I used to be in the "Jake Long was the wrong pick, but at least we got a good player" camp. Now Im on the WV Jake Wrong orange bandwagon.
Easily Jake Wrong is one of the worst high draft picks of the last decade team was desperate for a qb and we passed for a cornfed rent-a-mule! You can add Odrick to that to with Earl Thomas on the board we pick a flipping 3-4 de?
The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"
I like how lots of people are currently hating on the phins not shoring up the supporting cast for the QB. Oh wait, that's what we did by picking Long, and we won the division that year.
Yes Jake Boselli making the Probowl I forgot the finheaven barometer of a successful season.
For all of the knocking of Shula's drafts (not all undeserved certainly), he was able to get a lot more value out of worse picks in the early 90s than pretty much any Dolphins regime since JJ.
Some great drafting here, especially when you take into account where they were drafted-- Ronnie Brown (#2 overall), Jason Allen (top 20 pick), Jake Long (#1 overall), Ted Ginn (top 10 pick)-- two already off the team because they pretty much sucked, one who was finally let go after under-producing his entire career, and one #1 overall pick who's looking more and more like a mistake every day.
This chump will probably get into the Pro Bowl again this year, but it will most certainly have NOTHING to do with his play, which has been flat out atrocious.
You may need a year to make criticisms, the rest of us can do so while he is progressing (or in this game, regressing). Again, you are lumping them all together, legitimate criticism and idiotic comparisons alike, which is ridiculous. You can't tell the difference between the two forms of criticism?
Where did WV or anybody else in this thread say that Tannehill sucks? He most certainly sucked in this game, but nobody said he sucks overall. He most certainly didn't lose the game by himself, but he absolutely did play a major role in it. Hell, the last interception is all that is needed to add him to that list. That was a flat out horrible throw and decision. A double covered receiver in the middle of the field when you have no time outs AND the ball is thrown well behind him? You simply can't defend that. Does it mean he's the next Ryan Leaf? **** no, but it does mean he has a lot of work to do in practice the next few weeks, particularly when it comes to decision making and accuracy.
