    But Fasano is solid! He can block!
    Fasano is the worst player of our offense and that's saying something considering the holes we got on our offensive line.

It might be fine ... but it does concern me.
    i do think the "Miami is a pit of temptation" angle is a bit exaggerated (when you're young, rich, famous and fun-lovin, EVERYWHERE is a pit of temptation, even Cleveland). But I share your concern.

Just about all of those routes and minor separation throws that Finley provided in that highlight film could be done as well or better by Tyler Eifert, who I believe is far less explosive and has far less deep speed. What Eifert does have is length and natural hands, which were the basis of most of those throws that Finley caught on that highlight video. I didn't see the type of deep throws that the Chargers throw to Gates or the 49'ers throw to Vernon Davis.
    I noticed the same. Not the contrast with Eifert part (valid point), but the conservative way he seems to be targeted. Is that down to Finley or GB? Philbin will at least have the answer to that one.

    I have yet to meet, or hear from a Packer fan who is in favor of Finley staying. He is unpopular there for a reason.

    I'd rely on Coach PHILBIN's judgment on virtually all of this. That being said...

    (1) I'd make WALLACE a BIGTIME priority. Unless MIAMI gets an NFL-ready deep threat WR, it's going to face at least a tightened up "D", and probably "8-In-The-Box" very, VERY, often: simply because MIAMI would be unable to PUNISH opponents who did so!! And it'll be bye-bye running game (which should be a strength) and short-to-intermediate passing game...AGAIN! That is to say, "deja vu all over again"! Once our opponents figured out that we had no true deep threat other than maybe BUSH, things went down fairly quickly, in terms of the "O". Drafting a "college boy" risks (a) a bust; and (b) waiting for him to adapt to the NFL game. Well, I'm sick of waiting! MIAMI can do some real good in F/A for a change. So, why not do it?

    (2) A TE with a CASE OF "THE DROPSIES" is NOT a good idea AT ALL. I don't give a hoot WHAT his upside is. This year's Draft has at least 2 topshelf TEs, and there are a number of very, very good NFL TEs available in F/A, including a very good one on a hated Division Rival (that individual would be who I'd go after). But just GET ONE who doesn't have a case of "the dropsies"!

    We know why the Packers are letting Jennings walk. He's a free agent, wants a good final contract to finish his career on and the Packers are stacked at WR anyway. You have to ask yourself why the Packers would CUT a player as young as Finley. Think about it.

    That's fair.

    Naturally I end up thinking it's because the relationship between Aaron Rodgers and Jermichael Finley is beyond repair. But that could be a very rationalized explanation that seeks to explain the problem in such a way that the Dolphins could still find value in him.
