House cleaning is a good thing!

In case you're not keeping track (ridiculous because all of you are huge Dolphins fans and have no lives) the Dolphins are pretty much clearing the decks this offseason.

Seth McKinney, Kevin Carter, and Bennie Anderson are gone. Before it is over, Jeno James, Dan Wilkinson, Jeff Zgonina, Travares Tillman, Kendyl Jacox, Joey Harrington and a handful of others will be outta here as well.

The team also might not re-sign Darian Barnes, Damion McIntosh, David Bowens, Mike Lehan, Keith Adams, Toniu Fonoti, and Donnie Spragan, and might welcome back Sammy Morris and Travis Minor only at minimum-salary type deals.

With the exception of Bowens, who I think is a good backup, I think Randy Mueller is finally doing what Nick Saban should have done in 2005. He's getting rid of a lot of junk.

He's starting from scratch.

Thank You, Lord.

The brilliance of this roster revamping is so simple it astounds that no one carried it out before. It goes like this: The Dolphins have been awful for some time now. They were 6-10 last year. They haven't made the playoffs since 2001.

So the team needs recycling more than last week's newspaper.

With that coming recycle the Dolphins are about to get younger, they're about to get faster, and they're about to get a different attitude as the old players with the old attitude go someplace else.

Notice it doesn't say here they're about to get better. Fact is, a younger team may very well get worse results on the field next season. But you know what? That's good!

Another 6-10 or worse season will give the Dolphins another top 10 pick next year and higher picks throughout the draft. That will add more youth, and more viable young talent if they do their draft homework. It should also offer a better salary cap situation.

One of Miami's weaknesses for a long time was that it was consistently good. The Dolphins always hovered around 8-8 to 10-6. That kept them from becoming great because the lower picks simply didn't bring the kind of talent Miami needed to reach the next level.

So maybe taking one step back now will mean taking several steps forward in the future. And if it doesn't, what will have the Dolphins have effectively done with this refurbishment project?

They will have trashed a 6-10 team. If you ask me, that's not an altogether bad thing.

Your thoughts?

Armando, MIA didnt unload any real impact players...they unloaded "dead" weight. So I can't agree that they are taking "any" steps back. They actually seem priming themselves for a push at Kris Dielman by cutting (Mckinney,James,and Anderson) and not re-signing(DMac,Fonoti,or Jacox). As well as Joey Porter by cutting (Carter) and not re-signing (Bowens,Spragan,Vickerson, or Traylor).

I agree with you it has been a long time coming for them to get rid of a bunch of these players. I also agree that Bowens can be a decent enough backup. However, it is a good set of moves that finally acknowledges that the team needs to move on and reload. That being said, I truly hope management (the owner) remembers this happenes and does not fire Cameron before the roster has time to turn over.

I also think the point you made about not being able to get a lot better bc always being consistantly mediocre is very true. Plus, Wanny traded away half his picks every year for junk so the draft did almost nothing anyway.

Armando, I agree a purge is in order. I have often thought that Miami hurt itself by being a perennial 10 win team. It makes you have a world of respect for Don Shula to be able to do it consistently over a 30 year career.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do when part of you is ill is to amputate the dead tissue. now all these guys aren't bad players but some aren't giving out to make up for what they are taking in. If we can get Dielman and Porter it would be a good move towards getting well. We need experience but we need youth badly. NE "trimmed the fat" a feww years ago and sucked for a few years but then youth weighed in with the growth spurt and they don't suck too bad right now.

Trent Green might be an add if they can get the money right because he plays but teaches at the same time to the other QBs.

In the NFL you are too young for the first 4 years then you are great for 4 years and then you are still good but older and slower and may not be worth the cap hit for the next 4 years. The problem this year is most of RFA/UFA are in that last group but most weren't that good in the second part.

We need some solid players but we don't need to go "all in" on 2 players. We need to know when to hold and when to fold

Being consistently good and having low draft picks hasn't hurt the Patriots or the Colts, so I don't agree with this assessment. What has hurt the Dolphins in the past several years is simply not having *enough* draft picks. It doesn't always matter where they fall, a team can't stock up on young players if it doesn't have the picks to get them.

How do you know they are getting younger. Saban did the same thing. Got rid of a bunch of people (surtain, madison, feeley, etc) and got a bunch of new people.

I don't buy any of this until I see actuall improvment in the W column. This is what every coach does when they take over but not necessarily for the better.

