I think the Eric Green signing was ultimately a mistake, but it had to be done in case Vontae and Sean Smith weren't available in the draft. I just hope that Green's signing doesn't "railroad" Will Allen in the event that Allen has a stellar year while wanting to remain in Miami.

It's good to know that Vontae is learning from Will and literally following in his footsteps. Thanks for the update, Harvey!

He or SSmith will start on the other side of WAllen. WAllen is a UFA next yr and will be hard to sign him.

Glad to see Vontae Davis humble and willing to learn all he can from a veteran. Hope he keeps that same attitude all season. Put it in the Bank now Vontae for a withdrawal later. Good attitude.

What is he going to learn? How to give up big plays?? Not a good mentor.

There will be no withdrawals made from Bank of Vonte. Only deposits of TDs accepted from other teams WR's.

Comments supporting claims that such advice has been unreservedly forthcoming thus far from a slighted Will Allen, thus far apparently remain reserved.

Maybe not too hard. He will be in his 10th season then.

Our CB's suck and so will our rookies because Pennington will not help them get better during Miami practice sessions. Our WR are not the caliber of talent like other teams have and will not challenge them to develop.
