    lphins screwed up!!!! They let the top 3 guards sign elsewhere!!! Beadles, Shwartz, and Asamoah…How can they not pick up atleast one of these guys??? Now?? Slim pickings.. Nice job Hickey… Only have 3-4 spots to fill on the OLine… Now we have Albert at LT and Pouncy at C.. Need 2 guards and a RT!!! Yes you might get one rookie you draft to start… But you can’t expect them all too… Needed atleast 1 Guard in FA.. And the top Gs are off the board…. Screwed up Hickey!!!???????
