Finally ... the Miami Dolphins front office has capitulated ! They are admitting, by their actions, that the PARCELLS MODEL is finished ! Really - why did it take so long ? They now agree with those of "us" who have always believed that QB is #1. We are essentially using most of the NT money for Paulie - to go after a QB - as it should be.(12 million last year & 15 this year to keep him)
7-9, 7-9, 6-10 ? Yea that "model" really worked. Sure 11-5 the first year because of Chad Pennington... shouldnt that have shown them how important QB is ? It did not. Chad Henne and Pat White were our "rewards", while we drafted Long, Odrick, Pouncy, Davis in the first round. DL inparticular was OVER DRAFTED. simply put you can not afford to keep drafting DL (it was a strength) year after year, to the detriment of the QB and offense in general.
Here's a thought instead of Odrick in the first (we already had Merling/Starks/Paulie/Langford/McDaniel) how about trading into next year and "saving up ammo" to draft a top tier QB ? If we had an extra 1st this year - RG3 would be a real possibility.
How many of us cringed when we drafted OL/DL and almost every other position ahead of looking for a early round QB. DAN THOMAS over Ryan Mallett ? Really ?....backs like Thomas are a dime a dozen.... Make no mistake about it - they would love to keep Big Paul, and their actions prove that QB is finally PRIORITY ONE....
WELCOME to the modern day NFL dolphin MGT !
Today I really think we will get either Manning, RG3 or Flynn. Manning is my choice to WIN NOW... so hopefully in the next 2-3 years we also draft a young gun in the 1st round.....
Its past the time for OFFENSE FIRST.
