Did we lose becuase of Long? No.
Did we lose because of Davis or Smith? No.
DId we lose because of Hartline? No.
I can keep going but you get the point.
WE lost because we lacked depth behind them or infront of them and had them playing above the order they should be in. WHen we had Davis and smith our CB core was good but our nickel back was the main issue and isntead of fixing that we replaced Davis instead of FIXING a broken piece.
FS was an issue and we NEVER fixed it. LT isn't wy we lost, we lost because our LG and RG were pathetic along with our RT. Notice we didn't fix those, all we did is create a new hole. Now isntead of having a #1 #2 and #3 CB for a few years we literally don't have a 1, 2, or a 3 now. Instead of keeping Long and upgrading our RG and LG we are now creating another hole with LT.
Instead of fixing our WR mess to give Marshall help on the other side we traded him which created the same hole as before, and now we are losing Hartline which opens ANOTHER hole.
Don't you see the reason we have so much $ and picks is because we traded away or lost players instead of ADDING to them.
Is SF/Balt good because they have 1 good WR, 1 good CB, 1 good LT, 1 good S? No, because they have multiple players that are good in the same department. Miami lacks that in EVERY SINGLE DEPARTMENT except on the D. Line. That is the ONLY position where we can get away with for a year by adding 1 player only.
