I was a little disappointed by the Pat White and Patrick Turner picks until I had a revelation. The one area on offense that the Dolphins really struggled with last year was scoring TDs once the ball was in the red zone. Now, imagine if you will:

Pat White lined up as the Wildcat QB with Ronnie Brown behind him. Brandon London (6'4), Patrick Turner (6'5) and Joey Haynos (6'7) out wide with Anthony Fasano (6'4) as a down TE. Remember how upset we all were in that Jets game where Ginn wasn't tall enough to catch the potential game-winner and Revis took it away? How does the red-zone offense look now? :D

Intriguing possibility.

It does seem like the phins struggled in the Red zone last season especially the opener against the jest.

Well when you have three downs and don't run for 1 -2 yards...and you have two running backs like Ronnie and Ricky...you deserve to lose.

sounds more like an O-line issue.

I already did. The first thought I had was the Jets game where Ginn couldnt go up for a jump ball if it killed him. Also, yes, Pat White just became deadly at the goaline and red zone. We come out with four wide and roll out and your talkin dangerous because White gets rid of the ball quickly and with a zip while on the run.

People will come to love the concept more and more. Trust in David Lee.

How are they all still on the team? I presume only two of London / Hartline / Turner will make the roster. And only two of Martin / Haynos / Nalbone.

I don't know the TE plans but I think London might find himself back on the PS. I'm guessing we're very high on both Hartline and Turner, we invested quite a lot in comparison to their college career production.
