Again, I have more questions than answers regarding the front seven setting the tone.
So far there wasn't much improvement there as they gave up 4.2 ypc vs the Patriots compared to their 4.5 ypc last year. Of course, losing Raekwan Davis after 5 plays affected the run defense, but they weren't doing well while he was in.
New Miami Herald's beat writer Daniel O (It took me a while to be able to spell 'Mando's last name correctly ... thank, Herald) had these observations in the Patriots game. While the mistakes are
correctable, we've been seeing this problem for many years.

Coaches and players will tell you those things can be fixed. Time will tell if the decision to part ways with McKinney was a mistake.
