Inside Enemy Territory: 5 Questions About the Miami Dolphins

Inside Enemy Territory is a feature where I ask a blogger for the Patriots’ upcoming opponent questions about their team and the upcoming game. Today’s Q&A comes from Brian Miller of the Miami Dolphins blog, Phin Phanatic. Miller discusses the Dolphins’ turnaround, Matt Moore, the coaching situation, how the Dolphins can win tomorrow, and more. Phin Phanatic is one of the premier Dolphins blogs on the internet and worthy of a visit to get a knowledgeable glimpse at the enemy.

Here’s our Q&A…

1. The Dolphins seem like a totally different team than the one the Patriots saw Week One. What has led to the turnaround?

Honestly? They played bad teams. For all the hype about their turnaround, they beat Washington, Buffalo twice, Kansas City after Cassell before Orton, and then the reeling Raiders.   In that same span, they lost to the Cowboys and Eagles.

2. Does QB Matt Moore have a longterm future in Miami?

Moore is under contract for another year which is one year more than Chad Henne. Long term? I doubt it. He is a capable back-up but he has not had the pressure of having to win. When he took over the season was already just about over. Ask me that in week four next season.

3. Who are the Dolphins looking at to be their next head coach?

Fans are divided and the Dolphins are not talking. Truth be told everyone is a possibility and no one is a definite.

4. Seeing as though the Patriots’ defense hasn’t really improved since Week One, are the Dolphins licking their chops to get another crack at them?

Reggie Bush is. I have to imagine that the Dolphins players want to make a statement but I am not sold on our defense stopping the Pat offense for four quarters. Still, it should be a far better game than week one.

5. Will the Dolphins play the potential spoiler in the Patriots’ pursuit of the #1 seed in the playoffs?
They can if they use ball control to keep Brady off the field, and if the weather keeps the Patriots offense on the ground.
