    Tid bit of info from one of my favorite sites. Seems to be a lot of truth about Gase loving CJ. Which he is a good back when his ankles ok.
    According to Denver 7’s Troy Renck, the Dolphins backed out of a Ja’Wuan James for C.J. Anderson deal at the last second.

    Why It Matters: The Dolphins want to get a between the tackles back to take some of the work off of Kenyan Drake’s plate, and Anderson has a fan in the building in head coach Adam Gase. There was some speculation that the Broncos would release Anderson or ask him to take a pay cut, but so far that hasn’t happened yet. If Saquon Barkley falls to the #5, we could see him available to the Dolphins for free after the draft.

    If Gase loves him, then Im skeptical. See Jay Cutler

    I don't think there's a chance in hell Berkeley drops the 5 but you never know about the same thing with gas mask.

    I think the Anderson talk was before they signed Gore. They're not going to stick Anderson or Gore at a 3rd or 4th running back role. At this point I'm sure they'll draft a back, question is will it be in the mid rounds or later?

    What do you mean?

    Did you think Jay Cutler was signed to help Miami get back to the playoffs?

    Seems more likely Cutler was signed to avoid a 2-14 season, no?

    Should we have been subject to watching Matt Moore for 16 weeks? Puke at that thought.

    Believe it or not coaches don't try to lose.

    I thought Gase was trying to pull a rabbit out of his hat and save the season. He was still reeling from the Tannehill injury and all seemed lost. He had no faith in Moore so Cutler was the pick. I was on board with the move but Gase let the Cutler thing go on too long. Once it was apparent that he sucked he should have been yanked but that seems like a long time ago so who cares anymore. This is a deep draft for RB, we'll grab one, but not early on.

    Because watching Jay Cutler was better? At the end of the day there's no difference between 2-14 with Moore and 6-10 with Cutler besides draft order.

    I’d watch Matt Moore way before cutler. Cutlers has a poor attitude, quits on his team mates and can’t take a shot. Dumpster fire.

    God I hate the month heading up to the draft, I will believe no insider info as 95% of it is a snokescreen.

    Signing Cutler at all was an issue.....signing him and blowing TEN MILLION DOLLARS for one season was a colossal issue and terrible mistake by Gase which impacts this season and personnel we had/could have had.

    I would not agree if my last name was Ajayi, Landry, Pouncey, Suh, Timmons or Moore

    After the disastrous personnel decisions Gase made last year we can only hope he doean't have his finger on the trigger anymore!

    That said -- we absolutely need to draft a RB!

    Love Frank Gore but the dude is just too old to count on in any significant way -- tho of course we could get "lucky" but that doesn't seem to happen for us very often. Beyond that -- counting on Drake for 16 games seems ??? given his history. But again -- we could get lucky...

    Ya have to laugh at those that think Cutler was a HUGE mistake. Being over dramatic imo.

    This is the perfect year to draft a young RB. The draft is deep at that position, so there will be value. Gore is at the end of the line and the young RBs on roster are not the future. Draft one now if the opportunity and value presents itself.

    Yea, he was obviously a bargain at $$$10-MILLION! I'm sure Ross counts that as some of the best MUNNIE he ever lost! LOL

    Regardless of whether they're still after C.J. Anderson, or whether the Broncos cut him, Miami grabs him, etc...they did not offer Ja'Wuan James for C.J. Anderson. Didn't happen. They wanted Anderson, but James as compensation was never on the table.

    Well....could've used that money this year to possibly sign Matthieu (1 yr/ $7 mil to Texans), Tyler Eifert (1yr/ 8mil) as well using towards a few others (Jordy Nelson, Crabtree) or sweetened the offer to keep Parkey....there were far better uses for where the $10 mil could & should have been used (or added to a multi year deal contract)

    That 10 mill, if it wasnt spent elsewhere, would have rolled over into this year's cap space, giving us another 10 mill to spend, possibly allowing us to keep Suh or Landry.

    I was going to put that in my post but I think, in his infinite wisdumb, Gase would've gotten rid of them in any event because they weren't Gase Guys.

    We're drafting a RB. As much as we need a LB and a FS, you win by scoring a lot in the NFL these days. We went heavy on defense last year and I have the feeling we're going offense this time around. I expect us to draft a QB,RB and a TE.....possibly an OT too

    I deserve that and apologize for saying the same to you, but I just don't think signing Cutler (or the $10 mil) has as much as an impact as it's made out to be by some of you. And it seems blown out proportion to CONSTANTLY bitch n moan about it still today. Did I want Cutler? Eff no! But I don't find it 'incompetence' by any stretch. I mean, no one is going to make the right decisions 100% of the time, some of you expect it though.

    Thats just hindsight talking.

    No matter the end result no one can take another victory against Tom Brady away from us. Those are good days. Nor will i forget the day we trounced Vance Joseph and John Elways Donkeys.

    Hanging a big fat L on the Falcons grand opening of their new stadium isn't something im willing to forget.

    I also do NOT expect negative outcomes like FORTY to ZERO -------------------------- EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good, let alone "great," HCs don't let that kind of absolute embarrassment happen.

    >>> and now I'm sure you're off to research "worst wins etc." but it's relative to CONTEXT!

    I say (at this point) Gase is a fraud until proven otherwise.

    And guess what??? He has a LOT more to prove that I do (as a "dimwit" fan!

    We do waste a lot of money... I'm talking about cap dollars here. Every stupid restructure, every bad FA, they add up. Each single instance is excused like this, "it's only 3 million". Sure, but 3 million times 5, times 6, times 7 works up to a bunch of money, to the difference between hanging on to a top free agent or two. And this is 10 million... I understand signing Cutler, I thought we could win with him, Gase certainly did, too. It was a mistake. But there's no "it's only 10 million" about it.

    No, I agree with most , but a fraud?! You're very emotional over this which makes me again believe this is blown out of proportion .

    A "fraud" is NOT an emotional answer. It's means a "pretender." An imposter. And I 100% hope Gase PROVES me wrong.

    But guess what? The proof is in the win/loss column.

    Pretty simple.

    Pretty obvious.

    We'll see soon enough.
