    So far so good. We stayed away from spending crazy money. If some team wants to make JuAnn James the highest paid RT ever they're nuts and that's their business. The guy is soft, he starting to miss lots of games and he wasn't even the best tackle on the Dolphins. We can insert Davis at RT, he did a fine job at RT when James was out.

    All of the above in mind is correct - but those days of Shula doing it the right way the Lombardi way are gone. And the bellicheats of the world have soured the sport you have to use the rules to hit advantage like slimm said

    I see what you are saying but this FO is not setting up moves to win they are setting up moves to eventually win

    Which stills falls under tanking

    You two could be right, but I
    still think attitude and heart will out do better talent...even the Patriots did not get Brady in the 1st.

    What if 6th round QB Tom Brady had not found himself with a HC like Belichick, they both helped each other be successful.

    Now what if Flores is the real deal, and decide to let them fall where they may by drafting (or at least trying to draft) a coachable QB this year, and with his coaching staff they try to develop the QB they pick this year, with the idea of if he succeeds...good, if he fails, go for a QB In 2020.

    I don't know, maybe I am being a little or a lot old fashioned, but losing on purpose to me us like salt to a wound. Lol

    Our mismanagement and the Bils and Jets are largely to blame is all I am saying

    The Pats have a greased schedule to the POs - and generally have homefield that is a great advantage

    The Pats should send the Fins a fruit basket every year for our mismanagement

    Ok, so maybe this is unpopular, but I want every single coach and every single player on the team doing their damnedest to win every single game. Anything else is unacceptable to me, I'm not going to root for anyone not trying to win. That's me.

    I think Cleveland is getting greedy now... and it will ultimately derail what was a positive track towards long term success.

    Landry and Beckham onnthr same team?.... too many ego’s in that clubhouse!

    Landry and Beckham are like brothers. They literally grew up in the same house together. I'm sure they will get along just fine.

    My fav Dolphin is playing for Clevland so I'm happy they got OBJ personally, been rooting for them since we gave them Landry for a sack of peanuts

    That’s not the point.... the giants got tired of Beckham’s ego....They are not boys anymore.

    The best football teams are made up of unselfish team first type players....you get too many selfish players on a team and it will fail.

    I think the Giants saw the writing on the wall after what Brown did to the Steelers. I think the Giants thought Beckham would pull the same thing as Antonio Brown did with the Steelers down the road. In addition, the Giants got a nice haul in trading Beckham compared to what the Steelers received in the Brown trade.
