    we did not need a new defensive coordinator. the offense keep putting them into holes and the had to play for too many plays. we just did not have the personnel to shut teams down. the defense was fine.

    When all Miami did was basically play a base defense with very little blitzing, they need to change things up. When you can’t get it done with a base defense you have to start taking chances, and they didn’t.
