    I'm glad we are winning but I thought we finally had a stud #1 wideout in hartline? Maybe he is saving up his energy for the 4th quarter? Just confused. I was told after his 12 catch game that he is a stud and we finally have a permanent number 1? Are the bengals and rams secondary just that good? I guess I'm a troll especially because my screen name relates to previous dolphins players.

    No, we all know he is destined to be a good #2. We still need a beast as our 1. No one is expecting him to do much of anything against Finnegan, the whole Rams pass D is pretty good honestly

    Could have fooled me then. In typical finheaven fashion, people were coming out in drones proclaiming the guy as the next number one for Miami while the rest of us were chastised for wanting to see consistency. As usual, he has disappeared like he has his entire career this far. Is he having the best year to date? Sure but he is far cry from a legit nfl #1. Better not say much though as I will be called a troll and my screen name questioned even by mods that have been a member of this site for less time then myself.

    I don't buy the crap about the secondary either. Legit #1 wideouts perform week in and out regardless of who they face or whatever bs excuse is thrown out there.

    See what happens when defenses roll a safety towards him ? And give him attention ?? He's invisible

    Great #1 WR's still make plays and have an impact despite this. But Hartline can't because he's not very good. Hartline has been getting away with defenses not respecting him and sticking #2 and #3 DB's on him. While Hartline had a big day in Arizona, notice that he was totally shutdown whenever he was up against #1 CB Patrick Peterson . Hartline was totally blanketed without an inch to move whenever given attention by defensive coordinators.

    Miami desperately needs some playmakers and speed at the WR position. One thing about Jeff Ireland that he was bang-on about was during hard knocks when he said Miami had a bunch if #3, #4 an #5 WR's, but no #1's and no #2's

    Maybe you shouldn't crown Hartline after one good game. As the Hartline "haters" would say, consistency is the key.

    I didn't crown him anything. I called for him to be consistent but had to wade through the crap which included mods calling me a troll and even going as far as calling out my screen name. Just wondering where all these armchair wideout coached and talent scouts fled to? The guy has don't squat the past 2 weeks other than a pass interference call in both games. Just really was looking forwarded to having a stud number 1 on the team. Shame on me for actually realizing he is and will always be a second or third wideout.

    I did saw him open a couple of times. I think they semi used him as a decoy while also picking on certain Ram defenders. Hartline was up against the clear best DB they had. The holes and mismatches were at different areas.

    Who cares? No one thought he was the next Jerry Rice. Quit patting yourself on the back for being able to see the obvious.

    You shouldn't crown a player after one game, nor should you start a smart arsed thread sniping at him after one game either.

    Guys, get real. Hartline isn't even a #2 on a good WR squad. He's a 3 or 4 b.c. of his slow feet. A possession WR -- classic.

    I don't anyone said Hartline was a #1, all the Hartline supporters have always just maintained against all the haters that he's a legit WR. I think he's very good, as a #2
    i never saw anyone here say he's a #1, so relax haters you're still all wrong

    How about the fact our QB had his first multiple td passing game or our rookie had 2.0 sacks...no..lets be negative even after a win. I guarantee you hartline would rather abw than padding stats like you all want every week..

    He is a #2 Wr.. get it through your heads ffs the offensive they play helps hartline to succeed but he is not a guy that can get you big plays every game but who cares we are winning now just wait to the offseason to help our problem.

    Please, there were several threads about eating crow and Hartline being a legit #1 WR because his numbers after the Arizona game. Now that the non Hartline believers are wondering where's he at, the Hartline lovers are upset because they think his haters are doing the "I told you so stunt". Ironic I know.

    When you're leading the league in yards and get zero receptions for zero yards
    you as a player should be embarrassed

    Won't find me in the threads proclaiming Hartline a true #1, because I don't think he is. But GreyBoy, likes to leave out little tidbits that hurt his case.

