I dont understand the need or want for Brady ...culpepper seems to be getting thrown under the bus...Quinn did not look NFL ready in their bowl game, and i have a feeling he will be an overhyped qb with performance issues. Im tired of having slow, immobile quarterbacks in Miami, so i think its time for a change. If we can not get Russell by trading up, I hope someone grabs quinn before we do.:rolleyes2

Why pay for health insurance when you are in perfect health? In the case of Culpepper nor Lemon panning out, we do have Quinn. Also a good QB is a hot commodity that can pay in dividends later. If Cleo proves himself to be a very accomplished passer and Quinn does the same, one of them could net us a very decent return in the trade market.

Not to mention, with the 9th pick we might as well go with best player available regardless of position (even if its a RB). I don't see many draftees at positions of need (like OT and CB) that are clearly worth a top 10 pick.

Quinn is the best QB in the draft, Culpepper has not played in two years and nobody knows if he will get healthy or regain his old form, chances are not great. I like Lemon, but you can't pin all your hopes on him.

If Quinn is at # 9, he will be a Fin.

I certainly hope not. If Quinn falls to 9 though I think the Fins can get a nice package of picks.

I see it like this: CP's return to PB form looks doubtful, JH is a good backup at best, and Lemon is unproven. Why WOULDN'T the Phins look to obtain a QB in the draft?

quinn had a bad bowl game and the other top quarterback in the draft just happened to be on the opposite sideline so therefore since russel won hes the better qb? how does one bowl game decide that? especially when quinn was facing a fast and well schemed lsu defense and russel was playing against a secondary that looked like "a bunch of ******s trying to hump a door knob".quinn has had a more successful career and he was developed in a pro style offense. his offensive line this year for notre dame really wasnt that good and the irish defense just plain stunk while russel enjoyed the satisfaction of having a team in lsu that could probably of beaten OURS right now:lol: Russel is athletic... but its not like hes coming in to be vince young, hes a PASSER, hes not gonna run for 60 yards especially with the speed the nfl has in it. Quinn is not slow and immobile and has shown it in his career too, he aint no mike vick, but his speed is supposedly in the 4.7-4.8 range (about the same as russel is believed to be).

You're basing your opinion on 1 freaking game? Quinn has 2 years of experience under a pro style offense, I guess he's not ready because of 1 game:rolleyes:

Why Quinn, Becasue the fins have turned the other way for the QB postion in the draft since Marino left. Instead we get everybodys cast off. There is a resaon why these guys are being let go and dumped on the fins. They stink. It's time this franchise gets a big time QB in the draft that will be at the postion for years to come. This franchise has a turnover every year at QB. Thats why there has been no playoffs for years and horrible offensive playing. Harrington isn'rt the answer, C-pep and Lemon may or may not be the answer. If they aren't then the fins will again be looking at a qb turnover again. Get your stud now with Quinn.

What I want is an NFL proto type QB, one who has been under Weiss and one who has the best potential to be a stud!!!!:ninja:

Do you have any ties to Chuck E. Cheese? Because that's where it seems your football knowledge comes from. Basically what you are saying is that just about any QB is better than Brady Quinn (Culpepper, Lemon, Russell), which shows that you just hate Notre Dame. That is ignorant. I don't like the University of Miami or USC, but if there is a good player available for us to draft from either one of those schools, I would love to have them. That's called putting aside your biases and doing what is best for the team. You might want to look into that.

i think this is possibly the most horrible question ever!!!!! watch the low lights of daunte last year. HE SUCKS! the problem he has is not with his knee its his head and lemon is a good back up but he can not start for a whole season. This is why we desperatly need a QB and either one of the two would do. We absolutely cant pass on drew brees again. i knew it was a mistake when we did and we should be thinking about that in this years draft.

And you can't judge a player in college by either his big-game performances or his bowl games. Otherwise, Peyton Manning would have slipped to the fifth round.

And Quinn did have some nice games in the spotlight (remember against USC his junior year?).

Quinn is as pro-ready as any QB has been in a while coming out of college. He's learned in a pro-style offense at a big-time program. He's not perfect, but he brings a world of talent to the position that we haven't had since ...

It was almost magical the way Marino lasted all the way to 27 for us! Outside of Elway, none of those guys could hold Danny's jock coming out of college, but yet they all came off the board before he did. Shula was SHOCKED that Marino was there when we drafted!!!

I think that's why people - including myself - make such a big deal about that happening!! Of course in reality - a pick is a pick is a pick, it all depends on how you use them.

But the point here is sometimes it's destiny the way things happen. If Quinn falls to us after being touted as the #1 pick not long ago, perhaps that is destiny too?

I love the hypocrisy on these boards. During the NCAA football season almost everybody on these boards was hating on Brady Quinn and Notre Dame. People were saying Brady Quinn was overrated and hiding behind Weiss' name and NFL reputation. Then come draft time, Mel Kiper makes a prediction that Brady Quinn will fall in the draft and possibly end up Miami. NOW everybody is in love with Brady Quinn and sees him as our savior. I don't get it. Months ago when we didn't have a shot at getting Brady Quinn people hated him, now that we might have a chance at getting him people love him. I JUST DON'T GET IT!

We need to keep Culpepper and Lemon, draft someone in the later rounds, and use our first round pick on someone that can help us immediately.

