Re: OC Dan Henning - Is offense better suited for Pennington?
As soon as we got over the top on the Vikings, they're going to shut that off.
So when the DB in the Ravens game never breaks out of his back pedal despite Marshall running a good route and jumps the underneath stuff ... that's NOT shutting it down. Teams play Miami with one idea in their heads on defense: Don't get beat by small ball. They know this team isn't going to throw deep and if they do it once, it won't be done twice. It took about 6 deep balls in the Jets Game before the Jets made adjustments. Very simply put, if you don't attack the deep field, they tighten the screws and then start jumping the underneath balls.
