The draft spoke volumes to me regarding the direction this team wants to
go. Pat White
was a question mark until I started to think about it.
Clearly, as was stated here yesterday, the Dolphin brain trust isn't done
with the single
wing option; in fact it looks like they're going to get into it much
deeper. This is far
from done with if I read the tea leaves correctly. Either that, or they
really think the
White kid has tools.
The two corners reflect a solution to the secondary issues. Both guys are
big and should
give us better play against the tall WR with good hands like Randy Moss. As
yesterday, better coverage in the secondary automatically makes your pass
rush better. To
put it another way, maybe the pass rush wasn't the problem....
I think we go fishing for OL/DL. We're one step closer gentlemen and any
there.. I have a lot of confidence in the braintrust...

Ginn was a top 10 pick, though... 44 overall is still high, and I don't
disagree that it
was a reach at that point, but that's not as bad as top 10. I go back and
forth on the
White pick. I think it could be fun....I just don't that we can afford fun
An interior lineman or a LB would have made more sense---but I guess if
there weren't any
there we liked.....
