I also agree with BlastFurnace, Peezy did look slow. Saw him playing his role in prepping the team with his pre-game rant. The 'phins were into it! Peezy does possess great charisma! But, he did get burned a few times by not shedding his blocker. Saw one lowlight as he was way out of position while the RB ran into the endzone, in his lane. All he did was back pedal, side step, engage the blocker a little, and watched. No real contact. I was actually a bit sad for a moment. Damn Peezy, where you at? I sincerely hope it gets better for Peezy. Except when they play the Steelers!
I felt bad for him last week. I was at the Redskins game (can't pass up free club level tix!) and we were right behind the Dolphins bench. He was mostly hanging by himself on the sideline and didn't seem to have that comraderie on the field he had with the Steelers.
I can't feel TOO bad for him though because I'm sure he likes the paychecks!
