    You don't get very many chances to legitimately pick a real good quarterback and so it's not like the Dolphins have had that opportunity every year and just screwed the pooch every time. The Dolphins have had two genuine opportunities at elite quarterbacks, both passed up on by Nick Saban. It's looking like there's a chance Matt Ryan may be a third guy, but in order to get into that category Ryan will have to play well in the playoffs for once.

    I also would have had no regrets taking Aaron Rodgers at #2 overall in the 2005 NFL Draft. Everybody has hits and misses, especially when you actually put yourself out there and take a stand on a plethora of issues which is what real evaluators do every day, every year.

    And how exactly do you already know that Weeden will be a worse pro than Tannehill, anyway?

    We already have a Ryan, Tannehill that is. Revist this in 3 years when Tannehill is actually better than Matty Ice, when Tannehill wins his first playoff game in year 2.

    It will be nice if that ends up the case.

    Seriously, where do you come up with this stuff?? You hide under Ireland's bed at night? How do you know how Ireland feels in hindsight??? Ive heard Parcells say the exact opposite, that he had no regrets taking Long because it was the safe pick, and how franchises can be ruined if they get a first overall bust, and he wans't sold on Ryan at the time.

    just last April Parcells said this: “One of the reasons we took Jake Long is that he was a surer bet,” Parcells told King. “Quarterbacks, you just don’t know. They’re so hard to predict. It’s easier to project how good a tackle is going to be, and a left tackle plays a pretty important position.”

    Sorry, CK, but if Parcells predicts sunshine, I'm packing my umbrella. This is little more than a self-serving attempt for him to salvage what little credibility and reputation he has through revisionist history. And typical of all the other **** that his normally closed-mouth ayehole has been spouting after the fact to put himself in a better light.

Don't necessarily disagree with the Long pick, but either way, just ain't buyin' it!

    I agree with Vaark, there's no way we can truly know how things went down. I know Ck has theories about the role of the top people in the organization in every important decision and all that, but the problem with those theories is that the more we repeat them, the more we forget they're only theories and the more we start to think of them as fact. I prefer to stay as close to the truth as possible: we have no idea who wanted who how much and how the power tugging went down.
    Why so gloomy?

    Parcells is only concerned with his legacy. and he's trying to salvage it after a few miserable years in miami where the most significant thing he did was roll around on a golf cart and threw a fresh coat of paint on a stinking turd. Thanks parcells.

    parcells drafted long.
    parcells drafted pat white.
    parcells drafted chad henne.
    parcells sat on his ass collected millions and left when the paint started to come off the turd.

    Oh no, not this again, people need to get over it already.
