View Full Version : Never thought I'd read these words in The Herald!

"Not only did Miami move the ball on the ground, the offensive line actually mauled Chicago's front seven. L.J. Shelton and Damion McIntosh had pancake blocks that were replayed on TV, and on each occasion the result was the same. The blocks erased a Bears defender from the picture."


Of all of yesterday's surprises, this was the biggest!

Got me to thinking! Who on this line do we keep for next season? Here are my thoughts:



-Macintosh: He's servicable at LT. Not great, but not a leaky faucet either. Unless a premier LT emerges somewhere, I'd leave him there for now.

-Carey: The truth is this guy is pretty good, and he's found a home at RT. We'd be crazy to give up on him now. He's probably our best lineman.

-Shelton (maybe): Let's give him the rest of the season at RG to see how his transition ultimately goes. It could be a re-birth for him (outmanned at LT, but can use his talents better inside).

As far as James and Hadnot, we can do better. Still, it can't hurt to keep them on the rost as back-ups if we can.

Thoughts? Who would you keep, dump?

It was nice to see those words, very very nice. :)

It has been said here many times "When the OL plays well, the running game will work, the QB will be given time for the plays to develop and not feel the pressure, and the Phins D won't tire in the 4th leading to a Miami win". It was nice to see those words come true in such a big game.

As for the OL, it would be nice to fill the holes in the offseason but there is next to nothing as far as FA goes. There are absolutely no C available and the LT market is thin at best. The only way I see the Phins filling those needs is in the draft or through trade. Leonard Davis is an interesting name, but he has never lived up to his draft hype. Steinbach is another name out there (I don't know enough about him to comment).

Carey - He's a keeper

Shelton - I agree, lets see what he can do at RG for the remainder of the season and if he continues to play well he stays. So far it looks like this might be his spot.

C - Hadnot is a pretty good RG, but if LJ has that position next season where does that leave him? Center is not his best position and if we can find a C somewhere Hadnot would be a man without a position. But who is there to get?

James - A lot depends on what is available, is Davis an upgrade? Does Saban give Hadnot a chance here?

LT - This is a very important part of the OL, I would prefer a veteran here. If the Phins have a chance at Joe Thomas do you take him? Would you feel comfortable with a rookie protecting Culpepper's blindside?

We won't know until the season is over where the Dolphins will be picking in next years draft, maybe there will be a surprise or two in FA and someone will become available. Right now the only guy that should be penciled in for a spot next year is Carey IMO.

You're right, in a perfect world, we'd have upgrades at the other four positions, but it's going to be tough.

That's why I think Macintosh will be the guy for at least one more year at LT. Start w/ the corners, and move in.

Ther'es always McKinney coming back too. He did have a good '05, but what will the injury do.

OK, I'm getting way ahead of myself w/ all the off-season talk. I got carried away w/ how well the line played yesterday. They can't all stay for sure, but there appears to be some talent there after all!

Congrats on the win. The wife and I watched the entire game in deep awe.

Clearly the Dolphins had something to prove and did.

Maybe now they can stop all the Bears in the Super Bowl talk. If they play like that a few more weeks, hell.. the Jets might have a chance! :)

If nothing else, Taylor said it best when he said something like "If you can get to Rex and smack him in the mouth, he is a different QB."

I am hoping we can do just that.

They are not going to Bench Rex. No way. That would be great if they did though.

Hope we can get the stadium up and roaring and stick it in for a long fight because the Jets are not going to win any games pretty this year.

That's my thoughts, especially without Strahan.

It was the Bears D that won that Arizona game. In this one, though, Miami's offense and ST didn't cooperate with TOs and poor play, so the Bears D couldn't score.

The Jets can certainly win though they don't have a Jason Taylor to terrorize the Chicago offense. I'd say they still have a good chance, I doubt they'll get bent over like Buffalo did.

I pretty much agree. Miami needs a C and LT, both of which aren't easy to find in free agency. Hadnot seems to be a decent RG but a less than adequate C. Shelton is playing RG because there's nobody else, but if Hadnot goes back to RG, then moving Shelton over to LG might be an improvement over James.

Tackles are supposed to be both big and quick, something that doesn't come in the same package a lot (which is why good tackles, especially LTs, are so valuable.) Sometimes a LT who's just not quick enough makes a better than average LG (the Bills have moved Mike Gandy from LT to LG, and his first outing was a success). Another possibilty for LT is to move Carey on that side. Since most QBs are right handed, the left side is their blind side which makes the LT (who takes on DEs) and LG so very important.

