Post Miami Dolphins talking points: Defense ahead of offense
Quote:
by Brian Biggane
One thing the Dolphins appear to have this year is competent pass rushers. From Randy Starks on the nose to rookies Jared Odrick and Koa Misi and young vet Cameron Wake, there are a lot of guys with the ability to get to the quarterback quickly. That’s where we start our Friday morning talking points:

1. Mike Nolan’s defense has the ability and personnel to bring a formidable pass rush.

Even a day later, there was still talk about how the defense made life miserable on the handful of plays it employed Mike Nolan’s 5-2-4 against an empty backfield on Wednesday. With outside linebackers like Wake, Misi, Ikaika Ilama-Francis and even rookie Chris McCoy attacking from a three-point stance, the line was getting immense pressure on the quarterbacks to get rid of the ball quickly.
While the offensive line looked overmatched and Chad Henne was having trouble even getting short passes away, coach Tony Sparano said Thursday none of it was a surprise.

“Those are the days, when I was an offensive line coach, I wanted to stay home,” he said, “and the offensive linemen know it’s going to be a rough day. But at the end of the practice there was some give and take. It was a really good evaluator for us in terms of our install (of the offense).”

Sparano has said the defense is ahead of the offense right now, which is typical for this point in camp. All the shuffling of personnel on the offensive line only exacerbates that situation.

Somehow I don't remember this being the case last year. Pretty certain the O was having its way. It is good to hear this...even if it is just camp.

i can't remember who posted it a few days back, but they said we need the defense to be sharp while it takes the offense a bit to get clicking. If this is the case, then good deal an aggressive defense is going to be needed in for the first few games.

Defense ahead of the offense? Tell that to Brandon Marshall who has smoked our secondary.

Not concerned about Marshall smoking our secondary. The guy has smoked every secondary in the league over the last few seasons. Its encouraging he's continuing in Miami.
