How well do you think he will adapt to man coverage? I don't feel a need to change that up, especially not to suit one player.

I think he can play either style, he just plays his absolute best as a Zone corner.

Gotcha. Well, I have been discussing some potential trades, so we will see if we can get them over the line and make a couple of changes that will hopefully strengthen us even further. We wonít be going over board though. Do you feel the depth at CB and LB is still our biggest area for improvement?

Considering our defense is 3rd in the league in points allowed, I feel like it is a luxury to upgrade at any part of our roster defensively.

There is always room for improvement Coach, perhaps we just call up Coleman for the third spot in the CB depth chart. What about the offensive side of the team, in terms of where we can upgrade. TE and WR's? Not implying I am not happy with what we have got but an upgrade here or there could really see us push on for a post-season challenge.

We could definitely benefit offensively from adding an impact wide receiver across from Randolph.  A Michael Hodge-type, or another big-play receiver would really make us hard to gameplan against.

I will see what I can do Coach. I think we will stick with what we have at the moment and let Coleman develop further with our minor league.

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

I think it was tough game, a well fought victory in the end but DC caused us problems man, and I have to give them credit for taking us all the way in the second half of the game. They seemingly took our offence out of its rhythm in the second half, but we held out in the end and our guys put in a gutsy performance. We were clinical when it mattered and got ourselves into a strong position, but ultimately we should have seen out the game more comfortably.

2. Give us an evaluation of the first half of the season for your team, who has stood out both good and bad?

I think we have had a cracking first half to the season, lets just hope this weeks game is not reflective of how well our season will end up. We have raised the bar, developed a system that is putting the fear into opponents and yet there is still belief that there is more to come. We have some young talent that will take time to mature and adapt to the pro-game, but a lot of the guys we brought in have hit the ground running! Ralph is a guy who has stood our the most, we brought in Haas and from the position he had last season when he earned that starting spot for the team, he will know exactly how we function as a management team. The praise Haas was getting pre-season only pushed him to improve himself and you have seen the results of that so far this season. I don't think we have anyone who has been poor, we have a couple of experienced heads who are starting to see that natural decline in their game, but they are still an asset.

3. With where you sit in the standings, how do you feel about your chances of meeting your owners expectations and how do you grade your performance as GM, what about your job security?

I am feeling very comfortable right now. I came here in with a project in mind, and I'd be shocked if the owner were not happy with how it is progressing. We look on target for our goals, and I can't for that Orlando match!

4. Who is your league-wide Mid-season MVP?  Who has been the most surprising under performer?

Honestly, I am very much focused on our team and the other teams in this league only occupy my mind when they are next up in the fixture list or we're looking at potential trades. I believe Smith is having another stellar year, and after arguably missing out last year on the award front, I feel he could be pushing for it this year. As for under-performing, I can't say.

5. Which of your division rivals has surprised you the most? How and Why?

Honestly, Orlando. Now I know with Patton they are always going to be a big team in the league, I just doubted GM Cory was the man who could see them overthrow the Nighthawks. Charlotte would be the obvious answer, but I think given the talent they brought in, they are performing as well as I thought they would.

6. With the Trade Deadline coming up this week, Do you see yourself as a buyer, a Seller, or do you plan to hold fast with what you have?

There may be some moves, we always have to explore the options available, but at this point we would only be looking to continue with our development of the team, which doesn't usually involve selling.

7. What is your opinion on the league's newly announced luxury tax rule, do you believe it is fair, and do you believe it will benefit the league?

I think it is fair, the previous had the odd controversial moment, and having this in place will see that sort of issue a thing in the past.

8. Talk about your game this upcoming week, what do you need to focus on most?

We have Lincoln visiting, who have just made some moves in the transfer market I hear, so I am sure GM Wrong has made moves to strengthen his team and we will have to face that challenge! It is a dangerous time to play a team, when they are buoyed by fresh blood, but I believe in the team we have and I honestly feel we can beat anyone in the league, and Lincoln are not exempt from that.

Hola GM Garcia! 

You've done wonderful since you arrived here in Miami!  This season has been great, and I expect it to continue to get better!  We're on pace for all of our goals, as you said to the press, and I couldn't be happier!  Keep doing what you're doing my magnificent friend! 

