    I'd agree. I think we need an elite pass rusher, a few more good targets for Tannehill in the passing game and help in the secondary. I've said it before that I really think this team is gearing toward being very competitive by 2014. With the right players, I could definitely see the team contending next year and maybe making the playoffs. I am very encouraged by this coaching staff, how well Tannehill is playing so early, the offensive line and the defensive line. We have some nice strenghts to build on.

    Dude, did you completely ignore they think he sucks in Indy?

    Talented kid that lacks the heart....plain and simple...he only gets you beat.

    Sean Smith is becoming a stud, better than Vontae ever was, Carroll is developing and you can expect a few corners to be coming to town from the next draft and/or free agency.

    We will find a starting corner with the heart of a champion, not a loser.

    How many draft picks from rd5-7 make teams? We cant hit every one,and yes we did compete with the Texans.We made a few rookie mistakes that cost us the game but until then Houston had all they could handle.I bet to a man if tou asked them if they want to see us later in the year again it would be overwhelming NO.We are going forward for the first time in years and some of you people are still bitching.Go root for the Jests or Bills there team dont have problems!

    We need to get 2 Wr's. 1 through FA and a stud in the draft
    1 starting corner and 1 more for depth
    Upgrade at safety to replace Clemons

    And obviously replacements for anyone we lose in FA.

    I think 4-5 is more realistic and we can get em by next year

    We make 2 kicks we're 4-1, as is I like our chances of being 3-3 going into the bye. Considering how we felt after the first 5 games of August & week 1 vs Houston, we're in 7th heaven right now. If Gaffney could be as good as he was for Denver, I think we have enough there. The idea of a perfect team is just delusional. You need a few great ones some good ones and some average ones that can all play well as a team, unit for unit. You think of how many 10-6 or 9-7 teams have won Superbowls and you realize that it transcends the talent of individual players.
    Without a back-up WR David Tyree making a circus catch that he couldn't replicate in a 100 tries, NE has an undefeated season. A week after that though the Giants GM was thinking, 'In order to repeat, we need X more good players..."
    I'd like us to have a better FS, more depth at RG and RT and a catch-all O-line guy, I REALLY wish we had one more good pass-rusher but maybe Vernon can grow into that more than he has so far. I like that guy Shelby we drafted and am curious to see where he's going.
    By the time we sign the core of our team for next season, we'll have enough left over for 1 superstar FA or 2 decent ones and money to sign some draft picks. But that alone could be good enough. I think this season so far has proven that we have a great core group of guys. No one shoves us around on either side of the ball and most teams in the NFL can't say that. With both Dansby and Burnett healthy, we're looking great there, IMO.
    But what's between the ears and in the heart will go just as far this season as another guy or two with greater tangibles. This Dolphins team is a tough out and for the Bengals we were too tough. We will pound teams that aren't ready to play hard (like the Raiders) and it will require a team's best to beat us. Our team seems to have character and that will go a long way. Losing because our kicker has been a little off is frustrating, but it's time to take the training wheels off and start creating margins of victory beyond the reach of one missed FG.
    I'd like an upgrade at FS, WR and DE, but just 1 or 2 of these could be enough.
    Matching up with the 'Niners seems far-fetched. They're killing people because they're just too strong and athletic on defense. I'd love to see us follow their example and keep getting stronger and faster on 'D. Our offense right now is as good as theirs, IMO.

    Reciever, Corner, Safety, Pass Rusher and then some added depth on top of that. Were far more than 2-3 players away.
