So, the time is ripe for a win?
You'd think so. But with this Dolphins team, you never fucking know.
Joey Porter is banged up and may not play, which sucks because he absolutely owned the Bills last year. I'd really love to see Cameron Wake get more snaps if Porter is out. But right now it looks like Charlie Anderson will get the nod in Peezey's place.It's obvious that T.O. is one more "quiet" game from going all Howard Beale on the Bills, and their Dracula head coach knows it, so look for them to target Owens all day. I don't care what they have to do, but our secondary cannot give up the big pass plays like they did last week against the Chargers. The key to stopping that will be the pass rush. Get in Trent Checkdown's face. All. Day. Long. And get off the field on third downs! And shit on a turtle would someone please make a fucking tackle!
As for the offense -- we all know the deal. Set up Chad Henne for success. Just like the Chargers last week, the Bills defense is going to blitz the shit out of Henne. This doesn't mean we have him handing the ball off on every damn 2nd and 7 or 3rd and 9. The Robot has a fucking arm. Let him unleash that shit. Of course, the key will be to protect him. The offensive line needs to do its job keeping Henne upright and the receivers need to do their job, you know, RECEIVING.
Ted Ginn Jr: You're on notice. Slapping the floor after every dropped pass doesn't make it better. Catch. The. Ball. Then run. You want to avoid getting hit? Run. You're fast. RUN! (not out of bounds, cockhammer). Same goes for you, Fasano. Enough with your disappearing act. Every inexperienced QB needs a go-to tight end. That's on you, mamaluke.
As for Ronnie and Rickey -- feed them as much as possible. Let them gorge on that football til they splode. They are clearly our best players and best hope at a win. Feed the shit out of them. Not to the point where you're handcuffing Henne, but enough to wear you're wearing down the Bills D, and controlling the game. Even though our secondary is perfectly capable of making Trent Edwards look like Peyton Manning, he's not Peyton Manning. So we can actually pull this shit off this week.
Prediction: Dolphins 24 - Bills 20
