    Player Michael Egnew

    Time to activate him on Sundays. The physical talent is there, 6 foot 5 250 lbs runs a 4.6 40. We are out of the playoff mix, lets see if this guy can help the offense, what do we have to lose?

    Same goes for Rishard Matthews how is this guy not getting playing time ahead of Marlon Moore? We know what Moore can do, at least Matthews seems to have the speed to take the top off the defense.

    Excellent question, Sir Drums, and I think too many people get lost in this "we have to see what we've got!" ignoring the answer to that question.

    Sit Fasano - Our best combination receiver and blocker, and it's not even close.
    Sit Clay - And interrupt his development? Seems silly.
    Sit Maestrud - This is most likely. Solid blocker but honestly, nobody is fooled when he's in. Maybe just substitute Fasano for him? Fasano is 8/10 blocker while Maestrud is a true 9.5/10 blocker, but he's awful and slow in the receiving game.

    I say you wait until the next Buffalo game, and you roll the dice, activating Egnew. See if he's capable of being what you hope he is.

    Can someone tell me why we can't just line Egnew up as a receiver? He isn't good enough to block at an NFL level but that doesn't mean he shouldn't play especially considering we could use any receiving threat available!!!

    Egnew can't block, so his natural position is the H-back spot, held by Charles Clay. And I'd rather see Charles Clay develop chemistry with Ryan Tannehill.

    We've already got two starting WRs running 4.6 or slower. Might as well have one that is big!

    Bess runs a 4.7 and Hartline a 4.6 -- rounded to the closest tenth, on average. People have no idea how the slowest starting WR tandem in the league impedes the Dolphins success on the field -- and limits RT as a QB. Anytime your starting WR has to get open by coming back to the QB on a regular basis [running hard back toward the line of scrimmage just to get a yard separation]... well, you know he's slow. It crunches the field down to where every play is played almost in a redzone box, because the D ABSOLUTELY doesn't have to worry about a deep threat. It limits the O and running game terribly. And makes RT hit zero opening windows for gains. Lots of pressure on a QB. And an impossible task, over the course of a season.

    And not only do the SLOW starting WRs impede the Offense, they also impede the D. Why? Because every day in practice our Defensive backs are going against WRs that are as slow as most teams starting LBs -- or slower. Then when they line up against WRs with legit NFL speed, they are not ready...

    Bottom line: We've got the slowest starting WR tandem in the league. Until Hartline and Bess are the 4 and 5 WR on this team, with legit NFL WRs at the 1 and 2, this team is doomed for mediocrity.

    It's amazing to me how people can get HIGH on mediocre talent. This DOOMS a team. Anyone with half an eye can see this, say, when it's the Jets. The Jets got high on mediocre talent Sanchez, and it's doomed them. It's kind of funny to see another team do it, lol. But when the FINS and FANS get so high on mediocre talent like Bess and Hartline, they fail to see how it dooms a team. But it does, every time.

    Can't get high on mediocre talent without creating a mediocre team.

    4.6 WR? We already got two, folks. And it ain't pretty.
