Is this team better?

Early this week, Joe Rose was telling listeners that this current Dolphins team has a better roster than the one that played in 2007.  True?  Lets look at the players:

               2007                          /                         2011
QB - Trent Green & Cleo Lemon (with a dash of John Beck) / Chad Henne & Matt Moore
RB - Ronnie Brown & Jesse Chatman / Reggie Bush & Donald Thomas
FB - Regan Mauia / not using a FB
WR - Marty Booker, Chris Chambers, Ted Ginn / Davone Bess, Brian Hartline, Brandon Marshall
TE - Justin Peele & David Martin / Tony Fasano and the other guy (Mastrud)
LT - Vernon Carey / Jake Long
LG - Chris Lewinski / Incognito
C  - Samson Satele / Mike Pouncey
RG - Rex Hadnot / Vernon Carey
RT - LJ Shelton / Marc Colombo

D-line - Matt Roth, Keith Traylor, Vonnie Holiday, Rodrique Wright, Jason Taylor / Kendall Langford, Phillip Merling, Paul Soliai, Jared Odrick
LB - Crowder, Donnie Spragan, Derek Pope, Zach Thomas, Joey Porter / JT, Cam Wake, Koa Misi, Dansby, Kevin Burnett
CB - Michael Lehan, Travis Daniels, Will Allen / Sean Smith, Vontae, Nolan Caroll, Will Allen
S - Jason Allen, Cam Worrell, Renaldo Hill / Yermiah Bell, Reshad Jones

So what do you think?  There are individual players on each roster who stand out, but IMHO its a close race right now.
