    I don't think so, but I want to see what others think. Many people on here dislike the signing so a poll is a good way to gauge average fan opinion on the matter. I do think the contract was too much unless it has injury clauses all throughout it.

    I don't think Grove will create holes in the middle. We play in a division that you have to scheme to get running lanes there.

    I think he will be ok, a slight upgrade over Satele, but still not the dominant run blocker we need.

    that pretty much nails it

    it is hard to respond to a poll that is rigid and narrow

    I think he will do well for us. Apparently he has only missed 12 or 13 games total from injury. He wasn't the starter in his first two years. Which is not horrific for 5 years. So, I am quite optimistic about him but, only time will tell.

    and within every dewdrop
    a world of struggle.

    first question is;

    1) will he be able to play 8 games (Historically the asnwer to this question is definately not)

    and then we can ask;

    2) will he be the next ernest wilford
    I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious

    1) I don't think it really matters what the average fan thinks about the acquisition of Groves. everything is resolved in the game. we will know nothing until the first preseason is played. until then, it's all purely speculation and/or wishful thinking. what I do think is the BrainTrust makes very few errors in judgement & is always well prepared for any contingency. they have a plan & it will be revealed only as it unfolds. it's the Parcells way. And Groves is a part of the plan.

    2) Wilford may yet redeem himself. no one knows what happened to him last season. personal problems abound in every dimension of life & no one escapes them. obviously, he had a bad year. the other end of it, is that he was a consistent play-maker when @ Jacksonville. don't be surprised to see him reestablish himself with the Dolphins as a play-maker in 09 & don't be too disappointed if he doesn't. either he will fish or cut bait: I say the jury is still out on this one.

    By the way, I am not in favor of acquiring another WR in FreeAgency. the stable is set for 09, with the exception of drafting a WR prospect, it is over & done with for 2009.

    jake has a mean streak, he kicked dan klecko in the nuts in college. So if a nose is kicking his butt as dirty as it is jake is going to make him pay for it, so the mean streak is there lets just hope it leads to smash mouth football.
