QB is priority 1 until we find one.

The NFL is a passing league and the key to that is having a franchise QB. As we all know only a few teams make it into the playoffs or beyond the first round unless they have a franchise QB. And if they do it's usually because their QB played at higher then usual level. For example Sanchez... at best he's as good as Henne but in big moments he made things happen and got REAL lucky. That's why they made it to the AFC Championship game twice with him.


So here in Miami we made it to the playoffs when we had top 10 QB play out of our quarterback. Pennington took a 1-15 team and made it a 11-5 team. Of course he didn't do it by himself but his efficient QB play made it possible, Matt Moore finished the year with top 10 QB numbers which helped us finish the year with a 6-3 record.

It's no surprise that the teams with elite QB's find themselves in the hunt every year Patriots, Colts, Giants, Saints and Packers are always contenders. Teams with second tier franchise QB's are always relevant Cowboys, Chargers, Eagles and Steelers. Teams without franchise QB's never know what their gonna get as the year goes by.

So what does that mean to us Dolphin fans? It means the front office job #1 is getting us a franchise QB and to keep looking until we find one. I personally would not be apposed to using thier #1 pick every year (not that that would be effective) until they got a franchise QB. I'm also not apposed to trading 3 first round picks or more for a prospect like Andrew Luck. Washington's trade for RG3 might be what the Dolphins needed to settle the QB position for the next 10 years. Instead we'll keep at it with our average to above average QB's doomed for 7-9 and 9-7 seasons.
