    Hopefully Hickey can help turn this thing around and get the Dolphins back to the playoffs.

    Ireland was fired because of the 58 sacks and the Martin fiasco and poor OL drafting and not signing Albert last year.

    5 169 J.R. Tolver WR San Diego State
    6 181 Corey Jenkins LB South Carolina
    6 209 Tim Provost -- San Jose State
    6 213 Yeremiah Bell DB Eastern Kentucky (Still in the League)
    7 248 Davern Williams DT Troy State
    2004 Draft
    1 19 Vernon Carey T Miami (Fla.) (Still in the League)
    4 102 Will Poole CB USC

    1 2 Ronnie Brown RB Auburn (Still in the League)
    2 46 Matt Roth DE Iowa
    3 70 Channing Crowder OLB Florida
    4 104 Travis Daniels CB Louisiana State
    5 162 Anthony Alabi T Texas Christian
    7 216 Kevin Vickerson DT Michigan State (Still in the League)

    A source tells me that Joe Philbin would not be overly mad if we win the super bowl this season

    I'm just hoping for better tasting Hot Dogs at the game...

    The current Hot Dog situation at the stadium needs to be improved in a major way. I'm a firm believer that if you bring in quality Hot Dog's over quantity this team has a chance to turn it all around. It all starts there IMO... Make that change and this team is at least winning 9 games this season, and I'll stop sneaking in my own Hot Dogs.

    The Draft... Although I'm excited it's almost here, we've been let down so many years with mediocre or straight up busts that my expectations have gone down the tubes. With that being said, I always get excited this time of year just to be let down and I just hope this year will be different.

    Disagree on their assessment that this draft is deep at linebacker...it's not. There are more 3-4 OLBs in this draft but not many 4-3 OLBs...again, if the glove don't fit you must not draft for the sake of saying you drafted said position...or something like that.
