Boom. 100% This.I haven’t been on a forum like this for nearly 20 years to come post messages as a cheerleader.
I come here to discuss the happenings of this football team, and exchange opinions about those things. If not for those reasons?....Why come here?
What has Grier accomplished with this team to deserve “blind faith” and unquestioned authority?
This threads title was attacking the faith of other posters....in a man in charge of making major team building decisions for the Miami Dolphins.
A man that has been a scout and executive here since 2000, the entire period of failure for this organization. Is he responsible for all of that? Of course not....but that resume doesn’t remove him from scrutiny.
Just as the players are accountable for their play and actions...so is the GM.
The Leonte Carroo trade up in 2016 was a poor decision giving away multiple picks .
The 2017 draft was pathetic...Charles Harris, Raekwon McMillian and Tankersley the first three picks.
Trading away an all pro Safety drafted in 2018 for the 16th pick in the draft ?
The 2019 draft was far less than what you would call a stellar draft? Picking Michael Dieter with your second pick of the draft (third round)
In 2020....he traded away a top young left tackle for multiple future picks. Looks impressive on the surface but he proceeds to draft a smallish QB who had a major hip injury, that was far inferior to The young QB picked right after....both physically and in arm talent. The QB he missed on proceeded to break rookie records and win rookie of the year.
He also used another first rounder on a cornerback who has yet to prove he can play at a high level in this league.
In 2021....he makes an early trade out at number 3 and ends up at 6 after two trades. By moving out of number 3 he misses out on a rare player called universally a “unicorn” and the top rated wide receiver. He trades two first round picks to get Jaylen Waddle in reality....The second round is also questionable as he bypassed the highest rated safety in the draft for an opt out...and used one of two draft picks he had left from trading out of 3 to trade up 8 slots in round two for an offensive lineman with short arms?
There is some good decisions he has been responsible for...but more than enough questionable and bad decisions to not crown him a genius or worthy of blind support....Charles Harris sticks in my mind!
