I was looking at the question marks heading into training camp and started thinking what might happen at certain positions. Not every question mark will be answered with a positive, but some (maybe half) will. Obviously, the Dolphins would look great going into next offseason if Feeley proved he could be the quarterback of the future. Let's say that Carey also shows he can play LT at an above average level.

Can you imagine what those two positives would mean going into next offseason? That would allow Saban to concentrate on his expertise -- building a championship caliber defense, bringing in a young DT, continuing to build the secondary, maybe finding another dominant linebacker. He could really focus on that side of the ball as the young offense continues to grow.

I still believe that defense wins championships and I'm sure Saban will continue to bring in the right players on defense. The situation obviously become more complicated if Feeley and/or Carey are not the answers. Then finding a qb and LT have to be considered major needs and we are probably looking at a 3-year minimum building process.

As of right now I see us taking a QB or a LT in the first round next year. Unless, of course, there is an amazing talent out there we just can't pass up.

"If " is a poem by Rudyard Kipling .It goes like this.My dad gave it to me when I graduated.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

It does a tremendous amount for planning and future draft picks when your core players work out........the QB, the O-Line and the D-line. That's how the Patriots did it.........It allowed them to piece everything together, instead of scrambling in drafts when the player they want is snatched up.

No doubt. When you think about it Miami is pretty weak (or questionable) at very key positions. That's why I think it may take awhile to build and that's why I want Feeley to succeed. That would make things so much easier.
