It hasn't been cool in Miami but for Miami standards, these last couple of day shave been super mild and rather dry. I even worked out yesterday and I am old (50's) and it was pleasant. Too many red flags. Stay away from him.

A Realist, I had Benjamin on one of my mock drafts back in January (one of my first mocks which are posted on a different site of course) but our needs on OL given the fact we only signed Albert and Shelley from F/A are so huge I have decided to settle for Brandon Coleman from Rudgers in the 4th round(6'6" with great hands). Take a look and see if you like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zhPTLZ3Tdc&feature=share&list=PLa7u-FW_Nk5zBsMam8p2xWTk7D3h7_ngn&index=25

I agree with you tiredfinfan. OL, OL and then some more OL, but unfortunately, it looks like the only real talent left worth the price, is in the draft. I'm not as crazy as most about Zach Martin. I'm liking Mewhort, JaWuan James, or even Morgan Moses should he drop to the 2nd... I almost prefer to trade down and get 2 OL in the 2nd should we find a trading partner.

I agree that Fox offers, at best, depth at that position and a name to for the time being at least, fill the roster spot which for now is vacant... scary. I also agree that fans have to take a deep breath and stop calling for the exciting flashy positions to be filled during the draft like WR in the 1st 2 or 3 rounds... oh how exciting (I'm being sarcastic)... we have plenty of receivers while we lack a complete OL, however, taller receivers are in and ours are not the tallest, so I suggest a mid round possible pick with Brandon Coleman from Rudgers. Not blazing speed but at 6'6" speed isn't all that important... point is, he will have to be double covered because of his good hands and height, which is something that didn't happen this year because teams lost respect for our passing game, since the best defense for our passing game was a quick QB rush given our OL problems.

When I first read the tweet with just the Ross quote's 1 sentence, I said to myself, here we go again... last year all over again, but now that I read the rest of his comment, I'm not as worried, still worried, but not as. as long as the Dolphins have a plan, and it prioritizes OL first, and again, and then focuses on secondary (we're not totally set on Grimes opposite side IMO), then I'm OK.

IF and I capitalize the entire word for emphasis, Miami goes OL with the first two draft picks and quickly concentrates on the secondary (DB/S), thenall is OK. There may be a plan to just supplement absolute dire needs and rebuild the OL squad from the draft... I would be on board with that. I am however perhaps traumatized by inane move of the recent past, when nothing made a lot of sense, and they go BPA (best player available), then I know I, and other fans might be in for a long season. I should be more trusting of the new administration but taking into consideration mistakes of the recent past, please don't blame me for being skeptical.

Why? IS this going to be the first stupid move? Is hickey trying to do it for Coyle who I don't completely trust yet? We should be going aggressively after Zach Strief... plenty CB's from the draft. I obviously do not like this idea

Have the conditions in the "conditional clause" been revealed?

Let Coyle have the players he needs to fit into his defensive scheme, if that includes Soliai, then Coyle is the problem, if he chooses to let Soliai walk, then I have to wonder why was it that Soliai was re-signed last year if Coyle already knew Soliai wasn't as good a fit in the 4-3 as he was in the 3-4... maybe Ireland just dismissed Coyle's wishes and resigned him. I don't know, I wasn't that fly on the wall, but my patience is running out on Coyle. The Dolphins MUST keep Grimes!!!

BTW: We need to go OL in the first and 2nd rds maybe again in the 4th and 5th... we can get a more than decent DB in Jean-Baptiste in the 4th round. I also like Brandon Coleman in the 4th because he is very tall (6'6") and has huge hands, his speed is adequate for his size. Coleman would draw more than single coverage and take pressure of the line.

We need to move on from Patterson, not because of his salary BUT because of his durability. Carroll needs to be cut. Now, this is a real good and deep draft. so keeping in mind we need immediate contribution from our draftees and that we need almost half the OL, I propose a Miami product by way of Nebraska... Stanley Jean-Baptiste. Look at tape on this kid and get back to me.

The fact that Philbin, at least publically defended Sherman is questionable, BUT if it was a show of support to salvage his pre-existing relationship with his friend while behind the scenes, Sherman's future had been decided already, I could then understand... presidents do it all the time why not a coach. The feud with Ireland I can totally understand... What did this guy do worth anything in 4 years except sign some controversial players while advertising he wanted the opposite in clean, moral and focused athletes? Who went for a luxury pick last year, who may not even start this year, even when some of us knew J. Martin was NOT the answer at LT? Ireland was, and the fact Philbin had an issue with Ireland is the one hope we have that maybe the current HC isn't as bad as we think. Other than that, everything else I agree with you on.
