FORMER COACHING TANDEM TO FACE-OFF AGAINST EACH OTHER ON SUNDAY

jasontaylor_330.jpgMiami head coach Cam Cameron, the former offensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers, will now be looking at his former coaching partner from the other sidelines on Sunday when the Cowboys come to play the Dolphins.  For the last three years, Wade Phillips and he were main elements in a team that went to the AFC Championship game.  Phillips was the defensive coordinator and Cameron the offensive coordinator on a very good Chargers team, of course if you have a player like LaDanian Tomlinson, it wouldn’t be that terribly difficult to be the offensive coordinator.

So the coaching match-up this Sunday will be extremely important for both teams, especially with both having lost key defensive players in Week 1.  To say that both coaches are very familiar with the other’s style of play is to certainly state-the-obvious, but the question will be who is able to game-plan for that better than the other.  This could be a very early indicator of just how good Coach Phillips can be as a head coach in the NFL.  Add to that the fact that Jason Garrett served as the Dophins QB coach for the last 2 seasons, and it certainly seems to give an advantage to the Cowboys.

As for the performances of each team last week, the Dophins allowed the Redskins more yardage in one game than any team all last season with 400, 191 yards of it rushing, but only 16 points.  However they still have some great defensive players in LB Zach Thomas and DE Jason Taylor.   Of course the Cowboys gave up 478 total yards to the Giants and 35 points,  but the offenses don’t compare, and that’s the best chance the Cowboys will have to win for now with such a beat up defense.  If the Cowboys can keep Jason Taylor out of their backfield somewhat and give Romo time to throw, he should have another good game and lead them to victory.

Prediction:  Cowboys 24, Dophins 17.
