I have more faith in those 2 in regards to our QB position than I ever did in Sparano/Henning.

    Obviously Peyton Manning is a wildcard factor and that goes beyond on the field and future promise, thats about selling tickets and potentially getting the all time record holder in several categories when it is all said and done. We can cross that bridge later.

    For me, I probably like Flynn the least out of everybody but I like the fact that he wouldn't cost us anything in draft compensation. However with that being my reasoning . . . I rather draft our guy with that first round pick, find a way to get Weeden or trade up for RGIII/Luck (obviously depends on cost) over Flynn. Atleast if Flynn is a Dolphin I'm comfortable with Philbin being the one he is tied to. I would hate him coming here if Sparano was here.
    Agree with everything you said. I know this is a message board and we are supposed and expected to say what we would do, but like you said, "Philbin knows Flynn and Sherman knows Tannehill" and their future as HC and OC are tied with their decision. If they are sold on them, so should we.

    The only thing Flynn would cost us if he doesn't pan out is a cap hit in the future, the same if we sigh Manning, so it doesn't really matter.

    IMO we should sigh Manning, keep Moore and draft a 1st round QB either trading up to RGIII or sticking with Tannehill, that way we have an great QB to groom the rookie and a serviceable backup if nothing works.
    Hoping for the best but expecting the worst...

    I think the articles you pasted imply that the west coast offense will influence our offense, no need to paste more. We don't seem to agree, nothing wrong with that.

    The reporters are making the conclusion but when Philbin responds he clearly says it will have no influence.

    Philbin then states his vision of the offense will be more spread offense in which again I believe is a complete different style compared to a west coast offense.

    In other words a west coast offense is more of a traditional prostyle offense that just utilizes more 3 WR sets, double TE formations and RB pass routes as checkdowns IMO. Thats why GB was so pass happy because they were loaded at WR and TE, they abused the RB screen due to not being able to run the ball effective.

    The WCO utilizes your skill player talent compared to spread offense that utilizes formation match ups.

    The 49ers won five Super Bowls, three under Walsh and two with George Siefert. With the success piling, other took notice. The system found its way to Denver, where the Broncos had failed in three previous Super Bowl appearances.
    That changed when coach Mike Shanahan installed the West Coast offense, leading the Broncos to titles in 1997 and 1998.
    "I have no idea what the West Coast offense means anymore," Shanahan said recently with a light chuckle. "I use to know 20 years ago when Bill Walsh used the term. Back then it was one formation, three and five step drops. That was pretty standard on what they did. Everyone that's taken off from that organization has went in a different direction. That's why I'm not sure what the definition is anymore."
    The offense uses short, horizontal passing routes and running plays to stretch out defenses, creating the opportunity for big plays. When Philbin was hired by the Packers in 2003, the West Coast offense was already in Green Bay.

    P.S. If you read the entire article Philbin shuts this WCO in miami myth down several times.

    You're essentially saying that there isn't an offense in the entire league that runs the West Coast Offense. If that's the case then no the Dolphins will not run the West Coast Offense. They'll run an offense similar to the offenses of teams that are generally said to run the West Coast Offense.

    IMO Moore and Flynn are the same exact QB and Ill actually give a slight edge to Moore for obvious reasons.
    And I'm quite sure Philbin knows Flynn better than any Packer fan, and in that I will rely. I don't know Flynn well enough to be sold on him, but I will trust Philbin on this.

    Tannehill intrigues me, and certainly seems like a serious option as well......Weeden is another option. I expect one of these three guys to be a Miami Dolphin.

    Its amazing to me, last preseason I was arguing with many Dolphin fans that Moore was better than Henne, now many Dolphin fans actually think Moore is a viable option to start for this team.

    That being said......I want an upgrade over Moore, I see him as a great backup.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    I'm not sold on any QB that we may have access to ...

    But we need to try several QB Candidates every year until we get a Franchise QB.

    That said ... bring on Flynn ... then we can maybe get another QB Candidate in the Draft, & fill some other glaring needs/holes.

    Any combo that gets QB Candidates & fills needs/holes is fine by me!! ... and Flynn doesn't cost a Draft pick, but important Salary Cap.

    Not a glowing endorsement, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
