    Are you unhappy with either Tannehill, Martin, Miller, or Vernon? I am not unhappy with their contributions. This was a reasonable draft that improved our team.

    I really believe the Dolphins want to fix their #1 WR position once and for all with a quality Vet that would be optainable in 2013.... as for who that receiver is, we would only be guessing if we tried to name him.


    I also think they will ty to get a quality rookie in the draft in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    Taking TY Hilton over Egnew would have been a start. Martin wouldn't have been an issue if he hadn't signed Marc Colombo. Same thing with Miller had Daniel Thomas not sucked.

    I put other. The no suitable options comes in from sub par talent evaluation skills as a whole by the team. Not completely incompatent but no where near the top. Everyone knew we were weak there and with the proper knowledge of what you have and what you need as well as offensive game planning to recognize, and convey your specific need, the opportunity was missed. It's difficult to hit on everyone, but we're below the median in terms of hits and misses.

    Actually Philbin stated himself that he builds through the draft and not FA

    Definitely "other". IMO Ireland didn't have faith in our rookie QB, new coach, and no-name roster, so he held off until 2013. Very disappointing as one decent WR could have put us in the playoffs.

    Personally I believe it is because Ireland is a bad gm

    Exactly. He's always trying to patch up his own mistakes, regurgitating over and over and over again

    5 f'in years and on the way to his 4th straight losing season. No matter how anyone tries to cut it,. that totally sucks.

    Four straight losing seasons..... Look up dolphins history and check out how many times that's happened. yeah thanks

    I voted "other" because there was no option for "Jeff Ireland is an incompetent GM who does not know what he is doing".
    I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
