    I hope he signs for the dolphins sake. I hope philbin is awake and sitting next to Smith recruiting him thru the night. Whatever it takes to keep Gerrard from walking thru that door.

    I am very concerned with Alex. Not even top 15 qb in my book. I say spend your money elsewhere and take a qb in draft in case Moore struggles.

    I like Smith, he has the tools you look for in a QB and he was finally able to put them together last year. I think he feels slighted by the 49ers interest in Manning. The Fins need to go out and get some playmakers in this draft because it won't matter who the QB is if he has nobody to throw the ball to.

    lmao, visited the dolphins for 2 days, miami made an offer, set up interviews, he was a priority but miami wanted him on the cheap. Dont need to try and correct, you cant change the truth.

    As soon As Manning said I am not interested we got on the phone to Flynn but he was not a priority not at a starters price. We just wanted him to backup Moore our half year wonder with one year left on his contract and no interest in extending Moores contract. Thats what we think of Moore with his low 2.7M salary.

    Alex Smith is Jay Fiedler. Luckily he will crawl back to Harbaugh, and won't have to worry about him being our QB.

    The issue is why they wanted him on the cheap. Some think because Ireland is an a-hole that ignored his HC's insight concerning Flynn. Some think Ireland followed the insight of his HC's insight concerning Flynn.

    I seriously doubt, Ireland would hire Philbin, to only ignore him.

    I just had a nightmare. Smith does not sign. We cant sign anyone else better then Gerrard. We cant get Tannehill with number 8 pick cause he browns drafted him or Jags trade their pick to someone that does like KC or even Seattle.

    Then after all that Moore decides to hold out cause he is not making a starters salary 2.7M. He wants Flynn type money and holds us hostage becasue remember he is in his last contract year. Is this a GM nighmare or what?

    I would rather have Matt Moore than Alex Smith. To me, Moore is a better option.

    Ireland is trying to save face. He will overpay for a mediocre QB who's not better than Flynn or Moore but is a well known name. This is an epic fail.

    I'd rather keep Moore and spend the money elsewhere...this is beginning to become pathetic...alex smith?? the guy's qb rating last year was only 2-3 points better than Moore's...for 7 years he was a certified bust...

    I heard this morning that our season ticket base was at about 30,000...less than the pre-Shula era, that has to be talking to Ross, VOLUMES...but is he too dense and ignorant to see the writing on the wall??

    When he's asked to make simple, efficient throws, he's done that oveer the last few years. Seems like it'd be a good fit for the offense Philbin wants to run. I think it'd be great to bring in some healthy competition at the right price.

    For all I have seen and read about Smith he was considered the Niners weak link on offense...Why do we want another teams weak link? I guess if we don't over pay he can push Moore. It seems most in the NFL thought Flynn had more upside so I hope Philbin knows something they didnt.

    I think Moore did a good job and deserves a shot and if they sign Smith or whomever,may the best man win.Lets face
    it,when Manning considered all the teams, the Dolphins never should have been in that group.He's looking at the best
    situation to get to the Super Bowl.
