    The wildcat has been the greatest thing has happened to our rushing offense. Today's performance (as well as our performance against IND) has been nothing short of phenomenal. WAY TO GO MIAMI!

    With Polite, Bess, and Camarillo, I can see why we're doing well converting 3rd & 4th downs.

    Theoretically we should not be able to be stopped now. If defenses key in to stop the run Henne should be able to beat them over the top.

    As long as we don't face very fast defenses like the ravens, it will work. We should keep doing it as long as it works.

    No, we are second on the entire NFL, just behind the Titans(like 3 yards behind), but we and the Titans have a huge advantage over the third one (new orleans saints 70 yards above).

    We are also the second on the NFL on rushing defense just behind the Ravens, we are the BEST on the NFL in Time of posesion and one of the best on third down conversions. This team is looking like a Contender, we just need our secondary to learn and improve and solid QB play, it is really a shame that we lost that game to the Colts, I think that could end up being the difference between us and the f***ing Patriots.

    Very tough game to swallow indeed. We gotta make up for it by winning a game we're not supposed to win.

    I loved how Bills fans were saying before the game how they would shut down our running game because they only had one bad quarter letting teams run on them this year (the 4th against the saints).

    250 yards rushing on you today Bills fans.

    250 YARDS !

    250 Yards !!!

    :lol:

    We just need some WR help cuz our WR dont get much seperation from watching them today or don't have the IQ when the play is dead to keep running except for Bess.

    You're wrong. Tennessee was behind us coming into the day and only gained 95 rushing yards, so they're WAY behind us now. We're #1 by a substantial margin -- not quite 20 ypg above the second-best team.

    Also, we became the number one rushing defense. The Ravens gave up 85 yards rushing to the Patriots. We gave up 42. We were only 2 yards per game behind them.

    Running well, stopping the run, and dominate time of possession are all "Parcells" hallmarks.

    And know it seems like we're getting back on track in terms of turnover ratio...if that trend continues, Miami is going to win more games than it loses.

    If someone would have told me before the season that we would have the best rushing offense and defense after week four I would have though that we would be at least 3-1.

    If we can achieve success with the WILDFIN vs Ravens then we have come full circle as it being an effective package. The Green slimey airplanes are a test too. Hate to admit it but that ugly Green Slime is a fast defense. Its about execution and discipline when it comes to an effective WILDFIN.

    This running game we got is great, Chad Henne is gonna do good since he can rely on it to back him up, we run down that clock and play defense like we did today and we're gonna be a hard team to beat, I don't care who we're playin

    We could easily be 3-1, we dominated today, had the game in our hands against Indy, and against San Diego it seemed like after Pennington went down the game plan went from trying to win the game to trying to get Henne comfortable with the game, let's see if we can turn things around, big game monday night against Dirty Sanchez and the God Damn Jets

    Rush Offense -
    Rank Team --YPG ----YPC ----TOT
    1 Miami -----183.5 ---5.0 -----734
    2 NO -------166.2 ----5.0---- 665
    3 Dallas -----163.8 ---6.0 -----655

    Rush Deffense -
    Rank Team --YPG -YPC ---TOT
    1 Baltimore -59.5 --2.6 ---238
    2 Miami ----61.0 --2.9 ----244
    3 San Fran -73.8 --3.1 ----295

    These are the totals, not including tonight's game (Steelers/Chargers) or the Monday Night game (Pakcers/Vickings). Btw, Vickings are averaging 143.7 yards (offensively) per game and the Steelers are giving up 76.7 yards (defensively) per game.

    I believe that you are what your record says you are, but its just about obvious that we are the best 1-3 team out there. I dont know about you guys, but I am not ready to throw in the towel on this season yet.

    ya i dont think anyone is now after today. that being said, we still must win against the jets, bc thats the diffrence of being 2-0 in division play and 1 game back of the jets, compared to being 1-4 overall, and being 3 games behind the jets with already losing head to head. hopefully we get porter back and him with cam wake and jt can destroy sanchez all night. so pumped for that game.

    Other teams have been throwing alot because of the rookies in the secondary ... once Davis and Smith are fully acclimated it's going to be harder for teams to throw, and the defense should improve overall... last season, Miami was having problems early on against the pass, than all of a sudden, it was lights out and the defense became much more solid... At 1st i thought the run defense was good because of the amount of times the other teams were throwing against the young corners... but the Bills game has convinced me, that other teams are actually trying to run and just can't get the push in the run game they are expecting... kudos to the D-line and LB's they are ATTACKING the RB's ... once the secondary settles down and the missed tackles are minimized, the 2009 defense should become more dominate... a BP staple i may add!!!

    it's obvious that Miami is going to game plan to stop the JETS running game... and if Davis and Smith can rough up the Jet WR's ... it could be a long day for Sanchez!!! i'm not comfortable with the offense against the REX/JETS Defense.... it could be an even longer day for the Miami offense ... Henning has his work cut out ...
