While on the subject of the historical Dolphins...

There have been alot of really interesting posts about the path the Dolphins have taken over the last 15+ years. I really think there demise has to do with the fact that the organization has never been great at developing talented prospects, and I think it has to do with Dan Marino being a superstar for so many years. At some point, he was going to retire, or get forced out. But there was never a young backup QB waiting in the wings. I think because he was so good, the organization took his talents for granted and the philosophy has always been to work with what we have now. Look at NE. Clearly, they know how to develop talent. There is always someone standing by, ready to make their mark. Today, we have a good, young QB. He has alot of potential, but I am afraid the entire organization - FO, coaches, players, fans - are in such a win-now mode, that even if we did draft a QB in the first round next year, there would be tremendous pressure to play him on day 1. A football team is very much like a business. If the managers don't plan for the future, then the future will be lousy. On that note, and this was why I was putting a post together, there is a great special on the NFL On demand network about Marino. Really good footage of the glory days and some interesting comments by the contributors. I had forgotten that Jaworski was a backup QB for a season or two. Check it out. I have Verizon; not sure if it matters.
