McIntosh moving to guard
The move which has been in the works the entire week is meant to relieve the pressure teams have been putting on quarterback Daunte Culpepper. He has been sacked 15 times this year, tied for most in the NFL.
Jacox, a journeyman who took over the starting spot when Bennie Anderson went down with a triceps injury earlier this season, has struggled. He has yielded a minimum of three sacks in the last two weeks.
Jacox is nonetheless expected to be ready to platoon with McIntosh if the former tackle struggles at the new position or needs a breather.
Watch for the Dolphins to also make a greater use of the shotgun formation and use the play-action pass a lot less. This is also meant to help Culpepper avoid sacks.
Finally, as reported earlier this week in The Herald, Travis Daniels is making his first start of the season at cornerback.
Watch for the changes during the game and let me if you think they're working.
