    Interesting that both Winston and McKinney have stated their preference is ti sign with Miami. Hope it get's done before the weekend. I'm sick of talking about the OL already.

    I believe that the team is all in for this year but, realistically targeting 2014 to be a legit contender, giving Philbin time to fit the pieces in place for his O.

    On the OL, Pouncey is perfect. Jerry or Lewis should fit nicely. Thomas or Samuda should be ready to take Cog's place. This gives us an athletic interior OL, and works for Philbin.

    At LT, a Long, Albert, Peters, Monroe, etc. are going to protect Tannehill's back for at least a few years; and McKinney for one. This allows a bigger, stronger, athletic Martin at RT for moving pockets, roll outs, and, Dare I Say, screens. Sounds like a pretty good idea.

    However, you have to look at other options if getting these players does not make sense, and cost too much. Martin and Winston is risky but, could be OK for a year. Not what coaches want but, Ya Can't Always Get What Ya Want.

    Experts say it takes at least a year or more to develop guys on the OL, and that is what Philbin is doing

    NO WAY we release these guys.. we release one of our two overpaid CBs before that. Odrick is very solid and Misi is fine.

    Let me remind you that even with Marino, the front office made a ton of bad moves during his era. In no way has Ireland done anything to make this team worse off or less competitve. give me your reasoning behind your statement that this off season hasn't been the most productive and beneficial to the team's return to success.

    We already have the money. Why would anyone even consider releasing Misi or Odrick?

    there was also no way we released dansby, burnett, let smith go, let long go, let bush go, etc. half of those were about money, the other about scheme and system fit. Odrick is average, with flashes of potential at times, but just because he does the Pee Wee dance, doesn't make him solid.

    Misi and Odrick? They don't make any money.
