Post Just Curious....What if
The Dolphins kept Jake Long;Sean Smith; Vontae Davis; Carlos Dansby; Rob Burnett; Dan Carpenter; Reggie Bush & Davone Bess.

Would this be a better team than the players we have now in place of the above.

I am just curious to your opinions.

I love Brent Grimes. So Davis is expendable to me. Brandon Gibson is better than Devon Bess for sure. And so is Matthews.

However the Defense would be pretty darn good at stopping the run again, and the pass defense would probably stay the same.

Jake Long would have been better but injury concerns were legit imo. Sean Smith and Vontea Davis were not a good fit for the D scheme that is run in Miami now. I would like to think that Phins would be better against the run with Carlos and Dansby but am not convinced.
Dan Carpenter not sure. Reggie Bush was not going to be used effectively imo but I would give him and edge. Davon Bess was never really a red zone threat and his replacement was.

I think its a no brainer they are better. Keep in mind they picked up for nothing last year. I like Grimes too and he's better than Davis but I think they would've overall been a better unit.

Grimes will want major cash. Not sure Miami can afford him.

If we kept ALL of those guys, we would not have been able to afford Wallace..... granted, that makes sense in hindsight...

Miami would not be able to afford a contract extension for Cam Wake either, nor be able to afford the franchise tag for Randy Starks....

We would not be in a position to resign Starks/Soliai or both at the end of this year.

Hartline would probably walk without the extension he got too.

Jones would have never gotten his extension either, that one still has some potential

So yea, sounds great, they may have been the same, slightly better with those guys, but how bout the younger guys that WILL be contributors that got some piece of the pie in the aftermath walking and being contributors else where...

Hartline as a Patriot. Wake going on after 2013, Jones walking over to Seattle wherever, and we'd be in a make or break year with all our younger guys leaving prior to or after 2013 if we kept the leadership council.

Im happier where the team is now. Young fresh, and with a new coach, could contend for the next 5 years, not Jets style, pay for the now, and be handicapped for the future

This team can play the what if game all day long............what if Saban brought in Brees over Culpepper..............What if Sparano was fired immediately after the '10 season and Harbough was our coach............what if anyone other than Philbin was our coach.

Can't imagine where Miami would be without his production.

And we were undefeated through the first 3 weeks of this season...

Not sure if you read my post in another thread where you said this run defense was way better with Dansby and Burnett, but they gave up 132 yards per game on the ground the last 8 games of last season.

I stand by my comment.
