    i honestly think we are 2-3 good players away from a SuperBowl team. We obviously could use another receiver and a secondary guy, and then someone for the O-line everywhere else seems pretty set.

    WR, CB AND TE. Possibly a safety also and I think we're not far away!

    2-3 players away from maybe getting to the playoffs but not super bowl. You need a lot more depth then we have to make a deep playoff run.

    Depth is a lot easier to come by though i mean our D-line has depth on depth and same with RB with one good WR we have depth there as well so we could pick up depth at LB DB and O-line in the draft 2 to 3 years man I'm telling, i have watched every snap for like the past 5 years and no other coach had the team playing like this.

    We are a bit further away than that. We need secondary help big time. Someone opposite Smith, a safety opposite Jones, a replacement for Jerry, one or two good WRs, a kicker, a pass rusher, etc. Its more than you think. Plus remember how many free agents we have coming up at the end of this season. There is a chance we can lose Bush, Hartline, Smith, Jake Long and Starks. If we lose any of those guys at all its another hole to fill. IMO you have to start in house and get your own guys signed. Then build through the draft and if you have money left bring in another FA or two.

    Vontae Davis was not the answer, his play in Indy was described as "poop" by this article:

    http://www.stampedeblue.com/2012/9/...-davis-is-kind-of-playing-like-poop-right-now

    So you Dolphin fans who seem to think we traded away Darrell Revis need to wake up.

    I will say, in hindsight, if they were not going to bring in a big time receiver to replace him...they might as well have held onto Marshall for another year and then traded him.

    First need to tie up our free agents

    Dominant WR an obvious need, CB an obvious need, although have to say Carroll impressed and we don't miss Vontae that much.
    Clay's drop, then bonehead run out of bounds when trying to run the clock, clearly illustrates the need for a high power TE. (Fasano and T-hill don't seem to click, Egnew has bust written all over him)
    Then just need depth at secondary, O-line and LB

    I'm still a believer of drafting based on talent not on need... Especially if we have a high pick too many good players to pass up...

    Eliminated playoff teams are usually 2 or 3 guys away from the super bowl. Gotta challenge for the division and make the postseason before we start talking 'close' to champiomships.

    Davis was better than anything we brougt in or will draft. How many rookie corners are respected in this league. Look how long it took for Sean Smith to turn into anything. We can jump on Richard Marshal back and make him a shuhtdown nickle back. Wait he has a bad back.

    We seem to all be in agreement that we need another WR with length and speed (ala AJ Green type ability not necessarily pedigree) who knows how to use his size and work the side lines. CB (who can play bump and run and has alot of punt return experience - we need our own P.Peterson again not saying pedigree more or so ability). We need 2 OG that are mallers, not necessary to replace Jerry and Ingog, but to develop and take over when their contract is up (no need to rush them, but also no need to trade up for them either ... Jerry and Murphy). Lastly, we need a DE/LB hybrid that can take over for Burnett, but also has alot of lateral play with the speed. (no AJ Edds ghosts please).

    So in the end... (All based on Draft Picks ... Free Agency not considered)

    WR/CB/(LB/DE)/TE/OG - we have five picks, use them.

    Pass rushers, corner, safety and depth at LB.....On ofence we need another WR and a TE unless Egnew can develop and maybe a guard......that's if we keep all our guys.

    Ozzy rules!!

    Davis sucks and is not better than anything we will draft.Marshall was a cancer and would have ruined Tanny.I for one am happy with the amount of draft picks we have for upcoming draft.This year is all about gaining experience,players like Miller,Vernon,Randall,Martin,very soonMatthews.Miami has competed in all 5 games and with a few breaks could be leading division! We are gaining valuable exp.on the run.I am excited for every Sunday for the first time in a long time!

    You guys act like you need a flawless roster to win a championship lol

    All we need is Tannehill to continue at this pace...you can hide a below average secondary with a great front 7. As long as you have a couple playmakers back there (Smith, Jones). You don't need superstar receivers, you just need a great QB to get them the ball (See: Tom Brady, pre Welker/Moss).