I hope this time is different, but I've learned that unless we see them on the field I won't hold my breath

At this point in the offseason it's good to see some changes. I don't mind seeing most of those players go. I still htink harrington is better than any available quarterback, but his cap figure is too high for how he has performed. If they can restructure a deal then that'd be great. Porter is a fine player, but he's no sprung chicken himself. if the team wants to get younger, then bringing him in doesn't make quite as much sense as you might think. He's still good though there's no doubt about that. I like Boss Bailey at weakside linebacker and then Crowder at strong side myself, but there are some better options. I personally think I biggest glaring need besdies the offensive line is our secondary. We need a solid corner, if there is such a thing anymore and a strong safety. I think we could address the safety in the draft with LaRon Landry, but perhaps 9 is too high. Then again who knows what is going to change since the draft is still a long ways away. Lastly i say forget about Diehlman Steinbach is the better player. He might command a big time salary, but nothing more than what we just saved by releasing Kevin Carter.

Well it looks like you hit on target when you say we are goin to suck next year, and I repeat at least on paper. If we loose DMac who's gonna come up for LT? If you loose Traylor who's the new NT? It looks like Miami has some youg faces who can step in, but that is a major question mark, so as you're old pal use to say, we'll see!

Well said, Armando. We can either try to win it all now, or we can take a hit for a season or two, in order to win and keep winning for years to come. We've been down that first road for way too long, I think it's high time we try other route. New head coach, new power structure, why not do it?

Who is going to play LG if we don't get one of the guys that will be targeted? Anyway, the team did need a purge, but your blog has a little bit of history revisionism in it. The decent records didn't kill the team as much as the pathetic drafts. We had chances at good players over and over again and instead picked injury riddled players or busts like Yatil Green, John Avery, Jamar Fletcher, and Eddie Moore. Teams can find gems in the draft without being in the top 5 of every draft. If that strategy was all it took the Lions would be a dynasty by now. It hasn't helped this franchise either that morons like Rick Spielman traded away high draft spots for below average players like AJ Drama Queen Feeley and Where Are You Now Lamar Gordon!

I may be a minority here. But I actually think the Phins will surprise you all. They are going to be younger and faster. Sabin I think was just plain afraid to give the rookies a try. IE Jason Allen. I really do not think he would have (even with the rookie mistakes) been worse then what we had. Come on folks just two years ago we had(R-Brown) the second pick. And this year we are 6-10 and picking 9. So we are still a 6-10 team. I think younger and faster will make us at the very least a respectable 8-8 maybe 9-7. Then if Cam can reduce the sacks and turnovers, and run a little more effectively, I really think we can be a 10-6 or even shall I say 11-5 team. After all being old and slow we still beat NE and almost came close to beating Indy.

I think Cam looks at the Phins the same way I have been. Our week link was along the line and WR. While he still has not made and changes with the WR crew just look at the cleaning house he is doing on both sides the ball along the line. EH!!

Thanks

Armando,

Your scenario is rather simplistic for a complex situation. There are way too many variables in play.

Why would any free agents come to Miami if they organization appeared to be "rebuilding" for the next two years?

The draft is obviously not a sure thing no matter how high or low you pick. I agree with a previous poster in regard to New England. They have picked low for quite some time and still manage to draft quality players (getting Maroney was absolutely brilliant). Just think of the number of quality players that are currently on the roster that were not 1st round picks.

Another issue is playing the right players that we currently have. I could see that Yerimiah Bell was a player a long time ago, what took the coaches so long to recognize it? And to keep acting as if Chambers is a quality #1 receiver is a huge mistake.

I think it is possible to try to win now, just as long as you do it intelligently which to me means you don't mortgage the future for now, and draft wisely. (I know, easier said than done).

It's about time that someone who could see the personnel problems finally has the authority to start fixing it. Thanks to Cam and Randy there's agreement on truly starting over. I say keep getting rid of the dead weight and marginal players that haven't allowed us to get better. Looks like they were speaking the truth about accquring draft picks. Regardless of who's available at #9 we'll have a need at several different positions, so choose the best player on the board, we can use him!

Armando, I do not totally agree with you. I do agree that is needed to rebuild and get rid of all the junk, but I do not agree that in order to rebuild you need to have a top 10 pick on the draft and have a couple of miserable seasons, if not Detroit would be a Super Bowl winner by now.

Sure it helps to have a couple of top 10 picks, but it is more helpful to be more intelligent and wise on contracts and evaluations, tell me how NE signs Adalius Thomas? How did SF draft Frank Gore (picked 30 spots after Ronnie Brown) and lead the NFC in yards? Why did you choose Culpepper vs. Brees? How do you trade any draft picks for Gordon or Feeley?

Let's see how it goes now, mmmm... we get rid of three guards and our LT and now Dielman and Steinbach are gone and the Bills "help" the league to put a standard on 7-million a year for unknown offensive linemen, so I believe free agency for OL seems will not work now... what to do now? Trade McMichael for Draft Picks? OK trade him, but who will play TE?

