Post Containing run a big key for Miami Dolphins against Titans

The Dolphins were able to stop the Titans' Chris Johnson last year, but in 2010, Miami's run defense is not as strong.

Defending the run requires fast-paced geometry. Stay acutely aware of where you are or you'll play the angle wrong and some swift, shifty running back will make you look obtuse.


Tennessee's Chris Johnson, officially listed as probable with a thigh injury, is the premier angle buster in the NFL.

He's the closest thing to a distance sprinter you'll find.

The Dolphins kept him from exploding last season, but they're coming off a game against Baltimore in which they flunked their geometry test.


``Most poor tackling defenses or when you have a bad day, it's because your angles are really bad to the ball,'' Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan said.

SOME ANSWERS


Big kids with bad geometry.


``One of our answers is that we have to take better angles and [Johnson] can run away from angles,'' Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said. ``There's a run that he has in the San Diego game that's off the charts. It starts to the right and he makes two guys miss, jump cuts and circles the whole defense back to the left and runs it in for about a 40-yard touchdown.

Contain Chris Johnson and try to keep him under 100 yards, then make sure Vince Young doesn't beat you with his feet if he's their starter. If we do those two things, and we force them to throw, then I like our chances this week. I like our chances already because we're at home, but if we do those things then I think we will dominate.

The TItans will beat us with the deep ball. Chris Johnson is just gonna' be setting the table. Just got to keep those receivers in front of the defenders...not behind them. Nate Washington is likely going to be the man to watch...Moss will be the distraction this week.
