I agree with others on here that if you are going to shell out that much for a receiver, perhaps you go after Welker and then try to add a burner in the draft. This is not supposed to be a great year for receivers in the draft so at least one WR position will need to be addressed via free agency.

Perusing some of the Egnew draft scouting sites for last draft shows that several outlets had serious concerns regarding his NFL ability. This appears to be another example of Ireland arrogance in thinking he was smarter than everyone else. Really scary heading into a draft with so much potential to positively change the Fins and having little confidence in Ireland to do it right.

As I get older, I have less of an ability to hold a grudge or maybe it is that we sucked for so long and I am numb. Saban didn't work out and moved on. At least he realizes he isn't pro material and I have moved on also...

Armando It was the 1990 thinking by Parcells which got Long drafted number 1 in the first place...

Yesterday Wes Welker weighs 185 and is 2 inches shorter than Harvin...just saying...

DC, good point as I cannot name any. I agree line cohesiveness is important but build around Pouncy and Martin not Long.

Yesterday & Armando Harvin had only missed three games prior to his injury this season. He is 24 and had almost 1000 yards last year (2011). He is a great returner. Not sure why the negativity.

Pro Football talk reported last week that Percy Harvin will probably leave Minnesota. Anyone think this a playmaker that would interest Miami?

Long aside, regarding Moore I cannot see paying him top dollar to back up. The reality is that if you are playing a back qb you are already in trouble. Why not just elevate Devlin if you think he is worth it? Otherwise, what is the use of keeping a perenial 3rd qb? How much can you really love the guy if he is always third, never plays or gets the necessary reps to improve?

I think the scary part is that Ireleand has gotten us into decent position financially but has not demonstrated the ability to find the right talent to take advantage of the situation. It would e great if the Fins brought back Tom Heckert but Ross is not savvy enough to take advantage of this situation.

As has already been said, when you are drafting in that area, not much to be lost or gained by either losing or winning. Better to end on a positive note, even if it is a victory over New England who will be resting their starters. Besides, a good GM should be able to pick up decent talent at that spot and hopefully we have a good GM by then...

I agree with Mark in Toronto, Long's leverage is minimal but there are still owners who cannot help themselves and might offer him something higher than perceived value based on his history. I would hate to lose him because it is another hole to fill but I cannot see overpaying for him.

@mia73 - Welker was hardly underwhelming. He was an undrafted free agent who did so well initailly with Miami that they received a number 2 pick for him. In retrospect it was a steal for New England since Samson Satelle the guy drafted by Miami with that pick was quickly discarded by the incoming Tuna...

Yes Clue I agree on McFadden and said so earlier. What is there to lose? I laugh every time I see someone use the tired Belicheat moniker. Say what you want, but you have to respect BB's coaching abilities (he needed to cheat about as much as Lance Armstrong did). The guy is very good (although I cannot stand him) and turned a perennial losing franchise into a dynasty. Having said that, I hope they never win another super bowl...

I don't believe addition by subtraction is a way to build a winner, but in Davis's case, there was reason he did not go higher in the draft and that manifested itself during his time here in Miami. I think the number two makes it worth it...

I saw in the NY Times that Bryant McFadden is practicing in North Miami awaiting a contract. Given the desperation of our secondary, why not work him out? I still don't understand why we would not take a flyer on Kellen Winslow to give Tannehill another option. Maybe it is a character/attitude issue but I cannot see the harm. Just my two cents...

"Thomas needs to work toward being a better player because, so far, his fumbling has been a disappointment. He has two fumbles, which is bad because he has played in two games and one fumble per game is a ticket to the running back unemployment line." Armando, you have been harping on Thomas quite a bit in favor of Lamar Miller. Hurricane sentiments aside, does it not make more sense to have a better blocker with a rookie QB versus a marginally better runner? You have been harping on the 2 fumbles but Thomas was basically knocked out on the first fumble which is why he was out for the second game. I am not sure that this is as big an issue as you make it seem. Just my opinion.