I feel sorry for Zach and Jason, here is an advise for you: if you want to know how does it feel to win playoff games and possibly championship, demand to be traded, because this rebuilding process seems to be long...

What did Joey Harrington do to the Dolphins to make them string out his inevitable release and thereby delay his ability to start looking for another job? Why didn't they release him Thursday so he could start contacting other teams immediately? Is Cameron/Mueller's idea to stick it to Harrington for some reason?

it was a good thing 3 years ago, armando...now it's just an overdo thing. but, at least the fins have finally comes to their senses and started the necessary purge and replenish cycle. it would've been nice to have another handful of high draft picks from the previous several years on our roster instead of the two or three we do have.

Im pretty sure that is just a rumor buddy. If the Pats tried to sign Wes Welker they would owe us a second round pick because he's a restricted free agent.
As far as Joey harrington is concerned, the dolphins are probably delaying his release either because they are trying to trade him for something(unlikely) or they are trying to see if they can restructure his contract (a paycut)

Armando...
I said earlier that they should go this way in picking and releasing players. You are correct also in our draft scenario, we never get the high drafts due to our playing 8-8 or better. Dallas got better because of their 2-14 season, and the one or two other bad seasons.

I also agree with others that just because the player is high in the draft makes him the perfect player. Spotting the diamond in the rough and bringing out his ability is the issue here.

Another concern is having the personnel necessary to bring about the refining of players is not here. We have no veteran QB to bring a newly drafted QB to the professional game. Dan Marino had Bob Greise, Don Strock, and David Woodley to aid in his transition. It is a matter of great importance to draft a good experienced QB to run the team, and work along side our rookie QB. Its a new year, a different coaching situation, so we have to trust Cameron knows the quality of coaches he has brought with him to this team.

I like whats happening here with Cameron and Mueller, but I hope they have made the correct choices in the coaching staff that are capable of bringing out the best in all the college and free agency drafts. I believe a guy that has played poorly, can sometimes become a outstanding player when he receives the proper training.

Harrington for example, would have done better if he had have better training in Detroit, and here. Our offensive line and receivers did not give him the protection and assistance he needed. No QB would have looked good last year the way the whole offense played and supported the QB.

As what has been said, the bottom line is to relieve our dead space and bring someone that can and wants to be productive.

Good job Armando

I agree that salary cap prep work seems to help good teams become great but 6-10 again is not the answer. If the Dolphins let Welker go, they better have Ginn ready in the first round. Welker was the only Dolphin to catch a clutch ball last year.

it's pretty obvious that the dolphins can't sign these players because they still have far too much cap space tied up in over-paid,under-performing duds!also the better free agents want to play for a winning team!why should they be in need of a qb,even considering using the ninth pick on one,when they have one of the highest paid qb's in the league on their roster?ditto wide receiver!they probably have the leagues highest paid starting duo of wideouts!why even consider using a high pick on one?they handed a castoff left tackle a big contract last year and last time i checked he was still on the roster,why would they need another one?and anyone who thinks they will okay at corner is dreaming!their three top corners combined for 3 picks last year!how many times was wil allen flagged last year?i'd say at least twenty!this team is a "total mess" as one veteran sports writer put it,i see only maybe a dozen players on this team worth keeping,and it sounds like they will lose one in welker!i truly fell sorry for zack and jason!

I think the Cam and Mueller show is going to be the biggest laughingstock yet at this rate.
They highly underestimated the value of Welker, too lazy to sign him to a contact they just gave him a tender and now he is gone.
Kevin Carter should have had his contract re-done -- he is better than what they will not get out there. Miami will regret his loss, especiallly when they also lose Bowen because of smugness egged on by overcritical reporters like yourself.
Sammy Morris, only one of Miami's best special teamers. Where is Ricky? Yes, you reporters like to criticize but as Saban said in parting words Ricky can win a few more games himself just by being on the field. "He has a presence," said Saban. Yet, Cam acts like a retard who can't chew gum and talk at the same time and says we only "focus" on what we got.
Brady Quinn is not the answer! He looks like a future average NFL QB at best. He will be on the ash heap of QB history along with other highly sought college QBs who turned out lame. Harrington was the third person taken in his draft --and he is a complete flake. Culpepper has legendary stuff in his fabric but is treated like a bum by the Miami scene. What you smokin?
Now, Miami wants to trade McMichael, one of the top 6 or so tight ends in football because he dropped a few passes and his salary is high. The $4 million Miami pays him is a bargain in the current free agent signing crop. As would have been Carter at $5 million.
Miami was picked to go to the Super Bowl by such reputable, credible football watches as Sports Illustrated! The team had most of the parts it needed to take that step -- just needed more luck and better offense play calling, in my view.
If you folks got off your deluded duff and criticized Cam and Muler half as much as you did Saban for his cockiness we would be living in a Dolphin paradise. As it stands, amateur football watchers such as the Miami Herald reporter here are encouraging a complete idiotic earthquake that will dig the Dolphins into an unnecessary hole for years to come.
Stupid.

