Buffalo Bills’ Public Enemy In Week 7: Miami Dolphins’ Cameron Wake
Since coming from the CFL in 20o9, Miami Dolphins pass rushing monster Cameron Wake has been a non-stop terror for opposing team’s offensive lines, quarterbacks and offensive coordinators giving them all some sleepless nights, not to mention a lot more time in the film room to learn how to stop him. Since coming to South Beach in 2009, Wake has had 45.5 sacks and has been a two-time member of the Pro Bowl and even last season was named All-Pro as he made the seamless transition from 3-4 pure pass rusher to 4-3 left end. Do not be fooled by the lack of size for this defensive end at 6-foot-2 and weighing only 236 pounds, as Wake has the highly coveted non-stop motor, not to mention how fast he his first step his and he does not take off the gas at all for the entire game.
The man for the Buffalo Bills that will be ultimately responsible to engage Wake early and often will be veteran right tackle Erik Pears whom is much more of the big mauling physical offensive tackle as compared to the lineman that are light on their feet as he is 6-foot-8 and weighs 316 pounds. Pears will have to use every bit of his massive frame to try to protect for quarterback Thad Lewis who is making his second consecutive start for the injured E.J. Manuel and one can only hope he can build on what he did last week versus the Cincinnati Bengals which seems likely he can.
All and all, it should be a great game down in South Beach between these two longtime AFC East rivals.
