    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...
    equating signing Wallace and Jennings to Lebron is beyond silly. I mean would we be signing the best wr in the league with either guy. Now if we were talking Andre johnson or calvin Johnson maybe closer to it.
    Hell we had a guy better than either we traded him(Jennings or Wallace)

    I couldn't disagree more. I'd take Mike Wallace OR Greg Jennings over Brandon Marshall all day, every day. I understand that he might have mental illness, but we've all been around people who are cancers. You're at the pro bowl and you're talking about how nice it is to play with a "real" qb? Gtfo. Grow up.

    I can't make a tangible connection, but it seems both he and Cutler are coach killers. And they effectively "killed" Lovie Smith's tenure in Chicago.

    Of course Marshall sucks because he is not in Miami anymore lol. He is still a better wr than either of these guys even with the mythological stuff surrounding him. Marshall did nothing to get Smith fired but play his ass off . smith got fired because he did not deliever on expectations. Marshall exceeded expectations

    Also Im not a Marshall fan believe we should have never traded for him and Boldin was the better option always said that

    Nobody said Marshall sucks. I said i'm glad he's no longer on my team. For such an amazing talent, it's amazing how mediocre his teams end up being. We did more through the air without his talent then we did with him. Good riddance.

    And Jennings might not be the physical talent that Marshall is, but Mike Wallace is, and he's not a head case, which is a plus.

    we basically did the same in the air and thats with a more pass oriented philosophy. Its silly to think that with Marshall here in this offensive scheme that we would not have had a better year throwing the ball with three good options compared to two. A wide receiver does not guarantee a team wins. Reggie wayne is a helluva receiver but his presence did not keep Indy from going total tank last year. Calvin johnson is a monster and best receiver in the nfl and yet his team did squat. Jennings is not close to what he was and Wallace for all his hype was nothing special last year

    I'm really worried about both of these guys being damaged goods. Jennings turns 30 this year, got hurt during the season and has generally seen a diminished role in Green Bay's offense. Wallace had a frustrating year in Pittsburgh and if he's going to be a work ethic/character concern down the road, I don't think we're the organization that would be the best fit to turn him around. If Pittsburgh doesn't want to put up with his crap, that's a troubling sign.

    I'm opposed to most free agent splashes in general, but both of these scream dangerous.

    I'd love the idea even more with a pas catching TE in the likes of a 2nd round pick up of Tyler Eifert.
