    posters usually have thread creation privileges until they prove they can't handle it, like in the case of the op.

    Same thing with a RB. You know there's an upgrade needed especially at power back, yet nothing setup with Ben Tate or Blount that we know of.

    Key words, it doesn't LOOK LIKE based on the limited information that I have to go by. I phrased it that way for a reason as I understand every bit of news doesn't leak out for various reasons but at the same time (as an aside) I fully expect the Dolphins to be the Dolphins and to stand pat with what they have at the skill positions.

    I hope that clarifies things.

    What makes you think the Dolphins aren't thinking of drafting a tight end? There's also a thread already here that says the Dolphins are looking to upgrade at running back. Perhaps you missed it.

    I certainly think that creating a thread should be relegated to people who are more respected and positive than anybody else. That's not to say that I would disagree with somebody posting something that one against the Dolphins because obviously they haven't been as good as we have one of them to be over the last 20 years. But when you have **** that was posted today and has been the last couple of weeks or months, that is when I certainly agree that it is a privilege to Postier and should be treated as such.

    Never said they weren't interested in drafting a tight end or a running back for that matter but considering our rookies last year played the fewest snaps collectively out of all teams' rookies I personally wouldn't put ALL of my eggs in that basket (also take a look at the last tight end Philbin preferred that we drafted) although I do believe teams should be fundamentally built through the draft and supplemented with free agent pickups.

    And I'm fully aware the team anticipates signing a running back. I didn't miss the blog post from Armando nor did I miss the thread here but at the same time, what if you wait too long and get outbid on the guy you really want?

    Other than Brandon Pettigrew I didn't really see a TE worth looking at...Graham would cost way too much as far as draft picks and J Finley hasnt been cleared medically yet unless I missed that..and to me personally none of the rbs that hit the market are all that great...I would have loved Byrd or Ward over Delmas but eh Grimes worked out last year on a similar deal so why not...I would like to see them bring in hakeem nicks to check out...

    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.

    It's weird to me on one hand you say Miami doesn't seem to be trying to improve the offense but then you say you never said they weren't interested in drafting a TE or RB. If you aren't sure of what their plans are for the draft or even the rest of free agency, how you can make the statement that they appear not to be trying to improve is lost upon me.

    Having one or the other contradicts your argument.
