, but once Williams left, there went there run D.Originally posted by FIN54
Buffalo's D is better then the Colts.
Key matchup No. 1
Who: Dolphins C Tim Ruddy vs. Bills DT Pat Williams (and then Tyrone Robertson).
Who won: Ruddy.
Impact: Williams played approximately a half-dozen downs on a sore knee. After Ruddy blocked him low a couple of times, Williams called it a game. That essentially took out Buffalo's best defensive player, who the Dolphins believed should have made the Pro Bowl.
What happened: Once the Dolphins got Williams out, the rest of the game was a breeze as they dominated the line of scrimmage on the way to 43 rushes for 202 yards. That included 158 yards by Lamar Smith, who broke out of a deep slump and now gives the Dolphins some hope of a running game in the playoffs. Ruddy cleared the way for much of that yardage by dominating the point of attack.
If we want someone to run inside - stick w/Lamar, but we should play lots of Minor and throw short passes to him as well as run some cut backs to the outsideOriginally posted by Phinmaster1354
I am not convinced LAMAR can be the back he was last year! Now with Ray Lewis and FATASS Siragusa coming to town. This will be a huge test for the PHINS O-line and Lamar! I know that He has been a bust, but what about JJ Johnson getting a few carries?? He can run hard and with some power when he wants!! He had a GREAT game in the playoffs two years ago against the SEAHAWKS!! He might be the spark the PHINS need off the bench! You never know???
