Hope all is well and y'all have been doing great! Wow.. looks like there is very little traffic here anymore. I remember when this place used to be the hot spot for Phins discussion. Me personally, I think it's when the Mods got a little too tough and ran some of the interesting characters off.
Anywho, What's your thoughts on the Phins this year? RT17 looks to be solid. I think he's starting to really grow. The injury sucked for him because the playoff experience would have been tremendous for him. I actually think we beat the Steelers if he had played.
Ajayi and the Offensive skill position players are going to be a lot of fun to watch! Cant wait!
I pretty excited to see the Defense. We get the return of one of the best Defensive players in the league in Reshad Jones. Hes a beast. I like the upside of Xavien Howard. I am a really big fan of Charles Harris and Raekwon McMillan.
Front office still concerns me w/ their complacency. David Harris was out there for us to sign and we did not. Guess what the Pats did. All we heard from the Phins were 'he would take snaps away from the rookie', 'Koa Misi is coming back' from serious neck surgery and they want to see what he brings. Misi has never brought anything and what's wrong w/ a rooking earning his snaps? Pats have a smart and aggressive f/o that's not afraid to make the moves to improve that team. Ours like to tread water at times.
We did some good stuff this off season but the Harris to NE move has me irked today.
I have complained many times about our recent leaderships reluctance to make changes on the fly.
I have, a million times, used the example of Shula switching out David Woodley, who had played in the SuperBowl the prior year, for Dan Marino because if Marino was better, why not?
Certainly we finally got over Philbin, who would simply not play players except in the order on the chart or in case of injury, but I was not fully sold that there has been a complete conversion since Philbin has been gone. It's better but I say if the rookie is better, why wait.

Brady should give 3/4's of his salary (thats 75% because I know you have a hard time with simple stuff) to coach belichik and divide 20% of that with his teammates. I'll give him 5% for being the douche-bag he is.
Next year we get a roof and despite the shade.......a lot more sunshine blown up our asses!!!!

There has been times though that we have seen grimpses.....A little bit here and there...nothing much......And those times he has done really well.
I dont know why they dont keep doing it....They keep him in the pocket and its frustrating to see him wait til he gets sacked.
Maybe they are afraid of him getting hurt like last year.
They should let him loose . Whats going to happen is going to happen. Maybe he becomes a pro bowler like this.
Hey everybody, good to see a lot of you still around.
I'm still upset over the handling of Gillislee , he's a Patriot now-go figure. Well Ajayi's alright at least and I feel like I can finally breathe the air in Davie as that knucklehead Philpin is gone. Seems we still have a good core of receivers and a defense that is at least improving.
I wonder how the O-line will hold up this season and if Tannehill will take another step forward but the team overall does not seem to me like a playoff-caliber team quite yet. Maybe in the wins/loss column but on the field...we shall see.
