Be happy dolphins. He is a good player. Always manages to be where the play is, I hate we lost him.

Agreed Faith. But does anyone else think the Dolphins frivolously spent a bunch of money this off season to improve a "meh" team to an "eh" team?

miami dolphins is not even my team but i like all the upgrades they did. they went all for broke pickin up all kinds of free agents and draft picks. this is a team that has gone nowhere for a while and they were tired of losing at the same level practically. it's like they were stuck. they couldn't move backward or forward. and i was thinking the same thing that you are thinking c horn, that they probably got all these aquisitions and might not go nowhere. what i like is that they most likely increased their chances. right now i don't recall if they got a new coach or gm or owner but, somebody probably came in and said, we are going to change this team and upgrade and fix every position. so all in all, they hired good decent players. i wasn't to content with their draft but i like the intent and effort they have made overall. i gotta say, i was licking my chops when they were on a roll. but then again, they had money draft picks and could afford free agents (wheeler) and afford to trade up.

Ya, but when was the last time the "most active team in free agency" was really all that good the following season?

It didn't work for the Cowboys or Redskins for years. I'm not saying it isnt possible, i just don't think the talent will gel in a good way. Plus, they have no running backs. Reggie Bush wasn't all too good to begin with but he could get you 80 yards a game when he's healthy.

(lol), i know, that's one of the first things that comes to mind, is the redskins when they had that "dream team". that didn't go well! but who knows? until it happens. but i was disappointed as well when we released our found gem to help the team.

The Dolphins are starting a massive rebuild so this year looks bad.

They've been "rebuilding" for over a decade now, and counting...
