    Despite the fact he has played well this season he gets a lot of hate on here but I thought he was a beast today, the guy had a brilliant game. What did you guys think of his performance today?

    He was easily the best LBer today. He was flying around all day. He looks a lot better in the 4-3 then 3-4 in my opinion. Isn't he our leading tackler? Thats what you want to see out of your MLB. Keep it up Dansby!

    Yup I'm on the Dansby bandwagon. He's the captain of our defense.

    i know this post is about Dansby but i think Misi played a hell of a game as well this scheme really fits our whole defense and Misi now seems like a solid draft pick

    Yea. I've been hard on him also. Maybe he wasn't in shape in the beginning again. He's been playing really well the last two games.

    Agreed. I thought Misi was all over the place today. All the LB's played great.
    In fact the whole D was awesome today.

    All our LBers are good, and they all take some crap. Dansby is probably a little overpaid, but he has been a rock this year, and we wouldn't be leading the league in run defense this year if as a unit our LBers weren't very good by NFL standards. They get a lot of crap because they don't shut down elite TE's but VERY few LB's can cover those guys. You have to get a good DB on them to shut them down.

    What I like about Misi, is he flat stops guys. if he gets his mitts on a runner it's over. Guys don't bounce off of him, they go down.

    This is the best Miami Dolphins starting Linebacker Corp in a long time. They are playing tremendous football!

    He had another massive game today, he is so important to our D! In his determination to get the ball he nearly broke Bradford's neck!

    The change in coordinator and scheme has been huge for him.

    He gets a lot of hate because of his paycheck but his play is much more consistent and vital to the teams success than Jake Long who is basically stealing money from Ross at this point.

    agree on Misi, but the first big running game was his fault

    He was a beast; maybe he was trying to impress Zach.

    I thought he was going to break Bradford in half on that goaline play.

    Really like our LB's , especially Dansby beating up RB's in the first 5 yards in coverage taking them out of the play.

    He got alot of hate because he came into last year out of shape and took several games for him to get into decent football shape. They also didn't like how he sticks up for veteran players and how he disagreed with Philbin in regards to Ocho. However I'm a big time Karlos Dansby fan and I know how key he is to our defense and it turns comical when people watch a TE beat us down the field and they wanna cut Dansby because of his paycheck. The man does so many things on defense . . . you could argue that he is the glue that makes everything stick at this point and he has turned it on as the MLB in this 4-3 defense.

    He's playing to match what we paid him, or at least coming close to it, so he gets my respect and thanks.

    The way he came into camp last season, I really questioned his heart. I certainly don't question it righ tnow.

    Dansby is doing what he was brought here to do. Thats blitz and get to the QB and lead the team with toughness and courage. Remember, he replaced Zach Thomas who hardly ever got to the QB. Not taking anything from Zack - he was a hell of a LB for many years.

    He actually replaced Ayodele, who replaced Zach. Ayodele was a terrible linebacker.

    just would like to see dansby get some of the turnovers or sacks he talked about this season with the new defense, but im still not knocking anything about his play this week, i thought stafford didnt get in
