    Dolphins Looking at Eric Fisher at 12?

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/01/2...-dolphins.html

    lol here comes the fun!

    Ireland Haters must think we absolutely have to draft a WR at 12 or he is toast!

    I dont think he cares what you think.

    FA: Dmitiri Patterson (Vet min.w/ incentives)
    1. Zach Martin OT
    2. Bishop Sankey RB
    3. Brandon Thomas G/T
    4. Max Bullough ILB
    5. Crockett Gilmore TE
    6. Brandon Linder G/T

    No receiver on this draft is worth 12th pick overall but both of the top tight ends are.

    The 49ers have 3 1st round picks that are O lineman, if we get Wallace I could care less if we draft a LT. I fully trust Jeff Ireland this year!

    Scoop a pass rusher, TE or DB. O line would be a horrible pick. Spend both 2's on WR's.

    I wouldn't have a big problem with this, especially if they take the money they would have spent to re-sign Long and put it towards another area of deficiency.

    That story reads like a plant from the Dolphins' PR department... a negotiating ploy to make Long and his representatives realize the Dolphins are ready to move on. Everyone knows Jonathan Martin didn't look particularly great at left tackle last year and either way we don't have another tackle besides him, so getting the word out that if need be we're ready to take a tackle -- fan outrage be damned -- is a helpful thing to have in negotiations.

    Combine this with the Mando story on how Long isn't a team first guy and only cares about money and it bears all the markings of a heavy handed PR assault to soften the ground in case Long leaves or get him to accept less money if he decides to stay.

    Anyway, my chief conclusion from all this is the Dolphins really do want to resign Long if they can. They wouldn't be going through all the trouble otherwise. But the start of free agency really is the deadline on this, imo. If Long gets there he's gone. Somebody will take the chance. Chicago, if I'm betting.

    Not so sure. "He can still play in this league" doesn't say he is elite. I think what this says is they like this kid and we may need him. This kids stock has risen prob more than anyone right now. So PR or not, they are saying this kid can fill a need day one.

    I don't think he's elite, nor do I think they think he's elite. But I do think they want him back. That's what this PR campaign -- as I see it, it could be just my imagination -- tells me.

    You "fully trust" a man who has authored 4 straight losing seasons and zero playmakers?
