In fact, some people have proposed cutting all of the offensive linemen on the team since we don't need them anymore.

Dang, who said that? I don't remember reading that post.


A bit of an exaggeration


Or a joke at the expense of someone who exaggerates what others are saying?

Selecting a fifth offensive lineman in the draft's first two-rounds since 2007 certainly isn't sexy


This tells me Miami is failing somewhere. Whether it be at scouting or in the development of these players.

Disagree.

Most of those selections have been good players.

Jake Long, Mike Pouncey, Samson Satele... none of them are busts. Still waiting on Jonathan Martin.

Jake Long simply broke down physically... Pouncey is an arrow up player.

Satele is still in the league with the Colts. He was simply a victim of circumstance. He got drafted by one regime in 2007 that believed in zone blocking, but he was not a system fit in 2008 when they went to a power blocking scheme. He's not a worldbeater, but is a starting caliber player.

Now we are back to changing OLman again. Constance change brings no change.

Has Satele been a good starting player is the question?

Yes they are "solid" players, but we haven't won a SB drafting that way. it's time to draft playmakers, not safe OL picks.

Exactly, every regime wants their players and every 2-3 years we have a new regime.

That wasn't the point I was making, though.

I am in agreement with taking a playmaker.
