Coleman and Elam? Wow...they gave up lots!!! Give me a break. All they gave up was a 2nd rounder to move up and possibly draft a francise QB. Sounds like jealousy if you ask me.

Im not "obsessed" with Matthews. He was the best available OLB at that time. GB sure thought so. But Tuna could've picked Barton, or Sintim or whoever. He didnt even pull the trigger with the 2nd pick! Im sick of seeing the Fins trying to finesse everyone and getting their teeth kicked in. White gonna hep with that?

8th in what league the AFC? Not the NFL. Im not buying that. Did you see Flacco pressured AT ALL in the playoff game last year? I dont deny we needed a corner. But you help your corners when you have a strong pass rush. Plus, there were several good corners that were available with 2nd pick. Davis dropped for a reason. He has "issues". Of course we couldnt get the CB w/2nd pick because we were gonna reach for a 5'11" QB to run a gimmicky "spread" formation. App State South, Im telling ya.
man parcells needs to watch his back you are gonna have his job soon. Ireland is gonna be getting you your caramel macchiato while you fill out our roster with olbs and d-ends that we dont need....CAMERON WAKE man we got our guy for that!!! He is good to go. I feel you but come on man we arent in these meetings and have never met these dudes. Mcshay and the crew are usually wrong.

Thanks, you just proved a huge point: Miami did not select an OLB in the first round for a reason - the NEED a CB! Case closed.

I dont think White will be competing for the primary role in the wildcat. I think he may line up in that spot sometimes but primarily he will line up where Pennington typically does. Now that corner really has to respect that wideout. Of course you can still motion white in for the direct snap to sweep or pull up and throw. With Brown, Ricky, Cobbs Camarillo or Ginn and now white in the Wildcat the possibilities are endless.

Sorry that you aren't 'buying' simple facts, but yes, Miami was 8th in the league for most sacks. Just look it up, the stats are available on NFL.com . Which is probably another reason the Trifecta is drafting for Miami, and not you.
Secondly, Davis didn't 'drop' anywhere - several mock drafts had Miami drafting Davis right where they picked him. Scouts Inc projected last December that Davis was likely a mid to late first round pick.
Again, the facts don't seem to be on your side.

I dont give a damn what "McShay" says man. Im tired of the Fins and all the finese stuff. Everytime someone new comes to Miami its the same old stuff. Been like this since before the Marino days. We are running the 3-4. We need outside backers like we need water. And we pass on them for "glory hunting" CB's and offensive "trickery". I hope for the best, but I want an "NFC East" type team from Miami when we travel north to play in the snow. WE kick THEIR teeth in for a change. Its all goo though. Trust the Tuna I guess.

FinsFollwr2 look at it this way. At least for the first time since merc morris and even really not even then we have a well rounded dangerous offense. Marino would be salivating at the opportunity to play with this offense, this o-line, and honestly this young defense we have. It is gonna be a blast to watch this year you will see.

HeyWoodstrock. He WAS projected by most "mock drafts" to go earlier. You can cherry pick any specific one you want. But consensus was he goes earlier. I havent checked the "stats" on the sacks but Im willing to bet they werent 8th in the NFL. AFC, maybe. Not withstanding, you deny the rush was weak towards the end of last year? Looked like Flacco had all day to me. Thats a FACT dude. My only complaint is passing on OLBs when there were so many good ones out there. AND,then doing it again on a reach to run a gimmick formation. Time will tell.

I hope they trade Beck to a team where he has a shot to play sometime. Here he now officially has no shot! Will the Fins be better off taking a higher seeded draft choice in next year's draft that a a lousy one this year? Good luck man! seemed like a good person.

Yea Josh, you r probably right there. There is improvement. Maybe we can get that premier OLB next year. WE gotta get JT back to help Porter though. Keep the faith.
