    I think we do as well, although I'm not going to even bring up the big elephant in the room because he, and we all know the he i am referring to.... I have zero faith in. so while things look brightER... im holding my breath until the offseason takes shape, because it could be another disastrous dolphins offseason that murks up all this excitement

    they could have come up with every excuse in the book if they had a mediocre season, but they didnt. prior to the start of the season if you took a straw poll on here which team had more talent, us or the colts, it would be a resounding us. all i'm pointing out is that although you are totally correct in saying how with all the change the dolphins had this year how there are essentially built in excuses for why this team can settle for a mediocre season, i was just showing an extremely similar situation, with in some regards worse situations, and how one team still is "bright for the future" but didnt have to once again deal with a "dolphins season" and now reveling in moral victories about the season.

    Is the future BRIGHTER than it has been in the past, sure it has. But trying to spin this season into some sort of grandeur success against insurmountable odds after beating the mighty Jaguars and Bills is slightly out of place.
    A pretty good year has no sort of grandeur success but, does offer realistic hope for the future, which we have not realistically had for many a year. There is no Parade here, just a very fair amount of hope. No reason to rain on it.

    A number 1 receiver, 1 CB, 1 TE, 1 G and maybe a Tackle and we are ready to rumble, we need to resign Bush, Smith, Hartline and probably Starks

    I expect Miami to make the playoffs every year, and this year was no different.

    We had the same needs 5 years ago when Ireland took over as GM!

    Ireland has plenty of picks and lots of money to play with .... he better not screw this up next year.

    CAN'T WAIT for the off season to start. Tags, trades, FA, and the draft are gonna be something to see in the position we are in. I expect three impact players between all of the above. That's my over/under for Ireland, and with all the ammo he has, believe it's fair.
