Miami is not out of things, and will likely be 4-3 after this week. Can't imagine any big moves. However, Gibson may be one to watch. He has not been playing, been a healthy inactive last week, and will not be here next year. JMO

He has this and next year left on his contract, and is guaranteed $1M in each year off his signing bonus, which we take a hit for. His salary this year is $2.7M, trade him ad we save over a million of it. Next year, his salary is $3.2M which he is not going to see.

So, I'm thinking a trade has to be at least considered. Many teams are looking for WR's, and we may be able to add a 5th or 6th round pick while saving a Mil in cap space.

Any other trades worth thinking about in adding or subtracting?]]>

Subject: A Closer Look at the OL So Far - by: Southbeach
Colledge- Average pass, and bad on the run. An OK band aid but, needs to step up.

Satele- Average pass, good on the run but, has had a couple of bad games.

RG- All bad other than Smith on the run but, Pouncey is not in game shape just yet.

James- Bad pass, average on the run. Has gone down after a VG start. Only 1 sack but, 7 hits and 9 hurries is more than double of anyone else on the team.

No question that the OL has improved but, shill has a ways to go.]]>

Subject: Season predictions? - by: cuchulainn
We still have to face the jets twice and the bills and pats again. Bills have lost both Spiller and Jackson. Pats are beat up on defense. Stej sucks. Chargers, bills, ravens, and pats are the toughest teams remaining.



Right now, I have us at:

@Jags - W
Chargers - L
@Lions - W
Bills - W
@Broncos - L
@Jets - W
Ravens - L
@Pats - L
Vikes - W
Jets - W

9-7... I'm torn on the Chargers game. Beat them and we could end up 10-6.

I have us splitting with the pats and bills and sweeping the stej. Philbin and Tannehill owe some payback for the end of last season.]]>

Subject: Help us with Miami Dolphins Salute To The Military - by: Txmedic5 There is no question that our military does a lot to help our nation, like duh! Now we can show some of the local Miami military and their families a little support as well. We will be conducting an immediate drive to raise money for this initiative. If we get $250.00, we will be able to purchase eight game tickets plus an additional two that we will ask the team to donate as well. If we raise $500.00 we will get 20 tickets for military families.
I know this is short notice and the initiative ends October 23rd but the team has asked all of the fan sites to drive this initiative to help raise awareness and get these families to this game. You might be thinking that military families can afford their own tickets but that is not always the case. Many military personnel work for next to nothing and with the climbing prices and state of our economy it gets very difficult. I live 20 minutes outside of Fort Bragg, NC and can attest to the trials that returning troops have to go through to make ends meet.
Help your Miami Dolphins get these great men and women to a Miami Dolphins game. You can donate to this cause in two ways. You can buy the package yourself by going here or you can donate to our drive to buy as many packages as possible by going to our donations page here and following the instructions.
All of those who donate will be a part of special article prior to the Bills game and will have their picture should they desire as well as a special one on one personal Q&A. In addition, the leading donor will receive a signed copy of “Perfection: The Inside Story of the 1972 Undefeated Miami Dolphins” written by Dave Hyde and Bob Griese. The book is signed by Bob Griese.
This is a great initiative that I support 110%. I come from a military family and have a brother currently serving the armed forces and has made several deployments to the Middle East. Let’s show the Miami Dolphins that we are more than just fans…that we are PHINATICS!]]>

Subject: Are Philbin and Hickey Joined at the Hip? - by: Southbeach
Ross has created a somewhat novel situation in having a GM and OC in their first years, with a disappointing coach in his 3rd year.

Hickey has been VG in the draft, and pretty good in FA. Add in Lazor, who I expect to be "loved by all" in the near future. Then there is Coyle, who I like, Benton, who I really like, and the DL coach (can't recall his name), who has done a great job. Philbin, No.

Hiring a VG new HC is tuff enough but, finding one to come in with an existing GM. OC, DC. OL and DL coach may be Mission Impossible.

Make the playoffs, and all is well but IF we do not, what would you do?

Side note- Harbaugh is NOT coming here.]]>
