What I find amazing is that this is 13 QBs over a 9 year span.  And one of them started the better part of 4 years.
 
I guess its safe to say there's no stability there.
 
Oh....and also...in an earlier post, I pointed out that Miami has drafted 3 QBs in 4 years with a 2nd round pick.  But I neglected to mention that in 2 previous years, they traded for a QB with a second round pick, and neither of them worked out.
 
That's a fair number of 2nd round picks used for a position with no return!  But as Joe Thomas said when he drafted Stofa then Griese - he was going to keep taking a QB until he got it right!
