    Maybe Suh will pull a Gronk on Brady.

    The very first thing to do is STOP THE PENALTIES! It's FREE yardage to just not false start or hold.
    Second, win the turnover battle. The pats make everyone pay with points on almost every take away they get.
    Third, keep Brady off the field. This doesn't mean 3 downs, three runs up the middle. Ya gotta get first downs Gase.
    Fourth, pressure Brady. Actually plant him. Hits don't have as a big an effect as bodies laying on him.
    Fifth, stop with the field position battle. You need to make POINTS against the pats. It will take risks on 4th and inches, but that's the mentality needed to beat the pats.

    Oh, here is one that always bothers me...

    Stop RUNNING on 2nd and 1. Christ, its a free play, take deep shots on 2nd and short, run the ball on 3rd and 1.

    Typically you win by scoring more point than the other team.

    Wish this game was on Sunday. Primetime is good for Brady, bad for us

    Wake and Suh need to be huge and force a turnover, and our secondary needs to come up with one too. Drake needs to average 4+ a carry. Cutler can only throw coverage picks on deep shots, nothing that affects field position. We have to play virtually penalty free.

    Don't turn the ball over
    Don't commit stupid penalties on both sides of the ball
    Front 7 has to play the game of the year and actually execute their assignments.

    Easy!

    It'd be a free play if getting 1 yard was a guarantee. But Miami has consistently shown they can't do that. So, it's not a free play.

    If the odds of getting 1 yard are the same as the odds of getting 30 yards, why not?

    We can run our bubble screen on 3rd and 1 if he wants.

    They aren't the same odds and I think you know that.

    You're right, lol. That said, it doesnt change my opinion that they should take shots on 2nd and short rather than just getting the first down.

    Yes, its a game of inches, but at times it seems we take that literally.

    By game planning.. havng your dbs all be on the same page.. understand situations in the game.. by having athletic linebackers who can stay with backs in space.. by letting a saftey roam and keep eyes on the qb..
    Drake could not hold on to the damn ball last time we played these guys they know that... they will trick Cutler with switches and already knowing what 3 routes we run based on down and distance.
    I like this new O line though Pouncey looked good last week before injury

    He's not even ready for regular game planning.
    Has an Adam Gase team ever scored on the first drive? And how many times have they prevented a score on the first drive? They seem to come out startled to be playing a game in 90% of the games.

    About 420 yards rushing should do it.

    We have college refs ref the game. This is a primetime game and no way the NFL refs will be allowed to call the came legitimately. "Roger, hey it's Bob. Listen, d ont forget to make that phone call we talked about. ;) wink wink. We are playing Miami on primetime if you know what I'm saying. "
    "No problem buddy. Thanks for the raise."

    We had our chances last game but the main thing you must do against NE is score touchdowns when the opportunity arises. You can't kick FGs in the first half and you can't fall behind early or its over. Score TD's and stay in the game

    Adam Gase is improving in the getting behind early category versus New England. 21-0, 17-0, and 14-0. So it will be 10-0 on Monday night if the pattern holds true.

    1. Take out Dwayne Allen’s legs.
    2. Ensure Brady comes down with food poisoning.
    3. Pray

    Ok I’m hero picking this week. No Gronk, no Cannon, no Wise, no Van Noy and Lewis is sick and missed practice today. Gase is 0-3 vs NE and quite frankly hes been embarrassed each time. I’m sure this pisses him off. I expect a hell of an effort Monday and I’m predicting a Miami win. I’ve been here a long time and don’t hero pick. I just have a feeling about this one. I wish I could trust Cutler more but I’m not waffling, I’m sticking with my gut. I think we win Monday.

    BTW I know it hurts our pick and most here want to lose but no win over the patriots is meaningless to me.

    It doesn’t matter if Brady wasn’t playing. They will still beat us. Everyone just doesn’t realize how bad Denver really is. That win gave people a false reality of Miami being a good team.

    No I don't care about Denver. That has nothing to do with my prediction. a few weeks back I said I'd start Matt Moore over Trevor Semien and the site scoffed at it. I know how much that QB sucks.

    Hit Brady early and often without showing blitz too much. They key to beating that offense has always been making Brady feel the pressure. Easier said than done, I know, but that’s how you take that offense out of it’s rhythm.

    I didn’t say anything about QB. Your prediction is based on false hope that a horrible Denver team gave you. It will be 14-0 in the first quarter with the Cheaters on top.

    Execution. They install a game plan to beat the Patriots every time they play them. It comes down to execution. Disrupt their plays. Catch the ball. Block the guy. Hit the hole. Kick the ball. Execute the plays and move the chains. One team does it better and wins. If it's our guys, we win.

    This is the most ripe for the pickings the Pats have been all year. No Gronk, no Van Noy, no Cannon, questions at RB. Brady has a 7-8 record in Miami with 32 sacks and 13 INT’s. I’m going with the upset.

    they need to play down and distance football, need one yard call a play for getting one yard, don't put Jarvis in situations where he can't win, he's not fast enough to make the bubble screens effective(Grant is fast enough) use Grant out of the back field. and hit Tommy boy often and hard, and stop making stupid penalties that give New England first downs.

    Control the clock. I'm thinking 59 minutes of possession should get the job done.

    I don't care if Gronkowski is out or not. Pats will win by 14 anyway and wrap up the AFC East.
