    If he was a Philbin pick, I doubt Joe is the least bit proprietorial or precious about cutting him.

    That's assuming things are as Mando is reporting them. They've cut other players pretty mercilessly. I'm surprised Egnew is as bad as he's being made out and he's still in camp, esp with the TE coach we have and an unsentimental HC and OC.

    But if it's true more than one of his teammates are calling him a p***y, the writing is on the wall.

    I've never seen so much over reaction in my life. Every year NFL network airs a show on greatest busts. There are plenty of "blue chip" players taken in the top 5 that bust as well as every other round.
    Everyone knows the draft is a bit of a gamble. Fact is, Egnew, has all the measurables (ht, speed) and the team had a need. They were wrong in their projection of him. End of story. Time to move on.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

I guess we won't know until Ireland is eventually fired, but either way if that was a Philbin pick I wouldn't let him make another pick in 2013. Terrible pick from whoever ultimately decided he was worthy.
    People make bad draft choices it happens with every GM and coach that has ever had a job. Sometimes you just miss, it happens. To say if he picked Egnew he should have no infulence in the future is stupid.


    Apparantly Joe felt he badly needed a TE for his offense and on draft day pushed for one with that pick. I suspect everyone panicked when the Colts decided to take two tight ends and they just took the well regarded by most "experts" Egnew wrongly believing it to be a safe pick.

    The consesnus at the time (not with Hoops lol) was that egnew was a good pick.

    I was just making a point. If Ireland can get bashed for him not hitting on all his picks than why isn't anyone holding Philbin accountable for making quite possibly the worst pick in the draft? Not defending Ireland because he's playing with bonus time right now and should have been gone with Sparano.

    I have a hard time believing a player is going to refer to a teammate by name and refer to him like that. So a draft pick doesn't make it onto the field his first year. Its not he first time that has occurred. If Egnew doesn't make the cut then of course that is another wasted pick. Disappointing but that class still has the potential to be a nice draft.

    I really hope you mean our worst pick because Egnew certainly wasnt the worst pick in the draft. It didnt work out this season but on draft day Egnew was a solid third round TE in most peoples eyes.

    The problem here is that when you have been mediocre for as long as the Dolphins have been you don't have the luxury of being able to miss on your second and third round picks. The sustained mediocrity means that you have a large number of starters on your team who are not getting the job done and need to be upgraded. So first round picks must be able to contribute immediately as starters in key positions. Second and third round picks must also contribute immediately as starters. Every time you miss you compound and extend the mediocrity.

    Obviously our worst pick. No one should care what other teams do or don't do with their picks. This is about the Miami Dolphins and the mistakes they have made. Like the pick or not, on draft day there were far better prospects at other positions of need, WR is just one example, and we failed miserably.
