Nah, if Gase gets fired during a season Darren Rizzi will be the interim coach - no doubt about it.

If I was the owner you'd be hired already.

Well, y'all are hired as staff. I'll take a nice bottle of Irish whisky, 'cause I'm old school.

Burke? Way too early to crown him ANYTHING at all. We beat two bad teams with our defense, the Titans and Chargers.

Getting RUN OVER by the lowly Jets was not a good resume builder for Burke.

Didn't do all that much against the Saints either, now granted they are a far more powerful and talented offense vs the rest of the schedule we've played to this point.

Turning focus to the defense for a bit, I definitely like the way Tankersley is developing, and Howard had a really strong game on Sunday as well. Jones seems to be rounding back into form. The run defense, by and large I've got no complaints.

What I'd like to see is consistency, and we just HAVE to get off the field on 3rd down. With this offense, it's up to the defense to help out with time of possession. Force 3 and outs, or a punt after 1 first down. Don't let the opposing team grind out the ball, force them behind the chains and then get after the QB.

IMO we are going to have to take some risks on defense. Go for the turnover via sack or interception, and get off the field. Because our offense is going to suffer multiple 3 and outs for the foreseeable future. So if the defense tries to play bend but don't break, they are just going to get worn out. I'd unleash the dogs, and try and make something happen.

Great post, white.

The pass D has not been good. Consider these QB stats - completion % and QBR - in the 4 games we've played:

Rivers: 79.5%, 110.6
McCown: 78.3%, 126.3
Brees: 70.7%, 104.5
Cassel: 65.6%, 85.5

That's not good.

Too many completions, not enough turnovers, inconsistent and often invisible pass rush, way too many long drives. And yes, the run D has been fantastic...but we haven't faced a running team yet. The Chargers, Jets and Saints are really poor running teams, and the Titans without Cassel and Lewan are maybe even worse.

The points allowed is excellent - obviously - but it's not going to be hold up against the good offenses we'll face like the Pats, Falcons, Chiefs, Raiders, Panthers, Bucs. Same story as last season.

What's not good about it? I see the completion % decreasing with each game.

I guess if you're a 'glass half full' guy. LOL But keep in mind that Cassel may be the worst starting QB in the NFL right now...and even he completed over 65% of his passes. You look at the time of possession in that game, and the Phins still lost that battle even with the Titans rushing for under 70 yards. It's a problem - the D can't get off the field. Again, the bend-don't-break works against garbage teams like the Titans - but I can pretty much guarantee that the Falcons and all those other good offense will take advantage of the soft Miami pass D.

I think your auto correct made it Cassel instead of Cutler!!!!!!!!

I honestly think that run defense numbers are skewed. There is a huge gap between the run defense and the pass defense. I believe its a combination of both opponent game planning and Miami's defensive front 4. I truly feel like opponents can pass on this team. Yes Cassel started but, he was behind a very physical front that rivals the Cowboys. Lewan was missing but Maulunga, Godchaux, and Timmons were very physical as well. Not to mention the rest of the D.

LOL Take your pick - they both suck!

Good points. In the Titans game, keep in mind that with Cassel at QB the Phins were able to essentially ignore the passing game and key on the run. If you make Cassel one-dimensional, it's game over. The Titans have two great tackles, but they are fairly weak on the interior OL, and without Lewan the entire line was weakened. The Titans' OL, even with Lewan, just doesn't compare to the better OLs in the league, like Dallas, KC, Oakland, etc.

I don't think we'll see the same physical, attacking D from the Phins on Sunday in Atlanta. If they take that approach, Ryan will carve them up. We just don't have the personnel to play that way against good offenses. Look for Freeman and Coleman to have a huge impact in the passing game, catching passes against Timmons and Maualuga - and both of those backs have take-it-to-the-house potential any time they touch the ball.

Matt Burke should be getting a lot of credit for the defensive performance this team has shown this year. He is going to make somebody a great head coach in a couple years!

I haven't seen anything that makes me think Burke could be a head coach, but he's done a better job than I expected.  There's still a ton of problems with this defense, but so far he's doing a pretty good job of hiding them.  I'm not sure how long this D can keep doing well with an inconsistent pass rush, poor pass D and very few turnovers, but for now they are getting the job done.

If by "getting the job done" you mean "dragging the offense kicking and screaming to a possible playoff spot" then yes, I agree Cool

LOL

I just wish we could have a game where, 1. the Phins look good in the first half, and 2. the Phins' offense and defense BOTH play well at the same time. It's just such a frustrating team to watch, even when they win.
