    1. Which 2 players form the following 6 choices would be the easist to replace on our current roster? 2. If for some reason any of these players were not on the roster whom would you replace them with if you were the Dolphin coach?

    The first choice is Brandon Fields. Not too much of a tough one. Punters are not the biggest commodity.

    After that its tough. Running backs are interchangeable, but Brown is special. I guess I will say Bell.

    Those were my choices as well, for the same exact reason. I like Bell a lot, but I had to pick 2 so...

    Fields and Roth...I had to say Roth hasn't shown me enough yet to see the great value.

    Fields and Roth are the easily the most replaceable. Fields is a given, he's a punter. But the reason I say Roth is because we have R. Wright, Fred Evans, and Kevin Vickerson. I think anyone of them could fill in fairly easy.

    I don't see how Roth is easily replacable.

    I think we could easily bring in any number of DE's who could ducplicate and exceed his production: 4.5 sacks in 2 years.

    Having said that, Roth still has potential and it may not be as easy to replace his potential.

    Other than Fields, I think it has to be Roth or Bell on this list.

    Fields and Bell imho. We have zero proven depth behind Roth and Will Allen is probably our best CB. Ronnie also is a pretty rare talent and Carey is our most talented lineman. Bell is alright, but he really is our starter mainly because we just dont have any depth at the position really.

    Roth and fields, roth i think is going to be special, but we're loaded with young talent at that position. fields, well hes a punter, nuff said.

    i don't think Bell would be easy to replace... remmebr all the horrible saftey play we bitched about before he got plugged in?

    Will allen is a solid starting cover, not a shutdown guy , but a good coverguy that can tackle.

    Ronnie brown has been a top15 back in this league since he entered, running behind bad offensive line, theres not many backs that can do what he can with the kind of holes he's had.

    Vernon has proved he is one of the better Tackles i n the league last year, hopefully his transition to LT won't be too ruff. It's hard to find a decent Tackle, let alone one that will anchor your line for a decade(which vernon is doing).

    Fields obviously . . . and probably Roth. I like Matt Roth . . . but we have depth behind him. Someone like Bell . . . we have no depth . . . unless u want Tillman back starting again.

    I agree with Motion. There is no question that Bell and Fields are very easy to replace compared to the others. I disagree with SamTodd about being loaded with quality young defensive ends.

    What depth? The only player right that could possibly back up Matt Roth (adequately) is Rod Wright. We have absolutely no idea what we have in Bruce and that UDFA DT whose name escapes me right now.

    I picked Roth because we are much deeper at DL than we are at DB. Plus, I think its easier to get DL in FA than it is to get DB's in FA and DL's are much cheaper than DB's

    Fields? No way. If we lose our rookie 7th round punter our season is over.

    Other choice would be Will Allen. He's a reasonably solid number 2 corner and our secondary is not exactly lights out so even though i value corners very highly I dont see him as being impossible to replace. Roth's ceiling is quite a bit higher and Bell is a special playmaker.

    Not sure why you picked these 6 of all the players on the team. :confused:

    Obviously, the punter would be the easiest to replace. None of the others would be easy to replace.

    Bell is the best safety we have.

    Brown is a top-notch RB. Whoever voted for him is just a hater. :ninja:

    Roth has shown the least so far but has a lot of potential and it would be foolish to replace him at this point.

    Allen is our best CB right now.

    Carey is our best lineman. Even if he doesn't work out at LT, we would just eventually put him back at RT. We would not replace him though.

    FBs, Ks and TEs would be easier to replace.

    This is another one of those crazy threads.

    A rookie Punter is expendable.
    Every single other player you mentioned are integral parts of this team that the team is counting on to step up for them to be successful.

    So none of the others you listed are easily replaceable.

    I don't like the list. I'll take Fields, but its hard to say that any one of the other guys is "easily replaceable"--maybe adding guys like Eckel and Toledo may help.

    Agreed.

    First question: Is the poll supposed to be for the easiest person to replace, or the hardest?

    Second question: Why is this an issue? Are they thinking of cutting someone, we need the cap room, what? The question just seems so random.

    I think Bell takes the next step this year as a playmaker at safety. Roth is going to be good but how high is his upside? Will allen is very important even though he has lapses at times, without him our corners are in shambles. The punter is a no brainer.

    Thats is why I chose them I am looking for feedback from other Dol Fans what they think the options are behind what I consider possibly iffy positions on the roster this year where the players have a history of injury (Bell & Brown), unproven rookie (Fields) or we have min depth (Carey, Roth & Allen) at that position. The FB, WR, QB, DT and TE are psotions that we have some options. These other are areas of worry.

    I think Fields can be easily replaced. Then Will Allen. He's a solid CB but not the kind of spectacular CB that gets into Pro Bowls or makes offenses be aware of. And there's a reason the CB-starved Giants let him go. Roth can be good but it remains to be seen whether he can disrupt offenses without JT. It just seems whoever we put next to JT gets 8+ sacks a season.

    The punter and Ronnie Brown.

    Any average back could equal his production in Miami from his first 2 years.
