Know Your Enemy: The Miami Dolphins



    In honor of the Beatles music being released on iTunes, the Fab Four agreed to help Bears fans get to know the 5-4 Dolphins from the AFC East.

    Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da: Life goes on for the Dolphins, despite their spate of injuries. They lost two quarterbacks on Sunday, and had an injury report that was a mile long. Still, they have to find a way to play without the Chads Henne and Pennington.

    Any Time At All: The Fins Brandon Marshall has had two breakout games where he caught the ball at will. Against the Jets, he had 166 receiving yards and in a win over the Packers, he pulled down 10 catches for 127 yards. His past two games have been busts -- around 30 yards each. With the right quarterback, he can have a field day with the Bears anemic pass coverage.

    Baby, You Can Drive My Car
    : Henne will likely be forced to turn over the keys of the offense to Tyler Thigpen, a journeyman who was chilling out in the role of third-string QB in Miami before Henne and Pennington went down with injury. He finished out the win over the Titans for the Dolphins, but the idea of him running an entire game is frightening to Dolphins fans. He has 20 touchdown passes in a four-year career, but also has 16 interceptions.

    Dizzy Miss Lizzy
    : The Dolphins pass rush has the ability to make Jay Cutler dizzy. Led by Cameron Wake, who has nine sacks, their 24 sacks puts them among the best defenses in the league, and they are skilled at limiting passing yards. Opponents average just 314 yards per game in the air.
