I also think Miami is closing in on a dominant defense.Not addressing anyone specifically, but I think part of the descrepency between "rankings" and results is due to scheme and philosophy.
It's really not a straight comparison between the multi front hybrid we employ verses many other defensive systems.
My opinion, we are not far away (one or two studs) from being a dominant defense. Maybe Philips is one of those guys, maybe Iggy, who knows.
We need to generate an organic pass rush, and set the edge against the run. That is it.
I have faith we can going into year 3 of Flo.
Like you said, maybe Phillips can be that guy. Maybe Iggy. Potentially Holland.
If Phillips can become the type of player teams need to game plan for, Flores can move away from relying so heavily on blitz packages.
