Dedicated fan since 1976.
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
