    Wake will be a unanimous choice, as would probably Carpenter. Who else? Fields? Dansby?

    Marshall, Long, Davis, Bess, Dansby, Carroll, Jones, Langford, Soliai, Starks, Wake, Misi, McDaniel, Carpenter, Fields, Smith. I dare someone to give me a good enough reason not to keep one of these players.

    forgive me for answering backwards...
    we need:
    a pro-bowl quality center & pulling guard
    a franchise-quality qb
    & a young RB with speed

    Pennington gets the nod by default

    Marshall, long, brown, bess, and polite for offense. Wake, Dansby, Davis, smith, starks, and most important for our defense mike Nolan.

    Defense + Cheating.

    Great Defense with HOF Strahan.

    That's because it is intangible. Heart or dedication as others would call it is there. A player either has got it or he doesn't. 4 shoulder surgeries and countless rehab hours behind the scenes speaks for itself.

    Other such players who have/had it:

    Dan Marino
    Jerry Rice
    Zack Thomas
    Jim Kelley
    Warren Moon
    Wes Welker
    Davon Bess
    Michael Vick

    I would keep everyone on the Defense because the offense needs upgrades so bad the defense can wait a year. Maybe another LB but thats it with Crowder being the guy I'd let go.

    Offense Ronnie and Henne need to go As well as two or three of the lineman. AND DAN HENNING.

    Holy ****, I had Misi and then somehow erased him! Good catch.

    But no, if I were starting from scratch I would want better, more consistent Corners than Vontae and Smith.

    What has Vontae been besides inconsistent? Spectacularly good one game,conspicuously absent the next.

    And Smith is neither the hitting machine you would expect from a guy his size, nor consistently good in coverage.

    Truly GOOD Corners are two things: consistently good in coverage, and able to create turnovers. These guys are neither.

    You could argue that they will develop, but I don't see it there.

    The fact that Long is so low on your list makes it a joke.

    Can you fix your Signature and Photo please. I'm actually quite tired of seeing the wrong jersey number and photoshop job on a guy who has been with this team 14 games into the season. Besides, 15 isn't even Marshall.

    I'm sure theres a wire photo somewhere you can use, and a mugshot on Dolphins.com.

    Absolute Keepers (not necessarily all sure starters, might want to upgrade, but only players I can definitively say I want on the team next year, no matter what):

    ST's: Fields & Carpenter & Denney.

    D: Cam Wake; Davis; Dansby; Soliai; Odrick; Misi; McDaniel; Langford; Carroll; Edds;

    (Can't say "absolutely" on Smith - he's inconsistent at times; I don't think he has the dedication and serious maturity that Vontae does; and he can't catch; just sayin' not "absolute").

    O: Jake Long; Jerry; Marshall; Bess; Wallace.

    Coaches: Mike Nolan; Darren Rizzi; Bill Sheridan.

    Above all, with respect to keepers: the entire offensive staff must be gone - plus, gut the entire offensive office, replace the drywall ... everything; burn their furniture, carpeting, everything goes to the fire.

    I would keep everyone and then upgrade the positions that make sense through the draft and free agency.

    I like this list with the addition of Smith and Jones. Both have come a long way since training camp.
