    I would expect nothing less. The other posters seemed to give you some crap but I'll give you a pass based on your generally strong contribution to the forum. Not trying to catch up with WV so you can do a 20,000th post rant are you? :)

    Burnett hasn't received much attention. He must be an upgrade to Crowder who was hurt all the time it seemed. He looks the part. We'll see how he plays. I think signing him and releasing Crowder was probably the best free agency move. Some people might think signing Reggie Bush was the best thing that happened. But we lost both Ricky and Ronnie and we got Bush and Thomas. Is that an upgrade this season? Maybe. But maybe not. Burnett must be an upgrade to Crowder. If he stays healthy, that's more than Crowder could do after Zach Thomas retired.

    I wanted the Phins to draft him back in 2005 (ironic that he was drafted the SAME year as Channing Crowder).


    When he wasn't getting any PT in Dallas and was "available" I wanted the Phins to get him then before he went to SD.


    Third time is the charm....believe it!!!!

    He was a BEAST at Tennessee I do remember that much at least....FINALLY DOLFANS WE MAY SEE THE DEFENSE RISE TO CONSISTENT DOMINANCE

    i did kind of like him coming out but he didnt play in Dallas because he really didnt perfrom. The coaching staff was quuite dissapointed in his play and practice and now ironically the same guy that drafted him and was probably dissapointed in him now sees a player he wants all over again.

    Yeah, like isn't he just about our premier FA pickup ?? Did anyone really think he'd be the #3 ILB over Edds or Spitler ??

    how come the Dolphins havent pursued Lofa Tatupu? He was a 3 time pro bowler and in his...what...5th year? He's still got some left in him. Kevin Burnett is an upgrade over Crowder, but he's still no beast. I'd rather let him rotate or duke it out with Tatupu for that spot

    I kind of like the Burnett signing but not sure he is as good as people think he is. SD definately did not make him a priority to resgn and chose Spikes as a priority over him. One damn good season is a start but I do think people look at sacks and such and automatically make him out to be some stud.
