    you guys act like jake cant cut it anymore as a OT, he is still one of the better OTs in the league, you dont move a OT to guard until they are washed up at OT. Jake is still a good OT

    give him time to adjust to a totally differnt o-line scheme than he has ever played.
    imo the last couple of games jake has gotten owned.

    Watching Long and Martin over the past few games, anyone championing the latter is out of their mind.

    LT suits Martin's skill set better than RT. They are different positions. Martin has nimble feet and is smart. There have always been questions about Long's ability to play on the left.
    I would like to see Martin on the left to see how he does. Long may actually be a pretty good RT at this point in his career.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    If they are thinking of letting Jake walk after this season, yes they should try Martin starting LT.

    Do you watch games??????? Jake Long has been abused by speedy pass rushers since his first year on the NFL, problem is lots of teams have one on this days. For the money he is making we could have 3 SOLID starters better as his position than he currently is; that is the main reason I would throw away an OVERRATED, EXPENSIVE and DECLINING multiple probowler!!

    The sad thing is, and it's nuts to think, but switching Long and Martin might actually be a great idea simply because of the ZBS scheme and their individual skillsets. It would never happen, though.

    You can be sure the Dolphins have a plan with Jake but we don't know that plan. For that reason, for me, it is too specific a question. My guess would be no you leave him where he is. I think they are likely keeping Jake Long so there is no point in messing around there.
    It's time to be successful Coach Philbin. Have you decided what you should master yet? It's time to step up Mr. Tannehill, you're starting year three too.