Why go Quinn, when we have culpepper and lemon?
Its very simple, how long has Miami been making do with the QBs that are on hand without thinking of the future nor weighing those QBs benefits to the team.
Neither Culpepper or Lemon have proven anything up to this point though most of us have or had high hopes. This has been the prevailing trend for how long now? Since Marino was here we have had how many QBs, Huard, Fiedler, Lucas, Griese, Feeley, Rosenfels, Harrington,
Frerotte, Druckenmiller, Heupel, McNown, and none have proven to be our "franchise QB".
We now have a castoff from the Vikes who received a serious knee injury and is 30 years old and a third string QB who is an unproven project from San Diego and some want us to set back and rest all of our future hopes on them, without thinking of the future. Culpepper may come back strong and play great but he hasn't proven anything so far so what if? Lemon may turn out to be a good QB and play great but he hasn't proven anything so far so what if? I would hope that if anything the Dolphins have learned that they can't set back and rely on players salvaged from another team to bring us success.

Why pay for health insurance when you are in perfect health?

because the body has many needs other than just its general health. what you are saying is that your teeth may be falling out and you are almost blind and need glasses, but you would rather spend your money on another physical when the last to have proven ok instead of going to the dentist and eye doctor to take care of those problems. We have more pressing needs than qb at the moment. those can be filled by trading out of our spot if quinn falls. those picks we would pick up would be like going to the dentist and the eye doctor instead of just going to the doctor again. (i am not saying we are set at qb by any means, but we still have the chance to be so we need to draft elsewhere)

So drafting Quinn or Stanton or Russell or anybody with an early pick is not accepting the status quo which is what we have been doing every year since Miami made an attempt to get a Franchise QB in the first round with Dan Marino. I don't know why some people see trying to get a QB in the early rounds as a threat to Culpepper or an insult to Lemon. Its an attempt to get something we haven't had in a long time in Miami and that is a franchise QB.
I truly hope Culpepper comes back and lights it up and goes to the pro-bowl but until that happens I hope the Dolphins don't set back and wait to see if it happens.

Pretty broad statement there, by your anology, why even draft players because we already have all of those positions on our roster and they are better than those college players. By your way of thinking L.J. Shelton and Damion McIntosh are better than Joe Thomas and Levi Brown so we definitely don't need a left tackle in the draft.

hey if we end up drafting him i hope you are right and i am wrong. i think we agree that the fins need to adress QB through the draft at some point, i just dont think this years class warrants the fins using the #9 pick on a QB considering the other needs we have. i just dont want to see our 9 pick on the bench all year and IMO thats where quinn will be. if we draft a qb to groom lets do it with the 2nd or 3rd round picks. my choice would be stanton in the 2nd(if he is still there).

Quinn is the best QB in the draft... If Quinn is at # 9, he will be a Fin.

BQ may be the best QB in this years draft but even if Brohm were to have declared this year; it would not be as good as last years QB class.

The Dolphins have other more pressing needs. After OLB, OLT, & CB are addressed then a QB like Rowe or Kolb can be acquired.

I'd even think about resigning Justin Holland or (for today's Homer moment) signing Brett Ratliff as an UDFA.

I've heard that, yes. It's crazy how people could think our QB situation was solved w/ Woodstrock. It wasn't godawful, but c'mon!

Quinn will be 10 times better than Russell will ever be. Russell does not have a good work ethic.

I don't understand your reasoning. I mean it's not like Pep and Lemon came out and threw for 3000 yards and 25 TD's. It is like saying don't draft Joe Thomas because we have LJ Shelton.

AT 9 I am not so sure I see too many guys that are clearly worth the pick at 9. I do not want a RB. There is no way we pick a RB at 1 unless we have atrade arranged with some other team and Peterson falls to us. That will not happen so we will be looking at guys like Ginn, Jarret, Adams, Revis, Landry, Willis, and Okoye.

I hope that going RB if thats the BPA at 9 is a joke, I mean picking a RB and tying up like 40 mill in Brown and rookie for the next 4 years is completely insane.
I agree with the original poster, I dont think Quinn will ever approach Daunte at his best, not even close. Quinn will never have a season like Daunte did a couple years back. Panicking when Daunte actually played fairly well considering he was hurt badly while playing is just not smart. Daunte is coming back with a chip on his shoulder. If we give him a solid Oline and some kind of consistant running game he will be a allpro. Quinn may, MAY ever be that good but we know if Daunte is healthy he can be a MVP caliber player. Quinn however, is unproven.

I dont understand the need or want for Brady ...culpepper seems to be getting thrown under the bus...Quinn did not look NFL ready in their bowl game, and i have a feeling he will be an overhyped qb with performance issues. Im tired of having slow, immobile quarterbacks in Miami, so i think its time for a change. If we can not get Russell by trading up, I hope someone grabs quinn before we do.:rolleyes2

Culpepper's been injured in the past 2 years and could be likely to be injured again. Plus, his performance isn't exactly appealing save for one year. Lemon's a project at best. His mechanics are still way off and he needs work. Quinn is not slow and immobile. He has a 4.80 40 time according to nfldraftcountdown.com while Russell has 4.85. Quinn can scramble even though he's a pocket passer first. Plus, he's NFL ready just as Leinart was. Pocket QB's do well in this league. Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Carson Palmer, Matt Hasselbeck, Mark Bulger, and even our own Dan Marino were good QB's. Brady Quinn has a chance to be a solid possibly spectacular pocket QB in the league.
