I hope this fanbase keep the faith. Also, I will remember threads like this because you know it won't last.

Hell, I should start a thread now guessing how long with will be before the "Fire Flores" threads begins?

1-4 games into the season would be my guess.

Not sure how anyone could be. If their goal is to tank that means losing a lot. If Flores goes 8-24 in his first two years people would want him axed immediately.
I don't believe thats their goal.

im optimistic about the guy..

Everywhere!
Not to make it sound to simple, but It really comes down to nailing the next QB. Sort that out and the rest will generally take care of itself.
I somewhat agree - QB is most important, but if history teaches us anything we had the greatest QB we will ever see and how many championships did he alone win!? But I understand your point!

Are you optimistic about Flores?
His fate is going to be determined by the quarterback Chris Grier gives him.

I’m not a believer in Grier, but all it takes is placing the proper amount of importance on the position and hitting big one time.

That’s all it takes.

Truth is, if they’re not able to land a franchise quarterback in the next 3 years with the caliber of QB’s that are going to be entering the league - then Miami might as well finally go join the AAF.

I feel pretty good about their chances of being successful in this challenge. Simply because of the quantity and quality of the QB’s coming down the pike and Miami won’t have a good enough football team to avoid having their shot.

I wish I was.

O line and D line have me GRAVELY concerned. Everybody is hollering QB, but I am much more concerned with the lines.

Especially since they take 9 guys, and we have 3. Tunsil, Taylor, and Godchaux.

And we ain’t fixing them with the draft. Not all of it, half if we do well.

But we picked up two TEs. And a corner (granted, we need a corner). Hmmm.....

The problem with the “Patriot Way” is that it applies to the Patriots.

Which we’re not.
I am concerned about the line as well. Hopefully, there is a plan. I hope. Hopefully.

Let me see if I'm reading this correctly.

You are saying it's more likely to find quality starters by drafting a position of need, rather than drafting the best player?

Seems counterintuitive to me.
seems like he knows everything.

What are they going to do at all? Signing losers, letting players go, not signing a single name? I would’ve been slightly intrigued by Bridgewater next year but since he’d rather not play for 7.25 mil what’s next? I want Rosen. Trade for him now.
Oddly enough, I find I am in agreement with you.

Something happened early last year that seems to have turned Gase off on Tannehill. I don't know what it was, but I suspect it was significant. If that was the case, lets bring in Rosen and see if he is better than whoever we have left in the QB position this spring.

So far free agency has gone how I figured. Will be interesting to see who else gets released or traded. I think the team will attract a lot more key UDFA’s from the draft this year.

Feel the same about Grier, simply cannot trust.

I like the makeup of Flores, the discipline, hopefully the scouting background..

Don’t wanna get into why I don’t trust Grier I’ve talked about it a lot so don’t wanna bring down the thread..

Keep hope alive :)

I agree with this. You could always tell Gase had a different, bigger QB ask game plan when Ryan was under center compared to Moore, Cutler and Brock. When Tanny returned in week 12 he actually got the same treatment and may have been getting it even earlier. I found that odd.

If Gase isn't sold on Darnold having Bell on your fantasy team is going to be gold. I hope he enjoys that contract, Gase is going to run him to the ground.
