    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.

    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..

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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:

    It might not happen in the 1st round but it wouldn't surprise me if Miami drafted a QB in the 3rd or beyond.

    say that, then take Bortles that never had BCS recruiting for his WRs or line and beat a team many had winning by 40 points in a BCS game...Id go with bortles in a heart beat...the man knows when to run, when to throw it away and has a better long ball than tannehill...hes not as fast but hes built to take more hits than tannehill and after last year you don't know how shell shocked tannehill is...having 2 qbs that can start in the NFL isn't a bad problem to have...

    also bortles works better outside of the pocket (which tannehill does as well)...if bortles is there when we pick he can be used as trade bait for someone wanting to come back up or we can pick him up...you do not just ignore him...

    Whenever there is a thread that questions Tannehill's development or whether Tannehill was the right pick (compared to Wilson as evidenced by the recent 70+ page thread) I am amazed at the amount of irrational overoptimistic analysis of Tannehill's performance in the NFL. You want to get a realistic analysis of Tannehill look at what is said about him by people associated with other team's bulletin boards.

    It's time to get real. Tannehill was not a successful quarterback in college. Prior posts have reminded us of the fact that he only was able to start during his last two years in college and that his final season was less than stellar. Manzell took that same team and won a Heisman trophy. Tannehill could only manage 7-6.

    It is important to remember that as a pro quarterback Tannehill still doesn't have a winning season. His end of season collapse last year exposed significant questions about whether he has the strength of character to be a franchise quarterback. His technical game has obvious deficiencies, particularly in pocket presence and in throwing the long ball. After two years it is still an open question as to whether he has what it takes to be a franchise quarterback. With enough time he might develop in that direction, but it is equally likely that he could also fall flat on his face. If you're honest in your evaluation you will admit that there are quarterbacks in this year's draft who could be competent replacements for where Tannehil is now.

    Given the importance of the QB position in today's NFL, it is incumbent on a team to do everything possible to get a franchise quarterback. So, if the Dolphin's choose a QB in the first round I won't be disappointed. We need to keep drafting this position until we eventually find one. Hickey is not Jeff Ireland and is not wed to Tannehill in the same way Ireland was. Drafting a QB would be a statement on Hickey's part that he is his own man and is not tied to Ireland's decisions. If Philbin is smart he will also realize that when your GM finds you talent you put that talent on the field. Remember, Shula had no problem with benching Woodley and Strock in order to play Marino.

    IMO IF and a BIG IF we did grab a QB in the first , the only one i would even think about Taking would be Bortles , that would be the only one i would even think about giving up our 1st on , but we have alot of other needs such as OL ,TE , and LB , heres hopeing we have Ebron fall to 19 , but will most likely gone .

    I think trading Tannehill for a first and second round pick, Then drafting a Bridgewater or Bortles, would make perfect sense.

    First Round: Bridgewater and Eric Ebron/Zach Martin
    Second Round: Martavis Bryant Antonio Richardson..