    So, let's stop acting like we're 2-3 players away. We can win it all this or next season. The key is winning in the regular season, and getting hot when it counts. Also, since we have such a strong front 7/ o line, they are far less injury prone, and give us the opportunity to be a Niners East if you will

    Competed in all five games. Who showed up against Houston? Who showed up against the Jets? As ****ty as the Jets played it should have been a blow out.

    Dont think draft picks are a lock. Egnew, Mattews, Cunnungham, and, Kaddu have not seen the field this year. Thats four draft BUST up to this point. Two of them didnt make the team. I think he JI might be holding on to Egnew and Matthews to save his ***.

    Really if we had one player step up against the Jets we would have won that game.

    Tell that to Pat White who was taken with the 2nd round pick we got in the Jason Taylor trade.

    I'd agree. I think we need an elite pass rusher, a few more good targets for Tannehill in the passing game and help in the secondary. I've said it before that I really think this team is gearing toward being very competitive by 2014. With the right players, I could definitely see the team contending next year and maybe making the playoffs. I am very encouraged by this coaching staff, how well Tannehill is playing so early, the offensive line and the defensive line. We have some nice strenghts to build on.

    Dude, did you completely ignore they think he sucks in Indy?

    Talented kid that lacks the heart....plain and simple...he only gets you beat.

    Sean Smith is becoming a stud, better than Vontae ever was, Carroll is developing and you can expect a few corners to be coming to town from the next draft and/or free agency.

    We will find a starting corner with the heart of a champion, not a loser.

    How many draft picks from rd5-7 make teams? We cant hit every one,and yes we did compete with the Texans.We made a few rookie mistakes that cost us the game but until then Houston had all they could handle.I bet to a man if tou asked them if they want to see us later in the year again it would be overwhelming NO.We are going forward for the first time in years and some of you people are still bitching.Go root for the Jests or Bills there team dont have problems!

    We need to get 2 Wr's. 1 through FA and a stud in the draft
    1 starting corner and 1 more for depth
    Upgrade at safety to replace Clemons

    And obviously replacements for anyone we lose in FA.

    We make 2 kicks we're 4-1, as is I like our chances of being 3-3 going into the bye. Considering how we felt after the first 5 games of August & week 1 vs Houston, we're in 7th heaven right now. If Gaffney could be as good as he was for Denver, I think we have enough there. The idea of a perfect team is just delusional. You need a few great ones some good ones and some average ones that can all play well as a team, unit for unit. You think of how many 10-6 or 9-7 teams have won Superbowls and you realize that it transcends the talent of individual players.
    Without a back-up WR David Tyree making a circus catch that he couldn't replicate in a 100 tries, NE has an undefeated season. A week after that though the Giants GM was thinking, 'In order to repeat, we need X more good players..."
    I'd like us to have a better FS, more depth at RG and RT and a catch-all O-line guy, I REALLY wish we had one more good pass-rusher but maybe Vernon can grow into that more than he has so far. I like that guy Shelby we drafted and am curious to see where he's going.
    By the time we sign the core of our team for next season, we'll have enough left over for 1 superstar FA or 2 decent ones and money to sign some draft picks. But that alone could be good enough. I think this season so far has proven that we have a great core group of guys. No one shoves us around on either side of the ball and most teams in the NFL can't say that. With both Dansby and Burnett healthy, we're looking great there, IMO.
    But what's between the ears and in the heart will go just as far this season as another guy or two with greater tangibles. This Dolphins team is a tough out and for the Bengals we were too tough. We will pound teams that aren't ready to play hard (like the Raiders) and it will require a team's best to beat us. Our team seems to have character and that will go a long way. Losing because our kicker has been a little off is frustrating, but it's time to take the training wheels off and start creating margins of victory beyond the reach of one missed FG.
    I'd like an upgrade at FS, WR and DE, but just 1 or 2 of these could be enough.
    Matching up with the 'Niners seems far-fetched. They're killing people because they're just too strong and athletic on defense. I'd love to see us follow their example and keep getting stronger and faster on 'D. Our offense right now is as good as theirs, IMO.

    Reciever, Corner, Safety, Pass Rusher and then some added depth on top of that. Were far more than 2-3 players away.