Right on Armando - This is the first year I can remember where we have a net gain in draft picks and the fins are sitting tight during free agency initially. There will still be some good middle level players at a good price and maybe a trade or two for some draft picks. For the first time in 10 or more years I like what the fins are doing in preparation for the draft.

Who knows - maybe we'll be the pleasant surprise of the division ala the jets and Mangini next year.

You have spouted that off before and were corrected and you still continue to do it. Griese retired in 1980. Marino was drafted in 1983.

Bob Greise sat in the box during the game giving offensive play suggestions after his retirement. Get your shit right. What planet are you from that you do not remember Greise aiding the offense by giving plays as others do today.

Marino did not play with Greise, but Greise sat in the box giving play calls during the game when Marino played. He may have not been on the field playing next to him, but he was an advisor to him. What is it you do not understand... If you do not know what your blabbing about shut up.

Did I really just say that Cam and Mueller were going to be the laughing stock of the league? Man, I'm never drinking like that again. What I meant to say was, that Randy and Cam are finally getting around to a long overdue house cleaning. Which is something the last guy who held the job should've done when he got he two years ago. However, just like his two predecessors before him, felt that the "band aid theory" was going get the job done.

What was I thinking when I said, that Miami highly underestimated Welker's value? I mean, I appreciate everything Wes has done and has meant to this franchise, but who would have thought that a team would be willing to give up a 2nd round pick for a 3rd WR and PR/KR Specialist? Plus with the offer of 7 years and $38.5 million dollars on that offer sheet staring right at Wes, how could Wes say no? Besides this WR Class is real deep, so it seems logical that we use one of our extra picks on a WR in the draft. Besides, as much as we all love Wes. Wes doesn't possess the one thing our GM wants from our receivers, and that's SPEED!

Has anyone else notice that the Patriots are acting very, well, not like themselves lately. Holy crap they signed an expensive free agent who will be 30 before the season starts and just way overpaid wes welker. We all love Wes Welker but he's not worth 5.5 million a year and a 2nd round draft choice. I think this is both good and bad news. Bad news because the Pats are going to be as good if not better than ever next year. (hard to imagine right?) Good news because they seem to be in the mood for making poor long term cap decisions. Combine these deals with the fact that their other great players will be looking for new contracts in the next two years and they very well could be in a pickle. But of course this is all wishful thinking. Ehhh...

Decisive action with clear goals and objectives have been absent in the Dolphins organization for a long long time. The Dolphins will be well served to emulate organizations like Denver and New England which operate and make decisions within a consistent philosophical framework.

Cutting McMichael at this point was stupid. Maybe he is overpaid but right now he just became the best free agent tight end by far. And with all the ridiculous spending that has been going on 4 million a year doesn't sound that bad. David Martin surely isn't the answer. We have too many holes to be cutting above average players.

I just saw a report that Joey Porter signed with us. 5 year $32 mil. pending that he passes his physical. He'll add some toughness and skill to the LB corps. He's a huge upgrade over Spragan, I just think he talks a little too much sh!t. I'm sure if he lays out Tom Brady I'll warm up to him. If he's healthy its a good signing. (I think he was a little banged up last year.)

...not sure why it won't let me sign on

I thought rebuilding with youth and fresh attitude is what Nick
was going to do and when He didn't I felt We were sunk. Guess what! I was right. I think Cam's doing it right. Of all the players to go, Wes (to Me) is the biggest loss because He gave everything, every play. As for Randy, Kevin, Seth, and the others, fresh new legs and young stable talent is the way to get to the big dance. Maybe not this year but soon!!

billy joe bob... your a fucken asshole just like the rest of these big mouthed idiots here. You nothing about sports, you do not know how to correctly write or spell yourselves, and your so buried deep in your own bullshit you can't think, or talk for yourself.

All of you think your so fucking smart... well why didn't you know Saban would fuck you in the ass? Why didn't you know Bree's would play outstanding this year and fucking Culpepper sitting on his ass.

You read a page and that is all you know... or you think you know all the facts because you memorize the ones mentioned in the books or papers. Before you knock anyone, learn to fucking think for yourself instead of licking the same shit bowl everyone else did who thought Saban & Culpepper were taking us to Super Bowl... talk about asshole stupidity. Who's band wagon are you fucken drones following this year?

The funny thing is... we're here to get the inside news... and Armando gets it from the places we can go... so what the hell is he here for? That's right... idiots like you!!

My apologies to Hank, nydolfan84, the Dude, Finnman, and a few others who are educated and have more class than you screw ups.
