Post Crowder is Miami's best ILB against the run
Crowder is a one dimensional linebacker who is poor in pass coverage. I don't have a problem with his tackling ... in fact, you could make a highlight reel on him. But I"ve seen him make the wrong choice in reading the play at times. One thing I do notice is that he seems to pair up well with Dansby. The defense seems to be better when he is in there.

For those wanting to dump Channing Crowder, consider he was Miami's best inside linebacker against the run (10th) this season, according to Tim Dobbins was 20th, Dansby 28th. And though Crowder was third-worst in yards-per-completion pass coverage among inside linebackers, Dobbins was the NFL's worst (13 of 14 throws against him were caught; 17.8 average). A.J. Edds will help there. ... te-of.html

Crowder-Dansby is a very, very solid tandem inside. The truth is that Crowder will never be the LB Thomas or even Dansby is...but he's effective and is not expensive. With so many areas to upgrade on the team, as long as he stays healthy, Crowder is perfectly fine as a starter.

I thought it was pretty comical when one of the old Dolphins said without Dansby the ILBs look like the three stooges.
