Manning, Flynn, Moore, Griffin???



These are the 4 qb's that everyone on the board is talking about and will continue to talk about until we finally know for sure who 'The QB" will be and its set in stone. That being said I'm going to rank and write about these qb's and how I think each of them help us more or less than the other in my own personal opinion.

1.Peyton Manning, my first choice technically I should just have to write his name and you know the rest. Yes he will be 36 yes he is coming off a career threatening injury, yes will we have to give him a lot of money. If Manning is available he is the best QB on the market and will turn our team to instant super bowl contenders for the next 3 or 4 years maybe longer who knows and with the last 11 years of losing I'm all for it. Of course that is if he is cleared to play medically and he says he is healthy its a no brainer, Ross has the money and is his #1 choice as it is anyways. So you might ask what happens if he gets hurt or injured again well, thats why Matt Moore is a capable backup if that is the case. Yes its a risk but, I believe its a high risk high rewards that this franchise needs to take. The way QB's are coddled these days Manning can easily last up to 5 years, especially if we sign Nicks, and draft Rieff we will have the best O-Line in football, no one will touch Manning plus think about it him throwing to Marshall, Bess, Hartline, Gates, and Bush our offense would be amazing, we can draft a stud TE or hell he would prob make Fasano a pro bowler. So this is how I feel about the Manning situation I'm all systems go assuming he is medically cleared to play and everything we just cant pass this up especially when Eli wins his 2nd SB, you know big brother is going yo be on a mission to win at least 1 if not 2 more which he is very capable of doing. Remember our own Danny boy came back from his torn achilles at age 33 and didnt miss a beat.

2.Matt Flynn, my second choice if Manning doesn't check out medically or he decides to sign with another team other than the Dolphins which I think is a mistake because we all the pieces here and a new aggressive coach who will play to win rather not to lose and we end up losing anyways. Flynn is a bit of an enigma, he made the most of his only 2 starts throwing for 9 td's and around 900 something yards thats pretty impressive. Although many like to believe thats because of the talent he was surrounded with in Green Bay. Makes sense, Miami doesn't have the same offensive fire power the Pack do but I think its not that far from it. Our running game is much better than theirs and as far as their WR core goes we are right behind them, maybe more 1 or 2 impact players to be on par with them. I believe their O-line collectively as a unit is better than our as they excel better in pass and run blocking whereas our left side of the line is the only part that excels. Do I think think Flynn can be the guy here? I do believe he can only if the right pieces are around him which I think the Dolphins have enough now and will have more than enough in the very near future. One thing I don't like about Flynn is he will be 27 when the season starts its not that old but not that young, and you figure we can have Flynn for maybe what 5-7 prime years as opposed to Manning for 4-5 years, yes Flynn doesn't have the same wear and tear but before this season Manning never missed a game or suffered anything major. To me the idea of Manning for 4-5 years, with a rookie we draft this year or next as opposed to Flynn for about 5-7 years, it just makes more sense how do you pass on a QB of Manning's caliber one of the greatest ever if he wants to come to Miami. One thing I will say about Flynn is that with the addition of Philbin as the coach I believe it will ease the learning curve and he in my eyes is much better than Kolb.

3.Matt Moore, my third choice for our QB fix if we can't land Manning or Flynn is franchised or gets offered more money elsewhere then the best thing for the Dolphins to do is stick it out with Moore who once got acclimated to the team after being inserted into the lineup was 6-3. Not bad but, the problem with not bad is that is just what Moore will ever be is "not bad" I think he could lead us to a 10 win season and a playoff berth because of the talent we can surround him with but anything more than 1 playoff win might be pushing it. I'm ok with that for now until the Dolphins can find the right QB to plug into Philbin's new system. Moore played well enough to make me believe that we can stick with for the time being so we dont have pay a ransom note of draft picks for unproven players. Moore will never be that elite QB we all dream to have but he can keep our team respectable so we are not the laughing stock of the NFL again. So if Moore is the starter we obviously need to fix the right side of the line draft Riley Rieff and hopefuly we can snag Carl Nicks, draft a ball hawk saftey, a versatile TE, build up depth with our LB's, maybe draft a QB and the who knows how far Matt Moore could bring us I believe Moore is better than Delhomme, Dilfer, Rypien, Simms, Hostetler, Williams, McMahon, Johnson, Brady (Yes Brady's 1st fluke SB win and less than stellar play in those playoffs, tuck bullshit also) and these are just some of the lousy SB winning Qb's or ones that appeared in the SB. Just Sayin, you never know!!!

4.Robert Griffin 3, my no choice but, I only list him because this fan base is so desperate to see a QB here they will believe anything ESPN tells them or just because he was won the cursed Heisman Trophy Award. RG3 the Dolphins fan base seem to be obsessed with this guy the most of any of the other fans and thats from reading and talking to other people who like other teams. I think its because the Dolphins are the most desperate for a QB so they would be willing to take a goalie from the NHL who could thrown the ball decent if Kiper and McShay said he could be converted to QB. RG3 with all due respect is not the type of QB we need here in Miami, run first mentality QB's get you exactly 'ZERO" 00000 SUPER BOWLS WIN OUT OF 46. Of course people will make the argument that he passes more than he runs duhhh, his position is QB so he will always pass more than run but, that doesn't change his mentality of when plays break down your first though is to run not wait to see if their a WR who maybe broke a route and got open because he always has the idea of tucking the ball and running. Run first QB's have these highlight reels that make people go owe and ahh but look at history "THEY NEVER WIN,' who said it? "You play to win the game.' Run first mentality QB's can't ever flourish the same way your classic drop back QB's do because they don't do their due diligence with studying game film, they dont compute it the same way,seeing the defenses tendencies, or having that field vision because they are to focused on being on the run and using their athletic ability to bail them out of any situation, where as the drop back guy needs to make sure he is focused and knows the defense cause maybe he can scramble a bit but wont tuck it and run for a few yards or risk injury. RG3 also lacks experience playing under center and before you make Cam Newton comparisons he still does as well and RG3 is much smaller than Newton, and the league will eventually catch up to this new spread offense and if you cant take snaps from under center you will struggle your whole career. RG3 has already torn his ACL once before which is another red flag, and your comfortable with a QB tucking the ball and taking off probably more often then not who has already suffered a major injury like that. Shelf lives of run first mentality QB's don't last as long either, when they are trying to play hero and do it themselves they get hit the same a RB does and we all know their shelf life keeps dwindling and dwindling. I don't care what he did in college how great his stats were, Marino's senior season in college was less than stellar and you saw how he turned out college success doesn't always translate to NFL success. I think RG3 has to many red flags especially for us to give up a ransom note in draft picks to get him, just doesn't make sense. You might wonder why I didnt say anything really positive about RG3 well he's not a QB I want Miami to go after. Ok he's a great college player who I think will make an average NFL QB, who probably will have lots of highlight reels similar to Vick his first couple seasons then the league will figure him out and he will be washed up the same way all the other run first mentality QB's went through. I've seen this movie plenty of times with Cunningham, Culpepper, Vick, Young, McNabb (actually improved his passing game), as much as I love Tebow he'll prob suffer the same fate as these guys if he doesn't develop his pocket awareness and passing skills.

There you have it and please if your going to comment please I understand alot of you have never played the game of football, I have all my life so I do have insight on what I'm saying, its my opinion if you don't like it or agree thats kool, you can't please everyone but, we are all rooting for the same team here no need to slander people and make moronic racial remarks. Hope yall my ideas to fix our beloved Dolphins heres to Philbin restoring our once proud franchise back to existence!!!
