Hartline's deal

28 posts in this topic

He's white? I didn't know that for some reason. Maybe cause I could not care any less about the Dolphins and Buckeyes. Is he like a possession guy or is he a burner?

Who was that sorry Ohio State WR they had for awhile? Robyski?

Not sure how we have the right to laugh at them, when we thought the extensions to Godfrey, and Dwill were good deals.

I didn't. I facepalmed.

I doubt Lafell will get that. If all goes as plans, Lafell will be playing 3rd/slot this year, and if Steve decides to stick around next year, he won't be getting #2 WR money.

Hartlines deal strengthens the argument to draft a receiver early.

The 1 td argument is ridiculous. I watched every second of every dolphins game. He was over thrown on wide open touch downs 4 times last year. Ryan Tannehill was either pressured or just missed him. Hartline is 6'2 200 pounds and runs a 4.4-4.5 40. Hes young, makes highlight catches, and broke the miami dolphins single game yard record last season against Arizona. This is a team that had the marks brothers, oj mcduffie, irving fryar, chris chambers etc. So thats pretty big.

He eclipsed 1k yards last year as a #1 WR, with #1 defenders covering him, with a rookie qb throwing him the ball. The deal is also established to only count about 3-4 mm against the cap this season, and the bulk of the money is paid in the back end of the contract, making the possibility of cutting him after year 3 a possibility if hes not meeting the expectations of his contract.

Its a good deal, he has chemistry with Tannehill, knows the offense, no drama off or on the field, and works hard. Ill take it all day every day.

Justify it how you must, and I'm not saying he is a bad player but in comparison, Smith's last contract was 4 years for $30, and you can't tell me those two guys are in the same ball park. I probably wouldn't have created the thread if we weren't in need of a WR, and possibly using FA to fill that void, and this contract, if used as leverage by other players, won't help our cause.

This isn't really to trash the Phins either, lord knows the silly contract D WIlliams received from us could be mocked this hard too, but didn't seem to hurt the Ravens or Texans when signing Rice and Foster because Foster signed for same while Rice was $10 million less and both are undoubtedly better players.

Inflation dude. Contracts go up every year. Plus the phins have tons of cap room and need WR. It isnt a bad deal.

    • I took it as voth getting defensive on behalf of the media when Gettleman slighted them in his comments. I like voth, but I don't like the attitude I've seen for years that is typical among media/journalists. .."we are owed access to everything and everyone.  Don't you dare turn us down or speak ill about us or we'll make you pay."
    • If y'all want to talk about a legit issue with illegals lets talk about the babies they make here and then the inability to collect child support when they peace out.  Until the Trump goes after the business that employee them, it's all pious claptrap.
    • I'm very familiar with the passage and the events that brought about His answer. Yes, the response was savvy, but He also didn't lie. There's another important passage about a widow donating her last two coins while the rich man donated more, but less, too. I'm sure you can massage that to nuance something to assuage your soul, but really, when it comes down to it all, there are some folks on the Conservative side that preach long and hard about following Jesus. The problem is that when they get to the part about taking care of the sick, the poor, the incarcerated and the downtrodden, they suddenly have a host of excuses and want to start parsing the wording so that they don't have to look at themselves and say, "Man, I'm supposed to be there for the less fortunate, but nah, not really. I mean, yeah, Salvation and all, but now we're talking about my hard-earned money." They always want the New Testament's forgiveness to apply to themselves, and they delight in the Old Testament being visited upon other folks. Outside of religion, they're also the ones who think it's a crying shame that "those people" don't have the means to fix themselves and then shake it off with the rationalization that those folks probably got themselves into that mess in the first place. We're all guilty of that to some degree, sadly, myself included.
