Hey fellow Dolphins, I am starting a new segment here on the Phinsider called thoughts, it will be done once a week on friday at anytime usually around 3:00, but today a little earlier. On this segment of thoughts I will be talking about our new DC, F/A, Trading, the draft, and as usual, my thought of the day. So, let me start me start off by talking about our new DC and who it will be
DC - Now I bet many of you will disagree with my first thought, but I don't care who our defensive coordinator is because I believe that if you have a good defense you got it, now don't get me wrong, I don't think it's completly unimportant because I know someone needs to call the plays, when our linebackers cover the tight end, when our safety blitzes, when our corners double up a wide reciever, and etc. But I don't think we should spend too much time on finding one, I am sure Bill Parcells and the trifecta have a lot of good connections and I don't think we should have to worry too much about this, but we need someone, and I think we should look into Bill Cowher, now I know he is more of a head coach, but when he coached pittsburg, there defense was really good, so i think Bill should at least try to fish him here into Miami.
F/A - Now onto F/A, not speaking for everybody, but I am pretty sure most of our biggest wish is to aquire Vince Wilfork. 1. We are big need of a big man to stope the run. 2. It would kill the hated Patriots. 3. Plus it would actually give us an elite player. Now, Vince Wilfork is great, but an even bigger need is probably at wide reciever. Obviously, the biggest name out there is Brandon marshall, and there are a mixed emotions on him, as well as mixed emotions on Anquan Boldin considering his injury past. other needs include safety, inside linebacker, and kick returner, now obviously, most of us would like to see Vince Wilfork, Brandon Marshall, Carlos Dansby, Joshua Cribbs, and Troy Polumalu fill those needs but that is not really possible. So, in reality, out of those guys I would like to push for Vince Wilfork the most. For wide reciever, I am really intrigued by Anquan Boldin beacause he is not a diva, he doesn't cost that much, and he is a legit #1. For the inside linebacker, I would like to draft one of those, which I will talk about in a little while. And finally for safety, I think this is the least of out worries, because we got a pretty good trio to work with, Wilson/Culver/Clemons, but i would like to try and steal a star in the 4th or 5th round in the draft.
Trading - Ok, for trading, I believe we need to trade for Joshua Cribbs because besides for the jets game, Teddy Ginn was not a very good return man this year, and Cribbs could help us with our wide reciever problem as well, even though we already have our version of Cribbs at reciever, Davone Bess. Other then Josh Cribbs, i think we need to let Fasano walk and trade for Tony Sheffler from the Denver Broncos.
Draft - Finally, i'll talk about the draft, now we do have a pretty high first round pick and a pretty high second round pick and so on. Now for the first round pick, I believe who we pick is up to Denver, let me explain. They have the pick right before us and if Brandon Marshall doesn't remain with them, I believe they draft Dez Bryant, but if he does stay with them, I believe they draft Rolando McClain. I think whoever they draft, we draft the other guy, now assuming Marshall is not staying with them, I believe they are going to draft Dez Bryant. With that being said, I have to believe we are going to draft Rolando McClain and that will be great for us, it will fill one of our biggest needs at inside linebacker. For the secound round I hope we draft Mount Cody (Terrence Cody), that is if we aquire Vince Wilfork or not, I still think we should aquire this guy, he is huge and very talented, plus he is an all around good guy. The other rounds go as follows 3rd round - Wide reciever, 4th round - Safety, 5th round - Right tackle, 6th round - tightend/cornerback, and 7th round - outside linebacker/quaterback
thought of the day - Vince Wilfork, please come home
