    #1: Ireland and FO would have been skewered for drafting a "project QB" with the 12th pick just like they were by many for drafting a "project QB" with the 8th pick in 2012.
    #2: They had been burned by a similar "pistol" QB in Pat White (albeit, White was much smaller than Kaepernick)
    #3: Sparano was in "win now" mode. Ireland does not operate in a vaccuum. He must select players based on the vision of the head coach. Since Sparano's situation was not one amenable to developing a young QB, using the 12th pick to select a QB wasn't in the conversation at the time.

    I do feel had Kaepernick lasted in the 3rd round, the FO would have possibly selected him because they did appear to be high on him. But it just wasn't meant to be. We got a QB now, and hopefully he turns out to be something that fans of other teams will be posting on their forums for years to come "HOW DID WE PASS UP ON TANNEHILL!??!"

    Philbin ... put it all together in a PowerPoint presentation. Everything about that presentation had to be perfect.

    If any PowerPoint slide had a spelling or grammar mistake, any typo, any scheme error, that was my responsibility, just like a teacher, Philbin said.

    Don't be ridiculous.

    Colin is a very good football player, the player everyone wanted Tebow to become. The fact that we keep swinging and missing is our own fault, we have made our own bad luck.

    Ah yes, another hindsight GM. I think Ireland missed on him the same way 32 other teams passed on him in the first, including the team he currently plays for...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Alex Smith played like an all pro on that San Francisco team. Think about that.

    They did trade up for him in the second, not really missing, just waiting.
    It's time to be successful Coach Philbin. Have you decided what you should master yet? It's time to step up Mr. Tannehill, you're starting year three too.

    We had no 2nd round pick because of the Marshall trade! That's why!
