Like a Blake Bortles or Teddy Bridgewater.
Well we're not going to. Soooooo
Fire the gm, the coach, the cleaner and anyone else who didn't fight to fix an actual weakness and instead took a meh qb
that's the same reaction i will be giving if the jets don't
If Hickey were to do that.....he is preparing the fanbase and team for another 50 sack season and admitting he needs a back up to get through the season.
If it happened, I would not order the Ticket nor go to the games I am planning on going to.
I'd have my cat visit the Dolphin front office
Thanks for that tidbit.
It would send a loud message that Hickey and Philbin do not believe that RT is a franchise QB.
I hope they traded back if they did this...But, it would mean they are aware that you MUST have a franchise QB, and if RT doesn't take the next step, they have a plan I know Homerville won't be happy, and honestly I think we have too many holes and need to roll the dice with RT, its not like Andrew Luck or manning is coming out. But, say we trade back to the end of the first and Teddy or Bortles slides, it would be interesting.
Lets hope RT takes the next step and this isn't even an option worth discussing. In doing that lets get him a Tackle and one more playmaker preferable a RZ threat. Then, if he continues to be mediocre cut the cord and look for a QB..
Dolphins would fare better is they just forfeited the pick
in all seriousness i'm not even entertaining this but i have heard a lot of scuttelbutt that the bengals love bridgewater if he gets to them...do i buy it??? ehhh...they should do it if you ask me but i doubt they will
It would be more interesting than any other move, that's for sure.
I wouldn't be shy about drafting someone with a demonstrated ability to succeed in big games. Tannehill may look the part in some respects but it's never fully translated to the scoreboard. During his final season at Texas A&M that team had a huge power rating, lots of talented players, the lead in countless games, yet finished 7-6.
Give him more time. That theory never impresses me as much as the fact that a guy wasn't playing and thriving at an early age. Projections are supposed to be cheap. Eighth pick isn't cheap.
I don't care about the tape. Big picture situational scope is more relevant, IMO. Tannehill doesn't fare well by that measure. A guy like Bridgewater does. You don't need wide receiver excuses for his career. He started immediately as a freshman and won a BCS bowl game as a big underdog against an SEC powerhouse his sophomore season. Give me that resume and I'll take my chances, above all the fretting about an individual workout.
Ya Dalton is part of the problem not the solution..
I would figure it would have about the same type of effect on the team as bullygate. You can't draft a backup QB in the first rd. So there would be a lot of players having to decide which camp they were in. It would also pretty much insure that Hickey would be gone by the end of the year if not sooner. I would rank it right up with drafting a 1st rd punter, in both probability and desirability
So attempting to identify a franchise qb who can win big games is akin to drafting a punter in the first round??? I hope my sarcasm detector is malfunctioning. If you haven't noticed a QB is a MUST HAVE if a team is going to be a real contender consistently... So far, our qb has been average, in fact he has never really won..
So you will take your chances on a QB just because he wins a BCS bowl games as a sophomore? Lets see....Time Tebow, Ej Manuel, Vince Young.
That was my exact reaction when the Jets hired Sparano.
apologize to Omar
I'll be shocked if we take a QB in the first but I'll be equally shocked if we don't take one at some point in this draft. I don't think anyone on offense is getting a free pass to be the starter this season, except maybe Albert.
Scuttlebutt = rumors.
I'm not impressed by any of the QB's coming out this year...
That's a weird reaction after drafting QB...might puzzle a few folk.
Not gonna happen philbin is married to tannehill. If one goes they both go
Hickey hasn't established enough credibility with the fans to even take this chance, the fans would be baying for blood. I think and hope we are tied to Tannehill, give him the players round him and he'll be fine.
When it comes down to it, I don't agree and wouldn't like a QB in the first. But this^ is well said.
This is not too far fetched, let's say RT has the season he had last season. He goes into free agency where everyone gets overpaid, would you overpay for him? I wouldn't, therefore you draft a QB

My reaction would be like that spoof video I saw on You Tube a few years back showing Hitler's reaction to the Dolphins drafting Ted Ginn. If someone can post it, it's hilarious.
can't look up the gif right now but I'd probably throw a pizza on the roof of my garage like Walter White did in Breaking Bad. In other words, I'd be down right disgusted
Thank you - this years slate of QBs are less than Tannehill is right now - this is "people talking while they wait for the draft"
In fact all these QBs could just as easily start to be selected in the 2nd rd.I don't see the genius in any of them
Couldn't find that one but here's one from Tony's last year.
if they picked one up in the 4th round I would be surprised, if they picked one up in the first round it would mean that they hired the wrong GM. :d-day:
