Seattle-Miami and the real life Buffalo Wild Wings commercial.

If you’ve watched Hard Knocks you know that even the Dolphins know that they don’t have wide receivers. After trading for Anthony Armstrong, the top three receivers are Legadu Naanee, Davone Bess, and Anthony Armstrong. They also have Brian Hartline, Rishard Matthews, and Marlon Moore.

Moore is 25, and has 6 career receptions, all in 2010. Matthews had decent numbers in college but didn’t get picked until pick 227 in the draft this year. In 2010 Brian Hartline had a career high 43 rec. Devon Bess had only 51 rec last season but had 79 and 76 in 2010 and 2009. In 2010, Anthony Armstrong had big play potential, he had 44 receptions for 871 yards, a 19.8 average however last season he had only 103 receiving yards. Naanee had a career high 44 rec last year. In 5 seasons, he had 4 total TDs.

I assume that the Dolphins will start with Bess and Armstrong as the starting WRs and when they go 3 wide, Bess would move to the slot with Naanee playing the outside.

During the cuts, the Dolphins did the unthinkable. They cut 7-11. Chris Hogan, the man who is always open. So who is out there to help this receiving staff? With the Dolphins deciding to start rookie Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins might need some better option to not stifle Tannehill’s development.

Will Chris Hogan be this Hard Knocks’ Danny Woodhead?

More after the cut.

for Tebow to end up in Miami, that’s if Miami has anything to offer Denver that they want. Jacksonville would probably love to have him too.

In my opinion Peyton Manning will bring his talents to South Beach.
I believe that Peyton Manning will end up in Miami. From all of the media I’ve seen and read, it appears that Miami and the Texans are the front runners.
Tony Dungy said on Mike and Mike that he doesn’t believe that winning a Super Bowl will be the biggest factor regarding Manning’s future. Which is obviously not something that you want to hear from your soon to be star quarterback but means that just because the 49ers and Texans could be instant contenders that it doesn’t mean Manning will go there.
Being comfortable is an important factor for Manning and Miami fits that description. Manning owns a condo in Miami and moved there this off-season.  Weeks ago Reggie Wayne was doing his rounds, talking about what teams he could play for, now it seems like there is a chance of the two staying together. Wayne also lives in Florida.
Miami would be a good team with Manning. I don’t expect him to be the old Manning, going to an offense that so far hasn’t been tailored around his talents but he’s still going to be one of the top qbs. For the sake of the argument, let’s believe that Manning and Wayne end up on the same team. Miami would have Marshall, Wayne, Bess, Bush, and Fasano (who’s one of the better red-zone tight ends). With the 8th pick in the draft, if I were Miami, I’d draft someone to protect Manning, but that spot provides a lot of ways to improve the team.
It would be fun to see Brady and Manning face off twice a year for the rest of Manning’s career.
If he were to stay in the AFC, I don’t see the Jets as much of an option. For one, I couldn’t imagine Manning being comfortable in New York, plus he’d be in the same market as his brother. What would happen with Mark Sanchez? Although he hasn’t done great, the Jets invested a lot in Sanchez. If Manning came in for three years, and retired, the Jets would be back to where they started when Favre left. I guess the Jets could make the move if they think Manning is the sole difference in getting them to the Super Bowl. I would love to see how they manage to get him under the cap.
These are just my rambling opinions but whether I’m right or wrong, I believe that we will find out soon. I hear that Manning has already told the Redskins that he’s not interested in joining their team. So they better start gathering their assets to send to the Rams.

NY Jets Fans: Good News/Bad News

The good news? The Jets have let their Offensive Coordinator, Brian Schottenheimer, go.

The bad news is that this man, Tony Sparano, has been hired as your new O.C.

“Have you been watching the Dolphins? No one’s going to go to that game,” Palm Beach County Judge Timothy P. McCarthy told Topalian.

Dolphins sign RB Larry Johnson.

Johnson gained 2 yards on 5 carries last season and his last touchdown was in 2008.
