Quote:
That includes both returning players and new. Coyle said the Dolphins were lucky to nab both Ellerbe and Wheeler, who will replace Karlos Dansby and Kevin Burnett in the starting lineup.

“Honestly, we never thought we would be able to get both here and we did,” he added. “I think our ability to make plays at that position certainly will be advanced coming this fall.”

I fully expected Coyle to say he was disappointed and unsure why they were brought to Miami.

That indicates to me that Coyle was in the team rebuilding process, and that Ireland/Philben valued his opinion on how to improve his defense.

Whether it works out or not, two thumbs from me. This is the same approach that Harbaugh takes at SF and I like it.

:yay: :yay:

Post Re: DC coyle: Lucky to nab both Ellerbe and Wheeler
I haven't really seen their stats on this (which is why I ask), but with all the talk about signing these two and releasing Dansby/Burnette to create more turnovers, is Ellerbee and Wheeler known for getting interceptions?

Dannelle Ellerbee has 2 forced fumbles and 1 INT in his career and Wheeler has 4 forced fumbles and 0 INT's in his

I'm just hoping at the very least that they are not a step backwards from Dansby and Burnette. Not to concerned with Wheeler but Ellerbe is still kind of an unknown to me.

Both Ellerbe and Wheeler fly around the field much faster than Dansby and Burnett, which is the main reason why Miami targeted these two backers.

It was said that they were brought in to try to increase pass rush from the linebacker unit.

They are both due to have breakout seasons.

Heck yeah FINese, I think so. Our D cord will know how to use them better than their former DC's that's for sure.
