Lee Evans on the trade block? So ...?

Lee Evans is on the trading block in Buffalo, the entire NFL has known for a couple of days.

He's good. Last year was frustrating and injury shortened and disappointing from a production standpoint and he still caught 37 passes for a 578 yards, which is a 15.6 yard per catch average.

He is a classic deep threat sideline receiver.

The Dolphins lack one of those that is proven.

And I seriously doubt when Evans is traded, he will be wearing Miami colors. It doesn't fit. Trades within a division are rare in the NFL. The Dolphins would have to give up something for Evans and they seem too satisfied with their current crop of receivers to make such an offer.

It would require some major boldness by Jeff Ireland to see him as an upgrade at age 30, convince himself he wants Evans, convince Buffalo to give him up to a rival, and somehow negotiate the deal.

I'd like it. But don't see it. Only reason I'm telling you is I've already gotten 12 e-mails and a couple of tweets from Dolphins fans wondering why Miami doesn't make this move.

Arizona has been mentioned as a trade partner. Baltimore, Jacksonville and the New York Giants, too. So, again, it would be a pleasant surprise if he ends up in Miami but that's improbable. I would, instead, consider him not ending up in with New England or the Jets a victory of sorts.

Just sayin'.

Why is it every time a player is placed on a trading block there is someone who thinks we should pounce? Have we not learned from the Wannsted years?

Mostly not worth a look because we're going to have to give up a draft pick for him. All of this wide receiver talk is nice but it's pointless. This team needs a good QB (will Henne pick it up this year? who knows) and a better TE option. Veteran RB wouldn't hurt either. But those are our three areas of need right now. A good to great QB will make our receivers look like a great group.

I can kind of understand why they weren't able to add a vet QB to compete with Henne. Slim pickings and guys like Hasselback do not want to hear "we're bringing you in to compete with this no name" so maybe someone falls into our laps like Penny did.

But for the life of me I can't figure out why they didn't bring in a TE and RB. Relying on rookies when the owner is already opening the door for your departure? STUPID! And Zack Miller was available. Freaking Darren Sproles was there for the taking. WTF happened?

I know they may have their reasons and they very well could be good reasons. But as long as the FO wants to play the close to the vest game they are going to get shredded by the fans. It's one thing to play it close to the vest when your talking game strategy, play books and injuries, we get that, competitive edge. But what harm is there in telling the fans, (the same ones you told last year that there would be serious competition at qb and a new rushing attack) what your thinking? Why not give us some reasons why you didn't follow up what you said? STUPID.

And Mr.Ross (or anyone close to him that could relay this message), make no mistake about it, you are losing money and supporters because of this us against them mentality the FO has developed when it comes to communicating with the fans. Yes New England does it, but they also win.

Always been an Evans fan, even as he was BBQ'ing us up & down the field, early in his career. Dude just gets behind guys....Period.

Ripp..its just curious interest....

I would love to have a collection of talented NAMED players....

Collecting talent has helpred the jets make TWO STAIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES....

so talent speks for itself....and aquiring talent means DEPTH at a postion...or positions.....and there is nothing wrong with that....

By the way, the Perfect Storm analogy was borrowed from fin4life a few days ago. I didn't mean to steal his material like I accidentally did with kris and his "Henne Hopeful" quote.

Players get hurt....even wide recievers.....so....if we can collect some talent...it woud be nice....

Finsfan72....

were good....I'm do no futher credit for the Henne Hopeful phrase.....

Good thought ripp. Like a bunch of cows and the grass is always greener other side of the fence.

From what I know I have been here for 64 yrs and some months. But its becoming apparent that I've been here somewhat longer.

Kris what do you do with all the talent on the team now?? Cut them loose and loose them??

That's a good problem to have(as Shula used to say), itch.

At this point I think the biggest letdown for me has to be not bringing in a TE.

There were some available and even if they were only temporary stop gaps, they definitely would have been an upgrade over Fasano.

I think Fasano makes a serviceable no. 2 TE but that's about it. I am now making him my "new" Clam Chowder.

I'll be rooting for Clay to put Fasano on the pine just like I was rooting for Dobbins to put Chowder on the bench last year.

I was wrong about Dobbins obviously, but I originally was rooting for Micah Johnson(who the FO waived)to put them BOTH on the bench.

PS: Watch for Micah Johnson to have a Pro Bowl season for K.C. this year!

Who is Micah Johnson?

Kris,

Don't back away from that now.

Aloco was just about to annoint you King of the Gang of Henne Hopefuls!

Kafta playing well in 3rd quarter for Philly. I see young as #3 scout team guy.

T.O. would be the 2nd best receiver on our team if we took him in, but would you want to give up a promising young player for 1 or 2 years of T.O?

I think R. Wallace may give us 8 good years if we let him develop. That seems smarter to me than picking up an old vet for a year or two.

