    This is up there w the stupidest posts I've ever seen on this site. The whole post is bad and then ending with "omar was right" is like a stupidity exclamation point.

    lol, you know how many times this franchise has brought in big name free agents and done nothing in the season when it all matters. You don't know how to build a team.

    We signed a bunch of big name free agents last year and we didn't make the playoffs.

    2009 - Traded for Tony McDaniel; Signed Jake Grove, Gibril Wilson, Cameron Wake, Joe Berger, Ethan Kilmer, Eric Green - Result...no playoffs
    2010 - Traded for Brandon Marshall; Signed Karlos Dansby, Richie Incognito, Cory Procter, Montavious Stanley, Marques Douglas, Charles Grant, Bobby Carpenter, Clifton Smith - Result - no playoffs
    2011 - Traded for Reggie Bush; Signed Kevin Burnett, Jason Trusnik, Matt Moore, Ronald Fields, Marc Colombo, Jason Taylor, Kevin O'Connell, Ray Willis, David Nixon, K.J. Gerard, John Matthews, Marvin Mitchell, Larry Johnson, Gerald Alexander, Will Yeatman, Dante Rosario, Ryan Cook, Will Allen, Igor Oshansky, Nate Jones, Steve Slaton, Sage Rosenfels - Result...no playoffs
    2012 - Signed David Garrard, Chad Johnson, Richard Marshall - Results - no playoffs
    2013 - Signed Dustin Keller, Phillip Wheeler, Dannell Ellerbe, Mike Wallace, Brandon Gibson - Result - No playoffs

    What's worse is that most of these guys aren't even on the team anymore. Free agency should never be looked at as a way to build your roster. I don't know of too many teams that sign high priced free agents and win super bowls or even make the playoffs.

    I am not sure you quite understand what is going on.
    Last year they used Talib to cover TEs one-on-one. They had him on Charles Clay last year...don't see Revis being able to do that. He's not as big as Talib.

    For example, the Colts have Hilton, Wayne, Fleener, Dwayne Allen, and some other good complimentary receivers yet they are expressing interest in Hakeem Nicks. Meanwhile we appear to be standing pat with Clay, fast but undersized Wallace, Hartline and Gibson coming off knee injuries.

    I think that's the major point of frustration with some fans, especially considering the amount of money we have available. It does seem as if we're looking at some of the lesser unheralded free agents.

    I will say that I'm a firm believer in relying more upon draft picks and free agency picks so hopefully that's the Hickey/Philbin plan as well.


    Hilton is an undersized but fast guy, found in THE DRAFT. Reggie wayne is an aged reciever who just had knee surgery. Dwayne Allen has done what in the league? And they are "looking into" Hakeen Nicks. Looking into means what? They made a phone call? I'm sure we made quite a few phone calls...

    If we spend 100million on free agents, you guys complain that we are just throwing money at the problem... if not, we aren't doing enough to get better.

    This thread is stupid...

    im done
    This right here is what being a mediocre franchise is doing to us. Disagreement and accusations.

    All I was trying to do was find a point of agreement with the OP because I saw the point he was attempting to make, agreed with some of the premises of what he was trying to convey, and didn't want to continue to pile on him and then it's "you guys this and you guys that"

    I realize where Hilton was found, what injury Wayne is coming off of, and Allen's numbers. And did I not specify that I would build through the draft as well? All I said was that I'm indifferent at this point, partially because we haven't hit the draft yet and here come the attack dogs. Lighten up, it's JUST football.

    And forgive me for not being fully on board with everything this franchise does or doesn't do. I offer you my most sincere apologies.

    Fare thee well.

    I'm now at the decision this is a well done troll job. That's the only plausible explanation

    Every time I see a stupid post I remind myself we don't have this guy as a fan

    So, tell us, who would you sign to correct this? You do realize that you cannot force a player to play for Miami, right? This isn't fantasy league stuff. What receiver would you sign to 'counteract Revis?' Decker? You want Miami to pay him $7.5 per year like the Jets did? Get out your calculator, it doesn't work with the team's salary distribution. You make it sound so simple but you have no tangible suggestion on how it would be done.

    I think he has valid concerns.

    We're still short 3 starters on the OL. We still have a poor run defense. We still need a #2 and a #3 cornerback, unless you trust Will Davis and Jamar Taylor to suddenly become good, healthy players (I don't).

    We still have two wide receivers coming off of knee injuries. We still need a TE to complement Clay. I still have big concerns about our safeties. So, yeah, uhm, I don't understand why people are thrilled with what's going on here.

    Signing Grimes was a great first step. Signing Albert a left tackle was a necessary step. Now we have to address all of the other problems.
