    Agree. Miami is giving up 5.0 yards a carry and over 144 yards a game. They have the 29th ranked defense. Run, run and run again. Their offense is terrible as well but that worries me more. How bad of an offense you truly are is inversely correlated with how well you will play against the Pats D.

    Run, run, but not the very first offensive play. Play-action pass one time first as they will be totally keyed up expecting the run and wanting to set a tone. Then after that uncertainty has been given, ram it down their throats.

    Pound the rock, yes...but not just vanilla up-the-middle crap. Use all of our weapons, including The Experiment, and all of our formations.

    This team needs to get its passing game up to its fullest potential, and they'll be facing a team that just lost it's best DB. Why would you want to piss away the opportunity to continue improving the rapport in the passing game?

    I'd prefer the both/and approach for this game instead of either/or. :cool:

    Well, you would have thought the Pats could have run the ball but I did assume the Pats D would make the 29th ranked Miami offense look unstoppable.

    Sorry, Mosi. The last time we could run was when James, Collins, and you were in the backfield. Patterson and JE11 make our average look good because of all the gadget plays we run...but when RBs carry the ball, we are pedestrian at best.
