    Well worth a read, im so excited about free agency! I really think the Dolphins are going to make a statement.
    If we do sign Mike Wallace, it makes me wonder if he is really that much better of a WR than Brandon Marshall was, and does he really have that much less baggage?

    What baggage does Wallace have?

    If hes as good as Marshall he will be an amazing pickup, we didn't get rid of Marshall because of his production.

    Wallace is veiwed more as a major component... not an accessory like Reggie.... it's a good spend based on history... are they (RT/MW) going to explode out of the box next season... odds are... probably not.

    It's a step in the process... hope we take it.

    Darlington is currently on the radio show on dolphins.com talking about Wallace, it seems the Dolphins are all in on Wallace and have been for some time.

    There is no revisionist history going on. Once again, Flynn was not viewed by anyone as god awful when Ireland tried to sign him. The fact that Flynn was beat out for the starting job in Seattle by Wilson does not make him god awful or anything else.

    Yes Flynn was brought in. Yes Flynn was offered a contract the Ireland felt he was worth and Flynn decided to go elsewhere. If Ireland doesn't get credit for sticking to his guns, then who does?
    Well, okay, i suppose people can have it both ways. That Ireland is a genius because he passed on Flynn and hes a genius because he tried to sign Flynn. And no doubt Flynn was viewed as a stud when Miami was trying to sign him. And unsurprisingly, those same people viewed Flynn as hot garbage when he refused to sign with us. After all, Flynn was only brought up in this thread after someone pegged him into the "bad quarterback" catagory and suggested Ireland did a good job by not signing him.

    But as long as posters are so blatantly backwards and hilarious, i'll keep pointing it out. We all must stay amused.

    Personally, i liked Flynn. I still like Flynn. I thought we should have signed him and still do. Even had we signed him, i still would have advocated drafting a quarterback in the first round. Im for drafting another quarterback this year(in a late round). Then again, my opinion doesnt do a complete 180 based on what our general manager does.

    Marshall as a player was never a bust here, us signing a guy who was always trouble and expecting less is the bust, horrible decision by Ireland on all accounts
