    Insightful Dolphins Quote from Mike Tanier's Mock Draft

    http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/42347136

    Mike Tanier's mock draft discussion of the Dolphins contains an insightful quote:

    "Perhaps the Dolphins are stuck at .500 because they are always drafting to replace the outgoing players who kept them at .500."

    So far in free agency it appears that this is exactly what we are doing: resigning the same mediocre players who led us to a 7-9 record at higher salaries. We never improve ourselves -- we just keep staying the same.

    If this continues at least Ireland will be gone.

    I disagree... These past 2 drafts have been really good and I see this years draft as possibly being the best.


    We have some really young up and coming guys on the roster. I'm extremely optimistic this year
    2014 Mock Draft

    1. Zack Martin - OT/OG - Notre Dame
    2. Chris Borland - ILB - Wisconsin
    3. C.J. Fiedeorowicz - TE - Iowa
    4. Trai Turner - OG - LSU
    5. Brandon Thomas - OT/OG - Clemson
    6. Storm Johnson - RB - South Florida
    7. Calvin Barnett - DT - Oklahoma State

    Oh. So Randy Starks is a bum is what your saying. Same with a #2 WR in Hartline, and a solid backup QB in Matt Moore that mentors your young, potential franchise QB. Okay.

    I like getting Moore back but qb mentorship does not seem to be a big thing in todays NFL.
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    Exactly, Resigning Moore means Nothing. If Moore hits the Field we are assured another losing season. Rather go with Devlin. We need Playmakers/Winners. Not more Average Dudes.
    Agree with Quote above.

    How did any of those resignings make us better than we were last year? From a talent point of view at best they kept us the same while eating up a larger portion of the salary cap. The idea is to get better, not to continue being 7-9.

    No you're putting words in his mouth. All he is stating is that we were 7-9 last year, and looks like we're going to be keeping much of the same faces. So unless everyone ups their game markedly and the entire team improves all around from last year. We'll continue to be around and under .500 (like the past 4 seasons) and 7 out of the last 10 seasons (losing records).

    Not trash talking, just using logic.

    I'm a fan of Starks, he's a beast on the D-Line. I believe Hartline gets flack for not scoring a ton of TDs, when I know of 3-4 deep passes where B.H. got behind the secondary and T-Hill over threw him.

    Put Hartline against the #2 CBs consistently and have a #1 WR take the focus off him (plus another year with Tanny will only make them better) and you'll see a solid improvement.

    But the fact remains, you can't keep much of the same and expect huge/better results.

    Now IF/When we bring in guys like Wallace or Jennings, hopefully a TE or CB, and we fill needs in the draft, then we can say that this teams making the necessary moves in the right direction. But if we keep the same old same old, we can't expect a big jump.

    SpecialK, thanks for making my main point much better than I did.
