Philbin’s thoughts on slowing Bills’ ‘D’

Posted by Chris Brown on September 27, 2015 – 12:25 pm

In Week 2 Patriots QB Tom Brady effectively neutralized Buffalo’s vaunted pass rush with lightning quick throws and quick decision making. Many have tried to duplicate it, but not everyone is Brady. That’s why Miami head coach Joe Philbin has some other ideas.

“Well, you’d love to have misdirection. You want to get the ball out of your hand. You want to be sound in your blocking schemes,” Philbin said. “Again, sometimes you may isolate one guy that you want to give extra help to here or there. You don’t want to do the same thing every single time. I think you’ve got to be able to, for lack of a better term, throw a curve ball or a change up every now and then at their D-line is something you want to do.”

Miami’s offensive line, which is likely to be without starting LT Branden Albert, has given up 18 sacks in their last four games with Buffalo.
