Post Dolphins agree to terms with Shelley Smith
From Rotoworld.com.



Dolphins agreed to terms with OG Shelley Smith, formerly of the Rams, on a two-year, $5.5 million contract.
The deal includes $1.5 million guaranteed. It's a nice signing for a team moving on from the Richie Incognito/John Jerry "era," though Smith has made only eight career starts. Smith is a road grader in the run game, but needs to improve as a pass blocker. Going on 27, he'll get every opportunity to earn a starting job.


Like this signing.

Like her reporting on ESPN.

Honestly another great signing. That 2014 schedule doesnt seem so brutal anymore.

Can this guy be a stud?

Or is it more fair to simply expect a solid upgrade from last year?

Not an upgrade over Incognito, but yes over Jerry et al.

Does anyone really have any problems with these signings. Have we not improved. Do the Pats really scare any of us any more. Besides Denver in the AFC who can you say is better.
Just saying. Look , there is no more excuses.... year after year that is what has been here. Even last season ... the refs , a bad bounce of the ball , whatever , its always something. Talent is here. Ireland was not the problem (while I do agree his time was up here). The window is now because if we dont do anything this upcoming season we will be more of a joke. Meaning that if this coming season matches this past off season , then we become the Matt Millen Lions.

Finesse, for the fun of it, I'm going to pretend that you're serious.

1. Do the Pats scare me? Ummm, they've won the division more years than Hulk Hogan was relevant. So, mainly they piss me off.

2. In the AFC, who is better? Well, the Bills swept us last year. Besides that though, lots of teams might be. Broncos, Patriots, Bengals, Ravens, Chargers, Colts, Chiefs... and maybe more. Maybe lots more. Coaching matters.

3. It's showtime. YES. This. I drank the Philbin Koolaid, now it's maybe souring my stomach a bit. Put up or... see ya.

1 - Pats usually win by default because other teams in the division suck ... we do not
2 - lots of maybe's in there. This is the year that the maybe's become positives in our favor
3 - Philbin is the man!!! OK , you got me there but he should at least be adequate with this group of guys.

I would go as far to say we have the better QB at this point in their careers.
And by the way ... Hulk A Mania can never die!!!

1. We are 8-8 until we prove otherwise. While that might not qualify as "sucking" to you, it kinda smells a lot like it to me.

2. lots of maybes in there for us as well.... as in, maybe we'll have an O-line. Maybe our secondary can stay healthy and play. Maybe we'll find a running game. Maybe Jordan isn't a bust and our coaches will know how to use him... etc.

3. I agree we have some talent. So does everyone else in the division.

We have a better QB than Brady? You just lost me bro. You got any more of that stuff?

On this we will agree... Hulkamania Rules!!! :pumpiron:

Tannehill year 3 .... Brady year 13? What I am saying at those points. I think Brady is best ever but limited years left.

A former 6th round pick with 8 starts under his belt. ?

Get ready for a plaque at the Hall of Fame because this is the moment the dynasty began.

(Its entirely sad that this IS an improvement)

Obviously we grade each lineman individually. The biggest improvement will be: better line coach, better offensive coordinator and the cohesiveness of the line. Last year we had a whiner and a knucklehead. Both were out of the lineup for an extended period of time. Jerry was adequate at best. Albert is much better than what we threw in at LT last year. The OL should be a big improvement over last year. The final product will depend on how they play as a unit.
