The Positive Side of 2013: UPDATE: Does Wheeler suck?




As I look at this video I see throws that not many QBs in the NFL can make. Throws on the run, throws between defenders and throws placed where they can be caught only by the WR. I see some special throws, like the one where he escaped pressure and threw downfield Gibson, when I didn't even see an open WR for him to throw to(and I was there for that game).

I see our defense sacking some QBs with @absolutely no pocket presence@ (just pretend you see the sarcasm font). I see a CB that we locked up with a long term deal making plays on the ball, and making tackles that he has no business making.

People want to talk about how bad a guy like Philip Wheeler was and how he missed 18 tackles which they then use as proof that he can't tackle. Do you know who led the Dolphins in tackles last season with 118 And was 2nd only to Reshad Jones in solo tackles with 83? In terms of the entire NFL he was 22nd and 23rd in the league for all players. Now LBs make up a good bit of the top of that list, but of 32 teams most have 3 or 4 LBs that start. Do you know why only OFF keeps track of "missed tackles"?

What do you see? If you want to look at a highlight video and see nothing positive... well I guess that is your perogative... I choose to look at the positive things and realize that we have one of the youngest teams in the NFL and our arrow is pointing up.

Seriously, what else would you expect from the guy that has a unicorn pooping a rainbow as his avatar?

RECs are appreciated!!
