As I said, with all our problems, AJ does not represent "the best possible opportunity to succeed" imo, and when your ignoring other deficits on the team to dump even more money into WRs, that is a luxury, one we can't afford.


You're talking about "we don't know if Tannehill is the answer at QB" but are not willing to give him a considerable upgrade to work with. It's almost as if you're OK with hiring an employee and then giving him some tools to work with, but not the best tools you can possibly acquire to help him succeed, and then when he doesn't succeed, you put it all on him and wipe your hands clean of responsibility. That's poor management and leadership 101.

As for all of our problems, our biggest problem is offense and scoring.

Quote:
We are already into our rollover, which means we are actually over the cap, how many decent players will have to be cut so we can keep an aging vet on the team next year, and no FA help for any other positions.


when you consider how many bad players we have on the roster taking up considerable cap room (Phillip Wheeler, Dannell Ellerbe), aging vets who may already have their replacement on the roster (Cameron Wake, Brandon Gibson) and then Mike Pouncey, who will probably be getting an extension because he will eat up $8 million in cap space in 2015, there is certainly room to maneuver.

You can trade for Andre Johnson, restructure him and still roll over about $5-$8 million.

They already have given him considerable upgrades at WR that he was not able to take advantage of, that is not a valid point, if our QB has to be surrounded by premiere WRs then he isn't that good to begin with.

I know he's from Miami and went to the U, but that in and of itself is not a good enough reason to sign him, he has to fit the future plans and he doesn't, he's 33, 1 ACL type injury and his career is over, age makes you more prone to injury, and at his age you never know, he may retire next year, it doesn't make good football sense, we already have WAY too much money tied up in over priced FAs, we need to be able to start drafting our talent instead of buying it in.

I don't think Rich is counting on Miami actually signing him...I wouldn't know why anyone on this board would. Looks like he is just pointing out the fact that we can sign him, doesn't mean we will, or should. This debate just sounds like something to discuss during the off season, nothing is going to happen lol.
