    In the NY Giants/San Diego Chargers swap of players/pick in 2004, the Chargers were moving up from the 4th overall pick to the first.....we would be moving from the #8 or #9 spot to the 2nd, so we probably would have to give up a little more than the Chragers did in 2004?....maybe one more additional pick to do this deal. If Luck was there at #2, I would make the deal to move up and get him (If we don't get Manning or Flynn).

    This may simply be smoke screen...but if its true, I say we sell the farm for Andrew Luck and build around a franchise QB

    Nobody is buying this BS.Even if Luck didnt want to go to Indy they wont just take RGIII.They will want the farm and all the animals on it.

    What? They won't be available at 8 or 9 so the only way we can secure one of them is by trading up to the 2nd pick. It can happen we would just have to give up quite a bit man.. Im just going to wait till FA before I get all hyped up on the draft day predictions. We'll know a lot about Flynn by how We approach him.

    Stranger. Things. Have. Happened.

    Andrew Luck has a WELL-CONNECTED brain trust calling the shots for him from behind the scenes. The dolts look like a Keystone Kops organization right now and if they throw a Manning under the bus, there will be blood everywhere. I have always sort of EXPECTED that Luck would pull an Elway if he was about to be taken by a team he did not want.

    For some reason I have a vague memory of Don Shula showing a LOT of love for Oliver Luck back when he was coming out at WVA... but that was before Luck's Backyard Brawl opponent from Pitt became available. You know who I mean. Luck wound up going to the Oilers and I don't think that alliance went well. But the elder Luck may be more favorably disposed to the Dolphin franchise.
    Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.

    If indeed RG3 is taken by the Colts..... should the Dolphins pull a Giants 2004 draft day trade?

    DETAILS OF TRADE :

    • Chargers traded Manning—the No. 1 overall pick to the Giants. In exchange, San Diego received the following from New York: Philip Rivers, the Giants' third round pick in 2004 along with their first and fifth round selections in the 2005 draft.

    San Diego selected the following players with the additional draft picks they acquired in the deal:

    • 2004 third round pick: Kicker Nate Kaeding
    • 2005 first round pick: Outside linebacker Shawne Merriman
    • 2005 fifth round pick: Traded to Tampa Bay who traded pick to St. Louis Rams

    ------------------------------


    So the Giants gave up several picks and...THIS IS IMPORTANT.........the GIANTS REFUSED TO SETTLE FOR A DIFFERENT QB. The Giants could have easily just kept their picks and selected Philip Rivers. They refused and went after the top prospect! Two Super Bowl victories later, Eli Manning has 2 Super bowl MVP trophies and is headed to the hall of fame when his career is over.



    So, should the Dolphins just refuse to settle for these other QB's in this draft? Trade the farm and get Andrew Luck?

    I say yes.
    Manning refused to play for the Chargers and they had no choice but to trade him to the Giants...........
