    I forgot about Big Ben. The Defense may have carried him in that first SB but the second one he had already came into his own as a superior QB.

    Brad Johnson has won but the game has changed dramatically since then

Then they got raped by Pittsburgh, and barely squeaked out a win against Miami because their kicker missed a few field goals, and their coach called timeout on a blocked kick, among a whole laundry list of other mistakes that the Dolphins made in the game.

    They didn't get raped in Pittsburgh, two sure TD passes were dropped

    The Miami game, Hill dropped another TD pass and Cumberland ran the wrong route on a play that should have been another TD.

    This team can still turn their season around. There is some (but not a lot) of talent on the squad. The key is they have to have confidence their coaching staff understands what the hell is going on and has a solid plan to fix it. They obviously can't just keep doing the same things as before. They have to reinvent themselves on the fly.

    What assets do we have on D ? Some DL with potential (or previous success) and several hard hitting strong safeties. So make maximum use of this: Four man front all the time.


    RUNNING PLAYS: Pouha / DeVito / Ellis rotate inside, Coples and Wilkerson at DE. Dare teams to run against that stout wall.

    PASSING PLAYS: Coples and Wilkerson shift inside and Thomas / Pace / Maybin rotate at DE

    LB: go for speed with Davis playing MLB

    STRONG SAFETY: Landry / Eric Smith / rookie Antonio Allen can all hit like sledge hammers. Use one at OLB. Run the 46 defense. Safety blitzes. Mix it up so the other team never knows what is coming.


    Emphasize proper tackling fundamentals every single practice for the rest of the year.

    As to the offense, it's less about maximizing our talent (because we don't have a lot) but minimizing our deficiencies. Biggest problems - lack of WR and no running game. Wildly inconsistent QB.

    Go double TE base to maximize our running and minimize the use of WR. This helps our OL as well. Keller, Rueland and Cumberland (?) can all catch the ball. Get them on the field a lot. Schillens and Hill run a bunch of post routes to keep safeties honest. Mark airs it out several times a game.

    Extra TE gives push on the running game. Forget Greene. McKnight is our most explosive player so play him a lot. Powell a fair bit as well. Use screens and pitches to get these guys the ball in space.

    Short passes for Kerley in the slot. The big TE and Patrick Turner should all be easy targets for short completions in the middle of the field. That should give Mark some easy throws to complete and boost his confidence.

    I think you may see some interesting TE formations in this upcoming game against the Texans. Last week against the Titans...they ran a Triple TE formation. With all three bunched up on one side....like you sometimes see done with three WR's. It was used in the redzone. And it worked. It confused the defense's coverage, and resulted in one of them catching it for a TD.

    Texans also mixed in their two TE's with their fullback, in formations similar to what I've just described. You don't know if they were going to run or pass it.

    You don't need great talent to be effective with formations like this. You just need to use them at the right time. Then the players need to properly execute them.
