Hayden wasnt a big Philbin guy originally. So why should he have faith in his pet project? I say, dont bet against it. It has been done in the NFL a few times. He was given all season to do his remake and you know damn well he has been working hard at it. Then we will have the Bi-rep camp where he will get a lot of reps. And if he shines, he gets to prove his HC right, which means he may end up starting. It could be very well the reason why we hesitate on Winston and the money spent.
We are drafting a T one way or the other because we are looking for depth for years out. Somebody like Quessenberry. A guy who could be around til our first 5th rounder and who can slide into G as well.

When the Fins trade for Brandon Albert, trade up for Lane Johnson or sign Eric Winston, all the Yeatman posters can apologize to me.
It is totally reckless to protect your second year, possible franchise signal caller and all the new weapons you brought in by STARTING Will Yeatman on the edge. I have no problem with him as a continued project. I have no issue with him being giving ample PT in the preseason that maybe he could be elevated on game day to the swing guy. However, to think he should be penciled in as the starter is totally a stupid idea.
I laughed at this quote:
The main issue with a cornerback, is being a "liability" deep due to "lack of speed"? Isn't that a corner's bread and butter? Lol. What good is a corner if he can't cover deep because of something like speed, of which in un-teachable? I'm still laughing at that scouting report.If Miami waits until picks 42 or 54 for a cornerback, Pauline sees five possible options: Mississippi State’s Johnthan Banks (“problem is he’s a liability down the field, because of his lack of speed”
"Sometimes when I close my eyes, I can't see."
Phins will draft or sign a starting OT one way or the other.
