In my opinion we are a team that could really be a five hundred team this year with our schedule and playing in the AFC East its always hard to compete but I really think that our team came on strong last year and we finished with a five hundred record in the second half. That is with Fitz missing a start and him playing a terrible game against New England. We also came close to beating the Chiefs, Ravens,and Steelers last year and while close isnt enough Chan has these guys playing the butts off. Also Contrary to popular belief we have not struck out in this Free agency period. How many free agents have the colts signed or the patriots or the Steeler or the Packers. Good teams develop there own players and then when there done with them other teams come and sign them to big contracts and think ok great we signed a player form a great team so now we should be good too. Football is sucha team effort that Free agents rarely have the impact there supposed to.
We lost a 4-3 MLB in Poz and while that sucks it doesn't severely hurt us. We got back Florence whom I thought was extremely important because Mckelvin is sooo inconsistent and Mcgee is injury prone. I think we had the best draft of any team this year i know Mel Kiper doesn't think so because we didnt draft Gabbert but i dont think Gabbert would have been a good player in Buffalo and he was definitely not worth at numbe three maybe where Jax got him but not third overall. We got arguably the best player M. Dareus and filed needs all along the defense with bigger stronger players.
The offense is gonna be better with Brad Smith because he adds an element to our third down offense that can really expose defenses and give teams something they need to prepare for. He is an electric KR and with him Spiller can be relieved of those duties giving him the chance to split PR with Parrish maybe giving our team a great chance at winning the field position battle that really matters. I know it looks like we dont have a tight end but in my opinion Chan Gailey doesn't really need one he seems to like having a ton of receivers for the spread looks he runs all the time some were fine there. We have good RB's with solid depth there. The OL is kinda iffy but in another year we will have to address that in the draft. Our interior is formidable but ouor RT situation leaves something to be desired and we have to hope we can sign a player who gets cut like a Nick Kazcur or maybe even bring in Matt Light for a year.
Fitz is a player who I think we can all get behind he isn't the most accurate which bothers me some but he is incredibly tough and smart and understands the game. He is a risk taker on a team that needs to push the envelope in order to win and he can do just that... win. If Dareus plays like he can and Merrimen has a solid year and Moats comes on a Pass Rusher( if he plays OLB and not ILB) we can have a team that could be 8 - 8 and moving in the right direction. One more draft and we could easily compete for the division. The Jets will always be held back by Sanchez he is not a franchise QB that team seriously masks his deficiencies. Brady is getting older and the Dolphins just dont know how to run a team they're like the Redskins lite
