    How could a player that has done nothing in the NFL be a reason you couldn't get behind Gibson? Makes no sense. Did you or do you know that Matthews will be a dominant player? Do you know something I don't? Gibson allows Matthews to come along at a slower pace. He may not need it but, who knew that when Gibson was signed? No one did. If Matthews is the WR some think he can be, we have one of those good problems to have. Too many good WRs. Right now, Gibson is our #3 WR, not #4 and he earned his money with his play last year.

    Why?

    It is the best. Still offseason though.
    I'm saying that our WRs were abysmal last year and we only have one this year that is appreciably better than what we had last year with a couple of unknowns.

    So, you can't comprehend that by adding a player or players, this will make the players we already have a little better. Like having Wallace will open things up and make Hartline a better WR and Keller a better TE. Having both Keller and Wallace and Hartline for that matter, will make Ryan Tannehill a better QB. Our WRs were abysmal last year but, that's why we've added to them. And we a much better WR group today than we were last year. Our entire WR core looks to be a good one now. And that's with Hartline and Gibson.

    Gibson is learning a new position in a new system to him. Matthews has put in some time.

    that is what you are seeing right now. thats all. in time, it wont matter, we will have 5-6 WR's with two waiting for playing time, which they will get once injuries start happening.

    ive said before with Gibson we have brian hartline 2.0 if we want to go by GB's wr gameplan, all wrs have to be able to play all positions. I hope Matthews becomes a beast. but if Gibson can develop an inside game it makes him multifunctional. we're not gonna be 3 wr sets every play. we'll line Gibson up on the outside at times and have Wallace or hartline in the slot. every wr on roster is supposed to be able to run the "tree" if Matthews contributes than awesome! great diamond in the rough. Gibson is still young and has done more in the league than Matthews. has he hit his ceiling who knows, will Matthews reach his ceiling or can he hit it who knows. no team in the league has ever not signed a player and said ooops. and if we go into the season with a wr of gibsons "caliber" as our 4th WR cause a second year late round pick surplanted him I will have no issues with that. as long as he was supplanted by talent instead of lack of talent. let Gibson ride out the season then good bye. as much as it seems a lot of people hate him on here hes better than Armstrong, naanee or any other scrub in league.

    Not really. Now it's Mike Wallace and some other guys.

    Why?
    Because I was impressed with Matthews last year but he needed to develop. It usually takes WR's about 3 years to make the big breakthrough that their athletic talent suggests. Matthews impressed me in college, impressed me in the preseason last year and I was one of the earliest people stating how he looked better to me than Roberto Wallace, Marlon Moore, or any of the other guys vying for the last spot or two on the roster at WR. When he finally got into a few games, he definitely flashed potential. IMHO, Matthews may be able to back up Wallace at the X, and definitely can fill in at Y and Z. To me, Rishard Matthews just looks like he's going to become a better WR than Gibson in a year or so. It might even happen this year.

    Some people bitch when we don't have depth, and turn around and bitch again when we do. Last year we were scrambling to try and find a receiver, Anthony Armstrong, Jabbar Gaffney. Now, it looks like we have may have depth at the position without having to scramble in the event of an injury, and they bitching now..!!

    What ever The Dolphins pay these players is irrelevant from a fan stand point because it's not your money. The league has a revenue sharing system and place and they money has to be spent and since it's a passing league, why not sign someone like Gibson. A young emerging player, that just had he's best season, and has yet to reach his peak. Especially when the coach has been screaming about competition, competition. They actually brought in competition for the godam pro-bowl long snapper for Christ Sake!!

    Thank you. Pretty much my thoughts. From the preseason alone, he earned more of a shot than Naanee. I hope Matthews makes Gibson expendable sooner rather than later
