    Thank you front office for your infinite wisdom.

    The dolphins have had 15 sub-par QB's since the departure of Dan Marino.


    Imagine for a moment that the year is 2008, and we draft a guy named Matt Ryan instead of Jake Long.

    Fast Forward to 2011, and we are now talking about the battle between Matt Moore and Chad Henne. (OUCH)

    Don't get me wrong. Long is an pro bowl player at one of the game's most important positions, and is also is key part to this offense. But IMO he was not worth passing up a much needed 1st round QB.

    We, the fans, and to some extent the media continually place blame on the QB’s that have failed to take control of the roster but in reality, it’s more the management of the team that has put the Dolphins in such bad shape.

    Dolphins coaches and managers simply never had a vision of what the team needed or should have been. That is why they never put an emphasis on drafting a QB.

    Thank you front office for your infinite wisdom!

    To be completely honest with you, it's not their fault for not being able to see into the future. We have one of the best if not -the- best LT in football and when they picked up Culpepper they thought they were doing what was best for the team.

    Thank you for your wisdom. I've kept a box of Kleenex for you.


    It takes discipline to not formulate opinions about something WITHOUT KNOWING ALL THE FACTS.

    "Chad Henne just needs time to learn, grow, and develop. He has shown lots of promise even though rumors are he's never had an impressive practice. We're just gonna keep blaming other problems like the offensive line, inability to run the ball, Club Liv, J-Lo, that annoying Jimmy Buffett song, and the offensive coordinator so that we can keep those Chad Henne posters above our beds."

    That's a novel perspective on this board.

    Who's talking about seeing into the future. It's understanding that NOTHING trumps finding a franchise QB, that NOTHING, NO POSITION, is more important to fill than franchise QB.

    EVERY SINGLE DRAFT PICK CAN BE A BUST. But not busting at non-QB-positions, isn't really solving anything. This regime ABSOLUTELY HAD TO RISK DRAFTING QBs AND THEY SIMPLY HAVEN'T DONE THAT.

    They've drafted 1 QB in 4 drafts - Henne (Pat White doesn't count).

    That's just not cutting it.

    If Matt Ryan was here, people would be b****ing he hasn't won a playoff game yet, and we missed out on the best LT in the game.
