    Great! Good for them. As long as NE has the best team, Miami can award themselves anything they want. ;)

    Hartline himself is a helluva receiver, and I like Mike Wallace. I'd have to say on paper, I agree with him. The Pats have A LOT of questionmarks. Injured guys, guys who are injury prone, rookies. There's a lot of IFS with our receivers. IF Amendola stays healthy, IF the other receivers could learn our playbook and be productive, IF Gronk and Hernandez can stay healthy. BUT, outside of Welker and LLoyd, I like our depth receivers better than last years group.

    Don't they all suck? No AFCE team even has average WRs.

    If you look at just WR's he is likely correct, at least in terms of body of work. If you include the TE's and RB's and compare total receiving corps I could go make a case for us.

    Top 5 options

    Patriots

    Gronk
    Hernandez
    Amendola
    Dobson
    Boyce/Jones/Hawkins/?

    Dolphins

    Wallace
    Hartline
    Gibson
    Keller
    Sims/?

    I don't think either team has a definitive advantage at this point.

    In May? Yes they do.

    In September, game one? Who knows.

    In December/January? Jebus, NO ONE knows.

    Include the tight ends? Balderdash.

    Having the best receivers doesnt mean you have a quarterback who can deliver it to you......

    I don't think Hartline's point is even up for debate.

    No Jersey Selected

    On paper, the Dolphins' receiving corps looks impressive. They've re-tooled their TE position, and Wallace works well with what they do. Hartline was hard to stop last year without Wallace forcing safeties to stay deep. That being said, Tannehill is still the one throwing them the ball and I'm not all that impressed with their OL when it comes to pass protection.

    True but it is also worth mentioning that despite that Gronkowski has more touchdown catches in the last 2 years than Wallace, Hartline and Keller combined.

    All in all Hartline should feel they have the best group but in reality its something that should be evaluated at the end of the the season.

    Considering the QB situation in the AFC East he might be top 2 already. Oh well...another division title for us i guess.

    As they learned with Brandon Marshall, past achievements don't necessarily equate to production and happiness in Dolphinland.

    There should be no excuses for Tannehill though. He has the toys he wanted and they should be a couple of steps ahead of the Jets and Bills.

    Agree. It may not translate to wins, but he's right.
