    Did Ireland and his scouts fall asleep for a year? Geesh.
    he was 10 lbs lighter and ha more going for him in 2010...he was bloated and lacked suddenness in 2011 and when he showed up at 251 lbs in training camp to carry more weight probably to help him in line i knew he was in trouble...
    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"

    Philbin has been IFFY on some personnel moves, so it might be on him too. Ireland wanted to keep Gates, for instance -- in hindsight that would have been SMART, as most of the other WRs on the roster are simply possession WRs. Philbin cut Gates [instead of any of the other list of MEDIOCRE or TERRIBLE WRs like Lemmego Nanae] and Voila! the Phins were left without a legit deep threat and teams boxed in the Phins the last half of the year, and the redzone WR plays were non-existent -- all due to SLOW, MEDIOCRE talent at WR.

    Gates got picked up immediately by the Jets, and flashed some serious potential and field-stretching presence. Not keeping Gates and not cutting Egnew, Nanae, etc. [sooner] are all on Philbin, not Ireland.

    Philbin has choices with the roster NOW and so far some of those choices have been misguided to the max, where WR and TE are concerned.

    I would have like to see him play some. He made some nice catches in the preseason.

    Gates didn't show much of anything this season and also displayed durability issues. If anything, his first season in New York further convinced me the Dolphins didn't lose anything when they cut him. That's not a black mark on Ireland or Philbin.

    aside from the lack of fluidity and hips, the guy can not hold on to the ball. FUMBLE MACHINE. proof is out there. games are your resume and his says "I will fumble if you hit me."

    He couldn't even get good separation in the college level...
    He can't block
    He is not an elite athlete
    He has no power or explosiveness

    I really hated this pick. Basically we took a TE because we needed one and the Colts took Fleener and Allen.....leaving us with this guy, not because he was worth it.

    Fasano is better than Egnew.
