I understand this is isolating each group by personnel.......but significant improvement in OL & QB will make our WRs better than last year. Here's to Amendola & Parker staying healthy.

Been watching PFF's draft breakdowns by Team on YouTube. They seem pretty high on the Phins draft, going in detail on 5 picks, including 7th rounder Quentin Poling, LB, Ohio.

I agree with the title of the thread. The question is how much better? Miami could go 8-8 and technically be better, but we will all be disappointed with that result.

3 key things (IMO) for Miami to be a 10 Win team:

- Gase has to successfully install a pass heavy offense that uses the running backs and slot guys taking short throws and turning them into huge YAC. That will keep defenses guessing and allow Stills and Parker some more vertical opportunities as well.

- Has to be a top 16 defense, plain and simple. Last year they were 16th in yards allowed but 29th in points allowed. Have to be top 16 in both.

- Tannehill has to be darn close to top 10 in QB Rating, and not just via garbage time stat accumulation.

Gase has been talking about it since he got here, but he hasn't done it yet. Our new OC is supposed to be a balanced play caller, and you saw that in Chicago, but that was more than likely Fox demanding a safe offensive game plan. Gase has given his input into retooling the offense with speed, hard work, and intelligence (we hope). If we look back at what Tannehill did in 2016 under Gase, he did when we went into the 2 minute drill offense. In fact, Tannehill always did well in a no-huddle offense throughout his career.

One thing that I do like is that if our passing game opens up that it will open things up for Kenyan Drake. Some "gurus" are predicting him to be our break out player. With the no-huddle being talked about, it makes it very difficult for defenses to substitute players between plays. Unfortunately, if we go 3 and out our defense will live on the field and wear out. The 80's Bills teams had a great defense but they never ranked at the top due to their no-huddle offense. We shall see.
