    One, the Dolphins have in excess of 12 mil in dead cap money this season. Two, if he gets a partial credit for successes with Parcells, he gets partial responsibility as well. The list of bad draft picks and free agent signingsis long over the last 5 years.

    We have won 2 games people, wait until the season is over until we crown the man King. The people who downgrade him at least have multiple seasons of at best mediocrity off which to base their opinions.

    The point you make worded differently, as well, is that every time we pick up a FA a lot of fans here jump up and down assuming that person will be great. There are things you do, just to test the waters and see what that player can bring to the team. This is just about always going on. I'm sure in some cases team management is not expecting as much as the fans. I'll give that point to Ireland.

    However, just because we are having some success, does not mean everything was great either. Wins can hide issues.

    I'm a wait and see with this team, but so far so good this year. They are doing better in all areas than I expected. Lets see if it continues.
    A strong sign we have not improved, is the same tired threads on the forum every year.

    How are we lacking depth? Our D-line is deep,our RBs are deep, Matt Moore is about as good a backup QB as there is, we have quality depth at receiver between Matthews fuller and Gaffney, despite losing Vontae we have good depth at DB.

    I am sure you are aware that Gaffney has not played a down, Matthews has been inactive 4-5 games, Fuller is on the PS and they only have 3 CBs.

    I keep reading that we have great RB depth. Thomas sucks and Miller can't grasp the playbook. There is a reason our running game becomes pedestrian whenever Bush stubs his toe.

    I agree with some of your points...depth is good at QB, RB, D-line...however, that is it. No depth on the O-line, receiver, LB, and at DB.

    Any run of normal injuries and the Fins are screwed.

    If you were not here, how can you make that statement? That said, there were many of us who wanted Flynn, myself included, but I recall the general consensus was the Seabirds overpaid for him. I don't recall anyone wanting him at 10 mil.
