Many times I have read how the FO has made mistakes by either drafting players or letting certain players go i.e Pat White and Matt Roth to name a few and what a terriible job they have done but on a day after a win where we had three QB's come in the game to win, they have cleary earned there pay cheque.
When Jeff Ireland became the GM the first thing he said was that the QB position needed to be upgraded and it has since transfromed from Trent Green, John Beck and Cleo Lemon to Chad Henne, Chad Pennington and Tyler Thigpen in just three seasons. With both Chads beign knocked out for a undeterminded amount of time I still remain optimistic about what this team can accomplish with Thigpen at QB moving forward for this season. I doubt anyone was saying that when Lemon was getting the starts back in '07.
With Penningtons playing career looks to be over I am also hoping that come next season he will stay on our staff as a QB coach and David Lee will be promoted to the Offinsive Co-ordinator position. He is highly respected by his teammates, coaches and all fans and I would love for him to stay and help this team like I know he is capable of.
The depth has become one of our strenghts with players like Thigpen, Soliai and Reshad Jones coming in and make big contributions when asked. The real test will be this Thursday but I for one am optimistic and not worried ... LETS GO DOLPHINS!!!!
