The Miami Dolphins will host the Atlanta Falcons tonight on a nationally televised game and for Defensive Coordinator Vance Joseph it is really very simple, “do your job!”
“We’ve got a lot more work to do,” Ndamukong Suh acknowledged this week. “I think at the end of the day, it’s about going out there and executing [and] putting yourself in the right position so you can make the right tackles. We weren’t always in the right position to make the proper tackles.”
with cuts looming, Head Coach Adam Gase has to get his team down to 75 this weekend.
“Teams are doing the same thing that we do. As soon as that waiver wire comes out, that personnel department, they don’t go home. They sit there and grind and go through their information . They start watching tape on guys and start looking at where we feel we might be light in a certain position. There’s a lot of work that goes into it, and you have to be somewhat strategic as far as who you possibly let go in this first round. You’re hoping you make the right decision on guys and then at the same time you’re hoping those guys get a chance to get somewhere else. It’s a tough deal because when you start developing relationships with these guys, cutting these guys is not easy.
After the Cowboys ran up 300 plus yards in the first half last weekend, Coach Gase will have a lot to evaluate as will Coach Vance.
