    ESPN on Mia TE neglect

    Bill Belichick has spent 10 draft picks on tight ends in his 11 years running the New England Patriots, including two first-round draft choices. New England is the NFL's highest-scoring team through that period. During the same period, the hapless Miami Dolphins have spent just three draft choices on tight ends, the highest a fourth-rounder. New England's winning two-minute drive against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday included three catches for 35 yards by tight ends.

    I dont even think miamis OC knows how to work in his Tight end. Such a huge part of a offense lost.

    They also have arguably(Aaron Rodgers) the best QB in the league, in Tom Brady. But yea, its obvious that we need a TE but we need a QB way worse.
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    "I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

    I think this is one of those covenant agreements they have with Bill Parcells.

    That is to keep the position uncompetitive and exclusive for players like Anthony Fasano. Thats the only explanation that makes sense. Its clearly a position that can be productive that is clearly ignored and littered with 2nd rate players paraded as starters.

    There's no other explanation.

    The irony is Parcells was allegedly a guru of the TE position.

    Yet, Tuna & his proteges... well you know...
    Your opinion & $5.00 will get me a fancy coffee drink at Starbucks.

    and the messed up part is that the last draft would have been a good time to do it, draft 2 te's and see what happens, what you got to lose

    This article is stupid and ignorant. Obviously the coaching staff has not been informed of what the TE position is and the value it brings to a team. Cut them some slack....
