    HUH? What is your definition of elite?

    You realize that Tannehill had a great year and is a top 10 at worst QB in the league, AJ Brown is an elite WR1 right?

    Tannehill threw for almost 4000 yards.

    I think bottom 10 is silly. Average to slightly above is more likely.

    Evans is our best kept secret. No wear on those legs last year. You will see more Evans this season.

    Henry will be fine for 2, 3, maybe 4 more years..Evans still an unknown but I like the effort he showed

    I would sign Duke Johnson, cheap, catches well and could provide a breather

    I never said tannehill didn't have a great season, or that AJ brown isn't elite, stop putting words in my mouth to start an argument.

    The fact is it remains to be seen what this offense looks like without Henry, or even with a less effective Henry. And based off of what we saw with Tanne in Miami we're likely closer to bottom 10 than top 10.

    I hope so, because I would rather see Evans/McNichols or Foreman get the load of carries first half of the season and then let Henry loose the second half of the season. No need stat padding anymore when it comes to Henry. Use him wisely the first half of the season (if the record and play of other starters gives us the opportunity).

    The only thing that will make Henry's game decline is contigent of who our #2 WR and #1 TE will be.

    On paper Corey Davis, Jonnu Smith and Adam Hump is more than enough to keep 8 men out the box.

    If all 3 are gone, then it could be a pretty basic year for Henry. Let's hope we can address those positions. It shouldn't be that hard either.

    This is true. But there is nothing we can do about that this year. We have to count on Henry and try to improve the team in other ways. If he bombs this year it will be a long year. The next year we can try to cut him and figure it out. But there is just nothing we can do now. That is why I reacted negatively. Sorry for being an ass in my first post. This just seems like an issue we can’t address now.

    Without Henry, Tannehill would likely regress. I think that is his point.

    RBs are available every draft. I wouldn't write off Evans.

    Yes. Which I just flatly disagree with. I think Henry benefits from THill. Defense have to respect the ability to throw it down field. Mariota didn’t, so defenses stacked the line.

    Bottom 10 offense is silly.
