    Does anyone else find it strange that that everyone and there mother knows that if Quinn makes it too 6, we will trade up with the redskins to take him? It just seems weird that our draft strategy is so transparent. :fire:

    The stupidity of our offseason moves or lack thereof is not lost on our competition. No team has done as poorly at addressing it's Quarterback situation as the Dolphins. Even the Texans that cut Carr and overpaid for Schaub are clear on the direction they want to go.

    Smokescreens are usually coming from a GM's mouth or quick hasty-looking actions. In this case, Mueller's been scouting Quinn for 2 years, Cam gave him the hardest interview Quinn ever had, and we have Quinn's draft mentor as our QB coach. It would be like Dennis Green saying he won't draft Larry Fitzgerald, which is contradicted by the many years they've known each other and how much contact those two had.

    Both our Coach and our GM believe in Cleo Lemon more than they do with anyone else they've seen. Isnt that obvious? We made virtually no effort towards Carr, and if we wanted Green we would have pulled the trigger right now. Muellers a good GM, if there was a good move to be made, he woulda made it. Just shows you there wasnt one to be made.

    It's really to tuff to know what we'll do. I think it's just the most obvious need for the fins given Daunte's situation. So they all try to play Devils advocate. Then it just snowballs, the only 3 players I don't want at 9 are Brown, Glenn and Branch. If we trade down I'd be alright with Ginn and Brown.

    why would it be a smokescreen? makes no sense. WE are just surprised czu we are used to Sabans guessing games he lead everyone to. AT LEAST NOW we have an idea.

    Well of course our interest in Quinn is obvious. We haven't had a decent QB since Marino, we haven't drafted an heir to Marino, and every QB we acquired since then has crapped the bed. We have a high pick, a plethora of picks overall, and one of the most talented pro-ready QB's in a while is ripe for the picking.

    How are we supposed to act like we're not interested?

    I just imagine that Mueller and Cam have a plan or an idea of what they want to do. It may not be what we wanted or expected, but they probably know how they want to handle it. They may still have plans to get Green but don't want to surrender what Peterson wants and are waiting him out. If Green knows their plans and really wants to come to Miami he is probably playing the waiting game to see what KC does.
    If I remember right didn't Mueller make a statement early on that he would bring in quarterbacks rather than a quarterback?

    everything i see suggest that Alan Branch is our target. I would love to have him he is a stud. then try and draft the quarterback our of Michigan state. in the second. This is what makes this time of the year so damn exciting. everybody think they know what we are going to do. Not sure if i think Brady Quinn is the second coming. It seems you cannot lose with a stud left tackle or dominant nose tackle. thanks for letting me post

    Are you saying our interest in Quinn is a smoke screen?

    Are you saying our interest in Quinn is transparent?

    Your thread makes no sense at all.

    Strange? Everyone and there mother knows our QB situation. They also know that we will draft a QB in this draft. They also know that Terry Shea, our QB coach, worked with Quinn before the combine. Things cannot get anymore transparent than that.

    If he gets to 6 and Miami doesn't trade up and Minnesota picks him, I will be the most angry Dolphin fan on this earth. If a top 3 team takes him, fine, they couldn't really do anything about that. But if Minnesota takes him...ughhhhhhhh.

    And sometimes thats what you want....thats what a smokescreen is about. We have no idea whom the Dolphins are going after....and I believe thats just the way they want it.

    Exactly.

    I think in the end if Quinn falls to 6 the Phins will trade up. I know it would on;y need a 3rd to trade, but I think Mueller would be smart to offer the 60th cause I doubt other teams will offer Washington a better deal. But they could beat just a high third. If that happens #9 and Welker to get Brady Quinn sounds amazing to me. I also believe that Culpepper will be traded to the Raiders for their 4th round pick too.

    If its true and we do get Quinn, i will wet myself. But as some know I am an avid supporter of cleo lemon. I think he has what it takes, but either way I want a young gun in the draft this year.
