JRS, I think the shine is off Pat Devlin. Philbin loved him, then liked him a lot ... You don't show something in like four years, why are you taking a roster spot?

Brick, Joe PHilbin does not like to play young guys. He's obsessive about not putting a player on the field unless he feels that guy is completely ready to go. Obviously, situations sometimes dictate you have to go with what you got. But I'm talking best case scenarios. Ireland, being a GM on the line and whose rep was at stake, wanted his rooks playing. He also didn't have a very high opinion of Sherman's play-calling and situational football skills. That's where the sides fractured.

Brick, I don't believe I said the GM has to pick his own coach. I believe I said he has to pick his players. there are plenty of NFL GMs that are successful who did not pick the coach. One is John Schneider in SEattle.

Cocojoe, I get the feeling Benton won't be working for Turner for long. I cannot say I'm reporting this as certainty. Just my gut.

Oscar, I do not know that ANYONE, with the exception of the best two or three teams, draft BAP consistently. EVERYONE addresses needs. And the Dolphins will address OL. No doubt.

Brickhouse, I stand by it. But the GM does have full control so your point is moot.
