Not too sure how you guys feel about Philbin. Do y'all think he can make it as a head coach? Seems a little too bent on forcing square pegs into round holes rather than adapting to the talent at hand.

Anyhow we need some talent at WR, RG, & RT. Anyone likely to get cut, or put on PS, that we could use? I'm thinking you guys are set at WR, and given the ties with the team, GB would be our best hope.

I think he is doing the single most important thing any new coach would have done in that spot. Setting the culture!

Have faith. That's a very good football mind and even better person! Only time will tell if he brings Miami a ring. But he is going to do things the right way IMO. Hang your hat on that and see where it goes. If the players buy in, odds are you will be a happy fan.

Agree with the last part there. Would not shock me one bit if Miami dips into some of this Packers young talent after cuts.

We are probably not the squad to raid for OL. The guys we cut here are probably the same quality players that the Dolphins have as second teamers.
[edit] that sounds a lot arrogant, sorry. I meant our OL cuts are probably the same quality players that yours are. Just watching the preseason, our OL depth is not good

WR on the other hand is pretty deep. Diondre Borel, Tori Gurley and Jarrett Boykin have shown promise. They are all unlikely to make the roster. Doubtful that they will be stars, but would probably see the field on a team with fewer quality WRs. As it stands we don't get much from James Jones, who is probably a 2 or 3 option on a lot of other teams.

We are also going to cut some DL and LBs that can contribute, at least on some level for a lot of teams. Not to say the talent at those positions is amazing, rather I think the depth is consistent.

I have a lot of respect for Philbin as a coach/person. I really hope he turns Miami around. Good luck this season.

If we have to cut Borel I so hope Miami lands him! I really want Philbin and this Miami experiment works out. I like a lot of there young players and hope they find success.

What Philbin needs is time. His turnaround won't be one season in the making. The Dolphins, from what I've seen, are a mess on paper. There's only so much a coach can do about that. Given two seasons to build guys up and pick up the players he wants, though, maybe he can be successful.

It all comes down to his relationship with Tannehill. If it's McCarthy/Rodgers he'll do fine. If it's Mike Nolan/Alex Smith it'll be a nightmare.

If that's the case, he'll be fine. Tannahill is very easy to love. About what you would draw up above the shoulders from a leadership perspective. If it slows down for him(add in Sugar Bear/Philbin here) kid could be a star. Don't know if I could have taken him there but the upside is very high end IMO.
