The Denver game was a great game to watch even though we came out on the losing side. A lot of people took notice of the Dolphins and Ryan Tannehill in this game. I think there is a good chance this leads to some more prime time opportunities for the Dolphins next year. With that being said I was surprised at how well Denver was able to handle our defensive line. I really expected them to dominate and it was the opposite outcome. I don’t want to take anything away from Denver, they did a great job both run blocking and pass blocking. But as I watched this game there was something I did notice and I am hoping the Dolphins coaches did as well. Watch the Pre-Snap handling by Peyton Manning. He very often used an extended snap count yelling out all kinds of stuff and giving hard counts. He was able to get Miami to jump off sides twice and more important he is looking to see where the team is blitzing from. To Miami’s credit they did a pretty good job of not getting caught at it. It felt like he maximized every snap he got. I have played defensive line in football. I can tell you, it can be both mentally and physically tiring to have to hold your position with your hands in the dirt for a prolonged time. I really hope both Bill Lazor and Ryan Tannehill can learn from it. Work on some long snap counts this week. Getting a couple jumps from the defensive line is a big advantage and getting some linebackers and d-backs to expose where they are moving on the play is a big advantage as well. The Jets almost have to have their defensive line dominate to stay in the game. The don’t want to have to throw the ball a lot and score points. Learn from the loss, practice getting to the line and working some extended snap counts to help neutralize the Jets defensive line. I think it could really help us get a bigger advantage this week and beyond.
