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.
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.
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"
for the love of god get a real freaking mike already!!!
I used to know transition tags and all that stuff . Cant we tender Hartline or am I confused which i often am.
Like a first round tender like we did with Murtha last year ugh defend that friggin move lol
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...
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.
depends on the money as to how much of a "genius" you would have looked like...
