hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
Wow. Over Atkins? One of the few times I find myself disagreeing with you Hoops.
meltons the prototype interior pass rusher in a 43 if you ask me...
A lot of the guys you listed are defensive players. Statistically the Pats defense have ranked 11th (2009), 25th (2010), 31st (2011) and 25th (this year)...if you're really good at drafting you're not sitting in the bottom 3rd in the league for 3 seasons and that's that they spent 2 first rounders on defense this year.
SOMEBODY has to start for the Dolphins, in order to field a team at all.
The difference is that our 10 starters are marginal wannabe talents that were picked by ireland, whereas the 8 still with the pats are at a much higher talent level. Ask yourself this question... how many of the 10 starters we still have could be starters for the pats? Or worse... how many of the 10 starters we have from that era COULD EVEN MAKE THE pats 53?
You would NOT like the answer.
Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.
Whats really depressing is if Long goes we'll likely have to use our first on a LT so that'll make 3 first rounders, a second and a third used on the O-line during Irelands tenure. Plus we'll need to draft another guard or two at some point too.
