The Dolphins signed one free agent last year to a multi year deal and he ended up in the starting lineup in week one. I am not going to compare past free agents signings like Hicks and Guyton to what is likely going to happen this offseason. Ireland's draft last year looks very good on paper at this point and the early returns were successful(of course some fans will immediately point to Egnew while ignoring the rest of the draft).

    This is going to be a very exciting offseason for the Dolphins, I can't wait. Go Dolphins!
    You should have a look to see how many "stop gap" free agents the two superbowl teams had on their roster, I believe it was close to 30. This idea you have that 1 year "stop gap" contracts shouldn't count towards a GM's record is ludicrous.

    No problem with what he says at all. If its my a$$ on the line I'm going to do what I feel is best for the team. I'm sure most if not all of you would do the same thing if it was your a$$.

    Hmm well this is the first class that needs to be resigned, and tbh nobody's been worth resigning.

    Which is another problem. If Long, Hartline, and Clemmons walk, 2008 and 2009 are all off the team.

    I wouldn't expect all of them to walk. Clemons will likely be back and Hartline is probably more than 50% likely to be back.

    Fun fact: The Patriots had 28 draft picks between 2007 and 2009 and only one was re-signed.

    Another Fun fact: Patriots havent won a Superbowl since they beat the Eagles.

    When Donovan McNabb was quarterback. Before they got caught spying on other teams. Before Matt Cassel was drafted. The last time they won the Superbowl, Miami had Dave Wannstedt as a coach.

    Even through all of that, the Patriots have still had more success than Miami. Im not sure if your advocating us failing like them or using their failures as a measuring stone, but i would perfer us doing better than the Patriots. After all, two wrongs dont make a right.

    Thus is the problem.

    We need to draft better.

    Well, when we start winning the AFC every year instead of having four straight losing seasons we can start doing things like the Patriots.

    Clemmons will be back but he really shouldn't. We could easily upgrade there.
