I read that. Not everyone's objection to cutting Edds had to do with what he is currently doing, but had more to do with development and allowing him to recover some of that speed. But a coach who needs performance now doesn't have the luxury of 'redshirting a guy".

Wait. Are you an Edds hater, Spitler lover, or FO homer? Spitler has done nothing, ever, in any playtime he has ever received. He has 6 solo tackles in the entire preseason. Edds had 6



last game. Edds had 16 tackles in the preseason total while receiving pretty much the same amount of PT. He also has a sack. ****, Edds has more tackles this preseason than Spitler has in both preseasons combined.

For a "coverage" LB it seems he shouldn't have to many tackles, I didnt watch every one of his snaps but how many of his tackles where after the TE or RB caught the ball while he was covering him?

Stats don't tell the story.

Exactly. First, I do like Edds and he will be in this league for a while. But, right now his main job is to prevent receptions, and he just wasnt doing that. He'll hopefully make the PS...thats why the dolphins waited to cut him.

Obviously the coaches and FO no something we don't...you watch a couple PRESEASON Games and that makes you a pro scout?...if you had credentials or any credibility you would back up your argument with more than just a couple of PRESEASON viewings and statistics...what you see is not always what you get in preseason...like when they kept Nolan carrol over will Allen I scratched my head at first til I heard sparano say Carroll was lights out all thru camp...so I'm not an Edds hater or Spitler lover or FO homer...I'm a Miami Dolphins Fan and Supporter...what are you?

You're a homer that probably have said the same **** for Wannstedt, Bates, Saban, and Cam. "Oh they PROFESSIONALS, THEY KNOW WHAT THEY DOING, YAYAYAYAYA, U GUYS ARE INTERNET GM'S AND SCOUTS, BLAHBLAHBLAH". Grow up. Just because they made the decision does not mean they made the right one. And just because they have the job does not make them great or even good talent evaluators. This regime hasn't proven **** to no one so anyone can indeed question them when ever they feel like it.

Edds did not impress me at all. Even when he 'filled the hole' he almost got run over, and I certainly did not see what the "coverage LB" was all about.... he was always chasing, not breaking on the ball.

You are correct. people are over-reacting, but that doesnt make them any more or less of a fan.
You are keeping it all in perspective, and there's lots to be said about that.
Others wear it directly out on their sleeve, and we are ALL tired of seeing a really bad team.... I think we all need to agree to disagree on this. If all the banter and complaining is bothering you, just dont read it.....its just not that important

Nobody is saying that someone is less of a fan,but at some point if you say something aloud that sounds completley irrational, and expect people to call it for what it is it goes both ways positive and negative.
so dont attack people becuase they call others out on thier BS.

I didnt want Miami to draft Vontae Davis because all I saw was a lazy SOB like his brother was. All talent but no commitment. I was wrong. I was happy they drafted Henne, happy they drafted Long, happy they didnt draft Mallett.