And if we have to give up a draft pick, forget it. Not a chance I'd do that.

when henne a 4 year starter completes a pass in practice its YAHOOOOO, but when vince young not looking perfect after one week on a new team it means everyone is wrong about him.

True that.

Nice to see some football. Hope the Dolphins offense looks more dynamic friday.

I wonder about that RT position. They knew they were moving Carey, wonder why they didnt draft a RT of sign a good one in FA.

Hartline for Evens? They probably would not huh. I'd like to see a better player than Evens opposite BM.

I'm hopeful Wallace or Gates can emerge to supplant Hartline.

Better ST would help.

It would be nice to see Edd's and Wilson really stand out. That would help Ireland's credibility.

I believe the defense will take it up a notch this year with more turnovers, more pressure and a stout run defense.

Dansby and Burnett will figure it out.

The offensive line is a concern. Long? is he really injured from the dumb preseason game last year?

Thomas will go as the offensive line goes and Henne could benefit from a running game....

Oh well, hoping for the best.

Go Dolphins!

In the first stages of Psychotherapy, confrontation is essential.

With the new rookie wage scale, we have to quit trading away our draft picks.

Brain Fart,

What are you babbling about?

LTC said Young isn't looking too good and that the 3rd string rookie is out playing him. It's just the simple facts, that's it, nothing more. It's just one pre season game and nobody has said anything much.

All I said was Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...........PERIOD!

Just for the record though, it sounds like Youngs crappy play has hit a nerve with you-LOL!

CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE ;;;;;;

1- DB REMAIN THE FOUNDING FATHER OF THE (( GANG OF FOUR )).
2- KRIS HVE BEEN MOVED FROM THE GANG OF DEFEAT TO THE GANG OF HOPFUL ......

3- S.SAM WILL TAKE KRIS'S POST AS VP OF THE (( GANG OF FOUR ))

BACALA .........

MANDO is an IDIOT

Osacar,

Micah Johnson was with us briefly during the off season last year.

He's going to be the next Cameron Wake of ILB's this year!

This FO, in it's deep and infinite wisdom decided to go with Dobbins and Clam Chowder instead of developing the next BEAST ILB!

KC snatched him up very quickly!

Oscar-
You're a little trippier than usual tonight. Did you have some of the mushroom soup tonight?

Aloco,

Tell us about the first time you and Opus winfey took holiday in Monkey Island.

I thought it was glue but I have become convinced there are other substances that affect the Brain(+ or -).

The interesting thing about these Pre-Season games is seeng how teams are shaping up for the coming Season. I tell you guys I`m watching S.D. vs. Seattle and the Chargers starting D has been ravaged by age and FA. They lost Burnnett to Miami but there other starting LB`s are gone as well B.Siler, S.Cooper along with RDE Jaq Cesaire and FS E.Weddle while starting a rookie DT C.Liuget. In looking over the Chargers it looks like they will be playing Marino Ball this Season In S.D. were anything short of 35 points won`t do.

The Seahawks have added pieces on Offense to make themselves very competetive again then sign Tavaris Jackson to be there Q.B., huhh?? I am jelous watching Zach Miller in one of there uniforms though. To think they also went and got Sidney Rice to pair with the re-born Mike Williams and you wonder how they didn`t bring Hassellback back to the team for one more season at least. I know nobody really cares but forget S.D. in the AFC West or big picture for that matter and Norv Turner could be facing his last Season as there Coach. The Seahawks play in the NFC West so who really does care anyway.

Oprah Winfrey's breast milk...classic!

henne is shredding it in practice. potential mvp. sparano could be coach of the year with ten wins this season. i'm really impressed how things are going after a week of practice.

Oscar,

Try CRP. It stands for Cognitive Recognition Psychotherapy.

I had this super Hot American Indian Chick teaching it to me. She was really Kool, she even let me out of my handcuffs during our "One on One" sessions!

Oscar-
the Dolphins website has a tribute to Paul Warfield now, complete with old video of him running those smooth as silk routes.

Have you seen it?

And Jeff Ireland NFL executive of the Year.

all of my hotties are super hot, exotic, blonds, indians, arabians, latinas, all super fine, can't figure out why not one hangs around though.

Yes Aloco,

The Breast Milk post was definitely "Classic".

I give it a Four Exclamation points!!!!

Tell us more about the Apes.

For those that care i.e. ANY QB starved rabid Dolphin fans.

New England's new 3rd round Rookie QB Ryan Mallet from Arkansas that Dying Breed, myself and a few others trumpeted to the high heavens we should have snagged in the draft...

He is 8/12 for 120 yards with 1 TD and No Ints. He could have thrown another TD but the Pats decided to run it in from a yard out.

This lack of foresight will end up haunting the Fins for years to come. I am absolutely aware it's Preseason, He is vs the #2's etc...BUT, it's also his first game as a Pro. I'm also not already counting him as a Cantonite, just sayin'.

Can't imagine what this kid will do when the game slows down for him.

