you are certainly welcome to voice your opinions as loudly & inaccurately or legitimately as you want to pursue your end
I'm not a pundit, however, I've participated in sports as a coach, player & fan over the course of a life-time & have seen a lot go down
I honestly see the situation in it's simplicity as I have posted it in this thread:
2012 should be a very simple draft for Miami
basically, I think the team is set,
we have the talent to coach our offense into a formidable unit
1) Clay will play TE in this West Coast offense opposite Fasano
2) Gates, Hartline, Wallace & Bess @ WR provide size, speed & go-to potential
3) Long, Incognito, Pouncey, Jerry, Murtha (Garner/Carey) provide the makings of an excellent OL
4) Bush & Thomas @ RB are more than adequate
5) Moore & Gerrard @ QB allow us to begin the season competently.
the only draft pick we have to nail down is Ryan Tannehill & I believe he will be there @ eight, if not we move up & get him
after that concern is addressed, it's a matter of best @ pick for the best of the draft as it falls to you
over-all the team looks very in every department: offense, defense & special teams
Furthermore, I think Miami will finally turn the corner this season in the NFL. We will reclaim our identity & find our way to competitive & winning football by the end of this year
Tannehill @ 8
- Competition is the Elixir of Success -
I don't know what makes you think were going to reach for Tannehill at 8 when it goes against every Ireland does in round 1.
Maybe it's just me and with all due respect, but this thread is taking something simple and making it difficult while talking about something difficult and attempting to make it simple.
How can you truly believe that? Our line was AWFUL last season. Your just listing 3 of the starters and 2 back ups who couldn't beat the other 2 starters out. hmmmm....yea great makings.3) Long, Incognito, Pouncey, Jerry, Murtha (Garner/Carey) provide the makings of an excellent OL
I thought he wrote "excellent LOLine". At least Moore will get a chance to see the rush coming head on from the right.
Big Jake was nicked up, Pouncey was a rookie playing Center, our two best OL were not exactly ready for primetime.
I do believe subtracting Colombo will be a net plus and that will go a long way to settling the OL
My real question is playmakers, at Wr, we really don't have any we have more of a consistent Wr corps.
I do think Hartline as the quasi 1 Wr is a risky proposition as he can go stretches were he is either injured or invisible. If we lose him we are down to DBess and real unknowns at Wr.
We were pretty good fir the second half of the season and we upgraded our coaches and we have a weak schedule.
I hated the bm trade and at first thought it created a huge hole but the fact is we dont need a #1 wr with our new offense. Greenbay is full of #2 wrs. Its gonna be a team effort this year with our wide receivers. Plus our te's, rb and maybe even our new fullback we be catching more balls this year. The way I see it is our needs are: a franchise QB, a couple of olineman, and another pass rusher.
We don't have a single star on the team, its not even close to set. That is a complete joke and misunderstanding of the roster to even think we are close to set. We are team that needs play makers on offense and defense to even compete for a playoff spot. Right now we are a team with 6-10 talent at best, if we draft well and the new coaching staff implements quality systems I think we can squeak out maybe 8-10 wins if we play good sound football and don't turn the ball over, but we need playmakers and a few stars or we will never contend in the AFC East let alone for the title. Oh yeah and we have the gaping hole at the Qb position......this team needs a lot of work.