Agree, C and LT are our most pressing needs. Hadnot might be OK if you move him to RG but onl as a backup to Shelton. We need a power LT, somebody huge, hopefully we can draft this position well.

I see what you're saying but I don't think the Phins should keep shuffling the OL, there has to be some sort of stability so players aren't constantly trying to get accustomed to new roles. I actually think that the OL has played very well over the past few weeks, they are opening holes for the running game and have protected Joey very well. But there definitely are places that need attention.

Moving Shelton to RG seems to be a very wise move so far, it might just be a temporary bandaid we'll have to wait and see. Right now the weakest link is Hadnot, he has done an admirable job filling in for McKinney but just isn't good enough to be the anchor of this line. I don't feel comfortable counting on Seth to be the starter and stay healthy next year, at least not without another true center on the roster.

LT is going to be hard to fix. If the Phins somehow find themselves in position to draft Joe Thomas, should they take him? Some people are saying that he has stubby arms and projects better at G, I don't know because I don't watch alot of college ball. But I don't want to count on a rookie to protect Cpep from reinjuring his knee, like I said before I would like to see a veteran at LT. If that means resigning McIntosh for another year so be it. The Phins picked the wrong year to be 21 mil under the cap. There is nothing available, Max Starks is a restricted FA, but Pitt isn't going to let him go and the price wouldn't be worth it. Leonard Davis is a big guy, but hasn't lived up to his hype. There really aren't many options and the Phins would be better off signing McIntosh rather than spending money just for the sake of doing so. Besides, the Phins have 21 players that will be free at the end of the year, they HAVE TO resign Welker and Bell, they really don't have 21 mil to spend freely anyway after taking care of all of those positions. I think McIntosh is the wise move unless they can find an upgrade at a very reasonable price.

Briggs is playing well, don't know his situation
Like Freeney, Clements isn't going anywhere
I don't know alot about Grant :confused:

I really think that OL, LB, S, and WR (I think this is Booker's last season in MIA) are the biggest areas of concern, but I don't want to see the Phins throwing big money around just for the sake of doing so. If it makes sense then fine, otherwise they should be conservative.

Agreed on this.

Bills have a lot of cap room to play with this off-season, with high payed vets like Milloy, Adams, and Moulds now off the books. That, on top of about 10 million free currently.

One name I do like to see on that list is Justin Gage, the WR from Chicago. He's buried on the depth chart behind Muhsin and Berrian. He's a very tall guy, who wins tons of jumpball battles.

Exactly what the Bills need, without spending a bunch.

I'm excited about the off-season already! :D

We don't need Schaub, no matter what, Daunte is the QB next year. Not all of the players that make it to FA are attainable, the really good players will be tagged (Freeney, Clements). Carswell is indeed a good T but he suffered some serious internal injuries and might not even be ready for next year. Maybe Briggs, Grant or Davis will be worth a look, right now it is way too early to make a shopping list of players, I just thought that I would share the list to show how thin the list is at OL.

We don't need Schaub, no matter what, Daunte is the QB next year. Not all of the players that make it to FA are attainable, the really good players will be tagged (Freeney, Clements). Carswell is indeed a good T but he suffered some serious internal injuries and might not even be ready for next year. Maybe Briggs, Grant or Davis will be worth a look, right now it is way too early to make a shopping list of players, I just thought that I would share the list to show how thin the list is at OL.

.

Schaub for backup, lose Joey.We do need a few O-Linemen, LB, S,maybe a D-linemen if Traylor retires.

First off, Schaub is a restricted FA and if he did leave ATL he would be looking for an opportunity to start, he won't get that here unless Culpepper has a huge setback.

I agree that we need OL help but there isn't going to be much out there unless there are other names that I missed or may become available. LB is a definite need, Secondary is a definite need and DL could become an area of concern. And if this is Booker's last season in MIA, WR will need to be addressed. Again, I didn't want this to turn into a FA shopping list, it's way too early for that. Some of these guys will sign before the season is over and others will get the Franchise tag slapped on them.

Also, L2G you have to remember, some teams will be cutting big name players to make the salary cap. So, if the names on the list aren't an option, other players will become available.
