    I am sorry, but Hartline does not excite me very much, and I am an Ohio State alumni.

    He is unappreciated by the less knowledeable fans on this site. He's a solid pro and any team would be happy to have him. Nobody is saying he's a superstar, but he's a good all around WR that understands the team concept. He gets open a lot, but our QB's have either not looked for him or they have missed him when he's wide open.
    He owned McCourty (Pats) the last game of the yr

    He was under used at Ohio State

    That was with Brandon Marshall attracting all of the attention. Hartline will most likely have a harder time getting open as the team's #1 receiver.

    I think Tannehill will be very good throwing to Bush out in the flat, and to the TE's on the skinny out's.
    Hopefully he can hit moving receivers in stride.
    Early on, I think the defenses will be picking him over the middle.
    The coaches will be calling safe plays for him until the game slows down for him.

    I agree. Hartline is not going to be effective while double covered against the other teams best DB/safety.
    We are going to have to scheme guys open, because they are not elite talent.

    Carts and horses come to mind here.

    Let's get the horse hitched to the cart first, then we can smack it on the *** with the reins and see how fast she runs.

    I dunno about going anywhere near that far, but what I can declare with reasonable certainty is that Hartline, with his Jordie Nelson type sure hands and clean route running likely won't be contributing to a comparable 65 or so certifiable dropsies the Aggies' receivers laid on T-Hill last season. :idk:

    Isn't the cart hitched to the chicken, or is it the horse to the egg? I get easily confused. :idk:

    What's not to like? 1 TD in his last 26 games is what's not to like. I like him as a 3rd or 4th receiver but as a #2 he proved nothing last year when he was constantly in single coverage. It's make or break time for him...he either becomes a lot more productive this year or he probably ends up walking.

    I hope someone from this receiving corp steps up because I think Irelands only mistake in this draft was not getting a better receiver to grow with Tannehill.

    I agree...I thought we should have/would have gotten a WR earlier in the draft. However, they are obviously very high on Egnew as a pass catching threat...and TE is a young QBs best friend. Hopefully Shermans scheme helps get some of these guys open.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Hartline gone after this season. Joe Philbin is smart enough to understand you don't win championships with players like Hartline playing a leading role in your offense.

    I think Hartline is a better player than he's given credit for. He's a pretty good athlete and he has (usually) demonstrated good hands. He will be a better fit for our new offense and could surprise some people.

    Remains to be seen.

    Hartline best catches were all near the sideline on outs. That's the throw Tannehill does the best. Should be fun but I think someone else emerges as the go to guy. Let the games begin.

    Their physical measurements not being all that different beyond 20lb more pounds and +1 inch in height for Jordie Nelson, IMO it's possible, based on the mutually good hands and clean route-running that Philbin sees some of Jordie in Hartline and plans to expand his role.

    Hartline makes big catches but does nothing with the ball after. YAC is crucial in this offense and he doesn't generate it. I don't foresee him being around long if he can't resolve that issue.

    One touchdown in the past 26 games is what not to like

    Likely the team will start in shape and that won't hurt - freaking Sparano (players coach)

    Marshall being doubled covered all the time was a myth that keeps on giving.

    Hartline always finding an opening on the field was also a good myth - if I our WRs and TEs ever learn to come back for the ball we will all breathe easier

    This... and one thing I dont think ANYONE has considered.. Even myself until this point, is how crappy were the routes and plays we previously had.. Hartline runs great routes and has some of the best hands in the NFL and we might see a different Hartline with some new, NFL pro style routes...

    Let's see what all of our skill players do with an offensive system that you and I can't call the plays for along with the rest of the TV audience. I think we have had some of the worst offensive coaching during the Parcells/Sparano reign in the entire history of Dolphins football since I began watching in 1970.

    Why don't we wait and see if Hartline is still on the team by the time Tanny takes the field?

    I just hope that Hartline steps up this season in the WCO, and will be Tannehill's go to when he takes the reigns...

    I must be one of the "less knowledgeable" posters here, as on guy posted on the first page of this thread, becasue I have never understood the love Hartline seems to get for his production which since drafted has been extremely small. It's all the QBs fault for not throwing to him, sounds awfully like the old line we used to get from the Henne fans that used to blame the OC for Henne's failures.
    Last year I thought was his make or break year and he faikled to make it, he's still on the roster somehow, guess he gets another chance to make or break this year.

    Just remember that we had Wes Welker for a reciever for 2 years. He totalled 1 TD in that time. Then he goes to a team with a real QB and turns in 4 straight Pro bowl appearances. Not saying Hartline is Welker but give him a chance with a real QB. He has made some plays for us.

    Hartline is a good player but he is not as good as any of the GB WRs on their roster and Donald Driver who is 37 would be a better option.
    Good player but not up there in the top 32 WRs in this leagues.

    Hartline is way under appreciated.
    The guys catches everything you throw at him.
    Hopefully he will catch the 6 TD's dumbass Marshall dropped last season.

    At Hartlines rate of ((1 td the past 26 games)) it would take him 13 years to score 6 tds

    1st off, the stats you are mentioning are skewed. 1 td in 26 games but 5 in the last 3 years. so whovever posted the original 1 in 26 is skewing the stats to make Hartline look worse than he is. Just leave out the other 4 TD's

    Heck his 5 in 3 years is almost as good as Barndon Marshall's 9 in 2 years and we paid him a lot less.

    Also if you look at Hartlines TD's 2 came in blowout wins against Buffalo. The other 2 were the main contributing factors in Wins against Minnesota and the Patriots. 1 was in a loss to the Patriots.

    Name me a single game where brandon marshall was the main contributing factor in us winning.