I'll tell you what, If we can win the division, I'll gladly reward you with some off-season bonus PR!

We'll keep on pushing for that divisional title and then see where we go from there! I think we have moved a lot quicker than anticipated when I first took the project on, but I feel there is still a lot of room for improvement!

Agreed. What were they doing differently in that second half? Or was it us that dropped off?

In the 3rd quarter we had a fumble from Haas that killed a drive, then they really stuffed us on 3rd and short twice, the other drive was killed by a 15 yard penalty on Randolph that made it 3rd and 17 and then Glass broke up the deep pass... 

In the 4th quarter tehy ran the ball well to keep the clock running on their side, the three times we had the ball in the 4th quarter a Peacock sack killed us, then our longer drive ended with back to back pass disruptions from Glass, and our final drive we were just working to run out the clock.

I guess we couldn't break that glass ceiling in the second half... I'll see myself out!

I guess we did well to see it out with the shift in momentum, says a lot about the character of our guys. How do you feel about the challenge of Lincoln, they have brought in Hodge, so I am sure they'll be searching him out for a successful debut. Should we shift things around to spoil that party?

We definitely want to focus on containing him, we saw him last year in Orlando and he put up big numbers on us. 

10 catches, 205 yards and 3 Touchdowns in those two games.

Would switching to man marking be more effective? They have weakened their overall receiving corps, which could work in our favour. I feel in Carson we have someone who is more capable at disrupting his game than what we had last year.

Do you think we should up our blitz percentage too? Bloom could be out, and if he isn't, he could be more wary of getting hit, maybe that additional pressure we put on him and our coverage of Hodge could work well together?

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

I am very satisfied with the victory! Our running game hit a real peak this week against a really tough Lincoln team, and whilst Ralph and Haas have been great I do think that our offensive line doesnít not get some of the recognition for how effective they are at enabling our running game, that is so key for us. As far as the game goes though, we got off to a great start and and just took the game to Lincoln who for that fifteen minutes or so could not handle us. It was part of the game plan this week to go at them and I am glad to see it paid off.

2. With the All-Star Rosters being announced this week, what is your take on the composition, any snubs or surprises from your own team?

Look, I understand why GM Kirk was afforded the opportunity to manage this All Star team, but given his selections, I am not sure how he got those 60 odd wins. I appreciate that he has a lot of trust in his own players and staff but to overlook as much talent in this conference as he did, to me is a just a little obnoxious. I am frustrated at the lack of recognition for my players and staff, especially defensively, so I may be being harsh on the guy but our players and staff continuely being overlooked and underestimated is beginning to grate a little.

3. What news stories stood out to you this week?

GM Pancho is in an unfortunate position with his team as they are a franchise that expects excellence and has little room for anything else. But when you are a winning team, as a GM you know that that will be the expectation from the owner and the fans, I do feel with the spine they have that one good off season can make them contenders again. In other stories, I think someone needs to have a chat with the Jackson lad, this isnít an individual sport.

4. Talk about your game this upcoming week, what do you need to focus on most?

We have a few knocks and bumps from the last game so we may have to re-evaluate our strategy against Long Beach, they have had a few changes, but are always a tough team to break down. I am confident of us continuing our streak though.

If ever there were proof of people over looking the Killer Whales and our talent... the All-Star rosters are that proof.  We're using it as a rally cry, and the boys are motivated to absolutely shred the Mermen.

I am glad it is motivating the team! Long Beach wonít know what hit them this week. I am sure Ralph will do us proud though. How are you feeling about Mac taking that number one WR spot this week? His performances have been getting better in my opinion.

I'm glad it's a situation where we're facing an inferior team, it helps the learning curve for him becoming the primary target.

That is always a plus in these situations. How do you feel about the intensity of our running game? It is getting us results, but with the knock Haas has can we maintain that level of performance with Hardy getting more time with the ball at hand? I felt he did well against Lincoln.

I believe that with our players at RB and with our offensive line we can run with anyone.  I think Hardy will be fine as the 2nd man in the stack if it comes to it.
