The Dolphins remain adamant they did the right thing in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 23-21 loss to Buffalo when they passed 13 times among their 16 plays from scrimmage. The coaches felt they had to be aggressive instead of sitting on the lead and milking the clock.
"I don't think you can protect a 21-20 lead in this league," offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said. "I think you have to be fairly aggressive."
Sherman said he's been involved in games in which he tried to protect a 21-20 lead and ended up losing, 27-21.
"We're going to be aggressive with a one-point lead in the fourth quarter," Sherman said. "We're not going to sit on it."
Beyond that, the Bills were showing eight-man fronts, and the Dolphins have said they'll almost always pass against an eight-man front because they think it gives them a great advantage.
I agree with this philosophy. I also agree with sliding help to a side that needs it.http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miam ... ?track=rss
