    They're at it again, these Cardiac Kids disguised as the Miami Dolphins. Proving more difficult to dispatch of than even the peskiest vampires, the Dolphins breathed new life into their season with a clutch 24-17 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night in Charlotte to even their record at 5-5. This sets up another dramatic finish over the final six games as Miami looks to reach the playoffs again, a feat that perhaps would be considered even more impressive than last year's shocking turnaround from 1-15 to 11-5 and an AFC East championship.

    Well, to be fair the Trifecta did spend a nice chunk of money bringing in Free Agents to speed up the rebuilding process.

    5 of our 22 starters are free agent signings during the Trifecta Regime.

    not so much money
    nor so many free agents
    compared to the other NFL teams
    Miami basically builds through the draft
    takes 3 or 4 year to rebuild a Franchise
    we are in year two,
    the third year will be the charm
    We Will Contend in 2010!

    Yep, Kent was going on about how they acquired depth, to me that overlooks the way we jumped up to Contender status via Free Agency.

    Even more interesting (to me) is Andy Kent did not speculate on who will fill the empty roster spot vacated by Fergie.

    I guess it's potato potahto.

    can you not acquire depth via FA?

    re: ferg, maybe he just doesn't have enough of an educated guess besides the guys already on our team. in those situations it's better to keep the pen quiet

    I think we need a great Guard prospect who can also play Center at a high level, two years in row Smiley's shoulder have bothered him.

    As long as the Oline is doing it's job, those other positions can be later in the draft priorities.

    I also think we need a scat back type, a Warrick Dunn/Eric Metcalf/Dave Megget sort of player.

    We are fine at RB....we need LB badly followed by WR and DL. 'Scat back' would be great, but down on the priority list.

    I struggle to see a bigger need than ILB and NT. This team is built on stopping the run and dominating the trenches. WR and TE are the sexy picks - but our biggest problems are in the middle of our defense.

    I agree. We have the ability to score enough points as it stands right now. It is, IMO, the defense that needs to be addressed in the draft. WR and TE can be addressed by free agency.

    most depth is acquired by free agency. This way you know what your getting....not so much with the draft.....especially in the lower rounds

    It sure is nice to not have to worry about the secondary in how many years?
    Could Sperry be the TE we have been looking for?
    Also could Vince Wilfork be a target if he doesn't sign in NE? I know this group doesn't like to overpay but Wilfork is a good NT.

    Au contraire.
    I think we are actually 1 top-notch WR away.
    In order:
    MLB
    TE
    RB

    Are our needs.

    I do agree with Marty EXCEPT if Greshem is still there when we pick in the first.
    In this scenario, I would see us using rounds 2-4 or 5 on defense, primarily NT and MLB.

    I think Gresham will be there. A lot of people seem to want him and only him at the tight end position though. May I ask why? He is a seam busting tight end, which this team lacks, but he's not a very good blocker and his hands can get inconsistent.
