standpoint. i still believe, because when i talk to these guys in the locker room, they are not fractured that i think this week, they will go down. i've felt in the last couple of week and i have avenue been dead wrong. but i think they will get a win against miami. >> the last couple of week when they played the teams, each team has one marquee player. miami doesn't really have that. does that make them a tougher team to play. >> they ran reggie bush a lot last week. that surprised us. he has been kind of a scat back, punt runner, a specialist if you will. they do have one big-time guy with brandon marshal. he is a beast. d-hall loves the challenge. they will have one this week. matt moore, the quarterback, who is a backup himself, they've got some backup quarterbacks. when youpaper, they don't scare anybody at 1- 7. i don't think they should scare the redskins.
