    Dan's conversation with Jay goes something like this:

    Dan- "Hey Jay, I am back"

    Jay- "Yeah I saw the press conference, you must be excited"

    Dan- "Well it's a new position for me, kind of like you becoming a starting QB for no good reason"

    Jay- "Obviously you haven't heard about the secret pics I have of Wannstedt and Jimmy Johnson."

    Dan- " No I wasn't aware, is that why you keep your job?"

    Jay- "Heck Dan, that's how I GOT my job."

    Dan- "Well you know that Dave doesn't control who he coaches now right?"

    Jay- "Yeah, I heard, but I figured he still has some say"

    Dan- "No actually he doesn't"

    Jay- "Have you noticed the O-line really needs improving?" "I could also use a receiver opposite Chambers too"

    Dan- 'Why is that?" "You missed Chambers 85% of the time he went deep." "What good would another receiver do you?"

    Jay- "Well our timing was a bit off...."

    Dan- "Look Jay, I realize you can't control your lack of talent." "I also recognize the fact that you have a heart as big as those martian looking ears, however it's putting the two together that's important."

    Jay- "Well we all can't be Dan Marin..."

    Dan- "I am going to stop you right there before I shove this football in your mouth." "Here is the deal, I will give you 1 million a year to start the season." " My plan is to draft a kid I have had my eye on for a couple years now, and since you like to throw interceptions so much, I figured who better to learn what NOT to do from, than you Jay."

    Jay- "Gee thanks Dan."

    Dan- " I will let your stats speak for themselves" "Besides, do you honestly think there is a team in this league who is going to sign you to start?!"

    Jay- "Well I hear that the Chargers..."

    Dan- "Again I hate to keep interupting you, but the Chargers already have a half wit QB with more heart than skill." "Get a clue"

    Jay- " a million a year huh?"

    Dan- "It's more than your worth, trust me"

    Jay- "Well, can I keep playing if I do well?"

    Dan- "Oh sure, heck we'll even give you a bonus"

    Jay- "Really, like what?"

    Dan- "I have a box full of these really nice gloves..."

    Jay- "Sounds good, see ya at mini camp"

    Dan- (walking away)"Not if I release you first"

    Jay- "What was that?"

    Dan- "Oh nothing..."

    The funny thing is that Marino's position makes it HIS reponsibility to decide on who are going to be cap casualties..........

    Can you imagine Spielman telling Dan...."Dan, we should release Jay."

    Dan then says: "Pack him a bologna sandwich and show him the door."

    Oh I like Jay too, it's just that seeing Dan today in front of the Dolphins logo brought back the memories of greatness. That and watching all the teams in the playoffs (save for the Panthers) have outstanding QB's...it just brought some things to light for me.

    We all learn at our own pace. Jay is a gutsy guy with an all pro heart, it's just wrapped up in an average skill player.

    I do hope he sticks around, cause I don't see any viable options at QB, and given a decent line, I think he could get us into the playoffs next year grooming a rookie.

    We'll see.

    VIABLE OPTIONS???

    Nothing against you 87 but now the search will be done through Marino's eye's. I trust his judgement more than all of us put together.:) :)

    Good one! Some good chuckes.

    But there are plenty of options out there, and Dan will explore them. He's gonna go all out just like he did as a player. He's not going to put up with mediocrity, which is all Jay is.

    I believe Jay will be gone. We will see Brunnell, Garcia or Warner for sure, with a draft pick on the horizon.

    I just keep thinking to myself...maybe Peyton Manning...you just never know. I remember that interview Marino did with Manning about a month ago...Manning really respects Marino...I think Miami will go after someone big on offense this offseason...I know that we have cap problems and would have to give Manning a lot of $$$ but you never know!!! I can dream...right?

    Go Fins!!!

    but Dan will have little say of the choice the team makes - Speilman is the man

    Don't dream like this dude. Manning is the gem of the league...he's going no where. Dreaming like this will only hurt you....similarly to how I used to be convinced I'd wake up, roll over, and Charlize Theron would be next to me.
    Imagine my disappointment when would see my wife...

    Exactly 39, Dan is just a "football guy in the front office"

    Everyone, including ESPN, is missing the point that Spielman was the one promoted to GM, and it will be his choice on who the personel is.

    Dan is his boss, but I really think his lack of front office experience is going to make him lean on Spielman, and Co. for advice this first year.

    We'll see

    Why do some of you (and the female reporter at the Herald) think Marino will bring in a QB? That's Rick's job. So Rick will bring in a QB, not Danny. Danny is just going to make sure Rick and Dave are doing Ok, doing their jobs and that everything going on is best for the organization.

    BMF is right. Rick's job is to bring in guys. He'll do fine.

    Fiedler has no chance!
    It's so awesome that Marino has the power to fire Wanny!
    If Wanny does good, then great, but.....
    There is nothing better then Dan telling Wanny that this is his last year, and the Dolphins have to move on with a younger coach!

    maybe but the bottom line is that both Wanny AND Spielman will answer to dan, tho. If Dan tells rick to fix the frikkin' OL, it better get done and not with some halfarsed low ball offer to a Wayne Gandy either. I imagine that Dan knows as well as any what this team needs [not any particular individual,tho] and will give THAT direction. Spielman's job will be to evaluate available ppl against the cap and such. Out of the ones available to us, Dan may call the shots then on which one to sign, perhaps.

    I really think everyone is giving Dan more of a title than he will actually have. Spielman is the one who has been doing this personnel thing for years. He is the one with all the experience scouting, and evaluating. Ultimately he answers to Dan, but the day to day stuff will rest on Ricks shoulders to select the players, and it's up to Wannstedt to coach them.

    I think Marino may have some input on the QB, and possibly the WR position as far as looking at raw talent, but I don't see any more out of him, especially this first year.

    They were working together, but there was a few picks (such as the Eddie Moore pick last year) that Wannstedt overruled Spielman on. Rick wanted Boldin or at least Calico...Dave of course wanted an injury prone linebacker.

    This year it will be Rick overruling Dave, and the universe will be ok again. ;)

    I have all the faith in the world in Rick Spielman. I think our drafts will improve from here on out, and hopefully we get some balance going.

    I just have this bad damn feeling that nothing will be any different considering the Wannstedt factor.
