    Name me an example other than Brandon Marshall and Vontae?

    Because both those moves are very defensible, and at the time they were made there were no suitable replacements, we tried Chad Johnson and he screwed up. Look they knew coming into this season we weren't going to win the Super Bowl this year, so he made some moves that benefited the team's chemistry, and armed us with more ammo this offseason to surround our now experienced QB.

    Uh DT is a banger, that's his thing.

    Do you watch the games?

    With all respect dude DT is far from a "banger" dude might be the softest player on the team maybe second to Egnew.

    Lamar Miller is silky smooth and picks his holes well. He's deceptively strong too with some pop. Regardless if Reggie comes back or not, I really want to see him get more touches in 2013.

    I would like to see him earn that job. I hope he can earn it.

    Being in SC. I have watched Lattimore since his days in high school. He is probably the finest back we have seen in SC for years. This was a very bad injury. If you saw it, when it happened, you would think he could never play again.
    Then in SC bowl game, he was walking the sidelines with no assistance. Hard to say, but if he comes back at 100%, he could be the steal of the draft. He is a baller.

    I like Reggie and think he is a very good player. I like him better in the passing game. (aka Post route TD in Buffalo game) He runs way to much east and west and he misses holes. He also looses yards on many plays. If he would take that first opening, he could really rack up some yards.
    I got so sick of watching him dance last season. This is football, not "Dancing with the Stars".

    No DT is NOT a banger but they are trying to use him like one. In college "even though he is a big back" he ran like a small back. His forte is find a open in the OL makes one cut and he is done. The Dolphins have attempted to make him into a runner he is not which is why it is failing. He ran for over 100 yards in his first 2 games as a rookie and has never run for as many yards since. He runs to high and is good for about one move and goes down to easlily for his size. The staff must have been convince because of his size they could coach him into a different typr of back than he was in college and its not working. They need to let him run at his natural style like he did in college, attempt to get him lower his pad level and throw more short passes out of the backfield. His real strenght IMO is proabably blocking and catching out of backfield. The traits that work best for Thomas also work for Bush so we need a different style back.

    Nope. Sorry but that is completely incorrect. He came back from that concussion without even the slightest hesitation hitting the holes and dropping his helmet when contact was imminent. I for one was very impressed and to me it looked like he got quicker. Not saying is is going to go Javorski on anyone, but he is not soft.

    Physically there is not a single thing that Bush can do that Miller can't do equally as well. Maybe even quicker........but he really needs to learn the plays. That is the thing that scares me about him. When he gets the ball more though I could see him doing some good things.
