let me first say that i am always an optimist when it comes to the dolphins. that said, i don't want to go into the season with blinders on. i've been reading some threads about what the FO has been doing (and not doing). the glaring problem to me is that we haven't been able to make significant upgrades to the offense through the draft. it just seems like the FO has been missing in evaluating our offensive picks. i think it's too early to tell with some of the offensive linemen as they do need time to develope. but i will say that i'm disappointed vernon carey isn't starting, and that's thanks to the FO for giving up a 4th just to move up 1 spot. it seems as though we're constantly looking to upgrade through FA or a trade (which can be great), but you're not in the drivers seat in those situations and that can prove costly. i'm not saying we haven't found some gems, and those guys are obvious. it's not just this regime either, it dates as far back as JJ and we're paying for it to this day. anyway, i'm still hoping our offense can get something going this year and prove all the "experts" wrong. go PHINS!!!
