    In the last 4 games vs the Pats, we have been down either 14-0 by end of 1, or 19-0 by half.
    This is the trend that absolutely needs to stop. Miami has to get to 3rd and short, fake punts and avoid the pre snap penalties

    At least we have them at home. We got untracked a bit against Denver, maybe we'll battle them down to the wire. I hope we kick the **** out of them all damn day!

    NE is a lot better than Denver. Denver would probably give the Browns their first win.

    NE won't fall for the sneaky stuff, too well coached. Just hope beli and Thomas don't give us some our own med and shoot for 100. They like to ring it up in these spots.

    New England will always find a teams' weakness and exploit it.

    For Miami it's a lack of overall speed on the defense, but specifically at linebacker. We can't cover the Patriots short game and that's why NE puts up points easily and consistently against the Dolphins.

    And Brady gets rid of the ball so quick it negates a pass rush more often than not

    It all depends on Cutler who throws to players that are covered, instead of throwing to the one that's not.

    I feel the problem is that instead of playing down and distance we take too many chances with ill-advised play calling with players who are incapable of executing the play that called where it's effective.

    yes I agree. I also want to add if they run on first and are unsuccessful, running again to make it 3rd and long is the exact mentality we have to avoid.

    .......and that's why having good LB play is important, those quick 3 and 4 yard passes should be blown up by our LB unit.

    The last 3 games the QB stats were

    Nov 26 2017-- Moore 1 TD-- 2 INT-- 0 Fumbles

    Jan 1 2016--Moore 2 TD--1 INT--1 fumble

    Sept 18 2016 Tannehill 2 TD--2 INT--1 fumble

    Grand total of 5 TD--5 INT--2 fumbles

    Going against the Pat's defense I fully expect Cutler to struggle. Hopefully he surprises everyone

    Those were Philbin and Campbell teams. Those teams were competitive with New England. Gase has not even come close.

    This game coached by Gase came down to the end and we certainly had a chance.

    Lol yeah it was Gase's plan to injure the qb forcing a rookie to come in after going down 24-0 and 31-3. But I guess you got me. They did technically come close to tying it and therefore Gase is a competent coach that fields a competitive unit.

    It seems we are down early in every game not just the Pats.
    We really need to start on offense like we are an NFL offense. This constant 3 and out the first three possession every game is annoying as ****. That would help us against always falling behind.
