Offcial Petition to Fire Cam Cameron and Randy Mueller
I'm a 49ers fan but the Dolphins are one of my secondary favorites since Marino and to pass on a franchise QB in Quinn for a kick / punt returner in Ginn is beyond stupidity.
Drafting Quinn would have given their franchise QB plus they wouldnt have to trade away draft picks for Green who's going to get released in June if he's not traded.
Very very stupid. You would think that after the Druckenmiller, Feeley, Lemon and Culpepper trades plus signings in Griese and Harrington and whatever other franchise QB's that they may have passed on in the past, you would think that they would finally do the smart thing and that's to draft a franchise QB. After all, if trading for or signing a QB hasnt worked, drafting one would be the only other option.
Wow, just wow.
*Feels sorry for all hardcore Dolphins fans*
*Feels sorry for WR Chris Chambers who is one of my favorite players*
Well I'm glad we didn't trade up. After making a mistake by passing on him, better to not make another mistake by throwing away next year's 1st already plus 2nds for this year. I would do it if it costs less.
If Cleveland has another 4-12 season which is not at all a stretch with a rookie QB and all the issues this team has had, they could have possibly just given up a top 3 pick and a 2nd rounder for Quinn. I love Quinn but that's a stretch for him.
I'm wondering what we are gonna do now?
I'm hoping for either Trent Edwards or Drew Stanton in round 2 but where else do we go? I was thinking WR later on but we already got our guy. Maybe we get a little luck and Staley falls into the 2nd and Stanton into the low 2nd? After the blunder we pulled, maybe something can go our way. Then again, we are talking about Cameron and Mueller.
And to think, I loved just about every offseason move they made up until the number 9 overall. I dont know if to be patience and hope Mueller has an eye for talent like people say he does or if I should just go kill them for screwing up the most important part of building a championship team.
Trent Edwards and Drew Stanton are no Brady Quinn. Quinn has stud written all over him. He's not a flavor of the week type of player like Russell, he's a guy who stayed all four years and learned and improved in each of them, he's played in a pro-style offence, watched endless hours of tape on Tom Brady to further improve his skills and has all the intangibles that you want in a QB. Edwards and Stanton don't possess that type of pedigree.
You cannot win a Super Bowl with a subpar QB and that's exactly what we've had since Marino hung up the cleats and what we'll continue to have until these friggin' idiots who run our team realize that bandaid solutions like Joey Harrington, Trent Green, Jay Fiedler, Brian Griese, Daunte Crap-pepper etc. are not the answer. Thanks to the ******** move the people in charge made today we now have to suffer through another season of futility and no playoffs.
Quinn was the best chance we had to turn this team around and they gave it all away for an undersized receiver who wasn't even the top guy on the board at his position. I guess it was more important to replace what Wes Welker brought than to go out and get a franchise QB. I thought the moral of the NFL Draft was not to pass on a franchise QB unless you've already got one. Unless Cleo Lemon is Dan Marino then this is the worst day in the history of the Miami Dolphins.
I've been a fan of this team since I started following football and I've never been this disillusioned and apathetic and for the first time I'm almost questioning why I should continue to cheer for this team. Screw those morons Randy Mueller and Cam Cameron. I hope Brady Quinn goes on to win several Super Bowls, make countless Pro Bowl appearances and enters the Hall Of Fame.
Let's not get crazy here. We all wanted Brady Quinn but obviously he was not as talent as we though or else he would be gone well before 22. Say what you want about not most teams not needing a QB but the bottom line is that if teams felt Quinn was a can't miss guy that would lead them to the promise land, he wouldn't even make it to our number 9 pick. There's no reason Edwards or Stanton can't turn into solid starting NFL QBs. I just hope that for the love of God we dont take Beck or Kolb. I can't stand drafting 25 year old prospects at a position that takes 3 years to develop players. Beck would be 28 by the time he turns into anything worthwhile.
