When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.
Couple things are true here, and I think we can all agree...
1- the cornerback market will be overvalued based on UFAs. Draft is the way to go for DBs, bang for buck isn't there in free agency
2- If there is one area Ireland struggles drafting, it's offensive playmakers. Lets bring in proven guys that allow him to draft his strength...defense.
That's why I've advocated signing 2 receivers and drafting Eifert. Offense will instantly take off, and we wouldn't have to deal with the learning curve for a rookie WR. Draft a DE or trade up for Milliner. Win the Superbowl next year in the home of the Jets B-)
no idea on the cb market in 2013...most the high end young guys will never hit the market anyways...i don't think smith should be tagged but in the event it does happen it buys you time as in another year to take your raw rookie you draft this year and get him up to speed and is smith sucks you can lose him next offseason...i know one thing i'm more worried about having sean smith in my starting secondary the next 5 years than i am say one more year...if he improves you can always make a decision on him after the season...
but miami better invest in some corners with high picks asap...
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
This caught my eye from the article.
"The Jets know corner Darrelle Revis isn't playing for just $6 million this season and will be trying to trade him, sources said"
Interesting if true...
Darrius Heyward-Bey from Oakland is intriguing. The guy is just starting to show the ability he was drafted for and I think he's matured past the 'project' stage to be an actual NFL WR that still possesses a ton of speed. He could provide much of what Mike Wallace does for a MUCH cheaper price tag.
Bey averages 500 yards a season. We already have that guy.....We need productive NFL recievers. Wallace and an early pick.
I just don't see Wallace being a good fit here with this current team, he is a deep threat, a one trick speed pony of sorts. We need a guy who can do it all consistently like Jennings, I don't think Bowe has the makeup this team wants so that defaults me to Jennings.
There are still plenty of cuts coming from teams who need to get under the cap maybe some other WR's will be options soon to go along with Jennings and the other two big named free agents.
Born to fight. Trained to kill. Ready to die, but never will.
i don't agree with the mike wallace is a one trick pony stuff...i used to til i started really paying attention to his game and the routes he runs...and the way he was used to do different things in pittsburgh...
