    To say that prejudice doesn't exist means you must live in a bubble, I remember when Ed mcafree from Denver was a wr and his own teammates said the same exact thing! He was underpaid because he was white!

    PlWell if I am picking I am first evaluating the talent in the top of the draft and free agency between the secondary and wide receiver positions. From what I have heard its wide receiver position in FA so that leaves secondary in the draft. Unless their is huge value pick in the first round I see Ireland goins with pass rusher to help Wake. Ireland tried to trade back into the first round for Perry out of USC last year. So I am guessing a top WR in FA, DE1st round, CB, OL 2nd round, TE/WR, CB, 3rd round LB,4th Safty, 5th RB, OL 6th, QB or K in the 7th. Resign Hartline, Fasano, Clemons maybe Bush and possibly Starks. Long and Smith want to much money. Bush is affordable and probably should be resigned but Bush, Miller and Thomas all run similar and we need a grinder back and keep trying to make bush and Miller something they are not as between the tackles runners. Starks is at a loaded position but at the right price you sign him and let McDaniels walk. This draft will be about rebuilding the secondary, adding a pass rusher, filling a hole on the OL and speed at the TE/ receiver position and hopefully find a grinder running back. I see a speed WR, TE and grinder back in FA.

    Unfortunately, I do think there's a lot of truth to this. Hartline is extremely sure handed, makes great catches, runs good routes, and is a very disciplined football player. He has good speed and quickness but isn't a burner; people fail to realize he's 6'2. He's not Welker at 5'9, yet probably runs just as fast. I don't know why he is so under-appreciated. If he had a #1 to take the attention away, he will eat your food IMO.

    1) No way to Hartline @ 7mil per season. No way

    2) Also, hell no to Sean Smith at 7 mil per season. He is allergic to INT's. No thank you. A #2 CB making 7mil per season? No. hell no.

    3) What Miami needs is DWAYNE BOWE. We need to get him. He is a free agent too. Forget Mike Wallace. GET DWAYNE BOWE, he was born here in MIAMI, bring him back home.


    In the draft, I would like to see

    1st round - Pass rushing Defensive End to pair on opposite side of Cameron Wake
    2nd round - Wide Receiver
    3rd round - Cornerback
    4th round - Another Cornerback or a Guard or Tackle
    5th round - Guard Tackle/ or Cornerback if not taken in 4th round
    6th round - Kicker, release Dan Carpenter and his $3mil per season. Dude makes too much money as a Kicker and he still misses FG's when we need him.

    I'm not sure Wallace is even the best reciever on his team. Antonio Brown may be better, although niether of them get in the endzone a whole lot. Wallace has speed to burn but also had very inconsistent hands, dropping numerous balls all year. Wallace is also looking to make more than Larry Fitzgerald which is what has caused the rift between the Steelers and himself at this time. I'ts not as if thne Steelers are'nt willing to pay it's players as is proved by the recent contract they recently signed Brown to. It seems as if they may feel he's overvaluing himself and I tend to have this same opionion.

Nice picture in your avatar btw, too bad only losers have pics like that in a football forum.
    You're the one who brought up skin color as a basis to make a ridiculous point. I dont think that way at all.

    Secondly, your petty attempt to deride me only serves to make you look even more foolish and ignorant that you've already shown. Nice work. Your avatar clearly shows youneed to listen to better music, too.

    ima raise my hand and take some BS here but carp will be on team next year unless he has a horrible training camp, preseason. at best we will bring in an UDFA to give him competition in camp. i dont see us taking a dead money cap hit that high on a K when really we're only gonna find a replacement that is equal to him unless we draft the best kicker avail. he missed the 3 big ones in 2 games, that wouldve gotten us into playoffs. at the same time the rest of the season he went 22-24 on FG's, 26-26 xp, 12-12 inside of 40. we're not gonna resign kaeding, if carp makes team and sucks and then we decide to cut him, trust me, kaeding will prob be available in week 7-8 or whenever we might look for his replacement.

    signing two top wr's would be just crazy, resign hartline if cheap enough. think think about what priority you want as your 1 and 4......think hartline and bess are 2-3. as much as we need the speed demon i still think we look for a toptier route runner....ala jennings. so the three i always hear are jennings, wallace, bowe.....prioritize what order you want between, route runner, speed demon, big bodied physical.. i think we already have two route runners in hartline and bess, but if you look at bess, jennings, nelson, jones, are all route runners with cobb being the speed. so whichever ireland thinks is the highest priority, you pick that guy up in FA. the other two brands of reciever, speed demon, big bodied...you draft in that order. if speed is the next priority you draft one with one of are top 3 picks and the big bodied in 6-7th. or vice versa. our higher draft pick wr, can get snaps while playing along with the FA, Hartline, Bess. the late one can hopefully be stashed on PS if he's developmental...or heck maybe he pans out.

    i would like for a few players to restructure but we cant just cut salaries to get them off our team, we look good for this offseason, there is no reason for us to put ourselves in cap hell.

    this wasnt a bad team we fielded this year. are we the patriots NO, are we the chiefs NO.... bring back as many of the UFA's possible as long as they sign contracts that we offer and not to overpay. most of the RFA's for this offseason arent gonna kill the team to lose. i would hate to lose long, but not over pay, think he does have some leadership, same with bush. do you really want to let the first man in and last man out just walk without giving an above fair offer.

    oh well its time to drink some more so im hopping off, maybe thats why im saying carp wont be gone and that we need to bring back most of our UFA's.

    on 2nd thought whil i was outside smoking and i dont feel like deleting, im pretty sure long is gone, he isnt the mobile lineman we need, but at the same time if we allow him to just walk some of you fans will have to get over the fact that instead of a playmaker we may draft a lineman with one of our top 82 picks... i think cogs and jerry stay for another year, think both FA's after 2013, just so we dont have the dead weight and they are both serviceable. another offseason in the marine bootcamp of the OL coach and i think it may help with boths conditioning. he worked miracles on jerry.

    but ta for now, have a great night, im drinking a beer for everyone online

    Lol no I think you've probably been derided a bit too much, just simply stating the obvious. Besides it's not a ridiculous point, just cause you don't think a certain way it doesn't mean others think like you and to insult someone by calling them an idiot over a football topic is the lowest form of human scum. And Really thats the best shot you got? We all know Cudi's music is a work of art.
