Hello, My name is Lawrence, I have been following this blog site for quite some time and decided to put my 2 cents in! First I wanna say thank you to Dave for allowing me to post on here and also that I enjoy all of your guys' opinions and comments! First off, am I the only dolphins fan in the world that thinks Philbin in a good coach? 7/8 on challenges! I know its hard to see but you can sometimes catch a glimpse of him getting fired up over a call on the sidelines every now and then, I think the beat writers as well as 99% of the fan base has this guy pegged wrong. Secondly, I could not be more ecstatic that Sherman was let go. Philbin can now run the team the way he sees fit. He no longer "owes" anything to Sherman, not to mention that Sherman's offense was horrid. He was quoted during the season as saying, "the reason Ryan has a hard time hitting the long ball is because Mike (Wallace) has been hampered by a hamstring and we haven't practiced it that much." REALLY?? So Tannehill cant throw it to Clay, Hartline, or even Lamar Miller? I know that it will be hard to replicate the speed of Wallace but Lamar Miller was a former track star and is pretty darn fast!! What a cop out answer! Lastly, I couldn't be more excited for the Lazor hiring as OC. There are a lot of similarities between the Eagles offensive personnel and the Dolphins. Look at Mike Wallace & DeSean Jackson, both small recievers that take the top off the defense. Riley Cooper & Brian Hartline, NO COMPARISON!! Hartline is a much better reciever. Not to mention that we have a better recieving TE in Clay. The only thing the Eagles have that we don't is a 4 down back that can pass protect, catch the ball out of the backfield, and break tackles. I firmly believe we should strongly pursue Ben Tate this offseason. With 29 Million in cap space I think we could make it happen as well as strengthen out O-Line....Like This Article ? :
