Thread: Dolphins are the Best Team in the AFC East

  1. #41
    They got lucky on a few games last year and still didn't have a winning record you have to be kidding me. Last year they where favorites to finish dead last now they are better then the Bills maybe. Long, Bush, Fasano, Gardner, Smith, Dansby, Burnett, and Kaeding are all FAs right now. Yeah they are active in FA right now. They need to be they lost a ton of quality players and didn't have a bunch to start with.

To compare him to Tanny is an insult. The reason you guys are in cap hell is because Tanny took a shot at a superbowl and missed. It's not like this year is superbowl or bust for the dolphins. They are just filling in pieces. The main core of our players still come from the draft.

    The reason you guys are in cap hell (even tho that's exagerated and is only for 1 year) is because you have a bunch of huge contracts that you can't get out of. Any big contract we have (which again is only 1 player) we can get out of if they underperform.

    So again, please explain how we are going to be in cap hell, or just admit that that is homer talk.

    Dolphins keeping cap numbers on new contracts very low in 2013

    Dolphins G.M. Jeff Ireland is going all in.

    Specifically, he’s signing players to contracts that use minimal cap space in 2013, with the obvious goal of getting as many impact players as possible on the field this year, in the hopes of turning the team’s fortunes around.

    From receiver Brian Hartline ($2.15 million of a five-year, $30.775 million deal) to quarterback Matt Moore ($2.5 million of a two-year, $8 million deal) to receiver Mike Wallace ($3.25 million of a five-year, $60 million deal) to linebacker Dannell Ellerbe ($2.425 million of a five-year, $35 million deal) to linebacker Phillip Wheeler ($2.4 million of a five-year, $26 million deal), those five contracts account for a total of only $12.725 million in 2013 cap space.

    Next year, with Hartline’s number going to $6.2 million, Moore’s moving to $5.5 million, Wallace’s skyrocketing to $17.75 million, Ellerbe’s inflating to $7.425 million, and Wheeler’s growing to $6.4 million, the combined cap numbers for the same five players become $43.275 million.

    So, basically, the Dolphins won’t be spending quite as freely next year. Depending on the rest of the contracts that are on the books for 2014, they could be hustling to clear cap space.


    Seems like Ireland is like a player in a contract year, shooting his wad for 2013. This is why I think they'll be paying later.

    Do you consider the Jets to be in a better position than the Bills?

    It's the Bills so everyone should. They just let their best OL walk AGAIN. Overpaying for D again and not really improving year in and year out. That team just has a looser mentality from day one. Or from week one where Sanchez blows them out of the water anyway.

Bills are as inept as ever.


    Meanwhile the Dolphins have given an up and coming QB (Tannhill) an excellent WR, a pretty good receiving TE, and their defensive front 7 is very good and the best in the division.
    Just signed another WR, they are definitely on their way up and we have to find a way to bring it more DB's not less.

    Right this moment, but Tannenhill is for real, and they were smart enough to keep the Moore as a backup.
    They are on their way up, and we're in a beginning rebuild mode.

    Alright thats fair. Its not telling the whole story but if that's what you read I can see why you would think that. What it doesn't mention Is that the dolphins are supposed to have a ton of cap space again next year, which now they won't but they also shouldn't have to cut anybody.

    That article is actually pretty dumb. Instead of saying depending onwhat our cap space will be in 2014, how about doing a little research. They could've avoided the whole article

    LOL, Dolphins sign a couple of decent LB's, after releasing a couple LB's, our unwanted TE, and Mike Wallace and they are now the best team in the AFC East?

    LOL

    Will be interesting to see how effective Wallace will actually be. The majority of his big plays with the Steelers were the result of Ben scrambling around extending the play.

    Pats took huge hit with the loss of Welker, that is the reason Brady was so pissed and it was all over the news, he knew the value that Welker added as his safety valve.

    I'd rather my team forfeit all 16 games than watch either one week in and week out

    1) Could be your smartest post in 10 years.

    2) You are back to posting stupid things. Even with the loss of Welker, the Pats offense will still average 30+ points per game.
