Driving concern for me: It's in Miami. I don't know if it's the humidity or what, but we have not played well in Miami.
Now, the following is just a quick analysis based on stats, so take it for whatever you think it's worth.
They're a fairly balanced offense, about 58% to 42%, rush to pass. And almost half of those carries are Duke Johnson. While that may play to our strength, run D and scheming for one guy, their pass game is like ours in that they seem to like to set-up the big strike. Rightly or wrongly, I really think our D should be able to do pretty well. After that first quarter or so last year, we held them in check until Groh's 4th quarter flop hit. Offensively, we moved the ball and scored fairly well in the 2nd and 3rd qtrs.
Last week, in my vpi prediction, I noted that my concern was GT getting rid of our self-inflicted stuff on offense, but couldn't bring myself to type a vpi victory even then, though it was what I thought. This week, I still don't have a feel for whether our O gets out of its funk, but the news from practice has been somewhat encouraging.
I still think we should be able to do better than last year but will yield some to the setting: 32 - 24 GT.
