    Based upon what exactly?
    This is just silly talk.


    IDK whether Nick will be as good or better than Joey, only time will tell. But to say that he's a 'name' pick and hasn't improved is beyond utterly ridiculous.

    I joked last Fall that the loss of Bosa to Ohio State's defense was so impactful that he should have been considered for the Heisman trophy. The double and triple teams that guy often faced opened up others to make plays. Once he was gone, the Buckeyes defense was pretty average.

    Myles Garrett, the best player ever, clear #1 pick, over Patrick Mahomes, for a team that needed a QB.

    And even that is better than our own brilliant man, Chris Grier, stayed pat, did nothing, no urgency, diligence, wisdom, and he got Charles Harris of all people. That's the guy running things for the Dolphins. It's unbelievable.

    I'm sensing a whole lot of hindsight on Mahomes.

    quinns value in trade is likely nil. im expecting that cut to come today or tomorrow frankly. stills ehh maybe early day 3 but im thinking mid to late at best when you factor in almost a $10 mil payout in 19 for the player . so that's $20 mil in 19 salary you'd want san fran to take on b/t Quinn and stills. basically you are giving them nothing but dumping your own salary and a second round pick playing it forward to move from 13 to 2.

    that's pink slip worthy return

    First, that's not enough. As well as swapping first and fourth round picks the Eagles gave up an additional first, second and third (across various drafts) to move up to #2 from #8 in 2016. Even trading next years 's second (which we will not want to do) Quinn and Stills are not equivalent to a first and third. I mean the Eagles traded us Alonso and Maxwell just before that to move from #13 to #8, Quinn and Stills won't be valued much higher than those two were.

    Second, as usual every other team knows how desperate we are to get rid of some of our players, including Quinn. We are not going to get a a decent return on him when if we can't trade him he's going to be cut anyway. Even if their value did make this trade possible, which is doesn't, we wouldn't get that value.

    Finally, if anyone takes Dwayne Haskins with a #2 pick they deserve to be repeatedly waterboarded.

    It would take more than that .... We need to get to #8 or #9 and get Lock!

    Ease up there, son.

    We treat each other with respect around here. Your posts seem to lack an understanding of that basic fact. It's perfectly fine to disagree, but you seem to be overly antagonistic.

    What's your beef with Bosa? He's obviously a better prospect then any of these QB's. "You're mad at your father not at me".

    Sure. But a team that takes the risks reaps the benefits.

    KC had a good thing going but did everything and gave up a ton for a qb they believed in. Houston did the same thing. Both are perennial playoff teams with the new QBs.

    Dolphins just roll with the same trash every year.

    The Tannehill "haters" will always be here as a reminder of how not to handle the QB situation from draft day to year 8.

    If the above poster is correct and Grier is personally the man that hand selected Charles Harris we may be in a lot of trouble.
