Wow!

If Hagan is giving motivational catching-the-ball speeches, that says very little about the quality of our receivers.

I know he has been doing better, and I hope he keeps it up, but the only thing that makes him an authority on dropping balls are the balls he dropped.

i have little confidence in our passing game.

you cannot make chicken salad out of chicken shit.

our running game will be solid, but we will not be able to throw at all. it will be pathetic.

we need another offseason to shore up the passing game.. either the young QB's gotta step it up or we gotta find a QB who can get the job done.

the WR's are awful and I don't see how we will move the ball through the air.

A four year old can catch a football.

It's all about learning the placement of your hands and focusing on the thing.

Sometimes an a$$ chewing makes all the difference in the world.

O. J. McDuffie had that problem, until one game where Marino fired a pass to him in the back of the end zone, wide open, and he dropped it. On the sideline afterwards Marino bumped his helmet against his pointing a finger in his chest. And it was obvious that he wasn't simply saying "please don't drop the ball anymore".

That's when O.J. became a good receiver. Not blazingly fast, but low and behold he rarely ever dropped anything after that moment.

I'd love to see Marino out there in some shorts with the QBs and receivers showing them how it's done. Why isn't this man coaching?

Maybe the coach should rip Parcells for not signing him any talent.
But seriously, the Dolphins sound more like a high school team than a Pro team.

Hey coach, if your not happy with your WR's maybe you should cut them and trade or pickup some decent ones. I hear this is a pretty popular idea with most NFL coaches
