    This hire means absolutely nothing, just a friend hiring a friend both destined for football doom.

    Why are you so pessimistic about EVERYTHING?
    Your the “poster child” of a buzzkill!

  2. When one looks at the huge drafting mistakes such as on the offensive line, WR Parker and QB Ryan Tannehill something has to be done to change the talent being drafted. Tannehill was considered a franchise QB and the Dolphins stuck to that horrific misjudgement. Everyone makes mistakes but if your a fan all you can do is cry given the insane decisions made for this franchise over the last 10 or more years.

    Exactly!
    So what do the Dolphins do now?
    Promote the guy who was involved in most of these draft choices!

    And we wonder why this dumpster fire rages on and on?

  4. I don’t know as much about the Dolphins as some of you but I don’t think their draft picks overall have been as bad as you think. Granted there have been some terrible first rounders. It’s just that a few of our draft picks are playing pretty good on other teams. I think it’s been a case of spending to much on free agents that came with big reputations and very little difference making contributions. Coaches that have got rid of young players that they don’t get along with.
