Not that I wish anyone any true ill will but for the sake of the Dolphins season I hope Dewayne Robertson turns out to be a bust.

"I watch rookie phenom Dewayne Robertson closely for a few series, trying to see the explosion the Jets drafted him for. On seven snaps he's matched up, single-blocked, against either seventh-round guard Dave Youvanotis from Temple or veteran Tom Nutten, and on six of those, Robertson gets blocked or ridden outside the play. Once he penetrates and gets to the quarterback just after he throws. Uh-oh. Dave Yovanovits?"

I love it when any Jets picks are busts - hopefully Robertson can follow in Bryan Thomas' footsteps :evil:

Well the rumors were when he was coming out that he was 'overrated' and that he was not even nearly close to double teamed as much as people say he was and that he was left singled a lot.

We will find out though when he has Ricky lined up in his sights.

So true...actually he has to get pass our OL before Ricky is a concern to him and right now, he's not doing that..:lol:

wasn't robertson second team all conference at UK last year? i'm not sure how that translates into warren sapp... i guess everything is inflated and overhyped these days.

If you actually look at the success of first round picks (especially d-linemen), the success rate is about 50-50 at best. The odds that DR turns out to be nothing special are actually pretty good. The funny thing is all the Jets fans saying the loss of a proven talent at wr (Coles) is ok because of the DR gamble.

No way. Not even close.

:lol: :roflmao: I truly enjoyed reading some one other than a dolphin fan making fun of a jet player. I can't wait to see him get pancaked.
I hope he sucks horribly and they wasted the fourth pick or the draft.:jetssuck:

it doesn't matter who the jets have or don't have. Every year we seem to have problems with them. I hope this is the year when we sweep them but the fact you guys are talking about them tells me that we're still worry about them.If we wanna win the division we need to beat those jets.

Ozzy rules!!

Robertson has bust written all over him.

He will be a bust, i mean he only got about one sack in his whole college career (i'm exaggerating but he never got more than 10). He got big, thanks to workouts and combine and all that, he is one of my biggest bust candidates tied right up there with Boller and Suggs, who will bust out too.

Can we win a SB

I hope he is a bust for the jets and in like 3 years or more when he gets released or is a FA, i hope we get him and becomes a star...hahahaha that would be great...

Who knows, he could be a bust, but 1 mini-camp does not make a career. By the way, here is how he makes up for Coles. They signed Conway. So really it is Conway(before you say he sucks, realize that he had like 850 yards in 13 games in a running offense) and Robertson for Coles, which is a pretty good deal.

Actually its Coles vs Conway and a late first rounder...because the Jets used the compensation from Coles to move up in the first round to take Robertson.

Coles vs Conway and a late first rounder? I'd rather have Coles. Especially with Conway's age and extensive injury history. This is a guy the Phins were thinkin about signing as their 3rd WR / guy to compete with James McKnight...and the Jets have signed him to be their #1 WR.

BTW high first round DTs...more often than not, end up pretty good. I predict Robertson will be a high energy guy, able to shed and tackle, tie up blockers, but not really able to rush the passer. You really have to have some sick physical gifts like Warren Sapp or La'Roi Glover to be able to rush the passer from DT while being a full-time DT player.

YOu are right the draft pick as well, but then also throw in the fact that they would have been in cap hell matching that deal, I think they made a wise choice. And I absolutely love Laveranues Coles, ever since they got him in the 3rd round, but it was not smart to match that deal.

The cap figures in that deal were not very big in the first couple of years, I looked at them.

Meanwhile the contract they just gave Dewayne Robertson probably matches the figures that would have been paid to Coles.

Anyway its moot because its not like the Jets are faultless. If they had tendered Coles at the highest amount, merely paying 300k more than they tendered him at, the Redskins admit they would not have even made an offer. And a Pro Bowl caliber 1200 yard receiver in his 3rd year...a guy who has proven his worth even more than a guy like Peerless Price...you HAVE TO FRICKIN TENDER HIM THE HIGHEST! Heck I believe we tendered JT at the highest amount and that was before he was even a great DE.

Hey I agree with you, the front office made a mistake by not giving the higher tender, and I think that their initial contract offer was far too low, and more should have been done to sign him before Snyder could get his hands on him. However once the mistakes were made, a 14 million dollar signing bonus was too much.

Conway is no Coles, plain and simple...

A Bust is the last thing u need on that line with the loss of Ellis due to a drug violation

Amazing how wrong that is :rolleyes: . The Jets got a first rounder which they traded with their other first rounder for Robertson. Hence:

1st Rounder + Coles = Robertson

The fact that you signed Conway (something any team could have done and most chose not to) doesn't mean anything.

By your logic: Dolphins signed Darius Thompson so we must have traded him for Brent Smith?

Buddy, Conway was signed to replace Coles. That is how it is relevant. If Coles had re-signed there would be no Conway. Simple as that.

Bryan Thomas was supposed to be a force last year at DE and they're saying the same thing about Robertson this year. To me it's all propaganda until it translates to the field.
