I like the defense. There are some pretty good players on this defense. But overall, they’re just an alright defense.

I realize that this defense just played the defending Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are managed by the greatest quarterback of all time in Tom Brady. Brady has seen it all and knows exactly what to do to and has seen everything you throw at him. Unless you have some sort of weather phenomenon happening, I don’t know what you have to do to stop Brady with this cast of offensive skill players along with the offensive line he has.

Not sure if you noticed, but Brady had about 24 years to throw every time he dropped back. He could bounce around, read a book, eat lunch, and then throw the ball. A far cry of a difference from what the Dolphin’s offensive does.

The Dolphin’s defensive front, littered with guys that we like to tout like Wilkins, AVG, Sieler, Ogbah, Davis, Baker, Butler, and Philips, are pretty much just a bunch of guys. Obviously, I like where Philips could end up which basically means I like where he might literally end up after he plays with another team that isn’t Miami and really flourishes. And Christian Wilkins, I think he’s a solid player. Not often a pro-bowl type player, but a solidish player. That’s my limit with him. Everyone else, they’re just JAGS(just a guy) type, players. Sorry to all you Baker truthers. He looked beyond lost today and it’s not the first game that he was invisible out there.

Byron Jones, that guy might have a nice second half to his career switching to safety like Eric Rowe did. I’m serious. He’s an okay cornerback. But, if a quarterback wants to pick on him, they can.

By the Way- The Dolphins went quietly into the good night. Lost by about 35 points or something like that. On to London
