Miami 25 Buffalo 16
Watching the game from my Somerset,Ma home i sat here thinking why isnt Ronnie Brown getting more touches?
He had 15 touches, 14 of which were running plays. Caught 1 pass, for 5 yards. To me the Dolphins need to give him the ball much more than Ricky Williams. Ricky only had 7 carries & 2 rec's, but lost a fumble in which the Bills scored on.
Ronnie is a big time playmaker, and i dont think the coaches are using him to his full potential. He needs 20 carries a game, and throw the ball to him 2-5 times out of the backfield please. He's elusive and can break tackles so why only 1 rec?
On the positive side of the game, Chad Pennington & Ted Ginn Jr looked wonderful. Ginn set a career high with 7 rec's for 175 yards! Granted he was covered by a slowed McGee, but thats great coaching. Pennington didnt miss much, and didnt make the same mistakes as he did vs Baltimore.
Defensive side - once again Joey Porter played a great game. He was near the Qb all game, thus forcing Edwards to make hurried throws. Im leaning towards Porter for the defensive MVP right now, since he's the NFL Leader in sacks. Porter and Ware (cowboys) are playing great football, and i think Porter is being over looked so far this year. Finally the money is paying off.
Special Teams - Fields did a great job punting,pinning the bills deep inside their own zone late in the 4th Q, almost securing the win for Miami.
Overall i give Miami a B+ for this game
Love to see them work in Ronnie Brown alot more, and get some consistancy from the wideouts like they got today.
