Few questions heading into the season.
Ok. I am just wondering what rolls these guys will have not just this year, but seasons following.
First of, gibril wilson. i know he was brought in this year to fill hill's spot at FS (which i am exstatic about. hill was the worst part of our secondary last year). but since bell is into his 30's, will we pick up a real FS in this years draft or next years draft and then slide wilson over to SS? (since SS is where he plays his best).
Next, Cameron Wake. The hype for this guy is through the roof. i am very excited as well. but porter is also ageing just as bell is. if wake performs to the standards the FO has them at, will wake be porter's replacement soon.
And last, Eric Green. Im still not comfortable with Green starting opposite Allen. and also not comfortable with the fact that Green's competition for the starting job is none other than Jason Allen. I see the FO grabbing a CB with the first round pick and having the rookie who is drafted start opposite will allen. and slide green down to slot and have jason allen after. i would much rather that. or maybe green second string and the rookie third. i just want jason allen on the field as little as possible. but the receiving cores that we have to face the season are very scary. lee evans alone was a phin killer. now TO and Evans. thats not gonna be fun. and thats just the bills.
Now to wrap this up. Unlike alot of ppl on this forum, i am very happy of what the FO has done so far this off-season. except the Bodden thing. if eric green's contract is near bodden's i will not be happy. but besides that. the FO didnt get into any bidding wars for players and they have spent their money well to this point. the draft is in a month and a couple of days and i am overjoyed about what is in the future for the new miami dolphins. we are no longer in the group of atrocious teams that noone wants to watch in the NFL. and one last thing. PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!! BILL. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE US!!!
