    What are you even talking about. I would just much rather use this year to find out what we have in some players on the roster. See what we have in Woodward, draft a guy like Burns, and just let our young guys prove themselves. I just think he's an overrated player is all.

    I think you would have trouble knowing where to begin on any number of questions you were challenged with. It has nothing to do with the question. Alas, another post with many words but absolutely no content. What part of "the money has to be spent" don't you understand. Explain to me, in detail, how it's "utterly ridiculous" to pay him 15 million as opposed to 11 million. What will that prevent? How will that set the franchise back? I'm sorry I hurt your feelings with questions that are difficult to answer, but that's part of a discussion.

    The point was I don't see any evidence of him coming to Miami but yes I know what he does on the field. Don't see him getting that kind of production with Miami's current supporting cast (offense that can't stay on the field) but in the long shot he did I'd be elated.

    It is kind of humorous and says a hell of a lot that we all have views of whats right or wrong with players being released or possibly picked up or money spend when truthfully I don't think anyone actually knows enough of much, to make these kinds of predictions with any real credibility, its all just guessing at this point.
    Have no clue to
    1. Plan
    2. Timeline
    3. type of players to build the system on
    4. The System ?
    5. Players they feel they can work with
    6. QB ideas, this draft next draft, next draft FA ?, Falk, or whatever
    7. How they manage the cap ?

    We just don't know and there has not been enough of anything to even speculate their views, tendencies and abilities...
    I mean we no so so so very little of anything besides the names of the New Staff and a idea of Griers past under a completely different environment and level of responsibility.

    Now individual player evaluation is debatable but the fit and importance in the Organizations plan and its cohesion into a working cap is not really even known to US to make that judgement call,,, Yet...

    Have you listened to Chris Grier’s comments that he would rather have 2 good players on his team than 1 great one. You’re the one advocating for the exact opposite of what he has said in the press. Why would any sucessful player who is a free agent want to sign with a team that is going through a rebuilding phase and the rebuild is just beginning?

    Granted he's not the kind of PR talent compared to a younger Wake. But have you watched the guy do everything else? Wake has never been on this guys level when it comes to manning that edge. Teams routinely ran at our DEs and especially Wake. There's a reason for that.

    We can do all that and still sign Flowers to help the process along faster.

    You implied you hard time paying the $$$, I offered financial assistance.

    The,"Wake is a run game sieve," thing, has always been a popular thing to say around here, but it isn't reality.

    Wake's decent run defense grades have always been over shadowed by his elite pass rushing ability, but his run defense grades have never been bad, neither have his coverage grades.

    It just isn't true; on the other hand, it is true that Trey Flowers run defense grades are elite.

    I think our scheme is more LB's getting the tackles getting Flowers may shut down an edge but teams would then go up the middle. Would be like getting a 2016 Branch which also happened to be when we went to the playoffs a fluke because we put up less than 24 ppg that year. Last year started out great and I agree with Gase saying injuries were obviously the reason we didn't make the playoffs. The speed our offense was starting to produce then we speculate if William Hayes and Josh Sitton injuries would have an impact, lol then everyone else goes down.

    I agree with the first part of what you said.

    As it pertains to Flowers, why would you not?

    I mean just for starters......Fishing.
    It’s Miami. (Or Broward)
    It’s Money.
    Taxes. (less of them)
    It’s scheme familiarity.
    Doesn’t have to face Tunsil x 2.
    It’s not Belichek.
    It’s Flores.
    It’s not the end of a dynasty.
    It’s the beginning of a dynasty.
    It’s not New England.
    Xavien, Minkah and some OSU LBs.
    Stone crabs > Maine Lobster.
    Exiting your house November to mid April.
    Because we are not the Jets.
    Because we can beat New England.
    Because we are not Buffalo.

    And oh ya, it’s Miami. (Or Broward)


    Did I do good? I feel like I did good.

    Will wait patiently for fishfanmiami to like my post. Fishing is a priority people. For those of you who don't, thank you, from those of us who do.

    Good. Let him go do it in Detroit. We don't need him in Miami for all that money.
