Holy Crap, Miami May Be Good for a Long Time

4 May

Not many candles on these cakes.

DEFENSE
NT Randy Starks – 26
DE Jared Odrick – 22
DE Kendall Langford – 24
OLB Koa Misi – 23
OLB Cam Wake 28
ILB Karlos Dansby – 28
ILB Channing Crowder – 26
CB Sean Smith – 22
CB Vontae Davis – 22
FS Reshad Jones – 22 (Or Clemons – 24, Culver – 26)
SS Yeremiah Bell – 32

OFFENSE
QB Chad Henne – 24
WR Brandon Marshall – 26
WR Brian Hartline – 23
WR Davone Bess – 24
TE Anthony Fasano – 26
OT Jake Long – 25
OT Vernon Carey – 28
OG John Jerry – 23
OG Richie Incognito – 26
C Jake Grove – 30
RB Ronnie Brown – 28
RB Ricky Williams – 32

So let me get this straight, we’ve only got two guys above 30 who will regularly see the field. One of them just had 1,400 total yards and 13 touchdowns, and the other just played in the Pro Bowl?

Okay, The Bottlenose is officially a believer. The average age of the above players is only 25. But a lot is riding on Odrick, Misi, Jerry and Jones. If those four manage to fall somewhere between good and great, the Patsies and Jets better get used to the wild card.

Just a little concern about our running back situation. Ronnie’s 28 with the body of a 32 year old (and a contract coming to an end ). Ricky’s 32 with the body of a 28 year old, but has one eye on retirement. Just an area we need to look at. Not sure if Cobbs or Hilliard are of the stud variety.

    Who knows what Kory Sheets might be able to do????

    • danewen May 4, 2010 at 7:24 pm #

      Agreed. Lots of young potential on the bench. Sheets, Edds, Moses, Merling, etc.

        I agree there is lots of hidden talent on our team and i think merling could turn out o be agood player soon

      I like Sheets a lot, from what I’ve seen. Remember watching him -w- the 9ers preseason — great mix of speed and power. Playing at Purdue probably didn’t help, but it might be interesting to see him mixed in with the Wildcat now that he’ll have an entire offseason to get the system under his belt…

        I hope Sheets can make some noise. I thought Dorin Dickerson would’ve been a great pick in the 7th, instead of grabbing our 90th linebacker. Henne is a legitimate gunslinger, and the more dangerous targets we can hand him the better.

    Wow, hard to believe that Yeremiah is the same age as Ricky. Definitely need some of these safeties to develop.

    Maybe the best RB on the team is Hilliard ? From what I’ve seen, he runs with power speed and has some nice moves. He catches all his targeted passes and blocks like a FB. Can’t wait to see him get more reps this season. Sure he will be there after Ricky or/ and Ronnie are gone next season.

    • danewen May 4, 2010 at 9:08 pm #

      Hard to tell with only 60 carries in Hilliard’s career. He has a 3.8 ypc average. Cobbs is at 5.2, but that may be padded by wildcat magic. Obviously they both have some ability. I personally haven’t seen that spark, but one or both of those guys may be the reason we completely ignored the position in both the draft and our free agent signings afterwards.

    Yeah I think the phins are going to be sweet and i think Hilliard actually might be a decent back but i still think we should draft someone like Mark Ingram,Deion Lewis or Lamichael James in the next few drafts.
