How long until Devlin is picked up by another team?
He wont! No one is giving him a roster spot maybe a PS spot but I am confident he will be on our PS. Makes no sense to make a lateral move to PS when he has already learned our system.
I'm convinced that Devlin will be so good one day.. Coach Tony will have this engraved on his tombstone
Coach Tony Sparano
His only claim to fame is he once cut Pat Devlin...
I dont know that he'll ever be That good, but I also think he shows lots of promise.
i don't think he will be claimed...i think he'll come right back to us on our p squad...but with qbs you never can tell
LOL... I was just playing..
All I can say is that there is a lot of 3rd Qb cutting around the league right now, including a lot of guys who looked ok in preseason. I don't really know what to make of it, but suffice to say there's gonna be a lot of guys out there on the market that actually put things on tape in preseason. Of course, to some people here that just means ten teams cleared a spot of their rosters in hopes of getting their hands on Devlin.
IMHO ... No one has a Roster Spot for an "unknown & unpolished" QB-Project, when there are "known" projects. Not even Carolina who has lowly guys on their Roster.
We need a 3rd-String QB on our Practice Squad ... will be Devlin or someone!!
Alot of cut QBs end up in the minor leagues ... Canada or Arena ... to polish & show their skills.
I'm sure gonna miss Pat Devlin in Madden online, since Henne overthrows every pass from some reason like he doesn't throw 61% and Devlin can hit like 80% of his passes perfect every time as long as hes not throwing more than 20 yards.. lol
Wait to see if any other quality QB's get cut. We can live with two QB's for now.
Sparano and company cut Devlin after short training camp because he doesn't look like a pro-bowler yet. Then they go and sign some unknown talent off waivers for the #3QB--typical. Then Devlin gets picked up by S.F. or some other team and becomes starter by end of the year...starts in the playoffs and goes on to have a great carreer. And all of us who said Devlin sucked say that we should have kept Devlin and we could have had Mat Ryan and we should have got Drew Brees.
devlin chances were not good when tony has to win now..
Well said. It is so short sighted.
CAM "The Awesome Possum" Newton.
Jimmy "Im Magic" Clausen
Derek "Freakin" Anderson and you say they have lowly guys??????
Honestly, how bad would it suck to be a Panther fan right about now onder:
aint nothing wrong with dreamin.
devlin holds onto the ball too long. always been his knock. that means indecision to me. very accurate. nfl diff ball game. delaware doesnt offer high grade competition.
While I don't disagree with what you are saying, that is something that can easily be coached.
Hell, if Gruden can teach Tebow how to line up behind center in just a week, ANYTHING is possible :lol:
hey, maybe gruden coaches devlin from the PS next year? i am not a hater lol
i love tony s. fists of rage!
also bad year for undrafted QB's. No PT thanks to players union.
Thanks PLAYERS UNION!
I just don't understand the fascination with Devlin, did anyone actually see him do anything good? He couldn't separate himself from the guys on this roster, but he will be a starter this year somewhere else? Puh-lease
IMO, if he had shown anything at all, he would have been kept on this team
IMO.. Devlin has gotten this far in his career on pure talent and instinct... That's why I have said with the right mentor, this kid could go very far in this league... In his limited time in the big leagues, I have seen glimpses of Elway in him.. Therefore, I think, with the right mentor, he could learn into becoming a Franchise QB...
That's why I'm so high on the kid...
As opposed to being a Dolphins fan?
Dolphins were not going to keep him on the roster from the beginning. Their plan all along was to keep 2 QBS on the roster. Henne was automatically #1 and Moore was automatically #2, there was going to be no competition or chance for anyone else. They made like Devlin was competing for 3rd QB, but that was a lie all along. That is why they only played Henne and Moore in the preseasson.
Well we have last years opening day starter for them on our team and he was beaten out by Clauson, so what does that say about our qb situation
LOL!! ... What I haven't seen anyone realize & comment on .....
There's a HIGH Probability that QB Moore will start for us this season, sooner or later!! (Was being called for early in pre-season!!)
Our O-Line will probably get Henne hurt sooner or later ... or the Pre-Season Henne miracle might disappear like a mirage, once the bullets fly in the Real Season & they scheme Henne's weaknesses (probably disguised Zone Coverage).
Meanwhile, I've joined the Homers & blindly hope that Henne shines ... Go Henne & win some games!!
P.S. Henne hurt & QB Moore starting ... makes Devlin 2nd string QB.
I know its gonna make your day if its accurate brother Jeep
According to Miamidolphins.com
This is our Practice Squad
Damn, so the best quarterback prospect in NFL history, Pat Devlin, made it to our practice squad?
BOY ARENT WE LUCKY
Oh stop complaining... lol
Do you not realize that Devlin had the most reps, out of anyone but Henne, in camp? From all the reports he was pretty erratic too. This team had more important things to do than hold a lively competition for the third Qb job, considering both Henne and Moore were learning a new offense in 3-4 weeks.
I myself am at least a little pleased that a QB on our PS at least may have some talent, as opposed to your usual Brock Berlin types who weren't even good in college.
well if Berlin had transferred to delaware who knows what numbers he would have put up
Yeah well if there was one problem with Berlin in Miami, it was that at any given time only half the players started were good enough to be drafted in the first two rounds.
Was just sayin at least Berlin was good enough to start at a division 1 school. Devlin couldnt beat out the mighty Darryl Clark so he transferred
Honestly do not see what other see in this kid. Nothing special to say the least. Good PS player to the extent you need a 3rd team QB at practice so the ones can lay the hammer on him and he can run the scout team. Beyone that ? nada, nothing different then 2 or three dozen other QBs in his situation.
And Brock Berlin transferred from his first school, and ended up being one of the only reasons why his national championship caliber squad could barely tread water.
not a berlin fan in the least but he was good enough to start division 1 and Devlin was not. Doesnt mean devlin wont be a better pro
That's not what I heard. I heard that Moore had a lot of reps and Devlin had few. I also heard that Moore was bad in practice.
Devlin was practicing a week before Moore was even allowed to take the field.
