Phins don't sell

Post by mercury22nathan on Thu Feb 02, 2017 11:24 am

just as an indication of how un-marketable the Phins current players are...

the only Phin to make the Top 50 was Jarvis Landry at 44.

Ryan Tannehill made the list last time (dead last at #50), but fell off this time.

there just isn't anyone on this team the public is clammering to buy. i guess with another winning season and a playoff run, the sales might come along.

Not really a surprise. There's no star-power on this team at all.

that and the fact that Miami doesn't go to the playoffs much doesn't help either.

I don't care. I want to see us build a winner. THEN we can worry about who sells and why or why not.

Absolutely, but part of the reason we haven't won in forever is that we have no stars. Big-time players win games in this league. We need to start drafting and developing future stars instead of just solid players and backups. Hopefully guys like Landry and Ajayi are on their way, but time will tell. Other than that, there's really no one on the current roster that fits the bill. Wake fits from a statistics standpoint, but he's not exactly a household name outside of Dolphinland.

Agreed.

Suh is pretty much invisible too, not much self promotion for one of the best DTs in the league.

We've got Landry, who doesn't score touchdowns just makes a ton of receptions.

Our other pro bowl talent is a Safety. No one other than Chancellor (or Polamalu of old) seems to get any cred at that position.

Ajayi is too new, and he really did get shut down a lot once our offensive line reached a critical mass on the injury front.

We don't really have household names at the positions the fans and league seem to drool over - QB, receiver, dominant pass rusher, elite running back. I would love to see us draft a pass rusher this year, and have him turn into a beast. We need one.

Oh, you can throw in corner too. Dominant, shut down corners usually get some press. Again, we don't have one.

Exactly. I think Ajayi is the most likely "breakout star" on the current roster, assuming he gets more consistent and continues to have big games. Doesn't hurt that he's becoming popular in fantasy football circles!

I actually hated all the bandwagon fans back during the Marino days. I want a violent team. Not a popular one. Just win.
