Philbin won't hire an OC with HC experience because that would threaten his own position as HC next season. Props for the Petticoat Junction reference. Were those hotties skinny-dipping in that water tower? I like to think so.

Rodger Saffold STL Rams. Got bumped f/ LT to RT when Jake came to town and didn't like it. Good player, young. A little banged up now but a change of scenery may do wonders.

Eugene Monroe - STB former tackle for the Jax Jags Roger Safford - STB former tackle for the Stl Rams Joekle and Long replaced a couple of pretty good young LTs.

Calm down Mando. Joe and Jeff obviously have a plan at cornerback and here's what I think it is. Draft a couple, sign a couple UFA's, sign a couple vets this summer, open up the competition and may the best football players win. Relying on other teams cast-offs and head cases (and CB's MAY be worse than WR's as far as prima-donnas go) won't go in this organization anymore. Consistency comes from discipline and undisciplined ballers need not apply.

Love the moves. Airwaves and sports pages are filled with homers chewing sour grapes that their teams aren't making the same moves. Wallace WAS worth the money because he's young, fast and can change the way teams defence us just by lining. Is it a lot of money? Yes, but that's what it costs to get your guy on day 1 of FA. Same with Ellerbe. Is he Ray Lewis? No, he's the guy the SB champs were counting on to replace Lewis. Good enough for me.

Why not? A collar bone is not a knee. That Miami sun would warm his old bones. If Philbin thinks CW can still play and contribute on the field and in the locker room I say it's a great move. One less need to fill in the draft...

You're chances of busting on a 1st rd pick go up exponentially when you draft for "need" instead of "best available". That's not to say the Dolphins should ignore their needs but to draft a WR at 12 when there are none worthy of a top 20 pick seems like bad poker. Lets get some great/good football players on this squad!

Sounds to me like the coach wants players who work hard and are coach-able. Davis, Johnson, Marshall and Young at the time they were release or traded failed to meet those requirements. Talent isn't enough in this league. Can't blame the coach for building a team culture he's comfortable with.

I'm just getting used to Miami signing a kid with only 19 starts @ the 8th slot. If the FO buckles to fan pressure to FINALLY sign a "franchise" QB and trades up to the 3 slot to take Tannehill I think it would be a mistake. Minne is going to want a LOT to miss out on Kalill and, personallly, I think Cleveland is blowing smoke about the whole thing. They needs RB and Richardson is too good to pass up. Keep your pah-pah-poker face Jeffy and RTI will fall to you. If some fool jumps in and snaps him up go ahead and take DeCastro. It won' be popular but it will pay out with wins.

Zero Pro Bowls = Not elite Zach's 7 Pro Bowls = Elite Period. Point blank. Armando is clearly stating the obvious. But he's right! We're over-paying for that position. So all youse grammer-geeks and Jest-flunkies can kiss his and mine arses.

I don't understand how ANYBODY can rip Ireland so soon after St. Patrick's day.

Gerrard is 2 years older and 3 inches shorter than Byron Leftwich. Not that I want him either. Just sayin...

Now's about the time the front office offers Moore a contract extension, right?

I'm going to start rooting for the hurricanes. Not UM but rather any hurricane that is available to wipe out the Fins HQ in Davie. I'm not even sure a tropical depression would be willing to come to Miami at this point. Does anybody have Dexter's digits?

OK, nobody laugh. Rex Grossman. Just kidding. Everybody can laugh now. Seriously, I meant Bruce Gradkowski. Ross, baby. Make it happen.

What if STL wants Jake Long as part of the the RG III compensation. What then? Huh?

Sign Mario Williams and some good safeties. Draft OL (again) and let Moore and a FA and/or rookie QB battle it out for #1. Ireland and his scouts get another year to find a franchise QB. That is ALL they should be thinking about.

If we want an older NFL QB with a winning record and proven leadership qualities we can sign Chad Pennington for the NFL minimum and a parking space. His arm is shot too.

Creationists want Payton Manning, a hall of fame QB to drop in the Dolphins lap. Then he will regain his health, strength and form and lead us to the promised land. I prefer to believe in the survival of the fittest. Give the team enough quality candidates to provide a real QB competition (sadly lacking for the past few years) and anoint the winner our QB of the future. Its time for our scouting department to start earning their paychecks.

Payton Manning is 35.5. Nicks and Williams are both 26. Nicks was a 5th rd pick. Williams was the 1st pick overall. Give Williams the FA money Draft another OL 1st QB in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds. Hope one sticks.

Good luck in LA coach. No great loss.

If Bowles wins out we lose a lot of ground in drafting a new quarterback. And he still wouldn't get the gig next year because the ownership has their heads up their ask anyone. We would just be showcasing him for another team with better management and a better quarterback.

Time to pull the Kirby out of the closet and clean house. Lets put a sign out in front of Dolphin Stadium and dump whatever we can before the trading deadline ala the FL Marlins. Then we can find somebody that knows what to do with those draft picks and hire him. Finally, hire Sula as team president and ask him how to fix this franchise. Maybe we should actually do that last step first.

That's a QB
