    Koa Misi will not start at MLB. That is such a joke.

    Misi is a depth player fellas, his tools are extremly limited. Ask opposing lineman to sum up hs game and they will say two words: bull-rush. Considering we could of had Gronk, Misi was a fail..

    Don't we here this every off-season>this team needs to be vertical. Blah, blah, blah. Just make this team good already. I could care less if it is vertical or not.

    Misi is brutual. He never makes any impact plays. I would love to see him in another uniform come 2012. I doubt it happens.

    2009-you might be correct]
    2010=we had merling and langford who were certainly better than many of the linemen on our team
    2011-C although not a strength was not as bad as our guards
    2008 - Carey was not good at LT and we did not have any RT. Nobody!
    2009 - We agree
    2010 - Our line was Long-Smiley-Grove-Thomas-Carey - at the end of 09 season projected as a top 5 line. If you look at depth chart going into draft there were no massive needs, but Ferguson has just been suspended for 8 games and FO wanted a better passrush and more rotation out of front. Im not saying I agree and maybe this is the one year u have an argument, but Ireland 100% had the intention of starting Odrick with Starks at NT.
    2011 - We had Incognito playing Centre and if not Joe Berger! Centre was definately a need!
    Draft
    1-WR-Marqise Lee
    2-DT-Louis Nix
    3-OG-Gabe Jackson
    4-QB-AJ McCarron
    5-DT-Daniel McCullers
    5-CB-Antone Exum
    6-OT-Antonio Richardson
    7-OT-Seantrel Henderson

    The Dolphins have told at least four people they want to play a 4-3 defense primarily, with some 3-4, and would be comfortable Karlos Dansby, Kevin Burnett or Koa Misi manning the middle. Ireland has raved about the potential of Dansby in that role, but Misi has good instincts for the spot, too.

    Among the half dozen players linked to the Dolphins with the No. 8 pick, South Carolina linebacker/end Melvin Ingram helped himself at the NFL Combine and Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw hurt himself, with lack of explosiveness. But Ireland said he had his draft board set before the Combine “because they’re not playing football. They’re just running around in shorts.”

    upshaw is going to be a stud. just ask LSU about his explosiveness.

    imo we already have a speedster in Gates ,only if he can get better at route running and better catching the ball , imo if its peyton throwing Gates the ball there will be touch on it so Gates with a lil more pratice he will only get better.

    big arguement on 2008. Carey was an ok LT not the best but ok far from the biggest hole on the team. Qb had John Beck and thats about it. Wr was a bigger hole than LT
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.
