Section 1 of the post-Jets, pre-Saints mailbag:
From Dave (@angryvet59):
Does Miami have consistency in the OC next year? Which become as soon as higher, the hotfoot blockading or an-over 200-pound merit that hits the holes & can damage contact? Devour your work Alain.
Hello Dave, first off thanks. Enormous OC question and I in fact don’t know the procedure that’s going to play out, despite the indisputable reality that it will be that George Godsey will proceed calling the plays enjoy he’s doing now and he and Eric Studesville will proceed keeping co-OC titles. As for the running game, yeah, I are inclined to give Duke Johnson rather extra of the credit rating than the O-line towards the Jets because he did this form of correct job of making the dazzling cuts after which breaking tackles. It primarily become as soon as an very fair appropriate effort by Johnson.
From jorge boyd (@raga1922):
Hi Alain immediately I primarily have two questions: Can AVG take the next stage and modified into a celeb? What makes the front seven of the Saints particular and manufacture you contemplate we are in a position to hotfoot on them enough to be balanced on offense?
Hello Jorge, I’d argue that AVG is having fun with celeb soccer on the present time, but to attain “celeb” stage it’s going to take immense stats and that manner sacks and forced fumbles. Nevertheless, every other time, he’s been having fun with tall. The Saints defense is loaded with quality avid gamers in every unit and as soon as they’re dazzling, it’s among the many higher teams in the NFL. And they clearly have been dazzling towards the Bucs, and I manufacture contemplate the Dolphins are going to have a irritating time running the ball on them.
From Reza Hariri (@Therealrezpect1):
It could perchance well no longer be restful knowing, but I manufacture contemplate Jackson is having fun with higher a week. Even though a piece in growth, manufacture you contemplate the young line and the young coach are increasing and jelling sooner than our eyes? If growth continues, manufacture you stare a RT being simplest self-discipline to upgrade next year?
Hello Reza, reasonably worthy believe all the things you acknowledged dazzling there, collectively with a must upgrade at dazzling handle.
From RICHARD J. LEONARD (@SLICK6971):
The Saints did not have their running game going thoroughly, so ought to restful this be a correct game to rely on everyone in the box and heavy blitzing?
Hello Richard, no subject what an opponent’s running game is doing, heavy blitzing is what the Dolphins manufacture simplest. It’s furthermore foremost to worth that the Saints played the Bucs with out their two starting tackles, Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk. Truth is, I’d alarm extra about Alvin Kamara in the passing game than the hotfoot game Monday night.
From Miguel Gonzalez (@MigzSwervin):
I know I am opening myself as much as loss of life by stoning, but what are your ideas on Tua’s underthrow to Wilson in the first half of? IMO, Tua had time and if Wilson had caught the ball in inch, that become as soon as 6. Correct an off 1st half of or is that play fodder for Tua’s arm strength doubters?
Hello Miguel, sure, you’re no longer going to be making guests with that question. LOL. Without question, that become as soon as a execrable chase over by Tua and with out question it’s going to be fodder for these that question Tua’s arm strength. And it wasn’t top-of-the-line chase enjoy that. There become as soon as an out chase to Parker over the sideline that floated rather and naturally there become as soon as the exhaust-six where the ball correct didn’t come by there snappy enough. Nevertheless I’ll voice it dazzling right here: No subject how strongly you toughen Tua, when you happen to may perchance per chance well’t acknowledge that his arm strength isn’t easiest, then you certainly’re correct being blind or cussed.
From ChrisDavis (@KyLouFinFan):
Thanks for the work. Shiny they correct signed Johnson to the energetic roster, what is the sense that he or Lindsay may perchance be the RB1 going forward?
Hello Chris, if I know the Dolphins enjoy I know the Dolphins, don’t be greatly surprised if over the final three games, Johnson begins one, Lindsay begins one and Myles Gaskin begins one. I correct don’t contemplate the Dolphins teaching workers believes in the realization of a feature merit, and that’s primarily primarily based on how they’ve operated ever since they took over in 2019.
From Ticket Rodriguez (@MarkRodSTL):
I know the Saints have a correct defense and I know the Saints have the Bucs’ number. Nevertheless what opportunities manufacture you stare the Dolphins taking on offense?
Hello Ticket, yeah, it’s going to be rather the insist for the Dolphins offense if the Saints formulation to play enjoy they did towards Tampa Bay. The Dolphins want to fabricate offensively what they’ve carried out since the beginning of the a success scuttle (with the exception of for the Jets and Houston games), and that’s swiftly passing and the occasional shot down the subject. What the offense can’t manufacture is turn the ball over. One more tall running efficiency would be awesome, despite the indisputable reality that I primarily have a irritating time seeing it.
From Ken Dasher (@kdash65):
Hi Alain! First, I certainly contemplate we are in a position to confuse Taysom and merit it a low-scoring game, but what weak point can we take merit of to give our offense a possibility? 2d, Lamb Lies Down on Broadway or Selling England by the Pound?
Hello Ken, no longer a full bunch of weaknesses in that Saints defense if it’s dazzling — because the Bucs chanced on out Sunday night. As acknowledged sooner than, the key for me is for the offense no longer to lose the game and give the defense a possibility to exhaust because I manufacture contemplate they would well come by existence depressing for Hill. As for the 2d question, which I love, my determined replacement would be “Selling England By The Pound,” which is in a shut bustle for my popular Genesis album with “Trick Of The Tail.” As a final worth for my prog rock guests, my two popular Genesis tracks are potentially “Firth of Fifth” and “Ripples.”
