Owner Stephen Ross publicly declared that Tony Sparano and Jeff Ireland have some job security. That woman on the left clearly doesn't look happy about it, though.
If you were around last year, you might remember our Phinsider Community Big Board. It was well received and hundreds of fans participated. So this year I am bringing it back - with one change. Instead of simply doing an overall draft big board, we're going to go position by position to create draft boards for all of the team's positions of need.
We'll start with the quarterback position because, well, we all like talking about quarterbacks. And there's no question that the Dolphins will be bringing in at least one and maybe two new quarterbacks to the roster to compete with incumbent Chad Henne - whether it's a veteran like Carson Palmer, who the Miami Herald reports is at the top of Miami's veteran wish list (it's worth noting that he belief in Cincinnati is that the Bengals will not trade or release Palmer) or one of the many quarterbacks the team is working out prior to the draft.
It's worth noting, too, that owner Stephen Ross came out and publicly gave GM Jeff Ireland and head coach Tony Sparano a vote of confidence yesterday when speaking with the media at the league's annual owners meetings - meaning the idea of taking a quarterback early and developing him isn't out of the question like some seem to think. In fact, drafting a quarterback early might actually help keep Ireland and Sparano around longer - even if 2011 is again a disappointment.
But that debate is for another time. Today we put together our Quarterback Draft Board. Below you will find the poll. Please rank the quarterbacks 1 through 5. I will post the results in a couple of days - as well as the next position that we will vote on.
