    I agree. I think it would've been good to add a receiver in the draft but we had more pressing issues such as pass rush, OL, corner, LB depth and a kicker. We now have 3 receivers who were their team's no.1 last season. Gibson and Hartline are very good options at 2 and 3. Wallace is gonna open everything up with his speed. People also forget Matthews who showed flashes last season. Although Binns did have drops he has the ability to get open and will improve his catching. We also have Keller, Clay and Egnew. Some people who wanted us to add 2/3 receivers clearly are unsure as to how many we can physically have on the field at once. We're also forgetting that there are months until the start of the season and i believe we may still add another guy there.

    And this is why I would have rather went with Eifert in the 1st and Armstead in the 2nd. We need another target in the endzone.

    Because year after year, from the Larry Shannons to the Jeff Fullers, those guys are young! Of course they're gonna end up being studs Gonzo. They're....they're...young! We have a very solid WR group! You obviously don't know football sir.

    And yet here you are. The guy goes after me personally rather than arguing against my points and I'm expected to respond with kind words and cuddly phrases? Or is it the fact that I don't get off on every single move the Phins make? If you are opposed to varying viewpoints, you're right, this might not be the right place for you. And yes, the mods have varying opinions too. I assure you that not all of them agree with my views of the team. In the end, we all want the same thing, a Phins championship; we just disagree on how to get there. But if somebody responds like he did instead of arguing against my points, he certainly doesn't deserve a thoughtful response; though I still gave him one, albeit with a little more salt included.

    I can't say I agree with the OP. I think VERY SOLID is a bit of an overstatement. Better than last year, yeah that I will say. Still not a strong WRing core IMO. Wallace goes down for any length of time and a case could be made that we are considerably worse than last year. The Bess cut was a head scratcher. If you want to upgrade the position, FINE, but then to just ignore that you cut (might as have been a cut) him and not replace him doesn't make sense. Even if you would have went out and got a Tyler Eifert so we had another weapon I could have understood it, but unless they are REALLY high on Mathews I don't understand the Bess move. I got the feeling from watching the body language of both Ireland and Philbin that it was something off the field. It was a subject they certainly didn't want a lot of questions asked about it.

    I think if you take off the aqua colored glasses you would have to rank our WRing core, as a whole, somewhere between 17-20 in the league. If you call that "very solid", then I guess we can agree.
    I heard it, plenty. I even heard such lunacy such as “you don't need a true #1 WR in a west coast scheme." With that said, I agree with you. I'm not pleased with the depth at all

    I still think we needed to give Roberto Wallace just one more year.

    Depth is definitely a concern. If Wallace goes down or doesn't live up to his great potential (which he never fully met in Pittsburgh), we're back to last year.

    We will probably replace Bess with one of these other undrafted guys. That's usually where slot WRs get picked.

    Matthews is my dark horse. He IMO will be the 3rd WR.



    SAMMY WATKINS IS THE BEST WR IN THE COUNTRY & FUTURE MIAMI DOLPHIN!

    Lol. Oh yes. I remember all the "you don't need a 1 in the wco". It's hilarious the depths people go and the rationale used to defend every single decision.

    It does get really old trying to explain to some people who simply do not want to understand that we signed Wallace as a number one, Hartline is our number two and Gibson is our slot WR.

    This is so simple to understand yet you say "we lost our slot WR and did nothing to replace him".

    What is Gibson's position? We upgraded every position and we still have people crying over not taking another WR in the draft.

    Ireland said tonight he's comfortable with what Miami has at the position. The Dolphins see upside in Rishard Matthews and Armon Binns, who will compete with the undrafted rookies and former practice squad members Jeff Fuller and Brian Tyms for the No. 4 and No. 5 receiver jobs. With Miami using a lot of two tight-end sets, the fourth receiver could end up playing less than last year (16.6 percent of offensive snaps last season for the No. 4 receiver).

    You're right we should trade for him. All he needs is a chance. He's with the Titans now and 6th on the depth chart. It's all politics though. Everyone knows the Titans coaching staff aren't big fans of Panamanians.
