    Seems to me like the Pats effectively stymied it the second time they played Miami last yr because they were more prepared for it.

    Vince Wilfork, yes that is the answer.  Did u see him collapse the line in the second Miami game, he almost singlehandedly stopped the wildcat.

    Re: what can stop the wildcat?

    The Miami WildCat is grossly overrated. Two years ago, the Jets gave us fits with the WildCat for a series with a real QB in there with multiple skills...Brad Smith. With Mangini gone, we are going to see a lot of this with Smith, Washington, etc. One way or another, we had better be prepared to stop this offense.

    that would have to be the key.wilfork or someone else getting into the backfeild,and disrupting it before it happens.

    Outscore them by 20 points. Like we did last year.

    What stops everything?

    Penetration and gap integrity.

    If Dolphins fan really believes the single wing is unstoppable, he might want to revisit either the Pats or the Green New Jersy rematch, or the playoff debacle against Baltimore.

    Ain't nobody gonna be surprised this year, except perhaps Dolphins fan himself.

    Agree with PMike on this one. Get penetration at the line. The only wrinkle could be Pat White who has the option to throw the ball (and probably has a better arm than Pennington). No one will be surprised this year and thus it could easily be less effective.

    I think that you'll find that Pat White won't want to run the Wildcat,he really is a classic dropback passer who's able to scramble because he has above average speed,and just like Mike Vick he's on the small side so when he runs hit him and hit him hard and you'll soon break him of the running habit.Also don't be surprised to see the Patriots employ a gadget 4-3 hybrid in an attempt too control the line of scrimmage.

    Our defense has gotten better and TB is back running the offense.  The coaching staff has had a year to study the thing.  They aren't going to surprise people with that formation this year.  

    The key is getting ahead to take them out of the wildcat.  The Pats have the offense to do just that.

    Re: what can stop the wildcat?

    The Wildcat is here and will appear quite a bit this year, especially in a copycat league. However, it will not be as effective as it was during the first NE - Miami game last year. It really depends on a team not being ready for it for the play to work, and the better D's figured out what was going on.

    Miami should be congratulated for that first game - it was a really bold move, but it'll only get them so far... They have a lot more to do before they can prove that their ready to take over the AFC East from the Pats. It's still the Pats division by far.

    ***Also, let's not forget the freakishly low turnover rate that Miami had last year, which really helped them win. Anyone really think that that will happen again?

    Re: what can stop the wildcat?

    The wildcat is a set of plays that has existed from high school up its just more commonally called a single wing, its nothing special, normally because of the speed of NFL defenses it doesnt work to well in the NFL, just like the option. IT was a wrinkle that the Pats werent expecting and it bit them in the but, but i doubt it will happen again even it PAt white can pass the ball.

    Edge, Chad Pennington has always had a really low turnover stat, so as long as he is the qb, and the run game is still the focus they should have a low turnover ratio.

    Arkansas' Darren McFadden, runner-up for last year's Heisman Trophy, finished with 117 yards on 22 carries, It was very different from McFadden's performance last week when he tied the SEC single-game rushing record with 321 yards against South Carolina.

    "He's a great back," Tennessee linebacker Jerod Mayo said. "But he's not going to win the Heisman Trophy in Neyland Stadium."

    Mayo ran 33 yards for a touchdown after intercepting a pass by backup quarterback Nathan Emert with 2:46 left in the game.

    "Nobody thought we could win this game," Mayo said.

    Arkansas is where this thing really got cooking. The fins O cordinator was the O cordniator there with Felix Jones ( Cowboys) & McFadden (Oakland).
    However BB's new stud LB has been looking at this for 3+ years now. The key is speed and discipline on D along with good wrap-up tackling.

    Good point on the turnovers. They also had like 0 injury's last season

    A guy like Wilfork needs to collapse the line like someone previously said. The defense needs to know that they like to run it. And not be over aggressive in the secondary.

    The Wild Cat is a formation that is made out to be unstoppable but its very easy to stop. Just watch a college game and see how it can bite them in the but real fast.

    Pats defense did a great job adjusting to the Wildcat last year in the 2nd game. Miami's rush line was only 18 carries 66 yards and 1 touchdown. From what I've been reading on Rotoworld Pat White has been a huge disappointment in Miami's first
    few camps. His accuracy at QB isn't NFL ready. I expect to see the Dolphins trying a few wrinkles but they won't be nearly as successful as last year.

    Re: what can stop the wildcat?

    Simple. If the opposing quarterback is in the slot/setting up as a reciever, you line up A. Thomas in front of him and pop the QB in the face.

    Can someone tell me if that is considered roughing the passer? Seeing Pennington out there dancing around with no line protection last year was really getting to me.

    It isnt roughing the passer because Pennington would be considered a WR

    I'll actually be quite surprised if Pennington makes it through and entire season this year without missing a game.

    That second part is the part that is easily forgotten. While getting penetration is ALWAYS key to a strong defense, to beat the wildcat you are also going to need linebackers and defensive backs that are obedient enough to stick to their zones. The Wildcat depends on the defense shifting in one direction so they can open up lanes the other way. If everyone stays "home" those gaps just don't open up.

    May also be one of the reasons we added stronger CB's in Bodden and Springs.

    Re: what can stop the wildcat?

    I really don't think you are going to see the wildcat much this year. Miam's biggest weakness on offense last year(which you'd know if you follow the team closely) is their center Satele. He was vastly undersized and was overpowered often by bigger DT's. He's no longer the starting center(thanks Parcells). The obvious other weakness was at wideout. Pennington had a very good year for them but he obviously doesn't have the arm strength to stretch the field. I predict Henne will be playing more extensively than he did last year when he was a rookie. You are going to see a different team on offense this year especially with Ronnie Brown being completely healthy. Remember he was coming off surgery last year in the offseason.

    Outscore them by 35 points would be more efficent. In fact, the Pats need to run up the score as much as they can all season if given the chance.

    Re: what can stop the wildcat?

    You guys keep saying the the key to stoping the single wing is by getting pennitration but thats a very wide open way to look at it. Because the key to stoping any high powered offense is getting pennitration. The real key to stoping the single wing is....wait for it....preperation! Thats it, if you are prepared for it you can stop it. And no one gets his team ready to go like Bill Belichick so you better beleave that he is spending his offseason working on new ways to stop the single wing offense. I dont sweat the phins, they are a one trick pony.
