    I think its MORE about the valuable playing time and learning experiences hes going to miss. He will essentially be coming in as a rookie next year because of the injury. Rather than coming in as a guy with 16 games of experience and hundreds of snaps.

    They wanted a 4th last off season, I seriously doubt they are lowering their price. I would send a 3rd. He could become the best blitzing LB the Dolphins ever had in a base 4-3. This move would really, really tighten the cap room.

    Daryl Washington in unsigned?? Wow! Does he have any more suspensions pending? This cat is seriously good if he is clean and cleared to play. Seriously, very seriously good. This is elite talent. He is waaayyy better than Kiko or Timmons. Loved watching him play for the Cardinals.

    never been a fan of putting a bunch of your starters on special teams, let the backups and specific special team guys do it, stuff like this happens a lot and for no reason, risk injury to your starters for what may be a better special teams, sigh...

    Reminds me of Philbin constantly running daniel thomas up the middle on our 5 yard line to end the half instead of just taking knees when the other team knew he was gonna do it every time, and thomas getting concussion after concussion, Philbin bein like yeah just keep going out there dude, I'm really smart, don't worry if you get stupid, I'm really who matters here.

    That was a side rant on Philbin's idiocy but doing pointless things just to look smarter or busier usually bites back, sucks for raekwon, was really looking forward to watching him playing, thought he was prolly our best pick, him and asiata.

    I thought Chase Allen played well last night. It might be better to save some cap room then go all out today.

    McMillan would have eventually, and sooner than later, become an all down LB. It was just a matter of time.

    Good luck trying to force teams to pass on us now. Losing McMillan was a huge blow. His loss will also reduce Harris' snaps.

    Extremely disappointing. Maybe my favorite new player. Wish him well in his recovery.

    Though McMillan was probably not going to start right away (on less he had a spectacular preseason...which was also pretty possible), there is no doubt he was eventually going to start. It's tough, but it might not be as devastating as one may think.

    1. The hear the D-line did look much better against the run yesterday, if true, that is a great 1st step to help not missing what we would have gotten with McMillen that much more.

    2. If you consider last year Alonzo did pretty well being the only real player on the LB squad making type of big plays (I hear he again made another big play last night, this time a sideline to sideline play), but now with Timmons there, it will give Miami another solid at worse play maker at LB, if we are able to get another LB we can count on, or Allen proves to be a find, we could be better off then we think.

    3. Last year we were missing one of our best defensive player in Jones, with him back, it will only add yet another play make that will help slow down the opponent's running game, in week eight we will get back another Safety that tend to put hurt on players that challenge his side.

    4. Another year with this coaching staff, if they are as competent as hope they are, they probably have a plan to help the defense be better against the run.

    No matter what, we would have been a much better team with McMillan, but even if we will not be that good, we still could be better then last year, and that is another start to being a more consistent defense.

    If perry Riley can man strong I'd go get him and kick Timmons inside.

    But that's a big if. Hewitt at 232 isn't gonna work at the poa at strong. I'd be shocked if he did frankly

    We need a strong side starter worthy veteran backer and kick Timmons inside.

    I'm not playing 16 games with a maxed out mike hull

    We lose Timmons that's when we are up **** creek without a paddle. He can man strong he can man mike. Raekwons loss was bad Timmons puts us in dire circumstances

    He's a better mike than olb anyways. Kick him inside

    Is now a bad time to question passing on Dalvin Tomlinson in the 2nd...?

    Horrible horrible loss :(

    BUT,

    On the bright side, Davon Godchaux has been looking fantastic.

    Man, the more I think about it, the more this just sucks. He seems like a really outstanding young guy, everything you're looking for as a person and a football player, and really poised to help us at a position of need...

    ... and on the first play of the damn preseason, are you kidding me?

    I guess the onus was always on the offense to force other teams to pass
