    And he was 8-4 as a starter that year which I think is the same record Tim Tebow had after starting his first 12 games of his career except one was a playoff win against the Steelers......Tim's waiting for some of that crazy singer Jackson love

    Well probably not

Meanwhile GB and NE, NO and other top teams have supposedly lower rated LT's that just get the job done which is all we really need. It's like marrying the woman with 44D's when the 36 C's give you more than a mouthful anyway.

    Umm.. last I checked the DOlphins are starting a rookie QB who many experts figured to be a project, not only is he getting time to make plays, but due to that he's growing from it.

    They are running the ball and keeping his responsibility to a minimum. Jake Long isn't the reason they are 4-3. Look at the defense.

    Looks like he just might. I asked about his speed in another thread, but didn't get a reply. While he certainly isn't going to win a lot of jump balls, if his speed can get him the separation, then he becomes a viable target down field.

    With Harvin's speed, I wonder why they didn't try it more often with him?

    By the time we pick up that 6' 5" receiver with golden hands and 4.3 in the 40 Kalil would have not only solidified the line but will be by nature of experience improved in the position even further.

    He was the right pick imho without doubt and if we continue to draft players like Harvin etc we are a good year/18 months into the rebuilding phase. The jury for me is out on Ponder, he is smart off the field for sure but can you teach defensive reads, game management etc or is it inate in the player himself? Watching the game yesterday there were several occasions where the D line was stacked and there was no change in the play and Adrian got stuffed for a loss. Maybe the coaches don't allow him the luxury of audibles at the line but then that is another issue.

    I hope Wright did enough last night to get more time but with the way this team is being coached at the moment who knows!!
