Shocking that the Dolphins would complain about smart playcalling.

You have to earn that kind of respect, and you're inability to come up with an effective counter over and over again proves you don't deserve it.

I am a Bills fan. As painful as it is for me to defend them, I must. If the Fish can't stop the Patsies time and again, then that is their fault.

As Lombardi said of his power sweep play- We are going to run this play. They know we are going to run it. They know we are going to run it and still can't stop us.

If you don't like what they are doing, stop them.

Maybe next time Brady will fumble the ball so as not to hurt their wittle feelers.

If it wasn't for the players on the Patriots, the Dolphins would have won.
 
2012-12-07 04:52:54 PM  
Wow... they really said that. And really are that dumb.

Patriots: Poor, predictable Dolphins, always takes 'rock'.
Dolphins: Good ol' 'rock'. Nothin beats that!

It's funny because in a CFB thread earlier somebody was opining about how talent beats scheme 99 times out of 100 in CFB. But in the NFL?! Nope, the talent is distributed so much more equally that something like this would never happen.

It's definitely disrespectful...as in, "We don't respect your ability to stop us."

He wasn't saying the Pats should respect the Dolphins...he was saying that it ticked him off that the Dolphins could NOT stop the play.

But go ahead, and make this a "stupid fooball player says dumb things" thread.

Um... no. No, what he actually said was that the Patriots were disrespectful to the Dolphins. I'm sure he was *also* ticked off that they couldn't stop the play, but what he actually said was that it was mean of the Patriots to keep running the same play.

Prediction for the Sports Section of the Miami Herald:

"It was totally disrespectful for the Fourty-Niners to keep giving the ball to Frank Gore and score all over us."

/come non, Niner's....let's bounce back from last week...

As one who saw the Dolphins break the Pats' hearts every December, their tears are as delicious as Mercury Morris' champange.
 
2012-12-07 07:31:45 PM  
you want to beat the Patriots, step up and do it (and yes, I will 100% admit up front that the Giants did so, twice - man, that hurt, but it's true), otherwise, please ask you trainers to add some more butt paste to the shopping list when they make their next BJ's run


/really looking forward to MNF - should be a great game
 
2012-12-07 07:34:59 PM  
I get so sick of farkers putting quotes in the headline even though no one actually... Um... Said... Wow. What a dink.

Go pats
 
2012-12-07 07:41:40 PM  
Dolphins won a moral victory in that the PAts didn't score a bazillion points on them. Hopefully the Patriots will change that in the last game of the season when the Fins play at New England. The Dolphins better hope Belichick doesn't hold a grudge and put Brady in that last game, which will probably otherwise be meaningless to win.

As Lombardi said of his power sweep play- We are going to run this play. They know we are going to run it. They know we are going to run it and still can't stop us.


I've said that these are my biggest complaints about the Browns, and especially Trent Richardson: 5 yards on a clever draw play is the sign of good playcalling and a good back. 3 yards on 3rd and 1 on a play absolutely everyone in the building knows is coming is the sign of great teamwork and a great back.

"It is disrespectful," tackle Randy Starks agreed, "but you've got to stop it. We never stopped it, so I'd keep running the same play, too."

It makes you angry when a person or team is able to run over you with the same moves or plays in any game or sport. But you've got to stop it.

Disrespectful? Not at a professional level. At recess? Yeah.

Um... You quoted the second guy. This might help you out.

Six of the 13 runs were in exactly the same hole, over left guard. That didn't sit well with reserve tackle Tony McDaniel, who was the only lineman to have a tackle in the series.

"It really (ticked) me off," he said. "It was disrespectful to us to run the same play over and over and be successful.

"Normally when somebody's driving down the field you just think, 'Well, they just had a good run there,' but you run the same play over and over, as a competitor that (ticks) me off."

If they keep running the same running play, and it KEEPS ON WORKING, you might want to think about send up a safety to fill that gap once the play starts, if only to keep the other team relatively honest.
 
2012-12-07 08:45:05 PM  
Being ticked off is appropriate. Being ticked off at the other team probably isn't, unless they're chop-blocking over and over on each play, injuring guys (which apparently didn't happen).

Or I suppose if the play involves shanking whoever you're supposed to block, you don't want to go up against that play all the time.
 
2012-12-07 08:49:20 PM  
That's what I used to like about watching the Seahawks with Alexander running behind Jones and Hutchinson. You knew he was going to run around the left side, everybody in the stadium knew it, and he still got 6-7 yards every time.
 
2012-12-07 08:49:24 PM  
He meant disrespectful in the sense that "They didnt respect our ability to stop that play, so they ran it again and again"

Not as in "That play choice was an affront to our personal respectablity as athletes"

He just meant that they expected to succeed against them.

But he could have used better word choice.

OSULugan: It's funny because in a CFB thread earlier somebody was opining about how talent beats scheme 99 times out of 100 in CFB. But in the NFL?! Nope, the talent is distributed so much more equally that something like this would never happen.


In fairness, this could be a case of utterly godawful defensive scheme as much as superior talent. The Pats aren't normally a great running team, so it just sounds like the Dolphins pooped their pants.

The Pats are 8th in the league in rushing offense, are averaging 140 yards/game on the ground and have a thousand yard rusher in Ridley. From 2006ish-2011 maybe they weren't spectacular, but they've been running effectively this season with a pretty balanced attack (46% rushing plays called this season). So the Dolphins shouldn't have been surprised, unless they only studied tape from not this season.

I'm a Dolphins fan but this was one of the most idiotic comments that I've heard in a long time.

I read it the same way ISO15693 read it. The Pats weren't looking to ridicule the Dolphins...they just knew the Dolphins could do nothing to stop a basic run up the middle.

I don't know...look at the Michigan defense from 2 years ago to last year. Same players, different coaching staff.

Umm...Ridley is having a good year.

To wit, I love the Dolphins players and fans crying. It wasn't much more than a decade ago when the Marino-Fish killed the Pats all the time. Every game. Home or away.

I believe in the old saying, "if you don't want us to run up the score, stop us".

Pretty simple.

/Now lose to the 49ers like the good loser Dolphins you are
 
2012-12-07 11:21:38 PM  
The Dolphins' problem isn't their defense. It's not the greatest, but it's a good enough unit. They should score more points.

And Soliai is one big, crazy Samoan.

They were playing the Patriots, not the Broncos. No "apparently" about it.

2012-12-08 03:52:02 AM  
I hear tell that Auburn was quite peeved - irked, even - at Alabama's insistence on scoring so many touchdowns that the Tide acquired 49 points.

Just not right, I tell ya!!

John Buck 41: McDaniel and Starks are wimps. Stupid as well.


I don't know about Starks, seems like he was asked about the "disrespectful" angle his and pretty much said "I guess you could say it's disrespectful but it's our job to earn that respect and we didn't, I'd have disrespected us too"

Seems to be a pretty reasonable opinion and pretty whine free. The others were pretty whiny
 
2012-12-08 06:16:56 PM  
I blame tecmo super bowl with its eight plays. With regular tecmo bowl you generally only had two run options. So the defense had to respect the repeat call. But once you double that, you, as the offense, have to utilize the entire playbook.
