Like finding good slot receivers like Bess is easy. lol psshh some of you fans really shock me with disdain over the good players we got just because they're not Randy Moss. Anyhow I do agree we need to add to our receiving core. I say get Mike Wallace in the FA, there's your over the top explosive guy, then draft Robert Woods in the 2nd who fits our system perfectly. Keep Hartline and Bess and we'll be set.

Top 5 most annoying types of NFL fans
Well, well, well, another NFL season is in the books which means it is now a time for reflection. But Iím not talking about reflecting on your teamís performance, their chances in 2013, or anything of that ilk. Iím talking about discussing a more interesting, incendiary, and pervasive topic Ė NFL fans. Thatís right, itís time to turn your hyper-critical eyes onto yourselves for a few moments. In preparation for the postseason, I present you a list of the five most annoying types of NFL fans you probably encountered this season. Keep in mind, this is not an indictment of any specific teamís fan base, but rather certain types of fans that populate every stadium, bar, and Buffalo Wild Wings from sea to shining sea. Here we go.
5) The Bandwagon jumper
Few things are as obnoxious as a fan of one team jumping ship to root passionately for another team either during the season, or in the playoffs. Thankfully, the NFL has fans devoted enough to their franchises that this typically doesnít happen, but when it does, itís revolting. Speaking of bandwagons, if your team is already out and you are looking for a cozy bandwagon to board, we will be putting together a handy guide to help your wayward fandom find a home. Even though it pains us to do so. Check back in with the Sidelines Blog later this week for the guide. Or just suck it up, enjoy the playoffs, and cheer for your team next year. Your call.
4) The Know-it-all stats maven
This is the fan thatís wonderful to have around when heís backing up your arguments, but more obnoxious than the unrelenting Tim Tebow coverage when heís correcting your arguments. He lurks quietly in the darkness at bars or in stands, waiting for his chance to strike and one-up unsuspecting fans with his prodigious depth of useless knowledge.
3) The ďChampionshipsĒ argument fan
You know this guy. Everyone does. Heck, Iíll even admit to pulling out this lame argument at points when Iím smarting over my teamsí loss. This is the guy who win or lose, always reverts back to his teamís Super Bowl or championship record as the end all be all for ANY argument. Like when the Steelers lost to the Cowboys, or the Packers to the 49ers. Sure, winning titles is the reason everyone plays the game, but donít be a tool and have that be your sole argument for everything. Unless youíre a Bills or Vikings fans and use the reverse-Championships argument for sympathy and support. Thatís granted, you poor, suffering souls.
2) The doesnít know anything die-hard
These fans can typically be found screaming in the direction of the TV or field at the top of their lungs, likely spewing obscenities at a faster rate than Christian Bale on the set of Terminator Salvation. Yet, when you get this supposed die-hard one-on-one, they know next to nothing about their team outside of the marquee players and maybe the head coach. If youíre looking for an honest, intelligent discussion about football, this is the fan to avoid. If youíre looking for a fist-fight on the other handÖ
1) The Eternal Pessimist/Optimist
These sad sacks are about as annoying as fans come, regardless of which side of the emotional spectrum they fall on. Whether theyíre cursing every incompletion as the straw that broke their teamsí back, or telling you just how many touchdowns, two point conversions, and onside kicks their team needs to comeback, these fans take the cake. Making matters worse is the fact that these fans keep the same sad demeanor year in and year out, blindly believing this is their year, or bemoaning their impending playoff loss because their quarterback performed poorly in preseason.
The aspect about Flacco that I like is the touch he puts on his intermediate throws. He can drop the ball into tight spots as well as anyone. Tannehill has made a few of those throws too, but as of now Flacco is the better passer.
But watching the SF game, I would rather have a QB who can carry the ball. The QB is basically not covered when there are enough weapons for the defense to account for.
Hopefully Tannehill can use his athletic ability in the same manner once the DOPEY BALL BOY finally drafts some play maker receivers.

We need WRs, a Tight End with speed and a couple of o-linemen. This isn't to mention needing passrushers and a better secondary
Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.
I was a big Torrey Smith fan in the draft, so I'm not surprised by his success. However, one thing that stands out to me is how good the Oline of the teams still playing are. FH loves to bitch about us taking oline early, but look at the teams today. San Francisco alone has three 1st rounders on their Oline. Those guys are downright amazing. We need to get better play in the trenches or it won't matter if Mike Wallace, Greg Jennings and Dwayne Bowe all sign with us next year.
after watching these games i realize we have NO shot vs any of these teams until we get some corner backs and a serious SERIOUS free safety/centerfielder.
and on the flacco subject, he's never been my cup of tea. just a big tall dude that connects on a few deep balls a game. nothing exciting to me about his game. bland player and not a leader.
