    Hoos, that was phenomenal. Major props. Even your misses were slight and actually pretty logical. I don't think you were "way off" about anything. Impressive.

    I wasn't happy with getting stuck with Pouncey at 15 but who else could we have taken at that spot that would be able to contribute to the team as much as he would?

    I'm sure we tried to move down but there were no takers so we did what made the most sense for the team.

    BTW, major props on your projections. That's as close to spot-on as you can get when it comes to the draft.

    Mallett at 15 sounded great before the draft. Now, not so much. If NE didn't draft him, he probably would of fell out of the 3rd round as well. Obviously, teams knew more than we did to fall that far. Still would of much preferred him with our 2nd rounder though.

    Ireland admitted to never picking up the phone to even find out if we could work out deals.

    Do you really want to be the one to call then find out a team isn't interested? It looks desperate and needy. Everyone knew we wanted to trade down, and no one was interested.

    desperate and needy??? more like due diligence...someone could have offered up a bounty to trade out...you don't know if you don't try...i hope at least that prior to the draft he let everyone know he might be willing to trade down if he didn't call people during the draft...

    The Dolphins didn't have an opportunity to trade out of the No. 15 overall selection, according to Ireland. "The phones weren't ringing so we took the pick," Ireland said. "When the phone doesn't ring you kind of lose your leverage if you're calling around. 'Do you want this pick, do you want this pick.' That's not the way I do it. They have to want the pick before you can trade. And the phone wasn't ringing."

    Way to make things happen, Ireland. ****ing idiot.

    You think NE was the only team out there smart enough to see that plum ? Seriously ?
