The Miami dolphins are aggressively trying to improve through free agency. Reggie Bush is the newest miami dolphin, and with Kyle Orton looking to be the next addition, i started to wonder who would benefit most from these two players. After the jump i will make my case for Brian Hartline.
Kyle Orton at QB will make Brian Hartline much better at WR. Kyle has thrown to B. Marshall before and we saw how well that worked out. Orton does everything that henne dosent do, and he does it well. things like play action fakes, quick progessioins between recivers, he actually looks off CB's instead of locking onto the 1st option.
I say that, to say this....Brian Hartline is this years breakout player. how many times last year did we see Hartline have his man beat by 3-5 yards only to have to come back to an underthrown ball? or when Hartline would cross the deep middle how many of those passes where late or badly thrown and eventually intercepted by the safety? Kyle Orton throws the deep crossing routes extremely well and can chunk the ball deep down the side line. Hartline doesnt have break away speed, but he is tall, shifty, and knows how to get open in space. Kyle Orton will find Hartline open alot this year. i predict that Hartline outshines D. Bess this year and has 70 Catches for 850 yards and 7 TD's. K. Orton could very likely throw 3700-4000 yards. All of our recivers will benefit but i think Hartline improves the most with Orton at QB rather than Henne.
If your not excited about dolpihns football this year........check your pulse
