You can even overpay them slightly at the time but in reality it works out better for the team in the end. The obvious risk is if the player turns into a complete disaster but we're paying Ireland the big bucks to make sure he extends the right guys.

    It comes down to simple game theory. We now know what the ideal play was, whichever gm comes closest to making the ideal play wins. You don't think there are any gms out there that wouldn't have had the foresight to extend these guys at the right time?
    so how much do u extend Hartline for early. I mean u sign him long term and he puts up 30-40 receptionms and 500 -600 yards and 1 td, now u are stuck way overpaying a guy that doesnt deserve it. I dont think any gm in the league would have extended hartline to much of a contract based on what he had done so far.
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    No way we franchise tag Smith. We'd be paying top five money for an average corner. There's a reason why teams love throwing his way.

    Any young player you plan on keeping around should be extended, its as simple as that, and especially ones making less than a million a year. Obviously its not an easy task to figure out who exactly we should extend but that's Ireland's job, he gets paid millions of dollars to read the tea leaves. Just about anybody can play the wait and see game, a good GM should have both foresight and conviction that he's right.

    Good poker players get a read early and go with it by being aggressive and fearless, generally either raising or folding. Bad poker players just call, call, call until they see what happens on the river. Ireland is a bad poker player.

    Well predicting Hartline would have a 1000 yard year was about as easy to predict as you opponent has a royal flush

    miami can probably sit on hartline while they entertain the demands of the top wrs in free agency if they decide to throw their hat in the ring on them...hartline doesn't have to be a must get done guy from the get go...really sean smith doesn't either given the way his second half of the season went...he hurt his market big time...but we also have to be careful that these guys might get a good offer and never give miami a chance ...i could see someone offering smith $8 mil per and betting on he's coming into his prime...i can't see hartline attracting more than $6 mil per from anyone...i think the league knows what hartline is...
    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"

    hartlines not worth a tag...lets not get crazy here...transition or franchise with hartline hell no...you put a 1st round tender on hartline and you'll be paying him that tag amount cause no ones coming for him with that kind of compensation...ha ha

    i promise you that...

    i'm not big on tagging anyone of our free agents...$10.6 mil for sean smith for one year??? off how he fared the last half the season??? hells no...

    All you need to project is whether or not he's a guy you want on your team, thats it. Its not like Hartline knows he'll have a 1000 yard season during negotiations anymore than Ireland does. You're both negotiating off the same information and you're both weighing the risk vs reward of future possibilities.

    With the benefit of hindsight I believe we should have extended Hartline at this time last year and I believe Hartline would have accepted an extension happily. If you don't believe either of those statements are true then we'll have to agree to disagree.

    Even without hindsight I would have extended Hartline, some would have hated it but most wouldn't have cared and at the end of the day I would have looked like a genius.
