Hamilton's offensive style differs from Arians'

(Continued)

“Those are two pretty good weapons from an offensive standpoint that defensively you’ve got to make sure you tend to. Not that we don’t have to tend to the other guys, but there are key components that aren’t there right now.”

One big component on defense for the Dolphins is defensive end Cameron Wake.

“Yeah, we’re going to know where he’s at. It’s really no secret. Pretty much 99.9 percent of the time, he’ll be lined up to our offense’s right, defensive left. That’s one thing, to know where he is. It’s a different thing getting him blocked. The guy is very, very athletic, very powerful. He’s got a nice toolbox full of rushes,” the Colts coach explained.

“He’s good versus the run. Obviously 15 sacks a year ago, two and a half sacks in the opener versus Cleveland. He’s a great player. Great, great player. So we got to make sure we tend to him.”

Irsay strikes again

Team owner Jim Irsay issued a Twitter challenge to the Colts’ offensive line Wednesday.

“Raiders/Colts/1) we gotta protect #12 (Luck) better...and that includes more than just OL (offensive line)...it’s backs, TEs (tight ends), coaches on blitz pick ups...I DEMAND better,” Irsay tweeted.

“Dolphins/Colts-Make no mistake about it/The Fish CAN and WILL bring the HEAT...We gotta MAN-UP and confront HEAT with a NASA-like Heat-Shield.”

After spending heavily on the veteran free agent market during the offseason, which included the signing of offensive guard Donald Thomas and offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus, Indianapolis allowed four sacks of quarterback Andrew Luck in the win over Oakland.

Improving the Colts’ pass protection was a major point of emphasis in the offseason after Luck was sacked 41 times as a rookie.
