    I assume most will respond with sarcastic comments like "who?" and "why is he a priority?", etc.

    However, while Trusnik is not a big contributor on defense, he is a big part of the success the special teams is having. A 2 year, $2 million extension is nothing.

    Thx for the post. Agreed, efficient signing that doesn't hurt us. Loved his fumble recovery during the onside at the jests!

    A lot of fans get so caught up in the big free agent signings, and if it is anything less who needs him. We need players like Jason on special teams and as a back up on D.

    When did you call it like it is? You just came in and made a sarcastic comment just to create attention to yourself. The fact is Trusnik is an asset on special teams and we're getting good value for him. I don't know what's not to like about that.

    I'm a blind homer because I think your comment was immature? And to clarify, your comment was that Trusnik is the answer to all of Miami's problems. That was you calling it like it is? So should we not take your comment as childish sarcasm and take it exactly how it reads because you "call it like it is"?

    I hate this crap.

    What this really means is that because of the stupid drafting of Josh Kaddu and the extension now given to Trusnik, we won't be drafting a LB prospect in the 3rd round who could actually become a good starter down the road.

    Ireland is a complete and utter football idiot. FIRE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!! Somebody please.

    Dansby and Burnett are grossly overpaid.

    The Dolphins need young LB prospects who will start in 2 or 3 years.

    Josh Kaddu doesn't even have control over his body. He is a missed tackle waiting to happen.

    Trusnik will never be starting material.

    Spitler has improved but he just isn't very talented.

    Ireland is the worst GM in the NFL.

    I like Trusnik, but I think there are more important players we need to concentrate on i.e. Starks, Hartline.:rolleyes2:

    Well, this is my 2 cents. While I get that he's a good ST's player, I'd rather build the ST's mostly with players that are playing for the minimun and here's why. We need some stars in our team. There're going to be a few that will hit the market and in order to get 1 or 2 of them we're going to need the money. You can say that he's not making a lot of money but when you start giving your back ups and ST's players 800k a year then you're spending a lot of money on back ups. The way the NFL works is you need stars/playmakers and they're going to get most of the money. You need to fill up the roster(bottom 20)with minimun salaries so you can have enough to pay the playmakers.That's the only problem I have with this. When you look at our roster, we're up there with not much room under the cap(I mean this year) and yet we have no playmakers.Of course we also have lots of dead money due to us giving money to players like this one that are no longer with the team. You win with playmakers so you get those taken care of first. If they're going to start doing this what will happen is you're going to have a team with a bunch of back ups(which is the case now)and then they'll say we couldn't get any top free agents cause we can't afford them and then we're back to the situation we're in now.

    Ozzy rules!!

    Interesting that Ireland elected to prioritize wrapping up Trusnik ahead of the other pending free agents.

    Why be so dramatic? The re-signing of Trusnik isn't supposed to include fireworks and free champagne. It's a solid move and nothing more.

    I'd think it'd be easier to sign the lower-end guys first. I could be wrong...

    This is a nonsense post all over the place. To say Ireland is the worst GM in the whole of the NFL just isn't true.

    Most Phans don't care about special teams, unless they frack up with a missed kick or giving up a big return. Trusnic is no star, and will never start on D. However, he is a 6 year vet who is a VG ST's player. He has 6 tackles (2nd to Freeney) this year on ST's, and provides some leadership with the forgotten part of our team. Good sign.
