I am enjoying the wins, but tonites MNF game really hit home. Miami had no business loosing that game, but couldn't find the big plays to pull it out. We are based on the same type of mentality, strong defense and a good rushing game.
To me, Pennington and Hill have this in common.
Watching the game with my roommate, I called Sean Hill a poor man's Chad Pennington: both largely make good decisions but are betrayed by sub-par arm strength. Still, Hill has shown that he's capable of leading long drives when Raye opens up the playbook. What troubles me is that we already know how teams are going to play us defensively--8 or 9 in the box every time. We can't simply depend on Gore's outstanding ability to win us games; sooner or later, we're going to need to rely on Hill's arm and the success of our dink-and-dunk passing game. Above all, we are going to need great defensive play every week to stay competitive.
