Why the hell wouldn't we keep Pope? He's young and would fill in with Zach's departure. I don't get it. Arent' we in the midst of a youth movement? Don't we need talent? To answer the latter, didn't Pope have a career year in '07? I don't get it.

Really dumb decision not to keep Pope.

I always thought he would be Thomas' backup one day and now he is let go.

More than a fan, We are clients. As a client, I am choosing to watch and and spend on a more entertaining football team.

So long Dolphins.

Good posts guys!!!

I know Bill Parcells hasn't watched ANY tape of his new team with his new coaches!!!
He hasn't looked at how much money we would have to pay players....I've heard he knows NOTHING about the salary cap.

He probably doesn't even know what a LINE-BACKER is!!!!

WAKE UP EINSTEINS!!!!

He's happy this year with 20-25 absolute animals in special teams, who are servicable at their positions, heck probably ALL better than what we have there now, save 3-4 spots!!!

Be patient...the cap money will be spent on LOTS of high draft picks (after we trade JT and trade out of the #1 to #3-4), plus a couple of high quality CB/S and LB FA's.

But it's comforting to know now that we have a few GREAT coaching replacements on this thread just in case Bill doesn't measure up these next 3 years!!! LMAO

Pope was a good backup Middle-Linebacker. Better against the run than the pass. With his departure, there is no doubt in my mind that Joey Porter is moving inside.

Pope was a high quality backup. I'm kind of disappointed to see him go. He may turn into a starter on the vikings.

Its a good move IMO. Pope didnt anticipate and hit the gaps at all. He was usually tackling while being knocked on his arse 5 yards past scrimmage.
