    If they want to bring the fan base back they're going to have to win, that's the only way. If Mike Wallace is just a guy in our offense and we pay him his $11 million a season that he wants how angry is the fan base going to be? Will it by like when we signed Jake Grove, Justin Smiley or Gabril Wilson...everyone thought those guys were the answer to our problems at their respective position.

    I can tell you this. If the Dolphins continue to make decisions (and they have in the past) of signing big name free agents in an effort to sell tickets and raise expectations and fail to meet those expectations we will continue to wallow in mediocrity. Football decisions should NEVER be based on selling tickets, only on winning football games. We start winning games and people won't care what big name free agent we signed or didn't sign.
    I agree with you. I'm not a huge Ireland fan but I didn't see anyone he could have signed or brought in last year in FA to help at WR that would have been worth it. We should get something we don't have already if we spend money on a FA WR. Wallace has speed - the others (Jennings and Bowe) really don't. I wouldn't be against getting Jennings and Bowe but they are both older, not as fast, and in Jennings' case has an injury problem for the last two years. Not guys I would spend top dollar for. If we spend we should get value or we'll end up like the Jets.

    Mike Wallace would be awesome... He's more of a one trick stallion than a one trick pony. His deep speed is elite (if not the best in the game) and he should be paid accordingly. Originally, I was more for Jennings, but I love Wallace's age and his ability to separate from defenders with pure speed. If he can learn some more diverse routes he could become a great fit for our offense.

    If you get Wallace, Hartline is gone. We'd certainly bring in another FA WR and draft a WR in the 2nd...However I don't see it happening. It'll be Jennings, Hartline, a 2nd rounder and Bess. With TE Bennet/Keller/ Finley with Fasano or Eifert or Reed from Florida

    You can't go wrong with either one, IMO...both go-to number one receivers this offense sorely needs. Wallace has the speed and big play ability. Jennings brings you reliability and familiarity with the system. Each guy has their strengths (and weaknesses) no doubt, but clearly upgrades. If we could also upgrade at TE, our offense could finally shine. Let's give Tannehill all the weapons he needs to be successful and turn this ship around.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

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.
    You may be right but don't underestimate Joe Philbin's ability to lobby for Jennings. He is the obvious choice and he's high character and available.

    Florio wants to be seen as right. Let's face it, predicting Jennings to Miami gets nobody any credit because it's too obvious. If Jennings goes to Miami, many people will say "they shoulda gotten Wallace like Florio said". If Wallace goes to Miami they'll say "Florio was one of the few people to call Wallace to Miami ... he's smart."

    It's a no-lose prediction, the type of splash that Florio wants, and it sets up the Dolphins to look foolish if they don't. It doesn't surprise me he predicts it. Notice how he doesn't specify how much he's worth or what would be overpaying, or whether signing Jennings for less is a good deal? No, he wants credit right or wrong.

    I agree with everything you said except for Clemons. I'm not against resigning Clemons per se, but there's talk up here the Giants may cut Antrel Rolle because he's making too much money. If Rolle is available, we need to go after him I think. Rolle and Jones would be a pretty nice looking deep secondary.

    Would be sexy BUT Tannehill would have no time and our defense would give up so many points.

    Clemons

    Wallace, Finley, Cox, Tackle that would fit the west coast...

    Draft-
    1-Patterson WR
    2-Trufant/Banks if they fall (Could be unlikely) If not there take Poyer CB
    2-Warford OG
    3-Carradine DE
    3-Bailey WR
    4-Lemonier DE
    5-Mathieu or McFadden CB

    That would be insane
