    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.

    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.

    Given that the Pats receiver corps is in serious transition Miami's corps also somewhat in transition could well be better. We'll see. It's good to have some challenge within the division. NY is pathetic throughout and Buffalo outside the RB position just isn't there.

    Have to agree with you here....Thus far (which probably means nothing) the Doofins DO have the better WR corps.....We have question marks all over the roster. Hartline is awesome and dependable.....Wallace is a very talented receiver that can stretch the field and make big time, acrobatic catches.....NOW HERE IS THE KICKER......It will all come down to the guy that is THROWING THEM the ball......Tannehill is a pretty big question mark himself and was very pedestrian to almost "sanchezian" last year.....(alright that was low....but u gotta love the "sanchezian" term there ;) Anyways....we shall see how well that "tandem" works out for them with Tannehill throwing to em...... GO PATS!!!!!

    You can tell Miami has a great WR corps by the stellar offensive rankings these receivers has last year with their various teams.

    Nothing says elite like being in the bottom third of the league in every statisitical category.

    Mike Wallace single handedly helped Pittsburgh rank in the mid 20's in points scored and turnovers.

    That's elite.

    We will also have to see how Jonathan Martin performs in place of 4 time pro bowler Jake Long on the left side of the line in protecting Tannehill.

    It does not matter if Tannehill has Jerry Rice and Randy Moss in their primes and on the outside....he won't succeed in that offense and consistently move the chains if he is constantly on his back.

    I'm a huge Gisele fan, but Tannehill has the best looking wife of all of the QBs in the AFCE, if not the NFL. Absolutely stunning.

    You could always sign Tannehill's wife and Gisele and run two tight end sets all day........in your fantasy league atleast.

    Why do people continue with the BS about Amendola not being able to stay healthy? It's not true. And please don't give me the crap about only playing in 1 game in 2011. The reason he didn't play in more is because the Rams tried to rush him back from the injury and they ended up getting him hurt again in practice so they had to IR him. And last year? Yeah. It's such a common injury to break your clavicle and have it almost sever your aorta... I mean, you hear about that sort of injury all the time.. Right?

    Freak injuries does not make one injury prone.
