With players the likes of Marshawn lynch, randy moss, jake grove either signing with new teams or being traded, why have the dolphins done nothing to add some more depth, and help the ST unit? isnt there anyone paying attention in the dolphins FO? i hear j. jones was cut in seattle, to make room for lynch. he would be an upgrade in the return game, and could be a great change of pace back. i think the firing of the ST coach is addition by subtraction. but i believe there are good "role players" available for the dolphins to sign, but we have yet to see any moves.
as much as i hate to do it, lets look at the pats FO for a second. even if they keep moss. they will have 2-1st rounders (1 from Oakland which they got for trading an aging star). with Oakland's pick probably being a top 10 pick. if they do trade moss, rumors are they get a 3rd and a 4th for him. that is how the pats have stayed relevant for the the past 13 years.
so that would be 2-1's, 1-2, 2-3's, 2-4's, in next years draft and it's still October. first rate FO IMO. now look at the dolphins, our draft as of right now looks pretty basic 1-1, 0-2's, 1-3, 2-4's. we have busted on many 2nd and 3rd round picks in the last couple of years. cutting players and not getting anything in return for them, unless you count that Gatorade bath of jason taylor IN A JETS UNIFORM! and on top of that, they have yet to get back a 2nd round pick in next years draft that they traded for marshall. a quick comparison shows 7 draft picks for the pats to 4 picks for the dolphins, thats just in rounds 1-4.
i see lots of talent in the dolphins, and i still think they should win every game they play. (proved by the NFL sunday ticket i pay to much money for for). but apearantly talent doesn't equal production. which falls on the coaching staff and FO. until the big wigs stop playing patty cake and really turn the corner, miami will struggle to be anything more than a .500 club.
im 28 years old and have been watching to phin's with my dad since 1993. I'm ready for some damn playoff runs! this regime rebuilt a faltering team, but they can't become complacent. they have two weeks to make adjustments, get healthy and get ready for a good Green Bay team. lets see what they do............
