Jonesin for a cure….

When you take a look at the entire Miami Dolphins Defensive unit and you look for a weakness or an area to exploit, you don’t have to look any further than the Free Safety position. It’s been evident since Brock Marion left us, and has been filled in with stop gap players ever since.

Renaldo Hill was the best player we had at the position since then, and that is not saying anything.  Opposing teams will continue to line up with 4 to 5 WR sets or double TE spread wig until we do something to address this aspect of the field.

Now there has been a lot discussion and debate about our current starter on the team, Chris Clemons, and based on my opinion I don’t think he is the answer; another stop gap player that has been giving us time to either look somewhere else or develop from within.

    Great read and I agree with you. Last year Tony stated on almost every post practice media session, what an impact Clemons was making. Well, we didn’t see that on the field at all.
    The dark horse to win this position would be Jones, but don’t be surprised if they bring someone in.

      YO YO – I hope they do, and the player i would like to see brought in is DeAndre McDaniel

    Yo Bahamas,

    Excellent written article. You really did your homework. Agree it might be time to either cut lose some cash for a FA they like or put more emphasis on the safety position in the next draft.

    We did spend a #1 on Vontae Davis in an effort to improve the secondary, but I know that doesn’t help the FS position. I have a couple of questions for you.

    1. On average, just how early of a draft pick do you think is warranted for a FS? I can see a 1 or 2 rounder for a CB, but anything more valuable than a 4th for a FS seems high. I might be wrong.

    2. Assuming the time between a CBA being settled upon and the beginning of the season, who do you see getting the most playing time at FS? Is Jones the guy?

    By the way, if you think the organization has mostly ignored the FS position, take a look at the TE.

    I was happy when we drafted Jones, mainly because he was one of the few players I had on MY board that we took! Granted I thought he was a 6th or 7th round selection… Then again, we didn’t have any 6th round picks and we DID take him with our second 5th rounder…

    Seriously? I think you watched the 2009 season by accident. 2010 is when the Dolphins pass defense finished 8th in the league. You don’t finish 8th in the NFL if you are getting bad play at free safety.

      I dont think you understand…yes we did finish with the 8th but still teams continued to expose us on our back court…look at Pitt, Patriots, Detriot, Steelers game tape…watch Greg Jenning school Davis and not get any over the top help.

      I can understand where you are coming from, but the truth is in the game film my friend…
