^^^ Brandon Marshall is one of the worst people in the NFL. I dont care how talented he is, he is a complete piece of poo.

and generally ignored signing his young talented SuperStars.

.....




I'm not buying the "Can't do big contracts because of possible lockout" excuse either.



Kurb had some very valid points but who do ya'll think we should be wrapping up long term right now?

Not signing Beason, Kalil or Williams to contract extensions is very telling to me.


Expecting fans to shell out big bucks ( in a bad economy) while you are cutting every corner to save money for the good of the NFL, and not the team, is IMO pitiful.

I just don't understand. Didn't the front office make Peppers an offer that would have made him the highest paid defensive player in the league?

If they're willing to do that, why not extend Beason/Kalil or sign a free agent/trade for a WR?

I'm not worried about this season because I think we'll do well, but they could have done a lot more had they been more active.

In a few years when we are contenders every year due to our money saving initiatives now..everyone will be singing Jerry's praises. Patience is a virtue.

We could have made a serious attempt at going for Marshall and been fine in the cap room later down the road.. 1) the cap space used on his contract was low for #1 WRs.. 2) he is the best FA to come out and will have been the best (hands down) compared to 2011 FAs.. so "when we can buy half the NFL".. well, we missed our chance...

our #1 WR would be shored up for years.. Smitty could have stepped back into a 1B or 2 role, which he said he wouldn't have been mad about... and our WR corp would have been legit, whereas it's pathetic at the moment.. LaFell, and hopefully Jarrett will have been decent compliments.. and not needed as a #2, which we'll be lucky to see happen this year..


---------------

there is no arguing it... we passed up a great opportunity, and for TWO 2nd round picks? come on man....

and who gives a f**k if our entire team isn't Mother Theresa's kin? BM is a playmaker.. and young, get off your soapbox.. the Dolphins are going to benefit huge from him.. we could have..

I'm so tired of hearing how someone isn't a perfect fit for our team.. you see what we're getting now? ADD 1 PLAYMAKER... if he shows up on Sunday's and changes the game, that's all I need to know..

if you could just hold back a little one season and have it reap monumental rewards putting you in serious playoff and superbowl contention yearly, wouldn't it be worth it?


Sure, but my question is "Isn't that a pretty big gamble ?" For us yea. For JR who gets 100's of millions no matter what our record, not really.

Like I said if the diabolical plan works, someone bump this thread and I will tell everyone I was wrong.

Good post Kurb. The fans and PSL owners deserve a winner. PERIOD. I dont give a damn about CBA's or possible lockout. The NBA is facing a potential lockout next year, but they aint stop half the league shelling out millions upon millions in new contracts this summer. Including the biggest free agency chase in perhaps sports history. Using the "potential lockout" as an excuse to shed salary and not field a competitive squad dont fly.

kalil, beason, williams in that order.

maybe charles johnson but that might not be necessary and can probably wait to find out.

beyond that we will be fine either way.

I hope there is a plan. JR needs to be doing things not through a businessman's eyes or a fans eyes but through a PSL owner's eyes. The NFL can kiss his ass all he wants and can give a team to anyone who kisses their's back but without money and support it just isn't happening. I agree with you Kurb as of now I am not buying poo, not attending ONE home game which feels bad but seeing as prices somehow went up and spending went way WAY down there is no reason to, I can support my team from my TV. If after years to come we are somehow able to hold onto our insulted stars and sign more great players I'll gladly say I was wrong and this was a great plan.

I know it's more likely than not but what if there is no lockout?

Small minds see whats wrong right now. Great minds see whats wrong with the future. The big picture come into play here. Have you ever heard of a company where the workers make more then the CEOs....



You are right there, for the fans (little guys) are getting serious ass fuged with a pine cone right now, while the big boss still makes all his cash no matter what.

Boldin really would have been the ideal fit here.
But thats another argument.
