    Did so because Leggo did nothing since he's been here at least that I can see dating back to exhibitiion season and has been getting a free ride at the expense of a Matthews or Hogan. Maybe we wouldn't have cut Cunningham who was snatched up for the Eagles PS squad immediately so in that respect he may have cost us exposure to another promising WR or two.

    OTOH, White was miscast, a poor choice, but he was a fine young man who reflected well on the organization rather than "tarnishing" it. I remember during a veterans honoring ceremony upiin Foxboro, he's the only one who shook each of the military's hands and thanked them for their service. He tried his hardest, but unfortunately it wasn't near good enough and I wish him the best whatever he ends up doing.
    yep Pat tried hard, except for refusing to switch to WR.

    I think the answer is Pat not just because he was a 2nd round pick, but because we drafted him to be a weapon.

    Legadu was signed to a 1 year contract with the expectations of him being camp fodder but he showed well during OTAs, OchoCinco had his episode, and Hartline had injuries. He wasn't signed to be a weapon and he had been known as a solid 3/4 WR in San Diego.

    Pat White was drafted to add another dimension to the Wildcat, but he never looked good. Hell, even Legadu had a couple catches in the preseason, White looked terrible against the 5th and 6th stringers. Plus that added dimension with him in the Wildcat? Turned into Pat handing the ball off in the shotgun. And I'll never forget him throwing a three yard pass into the dirt when the RB had NOBODY around him.

    At least Pat White got us a couple of first downs in that "Pistol" formation we ran a couple of times. Too bad we lost a 2nd rd. pick on him. Naanee did absolutely nothing but fumble his only touch.

    Well for those that are interested,

    Pat White is pursueing an acting career.

    Hopefully he is better at that than football?

    Comparing both is a crying game.
    Pat White costed a 2nd round pick that would have been a talent WR Mike Wallace. Also he was planned to execute the Wildcat and that was a disastrous waste of opportunities that delayed Chad Henne's development.
    On the other side Legedu Naanee was a relative cheap free agent that used a spot on a roster, that spot could have been used for similar quality WR or moderated talent elsewhere. A pathetic play turned him into laughingstock.

    Costs: A 2nd round pick & 1 high quality roster spot VS 1 low quality roster spot. ==================> Pat White
    Best Case Opportunity: A rookie Mike Wallace VS Today's Braylon Edwards. =====================> Pat White
    Team Expectations: A wildcat QB for 1/3 of the playbook VS WR2 role. ========================> Pat White
    Team Dependency: QB3 without functional replacement VS WR3 with 2-3 replacements. =============> Pat White
    Results: 0 of 5 passes, 81 rushing yards, 1 fumble in 13 games VS 1 pass, 19 yards, 1 fumble in 4 games. => Legedu Naanee
    Team Record: 6-7 VS 1-3. ====================================================> Legedu Naanee
    Effort: Made his best but was knocked out while playing VS Dropped or fumbled every pass on him. ======> Legedu Naanee

    DOLPHINS' WORST PLAYER WAS : PAT WHITE

    2nd round picks should be starters. Not niche or gimmick players.

    QFT! I actually think The Rancid Tuna, still on his ego trip to become a franchise rebuilder and prove that a contemporized version of the Single Wing works well, was scared that Belicheat was gonna grab White if we let him go by (and there was a rumor of the Pats strong interest) and end up out-Wildcatting our wildcat with White as the linchpin. Just another way Parcells screwed us.

    **** it...I'm just glad neither of them are on the team anymore.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.
