Hell, for that matter, shame on the Colts drafting Luck, considering the last QB to be NFL-successful was Elway close to 30 years ago. Unlike these two with no empirical evidence that they could transition to the NFL, aAt least with Ellerbe, there's a reasonable impressive body of work competing at the highest level.
    This is absolutely hysterical since back in 2009 YOU told me:

    Rex would fail b/c his dad failed to win playoff games- rex won 4 playoff games
    rex would fail b/c other former Ravens DCs failed
    Scott was a bad signing b/c other former Raven LBs were busts as FAs


    It's so interesting how you suddenly change your philosphy when Miami signs a guy. Just like you love Calvin pace when Miami was rumored to sign him then he sucked a day later when he signed w/ the Jets.

    There is an excellent chance you guys are a playoff team and we will suck but I will be here. I don't run and hide just b/c my team sucks.

    As Time passes, things change. Dansby and Burnett WERE good signings at the time for that scheme. And with Wake, even more reason to count it since Ireland had the vision that he would be great and other GMs missed the boat. Also, wasn't Incognito a FA? Tony McDaniel?
    Difference Makers dolphins should target in draft:
    Eric Ebron (TE) North Carolina
    Zack Martin (G) Notre Dame
    Calvin Pryor (S) Louisville
    Mike Evans (WR) Texas A&M
    Brandin Cooks (WR) Oregon State
    Lache Seastrunk (RB) Baylor
    Andrew Jackson (ILB) Western Kentucky
