    Dolphins Talent Acquisition Failures on Display in SF/ATL Game

    Today's playoff game between San Francisco and Atlanta highlights two of the most important talent acquisition failures of the Ireland era:

    a. The epic fiasco of the failed attempt to hire Jim Harbaugh as our head coach.
    b. The disastrous decision to choose Jake Long instead of Matt Ryan as the first overall pick in the draft.

    As you sit down to watch today's game, consider these two talent acquisition failures along with our four consecutive losing seasons and ask yourself where would the Dolphins be if we had gotten either of these two situations right.

    Bill Parcells is to blame for missing out on Matt Ryan.

    Fans need to get that straight.


    - Hall of Fame Safety Rod Woodson on Dan Marino playing in today's NFL:
    "...the best quarterback I believe is Dan Marino..."
    "If he played with these rules, he'd throw for 100,000 yards."

    Touchdown!
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    Technically, we could have drafted all 4 QB's that are playing today.

    They'll be around until Jeff ireland is gone. There's nothing like screwing up the most important draft pick the franchise has had in the last decade to cement a reputation.
