Are you satisfied with how Miami handled the off-season?
Incoming bitching and moaning in 3...2...1...
I would be thrilled... if I thought Ross would hold Tannenbaum accountable for it.
But he won't.
not at all, think we made terrible moves all around. We lost better players than we got and still paying a kings ransom.
Not a bad way to look at it. I think you have to factor in the other cuts like suh,timmons,Thomas etc that freed up cap space.
Because this team always provides the upmost excitement and elation to the fans.
we'll see what happens. I just want T-bum gone at this point. I was hoping we didn't sign anyone and tanked the season like the NBA teams do.
I want to be positive. But if you take the situation as a whole, from the time Suh was signed it’s hard to be happy. But, after reading some of the post about Gase and his thinking about the type of players he wants, it’s evident he’s getting smarter less volatile players. In the mold of how he sees his team being built. Once the season starts, and the offense unfolds and develops, we’ll be able to judge how these signings fit in and how good or bad the offense is, with them?
But Miami wants smart leaders. And Amendola is wicked smaht!!!
I'm sure he will take those smarts and have an assistant coaching job in a couple years.
Love the moves at WR (depending on Amendola scratch), but the Suh thing bothers me, he better not f****** sign with NE.
I hate seeing Landry go, but we offered him a 5 year $65M contract. Its not like we didn't try. That is more than a fair offer.
the combined salary of Wilson and Amendola?
smart team players is what Gase wants. It's about the offense as a whole and not about super stars
If Wilson and Amendolas salary equals to about what we would have paid Landry I'm done with this team.
I think it's an ok move. If Wilson and Amendola can produce then it'll have worked itself out fine.
Reminds me of when I was a kid and I traded Ken Griffey Jrs Upperdeck rookie card for a bunch of 1989 Donruss Rate Rookies cards of players whose names I cant even remember.
I have to admit I have no idea what we’re doing but I can’t say I don’t like it.
I’m about to PM you threatening to snap your neck and murder your children if I ever see you.
Am I missing something here, because the new league year doesn’t start until 4:00 pm ET on Wednesday, March 14th?
It basically does depending on how it is structured
Another one done with this team.
Its another case of our FO and coaching staff thinking they are smarter than everybody and wanting to emulate what the Pats do on offense. Sadly, it never works for us.
So signing 2 receivers means Miami is trying to emulate the pats?
What woulda Landry have taken? I missed that part. Let me know when he gets a deal done before he gets 55 catches next year with Cleveland
Simmer down, hoops!
TERRIBLE...ill eat my words if this team does any better than year even with Tannehide at QB.
I just wonder what Landry would do with 2 GREAT TE's in Kelce and Gronk and 1 of the best QB and a good 1 in Brady and Smith.
Right around the time Dolphins coaches get the type of players they want on the roster is not long before they are fired. Unfortunately "getting the right players" usually results in bleeding what little talent the roster already had, then replacing with second-rate, overpaid or over the hill talent.
Eh!...Pretty much a typical Dolphins offseason.....rinse and repeat.
I have absolutely no clue what The Trifecta is doing with these moves.
I totally get them not being interested in bringing back Landry at that price -- or at all if his attitude was that big a problem -- but they could have re-signed Landry a year ago for the money they've just shelled out on this position. And while Jakeem Grant showed he's ready for a bigger role in 2018, we still needed to add a wide receiver at some point...but TWO? And those two? And Wilson at that price? And a 32-year-old Amendola after you break the bank for Wilson? If Amendola makes the 53-man roster out of training camp, one of those three is going to be inactive on Sundays.
If there's a logic to these moves, Carroo will need to play his a-- off in training camp to stay in the league (doubtful in Miami) plus Parker and Stills are playing this season for one job in 2019.
Umm yeah, how many 5'10 slot receivers do we have now? Seems to me that Gase wants to run the dink and dunk bubble screen to the 'High Football IQ" slot guys similar to NE.
Which makes it even more incredible that the answer is already "no" before it even started.
Great strategy if we can just get Brady and Belicheck now.
We just have to see what happens. 1 lucky pick at 11 could change everything. If we get a superstar franchise QB at 11 a lot can change.
Amendola, Wilson, Parker and Stills would be locks for a roster spot in 2018. I guess for now it's Carroo, Grant and Ford fighting for a 5th and maybe 6th spot.
I'd bet my salary he has significantly more catches than that, close to 1000 yard's if not more, and improves his YPC substantially in Cleveland.
I think you’re forgetting Miami offered him 13.5 million.
They actually offered him that.
let's see we traded our best offensive player for pennies and cut our best defensive player while eating $22m over the next two years to play elsewhere. so you say, maybe we are rebuilding and trying to fix a cap disaster...but then wonder why, despite having obvious cap issues they are trying to address, we keep our former Pro Bowl C who is a shell of himself with two bad hips and can't practice. being confused by this you remember we trade for a big contract pass rusher with injury concerns. bizarre. then sign two receivers to deals totaling the amount we would have paid our best offensive player to come back, and make no effort to re-sign our best kicker we have had in nearly a decade who grew up a Dolphins fan of all things. to date our best move has been resigning a core special teams player that is a total liability if asked to play defense. i have never been more lost by offseason moves in my 33 years of being a Dolphins fan.
