Teams need to run the ball downhill against us...

I expect the patriots and Las Vegas to do just that...and these are games with playoff implications

I seen kc run somebody over too earlier this year but that was with osemele blowing out holes

I bet Flo is smarter than you about football!

Just sayin'

Tho I know you're a maven. He's brilliant!

Odds are we'll be prepared for a run oriented attack.

RE Amoeba -- we ran it a few times last year and got toasted.

Obviously something we've worked on a lot to get right.

Also helps to have significantly upgraded personnel.

>>> key point is -- amoeba makes presnap reads nearly impossible.

Definitely confused Herbert and also confuses OL assignments.

I would also imagine it's extremely challenging to prepare for

since proper execution by scout D would be really tuff.

Makes the O burn some time preparing for an "exotic."

Miami's run defense is going to be as good as the secondary towards the latter part of the season. Our LBs are performing at a much higher level, Rakeon is turning in to a beast, Wilkins is getting better and Seiler is poised to continue his ascent.

Our coaching staff will maximize the talent along the D line just like it has across the board. I'm not worried one iota.

I believe one single Amoeba is spelled as such but when you are referring to the entire defensive side I believe we call them Amoebae
That is true, I think. However, I believe the meaning here comes from the chaotic form and apparent lack of structure of an amoeba. Our entire defense takes on that appearance. At least, that's hopefully what it looks like to opposing QBs; making it much tougher to read both pre and post snap what we are actually doing.
