How many drops last year? 4? The route running is nonsense.
Wallace should be the guy from a football perspective. Shouldn't have a damn thing to do with selling tickets.
I think I'm starting to prefer Bowe over Jennings. Just to much of a risk with his injury history.
I agree, i would be 'ok' with jennings but im concerned about his injuries.
I'm not going to be surprised if the Dolphins brass is split over which WR to sign.
Philbin will prefer Jennings (unless there is major injury concern) from the good soldier/leadership standpoint - he's a guy he knows and trusts and those are the kinds of guys Philbin wants in the lockerroom. I could see Mike Sherman having a preference for Wallace, simply because he adds a dimension (blowing the top off defenses) that you don't get otherwise. As a playcaller, that's probably more enticing than a guy with good/great hands because it opens everything up. And if left to his own devices, I could see Ireland favoring Bowe above everyone else because he's more of the "prototype."
Should be interesting.
Florio reminds of nothing more than a used car salesmen, really can't stand him or anyone on his television show. But I sure hope he's right.
And when FOOTBALL people in the know, talk about his route running, it says buyer beware. It isn't just a few people here and there, its coming from different corners of the NFL. Add the whispers of his attitude problems, and Wallace may be another Holmes. The JETS are stuck w/ that mess, I don't wish MIA to travel that road.
But hey. You keep beating that drum.
Football people in the know? Please point me in the direction of someone other than Polian and a handful of Finheaven users. Armando had a article a few weeks ago where he did the research and talked to those inside Pittsburgh's orginization. I think I'd take their word on his "attitude problems" or lack there of over what your so called football people are saying.
The man held out because he was making peanuts. Don't see a problem at all with what he did.
The drum will continue to beaten until we make a decision on one of the big three in FA. Until then expect more of the same from me.
He is wrong. We will sign Jennings and draft a "speed" option in Round 2.
**If the Dolphins make the playoffs, this sig will become HIRE PHILWIN**
I think Wallace is 100 percent the man Ireland will target, and I also won't be suprised if he's the first free agent signing of the year in the entire NFL. I can remember how upset Ireland was on Hardknocks when talking to Gates and having to cut him because he was their "deep speed guy". I for one think Ireland is salivating at the mouth to get a proven young guy with even better speed and a much better all around talent that won't cost any picks. I also remember hearing an interview with Ireland with him saying something along the lines of "a big move happening at the start of the new league year that will excite Miami Dolphins fans". Could this be Wallace? I think so and wouldn't be suprised if the framework of a deal was already in place. Resign Hartline, Clemons, Starks, and Fasano and this leaves us with plenty of top picks and wouldn't be at all suprised to see us double down on corners in the first two rounds again.
