Post Hartline: Fins WR Core is AFC East's Best
Quote:
The Miami Dolphins' new receiving corps has Ryan Tannehill oozing praise. Wide receiver Brian Hartline, who re-signed with the Dolphins earlier this offseason, concurs.

Hartline told "NFL AM" on Monday morning that the additions of Mike Wallace and tight end Dustin Keller give the Dolphins the best receivers in the AFC East.

"Absolutely, I think we are," Hartline said, mentioning Wallace, Keller and running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. "The whole passing game is an advantage of ours."

At first blush, it sounds like a bold statement from Hartline. Then you dissect the other options: The New York Jets' best receiver -- by far -- played four games last year; the New England Patriots downgraded from Wes Welker and their tight end duo has health concerns; and the Buffalo Bills are Stevie Johnson and the question-mark gang.

Hartline said Tannehill's improvement in his sophomore season will dictate how well the Dolphins do in 2013. The receiver believes the marriage between quarterback and a coaching staff, also in its second season, is playing a key role in the team's growth.

"A lot of (Tannehill's growth) has been the communication and the development between player and coach," Hartline said. "You can see coach (Joe) Philbin coming into his own as well, Mike Sherman feeling just more comfortable as coaching staff. Being able to use all different parts ... we have a lot of new parts. Although very important that we got them, it's also very important that we mesh and work together ... and that is something that we are working on now."

I like that we've got the extra pre-season game this year. We'll need all the time and reps we can get to build chemistry before the season starts. With so many new faces, creating chemistry and timing is going to be huge for Tannehill and his weapons.

He was asked a question, he answered it. Too many players are afraid of being honest and rather go the "politically correct" route with some boring clich├ęs...

Hopefully he can back up the talk by repeating his yardage total from last year, but this time actually finding the endzone more than once.

Let's hope Wallace frees him up, and he scores more frequently. But he's going to have to learn how not to trip on that errant blade of grass...

Is he wrong? Not for saying it, but on paper does any other AFC East team have more talent?

Take the QB out of the equation for a moment because Brady changes the conversation. If you have generic, middle of the road QB X who would he want to throw to as a unit?

The Fins have close to the most complete unit. The only thing I'm unsure of is a tall, red zone target. Maybe Sims or Egnew become that.

The Pats have 2 great TEs and a questionable Amendola.

The Bills have Johnson and rookies.

The Jets have Holmes, Hill and not much else.

everyone on NFL network agrees with him. Even that hater Heath Evans.
We're actually probably one of the most overall talented teams now in the NFL, I'd say top 10 roster talent. It just has to translate to the field.
