    I disagree about all these guys being camp bodies.

    Cameron Marshall RB could make the roster if he could just stay healthy for once in his life. At 100% he is probably better than Daniel Thomas.

    What is really pathetic, given the Dolphins OL situation, is that there is only one OL being signed; Jared Weaver, and he is worthless with 0 potential.

    I don;t see Isaako Aitui as camp fodder either considering Soliai and Starks may walk.

    I definitely don't see Kyle Miller as just camp fodder either. If so much was invested in Egnew, Miller would have a real shot at a roster spot.

    Spadola and Ogbuehi may be fodder, I haven't seen enough of either.

    Can anyone please tell me what the Hell is wrong with these idiots???????? When will they stop neglecting the OL?? What is it? Stubborness?? Arrogance?? Blatant stupidity??

    Why in the world didn't we poach a couple OL guys from other teams practice squads toward the end of the year so we could sign them to futures contracts?

    I hate this front office. I have never seen anything this bad, ever, and it doesn't get better, it gets worse!!!!

    How many of his games have you watched to arrive at that conclusion?

    Is Emmanuel Ogbuehi related to Cedric Ogbuehi from Texas A&M?

    It's possible, but no more than cousins if that. Cedric is from Allen, Texas and Emmanuel is from Buford, Georgia.

    nice rant. BTW, there aren't exactly many starter quality linemen sitting on other teams practice squads. most teams can barely have 5 good starters, let alone reserves. and you're complaining about the quality of practice squad players?

    Just one example, and there ARE several. I like this Harvard guy the Vikings had on their PS.http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=120586&draftyear=2012&genpos=OT

    I would much rather have Murphy in the system than Weaver. He has upside. Weaver is going to be 25 in April and is only with the Dolphins because our FO is stupid. He was dumped from two other practice squads.

    These are the kinds of things GM's and scouts are supposed to be accomplishing. It's their F-in job!

    Ya....I'm complaining about practice squad players, and so should you. There is a lot to complain about. Highly paid people are doing crappy work, or they are being just plain negligent.

    It seems like it would be simple to upgrade the OL by looking at the teams with the best OL and checking out those teams PS. At least give them a serious look. They are there for a reason. The same type logic to why NO ONE would bother looking at our PS for OL gems........our starters stink.

    A bit over simplistic, but still......
