I had assumed - as we headed into the lockout - that Miami's roster would remain more or less the same once this season rolled around.
In fact, the only changes that may make a difference are Reggie Bush and Thomas in the backfield, Mike Pouncey on the line, Jason Taylor at OLB, and the subtraction of Channing Crowder.
Otherwise the players you will see on the field in most situations will be the same ones that underperformed and went 7-9 (1-7 at home).
I've gotta say that I am not inspired or particularly enthused in spite of Sparano telling us they are "outstanding"...sure they can continue to grow together, but how much? and how soon?
