    Bumphis has scored TD's ....... IN COLLEGE.

    Davone Bess had 41 TD's in 3 seasons at the University of Hawaii. Doesn't mean it translates exactly over to the pros.

    kind of funny as usual how people have backed off praise of Bess. At one time he was equal to welker now is he lesser than Gibson which means Gibson is better than Welker.
    yea right lol

    Hartline : Solid n2 and can play the slot
    Gibson : could be a very good surprise and will be solid if not more
    Matthews : our new moving chain WR, very good hand and bold WR
    Binns : with one year in our system he will become our Tall WR target in Red Zone at 6.3 210lbs.

    Opinions
    I'm not convinced. Wallace is a big play guy but isn't going to haul in 85 catches etc. Hartline will do what he's always done - be solid. The rest of these guys suck eggs. They are all slow. I would have preferred we kept Bess to Binns - Binn's easy TD drop and another drop on a crucial 3rd or 4th and long were enough for me to write him off. The WR position is still not a "strength" of this team.

    ROFL, you can read but still have a problem understanding. Read that post again. ROFL I laughed so hard at this, lol, you went spent time and searched for this thread and did not understand it, ahhh, good times....

    Read it clearly and you will see that I'm saying that we are passing MORE then any other team. MORE often. When I write "top passing team" it means that we are one of the top teams in the amount of times we are trying pass attempts.

    No where do I say that we have a great passing attack or do I say I love our WRs. No where, lol.

    The point I'm making is clearly that we are passing too often during preseason, lol. This was the last preseason game and I was commenting how few times in our preseason games we have run the ball compared to how many times we thrown the ball.

    Thanks for the joke, Joke.

    Here is that post for you:

    "Now that we have a starting QB, it is time to run the ball

    Yes, stats can lie. We are right now one of the top passing teams in the NFL. The simple reason for this is as I've been saying, we have been looking for a QB and WRs so we are passing almost all the time.

    For example, we have attempted 108 passes in two games compared to only 58 pass attempts from the teams we have played.

    We have only attempted 40 rushing plays compared to 232 rushing plays from the teams we have played.

    Do not make the mistake of thinking that we passed more because we were behind in the score. We came out passing and the coaches care a lot more about running the plays and using the players they want instead of caring what the score is.

    We need at least two of the other guys like Gibson and Mathews to step up. Some of the free agents look promising also.

    Last year we were terrible at WR. What 6 TD catches for the lot ?
    This year we should be better. How much better probably depends on our quarterback mostly.
    IMO, it depends more on the QB then the WRs. Coming into his second season and the first where he will be taking the starting reps in training camp etc, we all hope and expect for Tannehill to be better this season.

    If you look over last season's games, we did not throw into the end zone very often. Few WRs break off several 30-40 yard TD catches and runs per season. To score more from passing, you have to attempt to throw more TD passes.

    I figured your first response would be "you went and spent time looking for this." Took all of 5 seconds with the handy dandy search feature. Took you much longer to come up with the spin.

    I'm rarely wrong, but when I am, I freely admit it (Ireland, for example). You on the other hand...off the top of my head, Daniel Thomas, Gates, and Fasano. Ready to admit your error regarding all three? On top of your error regarding our WRs and passing game, of course.
