First off il start with philbin
-Excellent Head coach, has done well keeping the team together and bringing us back to respectable levels around the league. 4-3 with less talent than last year under philbin, 0-7 with more talent under sparano, the numbers clearly show why philbin is our long term HC. He was picked carefully and has my approval and support. I think hes the guy to lead us back to contending, i love seeing coach philbin pissed off on the sidelines dropping some f bombs, lmao. Calm, collective, but that can change in an instant when things arent going right. I love how we fought hard against the niners and competed with a superbowl caliber team til the end, it was far from an asswhooping but they did beat us, we went out swinging though, we threw deep atleast 5+ times in the 4th quarter and would not quit. Sparano would never play to win like that, i hate to bring him up but its hard to forget about that guy all those painful football games we had to endure under him.
QB- Tannehill Our Franchise qb Without a doubt, needs a ton of time to develop but im a believer in tannehill. He has missed some throws and strugged but we all expected that to him. Dont know why ppl are surprised when a rookie struggles? With another offseason under him next year and a years experience, i think tanne improves alot more and starts to show it next season. You gave chad henne four years ppl, give tanne atleast 2 before calling for his head.
-Reggie bush I'd like to keep him, i think he has made some good strides under philbin, finally starting to see reggie run straight ahead without the dancing that has hurt us badly. Dont know if we can afford to keep him but if we can, i'd keep him. Decision is on irelands.
-Lamar Miller 1st round potential talent, looked impressive with the few chances he has got this year. I see him being our permanent franchise RB barring any setbacks.
Daniel Thomas im not a fan of DT at all and if it was up to me i'd cut ties. Lack of vision, and the lack of getting the most out of his runs bothers me. With his frame he should not be going down so easy, i feel like he doesnt give us all he has and goes down after the first initial contact. Often i see him trying to juke defenders when hes more of the run over you type of RB but doesnt seem to be his thing. After the concussions, he seems to be avoiding contact. Move on.
Thigpen Stock up, i know he had the fumble against the niners but this is a talent we cant let get away because of 1 fumble. Bess even had a few fumbles as special teamer a few years ago and now look at him.
Bess - Needs to be moved back to his position, has been one of my favorite players on this team for years outside of vontae.
Hartline - Would hate to see him go, a great 2nd option at wr and always gives you 110%.
Apart from these 2, theres not much else to say about the WRs, its a position that has to be upgraded via free agency or the draft.
-Misi, Great tackler, has really made our defense better against the run. Great pick by ireland.
-Burnett I'd like to get an upgrade for this dude if we can, hes solid but just looks lost out there at times and very sluggish.
-Dansby Stock up, playing injured all season and still makes a great impact on our defense.
-Sean smith Cut ties, i thought smith was our guy early on but he doesnt bring it on every play, takes plays off and looks lazy out there.
-Carroll Solid, i'd lock him up, not a gamebreaker by no means by i like the effort that he brings to the defense.
-Reshad Jones- Future Prowbowler and a gamebreaker, i called this a steal the moment we took him in the 5th round. Glad to have him.
-Odrick I know alot of ppl been dissappointed with odrick lately but dont give up on him yet, saw some great things from him against the niners. One play Odrick completely Trucked his blocker and would have got a sack had wake not gotten to the qb first. Also had many more hurries in the game and finished with a sack. Impressed with what he brought in the niners game.
Thats pretty much it for now, Hope we have a good draft next year and we can improve this offense. I think the defense is good but our offense is not good. Offense needs weapons, fast.