    It seems you've been to another forum than I have. No one was saying he's definitely our number 1. No one was saying we don't need to upgrade the position when we can. Everyone was saying that Hartline is much more capable than anticipated. So much better that he might be very solid going forward as our legit number 2. For now, he must fill the role as our number 1 because we haven't got one.

    As for today, I suspect the Rams were doing everything in their power defensively to stop him and our running game. They were successful for the most part. Yet doing that opened up other areas of our game, such as screens and Marlon Moore . . . I'll have to watch the game again to see exactly what we did to adjust to the Rams defensive attack to allow us to move the ball anyway.

    I guess you conveniently just either ignored those threads or they were in a language you didn't understand. Love all the hate afterwards too from the hartline lovers. Eat ****ing crow especially Jcane for calling me a troll, of which I've been a member longer than he has and never trolled once. Just the irony is ridiculous. However it's if heaven so should I have expected any different.

    Also I love the double standards of this place. Regardless of winning or losing you can NEVER say anything bad about a player after a win but you must trash them when they lose. The amount of fence straddlers on this site is unreal. You can even clarify your stance a million times as constructively as possible and you still may be called a troll. It's unreal.

    As a team as long as we win I can care less. One player will not stop the show, keep winning. Thats all for the fantacy leagues, any way.

    So when our QB goes away from the coverage and finds other targets, or picks up on a miscue by the D and throws a TD to one of our other "garbage" WR's it's a BAD thing?? I guess you would have been happier if Tanny would have tried to force the ball, and thrown a couple picks so you could say how much you thought he should just ride the pines his rookie season....damn.... guess we have to win every game 47-0 for this to be a successful season!!

    I'm not going to go back and repost everything you can easily find with a search. I believe there was one thread alone that was captioned similar to "we finally have out number one wideout". Most of the real **** talking occurred in threads about hartline with the majority of "trolls" calling for consistency. Then screen names were put into question along with trolling. It was a sad state of affairs especially be a quote "supermod".

    It's more about knee jerk reactions around here. Hell number 2's don't get shut out most of the time. Now the excuses will flow. Bess was the main target, coverage was rolled because he is so dominant, he went against a great corner. When does it stop? Don't get me wrong, I hope he turns into the next Alvin Harper to whomever is our Michael Irvin BUT he will never be a top flight wideout that many for whatever reason started to proclaim after the Arizona game.

    What, you don't know about the search button or how to use it? These threads and posts existed. Everyone knows it too. I'm just calling for a bit of equality across the board. Not being called a troll or something as stupid as a screen name questioned when I make an opinion.

    In case you didn't realize, we won. Bring your negativity somewhere else. There's plenty of loser forums out there you'll fit in perfectly with. BTW, how many touchdowns has Megatron scored this year so far?

    Answer: yes even studs have off days in the NFL

    What does us winning have to do with Brian hartlines production? Are you aware that us winning today has zero to do with the topic of this thread? It further illustrates my point of the bs that goes around here. You can still point out flaws in a victory. I guess that's negative and troll behavior. My bad. Is my screen name offending you too?

    psst..megatron may have had an off day but Brian hartline has yet to have anything that resembles a career sans 1 game...

    You're not allowed to bad mouth or be critical of anything Miami especially after a win. Even after a loss the homers will get after you if you point out negatives and tell you to be "a __________ fan" and that they don't need fans like you. But you know this.

    It was pretty obvious Hartline isn't a number 1 WR. Some people let a fluke game get to their heads. Obviously a #1 WR is still perhaps our biggest priority in the offseason.

    Yep, and they conveniently ignore the fact that the O-line was dominated and Tannehill had very little time to sit in the pocket

    I don't remember people coming out in droves. I do however remember a few, specifically one poster that I won't name that was talking a lot of smack (he's also a huge Ireland supporter so I can see the agenda there). But maybe I missed the thread where there were droves of people proclaiming him because I didn't see it.
