed, 2 INTs and no sacks.

I know, I know...Vontae was a cancer. But I can't help wondering if we got rid of the wrong starting corner?

I also can't help wondering how we got hosed on Fireland's two trades this season and yet he still has a job??
