  • Systems check

    Anxious for the first game. Sure, I can't wait to see the aqua and orange flying around. And yeah, there are some guys I'm more excited to see than others. But most of all it's the systems check that interests me the most. Starters will play sparingly if at all. Young or new guys (favorites) won't play as much as I'd like. No matter, there will be 60 minutes of football played.
    1st stringers, 2nd stringers, 3rd stringers; all will play according to the schemes instilled within the systems. That's how I want to see how we match up. In the past our starters came in and played competitively for their two or three series. Then the second and third stringers came in and looked completely lost and unable to really compete. My impression has been that the systems were awful and it took our best and most skilled and rehearsed to execute them to even a level of mediocrity. I want to see consistency from one group to the next getting to the right places and making plays on the ball. I want the systems to create cohesion regardless of who is on the field and be confident that the whole machine will not break down if one guy steps out and another steps in. I want our systems to prove that they are sophisticated yet simple enough so that our 3rd teamers can kick butt as well as our first teamers. When I see that, I'll start to believe that players lower on the depth chart can rise up and become solid NFL players, even starters. Otherwise I'll continue to realize that our coaches will train young guys how to play stupid with good technique and then scratch their head when they don't see success. And we'll continue our approach of poaching players off of better coached teams rosters hoping to improve our depth, only to force them into our crappy systems and then say, "Hey, this guy is no better than the guy we cut to get him."
    Have we become a smarter coached team?

    You'd think that as soon as we fired Average Joe & his merry bunch of misfits we immediately became a smarter coached team..IMO, we could've taken anyone down from the stands and accomplished this....

      We did! We took a new tight end coach who only had 5 years of position coaching experience and he STILL did better!

    Gase proclaimed his game as dink and dunk and he is fine with that. As long as it is successful then whatever works.
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

      Some could call Brady's game dink and dunk. The difference is that Brady goes through his progressions and throws to the most open receiver who will get his team a first down. Tannehill just throws it to the first guy he feels he can get the ball to regardless of that receiver NOT getting the first down and going to get demolished by the DB who is right on him. Dink and Dunk can work if done effectively. Let's all hope that Gase can bring the best out of Tannrhill so he looks more like Brady this year and less like a scared high school quarterback who is just trying to get the ball out of his hands.

      I am curious to see how Gase is on the sideline. Is he emotional? stoic? How engaged is he with talking to guys? How are the players responding to him? I definitely am interested in seeing some of the young talent and also to see how the O Line does. Man I am glad football is back.

        I'm not quite vibrating waiting for my Football fix like I usually am this time of year but I'm certainly curious to see what we have to look forward to.
        While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

          When we watch the 3rd team defense we might say things like, "He looks hesitant. He reacted a little slow. He doesn't know how to use his hands real well, He can't let the RB or QB get around the corner so easily like that," etc.

          When the twos are in we might say, "He doesn't have Misi's pop. He's not as powerful as Suh. He doesn't fully commit like Reshad Jones. He doesn't go up and get it like Grimes did. He can't turn that corner quite like Cam can."

          There are levels of proficiency that you expect to see. There are weaknesses in the 2nd stringers game you don't want to see in your starters and the same with not wanting to see your twos making the mistakes that your threes make.

          Things like getting aligned properly, consistent pursuit angles, proper spacing, communication, gang tackling, fundamental tackling, guys swarming toward the ball, playing the ball in the air, etc; these are the things I want to see on a consistent, play by play basis whether it's the ones, twos or threes. Let's not forget some perpetual excitement and enthusiasm amongst the players.

            I agree with all of these as what we look for. I also want to see the players fire and passion. Are they buying in? Can they play as motivated as they originally did for Campbell but with a better playbook and gameplan? They may not have all the play book down yet, but are they fired up and all in?
