What position is the most important, especially at this time, to the Miami Dolphins? QB or RB? Here's how I feel about this matter:
First, I would like to say I'm a little late on football. I started watching football at the age of 7, stopped, and started back after watching the Dolphins draft Ronnie Brown. So, I'm going to be looking at the stuff I've seen and not the whole history of football.
So, what position matters the most, a QB or a RB? I say QB.
Yeah, a RB takes pressure off the QB and one way to win is with a good running game. BUT, who handles all snaps? Who was the MVP of last season super bowl? The QB.
The league is changing. You can now win without a killer running game. I do agree that there are some defenses that the key is running the ball, but you can also argue that with the right QB (for example, Peyton Manning) you still won't need a running game to win against that kind of defense.
Now, why is drafting a QB better for the dolphins at this moment than drafting a RB in the 1st round?
1. You can get a RB in a later round. Yeah, Peterson and Johnson are 1st rounders, but Arian Foster and Blount aren't. They're young and may not be as good as Peterson and Johnson, but they can get the job done.
2. How much longer til the Dolphins get a franchise QB? A franchise QB will not only bring light to the offense but bring in ticket sales.
3. The league is more pass orientated. You can win game with a good QB while with RBs you worry about running them too many times and them wearing down. Why get a RB in the 1st round to have him carry the ball 25+ times? Since we don't have a good QB, that's probably how many times he would be carrying it.
