    He should've kept Gates. At least he can stretch the field. It was a mistake to cut him.

    PFF's 12th-best 3-4 end as a rookie and top 7 two additional years. He was a constant force against the run and a solid pass rusher from a position that typically doesn't produce in that department. That is not a mediocre pick. It's not flashy, but it was absolutely a good pick. If you think it was a bad pick, you don't know football.

    No.
    It's not a bad pick but it's not great. It's ok, third rounder for a mediocre player isn't bad. Yes.

    Langford consistently graded out as a good 3-4 end on a run defense that ranked in the NFL's top 10 three of the four years he was here. That is not a coincidence. I cannot help you if you're going to ignore reality.

    Kendall Langford is the typical Ireland and Parcells player, a big lumbering lineman that didn't embarrass himself on the field but never really made any plays of note.

    3-4 linemen (outside of the JJ Watts of the world) really don't "make big plays of note." It doesn't mean they don't have uses. Without them, you're linebackers can't do their jobs. Ask Patrick Willis how important Justin Smith is. You do not understand football and I can't spend more time trying to teach you.

    I don't need you to teach me how to be a Dolfan zombie. If Ireland thought Langford was any good he'd still be a Dolphin. Langford is just a guy. Replaceable.

    one could make an argument that 85% of any given roster could potentially be replacable...
