    We certainly have things to work out and we definitely played a bad game but I still think this is a good team.

    This was a pretty classic trap game and we were dealing with significant injuries pre-game and dealt with a bunch of O-line injuries during the game. I think if we weren't completely out of time in OT, we'd have run our normal offense and won. Obviously, we don't want to be winning games in OT against the Jets but we've all watched enough to know that the NFL is crazy. The Ravens should have lost to the Lions last week. The Saints lost to the Giants at home. It happens.

    All that being said, the battle in the trenches yesterday is a big concern. Wilson was getting sacked 5 times per game and we sacked him once. We allowed 21 pressures to a team that had 21 pressures all season. This game really reminded me of the Bengals game last year in terms of how we played. The O-line hasn't convinced me this year but I thought that the D was making strides so that was disappointing.

    I don’t follow the press conferences much but have any reporters questioned why we choose to have our corners play so far off the line. I recall the colts game they still chose to run a corner blitz with our cb playing that far off the los.

    We actually had 16 QB hurries on 34 passes to their 21 hurries on 49 passes. We just didn't get sacks.

    Did Downing make any adjustments? Seemed it was consistent ‘run, run, sack’ most of the day.
    Why not chip block with TEs? Or try Henry & McNichols in the backfield on shotgun sets? Or more FB sets (our FBs had 5 snaps between them) to help in pass protection?
    Just brutal. Tanny will get hurt at this rate..

    Taking Henry out on 3rd and short is the dumbest thing I have ever seen us do!

    That's interesting. I do remember a few off the top of my head where Wilson evaded the pass rush. Tannehill did very little of that.
