    Imagine what Fred could have done in today's game with everything so spread out, he doesn't get the respect he deserves my most people.

    Again, as I said in my previous posts, every scheme will have flaws and general sweeping statements will make you look a bit foolish in usage. At the highest levels, you should operate under the assumption that EVERY scheme employed by EVERY coach is tweaked. They don't scheme out of a textbook. It's a philosophy more than exact cookie cut science - I'm sure you are aware and can appreciate that.

    With that said, we can ONLY use the one year we employed it with OUR personnel and OUR coaches - we got great success, yardage be damned.

    With the improved depth and personnel we have on defense this season, if we end up ranked 10-15th overall in points allowed but bottom 5 in yardage I will be happy and consider it a success just like I consider last season a success considering our personnel.

    Sorry bud, I know you're very informed on this stuff, but I'm not interested to talk about the history of football... if you want to talk about this topic intelligently, then intelligence would suggest we use our own team, own personnel, own scheme, own results as our example. If we do that, we have just the one year sample size and it gave us a pleasant result.

    There are other schemes that offer flexibility and versatility for game planning vs different types of offenses. Ours scheme is static.

    It was either that or a pic of someone screaming nonsense with their fingers in their ear. Both we're appropriate responses to your post.

    You're exhausting sometimes. Speaking of appropriate, try to address my actual post with your responses next time instead of "hurr hurr *posts random twitter person talking about coaching*"

    Take a gander thru my post history. I've spoken in copious amounts about our defense. Your post(s) is nothing I haven't addressed numerous times and is brings nothing new to the table I haven't touched on before.

    And that's not some random twitter person, it's a 6 yr NFL veteran of the offensive line.

    It's too late but I felt we should have drafted TJ Watt. The game he had to speaks volume. I hope Harris at least make some kind of impact this season.

    Yeah. Square peg.....round hole.

    You'd be asking him to do completely different things that he did which made him successful as a player. Watt isnt a 3 point stance Defensive end. Wasn't a fit for Miami. Harris was.

    I have to strongly disagree. This defense could not get off the field consistently. We had 1.088 plays on defense in 2016 (including penalties), which is good (or bad) for 31st. Only the Niners have had more plays on defense. Two major reasons for that: 1. We had the worst run defense, allowing 4.8 yards per run play. 2. We gifted the other teams the most 1st downs by penalty in the league (41).

    I don't know how anyone would consider this a "great success".

    This but he's a stand up player and has never played off the los lb which makes that all projection based. Safer bet is what he was drafted for 34 olb

    He doesn't rush in a 3 or 4 point stance either which is what Miami asks for of its edges in the sub.

    Our defense in a vacuum was horrible... but in context of our talent and depth (specifically in the back 7) then having the 19th best scoring defense and consistently creating timely turnovers would be considered a "success" in my book.

    I'm still upset about not drafting Myles Jack. 14 tackles 8 solo and gave 3 players CTE vs the Texans

    What do you think of Todd Wash and the Jaguars defense philosophy ? Jaguars following the Broncos model of getting big names in free agency and drafting well.

    If Harris could develop his pass rushing skills on par to Yannick Ngakoue by year 3, I'd feel a lot better about the pick; Yannick had a sack in 2.28 sec which is the type of skill your going to need if your a 3rd down specialist.

    I'm trying to figure is that the result of a great rushing technique or just really poor blocking by the tackle? The tackle seems off balance and not set to take on the rusher.

    He soften the edge by chopping the tackles punch, which made the LT off balance. Definitely skill.

    He doesn't show his hands early, LT punches he chops again, same result.

    Only thing that game did was give Duane brown more leverage

    Doesn't help that tom savage is an absolute statue

    I'm sure they will make getting Brown a deal a priority this week. though he wouldn't have made a difference as far the games outcome.

    It's only week 1 and there's enough bad o line play and lack of quality depth out there to ruin seasons short of top shelf defenses hiding the exposures.

    I'm pretty sure Miami can't afford a tackle injury. It's not as dire as the starting nickel lbs health but it's damn close.

    I haven't really watched their defense as of late and haven't had any time to watch any of Sunday's games yet.
