Patriots @ Dolphins

Each time two AFCE teams face off during the season we will have two regular bloggers debate the game. The format is based on question they will ask each other. Thanks to all parties for participating. Enjoy….

Who are the 5 starters on the OL?

1fishfan72

You’ll know them by name in a few weeks.

LT: Branden Albert, 6′ 5″ 316 lbs., 2013 Pro Bowler, 83 NFL starts

LG: Daryn Colledge, 6’4″ 308 lbs. 108 NFL starts

C: Samson Satele 6’3″ 300 lbs. 98 NFL starts

RG: Shelley Smith 6′ 4″ 312 lbs 20 NFL games played

RT:Ja’Waun James 6′ 6″ 315lbs. 49 consecutive starts for the Tenn. Volunteers

Probably the most seasoned Starting O Line in the AFCE as far as NFL games played

Thanks for asking

With Gronk still recovering from an array of injuries, how much of a part do you think he will play in the first game of the season?

BoBtheNailer

From what we’re hearing in NE, it sounds like he’ll be starting the game and playing a huge part in the offense.

BoBtheNailer

What should the Dolphins do on offense to have a chance to win this game?

1fishfan72

If I’m coaching the Fish I would want to control the ball and the clock, keeping pretty boy on the sidelines. Outside of the Red Zone I would focus solely on getting First downs and keeping my offense on the field. I would give the Patriots a double shot of future HOFer Gator Hoskins

1fishfan72

The Patriots defense was ranked in the bottom 10 last season, what player/position matchups do you think will cause the most problems for the defense?

BoBtheNailer

I think the combination of Miller & Moreno could give the NE run defense problems considering this game will the 1st game back for Mayo & Wilfork.

BoBtheNailer

What should the Dolphins do on defense to have a chance to win this game?

1fishfan72

Obviously the Fins have to put pressure on Tommy boy or he will eat you up, and you have to slow down the running game. Stopping the run is my biggest concern with the Fins defense

1fishfan72

What is the total years of NFL experience of the top two receivers and who are they?

BoBtheNailer

Danny Amendola & Julian Edelman each have 6 years in the NFL

BoBtheNailer

Give me a name on each side of the ball that you expect to have success vs NE in this game (someone not named Harold Hoskins).

1fishfan72

Well that is tough one because on the offensive side I do expect Gator to start his march to Canton, other than Gator, I think the underneath catches by Wallace will surprise some folks, he will have 7-10 catches and push a 100 yards on the day…On the defensive side of the ball I expect our Monster Defensive ends to have a Field Day, Cam Wake and Olivier Vernon will get to Sweetie Boy 4 times in this game, a quarterback fumble is very possible, and we could get our first look at Little Hands Jimmmyyy

1fishfan72

Since we all know that the road to the AFCE Championship goes through the Patriots, at least for another season or two, which team do you see as the most likely to upset and unseat the Patriots This year?

BoBtheNailer

If I had to choose another AFCE team i’d go with the Jets. Their D always gives Brady a tough game and i think they added some solid players on offense.

Well done to both of you, and thanks for your time. One final question, who wins this game?

 

BoBtheNailer   27-17 Patriots

1fishfan72   24-20 Dolphins
