Franchise QBs don't have to be elite. I'm not calling him a top 5-10 QB. Everyone in Miami feels, based on his performance last year, he can be our franchise QB. Not drinking the kool aid. As we stand today, we have an elite running game. Ronnie Brown may suffer his share off freak injuries, but until he gets injured, then our running game will suffer. Until then, it's an elite unit, just like last year. We need a NT because Ferguson is old and will miss the first 8 games. Paul Soliai is good enough to hold down the position for 8 games, but we need another NT because he's the only one on the roster for the first 8 games. http://profootballfocus.com/by_position.php?tab=by_position&season=2009&pos=DE4&stype=r&runpass=&teamid=-1&numsnaps=25&numgames=1 This website ranks the best 3-4 DEs. Randy Starks, Kendall Langford, and Philip Merling are all top 5. Starks is the second best 3-4 DE, and Langford is the 7th best. This is a really good defensive line. Maybe you were confused, but I meant to say elite 3-4 defensive line. That should have been obvious, though. I don't even know how to respond to that. The only reason you feel this secondary won't be great is because you hate Miami. Last draft, Davis was the number one ranked CB. Sure, he was picked in the 20s, but not because of talent. He has the talent to be an elite corner. Sean Smith isn't going to be elite, but he could turn out to be a very fine #2 corner. Let's compare Revis's first season to Smith and Vontae. Revis played 542 snaps, Smith played 914, and Davis played 709. Both had many more snaps than he did. Revis was thrown at 42 times, giving up 25 catches for a 59.5 completion percentage. Smith was thrown at 67 times, giving up 38 catches for a 56.7 completion percentage. Davis was thrown at 76 times, giving up 48 catches for a 63.2 completion percentage. Revis gave up 3 TDs, Smith 4, and Davis 6. Revis had 4 interceptions, Smith 0, and Davis 4. Revis had 3 pass deflections, Davis had 8 and Smith had 10. Revis had a 59.9 passer rating, Smith had a 116.1 passer rating, and Davis had a 104.9 passer rating. Profootballfocus scored Darrel Revis a 1.7 in coverage, Smith a -1.6, and Davis a 3.7. Revis was better than Davis, but not by much. He was clearly better than Smith. But he wasn't thrown into the fire like they were. Crowder did have a bad year last year. But like I said, he was a good player the year before that. He just had a down year. Play him next to Dansby, and your ILB unit is good. It's not Bart Scott and David Harris, but it's good. Like I said, I didn't overrate anything. You keep ignoring the fact that I said this team could potentially be a great team. I'm not calling them great now. They are an average team, but have the talent and potential to be a great team. I'm not going to lie. I don't know anything about hockey, which is why I don't go into the thread. But since you don't know anything about football, and you keep coming into here, I might take a look into it. Honestly, I'd rather be a homer than a hater. You don't come into NFL threads trying talk about football. You're only intention is to start an argument about Miami. And for what? Because they got more time on TV than the Marlins. Grow up.