*Sigh* (Face palm) *Double sigh*

Cheers

YOu have to have testicles not OVARIES like Ireland has to pull the trigger on moves like getting evans. But they're still a bigger problem - HE'S GOT THE 31ST RANKED QB (see cote's blog) IN THE LEAGUE. So it doesn't matter. you have to have a qb to make a good receiver useful!!

As you know, Bipolar Disrder is the most difficult to treat for us Psychiatrists. They(the Patients) just don't see it.

Edwards was THE move!

Wow and we passed on Mallet crazy this kid is a hell of a QB


all of my hotties are super hot, exotic, blonds, indians, arabians, latinas, all super fine, can't figure out why not one hangs around though.

Brain Fart,

That happens to you too?

I mean the part about getting the super fine exotic ones, SWEET!

But hey, listen, you don't want them hanging around Man. I'm telling you. I mean, not unless their going to cook breakfeast and start your day off with a happy ending.

Other than that, they always want to spend money on stupid stuff and Kock block. Yeah man, relationships that last longer than say, a day, maybe a day and a half, yeah, they pretty much suck!

Then it's like having company stay. Company is like having fish man, after a day or two, they start to smell.

Believe me Dude, you don't want your house to start stinking like smelly fish..............

Bottoms Up!!!!

For anyone who missed it, here's the post of the day-

THE PLANET OF APE MOVIE IS OUT NOW SO ALL THE GANG OF DEFEAT HAVE TRADE IN THERE FOOD STAMPS FOR A MOVIE TICKET TO SEE THERE RELATIVES. THERE IS A SENE IN THE MOVIE FROM THE TRIAL ON MONKEY ISLAND WITH THERE HERO HYENA COWHER AND ORPAH WINFRY ALSO IS NAKED. ALL THE GANG OF DEFEAT IS JUGED GUILTY AND PUT IN GORILA JAIL AND ONLY HAVE ORPAHS BREST MILK FOR FOOD.

Posted by: ALoco | August 11, 2011 at 06:10 PM

DAMN!

I traded all my foodstamps for some heroin already.

Aloco,

You've out done yourself on this one.

Kudos to you. Who needs Soiled Bottoms when we have genius of this calibre?

Not even any gov't cheese to go with the breast milk?

How about this Mallet kid...Looks pretty sharp...Imagine that!

Look all you FO D bags you missed on Mallet and he will haunt us for years way to go Dolphins! !

Maybe next year we can trade our draft picks for Mallet. LOL!

redsky,

Me personally, I am not an Edwards fan. He drops a lot of balls. For what he would be asking for $$ wise and our QB Henne's up and down streaks with accuracy it would not be a good fit.

He and Marshall have both had some dropsies so the pair would not be a good match imho.

I am of the belief that we can buy ALL the expensive bullets (Reads WR's, RB's, TE's) we want for our gun (reads The Miami Offense) but I say we need to get a really nice GUN (Read QB) to fire them all to peak efficiency!

Cheers,

Odinseye-
You and Loco are much more fun than the TROLLer trash that's been here lately. We Fins fans NEED to Laugh, right?

Jacksonville just mailing it in vs NE....47 to 12

We wouldn't trade up for a QB, but, we did for a HB that likely won't be any better than the one we let walk, LOL...Classic

Marc is CORRECT and buzzes in first for $1000 and the Daily Double!

lol

Cheers,

The Daily Double question is:

What do you do if the owner of the team you coach and grab personnel for wants a points scoring, fan charging, exciting offense that can score in a hurry?

The Bifecta: Ummm, trade up and get a grinder Running Back?

Alex T : Ohhhhh, you were close... The answer was "Try drafting a freakin' QB!!!

This will end up boiling my blood every time NE wins with him at the helm.

Cheers,

ROB,


I AM THINKING HARD TO FORM A NEW GANG,JUST FOR AND I CAN'T COME UP WITH ANY THING .


AS FOR FINFANS72, LIFE IS SHORT LIKE OSCAR AND IS WONDERFUL LIKE YOU ,

JUST FOR YOU

Why Aloco... are we cross?

NO ONE HAVE MADE ANY MONEY IN THE STOCK MARKET THIS WEEK ..WHO WOULD PREDICT FROM MONDAY UNTIL TODAY ONE DAY DOWN 400 POINTS,THE NEXT DAY UP 400 POINTS..........


THANK GOD I AM ON THE SIDELINE ......


TODAY FAZ THE STOCK FOR SHORTING BANKS LOST 22% WHICH MEANS IF YOU HAD 1,000 SHARES FOR 70,000 YOU ENDED THE DAY LOSING 23,000 DOLLARS ,THE DB A YEAR FOOD AND RENT .

ARE WE CROSS ? WHAT THAT MEANS ROB ?

Aloco,

I have been on your side, I have gotten props for posts from you and now it appears my disdain for the way the team is being run has landed me in your doghouse.

You could make my gang the GOR gang... or as it's commonly called in the bad bad Leroy Brown part of town GANG OF REALISTS!!!

Cheers bud!
