When Death Smiles Upon You the Infantryman smiles back
WVdolphan "Ireland gets it.
And those who also get it, know that Ireland gets it. Those who are clueless are still concerned about cornfed and the running game"
WVDOLPHAN "The last thing this team should be worried about is the OC(offensive corn). When you add it all up, its really a pretty solid OC"
Everyone that thinks getting Wallace and Jennings would be "possible" fail to realize the other 31 teams in the NFL.
An example would be New England letting Welker and his $9.5 million contract this past season walk then take that
$9.5 million add to it a few more million and get a Wallace for Welker turnaround.
If Miami was offering $11 million + and New England was offering the same
I'm sorry but I'm going to Foxboro
It was a pleasure debating this with you. Big fan of your work, btw.
I think what the argument boils down to here is clearly dcnr226 thinks that Mike Wallace and Greg Jennings make sense as a pair of acquisitions from a football sense. He thinks they complement, that they'll be worth their asking price, etc. There's nothing wrong with that. He might be right. And maybe if Miami did that, and showed they're serious about making plays and paying to win some football games, you'll bring some fans back to the table...bring some genuine excitement back to the Dolphins.
But outside of that, it's not going to affect anything else. Not going to affect free agents.
ckparrothead mentioned futures odds in another thread. For reference purposes, when the Heat signed James and Bosh to align with Wade, the Heat's odds to win the NBA championship were immediately cut from 25/1 to below 2/1.
It was actually a greater change than that. The 25/1 was posted with some knowledge that the Heat might thrive in the free agent market. With Wade alone, it would have been tighter to 75/1.
If the Dolphins sign Jennings and Wallace, I suppose some joints would lower Miami from 50/1 to 40/1. Primarily due to sheer boredom, a determination to lower odds under any excuse, and the tendencies of casino managers to overreact.
Let's see, I'm trying to envision a gathering of Tannehill, Wallace and Jennings onstage, with lights and cameras and pronouncement of forthcoming titles...
