ChyrenB....Ingram and Mallett could have been ours....take the chance to be great instead of be safe and 8-8....you said it right!
Mizzou 15.....your wrong bud.....it takes more of a man to be passionate and say what he feels is right than get in line and take an ass kickin year after year. Everyone on these boards equates speaking up and being passionate about our beloved Phins as whining....I guess after all these recent years of getting our arshes handed to us by the patsies and jests and going through a 1-15 season and being average...we all should live in mamby pamby land and wear rose colored glasses...tell me when a good time it is to be passionate....I'm sorry....I meant whining.....after the pats beat us 52-3 instead of 35-7 with their 2nd string in the 3rd quarter or go through a 0-16 season instead of 1-15??? Mizzou15....check yourself when equating being passionate....I'm sorry, I meant whining....as being p*ssi*s because we get fired up about our Phins and say what you dont agree with!
We passed on EVERY QB despite the glaringly obvious fact (1) QB is the most important position on the field and (2) we DO NOT HAVE a legit NFL QB on our roster.
Now some of you are saying this was a bad draft for QB’s. I don’t believe that and neither did quite a few NFL teams who took a bunch of QB’s in the first few rounds.
For whatever unjustified reason some of you are willing to give Ireland a free pass on both his draft judgment and the “facts” that he relates regarding the same. Isn’t this the same Jeff Ireland who slithered through the roundtable debriefing with Sparano and Ross? And yet some of you think he’s a dude of high credibility and trustworthiness?
We did not trade down in R1 despite the fact there’s strong evidence (from Ireland’s mouth) we had several opportunities. IMO that was a strategic blunder based on the way the draft unfolded. To compound that mistake, we spent draft capital to move up in R2 to take a RB. The trade down we missed would have given us that pick (or thereabouts) along with a low number one (where we could have taken the best OL available).
In the above we still would have had R3 and R5 and the three R7’s. In that case we could have moved earlier in R3 and taken Mallett.
In the above we solve the interior OL, add the RB and also get a quality QB prospect (and if you don’t like Mallett we could have taken Stanzi in R5 or several other possibilities).
Point is: we passed on EVERY QB. We blew a golden opportunity to trade down and add value and (inversely) burnt value to move into R2 for a RB. Those strategic mistakes are obvious if you care to really examine the facts.

Da-mn Straight. It is agonizingly clear they are either :
1.) Happy with Logger head Henne or
2.) They plan on picking up another retread.
Either way, Tuna is gone but his minions in Miami are STILL obsessed with trying to reincarnate the 1990 Giants. They call it project 'BIG' I call it project "We don't need no STINKIN' Quarterback". Maybe we should offer Phil Simms a comeback. At least then we wouldn't have to hear his mouth every week on the play by plays.
Amen, I mean seriously McElroy in the 6th, you rather take Clay a average TE, than a all pro BCS winning QB in the 6TH @#$%& round!! Jesus come on Ireland AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I wana slap him HARD in the face!!!!!
