    Look Im a huge Marshall fan, I LOVE Vontae.. But Bess is my favorite fin. He may not be our most talented player, nor is he the highest touted, but he is a great professional. First of all this dude works his *** off. I was reading his twitter earlier, and I am NOT a twitter dude, and I came away impressed. He is the nicest dude! He wishes the best for everyone. Bess may not be our best receiver. He is a beast, but you can't beat the real beast. But even so, Davone Bess, you are my favorite player. You have overcome adversity and you have shown what it is to be a true professional! Im cheering for you D!

    He had 800 yards and 5 td's last year. We all know he's solid, look for him to have as many catches as Brandon again. These 2 guys are going to be great to watch. Bess finds holes in zone scheme and Brandon can't be coveted 1 on 1.

    im with you bro, davone won me over last year. Not just showing me his talents but the person that he is as a human being. Vontae is my favorite player on the dolphins but davone is right behind vontae-marshall and the rest of the gang.

    Lol, you think Bess is better than Marshall? Bess isn't even better than Hartline.

    Bay area guy, hard worker, talented, and humble; gotta love him no matter what team he plays for you know? Let's hope he stays a fin for many years to come.

    Wow! Bess has twice as many receptions, 450+ more yards, almost twice as many touchdowns over Hartline in the last 2 seasons. Granted, Bess doesn't have the YPC Hartline does, but his hands alone make him the better receiver when we need a big reception.

    Hartline offers more big play chances, I'll take that over a possession WR any day. Bess' stats were better because our playbook was a joke under Henning. Once we go down field on a more regular basis you'll see Hartline targeted a lot more often. Yes, Bess will still trump him in receptions, but not in big plays... 20+ 40+ yards.

    I don't think so, I think he was used more effectively.

    For people who go purely by stats I can understand why they'd believe that.

    Brian is more talented overall in my opinion. Bess is a great possession WR and a go to guy for short yardage passing situations when you need to pick up a first down. Brian is a bigger threat down field.

    But, they serve completely different roles, so it does not matter.

    Yeah, different roles, but Hartline is still mostly potential, and Bess has been delivering well in his role. HArtline drops and falls a little too much for my taste....but I do think he gets open more than Henne tries to hit him. And you didn't have to throw in the stats deal. lol It's not like that.

    It's easier to catch when you're running 5-10 yard curls like Mr. Bess. =/

    You still need a slot receiver. Not every play in football is going to be a 50 yarder, & Bess lead our team in 3rd down for 1st down conversions last year, and was actually near the top of the league in that category.

    Bess is one of the best slot receivers in the game in my opinion. Brian is not one of the top #2 receivers. & I like Hartline.

    Davone is a great player. He is my favorite also. I think he will have his biggest year this year.

    Ted Ginn offers more big play chances. Do you want to trade Bess for Ginn?

    Bess is a great slot WR, I don't watch every slot WR in the league, but I think we have one of the better ones.

    He could be a little faster, but he is quick and he runs great routes and has solid hands. Couldn't ask for more from a UDFA.

    He isn't better than Brandon Marshall, but he excels at the role he is given, and that is all you can ask. Don't care to see him back on punts this year tho.

    Fasano had more big plays than Hartline last year.

    Hartline is a bum

    Hartline is decent, he can play in this league . . . I just think he would be alot more liked as the #4 guy and special teams player. I think that is his role . . . but he works hard and I don't think he is a liability as the #2 WR, I just think he can be upgraded.

    He is just like Fasano IMO. Fasano is a #2 TE playing as a #1. He can do it, but he can be upgraded.

    God Damn you have a huge Hard on for Hartline if you think its easier to catch 5-10 yard catches down the middle, when Hartline makes a great catch over the middle from an errant throw and Ray Lewis, David Harris, Shawn Merriman, Pat Willis etc are there to knock your head off 70 plus times in a season, then I will be convinced Hartline is better.


    And don't think I just hate Hartline I really like Hartline and I'm hoping he can do great things this year, he's done nothing but improve but to say he's better than Bess, who not only lines up in the slot but also occasionaly as an X reciever and makes great catches, and the quickness he has makes him one of the best slot recievers in the game. Sure Hartline is faster and can catch deep passes...but so could Ginn.
